The U.S. Department of Agriculture says,
Families who make more than $74,000 a year will spend an average of $290,000 per child over 18 years.
In 1977 it cost 20,000.
I grew up in a well off family and to give you a comparison as to how much my Dad made In today's dollars, it would have been $ 250,000.00. I was awful proud of my dad.
I would hate to try and raise a child today, what with the tribulation coming on, and the unrighteousness, and lascivious behavior happening.
You know previous to this article I wrote one on curses. When I told Don O'Brien that they were going to knock down a federal building he asked me if there was anything that could be done to stop it, I said no there is nothing you can do to stop a determined attack. Well....God is determined to stone planet earth and there isn't much you can do to stop it. Man will try but man will fail.
Rambling on........ or is it?
Dan 7:3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.
The first was Hitler and Hitlers Germany,
The second was Communism and the old Soviet Union
The Third is what we have been experiencing over the last 15 years.
The fourth ,final and terrible beast will not gain ultimate dominion until after this:
Rev 8:8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
But it has begun to assert itself.
It's presence is........
As the Third beast has been cunning and stayed too the shadows, hunting from the shadows; so too is it's strength become it's greatest weakness. As it dwells in the shadows so to, it's being hunted from the shadows.
Each beast was given dominion by the transgressions of the previous beast except for Hitler and Nazi Germany, Hitler rightly predicted that the Communists would rise up. His problem was he didn't realize that had he of done nothing, Communism would have fizzled, come to nought. If he would have let it alone. If only......
The evils of the previous two Beasts were very easy to detect and were obvious, This third one has been camouflaged. Spotted, so to speak like a leopard. We have been looking at it all along just haven,t recognized it for what it was.
It has 4 heads one body and spots, one head is like unto a cat, one is like a snake, one is like a dragon, and one is like....a woman's. What are the spots????? They are the little fiefdoms that have cropped up.
Because I know by the results of it's works that it is out there. Results such as no prayer in school, An effort to usurp the Constitution; Efforts at povertization(not a misspelling). The obfuscation of truth. The effort to create more wilderness from which to hide and hunt in. Thinking that if they do evil good will come(only God can make evil come to good and God tells mankind to do no evil).
The twisting of the bedrock truths that we in this nation have lived by for more than one century. Trying to control and dominate the church.
Unfortunately for Third they have birthed the Fourth beast. And I say this once again. Let it alone and it will come to nought. It will fizzle and go away as if it never existed. Pester it and it will only grow. The Father will make sure of it. Blame only yourselves.
Just like it was Hitlers fault that Communism spread, It is the Thirds fault that the Fourth exists. And so too the Third beast has met it's destroyer and just as the Second tried to make amends with the Third the Third will seek to make amends with the first Fourth but just like the Third with the Second and the Second with the First the Fourth is being succored but the Fourth with it's knowledge of the Third and Second and the First are not deceived and only continue to set traps; for Fourth will surly destroy and subdue the Third just as the Third destroyed and subdued the Second, and the Second destroyed and subdued the First. The Third will fight with the Fourth but there can me only one. There can only be one dominant beast at a time.
It has been a long very hard struggle but the Third now is in a fight for it's very existence which it will not win, It will loose it's dominion but just as the first and the second yet live so to will the third live, under dominance "till all be fulfilled".
The Third cannot say it was not warned. The Thirds go around is coming around.....Now the end for the Third has begun and it shall become just...... the third.
All of them said or will say we have come to do great good but first we must do evil. There is an evil out there saying that they have come forth to do great good but first we must do evil. Listen carefully people for you know that what they do leads to evil.
Repent world turn toward the Father of Jesus, The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Be saved.
I was so proud of my dad.
