The bell has rung!

As we stand on the threshold of a new era and the passing of the torch from a cloaked 
government and into the hands of a fresh new one that does speak a promises that change 
has come to the Whitehouse, let not your eyes or ears nor mind depart from the harsh 
realities that the most honest of intentions have strayed into the weakness of humanness 
and the very greed of ones heart…Humanness which can and does make us all sometimes 
falter into the very innocents of ignorance which can make anyone slip from the very path 
on which they may have intended to have gone. 

It is at times like this when a single mans strength is tested and that a fort in the midst of a 
battle does realize that not one solider will be left standing, if just one solider turns and runs…
As they battle to defend the gates or it’s walls. Surely…One man can cry to, “Defend until the 
last man does falls!” but it is the combination of the strength of all those who stand together 
to defend her gates and walls that will determine if a fort shall still be standing or weather it 
shall fall. 

My friends this is the deciding factor of who has won or lost. We as people have been called 
upon to defend our very own walls and gates, but it is not one’s mans cry to battle…that shall 
lead us, but it is the strength of a people united as one! God shall be our shield and Jesus 
who was sacrifice is our flaming arrow that will find our enemies weakness in his fortified 
armored suit! Our fort shall be protected and its gates and walls unharmed. No not even a 
one single scratch to her gates or walls… For no one lioness will hunt alone. 

All claim to have come seeking peace, but instead found war. For mankind the bell has rung! 
Now put on your gloves, the fight is on! No, the war that I spoke of is not real...only the exit 
of a failed government and the birth of a new one is true. But there is a battle that rages is a for lost souls. A war between both good and evil that began, when Eve and 
Adam ate from the tree of knowledge. God’s children, do you not hear me? A bell has rung…
You are in the biggest war that has ever been declared, it’s a fight for the immortality of each 
and every one of our souls and the bell has been rung. Come out fighting...because the bell 
for this fight has started ringing for everyone!

    One nation we must be, strong, and determined to rebuild, and stand for what is right....the bell is ringing for people to understand, this mess was not created overnight, and it will not be fixed overnight, we have a long battle ahead of us...but we can do it....together.......always, Christy
