WHAT'S GOING ON The things going on in our families, The things going on in industry, The things going on in politics, The things going on just make me sick. Most folks don't see what's happening. They can't seem to see what the future brings. Our music, our culture, our kids and our schools, They're changing it all as we sit here like fools. The things we allow and the things we ignore, Will kill us at length like malignant sores. They're trying to kill off our ethnic pride, And pride in our country has all but just died. We hang head in shame when they mention our God, We apologize for being Christian clods. We defend with a vengeance the idols brought here, Reminding each other that their faith is dear. While allowance is made for strange cultures and faiths, Our own God and culture's pushed back, loses face. We sure have been lucky God's so full of Grace, And has waited so long to put things back in place. Our country was founded on God's good promise, And no we treat Him like some obscure premise. Some think it's so cool to insult God Almighty, They think they're so witty, so with it, so fiesty; But soon they will sing a whole different tune, When the seeds that they've sown have all come to bloom. When they've all lost their freedom and there's nowhere to turn, And they see when they die for indifference they'll burn. When they finally see there's a Heaven and Hell, And all of these changes were their warning bell. When they see the cost of their wicked ways, And it all comes to pass at The End of Days. Judy Ball "Let the one who does wrong still do wrong, and let the one who is filthy still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous still practice righteousness, and let the one who is holy still keep himself holy. Behold, I am coming quickly and My reward is with Me to render to every man according to what he has done. I am The Alpha and The Omega, The Beginning and The End. Blessed are those who wash their robes that they may have the right to The Tree of Life and may enter the gates into The City." Revelation 22:11-14 " Pay Day is going to be a blessing for some and a curse to others. What's it going to be to you?

More people need to read the bible and Revelation tells us a lot about the end, which i think is very close, by what is happing in the world, the weather this year, and the war in the gulf, more people turning away from God, familes the way they are, are all signs that the end is near. a great piece you wrote. thank you for commenting on Fabulous Fifties.

I admire your faith. I too believe that the last days are upon us. I do not feel I live up to the things God expects of us,so I am a bit fearful of it, however, I certainly believe it is coming. It's like ancient Rome. The people all became so corrupt and then came the great fall, and too many of us right now are experiencing the bad times. If we would all turn to God, we could prosper once again!

Thank you so much my friend. Glad you enjoyed this one and that you agree with me. God knows each of us individually for who and what we are. I know I disappoint Him over and over again but then I think back and remember King David. He also disappointed God often but when he realized his mistakes he was sorry for them and went to God and asked forgiveness and God said of David,"Here is a man after My Own heart." God Bless, JB

Thank you so much Bob. Glad you liked this piece and that you agree with me. Sort of puts me in mind of the parable of the ten virgins. Pretty soon time is gonna run out and it's gonna be a lot sooner than some think. The signs are all around us. Take for instance how Obama went to speak at a church and wouldn't speak until they removed the Cross from the room. I AIN'T REMOVING THE CROSS OF CHRIST FOR NOBODY!! THAT'S ANTI-CHRIST!! Thanks again my friend. God Bless, JB
