Corn plim ents Pasto r Je ss ie M. J o nes 762-7963 There is no doubt in my mind that we live in the greatest nation on Earth. We probably waste or throw away more than some coun- tries have to live on. God has surely blessed us but it seems to me that almost everything the Bible is against - now we're told it's okay: The Bible says there will be a time when good will be called evil and evil will be called good. Well folks we're living that today. Most of the commandments God gave to us are now being trampled under our feet. The Bible says it will wax worse from day to day and we can see that happen- ing. I heard on a news report the other day that babies born in the U.S. are in debt from birth. The gov- ernment is supposed to "run out of money" next month and can't pay their debts unless the debt ceiling is raised. Now I don't know much about all that and who to trust in the government and who not to trust. So my advice would be to put your trust into some- thing that doesn't have loans; debt ceilings or any other trappings and that is the kingdom of God. Daniel spoke much about the king- doms of this earth from the beginning to the end. The only kingdom that he said would weather all the storms and never be dimin- ished is the kingdom of God. Are you an heir to that Kingdom? Awareness for Adul lderly ! nce Ex::er :in Proper D/et :Signs SymmOrnS March 25. 2:014 ~ ,w,~'~ ~ ~r ~. !
