Hi James ! Hope you are doing well ! Yes, we're definitely at a crossroads....But as I keep saying every single bit of this in part of God's plan, especially this close. And we all knew America would have to fall at some point (still hopefully after the gathering up) - and we are in the shadow of the tribulation, so there is no telling what we could see - the movement towards Isa 17 is probably the most significant, with the annexation of parts of west bank as a HUGE triggering point - we'll see,,,,hang in there!

Thanks scott
I am always amazed how people have forgotten the sacrifice that so many Americian
families have had to endure. The battle of the coral sea off Australia's east coast heavily fought by both Royal Australian Navy and the US Navy to stop the fall of Australia to a very aggressive Japanese dictatorship...i had to explain the other day to a athisist co worker that the freedom we all enjoy as christian nations came at a very heavy having said all that it is with great worry to see America in such a state
Go well Scott
