I have no words... We have added roughly $19.5 Trillion in debt spending (just in 2020-2021), whereas the ENTIRE existence of the USA beforehand amounted to about $28 Trillion! We are approaching DOUBLE in ONE Year! (It hasn't been actualized and spent yet [added to the usdebtclock.org number], but it's been allocated and borrowed already... see video) Where is the money going? I was always taught: "if you want to know why something is happening... follow the money." Ok, where did $19 Trillion in one year just get stolen off-too? P.S. That $19.5 Trillion, divided by 330 million Citizens (including elderly and children) is just over $59,000 spent by the USA Federal Government JUST LAST YEAR. That $2,000 Covid-stimulus many people got? Guess what, the government put you in $57,000 More debt than the $2,000 you received. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3Hmzf0FtSk

Article titled “God’s Forgiveness Verses His Wrath” by The Caretaker of Feeding the Flock Ministry About this Article 
Today I want to share with you all something that has been on my mind this week, and that is Gods mercy and forgiveness, verses His judgement and wrath. 
I hear a lot of talk from both sides of the isle on these topics. Many focus heavily on one or the other, but in actuality we should talk about both sides of the coin, not just one or the other. Much of the scriptures when read in their entirety talk about both. Many passages in Psalms and Proverbs are written in such a way. What happens to the righteous, then what happens to the wicked. A great example of even God speaking about this topic can be found in Exodus 34:6-7 in which He states, “The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty (unrepentant) unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations.” 
Below are some stories from the scriptures that focus on opportunities to repent, or receive punishment for the crimes committed against Gods laws. 
Missed Opportunities for Repentance 
Let us take a look at two missed opportunities for forgiveness. In Genesis chapter three we read the story of Adam, Eve, and the serpent on trial before God in the Garden of Eden. God already knew what they did, and is now questioning them about it as if He does not know what they have done. Why did He do that? After all He knew and saw everything before time ever was. This could only mean there is something else going on here. 
The next story you see is the judgement of Cain before God. God knew and watched Cain murder his brother Abel, then came and questioned him about it. Cain decided to act as if he had no idea where his brother was. Then God pointed out to Cain what he had done, and passed a harsh judgement upon him. Cain protested about the punishment saying it was to much to bear. So God placed a mark on him, and said if anyone kills Cain they would receive an even greater judgement. 
How are these missed opportunities? First Adam, Eve, and the serpent all blamed their own actions on someone else. Adam blamed Eve, and Eve blamed the serpent. What if they had just taken accountability for their own actions, and asked for forgiveness instead? Would the story have had a better ending for them? I believe so. 
What about Cain? What if he had taken ownership of what he had done and confessed it before God, and sought forgiveness for it? Would God had forgiven him? I believe so. Cain asked for mercy to be extended on the punishment, and he received it. What if he had asked for forgiveness instead? I believe God would have forgiven him. 
Those that Listened and Those that Did Not 
Let us now look at Noah’s generation. Noah preached the message of repentance for over one hundred years. The people never did despite Noah building a three story ship right in front of them claiming that a great flood was coming to destroy the unrepentant people. God even said He would repent and turn away from His anger if they did, and therefore not destroy them or the inhabitants of the Earth. No one listened to Noah, or his family, and they were all destroyed. 
The city of Nineveh in Jonah’s day were some very wicked people. Historians say they were a vicious people, and killed and tortured many. These people some have compared to Nazi Germany. This is why Jonah did not want to go there in the first place and took off in the opposite direction. Jonah also had a great hatred in his heart for these people, and wanted to see the wrath of God come down upon them. When Jonah finally went to Nineveh, and delivered a very short, but reluctant message on repentance, the king and all the inhabitants of the land repented, and God spared them from His wrath. 
King Hezekiah was another person who was told by the prophet Isaiah to get his house in order because the Lord was about to relieve him of his life, but before Isaiah left the building (in which he told Hezekiah to do so) the Lord stopped him and told Isaiah to go back and tell Hezekiah he would give him another fifteen years of life because he had repented of his sins. 
If you look at these three stories from whole generations, to individual cities, and down to just one man you see both sides of the coin when it comes to God. He gives us all opportunities to repent, and get right before Him. He is not some tyrant dictator in the Heavens without any level of compassion or mercy for those who dwell on the Earth. He loves us very much, and wants us to learn from Him and be like Him. If we do not want this, and choose to follow our own destructive ways, then destruction in the end is what we will receive instead of life. 
Given Time to Repent 
Queen Jezebel was a very wicked woman. She had over eight hundred of the Lords prophets killed, she set up alters to her god Baal all over Israel, she had babies sacrificed in the fire, she had prostitutes in the temples, and sought the life of Elijah the prophet. She ultimately was the high priestess of satan himself. What many Christians fail to see in the scriptures is a passage in the book of Revelation where Jesus references her. Jesus said in Revelation 2:20-22, “But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. I gave her time to repent, and she does not want to repent of her immorality. Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds”. He said He gave her time to repent, but she refused to do so, and instead inherited sickness and those who follow after her into great tribulation. 
The woman who wept at Jesus’s feet decided to take different path than that of Jezebel. Jesus said her sins were many, but He forgave her. Because of His forgiveness she became a great testimony to the wonderful love and mercy of God. 
I have listened to countless testimonies from all sorts of people. Those who have murdered, sold drugs, those addicted to sexual sins such as; homosexuality, adultery, fornication, masturbation, pornography, and so on, ex-satanist, ex-witches, ex-Muslims, ex-Buddhist, non-messianic Jews, and even those who once knew God but turned away from Him due to the bad actions of others around them who call themselves Christians, and so many others. They all have something common despite their diversity, and that is the loyal love of Christ to come and get them, wash them clean, and put them on His path of righteousness. It is a very pleasure to listen to their stories, and the amazing grace that they have experienced through the forgiveness that has been bestowed upon them. Jezebel would have made a great example of the mercy and love of God had she only repented and turned to Christ, but unfortunately she decided that was not “her truth and suffered the consequences in the end. 
The Message of Repentance 
The message of repentance is so important. It is so important in fact that it is said in the scriptures that Jesus started His ministry with the words, “Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand”. John the Baptist was all about the message of repentance. Noah was all about the message of repentance. Jonah reluctantly was all about this message. Repentance and reconciliation before God through Jesus Christ / Yeshua Hamashiach is the message of the Hebrew Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments. 
In Conclusion 
I will leave you with two scriptures from what Jesus said during His three and half year ministry in the land of Israel. I feel they complement each other very nicely. First is, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (John the Baptist in Matthew 3:2, and Jesus in Matthew 4:17). Second is from the last sentence of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount message in which He says, “Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect” Matthew 5:48. 
Spread the messages of repentance, and forgiveness of sins through the Son of Gods own blood on the cross, and His great love for us all. No one needs to go to the eternal lake of fire in the book of Revelation when He made a way for us all to His mercy and grace. 
Be blessed today, and go in peace,
