    Hmmmm .... like ..... beating our swords into plowshares?

    Seems to me we haven't tried that yet, so it rightfully belongs in our present and future, not our history books.

    That's an interesting scripture that you referenced, and it made me think of Joel 3:10 as well, which teaches us to do the opposite, i.e. to beat our plowshares into swords. I believe this is teaching us to do spiritual warfare, but with spiritual weapons, not carnal ones. Paul teaches us that our weapons of warfare are not carnal but spiritual.

    Joel 3:10 Beat your plowshares into swords
    And your pruning hooks into spears;
    Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’”
    11 Assemble and come, all you nations,
    And gather together all around.
    Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O Lord.

    12 “Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
    For there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations.
    13 Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe.
    Come, go down;
    For the winepress is full,
    The vats overflow—
    For their wickedness is great.”

    14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision!
    For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
    15 The sun and moon will grow dark,
    And the stars will diminish their brightness.
    16 The Lord also will roar from Zion,
    And utter His voice from Jerusalem;
    The heavens and earth will shake;
    But the Lord will be a shelter for His people,
    And the strength of the children of Israe
    l.

    17 “So you shall know that I am the Lord your God,
    Dwelling in Zion My holy mountain.
    Then Jerusalem shall be holy,
    And no aliens shall ever pass through her again.”


    2 Co 12:9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
    10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

    Sounds like the mirror image of our country and all too many churches these days.

    Many don't follow Paul's example, they instead go down to Egypt and rest in her shadow. They commit fornication with the kings (politicians) of the earth. I use to do that as well, so i dont judge, but i do share this truth, so others may escape the snare of the Fowler



    Isaiah 30:30 “Woe to the rebellious children,” says the Lord,
    “Who take counsel, but not of Me,
    And who devise plans, but not of My Spirit,
    That they may add sin to sin;
    2 Who walk to go down to Egypt,
    And have not asked My advice,
    To strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh,
    And to trust in the shadow of Egypt!


    Psalms 91:He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
    Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
    2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
    My God, in Him I will trust.”
    3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler[a]
    And from the perilous pestilence.

    5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
    Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
    6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
    Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
    7 A thousand may fall at your side,
    And ten thousand at your right hand;
    But it shall not come near you.
    8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
    And see the reward of the wicked.
    9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
    Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
    10 No evil shall befall you,
    Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
    11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
    To keep you in all your ways.
    12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
    Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
    13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
    The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
    14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
    I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
    15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble;
    I will deliver him and honor him.
    16 With long life I will satisfy him,
    And show him My salvation.”


    Revelation 18After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily[a] with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! 3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”

    4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.

    Yes we were using wooden rifles to train our soldiers with, before the Japs bombed Pearl Harbor.

    You failed to comment on CFR's effort to destroy our sovereignty, our constitution was written for the United States not for the world
