US Spends More on Military Than Next 8 Countries Combined

And that was under Obama.  Now with Trump in office that number has gone substantially higher.  Trump wanted to spend 604 Billion and Congress said that wasn't enough, they upped it to $640 Billion.  So what?  Did you ever wonder why the U.S. spends so much on military hardware?  More than the next 8 countries combined?  Because all things serve Him....

Psalm 119:91 Your laws endure to this day, for all things serve you.

What are you talking about brother d?  The U.S. spends the most in the world because the U.S. defends Israel against the rest of the world.  Every UN vote ends up the same, its everyone (except America) against Israel.  That's why we spend so much. 

Why did Trump get elected to office?  Because once again, all things serve the Almighty.  The powers that be in this world wanted to turn America into an Islamic caliphate, just like whats being done to Europe, but the Lord put the brakes on that plan.  Trumps travel ban was just upheld by the Supreme Court.  That Islamic caliphate in America is going to have to wait.  The Lord determines the timing of things, not man.

Its amazing to watch people in the western world welcome their own destroyers with signs cheering them in.  Why would they do that?  Because the Lord put it into their heart to do that.  They are welcoming and even cheering their own destruction:

Ps 81:8Hear me, my people, and I will warn you—
if you would only listen to me, Israel!
9You shall have no foreign god among you;
you shall not worship any god other than me.
10I am the Lord your God,
who brought you up out of Egypt.
Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
11But my people would not listen to me;
Israel would not submit to me.
12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts
to follow their own devices.

What happens to a people when they will not listen?  What happens when a people kicks the Creator out of their society and out of their homes?  He gives them over to their own devices which end up destroying them.

The good news?  Apparently we are not there yet.  The Lord put the brakes on what was happening to America (temporarily) so America could do what it has been doing-defending Israel.  Every one of these crooked politicians and members of the media that goes down in a scandal is buying time as well.  It is truly an amazing thing to watch the Lord work.

So, for as messed up as this world is with all of its problems, be encouraged that the Lord our God is at work on His timeline.  He determines when one man rises up and one falls.  He is at work making one country fall while another rises up. 

Ps 75:7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Glory to God.  His will be done on earth just as it is in heaven.
