" Freedom is not Free, it is Earned"
" Freedom"
 This page is dedicated to those who have given their all for the freedom of the United States of America,for those who have suffered injury and for those who are now serving in the armed forces of the United States of America.There were some 620,279 who died for the advancement of freedom,and 1,560,584 who suffered bodily injury.This figure only includes the major wars and does not include the Iraq war,which is an ongoing war.There are also many who did not wear a Military uniform,but died in service to their country.As one can see the cost of freedom is not very cheap,for the value of a human life is not measured on any scale.The very first casualty for the advancement of freedom was our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who died on the cross of Calvary that all of mankind could go free.Blood which is shed freely is precious blood as was the blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. There can only be true peace and freedom through Jesus Christ.America has strayed from the principles set up by the founding fathers in the Constitution,Bill of Rights and the Declaration of  Independence. The taking of human lives in the acts of abortion match or exceed the casualties of war which America has suffered.Murder which is rampant in the U.S. is winked at by Judges and the murderer given a slap on the hand for his crime. God's standard for murder is a life in return,simply put the death sentence.America the land of the free and home of the brave,for how much longer, I wonder!So this old Marine says God bless America,may She ever stand for freedom and justice in this old sinful world. OORAH,OORAH!

In our finite human minds when we talk about change we are usually referring to pennies,nickels,dimes or quarters or as we call it pocket change.When politicians talk about change it means the way we do  things,whether it is as individuals or corporately as a city,state or nation and even as a church.They do not take into account that there are three different kinds of change (1) Good change:which may not be good or benefit everyone.It affects individuals,groups,cities and states differently,"What's good for the goose is not always good for the gander." (2) Bad change:Does not help anyone and can even bring down nations.(3) No change: Sometime is better or best for everyone,including nations.These changes are all man made changes.America voted for change and it is yet to be seen what the effects of these changes will be. 
Let me introduce you to a fourth change which can only be made by" Almighty God" through His only begotten Son by His blessed Holy Spirit.My Savior and Lord Jesus Christ can and will save you,change and make of you a new creature in mind,heart and soul.He changes a person from a lost sinner to a sinner saved by His marvelous grace. When Jesus saves you He changes your DNA to what is a totally new DNA,known as "Divine Natural Ability" . Philippians 4:13- I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.This eliminates "I can't do it" from a believers vocabulary.So I pray that everyone who reads this article will consider the fourth change and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord! 
(1)M-Master (2) E-eternal (3) S-Savior (4) S-Shield (5) I-Immanuel (6) A-Almighty (7) H-Heavenly! Messiah composed of seven letters which is the number of completion. Meaning,"the Anointed Christ" in reference to Jesus of Nazareth.The one and only true God.Immanuel: God with us. He came,He died and He resurrected and with the assurance of  God's Holy Word He is coming back again with all power and all the Glory of Almighty God. He was,He is and He will always be. Jesus Christ the same yesterday,    today and forever. Meet Him, accept Him and forever be His. Jesus will not and cannot reject anyone who calls upon His name for forgiveness and salvation. If you do this then I will meet you in Heaven by and by. Reject Him and your destination is Hell. This comes from the heart of a saved sinner who was once lost and undone without God or His Son. May God Bless!
