Hail, America!  Hail, fellow believers! O, be blessed and happy!  The world is the loser!  It was not the Roman empire that won the battle when the apostle Paul was humiliated in Rome and let down by everybody!  ("All deserted me", 2 Tim. 4:16).  For:  "In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him through Him who loved us!"   (Rom. 8:37)

The midterm election is over, but the ongoing battle for the elect is victoriously running under the our risen Head, our Lord Jesus Christ.  Despite our prayers for those "in high positions" in our country (1 Tim. 2:2) there seems to be little success.  But don´t lose heart!

Moslems are now, sad to say,  making their entry in the Congress, - imagine that! - the "romance" of homosexuality will continue to have the wind in their rainbow sails, the Bible will live in obscurity and be tolerated as an empty symbol as just a museum piece, and the ritual "may God bless the United States of America" will continue to be meaningless without any reference to Jesus Christ and on it goes with a common comedown in that great country of our loved ones.

However, let us not entertain each other with political quarrels, lies and words coming from hollow equilibrists -  "in the multitude of words there wanteth not sin", Prov. 10:19 - but let Jesus Christ and Him crucified be the "policy"  that saturates our conversations whether we happen to be on Capitol Hill or meeting some co-patients at the doctor´s waiting room.

For the political world the game will soon be over. But to us, united on the walls of Zion, eternal life has just begun as "a spring of water welling up to eternal life", i.e. generating spiritual life to our dead surroundings.

I´m not sure if I shall again put my feet on American soil.  Why don´t you tell your neighbors of your Danish friend who wishes he could come over. Ask them with a smile what they think of his "fanatical" reference to Christ and not to politics!  It could be an opportunity to point to - Christ!

A young girl from Jehovah´s Witnesses said to me, "I could have listened to you for hours" and she wanted to come back.  I believe she was under the influence of "living water" I being a pipeline only.  What a challenge!
