The Writings on the Wall

“MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN”

What is happening to America?

Do you believe that America is a pleasing scent to the God of the universe?   

Daniel the prophet of old translated the writing on the wall and said:  But you his son, Belshazzar, have not humbled your heart, although you knew all this. 

 And you have lifted yourself up against the Lord of heaven. They have brought the vessels of His house before you, and you and your lords, your wives and your concubines, have drunk wine from them. And you have praised the gods of silver and gold, bronze and iron, wood and stone, which do not see or hear or know; and the God who holds your breath in His hand and owns all your ways, you have not glorified.

Daniel, Chapter 1 verse 27 give instruction for all leaders of the future …

Therefore, O king, let my advice be acceptable to you; break off your sins by being righteous, and your iniquities by showing mercy to the poor. Perhaps there may be a lengthening of your prosperity.



INVESTMENTS-Quotes by Mr. Warren Buffet

Warren Buffet speaks…

“The best investment you can make is an investment in yourself… The more you learn , the more you’ll earn”

“The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything”

“Only when the tide goes out do you discover who’s been swimming naked.”
