How the Cold Winds Praise the Lord

8 Fire and hail, snow and clouds; story wind, fulfilling His word…13 Let them praise the name of the Lord. (Ps. 148:8, 13)

I pondered this morning how God’s creation praises the name of the Lord (in Psalms 148). Much of the creation, like the snow and the cold winds have no will of their own. So how does it praise Him? I think the answer is in verse 8. It obeys His word. It fulfills the Lord’s will.

In the last couple days ice, wind and snow froze up Texas windmills, shutting down much of Texas.

Frozen wind turbines hamper Texas power output, state’s electric grid operator says

Nearly half of Texas’ installed wind power generation capacity has been offline because of frozen wind turbines in West Texas, according to Texas grid operators. Wind farms across the state generate up to a combined 25,100 megawatts of energy. But unusually moist winter conditions in West Texas brought on by the weekend’s freezing rain and historically low temperatures have iced many of those wind turbines to a halt.

I have a feeling that God is displeased with the Green new deal and with Biden and Kerry. I think He is telling us, “Look, I gave you oil and you shut it off. The oil is good. Use it. Use what I give you. Stop with the windmills. It’s a bad idea.”

A Little Sick Political Humor

From my newspaper: Saint Paul Pioneer Press

It is kind of funny. If it wasn’t for these comic strips we would go crazy with grief. Kerry is ridiculously stupid and arrogant to think that making or selling or installing solar panels will compare to the good jobs that were taken from them.

What’s Happening To America?

In the last four years, up until Covid-19, a lot of good has been happening in America. But now, since we have a new president and a new administration, I see nothing good on the horizon. I will divide this post into two sections: Immediate and ongoing changes.

Immediate Changes

We have already seen many immediate changes to the country due to all of Biden’s executive orders (over 60 of them)—all changes to the bad. I will mention only two things: the canceling of border wall funding and the canceling of the Keystone XL permit.

The canceling of border wall funding is not because they don’t want an ugly wall or because it will have an effect on nature. The only reason why they don’t want a wall is because they want more democrat votes; and they will make any sacrifice to get them. Unfortunately for America, by letting in illegals we are letting in many criminals and drug dealers and drugs. They are pouring in through our southern border right now—and it will continue every day.

The immediate affect of canceling the Keystone pipeline permit has been most devastating. It has meant that many thousands of workers are now out of work. And what was the administration’s response? Get another line of work! Just find another job. Instead of building a pipeline maybe you can build windmills or electric cars. Not a good answer!

Ongoing Changes

Sadly, due to the Biden administration, I see nothing but bad news coming for America. Since illegals will continue to be let into our country, criminals and drugs will continue to flow into every state. And it won’t be stopped anytime soon. Very sad.

I also see America’s economy taking a huge dip downward. I don’t know much about economics, but anyone can logically reason that because Donald Trump in four years made America so economically prosperous, the new administration, by reversing all of Trump’s executive orders, will reverse that surge of prosperity. I think we will quickly see America falling into economic depression like never before.

Thirdly and last, I see an increasing effort to make America more secular—or less of a God believing nation. Recently I found two web sites that promote this effort: Secular Coalition for America, and Secular Democrats of America. If you click on these, you will see that these groups are dedicated to stopping any effort of Christians to pray or witness or to do any of the things that God calls Christians to do. And Biden is all on board with this secular movement. He may term it differently, like stopping right-wing extremism or white supremacy. But, believe me, he wants to make America a secular country—without God, and he is going to make every effort to do it.

The good news for Christians is that all of the bad news for America means that Jesus will be coming very soon. We need to be ready. And, in the meantime, we should take comfort in the knowledge that our new country is waiting for us!
