December 7th, 1941, the Japanese Naval and Air forces perform a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor Hawaii, destroying U.S. Navy ships and aircraft, killing over 2,400 Americans, wounding approximately 1,200, with 960 declared missing.  Most people are probably not aware that the Japanese also attacked U.S. bases in the Philippines, Guam, and Wake Island that day.

This is a day that we should all remember, not only because of the attack upon us, but also for the loss of life upon these American citizens. 

Let us take a moment to reflect upon what happened 77 years ago this day.  Let us give honor to the men and women who lost their lives on this day, to those who were wounded, to those who were lost.  And let us not forget what happened that day.

I pray for the good Lord to give us strength, wisdom, and courage in the face of adversity.  That He protects us from harm, that He keeps us under the shelter of His mighty wings.  And I pray for the healing of America, I pray for strongholds to be broken, for evil spirits to be bound, and for all people to come to the saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!  Amen.

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  1. It is ashamed of the media don’t really appreciation of US troops during World War 2. Nowaday we don’t hear anymore when media and liberal kept silent about US Military and Patriot.

    My grandfather fought against the Japan. My great Uncle fought against the Nazi. My grandmother volunteer at the USO, I think spelling right? Back then during World War 2 Americans stick together and helped raised money for the federal government to win the war. Very Patriots of our nation. I love it.

    I spoken with few World War 2 Vets and they were telling me of their war experienced . Man, they were upset with Japan bombed at Pearl Harbor. They were ready to fight against Nazi and Japan.

    When my grandmother passed away my brother and sisters and I went thru all of her personal stuffs. We found many photos of her when she posed with US troops during 1939 to 1945. Good old days. She was born and raised in USA and she moved to Vancouver, Canada in early 70’s because she married to Canadian husband and of course she found a good job and she refused to give up of American citizen. YAY!!!!!! She had always said that she was a proud American and Canada couldn’t survive alone without American’s help and she was right!!! I bet you, if she is still alive today she would be furious at Canada government how this idiot Canada President run the country.

    When I see or saw Men wearing World War 2, Korea, and Vietnam hats, I always stopped and shook their hands and say Thanks for your service and I statue you.

    For 8 years during Obama administration they almost nearly destroyed US Military. I was very upset and sicken by it. I know Donald Trump is trying to rebuild US Military and not easy. We are still bad asses of US Military. LOL!!!!!!

    God bless

    • Thanks for your comment Jim!

      I agree with you that we don’t hear much from the mainstream media praising our military these days, shameful. The men and women who risk their own lives to protect the lives of others, to protect our nation, all deserve our respect, they deserve honor, they deserve to be remembered!

      Obama severely weakened our military that is true, but why did he do it? It’s because he wants us to a part of a One World Government, he wants America to fall, this is the Progressive agenda, this is the plan of the Deep State, this is also the plan of Satan himself!

      The Left hates President Donald J. Trump because he is against their plan, he stands in the way of their agenda, and he is rebuilding our military. The funny thing about this Progressive movement is that most of the people who support it don’t even know the real reasons why, they just follow like little blind mice, they regurgitate whatever they hear on the media, it sickens me.

      I give honor and respect to all men and women who have served in our Armed Forces of the United States of America! I take the time to think about what they have done for us and our nation, and then I think about where we would all be without them, what our lives would be like now if they didn’t sacrifice for us.

      God bless brother! Maranatha!
