"12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in Heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with Child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3 And there appeared another wonder in Heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of Heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman, which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her Child as soon as It was born. 5 And she brought forth a Man Child, Who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her Child was caught up unto God, and to His Throne. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
7 And there was war in Heaven: Michael and his Angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found anymore in Heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, 'Now is come Salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the Power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth, that he hath but a short time.;' 13 And when the dragon saw, that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, which brought forth the Man Child. 14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood, which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the Commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ" (KJV 1611).
Purpose of the Reading for this Blog Post: I am NOT calling Mayor Berger or his Chief of Staff Smith "Satan" aka "the dragon" aka "the serpent" or demons and I am NOT calling for a physical war in the streets of Lima, if Elizabeth Hardesty loses the 2021 Lima Mayor Race. The spiritual war has been going on between good and evil, the Holy Trinity and Satan, the Holy Angels and the demons, and Christians and non-Christians for centuries. My point is, that Mayor David Berger (D) and Chief of Staff Sharetta Smith (D) and their policies are spreading evil and they are giving strength and negative energy to Satan and his demons. Satan and his demons are Democrats, because the Democrat Party promotes evil. So, what is my point? My point is, that physical world and the spiritual world are connected to each other and they affect each other. If Elizabeth Hardesty is elected Mayor of Lima and Lima is economically reborn, then crime will go down and less people will die and their will be less negative energy for Satan and his demons to feed off of. Thus both the physical world and the spiritual world in Lima, Ohio will both be better and safer for people. Just think, if all communities had good Republican mayors, then the physical world and the spiritual world be better and safer and America would heal mentally, physically, emotional, spiritually, and economically.

My Green Irish Angel Statues: My Green Irish Angel Statues are really cute! They are only $1 each and they make great gifts. I have three kinds: 1. Cross-Bearing Angels, 2. Praying Angels, and 3. Angels Holding Butterflies. I like the Cross-Bearing Angels the best, because they are carrying Crosses. Each one bearing a Cross reminds us, that Jesus died on the True Cross to save every single person from death, Hell, Satan, Satan's Demons, Original Sin from Adam and Eve, and their personal sins. They're available exclusively at Jen's Furniture and Collectibles (JFC) on the corner High Street and Chestnut Street in between Circle K Gas Station and Zion Lutheran Church (NALC) in St. Marys, Ohio.
