Stocking up on the important things

By Washington Post editors

While one of the owners of Schneider's Liquor on Capitol Hill held the door for a steady stream of people entering and exiting, the other directed traffic in the small parking lot.

Rick Genderson, co-owner, said when a snow storm is on the horizon, people use the last few hours to grab the necessities of life: toilet paper, bread, milk and wine.

Even with four people working the registers, the line at Schneider's spilled down one aisle and curved into the next. Jon Genderson, co-owner, said the crowds started to come on Thursday and awaited them when they opened at 10 a.m.

Marc Eno, of the District, headed to Schneider's after it was announced that federal employees were to be released early from work -- and he received an email from the liquor store alerting customers that they were going to be closed Saturday.

"For everyone there's the fear of uncertainty, so we buy what we need to last several days," he said. "Simply got myself some liquid bread and liquid fruit today."

And the drink of choice for weathering snowmageddon?

God has been warning for a long time to be prepared, get out of debt and have extra food and supplies on hand. One disaster can shut down our food supply because we are not planting gardens. Leviticus 26 is God's promise that HE will send terror and 4 x 7 curses UNTIL we turn to Him in truth.

Our nation needs to put the Ten Commandments of Exodus 20 as the standard for our nation, as IT IS WRITTEN, including the 7th day Sabbath of NO Work for anyone, to show we acknowledge HE is God for our nation.

The churches must first come to understanding (judgment) that we have ignored His word, and implement the proper Sabbath. If your church refuses, go to a church service where they worship on Saturday until your church does, (Tomorrow's World- sponsors one, Seventh Day Adventists, and Messianic-Jewish Synagogues all believe in the risen Christ.)

Jehovah-Yahweh is God of the whole earth. There is only one God. All holy books command to live according to God's Law. One Sabbath Day is better for business and community since it ends competition for that day, keeps the customer suspended until Sabbath is ended and it allows people to help each other six days a week, instead of some people using Sunday or Friday Sabbath (errors of understanding.) The blessings and protections of God only come to His FAITHFUL people.
