American backbone, American decision – Marines bust a tune (Video)

American backbone, American decision – Marines bust a tune (Video)

Allen West picked up on this one from the Blaze.  The video was posted by a woman who worships with the Marines once a month at Camp Pendleton in southern California, the home of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force (I MEF).

As reported by The Blaze, “A description of the video, which was first posted to Facebook Sunday by a woman named Merrie Pardee Baldwin, reads, “Participatory worship. I love how excited the men get to sing this song & the camaraderie.” Baldwin posted the video again Monday on the Facebook page for the Caruso Memorial Chapel at Camp Pendleton, giving a little more information about the clip’s origins. “This is one of my favorite things about coming each month for the Faith Warrior service,” she wrote. “I love to see the camaraderie & how participatory worship is. They bless me MUCH more than they know.”

Says West:

And this blessed me as well. You see, I truly don’t worry about America. What I am concerned about are the sheep who lead these lions.

West opens by pondering the conniption this clip will send poor Mikey Weinstein into.  And he has a good point, not only for the obvious reasons, but because America has reached a critical decision point.  The whole world is reaching it, in fact.  It is not for our governments to belabor this, but the people will be held accountable for what we decide.

Mikey Weinstein says the American military must not be seen to engage in such activities.  But the truth is that if you cannot accept that its members do, you will not survive in freedom — not because Americans will hound you, but because ISIS or some other predator will find you.  You will knock down with your own hands the walls that protect your freedom.

The hour is late.  But there is hope and certainty.  It’s not Mikey Weinstein who should be most worried about these Marines.  It’s ISIS and all who are like them — if the American people stand with their Marines.

DONNIE MCCLURKIN LYRICS

http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/donniemcclurkin/daysofelijah.html

 

“Days Of Elijah”
These are the days of Elijah
Declaring the word of the Lord, yeah
And these are the days of Your servant, Moses
Righteousness being restored

These are the days of great trials
Of famine and darkness and sword
Still we are the voice in the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord!

Say, behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet’s call
Lift your voice, (it’s) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes

And these are the days of Ezekiel
The dry bones becoming as flesh
And these are the days of Your servant, David
Rebuilding the temple of praise

And these are the days of the harvest
The fields are all white in the world
And we are the laborers that are in Your vineyard
Declaring the Word of the Lord

Say, behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun at the trumpet’s call
Lift your voice, (it’s) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun at the trumpet’s call
Lift your voice, (it’s) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes

There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!
There’s no God like Jehovah!

(Repeat)

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet’s call
Lift your voice, (it’s) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet’s call
Lift your voice, (it’s) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes

And remember:
