Now the mixed multitude who were among them yielded to intense craving; so the children of Israel also wept again and said: “Who will give us meat to eat?”
A story in the Old Testament tells of how God supernaturally provided for the children of Israel on a daily basis as they walked through the wilderness to the Promised Land. Every morning when they came out of their tents, something called manna would be waiting there for them. All they had to do was pick it up off the ground and eat it.
Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
But after a while, they got sick of eating manna. They basically said, “We’re sick of manna. We remember the good old days back in Egypt when we ate garlic, leeks, and onions. And most of all, we remember meat.”
The funny thing is that when the devil reminds us of our past, we often look at it through rose-colored glasses. He will say, “Remember the good old days? Remember those times when you partied? Remember the fun?” But he never says, “Remember how empty you were? Remember the guilt that would never go away? Remember that depression you constantly found yourself in? Remember how afraid you were to die?” He never says that. Instead, he reminds us of the few good times we had. But the bad times outweigh them.
God gave the complaining Israelites what they wanted, and the Bible says it rained quail—so much so, they were knee-high in quail. But it turned bitter in their mouths.
How foolish we are when we try to keep God out of our lives as we blindly pursue our plans and passions. Many times God will not let us get what we’re after. But sometimes He will. He’ll let us get what we want so we’ll see that it isn’t what we thought it was.
Once you’ve tasted of the living water that Jesus gives, the polluted streams of this world never will satisfy again.
Antonio F. Branco was born in 1956 in Fort Bragg, California, and raised in a small California logging town (in the Mendocino county) called Point Arena. He joined the US Army MP Corps in 1975 and was honorably discharged in 1978.
Branco attended Woodland Hills college briefly before moving to the Northwest. His beginnings in cartooning came while working at a sawmill in Sedro-Woolley Washington.
His ability to frame life in picture created a humorous environment, depicting his bosses and coworkers in exaggerated, but realistic scenarios. Signing “Guess who” kept the cartoons a mystery.
Following the yearnings of entrepreneurship, he decided to take his creations to the next level in the formation of A.F. Branco Designs. His political passion would be displayed on t-shirts and hats.
Other projects he was involved in were musical. His band Tony and the Tigers, played at gigs all over the Pacific Northwest.
Flash Forward to today, A.F. Branco has taken his two greatest passions, (art and politics) and manifested them into the cartoons that have been seen all over the country, in various news outlets including “Fox News” and “The Washington Post.” He has been recognized by such personalities as James Woods, Sarah Palin, Larry Elder, Lars Larson, and even the great El Rushbo.
