The following will not be a popular article and message, but is very important for those who are curious as to why The United States of America has been going through the affliction that it has.
Every day is another opportunity to live towards your goals, to see the fruits of your labor. Part of the fruits in one’s life is the words that are put forth from your mouth.
In my entire life, I have never seen such hopelessness, despair, sadness, depression, and looks of anxiety from people in the world when I am out and about in public, especially here in Minnesota. People up here like to say that this part of the United States does better than other regions such as the South because we’re more advanced, “progressive”, and that we live in a more tech-savvy environment; one that harbors some of the “best” schools to go to. Yet the culture and social attitudes and positions of the society of the United States has gotten extremely debased and unnatural, filled with a vehemently dangerous lack of morals, and has taken a 180-degree turn from biblical morals and sound doctrine.
People constantly lock their doors to everything. People turn to look around their shoulder in case someone is behind them, afraid of the worst. Yet there is a numbness that has enveloped the minds and hearts of the people of this nation.
When we pass laws in this Christian-founded nation that go against Scripture, such as abortion, same-sex marriage, allowing homosexuals in leadership positions in the Boy Scouts and in the military, support Palestinian independence while back-stabbing the State of Israel, we need to wake up, and wake up now. We are living in a country where advocacy groups think that a person can actually change genders (even though God has uniquely designed us to be a certain gender and sex and that truly cannot be changed), pouring us into a genderless society where men are emasculated, dumbed down, and underrated and militant feminism is rampant. Women who think they are men want to use men’s restrooms, and men who think they are women want to use women’s restrooms. Are you kidding me?! We need to get back to the Bible, because we need to see where our identity lies!
If you buy a lawnmower and try using it without reading the owner’s manual, you may run into some problems. If you don’t clean it, grass can dry out in the underbelly and may take extra repair to scrape it out. If you don’t put the necessary gas and oil mixture into it, engine problems can occur. So, you would pick up the owner’s manual to see how to solve the problem.
You can relate this to our lives as well! God made us, and if we are having issues with how we should live and act in this life, we need to consult the Holy Bible! People who are questioning their gender or sexual orientation or even their anger, jealousy, or trying to quit their drinking habits need to go the manual of life, which is the Bible! When we don’t do that, then that’s why we have a society that thinks anything goes and a society that is constantly offended at everything! When we don’t engage with the Word of God, our manual of life, then society gets really twisted! And even worse, abominations start to infiltrate churches, which they already have in some churches through the country.
We have to be in support of Israel and its leader, Benjamin Netanyahu. There is a reason why we should not make any deals with Iran or enemies of Israel. Church, please wake up, this is a message to you. The world and unbelievers may read this article and say its hogwash. Some laidback church-goers may say that this article is “controversial,” but you know what? The gospel itself is controversial and gets people offended! If I was just a person that went to church on Easter and Christmas and didn’t really live out a Christian life even though I told people I was a Christian, I would not be a threat to the enemy, the Devil. But if I was engaged in a walk with the Lord, expecting His Second Coming and living a righteous life, I would be a threat to the enemy. I would also be scolded by people as “holier than thou,” “judgmental,” a “bigot,” and “hateful.” If they want to judge, let them, because I stand by the Word, and by my God, who is the Living God of the universe!
To the Christian church in America, we need to wake up! Where there are huge revivals in South America with tens of thousands of people in attendance, people barely get up to go to church here in the United States or no longer attend. Why? We have become numb and calloused in this country, afraid to step on people’s toes in the name social tolerance and coexistence. How tolerant was Jesus Christ of the lifestyle of the Pharisees and Sadducees? How much did Jesus care about the woman caught in the adultery? He had compassion on her, yet He told her, “Go and sin no more!” (John 8) Today’s watered down message that some churches have is “Go, and live how you want! Be the best you!” But we are not really the center of things, God is. We don’t want to bring up sin because it gets us uncomfortable. But we should. The American church at large is not even a threat to the enemy, because so many churches have lost the power of the Holy Spirit and gained a gluttonous life of self-want and cautiousness.
To some Christians who have become passive and lax in their walk with God, this message will seem crazy. After all, their view of anyone saying anything about the end-times or Jesus returning is movie clips from the movies Armageddon or Independence Day. Or even a homeless man holding a cardboard sign that says “The end is near.” Or they might think of the televangelist who wants your money for his own personal gain, or Jim Jones, the cult leader who rallied his own people to commit suicide in the jungle. My advice to you is, start getting in the Bible, start getting yourselves back to church, socialize with Christians, reach the lost, be understanding of those who are hurting, and REALLY start listening when Christian leaders around the country and the world are saying the same things. And what are they saying? That we need to wake up, because America needs to repent, side with Israel, and prepare for Christ’s return.
Israel will never officially be divided between 2 nations. The U.N. may raise a Palestinian flag, but Israel will one day gain all territory from the Nile River to the Euphrates River, so that will include parts of Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Jordan, and the northern parts of Saudi Arabia (Genesis 15:18). God gave this land to Israel as a “permanent possession” (Genesis 13:15).
God’s people are the Jews, and look how blessed they have been! Also, since they were God’s people, look at how he corrected them when they strayed from Him! God had severe judgments on His own people! Now since Israel is the only nation on earth that God has entered a covenant with and the USA is the only nation on earth that has entered into a covenant with God, that means that the Lord will deal with this nation based on our founding covenant with the Lord!
This is why when we turned our backs on God by putting evolution into schools, banning prayer from schools, and legalizing abortion, why do you think society has been the way it has in the past 40 years? Society really is not progressing, it has been digressing ever since Adam and Eve fell. Christ redeemed us from the fall if we believe in Him, but society is going downhill. That might sound depressing, but we need to keep realizing that Jesus Christ is our hope and salvation in this world of turmoil!
The liberal, left-wing movement for “progress” and “moving forward” and being “progressive” in our worldview is actually contrary to biblical notions of anthropology and how the timeline of this world will end. You see, God created time. He is outside of time, yet He comes into time to deal with us. So we are on this timeline which is not lateral, but cyclical. That is why history moves in cycles, in a circular motion. The Scripture says, “That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
We need to see people coming to their knees in prayer asking for forgiveness, because people in this country wanted “CHANGE” back in 2008, but they really do not know what they were asking for. The change we had gotten is not a good change. Again, I will say this, the change we received was not a good change. We are heading the wrong direction as a nation, but there is good news: we can repent!
Listen to what pastors and Christian leaders have been saying about what is going on! There are several amazing leaders to really pay attention to about what the Lord is doing in these last days: Perry Stone, Rick Renner, Bill Cloud, Mark Casto, Jonathan Cahn, and several others.
The 9/11 attacks were very grievous, and it woke America up to the dangers of radical Islam. This attack was indeed a sign from the Lord to wake this great nation up. What happened afterwards as a result? The nation united in bi-partisan ways for a few months, and then carried on in its sin, and has since spiraled down a funnel of depravity. Under President George W. Bush, our nation was given a season of grace in which there was a hindrance and delaying of further attacks, and when he left office and President Obama rose to power, the delay was lifted in the spiritual realm, and that is why our military presence in Iraq happened, because that is the center of the past empires of Bible history that were anti-Israel, such as Babylon, Persia, and Assyria. That is why everything is going on in that part of the world, and why ISIS has arisen there. They are trying to form an Islamic caliphate, the final one, to overthrow Israel and to allow their Mahdi to step up into power. Once he does, he will set up his headquarters in the Syria/Iraq area in the fertile crescent, and then once Israel disarms after they defeat Iran and other nations who try to preemptively attack them, the Madhi, known to Christians as the Antichrist, will move his headquarters into Jerusalem.
What will he do there? People, read your Bibles. The Jews will rebuilt the Third temple during the Great Tribulation period and it will take three and one half years to complete. Yes, the Dome of the Rock mosque is near the temple mount, but the exact location of where the Jewish temple was built was just north of the Dome of the Rock, and the next Jewish temple will be built there, on higher ground. The False Prophet and Antichrist will place an image made of hands on the altar of the Jewish temple before the Jews can dedicate it and they will make the image actually speak, which will be a false sign to the people. This is the abomination of desolation, which Jesus speaks of (Matthew 24:15-16).
I have been studying the last days since I was about 12, and have studied under Bible scholars since that time, so there have been years of learning that I have done. Much of this may be new to you who are reading this, but as you start to learn and study, you will uncover amazing information!
Church, listen up: there is coming a great shaking to this country in the near future. The San Bernardino attacks and Paris attacks have occurred, there have been mass shootings off the charts to the point where it seems like its a daily occurrence, and there have been hurricanes and crazy weather all over the place! Heat waves, blizzard storms in Mississippi and Alabama, and ice storms ravaging and targeting Washington, DC. Even Hurricane Sandy was a heads up to this country that shook the Northeast, God’s way of saying, “Hey, come on, repent and turn from your wicked ways!” If you don’t believe it, look at how God dealt with nations who turned their backs on Him! This is not just Old Testament jargon, this is reality. You see, we are living in God’s Dispensation of Grace right now until Christ raptures up His Church. The reason why we saw so many visible judgments over nations during Old Testament times were because this dispensation didn’t yet begin. The reason why there are selective judgments now rather than full-scale ones are because we are still in the dispensation of grace! This is why after the rapture of the church, the Great Tribulation will start and God will pour out his overall judgments on the nations.
Part of this judgment is waking up the nation in order to turn ourselves back to God! Judgment is not just a fire and brimstone sounding message, but it is waking us up to the truth so we can live a life for Jesus Christ! In the Church, we often want messages that will tickle our ears, something that’s so basic that it will not change us when we leave the service. I don’t want to sit there in the pews and just hear a good message, I want to leave being changed and woken up to God’s ways and be convicted of something so that I can change and continually turn back to God!
God will allow something to happen to our nation soon in the future that the believers will discern as a wake-up call, and the unbelievers will largely pass it by as just a ‘happening.’ This will be on such a scale that believers will wake up and unite like never before. God is not done with the United States of America. There was a remnant in Sodom, Lot’s family, who prayed for the city and God said he wouldn’t destroy the city if he found a 10 righteous. In Noah’s day, his family was the remnant that was saved before the flood, and in America, we have more born-again believers in this nation than just one family or just ten people, so as long as there is a Christian remnant in this nation who know how to pray in the spirit, this nation still has a chance to return to God! 2 Chronicles 7:14 boldy says, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
God can heal the United States from problems that we got ourselves into. We need to just repent! Our nation’s natural borders are not secure, and that only happened when our nation’s spiritual hedge of protection came down. There will be a major increase of attacks in this nation, whether terrorist-related, weather-related, or a disintegration from within, unless the Christians in this nation start to pray. The presidential elections of 2016 cannot change this effect. They may be able to change some laws for the better, but the spiritual damage has been done on this nation, and we need to repent. We need to start standing up as Christians. We no longer have freedom of speech in this nation, because those who speak their minds as Christians are often harassed or labeled as bigots, and the day is coming when Christians and Christian pastors will be arrested and put in jail or prison in this nation for taking a biblical stance on issues. Just look at what has already happened to Christians throughout the world. Many Christians throughout the world in other nations are persecuted with threats of death, but in this nation, the enemy will try to silence us by the laws that are passed. Mark my words, this nation is unique, and God will divide the sheep from the goat nations. (Matthew 25:32) We must be a nation that supports Israel, as we were the first to recognize Israel’s independence and sovereignty. Start reading your Bibles more and more and you’ll see the pieces of the puzzle being put together and you’ll be able to get the revelation of the times and seasons we are living in. We know our place in church history. Study the 7 churches of Asia in the book of Revelation. The 7 churches also represent the 7 periods of church history since Christ, and Laodicea is the final period, which we are no living in… Read what Christ says about that church:
Revelation 3:14-22 says:
“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:
These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
The period of Church history we are in is the Laodicean one, and notice how there are no more periods of church history mentioned after that, meaning, Christ will come back soon! This is why we really are in the last days! If we fail to believe in the Second Coming of Christ, we become scoffers and mockers of His coming. (See 2 Peter 3:1-13)
God is not done with this nation, we have a country to pray for, Church, and it starts with you! We are living in the days of the Church being lukewarm, we are neither hot nor cold, we are just trying to get by in life by not being on either side, but we cannot be lukewarm, Church, we need to be the Church of Jesus Christ, because the Church is the “Ekklesia,” in Koine Greek this means, “called out ones.” So, Church, let’s be the called out ones, being called out from the world to be different, to follow the Word of God and be an influence to the world around us. Remember, fellow believers, it starts with you, and be encouraged with this message, for it is not a message of fear, but of exhortation and encouragement; in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
