But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. Matthew 12:25
Pick your straw man; Marxism, socialism, Illuminati, George Soros, or whoever you may think of. Those are distractions. It is after all, satan and his demons that are the enemies and perpetrators of our present situation. Why have we as a church in this nation failed so dismally? Or is it we didn’t fail, but God’s word is being fulfilled before our eyes? I suspect it is a case of both.
We know from God’s word that there will be a falling away in the latter days:
Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 2 Thessalonians 2:3
Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 1 Timothy 4:1
Could it be we are in that day? Not only in the United States, buy even globally. The next generation is most assuredly worse off spiritually than at any other time in modernity. The generation after them are totally being indoctrinated into the normalcy of Transgenderism, homosexuality, selfishness, rebellion, and open hostility towards fellow man and even God Himself.
WHAT’S UP WITH OUR CHILDREN? Over the last decade I have noticed a disturbing pattern arising among children that are falling away from the faith. All my adult children were raised within the church. Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
But despite that they are not walking with the Lord. Do not get me wrong, my kids are not bad kids at all, and I consider myself fortunate that they are not as bad off as many of their generation are. It seems to me that the more a family is closer to the Lord, even more the devil sifts them like sand. I have many friends that have been attacked by their own children. From homosexuality, to drug issues, to outright cruelty towards their parents. In the old days, parents would disown a wayward child. Nowadays it is wayward children disowning their parents. Can you say upside-down?
I just spent a better part of the last few hours scrutinizing the Kyle Rittenhouse videos. Now, I was not there, nor have I all the facts so I cannot presume guilt or innocence. Stating that it sure looked like self defense to me from all the videos I seen. One of the mob came at him with a gun after he was bashed in the head with a skateboard. My point however, this is our YOUTH. We now have armed rabbles bent on tearing our nation asunder, bent upon destruction and looting. We have lawmakers siding with lawbreakers and promoting these mostly violent anarchists as some kinds of a protest. Then to add further insult we have Marxist activist disguised as journalist promoting this all. Then by some strange twist of fate, we act all surprised that a VAST amount of the country has been arming itself because they have no faith in the government protecting their lives and property.
How’s that de-fund the police working out for you? Now that we have armed citizens in proximity with violent mobs it is a recipe for disaster or even a potential for civil war, not unlike 1948 Columbia. Is this the path we are on? Is this the path we will take?
Let’s check off some boxes, shall we?
“Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. Matthew 24:9
Ok, not so much tribulation in this country (YET but, it is coming). But globally this is not the case. More Christians in the recent years have been persecuted more often and more violently than at any time in history.
“At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. Matthew 24:10
This appears to be shaping up to this end, yes? Just turn on your TV and see it on display.
“Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. Matthew 24:11
Well then. Just simply tune into your local “Christian TV channel” and you’ll see NO SHORTAGE of false prophets misleading the sheep.
“Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. Matthew 24:12
Kenosha last week anyone? Not a lot of love there. I’d say ice cold love…
As a nation we kicked God out of school totally. So now that the ultimate Lawgiver has been booted, moral relativism gets to take over. We have nearly and completely banned the paddle from our schools and now the inmates are running the asylum. So then, what do you think the result is? A generation that has no fear of God and no fear of consequences. These kids are truly the coddled and pampered generation. Indeed so, pampered and coddled by the devil. Are we to go down without a fight? Certainly not. Our weapon is a sword the Living Word of God. It’s time we put it to use. We no longer need to fly off to the remotest parts of the globe to find a mission field. It is outside your very front door. Open it. Go through it. Bring the Gospel to those of lawlessness.
Granted I do not believe we are completely there to the point Jesus referred to (Matt 24), yet I believe we are experiencing the birth pangs. So, do we take responsibility over this situation? To be sure, yes. Collectively as a nation we are guilty. Individually as believers we could be doing more to oppose this fait accompli. Even if we know how things will end, we nevertheless need to bring God’s Word to the masses. Antifa radicals need saved as much as I once did.
I spent the better part of last week roaming the battlefields of Gettysburg. It was the bloodiest battle in the western hemisphere. It was a result of the last time this country was divided like it is now. As Abraham Lincoln quoted his bible in his 1858 “House Divided Speech” the statement of fact remains so. Indeed a house divided cannot stand. If God stated it, then it will be so. It doesn’t take an Einstein to figure that out Not even half an Einstein. Maybe an Ein or maybe a Stein, but certainly not an Einstein.
The question remains. Could this be the end of the Republic?
Let our prayer for our children be one that they are shattered by this world and return to the Father and post-haste as time is short. They are the future of this nation whatever it will be…
Do not capitulate! Get in the fight!
