In one of my past articles, I wrote that I believe America is in a spiritual war because we have thrown God:
- Out of many of our schools.
- Out of many of our courts.
- Out of most of our government.
- Out of most of our homes.
- Out of most of our churches.
- We have soaked our land in the blood of aborted babies.
- Our government has been buying and selling the body parts of aborted babies.
- We have elected people to lead us that say they are Christians, but they vote for abortion, promote the gay agenda, appoint godless judges, refuse to punish criminals, sell their vote to large campaign contributors, and they ignore what is best for ordinary citizens.
- We have openly blasphemed God in books, movies, TV, and the media (and we have come to regard this blasphemy as ‘normal’).
I decided to repeat this on Sept. 30, 2022, when an evil and immoral world leader, Russian Pres. Putin announced that Russia was annexing four areas of Ukraine.
Putin called the West a fallen civilization because the West has:
- Embraced Satanism (we support the coming godless world government).
- Forced drug addiction (we have opened our border to drug traffickers).
- Gender ambiguity (we don’t know how many genders there are, and some don’t know what a woman is).
- Organized hunts of people as if they’re animals (very little is done to combat shootings in cities, schools, etc.).
Sadly, Putin is right.
Here are some recent events that appear to indicate that the Rapture is close.
One, concerning the rise of godlessness and the decline of America: on Sept. 15, 2022, Cal. Gov. Newsome launched a billboard campaign in several states that misused Scriptures to support abortion.
On Sept. 29, 2022, a famous Cal. pastor, John MacArthur, responded to Newsome in an open letter saying:
- “You revealed to the entire nation how thoroughly rebellious against God you are when you sponsored billboards across America promoting the slaughter of children, whom He creates in the womb (Psalm 139:13-16; Isaiah 45:9-12).”
- “You further compounded the wickedness of that murderous campaign with a reprehensible act of gross blasphemy, quoting the very words of Jesus from Mark 12:31 as if you could somehow twist His meaning and arrogate His name in favor of butchering unborn infants.”
- The “diabolical effect” of your worldview can be seen in “California’s epidemics of crime, homelessness, sexual perversions (like homosexuality and transgenderism), and other malignant expressions of human misery that stem directly from corrupt public policy.”
- “You will stand in the presence of the Holy God who created you, who is your Judge, and He will demand that you give an account for how you have flouted His authority in your governing, and how you have twisted His own Holy Word to rationalize it. As you look over the precipice of eternity, what will your answer be?”
MacArthur ended his open letter to Newsome by saying MacArthur’s church and many Christians are praying for him and urging him to fully repent.
Two, concerning the impact of godlessness on America: on Sept. 30, 2022, it was reported that America’s weapons stockpiles are “dangerously low” because our government has used a “presidential drawdown” 20 times since Aug. 2021 to send military equipment to Ukraine.
According to the report, Dept. of Defense officials have indicated that our low inventory “would be considered problematic during wartime.”
Many citizens have family in the military, and all of us are counting on our military to defend our nation, but they can’t do it without weapons.
We need to understand that our strategic oil reserve and our weapons inventory are very low at a time when wars and rumors of war are common.
Three, on Sept. 26-29, at least 4 very large underwater leaks (perhaps caused by explosions) were detected on the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 Pipelines.
Several world leaders said the leaks appear to be sabotage, but no one offered proof.
One prophecy teacher said only 2 nations (Russia and the U.S.) have the ability to blow up a pipeline in water as deep as the Baltic Sea, where the presumed explosions occurred.
If the pipelines were sabotaged, it is unclear who did it, but many officials believe the U.S. is the most likely suspect (and Tucker Carlson believes U.S. Sec. of State Tony Blinken has admitted that the U.S. did it).
Some refer to these statements by U.S. officials:
- S. Sen. Ron Johnson (Dec. 2021), “I certainly hope the Senate Foreign Relations Committee would take up legislation to go beyond suspending it (the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline), but to ending it permanently.”
- S. Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs, Victoria Nuland (Jan. 2022), “If Russia invades Ukraine, one way or another, Nord Stream 2 will not move forward.”
- S. Pres. Joe Biden (Feb. 2022), “If Russia invades (Ukraine), that means tanks or troops crossing the border of Ukraine again, then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring it to an end.”
It will take many months, if ever, to repair the pipelines, and their being out of service is costing Russia a fortune.
Four, concerning the return of Jews to the Promised Land: on Sept. 23, 2022, it was reported that Russia’s calling up 300,000 reserve troops to fight the war in Ukraine has caused a surge in requests by Jews wanting to immigrate to Israel.
Because of the war, the EU has placed sanctions on Russia, and only 2 airlines are still flying out of Russia.
It is unclear how the Jews will get out, but Israel is preparing for a large wave of immigrants.
Five, concerning the division of Israel: on Sept. 21, 2022, Pres. Biden endorsed the Two-State Solution in a speech at the UN.
On Sept. 22, 2022, Interim Israeli Prime Min. Lapid endorsed it at the UN, and Pres. Biden spoke out in agreement with Lapid’s statement.
On Sept. 28, 2022 (exactly one week later), a very large and powerful hurricane named Ian took the lives of many and heaped great damage on Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and other parts of the U.S.
It seems normal for a natural disaster to strike the U.S. when America’s leaders publicly express support for the division of Israel.
Six, concerning pandemics and food shortages: on Sept. 30, 2022, it was reported that a virus has killed about 100,000 cows and buffaloes in India, and it has sickened more than 2 million more that will die if left untreated.
The disease is contagious, it is spreading to other countries, and it causes sick animals to give less milk.
Seven, concerning an increase in the frequency and intensity of natural disasters: at the time of this writing, the death toll from Hurricane Ian was 105 (101 in Fla.; 4 elsewhere), thousands of people had to be rescued; 2.6 million people were briefly without electricity (down to 440,000 on Oct. 2), some areas got more than 31 inches of rain, only about one-third of the people have flood insurance, and some have lost everything.
Eight, concerning perilous times: Russian Pres. Putin said he will use every weapon (including nuclear weapons) at his disposal to win the war with Ukraine.
On Oct. 4, 2022, it was reported that Ukraine is sending potassium iodine pills to evacuation centers for public distribution in case Russia follows through on the use of nuclear weapons.
Nine, concerning hyperinflation and a global economic collapse: on Oct. 4, 2022, America’s gross national debt topped 31 trillion dollars for the first time in history.
The U.S. Federal Reserve keeps increasing interest rates to try to slow the increase in inflation, but higher interest rates are causing America’s national debt to keep soaring.
Biden could help by slowing his spending, but that is not likely to happen.
(More: On Oct. 4, 2022, OPEC announced plans to cut oil production by two million barrels per day. Biden tried to stop this, but Biden’s effort to give Iran billions (perhaps a trillion dollars) to sign a worthless nuclear weapons agreement has angered the Arabs who want Iran’s nuclear weapons program stopped. Biden is ignoring Arab desires on the Iranian nuclear weapons issue, so they are ignoring him on the oil production issue. Biden has almost emptied America’s strategic oil reserves, so we will likely see the price of gasoline and everything else soaring again. It is sad to contemplate, but Biden may be deliberately trying to collapse the U.S. economy to justify a global currency. He has deliberately destroyed America’s oil independence and refuses to change that policy. Millions of poor and middle-income Americans are struggling to pay their bills, but Biden doesn’t seem to care.)
Finally, are you Rapture Ready?
If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
What concerns me is knowing the number of people Kanye can get to follow him and do as he says – they hang on his every word
Over the weekend, Kanye West went full antisemitic. I was not at all surprised. Kanye’s incoherent attack on Jared Kushner during his interview with Tucker Carlson gave the game away. By the way, what he shared on Instagram and Twitter over the weekend is not open to interpretation, as in “is he or isn’t he antisemitic?”—instead, it’s big, it’s bold, and it’s openly, unabashedly antisemitic.
It began on Friday when Kanye was kicked off Instagram, although it’s unclear whether it was for his antisemitic rantings or for something else. The rantings arose in the context of a private conversation he’d had with Sean “Diddy” Combs, which Kanye then apparently published to Instagram. Here’s the Instagram language:
This ain’t a game
Ima [sic] use you as an example to show the Jewish people that told you to call me that no one can threaten or influence me
I told you this was war
Now gone get you some business [sic]
Clearly offended by whatever Diddy told him, along with the Instagram experience (and Instagram, recall, is owned by Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta), on Saturday, Kanye escalated the antisemitic attacks in a Twitter tweet vowing to go after Jews. Twitter has since deleted the tweet, saying it violates its rules, but it lives on as a screen grab:
I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 [sic] On JEWISH PEOPLE [sic] The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also [sic] You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.
The subsequent tweet he made on the same subject is still there, but I’ve screen-grabbed it just in case:
Who [sic] you think created cancel culture?
As you can see from that screen grab, the tweet already has over 200,000 likes, and that number is going up by the minute.
There are a few strands to unwind here:
First, second only to Muslims, Blacks are the most antisemitic people in America. While the left loves to talk about teeny little pockets of “White Supremacists,” that’s not where American antisemitism is coming from. It’s coming from Blacks. (Interestingly, while the above link comes from a 2016 survey by the Anti-Defamation League, by 2020, the ADL, which has become a hard leftist organization, left out race entirely when studying antisemitism.)
Second, “replacement theology,” to which Kanye alludes, is a real thing when it comes to Jews and some Christians (and Kanye waves his newfound Christianity around like a cheerleader’s pompoms at the big game):
Third, Blacks are especially enchanted by “replacement theology,” as you can see from Kanye’s claim that “I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also.” While I’m sure you remember the way the leftist media defamed Nicholas Sandmann in 2019 for patiently and quietly accepting drum abuse from Nathan Phillips at a Right to Life March in D.C., you may not remember that Black Hebrew Israelites had been hurling racial abuse at the boys before that. That organization is the apex of replacement theology amongst Blacks, and it’s very hostile to Jews.

Fourth, if you were paying attention to Kanye’s interview with Tucker Carlson on Thursday, Kanye’s antisemitic ranting is unsurprising. On my blog, I mentioned it as just one of many reasons that I was unimpressed by Kanye and warned other conservatives to be less impressed as well:
[I]n a perfect, albeit incoherent, antisemitic trope, Kanye said that Jared Kushner’s huge efforts in the Middle East, which led to the Abraham Accords, were all about money. That kind of remark stinks and is as bad as Ilhan Omar saying the only reason Republicans support Israel, the only liberal democracy in the Middle East, is because Jews buy them off.
Kanye has made a lot of money giving the American public bad music and ugly clothes. His talent eludes me, but young people clearly see something in him. That’s too bad because, despite the faint gloss of conservativism he’s adopted (which I suspect is opportunistic or, at least, doesn’t come from a truly moral place), Kanye is a sinkhole of so many bad things that happen when leftism and Blacks come together.

An article I wrote many years ago about Replacement Theology:
EVERYONE should be more than a bit concerned about this!
Indiana Rep. Jim Banks says State Department, DOJ ‘must explain why the Biden administration has allowed CCP police to set up an office on US soil’
FIRST ON FOX: Several Republican House lawmakers sent a letter to Biden Cabinet Secretaries Antony Blinken and Merrick Garland demanding answers on a reported Chinese police presence in New York City.
Republican Study Committee chairman Jim Banks of Indiana alongside Reps. Michael Waltz of Florida and Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin led the letter to Garland and Blinken demanding answers on why China’s Fuzhou police were reportedly able to open a U.S.-based police arm.
“The Department of Justice and State Department must explain why the Biden administration has allowed CCP police to set up an office on U.S. soil,” Banks told Fox News Digital in a statement.
“When Republicans take back the House, we will hold the Biden administration accountable for their continued efforts to aid and abet the Chinese Communist Party,” he added.
Waltz told Fox News Digital it is “mind-boggling that we are allowing China’s Fuzhou police to operate on American soil.”
“The Chinese Communist Party uses these stations to go after political dissidents abroad, while also endangering the national security of the United States,” Waltz said in a statement. “We must protect the American people and Chinese freedom activists from the CCP’s gross abuse of the American justice system,” he added.
Gallagher warned in a statement that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) “has used Fuzhou overseas police service stations to push propaganda and spy on Chinese citizens abroad.”
“The presence of one of these stations in New York City not only raises serious human rights concerns, but also raises concerns about whether the United States is allowing a hostile foreign adversary to conduct its own law enforcement activities within our borders,” the Wisconsin Republican continued.

“The State Department must divulge the extent of their knowledge of this station, it’s actions against American-Chinese citizens and communities, and the threat it may pose to our national security,” he added.
In the letter exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital, the lawmakers wrote of their “grave concern over reports of the law enforcement presence” from China in New York City, noting the “Public Security (Police) Bureau of Fuzhou, China, announced in January 2022 that it has opened the ‘first batch’ of 30 overseas police service stations in 25 cities in 21 countries,” with the U.S. branch hosted at the American ChangLe Association, a Chinese overseas hometown association founded in 1998 that “shoulders the mission of uniting the villagers, fighting for their legitimate rights and interests, promoting the prosperity and stability of the overseas Chinese settlements, and acting as a bridge for the villagers to get rich through hard work,” according to its website.
“According to a recent report by Safeguard Defenders, a human rights NGO based in Spain, overseas Chinese hometown associations have become overwhelmingly co-opted by the Chinese Communist Party’s United Front organizations which seek increasing control over the Chinese diaspora (despite providing some genuine services to local Chinese communities),” the lawmakers wrote.
“The report indicates that at least some of those Chinese hometown associations hosting the overseas police service stations are linked to the CCP’s United Front,” they continued. “It is deeply troubling that the Chinese government could use these service stations as its long arm policing abroad.”
Gallagher warned in a statement that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) “has used Fuzhou overseas police service stations to push propaganda and spy on Chinese citizens abroad.”
The Republicans pointed to the United States-China Economic and Security Review Commission’s 2018 report detailing how the “CCP’s United Front Work Department has worked to suppress the free speech rights of U.S. persons protesting against” them.
They also warned about Beijing’s coercion and bullying activities to push the CCP’s narrative that sometimes verges into illegal actions.
“According to Peter Mattis, a research fellow at Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, CCP intimidation and efforts to promote Beijing’s narrative ‘sometimes crosses the line into criminal actions, such as conspiracy against rights,’” the Republicans wrote.
“The U.S. Department of State has similarly found that the CCP’s United Front Work Department funds and supports overseas organizations to spread propaganda and coerces and bullies those who would oppose Beijing’s policies. In 2018, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo imposed visa restrictions on Chinese officials and individuals active in United Front Work Department’s nefarious activities.”
Banks and his fellow Republicans warned that “Fuzhou overseas police service stations (including their online form) are reportedly involved in fulfilling Chinese law enforcement functions at least in some countries” and “coerce purported Chinese fugitives abroad to return to China to face legal proceedings, which is euphemistically dubbed as ‘persuading to return’ in Chinese parlance.”
“There should be no room for the Chinese government to exercise extraterritorial law enforcement unilaterally on U.S. soil,” the lawmakers wrote. “In 2018 the U.S. government provided the Chinese government with specific requirements for contacting state and local law enforcement in the United States.”
“In 2020 the Chinese government’s campaign illegally targeting U.S. residents to force their return to China had become so severe that the FBI issued an internal memorandum on this issue. The Chinese overseas police service station established in New York City earlier this year appears to be a further step of China’s illicit long arm policing on U.S. soil that violates our sovereignty.”
The Republicans concluded their letter with several questions to Austin and Blinken, including whether “the Department of State, Department of Justice, or any other agency of the federal government invite or approve China’s Fuzhou police to establish a presence in New York City.”
Joining Banks, Waltz and Gallagher on the letter are 18 of their fellow House Republicans, including Reps. Elise Stefanik of New York, Greg Murphy of North Carolina, and Clay Higgins of Louisiana.
China’s police presence in New York City is a symptom of the overall larger issue of the CCP’s growing influence abroad.
Fifty-one Republican lawmakers sent a letter to three of President Biden’s Cabinet secretaries warning that national security is threatened by a CCP-linked company’s efforts to buy farmland near an Air Force base in North Dakota.
The CCP-linked farmland acquisition is far from the first land buy by the Chinese government, and the purchases have been heavily scrutinized for national security risks presented, as they have been approved under both the Biden and Trump administrations. Source
