Judgement Is Coming to America

So then, does it surprise you that corruption is entrenched not only in political establishments, but social as well. The United States I believe is corrupted beyond repair. I really do not foresee any revival coming. In-fact, I believe the near future will unleash further rounds of abominations that are normalized. What is next? Pedophilia? Bestiality? Of course, the masses will applaud and approve undoubtedly… who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” (Romans 1:32)

There are a lot of fellow believers insisting God will spark a revival. Of course, that would be preferable. No doubt, all things are possible with God. Did He not send Jonah to Nineveh?  But even the long-suffering of God has its limit and conclusion. We only need to look at the Great Flood to see just that. When the door of the ark was closed, that was it. All caught outside the ark were destroyed and damned to everlasting contempt.  Let us consult our Bibles, shall we? Speaking of Noah, Jesus told us:

But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” (Matthew 24:37–39)

Just like the days of Noah… What were those days like exactly? Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:5) Evil Continually upon man’s heart. Ouch.  Are we there in this present day? No, not quite. However, we are RAPIDLY progressing towards that day. Until then God will send us warnings and raise up voices to call to repentance. He always has. This is a universal truth concerning all nations. As nations are concerned God will judge them accordingly.  Also take note… If God did not spare His people (ancient Israel and Judea) national Judgment, He most assuredly will not spare us.

Let’s compare the laundry list of charges:

You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way; for every abomination to the Lord which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.” (Deuteronomy 12:31)

And they built the high places of Baal which are in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.’” (Jeremiah 32:35) Right, we see that sacrificing children is an “Abomination” to the LORD. We are guilty as charged to the tune of 60 million unborn babies sacrificed upon the altar of feminism. Considering we are a Nation of around 330 million, 60 million is a serious chunk. That’s 10 times more than the number of Jewish people murdered in the holocaust. I also would bet WAY more than ancient Israel and Judea sacrificed.

For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.” (Romans 1:26–27)

as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” (Jude 7)

Sexual Immorality - Family Radio 316

Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.” (1 Corinthians 6:18)

How often did we see the celebratory approval of homosexuality or transgenderism? So much so, that one can NOT turn on a TV (Idiot Tube) without having this thrown in your face. It’s all the time and everywhere in the mainstream. Worse, it’s celebrated. I refer you back to Romans 1:32. Thus as a nation, we have embraced this as normal.

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:” (2 Timothy 3:1) Without a doubt I believe us to be in the last of the last days. If not quite there, then remarkably close.

For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,” (2 Timothy 3:2) Check all those boxes. Of course, these are not new and unique to our present day. However, these are mainstream norms of the present day.

unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,” (2 Timothy 3:3) The last year had this on full display. The amount of hatred out there is seething with venom. From rioters burning, pillaging, beating elderly with baseball bats, and despising law and authority. Not to mention slander becoming a norm. Fake news, anyone?

traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,” (2 Timothy 3:4)  Just look at the junk fed to our teens and young adults. The pleasures of life outweigh all. Our youth have become the “It’s all about me” generation, totally rejecting any form of guidance from their parents (or any authority), even to the point of betrayal

having a form of godliness but denying its power. (2 Timothy 3:5a) Just look how apostate the church has become. They much rather conform to the world than to God. Notice how they have a form of godliness but in all actuality, they have no power. They are dead in their sins and don’t even know it. Sadly, this is most of mainstream Christianity.  Nelson’s Study notes word this well: A form of godliness is an outward appearance of reverence for God. Denying its power describes religious activity that is not connected to a living relationship with Jesus Christ. As time progresses, people would begin to participate in religious activities that are empty. Their activities have nothing to do with a true relationship with God or with individual faith in Jesus Christ. {Radmacher, E. D., Allen, R. B., & House, H. W. (1997). The Nelson Study Bible: New King James Version (2 Ti 3:5). Nashville: T. Nelson Publishers}.

It is this failing that is MOST disturbing. You may not know this, but we are amid a full-blown apostasy. There were some internal polls conducted by Lifeway on behalf of Ligonier ministries (State of Theology) last September where it cited: 22% of US Evangelicals believe in “gender fluidity” rather than that people have a God-given gender that is either male or female. Really now? That is Evangelicals who obviously have not opened their bibles in years. Not to mention when you filter the poll to all professed” Christians” those percentages skyrocket.  Here is a link to the [State of Theology poll] Go to the Data Explorer part and play around with the filters to look at the internals. I would say nearly 75% (Just a guess on practical experience) of professed “Christians” are apostates. It is getting worse as the years go by. To be sure, always there has only ever been a true remnant. Just as the Lord said: “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” (Matthew 7:13–14)

Trans Sanity: Perversion, Confusion and a Depraved Mind | VirtueOnline –  The Voice for Global Orthodox Anglicanism

Brethren, I believe God is giving our nation over to depravity. He removes His restraint and lets people have/do whatever they want. With a church that is compromised and lawlessness going out of control. It will not be long until we totally collapse as a nation. Just look at the next generation. I do not think any free society would last under the indoctrinated social policies they hold as values. (Read Socialism) Freedom comes with one requirement. It is to do the right thing when nobody’s watching. Since we overall as a nation fail at that, we are not going to maintain freedom.

God is Love to be sure. However, God is Holy and lawful. His Wrath is like a huge rubber band pulled back so far and ready to snap. I urge you all to be prepared and make sure you have oil in your lamps.

Make sure you are not a “Nominal Christian” Test yourself to see if you are in the faith.  Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.” (2 Corinthians 13:5)  If you fail this test, turn to Jesus Now! You are not dead yet!

There can be nothing more horrific than to hear this: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (Matthew 7:21–23)

If you are Saved and struggling. Repent and recommit to the Lord. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)

 If you are not saved and managed to endure my writing to this point {CLICK HERE} For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” (2 Corinthians 6:2)

Shalom,

Reality Check… “US is ‘crumbling,’ God is only hope” (Franklin Graham)

“Thus the Lord was moved by prayer for the land.” 2 Samuel 24:25

With the coming election and now mass hysteria over the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, there is a sense that sanity is spiraling out and the US is foundering about to be swallowed unto the depths of the dark sea.  Some good decent folks think that all our hope rest upon the re-election of Donald Trump, filling the vacant Supreme Court seat, and destroying the left in an electoral bloodbath. While I may share concerns and agree with the urgency of keeping the Marxist from dismantling liberty and freedom, I can not disagree more with the sentiment of “OUR HOPE” affixed to a mortal man or a political institution. If my Hope rest in Donald Trump, then Huston I got a problem! Brethren let’s keep us focused upon the Lord God Almighty and only Him. I CAN NOT state this enough, all this political and social upheaval is a distraction of the enemy (Satan) to steal your peace not just tranquility of peace but total peace (Shalom) only God can provide us.

 Do not trust in princes, In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation. Psalm 146:3

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Trump supporter based on his stances within the issues that my faith and conscious dictate to me. I’m not advocating putting our heads in the sand and sitting idly by as our very liberties are stripped away. I’m advocating to place the Lord first in all your matters and disconnect from the background noise of daily political punditry. For example, I like Mark Levine a lot, but I just can’t listen to him very much. He (as mostly all pundits do) starts off calm and cool and by the end of the segment he is shouting all fired up (not unlike I do).  Ok, I get it. I’m not happy either but, will shaking my fist in passionate anger solve anything? Well, yes, it does. It pries me from worshipping God and placing my trust in Him and His plans and His will for us. Afterall it is Him that truly places our leadership over us.  “It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men And knowledge to men of understanding. Daniel 2:21

This coming Saturday Franklin Graham will be hosting  Prayer March 2020  He knows our nation is facing a perilous time. He correctly advocates that prayer and supplication to the Lord is the recipe for success concerning the current issue. That the only hope for the human race is found in only one name. The Name of Jesus, which in Hebrew is Yeshua which means Salvation. In a Christian Post interview Franklin Graham nails it on every point asked. He stresses that ONLY GOD is where our hope rest.

Excerpts from christianpost.com interview with Franklin Graham

“I think there’s kind of a boiling point here with many people. We have seen injustice on our streets and some of our communities. The frustration that people aren’t heard, that people are marginalized. It seems that all of this is boiling at the same time,” he said, noting that these tensions are accentuated in an election year where politics often exploit the issues.

Yet no one can solve the spiritual darkness besetting America, he emphasized.

“Republicans cannot fix it; Democrats cannot fix it. Only God can,” Graham asserted.

God and His ways have been removed from government, schools, and in society more broadly when the country needs more, not less of Him, he said, adding that the United States is “crumbling.”

“I don’t see our nation able to go much further unless we repent and call upon the name of Almighty God,” he said.

Asked if he believes that a remnant of praying people exists in the nation and if he has hope for a Great Awakening, the evangelist replied that it’s hard to say.

“For many in the church today, they’re comfortable and a lot of our pastors don’t want to rock the boat,” Graham said. Many will not speak out on hot-button social issues, insisting such topics are “political” when they are moral matters where churches must be bold.

Yet because they have ignored such great sin and the responsibility to speak against it, he doesn’t know if there will be revival.

“I don’t have entertainment; I don’t have music. We are coming to pray, to pray for our country, our leaders. And by starting at one end of the Mall and going to the other it’s an opportunity for us to walk together and to show unity,” he said.

The evangelist went on to explain that though he does not have any hard proof of this, he believes that many Americans are quietly reevaluating what they believe and prioritize, spiritually speaking, in light of the chaotic events of 2020.

“I just sense there is something moving in our country. I don’t believe that our country is going to be spared from God’s judgment. We are not a Christian nation. We are a secular nation and the secularists are wanting to strip God out of everything,” he said.

“Maybe this election could possibly slow that down,” he added, “but we know there’s going to be a one-world system one day. We know that people aren’t going to be able to buy, sell, or trade unless they have the mark of the Antichrist. We know that there will be a great war.”

“We see God’s judgment coming against this earth for the rejection of His Son and we see the Lord Jesus Christ coming back triumphant to establish a new Heaven and a new Earth. We know how the last chapters of history are written.”

“I think we’re kind of in that period of time on God’s clock where some of these things might just be beginning to unfold. To say that we’re not going to be able to reset God’s clock, in the sense where He’s going to change His mind, no it’s written. But He might delay just a little bit.” [source]

Brethren, we must keep our eyes on Jesus and not look at the storm raging all around us. And He said, “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus.  But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Matthew 14:29-30 

While we don’t totally understand why God allows the storm to engulf us, we must trust that He knows what is best for us.  Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.  “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9

Let us all keep our eyes upon Him and place all our trust in the Lord He will not forget a single one of you that truly seek Him.  And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You. Psalm 9:10

Regardless of how this coming election pans out, know that it is in the Will and plan of God. That He is your only hope for true peace, and the kingdom of heaven of where our true treasures lie. Even if the worst possible people come into power. Let it not be a source of worry or contention. “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Matthew 6:25

Lastly, please accept this benediction:

The LORD bless you, and keep you;  The LORD make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you;  The LORD lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace. (His Shalom) As my good friend Pastor Jeff Kipp always adds. “The world didn’t give it to you, and the world can’t take it away.”

Shalom,

Brian

A house divided. Could this be the death rattle of the Republic?

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!
