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!

LEAVING CHRISTIANITY: The Unthinkable is Happening

I’m sure that many of you know about Joshua Harris, the former pastor  of Covenant Life Church in Maryland, has not only walked away from his ministry – but he has LEFT Christianity AND his wife of 21 years.

Joshua is now marching with LGBTQ parades.  This is shocking, brethren.  But this is a Sign of the End Times.

From Christianpost.com

The Maryland-based megachurch that I Kissed Dating Goodbye author Joshua Harris once led responded to the news of him leaving his faith and his wife, stating that it “hits home personally.”

“These updates are hard to hear. We love Josh and Shannon. For most of us, Josh isn’t just some distant public figure,” wrote Covenant Life Interim Senior Pastor Kevin Rogers in a letter to his congregation, which was posted online on Saturday by author and investigative journalist Julie Roys.

“He’s a beloved former pastor and friend. So this news isn’t just a lot to process theoretically. It hits home personally.”

Harris served as senior pastor at Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg from 2004 until his resignation in 2015 in order to pursue graduate studies at Regent College in British Columbia.

Rogers explained that after learning about Harris’ separation from his wife and decision to leave Christianity, he read through the New Testament book 1 Timothy.

“Several times Paul mentions former Christian leaders ‘swerving from,’ ‘wandering from,’ or ‘making shipwreck’ of their faith. So while this is sad and confusing, it isn’t new,” sai Rogers.

“Paul says some had gone off course theologically. Others behaved in ways that violated Christian conscience. For others, it was greed. In every case, Paul’s hope was for redemption and restoration. That these leaders would develop ‘love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.’ (1 Tim 1:5) That should be our hope and prayer for Josh as well.”

Rogers called for the congregation to pray for Harris and also to ask “the God of all grace and power for fresh resolve in your own fight of faith.”

Harris wrote the best-selling 1997 book I Kissed Dating Goodbye, which rejected traditional dating and courtship, and also argued that any physical intimacy before marriage was sinful. source

The very first church I attended was Covenant Life in 1983, so this really hit me hard as well.  I never knew Joshua; back then the pastors were C.J. Mahaney and Larry Tomczak.  Through the years, Covenant Life has experienced many rough waters – even law suits concerning pedophilia.
As sad and shocking as this is, it is part of the signs of the end of times from Scripture:

“This know, that in the last days perilous times will come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” (2 Timothy 3:1-5).  (emphasis mine)

Did you see the Scripture “Without Natural Affection?” This has to do with the sin of homosexuality. The true church – the Remnant is being poisoned by the Social Justice False gospel. How does this happen? It is not as complex as one may imagine.

When a child of God, be it a pastor or a church member, begins to believe the doctrines of men (or better said “The doctrines of demons”) and does not compare these false doctrines with the Word of God; they no longer are standing on the solid rock of Jesus Christ and His Gospel.

They find themselves on shifting sand.  Not much of a foundation, is it?  And before long, the child of God is either deep into apostasy or walks away from the faith, as Joshua Harris has done. And in the case of Joshua Harris, he has been so deceived by the Social Justice false gospel, he even left his wife who he had been married to for 21 years.

“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21: 36).

“Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after STRANGE FLESH, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire”  (Jude 1:7).  (emphasis mine)

Brethren, when people say to you that homosexuality is not spoken of in the New Testament, point them to Scriptures as the ones above. “Strange Flesh” speaks of the unnatural relationship between men and men – also between women and women.  It also speaks of any sexual relationships outside the union of Biblical marriage.

A Borderless World 

The same people who are part of the Social Justice false gospel are also working furiously in helping the Globalists/Marxists to attain their dream of “No Borders.”  This is the  prerequisite of the One World Government.

Those who are “returning to Rome” from Evangelical circles are helping to usher in the inevitable One World Religion.”

Christians do not want to hear about Bible Prophecy

There are many Christians who just do not want to hear about the End Times and the Scriptures which speak of this time.  They would rather keep their heads in the sand and what comes – comes.

If the reader is in a church where the pastor does not speak of Bible Prophecy and you wish to stay at that church; you do have options.  You can study these end times Scriptures for yourself (an in depth study) and there are also wonderful Bible Prophecy teachers online. Of course, you can search for a church in which the whole Word of God is preached.

I have chosen one of those teachers (Pastor Brandon Holthaus) and will embed his last prophecy update here:

I pray that this article has served to wake up many Christians. We are in the end of the end times.

You MUST get your heads out of the sand and into the Word of God!

How Can I Be Saved?

Shalom b’Yeshua

MARANATHA!!
