What Lens Are You Looking Through?
How do you see what’s happening in the U.S. and in the world today?
While most are looking to political solutions, the church should focus through the lens of God’s providential dealings with America in the Last-Days.
To reinforce that focus, this article addresses America’s current state of decline.
The Decline of America Happening Fast
God rules over all. He therefore sovereignly controls the birth, lifespan, and demise of every earthly nation including America.
From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.
While it would be nice if the Bible clearly laid out the role of the United States in the last days, the silence of scripture on this subject may tell us more than we realize. America will no longer be a leader of nations, but a follower. End-time events do not include America as the great international heavyweight it was at the beginning of the twenty first century.
We are already starting to get a better sense of how rapidly the Biden administration is accelerating the decline of America in accordance with Bible prophecy!
I do not believe the U.S. will be a superpower any longer when the 7-year Tribulation begins. As a result, I am expecting the U.S.’s global power and influence to decline between now and the start of the Tribulation.
Although we are still early in how this administration will play out, it should be noted that the unprecedented upheaval during the chaotic demonstrations of 2020 have greatly affected the world’s view toward America. Additionally, the division and turmoil that erupted from the 2020 election fiasco increased the world’s concerns about America to the point where many have already begun to reevaluate the strength of America’s role going forward.
Biden’s order to hang the LGBTQI pride flag next to old glory at every US Embassy around the world has downgraded America’s testimony to a new low. Imagine all the diplomats that are daily visiting or passing by our embassy and staring at the pride flag next to the red, white, and blue. Incredibly sad!
America’s diplomats are being forced to oversee the spread of the LGBTQI agenda as a pillar of American foreign policy. Perception is everything and the perception of a weakened America plays into the hands of the enemy. While America was once known for her passion for souls and spreading the Gospel around the world, she’s now becoming recognized for spreading sin.
In Proverbs 14:34, we read,
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”
The verse does not say that America’s past righteousness will exalt us today or tomorrow, nor does it say that our current sin will one day be a reproach in the distant future. It warns us that the sin of America is a reproach today!
The question on my mind for the past several years has been: “In the last days, will America face a gradual decline or a rapid decline?” We will see as time goes on but observing the unprecedented dispatch of Biden’s un-American and ungodly orders has caused me to think more about a rapid decline scenario.
A rapid decline in the U.S.’s power could cause global chaos, especially in the Middle East. A power vacuum in the Mideast created by a weakened U.S. would embolden the key anti-Israel forces of Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Hamas, Hezbollah and other countries in a bid for regional supremacy. Israel could begin to face more testing and conflicts with its neighbors, as the U.S. may not be able to help (or willing to help) if Israel is under attack.
To prevent Iranian aggression against the Jewish State under Biden, and to thwart Iran’s capacity to achieve nuclear weapons we could see Israel make a surprise preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. This could occur at any time just as they took out the secret nuclear facilities of Iraq (Operation Babylon 1981) and Syria (Operation Outside the Box – 2007). Since Biden has come into office, Prime Minister Netanyahu has been upping the rhetoric about Israel’s willingness to go it alone and take-out Iran’s nuclear capabilities.
Israel’s decision for such a risky move may be determined by their national elections in a few weeks on March 23, 2021. If Benjamin Netanyahu remains in power, Iran will remain cautious. However, if Israel chooses a more liberal Prime Minister, along the lines of Biden, their window to hit Iran will likely close.
If a more liberal ruler comes into power in Israel simultaneously with a liberal U.S. president, the pace of events toward the start of the Tribulation period could dramatically increase. It’s not difficult to imagine a scenario where a liberal U.S. President together with a liberal Prime Minister of Israel would make it their priority to divide the Promised Land and require Israel to vacate the so-called West Bank (Judea and Samaria) for the State of Palestine.
With trillions of dollars wasted over COVID “relief packages” packed with pork, the U.S. national debt will swell this year to nearly $30 trillion. This year alone, the democrats will grow the U.S. budget deficit $3.8 trillion and put the government on a path to spend more money in one year than the previous 200+ years.
Biden and company are set to borrow more money over the next 12 months than the U.S. government borrowed to finance the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and the Cold War together.
As the debt balloons to eye-popping amounts, it’s becoming easier to see how America could implode under the weight of its unsustainable national debt. A debt-crises scenario would also cripple America’s military capability causing America to passively resign its role as world policeman and signal the end of America as the world’s greatest superpower.
The United States would be forced to adopt a more likely posture of “falling in line” with other nations, not leading. With America sidelined, it leaves the door wide open for the coming beast empire and the rise of Antichrist.
If America continues to decline at its current pace, we could see other countries jump at the opportunity to become regional or global players. For instance, we could see conflict arising from Iran’s friends in North Korea and China with the power vacuum created by a weakened U.S.
Ultimately, I envision America in bad shape by the time of the start of the Tribulation and the rise of Antichrist. The sudden and mysterious removal of millions of Americans in the Rapture could certainly play a big role in contributing to America’s decline overnight just before the start of the Tribulation. With the restrainer removed (2 Thess. 2:7-8) and America removed, the pathway for the rise of the “man of sin” will be cleared (2 Thess. 3:3).
Keep in mind that I’m not a prophet so I don’t know what the exact timeline is as we approach the Tribulation. I believe a rapid decline in the U.S. gets us to the outcome of a weakened America far quicker than a gradual decline. We’ll see what happens, but I am becoming more confident that we have already entered the period of the rapid decline of our nation.
The church needs to discern that, in the sovereignty of God, the next four years could bring us right up to the door of the final 7 years! I’m not saying it will but I believe it is wise to anticipate it might!
For the most part, the church is asleep concerning the serious time of the hour. We need to be praying for the Body of Christ at large and for our local churches to wake-up and not be caught sleeping when the Lord returns.
Where are the preachers today who should be sounding the trumpet we have entered the danger zone? Remember, Jesus warned us this would happen! He said He will come in a time when the world will not anticipate His arrival or be ready!
It is the personal responsibility of every believer to not let that happen to yourself, your family, or your church and to remain on duty as a faithful watchman!
Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
The level of injustice, hatred and corruption among the leadership that has risen up in America is a stench in the nostrils of God Almighty.
However the leaders didn’t get this way out of nowhere; they are merely a reflection of the level of injustice, hatred, and corruption among the people of this nation.
Telling honest, Christ-loving citizens, that being white and aligned with the former President makes you a terrorist and a threat to the nation is not the best approach to healing our country. Instead, it’s in line with the enemy’s path for widening our divide and it surely will not end well! But it might mean the Lord is coming soon!
So keep looking up because He is coming down and our best days are still ahead in the Father’s House with Jesus our Lord!
Movement of Hate Nominated For What?
BLM activists harassed diners seated on the patio of a Mexican restaurant and allegedly demanded they raise their fists. Other activists from the movement also surrounded Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and several women for several minutes on the streets of Washington, DC, as they attempted to leave a Republican National Convention event at the White House.
Last September, released data from Princeton University showed that riots associated with the Black Lives Matter movement took place in 48 out of the 50 largest cities in the United States.
The very idea of a group like Black Lives Matter whose methods are so violent and anarchist being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize should be a wake up call to every believer as to where we are today at the end of the church-age. And it should be repugnant to every human with a brain or a conscience.
The riots BLM caused for 6 months last year resulted in a dozen dead and over $2 billion in arson and damages, making it the most costly riots in the history of America. Now someone wants to give these domestic terrorists a peace prize??
“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that Antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” 1 John 2:18
I have always stood with the plight of black people here in America, and have done my best my entire life to stand against racism in all its many forms. I find the idea of ‘white supremacy’ to be abhorrent, just as I find the idea of black supremacy to be equally disgusting. Mob rule, for whatever the reason, is always an ugly thing and it always begets violence. Once you sanction violence as a means to an end, you have lost the battle.
The Black Lives Matter Movement, a Communist organization founded on Marxism, is a disgusting proposition, and is antithetical to freedom and to a free people. I stand against racism and always will, and I’ve stood against the deception and gestapo tactics of Black Lives Matter from the first day they showed up.
Black Lives Matter Nobel Peace Prize??
FROM BREITBART NEWS: The nomination was made by Petter Eide, a member of Norway’s parliament who considered the effort to be “a very important worldwide movement to fight racial injustice,” and brushed off questions regarding violent protests in the movement’s name. “Studies have shown that most of the demonstrations organized by Black Lives Matter have been peaceful,” Eide said. “Of course there have been incidents, but most of them have been caused by the activities of either the police or counter-protestors.”
Yikes, this guy Eide has surely drunk the Kool-aid and is repeating the lie and narrative that evil is good and good is evil. Welcome to the end times!
Last September, demonic BLM rioters accosted and threatened a woman screaming, “Are You A Christian.” And in Charlotte, NC you may remember I reported the disturbing story of BLM chanting in the streets “F… Your Jesus!”
We should not forget the bigger picture here that Satan is using BLM as a tool to widen the division in America and that, in the providence of God, our unhinged disunity is another plank in the weakening of America toward its ultimate downfall in the last days.
Since this dangerous movement, backed by Satan, held destructive riots in 48 out of the 50 largest cities in the United States, let’s not forget the real facts when some liberal kook from Norway makes such a bazaar nomination.
The Norway-based Nobel Committee is expected to choose the winners of the award in November. READ MORE
Everywhere he went while campaigning last year we found Joe Biden bowing down in the streets in a disgusting show of favor and acceptance of the lawlessness and extremism of BLM. We have a president in the Whitehouse who favors anarchism!
THE DAYS OF LOT: JOE BIDEN’S SECRETARY OF STATE ANTONY BLINKEN ORDERS LGBTQ+ PRIDE FLAGS TO BE FLOWN NEXT TO THE U.S. FLAG AT ALL US EMBASSIES WORLDWIDE! THE ADMINISTRATION IS RACING TO REMOVE GOD BY ELEVATING EVIL AND CALLING IT GOOD! (Isa. 5:20)
Aligning With Evil
In the Bible, God destroyed both Sodom and Gomorrah for the wickedness and the LGBTQ+ lifestyle is spoken against in both the Old and New Testaments including in the writings of the Apostle Paul for the Church Age.
Yet ironically, just two weeks into the new administration, America has decided to issue an ordinance proclaiming solidarity with the very practice God hates.
Of all the things we should be focusing on, it seems the most important issue to the reprobate minds in this administration is calling evil good and facilitating the demise of America.
As the world races toward the 7-year Tribulation, what happens to America? Bible prophecy indicates America is no where to be found by the time of the Tribulation. It’s not good for the future of the red, white and blue!
“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, and built; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:28,29
It’s becoming more obvious that God’s protective hand is moving off America and His abandonment wrath is falling on our nation as outlined by the Apostle Paul in Romans One. What you will see take place over the next few years will astonish many Bible believing Christians.
Most people on Earth right now are already amazed at the rapid change of events in our country. America is sitting in the most vulnerable position we’ve ever been in with the blind leading the blind and trying to impeach an ex-president. Our enemies are laughing but the church should be crying as God’s anger is coming!
America may still be the world’s only superpower, but faster than you can blink, just as God dealt with ancient Judah, America’s fortunes could evaporate.
This administration seems dedicated to that end.
Don’t think it can happen? You’re watching it, stay tuned, it will surely be a rough 4 years.
“Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.” Jeremiah 2:19

Biden’s choice of Antony Blinken to run the State Department will take the country backwards to the Obama era and beyond. Blinken, like all Biden’s picks is a liberal internationalist who hates the concept of America first. Instead, he believes in working on behalf of U.S. interests through multilateral institutions. He favors U.S. decisions be channeled through the United Nations, NATO and traditional alliances. To borrow a phrase from the Obama era, he favors ‘leading from behind.’
Secretary of State Antony Blinken orders LGBTQ flags flown at U. S. Embassies and announced he will also appoint a special envoy for Gay Rights.”
FROM BREITBART NEWS: Outfront magazine reported on the development:
“The Biden administration is off to a hopeful start, as Secretary of State nominee, Antony Blinken, has confirmed a recommitment to LGBTQ rights. In a memo from July 2020, former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper released a list of flags permitted to be displayed at U.S. military bases. Missing from the list was the LGBTQ pride flag, which Esper compared to the confederate flag. Prior to the ban, embassies raised the flag during pride month on the official embassy flagpole. During the hearing, Blinken also confirmed that he plans to appoint an envoy for the Human Rights of LGBTQ persons, a position created by Barack Obama in 2015 that wasn’t filled during the Trump presidency.”
Blinken claimed violence against that demographic increased while Trump was in office.
“We’ve seen violence directed against LGBTQ people around the world increase,” Blinken said. “And so,
I think the United States playing the role that it should be playing in standing up for and defending the rights of LGBTQ people is something that the department is going to take on and take on immediately.
According to Blinken, the US is no longer in the business of shining the light of Christ or following the principles of right and wrong taught by Jesus. That’s what we did in our glory days when we honored the Lord.
But those days are over. Instead, we have moved into the era of glorifying sin and encouraging the rest of the world to follow us down the path of destruction. The reckless ungodliness and immorality of these people are the precise sins God says are a blight on the nation (Jude 1:7).
“Raising the pride flag is one way to outright show LGBTQ solidarity. Biden is the first U.S. president to openly embrace a full range of queer rights, including transgender equality,” Outfront magazine reported. READ MORE

What’s happening to America? My commentary below is a taste of some of the things we’ll be talking about in our class this Tuesday. I’d like to invite you to join us. Your presence would be an encouragement, especially since believers are rapidly becoming America’s “outsiders” these days. Each day, you watch America turn further from Christian values and our core principles. This Tuesday we will tell it like it is about why God chose Biden over Trump. Please Register.
JOE BIDEN IS NOW THE 46TH PRESIDENT, AND HIS INAUGURATION CEREMONY BENEDICTION PRAYER LEFT JESUS CHRIST LOCKED OUTSIDE THE DOOR.
WASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 20: U.S. President Joe Biden delivers his inaugural address on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol on January 20, 2021 in Washington, DC. During today’s inauguration ceremony Joe Biden becomes the 46th president of the United States. (Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images)
LEAVING JESUS OUTSIDE
The benediction from the inauguration ceremony of President Joe Biden today, given by a “Christian” pastor with whom he has a ‘close, personal relationship’ ended with these chilling words.
“This is our benediction…in the strong name of our collective faith, amen.”
What’s that mean? “ Where was Jesus Christ today? “
He wasn’t invited and White House security refused Him entry. His Name wasn’t mentioned one time, not by anyone. America? America has come a long way from the days when the incoming president couldn’t wait to line up Billy Graham to pray. So sad.
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11
The Bible says that the Name of Jesus Christ is the name above every name. So you would think that ‘good Catholic’ Joe Biden, who constantly brags about his ‘strong Catholic faith’, would have no problem giving the glory for his amazing victory to Jesus Christ. Nope, not by a country mile. In fact, the entire proceedings began and ended with a dedication to the “God of your choosing”, which is to say, no God at all.
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:20,21
America starts a new chapter today, one that is purposely leaving Jesus outside. It’s a message that God has removed His blessing and His judgment has arrived.
Joe Biden is scheduled to become the 46th POTUS in 7 days. Will Trump remain President? Here are the options we face in the next 7 days.
Preparing For The Next 7 Days!
In the next few days the United States of America will turn either hard left or hard right. Either President Trump will surrender and hand over our government’s executive power to the Democrats and leftists or he will reveal the biggest sting operation in history.
As we witness the many things that are happening, we need to be asking the LORD for mercy upon our nation.
Only God knows the future and He has set a plan in place before the world was formed for America and with 7 days until January 20 it’s time to pray and place our confidence in his will to be done and for His mercy to be upon our nation.
Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding. Daniel 2:20-21
The ramifications for God’s decision to our country and for believers is huge and this article recaps the possibilities of both directions. One way or the other, we should have a more clear picture of the direction the Lord is taking America by January 21.
The fear of the LORD is to hate evil. Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverted mouth, I hate. Counsel is Mine and sound wisdom, understanding and power is Mine. By Me kings reign, and rulers decree justice. By Me princes rule, and nobles, who judge rightly. I love those who love Me; And those who diligently seek Me will find me. Prov. 8:13-17
LEFT OR RIGHT?
There are only two things that can happen in the next 7 days. Either Joe Biden will be installed as President of the United States or President Trump will remain in office.
If Biden is given the power of the U.S. Presidency, he has already shown where he will take the country. The Clintons, Obamas, Comeys, etc., will be back in power.
The ungodly LGBTQ agenda will be a priority. Biden has said he will tear down the Mexico border wall that Trump has built and repeal Trump’s ban on refugees from the most radical Muslim nations of the world. Abortion will be hailed as a righteous act for all women up to and even after 9 months.
Like they are already doing in China, the leftists are considering making your social decisions part of your credit score. If you are a conservative and post anti-abortion support on social media (like me), it will cause your credit score to go down.
As Believers, we pretty much know where the Biden-Harris Administration will end up. Thankfully, the Rapture comes before Satan gets unfettered control of the earth!
There’s a high possibility the Biden Administration will come after Christians, conservatives and Trump supporters with a vengeance. Biden is not even in office and they are making plans to penalize anyone who supported Trump. Facebook and Twitter have stepped up their censorship with Twitter removing 70,000 accounts since last Friday.
Pray Against Impeachment
A Biden Administration couldn’t afford for President Trump to leave office with even a shred of credibility. That’s why there’s such a rush for another Impeachment. Otherwise Trump might have a future impact to slow their agenda, so they will come after him, his family, his businesses, and any Representatives or Senators who backed him. US House votes to impeach Donald Trump a 2nd time — a first in American history.
The other possibility is that President Trump retains power. Many are aware of this possibility, but no one knows what might be going on at this moment behind the scenes. Therefore, I will try to briefly summarize, in case it’s true.
According to people who purport to have inside information, President Trump has massive evidence of individuals and nations who tried to overthrow his administration, not to mention the sham election.
This evidence has been compiled surreptitiously over the last four years. Since 9/11 the government has been able to record every digital transaction on supercomputers. So all the evil, all the illicit monetary transactions, everything, can be accessed and used as evidence.
President Trump has been meeting with his military leaders to draw up plans for draining the swamp of the evil that has engulfed our nation.
To legally trap those committing treason, President Trump had to first exhaust all of his options in all the courts and states, etc. Only then could he use his constitutional powers to expose and arrest those who are in cahoots with foreign governments.
This could be why Biden and Big Tech are so eager to get rid of him, cancelling his Facebook and Twitter accounts and even trying impeachment seven days before he leaves office.
According to what I’m being told (again, I do not know any of this as fact), President Trump would use the National Emergency Broadcast Network to communicate what he is doing. ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS and local news affiliates will be forced to air the broadcasts or lose their FCC licenses.
Federal troops will be used across the nation to keep order and to make arrests. The military will hold courts using military tribunals and military judges. And they say troops are now deployed across the nation in every major city.
Trump’s proclamation would probably be a state of emergency or lock down for days or weeks to freeze communications in order to arrest the thousands of people who are involved with supporting the foreign government espionage.
This of course means the internet could/would be shut down, and since the opposition will erupt, the possibility of riots, rolling electrical blackouts and curfews would need to be put in place.
All this would need to begin taking place before January 20. If it is true, common sense tells me it would begin soon.
There is also the very real possibility that Deep-State Leftists have distributed all the above Trump conspiracy info in order to find and track their opposition. The idea is that once Biden is in office, they will round up the “agitators” and charge them (me for example) with insurrection.
For years I’ve pointed out America is absent in bible prophecy and missing in the end-times showing that at some point she will face a sharp decline so great that it removes America’s influential role in the world.
One of the reasons for removing America is so Israel will be forced to stand alone against Antichrist. That puts Israel in a more vulnerable position in the Tribulation making her only option to cry out to the Lord. God’s amazing plan works and we see this scene playing out in Zech. 12:10-14.
Since 9/11 God has been speaking to America through a variety of voices and events and has been alerting the nation to its sins and gross immorality and calling it to repentance. Unfortunately, the nation has turned a deaf ear to God’s voice and His many calls to repentance and to the remedial judgments He has sent (Often concluding after God sends out a natural disaster as a wake-up call, that it’s caused by Climate Change).
Instead of repentance, America has increased its appetite for sin, expanded more opportunities to engage in sin, passed laws to approve sin as normal and finally in 2020 they enshrined their immorality into their political platform as policy.
This has led me to consider that Joe Biden could very possibly be God’s answer to America’s hardened heart. God often rewards countries that refuse to obey Him with ungodly leaders which then brings God’s judgment.
America has been pushing God out of our country for 1/2 a century and it has worsened every decade. In dramatic fashion, her wicked heart has been on display for all the world to see over the last four years in hatred and resistance for the Pro-Christian, Pro-Israel, Pro-America and Pro-Life policies of President Trump. How can God continue to bless a nation that so vehemently hates righteousness? So it’s very possible God has taken President Trump away and has given America Joe Biden. That’s who they deserve just as God rewarded Israel in Psalms 81:12:
So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices.
Prophetically speaking, a dramatic Biden turn of events that is possible next week would signal the start of America’s prophetic decline which aligns with prophecy and that America is missing in the last days. As such, an ungodly, corrupt, Biden administration is just another harbinger of the soon return of the Lord.
Regardless of how the 2020 election plays out, scripture is clear that when the dust settles the President of the United States of America will be placed there by God and is not some human error that slipped past God without Him seeing it coming:
By me kings reign… — Proverbs 8:15
…he removes kings, and sets up kings… — Daniel 2:21
Then God removed Saul and made David their king… — Acts 13:22
No one… can exalt themselves. It is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another. — Psalms 75:6-7
…the Most High has power over human kingdoms. He gives them to whomever he wishes. — Daniel 4:17
Thus far, 2021 has been surrounded by uncertainty but God is always faithful to provide what we need to endure and overcome this world (Jn. 16:33).
Right now, we need to buckle our seat belts for the week ahead but continue to press on, not with an earthly, political perspective but by capturing our bright future in the wonderful name of Jesus remembering God is still on the throne, Jesus is coming down, we are going up and our best days are yet to come!
TIME TO PRAY
I’ve been praying and seeking the Lord about sending this out. I believe if nothing else, Believers need to be aware of the possibilities to make good decisions.
I don’t know who will be inaugurated next Wednesday on the 20th. I would prefer President Trump, but it’s obviously God’s decision.
Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Romans 13:1
And most of all, your prayers will be needed for our country regardless of who is President.
…The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. James 5:16
Lastly, our protection and victories come from God, not guns or government. Never forget that!
The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory belongs to the LORD. Prov. 21:31
So, our prayer is for the Lord’s Will to be done and for us to respond in a Christ-like way, regardless of how this plays out.
A PRAYER FOR AMERICA
“You are the Source of our confidence in all things. You have set a plan in place for this nation and You alone know its future. We watch in awe as You work through people and events.
As we witness the many things that are happening, we ask for Your mercy upon our nation. Be the Guide for Your people and keep hearts open to Your leading as decisions are made that will impact our lives and country.
We pray your HOLY SPIRIT be upon us and “THY WILL BE DONE” for our nation and for our leaders, over the pandemic, about jobs, about divisions in our country, and Your choice for President. We ask you to intercede for us and to open ourselves to Your will. Thank you for hearing us and never forsaking us as we ask in Jesus’ Holy Name, Amen.”
America is in serious trouble. Although hard to accept, a biblical evaluation of our current national crises signals God’s judgment is beginning to fall on America!
The Blind Leading the Blind
There’s an ancient saying that dates back to 1546 when John Heywood said, “There are none so blind as those who will not see. The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know.”
Sadly, this quote aptly describes the majority of pastors today in the United States, even many of those who preach in churches whose statements of faith affirm the inerrancy of Scripture.
With a strictly earthbound vision for the future that pushes the Lord’s return to a far distant time, church leaders tell us that the turmoil of our present-day is part of a reoccurring cycle of history and that life will return to normal after the current crisis passes.
Pastors Refuse To Speak Up
Why is it that so many pastors and believers fail to see the dangers behind what’s happening in America and are too blind to recognize the uncanny resemblance of what they hear to what John wrote about in the book of Revelation?
David Horowitz, despite his atheism, wrote a book warning of the severe persecution coming to Bible-believing Christians in America (Dark Agenda). Peter Koenig, a geopolitical analyst, and previous Senior Economist with the World Health Organization, keeps warning people of the threat posed by “The Great Reset” championed by the World Economic Forum (WEF) and of the dangers posed by ID2020 and COVID-19 vaccines, although to my knowledge he is not a follower of Jesus.
Why do Horowitz and Koenig clearly see the perils ahead for us that so many pastors refuse to acknowledge? Although these secular writers do not believe the Bible, they warn of a future that’s remarkably similar to what we read about in the book of Revelation about a world turning away from God and turned upside down.
The warning lights are everywhere that should be obvious enough to wake up those in Christ to the approaching Tribulation Period as well as to the nearness of the rapture that occurs before it.
Today’s pastors refuse to talk about any of this. The church today in America resembles the Laodicean church more than at any other time in our history. Sadly, conviction is replaced with complacency, and God’s glory is often replaced with gimmicks and marketing ploys.
In most cases, pastors only talk about having your best life now, positive emotions, and taking control of your mind. Granted, we need to be encouraged, but if that’s all we talk about, the church is in trouble. Paul told Timothy to “give heed to sound doctrine” and to “preach the word.” The American church finds itself today awash with worldly concepts because it disdains the heat of conviction and doesn’t want to “rock the boat.”
Wickedness In America
From a biblical perspective, the Lord’s judgment of America is long overdue. There is plenty of evidence to back this up. Does not the ongoing horror of abortion that has led to the merciless slaughter of millions of innocent lives tell us that God’s judgment is coming?
Not only have our elected leaders refused to outlaw this murderous practice, but they stand by as Planned Parenthood butchers babies and sells their body parts to the highest bidder and demand those who oppose abortion continue to fund its barbaric practice with our tax dollars. Abortion is an abomination that is bringing God’s wrath upon America.
The list continues. America is the world’s largest producer of pornography, the world leader in radical environmentalism, the strongest state proponent of the LGBTQ agenda and transgenderism and has foolishly enshrined their immorality into the platform of the 2020 Democratic party (I have written about this HERE).
The Democratic party has taken Romans Chapter One, which lays out the immoral practices that God hates, and has adopted these evil practices into their 2020 platform in writing as important behavior for American society. They’ve taken evil and declared it good. The Lord hears each and every muffled scream of the young boys and girls caught up in the horrors of sex trafficking.
Are we so naïve to assume the Lord will not judge the U.S. and world for its abominations that so deeply grieve Him? Are we so foolish as to think that Psalm 94 refers only to the distant past without prophetic significance for the day in which we find ourselves?
In 2012, Billy Graham quoted his wife Ruth as saying, “If God doesn’t punish America, He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” The wickedness to which she referred has grown exponentially since she spoke those words sometime before her death in 2007.
Two Signs Signaling God’s Judgment on America
I am not a prophet, but my view is that God’s judgment is already falling upon America and His goodness and graciousness is already moving away from America. There are two reasons why I have come to that conclusion.
The first is because division is one of the most repeated methods God uses in scripture to defeat those who oppose him. He even uses it at the Battle of Armageddon (Zech. 14:13). Over and over, when God decides to judge a nation, He turns the people against each other. Sound familiar?
The second method God uses, which is often seen in ancient Judah, is that He allows corrupt and immoral leaders to rule the country. Both these methods are prevalent in America today! Despite what the media says about the intellectual talent and leadership of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, if God brings such corrupt leaders into the Whitehouse it’s not by accident.
Sadly, my view is that the deep divisions and turmoil that characterize life here in America are already compelling evidence of God’s judgment. And the 2020 election has only managed to deepen the divide beyond the point of no return. How can things ever “return to normal” in this country when one side believes the other side has literally stolen the presidential election? Could God have prevented this? Of course.
The Danger Of A Biden Presidency
There has been a lot of talk lately about the Great Reset (e.g. resetting the economic and the geopolitical aspects of the world with one group overseeing it; (more HERE)
Those of us who are concerned about freedom, religious expression, morality, and a plethora of other topics, are not fans of a Great Reset.
The Great Reset is so much more than the utopian dream of unrealistic, western globalists. It’s the fervent desire of the “deep state” in America and is something that both the Democrat and Republican establishments desire.
The MAGA philosophy of President Trump stands virtually alone in opposition to the globalist agenda in the U.S. Most Republicans in the Congress and Senate have already abandoned the President and his efforts to expose the great fraud so apparent in the November 3 election.
For more on this, check out this compelling interview and this mammoth document that includes 270 pages of evidence just released by Sidney Powell.
John Kerry, whom Biden has named as his “special presidential envoy for climate,” recently affirmed Biden’s allegiance to the World Economic Forum (WEF) agenda. He assured the elites of the WEF that a Joe Biden presidency would quickly advance the globalist “Great Reset” agenda “with greater speed and greater intensity than many might imagine.”
It’s clear that a President Biden (or Harris) will not tolerate any hint of dissent to their rabid support for abortion and the LBGTQ agenda. Their previous statements and appointments confirm this as does the advice that many in Congress have already given to them.
Under a Biden/Harris administration, any church that hopes to exist in its current form in the year 2025 (the end of their term) will only do so by agreeing with their radical agenda regarding transgenderism for children, homosexuality and abortion up to the moment of birth. It’s not like we didn’t know this was coming but the church in America is heading for more perilous times.
Signs Of The Approaching Tribulation
The evidence that we live in the last days is overwhelming, yet so many remain blind to what they see. They repeat the error of the Pharisees and Sadducees who failed to recognize the signs that their Messiah stood among them (Matt. 16:1-3).
The lawlessness and immorality of our day, the reshaping of the Middle East through the Abraham Accords peace agreements between Israel and their Arab neighbors, the decline of America and the great delusion of our day all speak to the rapid approach of the seven-year Tribulation.
In addition, the emphasis on “peace and security” in Israel and the Middle East, pointed out in 2 Thess. 5:3 as the day of God’s judgment approaches, tells us that the church has little time left until our departure to be with Jesus (1 Thess. 4:13-5:10).
The signs Jesus gave us of His coming in Matthew 24 precisely describe the day in with we live. It’s as if He opened up a laptop and read news headlines from 2020 to His disciples. In verse 15, the Lord refers to Antichrist’s desecration of the temple that takes place halfway through the tribulation.
How close are we to seeing Israel’s Temple being built on the controversial Temple Mount? A lot closer because of the Abraham Accords. The Temple Institute in Jerusalem has recreated all the furnishings for the third temple including the Ark of the Covenant, have architectural designs for it in place, and are already training Levites to act as priests in the new temple.
The Blind Can’t See God’s Judgment Falling They say… “what judgment?”
The Lord does not need to write His message of impending judgment on the wall as He did for King Belshazzar in ancient Babylon. He has clearly revealed His warnings for all to see in Scripture, yet so few recognize their relevance for today. They refuse to acknowledge what they know from God’s Word.
Jeremiah wrote, “They have healed the wound of my people lightly; saying, ‘Peace, peace,’ when there is no peace” (6:14). If the prophet were alive today, I believe he would similarly warn us of shepherds who ignore the signs of God’s impending judgment and the Lord’s imminent return and insist that life will someday return to normal just as in the past.
Biblical encouragement that does not include an awareness of the end times and Jesus’ appearing may comfort believers to some extent, but it only heals the wound “lightly” of those who face economic disaster, personal afflictions, tragedies, and the many other harsh realities of life under COVID-19 imposed lockdowns, draconian restrictions, and falsified panic.
The good news is that we serve an awesome and sovereign Lord who controls history and kings and who will soon reign over the nations of the world (Zech. 14:9). He’s not surprised by how wicked the heathen behave. He revealed long ago what the people would be like in the last days just as we see taking place today.
The best comfort we have in these perilous times is that Jesus is coming to take us to the place He’s preparing for us (John 14:1-3) and all the signs point to this happening in the near future. The times may be dark, but we possess a glorious hope full of the Light of Jesus!
Even so come Lord Jesus.
