Liberty In America
Facing Our Greatest Threat
Today, a surprisingly large percentage of the U.S. population is openly embracing authoritarianism while the underbelly of our government is pushing to destroy America and impose tyranny!
If you think I’m exaggerating, let’s look at some of the results of a recent Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports national survey to see just how far our once great nation has fallen.
“Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Democratic voters would favor a government policy requiring that citizens remain confined to their homes at all times, except for emergencies, if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine”
Are you kidding me?
A solid majority of all Democrats would like to lock the unvaccinated in their own homes except for “emergencies”.
And since Mr. fix-it Fauci has admitted that COVID will be with us forever, such a measure would be implemented on an indefinite basis.
“Nearly half (48%) of Democratic voters think federal and state governments should be able to fine or imprison individuals who publicly question the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications”
This is another sign that free speech is almost dead in our country. If we can’t even ask questions, what kind of society are we going to have?
The U.S. Constitution is supposed to forbid such government restrictions on speech, but apparently half the Democrats don’t believe in the Bill of Rights anymore.
“Forty-five percent (45%) of Democrats would favor governments requiring citizens to temporarily live in designated facilities or locations if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine”
Yes, you read that correctly. They really do want to put the unvaccinated in camps.
And sadly, this isn’t just a fringe group of Democrats we are talking about.
Nearly half the party would support doing such a thing, and that says a lot about where we’ve fallen to today.
“Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Democratic voters will support temporarily removing parents’ custody of their children if parents refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine”
Wow. Nearly a third of all Democrats would support this? This is yet another sign that people need to be moving out of blue states while they still can.
Religious Exception Tracking System
On top of that report, the Biden administration has just set up a system for federal workers to track all “unvaccinated employees who ask for religious exemptions”…
According to a report by the Daily Signal, the Pretrial Services Agency for the District of Columbia, an independent federal agency designed to aid Washington D.C. courts, created the “Employee Religious Exception Request Information System” to track unvaccinated employees who ask for religious exemptions from Biden’s federal COVID-19 shot mandate.
The Federal Register describes the new system as the best way to keep track of “personal religious information” that is collected “in the context of a public health emergency or similar health and safety incident, such as a pandemic, epidemic, natural disaster or national or regional emergency and/or any other lawful collection of employee information or data that is necessary to ensure a safe and healthy environment for individuals.”
Those with concerns about this new system only have until Feb. 10 to offer any public comments. It’s unamerican for the Biden administration to do such a thing, but they are going to do it anyway.
Let’s recap the whole survey to show the grim picture of America today:
- 78% of Democrats supported Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates.
- 59% of Democrats support mandatory house arrest for the unvaccinated.
- 55% of Democrats support the government fining the unvaccinated.
- 48% of Democrats support fining or imprisoning people that publicly question the efficacy of the vaccine.
- 47% of Democrats favor a government tracking program for the unvaccinated.
- 45% of Democrats support forcing the unvaccinated to live in designated facilities.
The radical Left and their followers have gone COVID-crazy.
At this point, new authoritarian measures are being implemented on almost a daily basis. If the authoritarian wing of the Democratic Party has their way, we may get there during this presidency.
This is such a dangerous time in our history, because we are on the verge of losing all of the liberties and freedoms that previous generations of Americans worked so hard to win for us.
Please pray for America and especially pray that God will allow the preaching of the Gospel to continue until the Rapture.

Reading: Revelation 17-18
One of the signs of the last days is lawlessness and America seems to be racing down its path.
7For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.8And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming.9The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders,10and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
2 Thess. 2:7-10
On his third day in office, Manhattan’s new District Attorney, Alvin Bragg, instructed his staff to stop the prosecutions of many serious crimes. They will no longer prosecute people for resisting arrest, prostitution, theft of services, or most instances of trespassing. Where he can, the new District Attorney is downgrading crimes like armed robbery from felonies to mere misdemeanors. That means people using a gun to commit robbery will, in some cases, be back on the streets without ever seeing the inside of a jail cell.
These changes, he said, will “make us safer.”
How would one go about destroying a free nation? When you think about it, the answer is obvious. Inundate that nation with the seeds of lawlessness, then water those seeds. Encourage the weeds of crime while removing good and fruitful plants. Get rid of things like order and justice and trim down the police force. Open the prisons. Make arrests meaningless. Reward evil and penalize good. Carefully nurture a garden of evil. That’s where it seems, the United States is headed.
This country has chosen to embrace and even celebrate all kinds of sin and debauchery. Unless the U.S. turns from this wickedness, it will fall. And that fall will devastate democracies everywhere. On our way down, Satan himself will use American dysfunction to bring ever-increasing chaos to the planet.
America has fallen to the moral bottom insisting that good is evil and evil is good and demanding the rest of the world follow our path to doom. We’ve pushed God out of our land and now we’re paying the price. The Bible describes this coming true in the last days. In Matthew, chapters 24 and 25, Jesus gives a discourse on the time leading up to His return. In Matthew 24:12, He said, “Lawlessness will abound.”
Mahjabin Hakimi was slaughtered in Kabul as Taliban troops searched for female sports players
Taliban Beheaded Female Volleyball Player, Posted Photos Online, Coach Says
An Afghan volleyball player on the girls’ national team was beheaded by the Taliban — with gruesome photos of her severed head posted on social media, according to her coach.
Mahjabin Hakimi, one of the best players in the Kabul Municipality Volleyball Club, was slaughtered in the capital city of Kabul as Taliban thugs searched for female sports players, her coach told the Persian Independent.
She was killed earlier this month, but her death remained mostly hidden because her family had been threatened not to talk, claimed the coach, using a pseudonym, Suraya Afzali, due to safety fears.
Images of Hakimi’s severed neck were published on Afghan social media, according to the paper, which did not say how old she was.
Beheading In Bible Prophecy
Revelation twenty tells us Christian martyrs in the last days will be beheaded.
I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
The Bible shows us that in the last-days, beheading will be the primary method used by the beast (Caliphate) for capital punishment. Believers who refuse to submit to the teachings of Islam and who reject bowing to the Image of the Beast or taking the Mark of the Beast will be martyred. They will be killed specifically for their “testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God.”
Is the Bible implying a resurrection of guillotines during the Tribulation period? What exactly is the Bible inferring will occur that will result in the 8th empire’s standard of using beheading as a means of executing Christians?
God chose to drop the clue about beheading to help us identify the beast. Who are the beheaders? They certainly aren’t Baptist’s, Catholics or Protestants. Only Muslim countries practice capital punishment by beheading. Only the religion of Islam promotes killing Christians, Jews and everyone else who doesn’t submit to them. They are the only religion in the world that practices killing those who refuse to follow them. That’s one of the reasons God describes Islam as the “mother of harlots” and the “mother of abominations of the earth” (Rev. 17:5). There’s no other religion that is worse!
In Saudi Arabia, this practice is sanctioned to the point that some beheadings are public affairs. This is quite understandable as a demonstration of state power. After, all, the “Sword of Islam,” is the image emblazoned on the Saudi Arabian flag.
Beheading infidels is sanctioned in the Quran and put into law in Muslim majority nations under Sharia Law.
The Quran makes for harrowing reading. Here’s a sampling.
Allah promises to “cast terror into the hearts of those who are bent on denying the truth; strike, then, their necks!” (8.12). He instructs his Muslim followers to kill unbelievers, to capture them, and to ambush them (9.5). Everything contributes to advancing Allah’s goal: “Strike terror into Allah’s enemies, and your enemies” (8.60).
“When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” – Quran 47:4
Antichrist and the False Prophet won’t need guillotines to accomplish their murderous deeds. In fact, Muslim cultural sees honor in the sword. For centuries, Muslims have boasted about their bravery in the imagery of the sword.
Today, with the rise of Islamic groups like ISIS, the Taliban, Boko Harem, Al Qaeda and Shariah compliant countries, we are seeing more and more beheadings as another sign of the last days.
This is telling us we are getting closer to the Tribulation. It’s likely that Afghanistan is one of the 10-nations that make up the Beast Empire and here we see them beheading just as Revelation prophesied.
America and Afghanistan
In Bible Prophecy
Bad things are taking place in the United States! What are we to make of the Afghanistan debacle and the frenzied takeover by the Talban that unfolded late summer?
For sure it is further evidence on the world stage that America’s leadership and role is greatly diminished. We have an administration in Washington that so mishandled this operation, that the only conclusion is that the catastrophe was deliberate. The message to Israel’s enemies is clear, “we’re leaving… you can take over.”
The details were likely orchestrated by the “useful idiots” in the Biden administration, made up of the haters of America and Israel. Good people were left behind, including an unknown number of Americans as well as the underground church while tens of thousands of Afghanis were allowed to waltz into America, including Muslim men with child brides.
What a contrast. In 2018, Trump harshly sanctioned Turkey until Erdogan released Pastor Andrew Brunson but in 2021 Biden betrayed the Christians in Afghanistan by sentencing them to suffer under the Taliban. It doesn’t get any stranger or any more evil. This is like watching a horror movie play out.
We hear much about the Magog/Armageddon War of Ezekiel 38-39. The 7 “stans” of Central Asia are part of the geography of ancient Magog: Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, and Pakistan. The average percentage of the Muslim population throughout the 7 “stan” nations is about 95% per country. These are some of the Muslim countries who will be among the invading armies pouring into Israel in the final war led by Turkey along with Iran, Libya, and Sudan.
Ezekiel 39:9 says Israel will burn the weapons of this war for seven years. The Biden administration chose to leave $85 billion in weaponry behind in Afghanistan. Surely some of this weaponry will soon be burning in the Valley of Megiddo where the pools of blood are so high they sometimes reach up to the horses bridal (Rev. 14:20).
While the Pentagon claims some of this equipment was dismantled, it can easily be re-built by the Russians or the Chinese. Afghanistan borders China so it’s no surprise the Chinese have embraced the Taliban with bribes for their rare mineral resources.
Iran has already set up a trading post with the Taliban in the city of Herat, Afghanistan, near Iran’s border. In Herat, the Iranians are busy trading Iranian gas and oil with the Taliban for weapons. Meanwhile, as our satellite surveillance watches the trucks coming and going, despite the illegal exchanges and despite the UN and USA sanctions, our feckless government says nothing.
In other words, Israel’s enemies have been replenished with some of the most sophisticated military equipment found on the planet thanks to hard-working U.S. taxpayers. It’s enough to make your blood boil!
Sunni and Shite, Working Together
The Taliban are close allies with Pakistan who have 100 nuclear warheads which could be significant to the revived Ottoman Caliphate. Turkey has partnered with Pakistan to build Pakistan a new fleet of “Corvette” swift boats to expand Pakistan’s Navy for the coming Caliphate wars during the Tribulation.
I think we’ll soon find sophisticated U.S. weapons in all the Red Nations below. These are likely 7 of the 10 nations I believe that will join together to form the final empire.
Look closely and you’ll notice the sea of red covers geography from the Mediterranean to the border of India. It precisely overlays 3 ancient empires depicted in Daniel 7:2-6 and Revelation 13:2 that forms the location prophesied for the 8th empire of Antichrist.
America’s Sudden Decline
The passage in Ezekiel says no nation comes to Israel’s aid in the final invasion of Israel. Where is America during Israel’s hour of need? This is striking evidence that the world’s only superpower has fallen and turned away from Israel. She’s too sick to lift a hand.
The prophetic silence concerning America seems to show that power will shift away from the United States to such an extent she has no role in prophecy whatsoever. That means we’re heading into a future season in our country that won’t look anything like our past. It could come suddenly by a financial collapse or any number of calamities or the final shock to America’s system could even be caused by the Rapture.
Since we’re living in the shadow of the Tribulation there are numerous reasons to suspect why God would allow the decline of America so rapidly. Here are 3.
Judgment for Sin – God hasn’t turned away from America, we have turned away from God. Beginning 50 years ago, we began outlawing God’s Word and His Ways which has brought God’s curse on our nation (Isaiah 10:1-4) and we are now reaping what we’ve sown.
Rise of the Beast – The superpower status of America, on the international level, will need to be weakened to allow for the rise of the Beast. America still has military bases throughout the Middle East with several sitting on nations that likely will be part of the coming Beast empire including Turkey, Iraq, Qatar and until recently, Afghanistan. Up until now theses bases represented the power and might of the Christian nation of the USA that has prevented bad actors from rising against Israel. The nuclear and missile threat emanating from our bases will need to be depleted to clear the path for the Beast… just as what happened in Afghanistan! These countries are thrilled to see the United States, the “Great Satan” leaving the Middle East.
Remove Support for Israel – God doesn’t want the U.S. rescuing Israel or interrupting His promised redemptive plans for Israel during the 7-year Tribulation (Dan. 12:7).
When the leadership of Israel rejected and crucified
Jesus their Messiah, God postponed completing Israel’s calendar (Dan. 9:24-27) by precisely 7 years. After the Rapture, God will begin fulfilling those final 7 years that lead to the fulfillment of the Abrahamic Covenant and the salvation of Israel’s remnant.
Aside from judging America for its iniquity and rebellion, the Lord’s judgment is also falling because we’ve turned away from Israel. God is taking away His supernatural protection and blessing so that at the end of the Tribulation the U.S. is but a shell of her former self on the world stage and either unable or uninterested in coming to Israel’s aid.
This is what we’re watching in 2021. The major problems flooding into our country are not just random or accidental. God has sovereignly directed them as His way of judging our country. It’s a pattern God used to judge the ungodly acts of Israel’s Northern Kingdom, “In those days… God was troubling them with every kind of distress” (2 Chron. 15:5-6). Paul says it this way, “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people” (Rom. 1:18).
America might not be around to help Israel —but God sure is! He devastates her enemies and because of the miraculous nature of the war’s outcome, Israel realizes God was on her side. For the remnant that remains, this begins the spiritual awakening of God’s chosen people.
So how big is your God? If God doesn’t need America to fulfill His promises on the world stage, think of what God can do through a yielded life in the power of the Holy Spirit. Let Him use you!
To evidence the reprobate minds and upside-down thinking that prevails in Washington these days, the Administration is talking about further negotiating with the Taliban. Oh boy! That means U.S. aid! These are heavy handed thugs with a Shariah mindset, motivated by brutality that makes them look more like ISIS than allies. Are we really going to support a regime that rapes women and throw gays off of tall buildings blindfolded? Probably.
Beginning to Unravel
America is in more danger of falling than at any time in its history. Bible prophecy predicts this very decline. From this point on, we believers have to get serious. We are going to face discouragement, disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the time between now and the Rapture.
But don’t be discouraged or disillusioned. In fact, there’s good reason to rejoice in that we are the generation God has chosen to stand in this hour! The coming turmoil will provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and your hope with those who need Christ. We still have time to reap a great harvest of souls for God’s kingdom!
Pray for Those Left Behind in Afghanistan
With the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, more of the end-time stage is being set as the 10-king nations and the Ottoman Caliphate begin to fall into place!
Of particular concern right now in Afghanistan are the many Christians who are in hiding or on the run. The underground Church needs your prayers!
The crisis in Afghanistan has taught us that no number of U.S. resources, training or occupation can change a Muslim nation under Shariah Law. The only way to make a difference is through individual disciple-making.
As death and mayhem continue, one thing is clear: the need for Jesus in the Middle East has never been greater. Now is the time to respond to the cry of our persecuted brothers and sisters in what the Lord is doing to grow His Kingdom.
One underground leader said, “Pray that God puts angels around our home! The Taliban have begun to mark houses with a C for Christian. One of us is always awake during the night, always walking around and praying, so if the Taliban should come and knock on our door, we should alert everyone.”
The Mideast Beast nations are lining up, Israel is being surrounded, America is falling, and the economy is weakening. However, as the Apostle Paul says to the troubled Thessalonians, we can take rest in the fact that Jesus is coming!
And give relief (rest) to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you
(2 Thessalonians 1:7-10).
Even so come Lord Jesus!
Our Blessed Hope
Hope. It’s a powerful motivator. It’s what replaces worry with calmness (Romans 15:13), despair with joy (Psalm 42:5), and cowardice with courage (Romans 12:12). Our God is “the God of hope” (Romans 15:13). The Gospel is “the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27) and our faith is called “a living hope” (1 Peter 1:3).
Out of everyone in our world, Christians should be the most hopeful—confident that our future is secured by a good and sovereign Savior.
Have We Lost Our Hope?
And yet, over the last two years, I have seen disappointment written on so many Christian faces. Hope seems to be elusive and hanging just outside our outstretched hand.
Believers are disheartened by government leaders. Christian parents are dismayed of the world their children will grow up in. Church families have been ruptured over Covid issues and Christian families fearful over loss of employment from the insanity of forced mandates.
Where is Your Hope?
Yes, this world is spiraling further into sin. And yes, disappointments abound. But rather than stealing our Christian hope, and smothering our Gospel energy, each sorrow should strengthen our expectation for that glorious day when the trumpet will sound and when our Lord will “swallow up death” and “wipe away our tears.”
Jesus promised He will come back for us and He certainly will! Are we waiting for that coming day with expectancy and confidence, or have we become downcast with despair? Don’t allow the joy of your salvation to be vanquished by the sorrows of our collapsing culture.
Oh Christian, be hopeful—no, be the most hopeful person in this world—because our hope is not in the present, but in a Person who we will soon see face to face.
Heed Peter’s command, “fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:13).
The darkness has descended over America. In the ninth plague, Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven, and there was a thick darkness over the land of Egypt. The darkness was so total that the Egyptians had to feel their way around.
In similar fashion but in the spiritual sense, what we’ve seen so far this year are evil leaders blindly trying to feel their way forward. And it’s not pretty to watch. Spiritual blindness has enveloped our beloved nation like a thick oppressive cloud.
After centuries of learning the ways of God is this country, the ignorance on display concerning God, His Word, His Principles, His Gospel, His Love, and His Truth is stunning. It’s grievous. Surely heaven must weep for those people that God loves and for whom Jesus died who now display such blindness and deception.
If you are also standing on the truth of God’s Word, I suspect you are caught up in a similar battle–with family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and maybe even other church members. Jesus gives us the reason for the battle when He says,
“Everyone who does evil hates the light and will not come to the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.”
