Signs of the Times

"When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.'  And in the morning, 'There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.'  Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?"

The Fall of America will precede the Rise of the Beast

by Bill Wong





Introduction


Many people know that there will be great tribulation in the end times.  The Lord Jesus (note: Jesus is Jewish and His name in Hebrew is Yahusha'/Yeshua') mentions some of these signs of the end times:

 

Matthew 24:

6    And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7    For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.

8    All these are the beginning of sorrows.    (NKJV)

 

 

However, many people miss the critical importance of these signs, because people find it very discomforting to hear “hard” truth, and they do not know how to respond (they do so negatively, ignore it, etc.) and change their lives as needed; or they fail to see or really understand that the tribulation which is coming applies to themselves.  It is a natural and wrong inclination for people to see the warning signs of war and natural disasters, but think it only applies “somewhere else” and “to someone else”.  No – the tribulation to come applies to you.  This means if you are in the United States of America, this applies to you, too. 

 

More often than not, both these reasons apply; after all, who wants to “worry” about these things and would rather just go on doing what they were doing?  But this is not the proper approach, and it is a very dangerous approach.  This is because just doing what we are doing is usually being friends of the world and not God, and therefore not being in tune with the Bible which includes keeping track of the unfolding and fulfillment of Bible prophecy:

 

James 4:

4    Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.   (NKJV)


 

Besides the natural tendency to think the signs and tribulation apply to someone else or for whatever reason or another it is considered too difficult to bear and take appropriate action (which may result in denying or fighting this vital truth), there are two other major reasons this is so misunderstood. 


The first reason is the pre-tribulation rapture of the Church doctrine that most Christians (the Protestants, not Roman Catholics) believe which states that all believers will be taken away or raptured away into heaven before any tribulation so they do not have to experience it. America is largely Protestant.  Therefore, most Christians think they will not be present when tribulation comes so they do not worry about it and do not take seriously the coming threat and the need to repent and do the will of God. However, the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine that “the Church” will be taken away is not true, which means that many believers will be completely shocked and unprepared when end time troubles come their way – and their faith will be destroyed from which they cannot recover.


The second reason is that many people do not understand that the people, events and conditions in the Bible do not just instantly or mysteriously appear to fulfill Bible prophecy.  For example, the Bible speaks of the Antichrist/Beast and his one world government or kingdom of the Beast.  Many fail to see that certain things must be in place before this and other prophecies can be fulfilled.  In other words, things must happen that prepare, lead up to and bring about the Biblical fulfillment. 

 

One such thing is the status of America.  For the last 100 years since the early 20th century, the United States of America has been the world power that was a major factor in ending two world wars and the desire of dictators to take over the world ever since.  As this world power, it has been policing and guarding the world from descending into utter chaos – in other words, it has been preventing the rise of another world dictator and another world war. 

 

We know the Antichrist will seek to be the final world dictator, so then it is appropriate and historical to ask the question of what will happen to America.  America was able to end two world wars, but will it be able to stave off World War III?   This is an especially important point to raise, because America is the #1 ally of Israel and we know Israel is at the heart of the Bible and its end-time prophecies.  This means that what happens to America is closely tied to what will happen to Israel and the end time affairs of the Bible. 

 

Will America be able to prevent World War III and if it begins, will it be able to stop World War III and put an end to the Antichrist as it was able to do to previous would-be world dictators?  The Bible says no, because the Bible states there will be an Antichrist in power who gathers all the nations against Israel, and therefore this means America cannot or will not stop him.  Something will have changed drastically with America from the formidable world power it was for the last 100 years and especially the last 75 years since World War II.

 

So when we look at the signs of the end times, it is not just about looking for signs given in the Bible like famines, pestilences, earthquakes, natural disasters, wars, etc. but also at what is included in those signs and the current events that will lead to the preparation and creation of those signs.  Yes, there will be wars, but it should not be ignored that the war will include America also, and so we should look at what is happening and will happen to America as part of the signs of the times. 

 

Another sign of the times is the rise of the Antichrist, but how will he ascend to power?  The only way he can do it is if America is not in his way and removed as an obstacle to his power and reign, which means that the fall of America will precede the rise of the Beast and in essence its fall will be the beginning of the rapid unfolding of end time tribulation.  With the end times upon us, this means the fall/demise of America as we know it is imminent which in turn tells us that America has already begun to crumble.  Stated another way, the deconstruction of America is occurring now in fulfillment of the signs and at the same time as other signs.  So again, what happens to America is a part of the sign of the end times, but in this instance, what happens to America’s leads to the rise of the Antichrist. This time, America will be unable to stop the next World War from starting or ending.  Only the Lord Jesus Christ can stop it.

 

When we put all the various reasons given above together: America’s role in previous world wars and maintaining relative peace since then in preventing further world wars, and its being the main ally of Israel – combined with the Bible telling us there will be wars everywhere and a future world dictator will come against Israel, we can see that the fate of America is intricately tied to Israel and the end times as a very important part of end-time events.  America has a unique relevance and significance in end time affairs.  This is because America is special, but this also means it is a prime target for evil spiritual forces. Indeed, what happens to America is itself a sign of the times, leading to the fulfillment of other signs of the times.  America will fall and from this comes the one world government, economy and religion of the Antichrist and his False Prophet.


Unfortunately, the sad truth of all this is that for all the reasons given above and others, many people – and especially Americans and even believers, will be caught completely unaware and unprepared for the tribulation to come. 


This article is written to let people know that there is no pre-tribulation rapture of the church and therefore all believers will undergo the trials and tribulations of these end times leading up to the rise of the Antichrist and beyond toward Christ’s Second Coming.  It is to warn everyone of what is to come and to tell you the time is very short and it will happen very soon – and the sequence of end time events begins with the fall of America (and we will see how the fall of America has already begun), because America is the only obstacle to the rise of the next world dictator and therefore America’s removal is an absolute requirement for the Antichrist to come to power.  What will come upon America shortly will disable America from preventing the rise of the Antichrist and pave the way for him.   


So this is a call of alarm to everyone: for believers, to strengthen their faith now while there is still time to base their faith on truth so they will not falter in the day of decision amid catastrophic events; it is also an alarm for non-believers – to understand that the Bible alone is truth and its prophecies are unfolding as foretold centuries ago and to please come to faith in Christ who conquered death and saves us from our sins. 


Freedom of speech will be attacked and restricted so the time is now to seek, learn, live, and share God’s truth and build up our faith and be the true worshipers in spirit and truth that God seeks in us (John 4:23-24). 


This is to warn everyone of impending danger that the sword will come upon America and then the rest of the world.  The Bible says people who hear the warning must repent and prepare themselves, or their blood will be on their own hands:


Ezekiel 33:

1    Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

2    "Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: 'When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman,

3    when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people,

4    then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head.

5    He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life.

6    But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand.'

7    "So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me.

8    When I say to the wicked, 'O wicked man, you shall surely die!' and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand.

9    Nevertheless if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.



How and why will the sword come upon America?  It will be because America has walked away from her God which is manifested in two ways:


1.   America abandoning her God will result in the decline of every aspect of America and lead toward collapse: social, government, economic, and military.  All combine – and especially the weakness of the military, to create the conditions that embolden America’s enemies and bring the sword to America.  The enemies of America are many (Communist China, Russia, Korea; radical Islamic Iran and terror organizations, etc.) and they will see weakness and attack.


2.   America abandoning her God will result in America abandoning Israel.  This is not only withdrawing support to its closest ally, but actually working against Israel by helping her enemies and trying to divide the land of Israel such as in a two-state or other “solution”.  This path to divide Israel is the path that the world including the United States is taking and will seek to force upon Israel.  The Bible makes it clear, however, that the land is not Israel’s land – it is actually God’s land:


Joel 3:

2   I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land.    (NKJV)



As we see in Joel 3 above and elsewhere in Holy Scripture those who bless Israel will be blessed, but those who come against Israel will be destroyed – so again the sword will come upon America.  The Scriptures say all nations will come against Israel and America will be included.


However, though there will be physical danger, it is not the physical danger that is the real concern --- it is the spiritual danger which is the real concern, because if we are not prepared spiritually and are destroyed spiritually due to the wrong faith or insufficient faith based on lies, there will be eternal consequences.  Preparing and strengthening our faith means more than just knowing that we will undergo the chaos and tribulations, but it means we must be righteous and turn away from wickedness, and live by Bible truth only --- returning to the faith once for all delivered to the saints:


Ezekiel 3:

16   At the end of seven days the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

17   "Son of man, I have appointed you a watchman to the house of Israel; whenever you hear a word from My mouth, warn them from Me.

18   "When I say to the wicked, 'You will surely die,' and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.

19   "Yet if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself.

20   "Again, when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I place an obstacle before him, he will die; since you have not warned him, he shall die in his sin, and his righteous deeds which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand.

21   "However, if you have warned the righteous man that the righteous should not sin and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; and you have delivered yourself."    (NASB)


Ezekiel 33:

10   "Therefore you, O son of man, say to the house of Israel: 'Thus you say, "If our transgressions and our sins lie upon us, and we pine away in them, how can we then live?" '

11   Say to them: 'As I live,' says the Lord GOD, 'I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?'

12   "Therefore you, O son of man, say to the children of your people: 'The righteousness of the righteous man shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression; as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall because of it in the day that he turns from his wickedness; nor shall the righteous be able to live because of his righteousness in the day that he sins.'

13   When I say to the righteous that he shall surely live, but he trusts in his own righteousness and commits iniquity, none of his righteous works shall be remembered; but because of the iniquity that he has committed, he shall die.

14   Again, when I say to the wicked, 'You shall surely die,' if he turns from his sin and does what is lawful and right,

15   if the wicked restores the pledge, gives back what he has stolen, and walks in the statutes of life without committing iniquity, he shall surely live; he shall not die.

16   None of his sins which he has committed shall be remembered against him; he has done what is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

17   "Yet the children of your people say, 'The way of the Lord is not fair.' But it is their way which is not fair!

18   When the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, he shall die because of it.

19   But when the wicked turns from his wickedness and does what is lawful and right, he shall live because of it.

20   Yet you say, 'The way of the Lord is not fair.' O house of Israel, I will judge every one of you according to his own ways."   

(NKJV)



How do they turn away from wickedness (repent of their sin) to walk in righteousness?  They first must know Biblically what God says sin is and then stop sinning.  God defines sin as the transgression of His law:


1 John 3:

4    Whoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.    (AKJV)


So to stop sinning, we must stop transgressing the Law of God.  Contrary to what most believers today think, God’s law has not been done away with and applies to all mankind.  The Law of God is a law of love which shows us how to love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength and to also love our neighbor (fellow man) as ourselves – faith and law go together.  This is the Bible truth only and the faith once for all delivered to the saints before the traditions of men came in and distorted Bible truth and made a huge mess of everything to this very day.   Please also see the article ‘Christ Magnified the Law’.



Besides sounding a warning to the land and the world, this article is also written to tell everyone that we must not fear all the terrible things that will transpire as long as our faith is strong. We must not get angry or be distracted, but we absolutely must, more than ever before, take to heart fully and follow the Biblical command to imitate the perfect Christ in all things --- this means we must walk as He walked in obedience to the commandments of God and also that we will suffer, especially for doing what is right, but we should take it and love our enemies to the very end even to death and forgive them as Christ did for they do not know what they are doing (Luke 23:34; Acts 7:54-60) and leave judgment to God:


1 Peter 2:

18   Servants, be submissive to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and gentle, but also to those who are unreasonable.

19   For this finds favor, if for the sake of conscience toward God a person bears up under sorrows when suffering unjustly.

20   For what credit is there if, when you sin and are harshly treated, you endure it with patience? But if when you do what is right and suffer for it you patiently endure it, this finds favor with God.

21   For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps,

22   who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth;

23   and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously;

24   and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.

25   For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.    (NASB)


Luke 23:

34   Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”   (NKJV)


Romans 12:

14   Bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse.

15   Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.

16   Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty but associate with the lowly. Do not be conceited.

17   Do not repay anyone evil for evil; consider what is good before all people.

18   If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all people.

19   Do not avenge yourselves, dear friends, but give place to God's wrath, for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay," says the Lord.

20   Rather, if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in doing this you will be heaping burning coals on his head.

21   Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.    (NASB)


2 Thessalonians 1:

3    We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other,

4    so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure,

5    which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer;

6    since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you,

7    and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels,

8    in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9    These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,

10   when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.

11   Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power,

12   that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.    (NKJV)



If there is anything you get from this article, it is to know most of all that it is an alarm for you to get prepared spiritually which counts the most.  We must be strong spiritually, be strong in our faith to be able to stand tall under the chaos, the persecution and even when confronted with death.  We must not be afraid or hate, but we must be courageous and love, forgiving those who despise us.  We must follow Christ’s example in ALL things – in obedience and how He actually lived/walked.  So please be warned and get prepared – spiritually.  Now.  Time is almost out. Get your spiritual house in order to protect yourself and your loved ones for eternity.  Treat it like your life and theirs depend on it, because it does.  




What union of church & state really means

 

The enemy, Satan (haSatan is Hebrew for “the adversary/enemy”) wanted to overthrow God and establish his own kingdom to be the supreme ruler of all creation. He thought that he was better than God and his ideas for ruling were better than God’s ideas. However, any form of government being headed by one sinful fallen creature can only lead to disaster, where the ones being governed will be oppressed, have no rights or power and their every waking thought and lives will be subject to the whim of this ruler.

 

The idea of a ruling class and especially one leader ruling his subjects with virtually absolute power comes from the enemy. Because of the enemy, mankind is also fallen in sin and models the enemy’s behavior. We see throughout history the nations of the world have all power centralized in their governments, and they proceed to exercise supreme control over its citizens’ lives, including all affairs of church and state (religion and government).

 

The role of religion deals with man’s conscience about and relationship with God/his god(s). The role of the state is to regulate the realm of human affairs. The state must not control religion and thereby dictate what man’s conscience should be regarding God/his god(s). The term “separation of church and state” came from a letter by Thomas Jefferson and does not mean religion should be removed from the public sphere.  It actually means the opposite; this is what the separation of church and state is: human government must never control who and how its citizens worship; government should not be “prohibiting the free exercise” of religion.

 

When governments do control religion and do not separate church and state, it always leads to a regime with a ruthless king or religious authority, or a totalitarian government and dictatorship, because it is an attempt to grab absolute power – which must include controlling man’s mind, especially his relationship toward God/his god(s). Why? It is because a dictator does not want competition from anyone or anything and wants complete control over the lives of his citizens.

 

And more to the point, since the enemy is the god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:3-4; John 14:30; 1 John 5:19) and wants to rule the world through his Antichrist Beast (and False Prophet) of Revelation (Revelation 13; 16:13; 19:20; 20:10), it is because the one God of the Bible is truth and is the truth that sets us free eternally (John 8:32), that the enemy will do all he can to make sure this truth must never be known. This is why authoritarian and totalitarian nations all throughout history do not know God and use all their power to always try and stamp out the Bible with every opportunity they have.

 

The very first authoritarian ruler with complete control over affairs of church and state was Nimrod (Genesis 10 & 11) who commanded the people to build a tower toward heaven, the Tower of Babel. The peoples were all one and centralized under one person and followed their own sinful natures and not God.

 

However, the most unique, durable, pervasive and most powerful example of the control of both church and state is the Roman Catholic Church (ca. 300AD) and its complex partnerships with the nations of the world beginning with the Roman Empire from which it sprang forth. It began as the religious arm of the Roman Empire, but it quickly became an equal in power. Its uniqueness comes from the fact that even after the Roman Empire was believed to have fallen, the Roman Catholic Church continued to exist as a separate entity which then married itself to the nations of Europe – even having armies and holding power over these countries. Why can it be said that the Roman Empire is only believed to have fallen? It is because there is no firm date of the fall and even when one is given, both kings/emperors (who claim a long line of succession from the empire) and historians act and indicate matter-of-factly that the “Holy” Roman Empire still lasted into modern times. It can be argued that as long as the Roman Catholic Church exists, it is evidence that the Roman Empire has never truly died.  

 

The Roman Catholic Church was still the church of Europe in the 16th – 17th century and held strong political influence as well. It was corrupt and oppressive.  When the pope refused to annul the marriage of England’s King Henry VIII to his wife Catherine in the early 1500s, the king “broke off” from the Roman Catholic Church and created the Church of England and became its head. This church was different from the Roman Catholic Church in name only and instead of people being forced to follow the Roman Catholic Church, the king dictated that all citizens must follow his church. This was happening during the stirrings of the Protestant Reformation against the Roman Catholic Church. However, as before, there was still no freedom of religion.

 

 

 

 

Breaking free – the birth of the United States of America

 

It was because of this longstanding environment of tyranny under a ruler controlling both church and state – life and death, over its citizens and the un-Biblical and unbearable doings of the Roman Catholic Church, that a reaction so bold and daring happened which will probably never be repeated again. The idea of complete domination by one over many that first bore fruit from the enemy had finally met strong resistance for the very first time.

 

In the early 17th century, the Puritans of England could not stand anymore the lack of religious freedom to follow their conscience in how to worship God and adhere to the Bible as they saw fit and they decided to leave. This is not saying they had all Bible truth; they did not. But it is to say that the idea of authoritarian rule which originated with the first fallen creature was being confronted. Mankind, faulty as he himself was, nevertheless knew better – that innately he desired life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness with the God of the Bible at its center. Mankind dared to break free from the chains of oppression and depression the enemy tied around the nations. These people had the audacity to oppose the god of this world.

 

Like Abraham, the Puritans left their homes in faith to find a new country, not knowing what they would find there. They left so they can find freedom to worship and to be free from the autocracy of kings and the Roman Catholic Church. When the pilgrims came ashore upon the Mayflower in 1620, thus was a new nation founded and the United States of America eventually came to be.

 

The founding fathers of the United States of America and creators of its Constitution knew that the only perfect government for mankind is when God Himself is the head of this government as the Bible says. It will be a theocracy and He will rule by His son the Lord Jesus Christ, who is rightfully deserving to be King, because He is also the sacrifice who has redeemed us by His blood and our High Priest who forever mediates between our father and us. The Bible tells us in no uncertain terms that no man – no created being at all, can ever be trusted to rule over others as supreme ruler.

 

However, these founding fathers also knew that until the Lord Jesus Christ returns to establish the Kingdom of God, man must still be left to govern themselves. So in keeping with the spirit of the pilgrims who broke free from political and religious tyranny, they set out to form a government that would be as perfect as they thought was humanly possible. America was founded on the truth that no government of man can ever be perfect, especially one which gave all power into the hand of one person. The founding fathers of the United States of America created a system of government which had the specific purpose of preventing a dictator or king from ever taking power in this new nation and instead giving the people the power to govern themselves with duly elected representatives. They created a government where the freedom of religion was paramount with the freedom for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness without fear of oppressive powers of a centralized government.

 

There would be a system of checks and balances among three branches of government: the Executive branch (President, Vice-President, Cabinet, etal), the Legislative branch (Senate and House of Representatives) and the Judicial branch (Supreme Court). The simplest summary of the duties of these three branches are: Executive – carries out laws, Legislative – creates laws and Judicial – explains laws if they are Constitutional. The three branches are supposed to check each other with the underlying goal of representing the will of the people. The intent of the founder fathers and the Constitution was to completely reverse the reins of power that existed before in the Satan-inspired rule of one tyrant controlling life and death of the many.

 

There are some people today who deny that the United States of America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. These people are emphatically wrong and show they are biased and blinded by the enemy. The very existence of the system of government and Constitution of the United States of America is proof that they are wrong. The reason is because its very existence is in defiance of the god of this world, Satan and his form of government of complete totalitarian rule. America’s government understood that besides God being the ruler of a nation, man cannot be trusted and all power must never be placed upon one person. People who do not understand this are either blinded or in the enemy’s camp. This would not be surprising since this world is under the control of the enemy and so that which the enemy hates, is what the misled and his people will also hate.

 

The United States of America is not perfect and no one says it is, since all man is sinful. There is only one who is perfect and He is the Lord Jesus the Christ. But until He returns and establishes God’s government, America does have the best form of government which gives its citizens freedom no other nation ever has or ever will. America is still a shining light and this is why those who love freedom from being oppressed and not to oppress others, still love to come to America and support it.

 

Many who hate America call it an imperialist (or colonialist) empire which is a ridiculous statement. If America truly was this way, it would have ruled the world already many times over since World War II since it has been the greatest superpower for some time, but instead of taking over the world when it would have been very easy to do so at that time, the United States of America instead helped rebuild what Hitler destroyed. Such an idea is completed unfounded also because America was itself the colony that broke away from colonialist rule and has opposed tyrannical forms of government ever since. 

 

And again, such ridiculous statements could not even be made if America truly was the authoritarian government it is accused of being, because it would have squashed resistance to it like a bug and not allow dissenting views. This is similar to many Americans who hate America and say other countries are better than it and loudly voice these opinions, but they never acknowledge it is only in America where they have the freedom to even express these views while the other countries they love would take away their rights. As much as these people seem to hate America, they do not seem to be leaving America.                                                                

                                                                

And again, if America is supposedly such a tyrant, why did America from the beginning not create a government where the power would be concentrated in one person? And since the pilgrims’ quest for religious freedom to practice as they please is the reason why they left in the first place, why did the founding fathers not force their ideas of Christianity upon all citizens of the new nation by making their version of Christianity the state religion? It would be perfectly within their rights as founders of a new nation. No, America did not do that. America does not want to force anybody to do anything against its will, just as God does not and also gives us freedom to choose or choose otherwise. America was created based on a foundation that gave the people the rights for freedom and to rule themselves. It gave people the freedom of religion to worship as they please.

 

The other reason many use to say they hate America is because it helps Israel. But let us be totally honest with ourselves. The enemy is the god of this world, and it is therefore expected that the entire world will persecute the only nation or nations which, imperfect as they are as all mankind is, still try to hold onto the God of the Bible – Judeo-Christian values. The fact that Israel and America are singled out by the world for attack is only further proof that Israel and America are indeed on the side of God. Therefore, those who persist in attacking Israel and America are indicating which side they are on whether willingly or not – they are indicating they are on the side of the enemy who wants to destroy Israel and her allies. Anytime these nations express their hatred of America and work towards its demise, these nations are unknowingly working toward the return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the establishment of the Kingdom of God and they will be judged as being on the wrong side.

 

Some nations just do not like America, because they feel America is young and “brash”. However, this reason that makes America unique from and hated by other countries is the reason for its existence. Its founders abandoned their original homeland to flee political and religious tyranny. Meanwhile, the countries that hate America are the indigenous nations who have the kind of authoritarian centralized governments which forced America’s founders to leave in the first place. Therefore, these nations will always have a “natural” resentment toward America. The United States of America is indeed young, but it is because it was “forced” to be birthed into a nation by the oppression of the ruling class of church and state from which it fled. It is misconstrued as “brash”, but it is really boldness, independence of will and disdain for the status quo that keeps the wrong people in power while the weak are abused.

 

No, the United States of America is not an imperialist or colonialist force, but like it or hate it, admit it or deny it, the United States is a peace-keeping force, like the police to keep crime down and citizens safe, and it is safeguarding the world as best it can and alone is keeping the world from descending to complete chaos and self-destruction. And let us be perfectly clear, when we say peace-keeping, we mean that America tries to stop nations from invading and conquering other nations, and has the right to self-defense (as was the case in World War II, which happened to be for both reasons) --- nothing more and nothing less. The real reason why the world hates America is because it feels America is “in the way”; the nations feel America is preventing them from pursuing their truly imperialistic desires, which is a reflection of the enemy’s form of government and his ego and thirst for power and death. If for whatever reason America was no longer this peace-keeping force, how soon do you think China will attack Taiwan? How soon do you think Russia will move to annex surrounding nations and “rebuild” to its former super-power status? What will North Korea do with South Korea and Japan? What will Iran do? How soon will utter pandemonium rein when America is no longer in the picture as a stabilizing force?

 

Some of these nations would love to see America fall and no longer be a world superpower, so they can become the new world superpower. The next world superpower will then not be constrained in doing whatever it wants, because the counterbalancing effect of America will no longer be there. We also must not be so naïve and think that these other nations are not also plotting and taking actions in secret to remove America as a superpower or even as a nation.

 

 

 

 

Satan the enemy especially hates America

 

This hatred of America by the nations is really an indication of the hatred of the enemy towards America. Remember, the founders of the United States of America were the ones who dared to break the cycle of tyrants ruling the masses which is exactly what the enemy wants and needs to enslave people and eventually the entire world. America dared to create a government to let the citizenry live free and comfortably in direct contrast and opposition to the enemy’s long-held form of one or a few controlling the masses. The enemy already hates mankind and wants us all dead, but he especially hates those who are God’s people and seek God’s truth. For the sheer nerve and audacity of what America has done in attacking his pride, the enemy has an added incentive to seek America’s destruction. In the eyes of the enemy, great was America’s act of defiance and therefore especially great is his hatred towards America, and the enemy has been working tirelessly ever since to devise a great fall of America.

 

This is why it is those people who love the God of the Bible and those who long to live free from oppression (praise God that they all may one day be one and the same people) who are the ones that appreciate the ideals of America as being the best example of a free society – they support America, not wanting to see America fall.  These people realize that once America falls, then the end is near.  However, when we do see these things happen, we should not be sad, but turn to the God who gave us His only-begotten son.  We must strengthen our faith and be about God’s business, being filled with great hope and joy, knowing that God will set all things right again as He promised.

In reality, it is not so much the nations that feel America is “in the way” as a peace-keeping stabilizing force, but it is the enemy himself (he influences the nations as the god of this world) who views America as the obstacle to creating a one world government with the Beast and False Prophet at its head. The enemy needs chaos and destruction and he needs to remove the lone world power that is preventing him from proceeding with his plan to rule the world. This lone world power that is in his way now is the very same one that opposed him earlier.

 

Since America was the one who defied him, the enemy works extra hard behind the scenes to destroy America and will take much pleasure in the downfall of America. He will use the very same methods he has always used to subjugate people which were the same reasons why the pilgrims fled and America was formed in the first place, but it will be used with such a vengeance as has never been seen before. America will be attacked with such great force that it will succumb to this satanic attack.

 

The enemy will change America into his own image, like the Beast  – he will make America become the opposite of what its founding ideals are. America will be changed into what it hates most and what it fled from. The enemy will make America into a totalitarian dictatorship with centralized power and the citizens totally powerless.

 

This is evidence of why the sin of Adam and Eve to do things “man’s way” and disobey God can never succeed, but only result in heartbreak and suffering. As much as man tries to do what is right, he is still weak in his sin and ultimately cannot resist his nature or the enemy.

 

The rise and fall of America is the greatest example of why man ruling himself can never work, because man and the enemy’s influence ensures mankind as a whole will eventually destroy itself despite man’s best efforts at doing good. It is the greatest example of why only God’s government on earth will work. If America, whose origins were so boldly independent and courageous in defiance of the enemy’s ways, has a system of government who is supposed to be “of the people, by the people, for the people” and is perhaps the greatest superpower ever, can fall, then what hope does the world have? It shows us that the best attempts of man can only falter in the end, despite the most noble of intentions.

 

There is no such thing as a man-made utopia.  It is impossible.  Man cannot be trusted with power (actually, man is fallen and cannot be trusted at all). So the more and more you hear people talking about unity like in a world peace utopia, not only will it not happen, but it will the path by which the Beast will rise to power over a one world government.  The Bible makes it clear that the only government that will succeed and have eternal peace is the one that the Lord Jesus Christ will establish when He returns.

Now why is it certain that America will fall? It is only because the Bible clearly states that the enemy’s Beast power will come to power in the end times. There is no question of if, but when and how. America and its government “of the people, by the people and for the people” is known as an exceptional form of government that is often called “the Great Experiment”. It is named this strictly because it has defied the enemy’s system of government. However, this “Great Experiment” that is America will end.

The only way for the Beast to come to power and rule a one world government is if America is no longer “an obstacle” to the enemy and a stabilizing force in the world. The only way for this to happen is if America is fundamentally changed or destroyed to allow the Beast to take control.  In fact, to make America into a dictatorship which is what it fled from and is the very reason for its birth, IS to destroy America.

 

However, since the Beast will inevitably come, the fate of America is made plain:

 

America will be destroyed by the enemy Satan; America will be molded into the image of the Beast – to allow the Beast to rise to power.

 

We also know it is certain America will fall, because the Bible states all nations (Joel 3:2; Zechariah 12:2-3; 14:2-3) will come against Jerusalem in the end-times. All nations includes America. Evidence of this is given in the Book of Revelation which states all nations will worship the Beast and be engaged with Babylon (Revelation 13; 18:1-3) and again, all nations will include America. This means that in the end times, America will have fallen. It will be a changed nation; not anything like we know it to be now. America will be part of the Beast system of world government.

 

We are seeing this change – this fall, of America happening right before our eyes.

It is a simple truth and is Bible truth. Americans and Christians all over the world must not ignore what the Bible is trying to tell us. Everyone must not be distracted and be caught unprepared. This warning is magnified in the case of believers in Christ in America not just because America is in the enemy’s direct and immediate line of sight, but because Protestant Christianity has its home in America and many Protestants are being lulled into a false “sense of security” with the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine lie. Protestant Christianity is especially vulnerable if they do not heed the signs that America’s fall precedes the rise of the Beast. 

 

 

 

 

Signs of America’s fall

 

Over the past couple of centuries, many have wondered what America’s place is in end time prophecy.  They usually reach one of two conclusions: either America is the Beast itself or America will be in such a state that America cannot or will not fight the Beast.

 

The Bible makes it clear that the end times Beast/Antichrist will come from thousands of miles away in the lands around the Mediterranean, so America is not the Beast.  

 

Therefore, we can only conclude that this means America will not be able to stop the Beast’s rise to power.  This means either America will be destroyed and utterly helpless/taken out of the way as an obstacle to the Beast, or America will become part of the problem in end time world events as a totalitarian government itself. 

In reality, it will be a combination of both, because part of changing America into a dictatorship will be the reversing/destruction of everything that made America defiant and strong against the enemy in the first place.  So the changing of America into its own worst enemy will cause all these things to happen: 

 

1)  The fall of America into the tyranny of a totalitarian regime is part of the plan of the enemy, the god of this world, to level out America and make it into nothing – make it just another country that will fall in line and is too weak to do anything to resist the Beast.  America will succumb to the one world government/globalist plan to weaken America and have it absorbed into the one world scheme. 

2)  America’s personality will now be the exact opposite of what it once was. It will now be a dictatorship that cares nothing about God or freedom, so likewise it really does not care about keeping the peace as it once did.  Now being like the Beast himself, a despotic tyrannical regime, America will now only add to the world’s problems.

 

3)  This weakening of America caused by its descent into totalitarian rule will invite attacks from America’s enemies.  America will have its hands full by warring with these other nations and also, of course, warring against its own citizens.

 

 

And therefore America will not and cannot prevent the rise of the Beast.  Satan will succeed in not only exacting revenge against the upstart nation which dared to break the chains of tyranny and sought life, liberty and happiness for the people, but America will very effectively be removed as an obstacle to the enemy’s plan to install his Antichrist Beast kingdom into power.  In other words, America will be weakened and changed; America will become like the Beast and become part of the Beast.  

 

Some examples of how America will fall can be seen in the totalitarian governments from the 20th century with Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China and Hitler’s Germany.   Just like these and other nations throughout history, the enemy will see to it that the people in the United States of America will be made powerless and peasants to a ruler or ruling class. Demonizing groups of people and industry, using class warfare between rich and poor, controlling various aspects of life such as the educational system, media, etc., and even racial and ethnic strife to create division and confusion are all in the enemy’s rulebook. Of course, America is already being demonized as a nation by those who rather see America weak or destroyed. These methods are then applied in an international scale where a weak or non-existent America is “equalized” – made to be equally nothing; all the easier for the Beast to take over the world (please also see the article: ‘The Signs of the Rise of the Beast’).

 

In other words, the independence of will which once represented America must become dependence or interdependence upon others in order for the Beast to arise. The individuality of America which is its strength and essential nature, as represented in its sovereignty and uniqueness, is the same courageousness and strength of will that enabled it to break away from the enemy’s system of power-mad rulers that lord it over their citizenry. Once this individuality and will is gone, America will slide backward and things will reverse where America will be absorbed and assimilated back into the world from which it fled. America will lose its sovereignty and power and no longer be self-sufficient for survival, but will be beholden to other nations – even giving itself away to other nations, it seems (which is evidence of the enemy’s plan to make all nations equally weak – especially the one most in his way).

When we begin to see this happen, it means the end is coming: the end of America as we know it and then the end of this age.  America will be severely weakened by this extreme change and will be unable to fight off and defeat the Beast, and instead will fall at the hands of the Beast; being absorbed into the one world scheme and therefore part of the end time problem. World chaos follows and the Beast will have his one world government. However, this means the return of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent, and this is our greatest joy and we must be ready.

Once America is taken out of the way by being changed like the Beast into the dictatorship it hates which is opposite of its original nature and goals, and can no longer keep the nations in check, then “all hell will break loose” – there will be pandemonium.

 

What has happened in Egypt is a small example and parallel of what will happen with the entire world once America is changed and taken out of the way. The meaning of Egypt’s example is this: regardless of what we think of Egypt’s leader Mubarak, the indisputable fact is that since Anwar Sadat was assassinated by the Muslim Brotherhood, as the leader of one of the most populous and arguably most powerful nations in/near the Middle East region, Mubarak was an American ally who has maintained peace with Israel and has been a stabilizing force in the region. Now that he is removed, will Egypt’s new leadership maintain peace with Israel and keep the region stable?

Or will the sad truth be that the new Egyptian government will be far worse for Israel and the world – and again, “all hell will break loose” in the region, causing a “domino effect” that leads to the chaos that will give rise to the Beast.  We see what has happened is that the stability of the Middle East has already rapidly worsened  (like in Tunisia, Libya, Iraq, Yemen, Syria, etc.) as secular and moderate Islamic governments are being replaced by or trying to be replaced by radical Islamic ones.  The Muslim Brotherhood came into power when Mubarak left and has since been removed by the military, but even with the Muslim Brotherhood gone, Egypt is still extremely unstable as is the entire region.  The Bible prophesies that the coming Antichrist/Beast will take advantage of Egypt’s internal problems:

Isaiah 19:

2    " I will set Egyptians against Egyptians; Everyone will fight against his brother, And everyone against his neighbor, City against city, kingdom against kingdom.

3   The spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst; I will destroy their counsel, And they will consult the idols and the charmers, The mediums and the sorcerers.

4    And the Egyptians I will give Into the hand of a cruel master, And a fierce king will rule over them," Says the Lord, the LORD of hosts.    (NKJV)

 

The old America that we still know was able to maintain peace in the world as best as possible, but once America’s government is replaced with a totalitarian regime of its own, it will no longer be this stabilizing force and the entire world will rapidly worsen into complete chaos for the one world government to exert itself and take over.

Indeed, what has happened in Egypt and the “Arab Spring” in the Middle East (and what is happening in America now to be fulfilled soon) is a sign that the end-time stage is being set at an accelerated pace by Satan to set up the West against Islam with its goals of creating a new caliphate (Islamic kingdom ruled by a successor of Mohammed) and ultimately having everyone, including America, going against Israel.


So what is Islam?  Islam means ‘submission’ or ‘surrender’.  Islam is a religion created in the 600s AD that claims its god Allah is the same God of the Bible and its book the Koran is the latest revelation of God given to mankind which supersedes all previous revelation (the Bible).  Islam says the religion and book were given to its prophet Mohammed who is claimed to be the greatest of God’s prophets.  Its adherents are called Muslims.  The truth, however, is that Allah is a regional pagan moon god pretending to be the one true God of the Bible whose name is YHWH (the four Hebrew letters Yod, Hey, Waw, Hey) which is pronounced Yahuwah, but translated mostly as Jehovah, Yahweh and written as just “the LORD” in most English Bibles; YHWH’s short-form name is Yah.  The truth is that Mohammed was physically attacked and forced to accept the religion in a cave (where he often went to meditate) by someone pretending to be the angel Gabriel and he thought he was demon-possessed.  Islam tries to do away with what came before it – the Bible and its truths, by distorting it and calling it a lie.  The collection of Mohammed’s sayings, teachings, etc. does the same thing regarding Bible truth and is also used as a guide for behavior and living.   So in reality, Islam is the most false and deceptive of all false religions, because the enemy Satan is disguising himself to be YHWH God in order to replace Him and do away with the Word of God, the Bible and YHWH’s truths.

However, it is not just a religion, but it is also a political entity – a system of government that seeks to conquer the world and impose its law called ‘sharia’ upon everyone.  Sharia law is not compatible with any other form of government and especially the Constitution of the United States of America.  Islam tries to deceive everyone to believe in it and threatens people to convert or die, and destroys everything in its path --- even other Muslims.  Its idea of this caliphate kingdom on earth is a mockery of the Kingdom of God.  So Islam is essentially the worship of hate, lies, death, and destruction.  Its main goal, however, is to oppose and attempt to destroy everything in the Bible, but especially the two greatest truths, which are: 


1) The land and people of Israel who is the chosen of God and the apple of God’s eye, and is the land and people of YHWH God:

Deuteronomy 32:

8    When the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations, When He separated the sons of Adam, He set the boundaries of the peoples According to the number of the children of Israel.

9    For the LORD's portion is His people; Jacob is the place of His inheritance.

10   " He found him in a desert land And in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye.   (NKJV)

Therefore, the land and people of Israel are prime targets to be destroyed.


2)  The divine only-begotten Son of God is Jesus who is the Messiah of Israel and also the entire world, who died to atone for the sins of mankind, but was raised in power. He will return to the Mount of Olives in Israel at the end of the age to destroy the enemies of God which are the enemies of Israel who will surround her to destroy her, and destroy the enemies of all mankind – sin, death and Satan with his fallen angels/demons.   Through Him only we reach God, His father and have the gift of eternal life:

John 14:

2  In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3   And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

4   And where I go you know, and the way you know."

5   Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?"

6   Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.     (NKJV)


Acts 1:

1    The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

2    until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen,

3    to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.

4    And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, "which," He said, "you have heard from Me;

5    for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now."

6    Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, "Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?"

7    And He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.

8    But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."

9    Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.

10  And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel,

11  who also said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven."

12  Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day's journey.    (NKJV)


Zechariah 14:

1   Behold, a day is coming for the LORD when the spoil taken from you will be divided among you.

2    For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.

3   Then the LORD will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle.

4    In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south.

5    You will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the LORD, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him!

6    In that day there will be no light; the luminaries will dwindle.

7    For it will be a unique day which is known to the LORD, neither day nor night, but it will come about that at evening time there will be light.

8    And in that day living waters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and the other half toward the western sea; it will be in summer as well as in winter.

9    And the LORD will be king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only one, and His name the only one.

10   All the land will be changed into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem; but Jerusalem will rise and remain on its site from Benjamin's Gate as far as the place of the First Gate to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king's wine presses.

11   People will live in it, and there will no longer be a curse, for Jerusalem will dwell in security.

12   Now this will be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem; their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth.

13   It will come about in that day that a great panic from the LORD will fall on them; and they will seize one another's hand, and the hand of one will be lifted against the hand of another.

14   Judah also will fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the surrounding nations will be gathered, gold and silver and garments in great abundance.

15   So also like this plague will be the plague on the horse, the mule, the camel, the donkey and all the cattle that will be in those camps.

16   Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that went against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Booths.   (NASB)


As such, believers in the divine Son of God are also targeted for destruction.


Islam says the Lord Jesus is not the divine Son of God and He did not die at all, much less for our sins, but everyone was deceived to believe He was crucified.  Islam says Jesus is a Muslim and was taken to heaven alive, and will come back to destroy Jews and Christians, and then marry and die.  Islam says God’s chosen people are not the Jews/Israel.  By claiming to be from the same God of the Bible, it tries to appear legitimate and truthful, but it is not.  It exists to be a false version of everything about YHWH God. Islam has created a false God, a false holy book, a false people of God, a false messiah (it even has its own), removes atonement of sin and reduces the divine Son of God to just a man and prophet, etc.

Please understand that this is not being written, because we supposedly dislike or hate Muslims – no, this is absolutely not the case at all.  We love Muslims as we love ourselves and do not want them to be misled and hurt; we want our Muslim brothers and sisters to know the truth of YHWH’s love that it is through the perfect and sinless Messiah’s atonement as the Lamb of God that ALL mankind is saved from our fall in sin and can have eternal life.  Only His perfect blood is powerful enough to wipe away our debt of sin and death and balance the equation --- to cancel out sin and death, and give everlasting life:

John 1:

29   The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

30   This is He of whom I said, 'After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.'  

31   I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water."     (NKJV)


Romans 5:

6    For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.

7    For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die.

8    But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

9    Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.

10   For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

11   And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

12   Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned--

13   for until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

14   Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come.

15   But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many.

16   The gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the one hand the judgment arose from one transgression resulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the free gift arose from many transgressions resulting in justification.

17   For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.

18   So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men.

19   For as through the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous.   (NASB)


Romans 6:

23   For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.   (NKJV)

Romans 13:

8    Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.

9    For the commandments, "You shall not commit adultery," "You shall not murder," "You shall not steal," "You shall not bear false witness," "You shall not covet," and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

10   Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.    (NASB)


Most Muslims are good people and do not wish harm on anyone, but they are unfortunately deceived by this false religion’s many lies which are aimed to take people away from the one and only truth in the Bible and eternal salvation through faith in Jesus, the Son of God who takes away the sins of the world.  We must pray that they can clearly see how Islam was created to undo YHWH and His Bible truth in order to replace it with a fake.  And contrary to its defenders’ claims, Islam does promote violence against “unbelievers” or “infidels” to kill them – and was created to replace and destroy YHWH God, His son Jesus, His people and land Israel, all truth in the Word of God, the Bible, and all believers in the Bible.  Its attempt to blot out the two truths above is why many of the Islamic faith have a blind irrational hatred of Israel, Jews and Christians above all other people and things.  It is why every day we see acts of violence and other things (“jihad” or “holy war”) from these people to wipe out Israel, Jews and Christians all over the world (called radical or militant Islam) which is proof it is a religion of hate, violence and death.  Further evidence that Islam promotes hate and destruction is the fact that Muslims kill other Muslims over their faith.

We are in the end times and we must pray for our Muslim brothers and sisters – whoever they are, peaceful or violent, that they can break away from the snare of Islam and come to know the awesome love of God that promises to cleanse us of our sin and restore us to the eternal relationship with the God who created us, walking side by side as in the Garden, before we fell in sin.  If you are a Muslim reading this, then please do not fear, but realize that the time is very, very short and know that the love of God, His truth and your eternal salvation is the most important thing; so please be completely humble and honest with yourself and pray that the Messiah and Son of God, the perfect sinless one, will show you that He is who the Bible says He is --- as many of your brothers and sisters have already found out through prayer, reading the Bible, dreams, visions, etc.  Praise YHWH that He is currently calling out more Muslims than ever before to know His wonderful truth and accept the atoning blood of the Lord Jesus, and pray that He calls out even more day by day, every day.  HalleluYah / Praise Yah!


As he is the father of sin and god/ruler of this world (John 14:30; 2 Corinthians 4:4; 1 John 5:19), and many angels could not even withstand him, the enemy will succeed in changing America. This change which essentially removes America as a stabilizing force in the world, will usher in utter chaos among the nations which will all take advantage of the absence of America’s presence to keep them in check. The enemy will be successful in reversing the roles back to the way it was before America stepped out in faith to buck the trend where the world’s nations walked like lemmings to the beat of Satan’s drum.

The fall of America which must precede the rise of the Beast is a reality and it is happening even now. Just like the superpower nations of the past, all phases of the nation’s structure and power base will be weakened to a point of no return with an inability to function. The fall will be complete: socially, politically, economically, and militarily – and they are all inter-related, because a morally corrupt society will result in corrupt politicians; and how can immoral politicians run a nation well?  It cannot, and so the nation’s economy and security will also be endangered and suffer. These nations fall because they become weak internally by first destroying themselves from within and only then external forces and enemies can attack and destroy it. America will forget what made it great – its Judeo-Christian values, and great will be its fall:

Matthew 7:

24   "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:

25   and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house;

      and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

26   "But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:

27   and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall."   (NKJV)

 

 

 

Social (society) decline

We are seeing this socially as America’s culture, American society, continues to descend into decadence and immorality, tearing apart at the seams. People are more interested in the pursuit of pleasure, money and mindless distractions than ever before. People are more concerned with self-gratification and making themselves god. Divorce rates are at all-time highs and so are the numbers of single-parent homes.  The Judeo-Christian values upon which the nation was founded are being forgotten and on the decline; government leaders have already denied that America is a Judeo-Christian nation.  

A recent example of this degradation of society can be seen in the legalization of recreational marijuana (not just for medical reasons) in the states of Washington and Colorado.  Some say why not make it legal for everyone since alcohol is legal?  But does this argument hold any water?  Do two wrongs make a right?  And when a person says “what about alcohol” – is it not just a sad admission by this person that according to the logic of his statement, that both of them are bad for you?  Why add even more, especially when marijuana is a gateway drug that paves the way for the use of other drugs?


Scientists and people know life begins in the womb at conception, but many still believe saving trees, animals and the environment are more important than saving babies in the womb.  Due to plain deception and misinformation, the false evolutionary theory has borne its sad fruit.  Survival of the fittest seems true since indeed the weakest and most defenseless are killed in the tens of millions through abortion since 1973 with the Supreme Court ruling in Roe vs. Wade, but these millions are our own young.  Are species supposed to survive by purposely killing its young, because they are “inconvenient”?  Do species survive if it behaves in ways that ensure the propagation of the species is impossible? 

This is not behavior that comes from natural selection – there is nothing natural about it.  It is evidence that all mankind is fallen in sin and we make the wrong choices, since the very beginning.  This is why we should see the irony in the term “pro-choice”; it means the ability to choose to kill human life in the womb – and this is why “pro-choice” is the opposite of “pro-life”.  What is the opposite of life, but death?  So the opposite of “pro-life” is really “pro-death” or “pro-choice”. 

The senselessness is also seen in the existence of the organization which advocates and performs the most abortions: Planned Parenthood.  It was founded by Margaret Sanger who was a well-known racist and eugenicist (‘eugenics’ is the controlling of reproduction/breeding to remove “inferior” genes to achieve a “perfect” or master race of humans) whose goal, in her own words, was to get rid of supposedly “unfit” classes of people “who never should have been born”.  She included African Americans as a group of people she wished to get rid of: “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population”, she said, “if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”  (Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon).  She was strongly for a woman’s right to sexual satisfaction no matter the cost and was vehemently against child-birth and marriage (she left her first husband, because of an adulterous affair); she said: “The marriage bed is the most degenerating influence in the social order” (Birth Control in America, p.23).  She advocated for sterilization and also said: “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”  (Women and the New Race, Eugenics Publ. Col, 1920, 1923). 


Though Sanger was born in the late 19th century and her work was done mostly in the 1st half of the 20th century, she has had a huge influence in the downward slide of world, and especially American, culture to this very day.  Sanger – an unabashed racist and eugenicist, is the root of the “pro-choice” abortion movement and Planned Parenthood.  As mentioned earlier, science has already shown that life begins at conception, confirming God’s Bible truth:


Psalm 139:

13   For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb.

14   I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.

15   My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;

16   Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me,

          When as yet there was not one of them.    (NASB)



So why are so many promoting what is essentially murder? 


A lot has to do with hiding the truth from potential mothers and fathers who do not know better.  A lot also has to do with the degeneration of society today where many just cannot stop to think logically about what they are doing or advocating, or even worse – they do not care at all.  It is sad to say, but a large portion of society seems to believe themselves what Sanger promoted: the supposed sexual satisfaction of a woman regardless of anything, or anyone, else.  Of course, the men are not guiltless either, as they take advantage and also believe in getting rid of supposed mistakes, but they are not mistakes – they are children!  They are your children and you are the parents – both man and woman.


The fact that so many support Planned Parenthood and abortion (not for the sake of the life of the mother) is truly a sad reflection of the decline in society today and is a sign of the times.  This is perhaps no more evident in the name “Planned Parenthood”.  It is hypocrisy and morbidity at its worse, the ultimate oxymoron.  How is it possible that there is so much support for a company which calls itself “Planned Parenthood” when what it actually does is PREVENT men and women from becoming parents – by killing the life growing inside the mother?  Parenting is giving life and not terminating/aborting it as if it was last night’s garbage down the chute. 


As if to highlight this inhumane treatment of babies in the womb and how “pro-choice” is actually “pro-death”, the opposite of “pro-life” and is wrong on so many levels, several undercover videos have been released in 2015 which show Planned Parenthood personnel discussing the selling of baby body parts for profit (for example: they prefer to sell per body part to get more money instead of by per whole baby).  Some of these personnel were joking (for example, how the money can be used to help buy expensive cars).  Others spoke of how abortions have to be done a certain way (“crush above”, “crush below”, etc.) to preserve specific organs in high demand.  A former employee said her supervisor asked if she wanted to “see something kind of cool” and then tapped the heart of a late-term aborted baby which made it start beating again.  She also said that Planned Parenthood took and sold these body parts with any patient consent.  What makes this even more frightening and further shows just how socially/morally corrupt America has become, is the fact that even though what Planned Parenthood has done is horrifying and illegal, attempts to defund (stop giving the company money from taxpayer funds) have failed.  Truly, a sign of the times that we are near the end of the age.


As Jesus said, God created man and woman to become one flesh as husband and wife.  And the very first commandment God gave them that first day was for man and woman to be fruitful and multiply: 

 

Matthew 19:

4   And He answered and said to them, "Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female,'

5   and said, 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh' ?     (NKJV)

 

Genesis 1:

28   Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."    (NKJV)

 

 

However, in these last days, America defies God to His face, engaging in behavior that is exactly opposite of God’s will.  America has made the choice to do that which is not fruitful and does not multiply life.  Instead, the natural selection America has made is not natural at all: America has chosen the path of death – behaving in ways that destroy life and cannot bring forth life, and which ensure the extinction of mankind.  

 

All mankind must forsake the weaknesses of the flesh and repent; we must realize we need the love and forgiveness of God that comes through the atonement and resurrection of Jesus the Christ.  There is much more to life than passing worldly pleasures; we were meant for much more: eternal life.  The time is short and getting shorter.

 

More and more every day, the moral compass of America is increasingly being degraded and set to be discarded, to be replaced with behavior that leads to the end of society and incurs judgment.  

Things will get worse and worse as we see the nations’ leaders push to make it into law that which is against God.  Society will decay until it looks like the cultures in the days of Noah (the Flood) and Lot (Sodom & Gomorrah), but people will blindly go on living their lives, not knowing that they are in grave danger, as Jesus said:

Luke 17:

26    "And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:

27    they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.

28    "It was the same as happened in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building;

29    but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.

30    "It will be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed.

31    "On that day, the one who is on the housetop and whose goods are in the house must not go down to take them out; and likewise the one who is in the field must not turn back.

32    "Remember Lot's wife.

33    "Whoever seeks to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.    (NASB)

 

Referring to the signs of the end times, many quote we will see things “as it happened in the days of Noah”, but often miss the fact that the Lord Jesus said the signs will also be “as happened in the days of Lot”.  This means those times were very bad and equally bad.  Lot lived in Sodom which was destroyed.  Sodom was a city known for its sexual sin, specifically where men had sexual relationships with other men and women with other women.  Are we seeing these things happening in America today?  Yes, but not just relationships – the minds of men have declared that man is his own god and can literally do whatever he wants with whoever he wants. 

To prove that America has abandoned the God of the Bible, in 2015 five out of nine of the judges of the Supreme Court have ruled and “made into law” that men can marry men and women can marry women in defiance to God’s clear creation and intention.   And as we have just started to see and will only get worse and worse, people who disagree with this man-made law will be punished – persecuted and silenced.  This is part of the larger push to remove God out of our public and private lives where even speaking God’s Bible truth will be a “hate” crime (as it already is in Canada).  


And let us be clear: all sexual sin is wrong.  Sexual sin includes sexual relationships between men and women before marriage (pre-marital sex) and relationships between men and women with other people besides their spouse (adultery).  Also, the Lord Jesus said that even looking at someone with lust is a sin/adultery and divorce should be avoided except for adultery:


Matthew 5:

28   But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.    (NKJV)


Matthew 19:

9    And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery."   (NKJV)



But what do we see today?  Many people engage in pre-marital sex and adultery is also rampant (where even companies make money arranging adulterous relations for people without their spouses knowing).  Some numbers state that the divorce rate is 40-50%, but even half of 1% is too high.  All these are sins we must repent of and stop doing.  And these are just sins from fallen mankind that are corruptions of the God-intended relationships between men and women.  So when we see Jesus say an end time sign is when things are like the days of Lot/Sodom where people engage in sexual behavior that is outside of God’s intentions for holy relationships between men and women (such as men with men and women with women) and it has become common and regarded as normal, then we really must pay attention.  If it is happening, such as to the degree that the governments of men have declared men can marry men and women can marry women contrary to God’s word, then it means we are in the end times.   


Have we also ever considered that when Jesus says people “were marrying, they were being given in marriage” that He is essentially saying that the institution of marriage/holy matrimony will be utterly destroyed in all possible ways?  What are the possible ways?  We already mentioned them: adultery, divorce, and marriages of men with men and women with women.  So the Lord Jesus is being very clear that the destruction of marriage in all aspects is a sign of the end times.  Marriage is supposed to be holy between a man and a woman as God created, and sex should be within the marriage only:


Hebrews 13:

4    Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.    (NKJV)


So according to Jesus, we know we are in the end times when we see that things are like the days of Noah and Lot/Sodom, and we see the various ways that marriage/holy matrimony is made a mockery of and being destroyed.  But there is one more deadly sexual sin that destroys marriages and tells us for sure we are at the time of the end: when would-be parents kill their unborn children for the sake of sexual pleasure, convenience and pride.  Long ago people killed their infants in the fire to appease their pagan gods and what we do with abortion today is not very different.  This time, we kill our children for the sake of the gods of sexual pleasure, convenience and pride.  And we do so by crushing their brains and tearing them apart by vacuum or other medical equipment, and to add insult to injury, we sell their body parts to make a profit and buy expensive cars. 


Abortions destroy marriage by preventing men and women from becoming parents, because if they have the child and are not married, they should do the right thing and get married.  Within a marriage, abortion can place a heavy burden upon the heart, mind and health of the would-be parent (usually the mother) which could damage the trust and relationship in the marriage.  Abortion also makes it easier to commit adultery, because the supposed “mistake” of having a baby in this sinful affair can be erased from existence (but the real mistake is committing adultery).  Of course, treating life growing in the womb as a “mistake” to be disposed of also increases the incidence of pre-marital sexual relationships.  So it is bad enough that holy relationships between men and women and marriage/holy matrimony are destroyed, but this destruction is made worse and multiplied exponentially when we add abortion, because not only does it lead to an increase in other incidents of sexual sin, but now we have also added murder into these relationships.

We must not overlook just how pinpoint accurate Jesus’ prophecy really is about behavior as in the days of Noah and Lot/Sodom and the destruction of the marriage institution.  If we ignore it and refuse to see, we do so at our own peril. 


There are some who say that Jesus would have allowed relations between men with men and women with women – including being married, but this is not true.  We have already seen how Jesus said that God made man and woman to marry/become one flesh and be fruitful and multiply.  Relationships of men with men and women with women clearly conflict with Jesus’ words.  Also, God through the apostle Paul states without doubt that such relationships are not natural and not according to God’s will:


Romans 1:

18   For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

19   because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

20   For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

21   because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

22   Professing to be wise, they became fools,

23   and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man --- and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24   Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,

25   who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26   For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.

27   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.

28   And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

29   being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,

30   backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31   undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;

32   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.    (NKJV)



Please note that we are not “picking on” people who engage in relationships with other members of their own sex or have had abortions.  We are addressing all sins and not just sexual sins.  Just like with all sins (including sex-related sins) – everyone is wrong and fallen and will incur judgment, and must change and be reconciled with God in Christ.  We cannot tell people about eternal salvation without also telling them that sinful behavior must stop.  This is the same for any sin including greed, stealing, hate, etc.  They all must stop.  We must also warn everyone that the time is short for repentance.  To repent is to turn around/reverse from your current sinful behavior and stop doing it, and start doing what is righteous and good.  To repent is more than just feeling sorry; to repent is to stop walking your own human way which is fallen in sin and to start walking in God’s way instead.  The end times are here, so whatever sins you are ensnared in, you must plead to God in Christ to help you become untangled from these sins.  He can do anything and help you, but you must let Him because He will not force you. 


Please, we pray that you listen to what God – who loves you very, very much, has to say in His holy word about turning from all sins and this applies to every person here on this planet, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).  He wants us all, who are like prodigal sons and daughters, to realize and turn away from our wrong ways and return to Him, and He will accept you into His loving arms:


Luke 15:

18   'I will get up and go to my father, and will say to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in your sight;

19   I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me as one of your hired men."'

20   "So he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.

21   "And the son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.'

22   "But the father said to his slaves, 'Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet;

23   and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and celebrate;

24   for this son of mine was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found.' And they began to celebrate.    (NASB)




As America is the main obstacle of Satan, this degradation of world-wide culture will appear and be magnified in America first.   

There is also social unrest and divisiveness in the people caused by the promoting of class warfare: that there are supposed “haves” and “have-nots”, and it is okay for those that have less to take from those who have more in the name of “fairness” or supposed “equality”. 

Related to this intentional dividing of the people by class is the government’s promoting racial division (white vs. black) by interjecting itself in cases of race that provoke racial hatred, while completely ignoring its duty and many opportunities to keep Americans unified regardless of race.  Where it should step in to calm things down, it instead allows itself and others to make things worse.  America is more divided than ever when it should be more united than ever, and much of the reason for this is due to the actions and policies of its leaders.  Instead of taking accountability for its failed policies that keep people down and dependent on handouts, and uniting people regardless of race, leaders are instead pointing fingers at others and encouraging this class and racial division between groups of people.  This division between races has resulted in riots and criminal activity when some black communities did not like that police had to kill a black person in the line of duty.  Some members of these communities called for police officers to be killed and government leaders did nothing to calm things down.  And then when some members of the black community actually went ahead and killed police officers “in revenge”, the same government leaders did less than nothing as if to condone it.

There is an almost overwhelming air of lawlessness that is being fostered in America today by the entities which have the largest influence upon society – the nation’s leaders and the entertainment industry.  


Remember the saying: united we stand; divided, we fall.  This applies to not only the social division and decline, but every aspect of America’s decline: politically, economically, militarily/security, etc.  America is falling apart at the seams in all areas. 


The Lord Jesus puts it best:


Mark 3:

24   "If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

25   "If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.

26   "If Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but he is finished!

27   "But no one can enter the strong man's house and plunder his property unless he first binds the strong man, and then he will plunder his house.   (NASB)


The truth of the matter is that since Satan is god of this world, Satan has united his forces to cause the division in America which will lead to America’s fall – and great that fall will be, because America has fallen away from God:


Matthew 7:

24   "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:

25   and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

26   "But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:

27   and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall."    (NKJV)

 

 


The government says it can be trusted to be in charge of making things fair, but it is really all for political gain and for the few in power to remain in power by leveling the field – all the easier to control everyone.

Remember the quote: “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.”  It would appear those who want will get it for now at the expense of others, but eventually government will take away everything from everyone.

In truth, when government presents itself as sole provider of all our needs and controller of all we are, then it is removing God from society – from our lives. This government becomes a god.  This government then compounds the problem by actually removing or substituting God altogether on purpose, essentially creating a Godless society.  Is it a coincidence that prayer and Biblical displays are being removed from the public sphere?  Is it a coincidence that the God of the Bible is not tolerated and “Bible bashing” is okay, but we are all supposed to be tolerant of everything else? Is it a coincidence recently we were told that America is not a Christian nation which denies the truth that it does have Judeo-Christian origins?  Is it a coincidence that there will be measures put in place soon to restrict free speech, but we know it is really targeted at Christians and to prevent the Bible truth from going out to the world when it is needed most?



However, we must note that social decline is not just a change or decline in the morals of a society.  It is also the deliberate changing of society by its leaders from one thing to something worse – in order to take control of all aspects of society. 

 

We have just recently seen how the American government has taken control of the nation’s healthcare (which is about 1/6 of the economy), by passing a new healthcare law which was declared unconstitutional as written, but can only be allowed if it would be implemented as a tax.  So it became a law as a tax even though it was never presented again as a tax which would be legally required and demonstrate “truth in advertising”.  Citizens were always told it was not a tax.  What makes all this worse, is that lawmakers did not know everything that was in the over 2000-page law, but passed it anyway “so we can find out what is in it”.

 

But this is not the only way that the nation’s leaders are attempting to change and control American society.  The federal government is trying to control education as well.  This power grab to control the educational system follows the example we just saw with healthcare – where something is pushed upon the citizens without anyone really knowing what they are agreeing to or making into law, and the only way they will find out is after it takes effect “so we can find out what is in it”. 

 

We are talking about the “common core” curriculum.  It is even worse, because the “common core” curriculum is not even a law.  The federal government decided to just create a program and told the states governments (which has huge financial problems) that they would get federal funds for education if they agree to implement the federal education program to be named later.  The states accepted.  Now, the states and local governments are finding that they do not like or want this “common core” curriculum.  The reader can see how this is like blackmail or bribery and bait and switch/false advertising.

 

The federal government says it is to set higher standards, but the states and the citizen see it as the national government purposely locking out the state and local governments – including the parents, from participating in the education of the children.  The “common core” curriculum also changes unnecessarily how many things are taught, which includes indoctrination of the children.  In controlling the educational system, the federal government will be able to change society by controlling people and generations through the children – dumbing down America by “educating” children who are actually being indoctrinated to either be compliant with government ideas or be shaped into distracted and dull citizens with weak wills incapable of independent thought and resistance to the oppression of government.

 

So again, just like healthcare, it is an attempt for the national government to control a large portion of society.  In healthcare, it is your physical well-being and in this case, it is aimed directly at your children.  A national government that seeks to change society by controlling your healthcare and the education of your child cannot lead to something good.  With your health and education being taken over, is anything left to the individual and the individual’s liberty?  What else can be worse?  Unfortunately, things are and will get worse.

 

 

Another sign of the decline in American society is unfortunately what seems to have taken almost complete control in America today.  Political correctness and the loss of common sense have overwhelmed the nation.  Society is already distracted with technology and pleasure, so the fear of supposedly hurting people’s feelings has added to and worsened the environment where now irrationality has taken over and there is a paralysis to do what is needed and right.  It is a willful blindness to see what is really happening and what must be done, but the leaders in government, media, industry, etc. all seem to be content to walk through life with this blindness and careless attitude, and it is has filtered down to the average citizen today. As you can already see, SeekGodsTruth.com is not trying to be politically correct, because politically correctness most often leads to deception, danger and death (both physical death and spiritual eternal death).  Political correctness hides the truth and distracts people from it or just plainly buries truth.  However, only the truth must be told, because only the truth gives freedom and life.   

 


 

A reflection of this cultural change – the change of America’s heart, is reflected also in America’s relationship with Israel. Though America has always supported Israel, at times it has been a double-minded and inconsistent relationship and it is getting worse. Sometimes it is questionable if America is really “helping” Israel’s plight and current conditions indicate a total disconnection with Israel may be on the horizon (note also what was mentioned before: Bible states all nations will be against Israel at the end).   We must be reminded that the Bible says God will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel (Genesis 12:3; 27:29).

 

If it is true that ALL nations (includes the United States of America) will come against Israel in the end time, then this means that America will no longer be a friend of Israel and become an enemy.  In other words, America will one day no longer bless Israel, but curse Israel.  If the Beast is coming based on America’s fall, then we should eventually see America turning against Israel.  Ask yourself this: are you seeing America starting to turn against Israel NOW despite how it might try to fool its citizens that it is really on Israel’s side?

 

 


 

Political decline

We are seeing this politically as it becomes more apparent each passing day that the Constitution and the systems of checks and balances the founding fathers put in place are not working, because they are being disregarded, circumvented or reinterpreted. For example, the executive branch (the current administration is under President Obama) ignores the legislative branch by going around them and somehow enacting laws by fiat with executive orders, without the proper representation of the people through the legislature which is the voice of the people to counterbalance the executive and judicial branches.  These tactics seem to be done to push upon the people a radical ideology.

 

It also appears that the elected representatives are no longer acting on behalf of the people.  Even the judicial branch has overstepped its boundaries by not just deciding whether a law is Constitutional or not, but it has essentially legislated from the bench – creating laws, by the whim of a majority vote from 9 justices. At times, it has actually gone out of its way to go against the people and the Constitution in its decisions.

Where once it was logical to assume at least one branch of government would check the others and be a counterbalance to them, now it seems that all branches, and the various parts within each, are all on the “same” side and that side is against the people.

An example of this is the recent healthcare program that was made into law.  The healthcare program was promoted as a non-tax to gain support, but when it was presented before the Supreme Court (which is composed of nine judges or justices), it was made into a tax in order to pass.  In other words, the law was unconstitutional as it was presented, but the only way it can be made into law was if it can be changed into a tax. 

There are three problems with this: 

1)  The will of the people was circumvented by their being lied to.  It was called a non-tax to get support, but made into a tax at the last minute when it was “too late” to back out.

2)  The Supreme Court overstepped its authority.  It is only supposed to rule on the constitutionality of legislation presented to it as it is.  It should not be recommending how legislation can be made into law and then proceeding to actually change the legislation to have it passed.  This is the Supreme Court essentially creating laws and bypassing the Legislative branch.

3)  Up to the point of reaching the Supreme Court, the legislation was put through from beginning to end as not a tax.  Since it was made into a tax by the Supreme Court at the last minute and thereby circumventing the people and other branches of government, what really should be done is to present the legislation anew/again, with the true and full disclosure of what it is (a tax under the Constitution) to be voted upon by the people and the Legislative branch.  Will this ever be done for this or any law?  Will legitimate attempts to get the judicial branch to just do its job to determine if something is constitutional or not (and not make law) ever succeed?  No, because the other branches of government are just as power-hungry, opposed to the people or weak.

 

We know the fall of America is imminent when we see that one of its core principles which formed the basis for the birth of the nation:  no taxation without representation, has been circumvented and completely discarded and trampled on by the federal government.  This occurred with the passing of the healthcare bill above which takes effect in 2013. 


The executive branch promoted the healthcare bill as not a tax and pressured the legislative branch to pass it.  The legislative branch likewise promoted it as a non-tax and rammed it down the throat of the citizenry by passing it in a hurry without even knowing what was in the law.  So the American people thought their will was being represented when the healthcare law was passed as NOT a tax.  When presented to the Supreme Court to overturn the bill as unconstitutional, the judicial branch agreed that it was indeed unconstitutional as proposed – which was as NOT a tax.  However, instead of just reviewing if a proposed law/bill is constitutional, as it is supposed to do, the judicial branch oversteps its authority and states the law can only be constitutional if it is a tax – and then it goes on to declare the healthcare bill as a tax and constitutional and MAKES it a law, which is not within its constitutional powers to do. 

 

This is not a small thing.  This is about the health and well-being of every citizen and the healthcare system/industry is a large portion of the economy.  And even more than that:  this is about circumventing the will of the people – it is supposed to be government “of the people, by the people, for the people”.  But just like that, the American people have had their will totally bypassed and are now taxed without representation.


The passing of this healthcare law attacks and bypasses the Constitution yet another way.  Even though the law is already passed and in effect, the executive branch, all by itself, decides to make changes as it goes along: choosing to enforce some parts of the law, while postponing and not doing other parts.  This is in direct opposition to the Constitution which clearly tells us that if there should be changes to an existing law, it must be changed, resubmitted for review to the legislative branch and signed again.   These changes in the law by the executive branch has occurred multiple times and the unsettling part of this is not only that it is able to do so against constitutional law, but the other branches of government are completely silent about it and are allowing this one branch to exceed its powers. Therefore, all branches are not serving the will of the people and upholding the Constitution.


Again, the judicial branch of government and the Supreme Court does not have the power to make laws (legislate from the bench), but yet it continues to do so – more and more each day with bigger and bigger decisions of great importance that impact all American citizens.  It is not within the power of the Supreme Court to make laws to go around and override the will of the American people and the Constitutional powers of the 50 states, but this is exactly what it is doing.  This means the political opinions of a majority of the 9 justices (just 5 justices is enough) are imposed upon all Americans.  How can the will of a mere 5 to 9 people be made into law that is supposedly binding on 320 million people?  This is exactly what just happened when the Supreme Court by a 5 out of 9 vote overrode the will of the people and states by saying men can marry other men and women can marry other women.  How can the Supreme Court, which was created by the Constitution with very specific authority, proceed to turn around and become something and do things which are not within the Constitution to – and get away with it?  The only way this can happen is if the entire political system (all 3 branches) is corrupt and falling apart, allowing and even working together to make these things to happen – to make things into law which fit the will of the few and not the many which results in overriding the will of the many, most Americans so as to control them.


So we see the political decline in America is in all of its branches of government – it is not able to function correctly as designed, because the people in office themselves have changed. It is not a problem of the Constitution, but the people in government who undermine and try to circumvent it, or are not able to uphold it, because they agree with and are aiding in the dismantling of the Constitution or are too weak, too afraid, too corrupt themselves, too much into their own power, severely outnumbered, or other reasons.  It does not matter which political party it is or whether it is previous or current administrations (both are guilty in the past and the present), but the values of the government are not the same as the values of the people.  

For example, do you know that one party during its 2012 convention held a verbal vote that required a 2/3 majority ‘yes’ vote to “put back” God into its platform and also say it recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel – and it had to do the vote three times where each time the ‘no’ votes were clearly louder than the ‘yes’ votes, showing that this ruling party denied God three times?  But then the chairman ended up overriding the ‘no’ votes, because it was embarrassing and the party's leader wanted it done no matter what to help his election. 

 

Why would they have to worry about “putting back” God into the platform and announcing they believe Jerusalem is the capital of Israel?  It is because their leader had earlier chosen to remove God from the platform and do not really believe Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, but is now only doing this for political purposes in an election year.  In other words, this political party and its leader do not really believe that God and Jerusalem as Israel’s capital have a place in government, but just need your vote to stay in power.

 

It is a sign of America becoming a Godless society and handing over the reins of government to godless leaders. 

 

These politicians who have denied God and Israel three times are the very same people who have been chosen as the leaders of America in the 2012 election.  The majority of people in America have chosen an anti-God and anti-Israel administration to lead them.  America has elected a leader whose moral values clearly oppose the God of the Bible, and he has every intention of fundamentally transforming the nation to be anti-God as well.  This, of course, is a recipe for disaster and has essentially sealed America’s fate.

 

These leaders will bring about the demise of America so quickly that many will be caught by surprise, but they should not be.  The writing has been on the wall and their intentions made clear.  America will be guilty of putting this upon her own head and the heads of future generations.  It is not unlike how many who chose the release of Barabbas over Jesus said "His blood shall be on us and our children!" (Matthew 27:25)   The fall of America will happen and the recent election has only confirmed this – the path has been laid out and made clear; America walks this plank to its own destruction:  transforming itself to be completely opposite the ideals of liberty and freedom.

 

It is a sign of declining morality and the world going backwards; those in power like to hold power and need someone to hold power over. If they can “get away” with fulfilling their own agendas, then they will. What the founding fathers tried to avoid – an overbearing government that oversteps its bounds by controlling all aspects of the lives of its citizens, seems to be a possible and even impending reality.

 

Therefore, a sure sign of the the fall of America is when its great founding principle of democratic freedom is not being adhered to, but is being ignored.  It will only get worse.  The ignoring of the will of the people is the first step towards an autocratic rule of government.  It is a slippery slope which, once crossed, leads the nation and its citizens swiftly and uncontrollably down a path of destruction. Has history not shown us that all nations with totalitarian dictatorial leadership oppress the common citizen and the destiny of the nation is ill-fated?  This is the unfortunate path America is on.    

 

For example, why is the government trying to circumvent the will of the people (the House of Representatives) by trying to sign international treaties with the United Nations?  These treaties will apply taxes among other things to America’s interests which essentially makes America beholden to external nations.  It is distributing America’s wealth and power to others, thereby weakening America. 

 

The government will do its best to circumvent the will of the people any way it can.  When it cannot do this by creating or changing national laws from within to take away the rights of the American citizen, it does it by participating in international treaties which will override America’s national laws – it will make America’s Constitution, Bill of Rights, etc. useless. 

 

An example of international treaties which will override the rights of Americans is the attempt to give control of the Internet (which was created by America) to the United Nations or some other international group; these meetings have begun at the end of 2012 and plan to turn things over by September 2015.  This is because American corporation ICANN – the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which maintains the Web addresses and domain names, etc. has a contract with the US Commerce Department that expires in September 2015 and the federal government does not want to renew the contract, but wants to transition it over to a global body intead.  America will still supposedly have a seat in this group, but where does this lead?  Has America being in the United Nations helped America or does the majority ultimately rule while picking on America and Israel?  Do we really want dictatorships and authoritarian nations like China and Russia (who already hold high positions such as in the Security Council which is an oxymoron for America’s security) influencing Internet policy and controlling the Internet (or have anything regulated by the United Nations or any global body) since they will only promote what is good for them and they have veto power?  China and Russia already have a totalitarian model of controlling the Internet in their countries and are pushing for this global control of the Internet, but do we really want to imitate them?  As bad as some say America is, it is still the best example of freedom of speech and freedom of religion in the world.  In this politically-correct and anti-Bible/Christian world we live in, how might an internationally-run Internet begin to suppress freedom of speech and freedom of religion (we all know this really means to suppress Christians and the Bible)?

 

The leaders of America are giving away the sovereignty of the nation to the world.  And in regards to handing over American sovereignty to international rule, are there really foreign military forces within America?  Why?  There might also be international laws that will eventually lead to the removal of the right to bear arms. 

 

America is being absorbed into the international body, and this is not good and makes no sense.  It is dangerous to leave the welfare and security of America in the hands of other nations, most of which hate us.

 

An example of how it makes no sense and is dangerous for America to give in to international pressure and cede its power to others is what happened recently with the new ruling of the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) which controls the air traffic in America. 

 

Remember that the attacks of September 11, 2001 were done with box-cutters.  After 12 years of banning knives and other sharp objects that can be used as weapons aboard planes, now suddenly knives up to 2 inches long are allowed on board. 

 

Why was this done? 

 

Because America bowed down to the pressure of international/other countries whose flyers are used to carrying small knives!  What?!?  So what were we doing for the past 12 years with the ban?  Are we forgetting that box-cutters (like small knives if not even smaller) were smuggled on board and used to kill and commandeer the planes on 9/11 to destroy the Twin Towers/World Trade Center?

 

They finally backed away from this, but the logic and intention was made clear. 

 

Has all sense left this nation?

 

But this is no laughing matter, but a very dangerous matter – to conform to the will of the other nations and become an “international citizen” to the detriment of the American citizen.

 

It is just one more step towards removing America and setting up one world government.  


Giving the control of the Internet to a global organization is very clearly a step toward and a sign of the one world government of the end times is soon to come.  This is because the attempt to control all communications/information is a tell-tale sign of a totalitarian government which only wants to push its own view and propaganda, and destroy any differing viewpoints.  At first, each nation will control the Internet within their own national boundaries as separate from other nations; then this will lead to control of the entire Internet all over the world by a global body.  And this is exactly what we see happening now. 


There is a push for the American national government in recent years to regulate the Internet through the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) via “net neutrality” rules and the courts have ruled against the FCC each time stating that the FCC has no such authority.  So instead, the FCC has changed the rules by calling the Internet a utility so it can be regulated as a utility.  The term “net neutrality” is an oxymoronic name to make it sound like it is for our good, but it is really so the government can get its foot into the door of Internet control and then eventually kick the whole door down.  The Internet is not a utility (like water, electricity, etc.) and cannot be compared to or treated as one.  This is simply just because the Internet is innately different and everyone knows this --- it deals with the freedom of expression, information, creative content and ownership, and 1st Amendment rights.  What utility does that?  However, if it is controlled like a utility, what can happen?  Utilities can be taxed.  And just like water access can be controlled or turned off, then what about the Internet….? The government will say it is only trying to “protect” the citizens from corporate greed by regulating the speeds, prices, etc., but we all know that if the government regulates something, then it really is setting itself up to eventually control it/the Internet and actually change it as to destroy it – there is nothing neutral about it.  Of course the government will not come right out and tell you what it really wants to do. 


But this is not all.  An additional problem to begin with is the fact that the will of the people is being circumvented – the FCC is a group of 5 unelected people which is an extension of the executive branch who vote on and therefore have broad power over the people in the area of communications.  Making this worse, there is a 300+ page proposal from the executive branch leadership that has come down as part of the considerations to vote on “net neutrality” and everything was approved and voted in by a 3-2 FCC margin on February 26, 2015 even though most in government have not seen it and therefore the citizens of America do not know what is in it and will only find out once it begins to take effect.  Why the secrecy?  Why are the citizens being kept in the dark about things that profoundly affect them?  Why are these things becoming law when they are not reviewed and voted on by the citizen’s representatives in the legislative branch?  This is just like what happened with the healthcare law – it was rammed through even though no one knew what was in it except the select few who wanted those parts unknown in the first place.  Why is healthcare and Internet regulation kept secret until it becomes law?  It is because the American citizen would not have allowed it to pass and it is the only way that the federal government can get away with giving itself unilateral power to control all healthcare and the Internet. 


And this is exactly what we are hearing about the Internet regulation just passed; there are leaks saying that the federal government through the FCC gave itself the power to regulate the content of what is on the Internet. In other words, if the federal government does not like you, it can prevent people from seeing your site and knowing what you have to say.  For example, search engines like Google wants to control what searches return by what is considered “factual” or not and no longer by popularity/links (note that Google has already manipulated what shows up on searches in the past).  But who determines what is factual?  It is the government.  But what if the government just does not want you to see what it is doing and what is really happening or will happen soon?  It has already shown it will sneak in laws without people knowing anything so it can just empower itself to control everything. It is controlling information by preventing what it does not like to show up and only leaving what it wants you to know.  It is censorship and an attack on the 1st Amendment freedom of speech; if it succeeds in doing this, than America is not really the land of the free anymore.


The Internet should not be nationalized for government to regulate or control at all, but even if it did, it would fall into the category of commerce; and it is the Congress which is representative of the people, that has power over national commerce.  We see a hint of this truth when we see why ICANN is contracted with the Commerce Department, but yet the FCC is purposely used to contradict this and take over control of the Internet.  So we see there is an attack to take over the Internet in two ways and they are both occurring at about the same time, one immediately after the other with some overlap:

 

#1 – control it nationally through central government via the FCC and not through commerce/the Congress, the legislative branch;


#2 – after laying the foundation of controlling the Internet in the US through the executive branch via the FCC, then turn it over to an international group.



In these two steps, the will and power of the American people is completely ignored and bypassed, and their freedom of speech through the Internet will be censored/taken away.  Is radio next?  And what about cable? Authoritarian government has gotten its hands on the big one – the Internet, but do not think for a second it will stop until all freedom of speech is prohibited so control comes from one way: the government will give people only what it wants people to see and hear, while all other views are silenced.


And yet another example of bypassing Congress’ role in regulating commerce is the trading bill that the executive branch is working hard to pass and enact in 2015-2016, the Trans-Pacific Partnership Free Trade Agreement (TPP) with many of the nations in the Pacific Rim.  Even many members of the President’s party are opposed to this agreement, because it will make it worse on the American workers and economy.  But it is even worse than just weakening the economy.  What this agreement does is give international corporations the power to control economic and other matters and then impose their will upon the nations they operate in.  America’s sovereignty will be in danger.  One of the things they will be able to control and dictate is, again, the Internet which involves freedom of speech and the flow of information – things the enemy wants to stamp out so we can be in the dark.  Are we seeing a recurring theme of how the Internet is being specifically targeted in many ways?  And again, against the Constitution, why is the federal government giving international corporations the power to override American laws and have the United States of America be brought under international rule?   


Notice how all branches of government are manipulating things and selectively ignoring the Constitution to get what it wants?  And certain branches are hopelessly too confused, not doing its job, are compliant, or are too impotent to prevent another branch from exercising powers it does not have in the Constitution?  Or the will of the people is ignored by invoking international treaties/agreements?  Take for example what the executive branch has done with Iran – it negotiated a nuclear treaty with Iran (a nation that has vowed to destroy Israel and the United States of America) in 2015 and purposely left out the legislative branch even though it is the legislative that has the power to do treaties.  The executive branch was able to leave out the legislative branch, because it was simply allowed to not call it a treaty even though it clearly is.  And now the executive branch has circumvented the people, legislature and Constitution altogether by bringing in multiple nations and passing it as an agreement or resolution or something supposedly other than a treaty.  


What makes this all worse is that this treaty with Iran does not do what it is supposed to do.  It is supposed to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, but it instead does the opposite and ensures that it will gain these weapons.  How so?  While the treaty states it slows Iran’s “breakout time” (the time that it takes for Iran to race to build a weapon where it cannot be stopped) by anywhere from 8-10 years, it still leaves Iran with all the equipment it needs to steadily build up its nuclear weapon program – thereby legitimizing and protecting its nuclear ambitions.  Also, this extended “breakout time” assumes Iran will not cheat which it has always done and now details of the treaty and side deals (not all revealed) tell us that United Nations nuclear inspectors will not be allowed complete freedom to come unplanned to investigate; and when they do there is a long lead-time before showing up (which allows Iran to hide/clean things up).  Iran will even have the ability to inspect certain facilities itself and give its report to the UN.  In addition to this, the involved nations will help Iran defend against cyber/computer attacks aimed to destroy its nuclear program and the international economic sanctions will automatically be lifted, giving Iran – the leading nation supporting terrorists, 150 billion dollars (the equivalent of 8 trillion dollars in America’s economy).  And even assuming Iran does not cheat, what will happen after those 8-10 years?  Iran’s “breakout time” will just be a matter of weeks, so this treaty truly only gives Iran the protected time it needs to build nuclear weapons without really worrying about anything (and it can still try to cheat).  It must be noted that the economic sanctions were working --- this is why Iran was willing to come to the negotiating table to begin with.


To show even more how badly conceived this idea really is, the treaty has never been signed by Iran so they are not bound to it.  And Iran continues to speak about death to America and Israel while continuing to build and test its ICBM (inter-continental ballistic missile) program. As indicated in its name, these types of missiles can cross continents so Iran can hit America with one – with or without a nuclear warhead on it.



All this manipulation brings to mind the saying of “who will watch the watchers”?  Or in other words, who can control the government if government is “at the top of the food chain” and makes all the rules and changes or ignores them at will?  Who can rein in and stop the government from rewriting or ignoring laws, or creating unjust new ones in order for those in power to do whatever it wants to control everything?  And this is just one reason why we must know the Bible truth of YHWH God and His son the Messiah and live it.  In addition to our righteousness and eternal salvation, we must understand it is only the Kingdom of God that will be established at Christ’s return which can and will fix all things. 


But as we said earlier: a government who you are completely dependent on and which controls everything can just as easily take it away from you.  If the Internet becomes nationally and/or then internationally owned by government, then that is yet another huge portion of people’s lives and freedom that will be taken away – and this is the very point that must not be missed, but many do not consider or take seriously: if the Antichrist must come (and we know it will and this is the end time), then there is a sequence of things that must happen to set up the conditions for his rise to world power.  The Antichrist/Beast kingdom does not just appear out of thin air, but the path will be prepared for the Antichrist.  The major thing in this preparation of his path is what we discuss in this article which is the removal of America as an obstacle whether by outright destruction or drastic change (to change America from the land of the free is to actually destroy it) – where once America defeated two would-be world dictators in World War 2, America will not be able to stop the rise of the world dictator leading to World War 3 and may actually be contributing to his rise.  The nations of this world must be leveled and then they will be too weak to prevent and/or be compliant easy prey for the Antichrist world government to come to power and take over.  And this leveling of nations begins with America first as the biggest obstacle that must be removed.  It was once the lone world power that was able to and always did stand in the way of totalitarian world rule, but America must be disabled so it cannot do this any longer.


We see this very clearly in the analogy of what will happen to the Internet.  All that is needed is to allow government the opportunity to control the Internet in any way and once it has it, it will take full advantage of it to control everything.  And make no mistake about it, the goal is to control the Internet and we must not be naïve or willingly blind to this fact.  How do we know this?  It is because the federal government has already signaled it.  It said it wants an international union of nations to control the Internet with a proposed time of September 2015.  How can this goal be done unless the Internet is first controlled at a national level, in America itself first?  China and Russia already do this, but remember, the tipping point for the rise of the Antichrist is the fall of America.  This happening to America is a big deal, because it is the land of the free and the home of the brave which stands up against and balances out totalitarian powers, but now it is heading towards being more like China and Russia.  This is a big problem for America.  So a precedent has been set in America to allow the government to control the Internet.  And it is a dangerous precedent – not just for what the American government might do to the freedoms of its own citizens, but now that the precedent is set for America, a precedent is being further established for global governance of the Internet and everything else is set for the eventual handing over of all Internet control to an international body.  It must begin first with the fall within or of the nation (specifically the United States of America) as it is removed as an obstacle, and only then can a world government entity take advantage and rise to power and take over.  


It is all about controlling people by controlling what they know and do not know (and note that in this modern age, many if not most people get their information from the Internet) – how they feel and not feel, etc.  This is why it is troubling that in January 2015 one of the largest Internet companies, Facebook releases a feature that it says is to remove hoaxes, false news, conspiracy theories, misquoting the pope, etc. by allowing anyone to flag a news item as fake/false.  However, the person who flags news does not have to provide any evidence as to whether it is really false or not, but they can flag it simply for the following reasons:  if it makes you feel uncomfortable; is against your values, religion; or for any reason at all which means it could just be because you do not like it or believe it or agree with it. If a news article receives enough flags, its appearances in people’s news feeds will be reduced and eventually disappear.  This is just letting one group of people discredit another group of people without providing any proof, but just clicking in Facebook.  Do these flaggers really know what is true or false?  No, but they are given this ability to shut down the views of others.  So in other words, the people who flag it become judge, jury and executioner even though they have absolutely no authority or accountability whatsoever. 

 

So we can see the problem with this “feature” – it is a form of censorship where freedom of speech/expression is being restricted, just because some people have their feelings hurt and do not like what they see or hear (violence and pornography are exceptions, of course). The real problem is that with the enemy Satan being the god of this world, we know how the enemy will use this feature.  It is just like what Google is trying to do – but who determines what is the truth? Sometimes truth sounds stranger than fiction and the reason is because what the enemy plans to do to mankind is truly that terrible and unimaginable and where does man get evil ideas?  From the enemy Satan. The Bible says he is a liar and murderer from the very beginning and he is the originator of sin (John 8:44). So evil people will have very evil ideas, because they get it from him, and this why though the truth might seem outrageous and too terrible to think could happen in a civil society today, it is still the truth.  Since Satan exists, then there will be demonic ideas and plans.  So what is true will be considered “fake” by many, but this does not mean it is not true – it just means most people refuse to see or cannot see the truth or are not able to process it.  What the enemy is trying to do is to shut down the ability for people to be warned of what is to come and keep everyone distracted and blind; it makes it easier for him to take total control and his ultimate goal is to shut down Bible truth and access to eternal salvation.  This “feature” is absolutely what people do NOT need in these end times – we need all the information we can get (including God’s truth and what He has to say about prophetic events) and not less information by having people calling what might be true fake and throwing it away. Note also that Facebook was caught recently doing psychological testing to almost a million people to see if their emotions can be manipulated.  We must not forget that one of the first things the current U.S. President did when he came into office was to talk with the leaders of the largest computer technology companies – and Facebook was one of them.  Is this the reason why these large Internet companies are quiet about what is going to happen with the Internet with the government nationalizing and controlling it?  Are these companies being used and abused by the government?


This power grab to seize control of the Internet is exactly what we would expect from Satan in his quest to set up one world government.  It is not only complete control he seeks, but he wants the Bible truth to be destroyed at all costs, and not allowed to be told and spread throughout the world (and again, let us be reminded that not only Bible information, but in this modern age many if not most information of any kind comes through the Internet).  Knowledge is power and Bible truth is power over the enemy.  So control of all communication is at the top of the list to remove America and establish the end times world government.

 

We must remember this:  control is the opposite of freedom.  Are we seeing the American government using supposed fear and circumstances to take away our freedoms little by little and thereby getting more and more control? 

And speaking of central governments trying to take control by legislation against the will of the people to remove our freedoms – why is an RFID microchip implant program put into the recent 2000+ page healthcare bill that was jammed through without anyone really knowing what was in it?  Does everyone even know this is in there?  Why is this not made public knowledge?  Are there plans to make everyone get a biometric national ID card? 

And speaking of things made into law without anyone’s knowledge: again, why is the executive branch continually ignoring the Constitution and bypassing the legislative branch and issuing decrees that become law?  And worse, what sad state is the country in when the executive branch is allowed to do whatever it wants without anyone being able to stop it?  For instance, did you know that the Iran nuclear negotiations signed in November 2013 was done completely without the involvement of the Congress and Senate, and Defense and Security agencies?  It was being worked on secretly for months and nobody knew it; then one weekend it is signed and becomes news to everyone.  And then, of course, the 2015 treaty bypassed everyone completely just because the executive branch called it an agreement instead of a treaty.

And there is yet an even worse example of the executive branch showing it does not care about the will of the people but only itself by bypassing the legislative branch – who are representatives of the people, and exerting its own growing imperial power.  In 2014 the executive branch ignored two governmental standards: one – to not negotiate with terrorists; two – to notify Congress of any plans it has at least 30 days in advance.  What the executive branch did on its own was secretly negotiate with terrorists to exchange one captured American soldier for 5 top-level Taliban leaders in custody --- and then took action on this exchange by itself without any input from any other part of the government.  Additionally, this was done knowing that a very high percentage of released prisoners return to terrorism which has as its goal the destruction of America; America’s leader plans to withdraw all American forces from Afghanistan in two years which is where the Taliban was ousted from; America’s leader plans to free all imprisoned terrorists in the same two-year time period; and now all Americans – not just soldiers, have a “price on their head”, because the precedent has been set that taking American hostages will ensure that terrorist demands will be met.  

 

In doing these things, the leader of the American executive branch, the President, has willingly and openly defied and broken the two highest commissions given to him which he has sworn to do: one – faithfully uphold and execute the laws of the land; two – ensure the security of and protect the citizens of America.



Another example of the dysfunction and imbalance in the U.S. federal government with an overreaching executive branch that bypasses the legislature and will of the people are the abusive use of executive orders and the many federal offices and agencies it controls, such as the presidentially appointed “czars”; the Department of Justice; the Internal Revenue Service (IRS); EPA (Environmental Protection Agency); etc.  These offices and agencies exercise expansive and very impactful powers which are binding as if they were law, but this authority was not created through the legislative branch.  

 

The U.S. federal government is not operating according to the tenets set forth by the nation’s founding fathers.  Indeed, the tyrannical rule of the executive branch combined with the very weak and often compliant legislative branch and the judicial branch which is also overreaching in its authority, is the exact opposite of what the founders wanted and tried their best to avoid.  America was founded on a decentralized government with the power distributed to the people, not the power centralized in a select one or few in government, a dictatorship or ruling oligarchy.  America was founded on the concepts of freedom, not control and the will of the people over the will of one or a few leaders.  Remember, this is precisely why the pilgrims came to America: for freedom from the tyranny of a king.   Therefore, this behavior in the federal government and all that we have discussed in this section which are in direct opposition to, and contradict and conflict with, the founding documents and fathers of the nation are a sure-fire sign that America is in the middle of a great decline and its complete change/fall is imminent.


The absence of common sense and the nonsensical “political correctness” that has gripped the nation is also a sign of the decline in American society as a whole. It guides the leaders and even many citizens. Unfortunately, this “political correctness” that has gripped America is a stranglehold that can very well destroy the nation.

The government is literally handing over the nation’s sovereignty to others.  This appears to be done as part of a globalist agenda as well as pandering to people groups in order to get their votes and remain in power.  But people must be warned:  it looks like you may be benefiting now, but your time will come – totalitarian rule always begins small and “with someone else”, but its intention is to control all, and this means you, too. By then it is too late, because anyone who could have stopped it cannot do so now, and there is no one left.  This also applies to the “us versus them” warfare between citizens of the country – everyone will ultimately lose out when freedoms are completely taken away (also see 'Military Decline' section below).

 

 

Perhaps the best example of the dysfunction and ever-downward spiral of the federal government is found in a recent despotic act of the President, who is the head of the executive branch whose solemn Bible-sworn duty to uphold and execute the laws of the land was discarded as yesterday's trash.  Despite saying over 20 times in his tenure as President that he was not an emperor, and did not have the authority and cannot bypass the legislative branch --- the Senate and House of Representatives, to just legalize millions of illegal immigrants, he did just that in November 2014.  

The President demolished the Constitution and the separation of powers and broke the law instead of executing the law.  As he correctly said, he did not have the Constitutional right/authority to do it, but yet he went ahead and bypassed the legislative branch and the will of the people by issuing an executive order to grant amnesty or a pardon to millions of illegal immigrants, who themselves broke American law through bypassing the legal process to gain American citizenship.  This is nothing against the illegal immigrants as most are good people, but it is about what is the will of the people, being lawful and upholding the Constitution, and not putting even more burden upon a nation that is already overburdened with many serious and dangerous problems.  

So though he denies he is one, he surely is behaving as an emperor, because what precedent does this set going forward?  What other acts will he (or any future President) do according to his own whim and all by himself, even though the executive branch does not have the Constitutional right to create laws, but supposedly only execute them?  What does this do to the separation of powers if Congress can be ignored whenever the executive branch thinks it is expedient and easy to do so?

But let us be frank and say it simply: the Constitution is not the problem.  The problem is with the people - the politicians and justices in government.  It is not only the executive branch that is the problem, but also the legislative and judicial branches.  The legislature and courts, because of their own ideologies and weaknesses, have allowed a king/emperor to destroy the Constitution and rule in America which is what the founding fathers tried their best to prevent from happening. 

America was founded in freedom for freedom, from the oppression of the one over the many.  America is to represent the will of the people and not of the one or a few lording over the people.  What is happening in the American government is proof that though the law may be good, it will mean absolutely nothing if the people (most of them) put in charge over the law are corrupt, weak or ungodly, and will or cannot do what they are righteously supposedly to do.  For, after all, the hearts of men are deceitful and desperately wicked above all things (Jeremiah 17:9). 

And what social impact will this brazen act of lawlessness have upon the American citizen who has to bear witness to this - the destruction of the Constitution, the government and the foundation of the law?  If the leader of the nation can just break the law and decide to ignore the law whenever he sees fit (even though his job is to uphold the law), what example does this set for the people of the nation, whether the law-abiding citizen or not?  Nothing good can come from this, because it contributes greatly to the decline of American society which does not need any help and is declining very quickly and sharply on its own.

 

None of this is being written to be “political” or siding with one side or the other.  The Bible makes it clear it does not matter what side your political views lie, but the Antichrist will come and destroy everything in its path, whoever it is.  This is based on being alert and watching the signs of the times.  It is a warning that we must all have our spiritual house in order to prepare for the bad times to come.  God must come first.  We must stand tall for God in Christ.  Everything else is second priority.

 

 

 

Economic decline

The economic problems, though global in scope, are hitting America especially hard which is understandable since it is caused largely by the collapse of the USA housing market. Unemployment is high (higher than what the government tells you, because they are deliberately aiming low and do not account for accumulated numbers through time, people giving up searching, people working far less than they need to/want to, etc.).  Foreclosed homes are everywhere and increasing in numbers. People have lost a huge portion of their savings and investments.  Medicare is in peril and the money all wage earners put into Social Security will completely disappear and not be paid back out in a matter of several years.  But yet globalization continues and the national debt has increased astronomically with more government programs/projects. America’s economy is faltering as its wealth is redistributed to other countries.

 

When a nation gives away its sovereignty to others, it is also giving away its jobs to others; this furthers the demise of the economy as there is more competition for jobs with others that should not rightfully be in the job market in the first place.  It is just another example of reducing America so it is equally nothing and the easier for the globalist Beast kingdom to rise to power.

Why is the American government calling the bailout of GM and Chrysler a success when this is not really true: taxpayer money was used, the national debt is increased and the government now has a controlling stake in these entities?  Worse, why is the government’s self-proclamation of this “success” being used by it to plan more government takeovers of other industries?  It is as if the government is preparing/setting up the people for a takeover of the economy when the expected next economic disaster occurs which it has ensured would happen soon because of its economic policies.  Meanwhile, it is trying to destroy the coal and other industries that it disagrees with. 

It is clearly trying to control the economy – taking over what it can and getting rid of others.  Do we really want government to control private industry and who “wins” and who “loses”?  This is centralization of power in the hands of the one (the government) and not in the hands of the people – it is completely opposite of the Constitution ideals of democracy and government “of the people, by the people, for the people”.  When we do this, we are becoming more like totalitarian China and Russia.  And as we said earlier, the Internet is the next target to be centralized.

Many nations look to America's economy as the leader for guidance, and follow it as indicators of what they should do as well.  Therefore, in another way we can see where America's decline in this crucial segment of national and global affairs will ultimately indicate and lead to the downward spiral of the world's economy which more easily brings about a push for a "global government" and the rise of the Beast.

And we must not forget that one particular totalitarian nation, China, holds most of America’s debt and wealth. If this nation is ever given a reason to pull out its investments in the USA, then the economy of America will collapse. It is actually a vicious cycle: the downward spiral of US economic policy with its excessive government spending and rewarding these nations while America loses out in a one-sided economic relationship, only guarantees that these same nations will withdraw from “doing business” with America which will lead to the collapse. In other words, America is killing itself.  

 

The Federal Reserve just keeps printing more to supposedly stimulate the economy while ignoring the true problem of unsustainable debt. Short-term stimulus plans do nothing except hide the real problem and forestall the inevitable collapse of the economy if true measures are not undertaken to address the real problem. Printing more money while government continues to spend spells doom for the economy and the nation. 

The United States of America is past the point of no return with the size of its debt that can never be repaid, and what has happened to Greece seems imminent.  The Bible declares that a godly nation should not be a borrower, because the borrower is the slave to the lender, and will be ruled over:

 

Deuteronomy 15:

6    For YAHWEH your God will bless you, as he promised you: and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow; and you shall rule over many nations, but they shall not rule over you.    (WEB)

 

Proverbs 22:

7   The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower becomes the lender's slave.   (NASB)

 

 

It should be noted that the Bible also says a wicked nation borrows but does not pay back:

 

Psalm 37:

21  The wicked borrows and does not repay, But the righteous shows mercy and gives    (NKJV)

 

 

This is a profound indicator of what the state of America was, now is, and will be in the very near future.  America is rapidly decaying from within and descending into wickedness.  Its economy is not only a part of this, but also a clear indicator of where the nation is at, because it has only been in the very recent years that our debt has increased so drastically that it can never be paid back. 

 

The Bible is showing us that to continue to borrow and be in debt which can never be repaid is a reflection of a wicked nation that will be enslaved. 

 

And so we do not miss the importance of what the Bible is saying and how it reveals the fact that America is right now in 2012 at a crossroads and at the edge of a cliff, a pivotal point to either turn back or proceed to descend into wickedness: 

 

According to the Bible, if America tries to get rid of its debt and actually pay back what it owes, than America would not be regarded as wicked.  However, if America willingly proceeds to borrow and be in debt when it knows it can never repay, then America would be considered a wicked nation.

 

As the nations of the world are the creditors of America, this means America is indebted to, and is a slave to, the world.  America is being set up by the globalist agenda to be enslaved by the one world government Antichrist Beast kingdom that is rising quickly above the horizon.  

 

 

Are the American and global economic problems just the “right crisis” that those who want a one world government need to seize power?  And again, are these problems probably just created by them so they can get this power?  Consider what is happening elsewhere such as in Greece.  With the fall of the American economy that will happen soon, will rioting and mass chaos occur, further destroying the social structure and giving the government the excuse it needs to step in to seize and increase their power by martial law?  In the words of the government, they cannot let the occurrence of a disaster go to waste without taking advantage of it to further their agenda and power. 

 

Then we need to add to this one of the most significant indicators that America’s fall will precede the coming of the Beast power: the demise of the American dollar is imminent – most notably with the talk recently of a new world currency on the horizon.  In fact, a group of nations (yes, one of them was China, the same nation that takes much of America’s wealth in imported goods) recently met secretly to discuss replacing the American dollar (they did not invite America to attend).  The big jumps in the price of gold over the last few years is an indicator of the weakness of the dollar and how close it is to being obsolete. 

In fact, is China engaging in unbalanced trade (which America does nothing about, but joyfully and blindly participates in), manipulating its currency and buying up all the gold in the world to not just make itself a super-power, but specifically to destroy America and dethrone the dollar as the world currency?  Actually, in 2014 China is not hiding the fact that it plans to replace the American dollar with a new world currency of its own.


The Bible foretells that the Beast will control the world economy, and again, the fall of America (by the demise of the America dollar) must happen first:

Revelation 13:

16   He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,

17   and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18   Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man:

     His number is 666.   (NKJV)


 

The massive debt that keeps on increasing and can never be repaid will make the creditors find the American dollar no longer useful and possibly pull out their funds, therefore giving certain nations an excuse to work behind closed doors to undermine and replace the dollar as mentioned before.  Remember that it was only in 2011 when a major credit rating institution lowered America’s credit rating from the perfect mark – it was the first time in the history of the nation this has happened, and it is a sign of the times for America that time is short.  When the time is short for America, then the time is short until the Lord Jesus returns.

It is the American government continuing to spend and increase its debt to unsustainable levels that prompts the printing of more money.

The Federal Reserve printing more money just makes it easier and faster to usher in the fall of the American dollar, which leads to the creation of this new world currency that the Beast will use. For what does supply and demand tell us? If we keep adding more money into the system, it becomes weaker, more diluted. The money loses value and is worth less. Hyper-inflation follows.  This only makes the current American recession even worse. Eventually, the dollar will be worthless with a total collapse such as a depression, and then the Beast power is just around the corner.   The standard of the American dollar will be replaced by a new global standard, setting up for the rise of the Beast.

The recession we have now is only a foretaste of what is to come.  Many professionals in the economic and financial systems agree that the worst may still come for America.  The Bible, on the other hand, says it WILL come.  Why?  It is because, again, only when America is out of the way – in this case the American dollar, will the end times Beast power be able to rise to power.

We must never forget the lessons of history that nations primarily fall due to their decline in culture and financial/economic systems.

And not so strangely since we know Satan needs to destroy America first, it appears that the American government is behaving in a way that ensures the economy will get worse, setting up an economic collapse that will result in total chaos and martial law to be established.

We must remember the lesson of Hitler’s Germany and his Nationalist Socialist (Nazi) party. 

After World War I and the Great Depression Germany was in a huge economic mess.  The people were desperately looking for a leader to get them out of this trouble and they chose Hitler.  He seemed okay at first, but things got worse as little by little the society was changing and freedoms were being eroded.  It is believed by most historians that the Reichstag fire was purposely staged by Hitler to use it as an excuse to seize more power for himself while removing more power and rights from the people.  This is exactly what he did and we know what happened after that (he manipulated and distracted the entire nation and led it into war, because he simultaneously used the bad economy as an excuse to build up for war).


America is set up and heading straight on toward a similar economic disaster.  The people will be set up to look for a “savior” to get them out of this mess.  But this leader will be just like any other totalitarian leader: you give him an inch and he will take a mile.  This leader will use the economic disaster (and any other disaster because “it must not go to waste”) to seize, retain and increase his power.  Meanwhile, the citizens of the land will be reduced to nothing but fodder whose lives are at the complete whim of this newfound “king” – what America has always tried to avoid is unavoidable.   And war, whether as an aggressor or a victim (or both?), is likely to follow.


The lessons of history show us that the complete destruction of a nation’s economy will create total chaos and society will break down – and this breakdown in the economy and the social order will lead to the creation of a totalitarian regime.  This is because those who wish to gain total power over the masses either have manipulated things to create the disaster or are opportunists ever waiting to take advantage to seize power – or both.  This is what will happen to America and its economic collapse is manufactured so America will be transformed to a totalitarian state, and thereby removed as an obstacle for one world government, because now it will be part of it.

 

The economic collapse is coming and its beginnings can be as soon as 2015, so we must be prepared spiritually and know our God and His Messiah above all things.


Note #1: Currently the Chinese economy is undergoing some upheaval as well, so the same applies to China about a nation using a bad economy as an excuse to take total control and lead to war.


Note #2:  Some examples of other disasters besides the economy that will cause the same rise of overbearing dictatorial government are: all-out war; power grids are down; natural disasters; terrorist attacks on the water and food supply, etc.  As you can see, any disaster can cut off water and food supply, and their unavailability can very well quickly put you under the mercy of the government “savior”.  It should be understood that shortage of the water and food supplies is just a different way to view the economy:  no money gets no food; food and water is actually more valuable than money; with no food (and water) you can do nothing.   The lack of food and water is really the other side of the coin of what an economic (or any) disaster is.  So when you think about an impending economic (or any) disaster, you must consider food and water for you and your family.  Indeed, is the federal government stockpiling survival kits, food, etc. for itself to prepare for an economic meltdown it is expecting to happen very soon?

 

You must be prepared and strengthened spiritually NOW, for all the reasons given in this article and more, because it is the most important thing.  Advanced warning of problems to come is just to give you more time and motivation (there is real urgency) to be spiritually strong and get your spiritual house in order immediately, instead of panicking when things go wrong.  So it is very important to please also read the other articles on this site to return to the faith once for all delivered to the saints which is the number one priority for you and your family:

 

Jude 1:

3    Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.    (NKJV)

 

 


Military/security decline

 

The United States military is also faltering as the government is: cutting funds; has rules of engagement that are both dangerous to its troops and any actual realization of any success; withdrawing from the world stage as the leader; entering into missile and other reduction programs that will leave America and the world more vulnerable, because America’s nuclear/military capabilities also protects her allies and is a deterrent to would-be conquerors (while all other countries are strengthening their militaries – another example of the enemy’s “leveling” of all nations and his goal to destroy America first).  While American leadership is looking to get rid of its nuclear arsenal, it is simultaneously not aggressively pursuing programs to help detect and deter nuclear attacks on American soil or over American airspace.

Is it not also strange and worrisome that America decides to cut its military greatly – to pre-World War 2 levels, at this present time which can be said to be the closest we have ever been to World War 3?  Russia’s aggression towards the Crimea and Ukraine regions at virtually the same time U.S. forces will be cut seems to poke fun at and expose the irony and ill-conceived nature of this idea to reduce the military so drastically.  Meanwhile, other nations are building their militaries and testing, flexing their strength and displaying tendencies towards war and conquering (China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, etc.).


In fact, recently Russia has told the world it is rebuilding its nuclear arsenal and will use nuclear weapons for supposedly defensive “deterrence” purposes, but we know it is a thinly veiled threat to use nuclear weapons offensively – especially troubling since they are trying to take Ukraine and such a threat is clearly targeted also at those who would try to stop Russia from doing so.  China and North Korea has also threatened to start Armageddon, talking about how far their nuclear missiles can reach into American soil. 


The military is also getting mixed signals from leaders creating lack of morale; sending mixed signals to our “ally” Israel; not doing enough to prevent “cyber” warfare with Chinese and other hackers getting into high-level security systems with ease; having repeated leaks of confidential security information; shutting down much of NASA’s programs including the shuttle program (the only way an American can get on a shuttle is to pay another nation to get on theirs or visit the shuttle tourist trap in New York, much of the technology we have that is used to protect us come from NASA technology), etc.

Political correctness has also handcuffed the military as it seems the government is half-heartedly trying to protect the populace since the welfare of criminals and aggressors appear to override the welfare of the citizen.

The massive cuts in the military and the government seemingly wanting America’s armed forces to be weak and fall behind in power and technology to other nations has greatly diminished America’s ability to defend its citizens. 

 

America is no longer able to keep up with China and Russia, and its borders are completely open to any invasion.  Did you know in the summer of 2012 that a Russian nuclear-powered submarine with long range missiles was in the Gulf of Mexico?  It was only detected when it left.  Russian submarines were also in American waters a few years back.  Russian military planes have been flying through American airspace.  Also do not forget all the incidents with Chinese submarines in the last few years also being able to sneak up on the American Navy. 

 

It seems that China and Russia will play a major role in making sure that America will have its hands full and chaos reigns. Of course, their ability to do so is assisted by the American government lack of interest in keeping its military the elite and best force in the world as it once was.  With this force, America was once able to keep peace in the world, but now with the halls of power in America destroying itself from within, America is destined to be removed as the enemy’s obstacle – exactly as he planned. 


The Russian threat to America is especially noteworthy, because they have been an opponent of America for decades after World War II (communism/totalitarianism vs. capitalism/democracy in “the Cold War”), supports Iran and the American leader made curious statements to Russian leadership recently.  These statements were recorded, because he was unaware their microphones were still open/live.  The American leader said he needed "more space" and he would get more space after he was re-elected. 


What does "more space" mean after re-election?  It can only mean that he can do more of whatever he wants to do and not what the American people want, because he no longer has to pander to them to get their votes.

 

And what was the topic that he needed "more space"?  It was a missile defense system; America and its allies want it, but Russia does not. 

 

What does more space mean except to compromise toward and give in to Russia's wishes?  The American leadership has already made it known that they are anti-military, wanting to drastically reduce everything pertaining to the military, while Russia and China are building up their militaries at break-neck speed (even when they say they are not or are supposed to be reducing as well).

 

That is the only meaning when we look at it objectively and it will make America and its allies less secure, weaker, more defenseless --- and disaster will surely follow.

 

Is America really going to trust other nations that clearly display not only a disrespect for human rights, but also a very thinly veiled animosity and latent aggression toward America, and when given the chance, they will inflict this aggression upon America without mercy?  America is, intentional or not, opening itself up --- giving the chance, to other nations to remove America as an obstacle to one world government.  But this is the enemy's plan, so it is expected.


 

Stated another way:  America will first destroy itself by becoming its own worst enemy (like a totalitarian nation), and only then will it be too weak and enable destruction from outside forces.  These two things will happen almost at the same time, but America's swift and steep descent into dictatorship-like government comes first and will use international affairs and war-time emergency/disaster as further excuse to increase and maintain absolute power over its citizens – and become a complete totalitarian dictatorship. 


A possible nuclear or other major attack by external forces such as from China and Russia (or terrorists, or together witht them) will come in the next few years and this war will be used by the American government to become a full-fledged dictatorship – to bring in, and become part of, a one world government.  Needless to say, such a war will usher in or magnify other disasters, such as total economic and social decline/disorder.


Let us not forget that North Korea can be considered a proxy of China just as Iran and Syria can be considered proxies of Russia, so attacks from these smaller nations are really the same thing.  Also, with the current situation in Iraq with terrorist forces attempting to conquer the nation, America can see an attack from Iraq as well.  Note: Iran’s trying to manipulate things and take control in the entire Middle East region (like in Iraq) is a reason we can see Iran as an aggressor with no need for Russian involvement.



And speaking of a major attack on American soil, has anyone noticed that in recent years the American government and those with power have been building vast networks of shelters/bunkers in the mountains and underground as if in preparation for such a war?

 

One might say it is a good idea to do so anyway, just in case, like in the days of the Cold War with Russia.  However, there is much more urgency now and circumstances are quite different now in America. 

 

During the Cold War, America built and maintained the most powerful military in the world to defend itself and its allies, and also act as a deterrent to nuclear war, and it had succeeded in preventing catastrophic war.  Now, it seems America is dead-set to reduce its military (including especially the nuclear deterrent) to weakling status – so much so, that it cannot defend itself, much less its allies.  In other words, America now appears to try and do the opposite, and undo its success in preventing disaster and world war.

 

This is extremely worrisome now in our times, because any person who is honest with themselves can see the Bible prophecy of a one world government and leader to be established in the end days is coming to pass, and it begins with the demise of America from what it once was which is an absolute requirement for the Antichrist to come to power.  And again, we must be honest with ourselves, since we are seeing the dismantling of America right before our eyes.

 

In fact, as frightening as it is sounds, it seems that America’s actions are actually leaning toward bringing about or welcoming such a war on its soil, and the fall of America.  It is as if it was planned to happen first, in order for a one world government to rise.  This brings to bear the shelter/bunker preparations as it relates to a chilling prophecy in the Bible; the leaders and mighty men will be hiding in such places in the end times:

 

Revelation 6:

12    I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.

13    And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.

14    Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.

15    And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man,

          hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains,

16    and said to the mountains and rocks,

         "Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!

17    For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?"    (NKJV)

 

 

And so, America will fall.

 

And we know what happens when the peace-keeping force such as the police is no longer around.  Absolute chaos as the criminals rule the streets. The Beast one world government will succeed in removing America and proceed in its plan to take the world.  Everything is planned to happen this way; in America first and then the world.

 

All these things are getting worse and will continue to do so as it seems the country’s leaders and maybe even the country as a whole, is steering further and further away from the God who has blessed the nation. It should also be noted that the Bible clearly states those who bless Israel will also be blessed. The Bible also states that Israel will be surrounded by the nations of the world in the end times.

 

It sounds like America will not be an ally of Israel by that time.


With the current American leadership speaking out of place about Israel dividing the land and borders without first consulting with Israel (even though they were to meet the very next day), refusing to meet with Israel’s prime minister when he reaches out to America and treating Israel with disrespect and almost disdain, we know America is already no longer an ally.  The leadership may say it is an ally in words, but it does not mean it in the heart and therefore not in deeds.  America today in 2015 treats Israel – its most loyal ally maybe besides Britain and the only democratic and free nation in the Middle East, almost worse than it does an enemy.  Oddly, in the last few years the United States of America has made it quite clear that it considers itself and Israel as its biggest enemies.  It says that Israel is the problem, but it is not and it says America itself is a problem in the world, but it is not; the truth of the matter is that its recent actions are what make America a problem today and in the future which will affect Israel and the world.


Making all of this even worse, why does America’s federal government appear to be more “afraid” and more combative against its own citizens: falsely calling its citizens terrorists or extremists just because it does not like them and their exercising of their 1st Amendment rights of freedom of speech/expression which disagree with what the government thinks or believes, or what it wants people to know?  American citizens have a right to freedom of speech and religion to speak the truth and tell people what is happening in the world around them, and all people have the freedom to think for themselves. The control of thought and information is the first sign of totalitarianism, and is the first thing required to control the population.  It is a partner with propaganda.  Also, why is there instituting of martial laws that will give the government unprecedented power?  


And though they deny the evidence of this: why is the U.S. military being more and more hostile to Christianity and taught (and trained in exercises) that Christians and conservatives are like enemies of the state, likened to terrorists (“domestic terrorists”) and even worse than real terrorists? At the same time, why is Christianity systematically being attacked and removed from the military?  The removal of Christianity from the military and the focus on labeling Christians domestic terrorists comes from the top leadership in the nation and it shows where we might be heading toward in the near future.  It is a “light” persecution now, but is full-fledged persecution against Christians coming soon?  It seems things are being set up for it which is just another reason why Christians are being purged from the military.  If there ever will come outright persecution against Christians, it would be “more effective” if the military did not have Christians to sympathize with those they are persecuting (especially when combined with foreign troops overseeing Americans); Christians would fully be considered enemies of the state/military and handled with absolutely no mercy at all.  And why are police forces all over America being militarized?  Also, why is there instituting of martial laws that will give the government unprecedented power?  The Bible tells us that believers will be persecuted; they will be chased, killed and brought before the courts, etc.


In addition to disarming the defenses of America by weakening its military, we must also wonder: why does the U.S. federal government (and certain state governments as well) want so much to take away guns and further disarm America by removing the American civilians' Constitutional right to bear arms?  The 2nd Amendment of the Constitution gives Americans the right to own guns to defend themselves against enemies both foreign and domestic.  And we know what happens when law-abiding citizens do not have guns to defend themselves – then only lawbreakers will have the guns, and they will use them to destroy, control and enslave the innocent and defenseless.

 

Are there really concentration/internment camps in America that are waiting to be used against the citizen (for detaining or worse) for any governmental reason during planned martial law? Is there even training of troops to attack civilians should “civil unrest” or “civil war” – or any reason, occurs?  Why are the national leaders setting everyone against one another and completely shredding the Constitution in defiance of the people’s will as if to purposely incite civil unrest or even civil war?  All this indicates it is as if America is being set up for the government to come against its own citizens.  And this is not speculation – the military is training in realistic simulations how to go door-to-door into homes to perform arrests/search and seizure and how to move and detain citizens in internment camps.  The military is also engaging in training in urban areas (town or city) where they actually simulate deployment into the urban area and fight with weapons.  These types of exercises have been occurring a lot the last couple of years and seem to indicate that the federal government is indeed practicing and getting ready to come against its own citizens.

 

As an example of creating civil unrest that can lead to the federal government stepping in with martial law, take what has been happening recently with the illegal immigration crisis in 2014.  The federal government does not enforce America’s immigration laws and are responsible for sending the message that any illegal immigrants that come into the country can stay and will not be deported (specifically targeted at those coming through the Mexican border from Mexico, Central America, etc.).  And it is not just inviting and letting them in, but actually transporting them all over the country after they have entered.  This influx of tens of thousands (maybe over 100,000 and climbing) illegal immigrants have placed a burden on the cities and states, and some have blocked these illegal immigrants from being detained and moved to their city. Is this type of scenario where a city or state is forced to exercise its own rights to uphold the law where the national government will not, just escalate and be the excuse for an oppressive federal government to use martial law just so that a planned autocratic government can take total control?  The federal government keeps on exerting more and more unconstitutional power and pushing, goading its citizens to do something that will give it a reason to use a heavy hand.


Is all this partially related to what was discussed at the end of the previous section about how the shortage of water and food is the flip side of the coin for ALL disasters that can be used against the people to remove their freedoms, oppress them and keep them under control?  Is the government stockpiling food as if it knows that a disaster is coming soon and preparing for it?


And on the topic of illegal immigration, let us not ignore that it is indeed a military/security concern.  There is no border that is being protected and enemies, such as terrorists and hostile nations, can take advantage of this open border to enter and inflict great harm to Americans.  In addition to terrorists just running across the border, is it true that plans have already been made for terrorists to build secret tunnels into America from Mexico similar to what we saw Hamas do in Israel (note that a mysterious tunnel was just discovered in Toronto, Canada near York University and Rexall Center, one of the sites for the 2015 Pan American games in July)?  Are terrorists working together with Mexican drug cartels to secretly infiltrate America to kill and destroy, and create chaos? 


Also, the lawful immigration process includes security and health checks so we know exactly who it is that is coming in, and whether they pose a security (criminal, enemy combatant/terrorist, etc.) or health (communicable diseases, etc.) hazard.  If they do, the correct and lawful immigration process turns away these security and health threats. However, these critical checks, and therefore the well-being of American citizens, are ignored when American national leadership keeps on letting the borders be porous and allowing illegal immigration to run rampant. With this illegal immigration into America and the transporting of them all throughout the states, it is therefore no surprise that we see at the same time the sudden outbreak of diseases such as enterovirus-d68.


It is not a question of being sympathetic or not, because most illegal immigrants are probably good people, but it is a question of being lawful, living by the rule of law and a nation not descending into complete lawlessness.  It is also about knowing that it is an existential threat for any nation to become lawless, be open to enemy and health dangers, have the infrastructure (education, healthcare, jobs, economy, etc.) be over-burdened to non-existence, etc.  Many who support illegal immigration fail to realize any of this, much less the fact that America already has problems supporting even their own citizens.  They fail to realize if America is having trouble even now taking care of its own citizens, how is it going to be good for America’s citizens and infrastructure when they will be burdened even more?  Instead, these supporters ignore the rule of law and those immigrants who try to enter into America the correct lawful way. 


This also falls into the political decline section, but it must be mentioned that since the executive branch bypassed the legislative branch and all by itself legalized (“grants amnesty to”) the millions of illegal aliens already here, then the executive branch has itself broken the law and is engaged in illegal activity, completely ignoring the Constitution and acting with powers it has seized for itself that are not Constitutional.  Actually, as we mentioned earlier, the executive branch has already broken the law regarding illegal immigration: it has refused to uphold its own immigration laws and instead invites illegals in to break American laws, and has even transported the illegal aliens all over America, putting citizens at risk of health and other issues, like getting diseases imported in from other countries and a lot of crime is done by illegals (note:  why are violent illegal immigrants being released from prison in America?).  If the executive branch can legalize lawbreakers with a stroke of the pen, then proves to Americans everywhere that the federal government is the chief lawbreaker, and it is a sign of the entire nation descending into lawlessness and anarchy, undoing the strong threads that the founding fathers have established to keep American society from coming apart at the seams.


We must also note that allowing hundreds of thousands of immigrants each year to come in “legally” without any serious or no background checks or follow-through is also welcoming disaster, because many terrorists can come into the America this way (just like they did before the 9/11 terrorist attacks).  This has been made much worse, because with the current Middle East unrest, many people from the impacted countries are coming into America as refugees and a large percentage of them are young men and not women and children.  Many of these men are not really suffering persecution, but are coming for economic or other reasons.  The problem with this is that ISIS has already said they will use any refugee situation to use it as a cover to send its terrorists among the refugees into America and all over the world as part of its plan to destroy America and take everything over.  So this is one of the other reasons some of these refugees have for coming here. The US Defense Department also confirmed that there will be terrorists among the people coming in, but yet America is ready to accept at least 200,000 mostly young men in the next couple of years with barely any or no background checks. 

 

We must also keep in mind that radical Islam is able to influence people here in America to “join” their cause even now, so how many of those 200,000+ over there are even more easily swayed to join its cause or are already on their side?  Why would America ignore the threat of ISIS where ISIS is telling America exactly what it will do? Why would America ignore the warnings of its own Defense Department and just allow these people to come in?   It is like national suicide.  Why bring in terrorists who exist to kill innocent civilians just because they do not believe in their god?  Just look at what is happening in Europe such as in France and Germany; there is chaos over there as murder and sexual abuse are done by these “refugees”.  European countries such as Britain already have “no-go” zones where enclaves of Muslims live under sharia law separate from the law of the land.  Is this violence and sharia law coming to America?  Why are America’s leaders not putting in the proper measures and safeguards to keep the citizens of the nation safe – which is the #1 priority of the President and other leaders of the United States of America according to the Constitution.



And in regards to preventing health threats from coming into the United States of America, what is America doing regarding the ebola virus entering in?  The ebola virus is running rampant in West Africa and it is one of the deadliest and most contagious diseases that exist with a rapid mutation rate.  Well more than half (60-90%) of the people who contract it will die from it.  It is a serious threat to the safety of American citizens.  So why is the federal government and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) doing nothing to prevent infected people overseas from coming into the country (it actually took some risk in bringing infected American citizens into the country for treatment, such as Dr. Kent Brantly)?  Why are there no notifications, procedures and barriers in place to prevent this deadly contagious disease from coming in?  Why does it seem that only half-measures are being taken to prevent it from coming and once on American soil, from spreading? 

 

Let us be reminded that among other things, the rise of pestilence is one of the signs of end time prophecy that will be fulfilled shortly preceding the return of the Lord Jesus.  In response to His disciples asking about when He will return, this is part of what Messiah said:

 

Matthew 24:

6    And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7    For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.

8    All these are the beginning of sorrows.    (NKJV)

 

 

The presence of pestilence is therefore not only a sign of the end times in itself, but pestilence coming upon the world scene with extensive American involvement is also a strong indicator that it will signify the fall of America which precedes the rise of the Antichrist.

 

Other nations have shut down their borders and suspended visas to prevent the spread of the disease, but America does the opposite.  Instead of preventing the disease from occurring in America using restrictions on travel from the infected areas and stoppage of visas, etc. or quarantining high-risk individuals overseas before coming, the federal government and CDC does nothing.  The federal government and CDC are content in allowing infected persons to come in.   When there are ways to prevent it from coming in, but you instead choose not to do so, then you are purposely letting it in.  There is an arrogance or attitude that almost dares and allows the disease to come, and if it does come, assume it will be controlled anyway (despite the government doing nothing and the CDC consistently mishandling everything from the start and always working from behind, always changing its information and positions but never admitting it can be wrong).  This attitude is also inappropriate and based on only a few cases with a few specialized hospitals; if there was ever a larger outbreak, the health system would quickly be overwhelmed.  However, we know what happens when you underestimate a foe.  For some reason, they are content with taking a big risk in allowing exposure to American citizens, which simply means they are fine with gambling with the lives of citizens --- there is no other way to put it and it is the truth and cannot be explained away. 

 

And then after the government and CDC have decided to allow the disease to enter the country freely without any resistance at all (indeed, its policies make it easy to come in and spread) and there is no sufficient quarantine procedure in place; quarantine is not mandatory, but only voluntary.  Also, why was there no clear, concise and correct announcement broadcasted to the nation and all health institutions on how to care for infected individuals and take the necessary precautions to contain the virus?  At the very least the CDC should have directed the Texas hospital that took in the first case of ebola brought in (uncontrolled) by an infected non-American, a Liberian man.  This is especially the case when, as mentioned before,  America already in a controlled manner brought in some infected Americans overseas for treatment and therefore has some real experience.   In fact, why was the CDC itself not handling this pivotal first case in Texas?  Instead, we see that Dr. Brantly was in full level 4 biohazard gear (hazmat suit) and treated in a level 4 biohazard room while the Texas hospital staff were woefully ill-prepared to contain the virus and some got infected. The CDC blundered. We also find that the CDC told one of the infected nurses who cared for the Liberian man that it was fine to get on a plane despite having a fever.

 

An example of not taking it very seriously and only using half-measures, are detection procedures at the airport once visitors are already in America such as taking temperatures and asking questions to determine if one has ebola is virtually useless.  Should we be reminded that the Liberian man who came over to the United States with ebola and died, and then infected two of the nurses who treated him, lied on every questionnaire form in Liberia so that he can come to America?  And what if someone does not have a fever while getting off the plane, but they get a fever a few hours later?  This infected person would have avoided detection.  It is a matter of timing whether you detect it or not.  Proof that this screening does not work and someone with ebola can get in anyway is found in Dr. Craig Spencer who was treating ebola patients in Guinea and returned to New York City on October 17, 2014 – he did not get a fever until 6 days later and was found to have ebola.  And if someone has ebola, how do we prevent the infected person from giving it to people on the plane?  Would it not be possible for this infected person to give it to other people in the airport including the persons scanning him, the ambulance driver, etc.?  After all, not everyone is wearing full hazmat suits.  How difficult would it be to contain all this?  The CDC keeps saying it is “unlikely” that people around suspected persons are not infected.  “Unlikely” means one does not “know” for sure.

 

And again, after allowing the disease to enter America, another half-measure is the belated and grudgingly commanded 21-day “voluntary quarantine” at home for high-risk individuals coming in such as doctors and nurses overseas who have treated ebola victims in West Africa.  However, Dr. Nancy Snyderman shows us that even an agreed upon 21-day quarantine could not be abided, because she needed to go out to get soup.  And Dr. Spencer above also lied about keeping himself under voluntary quarantine and was reckless in traveling all over New York City after his return from Guinea – traveling on 3 trains, a taxi service, going to bowl at 2 lanes, going to Herald Square, jogging, etc., despite feeling weak (then finally reports himself when he got a fever).  The federal government has not issued any type of policy to prevent ebola from arriving nor how to control ebola once in America.    

 

Is America really so deep in political correctness, ineptitude and fear that it cannot mobilize to control the situation?  Are the leaders so stuck in politics and ideology that they will not stop possible infected persons from even reaching America and put the lives of Americans in danger?  Once infected people get here, it is too late.  As if to justify why infected people are not banned from flights to America, some say the only way to stop ebola is at the source.  Of course you must stop it there, but that also means you must stop it from getting to you as well.  Stopping the disease at the source is a sound bite that means nothing if the disease is able to leave the source area.  This is common sense.  Indeed, the common sense way to handle it is to stop it and contain it at its source and after it is stopped, only then can people even be considered to be allowed to come in.  Ebola is just too contagious and deadly a disease to allow to spread.  Everything should be done with maximum precaution to not even introduce the possibility of spreading and an epidemic/pandemic.  Prevention means stopping the disease in the first place and prevention also means stopping it from spreading and getting into your country. 

 

So instead, why is the executive branch of government so stubbornly refusing to block off infected people from coming – allowing flights and other transport to and from the infected countries, but instead is stubbornly allowing them in against the will of the people and common sense?  This makes even less sense when we know that this same administration which refuses to ban flights to prevent ebola from spreading, was quick to try to stop flights to Israel earlier in 2014 based on supposed safety reasons.  Everyone knows the ebola virus is highly contagious with a high mortality rate; it is a true health hazard and warrants banned flights, but yet this is not done. To highlight this truth that the executive branch actually wants ebola to come in with all its risks, some in the executive branch want to bring into America infected non-American people for treatment.  Why would such an action to allow ebola the opportunity to come to America, get a foothold and start an epidemic purposely even be considered?  Why take such a deadly risk which defies logic?  

 

And another example of the federal government not seeming to care, not having any sense and intent on doing what is clearly wrong and not right --- why is the executive branch and CDC so strongly opposed to the idea of mandatory 21-day quarantines?  They frowned upon certain state governments like New York and New Jersey from implementing mandatory quarantines for people who have been in the infected regions.  The federal government also has said and done nothing when nurse Kaci Hickox who came back from the region threatened to sue the state of New Jersey over its 21-day quarantine of her; and then when she returned to her home state of Maine, she refused to abide by Maine's quarantine protocol.  But even the U.S. military thinks that the federal government is wrong and has went ahead to issue its own 21-day mandatory quarantine (yes, this is another example of how the U.S. military (and therefore American security) suffers from bad leadership from the top).  So now we have a contradiction where the military has mandatory quarantines on people coming from those areas, but civilians do not.  

 

Instead of taking every precaution to prevent the ebola virus from creating an epidemic in America, the government wants to do everything it can to make it as dangerous and as likely as possible that ebola will run rampant in America.  Every single time there is an opportunity to close the door on ebola in America, the federal government and CDC have used the opportunity to try to kick the door down and give ebola a chance for free reign.  The fact that the executive branch of government is not doing anything to stop ebola in America such as: stopping ebola from coming to America from the source; not putting a mandatory quarantine; and even thinking about bringing infected non-Americans to the U.S. for treatment, shows us that for some reason, the executive branch is dead-set in bringing the ebola virus to America and it is doing it on purpose.  Let us not be politically-correct and just say it like it is. 

 

We must be honest with ourselves and see that what we find is the following.  At the very least, the government is so ideological that it is willing to let Americans die.  Either that, or government has lost its mind.  Or worse, the government has more sinister motives to let ebola loose in America. And worst of all: it is all of the reasons just given.

 

We see that instead of stopping it from getting into America, the federal government is allowing it to get into America, and then when it is in, try to contain it.  Letting it in and then try to contain it?  What insane logic is this?  And I say “try to” contain it, because ebola is so contagious and clearly the CDC does not know everything about ebola (or if it does, is not telling us the whole truth), that ebola is bound to spread if you keep on giving it more and more chances to do so – which is exactly what the government and CDC keeps on doing.  Therefore, there really is no “gamble” in containing it.  But the reverse is true: the more you deal with or “play around” with ebola – and this is what the government and CDC is doing, you are not gambling but you are guaranteeing an epidemic will occur that will and cost many, many American lives.  In other words, it is the old saying waiting to come true: "If you play with fire, you are bound to get burned". It makes absolutely no sense at all to take any chances.  To underscore this, we find that the day after Election Day 2014, NYC officials declare the 100+ people who were under monitoring for the ebola virus tripled to 300+.  It is the failed government policy of not banning two-way transportation between America and infected areas, and having no solid quarantine procedures, that has led to infected people coming in and things getting out of control.

 

The simple and unavoidable truth is that if you really care about your country and its citizens, you would do absolutely everything in your power to stop it from getting into your country (like other countries do and did by enforcing border controls to prevent infected persons from getting in).  You just do not take any chances if you care. All of the executive branch’s actions tell us that they want ebola here, even looking to possibly import it from non-Americans, and then take advantage of the situation and how deadly ebola is to use it as an excuse to push through a vaccine. 

 

This purposeful intent to bring ebola into America is especially self-evident when everyone KNOWS (from scientists and history) that the only and natural way to stop a contagious disease such as ebola is to contain it within where it started to let it burn out and not letting it spread.  Therefore, going against this true natural way to keep it confined and destroyed (as happened in earlier outbreaks) is to purposely spread the ebola disease throughout the world --- where once it was contained, now people are purposely giving it wings (on airplanes) to allow to spread.  

 

These responses and behaviors by those in leadership makes one want to ask more questions, like:  Why did the U.S. federal government purchase 160,000 hazmat suits just before ebola appeared on American soil?  Is it strange that the government seems to plan for an outbreak in America before it comes, but yet does absolutely nothing to prevent it from coming in and is actually working toward letting it come in more?  And why did the same government and the CDC patent the ebola virus in 2010 and this is not made common knowledge through media, government, etc. today?  This should be headline news everywhere, especially with what is happening now.   Americans should really wonder and ask why American lives are valued so little by the government.  All of the federal government’s behavior about ebola – including the push for a vaccine to “solve” the problem, should especially make everyone pause and think if something else is going on.  Or did we already forget the H1N1 bird flu scare back in 2009 that rapidly pushed vaccines upon the populace, even to those who were normally considered too weak and too dangerous to receive such a vaccine (the pregnant and elderly)?


In fact, we see everything we have discussed until now and also the rest of the article that common sense is not being used at all to strengthen the nation and protect its citizens, but instead every action taken is to endanger and weaken every aspect of America such as its economy, governing infrastructure and especially the safety of its citizens.  And once America is put in danger by these reckless illogical actions, these self-inflicted dangers will be used as excuses for the federal government to try to step in to supposedly protect and push a radical agenda of control to take advantage of the crisis – which it has created in the first place!


Continuing with ebola, people all over the world are told by the “experts” such as the CDC that ebola can only spread by contact with infected bodily fluids and it cannot be spread through the air.  But is this really true?  Why is everyone being told this when there is evidence in animal experiments that it can be spread through the air or droplets?  Is everyone really being told the whole truth?  Do even the “experts” really know how dangerous the virus is and how it can be spread?

 

The cold and flu virus can be spread through the air such as through coughing and sneezing where it can be breathed in or land on things and infect those who touch it.  The ebola virus can survive outside a host body for many days and even more in damp weather.  Recent research has shown that certain strains of the ebola virus can survive up to 50 days.  Coughing and sneezing is just the forceful expelling of internal bodily fluids through the mouth and nose.  So are we sure it cannot spread by air or droplets?  Some places admit that if an infected person sneezed on you, you can get infected, but it then says this is “unlikely” because the infected person would be too sick to move around and destruction of the lungs would come at a very late phase.  This is a lame attempt to downplay the possibility of spreading ebola so easily, but what if ebola occurs at the same time as flu or a cold or allergies?  Remember that ebola destroys your immune system, so it combining with other illnesses can happen, especially in cold weather.  

 

Until now, ebola has only surfaced in hot climates like Africa, so will it actually be able to survive longer in colder weather than in hot (heat is better able to kill it – to dry it out, but it is still too deadly)?  Does the CDC and government really know?  Or have they been hiding something?  Why else have hundreds of doctors and nurses died treating ebola patients even though they were protected?  Why else are full hazmat suits required?  Perhaps because it knows that people are not stupid in seeing the inconsistencies and to cover itself (as if expecting an outbreak in America), we find out that the CDC was indeed hiding something all along.  In the last week of October 2014 the CDC finally admitted (quietly through its website) that ebola can be spread by droplets (so you can breathe it in or touch contaminated surfaces, just like getting a cold or flu).  Note that viruses are able to live longer in cold and moisture.  With the winter season, this will be a nightmare (coincidentally, the timing of ebola hitting America is right before the flu/cold winter season).   

 

The ease of transmission has been hidden from the general public and the world all this time and most news outlets somehow have not considered it newsworthy and did not tell anyone.  However, this ease of transmission is even more reason why the ebola virus must be taken seriously as the life and death thing it is, and prevented from getting the country at all costs.  And why is the federal government and CDC not letting people know that only a percentage of infected people present with a fever?  So it is known that checking for a fever is not enough to identify an infected person.  Yet again, more reason to not let anyone in and to exercise mandatory quarantines; more reason to treat it seriously like life and death.

 

The CDC is failing in fulfilling its mandate and namesake – “disease control and prevention”.  As mentioned before, prevention means stopping it from starting at all, and prevention also means preventing it from starting in your own country.  It is also part of the constitutional responsibility (it is the #1 responsibility) of the nation’s leaders to protect its citizens.  The way to protect American citizens from this deadly virus is to prevent infected persons from getting in which means suspending visas, closing both air and other types of transport as well as the nation’s borders so no one can just walk in without thorough review of who they are, what they do, what they might have, etc.  However, this will never happen in the political environment today with leaders whose ideology overrides all else, including the security and health of the nation’s citizens. Never in the history of the United States of America has this been allowed to happen, and America is at the most pivotal moment of its history right now. 

 

With an incubation period of 42 days (6 weeks) and not 21 days as often stated, infected persons with ebola can show no signs/symptoms until up to 42 days/6 weeks from getting it (which brings to mind the question: why are possibly infected people still only being quarantined and monitored just for 21 days).  This means that especially without any kind of interference (procedure to identify and prevent health hazards from getting into a country), anyone who is infected can get in without a problem at all. They can do this easily just by getting on an airplane. 


Or even worse and easier, all that is required is just one of America’s enemies, whether terrorist or enemy national, to come in through the open border down south with Mexico with or without the rush of illegal immigrants America is inviting to come in.  Illegal immigrants from Middle Eastern countries with terrorist ties have already been seen coming through the Mexico border.  Ebola is a terrorist's dream weapon short of a nuclear attack.  Diseases which America does not usually see have already entered and infected its citizens.  So how easy would it be for one or many infected terrorists to infect a crowd of illegal immigrants and for all of them to come into America and infect Americans?  It would be total chaos, but it is a scenario which is not only possible, but probable, because some terrorists have a love affair with death: they are more than willing to die in order to kill as many innocents as they can. 

 

Americans should take note on how troubling and worrisome it is that the ebola and the immigration problem is occurring at the same time together with terrorism raising its ugly head again.  In the news now all we hear about is terrorism and beheadings at the same time as ebola. There is a target on America and its leaders are making it very easy to hit the target by weakening America’s defenses (military, security, border, etc.) and doing virtually nothing about anything.  So now we must add an epidemic as another reason why martial law can be imposed.  Of course, an epidemic that is out of control will lead to the social, economic, military/security collapse of the United States of America, and the implementation of martial law will be the political/governance collapse.

 

Is this just one of the real reasons why there was a “zombie apocalypse” scenario made known to the public in recent years?  It seems like a joke, but lots of money is being put into the preparation with drills and other training activity.  The problem is that it is not a joke.  The “zombie” part is just a description to disarm you and cover up the truth:  the U.S. federal government is preparing itself to invoke martial law for a catastrophic event where there is total chaos/disorder, a complete breakdown of social order – such as conditions that might be created from: an economic collapse; war/massive terrorist attack(s) on American soil; an epidemic/pandemic that cannot be contained or problems caused by other biological/chemical agents loose in the American population, etc.  The last one --- illnesses caused by biological or chemical agents, may require complete lockdown/quarantine of affected individuals and even towns or cities in order to contain it, if the illness is uncontrollable and rampant. 

 

What we see, therefore, is that an out of control disease situation is the surest and quickest way to impose martial law and simultaneously bring about the fall of the United States of America.

 

So in all this, we see that America’s defenses is being torn down in three major ways to leave America and its citizens completely defenseless from attack by enemies both foreign and domestic:  1) the military has been greatly weakened with no leadership; 2) the attack on the Constitutional right for Americans to keep and bear arms for defense; 3) the borders are non-existent and there is absolutely no defense from criminals, terrorists, foreign armies, disease, illegal immigrants that further burden an already staggering America that cannot even support itself and its legal citizens.  


So in addition to this, why is the government stocking up on hollow-point bullets even though the size of the military and military spending is drastically reduced?  Why are they doing this while the rash of shootings recently will be used as an excuse at the same time to take away the Constitutional right to bear arms?  When they remove this right, they will very intentionally create the civil unrest/war they want which enables them to enact martial law as planned.  Are American citizens safe if it appears their leaders may be preparing to wage war on them?

Totalitarian regimes always use propaganda to promote their agenda; never lets a disaster "go to waste" without using it to do things otherwise not permissible by the people; and always tries to disarm the people both mentally, spiritually and physically, in order to control them like a tyrant king to peasants. 

However, despite all this, we should have nothing to fear if we have our heart, mind and faith on God and His son, Jesus the Messiah, because we look forward to eternity regardless of what happens in this time and world.

But we must remember: we must not get angry or use force; totalitarian regimes will use force to achieve their goals, but our goal is the narrow road of holiness and eternal life, not the broad road of the weakness of the flesh and physical life.  We must not fall prey to the saying: "those who live by the sword, will die by the sword", because to do so is to put our eternal salvation in danger.  We must not allow ourselves to be provoked into doing something that we will eternally regret.  This article is written to sound an alarm while there is still time to prepare everyone spiritually, to strengthen our faith, which is the most important thing and has eternal consequences – if we stick true to the example of the Lord Jesus and what He has done for us, we will have nothing to fear. 

We must not think of or turn to violence and vengeance, because if we do this we can endanger ourselves mentally and spiritually --- still letting them win while we lose eternally.  No, we must not react in the weakness of the flesh, but we must be spirit-filled and strong-willed (by Christ abiding in us) and leave vengeance to God, because vengeance belongs to Him.  It is not a physical battle, but a spiritual battle we must win.  The Almighty has given judgment to His son Jesus and the Lord Jesus will judge righteously.  As mentioned at the beginning of the article: we must literally imitate Christ and not fight or resist even if we die, but leave judgment to God and maintain rock-solid faith until the very end.

Let us also always keep in mind this sobering thought to keep our paths straight and our reward sure on the narrow path:  the enemy is the god of this world and has planned for many different ways to achieve the same goals. 

This means, as we have already seen, that there will be several ways to bring about the fall of America and the institution of martial law.  It can be brought about by war, terrorism, economic collapse, removal of Constitutional rights (note: martial law itself is written to automatically override Constitutional law), etc.

So it very literally does not pay to worry about the things that are physical, but we must set our minds on things above and spiritually, not on things on the earth (Colossians 3:1-4); and we must be wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:16).  Please remember also this one very important thing which is the proper and Biblical attitude to have: as these things happen, we must remain steadfast and sure, because all the things happening just means our redemption draws near and we are that much closer to reaping an eternal reward – eternal life and everlasting joy with the promises of God in Christ.

 

We must note very importantly that in recent years the crimes we have been seeing, both with firearms and without, are a sign that demonic activity is getting stronger and it will get much, much worse as the world spirals/ further declines into the chaos of end times where social disorder, martial law, wars, famines, pestilence, and other disasters rule the day.

And let us not be fooled:  the total grab of power by any government is always ultimately a military exercise and that is why we are discussing this and related seemingly non-military things (such as taking advantage of disasters and controlling media) in this military decline section.

 

One such example that is only the beginning of the suppression, oppression and inevitable military policing of the American citizen is the discovery that the U.S. administration in charge of collecting taxes, the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) has an "enemies list" and was purposely targeting political opponents (conservative individuals and groups including pro-Israel groups and Christians) who were seeking non-profit organization tax-exempt status.  Among other things, they were asked to provide personal information including the names of family, friends and donors, what was in their prayers, and were subjected to un-called for audits. The groups that were targeted had these words as part of their name: patriot, constitution, etc.  The federal taxation authority was doing this for the last two years, but only recently admitted it and “apologized” for it. 

 

During this two-year period which covered the 2012 presidential election, conservative groups did not receive tax exempt status, but liberal groups did (therefore any unbiased person can see that the IRS was doing this to influence the election), and the news and apology only occurs after the presidential election where a high official of the tax administration resigned a couple of months before the end of 2012, and he does not believe this targeting of U.S citizens is illegal.  The chief legal counsel of this federal taxation institution was a political appointment of the current administration, and let us not fool ourselves – any agency that falls within the control of the federal/national government, especially those agencies which control security and the money that funds government, can only do what the federal government tells it to do.  

 

What the IRS did in breaking its charter and working to influence an election is illegal.  A special commission was formed to investigate.  You will never guess what they were told. The leaders in the IRS under investigation all said their E-mails for the 2-year period have disappeared and cannot be retrieved.  This is very “convenient” and everyone knows – whether you are technically literate or not, that anything on E-mail is NOT lost due to many levels of redundancy/backups.  So it would appear the tax authority is engaged in a cover-up, which is also illegal.

 

And remember, this same IRS is what will control the new healthcare law, which was only “made” constitutional when the chief justice of the Supreme Court said it can only be constitutional if it was made a tax – and just like that, it became constitutional and a tax even though it bypassed the citizens and other branches of government by being promoted as a non-tax.  Only a faltering government can bypass the will of the people and also the other branches of government, and allow one person in the judicial branch to overstep his boundaries defined in the Constitution, and make something a law.  The Supreme Court is only supposed to declare something constitutional or not; it is not supposed to make up ways for something to become constitutional, and then actually apply what it says can make it constitutional, to then declare it a law!

 

There is a famous saying that states only two things are unavoidable: “death and taxes”.  This taxation authority which is the arm of the federal government to collect taxes will in effect be in control of our health; and the matter of health includes the matter of death when health falters and inadequate care is provided or not efficiently administered.  So what has happened in the United States of America is that the national government has the power of life and death – and taxes, over its citizens.  Death and taxes are now unified, because matters of life and death (the health of the citizen) now fall under the healthcare law which is a tax.  Can a government which targets their opponents be trusted to control the healthcare of the citizens?  

 

This can very well fall into the political decline section (how can the government do this and worse: will nothing be done about it), but it is here exactly because it is an indication of where everything is heading toward and will become – a military exercise targeting U.S. citizens for no reason at all except disagreeing with the ideology of the current leaders in government.

 

What is additionally very troublesome is the fact that supporters are fine with allowing the government to have the power to target its opponents as long as it is not them; however, they fail to see that though today they are not the targets, the same government can target them and everybody tomorrow.  Remember, as an example of how national governments become dictatorial, this is what Hitler did in his rise to power.  He did it slowly and little by little so no one will notice what the end-game was.  He attacked separate groups one by one and everyone failed to see the threat of what the end result would be, so they did not speak out or help one another – saying it was “someone else’s problem”, but the end result was everyone being targeted and falling under the tyrannical rule of the government.    

 

And speaking of the targeting of citizens by an overreaching power-hungry government, at the same this tax issue has arisen, journalists are also being targeted and put under scrutiny; having their records pulled up, computers hacked/electronic communications (like E-mails) seized, and being prosecuted for a crime for just being journalists (this attacks freedom of the press).  Why is this happening to them?  Is it because the government again wants to silence people it considers as an enemy to it?  Is it because they are (finally?) doing their job by asking the appropriate questions and looking past the outer layer of propaganda and into the true what/when/why/who/how of events under the current U.S. administration.  What they have been finding puts the administration in a bad light and ultimately accountable for many of these problems. 

 

The targeting of citizens by the U.S. government and its political supporters/agents for no other reason except the fact that the government disagrees with the citizens’ views is more indicative of a totalitarian regime and not the land of the free and home of the brave.  It is a totalitarian mentality that seeks to find and extinguish any and all opponents.  It is a totalitarian mentality that seeks absolute power over the people by controlling everything and everyone by removing freedom.

 

Control is the opposite of freedom.  And this is only the beginning.

 

Indeed, why does it seem that the powers that be are actually provoking unrest like they want violence, possibly to use as an excuse and prelude to remove all rights including freedom of speech (media including radio and Internet) and ultimately to take all control under martial law?  Remember, why are foreign troops here?  Why is the federal government trying to or allowing international bodies to take over the Internet?  Why is America also thinking of giving up the Internet which America created?  How is giving up our sovereignty in military and Internet matters related? 


Why is there an executive order signed on July 6, 2012 (NDRP : National Defense Resources Preparedness) that will give the executive branch unprecedented power to call for martial law for whatever reasons it considers necessary?  This power will include the nationalization of all industries including communications for control by the government.  Are we being set up for martial law based on civil unrest, even civil war that is purposely created to give the reason to enact martial law?

Why is the government enacting laws to monitor all media (even collecting personal information of those in media), like talk radio and other avenues of communication that can give people information to warn them of things to come (like warning of the coming of the Beast)?

Just recently we found out the government has been collecting phone activity information of its citizens from communications companies like Verizon and others.  The government is also doing the same thing with the Internet; it is tracking the Internet activity of the American citizen.  Nothing that is done on the phone and the Internet is free from government surveillance. Why is the federal government essentially ignoring the First and Fourth Amendments and spying on the American citizen by phone and Internet?  How can the American citizen trust the government with this information when we have already seen they abuse their power and attacked the citizenry like in the IRS scandal?  Or is it just another excuse to track citizens it considers as enemies, using the idea of national security to do so?  Note that this is why it is not a good idea for the national government to control the Internet – the Internet will be used just like the IRS as a weapon to target people it does not like and it will be the same targeted people: Christians above all as well as some others who disagree politically. 

And along this vein, what Facebook is doing is again troubling.  In January 2015 the company started keeping track of people’s location of their Facebook account (it probably did it before, but made it official and for everyone now).  So if you are on a computer, tablet or smartphone and have Facebook up, they will be able to identify where you are.  In addition to this, it can track everywhere you have been on the Internet as long as your account is up or anywhere you visit has a Facebook presence (nowadays this is almost everyone/everywhere).  Even if you have been logged off of your Facebook account they can track you up to 30 days without an active account.  The larger search engines like Google can do something similar, but the problem is much greater with Facebook, because by its nature, Facebook has a lot of people’s personal information including photographs and who they know.  And speaking of photographs, Facebook has created a technology that can recognize and compare 2-dimensional images almost to the same ability that the human eye/mind can.  In other words, people’s photos in Facebook can be used to identify who you are very precisely.  When this is combined with all the other information they have about you and being able to locate you, this sounds very creepy and we can easily see how this technology can easily be abused and turned against the average citizen, especially when the national authorities have already shown they distrust the average citizen just because they have differing views and worry about what is happening all around them and the world.

Remember that totalitarian/authoritarian nations usually do not start out this way, but become this way when power-hungry leaders use any reason and take advantage of “emergencies” to give itself more and more power and control until the nation has completely changed and become a dictatorship.  And what happens when the Internet is controlled by the national government and possibly eventually handed over to a world governing body?


Is it mere coincidence that a large datacenter is almost complete in Utah, which has the sole purpose of gathering, storing and processing electronic data (phones, Internet, etc.) on American citizens?  How easy would it be for these programs to be used against the people by those who are known to abuse their positions of power to override the will of the people and justify and do things for whatever reason as they seem fit?  Is this just another sign that America will be part of the one world Beast government with the collection of data being a prelude to the Beast using it to implement his mark to control the world economy, etc.?

With the false categorizing of people whom the government does not like as terrorists and extremists or a “danger” to social order, or other supposed “safety” reasons, do not be surprised in the next couple of years that the freedom of speech we enjoy today, like reading about the Bible truth on the Internet, will be restricted. And what would happen to those who speak Bible truth and with the time running out, try to warn everybody of the signs and coming troubles (and there is no pre-tribulation rapture of believers) and to tell them the way to handle everything is that they must strengthen their faith upon truth to be holy and righteous by returning to the faith once for all delivered to the saints – the Bible truth only and not the doctrines of men?  Will they be falsely accused as extremists as well?  Again, if America has already shown this behavior towards its citizens and even the IRS targeted those who do not agree politically and religiously, what is to stop this from getting much, much worse when the government becomes more totalitarian or an international body takes over (actually, we are perhaps seeing now exactly what the route to remove freedom of speech and freedom of religion will be --- and the pathway to have America fall and be absorbed into the Beast system).

This is because God’s Bible truth is the true and only path to salvation, and it warns of the coming tribulation upon the world – knowledge is power, and this is a threat to the enemy Satan who works behind the scenes and wants no one to know the truth that can save us all.


Did you know that during the 2012 election season it was mentioned in a speech that people do not become successful without help and any success is not really their own, hinting that it is the government that helps?  This politician then specifically cited the Internet as a government invention as an example.  Why this mention of the Internet linking it to the government? 

Has the government accidentally shown its hand as to what it intends to do with the Internet?  That it regards the Internet as “belonging” to the government and therefore the government will do with it what it pleases, such as controlling information and preventing the spread of God’s Bible truth which warns that the time to turn to God is NOW before the darkness comes upon us all and truth will be difficult to come by?   This includes handing the Internet over to others – many our enemies, to control the American citizen.

Of course, we know this is exactly what it wants to do, as we have seen the leaders of America are trying to give away its sovereignty – and therefore the rights of Americans, to a world government.  The control of the Internet is actively being worked on to be transferred over to a world body.  The takeover of the Internet by the federal government is happening right now.

 

As if to underline this future intention on the Internet, why did this same U.S. political administration keep insisting for weeks that a video on the Internet is the reason for the September 11, 2012 attack on the Libyan U.S. embassy that resulted in the death of the U.S. ambassador and other Americans, even though the entire incident was being monitored and known by the U.S. government/security agencies since the very beginning?  People seem to forget that blaming the attack on this Internet video and spreading this lie was also done in front of the United Nations General Assembly in New York a full two weeks later. 

 

However, the evidence has surfaced that the incident was purposely planned on this date to rub America’s face in the dirt and of course, they must blame something or someone else.  People who hate America do not need reasons to attack America; their blind irrational hatred is enough. 


Note that there is already a proposal in the Congress for the government to seize control of the nation’s computers for “security” reasons if necessary, which includes the Internet.  Are these just more attempts to take away freedom and to control information – to keep people in the dark and only give the government’s view of things and give them all control?  We must bring up again:  what is the strange and frightening relationship between having the U.S. military being trained to target innocent citizens as terrorists while letting other nations have a presence and power in our military matters and the Internet?  How is control of information – the media, the Internet, etc. related to military attack and war? 


And it is not just the information in the Internet which can be shut down, etc.  The control of the Internet is truly a military matter, because computer hacking (cyber-attacks) on America is on the rise, many by China.  So handing over control of the Internet to an international group (of which China and Russia will surely have a seat) is a matter of cyber-security --- national security.  The American government talks tough that it must work harder to prevent hackers from getting into sensitive American computer systems (like the electrical grid or defense), so why again is America actually turning off the security alarm/system while at the same time opening up wide the front door to make cyber-attacks even easier and more devastating?  Nothing makes sense and everything is turned upside down as the spirit of Antichrist moves to speedily build the one world Beast government.


These people are playing Americans for fools and the American government is willing to go for it, but this is intentional, too.  It is this same American government that will just about use any excuse to take control of its citizens and play along, knowingly or not, with setting the Beast system.


Indeed, America’s motives our questionable, because it helped remove some nations’ leaders which resulted in an even worse leadership there, while choosing not to help remove others such as Iran which is a hostile Islamic regime. Iran had a freedom/revolution movement and a large young population who openly expressed dissatisfaction with the leaders, wanted its freedom and wanted assistance, but America just oddly stood by and did nothing while it was crushed. 


Also, Iran is building nuclear weapons which it has already said it will use to erase Israel from existence and has previously threatened America (it is now working on missiles that can reach American soil), so we must not be blind to the fact that they will not hesitate to use nuclear weapons against America either. Regarding America trying to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapon-capability, the U.S. has done almost nothing to prevent this and instead engages in secret meetings (in recent past mentioned earlier) and has just passed a treaty which does not make Iran stop, but instead actually helps Iran’s plan which is to just delay in order to get the time it needs to complete a nuclear weapon (Iran will likely have nuclear capability in a couple of years).  Iran has never fully cooperated with inspectors such as barring them from going to certain places.  Iran cannot be trusted just like North Korea cannot be trusted; Iran is trying to do what North Korea did.  North Korea pretended to comply, but in reality lied, ignored and delayed until its nuclear weapons were ready.  And while this nuclear treaty does not stop Iran, but only delays it, other aspects of Iran’s military build-up are not even addressed at all, such as Iran continuing to build inter-continental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) which can reach America with nuclear payloads.


In addition to this, Iran has and supports extensive terrorist networks and is expanding and now controls parts of Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and Yemen, and therefore much of what happens in the Middle East – but none of this is brought up as part of the nuclear negotiations or otherwise.  In addition to its declaration to wipe Israel off the map and push it into the sea, is not Iran’s aggression in other areas cause for additional concern and an indicator of what the true goal of its nuclear ambitions is?  These actions of Iran to become a world power is a sign of the end times in itself, because Iran (Persia) is listed as one of the countries that will come against Israel in end time battle – and the inability or seeming indifference of the United States of America to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weapons is contributing to the fulfillment of end time prophecy and how rapidly it will happen:

 

Ezekiel 38:

2    Son of man, set your face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

3    And say, Thus said the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

4    And I will turn you back, and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you forth, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armor, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

5    Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

6    Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with you.

7    Be you prepared, and prepare for yourself, you, and all your company that are assembled to you, and be you a guard to them.

8    After many days you shall be visited: in the latter years you shall come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

9    You shall ascend and come like a storm, you shall be like a cloud to cover the land, you, and all your bands, and many people with you.   (AKJV)


 

America also quietly supported the removal of Egypt’s president Mubarak and supported the Muslim Brotherhood to replace him (why do they keep visiting the White House?). 

 

America sided with the “rebels” against the Syrian government.  And this situation helped create the terrorist organization named ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq & Syria or the IS, Islamic State) which is an offshoot of Al Qaeda which was considered too radical and violent even by Al Qaeda.


As we see in Libya (America helped overthrow Moammar Gadhafi), Egypt, Iran, etc. it looks like America is trying to pick winners and losers, which you should not do.  And notice who America actually picked as winners and losers.  For those nations which have secular leaders, America has helped remove these leaders or is currently helping to remove these leaders, and now the governance of these nations have either been replaced by radical Islamic rule or they are ready to fall to radical Islam.


This picking of winners and losers – and actually even doing/not doing things to ensure a certain bad outcome results is also done in other ways.  For instance, both major political parties in the American government were agreed that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and harbored terrorists, and America was united with its allies in toppling Saddam Hussein in 2003 (under the previous President who was Bush; note that later, many from one particular political party denied the existence of weapons of mass destruction and then went against their original vote to enter Iraq).  Similarly, there was war in Afghanistan to remove the Taliban terrorists.  However, the current American administration’s (2009 to present) main goal to pull out all American military presence from both countries will not only leave the work unfinished, but result in the very sad fact that several thousand American troops will have died for nothing, because the power vacuum in Iraq will be filled by something even worse and Afghanistan will just descend into terrorist hands again. 

 

Despite the fact that America’s presence in Iraq stabilized the country and together with the freed people of Iraq established a free nation and gained victory, and ignoring the advice of his military leaders, the leader of the American government pulled all American troops out of Iraq by the end of 2011.  So what do we see happening in Iraq in 2014?  The vacuum created by America leaving has allowed ISIS/ISIL (remember, it is an offshoot of Al Qaeda and Al Qaeda is the main reason for our military involvement in the Middle East in the first place) to come in and destroy the stability that America and the people of Iraq jointly worked on all these years.  It has taken over much of Iraq in its bid to take over the entire country (similar to what this same group did with Syria) to create an Islamic caliphate.  In addition to this, the same leader who pulled out all American troops from Iraq also ignored his military and intelligence officials about the rise of ISIS over the last 2-3 years.  So the fall of the dictator Saddam Hussein is being replaced by radical Islamic terrorists that have a primary goal of destroying Israel and America.  The idea of America supposedly fighting over there to prevent terrorism from reaching here turned out to be a waste of time, as leaving the theater of engagement has instead helped these terrorist groups to take over Iraq. 


America and Iraq were successful in removing the ruthless dictator Saddam Hussein and prevented another dictator and terrorist groups from taking control, and allowed a measure of peace and democracy – America and Iraq obtained victory, but now by the actions of the 2014 American administration, we have managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.  How sad.

 

Afghanistan is a major failure as well.  America removed the Taliban from Afghanistan, but American leadership has already stated all troops will be taken out by the end of 2016, which will leave Afghanistan in a similar situation we see now in Iraq where the power vacuum will be filled by undesirable leaders/groups.  Meanwhile, as we said before, the same American leadership has just released 5 top Taliban commanders – curiously, just in time for them to regroup the Taliban in Afghanistan or have another terrorist organization step in after all American troops are gone.  The chances of what happened to Syria and Iraq also happening to Afghanistan is very high and possibly even by the same ISIS terrorists, since it looks like no one wants to stop them.

 

Releasing terrorists is not a good idea.  Take for example the leader of ISIS who is in Iraq now: he was released by the United States in 2009 and said that “New York will see him again”.  ISIS has already threatened to fly their flag over the White House; threatened to attack and destroy America and behead Americans (beheading is their trademark mode of execution and they even train children to do it).  And strangely and ominously enough, just a few months after the threat to take over the White House/America, there was a complete breakdown of security which allowed a person with questionable motives to walk right into the White House before he was finally stopped.  Is this a sign of what is to come when the enemies of America eventually come to take over?  Is it even an invitation for them to come, judging by the timing and how irrational and improbable such a lapse in several layers of security is?  Indeed, are the threats and the eventual terrorist attacks by ISIS in various locations in the United States of America exactly the excuse for an overreaching federal government to institute martial law for total control of the population?


Since the attack on September 11, 2001, there have been other radical Islamic terrorist attacks in America such as the Fort Hood massacre of 13 soldiers in 2009 and the Boston marathon bombings in 2013 (there were also the foiled “underwear” bomber in 2009 and the Times Square bomber in 2010, etc.).  Now there are reports that ISIS is just one of the terrorist groups that have already entered through the southern border of the United States to wreak havoc there.  In the summer of 2014 ISIS called for its members and sympathizers all over the world to just randomly kill people (especially soldiers) in the countries which they live.  This has resulted in militant Muslims starting a killing spree in September-October of 2014 in the United States of America and Canada.  In the U.S. in Oklahoma there was a beheading of a woman and in New York City an attack on police officers with an ax.  In Ottawa, Canada two soldiers were run down by a car with one of them dying and then two days later a soldier was gunned down in cold blood before the terrorist entered the Parliament building and killed.  In 2015 we have the Chattanooga, Tennessee shootings of the marines and the San Bernardino massacre by two ISIS-inspired terrorists. Is this random destruction what we are to expect from now on?   


And what did this ISIS terrorist leader trying to take over Iraq find and now controls?  He found and now possesses the largest Iraqi complex of biological and chemical weapons – the weapons of mass destruction.  With the outbreak of the ebola virus (which has now reached America) and these biological and chemical weapons in the hands of terrorists, is an attack using biological warfare coming upon American shores, in addition to using other terrorist tactics? 

 

 

Also, does anyone find it strikingly strange and “coincidence” over the last year or so that America has had a surge in its illegal immigration problem (created by its own federal government) occurring at the same time as the rise of ISIS (where the same federal government ignored security intelligence reports and called ISIS “junior varsity”) who can use the open Mexican border as the way to get into America and cause damage?  And when we throw in ebola and other diseases that can come in through the border, it does not take long to see that America is in big trouble, especially when most of America’s leaders seem to just want to completely legalize illegal aliens and keep the border wide open for anyone and anything to get in and cause harm to American citizens.   

 

 

Stated plainly – this is a recipe for disaster:

 

Radical Islamic terrorists + deadly diseases + wide-open southern border



We have reviewed some of the major issues and changes in the American military, so it would be remiss if “Operation JADE HELM 15” is not briefly mentioned.  JADE HELM 15 stands for “Joint Assistant for Deployment and Execution, Homeland Eradication of Local Militants, 2015” and is run by the U.S. Army Special Operations Command.  It is a military unconventional warfare training exercise that is scheduled to take place in at least 7 states from July 15, 2015 to September 15, 2015 and will involve hundreds of members of Special Forces and the 4 military branches.  The 7 states are: Texas (marked as hostile), New Mexico (leaning toward hostile), Arizona (leaning toward friendly), California (marked as permissive with small southern tip as hostile), Nevada (permissive), Utah (hostile), and Colorado (permissive).  These soldiers will blend into the population, some urban, as part of simulating real-life covert and battle situations.  The federal government says it is training “to assist our Special Operations Soldiers and leadership in refining the skills needed against an ever changing foreign threat”. 


Some people believe this is not an exercise at all, but will be used to take over those states and enact martial law or at least train to be able to do so in the future.  Meanwhile, supporters say there is nothing to be suspicious of or worry about in “Operation JADE HELM 15”, because such training exercises happen all the time including the use of marking certain U.S. locations, etc. as hostile or other for realism.  But do those who worry about a military take-over have a legitimate concern?  Both sides have to be weighed objectively so we do not jump to conclusions. 


We are not saying the operation is a lie to cover up the fact that it might be putting martial law in place.  It might very well be just a training exercise. However, we must study it closely and realistically see what it means that an operation such as “JADE HELM 15” is taking place.  You as a reader of this article know through your life, common sense, world history, and what the Bible says that we must always look out and be alert, and must always dig for and know the truth to not be caught in deceit or be unprepared.  It is about using critical thinking and observation to discern what is the real meaning of what is being said and whether what is said actually matches with what we see happening.  When we add in end time prophecy and consider we are in the end times, then we must be even more vigilant to observe what is going on around us and to find out what they mean.  We must see if the many things we are see are actually pieces of a bigger picture that is coming more and more into focus and completion each passing day.


There are reasons to be concerned about JADE HELM 15 which we will go over briefly. 


Let us take what the military has told us at face value: that it is only an exercise to refine “skills needed against an ever changing foreign threat”.  When they say “foreign threat” there can only be one of two meanings.  Firstly, “foreign threat” can mean that the threat is in a foreign land and this is a simulation to fight enemies in a foreign land.  The U.S. has been fighting very recently in the Middle East for many years now, and lots of times in urban locations.  And let us be honest; simulation tests are most accurate when they occur in the actual environment in which they will occur and the military strives for realism in training so does not use resources and train lightly, but to be as close to real as possible.  In other words, the fact that the military does not like to waste their time and resources on tests that are not likely or realistic (especially for such a large and complex exercise in this case) and is training in American cities likely means it is for a possible future event in American cities.  These facts plus our ability to set up mock preparations in military reserves rules out that JADE HELM 15 is training for an overseas war scenario. 


The second meaning is that “foreign threat” is referring to foreign enemies (foreign nationals (soldiers or gangs/drug cartels) or terrorists) that have invaded American soil and must be rooted out and destroyed.  The very name itself seems to hint at it being on American soil because it says “Homeland Eradication of Local Militants”.  This is the likely reason for the exercise and it means the federal government believes we will be invaded by a foreign threat and is preparing for that eventuality.  This is a major concern all by itself which we must find out more about and we do not need to even think of it being a martial law action instead.  Of course, once war does break out, martial law will then likely be initiated afterwards anyway.


What supports this foreign invasion scenario is when we look at the states involved.   They are all states that border Mexico and a few which are just above these bordering states.  As we just discussed, Mexico is wide open for anyone, like enemy nationals and terrorists, to walk right in and cause disaster.  So we see that it is a very real problem; an attack through the Mexican or nearby border is expected.  But as we also discussed, the federal government seems to purposely not do anything about the border and encourages people to come over.  And this leads into our discussion of why people have other legitimate concerns about this operation being other than just a foreign invasion exercise.


The first thing is the scope of this exercise is larger than anything tried before and it is going to be on American soil in populated areas involving becoming part of the population.  Even if one believes this is really to prepare for a foreign invasion, the sheer size of the operation is difficult to grasp and the partial covert nature of the test leaves the possibilities of accidents and misunderstandings between the military and civilians (which can lead to disaster – look at the riots that occurred in America recently as examples). 


But it is more than this.  People already see that Christians are being removed from the military, the military is being taught that Americans who have differing views can be viewed as domestic terrorists and the military has been training in other realistic simulations of deployment in urban areas and how to come against citizens in their homes and internment camps.  They already know that the government wants to remove the 2nd Amendment and take away the right to bear arms; Texas is the largest most independently-minded state which is strongly pro-gun rights and allows its citizens to carry guns and very vocally opposes legislation to ban guns.  Many Americans have said they will refuse to give up their 2nd Amendment Constitutional right to protect themselves and their families with guns and so it is plain to see if the 2nd Amendment is repealed, that the federal government is creating a scenario where it will provoke and fight and kill its own citizens.  Utah has that ultra-large datacenter.  Colorado is where much of the military hideouts and other things are.  And as we mentioned before, the states involved border or are near Mexico.  A few of those states asked why the federal government does not follow their own federal laws and do anything about the borders to close them and tried to put in their own laws that would do what the federal government would not do, but the federal government prevented this.  So the federal government and these states vehemently disagree with one another about the border.  And again, the name hints of it being on American soil and possibly even American citizens since it says: “Homeland Eradication of Local Militants” – what is another meaning of local and what is more local than homeland people?


So we see how these things can lead to the legitimate concern that “Operation JADE HELM 15” may be used against American citizens.  They believe that this exercise can possibly fulfill two goals at once: not only is it preparing for foreign invasion, but it is also training on how to put in place martial law and subdue citizens after such an attack or if other major disasters (natural or man-made) or social upheaval occurs (caused by economic collapse, racial strife, the aforementioned resistance to the repealing of the 2nd Amendment, etc.).  At the very least, JADE HELM and other exercises like it are conditioning the American people to get used to military policing or impending martial law for whatever the reason.


The thing we must be reminded of is that martial law is not enacted unless it is in response to something.  So let everyone be cool and level-headed about this, and be alert and closely watch what will happen in these end times.  We may not know until things actually happen.  The Bible says we will face tribulation and persecution, and will suffer and even die, so let us always remember and keep it in our hearts and minds that the most important thing is Bible truth and our relationship with our Heavenly Father and His son, our Messiah --- this is what will uphold us through anything and everything, even if we die. 



And regarding terrorist attacks on American soil, we have learned in early September 2014 that the radical Islamic militants/terrorists running rampant in Libya have taken over the airlines and a dozen or so large airliners have “disappeared”.  And strangely, this theft of the airliners happens right after America’s federal government lifted the 30-year ban on Libya which prevented Libyans from receiving training in U.S. flight schools and nuclear science (remember, Libya has a history of blowing up airliners as acts of terrorism and the Libyan ambassador and others were killed just 2 years ago).  Now Libyans can get flight and nuclear education from the U.S.  Are we going to see another 9/11 type of attack in America or elsewhere soon?  Note also that ISIS is gaining power in Libya. 


Again, regarding Islamic terrorism in America, in 2014 we have seen “lone wolves” (individuals inspired by radical Islam), some prompted by ISIS, attack innocent people such as co-workers and policemen.



So what is the result of all this and what do we see?  It is this:  everything America has done in the Middle East since 2010 (the Arab Spring and its consequences, the rise of ISIS, the expansion of Iran and near-completion of its nuclear program, etc.), we find that America’s action and inaction – America herself, has molded the events in the Middle East and is assisting in the rapid destabilization of the entire Middle East which will lead to a consolidation under radical Islamic rule, a new caliphate – which all it does is engage in conquest. This is one of the main signs that the end time chaos is upon us:  when the Middle East is in complete turmoil with Israel stuck in the middle of it and the Middle East (and the entire world later) will come against Israel.


And when you really think about it, what has happened since 2010 (and is still unfolding) is only taking advantage of the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in 2003 and completing what it has seemingly started, which is the destabilization of the entire Middle East region to reorganize it and is a critical component of end time prophecy.  A stable Iraq served to counterbalance Iran, but now Iran is poised to take over not only Iraq, but much of the Middle East (until Turkey steps in to prevent it) caused by the instability of American troop withdrawal.   So in reality, the beginning of the mess since 2010 is a continuation of what started in 2003, especially since the toppling of Hussein was questionable all by itself with the existence of the “weapons of mass destruction” still being debated (remember, all parties decided to go in thinking they were there).  And if we want to be even more detailed, we can trace the beginning of the current Middle East problems back to the Islamic regime of the Ayatollah Khomeini taking over Iran in 1979 and ousting the Shah which is another case of America’s influence causing the rise of a radical Islamic government.  So the events we see now with Iran exerting itself is a culmination of the birth of its Islamic regime from four decades ago.


And when we combine America’s recent actions in the Middle East which are leading to a centralized radical Islamic state with the things that America is failing to do to protect its citizens from the threats of ISIS reaching America through porous borders, bad immigration policy, the refugee problem, etc. it almost seems like things are being set up for a radical Islamic takeover – in America and many other nations all over the world.


And speaking of things that are occurring or will occur soon which signal the end time chaos and World War III and beyond:  as we mentioned before, Russia is an ally of Syria – so does American involvement against Syria give the Russians the excuse they need to “become” America’s enemy (as if they really needed and excuse)? Is it really in the best interests of America and the Middle East (the entire world, actually) to allow Russia to become a major player in the region again to help “resolve” the conflict against Syria?  We already know references to the northern countries in the Bible partially represent Russia, so regardless of how this issue is resolved for now, its ultimate direction and end is towards full-blown conflict in the Middle East with many of its nations, surrounding nations and Russia attempting to crush Israel. 


Are America's recent actions and inactions in the area around the Middle East itself a sure sign that not only the end times are upon us, because it is not really a sign of hypocrisy or weakness, but it is a sign that the enemy Satan has succeeded in changing America to be like him? And he is using the nation and all other nations (in the Middle East and everywhere) to bring about one world government with the destruction of Israel and all God's people as his goal?

 

Everything is planned by the enemy.  Do you see how things are being manipulated to ensure America becomes a dictatorship while at the same time, its enemies become stronger? 


So Americans are confronted with the following scenario.  With no border at all and the American leadership providing no leadership and weakening America’s military, will the United States of America be able to defend herself against Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and all the terrorist organizations (ISIS, Al Qaeda, etc.)?  And this is only regarding the military aspect, and does not include the social, political and economic aspects.  So will America be able to stand?   

 

It is not likely, and it is all in the enemy’s plan to lead to total world chaos and one world government.  America must fall and it must fall first before chaos and one world order can come. The enemy will cause America to fall – from within, internally and without, externally.  Without a policeman, the criminals will run free to do whatever they wish, and the Antichrist/Beast will arise.



These are just the beginnings of laying the foundation for the American government to seize total control of the Internet or remove it altogether as part of an international plan headed by an international body like the United Nations or other.  This is currently underway in 2015.  This is because controlling information, what people know, by hiding truth and promoting lies/propaganda is the first step to control everything, because again, knowledge is power.

 

They will say the control or removal of the Internet will be all for "national security purposes" or "for our good" or "for the greater good".  They will blame the Internet for terrorist or "extremist" activity and other criminal activity (note this is the same reason they will use to remove the Constitutional right to bear arms; it will supposedly be for our "safety", but we all know when arms are taken away from law-abiding citizens, then only the government and criminals will have access to them).  They will blame the Internet (and talk radio and other media they do not agree with) for the potential of creating social disorder.

 

However, we know the control or removal of the Internet is because they really just want the information to come from only one source (their own).  

It is to spread its own propaganda as truth while suppressing access to the real truth:  God’s Bible truth.

Totalitarian governments always want the people to be totally unaware of what is really going on and silent, with only itself as provider of information and everything else.

We know the reason for controlling or removing the Internet is really the suppression of Biblical truth and anything that might oppose the worldview or policies of the future one world government.  It is the natural extension and magnification of the “hate crime” speech laws that are anti-Bible and imprison “offenders” just because their views are different than the views of those who are in power.  The supposed “fairness doctrine” for other media like talk radio is similar.


This is why this latest and most powerful urge to usher in the nationalization of Internet control is occurring at about the same time as the national government trying to call the people it does not like, such as Christians and political opponents, “extremists”.  This is one of the main reasons radical Islamic terrorists are not identified as such and moral equivalency is incorrectly being used.  Labeling someone a “terrorist” is too aggressive and accurate a term, it is because the idea is to categorize the true terrorists along with everybody else (the people the leaders do not like, especially the Bible-believing Christian or Jewish person who calls the Son of God their Messiah) so they can all be called “extremists” instead and lump them all together. When all are considered the same by the leaders in government, only then will it be justified in their minds to persecute innocent Christians and others they do not like, and it be used as an excuse to take over the entire Internet and control who can do or see what, if anything at all.  As anyone can clearly see, if the IRS can be used as a weapon against the citizenry just because the government does not like them, then what makes us think the same would not happen with the Internet? 


The governments of these countries which seek to deny freedom of speech will deny any evil intent, but this is not the point.  They may not even know what part they are playing in the bigger picture.  However, this much is true: by their actions to control or remove the Internet and other media according to their choosing and reasons, they are actually proving the case against them – that what they are doing is wrong and completely in line with the enemy’s plan for world government which begins with the dissemination of lies and destruction of truth. 

 

The end result is restriction of freedom of speech, but the reason for it is to spread only lies while silencing truth. The attack on freedom of speech is ultimately to silence God’s Bible truth – trying to prevent it from reaching everyone in the world, and everyone is desperately in need of it.  The enemy is trying to silence God’s Bible truth which alone can warn the people and save them for all eternity, from the grasp of the enemy in these end times and his plans of tribulation and world domination that is coming swiftly over the horizon.

The very evident and extremely bad thing for America about these current events is the sad truth which shows why and how America will fall.  For example:  the person who let everyone know that the American government is watching and tracking everything we do is the same person who is on the run and being sheltered by America’s enemies – and letting them also know America’s military and security secrets. This means that the American citizen will be surrounded and under attack from two fronts:  America’s enemies which now has the vital information it needs to penetrate American security, and America’s own government which is power-hungry and will use war and “security’s sake” to take away the freedoms of the citizen and control everything.


The emergency broadcast system has existed for several decades and was always done city by city, state by state.  Why now, very recently in late 2011, has the federal government tested this system nationally over all media?  True, it can be for a national disaster, but the timing is extremely curious, especially in light of all that the government is already trying to do to exert more control over its citizens.

Also signed into law in the dark of night at the very start of 2012 is a law that allows detaining American citizens indefinitely with no charges or due process if accused under a broad “anti-terror” definition.  This law expands the military role/use on American soil (National Defense Authorization Act).  Are Christians and veterans specifically targeted because many of them are the ones who are armed physically and spiritually and hence are enemies to tyrannical government? 

 

As many may know, drones are unmanned small aircraft used to monitor and/or terminate enemy combatants in overseas battlegrounds.  So why was a law passed in 2012 to immediately start the use of drones in the airspace over America? 

 

 

Again, it should be noted that those who wish to assume total power always use an emergency situation as an excuse or path to grab more and more power.  These people take advantage of any emergency – natural or man-made disaster, even economic/financial disaster, to centralize power in the hands of one or the few.  They never let these emergencies “go to waste”.

 

One such emergency is the fact that America has received “warnings” from Iran that if America interferes in any Israeli attack against Iran’s nuclear capability and Iran’s retaliation, than Iran will detonate nuclear devices already present on American soil.  Is it true that nuclear devices are already here?  And let us not be naïve:  if the bombs are already here, it means our enemies could use it any time and for no reason at all, other than because they simply hate America and just want to.  Do not believe the lie that it is only if we help Israel that they will use it.  They will make up excuses to use it and see America destroyed.

And speaking of nuclear weapons used against America, what about using it or other technologies to create an electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) that will disable all electronic/technology equipment (the total loss of power we have seen in the recent U.S. grid outages and major storms is only a very, very small foretaste of this, but even vehicles will not be able to run)?  Such a strike will render the nation and its defenses totally helpless. That, of course, can be done by any of America’s enemies with nuclear or other capability.   A nuclear device can be used in this way and not even require a direct hit; all that is needed is a satellite or any approximate overhead blast.  Iran and North Korea are currently threats to do this over America, even if they do not have the capability yet to detonate nuclear weapons in/over/near America.  It must be noted that the recently signed treaty with Iran in 2015 regarding Iran building its nuclear capabilities does nothing to reduce or halt its nuclear program, but in many ways the treaty is a victory for Iran (its leaders praised it as such) and emboldens the nation, which has always threatened to destroy Israel.  But note again as we mentioned earlier, Iran is building up its military arsenal which includes inter-continental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that can reach America with a nuclear warhead.  In fact, in March 2015 while it was still negotiating the nuclear treaty with America as the head negotiator, Iran has stated in its military guides that it endorses an EMP strike on America.  Since America knows this, why is it still letting Iran develop nuclear weapons and ICBMs?  Very strange and curious that America will allow its enemies to build up these weapons to strike America even though America knows it ahead of time and can prevent it, but yet does nothing about it.  And even after the negotiations ended, Iran continued to threaten to destroy America and Israel.


And on the topic of Iran, what about Iran’s proxy terrorist organizations that it uses and supports? Iran has already made it clear that it will utterly destroy America if given the chance. Even without any of its military and nuclear capability, it can still inflict similar and devastating damage with its terrorist attacks. 


For example, on April 2013 in San Jose, California there was an attack on an electrical grid substation that would have taken down all power to Silicon Valley and other areas.  The phone fiber optic lines were also cut.  The attack was carried out with gunfire which left no fingerprints/evidence and was so precise to very specific components of the substation.  Fortunately, the entire grid was not taken down, but there was still a lot of damage which took many weeks to repair.  At first it was ruled as vandalism, but investigations and the federal government are now considering it as a possible terrorist attack and maybe even a trial run for something bigger in the future.

 

And what about within the last year or so there were two occasions of suspicious people being found in the water treatment facilities of the northeast United States?  What were they doing there?  Was this also a trial run or preparation?

 

What is worrisome about these events is not just the obvious, but also that the American government is not doing much about it and none of these events are being relayed to the general citizenry to let them know what is going on.  The people are being left completely in the dark and will be utterly unprepared when disaster strikes.  The people are also the ones who can also push the government (who wants to do less/nothing) to do more, but if the people do not know anything, then who is held accountable and how will anything be done? 


And are there really terrorist camps already in America just waiting for the go-ahead to wreak havoc?


 

Since we are on the topic of people with totalitarian ideals taking advantage of natural and man-made emergency situations, we must be aware of the very curious events that have taken place during the last two presidential elections.

 

Just before the 2008 election the devastating economic meltdown came out of nowhere as if it was manufactured specifically for that moment.  It impacted the election and provided the winning administration a directive to further the one world government agenda to weaken/change America.  It can now supposedly address the economy with a built-in excuse to overlook its policies that have fundamentally changed the nation in a negative way and made the economy much worse with unsupportable deficits, high unemployment, a devalued dollar positioned to be replaced – putting America at the brink of economic collapse.

 

Just before the 2012 election Hurricane Sandy also came out of nowhere and impacted the election, drawing attention away from the issues including a cover-up of the Libyan U.S. embassy massacre – who knew what and when, why nothing was done, was something else happening there that the government does not want people to know, and why false reasons for the attack were given even though officials knew the truth from the beginning (the American public and the world was being lied to). It is also very strange that even though the head of the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) was under investigation for months, he resigns just 3 days after the election from an affair.  The American leadership pleads ignorance and supposed confusion again.  All this shows the simultaneous decline of the American government, military and morality:  the nation’s leaders engage in adultery and are clearly engaged in total deceit/false witness, telling lies and propaganda while hiding the truth. 

 

The hurricane gave the winning administration a directive to further the globalist agenda.  People have already blamed the recent “super” storms on “global warming” (now called “climate change” to make it more “user-friendly” since global warming is more difficult to convince people and after all, doesn’t the climate change all the time?) – a sign that the administration will use the weather to promote the one world government United Nations-backed economic policies that will further weaken America.  Note that “global warming” is disputed and even when it was revealed that falsification of scientific evidence was done to make it appear that “global warming” is true, the media, scientists and government glossed over it and hastily “swept it under the rug” to avoid the topic and keep it from the minds of the citizenry.  It should also be noted that the goal of one world government and one world religion to bring about a new united global economy system will openly merge as the United Nations initiates its “Sustainable Development Agenda” on September 25-27, 2015 which has the full backing of Pope Francis who will speak at this conference to kick things off.


What has happened the last two elections indicate that things have occurred that ensured the administration which has won the last two elections will gain power and then use this power to weaken America, to level it and make it equally nothing in order to be absorbed into the globalist plan.  But now with the 2016 presidential election there seems to be a possible change in plans. What will happen with the elected new president Trump?  Will it be more of the same or will he be different?  Will he try to change and reverse the current downward course of the nation?  Will he be able to do so, because those partially and wholly responsible for the downward slide will do anything to make sure he does not succeed?  Is “the system” “rigged” or set up and being manipulated to insure he cannot succeed?  Or is it plainly the case that the nation is too far gone and it is in an irreversible path to destruction?  Is it all of these things?


We will have to wait and see.



But with everything that has already been set up (the national government giving itself more power regarding martial law, setting up camps, viewing citizens almost like enemies, training for domestic attack in civilian areas, buying up hollow-point ammunition, militarizing police, etc.), is it out of the question for martial law to be put in place in the next few years? It can be due to a military attack or major terrorist attack (such as with nuclear weapons or mass invasion), or an economic collapse (or the two combined) – all indications point to this happening and America is not preventing it, but seems to be making it, or allowing/complying with it, to happen.  A massive natural disaster or the federal government ignoring its own laws to change the electorate body can also help to keep the current or similar leaders in power.


These things will create the complete breakdown of society which will be the excuse for government to invoke martial law and become a totalitarian police state, just as the enemy has planned all along.  This means no more Constitution which will be suspended during martial law and it also means no more presidency (maybe only in name) and the other branches of government, because the executive branch will just rule like a dictatorship.  If and when this happens, then the American ideals outlined in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution for freedom and the rule of the people by the people to avoid the tyrannical rule of a king (or other centralized government) will be ripped to shreds.  The national government will then rule like a king.


In fact, the enemy has manipulated both the economy and military to ensure the creation of social disorder, the required “emergency”, to enable him to move in to take complete control.  The fall of the economy and the military are only evidence of the decline of the nation’s social/moral fiber and its political leaders who govern this society.

 

It should alarm everyone that instead of averting disaster, the government is making and letting disaster happen, and instead of prevention, it is concerned with preparing for the results of the disaster which it knows will happen and allows it to take control of everything.  This indicates a dark motive behind everything, but most people cannot see it, because they are either willfully ignorant or are too distracted by worldly/carnal matters such as pleasure, selfishness, entertainment, hearing/seeing only what they want to hear/see, cult of personality, etc.  

 

While people are thinking the government will protect them and hand over their freedoms to the government for this protection, instead the government will transform into a complete and ruthless totalitarian dictatorship, and the people will be enslaved.  

 

Any emergency, whether economic or military, by internal or external forces, natural or man-made, etc. will be used to reduce America to nothing and have it folded up into the soon coming rule of the Antichrist/Beast and one world government.

 

And even more, the Bible has a curious passage in Revelation about those who did not worship the image of the Beast nor received his mark; these people will be beheaded by the Beast for their witness for Jesus and God’s word during the tribulation to come:

 

Revelation 20:

4   And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them.

    Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God,

    who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands.

    And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.   (NKJV)


This clearly shows that beheading will be used by the Beast during his reign. Do we see signs of beheading and guillotines being set up as a form of execution/capital punishment?  America may be overrun by its enemies which use this.  There is also the un-biblical Seven Noahide Laws which pretends it is Biblical and is supposedly a universal moral code and was signed into law in March 26, 1991 to be recognized as part of the foundation of America.  Hidden within it is a death penalty by decapitation for all who believe in Jesus as the Son of God and Messiah, as well as for many people who obey God's 10 Commandments.  Why did America and other nations adopt this supposed universal moral code into their governments as if to set the stage for a future one world government religious law, whether it be this or some other that purposely tries to appear as coming from the God of the Bible, but is not and also has as its penalty execution by beheading for those that do not believe or it disagrees with? 

Is this related to the rise of Chrislam which is the combination of supposed Christianity and Islam (note that the first temple for Chrislam is planned to be built in Berlin for Christians, Muslims and even Jews)?  Remember that Islam is the very opposite of what the Bible teaches so how can it be combined with Christianity?  Why are more “Christian” leaders saying Islam is the same God of the Bible and allowing Muslim prayers?  Besides the religious leaders, why are other areas such as education/universities and government (the House of Representatives recently allowed an Islamic opening prayer in one of its sessions) purposely making it a point to allow Islamic prayer as if, again, to say it is the same God of the Bible when it is not?  Will all of these reasons for beheading be part of the one world government and one world religion of the Antichrist and his False Prophet? 

Is this just another of so many signs of the impending fall of America that will occur so the Beast can take global power?

And please be reminded so that we are not misunderstood in any way: this article is not a political viewpoint siding with any party.  The demise of America has been worked on for many, many years through both parties, but all signs point to the final act of the fall of America – the proverbial nail in America’s coffin, coming just around the corner.  Everything has been gathering full steam in the last few years and now, with everything coming to a head in the very near future, in the next few years.  The purpose of this article It is to reveal and open the eyes and ears of everyone who might have eyes to see and ears to hear, that the rise of Satan’s Beast/Antichrist government begins with the complete, utter and opposite change of the United States of America into the image of the Beast.  The destruction of America as we know it has no political boundaries except to fulfill the ultimate goal of the enemy in these end times. 

 

These things that are happening in America are the signs of the times that persecution, tribulation and catastrophe upon all are coming soon and the end of the age is near, leading to th1,000-year kingdom headed by Christ.  So we must not ignore or push aside these signs, but we must prepare and strengthen ourselves spiritually, to be on the right terms with God and Christ, while we still can.




The Bottom Line

 

This downward spiral of America, including the government viewing and using its citizens as opponents and puppets, has been especially evident the last few decades (though the self-absorbed and self-destructive machinations of the government with its ties to a one world government agenda has been around much longer) when the push to globalize was really the sign/start of the death-knell of America’s sovereignty and independence.

 

The mad rush of things occurring all around which make no sense, such as spending more money it does not have, thereby increasing the national debt which can never be repaid, and raising taxes on the people which will only worsen the economy, will only further weaken an already weak dollar and only tells us one thing: the enemy is succeeding in his plan to destroy America. Satan is working to destroy America from within – to conform America into his image.  It is this changing of America from within into the image of the enemy that has caused and will cause all these problems; it has all been in the enemy’s plan for many, many years and it will reach his desired goal very, very soon.

 

 

All that we have discussed so far indicate that the American government is very actively and thoroughly engaging in self-destructive actions which can only lead to catastrophe for the nation and all its citizens.  It brings up a very disturbing and sobering question….

 

We can see that Satan has been using America as a tool/instrument to attain his goal of one world government.  The questions though are these. 

 

Is America merely a pawn who is being manipulated unknowingly? 

 

Or is it the sad truth that America is not a pawn at all, but a willing partner with Satan to bring about the Beast/Antichrist power, and has been part of Satan’s plan for world government for a very long time?

 

In other words:  Satan has his tentacles around the world (remember, he is god of this world, after all) and America is no different than any other nation – they are all just parts of Satan and his plan for world domination. 

 

What began as a wonderful promise of liberty and freedom from tyranny has instead become today an exercise in dismantling liberty and freedom, in order to create the tyrannical conditions necessary to bring about the ultimate tyranny – the Beast/Antichrist one world government.


America was once blessed when she tried to honor God, but now she fights against God and has fallen away from her first love.  And as seen in the example of ancient Israel (and soon to be modern Israel), when a nation leaves her God to follow other gods and their own ways and not God's ways, then the nation is no longer blessed and protected by God, but is instead open to the attacks of the god of this world.  Just like how fallen Israel was conquered and even taken away into captivity by her enemies (eg. Assyria, Babylon, etc.), which will happen yet again in the soon-coming future, a disastrous fate also awaits America.   


 

 

So what is the bottom line for America?

Is there a demise of America?  Yes.

What is the demise of America? 

 

It is this: 

America will be besieged by enemies from every direction --- from without and from within. 

And America will become her own worse nightmare.  America will become a dictatorship.

The freedom from tyranny she has fought so hard for which was the reason the nation was birthed will be wasted. An America that is not free is not America.  But this is a glaring reminder that ALL mankind is not free and still in bondage to the enemy until the Lord Jesus Christ returns.

 

She will be pulled back into the tyranny she has escaped from and become just another totalitarian regime that oppresses its people, only adding to the end time disorder and destruction, very much resembling the Beast, equally nothing and useless, falling easily in line with the Beast’s one world government.  And why not?  It is the very same god of this world who orchestrates America’s fall into totalitarian rule and also the rise of the Antichrist’s rule.  America is now an obstacle, blocking the way, but the enemy will succeed in removing this obstacle.


What we see happening in America and the entire world is the enemy Satan's plan to set up his one world government and religion, and it echoes the Bible truth of the words of the prophet Isaiah. Nothing makes sense anymore; there is no more common sense and rationality.  Logic and moral standards have “left the building”, left America.  In the end times the enemy Satan knows his time is short, so he works extra hard to exert his influence in the world and have everything descend into chaos and destruction.  Everything will be upside down.  Woe to the nation that says good is evil and evil is good.  This is why the average US citizen (and the nation is a Christian nation no matter what some people try to say otherwise) and Bible believing Christians and Jews will be demonized just for being who they are though they have done nothing wrong. What is good will become bad, and bad become worse.  We are now in these times:


Isaiah 5:

18   Woe to those who drag iniquity with the cords of falsehood, And sin as if with cart ropes;

19   Who say, "Let Him make speed, let Him hasten His work, that we may see it; And let the purpose of the Holy One of Israel draw near And come to pass, that we may know it!"

20   Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

21   Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight!

22   Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine And valiant men in mixing strong drink,

23   Who justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!

24   Therefore, as a tongue of fire consumes stubble And dry grass collapses into the flame, So their root will become like rot and their blossom blow away as dust; For they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.    (NASB)

 

However, whatever you see happening around you and whatever you do – please do not respond with anger.  Violence begets violence and those who live by the sword die by the sword. It is not even because the totalitarian powers want this and must not be given any excuse to do so. Indeed, these powers may even fool everyone to believe the innocent and free citizens are responsible for violence when it is not true, in order to create the excuse to gain absolute power over the entire populace and remove these freedoms. 

When we see Bible truth happening before our eyes, we should not become upset.  Instead, we should consider it a warning and reality check.  For those who do not believe in God, yes indeed the Bible is true – every bit of it.  The Lord Jesus Christ came as a man to die for us and then He was raised for us.  He died for our sins to pay the price of atonement in our instead He was raised for us to show us eternal life is a precious free gift for the believer:

 

Romans 6:

23    For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.   (NKJV)

 

 

For people who do not believe in Christ and the Bible, this is precisely one of the primary reasons that God gives prophecies in the Bible.  He gives prophecies so that when non-believers see them come to pass, they will stop and reflect and see that God is indeed true and is speaking through the pages of His holy word.  Through history and current events aligning with the Bible truth, people will feel God speaking to them.  God is saying it is not too late to repent of our sins and turn back to the God that gives us life and loves us so much.

 

And for believers in Christ, it is still a warning and reality check of a different sort. We must not become angry, because as believers in Christ, this is not what people are to do; believers must not love this world more than God and jeopardize our salvation by following a path that feeds into our fleshly weaknesses. We must not “sell our souls” as it were, to live better now, and risk our eternal salvation in the process.  Becoming angry is a sign that we are still tied to the world and the flesh, but we must remember to look past it and forward/ahead toward an eternal reward.   

The Bible even tells us specifically not to do this. We must not repay evil with evil and thereby be overcome by evil ourselves, but we must leave wrath and vengeance to God who will repay; we must do the will of God and continue to be good and do good until the very end even when faced with death, like Christ:

 

1 Peter 2:

11   Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul,

12   having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers,

     they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.

13   Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake, whether to the king as supreme,

14   or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good.

15   For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men ---

16   as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God.   (NKJV)

 

Hebrews 10:

30   For we know Him who said, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord. And again, "The LORD will judge His people."   

(NKJV)

 

 

Instead, we must strengthen our faith to be willing and able to die for our faith – not kill for our faith.

 

To repeat:  this changing of America is not a reason to get angry and respond in anger out against anyone.  No, no – this is absolutely NOT what we should do at all. 

The truth is that this changing of America which is the topic of this paper is a call to arms for everyone to fight against Satan, the enemy, because our eternal lives are at stake.  Remember, it is NOT a physical battle, but it is a spiritual battle which we absolutely must win.  We must not fall to the weakness of the flesh and our emotions, but we must strengthen ourselves in the spirit and truth. We must seek God’s truth and know it, live it and share it.  We must know His Messiah and be strong in faith on the day of decision.  Our battle is with Satan, because we are not battling flesh and blood, but we are battling evil spiritual forces:

Ephesians 6:

10    Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.

11    Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.

12    For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

13    Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

14    Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

15    and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16    in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

17    And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.    (NASB)


We at SeekGodsTruth.com are trying to prepare God’s people for the spiritual war Satan has waged against mankind since the beginning, which will very, very soon be escalated to an unimaginable scale.  We must be alert and prepared, so that our eternal salvation – eternity with God and Messiah, is assured.

It is a spiritual battle we must win.  We must not just seek, know and live the Bible faith, but we must be strong enough to face persecution, chaos and tribulation – to never give up our faith even in face of death.  We must do this, and the way we can do this and persevere is if we obey the Bible's command to completely and literally imitate the example of Christ.


The United States of America is dangerously close to the edge where anything can happen at any time. How will natural or “man-made” disasters impact all of this? How will the government react and will it use it as an excuse to literally take over all power and control of the citizenry? Indeed, once the culture, government and economy of a nation are morally and fiscally bankrupt, destroying a country from within, the demise of a nation (ie: militarily and others), is inevitable as seen by history.

There is something dangerously sinister happening in the shadows as the enemy has orchestrated the downfall of America and is poised to exact his revenge against the nation that once stood tall, proud, independent, and brave against the injustice of autocratic tyranny over its citizens in the affairs of church and state. The dark seeds planted many years ago by the enemy – his sinister plan for the demise of America within the nation itself, are finally bearing fruit – evidence yet again that the enemy is the god of this world. The enemy is extremely patient and he has waited over 200 years until all the pieces are in place for the fall of America – to make America become its own worse enemy which is to make America look like him:  the enemy.  

This change in America signifies the change in the world and the rise of the Antichrist --- for the way America goes, so goes the world.  America falls first and is the catalyst causing the other dominoes to fall one by one in sequence – all the pieces falling into place for the rise of the Antichrist.


The United States of America is secretly being destroyed from within – methodically disassembling or being dismantled is a more accurate description, and it will become unrecognizable from the nation we know it to be today. This dismantling is happening at very quick, breakneck speed over the last several years and is still happening right now in front of our eyes, piece by piece, day by day.  Sadly, another sign of the times is the fact that most Americans do not know it, because most are too entangled and distracted by the cares and pleasures of the world. They do not know that everything in America is unraveling rapidly as America has largely turned its back to the one true God of the Bible, and America is poised to fall abruptly – left utterly defenseless by enemies from within and without.  The fall of America is imminent and America as we have always known it will be a thing of the past.

The rise of the Beast which the Bible foretells will happen in the end times dictates it.

 

Americans must wake up – and especially the Protestant Christians, because many of them believe in a false pre-tribulation rapture doctrine. The fall of America will be the tribulation the citizens of the United States of America must endure. They will not escape it. Believers must be prepared to die for their faith; believers in Christ must never fall away from naming Christ as Lord and Savior – the Son of God and Messiah of everyone who died for our sins and was resurrected, a model of the destiny of believers.

 

The fate of America in its relationship to the rise of the Beast in the end times is this:

 

Where the United States of America was able to stop the would-be world dictator Hitler during World War II, the only way for the prophesied Beast power to succeed in its rise to power as the world dictator in the end times is that America will not be able to stop him in the Final World War. This must mean America is unable to do so, changed and destroyed, or is part of the problem and not the solution as it was in World War II.

 

But, we should not be afraid of what is happening and will happen, but endure, looking upward with patience, hope and joy, because the Lord Jesus’ return and our being changed to be with God and His son forever, is that much closer to realization.

 

 

 

Reversal to centralized power for the Beast’s rule – America under triple spiritual attack

 

It is not a coincidence that both the Protestant Reformation and the pilgrims’ voyage to a new land occurred near the same time and for similar reasons. It is also not a coincidence, therefore, that the enemy’s goal to reverse these two protests of his rule will likewise occur together and for the same reason: to set the stage for his Beast and False Prophet to take the reins of power over a one world government. The reversal of the Protestant Reformation to be folded into the Roman Catholic Church is one goal of the enemy to control all of the world’s religions. 

In truth, America must fall before the rise of the Beast not only because it is a military and economic obstacle, but also because it is a religious obstacle as well.  They all go together.  As the home of Protestant Christianity today, it is in the way of global one world religion that goes hand in hand with one world government. 

Totalitarian governments usually consist of one ruler who controlled all political and religious affairs, but the Roman Catholic Church is different in that it is a power unto itself and is not isolated to one nation, but keeps itself entwined in the affairs of many nations and the world.

 

The body of Christ or God’s church is a small, humble and persecuted people that does not marry itself to the world or governments. However, the Roman Catholic Church is grand, proud and the persecutor – who does marry itself to the world and its governments. It is because of this nature and the behavior of the Roman Catholic Church throughout history (and additionally calling itself the true church, but all its doctrines contradict Bible truth) that give us a prototypical look into the Beast and False Prophet relationship of an unholy union of church and state control over the world in the end times. The end-time world dictator will require a religious arm with powerful influence to help rule the people.  The Roman Catholic Church is the False Prophet of Revelation; also see the article 'Who is the False Prophet'.

 

Roman Catholics, please do not be offended, but prove to yourself whether the Roman Catholic Church is the true church that it says it is.  I love Roman Catholics and have them as family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues so I am saying this with all love and respect. This is not against the individual who is a good person, but the institution and its teachings are not correct and go against God and His will for you and all mankind.  God wants to be worshipped in spirit and truth which I know Roman Catholics want to do, but you are being deceived by traditions of men.  Please be objective and pray to God for guidance, because Roman Catholicism is not the true Biblical faith and does not follow the Bible.

In recent decades and much more obvious the last several years, the pope and Roman Catholic Church has been very active in trying to bring people all over the world into Roman Catholicism, even to the point of accepting tenets of other religions as valid ways to God.  Of course, it has never given up trying to make Protestants become Roman Catholics.

In these end times, things will get much worse for Protestants and we actually see evidence of this with the recent selection of pope Francis. It is a sign that the Roman Catholic Church and its pope is indeed the False Prophet.

 

Why?


The reason is because Francis is the first Jesuit to ever become pope.  The Jesuits were created back in the 16th century to do whatever the pope commanded them to do, which is to make people all over the world come under the religious headship of the Roman Catholic Church.  In the 16th century, their main goal was to counter the Protestant Reformation and convert people “back” into the Roman Catholic Church.  They were given extremely broad and special powers to perform this task – to do whatever it takes to convert people into Roman Catholicism. 

 

The absorption of Protestants into the Roman Catholic Church is an important first step in making everyone come under the one umbrella of the Roman Catholic Church and its pope.  It goes hand-in-hand together with bringing other faiths into the one rule of the pope and is exactly what the Jesuits were created to do.

And now we have the Jesuits and the pope combined in one as the first Jesuit pope; and similar to how the Jesuits were created “just in time” to fight against the Protestant Reformation, now we have a Jesuit pope “just in time” in these end days to fight against Protestants again.  It is a harbinger of the one world government and one world religion of the Beast/Antichrist and False Prophet that is soon to come.

 

So the United States of America is under a triple attack in this spiritual warfare the enemy wages with believers. Not only must Americans beware of the rise of the Beast and the False Prophet – both secular/government and religious persecution (1st and 2nd attacks), they must especially look out for the 3rd attack which is just as deadly: the belief in the pre-tribulation rapture lie. America is the home of much of the world’s Protestants and many believe in a pre-tribulation rapture.

Why is the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine so deadly? It is because the Bible tells us that all who walk in Christ will be persecuted and suffer, but the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine blinds its believers into thinking they will not have to suffer and will be taken to heaven with Christ before any tribulation. It makes them fall asleep at the time when they must be fully alert for the enemy who is like a prowling lion waiting for prey:

1 Peter 5:

8     Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

9     Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.   (NKJV)

 

 

The Bible says believers will suffer. However, if all the world is blinded, how can they be prepared and fight this spiritual battle? When this happens, casualties in this spiritual war will be everywhere. Please also see the article: ‘The Coming Great Apostasy' and the section ‘A Pre-tribulation Rapture?’. 



The believers in the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine lie will be the ones who go about living their normal lives as if nothing is wrong, because they believe they will not have to suffer tribulation when it comes, but will be taken away from it.  The days of Noah and Lot will come and many will be caught unaware and unprepared – and many of these will be pre-tribulation rapture believers who have always believed the lie:


Luke 17:

26    "And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:

27    they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.

28    "It was the same as happened in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building;

29    but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.

30    "It will be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed.

31    "On that day, the one who is on the housetop and whose goods are in the house must not go down to take them out; and likewise the one who is in the field must not turn back.

32    "Remember Lot's wife.

33    "Whoever seeks to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.    (NASB)



And because they have believed the lie for so long, they will be completely unprepared and their faith will be greatly impacted when the tribulation suddenly comes upon them unexpectedly.  The results will be disastrous.  Many pre-tribulation rapture doctrine believers will be the ones whose faith will be extremely fragile if not totally gone, and therefore prompt the Lord Jesus to say:


Luke 18:

8         "…..However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?"    (NASB)

 


We must also note that not only is there no pre-tribulation rapture, but there will be one resurrection before the return of Christ and one resurrection at His return.  There is a small firstfruit resurrection/offering (of 144,000 of the apostles and select others early in the body of Christ, not the Church) which has no appearance of Christ just before the Great Tribulation, and then the larger resurrection of the body of Christ at His Second Coming.  The small firstfruit resurrection is in fulfillment of the Biblical feast day Pentecost firstfruit wheat offering (the larger resurrection at His return is the remaining wheat harvest).  So we must not make the mistake of thinking there is only one resurrection before Christ’s return and that is all, and then have our faith be weakened or destroyed, and believe we are not worthy when we do not make the firstfruits.  There is another much larger resurrection --- and it will be after all tribulation about seven years later on the Fall Biblical feast day called the Feast of Trumpets when Christ returns (known as the day no one knows the day or the hour, because as the first day of the seventh month it is based on observation of the visible crescent new moon).  For more information about the events leading to and around the Second Coming of Christ, please see the article:God’s Salvation Plan in the Biblical Feast Days’ under the sections on the Wavesheaf Offering, Pentecost, Feast of Trumpets, and Day of Atonement.



The establishment of the enemy’s Beast world government will ultimately be the reversal of the dispersion of the peoples at the Tower of Babel. And once unified again under just one ruler like Nimrod who controlled all peoples, yet again will man lose all his senses and defy God just as they did at Babel:

 

Genesis 11:

“….and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”   (AKJV)

 

 

 

For the nations will be foolish enough to attack the Lord Jesus Christ upon His glorious return:

 

Psalms 2:

1     Why do the nations rage, and the peoples plot a vain thing?

2     The kings of the earth take a stand, and the rulers take counsel together, against YAHWEH, and against his Anointed, saying,

3     "Let's break their bonds apart, and cast their cords from us."   (WEB)

 

Revelation 19:

11   Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True,

       and in righteousness He judges and makes war.

12   His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.

13   He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

14   And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.

15   Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. 

      And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

16   And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

17   Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, 

      "Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,

18   that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, 

      the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great."

19   And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse

      and against His army.

20   Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence,

     by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. 

      These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.

21   And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse.

     And all the birds were filled with their flesh.   (NKJV)

 

 

 

Nimrod built Babylon and its entire pagan system of worship and worldliness which has passed down to Rome as revealed in all its traditions and practices.  When the pilgrims left England, they left and fled from Babylon; they left and fled from Rome.


We are now seeing America being pulled back.  America is being reabsorbed into Babylon; America is being reabsorbed into Rome – the seat of the Beast and False Prophet.


However, even though this destruction of America is currently happening and it is getting worse and worse, faster and faster every day, God is calling out His chosen people to come out of Babylon
 
Revelation 18:

1     After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority,

     and the earth was illumined with his glory.

2     And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!

     She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.

3     "For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality,

      and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her,

      and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality."

4     I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins

     and receive of her plagues;

5     for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.(NASB)

 

 

 

God is calling you so that your eternal fate will not be like the fate of America.  The fate of

America is like the fate of all great nations throughout history: destined for destruction as part of

this world.  We will suffer and may even die for Christ, but we are called out of this world and

are not of this world, and will have an eternal inheritance with Him. However, we must be

sanctified in the truth:

 

John 15:

19   If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world,

     but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. (NKJV)

 John 17:

14   I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

15   I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

16   They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

17   Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.   (NKJV)


 

 

The reversal of what the founders of America did in breaking away from tyrannical rule will result in the essential removal of America as a stumbling block to the enemy’s goal to control all of the world’s nations. America will be changed. To change America into a dictatorship is to destroy it.  A dictatorial America is a destroyed America --- godless and useless, but believers must stand strong and endure.

 

 

So again, what is the bottom-line about America’s fate being and the end time rise of the Beast?

 

Namely, this:

 

When you see America fall from super-power status both militarily & economically to become a mere shell of itself – less than a weakling, and not able to defend its friends and itself from hostile nations bent on conquest, then the end is near. Even more, when you see America being changed politically and set up to be ruled by an increasingly centralized, authoritarian/totalitarian government, while the rights, freedoms, voice, and power of its citizens are reduced and removed, then know that the end is very near – at the door. The American demise will be both from its external enemies in warfare and also its internal enemies, an American power-hungry dictatorship – these both go together as part of the enemy’s one world government plan for the rise of the Beast.

 

Satan is succeeding, and will succeed, in bending and then breaking the resistance of those who dared defy him. He will destroy America in every way possible, from the outside and from the inside. In other words, he will succeed in transforming America into his image. This dismantling of America directly leads to the establishment of one government that rules the world, because the Beast will wage war against this weakened America, but we must understand this is really a spiritual war and there is no escaping this soon-coming tribulation.

 

It cannot be stressed enough: we MUST have our spiritual house in order and be right with our God.  It is the most important thing.

The fall of America will come from every which way and it will be sudden and swift, drastic and destructive beyond imagination.  And it is coming very around the corner – very, very soon.

 

 

 

 

Look up for our redemption draws near

 

To the people of the United States of America (and really the entire world), this is not being “pessimistic”, but it is being realistic. It is letting God’s Bible truth speak for itself. The rise of the Beast requires the removal of America as an obstacle to the enemy’s goal; we are all seeing the signs of America’s downfall even now. Great tribulation will come to all nations and the people of God will be persecuted. The rise of the Beast starts in earnest when America falls and once America does fall, the entire world will descend into the dark ages all over again.

 

Believers will not be taken away in a pre-tribulation rapture and avoid the tribulation to come. This is what Satan wants you to believe so you will be completely blindsided and unprepared when the downfall of America gets worse and worse, and faster and faster. It will be completely devastating and it is very, very near, close to the touch.

 

Many Americans are beginning to see what is unfolding and what will come. However, the great majority of Americans (believers and non-believers) are completely blind, and those who believe in a pre-tribulation rapture are deceived by wishful thinking. Trials and tribulation will come and it is unavoidable, but we must endure to the very end even to death.

 

For many Americans, the changing of America into the image of Satan and his Beast is the Great Tribulation: they will suffer and die because of it.  Those who survive the change will still be under persecution.

 

To all believers and non-believers, be spiritually prepared now so that your eternal salvation – the gift of eternal life to those who love God, is secure. Do not let the enemy continue to blind you and deceive you; do not let anyone take away your crown:

 

1 Corinthians 9:

24   Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win.

25   Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath,

     but we an imperishable.   (NASB)

 

James 1:

2     Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials,

3     knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.

4     And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

12   Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved,

     he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.   (NASB)

 

 

Do not be fooled by Satan; tribulation will fall upon all and this includes America (Protestants and everyone else alike). We must think: believers in other nations barely have God’s Word and fight to get it even at the cost of their lives, and they are persecuted and killed every day for their faith. This has happened all throughout history.

 

Meanwhile, Americans today can easily obtain God’s Word and many have God’s Word in abundance such as multiple Bibles in every home – and have the abundance of time and freedom to study and live by God’s Word, but do not do itHowever, this “luxury” and “freedom” to study God’s word will be a thing of the past – you must know and follow the Bible truth only while you still can.

 

This is made worse by the fact that America was founded by the bold act of breaking free from the chains of the enemy in order to pursue freedom to worship God as free men. Much of this hope and principle appears to have been wasted.

 

We must always recall that to the one whom much is given, much is expected and required:

 

Luke 12:

47   That servant, who knew his lord's will, and didn't prepare, nor do what he wanted, will be beaten with many stripes,

48   but he who didn't know, and did things worthy of stripes, will be beaten with few stripes.

     To whoever much is given, of him will much be required; and to whom much was entrusted, of him more will be asked.   (WEB)

 

 

This means even more is expected from Americans to abide by the Word of God and the failure to live up to the responsibility given will result in an even greater fall.  This means Americans are not exempt from tribulation – persecution and dying for the faith. Believers in the past and everywhere else have gone through this and so will America. It is not wise to think that America will not undergo what every other believer who has ever lived has. America (and every believer everywhere) will suffer and die as all believers have; be prepared and strengthen your faith to be ready, willing and able to die for it.  You must truly know your God – know and live by the faith once for all delivered to the saints.  You must know your Bible and not be deceived by false ancient traditions and your emotions. The skies are red and the clouds gathering.

 

 

America, please wake up! Tribulation is at the door.

 

 

Many people wonder when the end will come and it is a lot sooner than we think.  The salvation plan of God as outlined in His holy feast days provides us with the timeframe for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

The Bible tells us that at the Lord Jesus’ first coming almost 2000 years ago, the Spring holy feast days of God were literally walked in by Jesus and His disciples (Passover, Unleavened Bread, Wavesheaf Offering, Pentecost) which means that the Fall holy days (Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles, Last Great Day) will also be literally walked in by the Lord Jesus upon His return. 


The Bible indicates that on the Jubilee year which occurs every 50th year, the year after 7 consecutive sets of 7 Sabbath weeks of years (7 x 7 = 49 years) and is initiated by the Day of Atonement, there will be liberty throughout the Promised Land as everyone returns to their own possession which includes the very land itself; the Jubilee is also a year of Sabbath rest for the land.  The Bible makes it clear that Israel is still dispersed throughout the world and is yet to be completely gathered back to the land God gave her.  The Bible also indicates there will be a 1,000-year Kingdom of God when this happens.  This means that the Jubilee will likely be the start of the millennial kingdom and when Christ will likely return, when God will take back His land (this means the land will be divided and not in Israel’s possession, Joel 3:1-2; Zechariah 14:1-4) and all Israel will return to her possession – the land God had promised to her; and then meet, and finally know and accept, her Messiah.   


We see the signs of the times all around us and everyone feels Christ’s return is very, very soon.  When will the Antichrist arise?  When will the great tribulation begin?  When will Christ return? 


To know these things, we need to know when the next Jubilee is, because from that date we can know approximately when Christ will return.  Evidence points to the next and last Jubilee being 2043.  

 

But we must remember before His return on the Year of Jubilee in 2043 that there will be perilous times which lead to the years of Great Tribulation followed by the years of the Day of the LORD.  This means very soon we will see unparalleled catastrophic world events leading to the rise of the Antichrist (indeed, we have seen the beginnings of this already in the last several years).  So the most important thing is that we have to get right with God and Christ while we still can (the Word of God will be difficult to find when tribulation strikes) and the time is extremely short, because there will be years and years of tribulation leading up to His return, and we already see this unfolding in front of our eyes.


Note:  These years are this writer’s best estimate of what will happen in these end times and when Christ will return based on the belief that: 1)  He will return on a holy day of the year, the Feast of Trumpets, and  2)  He will return on a holy year, the year of Jubilee.  The Jubilee date is based on when He first came in fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy of the 70 weeks; please see the article: ‘The Prophesied Messiah: His arrival in Daniel 9’ ). Though we may not know exactly when He will return, we must understand that what Scripture seems to indicate about the timing of His return is part of following Christ’s command to discern the sign of the times of His return and be prepared spiritually for what is to come.

 

In addition to the ‘Prophesied Messiah arrival’ article, please also see the article: ‘God’s Salvation Plan in the Biblical Feast Days’ for more information about end time events and how the Sabbath years and Jubilee are the central focus and framework of these last events.  The Sabbath years and Jubilee are specifically discussed in the 'Prophesied Messiah arrival' article and the 'Biblical Feast Days' article in the section on the Day of Atonement.  All the Fall feast days: the Feast of Trumpets (the feast day He will likely return on), Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles, Eighth Day (and the late spring Pentecost leading the way as well) lay out the end time sequence of events.


Part of this beginning of sorrows is that the fall of America is imminent in the next couple of years, because it is the required component to the rise of the one world government and religious power of the Antichrist Beast kingdom.  At the same time, there will also be years of famine, pestilence, destructive wars and natural disasters.  Do not be lulled into a false sense of security and scoff at when He will return, because there will be great turmoil, persecution, death and destruction which begins very soon, in a few years.  And let us be reminded again that there is no pre-tribulation rapture so the destruction of America as we know it, will be the tribulation for Americans.


We should not fear, but be warned and be prepared to confront it and endure it, to both live and die if necessary for our faith.  Knowing is not just half the battle, it is the battle. This is not the time to fear or fight against the tide of what the Bible says, and we know, must surely come to pass before the heavens and earth are remade.  Now is the time to reach deep into ourselves and make sure we are right with our God and His Son, His Christ, and strengthen our faith for the spiritual war to come.


Remember this:  the Bible does not exhort us to be physically prepared for what is to come.  What is physical, though needed in the short run, only goes so far and will run out.  It is the spiritual preparation the Bible exhorts us to do – always leaning on God and the chief cornerstone, His only-begotten son Jesus.  Spiritual preparation is most important so we sow and reap what is everlasting.  We must build up our spiritual strength and never deny our God and Christ. 


In this world we suffer, but we know it is the Messiah who saves us forever and our reward is eternal and those who do evil will be punished. We know this to be true and will happen when the Lord Jesus returns:

 

John 15:

20   Remember the word that I said to you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me,

      they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. (AKJV)


2 Thessalonians 1:

6     since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you,

7     and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels,

8     in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey

     the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9     These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,

10   when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe,

(NKJV)



We must not be overcome with our emotions such as anger and fear, but walk the narrow path with the right to the tree of life to enter the eternal city, and not use hatred and force.  We must not become like those who despise us and pay back evil for evil, but again, we must overcome evil with good:


Romans 12:

14   Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

15   Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.

16   Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation.

17   Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men.

18   If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.

19   Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.

20   "But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head."

21    Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.    (NKJV)


Revelation 22:

12   "And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.

13   I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last."

14   Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

15   But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

16   "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star."

17   And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.    (NKJV)



As soldiers of Christ, we must stand tall and do our share and what we must to spread God’s truth and save lives for eternity. We must not use physical force at all, but the spiritual force that God provides. We must run the entire race to win:


2 Timothy 2:

3    You therefore must endure hardship, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.

4    No soldier on duty entangles himself in the affairs of life, that he may please him who enrolled him as a soldier.

5    Also, if anyone competes in athletics, he isn't crowned unless he has competed by the rules.

6    The farmers who labor must be the first to get a share of the crops.

7    Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things.

8    Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, of the seed of David, according to my Good News,

9    in which I suffer hardship to the point of chains as a criminal. But God's word isn't chained.   (WEB)

 

Hebrews 12:

1    Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

2    looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

3    For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.   (NKJV)

 

1 Corinthians 9:

24   Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win.

25   Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.

26   Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air;

27   but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.   (NASB)



The spiritual force that God provides through His son Jesus is His truth and love.  Even despite all that we have read here, we must not let our weak fleshly natures take control of us.  We must not hate those who would look to persecute and destroy us, but we must love them.  We must pray for them – that they may also know God’s truth and love and be able to stand in the Day of Judgment.  We must imitate Christ and love and forgive those who persecute and even kill us, just as Christ did.  As the only-begotten Son of God said Himself:

 

Luke 6:

27   "But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,

28   bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.

29   To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.

30   Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back.

31   And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.

32   "But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.

33   And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.

34   And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back.

35   But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.

36   Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.    (NKJV)



We must follow the example of the Lord Jesus the Messiah who even loved His torturers and killers to the end.  This is because Jesus came to atone for everyone’s sins – even the worst of men, to give everyone the gift of eternal life if they would only see the truth and take it.  This is what we must bless and pray for in our enemies – that they might know God’s truth and accept His Messiah and the gift of eternity He freely extends to all:


Luke 23:

33   And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left.

34   And Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." And they cast lots to divide his garments.   (ESV)



Believers (and un-believers who have very little time to know God and Christ) must discern the evil around us, but then also make the best of our time to use wisdom to prepare ourselves and fight the good fight of faith as we look ever forward to the day, even if we die, that we will be with God and the Lord Jesus forever in the perfect Kingdom of God:


Ephesians 5:

11   Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.

12   For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret.

13   But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible,

14   for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, "Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."

15   Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,

16   making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.

17   Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.   (ESV)


2 Peter 3:

12   looking for and earnestly desiring the coming of the day of God, which will cause the burning heavens to be dissolved, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?

13   But, according to his promise, we look for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.   (WEB)



Any suffering we have to endure in this world, even death, is nothing in comparison to the glory and joy that awaits us in eternity. Our hope is founded on eternal promises and an everlasting reward:


Revelation 12:

10   And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brothers is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11   And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives to the death.   (AKJV)


Hebrews 10:

32   But remember the former days, when, after being enlightened, you endured a great conflict of sufferings,

33   partly by being made a public spectacle through reproaches and tribulations, and partly by becoming sharers with those who were so treated.

34   For you showed sympathy to the prisoners and accepted joyfully the seizure of your property, knowing that you have for yourselves a better possession and a lasting one.

35   Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.

36   For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.

37   For yet in a very little while, He who is coming will come, and will not delay.

38   But My righteous one shall live by faith; And if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.

39   But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.   (NASB)


Comment:  Note how Scripture specifically mentions they will come not just for believers but also their property, but we must take it as faithful believers who remain confident in our great reward.



The pilgrims once ventured out to find a new land to call home and in this world it is called America. However, though we must live here in this world as it is now, it is not our true home. As true pilgrims who seek the things above in our call in Christ, we do not look toward the physical and this world, but we endure this world and look toward the eternal city God has prepared for us:


Colossians 3:

1   If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

2    Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.    (NKJV)


Hebrews 11:

8     By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing where he went.

9     By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

10   For he looked for a city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.


13   These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

14   For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.

15   And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from where they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.

16   But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: why God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he has prepared for them a city.    (AKJV)

 


It is our greatest hope and our greatest joy. A reward we do not deserve, but was purchased for us by the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ:


Revelation 21:

1    And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

2    And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3    And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

4    And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

5    And he that sat on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said to me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

6    And he said to me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him that is thirsty of the fountain of the water of life freely.

7    He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.   (AKJV)



We must stand tall because our redemption draws near. We must be strong in the Lord Jesus Christ who is our strength and will see us through to the end that we will overcome all things. We must look to Christ and His father God for refuge through the difficult times to come and know that no matter what happens, the suffering and death we might face now is nothing compared to the glory of what awaits for us:  


Psalms 91:

1    He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2     I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust."

3    Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.

4    He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

5    You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

6    Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

7    A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.

8    Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.

9    Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

10   No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;

11   For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.

12   In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

13   You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

14   "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

15    He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.

16   With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation."   (NKJV)


Luke 21:

28   Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near."   (NKJV)

 

Philippians 4:

13   I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.   (AKJV)


John 16:

33   "These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation,

     but take courage; I have overcome the world."   (NASB)


Romans 8:

16   The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,

17   and if children, then heirs --- heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

18   For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

19   For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

20   For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope;

21   because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

22   For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.

23   Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.

24   For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?

25   But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.   (NKJV)

 


All believers in God and His son, Jesus the Christ, will face tribulation and they must know the truth. Please go through this site and test everything against the words of the Bible. We must seek God’s truth – all of it, and we must know it and live it. We must contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints. It is the truth that will set us free. We must know the truth to be able to stand in the day of decision and not be deceived by the enemy.


If you do not believe in the God of the Bible and the salvation by the atonement and resurrection of the Messiah, His son Jesus, there is still time to know and live this truth that was once for all delivered.  There is still time, but very, very precious little time left.  In the coming few years, America will be completely changed into its own worst enemy, under attack by enemies internal and external.


The days of apostasy and complete moral social decay are soon upon us as men turn away from God and toward themselves and their plans and pleasures; and Bible truth, the word of God will be hard to come by as information outlets are controlled by the government, Bible truth persecuted and society is no longer free:


2 Timothy 3:

1    But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:

2    For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3    unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,

4    traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,

5    having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!    (NKJV)


Amos 8:

11    " Behold, the days are coming," says the Lord GOD, " That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD.

12   They shall wander from sea to sea, And from north to east; They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the LORD, But shall not find it.    (NKJV)



This has absolutely nothing to do with politics or any worldly thing.  This is about war in spiritual places where the enemy Satan will remove America as an obstacle to establishing his Antichrist one world government and religion Beast kingdom.  America will no longer be a light on a hill, but instead its light will be dimmed as in a dungeon.  America and all the nations of the world cannot and will not be allies with Israel, but turn against her.  But God says those who bless Israel will be blessed, and those who curse Israel will be cursed. 


As these forces are bending and changing America into the image of the Beast at this very moment, we must individually come to know God and His Messiah and build up our own spiritual strength to withstand the enemy so he cannot steal the truth and gift of eternal life away from us.  He was a murderer and liar from the beginning – we must not be deceived by him, but come to know God in Christ who saves us and loves us:


John 8:

44   "You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.    (NASB)



This is about the way, the truth and the life that is only in the Bible – God and His son Jesus.  This is about the free gift of eternal salvation that God gives to all who come to Him and His son Jesus in faith.  This is about the purpose of our lives and our final destiny – eternal life with the God who created us and loves us, and who has redeemed mankind who is fallen in sin, through His son Jesus.  When Jesus returns, will you hear His voice?  Are you willing to hear His voice now?

 

John 8:

16   For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

17    For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

18    "He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

19    And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

20    For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.

21    But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God."    (NKJV)


John 5:

24   "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

25    "Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.

26    "For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He gave to the Son also to have life in Himself;

27    and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man.

28    "Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice,

29    and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.    (NASB)

 

John 10:

26   "But you do not believe because you are not of My sheep.

27    "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;

28   and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.   (NASB)



Though we are fallen in sin, God has made the way for us to be reconciled to Him, but He will not force us. This way is faith in the atoning work and resurrection of His son, the Messiah, Jesus.  He has overcome sin, death and the enemy, so that we may be restored into the relationship with God we were always meant to have; that we may walk again with Him side by side as a loving Father to His loving child:

 

1 Corinthians 15:

35   But someone will say, "How are the dead raised? And with what kind of body do they come?"

36    You fool! That which you sow does not come to life unless it dies;

37    and that which you sow, you do not sow the body which is to be, but a bare grain, perhaps of wheat or of something else.

38    But God gives it a body just as He wished, and to each of the seeds a body of its own.

39    All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another flesh of birds, and another of fish.

40   There are also heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is one, and the glory of the earthly is another.

41    There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory.

42    So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown a perishable body, it is raised an imperishable body;

43    it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;

44    it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.

45    So also it is written, "The first man, Adam, became a living soul." The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

46    However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual.

47    The first man is from the earth, earthy; the second man is from heaven.

48    As is the earthy, so also are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, so also are those who are heavenly.

49    Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly.

50    Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.

51    Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed,

52    in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

53    For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.

54    But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, "Death is swallowed up in victory.

55    "O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?"    (NASB)         

 

1 Thessalonians 4:

13   But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope.

14    For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.

15    For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.

16    For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

17    Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.

18    Therefore comfort one another with these words.    (NASB)



Jesus has overcome sin, death and the enemy, and we can overcome by His strength.


But we MUST know the truth.  The truth is in the Bible only, the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints, and not the traditions, philosophies and religions of men. This is a WARNING of what is happening to America and will be complete in a matter of years which paves the way for chaos on a global scale and the rise of the Antichrist.  This is a WARNING for everyone that time is very short and we must make the most of time – to get ourselves spiritually right with the one true God and His son Jesus the Messiah: 

 

Ephesians 5:

15   Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,

16    making the most of your time, because the days are evil.

17    So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.    (NASB)



IT CANNOT BE STRESSED ENOUGH HOW IMMINENTLY CLOSE WE ARE TO THE WORST AND MOST DEADLY SPIRITUAL DANGER EVER.  SEEK GOD WHILE YOU STILL CAN:


Isaiah 55:

6    Seek the LORD while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near.

7     Let the wicked forsake his way And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the LORD, And He will have compassion on him, And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.   (NASB)



AMERICA (AND THE WORLD) MUST WAKE UP………BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.  


WE ARE ALMOST OUT OF TIME.



With the last several years, it is only confirmed that the dismantling of America which was already in motion the last few decades will now accelerate greatly and proceed completely in earnest – there are now no restrictions and more space to do so.  If things look bad now, know that they are going to get much, much worse.  The next couple of years will see the utter decline and change in America in all aspects:  socially (morally), economically, politically, and militarily – and everything in this article will come to pass.  This total decline with a major impact on any one or a combination of these aspects will lead or cause the others to fall as well; for example, if there is a major terrorist/other attack or natural catastrophe, or a devastating hit upon the economy such as if trust in the U.S. and its dollar falls drastically/there is a financial collapse.


Again, this is not about politics.  Those who have voted for the winner of the election will be victims of this changed America just as everyone else will be.  There is no “us vs. them”, because we are all just people who need to know the truth which sets us free.  This is all about seeing the signs of one world government and how this rule of the end-time Beast will arise, and indicators show it begins with the taking down of America.


Let us be reminded that the upcoming years will be troublesome times for EVERYONE and it begins with America first, because America must be changed and removed as an obstacle to total chaos that brings on the one world government (just as planned by this world’s powers that be).  Absolutely NO ONE will escape suffering and death.  It is only a question of who and what you will suffer and die for, which must be according to God’s Bible truth only, and nothing else will do.

 


With the Sabbath years/first year of new cycles of 2014/15, 2021/22, 2028/29, 2035/36, 2042 counting down to the final Jubilee of 2043 and the Antichrist already being in power in 2026 and likely before, this means that the events between now and 2026 will be full of tribulation with worldwide full-scale catastrophe starting in America first and significant events will occur in 2015, the 1st year of a new Sabbath cycle before the year ends (remember, a Biblical year begins near Spring so it will be March/April 2015 to March/April 2016). These major events in 2015/2016 will rearrange the global order and set up the upcoming catastrophic events Christ prophesied about that will only continue and worsen throughout the Sabbath cycle and subsequent ones leading to His return – the war, famine, pestilence, natural disasters, and false messiahs which are the beginning of sorrows, and the persecution, and destruction upon the world that follows.  All this will lead up to even worse tribulation with the Antichrist revealing himself with the setting up of the abomination of desolation:


Matthew 24:

3    Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?"

4    And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no one deceives you.

5    For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many.

6    And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7    For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.

8    All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9    "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake.

10   And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.

11   Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.

12   And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

13   But he who endures to the end shall be saved.

14   And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

15   "Therefore when you see the 'abomination of desolation,' spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place" (whoever reads, let him understand),

16   "then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

17   Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house.

18   And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes.

19   But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!

20   And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath.

21   For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22   And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened.

23   "Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or 'There!' do not believe it.

24   For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

25   See, I have told you beforehand.

26   "Therefore if they say to you, 'Look, He is in the desert!' do not go out; or 'Look, He is in the inner rooms!' do not believe it.

27   For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

28   For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.    (NKJV)



The Lord Jesus fulfilling in Himself the annual Biblical holy days/feasts such as the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement and Feast of Tabernacles, and the Bible’s heavy emphasis on the 7-year Sabbaths and the Jubilee concerning the Lord Jesus’ return strongly indicates that all Bible believers should be observing these years in addition to the Biblical weekly and annual holy days/feasts. 


Again, please read the article: ‘Signs of the Rise of the Beast’ which goes together with this article you are reading and the article ‘God’s Salvation Plan in the Biblical Feast Days’.



With this chaos beginning all-out and unrestrained in America first, this means it will come upon America within only the next couple of years and then escalate worldwide.


We are all “in the same boat”, so this is a FINAL WARNING to everyone that we must prepare to preserve our lives – not physically, but spiritually which is eternal.  The only way to have our life preserved eternally, is to seek, know and live the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints – nothing added to it and nothing taken away.  Our eternal salvation is at stake.


Again, you must be prepared and strengthened spiritually NOW, because it is the most important thing.  Advanced warning of problems to come is just to prepare you to be spiritually strong instead of panicking when things go wrong.  We must prepare ourselves spiritually and not succumb to the flesh; we must love and forgive those who harm us so that they may know the truth as we do.  So please also read the other articles on this site to contend earnestly for and return to the faith once for all delivered to the saints which should be the number one priority for you and your family.  God wants a faithful and holy obedient people who worship in spirit and truth:

 

John 4:

23   "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.

24   "God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."    (NASB)



I know this may be a lot to consider, but the time is indeed really, really short, so we must get our spiritual house in order as soon as possible.  We must earnestly seek God’s truth, and truly live by the word of God, the Bible only.  We must not be afraid and run away from it, but must know and accept God’s truth as the most important thing and above all, because God is truth and God is above all.  To live, now and forever, in a close and loving relationship with Him which we were always meant to have is the purpose of our lives.  He gave us His all – His son, to bring us back to Him, so it is not too much to ask to be and live the way that pleases Him; we must be willing to live by God’s truth regardless of the cost.


What is also true is that the Internet will not last long and will very soon be completely controlled or restricted by the government – both nationally and internationally.  We at SeekGodsTruth.com are trying to warn the world of what is to come, and to let everyone know that the faith God gave us – which is unchanged and is the faith once for all delivered to the saints, is what will prepare and save us for all eternity.  We are warning everyone that WE MUST PREPARE NOW SPIRITUALLY WHILE WE STILL CAN.


Remember, our battle is not against flesh and blood (the physical or people), but against dark spiritual forces (Ephesians 6:10-17).

 


So we ask you to PLEASE spread the word to as many people as you can, and let everyone know about SeekGodsTruth.com.  Our salvation: eternal life with God and Christ who loves us so much, is too precious to throw away.  God seeks worshippers in spirit and truth, and His word is truth – the truth that makes us free.  Please spread the word about SeekGodsTruth.com so people know the true and eternal freedom that comes from God and His word only.   

 


May God bless you with His truth.


  


Please also see the articles in the other sections of this website which speaks of what the faith once for all delivered to the saints really is – it is the truth which sets us free; sections such as: Is it the True Church?’, The Gospel of God’, ‘The Law of God’, The Bible Truth about Death.   Also see the article: The Name of God and Messiah, because we should know the vital truth of the real names of our God and Messiah.
