Is there order in the universe? Is there a divine intelligence behind it all? Is there a God who has intervened in history, and will he do it again soon? History has shown that there is a supernatural power at work, which Christians believe is God, the creator and sustainer of the universe. We are told in his written communication to mankind, known as the Bible that "Of old you did found the earth; and the heavens are the work of your hands." (Psalm 102: 25) Colossians 1:17 informs us that God "is before all things, and in Him all things hold together."
The godless culture and public school system has programmed people to believe that there is no divine creator and sustainer, or order in the universe. Psalm 103;19 says "The Lord has established His throne in the heavens; and His sovereignty rules over all." Isaiah 66:1 provides a somewhat humorous picture where God says,"Heaven is my throne, and the earth is My footstool." If the prophecy of the four blood moons plays out as expected beginning April 15, 2014, the timing of these lunar eclipses occurring on Jewish holy days, which is way beyond coincidence, it will be a demonstration of God's intervention and power. It will also be a sign for people to wake up to God's coming judgement and plea for people to return to Him.
If God is so much in control of the world, then why does so much seem to be out of control? There is a simple answer to that question unless one refuses to accept the truth. Mankind has a sin nature, which is a tendency to do wrong and to turn away from God, as well as not being able to break free from the bondage of sin. Does one ever have to train their kids to do wrong? No, they have a natural inclination from the time they are born. There is a sin nature inherited from Adam and Eve coupled with free will. We are not puppets on the string of God. The sinful nature of mankind coupled with this free will has resulted in the world getting out of control. Isaiah 66: 3-4 sums it up this way. "...they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations. So I will choose their punishments, and I will bring on them what they dread. Because I called, but no one answered; I spoke, but they did not listen..." God has allowed individuals to reap the consequences of their godless actions.
The first chapter of Romans also shows this downward spiral of moving away from God, and God allowing mankind to have free will. Within this chapter it says that people have suppressed the truth and are without excuse. They have not honored God as God. Their foolish hearts have become darkened. The wise have become like fools. They have exchanged the truth of God for a lie and have not seen fit to acknowledge him. As a result, it says three times in the chapter, that God "gave them over" to their desires.
Has there been a pattern throughout biblical history of God allowing mankind to turn away from him and to bear the consequences, while at the same time God has been extending his loving arm of grace to those who decide to turn to him, thereby escaping judgement? Yes, it was true in the Garden of Eden, at the time of Noah and the flood, in Sodom and Gomorrah, and with the people of lsrael as they fled from the Egyptians. The list could go on and on. Thousands of years later Jesus intervened by being born to the virgin Mary and 33 years later dying on the cross and rising from the dead.
Is there going to be some kind of divine intervention in the affairs of the world and in individual lives? Let's certainly hope so, seeing the state the world is in. Yes, based on biblical historical precedence and Bible prophecy, all of which has been fulfilled up to this point, and some of which is being fulfilled right now in our current events, God is going to intervene again, bringing judgement to those who refuse to acknowledge him and escape to those who do. I mean, he is going to do something very dramatic. There are definitely going to be some changes taking place. It will be like God coming out to center stage and saying "Here I am. See what I have just done." I am talking about events that will occur very soon right under our noses and looking at us square in the face, but sadly enough, there will still be those who willfully reject the truth.
In the middle of all of this, God is looking for those whose heart is truly seeking him, it says in II Chronicles 16:9. Are you one who is truly seeking God? Are you one who is going to allow God to intervene in your life? Turn your life over to the One who has everything under control.

America is already under judgment. This message would not fly in its churches today. Look at the evil, the murders, the mass killings, the rebellion and arrogance. Look at the slide from morality to immorality. We are now calling evil good and good evil just as it was predicted. Having given the Lord the right foot of fellowship, He is now calling many to salvation before He removes His presence from this country entirely, as we as a nation have asked for. Please people, I implore you, get right with God (repent, turn from sins, get saved, born again). 2 Cor 6:2 "Behold NOW is the day of salvation". If you keep putting it off, your heart hardens and later you are less inclined to RECEIVE the Lord. John 1:12 says "To as many received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God".. So what does that mean? If they become a child of God after receiving Him, what was one before? The answer... not a child of God. When you become a child of His (born again) you now belong to the family by adoption and you have an inheritance with Christ, a place at the family table! In Noah's days, anyone could have joined Noah and his family in the ark and been saved from the disaster. Instead they laughed at and mocked him. Will you do likewise today and not only miss the salvation of the Lord but then by default place yourself in a position of judgment and God's wrath? God does not want this but it is your choice. John 3:18 "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". John 3:36 " He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” 1 Timothy 2:3-5 " For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all..."
