The world is indeed careening closer to Armageddon. There is no doubt. Not only do we have enemies abroad, it seems within this nation, people hate each other. In California, Mexican radicals are saying something to the effect that we “don’t know how radical they are”. These groups openly avow their Mexican heritage. That is not bad at all. The problem is they want to erase whites and the American’s government’s hold on California and related states.
In Rhode Island more of this kind of hatred is coming out. People in providence who signed a petition against gay marriage are facing manure in their front yards. Along with this, they are accosted in the grocery stores and called bigots or other names. We also see the rise of Militant blacks who would give anything to destroy what they see as traditional Northern white hold on this country.
As we move forward towards Armegeddon, many have seen Muslim terroists as a problem. They do present a problem, but we also have an increasing hatred and dislike for each other in this nation. I have always said if this nation goes down, by this I mean when our Nation and society as we have known it changes, then that change will bring far more destructive forces into play than when Russia fell. Russia still survives, but the chaos that followed was a tough act. America, however, will see far more hatred and chao’s if she falls. When this fall occurs, and it will, freedoms will be erased. With this, we will see martial law, troops from the European Union and the United Nations on our streets. We will see the end of gun laws, freedom of speech, and the Mark of the beast will be close at hand.
With all this we will see civil war within the states. I believe this war will be one between gangs of Mexicans, Radical Black groups, White supremicist’s, Muslims , and others. The chao’s will be unprecendented. There will be no freedoms, safety, or the American way of life. It will be all gone. I believe these things are imminent and will occur. Within all these events, there will be nuclear attacks, and even more death in America. Why do I say all this? Because as a nation, we have already fallen Spiritually. What had basic Judeao-Christian beliefs are falling. What used to be the Gospel preached with the need for repentance has been replaced by “prosperity teachings” and a virulent unscriptural presentation of the “gospel message”. In short, while America has more churches, ministers, seminaries, bible schools, and related than any nation on earth, we still purvey more than 50% of all pornography worldwide. We still have aborted millions of lives and seek to destroy more human life. We are also propagating a “new world order” christian theology which is unscriptural.
All of this spells the end times. The end is coming, but not before “many desolations” are to come as Daniel 9:26 says.
Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
It is then, after the official appearance and starting reign of the “son of perdition” in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2, that these desolations or destructions will come. These are described in Revelation chapter six to chapter 21 when the Kingdom of God is birthed.
Moreover, as we live all this out, many hearts will fear. People will walk away from the traditional beliefs and hold on to the new appearance of this Apostle of Satan, the Anti-christ. He will bring in delusions so convincing that the world believes them. Along with his appearance will be signs, wonders, and power. He will be unconquerable, invinceable, and will cause the whole world to worship him. He will erase all religions to worship him or they will die. I short, this is hell week on earth, only it is much longer.
I urge you therefore, while you are enjoying life and watching the bombs falling around Israel and the middle east, just remember, you are next. The stage is set, it is coming. You believe in God, the test that is coming will prove it. The devils believe and they tremble. Americans don’t believe and don’t tremble either. Our pride, wicked ways, and godlessness will bring us down. You say the muslim terroists are worse. Yes they are. But being wicked and far more terrible did not stop God from sending the Chaldeans upon Israel or the Babylonians upon Jerusalem. When Habakkuk asked God why he was sending a far worse and evil nation upon His country to judge it, God told him “the just shall walk by faith”.
The Lord Telling Habakkuk he was sending a nation more wicked upon his nation for judgment :Habakkuk 1:6
Habakkuk asking why the Lord would allow men who were wicked to devour the righteous :Habakkuk 1:13
Habakkuk makes up his mind he would be reproved by God so he was going to wait for an answer:Habakkuk 2:1
The Lord Told Him “the just shall live by faith” :Habakkuk 2:3-4
Habakkuk’s bottom line faith. He understood the Lord works in the affairs of men. It is not up to us to understand all things, but to walk by faith, trusting in the Lord no matter what:Habakkuk 3:17 -19
We for the most part have had TV preachers, Radio preachers, and pastors tell us we will not see any suffering or trouble. We have had an “americanized gospel” preached to us for one hundred years or more. Do you really know what’s going to happen? Are you really going to miss all the trouble?
What should you do as a believer?
1. Watch and Pray you will be counted worthy to escape all these things and to stand before the Son of Man.
Luke 21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
2. To do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God
Micah 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
3. Look to the Lord and Wait for him
Micah 7:7 ¶Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me
4. Seek The Lord and His righteousness|you may be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger
Zephaniah 2:3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.
5. Do not sleep as others but watch and be sober
1 Thessalonians 5:6-11 ¶Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
¶Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
6. Through Much Tribulation You must enter the Kingdom of God
Acts 14:22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
7. Realize that you overcome by the blood of the Lamb (saving faith in Jesus Christ and his work), word of your testimony (saying what you believe about Christ and what he has done for you outloud to others), and you love not your lives unto the death (no matter what keep this faith to death, period).
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
