Is God Finished With America… If So Then Why Go To Church ?
by Lyle Rapacki
We are at a point in time where we are not waiting on God; instead, He is waiting on us! Yes…the Creator of the Universe, the Eternal God, is waiting for us to get to a place where we will learn that the best-made plans of man and government will not remove the obstacles and threats coming our way. The OLAM…the God who inhabits eternity, the Ancient of Days – but not old; the God who transcends time and is boundless, who lives in the ever present, the Creating Force of the Universe is waiting on us! God is in the eternal NOW…He is the Great I AM! He knows our problems before we ask, and our ignorance in asking…He is waiting.
Steadily Americans from diverse places are becoming paralyzing scared. Creeping fear over the failing economy, over myriads of threats coming to our once shining nation on a hill, whose beems of light and hope shined on countries across the world to see their own futures a little safer and better; well our Nation’s shining light is much dimmer today. Adding to American’s fears are the announcements of pending Presidential Executive Orders; outlawing this or that, granting this or that, taking away this or that, redefining and transforming America into a country never, ever intended by our Forefathers! Yet God waits for man to come and announce the truth written in God’s Word – the Bible, rather than continue to fight on his own power and initiative.
America…hear me as I share God’s truth:
Executive Orders written and declared by the president do NOT define our future…God’s Word defines our future! Executive Orders by a president do NOT define who we are as a nation…God does! Executive Orders spoken by a president do NOT define who we are as a people…God declares who we are by His abiding in us and our demonstrating the same in Him! The Creative Force of the Universe; the same force from Heaven that led to the birth of this Nation will define our future. That same Creative Force, the Great I AM and Ancient of Days – but not old is waiting for YOU to decide whom will you believe; God or man? You have to choose.
As the governments of man come near to collapsing the government of God is taking form and coming into His greatness for this generation. For the plans of man shall not pervail, for the governments of man have forsaken the Creator of Government, the Lord God Himself! Therefore the best layed plans of man shall not prevail against the growing dilemmas allowed by God to bring a whirlwind of cleaning and separating; a whirlwind meant to pull apart the wheat from the schaff, and to leave a useable and clean remnant. Who can stand against this whirlwind; who can prevail against this coming force of fury and fire? For the whirlwind of the Creator of the Universe is on its’ way to bring a blazing fire burning and destroying all who have come against the Great OLAM, the Eternal God and His People who are called by His Name. It will be the Lord God Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth who will guard those called by His Name and have responded; those who will search for protection in Him, and not in government or the systems of man.
The God of all Creation is NOT finished with America. He foreknew these days of trial and tribulation were coming. The God of Eternity who lives in the ever present creates solutions before problems exist. He created the Cross before the Fall of man. He knew your name before you even existed. He interceded for Peter before Peter was even tempted. The Mighty and Everlasting God is bigger than our mistakes or even the mistakes of a nation. He is the Lord high and lifted up who looks ahead and has the answer, has the way, has the plan that can come into reality. OLAM oversees the ages. If the Great I AM is not finished with America, then why are so many resigned to just waiting around for the Rapture? Why have so many in the church given up and have convinced themselves they really can’t make a difference in the lives of man or government or the challenges faces our country? Where is the excitement and firm conviction that God is about to introduce His Plan in these End Days, and He desires all who know Him personally as Lord and Savior to come aboard for the ride of the centuries – the establishing of a Victorious Eschatology!
While the government and society of America is leading toward being finished with God, God is NOT finished with America! The coming biblical season will find the kingdom of God growing and advancing throughout the earth; a Remnant Church will rise in unity, maturity, and glory before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Remnant Church of the Lord will move ahead with courage, authority and excitement making disciples throughout the nations of the world as the Lord instructed His Disciples. Are you a disciple? Are you finished and just waiting to be taken out of here? I pray not…for you will miss what the Apostles would loved to have seen, the preparing of the way of the Lord’s Return!

Trust In God But Obey Him
by Pastor Lee S Gliddon Jr
All too many Pastors teach their followers to, “Trust in God and He will handle everything.”
This is the message all too many hear and by doing nothing they disobey God!
Look at the many men that trusted in God to lead them as they obeyed His wishes.
Noah – Lot – Joseph
Noah was waned of an impending flood. He obeyed God and built an ark.
Lot was warned of the impending destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah . He fled as God instructed.
Joseph was warned of an impending famine, He obeyed God as he prepared by overseeing the construction of store houses to house foodstuffs for the people.
Not a single one of these three men doubted God’s plan and each used his God given talents to fulfill God’s wishes.
We should see the similarities between these three men of the Old Testament and our current situation. If you are one that studies God’s Word, the Bible, then you have read and understood the warnings of what lies ahead for us and our descendants.
Revelation 1: 1 The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, 2 who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.
In this most prophetic Book we are made aware of the many impending dangers looming before us.
I am convinced that Satan, in consort of his minions at work as they are engineering global calamities. The impending economic collapse, wars and severe famine are the tools they are using to accomplish their foul deed.
Imagine that someone came along that restored peace, restored economic values as well as ending a famine. It would follow that such a person would declare himself as worthy of worship!
Proverbs 13: 13 Whoever scorns instruction will pay for it, but whoever respects a command is rewarded.
In studying the Book of Revelation we see the prophesies respecting world calamity. I delivered a series of sermons wherein I gave interpretations of the many prophesies and am now adding interpretations to allow more understanding. In that manner I am fulfilling God’s command of giving instruction whereby you may use your talents to the benefit of the Most High God.
Deuteronomy 4: 5 See, I have taught you decrees and laws as the LORD my God commanded me, so that you may follow them in the land you are entering to take possession of it. 6 Observe them carefully, for this will show your wisdom and understanding to the nations, who will hear about all these decrees and say, “Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.”
To regress a bit I wish to remind you of the many warnings I have presented as I wrote of the many ‘feel good’ sermons delivered by Pastors that are voiced to make their followers think themselves as Christian. They tell their congregations what is thought to please them thereby adding to their tithes and style of living.
That is not my desire! My desire is to teach you God’s truths, His Gospels, His love and how we must repent to Him and obey His teachings.
2 Peter 3: 3 Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. 4 They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.”
In this Scripture Peter speaks of the “scoffers.” You are seeing them yourself! They are the Pastors and congregations that fail to teach or learn the necessity of repentance and pursue material things. They accept homosexuality as acceptable, divorce as ‘ho hum’ and as they claim to be Christian, are not by any stretch of the imagination!
The true Christians are those that watch their ways taking care to obey God. They heed the words of God as related by His prophets and live in a manner so as to honor Him and set an example for any that they voice the words, I am Christian!
The many people that claim to be Christian and have been and are being taught that their salvation is guaranteed by the crucifixion of Jesus Christ will be sadly surprised when they face their Maker. They rely on their understandings to rely on their salvation. These are the ones you must not rely upon as you enter into the Last Days God has allowed to be prophesized. Many are the ‘false teachers’ written about in God’s Word and many who lay claim to being God Himself or equal to Him.
Revelation 14: 12 This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of God who keep his commands and remain faithful to Jesus.
Please read the words, “keep His commands,” and obey Him.
Matthew 19: 17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.” 18 “Which ones?” he inquired. Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, 19 honor your father and mother,’[c] and ‘love your neighbor as yourself”
Jesus Himself voiced these words!
There is a sad awakening for those that do not heed God’s Word in obeying Him as well as listening to the words of His prophets. As the Last Days come to pass there will be all to many that refuse to listen and continue to deny Him.
Revelation 21: 8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
In ensuing sermons I wish to tell you of God’s Word as related to what is to pass. As I have said before and say again, be ever alert watching for His return. Keep Him foremost in your mind and pray for people to whom you talk asking that their minds be open to His Word and that He water the seed you have sown!
Father in Heaven, Lord Most High, please hear our prayer. We praise You and seek to worship You. You are our God, our Creator and our reason for being. All glory is Yours O Lord and we thank You for all you do for us.
Lord, You have revealed things which we seek to learn of as we wish to be Your people, Your servants and worthy of Your love. Please Lord, grant us the strength to use the talents You have bestowed upon us to bring others to Your Court. Keep us strong in purpose and mindful of our obligations to You.
Enlighten us O Lord allowing us the wisdom to understand Your revelations as You have made known in the Bible we read and study. Allow us the understanding to teach others of Your prophesies therein. We seek to serve and obey You Lord and to gain Your presence when we leave this earthly life.
We ask that You bless us, hear us and protect us as we seek to do Your bidding as You direct. You are our God and there is no other.
In Jesus Name we pray, who is One with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever,
Amen, amen and amen.
In the Book of Revelation there is the mention of Wormwood.
Revelation 8: 10 The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.
As I teach out of the New International Version of God’s Word I viewed several other versions of our Bible and learned that ‘wormwood’ describes bitterness as well as the name of ‘a great star.
Were a ‘star’ to move so as to disturb the earths position in our solar system there might be debris that falls from the ‘star’ thereby poisoning waters all across the world.
Let’s consider the time frame within which God’s Word was revealed to man. Any heavenly body that shown in the night sky (other than the moon) was thought to be a star. Even to this day we see Jupiter and Venus in the night sky and think each to be a star. It would not be a real stretch of the imagination to see Wormwood as a planet rather than a star. This could be the something that, in passing closely to earth, would create widespread destruction. That planet’s gravitational pull could even accomplish the same destruction.
There are educated men that claim that a planet exists within our solar system that revolves around our sun as earth does. This planet, yet named, does not orbit in the same manner earth does but is a bit erratic in its orbit. I tell you this as there are prophesies that tell of earthquakes, rains of fire, mountains thrown into the sea as well as other destructive events.
Consider the effect to our planet if a planet were to pass close enough to cause a gravitational pull that caused earthquakes. That planet could cause earthquakes, meteorites, some rather large, to ‘rain’ down as if ‘fire’ were falling all about..
This might sound like science fiction to you but allow me to assure you God’s Word tells of catastrophic events that defy imagination but will occur! Whether a previously unseen or unknown planet or other heavenly body causes disruption and havoc to this world, God has said this is to happen.
Revelation 6: 12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14 The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Joel 2: 30 I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 31 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
This is not to be confused with the very end of the tribulation as at that time the moon gives no light at all!
Matthew 24: 29 “Immediately after the distress of those days “‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’
The events set forth in Matthew immediately preceded the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
Let us now regress to the words of Revelation as well as those of Joel.
A blackened sky can be seen as the results of fires and smoke. Much like the fires intentionally set by Saddam Hussein during the Gulf War as he set oil wells afire there was a huge volume of smoke that blackened the sky. It is difficult to imagine the fires that would produce enough smoke to cover the entire world!
A red moon can be equated to a lunar eclipse just as stars falling to earth seen as meteorites.
The most difficult imaginations of all are: The great numbers of homeless; the lack of communications; no running water; no electricity; travel troubles, famine and civil unrest, rioting, looting and chaos!
Then there are, by all accounts of the Bible, a number of deaths beyond imagination. The world population is an estimated 6.5 billion and to think of 3.25 billion dying in a relatively short span of time boggles the mind.
Brothers and sisters this earth is in one state of disarray and there seems to be no hope on the horizon. It is our duty to be the servants of God that begin to realize ours is of doing His will be utilizing every talent He has bestowed upon us. This means that we are to oppose evil, wickedness, non-believers and any that oppose Him. We must stand up for Him when called on and if we must call on Him for strength, do so with faith that He will hear our request.
There are those that claim to be Christian that openly oppose war as well as the military. That is abysmal as throughout God’s Word there are times when God positioned Himself at the head of an army. Our Lord and Savior performed a miracle for a military leader without hesitation. With that in mind there may be a time whereby physical confrontation may be necessary to survive.
If you are to survive the destructive forces that are to come then you must keep your trust in the Lord knowing that He has created you at a time when He knew you were His servant who would not fail Him!
Luke 21: 34 “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35 For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
It is our duty as well as our responsibility to be on our best Christian acting lifestyles. You never know just when He will begin the Last Days actions. He may be waiting to see you oppose the evils presented. He may be waiting for a strong Christian to oppose the wicked and move His time to a later date. He has charged us with spreading the Good News and although difficult at times think of what someone, if not you, will face at a time in the future!
For any that continue to believe in the ‘Rapture’ I pray that you consider the words of Peter
2 Peter 3: 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.
If you really read and understand you see that God is being patient knowing many will repent. When He is satisfied in that number the end will come SUDDENLY!
Abba, Father, we come to You as we seek Your attention in allowing us to praise and worship You. There are so many things that are at Your control that we do not really know how to control and leave it to You and Your powers. Lord, You are our El Gibbor, our Rock and the source of our Strength. Take us under Your Mighty Wings and comfort us.
You have given us men and women who have prophesied to us telling us of the terrible times ahead. Lord, whether those times are to be within our days on earth or in days after we come to You, we ask that You be ever merciful to us and or our descendants. Grant any that take You as their God the strength and wisdom to survive the rigors and hardship of those days. Enlighten their hearts and minds and be with them. Guide and shower Your love and mercies upon them.
Just as we pray for our descendants we pray for ourselves. May we always be in Your grace.
We also ask that You shower Your love and mercies upon our men and women in the military forces. As our Yahweh Saoboth, King of the angels, please \send them to watch over and protect those who look to You for their protection.
These things we pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, who is One with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever,
Amen, amen and amen
As Christians it is our duty to serve Him regardless of the events of the day within which we live here on earth and especially when things just might seem out of control. When all seems lost and evil abounds we must keep our faith in Him from faltering and not allow that faith to weaken in any manner whatever. These can be no ‘backsliding’ or seeking out Pastors that preach a ‘feel good’ gospel that is not of God’s Word.
There are prophetic events yet to occur that must occur before the end, the Great Tribulation. Those Pastors that fail to point out God’s Word in a truthful manner are not fulfilling the purpose God ordained them to do.
Isaiah 17: 1 A prophecy against Damascus:
“See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins.
Although Damascus sustained severe ruination in 732 BC, it was not totally destroyed. Isaiah clearly says, that Damascus “will no longer be a city.” This prophesy will ultimately be fulfilled.
Jeremiah 49: 23 “Hamath and Arpad are dismayed, for they have heard bad news.
They are disheartened, troubled like the restless sea 24 Damascus has become feeble, she has turned to flee and panic has gripped her; anguish and pain have seized her, pain like that of a woman in labor. 25 Why has the city of renown not been abandoned, the town in which I delight? 26 Surely, her young men will fall in the streets; all her soldiers will be silenced in that day,” declares the LORD Almighty. 27 “I will set fire to the walls of Damascus; it will consume the fortresses of Ben-Hadad.”
Many Pastors deny this as having no bearing on End Times but I caution you to understand, God’s Word is true and His prophets did not speak idly as they gave voice to His Words.
There can be but two methods of Damascus being brought to total ruination; God’s going against it as He did when He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah or by man’s hand, a nuclear blast. I am one who believes it will be Israel that goes against Syria and destroys Damascus .
If you will recall I delivered an earlier sermon that set forth the names of countries that sought the destruction of Israel . Among those I named was Syria .
We are all aware of the stated intent of Iran ’s President to, “eradicate Israel from the map.” Well, Israel is God’s nation and He will see to its safety.
Zechariah 12: 1 A prophecy: The word of the LORD concerning Israel. The LORD, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person, declares: 2 “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. 3 On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. 4 On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness,” declares the LORD. “I will keep a watchful eye over Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations. 5 Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, ‘The people of Jerusalem are strong, because the LORD Almighty is their God.’ 6 “On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all the surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place.
As God’s reveals in His Word, Israel shall be His protected people that will stand against those countries that seek to destroy that great nation. It would be wise of the Jewish leaders to stop all sinful actions within their country as it truly is a nation loved by God.
Not only will the military forces sent by countries seeking to destroy Israel be destroyed but Jesus Christ, Himself, will show those countries His mighty powers.
In this Scripture we see a forthcoming prophesy.
Revelation 19: 15 Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.
The results of His, Jesus’ fury is shown thusly:
Zechariah 14: 12 This is the plague with which the LORD will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. 13 On that day people will be stricken by the LORD with great panic. They will seize each other by the hand and attack one another.
As I have pointed out there are many events that are prophesied in God’s Word that have yet to take place. We see Iran , calling for Israel ’s destruction even as they seek to gain the alliance of all Muslim nations. Jordan , Saudi Arabia , Syria , Turkey and other countries to destroy Israel .. They have yet to form their alliance to go against Israel though this is the stated goal of all Muslim countries.
The events of this day speak to prove the plan that God has for our world.
Even with this being made known in God’s Word we, as God’s servants, must remain on the alert as we seek to further His Word. This is being made more difficult due to the rising tide of those that refuse to accept God as their Maker. It is their purpose to belittle, demean, and cast off against Christianity by any means possible.
If we are to prevail against those that refuse to believe and capture the hearts and minds of people seeking truth we must arm ourselves with knowledge and the wisdoms God has set forth in His Word, our Bible.
Those we seek question our beliefs but if we establish, as fact, that events of the times wherein we live are foretold in prophesy maybe they will accept our words. Then we can only pray that God will water the seed we have sowed and bring enlightenment to their hearts and minds. With this in mind I will point out even more events that are forthcoming as prophesies in the not too distant future.
Ezekiel 25:1`2-14 wherein the destruction of Iran is foretold.
Amos 1:6-10 and Zephaniah 2:4-5 wherein Gaza will be destroyed.
Isaiah 15: 1 and 6 wherein Jordan is to be devastated.
Jeremiah 49: 35:37 wherein Saudi Arabia is to suffer devastation.
I ask that you study these Words of God, pray on them asking the Holy Spirit to grant you the wisdom to understand their meaning and trust in God that He has authored a writing which speaks only truth.
In ensuing sermons I will seek to tell more of events to come before the Great Tribulation. In the meanwhile you have much to study and learn. As you study, trust in God knowing He will be your guide.
Almighty God, Ruler of The Universe, we came before You with praises of Your awesome powers. We ask that You accept our worship and our love. You are worthy of all praise and we worship You lone.
Father, You have set Your Words out in such a manner as to provoke thought. We study Your Words and seek to understand all that You have told us. Lord, please enlighten our minds and grant us the knowledge and wisdom to tell others of the things that have passed and the things to come. As Your children we shall sow the seed of Your Word and know that if we do the job You have given us You will decide just who is to be blessed and made one of Your servants.
Father, if we are to face the many events spoken of in Your Word as End times and Tribulation, grant us the strength to face them in such a manner as to bring others into Your service. Lord, steel our hearts and minds so as to allow us to be strong in Your service. Be with us O Lord and see us through to Paradise .
Father, we ask that You shower Your blessings on all Your children and send Your angels to protect them from the horrors of things to come. Bless those in the military, those charged with seeing us safe and all You choose to so bless.
We ask these things in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, who is One with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever,
Amen, amen and amen.
Although there remains prophesies to be fulfilled it is evident that those prophesies could be fulfilled any day. Israel may possess the nuclear capability to destroy Damascus as well as those countries that choose to set against them. The question in the minds of many may be; here does America fit in? Does America have a position that is foretold in God’s Word?
For that answer I refer you to the words of prophets.
In God’s Word there are scriptural passages that speak of, “two Babylons.” There is the original and a Daughter. There have been men that wrote of the Daughter, the New Babylon, and specifically named that nation as America . Additionally there is the, “Mystery Babylon,” who is known as, “an abomination.”
Revelation 17: 5 The name written on her forehead was a mystery: BABYLON THE GREAT …THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES…AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
This is very disconcerting to me as I have always thought of America as being a Christian nation with values far above any other nation on the earth. However, I see the moral degradation that is running rampant across the nation as more and more sinful acts are condoned. Our own government gives rise to abominations I never thought would be of such great importance but now realize I have misjudged…quite a bit!
Abortion, pornographic acts, theft, greed, acts against Christianity, and sins never before allowed by any government are not only condoned, but are paid for by the government. We have just witnessed the forced acceptance of homosexuality in our military and Pastors are condemned for speaking out is protest of immorality!
Laws have been passed that name sermons, ‘hate speech,’ when homosexuality is named as a sin.
The Founding Fathers of this great nation established writings that set forth God as having led them in establishing a Constitution and Bill of Rights whereby we would be governed. Instead of accepting these writings as words to live by we see those words twisted and used to destroy what they were designed to protect! I can only imagine God’s anger as He sees America sinking lower and lower into depravity and sinfulness.
Further study of Revelation 17 tells of location amidst, “seven Hills.” There are the Seven Hills of Rome and there are also the, “seven hills of Jerusalem ,” and Christians of America understand this fact. With this in mind the, “seven hills,” of Revelation 17 may be seen as those in the minds of God’s servants as can be seen as the ‘Seven Deadly Sins.’
There are ‘Hills,’ and there are ‘Hills.” The first may represent geological mounds while the other is represented by ‘obstacles’ hindering our spiritual walk. Those are named as: Pride; Envy; Anger; Avarice; Gluttony; Lust, and Sloth.
The political leaders of America are leading this nation towards each of those sins thereby creating a nation to be destroyed by God’s wrath! Add to those sins the one named earlier and you see ‘hill’ of a substantial nature.
Daniel 7 contains prophesy respecting, “Lion, Eagle, Bear and Leopard.”
England has forever been referenced as the, ‘Lion,’ America , the ‘Eagle,’ Russia , the ‘Bear,’ and, the ‘Leopard,’ the symbol of Satan’s antichrist as set forth in Revelation 13!
If you study Revelation 18 and consider the acts attributed to, “The Fall of Babylon,” you learn of America . You learn of “luxurious living,” you learn of, “merchants mourning ,"as they lost their buyer for the goods they sold. When you consider the fall of America ’s economy the light begins to ‘go on.’ However it is not the loss of economic power to be concerned with but the Words of God!
Revelation 18: 8 Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.
Consider the might and power once enjoyed by America . Nation of this earth looked up to her as either their protector or their enemy. Those that considered themselves as foes knew that they dare not openly oppose her. Then, slowly but surely things began to change. Where strength we shown in World War II, the Korean conflict showed hesitancy, Viet Nam showed a lack of steadfastness and conflicts in the Middle East are showing meddling by politicians as never before.
In short, America has lost her ‘moral compass’ and regardless of the good intentions of truly concerned citizens, destruction lies ahead!
As America once had the moral fortitude and God given strength to deter any nation or misguided band of malcontents (terrorists) from malicious acts against humanity, there would not be an antichrist with the wherewithal to act. By, ‘wherewithal,’ I mean money, political clout, and Satan’s backing.’ With America , ‘out-of-the-way,’ what nation dare oppose the antichrist?
It is extremely difficult to even think of America becoming as degraded and sinful as to evoke the wrath of God. But, in truth, I see our leaders as capitulating to the ways of Satan as they seek wealth instead of justice for the people. In abortion I see wholesale murder. I see sloth, one of the seven great sins, rewarded by those who give out the wealth of the producers to any that do not produce. I see the great numbers of people who deny God or, even if the make the claim to believe in Him, do so with a twisted manner of thinking. The denial of God’s existence is allowed on billboards. TV and just about anywhere imaginable...
Now I wish to digress and deliver a massage relating to my earlier words about the, ‘seven hills of Jerusalem ’ as thought of by Christians.
Our Heavenly Father is there for His children. His children are those who keep Him in their hearts and minds. To those Jerusalem has a special meaning. His children are those that praise and worship Him and know that He is there.
Revelation 21:: 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God..
This, “ Jerusalem ,” is that which must be in the thoughts of true Christians. No other location can equal what God has created for us…none! We must also be aware of the hills of sin that are not being overcome. These ‘hills’ will ultimately be our downfall!
Although our country may suffer God’s wrath and a mighty battle be undertaken with the antichrist at the head of God’s enemies, know this: God sent His Only Begotten Son to redeem us of our sins. We, as His children, must believe, confess, and repent unto Him as we FEAR NOT! This we must teach to our descendants and prepare them for that which lies ahead.
Any who may live through either the Tribulation or the ensuing Great Tribulation must remain firm of purpose and strong in faith. He is with us and that we, or they, must never doubt or forget! Those are the teachings we must convey and pass on to those we love.
Almighty God, Father of us all, we come to You with praises for Your greatness and for the grace You bestow upon Your children. Father we worship at Your Throne as we say, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah. Glory to God in the highest! All power and glory is Yours.
Lord, we thank You for the blessings and pleasure You have allowed us to experience here in our country. We strive to make Your glory known and pray that You will water the seed we have strewn. We express our sorrow at the acts of many that refuse to accept You, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit as worthy of praise and worship.
Father, we seek Your mercies and protections of the time to come as prophesies are fulfilled. Whether it is any of us to face the destructions ahead, or those that follow us, we ask that You be with Your children. We ask that You stay the hands of cruelty, the rigors of oppression and the actions of those that oppose You as You allow us to do Your will. This we ask for ourselves as well as for our descendants and Your future servants. As El Gibbor we ask that You strengthen those of Your army and teach them Your ways.
Father, we ask that You send Your angels to protect our sons and daughters in the military and be with them in times of danger. Be with those who protect us from harm sought to be wrought upon us by those who pray to a God that is non-existent and confound their leaders. We seek Your guidance for those in elected offices and for their enlightenment to You ways.
We ask these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son and our Lord and Savior, who is One with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever,
Amen, amen and amen.
Consider this…consider as you really think of an answer that makes sense.
Which country would dare to face the Antichrist with America out-of-the-way?
Britain , France , Germany , Denmark , Norway , Russia , Mexico , South America and many other nations are being taken over by Islamic hordes. China , Japan , Korea , Indonesia will not support Christian concepts. No Middle Eastern nation has respect for Christianity. Canada is Liberal and will also fall with the United States as it suffers nuclear destruction. India would not dare to oppose anyone powerful enough to either cow other destroy them and there will be no nation to stop the Antichrist. None!
There are Christians that scoff at the idea of America falling but know this, I do not predict this! It is prophesy and written by God Himself! No matter how bad the scoffing gets I do not think any prophesy of God will be changed by a failure to accept God’s Word.
Look what has happened within the last year.
America ’s Senate voted to ratify a treats (START) which restricts DEFENSIVE measures! Iran , North Korea , Pakistan , Venezuela as well as China and Russia have made known their utter disdain for the American way of life yet our political leaders vote to weaken our capability to defend ourselves and our allies!
Throughout the Old Testament there are instances whereby God allowed countries to conquer other countries that (the conquerors) were not His people to accomplish His purposes. We then must see that by His allowing the destruction of America is His way of punishing any that fail to walk the path He has directed.
Isaiah 47:1-15 (Too lengthy to print) sets forth prophesy respecting the “Virgin Daughter of Babylon.” A smug, self engrossed nation claiming to be the most secure and powerful nation with no peers, will fall. This, I fear, describes the demise of America .
I ask a second time, which country would dare face the antichrist with America out of the way?
The answer is not hard to arrive at.., sadly. There would be no nation to stand is his way!
With that made known allow me to divulge what stands to occur when the antichrist starts his reign. But, before I do this I wish to point out that although there have been and still are antichrists the will be those to come that identify themselves as such that shall wield great powers.
2 John 1: 7 I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.
The antichrist I now address will be the man that will form the ‘One World Government’ which will, in turn, demand rules and acts that go directly against God’s Word. There will be a total of two that will wreak havoc upon Christians. One will actually be the false prophet controlled by the other.
Revelation 13: 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name
Those that refuse to take the ‘mark’ will be subjected to extreme hardships and ultimately death at the hands of the followers of the antichrist. Know this, all pain and suffering faced here on earth will be rewarded by eternal happiness in the afterlife with God. Those who are TRUE CHRISTIANS must expect to strengthen themselves against false teachings as well as against physical weakness. Mental strength will be a true asset and is something to be prayed for!
Daniel 11: 31 “His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation. 32 With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him.
But, those who persevere will face extreme hardships and even death will receive God’s rewards.
Daniel 12: 11 “From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days. 13 “As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise to receive your allotted inheritance.”
There will be many acts designed to make claims of divinity of the antichrist and to turn families against one another in support of the antichrist. This is foretold in God’s Word and must be understood. Those who remain staunch in their faith and total belief in God will be rewarded. God makes this blatantly clear.
Matthew 24: 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.
Mark 13: 12 “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. 13 Everyone will hate you because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
2 Thessalonians 2: 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
False prophets abound this very day and it will get worse! Many deceive themselves as they support these charlatans and condone their actions. We TRUE Christians must remain faithful and deny Satan his wishes.
Each Christian must learn about all that is to come and ultimately the reward that waits. This knowledge must be passed on to each of our descendants as no one person knows when all these things will come to pass or even begin.
There may be a time wherein Christians must resort to subterfuge and seemingly false ways in order to survive. I say this as all too many Pastors teach their congregations to ‘roll with the punch.’ Imagine God’s anger at seeing His people allow themselves to be led like sheep to the slaughter. Who would live to tell of our Lord and Savior? Who would have the knowledge of God and all His greatness? Like our forefathers did in the days of persecution and torture, we must persevere and do all that is best to go on.
Abba, Lord above, hear our prayer.
We come to You with all the praises we seek to sing to You and with our worship that we seek to bestow upon You. You are our God, our El Shaddai, our provider and truly worthy of our love.
Lord we are learning of the trials ahead and seek Your protection and enlightenment. Reveal to each of us, in any way You choose, any instruction You wish to make known. We accept You as our El Gibbor, the Strength and our Rock. Please bestow upon each of us a portion of strength to allow us to stand fast in the face of adversity and which will allow us to find the strength to be the servants worthy of You and Your presence.
Father, if it is the fate of our descendants to face the horrors of what events are to come we ask that You be with them, be in their minds and hearts as You grant them the strength to stand fast as Your servants. Bring them leaders who will teach them that doing Your will is paramount above the will of any other.
Lord, ease our hearts and minds from the events of the day and accept our love and
faithfulness as we walk our paths in this world leading to You.
In Jesus’ name we pray who is One with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever,
Amen, amen and amen.
