Well, well, well, what a mess we find ourselves in.We all know the dismal free-fall America has
taken since our communist-in-chief took office, but the damage that’s been
foisted upon our Constitution and Bill of Rights is just the start of the
Let’s just cut the manure and get down to it.The world as we’ve always known it is about
to undergo a drastic change.Everyone I
encounter seems to have an impending sense of doom in their gut, but they can’t
quite figure out why. Maybe the innate reflex God instilled in every person to
survive another day is wiggling around in our spirits.
I could start listing out all of the signs of the last days
we are living in that are occurring around the world, but heaven knows we have
enough going on here in America that should cause even the most hardened of us
to stagger in fear.The economy for
instance; I’m grateful my Dad isn’t alive to see gas prices.He would be stunned and shake his head in
wonder.And when is the last time anyone
under 80 years old saw unemployment this high? OK, besides the Great Depression.
This covers a wide spectrum of white collar and blue collar
positions as well as menial jobs providing a service of some type. The over whelming
majority of these people aren’t lazy, sitting around watching Jerry Springer
all day and taking gulps of free nourishment off the government teat.These are upright, proud folks who would
almost rather go hungry than ask for a handout. They just want a decent job!
Many have given up looking.If they’re fortunate enough to find a job in a fast food joint, the pay
cannot begin to cover their expenses.Now, that kind of situation is OK for a couple of months to get by until
they find a position in their field that suits their education and experience,
but the better paying jobs simply aren’t there.It’s not even a matter of competing for an opening anymore because you
can’t compete for something that doesn’t exist!
The domino effect of this downturn seems to stretch for
miles.People are struggling with a
sense of depression and hopelessness, as well as anger and plain ‘ol fear of
the future.How will they feed their
families?Close to 47 million Americans
are currently on government aid and/or food stamps.
Food banks, churches and other charities are running out of
foodstuffs to give out to those in need.The people who usually contribute now find themselves on the other side
of the desk, asking for help while they struggle with a sense of shame and
failure. This kind of stress in a normal household, much less a dysfunctional
home, usually leads to fussing and fighting, sometimes ending in violence.
Of course, the fallout from the massive drought our country
is currently experiencing hasn’t hit the supermarket shelves just yet, but
higher prices for most everything are soon coming and will make life that much
I was thinking about all of this the other day, as well as
the phenomenal increase in violent crime and the sewage level morality the U.S.
has embraced in the last 50 years.It is
obvious to anyone with any spiritual discernment whatsoever, that Almighty God
has removed His hand of protection and blessing from this country.Can you blame Him?
He’s been rudely booted out of our government schools, courthouses
and lives.For 187 years, God’s name was
revered or at least respected in American society. But in the 1960’s, one particularly abrasive,
arrogant, loud mouthed, wide-load of a demonically controlled woman by the name
of Madelyn Murray O’Hare, won her disastrous case with the Supreme Court of
this land and triggered the slow decline of American culture and values.
Goodnews Christian Ministry describes this ghastly event
this way: “In June 1963, the Supreme
Court upheld the argument of the atheist, Madelyn Murray O’Hare and promulgated
an edict with ramifications so widespread, it insured that God would be evicted
from public society across the entire spectrum of American governmental system.
From that day to this, not only has prayer been outlawed, God’s very name has
been declared anathema to the United States Constitution, and forbidden to be
mentioned in any federal, state, county, city or municipal context.”
“Further decrees have
revealed the depths of the ouster that initial edict has fostered.Not just prayer is forbidden in the public
forum.Display of the cross is
forbidden.The Ten Commandments are
forbidden. The Bible is forbidden. Nativities are forbidden.Even the mere mention of the names, ‘God’ or
‘Jesus’ in schools are forbidden. More than that, anything even suggestive of
those names is forbidden.”
Unless you extol the name of Allah. Or Buddha.Or Lucifer. THAT’s OK.We’re tolerant and don’t want to exclude or
offend anyone, unless you’re a Christian, of course!
For all intents and purposes, the Supreme Court of the United
States of America ruled the U.S. Constitution to be a Godless document. Even
though it was designed around the Ten Commandments and even invokes God’s name,
they decided it was a Godless document based on the opinion of a rotund,
Godless, angry woman whose entire life was a perpetual bad hair day.
Ms. O’Hare went on to found American Atheists and made a
complete nuisance of herself until she, her son Jon, and granddaughter Robin,
were kidnapped by American Atheists former office manager, David Waters in
1995.He later confessed to murdering
all three individuals, and led police to their graves where their dismembered,
severely decomposed bodies were found. Hmm.Whatcha wanna bet Ms. O’Hare believes in God now…
Ever since the day the Supreme Court ruled in favor of
removing any reference of God from government institutions, our country has
been circling the drain morally and politically, while the natural world God
made has slowly grown increasingly violent, as if expressing outrage at mankind
for shunning the Creator.
Just 5 months after this foolish ruling, JFK was
assassinated in Texas.Acting President
Lyndon Johnson involved America in the Vietnam War, which lasted 10 years and
accomplished absolutely nothing but waste billions in taxpayer dollars, while
maiming or killing over 200,000 American sons, husbands and fathers. Good job there, LBJ.
In 1964, the U.S. suffered the worst earthquake ever
recorded in this country—a 9.2 on the Richter scale in Alaska, triggering a
tsunami that wiped out towns across the coast of Alaska, and devastated the
coastline all the way to the port of Los Angeles, California.
Since it’s been about 50 years since Ms. O’Hare’s
incomprehensively selfish demand triggered the beginning of the end of America,
let’s compare some natural disasters that occurred 50 years before the
Court’s decision, which would take us back to 1913. Will we see any difference
in the number of tornadoes, hurricanes or even volcanic activity between
1913-1962 and 1963-2012?
These statistics aren’t worldwide; these pertain only to the
U.S.Get a load of this!
From 1913-1962, there were 83 outbreaks of tornado activity.That comes to 1.66 tornado outbreaks/year.
However, from 1963-2012, there were 192 outbreaks of tornados; approximately
3.84 outbreaks/year.Wow, that’s quite a
temper tantrum nature has thrown since we booted God out.
What about hurricanes? From 1913-1962, America was hit by 4
hurricanes.Four. BUT…between 1963-2012,
we’ve been slammed by 16 hurricanes, including the most destructive in and of
itself, Hurricane Andrew, which struck South Florida and Louisiana in 1992 as a
category 5 storm.Katrina, which hit
Louisiana in 2005, was a category 3, but was the cause of enormous damage due
to the inadequate maintenance of the levee system protecting New Orleans.
Anybody up for reviewing volcanic activity?OK, from 1913-1962, there were 8 eruptions in
Alaska and 2 in California, for a total of 10 in the U.S.A.Yes, I said California.BUT, from 1963-2012 there have been 28
eruptions in Alaska, 2 in Hawaii, 1 in Oregon and 1 in Washington, for a total
of 32.I don’t think creation has been
very happy with us since the Supreme Court decision to cut God out of American
government. What do you think?
I won’t belabor the sad state of the family unit here except
to say there are FAR too many single mothers, drug/alcohol addicted parents,
and foster children who are abused and bounced from house to house. Not to
mention the seemingly bazillion abortions carried out here, 98% of which are
performed in the name of convenience.
Now, we get to add all kinds of charming ‘new’
configurations of families, consisting of whatever hodgepodge of persons living
under the same roof until a better, more advantageous sexual partner catches
the resident’s eye.Mix in sodomites, sprinkle
a dose of adopted children and we’re off dancing pointy toe jigs in a fairyland
of twisted, reprobate ecstasy!
The duplicity and corruption of our governmental officials,
not only in Washington, but on the State and even local levels, is
breathtaking. Actually, watching the national news these days is akin to
viewing a poorly written Saturday Night Live skit that just won’t end. It’s
gotten so out of control it’s now funny; a tragic comedy portraying self
absorbed sin, lies, money, power and sex.
Shame on you who swore to uphold and defend our
Constitution! Shame and derision on you who have betrayed the trust of the
citizens who employ you to represent their interests.Shame on your lying, selfish, utterly corrupt
ways.Woe to you who have sold out to
and are aiding and abetting the Globalists to realize their long term
goals.You will most assuredly reap what
you have sown!
And may the full wrath of Almighty God descend upon all the
grotesquely twisted souls who are the satanically manipulated marionettes of
the self described Global elites.You
are duped by sheer stupidity into believing the pretty lies of the enemy, that
you will achieve your New World Order by destroying millions of men, women and
children you view as unworthy eaters of the wealth you feel belongs to you. A
special circle of hell is currently being constructed for your arrival, and the
entirety of your vast wealth won’t be enough to alleviate your suffering. Not for a split second.
While these things are horrible to contemplate and weigh us
down as we wrestle daily with confusion and uncertainty for the future, do we
ever, even for an instant, consider the effect our sin and rebellion wreaks on
the heart of God?I sure don’t hear much
about that aspect of this whole mess.
This has been God’s experience with mankind from the
beginning.I cannot imagine how weary HE
is of looking at the sewer we’ve made of His lovely earth and how mankind can’t
seem to get enough of violence, self and death.How it must hurt him to see us in such pain; pain that we inflicted on
ourselves by our selfish rebellion.None
of us can adequately imagine what the perfection of Eden was like; to be
completely innocent, enjoying a perfect, playful love relationship with our
The Bible tells us repeatedly that God is patient, not
willing that any should perish.But he
is not perpetually patient like some wimpy, overly permissive parent who never
follows through with threatened discipline.His righteous judgment on the sins of America is about to fully bloom.
Zephaniah 1: 14-18 sums things up well.“The
great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice
of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble
and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and
gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, a day of the trumpet and alarm
against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.And I will bring distress upon men, that they
shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their
blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.Neither their silver nor their gold shallbe able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole
land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a
speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.”
Nahum 1:2-3 “God is
jealous, and the Lord revengeth; the Lord revengeth, and is furious; the Lord
will take vengeance on this adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his
enemies.The Lord is slow to anger, and
great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in
the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.”
Nahum 1: 6-8 “Who can
stand before his indignation? And who can abide in the fierceness of his anger?His fury is poured out like fire, and the
rocks are thrown down by him.The Lord
is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in
him.But with an overrunning flood he
will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his
Our Creator gets no thrill in destroying people or property,
but because being perfectly just is part of His Holy character, punishing unrepentant
sin comes with the territory. If He
failed to do so, He would not be perfectly just.Another facet of His character is unfathomable
A few days ago, I was reading the news online, and found
myself getting weighed down and overwhelmed by a sense of hopelessness and
sorrow.How could this county have
turned her back so completely against the very One who established her?Study American history and be astonished at the
impossible odds against the U.S. ever breaking free from British rule.The fact that we even exist is an utter
miracle of God.
Then, because we founded our Constitution and Bill of Rights
upon Judeo-Christian, Biblical values, God blessed America until she was the
most powerful, wealthy, innovative, healthy beacon of hope for the rest of the
world’s population. Then came Madelyn.Whoo!Is it hot there, Madelyn?Mmm, I bet it is!
As I was contemplating the decline of this country,
something incredible flashed in my mind.It was a spark of knowledge from God Himself that imprinted on my heart
in a microsecond; something so profound and powerful it immediately caused me to
break down in sobs. I was given a small taste of God’s hurt and disappointment
in America and the enormity of mercy He has patiently shown us in the face of
incorrigible, flagrant rebellion and arrogance.
That glimpse of His unspeakable mercy crushed me.I wept for the pain His Fatherly heart has
endured in the face of His overflowing blessings to this country, as well as a
sense of speechless gratitude for the patience and mercy He has shown to me
personally with regard to my own sin. How
completely unworthy of His love, and yet how completely I am covered by it.
It brings tears to my eyes just writing about it.The pain we have caused God is worse than I
can describe, yet He has been reluctant to exact justice on this nation.His patience has now run out and America will
most assuredly suffer the full and well deserved brunt of His wrath.What fools inhabit this country!The U.S. is finished and will never return to
what she once was.
The ONLY hope we have to escape the grinding punishment that’s
coming our way is for us to individually fall on our knees in repentance and
turn our lives over to the One who made us and knows us best. His children are not destined for His
wrath.He does not punish the righteous
with the wicked, but always makes a way of escape and shelter before the
So where are you in this?Does your heart ache for the pain you’ve caused your heavenly
Father?Are you ready to surrender your
life and future to Him or would you rather take your chances on the upcoming,
useless election; one that’s already been decided but is allowed to played out
to satisfy the ignorant masses, by the demonic puppet masters running the show?
Time is running out. Please open your eyes to what is
happening in this country. It will NOT improve long term, I guarantee it.The only Savior we can count on is Christ
