As of February 1, 2013, I will no longer post on this blog. If you would like to continue to follow my articles, please go to RaptureReady.com. Thanks to all of you who have been faithful readers and for your comments. You've made blogging a lot of fun! God Bless all of you, and let's hope the Lord takes us home soon!! Donna Wasson
I want you to do a little exercise for me.I want you to sit back in a comfortable
chair, and close your eyes.Take a
couple of deep breaths and think about your child or children.If you’re a grandparent, think about your
grandchildren. Visualize their face and
hair.What color are their eyes?Visualize their height and size.Consider what makes them the wonderful, unique
little individual they are, and what type of temperament and personality they
Now, keep your eyes closed and picture helping them get
ready for school some morning.Just a
regular day, like any other day.There
they are, a clear image in your mind, all rumpled, trying to wake up and get
dressed, still smelling of warm sleep.
You help tie shoes or brush hair, and make sure they don’t
forget the lunch you packed. You can hear the hustle and bustle and laughter as
they get on the bus, and you call ‘Bye!Have a good day,’ as it pulls away. You smile as you turn and walk back
into the kitchen for another cup of coffee.
Forty-five minutes later, you get a phone call or text from
the school informing you that a shooting has occurred, and you need to get down
there immediately.Your stomach drops
and your heart begins to pound rapidly, as you grab your coat and keys and head
to the car, with your cell phone at your ear.
You arrive at the school to find it crowded with dozens of
police cars, ambulances and news crews.There are people everywhere, some wandering around, dazed, others rapidly
walking to fulfill their duties.You
find a place to park and run to the nearest authority, asking what
happened?They give you a distracted
answer about some kid walking into the school and shooting twenty to thirty
people. He tells you he doesn’t know if any are dead but he thinks so, as he
apologizes and trots away, answering his radio.
Are your eyes still closed?You still with me, picturing this scene?Can you hear people shouting orders over the sirens, and the sound of
someone sobbing behind you? Are you visualizing other panicked parents
arriving, their eyes wild with fear because they don’t have any more
information than you do?Do you feel the
nauseated panic in your gut as you wonder if YOUR child might be among the
Dear God, why can’t you find anyone to give you any
answers??After an eternity of walking
around, grabbing sleeves and pleading for information, an officer asks your
name.You tell him and as a shadow of
sorrow crosses his face, you feel faint; life as you know it is over.Because you know. You know.
That silly, giggling, little treasure you put on that big
yellow school bus just a few hours ago, is now lying nude under a clean, white
sheet, on a cold, stainless steel table in the city morgue.The obscenity of the situation is
incomprehensible!The facts refuse to permeate
your brain. Oh God in heaven, surely this is a nightmare, but you can’t seem to
wake up. You’re aware of family and friends holding you, murmuring choked
condolences with tearstained faces.
And all you can think, the only thing screaming over and
over in your mind, is your baby is gone. They’re gone! They won’t be home after school.You don’t have to worry about what to fix
them for dinner; you don’t need to finish that costume for the school play, because
they’re dead.They’re DEAD!
You’ll never again on this earth hug and kiss them. You’ll
never be able to share secrets as you cuddle in bed together.No more opportunities to tell them you love
them more than anything in the whole, wide world, or experience the unspeakable
joy, that tiny taste of heaven’s bliss, when those little arms squeeze you back.
Now open your eyes and whisper a prayer for each parent,
family member and friend of those who were senselessly murdered in Connecticut.
How could this happen, you ask?Why would God allow those children and adults
to be killed, when all they were doing was innocently going about their day at
school?Where was He?Might I remind you of the very harsh truth,
that God was banned from our schools back in 1963?He isn’t allowed in the door anymore.
You can’t even mention His name in most public schools or
bow your head to say a silent prayer at lunch, without fear of being called out
and sent to the principal’s office. I’ve
read of kids being sent home to change clothes because they had a cross or the
name, Jesus, on their shirts.So here’s
my question…What else do you expect?Why should senseless acts of violence in our schools so surprising?
And WHY does the knee-jerk reaction of every community
involved in a tragedy such as this, invariably consist of holding a candlelight
vigil and saying prayers for the victims?Doesn’t this seem even the slightest bit hypocritical, or at least
nonsensical?Who are these people
praying to?And for whom are they
praying?After all, there is no God,
right?And since there’s no life after
death, what’s the point of turning to an Almighty Nobody for comfort?
How fantastically insulting this must be to the heart of the
Father!Push Him off, blaspheme His holy
name at every turn, mock His commandments and ignore the wisdom in them, and
persecute those who cling to His Word and statutes. What kind of pushover do
you think He is?
Do you picture some benevolent, kindly Grandfather-like
figure up in the clouds; some ancient old man with deep wrinkles, which merely nods
and winks at sin? Well, hate to disappoint you, but our God is a consuming fire,
and He is not to be taken for granted or trifled with.
Am I saying those children and adults deserved to be
killed?Of course not! Don’t even
go there. But you must realize, due to
the deliberate choices and long term, unrepentant sin of America, God HAS
removed His hand of protection.This
kind of pointless carnage is but one result.You should expect more.Much more.
Not necessarily school shootings, but other senseless,
selfish acts that end in tragedy for some poor soul. See, He truly IS real, and
this is part of the price we pay for demanding God get out of our face and stop
telling us how to live our lives. These
kinds of events are the result of forbidding the Ten Commandments to be a part
of our government and courtrooms; from banning Christian displays of the cross
or a nativity scene in the public square.
You don’t think so?Well, think back.Guns have been
a part of society for over two hundred years, but you don’t remember hearing
about random massacres before the 1960’s do you? Cause and effect, folks.
Hey, you wanted God gone.Well, He acquiesced to your demand and stepped back, so don’t go whining
and blaming Him when tragedy strikes.By
the way, how’s that ‘separation of church and state’ working out for you?
In case you haven’t noticed the ever increasing coldness and
lack of conscience in human beings these days, I’ll just list a few things I’ve
read about in the news over the last month or so.
*A Chicago city police officer was writing a parking ticket
in front of Colonel Phillips FENCED IN home, when Mr. Phillips came outside to
see why he was getting a ticket. His little 7 month-old, mini Bull Terrier
followed him outside. Although the dog was INSIDE the fenced yard, the officer
pulled his gun and shot the puppy twice, then calmly resumed writing the
ticket.The puppy survived surgery.My, what a big, strong, manly officer he
*In Buenos Aires, a group of judges exonerated thirteen
accused sex-slave operators, despite 130 witnesses, dozens of which graphically
described the brutal conditions they had endured as victims.The judges ruled the witnesses were ‘lying.’Can you say ‘bribe?’
*NYC government slams Sandy victims with “Failure to
Maintain Property” citations.Kick ‘em
when they’re down!
*The parents of a 10 year old son in Texas kept the child locked
in a bedroom, feeding him only bread and water, for months. When he died from
starvation, they threw his body in a nearby creek. I don’t think they’ll receive the ‘Parents of
the Year’ award.
*A chef in California, on trial for killing his wife,
confessed to slow cooking her body and throwing it out with the kitchen scraps.
Mmmm, tastes like chicken!
*A 29 year old Texas man stabbed his girlfriend/baby mama to
death, and then proceeded to burn his 1 year old baby alive because she had
gone to court, seeking child support. How’s THAT for taking responsibility?
Believe me, I could go on and on, but I think I’ve made my
point.The apostle Paul warned that
selfishness and violence would increase to such a fevered pitch in the last
days, he called these times “perilous.”Sometimes his prediction seems to have been an understatement!
This is what he said in 2
Timothy 3: 1-4. “This know also, that in the last days, perilous times shall
come. For men shall be lovers of their
own selves, covetous,, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents,
unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers,
incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high
minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.”
Now, we know these sicko kinds of crimes have been committed
throughout history, but the difference today is the exponential increase in
cruelty and frequency. Behaviors like
these parallel other end time prophecies, which speak of a rise in the number
and severity of natural disasters such as earthquakes, famines, pestilences,
floods, and droughts, as well as more wars, ethnic clashes, upheavals in
governments, economies and signs in the heavens.
I think it’s safe to say that nearly everyone with a pulse
can sense that the forces of evil are amplified
more and more each day; growing ever stronger, and pressing closer and closer
around us. There are days it’s almost suffocating!Perverse cruelty and corruption permeates every
nook and cranny of society, and is sometimes so pervasive, so tangible it
wouldn’t be surprising if you could literally reach out and touch that unseen,
putrid world with your 3rd dimensional human hand.
It’s tiresome to be sure, but America exacerbated our
exposure to satanic attacks by foolishly choosing to reappoint Bronco Bama to
rule over this land for another four years; Constitution, Bill of Rights and
the Rule of Law be damned!Stripping the
law abiding citizens of our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms will
NOT prevent the type of tragedy that happened in Connecticut, but that is
precisely this administration’s goal.
cannot exist if those to be terrorized and broken are able to adequately defend
themselves.It really is just that
simple, prompting our Founding Fathers to ensure we the people, could protect
ourselves.If a security guard,
Principal or teacher in that Elementary School had access to a gun, the number
of casualties would have been drastically reduced.Instead, they were unarmed, sitting ducks,
completely helpless as they faced evil.
Ladies and gentlemen, look at what has happened in America
and around the world in the last 50 years.The human heart has grown more crippled and perverted, and very little
compassion or courtesy exists on this earth anymore.Now, get this…we are living in these
circumstances while the church and the Holy Spirit are still on this
earth!Do understand the significance of
Look at 2
Thessalonians 2: 3-8.“Let no man
deceive you by any means; for that day shall not come, except there come a
falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who
opposeth and exhalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is
worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself
that he is God.Remember ye not, that,
when I was yet with you, I told you these things?And now ye know what withholdeth that he
might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth alreadywork;
only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom
the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the
brightness of his coming.”
Well, we can plainly see how the mystery of iniquity is
already working, and obviously putting in some serious overtime hours. However,
the Holy Spirit, living inside us is STILL here, restraining evil.And it’s this bad already?
Can you even begin to imagine what mankind will turn into
when the church and the Holy Spirit are taken out of the way??Good heavens, what kind of depraved,
demonically driven acts will be committed by those left behind to face the
tribulation, with all its charms!
There will be no sense of propriety or civility, and any
respect for law and order will be out the window. They’ll be nowhere to run, and no one to run
to for safety; in fact, law enforcement will be the LAST thing you’ll want to
Nah, I think I’ll skip all that, thank you very much.I’ve been washed in the blood of the spotless
Lamb of God, and because of that and ONLY that, I stand acceptable and
righteous before the God and judge of the universe.My ‘get out of jail free’ ticket has been
punched and I’m ready for that glorious trumpet to sound.
How about you? Time is so short. Please repent and accept
the pardon Jesus died a horrible death to freely give you. Being left behind will be your worst nightmare
on steroids.Please, please don’t risk
it!Today is the day of salvation.Even one hour from now may be too late.
More often than not, that phrase is uttered by someone with
less than stellar decision making skills, engaging in some foolish, risk taking
behavior which usually results in the need for a quick trip to the nearest
emergency room.Funny thing is, one of
Webster’s Dictionary definitions of the word ‘watch’ is, “to keep in view so as
to prevent harm or warn of danger,” which seems to be at odds with the request
to have someone witness accidental carnage.
Of course, there are other meanings of the word ‘watch.’ 1.
Stay awake intentionally: keep vigil.2.
To be on the lookout for danger: be on guard. 3. To keep oneself informed
about. 4. To lie in wait for, especially so as to take advantage of something.The synonyms include alertness, heed, expect, anticipate, await, expect and hope.
Jesus tells us over and over in His Word, to watch for His
return.Actually, it’s more of a warning
to watch, so we’re not taken by surprise.However, there doesn’t appear to be very many Christians these days who
are truly watching, and that concerns me.
There seems to be two main theories regarding who will be
taken in the rapture, and who will be left behind.One states that everyone who is a professing
Christian will be raptured, with no regard given to the seriousness of their
walk with Christ.The second theory
posits that only those who are watching and longing for the Lord’s return will
be whisked to safety.
This is a touchy subject, but hey, since I’ve never been one
to shy away from a controversy, I thought I’d put my two cents worth in the
pot, stir it up and see what happens.I
can’t wait for the hate mail.OK, here
goes.It is my opinion that the latter
theory is correct; that only those who are actively watching and longing for
the Lord’s return, will be spared the Tribulation.
There are several reasons why this makes sense. Allow me to explain.First of all, let’s start at the obvious; the
relationship the Bible states the Church has with Christ.We are His Bride, the one He chose to love
and cherish forever.Think logically
here.What prospective groom wants to
marry a bride who isn’t crazy in love with him?
What groom wants to take on the responsibility of providing
for, respecting, protecting and loving a potential spouse who’s more interested
in what she can get out of him, than giving herself to him completely? She
should respect, admire and adore her fiancée, confident and resting in his love
for her.When they’re together, she
shouldn’t be looking over his shoulder, checking out other men, or thinking
about how to manipulate him into buying stuff for her.
And when they’re apart for any length of time, he needs to
be assured and comfortable, knowing she is faithful and belongs only to him;
that she is willing to be patient as she waits expectantly and joyously for his
return so they can start their lives together. Is that what is happening in the
mainstream church of today?Are you
kidding?Not even close!
The mainstream church/bride of today is out partying,
spending money hand over fist and sleeping around with every attractive male
that walks in the door.Her mind isn’t
stayed on her future groom. Now, does that really sound like the kind of
so-called, professing Christian Jesus would want to waste His time on? I don’t
No, He’s coming to take to Himself a Bride whose eyes shine
with His light; who spends her days fulfilling her earthly responsibilities,
while dreaming of Him and the new life they will share when He returns to get
Let’s look at what scripture has to say.Luke
21: 34-36 seems to have been written for the church of today.This is what Jesus said, with the Greek
meanings in parentheses:
“And take heed (be
attentive) to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts (soul, mind, desires) be overcharged (weighed down) with surfeiting (giddiness that comes from alcohol), and
drunkenness, and cares (anxiety) of
this life, and so that day come upon you unawares (unforeseen, suddenly). For as a snare (unexpected deadly trap, peril) shall it come (arrive, overtake) on all them (individually)
that dwell (a fixed abode) on the
face of the whole (entire) earth.Watch (be
attentive, ready) ye, therefore, and pray (desire, long for) always, that ye may be accounted worthy (judged deserving) to escape (flee out of) all (each, every) these things that shall (will) some to pass (happen),
and to stand (continue safe and sound)
before (in the presence of) the Son
Hmmm.Interesting.According to this,
we Christians are commanded by Christ
Himself, to take great care to stay on guard against the probability that
the responsibilities and anxieties of this life can weigh so heavily on our
minds and hearts, taking up so much of our attention, that His coming catches
us off guard.
This event is going to be so unexpected, it will feel like a
deadly trap to everyone on the whole earth who isn’t prepared to go.Therefore, we are to stay acutely aware that
He could show up at any moment, and we should pray and long for his
appearing, so we can be judged worthy to completely escape the tribulation that
is coming and be able to stand, safe and sound in His presence.
Sounds pretty clear to me.Does this, or does this not imply, that there will be some professing
Christians whose hearts are so caught up with the things of this life; that
aren’t looking for, much less LONGING for His return, that won’t be judged
worthy to escape.Gee, how many people
like that do you know? Let’s cut the baloney here.That describes the VAST majority of so-called
I get hundreds of emails from folks describing the reaction
they get from fellow believers in their social groups or church congregations,
who look at them as if they have three heads, when they express the genuine
desire for Jesus to return as soon as possible.These people make them feel like fools; as if THEY are all holy-roller
and out of touch with life.
It’s been said that when the Bible repeats itself, you’d
better pay attention.So, is this
commandment to ‘watch’ for His return, stated anywhere else in scripture?Yes, and by none other than Jesus, the one
who promised to come back.
According to Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, the same Greek
word for ‘watch’ was used in each of the following verses. The word, ‘grhgorevw,’ means ‘to give strict
attention to,’ ‘be cautious, active,’ ‘to take heed, lest through remission and
indolence, some destructive calamity suddenly overtake one.’
‘negligent, careless, derelict, lax,’ and indolence
means, ‘lazy, idleness, sloth.’Finally,
calamity means, ‘great distress,
disaster, an event causing great harm, loss or affliction.’
The verses with the bold highlighting were said by Jesus.
Matthew 24:42, “WATCH
therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”
Matthew 25:13, “WATCH
therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man
Mark 13:35, “WATCH
ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or
at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.”
Luke 21:36, “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.”
1 Thessalonians 5:6 “Therefore let us not sleep, as do
others; but let us WATCH and be sober.” (Per Paul)
1 Peter 4:7, “But the end of all things is at hand: be ye
therefore sober, and WATCH unto prayer.” (Per Peter)
Revelation 3:3, “Remember therefore how thou hast received
and heard, and hold fast, and repent.If
therefore thou shalt not WATCH,
I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come
Revelation 15:16, “Behold, I come as a thief.Blessed is he that WATCHETH, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and
they see his shame.”
Just as a little matter of interest, the word ‘thief’ in this verse means, ‘embezzler,’
‘pilferer,’ ‘falseteachers who do not care to instruct men,
but abuse their confidence for their own gain.’Can you say, ‘Emergent Church’?
OK, let’s review. Jesus
is the one who died for us, the one who rose again for us and intercedes for us
at this very moment. He’s the one who feels the tender affection a groom does
for his bride, and who has spent over 2000 years preparing just the perfect
place for us, and he specifically told us no less than 6 times, to WATCH for
Hmmm.You reckon He
wants us to watch for His return?You think
He really meant it?Do you suppose there
is a difference in His mind between those who actively watch and long for His
return, verses those who are still entangled and enchanted by the things of
this world?I have a sneaking suspicion
the answer is ‘yes.’
There’s another reason I think the number of Christians who
will be spared the Tribulation will be surprisingly small.Take a look at Revelation 7: 9-10, “After
this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all
nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and
before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; and cried
with a loud voice, saying Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne,
and unto the Lamb.”
On to verses 13-14. “And one of the elders answered, saying
unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came
they?And I said unto him, Sir, thou
knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation,
and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”
Here we clearly see that John witnessed in heaven, a ‘great
multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people,
and tongues.’Think about it.Again, the VAST majority of professing
Christians today in first world countries are not particularly interested in
the return of Christ.They aren’t
hearing about the rapture from their pastors, because most seminaries today
don’t teach about eschatology and end time events anymore.
Those subjects don’t fill the churches with happy, shiny
faced people who are willing to give lots of money to building projects and
community outreaches.Prophecy and the
rapture and the tribulation are scary subjects and difficult to understand, so
they pretend that stuff’s not really a part of the Bible, and just kind of respectfully
ignore it.Besides, those things
represent major life changes, and people are naturally afraid of and resist
change, even if that change is for the better.After all, the unknown is terrifying.
Here in America, people’s attention is fixated on what
another four years of this administration will bring.They’re worried about the economy and their
jobs, as well as their retirement accounts and their children’s future. Most
folks are STILL completely ignorant of what this President and his Globalist
handlers have planned for this country. Hate to tell ‘em, but their lives are going
to drastically change anyway, and if they aren’t accounted worthy to escape
these things, what they’ll face ain’t gonna be a barrel of laughs.
So, if everyone who states they are a Christian IS raptured,
where did that innumerable multitude of tribulation believers that John saw,
come from?According to the Pew Research
Center’s Forum on Religion and Public Life, as of December 2011, there are
approximately 2+ billion Christians in the world. Of course, what is included
in the term ‘Christian’ isn’t universal.
The term ‘Christian’ I am using, is a person who confesses
that Jesus is God’s only begotten Son, who was born of the virgin Mary, lived a
sinless life, died on the cross as the propitiation for our sins, rose again
the third day, ascended to sit at the right hand of God the Father, and who
offers salvation by our confession and acceptance of His grace alone.
Pew Research states that of that 2+ billion, half are
Catholic, 37% are Protestant, 12% are Orthodox and the remaining 1% belong to
sects who claim they are Christians, when they are no such thing, i.e.,
True Christians are those who strictly hold to the teaching
of Ephesians 2: 8-9 for their definition of salvation, “For by grace are
ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not
of works, lest any man should boast.”That unfortunately disqualifies an awful lot of those 2+ billion people
who profess they belong to Christ.
When we subtract the Emergent Church crowd, who are not
taught the need for repentance and trusting in the blood that was shed for
them, along with the untold millions who go to church, because they think
that’s what it takes to get in good with the ‘Man upstairs,” along with those
deceived souls in the Chrislam movement, that 2+ billion number really
Of the professing believers that remain, who are true
Christians in every sense of the word, how many do you suppose would be
included in the remnant that spend their days watching and longing for the
return of their Lord?How many
Christians have hearts that have disengaged from the things of this world,
whose greatest desire is to go home to be with Jesus?
I venture that number is abysmally small.Don’t forget that Jesus emphasized over and
over again, His desire that His Bride watch
for His return; that we are NOT to be distracted by the concerns of this world,
but to ‘pray always’ that we will be found worthy to escape the coming wrath of
God.It is more than obvious this
mindset is of utmost importance to Him.
This would explain why the number of tribulation saints John
witnessed in Revelation, will be so huge.I fear there will be untold millions of Christians who, to their horror,
will be left behind because they weren’t WATCHING as He instructed.
So where do you fit in?Are you secretly hoping Jesus will hold off coming back due to plans and
dreams you want to see fulfilled first?Do
you ever give more than a passing thought that today might be the day He
snatches His Bride home to be with Him, as He promised?Do you spend intimate time alone with your
heavenly fiancée every day, praying you’ll be found worthy to escape the horrors
we see closing in on us?
I freely admit that I hold no doctorate in theology, nor
have I attended Bible school, but I’ve been a dedicated Christian, by the
truest definition, for 42 years.In that
time, I’ve logged a bazillion hours of church services and Bible
teaching/reading and have a very solid grasp on what the Word of God
teaches.I’ve also got a decent amount
of common sense, and carry a simple belief that the Bible literally means what
it says, and says what it means.
Now, I may be flat out wrong in my opinion that the number
of those raptured will be shockingly small, but from what I see and hear about
the church of today, compared to what Jesus Himself said He expected us to be
doing in these last days, I don’t think I’m off base at all.If I’m wrong, then I’ll be wonderfully
surprised when that Blessed Hope occurs.
But if I’m correct in my assessment, most of you reading
this had better examine your hearts and make sure you’re watching and
ready to go. Disengage from the things of
this earth and look up, for our redemption draws near.Again, I could be wrong.But do you really want to take that chance?

Isaiah 5: 14-15,
“Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure:
and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth,
shall descend into it.And the mean man
shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the
lofty shall be humbled.”
Isaiah 5: 20-21,
23“Woe to them who call evil good, and
good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter
for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes,
and prudent in their own sight! Which justify the wicked for reward, and take
away the righteousness of the righteous from him!”
“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad

Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
There are days I think I’ve completely lost touch with
reality; like Alice did when she went down the rabbit hole and encountered a
topsy-turvy world that made little sense. However, the most terrifying part of
this sensation of societal vertigo is the realization that I haven’t lost touch
with reality; it’s reality that has changed!
I remember watching the horror of 9/11 on TV as it unfolded,
thinking to myself that life in this country would never again be the
same.It was as if some cosmic force
invaded and our country would be, from that moment on, doomed. Since that day,
what I felt in my spirit has come to pass, and now American society has
degenerated to such an extent, it has literally turned inside out from what it
was in 2001.However, I’ve always been a
firm believer that the beginning of the end of our country, actually started on
June 17, 1963.
So what’s so mystical about this date?It was the day the United States Supreme
Court handed down its verdict declaring that reading the Bible, or saying a
prayer in public schools was unconstitutional. You can still hear the echo of
God’s heart breaking over this ruling, all these decades later.Well, like Galatians 6: 7 states, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for
whatsoever a man soweth,that
shall he also reap.”And baby,
look at us now!
A few months earlier, on January 10, 1963, the Honorable
A.S. Herlong entered into the Congressional Record of the House of
Representatives, information from “The Communist Takeover of America: 45
Declared Goals” excerpted from The Naked Communist, by Cleon
Skousen.Let me list just a few of these
goals for your consideration:
#15Capture one or
both of the political parties in the U.S.
#17Get control of
the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current communist
propaganda.Soften the curriculum.Get control of the teacher’s
associations.Put the party line in the
press.Get control of book-review
assignments, editorial writing, policy making positions.
#21Gain control of
key positions in radio, TV and motion pictures.
homosexual, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural and healthy.”
churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion.Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for
intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
or any phase of religious expression in the schools, on the grounds it violates
the principal of “separation of church and state.”
family as an institution.Encourage
promiscuity and easy divorce.
Out of the 45 listed goals, only about 5 have not been fully
realized, and a few of those are in the works right now.Well.Isn’t that special?Psalm 89: 40 “Thou hast broken down all
hishedges; thou hast brought
his strongholds to ruin.”Actually, WE broke down our own hedges of God’s protection by forbidding
Him entrance into our schools, and by systematically kicking Him to the curb of
public life in general.
We are reaping what we have sown.We allowed a break in the hedge of God’s
protection on this country, allowing satan and his little minions to move right
in.Now, we find ourselves today
re-electing a Christ hating, Muslim loving, baby-killing, homosexual
supporting, Communist for President, along with a Congress who is complicit
with his plans to destroy this country, all to facilitate the rise of the New
World Order. I hope you who perpetrated
this obscenity, are proud of yourselves.
How wonderfully progressive and politically correct you are!
Those of you who profess to belong to
Jesus Christ, who voted for that demonically controlled troll, will rue the day
you chose his provision over God’s provision. You chose his brand of morality
over the precepts and commandments of a Holy God.You might want to re-evaluate whom you
serve.You, above all, are what the Communists
call, “useful idiots.”
I love the BBC’s definition of a “useful idiot”: “This
refers to Western journalists, travelers and intellectuals who gave their
blessing—often with evangelistic fervor—to tyrannies and tyrants, thereby
convincing politicians and the public, that utopias rather than Belsens
thrived.”Belson, for those of you
who’ve never cracked open a history book that wasn’t revisionist, was one of
the most heinous Nazi concentration camps in NW Germany.
Here is where the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ part comes in. Growing up during the era of the Cold War, we
would occasionally hear of news stories from the Soviet Union’s state news
service, Pravda.Back then,
America was the bastion of freedom, prosperity and sunlight, while the USSR
represented everything dull and gray with cruel, tyrannical repression and
poverty. We used to shake our heads in disgust and sympathy for the poor,
oppressed citizens of that cold, barren, hopeless country.
This week, I discovered the English version of Pravda’s
online news.And what did this news
service, which used to be so tightly censored by the state, have to say?Well HECK, come on in and jump down the
rabbit hole with me, ‘cause you’re not EVEN
going to believe this!The world has
certifiably turned upside down, and inside out.
THEY are bewildered by America’s choice to re-elect “Barack
Obama, the Communist,” back into office, and if anyone can spot a communist at
a thousand paces, it’s Pravda! My
Lord God in heaven, where AM I??One of
the articles is titled; The Reason Obama
is President, by Xavier Lerma.Here
is the very first, devastatingly accurate sentence: “The reason America has the
trillion dollar war monger, Obama as president today, is because of immorality
and materialism in America.”
People, don’t you get it??The former Soviet run news service is calling US immoral!You remember the Soviet Union, don’t
you?Tyrannical, KGB thugs breaking down
citizen’s doors in the middle of the night, dragging people out of their beds,
never to be seen again?The Soviet
Union, where freedom of speech and the press were nothing more than a pipe
dream?Where the state dictated where
you lived, what you did for a living and how much money you could make, while
refusing to allow you to leave the country to search for a better life?
THAT former Soviet Union, now Russia, is aghast at the
results of America’s insistence of throwing God out of our society.Can you believe it?Here is more of what Mr. Lerma had to
say.To begin with, he quoted George
Washington, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the
He continues, “The revisionist historians have tried to
‘cover up’ God himself by not allowing recent generations to know that America
was once a nation of religious people.Now, over half the people in America are not well informed and are
willing to believe the spoon fed propaganda from the Democrats and Republicans,
who are notorious for wanting to stay in power.Their worshippers get their education from TV and their friends.”
“They overlook Obama as they overlooked Clinton’s mistakes,
or think their vote counts and they actually have freedom while approving of
wars overseas.Such people are the
product of America’s decaying society, whose reality has been warped by drugs
and other selfish pleasures.America has
gradually become worse from the drugs, rock and roll of the 60’s and 70’s, to
the drugs and rap music of today.The Communists
won while Americans smoked pot.”
AAAARRRRHHHHHGGGG!Would you like a spot of tea before we continue, Alice?
He goes on to describe how the alienation of God began in
our classrooms after JFK was assassinated; how blasphemy and perversions are
portrayed on TV and in our movies as normal, as well as the “silent holocaust”
of aborting our unborn. He states, “Where there is no God, there is chaos,” and
adds that Americans are suffering from a spiritual illness most commonly
referred to in previous years, as “sin.”
He also points out, “’Freedom of the press,’ means the media
will be free to report what it wants
you to know. ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN
and even FOX, are similar to the Communist Soviet Union’s Pravda.You
are now in an atheistic society as the Soviet Union once was.Pravda online, has become more news
worthy now as Christianity flourishes.”
RUSSIA is saying these things about America!And what they are saying is TRUE!How shameful and disgusting we’ve
become!William Penn, American patriot,
said, “Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.”Welcome to the U.S.S.A.The United Socialist States of America.
Mr. Lerma finishes by saying, “The Communists took over
America after JFK was shot. American society then took a sharp nose dive into
Hell.With the presidential elections
rigged, there was no stopping their agenda.Call it Marxism, Socialism or Communism.It’s all the same.”
Well, they should certainly know!But, Mr. Obama is the messiah, or as actor,
Jamie Foxx just stated at the 2012 Soul Train Music Awards, “Let’s give
an honors to god, our lord and savior, Barack Obama.”Huh?BO was re-elected because he’s going to save the economy and give us all
free stuff that other people have to pay for. Isn’t that the story?
Back in 2009, Vladimir Putin, current President of Russia,
was the country’s Prime Minister.He
gave a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, warning
against any country repeating the ‘Soviet mistake.’
Mr. Putin stated, “…we are reducing taxes on production, and
investing money in the economy. The second possible mistake would be excessive
interference into the economic life of the country and the absolute faith into
the all-mightiness of the state.There
are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state,
one can achieve better results.”
“Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit, accumulation
of the national debt are as destructive as an adventurous stock market
game.During the time of the Soviet
Union, the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually led
to the total non-competitiveness of the economy.That lesson cost us very dearly.I am sure no one would want history to repeat
itself.”Well, Vlad, apparently no one
in America was listening because our beloved dictator is doing everything you
Folks, if the people of the former Soviet Union, one of the
most cruel, repressive, tyrannical, corrupt governments ever to exist, are
alarmed to see America slowly taking on those very same attitudes and
attributes while losing our civil liberties, it serves to prove what I’ve been
saying for months. America is dead meat, and if you are stupid and blind enough
to put your hope in our charismatic, demonically controlled President, you will
be lost and left behind when the true Messiah yanks His Bride home.
There is NO hope here!WAKE UP while you still have time, humble yourself before Almighty God,
repent of your sins, and accept the free pardon His only begotten son, Jesus,
died to provide to you.
Mark my words: America will end up making the old Communist
Soviet Union look like Disney Land.But
hey, if that’s what you want, you go right on ahead and trust your government
completely.Enjoy your topsy-turvy, ‘Alice
in Wonderland,’ mind-bending reality, based on lies and deceit. Have at it!
I climbed out of the rabbit hole a long time ago, and am
