FROM THIS TIME FORWARD

“I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there were none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and will stain all my raiment. For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.” -Isaiah 53: 4-4
From this time forward the people of this nation will not know a day of peace, there will be no good news, each bad day will fade into another equally bad day, and the black and ghostly apparitions of the former will blend with the grim and ghastly tidings of the new. The Lord has departed from a people that have departed from Him and prostituted themselves before heathen gods, a people who will in the coming days loathe themselves for the evils that they have committed in all of their abominations. They will surely know that He is the Sovereign God who will carry out His word to do evil unto them that defy His word and deny His Lordship over all of creation.
The great spiritual sickness that has settled across this land has progressed beyond the limits of a cure; a pagan people have spurned the divine corrective persuasions visited upon a sinful nation, and the loving God who sent them has been disdained and blasphemed. The day of reckoning is at hand.
GOD VERSUS MAN –
Thinking themselves to be gods men have, they believe, gathered to themselves the wisdom to control their own destiny. They profess to have discerned the knowledge to control their environment, yet floods continue, hurricanes persist, tornadoes demolish, tidal waves devastate, volcanoes seethe, fires rage, hail destroys, drought endures, and earthquakes rend the earth and swallow cities.
Medical scientists claim to have the key to the mysteries of the human body and the ability to heal. Yet disease-causing bacterium thrive, cancers kill, MS cripples, ALS paralyses, kidneys fail, brains atrophy, limbs whither, and hearts falter and stop. If the victims of such afflictions do not perish from the maladies upon them they succumb from the treatments rendered. This despite the billions of dollars bilked from people through the years by various organizations to fund the research to conquer all of the aforementioned killers of men, women, and children, all to no avail. Is it money misspent or is it, in fact, that healing comes only from God and men have not the power of healing within them.
For men to think that their teensy little brains are on a level with the mind of the Lord God of all creation is in itself a profanation.
Unless the defending hand of God abides with men and provides security from the adversity of the elements, delivers upon them the life-sustaining constituents, and guides them in their endeavors they will perish. Men cannot exist apart from the God who created them. Without the maintaining presence of God all endeavors of men will fail. They are as helpless as a newborn baby without the nurturing hand of a parent. It is a foolish man indeed that despises the power that gives him breath and scorns a presence with absolute ascendancy over the universe of which man is an exceedingly infinitesimal part.
“WE HAVE HAD OUR LAST CHANCE”
“If we will not devise some greater and equitable system, our Armageddon will be at the door. The problem basically is theological and involves a spiritual recrudescence, an improvement in human character that will synchronize with our almost matchless advances in science, art, and literature, and all material and cultural developments of the past 2,000 years. It must be of the spirit if we are to save the flesh.” -Gen Douglas MacArthur
Our last chance is now encapsulated within the past; this nation has progressed from bad to intensely filthy to demoniacally evil. The Lord has given us up to our own devices and our powers are woefully inadequate to solve the problems that confront us.
Dear reader if one is startled or surprised at the alarmingly portentous trend of the events upon this nation it would have to be that this person is not truly committed to, or a believer in, the Lord Jesus Christ. The occurrences that we are witnessing are in fact the birth pangs associated with the Day of the Lord. Those who are conversant with His word and believe in its inerrancy are not in the dark. They recognize that the world and this nation are traversing the final leg of the road to perdition.
HEADLINES: GOVERNMENT REGULATORS DOWNPLAY ENVIRONMENTSL IMPACT OF OIL SPILL – OBAMA ORDERS BP TO STOP SPILL
Just when I think that I have plumbed the depth of the foolishness that is abroad in this country something, such as these headlines, comes along to disabuse me of that thought. Certainly such silliness as this puts to rest Darwin’s theory that an intelligent species morphed from that lovesick amoeba that supposedly oozed from a primordial soup and ultimately became man.
Why, I ask do these cretins continually refer to this disaster as a spill? What we have is a gusher of crude oil emanating at high pressure through a hole in the earth’s crust from a huge reservoir of crude in the bowels of the earth, and this a mile down on the floor of the Gulf waters. This is no less than a manmade catastrophe, but to hear Mr. Obama and his government regulators tell it one might think that Paul Bunyon kicked over bucket of crude and that we will wipe it up with a rag.
BP and the Obama administration have fed the people a litany of lies from the inception of this monumental blunder unto the present time. And if it were not for some truthful caring and sharing independent engineers the entire population would still be in the dark as to the dire magnitude of this man caused eruption that has the potential to turn into a worldwide cataclysm, and most likely will.
Of course we need not be apprehensive any more now that President Obama has ordered that the “spill” be stopped. Since “We will change the world” Obama deems himself to be our savior one wonders why he hasn’t just gone to the gulf, parted the waters, and plugged the leak. I am sure that all those who have put their faith in this novitiate’s campaign messiah rhetoric will certainly rest easy knowing that the people’s savior has now ordered that the “spill” be stopped.
PRIDE GOES BEFORE A FALL
For well over a decade this nation has been continually assailed by cataclysmic events, the circumstances of which have cost billions and destroyed lives, property, and peace of mind. At no time through this series of catastrophes have I observed a stiff-necked people turn to Almighty God in repentance and ask his forgiveness of our national sin. I have witnessed a remorseful response to the losses that were incurred, but remorse for the sins of the nation is conspicuously absent. Not a single politician has kneeled in the presence of God in humble subjection and appealed, in the name of Jesus, for mercy and forgiveness. To do so in these times would ensure the defeat of that politician by his, or her, constituency. In this nation and in this time the false gods of heathen religions are accepted and protected by the people, the courts, and the political system, but the one true God is rejected and despised.
THE CONTINUING LAWLESSNESS OF A SINFUL NATION
Despite the seamless calamities that descend steadily upon this nation there has been not the slightest discernable lessening or reversal of the deformed moral character of the people. It is popular to blame the putrid immorality of our society upon the courts and the politicians, but the truth is that no inimical legislation is passed, no immoral law is upheld, and no vice is encouraged or protected without the collective approval and commendation of the people.
Infanticide continues at a steady pace in this nation, murdering medical practitioners have exterminated some sixty-one million babies. It is an abhorrence of monumental and cold-blooded savagery. If sixty-one million puppies were similarly systematically annihilated the population would be howling for the heads of those doing the killings. Such is our twisted sense of morality and justness. This nation is stained with the blood of these infants, and their blood cries out for justice, and justice for these little creatures of God will not be denied.
The minds and bodies of our youth continue to be corrupted and defiled by indoctrination by the schools, the government, and the social institutions of this nation in the filthy practice of sodomy and the encouragement of same sex marriages. These perverse practices are promoted and accepted by the media, the legislative bodies, the courts, and the majority of the denominational churches. A solid majority of the people deems them normal and acceptable even though the Bible condemns such as abominations.
Surely repentance is not going to emanate from the bulk of the church pulpits in this society. Too many preachers have not the faith of a gnat or the integrity of an ant when it comes to upholding scriptural instruction. They ignore the Gospel and evade the teachings of Christ and His disciples in order to preach social justice and universal salvation. Many embrace the false doctrine of universalism as an alternate to Christ’s teaching that no one comes to the Father except by Him. By their evasion of scriptural admonitions against destructive behavior they encourage degenerate and unbiblical practices. And then they have the temerity to call themselves ministers of God.
In spite all of the foregoing we have the audacity to ask God to bless this country. Every time I hear a politician close a speech or an address with God Bless America I cringe for that person in abject shame before the sovereign God.
AND THE END OF THE STORY
There are some hard learners who think yet that the nation can be rescued by correct political leaders and a return to constitutional principles. They still seek a restoration by and of men. They fail to take into account that the perverse in this nation far outnumber the honest and honorable. But, more importantly they fail to recognize that it is a spiritual disease that afflicts our society and saps the life’s blood from a once blessed republic. We are under condemnation by the Lord God for our national sins.
There are no saviors among men; one would think that after one year of Obama that lesson would have been brought home. Still we know that men rely upon men, and we also know that this will continue until the people of the entire world turn their lives over to the antichrist and slip completely into the evil grasp of Satan, the enemy of God and man.
This country is well beyond being salvageable. It is in fact destined for complete destruction. This is what happens when one shuns his creator and rests his faith in corruptible men. We are staring disaster in the face. Our national debt now exceeds thirteen trillion dollars, and will soon be greater that the entire national economy. Nothing is going to stave off an economic collapse. Continuing disasters of one kind or another coupled with the desperate and dumb endeavors of the government and the Federal Reserve serve to deepen the crisis and hasten the coming breakup of the economy. When that collapse comes it will be a catalyst that sets into motion a rolling series of events that will bring this nation rapidly to its knees.
The mestizo hoards that the political dimwits and social liberals have encouraged to pour across our borders have seriously disrupted social order and social cohesion, they have dissipated local economies and siphoned off monies earmarked for the native indigent and elderly, they have escalated crime and threatened the personal safety of individual American citizens, and they have resurrected and spread diseases had been nearly eliminated in the United States. They have inflicted no less injury to the nation than the barbarian Huns, Goths and Visigoths visited upon an equally stupid Roman Empire.
When social unrest reaches a volatile point and social wars are ignited these will join with the subversive Muslim elements that we have, in our limited wisdom, allowed to infiltrate the society to propagate their kill the infidel agenda. This country is destined to experience an internal turmoil that will so weaken our ability to fend off foreign belligerents that we will be attacked and destroyed. In plain blunt language this nation is toast.
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” -Matthew 7:13-14
Dear readers you can escape destruction: “For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Seek the narrow gate.
