Should the Church Prepare for the Fall of America?
by Joseph Mattera
For the past several years, a growing number of prophetically and culturally astute leaders are predicting the decline of the USA. Also, books like the New York Times best-seller The Harbinger have issued dire warnings to America based on biblical principles and Old Testament prophetic passages.
There have been predictions as dire as the total breakup of our union preceded by mass rioting and chaos (catalyzed by runs on banks and economic calamities), to a severe economic crisis far worse than what happened globally in 2008! All in all, most who I speak to portend a major financial correction is soon coming in the market. I have been saying for several years that I believe the year 2016 or sooner will be a time when many looming calamitous issues will converge together and cause societal disorientation and economic woes equal or greater than the Great Depression of the 1930s!
Since the 2012 presidential election, there have been many ominous signs of huge American decline in global influence: China and Russia have been saber-rattling and spewing out military threats; the NSA spy scandal has alienated our allies and further validated our ideological enemies; the military is experiencing mass cutbacks in spending; Iran is continuing to move forward with their nuclear program with impunity; Obamacare has proved to be a disaster with the president caught lying about its devastating effects with millions losing their health coverage (and worse yet, losing faith in their leader); and the federal government continues to pump billions of printed dollars into the economy to superficially keep the nation afloat.
