Why is it that the events of the last few years, especially those of the last few weeks, seem so crazy?
It is my opinion that we have passed a point of no return. God is giving us over to our depravity, and preparing us for judgment.
This then is why the USA has a president like B. Hussein Obama. I am sitting in Canada and watching what is going on across the border, and I just have to shake my head.
After the killing of the American ambassador to Libya, the Libyan president stated that this was not a random act of spontaneous violence, but a planned terrorist attack, and still the White House continues to repeat the mantra that it was because of a silly video.
It appears that Obama is doing his best to put a positive spin on any act of Muslim terrorism. I think this is because he is a Muslim.
The truth is that it really doesn’t matter what religion Obama adheres to. If God wants to use him to bring judgment against the USA, God is capable of doing it. Don’t forget the USA approved of abortion long before Obama became president. Don’t forget several states approved of gay marriage before Obama became president. The depravity prevalent in American society has been in a continuous downward slide since the end of World War II.
No. Obama is a judgment from God against the USA, and he’s not alone. People like Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, Kenneth Copland, Brian McLaren, and many, many more are also filling this same role. Most professing Christians have given up on doctrine and are wanting their best life now!
What Paul said to Timothy in 2 Timothy 4:3 really applies to most modern Christians, and to the population as a whole.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. II Timothy 4:3-4
The idea that the USA can continue on racking up debt at a record, unsustainable pace, is a fable. The idea that God wants you rich is a fable. Think about it! If you have your best life NOW, you are heading for the Lake of Fire!
Don’t think that it will be better if the USA elects Romney. He’s just Obama-lite! Thinking you can vote in a better tomorrow is ignoring the real issue. I’m not talking about conservative ideals, I’m talking about repentance before Almighty God. God’s name is Jesus Christ, by the way.
The truth is that God has a time-line. If God’s judgment is according to a time-line, then, when that time approaches, it will be impossible to hold it off.
And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. Acts 1:7
Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? Luke 18:8b
The implied answer is; No! But God always has a remnant. I am convinced that only a remnant will be raptured. This is why Jesus told us;
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. Luke 21:36
The bible clearly says “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Acts 2:21) However the bible also says;
For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. II Corinthians 11:4
I am so concerned that the majority of professing Christians have accepted another Jesus. Jesus is not a magic name. You have to call on the true, biblical Jesus, to save you. I have come to the conclusion after a lot of study, prayer, and soul searching, that most Christians have prayed to a Jesus they have made up in their own mind.
The Western cultural Jesus is not the Jesus of the bible. Western culture, including that of the USA and Canada, has more in common with pagan Rome, than it does with Israel. Even churches that claim to be biblical, like Baptists and Presbyterians, have swallowed more of Rome’s doctrines than they ought to. They ought not to have accepted any!
What if you claim your Jesus is the Jesus of the bible, and then attribute characteristics to Him that the bible does not support? At some point you have a false Jesus.
It’s easy to point to Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, the Church of England, and the Church of Rome, and find their errors, but have you allowed the Word of God to change your heart? Can your church stand up to biblical scrutiny? Can you?
I apologize if this post has seemed to be rambling from subject to subject. The truth is that they are connected. If God is about to judge our society, it is because it is His time, and His churches are in the process of abandoning Him. It means that many professing Christians will suffer His judgment along with the world!
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (the rapture) shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; II Thessalonians 2:3
