MSNBC HEADLINE Ike Nears Texas: ‘Now Is The Time For Prayers’
Only the godless media of a godless nation of godless people devoid of any knowledge of the changeless Eternal God could deliver such a conventionally self-serving statement, a statement typical of a nation having a form of godliness, but denying the power of the almighty, all knowing, and all-seeing God of the universe.
The Apostle Paul wrote of just such a time as exists in this nation today, a time when the people would be lovers of themselves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, uncontrollable, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, and lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. In view of the fact that fifty million innocent babies have been murdered intentionally with premeditation and in the most heinous ways I would add murderers to that list, which of course only highlights Paul’s offering of “being without natural affection”.
There does not exist a more apt description than this of the nature of the United States today, it is a nation that consists, collectively, of a people led away from God by divers lusts, it is an ever-learning acculturation of those who are never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. It is in fact a nation of people who resist the truth, an irreverent fellowship of men of corrupt mind and reprobate faith. We are a people who turn to a righteous God only when it is selfishly expedient or when it suits our egotistical purposes to do so. Such disdain and disregard for the God who gives us breath and who’s very Spirit and power animates us and sustains the beating of our hearts will certainly have its consequences and we are seeing such in this country at an ever accelerating pace.
The United States has crossed a great divide and is now on a dizzying slide downward through an ever-quickening succession of events, both of the cosmos and of manmade induction, which are stepping this nation toward a now inevitable time of a complete and climatic destruction. Prayers from an apostate people for deliverance from catastrophic events current and future will not be heard, in the parlance of the Bible it is a time for sackcloth and ashes.
AN UNPOPULAR MESSAGE
Those who believe that there is hope for a secular deliverance of this country from an increasingly inescapable terminal destiny at the hand of Almighty God or that the government or its leaders possess the answers to the nearly total social and spiritual unraveling of this commonwealth are barking up a wrong tree. Nowhere in the population of this nation or in the government or the institutions thereof exists a savior. Our Savior has come to this earth and gone and will return again, it is He that we should look to for deliverance. It is He who is the true Savior, and if the readers of this message have not accepted Him as such and taken advantage of His work upon the cross for the expiation of their sins past, present and future they most surely would do well to do so now. The fact is that any preacher, of honeyed words, who extols an innate goodness of man and salvation by any means other than through Jesus Christ, is a false messenger and is in service to the powers of darkness. God’s word says that none are righteous - no not one - and that the righteousness of man is as filthy rags in His sight.
My recent articles have been increasingly apocalyptic; I reject any thought that there is any hope that this country will be turned around by mortal men or by our terribly corrupt and fallible politicians. These, and those who extol their virtues, will do nothing other than hasten our fall. This has not been a popular message with some and several letters in response to my recent columns have been vitriolic and hate filled. I understand this, as the writers of these messages love the world either above God or in place of God.
I am grateful to those who carry my articles on their websites and pray for God’s blessings upon them. But, I know that there will come a time, and very soon, when my words will be blocked and censored. The prophets of old who were sent to deliver hard messages unto God’s people and to their kings and religious leaders were censored and imprisoned, and those who speak the truth today can expect the same circumstances as even now we see an unrighteous abridgement - by a fascistic government - of individual rights and liberties.
“When I say unto the wicked, Thou shall surely die; and thou gives him not warning, nor speaks to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at your hand.” (Ezekiel 3:18)
Clearly those in the ministry today who tickle the ears with new age doctrines - such as the goodness of man, a lack of evil, that man is divine and therefore can create his own spiritual destiny, Satan is an imaginary being and that there are many roads to salvation - have not read the above scripture. And if they have and have rejected it, or any other of God’s truths, they will stand and give an account for every lost soul that was in their charge.
A TUMULTUOUS END
The affects of hurricane IKE were tremendous. The cost of property damage has been estimated at one trillion dollars. Tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed and hundreds of thousands people have been made homeless. Millions are without power and industries of all kinds have been either disrupted or destroyed and shut down altogether. Local economies have been all but wiped out and the U.S. economy already a tottering shambles held together by chewing gum and duct tape is being pushed to the edge. The dwindling number of middle- income taxpayers cannot continually bail out one area after another from the costs of major catastrophic events that now occur at a rate of nearly one upon another, and it is with a certainty that the major corporations that are virtually completely exempt from taxation are not going to contribute to any recovery as greed is the name of their game. The soon coming burden that the government will place upon the dwindling few will be crushing. And yet this is but the initial phase of the coming tribulation upon this nation. The apocalyptic natural events will continue, but that is not the whole of the story.
The economy of this nation is, for all intents, shot; fooled away by seeming half-wits. The government and the elites have striven mightily with lies, manipulation of the markets, and bailouts of failed financial institutions to wire together a wrecked economic infrastructure that has been made a disaster by their own hand. The stricken federally chartered housing finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac - progeny’s of our totalitarian regime - have been absorbed by their maker and shaper and placed upon the backs of the people. A wrecked car in such a dismal shape as our economy would be declared a total loss and scrapped. I think that this is exactly the plan of those who pursue a one-world order. They endeavor powerfully and vigorously to scrap the dollar and negate our sovereignty in order that this nation might be coalesced with Canada and Mexico in a North American Union and then integrated into a new world order.
RIOTS, CIVIL STRIFE AND WAR
Who can know the evil that lurks in the minds of men? God knows and soon so shall we if we don’t already know.
A virtual Trojan horse of monumental proportions has been rolled across our borders. Such an event could not have been accomplished without the ignorance, apathy and complaisance of the people and the treasonous endeavors of the politicians who feed at trough of the corporate pirates who control the government and society with the monies that they have amassed by deceit, trickery and larceny beyond imagination. To be subject to these is the fate of a people who have no knowledge of Almighty God. This horse carried the seeds of an invasive and pernicious evil that will render this nation completely impotent and cause it to lie prostrate before its enemies.
Out of the horse poured predators, malcontents, criminals of all stripe, disease carriers, free loaders, mercenaries and subversives. Such have molested, raped and killed our children, disrupted and corrupted every facet of an amalgamate and orderly society, bankrupted our local governments and institutions, piled the people high with debt to sustain the invaders with perks beyond anything available to ordinary citizens, caused us to build an ever increasing number of prisons to incarcerate alien invaders who kill, violate and maim American citizens, and opened the country to the predations of clandestine enemy agents who have infiltrated via open borders and lax immigration policies and who are supported by enemy citadels that have been openly set up under the noses of the government and its security agencies in the guise of mosques and embassies..
The floods, the hurricanes, the tornadoes, the fires, the earthquakes and the manmade disasters presage the time of the end. Soon - very soon - our cities will be host to civil strife such has never been experienced in the history of this nation. A pestilence of violence will roll across the land, cities will burn and the carnage will be great. Our panicked fascist government will add to that carnage. The violence will exacerbate an already degraded situation and disease and famine will spread exponentially in the wake of the violence. There will be widespread panic brought about by the rolling and continuous collapse of services and social order. No person will be isolated from the effects of the collapse of order that will affect those both within and without the cities.
“The sword is without, and the pestilence and the famine within: he that is in the field shall die with the sword; and he that is in the city, famine and pestilence shall devour him” (Ezekiel 7:15)
When the nation has been sufficiently weakened by all of the foregoing an utter annihilation will fall upon the land and it will be made desolate by nuclear fire.
“In all your dwelling places the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate; that your altars may be laid waste and made desolate, and your idols may be broken and cease, and your images may be cut down, and your works may be abolished. And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and ye shall know that I am the LORD.” (Ezekiel 6:6-7)
