“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.” – Revelation 20:11-13
Just as the doctor diagnoses our medical condition and the vet diagnoses our pets, so do the true prophets diagnose our future. Because this is true that the scruffy little man on the corner, who is carrying the “End Is Near” sign, will one day be recognized as one of the most important voices of our time.
But it has never been easier to predict America’s trajectory along the path to its own demise.
The scene of Joe Biden signing the “Respect for Marriage Act,” surrounded by drag queens who have performed scantily clad and jerked around in front of toddlers, and surrounded by the likes of Kamala, Pelosi, and Schumer standing by in full sycophantic applause, is proof that our days are numbered.
When our leader’s applaud perversion, our days are going down to the proverbial precious few.
Why does God pull his hand back from blessing and protecting us?
Without asking my readers to dig into some complex Biblical theology, I will display one of the simplest, but profound verses of scripture, give it a simple interpretation, and remind the reader that this is no obscure theology. In fact, the warning seen here is a redundant theme in our bibles, appearing over 300 times between the New and Old Testament.
“Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place” (Jer 22:3).
The call to execute judgment means that we must consider the comparing of good and evil, then always choose the good. When good judgment is suspended, the Lord is displeased, but even worse, he will refuse to help us to do evil in any form or fashion. But if we persist, he will lift his blessing and his protection.
“In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” (Isa 59:13-14)
We seek equality for gays, trans, and gender confused persons, but God is seeking equity. Pray we may see the difference, before it is too late.
America is far from being the first nation to pervert or substitute equity for perversion. To wit:
Making perversion and equality the equivalent of, or a substitute for morality, is a total suspension of our best judgment. It is the fastest road to confusion and ultimately to destruction.
In God’s eyes our economy and our morality are inextricably entwined. So, what do you think is next for America – prosperity?
Seeing Old Testament passages as a blob of aphorisms, metaphors, poetry, or some antiquated form of communication that has no bearing on today is a serious mistake. The philology and nuances may have changed over the years, but the mind of God never changes. He wants today, exactly what he wanted in ages past. He does today, exactly what he did in ages past.
We talk about who the bread winner is in the family, and we say that we need to work to keep bread and butter on the table. These adages are impossible to miss and have been with mankind for millennia.
This is why we know exactly what God is talking about when he talks of bread or the lack of it.
“When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine, which shall be for their destruction, and which I will send to destroy you: and I will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread” (Eze 5:16).
“Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread” (Ps 105:16).
But all of the economy is in his hand; the “bread” covers everything. It is the most basic thing and is used to represent the entire economic balance of any and all nations.
With America’s breadbasket under a drought, her supply chain broken and faltering, it is all under the hand of a male transportation secretary who thinks he is married to another man, the future for all our needs is in serious jeopardy.
Poverty and scarcity are only precursors to more serious judgments; America is taking her first steps.
It takes no special insight to see that the choke on our supply chain and the drought on our grain production is about to squeeze the life out of our long-established belief that America can never run low on anything.
Many years past, God warned this writer that, in my lifetime, I would see the United States enter into a long and protracted time of serious poverty and scarcity.
The door is now opening on that matter and what is to follow is right behind.
America is the rich farmer who did so well that he thought to tear down his old barns and build a new multi-plex warehouse for his goods. After all, he did support Joe Biden’s build back better plan, and inflation and shortages were only temporary according to Joe’s best prognostications.
But this is how God responded to the rich farmer:
And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? (Lk 12:18-20).
If we have gone from killing our children in the abortion clinics to grooming them for our perverted lusts, should there be an endless supply of good and plenty for such a nation?
