“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:  2) For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,  3) unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,  4) traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.” .. 2 Timothy 3:1-4 (NKJV) ..

Is this a perfect description of America today, or what?! .. I mean it describes our nation to a tee! .. Simply put, we have fallen to a level never thought possible even just a few years ago. .. I know for certain that our forefathers would be turning over in their graves right now. …

As for why I think this has all happened, allow me to cut right to the chase. .. There are two basic viewpoints I will briefly share ..

*Secular History – From the beginning of recorded history, most every nation has met its demise through either military conquest and/or the decent into decadence & immorality. .. For the sake of time, let’s just take Rome as an example. .. This was a nation blessed with a then modern way of life with a military might unmatched in the world. (sound familiar?) .. Basically, they called all the shots in their world at the time. .. The only possible way for them to ever fail as a nation was through its own self-destruction. .. And guess what? .. That’s exactly what happened! .. They became so self-absorbed & immorally decadent that they eventually self-destructed.  They died from within. .. Nothing could change or overthrow their way of life, except themselves. .. History shows us that this is exactly what happened. …

Fast-forwarding to today, we see almost the exact same pattern taking place here in America! .. The ways that brought this nation to greatness are now being destroyed by the current secular minds that are allowing & even promoting the things that brought the likes of Rome to its end. .. Let’s take just a quick glimpse at some of these ways ….

   *Domestic & Workplace Violence …

   *Hatred for Each Other in Forms of Racism, Religion, etc …

   *Inner-City Rioting & Shootings …

   *Law Enforcement Under Attack …

   *Rampant Drug Use & Overdoses …

   *Skyrocketing Suicides, Depression, Mental Disorders …

   *Schools Removing God & Replacing it with LGBQ-Friendly Curriculum …

   *Government now Forcing States to Fund/Support ‘Planned Parenthood’ &
….Their Abortion Agenda … (nearing 60 million)

   *Highest Courts in the Land Approving ‘Perversion’ in the Form of Same-Sex
….Marriage …

   *Pornography, Sexting becoming the ‘New Normal’ ………………… and on &
….on & on ……..

   *Spiritual Overview – Once again, any & all nations who either denied the one true God and/or followed false gods have all met their demise. .. Let’s look at just Israel for a moment. .. I mean the Jews had it made if they just would have listened! .. They were God’s chosen people & all they had to do was obey Him! .. But no, they decided that the worldly way was much better, and basically ‘easier’ to live by. …… so …… The Babylonians in 576 BC destroyed Jerusalem & exiled the people to Babylon. .. Then again in AD 70, the Roman Army destroyed their Temple & they were dispersed throughout the world (diaspora) to remain in exile for some 2000 years! .. And why? .. Because they turned their backs on the one & only true God. .. Simply, God removed His covering because they became sinful & morally decadent. ..

Once again, let’s take a quick look at America’s spiritual condition …

   *The Nearly Complete Removal Of All Forms of God From the Public
….Place …

   *Fundamental, Literal Bible-Believing Christians Now Rapidly
….Becoming Public Enemy #1 … (I’m one of them)

   *Church Leaders Succumbing to the Post-Christian Societal Evolution by
….Changing/Adjusting Biblical Teachings  

    For the Sake of Acceptance, Popularity & Personal Gain …

   *Arch of Ba’al Being Erected in NYC …

   *Satanists Establishing Their International HQs in Salem, Massachusetts ..
….(How appropriate) …

   *Satan Clubs Entering the Public School Arena – but – Jesus Christ Has Been
….Pushed Totally Out …

   *Christian Businesses & Individuals Being Singled Out & Punished Just For
….Standing Firm in Their Faith …

   *”Wasteland Weekend” & “Burning Man” orgy-filled Festivals Now Becoming
….Annual Events & Attended by 10s of Thousands …

   *Church Leaders/Pastors Under Fire by Federal Govt. Concerning
….Sermon/Teaching Content as Being ‘Hate- Speech’ …………………..
….and on & on & on ………

Simply put, America is the perfect model of the Roman Empire, not to mention Sodom & Gomorrah …  I suppose I should be baffled by the pure blindness of most all the people of today, but then, when we study God’s Word concerning this, it all becomes clearer & clearer as to the patterns of today’s world. .. Amos 8:11 says it clearly …  ” ‘Behold, the days are coming,’  says the Lord, ‘that I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.’ ” ..

Then, of course, ‘The Days of Noah’ are clearly being seen in our land today. .. Here’s what Jesus Himself said about them … “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.  38) For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark;  39) and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away.  That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” .. Matthew 24:37-39 (NIV) … Can’t be any plainer than that. .. Jesus said that just before His triumphant return, people would be totally oblivious to the warning signs that are raging all around them! … How tragic it is! ..

Some folks today are anticipating a Great Revival that is soon to come upon this land & the rest of the world. .. While their motives are honorable, I must respectfully disagree with them. .. As a ‘watchman’ of God’s prophetic Word, I see no place in scripture where this is the case. .. What I do see, however, is a massive revival AFTER the Church is raptured and the earth enters into the 70th week of Daniel’s prophecy (Revelation 6:1-19:10) … This is the Tribulation period. ..  We see in Revelation 7, after the 144,000 are sealed, a “great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb.”  (vs. 9) .. These are those that come to the Lord & are martyred during these final 7 years before our Lord’s glorious return. .. In simple terms, these people come to the Lord during the greatest time of persecution known to man. ..

What this means to me is that, although things are going to continue to get worse before it’s all over, we must NEVER quit sharing the hope & truth of the only escape from the coming wrath, that being Jesus Christ! … Hallelujah! … With all the signs that are so obvious to those of us who ‘know,’ we must sense the urgency to be a beacon of light to the lost & dying in today’s world. .. No, you most likely won’t win a popularity contest, but you will make a huge difference as to where some of your friends & family spend their eternity. .. Nothing is more important than that right now! …

I will close with this verse from 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 … “And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.  4) The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”  (NIV) ..

There is absolutely no question America has become a fallen nation. .. This fact only raises an urgency in me to share His Word & love to as many as I can, while I still can, before it is too late. .. I pray you also will do the same. .. We also must be praying for one another as this task will require strength & perseverance in these increasingly difficult days. .. Jesus is coming soon! .. Hallelujah! …

Until next time,
