America’s top leadership from the President on down have given the green light to aborting unborn children by the thousands and to those who want to redefine the biblical definition of marriage. We have watched in almost total unbelief as an out of control federal government in the process of usurping the freedoms of ranchers in Nevada and the powers of a sovereign state, attempted to confiscate the cattle of an American citizen to destroy them. Also, we have witnessed how America’s military chaplains have been given their “marching orders” never to use the name Jesus Christ in their prayers and definitely not to communicate the very truth that Jesus taught: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6) So deeply has the spirit of unbelief permeated our American culture that even the recently released movie, “The Son of God” deletes from the mouth of the actor that plays Jesus the second half of that verse!
Today, following the trends of American unbelief and compromise toward God, most big name Christian publishers in America resist publishing books on biblical prophecy. This is because a new form of “Evangelicalism” and new type of Evangelical leadership is being systematically and effectively promoted in American Christianity. This new type of Christian leadership uses far less Bible in preaching and publications and views prophetic teaching as a waste of time. It uses a new form of biblical interpretation (hermeneutics) called “preunderstanding.” This is a new way to approach the interpretation of the Bible that seeks to make the Scripture say what the speaker thinks it should say, not necessarily what it actually does say. Among these new type of evangelical leaders today is a growing anti-Israel, anti-prophecy sentiment. Many are supporters of the so-called Two-State Solution which is a slap in the face of God who declared His unconditional covenant with Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3!
Therefore, I believe that America is on borrowed time! Everywhere we see crosses being taken down. But this is permitted to happen outwardly only because the cross and God have already been removed from the hearts of supposed Christian citizens in America who elect liberal and pro-abortion politicians and who praise the unbiblical and compromising teachings of many American preachers! I speak of the preachers who are mainly interested in acceptance and popularity. These Christian leaders have systematically and successfully kept the American Christian distracted from understanding the times (2 Chronicles 12:32) through their “purpose driven,” psycho-theological and shallow slogans. They have accomplished this while Satan has infiltrated the land and has taken over the most powerful and influential seats of government as well as the seats of evangelical leadership, media and publishing houses.
One clear indication that this has happened is the avoidance of prophetic preaching and writing that has evidenced itself in America for the past 30 years. There is far more interest in teaching leadership principles then there is in teaching the actual Word of God. Pastors across America are more concerned with helping people feel ok about themselves than in exhorting them to know what sin is and how to live righteously. Witness how today many of those who claim they are Christians, who will conspicuously wave their hands and stand up and clap during worship are the same ones who also will happily cast a vote for Political leaders that are the most virulent supporters of abortion and immoral lifestyles!
It seems that the days of sound teaching are for the most part gone in America. The love of God for the sinner is not being spoken of in truth. This is because what used to be commonly known as sin is now not viewed as sin, but enlightened and liberated behavior. What used to be spoken of in America’s pulpits and church class rooms as evil is now promoted as good, and that which was preached as good is now viewed as evil! The prophets of the Old Testament clearly warned any nation that a curse would come through such reversal of moral and theological truth: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20)
When Jonah went to Nineveh to warn them of coming doom for their sins, they repented. God spared them for another century. But they went back to sin and God destroyed them. America was founded upon the moral, governmental, judicial and ethical principles of the Bible as well as the wise teachings of men who definitely were not anti-biblical. These were men, and some amazing women, and people of different races and national and cultural backgrounds who stood together to affirm the truth that there is a God to whom we are accountable. These were people who were highly motivated by a desire for freedom to worship the one true God and to serve Him without fear of molestation by an atheistic and overreaching government. They were man (and women) who were wise in applying the precepts of the Bible to the founding of a great nation under God.
In these days of trial, growing governmental tyranny and rising ecclesiastical compromise and apostasy, we need to remember what Jesus said to His faithful servants who anticipated His soon return: “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over His household, to give them food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master, when He comes, will find so doing (being faithful to the Master’s truth). Assuredly, I say to you that He will make him ruler over all His goods.” (Matthew 24:45-47)
Some are pointing to the four blood moons which astronomers predict will come in 2014-2015. We hear preachers say that this means that something is about to happen! Well, the word of God has been clearly saying this for centuries, that something is about to happen! God does not look lightly on Americas’ sins and a time of reckoning is indeed at hand! If the four blood moons did not present themselves at this time, we would still have plenty of dependable biblical prophecies that make the reality of impending judgment on America undeniable.
A growing anti-Semitic attitude within the American Evangelical Church indicates that we are indeed living on borrowed time as a nation. Now is the time to trust in Jesus Christ as personal Savior and to take a stand for truth in a time of rampant compromise. I believe that all of the indicators of the soon coming of the Lord show that the rapture of His true Church is at hand.
If only preachers and government leaders would take the clear warnings of the prophecies of the Scriptures and apply them to our day as they were intended. I pray that they will and that God’s people will love the Lord again, as the Bible teaches that we should, and take seriously the Words of the Lord: And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. (Revelation 22;12)
