Why the Threat of ISIS and Russia?

August 31, 2014

Solomon was the king of Israel for forty years after David’s death. God made him the most blessed of all kings. He was the richest man alive, and his father David had vanquished the enemies of Israel so that the realm of Solomon had peace on all fronts. As long as Solomon obeyed God, things went well in Israel; however there came a time when Solomon turned away from God to some degree and that brought trouble to his borders. How does that connect with us today in the United States? We shall explore that here.

In 1 Kings 11 it says, “But Solomon loved many strange women…for it came to pass when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God…For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians and after Milcom, the abomination of the Amorites. And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord and went not fully after the Lord as did David his father. Then did Solomon build a high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon. And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed to their gods.

“And the Lord was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the Lord God of Israel…and had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which the Lord commanded…And the Lord stirred up an adversary to Solomon, Hadad the Edomite: he was of the king’s seed in Edom…And God stirred him up another adversary, Rezon the son of Eliadah which fled from his lord Hadadezer, king of Zobah. And he gathered men to him and became captain over a band when David slew them of Zobah: and they went to Damascus…and reigned in Damascus. He was an adversary to Israel all the days of Solomon, beside the mischief that Hadad did: and he abhorred Israel and reigned over Syria…And Jeroboam, the son of Nebat…Solomon sought to kill him, and Jeroboam arose and fled into Egypt…until the death of Solomon.”

Despite Solomon having peace on all fronts during his reign, adversaries popped up as a result of him turning away from God. Jeroboam in particular was the biggest adversary, because Israel would be split after his death into two separate kingdoms, and Jeroboam was appointed by God to be the king of the ten tribes that would break away from Solomon’s kingdom after his death. God raised up Jeroboam because Solomon had turned away from God. God has raised us up adversaries, today because we have turned away from God.

You will ask, we have had adversaries before in our past like Germany in two world wars. So, what is the difference today? Solomon’s kingdom was the most powerful in the region. No one could stand up to them, so his kingdom had peace. When Solomon’s heart turned away from God; that had a result of weakening the kingdom and adversaries took notice and rose up to take advantage of the situation. Before WWII, we were not the most powerful country, but arose at the end as the most powerful country.  So, we have had peace all these decades since, except for wars we chose to fight on foreign soils. There never arose an adversary that would take us on outside of the threat the Soviet Union posed during the Cold War. However, the Soviet Union collapsed, and then there was just us as major player on the planet.

When we turned away from God as wholly as we have today; this had a result of causing God to raise up adversaries to us. The sin in this country that is multiplying unchecked today has weakened this country so much, that other people and countries have taken notice and are rising up today to take advantage of this situation. ISIS has come into existence to be a God ordained adversary to us. Russia has begun an expansionist policy. China is threatening to do the same. The enemies of the U.S. have taken notice and are getting more emboldened every day. There is no way to stem the tide unless this country turns back to God. God has called these enemies into action because we have abandoned him; so does it not seem to reason the only solution to get rid of these threats is to turn back to him?

Solomon was unable to rid himself of his enemies, because his heart was not perfect with God. Despite being the most powerful country in the region, he could not get rid of those enemies. Do you think we will fare any better? Proverbs 16: 7 says, “When a man’s ways (or even a country’s ways) please the Lord, he makes even his enemies be at peace with him.” God brought these enemies into being, and only he can remove them. So, there is plenty to worry about in this world, today. These threats are real and extremely sinister. Evil cannot remove evil; it only replaces it with evil. It takes good to conquer evil. Unfortunately, there is nothing good coming out of this nation these days. So, we have to turn to God to be able to replace the evil that is presently around us. That is what God requires us to do.

The Church, the 700 Club and Misplaced Priorities

August 15, 2014

What caused the Catholic Church to lose its dominance in Europe? What caused the Protestant Church in Europe to lose Europe to secularism? What are the mistakes being made today by the Church in the United States? I will explore the answer to these questions by bringing up the main causes that connect these same questions.

The answer to all three questions can be summed up partially by saying, they had misplaced priorities. The Catholic Church turned to ceremony and did less in the area of salvation and preaching the Gospel which was the calling given to the Church from the beginning by Jesus. Salvation does not just mean to save one’s soul, but to heal the sick and to make a person whole physically, spiritually and mentally. The Church turned away from healing sometime soon after the patriarchs like the Apostle Paul and all the others died and let people who were only in the Church to promote themselves take charge in many cases. As a result, the Catholic Church split and the Protestant Church also came into being. What was left of the Church as described in the book of Acts ceased to exist.

The Protestant Churches turned to ceremony, likewise in time and stopped listening to any further revelation God would try to give them. They became stale over time and then became concerned about how many people they could attract to grow their churches rather than placing the Gospel at the forefront of their thoughts. Many churches remained effective through the decades, but it has really been a slow death just as described in the Book of Revelation when the seven churches were written to by John. Each church described represents a period of time the Church has gone through these last two millennia. The last church, (the church of the Laodiceans) represents today’s Church as a whole, and Jesus says if it does not change, he will spit this Church out of his mouth.

Now, what are the misplaced priorities plaguing the Church in the United States, today? The Church here has lost its moral compass. It has let the United States decline to moral degradation of extreme magnitude without standing up against it. As a result, with this country on the verge of collapse due to judgment from God, The Church does not even recognize the true problem this nation has. They see a major threat to this country and think praying for a solution to this threat is what they need to do, but never realize they are not getting to the root of the problem.

I heard a few days ago Pat Robertson of the 700 Club express his great concern over the expanding threat of ISIS. He called for prayer by the television audience against this threat. He was missing the boat just as the mainstream Church in the United States is missing the boat. He thinks ISIS is the threat, but never realized that it is the Church being unrepentant in this country as being the problem. ISIS is a threat because this nation will not repent and turn back to God. The ISIS threat exists, because God has called them to be a threat to this nation. Therefore, God will not answer their prayer to stop ISIS. Pat Robertson does not understand, and the Church as a whole does not understand. They have their priorities wrong.

What the 700 Club needs to be doing is to help lead this nation as a whole to repentance. They need to recognize that all that is befalling us today is because this nation has moved too far away from God. These problems are upon us because we have abandoned God in this nation, and God has called for all of these things to come upon us to destroy us. The people of the kingdom of Judah did not listen to God through Jeremiah, and the 700 Club and the Church are not listening, today. If they do not start help leading this country back to God now, then this nation is most likely doomed.

So, the Church can continue to have the same priorities it has had for so many decades, and it can continue to turn a deaf ear toward what God says is sin. They can let the moral degradation in this nation continue to increase and never lift a finger against it, or it can finally take a stand. If it refuses to get up out of its comfort zone,  and continues to allow the threat of losing its Tax Exempt Status to stop it from acting, then there will be nothing to stop the United States and its freedoms from being completely wiped out in a few short months to come.

The Obama Stranglehold Prophecy

August 4, 2014

It was back in 2009 when I wrote the book, “Jeremiah’s Prophecies: The End of the United States.” I refer back to this again because new people are coming to my blog all the time. In it there was a prophecy I call the Obama Reelection Prophecy. This book I wrote back in 2009 said Obama would be reelected despite many people saying, he would not win reelection. I can remember Dick Morris being one of the people saying that and several prophets, too. The night Obama won reelection; I had the greatest audience I have ever had come to my blog when Obama was declared the winner. People were hungry for a word from God after they saw that event.

There was another prophecy contained in that passage. It is being fulfilled before our eyes as I speak. Everyone can see it, but so many political pundits have been saying the opposite. It refers to the power President Obama still maintains that so many others want to insist he does not maintain. They want to believe a lie. They are just fooling themselves.  Now, let me give you that passage again:

“Do not let the prognosticators and false prophets tell you the power of the spirit of Nebuchadnezzar will be broken in the next election. I will increase its stranglehold over you. It will finish the work I have sent it to accomplish. Those who have their hearts full of evil will not return to plague this country again. I will remove them from this land, and where they go is where they shall remain. Let us have a contest to see whose words will prevail. Shall the false prophets who prophesy of my judgment being cut short before its job is finished be correct, or shall the truth be found in the prophet who says this work is a long one? To cut this work short would be to sanction the sin that exists today and let it come back to fill this land. I shall finish this work and expunge all the evil filling its borders.”

When God brings judgment, it is to remove the evil present in the land. God is going to remove the evil that fills this land known as the United States. He will not cut his work short. He will finish the job that must be done. That means all of us will suffer. All of us here will be going through the fire. This could be avoided if this country would repent and turn back to God, but at this point in time, it does not look like that is going to happen. So, we see the prophecy in this passage coming to pass before our eyes, today.

What is the prophecy I am referring to in this passage? It is, “I will increase its stranglehold over you.” This means upon Obama’s reelection, God will increase Obama’s power over us. What were the political pundits telling us soon after Obama’s reelection? They were saying he is a lame duck president. That means he has lost some power, and many have said from this point on, he is irrelevant. That sure has not turned out to be true. He has single-handedly sent thousands of illegal aliens into this country and is even talking about flying them here from Honduras so they do not have to walk here. Does this sound like he has lost power? He does what he wants and is brazen enough to announce he will continue to do more things in defiance of Congress and in defiance of what the majority of Americans want him to do.

This spirit behind Obama has increased its stranglehold over this nation, and there is no one out there who can stop him. Will the Republicans do anything? They talk a lot, but in the end they are paralyzed. Has the Tea Party stopped him? They cannot even get control of the Republican Party; much less stop anything President Obama is doing. No, there is no one that can stop what this spirit is doing short of this nation as a whole falling on its knees and repenting before God. That is what God requires us to do. But, we are not listening to God. We are still trying to win political victories when this battle was always a spiritual one. We have to stop fighting in the natural and turn back to God to defeat this Nebuchadnezzar spirit; there is no other way.

God said in my book, “I speak to the political parties in the United States opposed to the spirit of Nebuchadnezzar in the White House to end their resistance to this spirit. Place yourselves into the bondage he brings. He was elected to the office for a reason. If you resist, you will bring death and destruction upon yourselves. I have given him dominion over you and this country to bring my judgment upon it. Therefore, do not listen to those who prophesy peace and good times for America—they are speaking a lie. I did not send them to speak. They are getting you to believe a lie so that you will be scattered and removed from this land with those deceitful prophets.

“To the pastors and priests in the United States and to all others: do not believe the words of peace and prosperity for this country. Do not accept the lie of the economy recovering and becoming strong again. Bring your necks under the bondage of your king in the White House. Why should I level your cities with great destruction because of your resistance to my words? If those prophets of yours who tingle your ears speak truth, then let them intercede for you that your king will not increase his burden on you yet once more. Be aware: this spirit ruling your land will take all your prosperity and send it to other lands.”

All of these words contain God’s directives for us. Resistance to this spirit that rules Obama means death. We cannot defeat him in the natural. There are no political solutions. We are even hearing today that the economy is improving. They are trying to get us to believe a lie. The stock market is being propped up by money being pumped into it by the Fed. We have one of the lowest adult participation rates in the work force we have ever had. Many people have lost their full time jobs and are now working part-time instead. The national debt continues to climb. There will be a day of reckoning for that which will soon occur. Does this really sound like the economy is improving. What financial problems do you think all these illegal aliens coming into our country right now will bring? Half of the Hispanic aliens (illegal and legal) are on government assistance today. How can one think that things are really improving when the recipe we have been using can only do the opposite?

We need God, but he is waiting on us to repent. Things are going to collapse and this stranglehold we are presently under will only get stronger. Our rights will be completely gone when this spirit is finished. That is how it brings about death and destruction. It must have control over us, and God is going to allow this so that the evil in this nation will also be permanently removed. So, fall on your knees, Republicans and Democrats. Fall on your knees Tea Partiers and Independents. If you want to save this nation, we have to turn back to God. Our time is almost up.
