I am writing to those who are disheartened today, perhaps in shock, perhaps apprehensive, perhaps worried or fearful regarding the future of this nation called the United States. Since my childhood, I practically bled red, white and blue. I loved America with every beat of my heart, and in school (private) I fell in love with our founding, our Founding Fathers, and everything American including some Gospel and Country music (LOL). Unlike many who attended public schools, I learned about our Christian foundation that was/is based on godly principles; I learned that we are great because we are good, which according to de Tocqueville meant that we were godly. The root of our goodness was found embedded in the soil of our churches and in the hearts of honest, hard-working Christians.
However, something no one ever learns in school came upon me slowly over the last ten years: the startling, off-putting fact that the tares were growing up with the wheat. Though I do not intend to go into detail here, evil has been in the U.S. since the founding of this nation as well. Illuminists, Freemasons, and other secret societies were influential in the architectural design and art work, monuments and layout of Washington D.C., as well as in the wording of the drafting of important documents, big decisions, and so forth.
Nevertheless, God was behind the U.S. because the Pilgrims dedicated this nation to Him, and many of the Founding Fathers honored Him with their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. And somehow, Christianity and Americanism became synonymous, even inseparable. It seems that somewhere along the way of this American journey, Christians, so rooted in the fertile soil of America, came to forget that this world is not our home. And yes, we had something special here. We had a voice here. We had a vote here. We were a nation “of the people, by the people and for the people.” We were unique, unlike any other. But… this is no longer the case. And we MUST remember, that though we had something good, something even better is coming incredibly soon.
A transformation has taken place deep inside of me in recent years, which took that red, white and blue blood and transformed it to the blood of a heavenly Kingdom that is immanent.
It is brewing in hearts of some to do all they can to save this nation by calling congressmen, senators, and governors to let them know they are displeased, as well as going to court in the name of their Constitutional freedoms; they are even to the point of using their Constitutional right of building militias. Perhaps you are one of those who thinks that this tried and true method will work or at least ought to be attempted. But, I must inform you that it will not work. And no, I am not being pessimistic. In the past this may have worked. But, not today. And here are two very pertinent reasons why: #1 The American Era is over and an Era of Lawlessness has begun, and #2 God is leading us to do something else.
#1 Just yesterday I was doing research regarding older persecution cases in the U.S. in the past 10 years. I started off looking into 4 cases and found a whole lot more. Not only this, but I found that these cases ended up losing court battles time after time, appeal after appeal, and on top of this, the Supreme Court would not even hear their cases. Along with this, in 2020, churches across America were struck down in local courts, fined exorbitant amounts of money, and a Calvary Chapel in Nevada even lost at the Supreme Court level when the Court stated that governors had the right to close churches during times of emergencies. Not only this, but the courts have ruled in favor of abortion time and again, in favor of gay marriage, in favor of godless schools over praying Christian coaches, homosexual couples over Christian business owners, jailed people with Christian morals and released countless criminals. And what they are doing in the school is beyond diabolical, from teaching sexual debauchery and immorality as common place to evolution to common core math. I am grieved that any parent, and especially a Christian parent, would leave their child in the public school system at this point in time!!!
All over our television screens we have seen the lawlessness taking hold of this nation, from Portland to Seattle to Chicago to the U.S. Capitol to blatant voter fraud to senseless killings and thievery and violence in city after city after city across this land. And this is not just here in America but around the world.
Am I saying that defending the Constitution is a losing battle? Really, what I am saying is that this is not the battle we are to be involved in at this time. The battle God is calling us to is spiritual. And that battle we will win, for Christ has overcome the world! (John 16:33; Ephesians 6; 2 Corinthians 10:4-5).
#2 What does God want from His people? Succinctly put: Broken repentance and a return to holiness (Psalm 51:17; 1 Peter 1:15-16; Hebrews 12:14). What is God doing with America? For those who have ears to hear, He is calling her one last time of repentance. To those who cannot and will not hear, He is setting them up for impending judgment. And yes, He is a God who judges in this earth (Psalm 96 and 98). He is the one who sets up kingdoms and rulers and also is the one who brings them down (Daniel 2:21)
Jesus said the world would go mad before His return (2 Timothy 3). He told us that there would be overwhelming fear that would grip the hearts of people, that lawlessness would be the spirit of the end of the age, that crazy, mad insane times would pervade society, and that DECEPTION would be everywhere and even be a threat to God’s people (Matthew 24, Luke 17, Luke 21, Mark 13, 2 Thessalonians 2, Revelation).
We are in that exact place right now. This has been made completely, crystal clear in the year 2020. And Jesus is calling His bride to be without spot or wrinkle, to be washed with the water of the word, to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, to not be shaken nor troubled by what is happening around us but instead to rest in His perfect peace, preach the Gospel boldly to the perishing, and to stand up and lift up our heads for our redemption is drawing near! “Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 3 Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling…6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. 7 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge…10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! 11 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah,” (Psalm 46). His Kingdom is coming. His will is being done. Our God is still on the throne.
In the words of Pastor John MacArthur from the morning service of Sunday January 17, 2021, “The Kingdom of God is in no way linked to the kingdoms of men. And this is what sets the Church apart. Jesus said my Kingdom is not of this world. We face another inconsequential event politically in a few days [the inauguration]…meaningless to the Kingdom…” AMEN!
Think about the word “inconsequential”. This means that ALL that is transpiring politically, economically, socially, and legally is minor, unimportant, insignificant, paltry, trivial, irrelevant, meaningless and inappreciable in the grand scheme of things. No matter what the Democrats may boast about doing, no matter what the Republicans may be powerless to do, no matter what the president or governors may decree, no matter how unconstitutional things are, no matter what kind of persecution may fall upon the American church, no matter what hopes and dreams may be dashed, no matter what lifestyles may be stifled, no matter what vacations you may no longer be able to go on, no matter what vaccine mandates they make or what special COVID passes they may come up with, no matter what — let us be reminded, it is all inconsequential to God’s coming Kingdom and God’s divine plan.
Therefore, let’s keep this in mind as we move forward in the days ahead, and keep the main thing the main thing which is to preach the Gospel and be ready for the soon return of the King. Indeed, American Christians, let’s get our priorities straight — We are Christians first and foremost. Let’s be about our Father’s business. Crazy, mad, insane times are upon us. Lawlessness is the spirit of the age. Darkness has not only descended, but has permeated our society. More insanity is yet to come. It is time to quit thinking about preserving our own lives. It is time to quit trying to protect our bank accounts. It is time to quit playing church. It is time to get back to the word. It is time get serious about preaching the Gospel. It is time to wake up to the times in which we are living and realize that we are in the very last of the Last Days. It is time to repent of our sins, our lukewarmness, and be holy for He is holy and is coming back for a Church that is holy. Jesus is coming soon. Let’s be ready.
