According to Hillary Clinton “Christian beliefs have to be changed.” This video shows without hesitation Hillary’s feelings on Christianity. I always thought of her as a socialist; but for sometime now I have realized that she, and her associates, are crossing the line into Communism. Communism, the home of atheism.

Take the time now in order to view this video and hear for yourself what she says. Do we really want this woman running our country? I don’t and neither should you.

Marxist’s Movement in America and the demoralization of society:

This video answers the question – Why we are in decline in so many areas. it discusses the entire causal effects of Marxism and what has happened to America… Lengthy, but well worthy of viewing in it’s entirety. This is a very important election year.

This video is for all who want to know what and how it happened to America and those responsible for it’s political and culture decline. A must view for not only Christians, but for anyone who wants the truth…



This is so funny.  Yet so sad for America.

The fact that there are so many English Bible translations is both a blessing  and a problem. It is a blessing in that the Word of God is available to anyone  who needs it in an easy-to-understand, accurate translation. It is a problem in  that the different translations can create controversy and problems in Bible  studies, teaching situations, etc. The differences between the translations can  also be a subject of great division within the church body.

It is  probably wise to have access to at least two or three of the major translations  KJV (King James Version), NIV (New International Version), NAS (New American  Standard), NKJV (New King James Version), ESV (English Standard Version), NLT  (New Living Translation), for comparison’s sake. If a verse or passage in one  translation is a little confusing, it can be helpful to compare it side-by-side  with another version. It is difficult to say which translation is the “best.”  “Best” would be determined by a combination of the translation method personally  considered best and your interpretation of the textual data underlying your  translation. For example, the KJV and NAS attempted to take the underlying  Hebrew and Greek words and translate them into the closest corresponding English  words as possible (word for word), while the NIV and NLT attempted to take the  original thought that was being presented in Greek and Hebrew and then express  that thought in English (thought for thought). Many of the other translations  attempt to “meet in the middle” between those two methods. Paraphrases such as  The Message or The Living Bible can be used to gain a different perspective on  the meaning of a verse, but they should not be used as a primary Bible  translation.

There are many more Bible translations than the six  mentions above. It is wise to have a personal method for determining whether a  particular Bible translation is accurate. A good technique is to have a set of  Scripture verses you know well, and look those verses up in a translation you  are unsure of. A good idea is to look at some of the most common verses which  speak of the deity of Christ (John 1:1, 14; 8:58; 10:30; Titus 2:13) to make sure a  Bible translation is true to the Word of God. Despite the multitudes of English  Bible translations, we can be confident that God’s Word is truth, and that it  will accomplish His purposes (Isaiah  55:11; 2 Timothy  3:16-17; Hebrews  4:12).

I am re-blogging this from the site of Queen of Liberty.
if you catch no other video today, make sure this is the one. So powerful a message from our President, Ronald Reagan. A tribute to God, our nation and the Constitution’s First Amendment right to Religious Freedom.

Queen Of Liberty™

To My fellow Patriots: After this sad week in America, please watch this comforting Reagan video on God.
Thank you to John Silvius for sending me such a perfectly appropriate video.


Remember real hope & change?
Remember when America had a real leader & President?

04/28/2011 (Has this story of April 2011  come true?)

By: Robert Mock of Destination Y’Israel

Alan Keyes  Alan Keyes 

Alan Keyes, the former Senator from Maryland (1988, 2000, 2004) and the inveterate White House Republican contender for the office of the President of the United States (2000, 2004, 2008), sent out an urgent memo from Conservative NC. He claimed that a revolution to destroy the Constitutional government of the United States will be started by the political events that will crash the capitalist driven New York Stock exchange.  It may begin as early as May Day, May 1, 2011.

According to the urgent memo from Conservative NC, a conservative think-tank and defender of the American Constitution, titled, “Two Obama Officials implicated in Seditious Plot to Dismantle the U.S. Constitution”, they implicate a Soros-funded sedition to destroy the Constitutional government of the United States, its Bill of Rights, plus collapse the American economy by crashing the New York Stock Exchange by toppling the American giant banking company, JP Morgan Chase Bank.

The memo implicates Stephen Lerner, a former official of one of the country’s most-powerful unions, SEIU, who had a secret plan to “destabilize” the country of America.  He was caught on tape in a closed session at Pace University forum in late March and posted on the internet for thousands to listen. As Keyes wrote;

Alan Keyes – “March 19, 2011 Steve Lerner met with Abby Scher of Brooklyn College CUNY, Gerardo Dominguez of the Mexican American Workers Association, John Atols of ACORN and a number of other openly Marxist, Obama-faction activists.  Surrounded by fellow radicals , Mr. Lerner was unaware he was being recorded, and clearly felt comfortable enough to lay out his step by step plan already underway to “put a boot in the wheel” of the American economy – crashing the stock market and orchestrating a complete banking collapse – in an effort to force Marxism upon the masses. 

 Stephen Lerner with SEICU

Stephen Lerner with SEICU 

(Click here for Full U-Tube Audio with Transcripts of Stephen Lerner on the Union driven Assault to Destroy JP Moran, and the Constitutional Driven American government.)

Here was the same person who was fired from SEICU on November 2010 for spending millions of the union funds to organize a populous community appearing event to create the same crisis in America for a massive national revolt. Building upon the inequities and resentment of those affected by the world economic crisis and how it will be played out in the United States amongst the American populous is believed to be the “fuel” that will set the “fodder” to flames. As Alan Keyes continues to state his case:

Alan Keyes – “White House visitor logs show that Stephen Lerner has visited the White House repeatedly over the last two years.  At least one of these visits was arranged by the office of White House Political Director Patrick Gaspard – one of Lerner’s previous SEIU colleagues and former leader of one of the most notoriously militant SEUI chapters.  Gaspard, not coincidentally, is a close Obama advisor who is now the Executive Director of the Democratic National Party and a key player on Obama’s 2012 election team.

Obama made clear in a now infamous 2008 campaign rally that SEIU’s agenda is his agenda. Obama led a SEIU member chant after recalling how he started his early “organizing career” with SEIU troops on the ground, and went on to declare, “Just imagine what we can do together.  Just imagine a President whose life’s work is your (SEIU’s) work”! 

It seems we no longer need to imagine.  The present occupant of the Oval Office has brought sedition to the presidency – the highest office in the land.  Barack Obama’s own front group “Organizing for America” helped stage the recent Wisconsin “Days of Rage” protests that were notable for union-led violence, death threats and radical acts of intimidation, and now it appears he and his Administration may be connected to a far-left coalition of subversives actively plotting to collapse the American economy.

My friends, Stephen Lerner’s closed-attendance discussion at The Left Forum was not some simple academic and theoretical discussion of what revolutionary resistance might look like.  It was a high-level presentation of a very real, well thought out plan for economic terrorism already in play, and a well-received recruitment call to leftwing radical leaders of other Obama-faction organizations to join him.  Stephen Lerner’s terrorist plans, and actions of incitement and enlistment are outright sedition, all potentially prosecutable offenses.”

According to the even more controversial site, “What Does it Mean” who in an article dated March 29, 2011, titled, “New American Revolution Warned is Just Weeks Away” states:

What Does it Mean – “To fully understand the critical importance of this SVR report one first needs to know about the British organization called Common Purpose that has been described as “one of the most secretive and powerful groups virtually no one has ever heard of.”  With over 80,000 trainees and 18,000 graduates [2007 estimate] Common Purpose has infiltrated nearly every part of the government-police-medial-corporate-military structure of the United Kingdom, most important of these structures being the National Health Service (NHS) with the intended goal of being able to initiate a socialist communistic revolutionary takeover “at a moment’s notice…

Former Royal Navy Office Brian Gerrish has further warned that Common Purpose has infiltrated the highest reaches of the religious structure in the UK with the intention of destroying the sovereignty of the British people through revolution and has replicated its model for secret control in the United States through Harvard University’s AMP programme, and whose citizens, likewise, face the total destruction of their way of life.

Most insidious of the tactics employed by both Common Purpose and AMP “leaders” was their infiltration of the child protection services of both the US and UK over the past 20 years, where upon their identifying promising recruits (most often between the ages of 12-14), children were taken away from their parents to be “indoctrinated” in communist revolutionary theory and practice and have, in essence, turned the university systems of both of these Nations into “hotbeds” of socialist thought and ideology.

One of the most powerful “vehicles of communistic control” used by Common Purpose and AMP has been the government takeover of both the United Kingdom’s and United States health care systems, and which according to this SVR report has given to these sinister organizations unprecedented police-state powers to know everything about their citizens lives allowing for their total control.”

Can such activities actually transform the indomitable nation of freedom-loving nations, into a nation of oppression?  

What Does It Mean – “Upon Common Purpose and AMD “operatives” gaining sufficient power, this SVR report continues, their next step was to create an “economic apocalypse,” which they succeeded in doing by collapsing the Global economy in what is now referred to as The Panic of 2008.”        

The purpose for destroying the economies of the UK and US is original communistic ideology that states the proletariat will always revolt against a capitalistic system when the economic inequality of a Nation pushes over 50% of the population into poverty, and which in the United States shows that just 5% of the population controls 63,5% of all wealth and assets, and in the United Kingdom richest 10% are now 100 times better off than the poorest.

Even worse, in the United States alone, over 44 million people [14.3% of the population] are now reported to be using Food Stamps to keep themselves from starvation, over one-third are surviving on government handouts, an estimated 10 million have been thrown out of their homes, over 23% of these people are paying mortgages on homes whose value is less than what is owed, and, according to the Federal Reserve, the average American family has lost 23% of their household wealth since 2007 alone. Most shocking, however, of the grave statistics being reported about the United States is its true unemployment rate being nearly 23%, out of which 65 million Americans are told will never have any hope of getting a job as they have criminal records.

Now it is vital to understand these grim statistics because lying within them is the “key” to what will trigger these revolutions, after all, when a country like the United States, which has a population of 311 million, has 10 million forced out of their homes, 44 million receiving Food Stamps, 104 million surviving on government benefits, 71 million unemployed, and 65 million having no hope of finding work, then what you have is a “boiling pot” ready to explode at the slightest provocation.

And the provocation being offered to these millions of human beings in the UK and US lie in the hundreds of slick documentaries attacking Wall Street and London bankers and financial elites, the US Federal Reserve, massive government debt, housing bubble woes, corporate greed, wars, outsourced jobs and big oil, drug company and corporate elites.

Not a single day goes by without some new economic atrocity being pushed into the faces of these millions of human beings raising the level of their anger to catastrophic proportions, such as this past week’s New York Times report that America’s largest corporation, General Electric (GE), which earned over $14 Billion in profits, paid no taxes, and the Internet giant Google reported to have paid no taxes on its £1.6 Billion in profits in the UK.

Ready to “guide” these millions of people into revolution are the unions of both the UK and US, nearly all of whom have had their leaders “trained” by either Common Purpose or AMP, such as the head of the American United Auto Workers Union (UAW), Bob King, who this past week warned he was marshalling his membership for what he calls “the largest boycott in the history of the global economy,” but has been more likened to a “suicide bombing.”

Joining the UAW in this unprecedented attack upon the American economy is the most powerful labor organization in the United States, Service Employees International Union (SEIU), who President Obama has credited with being his most important ally in gaining the leadership of his country, and in Obama’s own words: ‘I’ve been working with SEIU before I was elected to anything.’ 

So what are the Lost Tribers of the House of Israel, who are awaiting their redemption, and restoration back into the brotherhood of the Jewish people, expected to do? We have a common messiah, the Maschiah ben Dovid (Messiah son of David) and a common G-d of Israel who has warned that we are to be expecting a “time of trouble” greater than the world has never known, to soon occur within our current lives today.  We would like to discount these parts of the sacred writings but cannot for the prophets of Israel work in unison with one another, speaking the prophetic warnings by the One G-d of Israel.

Daniel 12:1 – “At that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people (Jews of the House of Judah); and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time. And at the time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book.

And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament. And those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.”

Eric H. Holder, Jr, Attorney General United States  Eric H. Holder, Jr, the 82nd Attorney General of the United States

Former Senator Alan Keyes goes on to report that Eric Holder, the Attorney General for the United States Department of Justice today cannot be counted on to investigate the SEIU neither to prosecute Steven Lerner and associates while upholding the laws of the land, when the DOJ recently refused to prosecute the recent election fraud by the New Black Panthers. Neither has the DOJ been willing to investigate the American crisis during the 2008 national economic collapse much less disclosed to the American public what happened and why.  As Alan Keyes implored the American public:

Former Senator Alan Keyes – “This is no longer a matter of speculation.  The Marxist plan to smash our republic is alive and active within the corridors of power in America as never before.  Their plans to launch their latest assault on these United States is scheduled for, of course, May Day – May 1, 2011 – and has been sounded to their foot soldiers as a very real and potentially calamitous call to harm our nation. 

I warned when Obama first appeared on the national scene that he was at the least an academic Marxist surrounded by radicals, and a menace to the security, sovereignty and prosperity of the nation.  Now there is evidence in abundance to confirm my judgment.  We MUST force Congress to act NOW – before the evil forces that mean to destroy America are able to implement their plans.  The very survival of our country is at stake if we do not take seriously the threat within.  I implore you, fax Congress TODAY.”

This is why Alan Keyes was publically imploring the American public to publically write their United States Congressmen, to “Demand Congressional Hearing to Stop the Dismantling of America by sending the enclosed Petition” to investigate this reputed “conspiratorial call to anarchy in the United States, sedition and economic terrorism by Steven Lerner who was described by Business Insider in the same taped recording titled the Former SEIC Official reveals Secret Plan to destroy JP Morgan, crash the Stock Market, and redistribute wealth in America” with these words;

Business Insider – “A former official of one of the country’s most-powerful unions, SEIU, has a secret plan to “destabilize” the country. The plan is designed to destroy JP Morgan, nuke the stock market, and weaken Wall Street’s grip on power, thus creating the conditions necessary for a redistribution of wealth and a change in government. The former SEIU official, Stephen Lerner, spoke in a closed session at a Pace University forum last weekend…Lerner said that unions and community organizations are, for all intents and purposes, dead. The only way to achieve their goals, therefore–the redistribution of wealth and the return of “$17 trillion” stolen from the middle class by Wall Street–is to “destabilize the country.”

Lerner’s plan is to organize a mass, coordinated “strike” on mortgage, student loan, and local government debt payments–thus bringing the banks to the edge of insolvency and forcing them to renegotiate the terms of the loans.  This destabilization and turmoil, Lerner hopes, will also crash the stock market, isolating the banking class and allowing for a transfer of power.

Lerner’s plan starts by attacking JP Morgan Chase in early May, with demonstrations on Wall Street, protests at the annual shareholder meeting, and then calls for a coordinated mortgage strike. Lerner also says explicitly that, although the attack will benefit labor unions, it cannot be seen as being organized by them. It must therefore be run by community organizations.”

From every appearance, the G-d of Israel is allowing the dismantling of the national boundaries of all nations as He also allows the forces of darkness to begin to establish the final world empire on Planet Earth.  When all nations come together to go against Jerusalem and the Nation of Israel, then we will know that the final days are upon us. 

Zechariah 12:1-2 – Thus says the L-rd, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: ‘Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.

And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will be surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”

The “Signs of the Times” continue to rampage our Planet Earth with the Spring Revolutions in the Middle East Nations following the earthquakes in New Zealand and Japan.  The nuclear waste contamination the Pacific Ocean continues unabated as the weather across the United States is playing havoc with fires in Texas from border to border while Tornado Alley USA in Southeastern United States is now reaching beyond historical levels of twisters and human deaths. Yet as the prophetic voice of “The Nazarene” warned, this is only the “beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:6-8). 

2 Chronicles 33:1-25

Hezekiah was a god-fearing king who brought about reformation among the Israelites. His son Manasseh, however, was an evil ruler. He had watched his father walk with God and live according to Scripture. Yet he chose to ignore the Lord.

Manasseh worshipped false gods, even to the point of sacrificing his sons by fire in order to praise Molech. He practiced much evil—including witchcraft and sorcery— and led Israel astray, thereby provoking God to anger. The king, along with the people, paid a high price for his rebellion.

This story illustrates the Lord’s intolerance of a nation’s disregard toward Him. Now consider our country. We, too, are a nation that pushes God aside—one that has turned away from the only true God and embraced idols. Perhaps these aren’t statues of stone, but we worship money, sports ability, fame, and reputation, to name a few.

The United States of America was founded on biblical principles with the intent to guarantee freedom of worship. But over time, we have removed the Lord from many aspects of public life. Prayer in schools, for instance, was deemed unconstitutional. What was once a “nation under God” has turned into a country that tolerates a growing number of sins and yet belittles absolute truth.

If a nation turns its back on the Lord, His judgment is inevitable unless the people repent and make Him Lord once again. As believers, our responsibility is to pray that God would draw the heart of our country back to Himself—and to help the gospel and truth spread through our land.

There is no fear when we walk in the presence of our Father.

Some of what the 20th Century brought us:

There are basically two governmental systems on the earth today: One, the Atheistic socialistic system based on the idea of government being the center, and all things being supplied to the people by the government, the other is a capitalistic system based on the idea of man being the center, and government being there to ensure and protect the rights of the individual. This system was based on the Word of God, and all mention of God was referring to the one God, Jesus Christ. Today there emerges a new form of government here in America: “Social-Capitalism.”.”

History and the Bible has revealed that when these two systems come to agreement to proclaim “Peace and Safety”, He will then bring judgment on the whole earth. This judgment will come as travail upon a woman with child. The travail, spoken of here, are labor pains. A woman in childbirth does not have one labor pain and the child is delivered. She has many. They start out easy and far apart. Then they get harder and closer together until the baby comes.

Matthew 24 is a time pattern of events leading to the climax of the age in which the judgment of God is poured out upon the earth, just as it was in the Days of Noah. Jesus states, “Take heed that no man deceive you”.

“For many shall come in My name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.   For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” Matthew 24:5-7

Many, today, are proclaiming themselves to be the Messiah and have drawn millions to follow them. We hear of many wars. There have been constant rumors of war our whole lifetime. Jesus’ words of comfort were, “See that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

“. . .For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.”

This, too, we have witnessed. Many nations and kingdoms have risen themselves up against other nations. This is when the weak say, I am strong. Joel 3:10

There will be famines. In the last few years, famine has become a reality in many of the third world nations. Pestilence is disease. Many new deadly, never-heard-of diseases have come to light, killing millions; cancer being the main killer. But Aids will surpass cancer as the number one killer on the earth.

There will be Earthquakes. Earthquakes are so common that the news media only reports the most severe. To get national attention, the earthquakes must happen in populated areas and must register at least 6.5 on the Richter Scale.

We know these things because we, ourselves, have seen them. Some have experienced them and we have all watched these situations become progressively worse.

“All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:8

The word sorrow is the word ODIN and is translated travails in I Thessalonians 5:3. The beginning of sorrows are the birth-pangs that will bring forth the judgment.

Many Christians do not want to hear or believe. They are not even ready to accept what is ahead in the very near future.“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My name’s sake.  And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Matthew 24:9-12

This will be the time of persecution upon God’s people and the time of judgment upon the house of God. We are now in this time of judgment. The persecution has already begun. Be assured, it will get worse.

We live in a time when, on the surface, it would appear that Communism has failed and that satanic strongholds are coming down. Democracy has been declared the winner and the whole world will soon be living in “Peace and Safety”.Jesus said, “Let no man deceive you.” Over the pulpit, from so-called prophets, we are hearing that “satan has lost the battle, and we, the United States, are the victors!”Let no man deceive you”

Number one, the United States is no longer a Christian nation, and number two, in many ways, the United States is a more Godless nation than Russia.

Russia has not become as morally debased as the United States. Homo-sexuality and lesbianism is not rewarded, nor accepted, as it is in the United States. Abortion is not legal and the youth have not yet become the drug addicts as the youth in America.

We have sold our children to satan and allowed drugs to ruin their minds and lives. Promiscuous sex among our young has never been equalled in any generation. Drug-related crimes have never been equalled. Our prisons are full of our youth. Suicide is out of control because our youth have no hope. God has been stripped from their lives.

Our churches have left God at the door and do what they want. There is no power in the church to stop what the government has become. We are no longer a government of the people, by the people and for the people. We have watched the greed, corruption and immorality take over the government until it has become a Godless debasement; a travesty of what it was intended to be. We live in the day when “Peace and Safety” is being proclaimed. “Wake up to the truth of the Word of God.” The travail has already begun upon this nation. The labor pains are getting closer together.

When asked, “when will the last day(s) be; I find I have no honest answer.” So, I reverse the question by stating “When I believe the last days began?” The answer I give is 1914,  the onset of the 20th Century and the beginning of the first World War; the war that was supposed to end all wars. But, instead, it established the great nations that we need to take note of in our day. World War I established the United States as the most powerful, most wealthy and the most productive nation on earth, one nation under God.

In March of 1917, Nicholas II of Russia was overthrown. This paved the way for the beginning of Communism. In November of 1917, the Bolshevik Revolution took place and Lenin was established as the new leader of Russia. This was the beginning of Communism; and the Marxist socialist form of government came upon the earth. Also, on November 2, 1917, the Balfour Proclamation was signed to allow Israel to return to their ancient land.

Russia withdrew from World War I when the upheaval came in their government. It was almost one year to the day that the war ended. The stage was set for these nations which would be involved in the end of the age.

World War I ended November 11, 1918. At the end of World War I, President Wilson tried to start the League of Nations which ended in failure.

All these events happened in November of 1917. Thirty years and six months later, May 14, 1948, Israel was recognized as a sovereign nation. They had not been a nation since 586 B.C., or for 2534 years. Now, the same people are in the same land under the same name, an event that only God could have ordained.

At the time of the Second World War, Russia was a backward, ill-equipped nation with virtually no power. But with the stroke of the pen, at the meeting at Yalta, one-half of Europe was enslaved by the Russian bear. This had to be the blackest day in History. Russia’s trek to becoming a world power had begun. By 1948, Russia had a firm grip on Europe. Russia expanded until her communistic, atheistic grip was felt all over the earth.

In 1945, the United Nations was formed to insure peace on planet Earth. Man proclaimed that he could keep peace without the Prince of Peace. Peace was, and still is, in the hands of man, instead of the hands of God.

In 1948, the United States formed NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, to insure the protection of Western Europe. In 1955, Russia formulated the Warsaw Pact to arm and protect Eastern Europe. The arms race and the Cold War were in full swing. The two great powers on earth were established, each side developing more and more weapons; more powerful than the mind could ever imagine. Man was truly turning the plow shares into swords.

At that time, Russia and the United States were spending, an ever-increasing amount of their nation’s income on weapons and armament. Starvation and homelessness were increasing in both nations and they were justifying their waste by the activity of the other. Carl Sagan (who proclaimed nuclear winter to the world), has stated that, at this time, Russia and the United States have amassed approximately 60,000 nuclear warheads.

Arms negotiations have reduced the total nuclear arsenal only about 3% and the world proclaims this to be a great victory. In the same article, “Too Many Weapons in the World”, which appeared in the Arizona Republic dated February 4, 1990, Carl Sagan stated that, quote, “…perhaps one percent of the nearly 60,000 nuclear weapons in the world might be enough to generate a nuclear winter.” End of quote.

A limited nuclear attack from either side would produce nuclear winter and would eliminate crop production. Mass starvation would follow. Common sense tells us that there are no safe levels of nuclear weapons; the same as there is no safe way to shoot yourself in the head.

We read in I Thessalonians 5:3,

“When they shall say, Peace and Safety…”

Who are the “they”? This is not God or God’s people. The “they” are those who have made themselves responsible for peace and safety. This is in the hands of men in Russia and the United States. One is based on Atheistic ideology, an enslaver of the people; the other is based on a Godly ideology, a liberator of the people.

How could two diametrically opposed nations agree on anything? And yet, God said they would agree. When they do agree, He will bring sudden destruction upon them, and they shall not escape. This destruction will come from God.

God has given us many warnings in His Word as to what to watch for. We should not be deceived by outward appearances. We should discern by the Spirit of God and act accordingly.

We read in II Corinthians 3:17;

“Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty”. (Freedom)

Where the Spirit of the Lord is absent, there is bondage.

After the Second World War, we began to hear about civil rights. This was to insure the rights of all mankind. Certain groups demanded their civil rights, or equal rights, with others. The United States began to proclaim that all people on earth had civil rights.

We, the United States, began demanding these rights with threats of withholding financial aid from those nations who did not grant their people civil rights. The end result of civil rights was that the God-given rights, and rights granted under the Constitution, were stripped away under the guise that certain rights had to be taken away to insure the rights of others.

Thus, the loss of rights and freedoms ensued, and government has taken total control of the people. We have rights as long as we don’t try to use them or question the right of government control in our lives.

What we have left is a system of compromise. No right or wrong, no black or white; until, the only rights and freedoms we have, are those that are agreed to by the government.

This brings us to today. The year of 1989 saw tremendous changes made in the communist world. On the surface, it would appear that communism has failed. The old, She Bear (Russia), has turned on her back and kicked up her heels. The news media proclaims that Communism has failed and Democracy is the clear winner. Now the whole earth can live in freedom.

But I warn you, there has been no great revival in the Spiritual realm. Satan is the great deceiver, a liar and a murderer from the beginning. Do not be deceived by what appears on the surface.

Instead, let’s view what has happened. Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hungary and other Eastern European nation’s economies have collapsed.

Russia, whose economy is in no better shape, could no longer maintain the support they gave to these countries. Massive debt was drowning their economy in interest payments to the West, so Russia opened the gates, tore down the walls and said to the United States, “You have proclaimed civil rights, all these are yours. You feed them, house them and pay their debts”. And the United States said, “What do we do now?”

Egg has become very evident on the face of the United States because of our 16+ Trillion dollar debt. Our national and trade deficit has drowned our economy in red ink.

Our first objective is to cut defense spending. The more we spend on Eastern Europe, the more Russia has to spend to increase their economy, or to spend ever more on defense. Under the facade of Arms Talks and Arms Control, Russia has lulled the world, and this nation, into a false sense of security.

But I say to God’s people, don’t be taken in by the proclamation of peace. We are warned many times in the Word that this is one of the signs of the end of the age; when man would proclaim “Peace and Safety” for the inhabitants of planet Earth.

The whole earth, and especially God’s people, are desiring peace. Our youth have lived their whole lives under the threat of a nuclear holocaust and will grab at any hope of peace. Jeremiah said, “For they have healed the hurt of the daughters of my people slightly, saying, “Peace, Peace, when there is no Peace”. And there is NO peace.

Do not let your guard down! This is the time to press into God and not settle back on your lees and become complacent. If we believe that what happened in Eastern Europe was a victory for the United States, we will only be fooling ourselves because God’s hand of judgment is on this nation, also. It may look like God’s hand of blessing is on this nation, but we need to understand that God will judge sin. This nation has become a sinful, godless country as far as our government is concerned.

God spoke against this nation in Deuteronomy 32. If God was not speaking of the United States, He was speaking to a nation exactly like it. We can be assured that our fate will be no different from prophesied in this text.

Deuteronomy speaks of Jesh’urun, the “righteous ones”. Certainly, in the beginning of this nation, we were the “righteous ones”, founded on the Word of God; by Godly men proclaiming that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the King of the earth. It is said of George Washington, when they wanted to make him King instead of President: He said, “This nation has one King and He is Jesus Christ.”

“But Jesh’urun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

They provoked Him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they Him to anger.

They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.” Deuteronomy 32:15-17

This nation has become fat (wealthy) and has rebelled against God, as that of Laodicea. This nation has forsaken God and lightly esteemed the Rock that it was founded upon. This nation has provoked God to jealousy and anger with strange gods. This nation has sacrificed unto devils.

We allow our children to listen to rock music that has gotten continually worse with its message of rebellion, revolution, euthanasia, drugs, sex and suicide. We justify them listening to this because we listen to so-called Christian rock, country and contemporary Christian music and refuse to take a Godly stance and be examples to our children. If we will not serve God with a whole heart, clean and pure, how can we expect our children to?

Deuteronomy 32:17 states, these are new gods that have come up and our fathers knew them not. These gods have come up since the `60’s and God’s people have become complacent and hardened to where sin is no longer considered sin. These gods are acceptable to their compromised walk in God.

“Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.  And when the Lord saw it, He abhorred them, because of the provoking of His sons, and of His daughters.  And He said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.” Deuteronomy 32:18-20

Deuteronomy proclaims that this nation is unmindful and has forgotten the Rock that formed them. God has taken notice of this and He is abhorred because of the provoking of His sons and daughters. He has hidden His face from this nation to see what their end will be. He speaks of a froward generation and children of no faith.

He is only speaking of this generation since the `60’s. A great percentage of our children have no faith and do not recognize God as having any power or control in their lives whatsoever. Many young children do not even know God exists because we have failed to teach them. They only serve the wicked one. They do not try to hide their sin, but rather they flaunt it and are proud of it.

This is a froward generation. The word froward means “perverse or perverted”; a generation that has no sense of morality or conscience. They can lie, steal and even murder with no remorse, but rather with a haughty, bragging attitude toward their perverted way of life.

Most believe that they are getting away with this sin and abomination in the sight of God. But God has pronounced His judgment on Jeshurun and this judgment is on the United States as surely as the Word of God is sure.

“For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.” Deuteronomy 32:22

God proclaims He would set on fire the foundations of the mountain. This is volcanic activity. This was the beginning of God’s judgment on this nation. For the first time in this nation’s history, we had a volcanic explosion on Mt. Saint Helen, in 1980.

“I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.

They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.” Deuteronomy 32:23-24

God warns that He will heap mischiefs upon Jesh’urun, sending arrows upon them. Arrows are guided missiles that are launched by a bow, or rocket booster. God may be referring to nuclear weapons. We will be “burnt with hunger and devoured with burning heat”.

There is famine, homelessness and destitution on a large-scale. This has come to pass in the `80’s. Burning heat has scorched this nation, along with record cold, floods, forest fires and earthquakes.

“The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.” Deuteronomy 32:25

We have the sword without: the threat of armed attack, both nuclear and conventional, are ever-present. Terror within: teams of terrorists have been sent to this nation from many nations and we can expect an increase in terrorist activity. This is going to affect the whole spectrum of society, the young men and woman, the children and the old.

“For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!  How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the Lord had shut them up?” Deuteronomy 32:28-30

God declares that this nation is void of counsel, having no understanding.

In times of old, there was always Godly council who advised the leaders of nations. This has been replaced with think-tanks and witchcraft, who have no understanding of what God is doing. When a nation, like Iran, could hold our embassy workers for 444 days; when nations can take our people hostage and we do nothing; and the only victory we have is to attack very small, virtually unarmed countries, – – – truly, one is chasing a thousand. We have been put to flight (running scared) because our rock has forsaken us and has shut us up. Our enemies are our judges now.

“For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.” Deuteronomy 32:31

God reveals His judgment:

“To me belongeth vengeance, and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.” Deuteronomy 32:35

Our foot has slid and our calamity is at hand. Things will make haste in coming upon us as travail upon a woman with child. He will ask, “Where are your gods in whom you trusted and made sacrifice to?”

“And He shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,  Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.” Deuteronomy 32:37-38

Where are the ones you have depended on to feed you, house you and pay your bills? Where are the ones you depend on for your health and your answer to all needs and desires? Where are the ones you look to for the answers to all your problems, the ones you desire to have rule and reign over your life?

When this time of wrath comes upon the earth, God says to go to those gods and let them help you and be your protection.

“And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day.  And the idols (gods) He shall utterly abolish.” Isaiah 2:17-18

Revelation 9:6 says “And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.”

God makes us a promise:

“If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.   I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.” Deuteronomy 32:41-42

God has set His hand to the glittering sword and He will not turn back. This nation will not repent and God’s judgment is sure.

We need to view what happened in Eastern Europe with our Spiritual eyes. It proclaims loudly that God put in the hearts of those people to be free, to throw off the shackles of tyranny and walk as free people.

God used this to open the doors of these nations so the gospel of the kingdom could go in. In this day of harvest, the gospel will be proclaimed to every nation, kindred and tongue and people. Revelation 14:6

We need to know one thing; when that which is called God and that which is called satan agree, it has become an abomination and God will destroy it.

When the subject of Nuclear War is discussed, it immediately brings fear. And it should, to those who do not know God. But to those who know Him, this should be the time of standing on His promises!

“Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, My servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: Behold, My servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, My servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed:

Behold, My servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.  And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto My chosen: for the Lord God shall slay thee, and call His servants by another name:” Isaiah 65:13-15

 “Wake up America” – There is no fear when we walk in the presence of our Father.

America Laments!

In order to completely understand God’s Word, one must have a basic knowledge of Biblical typology. We see many references to certain cities and countries in the Bible. The names of these cities and countries each have a meaning which gives added insight into God’s Word.

Although we know the writers of the Bible were writing for the time in which they lived, the words they wrote were also written for our time. Paul explained this in his letter to the Corinthians:

“Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” I Corinthians 10:11

All the events and happenings that happened in the Old Testament are for our admonition upon whom the ends of the world (age) have come. Paul also explained this concept in his letter to the Colossians:

“Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.” Colossians 2:16-17

All of Israel’s holidays, their new moon celebrations, and their sabbath days were only a shadow of things to come. A shadow is not the real thing. It is only the reflected image of the things that would come upon the body of Christ.

The Holy Spirit directed the prophet Hosea to reveal to the body of Christ another example of how God explains the Word of God:

“I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.” Hosea 12:10

God used similitudes when He spoke to the prophets in dreams and visions. The word similitudes means “to be like or to resemble.” God uses many similitudes in His Word. And it is only by the Holy Spirit anointing that we can see the complete picture of what God is showing us. For example, the prophet Isaiah gave us insight how we are to study God’s Word:

“For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:” Isaiah 28:10

As we begin to put precept (idea) upon precept, and line upon line, then when we see something in the New Testament, and put idea upon idea and line upon line in the Old Testament, then we can come to the understanding the prophets were not only prophesying about their time, but were also prophesying about our time also.

Most scholars agree Jeremiah wrote the book of Lamentations. As we look at Jeremiah’s writings in the book of Lamentations, we can see the similitudes between what Jeremiah wrote and what Jesus revealed to John on the isle of Patmos by putting precept upon precept and line upon line, here a little and there a little. For example, Jeremiah wrote:

“How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people! How is she become as a widow! She that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces, how is she become tributary!” Lamentations 1:1

Jeremiah wrote about a city, and we realize he was writing about the city of Jerusalem and the Israeli people. But with Spiritual eyes, we can also see His prophecies fit Mystery Babylon in the book of Revelation. First, Jesus reveals to John that Mystery Babylon is called a great city:

“And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” Revelation 14:8

Let’s discover who Mystery Babylon is, and why she is called a great city:

“And the light of the candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.” Revelation 18:23

The light of the candle is the electric light. The electric light was created in the United States. The electric light lit up the whole world. We also know her merchants were also the great men of the earth. And there is no denying, her sorceries have deceived all nations. The word sorceries is the Greek word PHARMAKEIA. We get the word pharmacy (drug store) from this Greek word.

So then who is Mystery Babylon? Only one nation fits all these descriptions, and that is the United States. Her merchants truly are the great men of the earth. Henry Ford gave us the assembly line. Westinghouse gave us appliances. Carnegie gave the world steel. Firestone gave us tires for our cars. Rockefeller gave us finance and petroleum. The list goes on and on of the great men who have given the world this modern way of life. We also know the United States is the world’s drug store, both legally and illegally.

As Jeremiah wrote: “How doth the city sit solitary!” Jesus declared to John about the fall of Babylon. The same Spirit that anointed Jeremiah is the same Spirit the resurrected Jesus was anointed with when He spoke to John on the Isle of Patmos. So as we look at the similitudes Jeremiah wrote, we can discover what the United States has to look forward to.

Mystery Babylon was called a city. Why? It was because the United States became a great nation as cities become great cities, and that is by development, annexation, and the purchasing of large tracts of land. Looking again at the words of Jeremiah, we read:

“How doth the city sit solitary that was full of people! How is she become as a widow! She that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces, how is she become tributary!” Lamentations 1:1

Jeremiah exclaimed, “How doth the city sit solitary!” The word solitary means “being all alone.” The United States sits all alone. All her allies have forsaken her, and she has been left alone to fight her battles, and work out all the problems she has created for herself.

Jesus spoke of the great might Mystery Babylon had in her historic past:

“And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:18

With her great wealth, the United States did, indeed, rule over the kings of the earth. Then Jesus explains to John what will happen to her:

“Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgment come.” Revelation 18:10

Yes, God’s judgment is coming upon the United States. And when it comes, her destruction will come in one hour. Jeremiah also prophesied the downfall of the United States:

“Because the Lord hath spoiled Babylon, and destroyed out of her the great voice; when her waves do roar like great waters, a noise of their voice is uttered.” Jeremiah 51:55

How does this great city sit all alone? It is because the Lord has spoiled her, and taken out of her the great voice. No one listens to this nation any more. They mock her leaders, and laugh at their financial advice.

Jeremiah continues, “. . . that was full of people . . .” The United States is truly full of people of mixed nationalities. With all the illegal aliens and immigration from around the globe, the United States has more people than it can support. Her cities are full of `street people’ who are only existing in cars, tents, and anything else that will give them shelter. Jesus explained to John about the mixed multitude:

“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:” Revelation 17:1

By Jesus’ words, we discover another title given to the great city, Mystery Babylon – – – and that is `The Great Whore’. Jesus proclaimed this great whore sits on many waters. Then Jesus explains the meaning of the many waters the great whore is sitting upon:

“And He saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are people, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” Revelation 17:15

The waters are people who have immigrated to the United States, from all over the earth, from every nation and tongue. Jeremiah also made the same observation concerning Mystery Babylon:

“O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is come, and the measure of thy covetousness.” Jeremiah 51:13

Jeremiah discloses another aspect of the Great City sitting upon many waters. And that is that the United States is full of lakes, rivers, and streams. She also sits between two great oceans. She is also abundant in vast treasures of natural resources. But her end is on the way because of her covetousness.

Jeremiah continues exclaiming in wonderment, “. . . How is she become as a widow!” When Jesus revealed Mystery Babylon to John on the Isle of Patmos, He declared to him:

“How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.” Revelation 18:7

The word deliciously means “to live in luxury.” Who can deny that the United States has lived in luxury compared to the rest of the world for many years?

But God has promised this nation will suffer torment and sorrow. The word torment means “to torture” and the word sorrow means “mourning and suffering.”

Her citizens have proclaimed in their hearts they live as the queen of all nations and they are no widow, and will see no sorrow. A widow is one who has lost her husband or provider. This nation has lost their provider because they have turned their backs on the one who made them a great nation. Who have they lost? They have lost their Comforter, Christ Jesus.

This nation has turned their backs on God in everything they do – – – in the laws they pass in their court decisions and in their individual lives.

Again, putting line upon line, word upon word we look to the prophet Isaiah:

“And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.

Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:

But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.

For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.” Isaiah 47:7-10

Even the prophet Zephaniah spoke about the city that dwelt carelessly:

“This is the rejoicing city that dwelt carelessly, that said in her heart, I am, and there is none beside me. How is she become a desolation, a place for beasts to lie down in! Every one that passeth by her shall hiss, and wag his hand.” Zephaniah 2:15

This nation has been given over to witchcraft with its astrology charts and the worship of false gods. Every false religion has been given place in this nation. Witchcraft is blatantly undermining the minds of our children in the schools’ textbooks, and in children’s books with such series as `Harry Potter’ etc. Instead they have shut out God, their provider. He has been removed from the home, the school, and the government. This is why she will sit as a widow, and no one will come to her aid. Jesus explained her downfall to John on the Isle of Patmos:

“And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!

For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, and cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, the great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! For in one hour is she made desolate.” Revelation 18:16-19

All these warnings were given to John on the Isle of Patmos. The prophet Jeremiah also wrote of this time:

“Her cities are a desolation, a dry land, and a wilderness, a land wherein no man dwelleth, neither doth any son of man pass thereby.” Jeremiah 51:43

God has given us His Word. The cities of the United States will become a desolation, a wilderness, where no man dwells. What is her defense? Jeremiah warns this nation:

“Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify the height of their strength, yet from Me shall spoilers come unto her, saith the Lord.” Jeremiah 51:53

This nation has tried to develop a missel defense system since the 1980’s, and none of them work. And even if they could develop this system, it would make no difference. They have forsaken their defense system, and that is the Lord Jesus Christ.

Because of these abominations, God’s hand is truly upon this nation, and it is about to come down hard in its finality. This nation has declared itself to be the `Queen of all nations!’ But she will sit as a widow, abandoned and mocked at by the world.

As Jeremiah declared: “. . . she that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces,” Lamentations 1:1c.

This nation was the greatest nation on the face of the earth. Now she has become tributary, or forced to pay tribute. One of the ways this nations pays this tribute is in the form of interest paid to other countries who have loaned her vast sums of money. Another way the people of this nation pay tribute is through individual home loans. Home owners are so heavily indebted, they can only pay the interest (tribute) on their loans.

The word tributary means “forced labor.” Today, a laborer in the work force must work until June (that is six months) just to pay their taxes to the government. Thus, taxes, can also be considered tribute.

Jeremiah continues his revelation of the United States:

“She weepeth sore in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks: among all her lovers she hath none to comfort her: all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they are become her enemies.” Lamentations 1:2

Today there are many who are weeping sore in the night. The word sore means “to weep bitterly in grief and humiliation.” There are many tears upon the cheeks of the people who have lost all they have worked for all their lives. Their homes are being repossessed by the thousands. Their incomes, their very livelihoods, have been wiped out because many more thousands have lost their jobs. Their retirement funds are gone because of bad investments by those who were put in charge of these funds. Tears are on their cheeks as they witness their savings and investments wiped out by Wall Street and `panzi schemes’.

More tears appear when they get the message their son or daughter has been killed in their government’s instigated wars. Worse yet, they see their loved ones come home maimed for life with arms, legs, and eyes missing. Many are disfigured for life. Those who escape their misfortunes are saddened greatly, when they see what has happened to the government they looked up to with admiration and respect. Now they hang their head in shame when they hear of all the crooked and irresponsible politicians who have sold this country down the drain.

The last Presidential election was run on the theme of change. Both sides proclaimed the great need for change. What we need to stop and realize is that there has been nothing but change in the government for the last sixty years. As we look at the government today, we can hardly recognize it as the same country our forefathers fought and died for to make us free from tyranny. Few people today even read or have a copy of `The Declaration of Independence’ with its immortal words:

“When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the cause which impel them to the separation. . .”

The great statesmen who wrote these words were tired of the tyranny imposed upon them by Great Britain. These men risked their lives and their fortunes to become free from Great Britain’s rule of power over them. They fought the most powerful nation on earth to be free.

They drafted the Constitution, which is the most precious document ever written, in which man should be governed. Yet the present ruler, President Barach Obama, who was sworn to uphold this Constitution, broke the very tenants of the Constitution because he was not born in this country. This is one of the very basic tenants of the Constitution, which states the President must have been legally born in the United States.

The Supreme Court, who was sworn to uphold the Constitution, turned aside from hearing evidence against this illegal alien. The Congress, both the House and the Senate, ignored this evidence, as did the electoral college which elected him as President.

Yes, there are many tears on the cheeks of those who are aware of this farce and miscarriage of justice. Our national anthem contains the words “land of the free, and home of the brave.” These words should be changed to “the land of the slave, and the home of the betrayed.”

The tears being shed in our day, are only an example of those tears that will be shed when God’s judgment is complete upon this nation. Jeremiah continues:.

” . . . among all her lovers she hath none to comfort her: all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they are become her enemies.” Lamentations 1:2b

“. . . all her lovers. . .” Those this nation have bought with their gifts and handouts have all forsaken her. Jesus forewarned this in His revelation to John:

“The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, and saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off.” Revelation 18:15-17

Yes, all her purchased friends have forsaken her. All who have taken her handouts and giveaways will be of no comfort to her when God’s judgment is finalized. All those who were her friends will turn their back on her – – – and their whole desire will be to see the fall of Mystery Babylon.

What will become of this great nation when God’s judgment is finalized? The prophet Jeremiah had much to say about the fall of Babylon:

“Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed. We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for their judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.” Jeremiah 51:8-9

The word healed means “to make healthy, to be healed of personal and national distresses.” This nation, and its people, are in distress because of the collapse of the dollar, and because of the financial mess the government has gotten them into. Jeremiah also exclaimed:

“Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord’s hand, that made all the earth drunken: The nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.” Jeremiah 51:7

The United States was a golden cup in the Lord’s hand. But what has the United States done with this golden cup. Jesus tells John:

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.” Revelation 17:4

The United States has filled God’s golden cup with abominations, filthiness, and fornication – – – everything God hates. Jeremiah also discloses:

“And Babylon shall become heaps, a dwelling place for dragons, an astonishment, and an hissing, without an inhabitant.” Jeremiah 51:37

When God’s judgment is final, there will not be a living person left in this nation. Those who survive God’s judgment are those who believe and live by His Word. Jeremiah forewarns all God’s people:

“Flee out of the mist of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; He will render unto her a recompense.” Jeremiah 51:6

God warns His people to flee this nation before her judgments come. This same message was given to John on the isle of Patmos:

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

Those who remain in this nation will receive of her plagues. What are her plagues?

“Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.” Revelation 18:8

The phrase utterly burned means “to be burned up or consumed totally by fire.” Jeremiah again warns:

“My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the Lord.” Jeremiah 51:45

Can anyone look around, and not know God’s judgment hand is upon this nation? So, how will her destruction come? Again, Jesus reveals to John:

“And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.” Revelation 18:21

The United States will be destroyed by violence. And she will not be found any more at all. So, how will her destruction come? Jeremiah gives us added insight into her destruction:

“At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved, and the cry is heard among the nations.” Jeremiah 50:46

She will be destroyed with such force, it will move the earth on its axis. And her cry will be heard among the nations. What could cause such force? There is only one thing that will move the earth on its axis, and that is nuclear bombs. This is what Peter revealed by the Spirit to all who will hear:

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness?” II Peter 3:10-11

The Day of the Lord is His Day of Judgment. And it will come as a thief in the night, undetected. The heavens will pass away with the same great noise Jeremiah spoke about. The elements (or the splitting of the atoms) shall melt with fervent heat, and the earth where these bombs hit will be burned up. And all the works of man will melt with this fervent heat.

Peter asked, when we know and understand what God has planned for this nation and people, “What kind of people ought we to be in all holy conversation (way of life) and godliness? Praise God for His warnings!

As we look further into the words of Jeremiah, we discover he has a lot to say about the daughters Zion. We need to know and understand that the daughters in the old Testament represent the church and its people in the New Testament.

“The ways of Zion do mourn, because none come to the solemn feasts: all her gates are desolate: her priests sigh, her virgins are afflicted, and she is in bitterness.” Lamentations 1:4

Zion is mourning. Why is the church system mourning? It is because none come to her solemn feasts. The churches’ solemn feasts are their Sunday services. The attendance in the church services has been, and is still dwindling. Many mega churches with their multi-million dollar debt can no longer meet their payments because their attendance and giving has dropped off. Because of this, the leaders of these mega churches are putting extra pressure on the people to meet these obligations. This has not only affected the mega churches, but even the church on the corner who has expanded its outreach ministries to draw in more people. But the people they draw in only stay until the bite is put on them to meet the needs that are expounded to them.

Only the churches who are teaching the people the true word of God are being blessed by God. These have used the money God provided frugally, and are preparing for the time of lack. These have stayed free of debt and are able to use the money God supplied for the good of the people.

We need to ask ourselves, “Why would God send His people to the world’s extortion system (banks) to get the money to build a building in which to worship His name?” Many of these mega churches have violated the Word of God by not looking to Him for their supply. In their own strength, they use all kind of man-made plans to get the people to give, give, give to support their opulent life style.

This is why Jeremiah stated, “. . . all her gates are desolate . . .” The gates Jeremiah used should have been translated “doors.” Too many churches have truly become desolate buildings, sitting empty and silent. Many churches only have a hand full of people, strapped to taking care of the building’s expenses and paying the pastor to meet his needs. Many pastors find it necessary to preach at two or more churches.

Jeremiah proclaims “. . . her priests sigh. . . “ The word sigh means “to mourn and groan.” These pastors have a hard time making a living because they are locked into a denomination. If they lose attendance, they are removed and replaced. So the pastors cannot proclaim the true Word of God because it would be offensive to the elders of the church who are supporting them. These hirelings mourn and groan because they know they must tickle the ears of the silly woman who pay their salary.

Jeremiah continues “. . . her virgins are afflicted. . .” The word virgin means “those who are separate.” Many of the denominational churches still have those who remember when God moved in their midst. And they desperately hang on to the hope that those who are in charge of their congregations will see the light and repent of their ways, and let the Spirit have reign again.

Jeremiah stated those who are separated unto the Lord are afflicted. The word afflicted means “to grieve.” Many sit Sunday after Sunday, listening to the same lukewarm sermons, and they are grieved because they know God is not in the message, and they are truly in bitterness. But they also know the church down the street has the same message, and a similar organization who expounds the same half truths.

So one may ask, “What is going to become of the church in our day who have forsaken the One they are supposed to represent?” By the influence of the Holy Spirit, Peter reveals to us what the church system can expect:

“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” I Peter 4:17

God is going to bring judgment upon the house of God. And what is to become of those churches that do not obey the gospel of God? Peter continues:

“And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” I Peter 4:18

If the righteous will scarcely be saved, how bad is it going to be for the ungodly and sinner sitting in those churches. Jeremiah speaks of this coming judgment upon God’s house:

“Her adversaries are the chief, her enemies prosper; for the Lord hath afflicted her for the multitude of her transgressions: her children are gone into captivity before the enemy.” Lamentations 1:5

Jeremiah states, “. . . her adversaries are the chief. . .” The word adversaries means “one who brings oppressive afflictions.” Who are the churches’ adversaries? She has many. The ACLU will punish and persecute any person or body of people who stand up for the gospel of Christ. The government has become the churches’ adversary by legislating God, or even the mention of His name, from every government or public facility.

Other adversaries of the church include false religions, such as the Moslem, the Hindus, the Mormons, the Catholics, and all other false religions. Witchcraft also mocks and make fun of those who are walking, or attempting to walk in righteousness.

The news media shies away from any mention of Christ or His church. Yet, we hear them call the Moslem emons, holy men. All the teachings of these false religions have crept into the church. The prophet Jeremiah addressed this fact:

“We are confounded, because we have heard reproach: shame hath covered our faces: for strangers are come into the sanctuaries of the Lord’s house.” Jeremiah 51:51

Strangers, who do not know Christ or His Word, have crept into the churches. They occupy the pulpits with their fancy religious uniforms, and the people never question what they are being taught.

Jeremiah states, “. . . her enemies prosper. . .”. Those who have become the adversaries of Christ do appear to be prospering, but when God’s judgment comes, there will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth, when they find out who is really in control of planet earth. The apostle Paul tells us:

“For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ.” Philippians 3:18

Those who are adversaries of God are enemies of the cross of Christ. Why would God allow these enemies of His church to prosper? Jeremiah tells us:

“. . . for the Lord hath afflicted her for the multitude of her transgressions . . .” Lamentations 1:5c

Judgment will come upon the church for the same reason it will come upon the world. It is because of their transgressions, their sin, and breaking of God’s laws. Because of this, God’s people have gone into captivity to the world. They no longer have the strength or intestinal fortitude to stand up against the enemies of Christ. Jeremiah explained this:

“And from the daughter of Zion all her beauty is departed: her princes are become like harts that find no pasture, and they are gone without strength before the pursuer.” Lamentations 1:6

All the beauty has departed from the daughter of Zion (the church). The word beauty means ” glory and majesty.” All her glory and majesty is gone. No one fears or even respects the church any more. In the past, when the church spoke the people feared their words and repented. Now their words are made mockery of.

Jeremiah proclaims, “. . . her princes are become like harts that find no pasture. . .”. The word hart means “deer.” Jeremiah is telling us that when the pastors are offered a better job, they leave, looking for greener pastures – – – constantly looking for more money, better benefits, and more people. When they find their greener pastures they proclaim they have succeeded. What one needs to realize is God did not change their job. Instead, they moved on only to satisfy their own fleshly desires for more, more, and more.

Jeremiah proclaims, “. . . they are gone without strength before the pursuer.” The pursuer is the spirit of darkness, whom they serve. He is the god of this world and the head of all fleshly desires. Matthew gives the chief princes this warning:

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? And in Thy name have cast out devils? And in Thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7:21-23

All those who do what looks like great works, but are not done in the name of Christ and by the Spirit of Christ, their works are in vain, and these works will not be honored by God. Jeremiah continues his lamentations against the church:

“Her filthiness is in her skirts; she remembereth not her last end; therefore she came down wonderfully: she had no comforter. O Lord, behold my affliction: for the enemy hath magnified himself.” Lamentations 1:9&10

Her uncleanness is in her skirts. The word skirts means “the high priest’s robes.” The church has defiled her robes of righteousness. Therefore, as Jeremiah proclaimed, she came down wonderfully. The word wonderfully means “difficult to understand.” It is difficult to understand how those who are supposed to minister the Words of God can read His Word and not understand God’s coming judgment.

We may ask, “Why is this going to happen to the church?” Jeremiah gave us the answer when he stated, “She has no Comforter.” The Comforter is the Holy Spirit. When the church shut the door to the Holy Spirit, it was then their decline came about.

This is when her enemies began to magnify themselves. When man thinks he can do things on his own, without God’s help, he will fall flat on his face. This is what has happened to the church. The apostle Timothy reveals what God’s elect should do. Timothy speaks of those churches who . . .

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” II Timothy 3:5 & 7

The church has its form religion, but they deny the power. The power in the church is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Comforter. The Holy Spirit is also the power of God. When the church shut out the power of God, it created a democracy instead of a theocracy. When this happened, God left by their open door, and let the enemy have free access.

The church is ever learning church doctrine, what the founders of the denominations have taught, and what wonderful works they did. But they fail to come to the knowledge of the truth. We need to heed the words of Timothy, “. . . from such turn away. . .”. There is only one answer to the churches’ problems – – – repent and turn back to God and His Word.

This nation and its people cannot escape the wrath of God. The church, with all its doctrines and creeds cannot escape the wrath of God. But those who do repent, and seek God with their whole hearts can be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger. This is the promise of the prophet Zephaniah:

“Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought His judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger.” Zephaniah 2:3

We can be assured the day of the Lord’s anger is about to come upon all those who have forsaken His will and His way. There is only one hope for this nation and the church. Repent and turn back to God with their whole hearts. Then maybe they will be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger.

Praise the Lord!
