Since the 1960’s an evil stain has spread across the land and it has only increased and magnified – the sin of abortion, the shedding of innocent blood. Now it is entrenched in the Democrat Party and they have made it part of their platform. And it has magnified to the selling of baby parts, even living baby parts. It has further morphed into transgenderism and the Democrats just passed a bill in the Congress allowing boys to compete in girls sports and use girls bathrooms and showers. They have ‘done much evil in the sight of the Lord’ just as King Manasseh did in the Old Testament. He also introduced evil practices to Judah, even sacrificing his children to the god Moleck.
“Moreover Manasseh shed very much innocent blood, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another, besides his sin by which he made Judah sin, in doing evil in the sight of the LORD.” – 2 Kings 21:16
“and also because of the innocent blood that he had shed; for he had filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, which the LORD would not pardon.” – 2 Kings 24:4
“Also he made his son pass through the fire, practiced soothsaying, used witchcraft, and consulted spiritists and mediums. He did much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke Him to anger.” – 2 Kings 21:6
This caused God to pronounce a judgment on Judah that they could not escape. In our country Planned Parenthood has killed 321,384 babies last year bringing total killed to Over 7.6 Million . What is even worse, these actions are blessed even by church pastors and those who claim to be Christians. I believe God’s judgment is already falling on the United States for these stands. A spirit of murder has been released on the country and it is highest in the cities where the most abortions take place. Also we have experienced a rise in violent storms, epoch fires, earthquakes and mass die-offs in the last decades. After every mass shooting, Democrats yell “gun control, gun control” but, what is needed is “sin control, sin control!”
Tomorrow, Sunday, is the Feast of Trumpets, or as Jews call it Rosh Hashanah (the Head of the Year). It is a feast celebrating the soon return of the Lord. The shofars are blown warning the people to get prepared. repent and get their lives right with God. It is one of the Feasts the Lord gave Moses –
“Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.” – Lev. 23:24
Jewish tradition associates this day with the creation of the world. There will be 6000 years of human history then comes the Day of the Lord, which will occur on the Feast of Trumpets. When the Shofars blow the righteous, both dead and alive, will be resurrected. According to the Talmud, the Messiah will return and establish His throne in Jerusalem and be King over all the world on this day. The righteous will be invited to the coronation of the King and be united with the Messiah as His Bride.
Jewish Rabbis called the Shofar that was blown on Shavuot (Pentecost), the first Shofar, when God gave Moses the Ten Commandments. Rabbis believe the last Shofar to be blown will be on the Feast of Trumpets (Taken from the book Fulfilling the Feasts of Israel by Velda Stearns). Paul writes a similar truth to the Corinthians –
“Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.” – 1 Cor. 15:51-53
In Jewish tradition, the Shofars begin to be blown 30 days before the Feast of Trumpets warning the people to get ready for the Lord’s coming and to repent. Has such a warning been going out for America? In 1973 David Wilkerson wrote the book The Vision in which he outlined 7 collapses that were going to happen in the world and in the United States, many of them have happened or are beginning to happen already.
- “Worldwide recession caused by economic confusion”
- “Nature having labor pains”
- “A flood of filth and a baptism of dirt in America”
- “Rebellion in the home”
- “A persecution madness against truly Spirit filled Christians who love Jesus Christ”
- There will be another wave of riots and there will be a fall in moral conduct.
- “Apostasy in the church”
I wrote about these in an article titled The Trumpet is Sounding. I pray you will re-read this article and prepare for the coming of the Lord, as the Feast of Trumpets warns.
Paul wrote about “the great falling away” of Christians and Jesus warned “will I find faith” when He returns? As the Chinese bulldoze Churches and California passes laws outlawing preachers from preaching what the Bible says about homosexuality and transgenderism, we see clearly the persecution David Wilkerson predicted – it is here! Jesus warned “narrow is the gate and few there be that find it” – (Matt. 7:13,14). The Shofar of the Feast of Trumpets is calling the few that find it to repentance and preparation for the Messiah’s coming.
