The Apostle Paul wrote –
But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation. – 1 Thessalonians 5:1-8
This age is coming to an end at some point. Those who think God is just a myth live as if things will continue on forever. They may believe America will have economic problems or other minor disruptions such as political change, but, generally they espouse the idea that we will continue well into the future. “Peace and safety” is their motto. Paul writes that we know the Lord’s coming will be unexpected to them, like a “thief in the night”. Those kinds of people have always been around. But what is really disturbing is when those who are supposed to be “children of light” are also living as if everything is “peace and safety”.
The prophet Ezekiel warns “if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.” – Ezekiel 33:6
Since the early 60’s America has left her Scriptural roots in Christianity even though any who care to search will see that our Founders were Christian and they wanted every American to have a Holy Bible. The U.S. Congress even commissioned a Bible to be printed for that very purpose. Now, thanks to a godless education system and a Church that is asleep, we have several generations of citizens who don’t know our spiritual roots as a nation. If you don’t know your rights, they can be taken away without you even knowing it. That is why the false principle of ‘separation of church and state’ could ever take hold in America.
The ‘beacon of light’ that God set in this country, the Church, was largely asleep during this time. They were not being ‘salt and light’ and within a few generations were removed from being the godly influence they should have been. When God sent prophets to them, they denied them, relegating the precious gifts of the Holy Spirit to the past only. I personally can remember prophets warning with dreams and visions of an invasion of our country from China. For the most part, the Church looked on them as fanatics. But now, China is our main competition and is openly threatening us financially and militarily.
The Chinese Defense Minister was recently quoted:
“We must prepare ourselves for two scenarios. If our biological weapons succeed in the surprise attack [on the US], the Chinese people will be able to keep their losses at a minimum in the fight against the U.S. If, however, the attack fails and triggers a nuclear retaliation from the U.S., China would perhaps suffer a catastrophe in which more than half of its population would perish.
“That is why we need to be ready with air defense systems for our big and medium-sized cities. Whatever the case may be, we can only move forward fearlessly for the sake of our Party and state and our nation’s future, regardless of the hardships we have to face and the sacrifices we have to make. The population, even if more than half dies, can be reproduced. But if the Party falls, everything is gone, and forever gone!
“It is indeed brutal to kill one or two hundred million Americans. But that is the only path that will secure a Chinese century, a century in which the CCP leads the world. We, as revolutionary humanitarians, do not want deaths. But if history confronts us with a choice between deaths of Chinese and those of Americans, we’d have to pick the latter, as, for us, it is more important to safeguard the lives of the Chinese people and the life of our Party.
“That is because, after all, we are Chinese and members of the CCP. Since the day we joined the CCP, the Party’s life has always been above all else!”
This is just one threat facing us because of our rejection of God. Islam is another with aspirations of ruling the world and if anyone bothers to listen to what they are regularly saying, The United States and Israel are highest on their hit list. It should be mentioned that the Islamic nation burning this American flag has nuclear weapons! It is Pakistan.
But these threats are nothing compared to the one we are facing because of our stand over Israel. In that one we are standing against God Himself! God warned in Joel;
I will gather all nations, and bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat (judgment); and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land. – Joel 3:2
I would rather face China, Russia and the Islamic nations all together than God!
Last week Israeli Arab lawmaker Ahmed Tibi said, “The admission of Palestine as a member of the United Nations has become an inevitable reality in September next.” The UN declared on last Tuesday that the Palestinian Authority is capable and ready to function as an independent state, and is only being held back by the “Israeli occupation.” The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) agreed with the UN. “US President Barack Obama wants a Palestinian state and although the US is not interested in a unilateral declaration, it would be hard for it to stand alone in the General Assembly and vote against it”, an Israeli official recently stated. Sides in the contest are being chosen and there are only two sides, the world and God’s! However, God is not surprised –
For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more. – Psalm 83:3, 4
The real issue is not Israel against the Palestinians. The real issue is Satan and his kingdom against God and His kingdom.
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.” – Psalm 2:2, 3
If you are a real Christian, a real follower of Jesus Christ, then take to heart what Paul wrote, “let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.” Let us watch (pray) and be sober (alert), for unless we can bring about a change in this nation’s course, we are headed for disaster.
Here ends chapter 8.
For a few years this scenario began to change as we elected President Trump and he began to take a strong pro-Israel stand. But, the devil couldn’t have that and so he orchestrated a fraudulent election to unseat Trump. And during this time where was the Church? It was asleep and largely unaware of the enemies tactics. Some of it was actually against Trump! They were completely deceived!
Now, the Chinese Communist Party’s hidden war against the USA is being revealed but, it may be too late as it’s tentacles have spread throughout our society: from government to financial organizations to educational systems to our news media to our health industry. Only a vast awakening of the Church has the power to stop it.
Oh Church hear the cry of the end times prophet Malachi as he sees the end time attack by the spirit of the Antichrist –
“For behold, the day is coming, Burning like an oven, And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” Says the LORD of hosts, “That will leave them neither root nor branch. But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings; And you shall go out And grow fat like stall-fed calves. You shall trample the wicked, For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet On the day that I do this,” Says the LORD of hosts.” – Mal 4:1-3
The prophets are all speaking and the LORD is releasing His angels to do their work on behalf of the faithful. All wickedness is going to be revealed and judged. And the righteous, those who fear the Lord, are going to rise up and march to the drum-beat of the Holy Spirit. He is calling now – WAKE UP OH CHURCH! Do you hear the call?
