America's Burial

Back in February I wrote about "America's Funeral" after I had been listening to the song "America The Beautiful" played by the Andre Rieu Orchestra. Last night I was listening to the same album and again listened to "America The Beautiful". This time I was struck by it as a slow, step-by-step tempo of the burial of this nation.

When we hear that the Lord's wrath will descend upon us and we will be destroyed "in one day", we think in human terms, while God thinks in His terms. "My ways are not your ways, and My thoughts are not your thoughts." "A day to the Lord is like a thousand years". In this case "in one day" means step-by-step over several years of our time, catastrophe after catastrophe after catastophe after catastrophe. The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was the beginning, the floods in Nashville were another step, the tornadoes in Oklahoma another step. These steps of destruction will continue one after another after another after another. It is my opinion that they will continue unabated, without letup.

When will it all end? -  "Isa 16:13 - This is the word the LORD has already spoken concerning the USA. 14 But now the LORD says: "Within three years, as a servant bound by contract would count them, Moab's splendor and all her many people will be despised, and her survivors will be very few and feeble".   Does that mean that these catastrophes will stop then? No, it simply means that within three years this nation will cease to exist as we now know it. The nation's splendor will be gone and there will be few survivors.

That is how close we are to the end, people. The next few years are going to be extremely hard for everyone, especially for those who do not know the Lord. But they will also be extremely difficult for those who think they are Christians, but who daily chase after the things of this world. Again, I call upon the Christians in this nation to repent and turn your eyes to the Lord, for He is the only one who you will be able to trust in the coming days. He is the only one who will able to lead you in the coming days. Turn off the idiot boxes and turn to the Lord in prayer, fasting and reading the Bible - that is the only way you will have the strength to endure to the end. Only he that endures to the end will be saved.
