The history of ancient Israel is ripe with greed, power seekers and idol worship, along with gross immorality. The situation in those days was accurately described in Judges 21:25: “Every man did what was right in his own eyes.”
Due to their rebelliousness, God used the enemies of Israel to dispense His judgment and punishment for their sins. Think of this carefully as you check out the numerous such incidents outlined in the Bible where God turned apostates over to their enemies to carry out His judgment
For example see Judges 6:1 “And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years” (Midian was their enemy–the original Arabs). Then there was the Assyrian Captivity for the 10 tribes of Israel from which they never returned and in Jeremiah chapters 5 to 9 and onward is the story of how the Babylonians invaded and carried away captives for 70 years. Two Chronicles chapter 36 also gives the account of defeat and surrender to the Babylonians. And they brought this all on themselves due to their sins against God.
The Jews who experienced miraculous protection from God including the parting of The Red Sea to help them escape Pharaoh’s army, had incredibly become so involved in Idol Worship that before Moses came down from the mountain with the Stone Tablets, the people had already made a golden calf to worship and were partying while engaging in sexual sin.
They had become so paganistic that Ezekiel (37) referred to them as a valley of dry bones. And Israel has become the subject of attacks and attempted invasions ever since. And this is where America is today–exactly as it was in Israel with the very same results of judgment and punishment exacted by our enemies. Think 9/11 and ISIS.
Chapter 28 of Deuteronomy clearly warned us of the Muslim attacks on the World Trade Center Buildings in New York, yes OUR shores attacked by a foreign nation–for the first time in history.
And consider that the following prophecies were written 1,451 years BEFORE Christ came. Keep that in mind as you read these Scriptures. The early part of the chapter tells the blessings and protection of those faithful to God.
Verse 10 states: “And all the people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee.” The people who honored God lived victorious lives and kept their enemies at bay.
And that is how it was in those earlier years, but like the Israelite’s, America abandoned God as their sins multiplied to astonishing heights of depravity. Our very sins brought the fulfillment of vs. 32: “The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high, and thou shalt come down very low.”
Our sins brought Muslims to be in our midst (strangers within thee), and yes, they did “…get up above thee very high,” which they were able to do since they had taken flying lessons in Florida so they could fly planes above us for their attacks on the Twin Towers and The Pentagon. A third plane on the way to crash into the Capitol was thwarted by passengers who overpowered the Muslims and crashed the plane in a field before it got to D.C.
These events were taking form as pastors began compromising the Gospel that they were commissioned to preach, even distorting the Gospel in order to water down sin. After all, one should never be thought of as ‘narrow minded” doncha know.
We were no longer serving God joyfully, but rather just going through the motions of attending church with our minds captured by thoughts of the world.
And here is warning at the beginning at vs. 47: “Because thou servedst not the Lord thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; therefore shall thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things; and he (the enemy) shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck until he have destroyed thee.”
(49) “The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth (Arabic Nations), as swift as the eagle flieth; (The airplane had not been invented) a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand (Arabic is not a commonly known language).
(50) “A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor show favor to the young.” Muslims concentrate on “soft targets.” meaning retirement homes (old people) and schools filled with young people–Muslims have no regard for either. They are referred to as soft targets since they cannot fight back and cause injury or death to the attackers. These are the new killing fields invaded by cowardly murderers.
(52) And he (the enemy) shall besiege thee in all thy gates until thy high and fenced walls come down (Twin Towers) wherein thou trustedst (That is the banking center of America we trusted) throughout all thy land; and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all they land, which the Lord thy God hath given thee.” And yes, they have managed to infiltrate America and are in a position to pull this off.
A sinful nation is a weak nation. Strong leaders in the movies were all depicted as men of principle. John Wayne played a ship captain who had a photo of his wife framed in his quarters. The men asked him to join them in a night on the town, meaning carousing, drinking whisky and bedding down women. John Wayne politely declined. Even the Communist movie producers knew that a moral person was a strong person which built the character he played.
We are to avoid sin and even the appearance of evil at all costs. Don’t even THINK of being unfaithful to your spouse or flirting with anyone. If you are given too much change in a restaurant, gas station or anywhere else, return it immediately. If you are already in your car on the way home, turn around and go back to make that right. Of course you never take something that is not yours. Do not lie or mislead. Be truthful in all things and always keep your word. Otherwise you have weakened your position before God, and humanity itself while at the same time placing yourself in a weak position to face your enemies and God’s judgment.
The Bible is clear of the sins to avoid so as not to sabotage your earthly life or your future life with God. The driftings and vibrations of the world can ensnare you, weaken you and blocks your life from receiving the power of God. Don’t let it happen.
Many sexual sins are listed that can result in severe judgment. Indeed a strict law was once passed that if a man took sexual advantage of a woman, promising marriage, and then after getting what he sought dumped her and moved on, the woman could bring him into a court of law and he would be punished under a law called, “Breach of Promise.” Adultery was and is forbidden.
And a Christian should never use vulgar language, slang, or listen to dirty jokes or go to movies or watch TV shows that use such degrading words. We must restore the dignity of the human being created by God. We should exhibit decorum, responsibility and ethics.
Today there is rampant sex without commitment, growing sexual perversions displayed publicly that mock God, causing havoc and unbridled immorality that has grown to the extent that a grade school in New York just had a children’s talent show that included a grown “transgender” man who declared he was a woman who demanded to perform on the show put on by children for other children and parents.
Wearing a g-string with the apparel of a woman, this freak did a bump and grind strip type routine. He is the same kind of man who demands to be allowed to use little girl’s bathrooms (toilets), shower and dressing rooms. Grade schools today now have “transgender” story time, read by a transgender.
Swishy homosexuals are allowed to be teachers (and scout masters-the list goes on). Meanwhile, The United States of America has become weaker and weaker in both mind and body and are ripe to be invaded and conquered by 7th century savages who have already made their way into our once great and powerful country.
PREACHERS WHERE ARE YOU? Most of you are settled comfortably in a church where you preach a social Gospel of inclusion–yep all are welcome no matter how they live or what they do. Sin is of no importance in too many churches where these acts against God are not only tolerated, but winked at, so that EVERYONE feels welcome.
Pastor Steve Moore of 10 Mile Christian Church in Idaho this past Sunday preached about negative influences that affect our lives (if) we are weak enough to come under its power. His message came from Galatians and spotlighted the Apostle Paul who preached a strong message against sin to the churches there that had drifted away from the true Gospel. Paul’s preaching was to the point and truthful without compromise. Paul did not underplay the consequences of sin.
The biggest mistake of preachers is to try to “broaden” their viewpoint. Being thought of as ‘broadminded’ is considered favorable to many misinformed people. I’ve seen some pastors so “broadminded” that it is a wonder that their brains didn’t spill out.
In the book, “Learning from the Apostles” published by Gospel Publishing House in 1971, one of the earlier books I read when called to the ministry–Author Amos D. Millard wrote: “Let us make no mistake about it. The sharpest attack of Satan against Pentecostal people will be to get them to broaden their viewpoints and become more tolerant of worldly currents of thinking and practice. We used to hear from our pulpits warnings against compromise. Perhaps it is time to restore it to our vocabularies.” A big AMEN to that!
The greatest problem with our churches are the career pastors–meaning those who were not called to the ministry (which should be a prerequisite), but have CHOSEN the ministry as a career. This explains the backstabbing, competitive spirit, trying to outdo the pastor down the road, or seeking the most attention. If they had been called, they would support the pastor down the road and stop trying to make a monument of themselves.
Career pastors: Run–don’t walk–flee the ministry now before you build up even more wrath to come upon you. Do not trifle with Holy things. You do not belong there. GET OUT BEFORE YOU CAUSE EVEN MORE HARM! Called pastors–MAN YOUR PULPITS! Absorb the spirit of The Apostle Paul and preach forcibly, truthfully, and lovingly.
God has lifted His Hand from America due to our incredible sins including the cruel murders of millions of babies in the womb simply because they were inconvenient. If sex were used in the manner God intended, there would be no unwanted babies that would be dismembered in the womb and pulled out piece by piece. It has been documented that, THEY FEEL THE HORRIFIC PAIN as this is being done to them. All because immoral people pushed their fingers into the eye of God to simply demand to satisfy their uncontrolled sexual impulses without restraint.
Pastors: let’s get back to preaching the rewards of living a Holy life as God intended so he can bless us, prosper us, strengthen us and protect us. Otherwise we are in the direct path of destruction, with the career preachers leading us straight to the pits of hell.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERY PREACHER YOU KNOW OF.
Our hour of destruction by our enemies draws closer. God once, in anger, destroyed the entire earth by a flood, with the exception of one righteous family, due to the mass sins of that day. Today’s sins are far worse than in Noah’s time as will be the punishment. We are next.
God’s Hand has already been lifted from America. This is why even the weather patterns have seemingly gone crazy. There are some planetary irregularities for the first time. Our enemies have managed to attack us on our own soil, with more to come, while sexual perverts in wild makeup and costumes, some with no clothes at all, march boldly down our streets to celebrate their degeneracy in defiance of God.
Restoring our country is in the hands of the preachers, pastors, ministers and chaplains to compel people to live a life of holiness, restore morality, and to know right from wrong, even though our colleges and universities from the beginning of their semesters teach: “There are no absolutes, no rights or wrongs. What is right for one person may not be right for somebody else. What is wrong for one person may not be wrong for anyone else.”The first day I went to college, when I was 62, that was the first lesson I heard.
This is absurd thinking that Satan and his representatives’ want instilled in everyone, which makes his job easier. Again, PREACHERS-MAN YOUR PULPITS! It is all up to you.
So what about the question in the headline? After reading the above Scriptures on the subject, Was ISIS sent by God to exact His judgment of wrath upon America? What do YOU think?
Special thanks to my anonymous retired minister friend who provided the Scripture references regarding God using Israel’s enemies to execute His judgement upon them.
