“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are 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. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of travail.” Matthew 24:6-8
Oh for the days of before where there wasn’t so many supposed threats against our nation, both from inside and outside influences! This country has suffered from threats before.
We had the threat of a nuclear war during the Cold War with the Soviet Union. There the government increased the paranoia of the situation by telling people to duct tapes windows and school children to go underneath school desks. The horror was fully felt as Barry Goldwater apparently lost the presidential election after the influence of a commercial of a girl picking flower pedals as a mushroom cloud appears. We also had the oil crisis that caused a lot of strife, panic and problems for Americans from coast to coast.
There was a long period of threats from the outside world having disappeared during the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s. During that time the perceived threat rhetoric was changed from that of an outside threat to an interior threat. The nation took the bait hook, line and sinker, while those who were in the know began ringing the alarm bells. The threat had become an interior one.
Americans allowed wars to continue on around the globe, without any concern of the validity of such actions. With no concern to the millions displaced and starving citizens of foreign countries, nor the literally over a million men, women and children killed for presumed and purposely falsified information, that gained the supposed support of our country’s citizens, in all the name of fighting terror. Our government had declared that the threats to our national security was an interior one, thus allowing for both the bombarding of propaganda towards Americans, as well as supposed justification to increase our global military dominance around the globe.
Growing poppy fields with no end in sight in Afghanistan, where the current Trump administration has yet increased troops, the opium crisis is now apparent. Poppies are used to make opiates, including heroin. With bases established in the Middle East the Obama administration managed to blow out the Arab governments, creating the Arab Spring, of which these countries are even more torn than before, with wars and instability. This also creates great discord with Russia, who is fighting to retain their Mediterranean port in Syria. In America the government declared war on freedom, under the guise of terrorism.
Starting with the Oklahoma City bombing, one that has evidence of collusion by the government, the battle began. Yet Americans still remain resilient towards taking away freedoms from the general public, yet all of this changed on 9/11.
In an instance a tragedy had happened. While the World Trade Center had an attack prior, via a bomb in the parking garage, Americans watched over and over again video and news commentary regarding the terrorist attack. Pictures of people jumping from the towers, to their death, the building free falling, as if they were imploded. Horrific images, deeply embedded, the images burned into the memory of those Americans who revisited over and over again the horror of what appeared to be a legitimate terrorist attack. Then there were those who started asking questions.
Professors, engineers and others wondered how the World Trade Center towers managed to freefall into their own footprint. People began to ask questions why so quickly all of the leftover steel from that tragic day was suddenly shipped off to China. With traces of thermite in scraps of steel, those who were in leadership positions and question the official story began to drop like flies, dying one after another. While the lines were full of Americans waiting to enlist in the Army, in order to fight back those who had done such a thing, those in power had done some curious things.
George W. Bush’s own father had called for a new world order EXACTLY ten years before 9/11, when he was President. When President Bush was approached, while reading a book, he was reading a book about a goat, holding it upside down. The goat is symbolic to satanism. Larry Silverstein had purchased extra insurance prior to the attacks on 9/11. Fighter jets had been ordered to stand down on that fateful day, as well at the same time there were drills going on for such an event. Some had foretold that the rumor was that an attack was going to happen. The attack happened, but without writing a book of details, many of which are written, the evidence points correctly to 9/11 being an inside job. Who exactly pulled it off, remains a mystery.
With this the war on the people had begun. The Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, the John Werner Defense Authorization Act and many others, including executive orders by President Bush, stripped Americans of many of their rights, as well as unleashed the NSA (National Security Administration), the DOJ (Department of Justice) and created the ridiculous DHS (Department of Homeland Security). The FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) began compiling watchlists for terrorist, including the KST (Known or Suspected Terrorist). That list blew up to well over a million citizens.
People began to become complacent. Certainly there was a backlash and the Tea Party movement caught on. Some enough there were enough Tea Party candidates who got elected, though they turned on their voters and refused to overturn the notorious Patriot Act. With some relief put in place, after the revelations of Edward Snowden, the Patriot Act has not only regained it’s full power, but expanded it even further.
During that time a fair portion of Americans started to prepare for the inevitable to no end. Now the threat perceived by that portion of Americans was that they were the enemy and they were being targeted. Indeed my family can attest to what it is like to have been and be targeted by the Federal Government. You can read our story for free by clicking on the link on All Will Stand (allwillstand.org) or going directly to the Of Missing Persons website (ofmissingpersons.com). After time the amount of those who complain about such draconian measures begins to dwindle. Most people give up and certainly many more accept having to have their naked body scanned and treated as enemy combatants while traveling across the country.
They justify the necessity of dealing with such totalitarian measures by an ‘ends justify the means’ mentality. Some suggest that if you have nothing to hide, then why worry about it? Well, because our government can not be trusted, what government can? Do not the American people now see how big of a mess Washington D.C. is and the amount of deep rooted corruption found throughout, in both political parties? This same nonsense argument is now being used to try and take away guns from citizens who quite simply have a 2nd Amendment right, irregardless of the opinion of those who oppose. Just as there is supposed free speech, via the 1st Amendment, I assure you that you run a risk by having a genuine opinion. Rights are rights, simple as that.
Now with the precedent already set for a locked-down society, one that can declare a citizen an enemy combatant, removing them of their citizenship and placing them in a prison, a society that promotes torture, under the guise of ‘enhanced-interrogation’, here we are well into the 21st century. Don’t expect these measures to lessen anytime soon, largely they simply get worse with time. So we have a full blown war on the American people, those whom the government declares to be enemies of the state, under the guise of the war on terrorism, of whom those unfortunate ones who end up on these ridiculous and nonsense lists have much company, with well over a million other American citizens. Those who are your neighbors, your co-workers, your friends and even family, our government has declared them to be potential terrorist, yet these same intelligence agencies can’t stop a school shooting, even when the man openly declared, using his own name, that he is going to become a professional school shooter! That is not protected free speech.
Now threats are appearing on the outside. We have a government who has the ability to lock down this country, arrest and imprison those who they declare are enemies of the state, should they either choose to do so or if the conditions in this country supposedly merit such a measure. Over the past several years numerous foreign enemies have been appearing and our drastic policies towards these countries certainly are not of the isolationist sort.
China has been building their military nonstop, include new weaponry, tanks, fighter jets, etc. They are actively trying and so far successfully doing so, taking over the South China Sea, as well as placing military bases in different countries around the world. Together with Russia, their open ally, who also has been making alliances around the world. Of course the North Korea ordeal, that has been discussed before, has not went away, with recent threats of wars having been made. All around the world, America has become a joke, a byword, are we becoming a Banana Republic? How many of our supposed allies wouldn’t care if North Korea were able to knock out our power grid with a super EMP weapon or hit some city with a nuclear warhead? Now Vladimir Putin, Russia’s President, has just made threats that far outweigh those of our other enemies.
Showing off an array of new weaponry that could easily exterminate those who reside from sea to shining sea of this country, he mocks our forces that he claims are preparing for war against Russia via NATO. These new weapons are indeed powerful and likely could circumvent our missile defense system, of which there is no guarantee that even North Korea couldn’t do the same. So here we are, as Americans living in the year 2018.
We watched as our country suffered the highest cost of natural disasters ever in our history last year. As our country continues down the moral decline, rebelling against our Creator, one can only ponder what other disasters, even a major disaster such as our power grid knocked out or nuclear war. While our American pride might be strong enough to go against other nations, certainly our pride is nothing compared to the Almighty God, who sees what we are doing.
“And the pride of man shall be bowed down; and the haughtiness of men shall be brought low; and Jehovah alone shall be exalted in that day.” Isaiah 2:17
What type of stability is there in this world nowadays. Is now a good time to purchase a new home? Is now a good time to plan for expanding your family? Is now a good time to start a business endeavor? Is now a good time to move to a major city? Or rather is it a good time to ensure that one certainly has repented and by faith believe into Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior? Indeed! We have threats that are both from the inside of our own government and also from the outside, often instigated by our own government.
There are wars and rumors of wars. The stock market bounces back and forth in what would only be another threat against the sensibility of money, as well as the stability of our nation. Of course we can not forget about the Federal Reserve, which is neither federal, nor a reserve, and has historical been proven to be financers of revolutions, wars, depressions and propping up financial markets, manipulating currencies throughout the nations.
Who can say what the future holds? Well God has told us the future, He has declared what happens to mankind. He tells us that those whose names are not written in the Book of Life will be cast for eternity in the Lake of Fire. Clearly these things are declared, clearly they are not threats, they are the reality, one which every man, woman and child on the face of the earth needs to know. The Gospel needs to be preached to all of them, whether or not they choose to accept this absolute Truth.
“Remember this, and be a man; refresh the memory of your heart, you who rebel. Remember the former things from a long time ago; for I am the Mighty God, and there is no other; I am God, and no one else is like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from antiquity things which are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure; calling a bird of prey from the east, the man who executes my counsel from a distant land. Indeed, I have spoken it; I will also bring it to pass. I have formed it; I will also do it.” Isaiah 46:8-11
“And I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heavens fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God. And books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, out of the things which were written in the books. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one, according to their works. And Death and Hades were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire.” Revelation 20:11-15
“Go therefore and instruct all the nations, immersing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things whatever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.” Matthew 28:19-20
While my hope is that none of these threats occur, while I would hope that the Lord would take us to be with Him prior to any potential threats actually occurring. We do know for certain from the Bible that indeed there will come a time where men will hide. There will come a time when most of humanity will be killed, their bodies littering the landscape. The Holy Scriptures teaches what happens to a world that has chosen to be disobedient to their Creator and the just judgment of the Most High, who though with a heavy hand chastises the nations, He also has mercy towards those who would still, even then, repent and by faith believe into His Son Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (Rev. 7:9-17). While they will give their lives during that time for doing so, we can be certain that those of us who are true Christians, who have truly repented and believed the Gospel will not be here during that time, we will have been Raptured out of this world beforehand.
“For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with a shouted command, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together at the same time with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” 1st Thessalonians 4:16-17
“For behold the days are coming in which they will say, Blessed are the barren, wombs that never bore, and breasts which never nursed. Then they will begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us! and to the hills, Cover us!” Luke 23:29-30
“A roaring noise shall come to the ends of the earth; for Jehovah has a controversy with the nations; He will enter into judgment with all flesh. He will give those who are wicked to the sword, says Jehovah. Thus says Jehovah of Hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great tempest shall be roused up from the recesses of the earth. And in that day the slain of Jehovah shall be from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth. They shall not be mourned, nor gathered, nor buried. They shall be as dung on the ground.” Jeremiah 25:31-33
“And they shall go into the caves of the rocks, and into the holes of the earth, for the terror of Jehovah, and from the glory of His majesty; when He rises up to make the earth tremble.” Isaiah 2:19
“For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we watch or sleep, we should live together with Him.” 1st Corinthians 5:9-10
What will you do when the future happens, when the “time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7) begins, better known as the Great Tribulation? Then, when horror upon horror is inflicted upon the earth in its due time, where will you turn to o’ man? To whom will you go or to what? Will you look towards earthly leaders? Will you join in with those who still continue to rebel and refuse to repent towards their Creator? Will you accept the mark of the beast (Rev. 14:9-10), dooming yourself for all eternity? Will you look towards gods made with man’s hands, gods of wood, gold and silver? Will you look towards the stars that were Created by the one and only God, as your refuge? Will you believe more falsehoods? Ultimately irregardless of what you choose, there is really only one choice. Either you repent and by faith believe into Jesus as your Savior or else you will with certainty stand before your Creator who will recompense you for all of your sins, indeed as your name is not written in the Book of Life, you will give Him who all men are accountable before, no choice but by His own holiness to cast you forever into the Lake of Fire where Satan and the False Prophet will reside.
“The great day of Jehovah is near; it is near and hastens greatly, the sound of the day of Jehovah. The mighty man shall cry out bitterly there. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of desolation and ruin, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness, a day of the shofar and alarm against the fortified cities, and against the high towers. And I will bring distress upon men, and they shall walk like the blind, because they have sinned against Jehovah. And their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh like dung. Their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of Jehovah. But all the earth shall be devoured by the fire of His jealousy. For He shall make a complete and speedy end of all those who live in the land.” Zephaniah 1:14-18
“And I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the eternal gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth; to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people; saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; also, do homage to Him who made the heavens and the earth, the sea and springs of water. And another angel followed, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her sexual perversion.” Revelation 14:6-8
“But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not do homage to demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which are not able to see nor hear nor walk. And they did not repent of their murders nor their sorceries nor their sexual perversions nor their thefts.” Revelation 9:20-21
“In that day a man shall throw his idols of silver and gold, which they made each man to bow down to, to the moles and to the bats; to go into the crevices of the rocks, and into the clefts of the cliffs, from the terror of Jehovah, and from the glory of His majesty; when He rises up to make the earth tremble. Leave off from such a man, whose breath is in his nostril; for how is he to be accounted?” Isaiah 2:20-22
“And the devil, who led them astray, was cast into the Lake of Fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” Revelation 20:10
This is no threat, this is the truth.
