In my last post, I wrote about the uncomfortable silence that is prevalent in the American Church. Since most people should know that your silence on a matter is you unspoken agreement to a situation. I was perusing Facebook and You Tube just to see what are other people are posting, I came across some very disturbing video. These were men preaching the Gospel and being arrested for it. I touched upon this in my post Sharia Law in America – Is it Possible: YES! It has now moved from being an isolated case in Dearborn, MI., to Athens, GA., to now Hemet, CA. where a street preacher was arrested for preaching the Gospel at a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) location. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) arrested the preacher, did not read him his Miranda rights (not on camera, at least), placed him in the back of his police cruiser and then threatened his friends with arrest if they did not leave the area. Below is video of the incident.
Janet Porter (Folger) founder of the group Faith 2 Action, wrote a book in 2005 called, “The Criminalization of Christianity“. She wrote that this day would happen. She was laughed at until scorn – as am I. Soon no one will be laughing. When MTV aired a “Police State” video, it should have been heeded as a blaring alarm that this is the direction that we as nation are headed. Here is the video they aired:
The signs are around us. The catching away is imminent. However, if by Divine Providence that the rapture does not happen soon, some of the things we as American will face are:
- The suspension of the Constitution.
- The implementation of martial law.
- The making of Christianity illegal (except in State-Sponsored churches).
- The systematic persecution and killing of Christians whose sole crime is that they preach/live the Gospel (outside of the State sponsored arena).
- The forced allegiance to the State controlled government and execution for those who don’t.
This is not a game. This is not a “What if” scenario. These are not even possibilities. These are probabilities. The only possibility is will the Church in America be here when – not if it happens. We need to repent as never before – starting with Church Leadership as never before. We need to take back control of our rights and freedoms as never before, so that the Gospel can be preached like never before. If there is a time for the Church in America to stand up and speak up, this is it. The government, led by the hordes of Hell are coming for us. Your response today will seal your fate for you and your children tomorrow.
If “Silence is Golden” then by all accounts the Church in America should be richer than Solomon.
