The End is Near…Are You Ready

While people are busy scurrying on the street or online looking for that perfect post “Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal” I ask myself, “How ready is the typical American (let alone the typical American Christian) for an economic collapse?  The answer is: Not at all.  We as a nation have not learned ANYTHING from the collapse in 2008.

In fact, we plunged ourselves deeper into debt. From a 7 year car loans that when you drive the car off the lot you are already “underwater” in your loan terms. To student loan debt collectively equating to north of 1 trillion dollars – with no job prospects in sight since the true unemployment rate is north of 20%. It seems to me that America as a whole has embraced the adage: “Eat, Drink, and Be Merry, for tomorrow we die.”  Little that she knows that she has been bingeing in the 4th watch of the night – just before the new day dawns.  When this day finally does “dawn”, so will the revelation that the party’s over and that the “piper” will have his hand outstretched for “payment.” It will be Day One of economic slavery in America.  A day where some have laughed at people to scorn in mockery to those whose saw the signs and have prepared accordingly.  In other words, the “Zombie Apocalypse” has arrived.

Please keep in mind the term “Apocalypse” simply means revelation.  This will be a multi-faceted revelation.  An economic revelation.  A political revelation.  A moral revelation.  A spiritual revelation.   We as a nation can not be doing wrong things and not expect a backlash from our activities.  Case in point:

  • You can’t expect Social Security to continue when you kill 70 million future payers over a 40 year period.
  • You can’t expect a nation to be politically free when its own government sacrifice 3000 of their countrymen to restrict the movement of 300 million people.
  • You can’t expect a culture to survive when lines between right and wrong – from math and language to identification of what is male and female in a society are blurred.
  • You can’t expect the spirit of a nation to live when those who have been commissioned with the task of preserving it (the American Church) have largely neglected their duty through apathy or silence in the pulpit.

We are racing toward the end of an era.  An era that looks more like end of Rome than that of a God-fearing country. There is not much time left.  You need to get your “houses” in order:  Economic, political, moral, but above all your spiritual house needs to be in order.  Whether you believe in eternity or not, it is there – and it is waiting for you.  With each passing day you are one day closer to meeting with eternity and most importantly, the Creator of it.

 

Are YOU Ready?

Pharoahs Are Not Just Egyptian

As you know – amid allegations of voter fraud, Barack Obama holds the office of President of the United States for a 2nd term.  While people rejoiced in electing a person of color for the second time, it is apparent we in America did not learn the lesson the first time around .  In essence, we will have to face our own “Mt. Sinai” and go around this mountain one more time.  What did we not learn?  Several things:

The first is that character is more important than color.  We as a nation thought that the breaking of the “skin barrier” in the White House will usher in racial equality, when racism at its core is a heart issue.  The second is that no economy has ever survived on service sector jobs making up the bulk of the nation’s workload. Why? The service sector by its design is a supportive role, not a leading one.  Services don’t make widgets, they only enhance them.  To make a widget takes manufacturing.  The bulk of manufacturing is done outside of this country for one reason:  Labor costs.

Third is worldview.  By worldview I mean who will we choose to rule over us?  For those we choose, it will be out of their worldview that the laws that we will be subjected to are made.  So if you choose a candidate that is Anti-God, Ant-Bible,  and Anti-Israel, don’t expect that person or body of people to be favorable to those areas.  Remember God did not choose them: YOU DID!  Fourth is the harvest.  What do I mean?  It is in these three areas:  Lack of character judgment, lack of economic stewardship and a lack of political vigilance that we in the Church in America are facing to reap a “Perfect Storm” of a harvest:  in the name of “Pharoah” Barack Obama.  Why would I call Obama “Pharoah”?  Let’s look in I Samuel 8:11 to see what happened when Israel rejected God as a leader.

  ” And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.”

FEMA has just graduated their first class of Rapid Response unit personnel.  These consists of men and women ususally between the ages of 20-30 that have to do a 2-year term being available for any distress in the nation – at the discretion of the Office of the President.  In exchange, they receive 2 years of college paid for by the taxpayer.  Remember, these are your children I am talking about.  Read the I Samuel 8-12-17 to see what else did Saul as king do to the children of Israel.  Pay very close attention to verse 18:

” And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the Lord will not hear you in that day.”

What shall we do in this day you may ask?  REPENT!!  Repent that we did not listen!  Repent that we did not learn!   Repent that we gave ourselves over to false teachers becuase we had “itching ears”!  For if the Lord does not hear our cry and we will have to go through this process of chastening and persecution, let our lesson be learned hastily and that obedience to His Voice and His Word is more important than “scoring” political or social points with humanity.  Judgment is not coming, it is here.  On January 1, 2013, judgment will begin its “exercise routine” in the form of our taxes going through the roof – and that’s only the beginning.

Unless Divine Intervention happens, strap yourselves in folks, we just passed the crest of the hill and the steering and suspension just went out.  It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Chick-Fil-A: Private Opinion Exposing a Public War

On August 1 the country “celebrated” Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day by going to their local Chick-Fil-A restaurant and purchasing products sold there.  Why? Becuase COO Dan Cathy expressed a personal opinion that he believes in traditional marriage. While I appreciate Mr. Cathy’s stance on the topic, it is the response that his opinion has received that is cause for concern.  What would motivate tens of thousands of people across the nation to buy a Chick-Fil-A product, yet would vote for unrighteousness in our government at all levels 2-4 years earlier?  The answer I believe is as clear as the noon day sun:  Silent Pastors.

The churches in America – the “Black”ones especially,  have become unnerving silent in this last presidential election cycle until Mr. Obama came out in favor of Same-Sex Marriage.  This admission by Mr. Obama has forced the Church in America to finally take a stand on the issue of what God constitutes as holy.  In other words, the darkness of this world has painted the Church in America in such a small corner, it was forced to rise up and by their action get a little “dirty”.  Their action told the congregation that attends them that they are not  completely corrupt, but their existence does has some redeeming value.

The “congregation” responded on August 1st that we do not need professional clergy to speak for us, but that we can speak for ourselves and “vote” for righteousness with our dollars.  To which I would hope that their vote that was cast at Chick-Fil-A will translate into righteousness on Election Day.
