The news that there was a beheading in Oklahoma City last week is shocking and surreal to me. I believe that this is just the beginning of things to come here on American soil. I’ve even had to ask myself over the last couple of days, am I really reading for what is coming? It’s one thing to see these types of things happening somewhere else and quote bible verses about it from the comfort of our homes. The fact that it has happened here in this country should be a wakeup call to all of us.
God’s divine protection over this country has allowed us to live in safety and security over the years, but we have allowed sin and abominable things to run rampant in our nation. As a result of this and turning our back as a nation against God, His hand of protection has been lifted.
The handwriting is on the wall. We are a nation under judgment. The comfortable way of life that we enjoy is about to be seriously disrupted and changed. It is imperative that we prepare for those changes. Now, I’m not talking about prepping, or buying up guns, ammo, gold and silver, even though those are all good common sense things to do. I’m talking about being spiritually ready for the storm that is about to be unleashed on this country. You can prep all you want in the physical sense but if you are not found in Jesus when the storm hits, you will perish. You may survive for a while physically, but where will you spend eternity? I know that most of us probably grew up thinking that stuff like this would never occur in our lifetime, or if it did, it would happen somewhere else. After all we are the United States of America, the most powerful nation on earth. Do the words, “I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow” sound familiar? This is taken from Revelation 18:7 (KJV), and that’s exactly the attitude that most in this country have today. I hate to be the one to break it to you, but American is Babylon (I will discuss this further in a future article).
Followers of Jesus, are you ready to suffer severe persecution? By persecution I just don’t mean being talked about or losing your job. I mean are you ready to be afflicted and possibly tortured because you refuse to deny your faith in Jesus? Are you ready to possibly watch loved ones murdered right in front of you because you refuse to go along with the world system? This is the reality that many of us will face probably sooner than we think. The only way to be ready is to be grounded in Him now. Seek Him and abide in Him each and every day.
I’d like to address those who are leaving or seriously considering leaving the country. If you are leaving the country to escape God’s judgment or preserve your comfortable lifestyle, just know that you cannot outrun or hide from Him. I’m sure that God has spoken to some to leave and has given specific directions on where they are to go, but if you have not heard Him telling you to leave, don’t go. You have to come to the realization that the safest place to be in the time of trouble is in the will of God. The will of God is not a physical location, it’s a spiritual one. He is not going to tell us all to leave. If we all leave, then who will remain to win the lost and do the work of the Lord? Remember that God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Also for those of you who have been promised a safe haven because you are high up in a government agency or you have connections, just know that you will not escape God’s judgment. You cannot outsmart or hide from Him. There’s no DUMB facility or survivalist encampment that is out of the reach of the Lord God Almighty. Your only hope is in Jesus.
Keep in mind that we that are followers of Jesus are called to be warriors. You’re in the battle whether you want to be or not. When things get tough, we don’t abandon our posts. We stand strong in the Lord. Even though spiritual darkness and calamity are coming……”but the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits” Daniel 11:32 (KJV). An exploit according to Merriam-Webster is a deed, act, especially a heroic or notable act. Even though the world is going to see great trouble, followers of Jesus are going to be empowered to do things through Him, that our small minds can’t even begin to comprehend. This is a dark and dangerous time that we live in but it’s also an exciting time to be alive, especially if you are redeemed by Jesus. So people of God, are you ready?
