Satan faces many barriers in his attempt to bring his counterfeit messiah into this world. The biggest of those barriers is the righteousness of the followers of Christ, but that barrier is collapsing with the massive corruption flooding into our churches, neutralizing the salt that was supposed to preserve the community and nation. And, I could go down the list of other barriers, but there is one that I am intimately familiar with – especially over the past few days:
Yes, I now that you view computers as the pathway that the Antichrist will use to rule the world. But, there are LOTS of barriers along that path, and I had to deal with a couple of them this week.
The idea that my beautiful country, America, will be attacked and destroyed fills me with horror. It is such a wonderful place, with so many wonderful people. The idea that her cities would become wastelands and her people dead or dispossessed…
…well, it’s almost beyond comprehension.
Unfortunately, the clues left behind by John the Revelator show us that this is an inevitability. And Ezekiel chimes in with a coming of Gog and Magog that leaves no room for our America. Furthermore, a close look at America’s goading of Russia leads us to a conviction that we truly are on course for the fulfillment of a terrifying prophecy.
It grieves me to see what is happening to America, and what has already happened. And, I truly wish that there was something that we could do to help keep our beloved country from going over the cliff. The problem is that greater men than I have thought to change our course, yet we are still headed into the abyss.
So, should we continue to hammer on the brakes?
Or, should we jump clear of the train?
Only the Lord can guide you to the right answer to this question. Just do not kid yourself over America’s final destination. The United States is destined for a bitter end.
Growing up, I’d always assumed that the heads of The Beast were modern-day individuals. And, like so many, every time that I would read The seven heads are seven mountains (Revelation 17:9), I’d just mentally wave it away and concentrate on what was easier to get my head around – verse 10.
Ignoring the difficult – and concentrating on the ‘easy’ – is normal. But, in this dangerous age, it’s a deadly habit. It is hard to understand what is coming, but that shouldn’t keep us from focusing on it.
Because the seventh head gets a deadly wound, and you do NOT want to be nearby when that wound happens.
Whatever the cause of my slow progress in seeing what should be obvious, the point should be clear to everyone reading these articles, that the United States is the penultimate empire of world history. No empire has been greater, and it is the last one before The Beast finally rises.
The idea that a nuclear attack could destroy America is not new. We’ve all feared such an event, and our parents even gave thought to preparing for it. And, three years ago, the possibility of an EMP attack was what inspired the creation of this website.
What sends chills up my spine is the idea that America is the seventh head that will become the eighth – and The Beast. What a completely shocking idea.
I really would love to find another candidate for such a terrible event, and many of you have offered different ideas on the subject. But, no other possibility really exists that fits the parameters laid out by the Book of Revelation.
But, does a family history of patriotic service outweigh the truth?
I wish that it did.
America is no longer the country that my family fought for, 228 years ago. In fact, it now represents all the evils that we stood against in that first war. And, two centuries is not very long, to have fallen so far.
