There has always been wickedness in the world, but without question it is increasing rapidly in these last days prior to our Lord’s return.
In this country, decent people are no longer safe at their work place, in their church gatherings, at a restaurant, in the schools, walking down a street, and even in their own home. Every crime imaginable is being committed by lawless heathen, largely due to our spineless justice system administered by Godless politicians.
The entertainment industry is the mother of filth that is openly and brazenly regurgitated upon mindless citizens. No sexual act or vile word has been omitted from their trash they deliver to their zombie groupies.
Finding a true statesman among the political world is as likely as finding gold in your backyard. Nearly everything coming from these scoundrels is fool’s gold.
The religious arena has become so corrupt, only a few good men remain who actually serve the one and only true God. Elijah could tell us much about these miscreants.
There is no area I can mention that is not corrupted by evil, the type of evil that looks at God and says, “So what!” The sports world, the business world, even many homes across this land can be added to the list and are serving the god Baal.
The general attitude among most people in our land can be summed up with the following Scripture passages.
“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” (Psalms 14:1)
“The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.” (Psalms 36:1)
Whenever the Rapture of the Church does take place, most people will be left behind. Most of those dying now, prior to the Rapture, are not arriving in Heaven after their last breath, but in hell.
God wants all to come to Him in repentance and be saved, but He will not force Himself upon anyone. The following verse is very clear that God will not make an exception. There is no respect of persons with Him, and He cannot be bribed.
“Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.” (2 Chronicles 19:7)
Most people today are fools, because they think there is no God. They have become totally corrupt; whether by violence, lewdness, false piety, etc. The wise man is different. He fears evil and departs from it, but not the fool.
“A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.” (Proverbs 14:16)
We have been blessed in this country like no other nation in history. No nation has ever had the riches of spiritual and material blessings that have been heaped upon us. It is no mystery why everyone wants to live in this country. Unfortunately, we are now so corrupt; there is nothing remaining but certain judgment. God is patient, and He will allow us just so much rope. Please notice carefully the next verse.
“But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” (Luke 12:48 emphasis mine)
When judgment comes, and it will come, I don’t know how or to what extent, but we will pay dearly for our sins as a nation simply because we have been so richly blessed and then turned against the very God who blessed us. I do feel strongly that after the Rapture, this country will be reduced to a dead carcass that will be picked clean by our enemies. However, there is no promise that God will wait until after the Rapture. It could be before that glorious event.
This next passage is from God to Israel, but the message is just as much ours to claim.
“Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?” (Ezekiel 33:11)
As a watchman on the wall, I simply reiterate what others have said, and that is we need to repent and we need to do so today.
Don’t be a fool. Even though most in this country, even the world, have gone mad with satanic glee, wake up. Remember this. Every person in hell believes in God and would give anything to have another chance. There are no atheists in hell. What we do with God while we are in this body will remain with us for eternity.
