Hear this, America…
“Therefore I bring charges against you again,” declares the LORD.
“And I will bring charges against your children’s children. Cross over to the coasts of Kittim and look, send to Kedar and observe closely; see if there has ever been anything like this: Has a nation ever changed its gods? (Yet they are not gods at all.)
But my people have exchanged their Glory for worthless idols.
Be appalled at this, O heavens, and shudder with great horror,” declares the LORD.
“My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.” [Jeremiah 2:9-13]
The situation in America today is similar and deteriorating rapidly. Your churches are weak and vacillating – few take seriously the Word of God and ignore most Bible prophecy. You take from Scripture what you feel comfortable with – that which fits your preconceived ideas, and ignore the rest.
But, be warned,
Wherever the Word of God is hidden or ignored, there will be certain destruction.
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. [Galatians 6:7]
Partly because the priests in Israel had failed to teach God’s Word to the people, Israel suffered. There was no faithfulness, no love, and no acknowledgment of God in the land. Rather there was only cursing, lying, murder, stealing and adultery.
Like in ancient Israel, the problem in America today is the people are guilty of forsaking God and attempting to create their own paths to heaven with broken cisterns.
Like the prisoners in Platos’ Allegory of the Cave, few of you know what truth is anymore, replacing fact with feeling on the altar of relativism and ridiculing anyone who claims to have truth. When presented with objective truth, you naysayers throw up your arms and refuse to even listen anymore.
This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God. [John 3:19-21]
Sadly, most people today love the darkness they live in and do not want to come into the light (truth). Scripture would suggest that is because they do not want their evil deeds done in darkness to be exposed. As most Americans are now living in darkness and refuse the truth, their consciences have been seared and like the brazen prostitute; they refuse to blush with shame. They attempt to obscure their lives in what George Orwell called doublethink and their language is doublespeak.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. [Isaiah 5:20]
WAKE UP Christian!
Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – John 8:31-32
WOW… you want to know the truth. You will if you hold to (follow, continue to obey) Christ’s teaching. It will set you free.
If you are to make any sense out of what is happening in our world today, you need to have truth backed up with knowledge and understanding.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge – Hosea 4:6
What is truth?, you might ask.
Mark Passio says “TRUTH is OBJECTIVE, meaning that it is NOT based on the perceptions of human beings (which is capable of wavering). Truth is simply that which is. It is that which has occurred in the past and that which is occurring in the present.”
Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6
Solipsists reject the truth.
Solipsism is a common ideology today that proposes that only one’s own mind is sure to exist. Solipsists contend that knowledge of anything ouside one’s own mind is unsure, hence there is no such thing as objective truth, and nothing about the external world and it’s workings can actually be known. Hence, these people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Solipsism places the individual at the center rather than God and all reality is perceived from the perspective of “me.” That is why they can say things like, your truth or my truth, but there is no objective truth. Everything is seen from the perspective of the individual.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. – Prov. 1:7
Fools despise wisdom and discipline and cannot understand Scripture. The more they read and the less they understand lead them to criticize what they cannot understand or comprehend. They see God’s laws as nonsense and ridicule those of us who strive to follow God’s laws (see Matt. 13:10-15).
Who is it he is trying to teach? To whom is he explaining his message? To children weaned from their milk, to those just taken from the breast? For it is: Do and do, do and do, rule on rule, rule on rule; a little here, a little there. Very well then, with foreign lips and strange tongues God will speak to this people, to whom he said, “This is the resting place, let the weary rest:; and, “This is the place of repose” – but they would not listen. So then, the word of the LORD to them will become: Do and do, do and do, rule on rule, rule on rule; a little here, a little there – so that they will go and fall backward, be injured and snared and captured. – Isa. 28:9-13
“… with foreign lips and strange tongues God will speak to this people.”
The politically correct satanic inspired lie of “Tolerance” – where God’s Word is not proclaimed because people fear insulting or offending others has so infiltrated America today that few people even recognize the destructive results that inevitably follow. These people do not understand what God says in Scripture and do not believe they will be judged for their disbelief.
If you’re one who has redefined sin using the tolerance yardstick, I guarantee you won’t like what you read here. You will likely be offended by what you believe to be a narrow-minded, hate-filled, and intolerant viewpoint.
Praise God! That means your conscience may still be intact.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. – Ps 111:10
Those with good understanding will follow God’s commandments. Those who do not obey God and keep His commandments have a poor understanding of Scripture. If you understand God’s law and do not obey, you are responsible for your actions.
I am not suggesting that you are “saved” by following God’s commandments or that you are condemned by not following them (that would be a salvation by “works”).
Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin. – Romans 3:20
But, I do believe there are consequences to our actions. There are blessings for us today when we follow His law and there are curses for us today when we don’t (Deuteronomy 28).
George Gordon points out for most of those in the American church today, they follow only 52 of the 133 titles of law in the Scripture and are in violation of and do not practice 81. The decline of society today and the eventual destruction of America is a direct result of our not following God any longer.
Wake up Christians!
And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. – Romans 13:11
If consenting with or agreeing with the thief is wicked, how much more wicked is it to support and defend unbiblical laws? Many churchgoers claim a form of religiosity or churchianity (their own cisterns), yet the Scripture is closed to them. They do not understand. For them, Christianity is just organized paganism. Look at many of the images, the rituals, the holidays of the church today. Paganism cloaked in Christianity.
Rather than following God’s laws, many follow the laws of man.
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
God tells us in Psalm 50 that He will not tolerate hypocrisy and will judge the wicked. There is a day of reckoning coming. When we are passively indifferent and remain silent about the evil in our society, we are in effect joining the wickedness and are as guilty as the perpetrators of the crime (see v. 18).
But to the wicked, God says: “What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips? You hate my instruction and cast my words behind you. When you see a thief, you join with him; you throw in your lot with adulterers. You use your mouth for evil and harness your tongue to deceit. You speak continually against your brother and slander your own mother’s son. These things you have done and I kept silent; you thought I was altogether like you. But I will rebuke you and accuse you to your face. [Psalm 50:16-21]
“Hypocrisy is wickedness, which God will judge. And it is too common, for those who declare the Lord’s statutes to others, to live in disobedience to them themselves. This delusion arises from the abuse of God’s long-suffering, and a wilful mistake of his character and the intention of his gospel. The sins of sinners will be fully proved on them in the judgment of the great day.” [Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary]
It is time, indeed past time, for Christians to stand up and resist the satanic tyranny leading many to destruction. You must not remain silent any longer! Neutrality is synonymous with consent and will be judged by God. Wake Up!
There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart that you can’t take part! You can’t even passively take part! And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus — and you’ve got to make it stop! And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it — that unless you’re free the machine will be prevented from working at all.” – Mario Savio
God is Speaking to us Today through the Holy Scriptures
If you have ears to hear and eyes to see, God is speaking to you through His prophets and the words contained in Bible Prophecy. He is calling out to His chosen people to be a holy remnant faithful to Him and His calling.
Just as God spoke to His people through the prophet Jeremiah in 608 BC, I believe His words are as relevant today as they were then…
Thus says the LORD, “If you will not listen to Me, to walk in My law which I have set before you, to listen to the words of My servants the prophets, whom I have been sending to you again and again, but you have not listened; then I will make this house like Shiloh, and this city I will make a curse to all the nations of the earth.” – Jeremiah 26:4-6
The rest is history, as they say.
Domination, destruction, and slavery.
And when the people ask, “Why has the Lord our God done all this to us?” you will tell them, “As you have forsaken me and served foreign gods in your own land, so now you will serve foreigners in a land not your own.” – Jeremiah 5:19
They did not hallow God’s name, His decrees and judgments. Instead, they allowed their community to become desecrated with foreign gods and dug their own cisterns in their own way. I believe we stand again at the precipice of God’s judgment today as the Church is once again being invaded by foreign gods and Christians are busy digging their own cisterns. The results, too, will be the same… domination, destruction, and slavery.
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. [2 Chronicles 7:14]
