As Americans Jettison Almighty God, Society Races Towards Collapse and Calamity

Editor’s Note: It’s a fact that God will not strive with man forever – Gen 6:3. And as such we may be seeing the evidence of this right now. America has kicked God out of its midst. Oh yes, there is a remnant of real Christians but we are few; recall what Jesus said … “Many are called but few are chosen” -Matt 22:14. These Scriptures are coming into focus right now, yet people are oblivious to what’s happening. Even so-called [fake] Christians don’t know or care about the signs of the times and what they mean signalling the return of our Lord and Savior.

I don’t know about you but I am longing for the return of the Lord and going to live with Him for all eternity.

Is this your number one focus too…?

Nations, countries, cities, towns, cultures, economies, agriculture, law and order, and Biblical boundaries are all being throw into ghastly turmoil and many are in distress. Why? No God in their midst.

“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6- And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.” -Rev 6:5-6 (KJV)

Many U.S. Cities Are Already Starting To Resemble Post-Apocalyptic Cesspools As America’s Collapse Accelerates

By Michael Snyder in June, 2021

For a moment, I would like you to take an imaginary tour of a major U.S. city with me, and I would like for you to try to guess which city I am talking about.  As you stroll along the sidewalks in the heart of this city, it seems like tents have been erected everywhere.  Homelessness is completely and utterly out of control in this particular city, and even though city officials keep making more promises the crisis just continues to get worse.  As you continue your tour, you notice multiple addicts doing drugs right in front of you.  Drug needles, human waste and other trash are strewn all over the place, and you wonder why nobody from the city has cleaned up the mess.  All of this filth has created a stench that is overpowering at times, and you try not to gag.  As you travel deeper into the urban core of this city, you are shocked to see two men with guns carjack a woman a couple of blocks away.  Not wanting to get involved, you abruptly change direction.  You are startled when a couple of addicts that look like they were pulled straight out of a zombie movie start asking you for money, and you begin instinctively walking faster without even thinking about it.  Unfortunately, you have stumbled into an alley that you should never have gone down, and you now find yourself completely surrounded by curious street people.  You try to make a break for it, but it is too late.

I’ll stop our imaginary tour right there.

Can you guess which major U.S. city I am talking about?

Sadly, the reality of the matter is that there are many U.S. cities that closely fit the description that I just gave you.  For example, Los Angeles was once one of the most beautiful cities on the entire planet, but today it is being described as a “squalid cesspool”

The Democrat-controlled city of Los Angeles has devolved into a squalid cesspool of rampant crime, uncontrolled homelessness and filthy streets littered with trash, drug paraphernalia and human waste.

That’s the observation of numerous Californians, including award-winning actor James Woods, who lamented on Monday that the picturesque city he once loved “is gone.”

If you walk through the streets of Los Angeles today, you will find that homeless people have erected tents literally all over the city.  Jeremiah Babe has demonstrated this over and over again in his excellent videos, and the footage that he captures during his visits to the core of Los Angeles just seems to keep getting worse over time.

As conditions in Los Angeles deteriorate, it is fueling a dramatic rise in violent crime.  The murder rate in Los Angeles is up 95 percent so far this year, and it is now the number one political issue in the entire city.

Further north, San Francisco officials are dealing with their worst drug epidemic ever.  San Francisco has always had a big problem with drugs, but Dr. Christopher Colwell says that the widespread use of fentanyl has taken things to an entirely different level…

“Our most immediate threat right now is the opioid epidemic and the trauma we are seeing. We are seeing increases I haven’t seen in my career around dependency and overdoses, mostly involving fentanyl. We always had problems with opioids, specifically heroin, but fentanyl has changed the whole landscape of drugs.”

When we think of addicts, we tend to envision street people in our minds, but in San Francisco a lot of people that are overdosing these days are respected professionals

A physician, two nurses, a professional athlete, a drug dealer and a lawyer who had nodded off in court. Teenagers, specifically a 14- and a 15-year-old. And a 7-year-old who got into a stash in her mother’s purse.

These are some of the types of people Dr. Christopher Colwell, the chief of emergency medicine at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, has recently seen in the emergency room for medical issues related to fentanyl use and overdoses.

Whenever you have large numbers of drug addicts in a particular city, you are going to have a problem with property crime.  Addicts are always looking for more money to pay for their next hits, and shoplifting has gotten wildly out of control in the city.

What makes things even worse is that shoplifters in San Francisco face very light consequences if they are actually caught, and so at this point they have become extremely brazen

Alarming video captured the moment a brazen robber filled a garbage bag with products at a San Francisco Walgreens and bicycled out of the store after no one tried to stop him.

The footage posted on Twitter by ABC7 Reporter Lyanne Melendez was filmed on Monday afternoon in a Walgreens at the corner of Gough and Fell streets in the Bay Area – where 17 of the pharmacy’s stores have been forced to close in recent years due to theft.

I watched the video, and the thief actually brushes right up against the security guard without any concern whatsoever.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem – Psa 122:6 (KJV)

Are You Anxiously Longing for the Return of the Lord?

A Crown of Righteousness for Those Who Love His Appearing.

“In the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.” -2 Tim 4:8 (NASB)

Hre’s a big statement and if you disagree with me then please search the scriptures to prove me wrong. Here it is: If you are not longing for the return of the Lord, eagerly waiting for His arrival, then are you a real born-again, saved by His blood, Christian?

We as Christians should be, must be longing for the appearing again of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our entire being must be pining for the return of the Lord to be with Him forever. Our daily focus must be on Him; our thoughts, motives, thinking and actions. We must live a life of purity (1 John 3:3), a life of our affections set on things above and not on things here on earth – Col 3:2. You see most Christians – at least the ones in Western Christianity – believe that His coming will disrupt their worldly lives and so don’t want Him to return now. They want to be around their families and see their kids and grand-kids grow up (nothing wrong with this other than the Lord must number One in your life, with family second). Most, can I say, think that if Christ were to arrive now or soon it would mess up their regular life. So they don’t look for His appearing and want His arrival. How sad.

We must be living our lives each and every day with the expectation and realization of His return or our personal rapture (death) unto Him and therefore be ready to meet Him at any time. 

“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” -Heb 9:28 (KJV)

But do we…? That’s the big question.

So many are in a Christianity routine of ceremony, ritual with no purpose. Going to church for social or ritualistic reasons with little thought as to why we came and what to do. Oh yeah, the actions are there – singing songs, raising hands, bowing heads but what about our hearts. When they are measured or weighed what will they indicate? Jer 17:10. A heart dedicated and surrendered to God full of sincere praise and thanksgiving or one empty and void of spiritual substance?

There’s a parable in Luke 12:35-40 that may shed some light on our readiness for the Master’s return.  

“Be ready for service and have your lamps lit. 36- You must be like people waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet so that when he comes and knocks, they can open the door for him at once. 37- Those slaves the master will find alert when he comes will be blessed.” -Luke 12:35-37 (HCSB)

We must be (not should, possibly, or maybe) without question ready for His arrival with our lamps lit and prepared for our Master’s return. Are we prepared and ready to meet Him and welcome Him into our lives? Or … are our Christian activities, actions, and thoughts just for show and insincere at best? You know God measures our hearts, He looks down from His throne and sees right through our actions and put-ons looking at the real intents of our hearts and where we are at with Him. This should be a sobering and awakening thought for all of us, every day. 

“I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds.” – Jer 17:10 (NASB)

Friends, if you are not looking for His appearing might I suggest that your walk with Christ needs are hard introspective [re-]examination. Are you a Christian in name only or one in word, deed, thought and expectation of His return? Remember … the middle-of-the-road people – the lukewarm bunch – will be spit, spewed and vomited out of His mouth – Rev 3:16. If you are a member of the lukewarm club … you may dread going to church, dread reading your Bible, rarely make time to pray or seek the Lord just you and Him. A lukewarm Christian will talk a big talk but deep inside they are dead spiritually. Lights are out and no one is at home. And most of all a member of the lukewarm club will not look forward to the Lord’s return.

So, therefore, in sincerity, we must be eagerly awaiting His return and anticipating it at the appointed time. We must be ready at the door waiting for His knock to open and allow Him in. The days we live in are dangerous, treacherous, evil and wicked. Our lives are in peril wherever we are so we must be ready to meet Him either here, there, or in the air at the catching away or rapture. You ready?

The time is now to prepare and get ready. The time is now to stop playing church and/or playing Christian. The time is now to get right with God, reading our Bibles, seeking Him every day, confessing, and repenting of our sin. And we must avoid evil and live in holiness. These things are daily requirements for any professing, heaven-bound Christian. But do we practice them with a sincere heart? Friend, where are you at today in your walk with Christ – are you just playing a role, or are you sincere and serious in your heart, soul and mind?

Soli Deo Gloria

Faith, Hope and Trust for Tough Times Now and the Road Ahead

Do You Know Jesus Christ as Your Lord, Savior, and King?

Ww are living in a very volatile and dangerous time of world history. Events in society, nature, geopolitics, and government are changing fast and many people are not keeping a watchful eye on what’s occurring around them. The Middle East is seemingly on fire, the global economy is failing unlike ever before, mass migrations of people are causing severe problems in the infrastructure of societies. Nature for sure seems to be signaling something … perhaps the Lord God Almighty is trying to tell us to wake up and get right with His Son. The Book of Revelation calls out many terrible things that will befall sinful and unrepentant mankind in the last days, which I believe, are right in front of us. So what do we do? What do we believe? This, my friends, is where your faith, hope, and trust in the Lord must kick in and direct your life. We must ask Jesus to increase our faith in these last to the last days; as we see events signal His soon return and the calamities that will occur.

FAITH

“And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. 6- And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.” -Luke 15:5-6 (KJV)

The times are getting and will get very tough. So it’s extremely important that you know exactly who and what you put your faith in. If you count on your family and friends to save you and shore up your faith, you are dead wrong. They will fail you just like the things of this world. Therefore, you must put your faith in the Lord Jesus for He is eternal, He is real and He will never leave you or forsake you (Heb 13:5). You must know today that if things started to go south around you, who would you look to or turn to for help. Facing this fact while things here in the US are somewhat stable, for now, is prudent and scriptural. You must practice a daily lifestyle of faith as written in Heb 11:6, for this pleases the Lord.

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” -Heb 11:6 (KJV)

HOPE

As the days ramp up in difficulty after difficulty across the entire spectrum of our lives, we must know the hope that we as Christians have within us. The times will get very harsh and terrible. If you are wishfully thinking otherwise or have chosen to keep your head buried firmly in the sand, you have not read your Bible! It’s now time to put into practice this hope thing that we’ve heard about it time and time again in church. You have heard it; for some, it’s been a ‘concept’ and scripture verse here and there. The time is coming folks, where it will have to be a very present reality in your faith. For without this hope, this hope that a Christian must possess in the Lord Jesus, you will be likely swept away in deception and deceit and may very well be lost. These times are coming in like a flood – it’s time to be rock solid in your hope in the Lord. Even now people everywhere are being lied to and deceived in the areas of politics and religion. Therefore, it is imperative that we know that our blessed hope is in Christ and He is coming again to take us from here to His home in heaven. This is fundamental to the Christian faith. Do you hold on to this daily?

“Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;” -Heb 6:19 (KJV)

TRUST

What’s your security in today? Do you trust your job? Your youth? Your health? Your wealth? How about your friends and family? How much time do you spend with these types of things versus how much time do you spend with Jesus: in prayer, in meditation, and reading His word – the Bible, and in knowing Him? “He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.” -Prov 11:28 (KJV).  Our trust in God’s provision must be foremost in our minds as the days progress. He alone will provide for us but we must trust in Him and lean not onto our own understanding and other resources. 

“This is what the Lord says: “Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the Lord.” -Jeremiah 17:5 (NLT)

Folks, it’s time to think about these things seriously with a clear mind and tender heart. The times ahead will prove you either a Christian or a fake. And unfortunately, many will fall for they have not sought the Lord in their lives nor spent the quiet time with Him in strengthening and bolstering their faith, hope, and trust in Him. If you, in your faith, are teetering like a flower in a high wind, it’s time to get right with God! If you are playing games with your faith in Christ, it’s time to shed the games and get right with Him. If you claim to be a Christian but live sitting on the fence with one foot in worldly stuff and the other foot in Christianity, it’s time to make a decision either 100% with and for Him or not (Matt 12:30). If you are a fence-sitter, God will vomit you out of His mouth as you will be found lukewarm in your faith when you stand before Him in the Judgment – Rev 3:16. Remember the sobering and faith-shaking words of Joshua in —>>> Josh 24:15

If you are not a Christian and have not placed your faith and life in Christ to save you from a life separated from Him in the depths of hell (yes, I said hell) then today is the day of salvation for you. Today is the day of hope in Christ. But you must do something … Don’t put it off anymore!  Your hope must be grounded and founded in His love, mercy, and grace. He came to this world as the Lamb of God to give His life as a ransom for us. Therefore we have forgiveness for our sins purchased by His sacrifice on the cross of Calvary. For His blood paid that costly price for your soul and mine. It’s time to put off the things of this life and choose Christ.
