America in Prophecy 8/14/2012 “Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!” Isaiah 5:8 . Does this verse pique your interest at all? Although Isaiah is addressing the Southern Kingdom of Israel, referred to as Judah, America should see a very striking resemblance in regards to her own current state of affairs in this and the following Scriptures. Israel was used by God as an example for other nations to follow, at this point in chapter 5 of Isaiah’s writings the Northern Kingdom of Israel was probably already gone, conquered by the Assyrians, and the Southern Kingdom of Judah was on the fast track toward becoming captives in Babylon. They had set an example alright, but it was anything but godly. The entire world once looked to America for leadership. God’s hand was on America to be an example to people of other nations on how to live godly lives. Such should be the

Wake up America – He’s Not Christian 8/23/2012 “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:” 1 Peter 1:22 .

Unfeigned love is sincere love, undisguised. There should be no doubt when it comes to our love for our brothers and sisters in Christ. Certainly opposition to our way of life is coming and it’s coming like a runaway locomotive. But when that opposition comes from a professing Christian the rest of us should be very suspicious of that person. Becoming a Christian is a life changing event which every born again believer in Christ has experienced. When we become born again, born from above, from God, the one thing we want most in this life is to please our Father in Heaven.

The Coming Storm 8/09/2012 “We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for we have sinned against the LORD our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD our God.” Jeremiah 3:25 . The nation of Israel was in trouble. They had ignored God and sinned against Him for generations. Can other nations learn from the mistakes Israel made? Nations today are of the same mindset as Israel all those millennia ago. Humanity as a whole has learned nothing. God is still being ignored, even forsaken. Today’s societies have dishonored God, His creation is nothing more than a disgrace, and we hide ourselves in our shame. God’s patience is surely waning and His judgment is upon us. When a nation or a people contrive amongst themselves, against wisdom, to systematically remove the God of all creation from the sphere of common knowledge, consequences will follow. God may well take a step back so that thos
