This election seems to be our national decision about where we are heading... Freedom and Democracy, or Socialism and Government Rule. It is hard for me to see my country becoming what it is. I hoped to be gone when Prophecies became this real.
We see the increasing violence, we see the difference between a godly nation and one that is honoring abortion, euthanasia, mercy killing, addictions, greed, self, and alternative sexuality in children and adults.
Those who hate the boundaries GOD places on our lives, for our own good, will do anything they can to malign the faith of believers. The theme seems to be force... and the anger keeps rising every year. In the Bible, there are only two real references to the way the world will be in the End Times... one of them is about Sodom before it was destroyed.
This prophecy is about the sexual appetites of its citizens and the inability of the populations to stop them. I wouldn't say we are as violent as Sodom yet, but we are heading in that direction. The attitude of force against anything related to GOD is becoming open and vicious.
When the two angels came to take Lot and his family out of Sodom because GOD was going to destroy it, the Bible tells us men rushed from all over the city to be the first to conquer the new visitors. The Bible tells us that Lot was willing to sacrifice his daughters to appease the violent men. The Bible tells us they had a huge "lock" on their door to protect themselves from what was outside.
I can't imagine living in a place like that... and I have seen inner cities I was afraid of.
Violent control is not always physical. We have seen how the courts have been used to hurt and destroy Christians. We see the media used to make everyone afraid to believe what they want to. We have seen small children used to further the cause of the LGBT community. We have seen "coalitions" created to prevent the success of any other theology.
I have wondered how many of the gay people I see on TV and in the news became that way by force, by fear, by abuse... thinking there was no other choice.
Only GOD knows the hearts of each of us... whatever our sin may be. He is the only one who can know how to judge these issues. I have just tried to understand how to protect myself and my children and my family and my friends and my Christian Community.
How can we approve the purposeful murder of unborn children, simply for the "cause" of making it legal. I can see how abortion is really a modern form of child sacrifice, how it protects the man who created the child with the mother, and how greed is the reason it is so important for some to protect.
Greed is also behind "mercy killing" - another form of legalized murder. Euthanasia, volunteer suicide, the high cost of medical services, government health insurance, the war between Democrats and Republicans, the national budget and debt, the breakdown of the family structure - including large distances between family members because of work, education, and other factors, all contribute to the changes in our nation and its values. Once the government controls health care, it will begin to limit what is approved for payment. If the government reaches the 100% level in taxation, we will all be employees of the government. There will be no getting away from the governments ability to decide our entire lives.
America is not ready for this kind of submission. We don't believe it will ever happen. We are the frog that is put in the water when it is cool and then boiled without a fight because the heat rises slowly.
I believe this election is the second major turning point in our future history... I believe 9/11 was the first real evidence of GOD removing His protection from our nation. This is all tied to prophecy. If Trump wins, it is only four years (we hope) until the next point of decision. Prophecy will come true, we just don't know how or when. We see the signs of what GOD warned us about, but only GOD knows all the details of how it will become reality.
I hope and pray that GOD will help us to elect Trump again... just to find more time to fight against the tide of evil that is taking over the world on its way to the Antichrist and the final end of our lives.
What matters most now?
I'm not sure I can answer that for everyone. I am still trying to find ways to protect myself and other Christians. We need to think about what is coming. We need to find ways to protect each other on the path forward.
If we can gather together, we can find answers together.
