Divine Warnings to the United States
It's clear that the catastrophes sweeping across the USA over the last years are divine warnings to AMERICA.
The warnings have been intensifying and bringing our nation to its knees economically. Why? In order that God may have our complete attention as individuals AND as a nation. Of course, other problems like skyrocketing oil, gas and commodity prices are also adding their effects to our spiralling-down financial woes as a nation. At this time prophetically, today's skyrocketing world prices will not dissipate but will continue to rise [like an upward staircase graph] until the foretold 'mark of the beast' is fulfilled in this generation.
In August of 2005, Hurricane Katrina itself was a major warning to America causing over 1800 deaths and being the most destructive and costliest hurricane in American history. Yet, no prophetical voices were publicly heard which called our nation to repentance. At best, only a few false prophets could be seen on TV causing more confusion to today's blind Christian leaders in debates about whether it was God or not. Overall, no convincing mention what- soever has been made with the true and critical prophetical voice to this country to Repent from the result of Katrina. Recently in 2008, the floodings and killer tornadoes hit again with extreme ferocity and destruction. The Midwest's flooding was the worst in 15 years. Now, in July 2008, the hurricane season is upon us again to add to America's current poised status of total collapse economically. Without any doubt, even greater hurricanes are coming globally in the months and years ahead. Why? Because they are birth pangs which inherantly are warnings and will 'deliver' this generation 'to Tribulation' as the Lord foretold in Matthew 24: 8, 9.
The 'trap' of our own blindness
Yet where are today's End Time prophets who blow the trumpet of alarm to America? What prophetical voices can be heard today who, like the prophets of old, are standing up with boldness and uprightness before God and proclaiming our nation's need to REPENT from our wicked ways and turn to God in total surrender for our own salvation and the salvation of our country?? They are nowhere to be found. Most [99%] of today's so-called Christian leaders and TV preachers are fulfilling the Apostle Paul's foresight of being End Time 'ear-ticklers' and having their heads completely in the sand prophetically.
Jesus' major forewarning for His End Time children is in critical need of being re-announced today in His statement: "Be on guard, that your hearts may not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day [End Time great tribulation period] come on you suddenly like a trap." [Luke 21:34].
2008: DIVINE Warnings to America RE: homosexuality
The most recent example of God's warnings occurred on the west coast. California's May 15th, 2008 Supreme Court decision to allow SAME-SEX-MARRIAGES amongst homosexuals was a major abomination in our land. [ CBS News/May 15, 2008: Calif. Supreme Court Ruling ]
God's response? To send an unprecedented LIGHTNING BOLT SYSTEM from the Pacific Ocean igniting an uparalleled 8000 lightning strikes resulting in the most ferocious fires ever seen in California. The lightning struck on June 24th, not even 6 weeks after the ruling, and as of today, July 21, 2008, many of the fires are still burning. Several days ago Headline News identified the fires to be the greatest fire catastrophe in California's history. [ News/June 25, 2008: 8000 strikes] And where did the LIGHTNING strikes hit? Precisely in Northern California and surrounding the GAY CAPITAL OF THE WORLD: San Francisco. [ View: NASA Space Images of N. Calif. fires ]
To the worldly mind then June 24th's firestorm can be per- ceived as an accident or coincidence or even tomfoolery to believe it was an act of God. But, to the contrary.
The Bible states clearly that "God spreads His lightning about Him, and covers the depths of the sea [ie. the Pacific ocean in June 24th's case]. For by these [lightning and the sea] He judges peoples."
It then states incredibly: "God covers His hands with the lightning, And commands it to strike the mark." [Job 36:30-32].
In NO WAY is it pure coincidence that not even 6 weeks after California's Court decision honoring GAYS [May 15, 2008] that 8000 lighting bolts struck the NORTHERN CALIFORNIA region surrounding San Francisco. Even scientists are amazed at the phenomenon which originated in the Pacific ocean off of San Francisco's coast.
Mercifully, almost no lives were lost since it is not God's plan to wipe us out. Importantly, most lightning strikes are acts of nature and NOT a direct act of God. For example, a person holding up an umbrella in the midst of a lightning storm is obviously inviting problems with nature's ways and not divine actions like in June 24th's divine act.
God's 'true Word' to America TODAY
If God really desired to wipe out the USA He has never had a better reason than America's wholesale legal destroying of over 40 million babies since 1973's High Court ruling in Roe vs. Wade.
Ironically today, the greatest Christian country in world history [USA] also has amassed the single-greatest abomination in world history before God in the systematic genocide of MORE innocent lives [babies] than all other lives lost in all of world history's wars COMBINED. Still, God is merciful and patient.
God intensely wants our attention. Why? So we can turn from our wicked ways as a nation and REPENT! And turn to Him and surrender to He who still loves us and is still mercifully reaching out to lost souls in these End Times. This is exactly God's spiritual WORD to this country right now. In these End Times great discernment is necessary in order to identify false preachers and so-called prophets who are actually 'noisy-gong' ministers in the house of God and who leave out the critical cry from the throne room for repent-ance. God's word today is the same which Jesus first spoke upon beginning His earthly ministry saying: "Repent! For the kingdom of God is at hand!"
However, today's dead-work ministers in America can be seen as those who love the approval of men, wear their collars backward, drape themselves in long flamboyant robes, loving to be called 'Reverend' and 'Bishop' and a so-called 'prophet' or 'prophetess'. Yet, they are neglecting God's children by not announcing the nearness of the Lord and God's call to repent. They have placed their own interests of making a name for themselves as priority.
But, all persons, including homosexuals and even today's unqualified ministers in America themselves, still have opportunity to repent since God's final judgements have not yet started. Once these start, according to Revelation Chapters 13 through 20, then Katrina and today's California fires will look absolutely miniscule compared to what's soon coming.
This divine call from God to America today is also the same globally. Namely, to repent, embrace the Lord Jesus and walk in uprightness and obedience to God's written Word. Those who do these things will fit into the End Time profile of God's true people which Paul identified as 'the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she should be holy and blameless.' [Eph.5:27].
Today's Major Prophecies are spring-loaded
Headline News today confirm that ALL MAJOR BIBLE prophecies are lined up right now GLOBALLY like ducks in a row. Even Daniel 9:27 which pinpoints antichrist signing a Mideast Peace Agreement which starts the Tribulation period is on the world's table right now. Although this event could literally take place tomorrow, it is more likely to occur in the months ahead. This is because of several key aspects which are still developing even behind the scenes in the current Mideast negotiations.
Amazingly, the nearness of the fulfillent of Daniel's prophecy was epitomized just recently by Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert himself who stated on July 13, 2008: 'We have never been so close to a possible Peace [Mideast] Agreement as today.'
Here again, this is major Bible prophecy ready to occur in this final generation regardless of the complete lack of acknowledgment in today's world and by America's self-serving mega ministers.
However today, the good news is found in one of our Lord's numerous exhortations to His End Time believers saying that, 'But, when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near!' [Luke 21: 28].
