Chapter 5 America's Future
Birth pangs bring warning & mercy
[Math.24:8; Luke 21:25]
Right now as scriptures clearly foretell, global 'birth pangs' & other predicted events are occurring simultaneously & with increasing intensity & frequency. This is because this generation was divinely marked as the End Time generation in 1948 with the re-birth of Israel. Today's 'birth pangs' are a key End Time indicator of the narrowing 'time' still left until the actual "start" of the final 7 Year Tribulation period. But, with every 'birth pang' comes another sign of God's great mercy & salvation in Christ being extended to all people worldwide. This is the actual divine purpose in today's foreordained birth pangs: For more souls to surrender into God's outstretched arms as they clearly recognize His nearness.
Importantly, scriptures show that today's 'birth pangs' "will lead you into Tribulation" , which is very near to being fulfilled in this generation. [Math.24:9, 33].
America's birth pangs...
For the United States [as a nation] more birth pangs will also continue to come upon the nation. This will bring more fear of the Lord & economic turmoil [potentially collapse] in order to bring America to our knees, spiritually. The purpose in this is so that America [as an nation] will REPENT from all of our continual abominations before God like aborting millions of babies, flagrant homosexuality, pornography, corruption & immorality in our lawmakers & society.
However, God's next move in America will NOT be "prosperity to the USA" as is commonly heard within the body of Christ. Numerous false prophets, false prophetesses & even many Christian leaders themselves have been predicting this year after year since the mid-90's. When it hasn't happened, they simply have extended the prophecy for another year. This is a false prophecy altogether.
Why would God Himself suddenly pour riches upon a lukewarm & unrepentant country who is stiff-necked & continually slaughters over a million innocent babies year after year, legally? This, He will not do. America's sins are great, but killing over 40 millions babies is probably the most abominable act in world history, second to none. In NO WAY is America [as a world government] in line for its "greatest financial reward ever" as is falsely prophesied today. [ However, God's Christian people individually within America who abide in Christ are definitely in line for His great favor & blessings, even financially. ]
More severe Warnings coming...
The current continuing mode of "birth pangs" for America will show a noticeable increase in severity & destructiveness. This will include more earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, fires, flooding, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, man-made fixtures breaking with disasterous effects. [ie. dams, bridges, buildings collapsing, etc.].
Why? To bring the USA to REPENTANCE FROM OUR WICKED WAYS. [2 Chron. 7:14]. In fact, the "next move" in America will be our own responsiveness to God in our repentance as a nation. Until then, America's sins will swell like a balloon ready to burst. The coming birth pangs will be even greater warnings to America than prior warnings from God, who has been patient. They will be increasingly more violent & frequent than America's 2 huge wake-up calls of Katrina & Rita in August & September of 2005. These were two of the most destructive hurricanes in world history.
Clearly, their purpose was a divine & merciful cry from God's heart to stop the abominations carried out within His beloved United States of America. Unfortunately, after the hurricanes, most of the short-lived best-heard discussions were ones of bewilderment of "why" this could have happened. Incredibly, most of America's religious Leaders took the same befuddled position as the matter was soon dropped to the side. But, where were all of today's so-called "prophets" who stood up & identified these warnings from God as signs to Repent?
But, why New Orleans? Since God's Word foreordains that various disasters [ "birth pangs" ] like hurricanes & earthquakes will definitely occur in the last End Time generation, then the next question would be "where?" will they take place? From God's perspective He will allow these catastrophes to occur in global locations where the most evil & sin exist.
In the United States, the city of New Orleans clearly qualified as one of our nation's prime evil spots. New Orleans was well-known for its evil society of voodoo & witchcraft practices, criminal activity & its saturation with organized crime. That city is now gone as a result.
Within days after Katrina wiped out New Orleans, one popular false prophet on the Evangelical TV airwaves predicted the "rise of New Orleans again, to an even greater city than before!". But, this will not happen. To the contrary, New Orleans will remain as a reminder to all of us in America of the declining mode which the USA is now in & of the horrendous & unspeakable sins which our country has committed before God. Moreover, greater warnings to America are just ahead until the nation turns away from its wickedness.
Other locations in the United States which are in direct line for coming divine "birth pangs" include San Francisco, the cities of Los Angeles / Hollywood & various cities in L.A. county, Orange County, Las Vegas, the pacific state of Washington, gulf coast states & cities, & the states of New York & Massachussetts to name a few.
Potentially for America, God's written Word provides great hope. "Righteousness exalts a nation" says Proverbs 14:34 . And Romans 5:20 shows one of God's eternal laws of mercy awaiting America in that "where sin exists & increases, then much more does the grace of God abound." These powerful & divine promises are now available for our country, IF America repents.
But, like the prophets of old who prayed in behalf of their countries' sins, millions of devout Christian believers in America have continually prayed for our leaders & asked God to forgive our nation. So far, He has listened & is still waiting for America to respond as evil pervades our society.
In fact, His mercies are clearly seen in Katrina & Rita where He miraculously protected American's lives when compared to the magnitude of these two natural disasters & their potential for lost lives.
God's Chosen Servants in the White House
Many efforts of God have been made towards our nation's repentance since 1973 when Roe vs. Wade legalized fetal genocide. In the White House itself, numerous strong believers in Christ Jesus have led our country since 1980. They were placed there as part of God's divine plan for America's repentance. President Reagan [1980-88] & both President Bushs' are clearly solid believers in Christ as their Savior & Lord.
For example, President George W. Bush [2000-2008] has operated very powerfully in these prophetical days & End Times by performing numerous actions of great faith & courage.
When given the sudden opportunity to fill the vacancies in the Supreme Court, then President Bush took bold & unwavering action. He promptly installed two Supreme Court Judges who are now in place to help reverse the greatest abomination in our land of legalized abortion. This was a spiritually strong move which precisely cooperated with God's divine intentions for America's repentance.
Regardless of opposition, President Bush did this based in his deep convictions in God, the Bible & Psalms Chapter 139 which clearly identifies the "forming" of a baby at conception by God Himself.
Also, President Ronald Reagan was used mightily as a servant of God when he brought great integrity, humility & wisdom to our country's leadership for 8 years. For example, on June 12, 1987 he exhorted Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this [E. German] wall!" . This powerful prophetical word came to pass effectively November 1989 resulting in an unprecedented modern opportunity for the move of the Spirit of God in East Germany, other countries in Europe & including atheistic Russia itself.
Since then & to this day, multitudes in Europe have been hearing the Gospel of Christ preached in these Last Days [some for the very first time] exactly as scriptures predict must happen to 'all the nations' just before the return of Christ. [Math.24:14].
But prophetically, what is God actually saying NOW to AMERICA ?
REPENT! Turn from your wicked ways! Humble yourselves in My sight! And embrace the Lord & be diligent to obey His Word! This is the exact call to America as a nation & to every American TODAY.
He is also calling all Leaders of America [starting with true 5-Fold Leaders of God to the President to national & state government leaders] to stand up together & call America to national repentance! And then to stand upright as the example as leaders.
In fact, America is being called to finally take heed to the powerful prophetical word which was spoken over the United States for 8 years ['80 - '88] by God's servant President Ronald Reagan. He repeatedly prophesied to America by quoting 2 Chronicles 7:14 over the American people. Unfortunately at best, our top religious Leaders & so-called "prophets" only interpreted Reagan's humble & soft delivery as being wonderfully adept at quoting Bible scriptures.
But, Reagan's words were far greater than just quoting scriptures. They were divinely inspired & perfectly timed to a nation which, so far, has still not recognized nor embraced God's cries to America to repent. Today, President Reagan's prophetical words hold even more weight in their warnings to America since the time has now been narrowed prophetically. The great American Christian President prophesied:
"And if My people who are called by My Name humble themselves & pray, & seek My face, & turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, I will forgive their sins, & I will heal their land." [2 Chron.7:14].
An unrepentant Country...
In scripture, there is another side of the coin for unrepentance. The written word shows what a nation can bring upon itself with continual rebellion & wickedness before God. This other side of the coin is exactly what America is facing if she continues unrepentantly and/or if she ever turns away from her total favor & support for Israel which is another vital principle of God by which a country can stand or fall. [Psalms 122:6; Gen.12:2,3].
So far, the U.S.A. has not been "uprooted" as a top world government. But, prophetically in the full scope of what's coming globally then clearly there is a short time left now for America to respond to God's call. Again, today's urgency is much greater than before for America's Leaders to stand together & boldy speak out concerning the sure consequence of America's continued unrepentance. God's Word warns clearly:
"But if you turn away & forsake My statutes [found in the written Word of God] which I have set before you & shall go & serve other gods & worship them, then I will uproot you from My land which I have given you, & this house which I have consecrated for My name I will cast out of My sight, & I will make it a proverb & a byword among all peoples. [2 Chronicles 7:19-22].
