In addition to the return to the evil days of Noah (transgenderism) and the days of Lot (LGBTQ+ agendas), world conditions are rapidly deteriorating as nations and people are choosing between rabid antisemitism and Palestine’s Hamas terrorist organization that initially attacked Israel and slaughtered over 1,400 Israelis. Choosing sides: that’s what the non-discerning do, those with no spiritual equilibrium and knowledge of what God said of anti-Christ peoples. Feeling no restraint they choose sides between two wicked, unbelieving, anti-Christ peoples and then feel justified in their decision. This should not be with professing born again believers, but sadly, that’s the case.
Antisemitism riots, marches and protests are occurring on college and university campuses all over the world. Pro-Palestinian sympathizers, and increasingly entire nations are calling for the total annihilation of the state of Israel. Russia’s Vladimir Putin has declared Israel an “enemy”. As true believers, knowledgeable of God’s end-time prophetic Word we should not be surprised by this, because we know that God said the time is coming in the end of days when “I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; The city shall be taken, The houses rifled, And the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city” (Zech. 14:2). That occurs in the days of the tribulation yet to come.
Another prophet said, “Proclaim this among the nations: ‘Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, Let all the men of war draw near, Let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords And your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’ Assemble and come, all you nations, And gather together all around. Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O LORD. ‘Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; For there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations. Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, go down; For the winepress is full, The vats overflow—For their wickedness is great’” (Joel 3:9–13). This also occurs in the days of the seven-year tribulation as the resurrection rapture draws nearer.
All of this, however, is setting the stage for an all-out WWIII, producing a massive population reduction of Earth. Will the United States of America survive the coming conflicts as it posits itself as the world’s police force? In its arrogance and wickedness, I don’t see America being sustained too much longer. I think the judgment of God will visit America in the near future for her outright rejection of God from the highest offices in the land to its centers of education and beyond. The fundamental destruction of American culture and anti-Christ movements was first undertaken and rabidly enforced by former President Barack Hussein Obama, and his wicked societal policies are now being put on steroids by President Joe Biden. Those two presidents have caused the harshest divide between Americans that will not be healed or restored unless sincere, humble repentance and confession to Christ comes from the hearts of the wicked.
A glance in the rear view mirror of America tells us that, as a nation, we have fallen into great wickedness and rebellion. God’s judgment is coming and it will be severe. God cannot and will not be mocked. Know the Lord Jesus by true saving faith. Prepare yourself and your family. Be guarded. War is coming. America is spread thin across the world. America is highly vulnerable. America is not our hope, but only the Lord Jesus Christ can save unto everlasting life.
