Serious Reality Check

Friday, March 29, 2024

It’s time for a serious reality check. No, seriously, it’s extremely serious that every reader here checks, first, his or her spiritual reality as relates to knowing and serving the Lord Jesus Christ. Are we truly born again? Do we truly have a personal relationship with God in Christ? Right now it’s imperative that we know where we stand with God in Christ, because the imminent destruction that awaits this generation of humanity is just that: seriously imminent! Judgment from God is imminent. Judgment from unrepentant, proud, God-hating man is also imminent.

I recently wrote about “Knowledge Gone Afoul”, contrasting how people all lived the same for millennia before the end-time Dan. 12:4 prophetic explosion of knowledge that began in earnest at around 1900 AD. Truly, mankind has used that knowledge for greater evils than for good. We now live on the brink of that knowledge destroying humanity. In fact, many of the elite are now actually inciting the nuclear destruction of humanity. Of nations that have nuclear weapons there are enough of those weapons to destroy the entire world many times over. Why? Because the unrepentant, proud, God-hating hearts and minds of those in government control refuse to be humbled under God, nor do they repent and ask God’s forgiveness for their evil-mindedness.

We believers must discern God saying, “Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us’” (Psa. 2:1–3). Understand, that’s who government leaders are! And as for believers, God commands us to, “Therefore, ‘Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty’” (2 Cor. 6:17–18). Nuclear weapons and all their creators are indeed unclean, not minded after the things of God in Christ, but instead minded after the destruction of enemies. That’s what Satan wants, human destruction, for we are warned that Satan is the thief that comes only “to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10). And true discerning believers keep themselves from Satan’s mission to steal, kill and destroy.

America and the West are intentionally provoking the Russian Bear by providing billions of dollars and much military equipment and aid to Ukraine, a most corrupt and ungodly country. And as you are aware by now, recently there was a terror attack in the city of Moscow, Russia that killed about 143 people and wounded many more. Western media were quick to pin blame on “that radical jihadist organization ISIS was behind it, while Ukrainian officials also said that they had nothing to do with the tragedy”. Well, of course! But much evidence is now revealing the opposite. This seven-minute video reveals that Ukrainians were involved in this terror attack. In this article by Hal Turner he says that “One of the Moscow attackers, has been confirmed to be an ex-Ukrainian soldier who served in 2022”. And in this article we’re reminded that our US “State Department’s Victoria Nuland Warns Russia Will Receive ‘Nasty Surprises’”. Why is all this important? Because the imminent threat of a retaliatory nuclear strike on the US by Russia increases now daily. The US has provoked, meddled in and policed Russia’s affairs for way too long. I hope you read this article by the New York Post revealing the horrific devastations of a nuclear strike on the U.S. Pentagon and its unimaginable deadly consequences. Many nations today loathe the US for its hypocrisy, for its unjust policing in the affairs of other nations!

A lesson in remembrance. A few weeks after 9/11/2001, Pastor David Wilkerson delivered a word to his congregation about that nation-stunning event, and the proud unrepentant heart of America’s government leaders. In part Pastor Wilkerson said “Like most Americans, I wept as I saw Senators and Congressional leaders standing on the steps of the Capitol, singing, ‘God bless America…stand beside us, and guide us…’ Yet, as I was crying, the Lord reminded me, ‘Many of the leaders you see singing have worked to rule me out of American society. They are even determined to remove my name from American history books. And they’ve allowed the murder of millions of babies through abortion.’ Suddenly, I was struck by the absolute hypocrisy of it all. We give lip service to God, but we continue our slide into the mire of immorality.”

Indeed, it’s time for a serious reality check which begins with closely examining our personal relationship with God in Christ. Here’s why: while we sleep enemy nuclear missiles could find their target anywhere in America, possibly close to where any of us live. If that occurs, (and the possibility is increasing daily) don’t be caught dead without Christ as your Savior because at the point of death we enter eternity. And even if not attacked by nuclear missiles, the attacks may come by terrorist strikes as recently hit Moscow, Russia creating a mass casualty event. If our life unexpectedly ends as occurred to some this week in Baltimore, MD do we know where we’ll spend eternity? Many believe, and I agree, that the destruction of the bridge over the Patapsco River in Baltimore, MD was a planned terrorist attack, despite our government saying otherwise. This article posits that “They [government] know America is under attack but don’t want to undermine Joe Biden’s campaign for president at a sensitive time when Americans are already on edge because of the terrorists coming onto the U.S. through the open borders.” Barack Obama is one of the far Left’s elite. Is it coincidence that his recent movie Leave the World Behind crashes a cyber-attacked cargo ship into a beach? Folks, you can’t make this stuff up!

Do you know what being a Christian is not based upon? Take no comfort in the fact that you might attend a church weekly, sing in the choir, teach Sunday school, or tithe to any church, or are involved with another type of so-called ministry in any church. Take no comfort at all in any of those things. Here’s why, Jesus said “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (Matt. 7:21–23). Jesus speaks here to people involved in church business, in ministry, in preaching and teaching, even those who prophesy and cast out demons or perform wonders, people using Christ’s powerful name without a true new birth faith.

I really hope you get my new book “ON EAGLES’ WINGS” with the subtitle “God’s Call, Your Response, Your Life Journey, Through The Tribulation, Until The Rapture”. It calls our attention to God in Christ and His word, away from traditions, away from what we were all told to believe and to hear what God actually says. About the book, people say things like, “My eyes have really been opened” and “I didn’t know that” and “I got my Bible and it confirmed what you said”. My prayer has been that this book would drive people to God’s word and to help them discover that much of what we were all told to believe by trusted pastors and theologians was just traditions of man “making the word of God of no effect” (Mark 7:13). I would love to hear your feedback.
