But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? II Peter 3:10-12
Last night while watching the Presidential debate, the Lord spoke this to me: "The fuse has been lit!" As I continued watching I began to realize that there is absolutely nothing man can do to stop the progression of the coming day of the Lord! The apostle Peter reminds us that the day of the Lord has been prophesied for eons and will come at the appointed time.
Imagine a huge bundle of dynamite with its fuse just lit and depending on its length it will determine when the explosion will happen. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the world has entered a time of chaos, with ISIS and many other Islamic factions spreading their violent aggression around the globe. There is civil unrest in America and the super powers of the world are rattling their nuclear swords, only to bring an end by the push of a button!
America has become a liberal God-less landscape, littered with the vain ramblings of politically incorrect fools, spewing out their poisonous rhetoric, even blaspheming the Most High God! Violence of all kinds has broken out in every city as lawlessness expands its deadly tentacles into our youth and into every facet of humanity. The once great and powerful government of the USA has been corrupted by the Obama-led liberal socialistic agenda.
The spirit of Anti-Christ has prevailed as Christianity has been attacked on every level, leaving a world-wide church, splintered and powerless with perverse men polluting the sound doctrine of the Word of God, only to tickle the ears of the unbelievers! Jesus warned that there would be many false prophets in the last days and so there are. Everywhere you look Christ is belittled and degraded with even the Pope saying that the pathway to God is obtainable through many different religions!
Being an American Spirit filled believer I would like to think this country could recover from its obvious terminal disease of lawlessness and blatant rejection of God from every area of government, but seeing the corruption of the American church and the lack of biblical teaching and the preaching of repentance I fear it may be over for the greatest nation on the planet. Only repentance on a national level could stop the impending judgment of a God, deeply offended by our disobedient and disrespectful behavior! May God have mercy!
Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. Therefore beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless. II Peter 3:13,14
