Event Horizon, Part II: The Cover Up
Son of man, when a land sins against Me by persistent unfaithfulness, I will stretch out My hand against it; I will cut off its supply of bread, send famine on it, and cut off man and beast from it. Ezekiel 14:13
Since the Deep Water Horizon oil platform blew up and sank a month ago the catastrophe has become worse than I imagined and the Lord is exposing the cover up of America. The oil spewing from the ruptured well continues to pollute the Gulf area symbolizing the sins of this country in regards to innocent blood.
Even as the oil company, the EPA, and the other related industries continue to lie and blame shift about the amount of oil that is spilling into the Gulf, America continues to cover up her sins. What is amazing about this is the fact that no one seems to be doing anything about it. Every day the oil continues to ooze out at a phenomenal rate and is threatening to destroy a great portion of the Gulf coast area.
This past week Texas adopted the new revised textbooks that are actually changing history and whitewashing the sins of the past generations. For instance the slave trade, one of America's most grievous sins has been renamed, the "Atlantic Triangular Trade" giving slavery a more palatable title. The abomination of making slaves of human beings led to a bloody civil war that if we don't repent of will again stain America with bloodshed.
"It is definitely because they have misled My people by saying, 'Peace!' when there is no peace. And when anyone builds a wall, ( the foundation of God's word ) behold they plaster it over with whitewash; so tell those who plaster it over with whitewash, that it will fall. A flooding rain will come, and you, O hailstones, will fall; and a violent wind will break out. Ezekiel 13:10,11 NASB
THE WELL IS POLLUTED
"Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts concerning the prophets: 'Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, ( pollution ) and make them drink the water of gall; for from the prophets of Jerusalem pollution has gone out into all the land..' " Jeremiah 23:15
The word of the living God has been lost and pollution has gone forth from the pulpits of America! The prophetic voice has been silenced and replaced with self help recipes that indulge the flesh and lead God's people into further apostasy.
America's social ills and blatant racism cannot be remedied by political means, and the innocent blood that has been shed can only be atoned for by the genuine repentance of God's people. The only cleansing agent able to repair the damage done by false prophets and self help gurus is the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ brought about by confessing and repenting of our sins and the sins of our ancestors.
As the oil of the Deep Water Horizon continues to pollute the coast so does the word of the false prophets of America continue to pollute God's people with lies and deception! If the true prophets of yesteryear were to reemerge they would be appalled by what they would see today in our assemblies. Isaiah, Jeremiah, Samuel, not to mention John the Baptist and the Lord Jesus Himself would be absolutely astonished by the filth that is presented to their people.
Thus says the Lord of hosts: "Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you. They make you worthless; they speak a vision of their own heart, not from the mouth of the Lord. They continually say to those who despise Me, the Lord has said, "You shall have peace;" and to everyone who walks according to the dictates ( stubbornness or imagination ) of his own heart, they say, 'No evil shall come upon you.' " Jeremiah 23:16,17
VIOLENT STORMS OF JUDGMENT
For who has stood in the council of the Lord, and perceived and heard His word? Who has marked His word and heard it? Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord has gone forth in fury, a violent whirlwind! It will fall violently on the head of the wicked.
The anger of the Lord will not turn back until He has executed and performed the thoughts of His heart. In the latter ( last ) days you will understand it perfectly. Jeremiah 23:18-20
The storms of judgment are upon America, even as the oil of Horizon continues to pollute the Gulf so America's sin pollutes the land causing great devastation. Like an unseen moth, the moral fabric of the country has been eaten away because there has been no word of correction from the people of God.
Natural storms destroy property and cause great financial loss and grief and the storms of judgment are no different. America is in financial ruin and for all practical purposes the government is bankrupt. Over the past twenty five years both natural and supernatural judgment has eaten away the financial strength of America making her a debtor nation and weakening her position militarily.
The 911 attack was carried out by the same people that God sent against Israel when they sinned and yet no one noticed and rushed off to war, half-cocked to the wrong nation costing billions of US dollars, not to mention the thousands of lives lost, and for what? The twin towers were no different than the tower of Babel, a symbol of pride and greed erected to signify man's strength and arrogance.
Open your eyes and see! Sickness of all kinds, war, drug and alcohol addiction, children killing children and parents, suicide, divorce, murder, and rape. The nightly news is filled with violent crimes of robbery, home invasion and blatant attacks of all kinds on innocent people. We are living in a war zone. People are losing their homes and jobs and the entire country is in political and economic chaos!
Jesus said, that in the last days most people's love would grow cold because of increased lawlessness. People are afraid to venture outside of their homes for fear of attack and there are certain parts of American cities that no one would enter after dark, not to mention the border towns where the Cartels have taken over. Just in the past few weeks a young pastor that attended a conference that I was at was dropped off to catch the bus in Laredo and was never heard of again.
As I was writing this message this morning the Lord showed me a map of America in my mind and coming across its borders were millions of ants or termites and they were devouring everything. I believe the immigration problem is judgment on America because of the way illegal immigrants have been treated in this country and they will completely overrun the welfare, health care and school systems of this land.
The prophet Joel speaks of locusts devouring the land because of Israel's backslidden condition and the army that He is sending against His own people to destroy the land. In actuality His army is the powers of darkness sent against a complacent people that have sunk beneath the waves of apostasy.
The only remedy for our plight here in this country is to get back to God's word and restore the true prophetic utterance that has been lost in the past twenty five years, replaced by entertainment and showmanship it has lulled the body of Christ to sleep and many have fallen away from the true faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. May God have mercy on us all!
I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and caused My people to hear My words, then they would have turned them from their evil way and from the evil of their doings. Jeremiah 23:21,22
