The Day of the Lord will Come as Destruction from the Almighty
Wail , for the day of the Lord is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. Therefore all hands will be limp, and every man's heart will melt, and they will be afraid. Pangs and sorrows will take hold of them; they will be in pain as a woman in childbirth; they will be amazed at one another; their faces will be like flames. Isaiah 13 : 6-8
Last week in my ministry update I mentioned what Jesus described to His disciples as birth pangs, signs of His eminent return that would precede His coming. This week God has brought deep conviction to me that we are approaching the final hour and warning people to flee the wrath to come by repenting and surrendering their lives to God is of the utmost importance.
Usually people don't like to think of dying until that final hour is upon them and in many cases its to late to get right with God. America is in the midst of the judgment of God and if you don't choose to believe that take a long look at whats happening. We began to experience the slow and silent eating away of the moral fabric of our society at the end of World War II. At that time judgment was in the form of a moth destroying our country from the inside out.
Then in the Sixties sex, drugs and rock and roll stole the hearts of our youth and turned them against their parents and ultimately against God so that an entire generation was lost spiritually. God's mighty name was slowly taken out of schools and government and the murder of unborn babies was legalized by the Supreme Court. To date over fifty million babies have been murdered ,legally sanctioned by the government and we dare to think that God will hide His eyes from this travesty of justice. I have never heard a mother refer to the un-born baby in her womb as a fetus, they never say my fetus just kicked or my fetus moved in my belly. My God ,have mercy on us.
Their children also will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be plundered and there wives ravished. Isaiah 13 : 16
Unborn babies literally torn to pieces by money hungry murderers puncturing their little skulls and extracting their brains. This kind of description would normally be found in a Stephen King novel , not in the land of the free and home of the brave. America has become more vile than Sodom and Gomorrah and if God does not judge us He will have to apologize to them. Don't misunderstand me, the whole world is experiencing God's wrath, the thing that bothers me is that we ought to know better and to whom much is given much is required.
In 1954 the evangelist A.A. Allen was shown a vision of America as he was standing on the Empire State building looking through a telescope. He said he could see America like a map rolled out on a table, from the East coast to the West coast. The Statue of Liberty was standing in the water and the hand of God tore off the torch in her hand and replaced it with a cup in which she was made to drink. Protruding from the cup was a gleaming sword that seamed to threaten the whole world. As the statue drank the cup she began to stagger as if drunk but remained upright for a time. Then from the West he saw darkness start to form over Alaska like a skeleton reaching out across America. Out of the skeleton's mouth and nostrils came great puffs of white smoke resembling that which comes from cigarettes, as the smoke reached the Statue she breathed in and then began to cough violently as if she would cough out her lungs.
The smoke then began to spread to every city bringing death everywhere including the great Statue, now face down in the water. The waves slowly washing over her lifeless form and the poisonous white vapor continuing to bring death across America. What does all this mean to us? Could the smoke represent the feared Asian flu or some other form of chemical or biological warfare, I don't know. One thing I do know is that we are approaching the end of time and the birth pangs that Jesus talked about have now turned into contractions.
The last two gigantic earthquakes that rocked Indonesia and Pakistan literally moved the earth out of its place so that the Global Positioning System that locates a certain place on the map had to be changed at the point where the earthquakes hit. I believe this is what is the beginning of contractions and there is about to be a birthing take place in the world. We must look at our spiritual condition and where our heart is before God before we run out of time.
In the Old Testament when God's people would turn away from Him and worship other gods, He would send their enemies against them to punish them for their disobedience. Tell me , who flew those jets into the Trade Center? Could it have been the same bunch as before, the Arab nations, Philistines, Amalekites and so on? 911 was just a warning to bring America to her knees and make her see her sin and repent, but she only got patriotic and said God bless America. George Bush can't save us , only Jesus can forgive us and wash us from our sin and rebellion that we have all walked in.
Convince me its not so, tell me its not judgment and then explain why in the last five years we have experienced so much pain and suffering, hurricanes, floods, cancer, disease of all kinds, terror, murder, drug and alcohol addiction not to mention the economy being totally wiped out. Now we are threatened with a bird flu pandemic that could conceivably wipe out a third of the world population and we just say, whats for dinner honey ,anything on the news?
We can just say I'm over-reacting or maybe I've lost it completely, but you cannot ignore the signs of the times and what is happening before your very eyes. If I'm wrong then PRAISE GOD! But if I'm right and I believe I am, then we are headed for certain disaster, May God help us. Now is the time to search your heart and get right with God and everyone else before its to late, if your not sure about your salvation, then repent of your sins and ask God to forgive you and wash you in His blood and save you from an eternity in hell. He loves you and does not want you to perish in the flames of hell. Give Him your life, don't wait until its to late.
I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a mortal more rare than gold, a man more than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of her place in the wrath of the Lord of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger. Isaiah 13 : 11 - 13
