"Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:" Amos 8:11
During the journeys of the Israelites through the plains of Moab; the Prophet Balaam, who practiced divination was known by King Balak, king of Moab. Balaam allowed King Balak to entice him with the King's treasures to curse the Israelites. Balaam would not speak a curse upon the Israelites, but it is said of him in 2 Peter 2:15, Balaam son of Beor, who loved the wages of wickedness. And so it is written in Numbers 31:16 of the moabites, “They were the ones who followed Balaam’s advice and enticed the Israelites to be unfaithful to the LORD in the Peor incident, so that a plague struck the LORD’s people.
As with Balaam, so too was it with many of the Pharisees and Sadducees, they loved the prestige and respect that the people would show them, they believed there was none more righteous and holy than themselves, and they all most likely believed that they would die the death of the righteous, yet they were unwilling to live the life of the righteous.
Today, we are probably the most materially blessed generation ever with technology to lighten our daily chores and also with entertainment to meet our desires. We have the capability to communicate with others across town or around the world in just seconds and the ability to fly to the most remote areas of this planet in several hours. We even have the very Word of God at our finger tips and most of us have computers to help us in searching through the Holy Scriptures and yet there are very few Christians that have read through the Bible.
Sadly, there are many wolfs in sheep clothing found in the pulpits within America today. With ignorance and a lack of understanding being so very prevalent they take advantage either through subterfuge or in a openly aggressive attempt to mislead the people; with the intent that they would refuse to speak against greed, sexual perversion, abortion, pride, and other sins for fear that it will offend someone. Not knowing the Scriptures, many in the congregations will accept these teachers.
Just as it might have been said about the Pharisees and Sadducees, so to it is with many in the pulpits today, they know what is right, they know the Scriptures, but they deceive themselves and choose to error over what the WORD of God instructs them to do, because they love the wages of unrighteousness even more.
Dark clouds are forming over America, for her iniquities have reached the heavens and her destruction has been made clear for God has given man His warnings of a coming Judgment. On the night of January 22, 1997 the Holy Spirit whispered to me saying, "I will repay America double for her iniquities."
Once an individual or a nation starts compromising on minor issues that traverse against God's WORD the door has been opened and the bigger issues will come rushing through. There is no doubt that this compromising on God's WORD is why we are now experiencing the destruction of our economy and the turmoil of an out of control government, which is seeking more and more power and control over it's citizens.
The evidence is overwhelmingly clear, there are dark days ahead. America's destruction will come from not only the insidious forces from within, but also from those who would want to harm Israel and any that should offer support.
If you fail to understand, nor see the forces of evil that are growing here within America and around the world then there is a great problem within your hardened heart. These forces of evil are amassing against the Israelites and all those who would support God's chosen people. This would include all godly Christians and it is a great shame that I must clarify this for there are many who claim the title of Christian who do not hold to, nor believe in the absolute truth of God's WORD. God's promises to the Jewish people have been made clear, "I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” In a world where deceit runs rampant, most also fail to understand, nor do they wish to understand God's promises to bless the Jewish people.
Does America worship false gods? Yes, many most definitely do, but false gods are not gods. Worshipping false gods made out of metal, stone, clay or anything else that has your devotion or respect is dangerous and destructive, not only for the individual but also for our nation, with the evidence that can easily be seen by those who have watched the rapid decline of the morals of the leaders and the citizens of this once God fearing nation.
Pres. Obama's Administration is turning a blind eye to the true nature of the terrorist threat we face and this action will lead to devastating consequences. Even as this administration refuses to acknowledge this reality they continue to appease the Islamic nations and their self serving agenda. These actions are bringing a curse upon America.
Will we as a nation continue to disavow ourselves from the one true Holy God and to embrace ignorance and evil or will we repent and turn from our sinful ways, embracing God's perfect plan and will for mankind?
