That we don’t see the dispensations (increments) of God’s interaction with man is not surprising.
Modern men cannot recognize the increments by which their own demise is fed to them by the enemy. Asking someone to sit down and consider how God has taken us all to class on our history, and graduated us into the next state of revelation, would be a hard sell.
To encapsulate, God’s progressions are those of one who loves mankind and seeks both an initial introduction and an ongoing relationship with his creation – but man is not always willing.
After initial introductions matters did not go well. Sometimes referred to as the “age of conscience,” God allowed men to seek him and right things based of their own conscience – that failed miserably. To wit:
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. — Gen 6: 5-6
After that, God re-introduced himself through the law (Mosaic) and later through grace (Jesus dying for the sins of the world) But man decided in the last days that God had nothing to do with creation and the stars were the next stop in man’s future, not death and judgment. While this is the short version it ends right back where it started, with the failure of man’s conscience.
Speaking of the state of conscience that will be pervasive throughout the modern world in the very last days, Apostle Paul penned this prophetic picture of our repeat performance.
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. — Rom 1: 21
While Barack Obama declared that the book of Romans was obscure – nothing of today’s decline, as Paul predicted remains hidden or obscure. The nation and the world are sinking into a moral morass unparalleled in human history.
We know that Mr. Obama thinks he is doing a great job and the rest of the world seems to be putting all their little ducks in a row behind him, which only proves the blindness of the last day’s crowd – another state of man that emerges in the end times that Paul also amply addressed.
I often wondered why in my own calling and message I was urged to speak only to the American people. It is clearer now because I see what others have long since known – the way America goes is generally the way the world goes. If I speak to America, I have spoken to the world.
How is our national conscience faring these days?
We have had well over 40 years’ worth of pulling tiny human beings from the womb and throwing them in waste receptacles.
We have followed the ruler of darkness through his incrementally introduced progressions into sins of the flesh and now we are primed and ready to let men marry men, and women marry women. How proud we must all be!
We are wobbly and unsure about our support of Israel and her right to possess every inch of her God given nation. Palestine, having never been a country, a nation or even a recognized colony in the earth has not stopped us from ignoring historical facts. It’s the ‘in’ thing and Isis is here to prove it.
Without laboring the point to death – our conscience failed us at the start and it is also failing us as we approach the finish line.
We are a nation of Noah-ites unable to see the outcome or destination as we party and frolic together down the happy road to perdition.
America’s last state is not some territory that will give us a fifty first star on our flag, but is a state that only can be described as one of nearly full reprobation. Read it carefully because it is us:
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. — Mt 12: 43-45
Long ago I began to warn that the U.S. would begin to pervert and disregard the original intent and the literal aspects of her own Constitution. Following that, attacks would be leveled against the teachings of the Bible and those who represent those teachings. Along with these developments will follow disregard for long standing traditions and practices that collectively gave the nation its sense of unity.
Forget blood red moon prophecies and the errors of choosing the date of Christ’s return, these warnings are today and their fulfillment is today.
A nation that is considering giving sodomite Dan Savage his own TV series clearly is not listening to its prophets, preachers and moralists. Although the U.S. may tire of being “judged” it is only another excursion into deep error that keeps us from seeing an important and immutable point.
The point is that God never sends anyone to “judge.” He does, however, send many to “warn” expressly so the nation will not have to be judged!
How is that going America?
Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts… — 1 Cor 4: 5
