(The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, the Answer)
I cannot save and sanctify myself, I cannot atone for sin, I cannot redeem the world, I cannot make right what is wrong, pure what is impure, Holy what is unholy, That is all the sovereign and mighty work of God and it is already finished. Have faith in what Jesus Christ has already done. He and He alone has made the perfect atonement. Jesus purchased a pardon for the entirety of humanity. It is a free gift. One need only ask, seek and knock. Just reach out and claim the free gift of Jesus. God has specifically promised that if you will diligently seek Him with all your heart (spirit and will) that you shall find Him.
The situation in this nation, the only nation that claims to be “one nation under God. . .” is worse on every level than this watchman could ever have imagined just a few years ago. This watchman has been sounding the warnings of judgment for many years. Indeed, all the watchmen have faithfully been delivering warnings. Sadly, it does not seem that these warnings were heeded by any significant number of believers. If they had been, circumstances today would be much different than they are. Remember that the watchmen only deliver the warnings from God. The rest is up to the recipients - you, that is.
Anyone, that is not blind or drunk with excess of the worldly koolaid, who surveys the existing conditions in America cannot escape the conclusion that America teeters on the edge of complete collapse - on every level of society. Everywhere you turn the signs are evident. Even the managed news reveals the sad state of this once Godly nation. Corruption abounds on every level, economic, political and yes, even religious. It is like the days of the high priest Eli (who epitomized corruption at the top) when God raised up Samuel to replace him. In fact, the Bible is replete with history that mirrors the situation in America today. Jeremiah, Isaiah, Daniel and most of the prophets are clear on this point. We would do well to read these historical narratives again looking specifically for what conditions brought down the judgment of God. And, what brought His mercy. This watchman believes that without the mercy of God this nation is doomed.
The watchmen say, “the Russians (or pick one) are coming!” They point to the signs of the times, the beating of the war drums in the press, the demonizing of enemies the elite want to conquer (Iran, Syria, Russia, China), the attacks already carried out against American interests (Oklahoma City, 911, school shootings, etc.) and conclude that WWIII is imminent.
But the false prophets say, “peace and safety.” The American armed forces are the best, most technologically advanced military in the world. American has never been defeated. But do they speak the truth?
The watchmen say, “the economy is collapsing.” They point out that the dollar is done as a global currency, that the prices of most commodities are dropping at unprecedented levels (except just before war or depression), that more people are on government assistance than have jobs. They point out the government spin (lies) about the employment rates and statistics.
But the false prophets say, “peace and safety.” The stock market has not been better, personal portfolios are looking good and some people have even recovered from the last recession.
The watchmen say, “the nation is no longer strong.” The watchmen note the various violent attacks against this nation (see above), the invasion by an army of tens of thousands across our southern borders for years and note that neither our enemies or our neighbors respect or fear us anymore. The watchmen say this is what happened to Rome, Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, Egypt and all formerly great nations. The watchmen show the same pattern of internal corruption in these nations that now is seen in the United States. They reveal that even within the nation several of the states and other groups speak openly of secession and coups.
But the false prophets continue to cry, “peace and safety.”
The watchmen say, “most of the church is fast asleep and some are becoming more corrupt, more worldly and even blasphemous by the day.”
But the false prophets say, “peace and safety. After all, our god is so good and he knows we are but flesh so eat, drink and be merry in order to glorify our god. Let the world see how we are so prosperous and happy with our god.”
The corporate, visible, church has enlarged its borders but through compromise. The Truth lies in the streets and is trampled on by the paid, professional, organizers and church builders who only care about the financial bottom line. Where are the true shepherds who lovingly care for the sheep? Where is the righteous remnant? Are they underground as in the days of early Rome? Those that want to practice a pure religion, trusting entirely in God are treated as leprous outcasts. True believers that refuse to compromise have always been persecuted by the religious leaders willing to compromise with the world system for gain. Remember it was the high priests and the political, psuedo religious groups (Pharisees and Sadducees) that wanted Jesus dead. This has never changed.
This false church has convinced many that God is dead. Unfortunately, the True Church has been largely silent.
God says, “when they say peace and safety, then shall sudden destruction come upon them.”
Whom do you believe?
God lays the blame not at the feet of the wicked world leaders or of the leaders of the false, psuedo - church. God holds the remnant, the true Church, fully accountable for this state of affairs.
So where has the true Church been in all this? Thought you would never ask. The true Church laments the condition of this mighty nation and wonder what has gone wrong. However, we fold our hands, close our eyes, cross our fingers and simply hope things will get better. The church has been fast asleep while Satan has been rocking the cradle.
This watchman now gives the Church what may be the final warning. Return unto God while there is yet time. It is time to put away the pleasures of sin for a season, being caught up in the cares of this life, and being deceived by riches. It is time to BE the representatives of God that we were meant to be.
Only the true Church has direct access to God. Only God can remedy the mess in this nation. This pattern of problem and solution is throughout the entire Bible. Let us look only at what Jesus (our Lord and King) did while He walked the earth. His method of operation, His pattern of living, is abundantly clear. He did nothing on His own and put no confidence in the flesh including His own abilities or those of His disciples, or the religious leaders or Rome. A simple example of this is in John 17:11. Jesus identifies the problem and gives the solution. What is the solution? I come to thee [Holy Father]!
Why has no one believed our report? Could it be because we do not practice what we say we believe? Is it because they see no real faith in God demonstrated in our own lives? I pray not. Nevertheless, I say unto you all, the true Church, turn to God while it is yet day for soon the night comes. Wake up! Clearly see that all these ills befalling America are the judgment of God. Remember that God’s judgment always comes with mercy. Cry out to God in repentance and seek mercy for this nation (the very people you love). If the true Church will not cry out to Almighty God in this dark hour who will?
I urge you not to wait. Start today, right now, right where you are. Set aside some time everyday and intercede for America. God’s hand of love, mercy and grace is stretched out still.
TRUMPET MINISTRIES. THE WATCHMAN SPEAKS God Bless you all.
