Dependence on the Lord

Here we are, halfway through the blood moon cycle and the two things that really stick out are 1.  Ebola and 2. Turmoil in the financial markets.

Who knows what is going to happen with ebola.  As things stand there have only been a handful of cases in the United States, but the way the hospitals and the government are handling this thing leaves the gate wide open for pandemic.

I know a local nurse who works one of the busiest ERs in the state and she says her hospital is doing nothing, zero to address the possibility of ebola showing up at their door.  No training, no equipment, no planning, they are doing zero.  What they are doing is acting like it is somebody else's problem, somewhere else and it will never show up at their doors.

Why mention this?  It is part of a larger problem the world has right now, called shortsightedness.  What this world wants, and what they desperately cling to is their business as usual routine.  Anything external that does not fit with what they want to see in the world is mentally blocked out.  "Just act like its not there and it will go away" has been the mentality for a very long time.  Does the Lord address this?

Matt 24:36‘And concerning that day and the hour no one hath known — not even the messengers of the heavens — except my Father only; 37and as the days of Noah — so shall be also the presence of the Son of Man; 38for as they were, in the days before the flood, eating, and drinking, marrying, and giving in marriage, till the day Noah entered into the ark, 39and they did not know till the flood came and took all away; so shall be also the presence of the Son of Man. 40Then two men shall be in the field, the one is received, and the one is left; 41two women shall be grinding in the mill, one is received, and one is left.

What do we see here? ^^  Business as usual right up through and including Noah and family walking into the ark.

Where else do we see this?

Rev 920and the rest of men, who were not killed in these plagues, neither did reform from the works of their hands, that they may not bow before the demons, and idols, those of gold, and those of silver, and those of brass, and those of stone, and those of wood, that are neither able to see, nor to hear, nor to walk, 21yea they did not reform from their murders, nor from their sorceries, nor from their whoredoms, nor from their thefts.

This ^^ is in Rev 9 at a point where the earth and those living on it have been ravaged.  Mass death, mass plague, mass pestilence, mass natural disaster all around the people and yet, what do they do?  Back to business as usual "neither did reform from the works of their hands."

So what?  As things go from bad to worse what can the righteous do?  Depend on and walk closely with their God.  That's it.  What has the Lord said?

Isaiah 3:10Say you to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their deeds.
11Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be done to him.

Tell the righteous it shall be well with them....

Bottom line here is live or die, prosper or suffer, rejoice or lament we walk with our God.  He is our shield, He is our provision, He is our protection, He is our deliverer, He is our joy and happiness and strength and treasure on this earth and in heaven.

What have we been called to?  What would the Lord have us do?  Watch and pray always, which means a continual focus on Him....

Luke 21:36Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

 For this writer, this scripture ^^ takes on a meaning that goes far beyond the rapture debate.  What does this Word call us to do?  Watch and pray...daily, always.  Ultimately this will come down to a daily walk with the Lord.  There is an escape coming, but what day?  Nobody knows and it is not worth arguing over.  Whats the point of all this effort the Lord has put into telling us things like this:

Matt 24:44Therefore be you also ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of man comes.

Forget all the bickering and petty debating about "when."  Why?  The point the Lord is making to us all is DAILY, that means right now today readiness for Him is what He is looking for.  Thats right, if you are ready daily you will not be caught unprepared on "that day" whatever and whenever that day is.  Make sense?  Daily readiness, there is no argument whatsoever against it that holds any merit.  Daily readiness is what we have been called to, daily readiness is what we must lay hold of.

Daily readiness has no need for debate.  If we are walking and talking and at peace with our Lord, daily, how exactly will we miss what He has for us?  The Spirit leads us in all things, will He omit something important if we are walking with Him every day?  I think not.

 This greatly simplifies our doctrine and brings more clarity and less confusion.  Do what the Lord said to do, and what is that?  Be watching and ready always.  If you are walking with the Lord daily, will you be watching and ready always?  Yes.  We walk with Him and talk with Him and His Spirit leads us into all truth.

John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:

Isa 30:21 Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it."

How can we go wrong if we do what we were told to do?

grace and peace

Ebola, Blood Moons, Rosh Hashanah

In this video we see that even the CDC full protective measures are not slowing ebola down.  Watch at the 11:05 mark or so where this doctor admits that in spite of wearing full protection the health care worker still caught the virus

So, we saw the first case of ebola in America seeking care at a Dallas hospital on Rosh Hashanah (9/26) and now that the second blood moon has signaled, both the Dow Jones and the S&P 500 are staring back at us with two black eyes.

What does this tell us?  What are the chances that these major turning points in world history and judgments hinge on the Lord's days and signs?  The world can ignore the signs but they cannot ignore the consequences of the signs.  The Lord is not going away, there are two blood moons and an Adar 29 full solar eclipse yet to join in this destructive dance.

The people of this world have become very good at removing every sign of the Lord in the world (for example taking prayer out of schools, removing ten commandments from courthouses, etc).  Lets see if they can remove blood moons from the sky?  Can they remove ebola from cities?  So far they have been grossly unsuccessful.  That is what happens when men declare war on God, men lose....badly.

Mankind cares most about their safety and security, nothing else seems to get their attention.  What do ebola and the collapsing of the stock market have in common?  They both directly attack people's most basic need:  that of safety and security.  Why?  The Lord will get this world's attention, one way or another.  What is the book of Revelation about?  Revealing........revealing what?  The Lord Jesus Christ.  This world does not want Him, so they make war with God.  How ridiculously foolish.

Rev 6:7When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

Am I saying we are seeing Revelation 6? No, but thats the really really bad news.  We aren't even to Revelation 6 yet and already we are seeing unstoppable plagues show up on the earth.  What will the final death toll be for this ebola outbreak?

What's the point?

Those who dismissed the blood moons as irrelevant have been proven to be quite shortsighted.  The Lord will be glorified.  He will be glorified in and through His people (the true Church) and through the destruction of the wicked.  Everything and everyone will play a part in the glorification of our Lord.  Kicking and screaming and resisting to the point of death, the wicked will bring glory to our God through their own destruction.  Not that our Lord wanted their destruction,

1 Tim 2:1I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth

but they chose an unwise path that path will be clearly displayed for all mankind to be the path of fools.

What's the good news in all this bad news?  Our Lord is being glorified, one way or another.  Mankind is facing one unwinnable battle after another for a reason, to direct their attention to God Almighty.

There is more good news for those of us who believe.  The Lord has made us promises, like this one:

Ps 913Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

Either we will stand in our faith or we will not stand at all:
... If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.'"

Our faith has always been a matter of life and death, most people just do not realize it.  Now events are going way beyond "going to church" then wiping our hands of the Lord for the next 6 days until its time to be spiritually "serviced" again.  Real faith, and real belief are going to be tested as we lead into the days of Revelation.

At the beginning of 2014, I asked the Lord what He would have me do this year.  His reply?  1. Be a man who walks with God.  2. Do whatever good your hands find to do.  How hard is that?  Is the Lord asking too much from us?


The Lord knows the beginning from the end and everything in between.  It is becoming apparent to this nobody who writes to you that the purpose of the past miracles in this nobody's life were to build faith for the miracles needed during the days of destruction we are witnessing all around us.  The testimony this nobody has offered to you is:  The Lord's miracle working power is alive and well this very day.  This writer writes to you today as a testimony, as one who has been there and seen the Lord's power work.  Yes that power worked for me but it serves as a testimony to YOU.

What has the Lord been telling us for thousands of years?

Heb 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2This is what the ancients were commended for.
3By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
4By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.
5By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.”a For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. 6And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
7By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.
8By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 9By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. 10For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. 11And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because sheb considered him faithful who had made the promise. 12And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.

Eph 2For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--

Luke 18:8
... However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"

One would think after reading this ^^, faith might be important...

Through faith we are saved, and by lack of faith this world will be destroyed.

As this world circles the drain of destruction, let us remember our simple faith in a loving God who never wanted any of this.  What He wants is for all men to be saved, but men have chosen differently.

Today I offer you my testimony, the Lord can be trusted and everything He has said is true.  It is my testimony and your testimony and the testimony of all who believe combined with the blood of the Lamb that will overcome the enemy:

Rev 12  10Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
“Now have come the salvation and the power
and the kingdom of our God,
and the authority of his Messiah.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
who accuses them before our God day and night,
has been hurled down.
11They triumphed over him
by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
as to shrink from death.
12Therefore rejoice, you heavens
and you who dwell in them!

We are establishing a testimony every day we live by faith and walk with our God.  Our walk with our God is by faith and to the death.  We will live on the promises which we inherit by faith and patience.  We will bet our lives on these promises.  Either we will stand on our faith or we will not stand at all....

2015 Will Be Special

2015 will be special.  According to the Lord's calendar, 2015 is already here.  Rosh Hashanah this year went from sundown 9/24 through sundown 9/26 and guess what showed up on new years day?

America's first uncontained, unrestrained and unrecognized ebola patient:

On Sept. 26, he sought treatment at the hospital after becoming ill but was sent back to the northeast Dallas apartment complex where he was staying with a prescription for antibiotics. Duncan's sister, Mai Wureh, said he notified health-care workers that he was visiting from Liberia when they asked for his Social Security number and he told them he didn't have one.

And we have not even reached the second blood moon yet.  This year we have blood moon two on 10/8/14, A sackcloth sun on Adar 29-March 20, 2015 and Passover April 4, 2015.  Most people like to keep their head buried in the sand, but ask the people in Dallas, Texas if things just got real for them or not.

Rev 6:7When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

I understand that health officials in the United States have downplayed the possibility of ebola actually spreading in the U.S. along with their denial that it would even reach the U.S.  Well, they were wrong about ebola reaching the U.S. and we are about to see if it spreads in the U.S.  What is ebola?  It is a plague.  Really?  What do plagues do?  Infect and kill lots of people.  What does ebola do?  Infect and kill lots of people.  Simplistic?  Yes.  Accurate?  Yes.

So we have plague on Americas shores now, so what?  People need to repent and seek the Lord's face.  Read your Bibles and see that most people in most places did not repent and were destroyed.  The few times people did repent, the Lord did relent.

Bottom line?  Everything, and I mean everything that could go wrong or be headed in the wrong direction is going wrong and headed in the wrong direction for the group of people living on planet earth right now.  What this means is, without the Lord's provision and protection we are all in alot of trouble and there is no other way of escaping this trouble.

I know the ebola plague is deadly and serious, but I have promises:

Ps 914He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

Yes, I will take precautions like anyone else would but I know where my real protection comes from.  Here we have an example of real pestilence that stalks in the darkness and real plague that destroys at midday: ebola.  Anyone who doubts this can ask around in Africa these days about how many are currently dead and dieing.

Either the promises are real or they are not.  Either the provision and protection of our Lord is real or it is not.  This takes the discussion of what we believe light years away from the snake oil salesmen preachers who have never uttered the word "repent" to a life and death belief and faith that will decide what happens to us.

We either stand on our faith or we will not stand at all.  This is the same message you have been reading from this nobody for years, just in a different package.  The Lord delivers, the Lord provides.  This nobody has seen multiple miracles for me and my family over the years.  Nobody can erase that testimony.  I have lived in the Lord's power and it is real.  This person who writes to you is a nobody, so if these miracles happened for him what will the Lord do for you?  There are no special persons with the Lord, what He does respect is faith and His Word.

The sources I have indicate that we have about 1 year left of stock market boom, then that is going in the tank too, right around the time of the last blood moon on tabernacles 9/28/15.  That will get most people's attention as the wallet is the only thing many people focus on.  The blood moons are here right now and screaming for our attention.  That attention should be directed to the Creator, Lord God Almighty.

Eventually He will get everybody's attention...everybody:

Rev 6:15Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. 16They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide usf from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17For the great day of theirg wrath has come, and who can withstand it?”

Who is this message for?  One from a city, a handful from a region.  The few, the remnant who will listen.

Jer 3:14 "Return, faithless people," declares the LORD, "for I am your husband. I will choose you--one from a town and two from a clan--and bring you to Zion.

Feast Of Trumpets 2014-No Rapture

Surprised?  Not really right?  There is a very probability on any given day or month or year that the Lord is coming down to the clouds to call us up. day it will happen.  Time is testing all of us.  How many will not make it because they failed the test of time?  What do you mean fail the test of time brother D, what do you mean not make it?  What does the Word say?

Rev 3.10Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

There are many who turn back to the world out of boredom or impatience.  Again, what does the Word say?

Matt Be Ready
44Therefore be you also ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of man comes.
45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord has made ruler over his household, to give them food at the proper time?
46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he comes shall find so doing.
47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48But if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delays his coming;
49And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards;
50The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looks not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Yes, the Lord delays His coming but nobody guaranteed any of us that our heart continues to beat tomorrow.  The Lord could call any of us home at any time.  That means our readiness must be all the time, not on special days or weeks or months, always.  Always?  Yes, always....

Luke 21:36Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

In about a week and a half the 8th of October and the second blood moon will be upon us.  The first bloon moons (spring) are the yellow lights (caution), the fall blood moons are red lights (stop, warning).  Watch and see what happens after this second blood moon.  This world is in for a punch to the gut that will buckle it over onto its knees.

How do we avoid all of these things coming upon the entire world?  Take shelter in Christ.  No, this is not just a figure of speech.  Jesus Christ and the Spirit of the Living God is real protection, real shelter, a real fortress.  The protection and shelter are REAL.

In the shelter of your presence you hide them from all human intrigues;
you keep them safe in your dwelling from accusing tongues.

I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 

Isa 25.1O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you, I will praise your name; for you have done wonderful things; your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
2For you have made of a city a heap; of a fortified city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.
3Therefore shall the strong people glorify you, the city of the terrible nations shall fear you.
4For you have been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, for the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.

And the examples in the Word go on and on.  This nobody who writes to you today can testify that His Word is true and can be trusted to the utmost.  If He says He is a shelter, He is a shelter.  If He says He is a refuge from the storm, He is a refuge from the storm.

This writer is proof in the flesh that the Lord God does not lie and His Word is true.  A storm is coming, trust Him...

Feast of Trumpets 2014

The Feast of Trumpets 2014 begins today at sundown and goes through Friday at sundown.

The Feast of Trumpets appears to me to be the most likely time for the rapture of the Church to occur. Is it likely to happen this year?  It is unlikely every year.  Is it possible this year? Yes, it is possible.

The Lord has made some promises that have to be kept.  Here is one of them:

Luke 21:34“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

There is a snare and a trap coming upon all those who live upon the face of the earth.  Sorry, this one is a no brainer for me.  People can argue it all they want to but it is settled in my mind, heart and spirit.  There is a trap AND there is an escape.  We are told clearly to be always on the watch and always praying for this escape.

This undeniable fact and command automatically and instantly condemns the post-tribulation and "pre-wrath" belief systems.  Why?  It is very simple.  Neither the post-trib, nor the "pre-wrath" believers are watching or praying for the escape always.  To do so would be an act of insanity on their part as their belief system tells them the escape cannot come always, and why should they pray for something they do not believe will happen?

There is a simple test that they all universally fail.  Ask them "are you watching and praying always for the escape from all?"  They will squirm and evade, and try to re-direct, and point you to 1000 page dissertations and do everything else in their power not to answer that simple question directly.  It is a yes or no question and their answer is "no".

Be always on the watch, thats what the Lord said.  For what?  The escape.  That is what the Holy Spirit said, not me, not any other man or woman in history, the Lord God said it.  That command is nonsense to both the "pre-wrath" and post-trib crowd because for them a,b,c,d,e,f,g have to happen first.  Why should they watch and pray always for the escape?

Could the escape take place over the next few days?  It is possible.  If you take the Word of the Lord seriously then pray with me that we all will be found worthy of this escape.  Watch and pray with me always meaning right now.

Things are quickly spiraling out of control in the world, and we have only seen the passing of 1 out of 4 blood moons.  Oct 8, 2014 is the next one.  If the spring blood moon brought such things as an ebola epidemic and ISIS and war in Ukraine etc, what happens after blood moon number 2?  The implications are quite sobering.

Let us be found watching and praying, right now today for the forgiveness of our sins and that we may be counted worthy of the escape promised in the Lord's Holy Word.  Nobody knows when the Lord is going to show up, but the Feast of Trumpets every year is about as close as it gets to pinning down a season for Him to call us up.

A Curse Upon The Land

A curse is upon the land:

5Thus says the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusts in man, and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart departs from the LORD.
6For he shall be like the shrub in the desert, and shall not see when good comes; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land which is not inhabited.
7Blessed is the man that trusts in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
8For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreads out its roots by the river, and shall not fear when the heat comes, but its leaf shall be green; and shall not be anxious in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

Do you think this curse is still in effect?  Look around and you tell me.  How many Christians tell you during (s)election season that you have to vote in order to make a difference?  They give you a hundred reasons why you have to vote for devil A over devil B because of 1, 2, 3 etc.  Where is their trust?  Where is their hope?  Where in the Word does it tell us to be part of the world systems and kingdoms in order to make a difference?  When did Jesus vote in the Roman system?  Where did Paul go to vote?

Whats the point?  People trusting in mankind leads to a curse.  Why?  Our trust and hope is to be in the Lord our God.  We are strangers and aliens here:

... Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from
fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul.

Many of us need miracle power.  We need constant miracles and prayers answered just to survive day to day.  Show me the miracles the world offers you?  I do not know of any.  What has hoping in this world gained anyone?  It has gained them a curse....

What did the Lord say?

7Blessed is the man that trusts in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.

We need prayers answered and we need miracles, we must trust and hope in our Lord alone.  He is our source, He is our provider, He is our shelter, He is our protector, He is our peace, He is everything and anything we need when we need it.  Apart from Him we have nothing

I say to the LORD, "You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing." .

He is our treasure in heaven and He is our treasure here on earth.  He Himself is all these things and apart from Him we have nothing.  So where should our trust and our hope be?

Why is this world spiraling around the drain of destruction?  Why are the systems of this world falling apart?  Why is there no peace?  Why are there lies and deceit everywhere we turn?

... There is no peace for the wicked," says my God. 

Men have turned to men for their salvation.  This is not a new story, it is one repeated time and again throughout history.  Each and every time has resulted in decay and destruction.

In a world like this, and with a view on history, what type of people should we be if we hope to escape such destruction?

1 Thess 5
4But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 5You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. 6So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. 7For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. 8But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 9For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 10He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.11Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

Putting on faith?  Yes, faith.  Faith in who or what?  Faith in the Lord our God whose presence and power answers every need for those of us who belong to His kingdom.  We are in this world but not of this world.

Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. 

This is a message of encouragement.  The curse on this world is obvious for those with eyes to see, but we are not of this world.  Let us put our full hope and trust in our Father, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit which are One, the only One who can deliver as the world implodes around us.

A Warning Of Coming Judgement

The people of America who call themselves Christians like to claim the God of Israel as their own as long as they can cast Him as a one dimensional God.  They love the God of love.  They love the God of mercy and they love the God of grace.  They reject the God of righteousness, justice, judgement and wrath.  Our God cannot and will not be placed in a one dimensional box by anyone.

What point are we driving at today?  The God of Israel who judged the children of Israel for their sins and iniquities and backslidings will also judge the Christians of America in the same way.  The people of America deceive themselves when they say "our God would never do that to us!"  But they fail to see that He is already doing it.  Because judgement has not fallen in full measure in one day they believe the lies the world tells them to explain away the evils befalling this people on every side.

What has the Lord said to His children before when they acted as the people of this world act?

To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.
Jer 6:11Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children in the street, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days.
12And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, says the LORD.
13For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them everyone is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest everyone deals falsely.
14They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people lightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
15Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I punish them they shall be cast down, says the LORD.
16Thus says the LORD, Stand you in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it, and you shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk in it.
17Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
18Therefore hear, you nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.

This is a land (America) that has outright rejected the counsel of the Lord, they have rejected it.  What do you mean brother, can't you see all the people 'going to church' every Sunday and mouthing the Word of the Lord spoon fed to them by their hired hand preachers?  Yes, I see it.  I see the preaching and teaching of a "love only god" and a "grace only god" and a "mercy only god."  The people choose what pleases them and disregard all the rest.

Jer 512They have lied about the LORD, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine:
13And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them.

Where is your proof brother?  Isn't this all just your opinion?

Fact: light drives out darkness every time without exception.

That ^^ is not my opinion, it is a fact and what we see encroaching on America, which has mega-churches on every corner of every city across the land, is darkness.  If the churches were full of light, darkness would have to flee, it has no choice.  Go turn on a light in a dark room and see how long it takes for the light to drive darkness out....but it is not happening in America or across the world.  Why?  Because what this world calls light is darkness...

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light
for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter

The Lord has given us the solution while He addresses the problem:

16Thus says the LORD, Stand you in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it, and you shall find rest for your souls. 

But the people reject His solution:

But they said, We will not walk in it.

The Lord has given us the solution.  If we are the problem, we are also the solution.  Individually, we are the solution.  The Lord does not need a mega-church full of people to accomplish anything on this earth.  He can work through one.

Jer 3"Return, faithless people," declares the LORD, "for I am your husband. I will choose you--one from a town and two from a clan--and bring you to Zion.

Today's Christianity likes to pretend they are exempt from anything that happened to the children of Israel.  "But we have Jesus," they say, and I thank God for Him but what did Jesus say?

6If a man abides not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

What does abide mean?

: to stay or live somewhere
: to remain or continue

Stay, live, remain, continue in the same place.  If once a person did good but now they do evil, did they abide in the same place?  No, they have moved from good to evil....

Why all the doom brother?  Can't you tell us something pleasant?  What has the Lord said?

Ecc 72It is better to go to a house of mourning
than to go to a house of feasting,
for death is the destiny of everyone;
the living should take this to heart.
3Frustration is better than laughter,
because a sad face is good for the heart.
4The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning,
but the heart of fools is in the house of pleasure.

Surely the Lord was correct when He told us what people would be like today:

2 Tim 3 :1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3Without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4Traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6For of this sort are they who creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with various lusts,
7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

When we see the evils coming upon the world that we see today, shouldn't we turn our hearts fully toward the Lord our God?  The reasoning and thinking like men is how the world got itself into this mess, yet people continue to seek the counsel of man to get out of this mess, isn't that abit insane?  What mankind needs is the counsel and power of God Almighty.  We are facing a spiritual onslaught that no man can stand up under without the power of Almighty God to hold them up.

The time to sound the alarm, for ourselves if nobody else, is today.
