How Could This Happen?

Europe is being invaded, looted, raped and pillaged right before our eyes.  Churches are removing crosses, pews and alters to facilitate Islamic worship and Islamic refugees.  What is happening in Europe?  This is invasion and this is war, the population of Europe just has not woken up to the fact just yet.  What happens in war?  You have invaders and the invaded.  What happens to the invaded?  They are looted, their women are raped and their land is pillaged.

Again, how could this happen?  The Western world has rejected the God of peace.  They have removed Him from every last centimeter of public space, from their schools, their universities, their businesses, their courts, from everywhere.  What happens when the God of peace get kicked out?  You get war, rape, looting, pillage.  Don't take my word for it.  What has the Lord God said?

Rev 6: 3When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword.

Isaiah 57:21 "There is no peace," says my God, "for the wicked."

 Isaiah 13:9See, the day of the Lord is coming
—a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger—
to make the land desolate
and destroy the sinners within it.
10The stars of heaven and their constellations
will not show their light.
The rising sun will be darkened
and the moon will not give its light.
11I will punish the world for its evil,
the wicked for their sins.
I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty
and will humble the pride of the ruthless.
12I will make people scarcer than pure gold,
more rare than the gold of Ophir.
13Therefore I will make the heavens tremble;
and the earth will shake from its place
at the wrath of the Lord Almighty,
in the day of his burning anger.
14Like a hunted gazelle,
like sheep without a shepherd,
they will all return to their own people,
they will flee to their native land.
15Whoever is captured will be thrust through;
all who are caught will fall by the sword.
16Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes;
their houses will be looted and their wives violated.

How many of these people ask "how could this happen to me, I'm a "good person?""  Most if not all of these people would outright reject the idea that they are wicked, but what does the Lord say?  What is wicked?  Wicked is unbelief, wicked is turning away from the living God:

Hebrews 3:12  See, brethren, lest there be in any one of you a wicked heart
of unbelief, in turning away from the living God.

As all this happens to Europe, what is happening in America?  Nothing, apathy.  Americans don't think it could happen to them.  Really?  What has the Lord said?

Jeremiah 51:9“ ‘We would have healed Babylon,
but she cannot be healed;
let us leave her and each go to our own land,
for her judgment reaches to the skies,
it rises as high as the heavens.’
10“ ‘The Lord has vindicated us;
come, let us tell in Zion
what the Lord our God has done.’
11“Sharpen the arrows,
take up the shields!
The Lord has stirred up the kings of the Medes,
because his purpose is to destroy Babylon.
The Lord will take vengeance,
vengeance for his temple.
12Lift up a banner against the walls of Babylon!
Reinforce the guard,
station the watchmen,
prepare an ambush!
The Lord will carry out his purpose,
his decree against the people of Babylon.
13You who live by many waters
and are rich in treasures,
your end has come,
the time for you to be destroyed.
14The Lord Almighty has sworn by himself:
I will surely fill you with troops, as with a swarm of locusts,
and they will shout in triumph over you.

A nation will not wallow in luxury while thumbing its nose at the Lord without consequence.  A nation will not long live in peace while exporting war, pornography and every other kind of filth and degradation to every corner of the earth.  Wickedness and complacency are a deadly combination.

We have come to the end of days.  Thats right, we are here.  Don't believe it?  Go book a ticked to Germany and ask the locals how things are going in their country these days?  If thats not enough evidence try Sweden, Finland, Norway, Italy, Greece, Austria, Spain, France or any of the other European countries that are in the process of being overrun and destroyed.

This is not a politician problem, this is not a government problem, this is a wickedness, a rebellion, a turning away from the living God problem that the peoples of the west have brought upon themselves.  I am not pointing a finger, I am stating a fact.  The correct response to this current calamity would be sackcloth and ashes, prayer and repentance in the West.  If there was or is any hope to turn the tide of what is happening it will happen one way and one way alone: 

sackcloth and ashes, prayer and repentance, PERIOD.

Fighting or arguing with the police, the army, the government will do zero good.  Why?  They are not the problem, our God sent this invasion not the politicians.  Read your history, what happened to Israel over and over again when she rebelled?  Why is the west being invaded?  2 reasons: 1.  These are formerly Christian countries that have turned their backs on the Lord. 2. judgement begins with the house of God:

1 Peter 4:17 For it is time for judgment to begin with God's household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?

Here is some warning with encouragement from the Word of the Lord.  Israel rebelled and was invaded by Babylon.  Things did not go so well for Israel's politicians (or their families) but Jeremiah fared better:

Jeremiah 39:1In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon marched against Jerusalem with his whole army and laid siege to it. 2And on the ninth day of the fourth month of Zedekiah’s eleventh year, the city wall was broken through. 3Then all the officials of the king of Babylon came and took seats in the Middle Gate: Nergal-Sharezer of Samgar, Nebo-Sarsekim a chief officer, Nergal-Sharezer a high official and all the other officials of the king of Babylon. 4When Zedekiah king of Judah and all the soldiers saw them, they fled; they left the city at night by way of the king’s garden, through the gate between the two walls, and headed toward the Arabah.a
5But the Babylonianb army pursued them and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho. They captured him and took him to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon at Riblah in the land of Hamath, where he pronounced sentence on him. 6There at Riblah the king of Babylon slaughtered the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes and also killed all the nobles of Judah. 7Then he put out Zedekiah’s eyes and bound him with bronze shackles to take him to Babylon.
8The Babyloniansc set fire to the royal palace and the houses of the people and broke down the walls of Jerusalem. 9Nebuzaradan commander of the imperial guard carried into exile to Babylon the people who remained in the city, along with those who had gone over to him, and the rest of the people. 10But Nebuzaradan the commander of the guard left behind in the land of Judah some of the poor people, who owned nothing; and at that time he gave them vineyards and fields.
11Now Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had given these orders about Jeremiah through Nebuzaradan commander of the imperial guard: 12“Take him and look after him; don’t harm him but do for him whatever he asks.” 13So Nebuzaradan the commander of the guard, Nebushazban a chief officer, Nergal-Sharezer a high official and all the other officers of the king of Babylon 14sent and had Jeremiah taken out of the courtyard of the guard. They turned him over to Gedaliah son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, to take him back to his home. So he remained among his own people.
15While Jeremiah had been confined in the courtyard of the guard, the word of the Lord came to him: 16“Go and tell Ebed-Melek the Cushite, ‘This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: I am about to fulfill my words against this city—words concerning disaster, not prosperity. At that time they will be fulfilled before your eyes. 17But I will rescue you on that day, declares the Lord; you will not be given into the hands of those you fear. 18I will save you; you will not fall by the sword but will escape with your life, because you trust in me, declares the Lord.’ ”

What we are seeing happen to Europe is Biblical in every sense of the Word.  America be warned.
Europe was the "mother" to America, America is the "daughter."  One could say Europe gave America birth:

Isaiah 47:

1“Go down, sit in the dust,
Virgin Daughter Babylon;
sit on the ground without a throne,
queen city of the Babylonians.a
No more will you be called
tender or delicate.
2Take millstones and grind flour;
take off your veil.
Lift up your skirts, bare your legs,
and wade through the streams.
3Your nakedness will be exposed
and your shame uncovered.
I will take vengeance;
I will spare no one.”

Like mother, like daughter....

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ
