Judgement This World Does Not Understand

In the title you read judgement the world does not understand but my focus starts on America, then fans out to the rest of the western world, then includes everyone else.

The Lord has increased the frequency of communication with me regarding these messages I should write about.  Here is today's message communicating in my words what I believe He tried to get across to me:

Regarding the 'immigration problem' across the entire western world.  The United States, Britain, Germany, France etc have been overrun with immigrants.  The people of these countries have correctly identified this as a major problem.  What is happening is the immigrants are arriving by the thousands in the western developed countries and draining their economies, eroding the standards of living, being treated better than the legal citizens etc etc.

So, did you ever wonder where this problem came from?  It is not new, and it is not the fault of the corrupt politicians of the west, it is the hand of God in judgement.  We spend years wrestling and fretting over the problem that the Lord lays on these countries with a one sentence judgement:

Deut 28:43The stranger that is within you shall get up above you very high; and you shall come down very low.

If you care to read Deuteronomy 28 you will see the blessing that fall on a nation that honors the Lord through obedience, then you will see the judgements that fall on a nation that rejects the Lord.  The entire western world has rejected the Lord so what is happening to all of our countries is contained in verses 15-68 of Deuteronomy 28.

Yes, I know that many if not most Christians in the west will say "but brother D, we are not under the law!" or "we are not Israel" or "we have Jesus now, we are under the blood!"  These are all excuses that the masses will sing to each other straight to the grave.  It boils down to obedience, period.  Did the obedience requirement go out with the old testament?  Absolutely not:

2 Thessalonians 1:8 He will punish those who do not know God and ... He will punish those who do not know God and do  not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.

 John 14:23 Jesus replied, "Anyone who loves me will obey my ...
... Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and take up residence with him. ...

Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. ... Anyone who doesn't love
me will not obey me.

The unfortunate part of human nature is that history repeats because human nature does not change.  So, back to Deuteronomy 28, there is an entire list of judgements on a nation that rejects the Lord and if you go down the list the United States for example is in the process of checking off receipt of every judgement on the list.  In spite of this, people will still deny it is the hand of the Lord.

If people want solutions they first have to identify the problem.  So back to the example we started with, the western world does not have an immigration problem.  The politicians of the west are doing exactly what the Lord has instructed them to do:  Flood the west with immigrants and lift the immigrant up while putting the citizen down.  This is judgement:

Deut 28:43The stranger that is within you shall get up above you very high; and you shall come down very low.

The strangers within our borders get welfare checks and free housing, free medical care etc while the rest of us work to pay for it.  Do not blame the politicians, do not blame the immigrant, we have ourselves to blame for this:

15But it shall come to pass, if you will not listen to the voice of the LORD your God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command you this day; that all these curses shall come on you, and overtake you:

Now, the curses are upon this world and in the process of overtaking it and destroying it and yet most people act as if something strange is happening.

If you read the full list of the curses the worst is yet to come.  The Christians of this world love to identify with Israel when it comes to sharing the Lord's blessings but when it comes to judgement and punishment for disobedience it becomes all their problem not ours.  Unfortunately the Lord does not see it that way and you do not have to take my word for any of this.

Write down the list of curses in Deuteronomy 28 then take a look at the country you live in and start checking them off.  Coincidence?

As I stated at the beginning this is the communication the Lord had me pass on but it certainly does not end all on a sour note.

Part 1 of the message is this world has vexing problems it cannot get itself out of and these problems are judgements thats why they cant find worldly solutions to them.

Part 2 is, these judgements are for the world not for those who are in Christ.

Isaiah 3:8For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of his glory.
9The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.
10Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

11Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

Or, we can take the example of Noah.  The entire world around him was destroyed but he and his family were spared.  Same thing with Lot and his family.  The examples are there for those with eyes to see.  The Lord specifically gave us the examples of Noah and Lot so we would know what to expect:

2 Peter 2:4For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
The Godly will Be Delivered
7And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) 9The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

And oh by the way that word temptations there in verse 9 is actually:

from temptation,πειρασμοῦpeirasmou3986an experiment, a trial, temptationfrom peirazó

the same word that is used here in Revelation 3:10

10Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come on all the world, to try them that dwell on the earth.

I have no summary statement for all this besides the Lord gave it to me to write here.  This world is in trouble and we should try to snatch anyone from the fire that we can.  We are not and never were destined for this fire I do not care what any man or woman says to the contrary, what does the Word say?  The Lord knows how to deliver the righteous and that is not only spiritual deliverance but also physical deliverance as was proven through Noah and Lot given as examples by the Lord.

This world is in for some real trouble.  Who knows how much of it we will be around to see.  When this world is punched in the gut and doubles over in pain, remember what the Lords Words to the righteous are.  Some how, some way deliverance is in store for us.  It was for Noah, it was for Lot, Peter and Paul wrote about it in the New Testament as examples and a reference for us right now today.

10Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

grace and peace
