[UPDATED with my thoughts]
From: JohnTheBaptistTv.com… (Andrew Strom)
THE CATASTROPHE – extract by David Wilkerson
Think of this:
* The expulsion of God from our society in the name of political correctness
* The whole world turning to secularism and materialism
* A church growing more worldly than the world itself
* The rise of violence and apathy
* The Bible no longer being accepted as God’s Word
* A day “when everything that can be shaken” is being shaken
* When thoughtful people everywhere have an intuition that
“somebody is tinkering with nature, something is happening that
cannot be explained away”
* When society continues its business without a single “God
pause,” without even a thought that God will not be mocked
When these things happen, we have come near or crossed a line
into a spiritual stupor that no amount of divine mercy can awaken.

Things are getting serious. The Third Great Awakening needs to happen. It’s our only hope. Christianity has been jacked into becoming this pro-war, pro-torture, disgusting thing that is the opposite of real Christianity! The evangelicals won’t even support Ron Paul because he’s a peacemaker. Huh? Didn’t Jesus say “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God?” And by the way, just like Ron Paul, I believe in self-defense, when it really is. It’s become so upside-down. And they never admit when they were wrong.
I actually believe that our military is being used to take out the countries and the leaders who would oppose the one-world government, prophesied in Revelation. The ‘church’ is actually helping Satan’s global government to happen. For the evidence, see my Real Reason for U.S. Wars = NWO! posts, latest posts first.
There were two main chances, and now they’re failing at perhaps the third, which will possibly be the last:
• 2004 — Evangelicals voted George W. Bush the second time, who they then fully knew was pro-torture and pro-war, who then bailed out Wall Street and even foreign banks with U.S. funds!
• 2008 — Evangelicals totally ignored the peacemaker, sound money candidiate, Ron Paul to vote for pro-war John McCain!
• 2012 — Evangelicals are willing to vote for any Republican but Ron Paul, because he won’t nuke Iran and help fund the Israeli killing machine!
The Bible says: “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord.” I saw them even sing this at a John Hagee pro-Israel rally (Hagee is loudly pro-war). But evangelicals have to do it their way. “I did it my way,” instead of the Holy Spirit’s way — which is repentance to actually do the greatest two commandments: “LOVE the Lord, your God, with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength — and your neighbor as yourself.”
Whatever happened to this widely know verse, 2 Chronicles 7:14?
“If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Instead, we’re turning to guns.
It’s common knowledge that Israel commits many inhumane atrocities towards their neighbors with U.S. military hardware and dollars, both overt and covert. I have documented many of them here [I have an Israelcategory]. But did you know: Israel, the highest rate of prostitution in the world (CNN) | One million visits made by clients every month to brothels in Israel (population 7 million) | “For this we yearned?” And see: Articles About Human Trafficking in Israel
Israel has a reverse-Christian motto: to remember and not forget, which also means to never forgive.
Evangelicals seem to be adopting this reverse-Christian motto in remember 9/11 — though 1 Cor. 13 says to not keep a record of wrongs. Jesus says to love our enemies — even if they really were responsible for 9/11, which is at the most only partially true — proven with my 9/11 posts).
The U.S. is now aiding and abetting Israel’s open sins and atrocities, and the evangelicals will only support candidates that will ensure this will continue and even escalate!
Is supporting Israel’s sins actually supporting Israel? Come on!
We’re just a dysfunctional family with the enablers supporting the abusers. And now we’re openly unrepentant abusers as well.
If we would actually focus on doing the greatest two commandments instead, then the Holy Spirit would give us the wisdom to deal with our enemies, who as Joel Skousen is pointing out are mainly to the west of us, while the globalists have us looking east.
We’re in a spiritual battle, and the only way to defeat the dark side is to be fully in the light!
May we be holy! Then we will be free at least internally. External freedom is now up for grabs because we threw away the Constitution with our virtue. Without virtue our republic can not much longer last:
“Without virtue there can be no liberty.”
– Benjamin Rush
“Perfect freedom consists in obeying the dictates of right reason . . . where licentiousness begins, liberty ends.”
– Samuel West
“History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.”
– Douglas MacArthur
“While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.”
– Samuel Adams
“The diminution of public virtue is usually attended with that of public happiness, and the public liberty will not long survive the total extinction of morals.”
– Samuel Adams
It’s time to get back to real Christianity. Our home is in heaven anyway if we pass the test on Earth.
Jesus is a whole lot more serious about sin than what most are being taught: [Q&A] Francis Chan on Rob Bell and Hell: Why ‘ERASING HELL’ was Francis’ most difficult book and how it prompted him to repent for softening Jesus’ warnings — “WE IN AMERICA READ CERTAIN PASSAGES OVER AND OVER TO THE NEGLECT OF OTHERS, we start to believe that Jesus had a friendly tone all the time. … We have tried to block Hell out of our minds. Yet because it’s written about so often in Scripture, I think God does want it on the forefront.”
I present the straight truth in my article: Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God?
May we be holy so we can be ONE (Jesus heart-cry for us in John 17) through these difficult times ahead.
And Jesus said, ~”Then the world will know…”
