God’s Coming Judgment And Destruction of the USA
This video is going to be a tough one. It’s about God’s coming judgment and destruction of America. With what’s been going on across our country, the way we have turned from God, and now with President Trump’s announced Israeli peace plan, I fear we’ve reached a point where our wounds are incurable. Let’s look into it.
In this video, I want to be clear: I’m am not saying “Thus says the Lord,” concerning God’s judgment of America. I am not attempting to speak for God. But in my Spirit, I feel God’s anguish for America and His anger. I love America. It’s my home. And I’ve been praying to God for a long time about restoration and revival, asking Him to pour out His Spirit on this land, to heal us and to turn us around for His glory.
“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” (James 5:16 KJV)
But lately, when I pray for God’s forgiveness and a restoration of America, that God would bring about an end to the rioting, the violence, the wickedness, the immorality, the murder of God’s children through abortion – as I pray for restoration from all these thing, at the same time, more and more, I feel within my Spirit that I can hear God sighing and responding,
Ok. You can pray that, but it’s not going to happen. It’s too late. They’re not going to respond repent.
Ever since this summer’s COVID shutdowns, the rioting and wickedness seem to be rapidly escalating across our country, signifying to me and many others that we are about to enter the end times tribulation foretold in the Bible. And now, with the continuing announcements from President Trump about his Israeli peace plan, the verse that keeps coming back to me concerning America is from Jeremiah 30:
“This is what the LORD says: ‘Your wound is incurable, your injury beyond healing.'” (Jeremiah 30:12 NIV)
I hope I’m wrong on this. Again, I am NOT speaking for God. But I fear the days for America are drawing to a close, quickly. God’s judgment may be coming sooner than we think.
This verse about your wound being incurable was spoken about Israel back when God removed them from the land and scattered them among the nations. But in my Spirit, I keep hearing this verse applied to the United States. And when I read that verse in Jeremiah 30, also notice the verse right before it, verse 29, speaking about the nations:
“For I [am] with thee (spoken to Israel), saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.” (Jeremiah 30:11 KJV)
In this verse there are two outcomes: Israel being punished and then saved, and then all other nations to which Jews have been scattered being brought to a full end.
According to the Berkley Center at Georgetown University, there are about 15 million Jews worldwide. And according to a study done by Brandeis University, 7.5 million live in the United States.
Jews have definitely been scattered to America, which means America will fall under the curse of Jeremiah 30:11, where God says He will “make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee.” The question is not if but when.
America started off as a jewel for God. Our founding fathers were not perfect by any means and many may not have even been saved. But they modeled this country after the Bible and the Ten Commandments. And in doing so, this country came under God’s covenant blessings and has been blessed more than any country in the history of the world.
Atheists try to deny that this nation started out as a Christian nation, but this intentional placement of America under the Authority of God can be seen in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. It can also be seen in quotes from our founding fathers who, again, may not have all even been saved. These were not perfect men, but they understood and at least respected the Bible.
GEORGE WASHINGTON – 1st U.S. President
“While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.”
JOHN ADAMS – 2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other…The general principles, on which the Fathers achieved independence, were… the general Principles of Christianity“
And then an ominous warning from Thomas Jefferson:
THOMAS JEFFERSON – 3rd U.S. President, Drafter and Signer of the Declaration of Independence
“God Who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever…”
PATRICK HENRY – Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution
“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here. The Bible … is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed.”
DECLARATION PASSED BY CONGRESS, 1854
“The great, vital, and conservative element in our system is the belief of our people in the pure doctrines and the divine truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
That was passed by Congress. Hard to imagine, isn’t it?
I could go on and on with quotes from our founding fathers, but you get the idea. Our nation was founded on the principles of the Bible and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That doesn’t mean the founders were perfect Christians. Far from it. Some may not have even been saved. Many were slave owners, a practice condemned by the Bible so strongly that the God dedicated an entire book about it, the book of Exodus. But this nation that our founding fathers created, this country called the United States, was different than any other country, because it was modeled after the Bible and principles of Christian faith.
And because of that, America came under the eternal promises of blessing by God.
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and] to do all His commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.“ (Deuteronomy 28:1-2 KJV)
God spoke this to Israel, but it also applies to any nation or even to any individual who will do as it says, to “hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and] to do all His commandments.” Do you want to improve your life, totally transform every bad thing that’s happened to you into good, then harken diligently to the voice of the Lord, turn to Him in obedience, and you too can fall under His blessings. It is often said that we are not to test the Lord, but I dare say that this is one area where God would not mind being tested. Turn to God today, repent of sins and believe in Jesus, and see if He doesn’t turn your life completely around, into a blessing. This covenant promise of blessing applies to individuals and to nations, and it was applied to the United States because of what our founding fathers did.
The founding fathers, as imperfect as they were, set America on this path and, as a result, brought America under the covenant blessings of God to where we have been blessed more than any nation in the history of the planet.
That blessing reached it’s peak during World War II, when God granted us complete victory over our enemies and then allowed us to become the world’s most industrial economic superpower.
“Blessed [shalt] thou [be] when thou comest in, and blessed [shalt] thou [be] when thou goest out. The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and He shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto Himself, as He hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in His ways.“ (Deuteronomy 28:6-9 KJV)
There was but one condition that God placed on us so that we would keep receiving His blessings: We were to keep His commandments so as to walk in His ways. America has never been a perfect nation. Far from it. There has been much sin and evil in America. But our foundation rested on the promises of God and faith in Him. Our nation’s foundation was the Rock of Christ. Listen to this verse spoken by Jesus. It could apply to how America started:
“He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.” (Luke 6:48 KJV)
The fact that America was founded on the principles of the Bible and the Gospel does not mean that all Americans were in agreement with that. There has always been dissent. In the late 1800s, the rise of Darwinism, the teaching that God did not create mankind, began to gain momentum. There has always been opposition to Christianity in America, but for most of our history, the foundational basis on which our government and its leaders and judges ruled remained firmly grounded on the belief in God and the Bible.
But that began to shift after World War II, where more and more of our government leaders, who were elected to safeguard America, along with ordinary people joined so-called “progressives” and turned from God. Wickedness and rebellion against God across America then increased and has been increasing exponentially over the last hundred years, to the point where Billy Graham said, “If God doesn’t judge America, He will owe Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.” We turned away from the Rock of our foundation and instead, sought after a foundation of earth and sand.
“But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.” (Luke 6:49 KJV)
Throughout the first half of the 20th century, progressive liberalism grew, rejecting all constraints of religious faith and the Bible, to the point where on June 25, 1962, America, as a nation, officially declared war on God.
June 25, 1962, the U.S. Supreme Court declared school-sponsored prayers unconstitutional in the landmark case Engel v. Vitale
With prayer removed from our schools and soon the Bible banned, we surrendered our children to the godless teachings of atheists. Christianity was soon looked down on and the result was profound. Within one generation, America went from being a predominantly Christian nation to a predominantly secular nation, as we gave our children up to the enemy.
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6 KJV)
That verse works both ways:
Train up a child in the way he should NOT go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
It wasn’t long after this Supreme Court ruling that America suffered it’s first military loss: the Vietnam War.
“But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:“ (Deuteronomy 28:15 KJV)
“Cursed [shalt] thou [be] in the city, and cursed [shalt] thou [be] in the field. Cursed [shall be] thy basket and thy store. Cursed [shall be] the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Cursed [shalt] thou [be] when thou comest in, and cursed [shalt] thou [be] when thou goest out.” (Deuteronomy 28:16-19 KJV)
“The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and SHALT BE REMOVED into all the kingdoms of the earth.” (Deuteronomy 28:25 KJV)
Did you get that? A nation that turns from God has but one outcome: It shall be removed. It may last for a while, but ultimately, it will be removed.
One of the curses against a nation that is in rebellion against God is that, instead of reaping God’s blessing of prosperity, the nation will become steeped in debt.
“The stranger that [is] within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.“ (Deuteronomy 28:43-44 KJV)
Between 1920 and 2020, America went from being a creditor nation to the world’s largest debtor nation.
1920 – $26 billion credit surplus
2020 – $26 TRILLION debt shortfall
Nevertheless, America’s war against God continued:
1973 U.S. Supreme Court case, Roe v. Wade, affirmed that access to safe and legal abortion is a constitutional right
– Over 60 million abortions in the US alone
– Abortions per day: 2362+
– Abortions per hour: 98+
– 1 abortion every 96 seconds
– Hardest Hit: Blacks, though comprising only 13.4% of the population, make up the majority of all abortions
– White: 35%
– Black: 38% (Blacks had abortions 5x greater than Whites)
– Hispanic: 18.8%
– Other: 8.2%
In the 1960s, woman’s liberation movements and the sexual revolution took hold of America, permanently lowering the moral standards across the county. Decade by decade, America’s moral standards where taken down lower and lower, to where they were thrown out altogether.
The rejection of God across America put us on a path of increasing depravity. When we hear the term “depravity,” we think of sexual immorality, but it goes much deeper. The word “depravity” comes from two Latin words:
“de” – meaning “completely”
“pravus” – meaning “crooked”
It literally means that we have become completely crooked or bent in the wrong direction to where we are unable to choose right from wrong.
” Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20 KJV)
Don’t we see this in America today, calling evil good and good evil?
One of the curses that God has declared against a nation or individual who turns from Him is that they will become increasingly depraved and that, if they do not correct the path of depravity that they are on, they will reach a point of no return, where they become unable to turn back. I believe America has reached that point.
Depravity always begins with a nation or person making a conscious choice to reject God. They are aware of God and what God says, but they consciously decide to go the other way.
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [Him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,” (Romans 1:21-22 KJV)
When this choice to reject God is made, God, in His mercy, does not judge the nation or person right way, but allows them to fall into greater levels of depravity with the goal that they will see how bad it’s getting for them and repent, changing course. God does not want to judge you or this nation, but after a certain point, it becomes too late and the nation or person becomes irretrievably lost. At that point, there’s nothing left but judgment.
In response to people choosing to reject God, Romans chapter 1 says three times that God gives them over to increasing levels of depravity. As I go through these, think about America. Which of these three levels of depravity is America at right now?
First, God gives them over to impurity and lust.
“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.” (Romans 1:24-25 KJV)
Second, God gives them over to vile passions.
“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:” (Romans 1:26 KJV)
“And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” (Romans 1:27 KJV)
Third, God gives them over to a wicked, reprobate mind.
“And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,” (Romans 1:28-29 KJV)
“Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” (Romans 1:30-32 KJV)
With all the rioting across America, can we not see reprobate minds on display every night now?
America has reached its peak of depravity. The wound, I fear, is incurable.
As America continued its rebellion against God, God responded by sending a severe warning on September 11, 2001, when 19 Islamic extremists flew two planes into New York’s World Trade Center buildings. It was the largest attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor was attacked in 1941.
“The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, [as swift] as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand…A nation of fierce countenance…And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down…” (Deuteronomy 28:49-52 KJV)
God originally spoke these Words to Israel as a warning and punishment for their rebellion. And yet, they now sound equally true for America. But America did not listen, nor did we heed the warning.
On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court held in a 5–4 decision that the Fourteenth Amendment requires all states to grant same-sex marriages and recognize same-sex marriages granted in other states.
The very act which God condemned, America flaunted in His face as pride, even lighting up the White House in pride colors. It’s one thing for individuals to walk in rebellion against God, but now, in its official capacity, the government of that nation proudly declared its rebellion against God. It was a declaration of war. America’s fall into depravity was complete. It was declaring evil good and good evil. Our Christian foundation was gone.
“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3 KJV)
The psalmist goes on to say what will happen when the foundations are destroyed.
“The LORD [is] in His holy temple, the LORD’S throne [is] in heaven: His eyes behold, His eyelids try, the children of men. The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence His soul hateth. Upon the wicked He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: [this shall be] the portion of their cup. For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; His countenance doth behold the upright.” (Psalm 11:4-7 KJV)
God’s judgment of America has been coming since World War II, as America’s foundation of faith in God eroded. And with each erosion, God’s blessings and hand of protection over America were lifted, more and more, until we reach today, where I believe, God’s hand of protection has now been completely removed.
Over the past decades, violent crime greatly increased. Debt increased. Sexual immorality increased. Conflict with other countries increased.
Still, up until today, God did not destroy us. Why is that? We can attribute it to His mercy, but I think there are two reasons why God has not already destroyed America. The first reason can be summed up in one word: Israel.
In spite of all that we have done against God, our support of Israel kept Him from removing His hand of blessing completely and destroying us. For God promised Abraham that He would bless Israel and any nation or person that blessed Israel.
“And I will bless them that bless thee (Israel), and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3 KJV)
Since 1948, when Israel reformed as a nation, America has been Israel’s strongest and most powerful ally, defending the rights of Jewish people and their country. America has been the number one country that has been a blessing to Israel. In so doing, in spite of all our faults, America again placed itself under the covenant blessings of God.
In spite of all that we were doing against God and the directions we had taken against God’s Word, God was still bound by His own promises to bless us because we were a blessing to Israel and God will never go back on His Word.
I contend that it is our support of Israel that has kept God from destroying us until now. We deserve destruction. But God has relented because we were being a blessing to Israel. On May 14, 2018, the United States officially moved its embassy to Jerusalem, again blessing Israel and keeping America under God’s covenant of blessing, in spite of all that bad things going on inside America.
However, in this year 2020, all of that is now changing. With President Trump’s announced Middle East Peace Plan, called the “Deal of the Century,” we are now putting ourselves into the position of persuading Israel to go against God’s Word, pressuring them to divide the land, giving part to the land to the Palestinians for a homeland.
In Genesis 13, God gave the land to Israel as an everlasting possession.
“And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed FOR EVER.” (Genesis 13:14-15 KJV)
In Joel 3, God specifically calls out the division of the land of Israel as a reason why He will bring judgment and destruction against the nations.
“I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and [for] my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.“ (Joel 3:2 KJV)
On the surface, the motives of the United States are good: to obtain peace in the Middle East. But by persuading Israel to divide its land, we are advocating to them that they should disobey God, instead of supporting them to stand firm on God’s Word. We know from Scripture that Israel will decide to support this peace plan, instead of obeying God. But what does that mean to the nation that caused them to do it? If America is now causing and persuading Israel to disobey God, then we have moved away from a position of being a blessing to Israel to a position of cursing Israel. We don’t mean it as a curse. But when we are persuading Israel to disobey God and even pressuring them to do so, at that point we ourselves have become a curse to Israel’s well being.
“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee“ (Genesis 12:3 KJV)
By America being the agent that causes Israel to stumble and disobey God, we are effectively cursing Israel. Although our motives are to help Israel, we have ourselves become accursed. God’s covenant promise concerning Israel has never been lifted. He will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel. America has now moved from a place of God’s blessing to where God is now obligated by His own Word to curse us, or He will break His Word, which He will never do.
God is now obligate to curse America.
This isn’t just about President Trump and what he’s doing. Many presidents have been heading down this path. And throughout our history, God has repeatedly warned America and our presidents not to be the agent that divides the land of Israel. Some of our greatest natural disasters can be traced back to US-led Israeli peace initiatives.
October 28, 1991 – The Perfect Storm
In 1991, then President George Bush Sr. pressured Israel to attend a peace conference in Madrid, Spain. When the October conference started, a strong Nor’easter arose in the Atlantic, named “the perfect storm.” It traveled 1,000 miles from East to West, the opposite direction such storms normally tracked, and struck the coast of Maine with the largest waves ever recorded in that region, damaging the president’s house in Kennebunkport.
August 23, 1992 – Hurricane Andrew
One year later, the Madrid conference moved to Washington, DC. During the conference, Hurricane Andrew stuck landfall in Florida and Louisiana. It caused $30 Billion in damages, left over 100,000 people homeless and was the worst natural disaster to hit America, until Katrina surpassed it in 2005.
January 16, 1994 – Northridge California Earthquake
In Geneva, President Bill Clinton met with Syria’s President Assad to persuade the Syrians to go along with a peace plan that involved Israel giving up the Golan Heights. Within 24 hours, a 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit Southern California, becoming the largest natural disaster to strike the United States, behind Hurricane Andrew.
September 28, 1998 – Hurricane George
Hurricane George pounded the Gulf Coast, causing $1 Billion in damages as President Bill Clinton met with Palestinian leader Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu at the White House to finalize a deal that would involve Israel giving up 13% of Judea and Samaria. The hurricane dissipated at the exact time that Arafat got on a plane to leave the United States.
August 25-September 7, 2005 – Hurricane Katrina
From August 17-23, 2005, under intense pressure from President George H. Bush, Israel forcibly evacuated its settlements on the West Bank, turning the land over to Palestinian Arabs. It was the largest forced evacuation in Israeli history. Two days later, on August 25, a tropical depression in the Gulf of Mexico intensified into Hurricane Katrina, which made landfall in Louisiana and the President’s home state of Texas, causing intense flooding and the largest mass migration and forced evacuation in US history. The similarity is striking. Immediately after Israel forced its people from their homes in massive numbers, in the US, Katrina forced Americans from their homes in massive numbers.
These are just the highlights, folks. There are other disasters and events I could list that coincide exactly with America’s attempts to pressure Israel into giving up its land. The message is this:
When we pressure Israel into giving up its land for peace, we are moving out from under God’s covenant promise of blessing into God’s covenant promise of cursing.
I believe God is now obligated by His Word to curse America, and that the destruction that is coming will be worse than ever.
America used to be a blessing to Israel. With that now gone, God’s hand of protection and blessing is removed. America can now be destroyed at any moment.
So what comes next?
Is America indeed the Babylon whose destruction is foretold in Scripture. I won’t get into that in this video, but there are many similarities between the description of Babylon that would fit America, characteristics that just don’t fit the other contenders for this title, Rome or Jerusalem. Time will tell.
But one thing is certain: America is now ripe for destruction. So what do we do?
First, PRAY. All Christians should continually pray for the peace and blessing of Israel and that God might in His mercy delay the coming judgment and destruction of America. Pray for repentance and wisdom across America.
But ultimately, I believe because America has chosen to rebel against God, to turn from following Him, and now is enticing Israel to disobey God, God’s wrath will come against America in full force. Barring a miraculous repentance, which I do not see coming nor do I see it in God’s Word coming, I believe that a destruction is coming against America so great that we may well be destroyed.
I hate saying that. I hate thinking it. I hope I’m wrong. America is my home. I love this country in spite of its many faults. But God is Holy and He is bringing everything to its end.
“For I [am] with thee (Israel), saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee…” (Jeremiah 30:11 KJV)
“This is what the LORD says: ‘Your wound is incurable, your injury beyond healing.'” (Jeremiah 30:12 NIV)
I believe God’s judgment of the United States will happen swiftly and soon. How bad will it be? Will we be completely destroyed? Possibly, but I hope not. I take comfort in this verse from Revelation 12, speaking of how Israel will be protected in the last half of the great Tribulation:
“And to the woman (Israel) were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.” (Revelation 12:14 KJV)
It is my hope and prayer that these wings of a great eagle that protect Israel refers to America, that perhaps God isn’t done with us entirely and will not destroy us completely in His judgment. We need to pray for America daily, that God would spare us. But given the path we are on, some level of destruction is almost certainly coming and, I believe, soon. Another reason for this coming destruction is that America must be removed as a world power to allow the Anti-Christ to set up a one-world system. We know from the Bible that this end time system is coming and as we look at current events we can see it taking shape. But America stands in the way of that system, so we know some level of destruction that will set America back is coming.
I said that there were two things holding back this destruction. One was our being a blessing to Israel, which has now come to an end. The second and I believe final thing holding back America’s destruction is this: The presence of God’s children in America.
The presence of God’s children, I believe, is now the only thing holding back America’s destruction. But God has a remedy for that and it is the reason why every person who claims Christ as their Savior need not fear this coming destruction. This reason is this: God will remove His children right before destruction comes.
In Genesis 19, angels of the Lord were sent to destroy the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah because of their wickedness.
“For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.” (Genesis 19:13 KJV)
But Abraham contended with God.
“And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that [are] therein?” (Genesis 18:23-24 KJV)
“And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.” (Genesis 18:26 KJV)
Many of you know this story well. Abraham starts at 50 and barters his way down to just 10, and God said He would spare the entire place on account of just 10 righteous people. In the end, we know that there was only 1: Lot. Lot wasn’t perfect at all, but he believed God and it is faith in God that makes a person righteous in His sight. The angels sent to destroy the cities told Lot:
“Haste thee, escape…for I cannot do any thing till thou be come…” (Genesis 19:22 KJV)
God’s destruction was already decided, but it could not be executed until every last righteous person was removed. So it will be with America. God has not called His children to wrath. America’s destruction may have been decided, but God’s people, those who have placed their faith in Jesus for salvation, will be removed first, in a great event commonly called the Rapture.
“For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 KJV)
“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52 KJV)
I do not believe God will allow His children to witness the destruction of America. But the fact that we see this destruction drawing near means our removal from this earth in the Rapture is extremely close.
So what should we do?
This is urgent folks. If you don’t know the Lord or are not 100% sure of your salvation, turn to Him now while you still have time. Lot’s immediate family were the only ones who survived the destruction. Everyone else was left behind because they turned from God and did not heed the warnings. Will you survive the destruction that’s coming?
If you question your salvation, turn to God NOW and settle it. You may not have tomorrow to do it.
If you know you are saved but are still indulging in sin, repent now before He comes. No amount of sinful pleasure is worth it.
Let me reassure you: No matter what you’ve done, no matter how badly you’ve blown it or what sins you have committed, it is still possible for you to be saved by God and to escape this destruction. Through many warnings, God is this day giving everyone yet another chance to turn to Him and be saved. But it will soon be too late. God is holy and He will judge sin, both the sin of a nation and the sin of an individual.
Time is almost up. But the good news is that you don’t have to go through the destruction and world-wide tribulation that’s coming. Trust me, you do not want to be here when that happens. There is a way out but only one way out, and it is through Jesus.
Being saved from the judgment that’s coming is as easy as ABC.
Admit to God that you have sinned.
Believe that Jesus, God’s Son, died on the cross to pay for
your sins and rose from the dead, showing that 100% of your debt to God has been paid.
Call upon the Name of Jesus and ask Him
to save you.
“All who call upon the Name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13
If you are not 100% sure that you are saved, that if you died today, God would welcome you into heaven, I urge you to make your commitment to Jesus secure right now. Here’s a prayer for salvation that you can pray. But keep in mind that a prayer does not save you. You are saved only when you place your trust in Jesus alone, God’s Son, believing in your heart that He died to pay your debt of sin to God and that He rose from the dead to show you the eternal life that He offers. This prayer, then, is just a way of formalizing that decision, putting a stake in the ground, saying that you are trusting in Him and never going back. If that’s what you would like to do, please pray with me:
“Lord, I have sinned and I need you to save me. I believe that Your Son Jesus died on the cross to pay for my sins and that He rose from the dead to show us the new eternal life You have for us. I believe solely in Jesus to save me, that He paid my debt of sin 100%. Please forgive my sins and save me now, Lord, according to your promises. In Jesus Name.”
If you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, know right now that you are eternally saved and will not be judged, but have escaped the coming terrible judgment. Jesus said:
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” (John 5:24 KJV)
God is coming soon. Even so, maranatha. Come Lord Jesus!
