I began writing this yesterday which was Memorial Day … the day on which we remember and honor those Americans – members of our Armed Services – who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our freedom and liberty. But I didn’t finish yesterday because I wanted to write about more than Memorial Day – I wanted to write about America, prophecy – our history – our today – and our tomorrows.
In this country the military take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, and we are both thankful and indebted to them and we celebrate Memorial Day to show our heartfelt gratitude for their devotion, service, and sacrifice.
But those brave men and women did not die for country alone. They died for their countrymen and for something larger than all of us. They died for America – for the dream of a land where men and women of courage and vision could live out that dream of boundless freedom, together, as free people under the rule of eternal law on which this country was founded. That understanding of eternal law was what made America an exceptional place. A place where walking in the liberty of our hard-won freedom has birthed exceptional innovation, writing, religious freedom, and the ability to live our lives on our own terms.
Those soldiers, airmen, and sailors were honorable, and their blood has watered the tree of liberty from the beginning of our blessed land. From our genesis, patriots have been willing to die for this country and what it represented. Many of our founding fathers died in the American revolution, many more died penniless having given every cent they had toward this cause of freedom. Sadly, those noble dead are being betrayed by lying politicians, big business and tech oligarchs, mindless bureaucrats and globalists who are by design, destroying all they lived and died for.
Lincoln spoke of these patriots and reminded posterity; “that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
But this is not the America that those honored dead gave their all for. For years detestable globalists posing as American “political leaders” have been subverting our liberty, our freedom, our American exceptionalism – our America, in pursuit of their own happiness which was in fact their personal riches and power stolen from all of us. In the beginning perhaps they believed that it was just the pursuit of money and power. But it has devolved into something much more sinister.
It is time to wake up America. We are sadly in the middle of Meryl Haggard’s unwittingly prophetic country hit “Are the Good Times Really Over?” Here are a few of the opening lyrics:
I wish a buck was still silver
And it was back when the country was strong
Back before Elvis and before Viet Nam war came along
Before the Beatles and “Yesterday”
When a man could still work and still would
Is the best of the free life behind us now?
And are the good times really over for good?
Are we rollin’ down hill like a snowball headed for hell
With no kind of chance for the flag or the Liberty Bell
This is a battle for the soul of human-kind – a battle of light and darkness – good and evil. This is the 6000-year struggle which began back in Genesis Chapter 2. This is a battle that began in the heavens and the loser – Satan – the angel of light was defeated and cast out of God’s heaven. For mankind we can trace it all the way back to the Garden. For America it began before there was an America with Sir Francis Bacon who wrote and in 1627 published his demonically inspired “New Atlantis.” The publication described the new Atlantean Covenant to be birthed in a new land – America.
The Atlantean covenant for which Bacon longed, was the time of the pre-diluvian world. Scripture tells us that was a time when the world was dominated by fallen angels cast from Heaven called Nephilim who had taken as sexual conquests the daughters of men. They produced a race of giants known as the Rephaim. These were genetically corrupted men who had devolved into a violent wicked semi-human race whose every thought was “evil continually.”
God destroyed that world with a flood saving only animals along with Noah and his family. Noah is described as a preacher of righteousness who was perfect in his generations. That is, he was fully human and had no Nephilim DNA in him. Satan had managed to corrupt most of the earth with his darkness.
But Yahweh has a redemptive nature and saved Noah and renewed his creation. He washed that creation clean with a flood that covered the whole earth. Fast forward now to the planting of America and Bacon’s diabolic dream of re-establishing the Atlantean covenant here in America. History was being manipulated even back then by evil men who understood dark arts and were using their mystery knowledge, power, and money to bring about their hellish designs.
But Heaven had other plans. Yahweh, instead of their Atlantean Covenant, built a country that would be the envy of all nations … a country that would lead the world in economic, military, and industrial power. But more importantly a country from which the Gospel of the Kingdom would freely flow to the world. America was built on a belief that was carried in the womb of a small ship named the Mayflower. On it were men and women of faith and courage who planted their flag which was the flag of faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
This was the first nation in the history of humanity that had no subjects because “we the people” were the government. Our thoughts and history were shaped by preachers like George Whitefield, of whom it is said he could preach to 100 thousand souls in an outdoor service, and all could hear his miraculous voice.
There were preachers like Jonathan Edwards, who penned and preached “Sinners in the hands of an angry God.” Brilliant Harvard graduate Dr. Joseph Sewell a mighty man of faith, Jonathan Mayhew who preached that it was the duty of Christians to fight against Britain’s tyranny, Abraham Keteltas who preached that war against Britain and their attempts to impose religious persecution through establishment of the Anglican church and the church’s spiritual darkness, was obedience to God, and preachers like Peter Muhlenberg a member of the Black Robe Regiment who in 1776 finished a sermon to his congregation in Woodstock, Virginia, through off his preachers robe, revealing an officer’s uniform of the Virginia militia. Muhlenberg later successfully stormed the British lines at Yorktown.
This was a Godly nation, built not on a religious sentiment, but on a Biblical understanding of life and righteousness. Our founders did not give us a democracy as is so commonly stated by media, politicians, and educators … they gave us a republic, where everyone has a God-given right to live their life in freedom exercising the liberty granted within eternal law, to live according to their own calling. Our founding fathers understood that rights come from God and could not be taken by the tyranny of the majority. Our God-given rights could not be voted or legislated away.
This was a place where men and women of faith could dream great dreams, write great books, teach their children the things of God and live exceptional lives which lead to the unique concept of American exceptionalism. As Alexis de Tocqueville said, “America is great because she is good.” But Tocqueville also warned if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.
Needless to say, we have ceased to be good. Sin is rampant in our land. That for which so many have given so much is slipping away. Homosexuality is deemed a lifestyle. Abortion … mothers murdering their children – is now celebrated as “choice.” Adultery and fornication are now “sexual freedom.” The land is filled with violence and crime. We fail to enforce even basic laws and forced perverse laws on our population all of which claim the banner of license but are in reality licentiousness.
In states like California, thou shalt not steal has been changed to thou shalt not steal more than $1000 at a time. Hundreds of shootings happen every day. We murder about 51 people a day without counting those brutalized then murdered by abortionists. Fortune tellers and practitioners of dark arts ply their demonic trade openly on streets across America. Drugs, illegal aliens including terrorists flow in from our southern border and yet we refuse to close it and protect Americans.
We have ceased to be good and chosen darkness and sin over righteousness and light. And scripture tells us that assuredly sin has consequences. We have lost our freedom; our elections are no longer fair and honest which means we the people are no longer government. Globalist and traitors now steal elections with impunity and the perfidious judges and kangaroo courts give them cover. We have become less than subjects – we are chattel or mere fodder. Lackies like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris now claim title to the stolen White House. In just the few months they have been in office America has plunged toward chaos.
Ninety days ago gasoline was $1.50 a gallon, now it is closer to $3.00 per gallon a 40-year high. For the average American, that one change took $1300 out of their pocket. For a husband and wife that means a $2600 tax caused by this administration’s policies. With inflation rising at a rate approaching 4% per annum the average family just lost nearly another $3500 annually.
Just a few months ago the Middle East was at peace with treaties between Islamic nations and Israel being signed in a flurry of activity. In January, our border was secure and the flood of illegal aliens had been stemmed. Around the world America had regained respect. But in just four short months all of that has vanished. Why?
The answer is simple, Biden/Harris did not come to govern America they came to destroy it. They are subsuming America into the long-awaited dark visage of Sir Francis Bacon and the globalist oligarchs around the world … they are establishing the godless utopian dream Bacon called … the new Atlantean covenant.
We are in trouble. One year ago I warned America in a series of four messages that we were going to come under judgment. I warned that Mr. Trump would win the election but lose the White House. This is about to become a nightmare from which we cannot awake. This is a crisis that cannot and will not be cured with politics or force.
This is a spiritual battle that will find respite only in repentance and revival. Short of that spiritual awakening, America will stagger blindly into the New World Order. But this is not the New World Order of George Orwell where government is merely dishonest and oppressive. This is a global demonic blackness that has never been and never will be again. This will be the time of horrific darkness – of tribulation as described in Revelation. Short of national repentance this will be the time of seals, trumpets and vials or bowls. This will be a time of judgment on earth and wrath will be poured out on the planet for the sins of man.
There is much more I could say on this subject but there is neither time nor space at this writing as we look back on Memorial Day. Memorial Day is to be a day of somber reflection as we remember and honor those who have fought and died for this country. Many of us mourn the loss of loved ones who have sacrificed all for this country. But I tell you today we need not mourn for them as much as we mourn for the living who are about to experience life in a time such as has never been. My advice to America looking back on this Memorial Day is to prepare your hearts for unimaginable sadness, savagery, and anguish. Prepare your minds for something so unspeakable that it is impossible to even comprehend. Finally prepare your family for privation such as the world has never known. Like Joseph in Egypt prepare now for the lean years and darkness to come.
My warning to believers is simple. You must become serious about the things of Yahweh. There is no longer time for opaque Christianity. You are either in or you are out. Pray that Holy Spirit will redeem the time we have wasted on those things that are not about His Kingdom. Pray that you will draw ever closer to the Father through His Son Yeshua Messiah. Matthew 24 tells us that in this time, the faith of many will “wax cold.” Sin will abound and many will fall from faith. Look how the church shrunk under Covid – separating the sheep from the goats. Now imagine a time when attending church could mean imprisonment or even death. Such a time is on the horizon, but our calling is to endure to the end.
I find it interesting that Matthew uses the word endure. It is the Greek word hypomenō. It literally means not just to survive, but to bear bravely horrible treatment. Messiah tells us that we shouldn’t be surprised when the world hates us because they first hated Him.
This is the time of Revelation. As the seals of Revelation are broken, as the trumpets sound and the bowls and vials are poured out there will be judgment on earth. We will be persecuted. We can already see it beginning. Christianity is reviled around the world. Letting others know of your Christianity will get you murdered in the Middle East, China, Russia, many parts of Africa, and now with the mass Islamist migration to Europe and America, and the growing “woke” culture, Christians will soon find no refuge any place in the world.
Lamentably, darkness is coming to America. Before Satan is done, this will be the darkest place on what will soon become a prison planet. Yahweh says to his people in Jeremiah and again in Revelation “come out of her” my people. He says to flee and escape the land of Babylon, which is of course end time Babylon. Where is that place? Sadly, I believe it to be America … our once beautiful America.
I urge you to prepare spiritually and physically for what is to come. Don’t be caught unawares. Matthew 24 says: But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
The implication is, prepare. Don’t wait until the last minute i.e. in the winter or on the sabbath day, prepare for that day physically, mentally, and spiritually, well in advance.
There will be wars and rumors of wars. There will be natural disasters, strange and violent weather, frightful signs and wonders in the sky, with pestilence and plagues which make covid seem less than a common cold. There will be starvation and earthquakes. Earth will become a prison planet enslaved to the darkness of a demonic global government where murder and mayhem and unspeakable horrors will be the lot of mankind. Revelation tells us that men will die of hunger, the sword, disease, and some will simply die of “death.” Life will be so horrific, that some will just die of horror. Life will be reduced to an unimaginable horrible show.
But that is not for us – those who are called by the name of Yeshua. We will see this all around us – the wars – the earthquakes, the sun and them moon going dark but unlike the world we will know that as Matthew says this is just the birth pangs of what is to come – the rule of Messiah on earth for 1000 years. But don’t be deceived there will be martyrs – too many to count. In Revelation 6 those martyred saints ask; “How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?” But Yahweh assures them that when the number of martyred is full he will avenge their blood. That will be Yahweh’s Memorial Day.
And for believers, death carries no sting. While we live, we live unto the Lord, and if we die, we are together with Him. So as believers we understand that no matter how bad it gets – even when the sun and moon are dark, when the only light on earth is the artificial light created my man, we can still look up and know that when we see the light of heaven exploding across the planet, we will not be standing in fear, but we will be rejoicing, for our Redeemer has come on clouds of glory and the time of our salvation is at hand.
So as we look back on this Memorial Day – we have honored our fallen heroes – but more importantly, we will remember what it is they fought and died for. They fought for the America that was and the idea of freedom and liberty under the banner of eternal righteousness. Be blessed – be faithful unto the end and look up for your redemption draweth nigh.
