Bible prophecy is hard-to-swallow castor oil for a time such as this
First, to students of the Bible that have read its teachings and prophetic forecasts for years, then to atheists, agnostics, and the indifferent, we are beginning to see a quickening of prophecy in real time as America moves to a greater stage of prophetic unfolding.
America is the greatest nation in world history — wealthiest, mightiest military, ethnically rich, blessed beyond measure. In terms of scientific and technological breakthrough, America has no rival. She has accrued these achievements in just 243 years — a span of time that actually is but a microsecond.
Our mighty nation, however, is in a tailspin in terms of our moral and ethical health, the pulse of our relevance. America is in decline. Never has this been more apparent than right now in 2019 under the reprehensible leadership of a president and an administration run amok, recklessly behaving above the law.
The White House is a murky lagoon headed by a rich man governing a spineless staff of “yes” men and women that have no limit as to how far they will go to protect their malevolent “Liar King,” a man the Washington Post has documented as having spewed 12,019 false or misleading claims over 928 days, as of Aug 12, 2019.
Jesus Christ was familiar with the rich immoral, unethical type when he recorded in the synoptic gospels: “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
The decline of the nation did not begin with President Donald J. Trump, the 45th president, but it did escalate under him. Though he has made gains in some areas of governance like a strong economy and resurgence in employment for the American workforce, his ability to foment global leadership, interdependence, and diplomacy has been slipshod at best to utter failure. Here at home, the management of his Administration has been a complete disaster, firing more than 50 members of the WH staff, personnel he either personally selected or had a significant “say” in recruiting.
In wake of the Ukraine Whistle Blower scandal, which prompted an impeachment inquiry against the 45th POTUS by Congress, Trump made this comment documented in the Whistleblower Report:
“The Democrats are trying to destroy the Republican Party and all that it stands for. Stick together, play their game, and fight hard Republicans. Our country is at stake!”
A deranged president attempting to flip the script and deflect blame to anyone else, but himself for the cataclysm that is the Trump Administration. It is classic deceit straight out of John 8: 44, in which Jesus Christ declared His strong aversion to liars.
Great empires have preceded America and eventually fell into decline — ancient Babylonia, Athens, Ottoman Empire, Roman Empire, Sparta, Macedonia, Kush, Shang Dynasty, and many others.
One wonders how long America will remain the preeminent power on Earth. In just a few years we have witnessed some startling erosion, like for instance Russia’s unprecedented meddling in the election of an American president, and erasure of the entire $19.5 billion Chinese market for America’s farmers. Is this the beginning of the end for Lady Liberty as we have known her?
The Bible is the only true and accurate gauge of things to come. Regarding End Time clues, Biblical prophecy has revealed the coming of signs in the Heavens and the Earth — asteroid flybys, cataclysmic natural disasters like massive earthquakes, climate change manifested in successive epic hurricanes, 500-year floods and snowfall, ravaging forest fires, devastating drought … the list goes on.
Surge in evil manifestations of man is another remarkable sign. Murder and mayhem, child abductions, escalating race hatred and threatened race war, mass killings, illicit drug dealings accruing drug cartels trillions in profit … just a few end-time predictions of the ancient prophets we are seeing in real time.
And whether we agree or disagree with the Bible or the prophetic pronouncements, will have no bearing. It will all occur at a predetermined time like sunrise and sunset, spring and winter, life and death.
