God's Impending Judging Of America

February 7, 2023
Greg DesVoignes



In two prior articles, we looked at the prophecies of what the world would look like before God's judgment comes on the entire world.  We did this through the lenses of how it was in the "Days of Noah" and the "Days of Lot" as prophesied by Jesus in Matthew 24.  Now we will add to these and look at what may be impending judgments on America itself using Israel and Judah as the examples via Scripture in comparison with what can be seen yet further in the dynamics and revelations of the election of Joe Biden in 2020, and the recent "mid term" 2022 elections in the United States.  To those in other countries reading this, the things seen in the Scriptures also apply to your countries too; but the dynamics and timing may be different.  However, America may be one initial example to watch for of the things to come and judgments as prophesied in Scripture and thus be diminished as a significant nation in these latter days.  I believe these things can reveal much to us.

For in no other time in the history of America has there been a President, his administration, many legislators, many State Governors, and Mayors, City Councils, even down to school boards who have as their agenda to purposely and knowingly, and without shame, to destroy the United States of America with their evil globalist and anti-Christ agendas.  The health system, which is woven into these lower government entities, is part of this agenda.  This is a system controlled by the government through such entities such as The U.S. Department of Health, the Food and Drug Administration, the Center for Disease Control, and the National Institutes of Health.  Because of Biden's bowing to the World Health Organization, our entire health system will be overseen by that evil globalist entity via amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR) treaty.  It ultimately gives operational control of health issues within the United States (and other countries) to the WHO.

The health system, while it may have well meaning people in it, kills children through abortions, mutilates children for the Satanic Transgender evils,  and kills through poisons of the Pharmaceutical companies.  It was, and will be again, responsible for taking away freedom by fear and intimidation during their Covid agenda. AND, it is evident God is allowing this to happen as we will see. Israel is to be the international focus in these last days and into the Tribulation (Zechariah 12 , Zechariah 14)

By the way, since I mentioned abortion; there is an international demonic organization called "The Temple of Satan" which recently opened a tele-health website in New Mexico for the purpose of offering abortions under the banner of "religious freedom" to those who are members of their organization.  Noiting a Texas law that prevents some abortions, these Satanists say

"TST filed a lawsuit against Texas, stating that this law prohibits TST members from performing a religious ritual to remove nonviable fetal tissue up to 24 weeks of pregnancy."

Oh, so they note that abortion is part of a religious ritual. And what have they to say about a murdered child?

"Both Indiana and Arkansas have successfully passed laws requiring health care facilities to bury or cremate fetal remains from spontaneous or induced abortion or ectopic pregnancy regardless of their patients’ wishes. This clearly constitutes a violation of the long-established domain of religious entities to handle the remains of the deceased. TST asserts its religious right to treat human tissue as medical waste."

This is just as it was in Israel.  No regard for human life in the name of religion.

"And they built the high places of Baal which are in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.’  Jeremiah 32:25

How can we know these warnings in God's Word and learn from them?

Warnings First To The Christian Church

The Old Testament (The Scriptures) are not just a history of man and his relation, or lack of relation to God and God's plan of salvation through Jesus, but as Psalm 19:11 says of His Word, "Moreover by them Your servant is warned, And in keeping them there is great reward.".  It is, THE WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD.  Paul specifically noted in Acts 20:27-31 that he had taught the believers in Ephesus the whole counsel of God, warning them that after his departure, "savage wolves" would come in from within the church and pull people away from God.  The whole counsel of God was seen in the Scriptures, the Old Testament, and these "savage wolves", the false teachers, do not want us to know them.

Paul further explained that we must learn from the judgments on Israel as result of their abandoning the true God for their own ways, devices, and the gods and ways of the "world" around them, and for holding onto the gods of Egypt even after deliverance out of there.  Paul said of the judgments in relation to the church,

"Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.

These were saved people.  Delivered from bondage by the blood of a lamb on their door posts, symbolic of the death of Christ.  Paul notes that in the same manner the Christian is baptized, these also were symbolically baptized in their going through the Red Sea.  He separated them from their old world and past.  And, they participated in the Spiritual Rock who followed them; Jesus.  However...

"5 But with most of them God was not well pleased, for their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.Now these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted. And do not become idolaters as were some of them. As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” Nor let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them did, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell; nor let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed by serpents; 10 nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer. 11 Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.

12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall." 1 Corinthians 10:1-12

While these above verses refer to Israel's initial and chosen rebellions against God in the "wilderness" before entering Canaan, their apostasies continued again only after a short time of obeying God after entering Canaan.  So after a few hundred years of warnings by the prophets that if they did not repent of the evilness they were in as a result of becoming an unfaithful wife to God, God finally brought destruction on them.

The Scriptures The New Testament

Do you mean that the Old Testament is still relevant and is to be studied?  YES!  Paul specifically said they were written for "our admonition", noting 2,000 years ago that; the time is short.  But note; this admonition is to a Church.  A warning not to deteriorate from Christ.  What then of a country, and yes, a world, of which most do not even know Him?

Paul proclaims that the Old Testament is of utmost importance for us to know.  Like Paul said, these scriptures were written "for our admonition".  One intent of the Old Testament (the Scriptures) is to show us who God is, His heart towards those who believe, the character of His "Name", His salvation, how to live in His ways for the good He has toward us.  And among others, this important message that alludes to what Paul says above.  Jesus told the Pharisees that the Scriptures testified of Him! (John 5:37-40) Look at how much we miss in understanding God if we ignore the Scriptures as seen on the left of the photo!  Believers are not under the law of the "Old Testament", but under the "new Covenant" of salvation through faith and belief in Jesus and making Him the Lord of our lives.  But, the Old Testament (Scriptures) is what Jesus taught; it is, the Word of God.  But the law still stands as our tutor (Galatians 3:24-29)

Repeating again, as Psalm 19:11 says of His Words as written in the Scriptures, "Moreover by them Your servant is warned, And in keeping them there is great reward."

But there are those many false teachers of today within the Church that say we do not need to know the Old Testament, that we do not need to know prophecy. This is in total opposition to the commands of God and comes from the mouth of Satan.  These are just a part of the "savage wolves" Paul warned us about.

Paul's warning to the Corinthians is based in part on what is seen in Numbers 13 and 14.  But if we have not studied the Scriptures (OT) then we will not see, nor understand these things and will fall into the same snares Israel and Judah did and repeat their history; and we have.

The Beginning Of Apostasy Of Israel

In the end of chapter 13 and the beginning of 14, we see Israel sitting some distance from the Jordan river, which is the border of the land of Canaan, the land God had promised to them.  It had been promised to them hundreds of years before through Abraham.  But Israel was not to enter it until the dwellers had reached their peak of evil (Genesis 15:13-16) and after Israel's bondage in Egypt.

So three generations after Abraham (to whom the promises were given to), Israel was formed, and God, by divine circumstances, moved them into Egypt. God then allowed Israel to come under bondage in Egypt because they had involved themselves with the culture and gods of Egypt (see Ezekiel 20:8). First revealed in Ezekiel 20:8, this would suggest that God had warned them way back before Moses; but they did not take heed.  So the bondage began in order that they would not like their circumstances and call out to the God they had only heard of.   This country is no different today in our ease.  But now we are becoming a society living in bondage; and it is getting worse.  God is speaking to us again.

Paul warned Timothy

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:... 2 Timothy 3:1   Read the rest and compare to today.

It is apparent that the bondage and evil is getting worse. But how long will it take before God is cried out to, and not man?

Distressed by their bondage, Israel finally cried out to this God of promises that they did not know.  (Should not this be done today?). God heard their cries, sent them a deliverer (Moses) from among their own, and he delivered them via God's power.  God showed Israel and the Egyptians who He is through ten great signs and wonders in the land of Egypt.  God, through Moses, showed His power over all their nine major gods in these ten plagues that he brought upon the Egyptians and their King.  God not only destroyed their gods by showing His power over them, he destroyed the agriculture and livestock; their food supply as part of their judgment.  Then, He brought plagues and death among the Egyptians. God made Egypt a place not to be desired to remain in.  (Note that God brought the first three plagues on Israel as well as the Egyptians.)

Is God doing this today?  Is God allowing this country and the world to be a place not to be desired, but for a better place?  Is God saying to us,

"22 “Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other.  Isaiah 45:22

Yet still, even after seeing and experiencing these wonders of God, Israel rebelled against God on their way out of Egypt, right at the Red Sea and subsequently had problems with unbelief in the Wilderness.  They acted this way even though they had seen both the blessings of God's salvation, and the judgments of God for their rebellious disbelief.  Now, after leaving Egypt and being near the border of Canaan (the first time), Israel was about to begin to enter the land of promise.

But... after sending twelve spies into the land to scope it out (Numbers 13), all but two (Joshua and Caleb) gave a grim report to Moses and to the twelve tribes of Israel.  These ten other spies said that although the land was a good land as God had said it would be, it was filled with giants, the Nephlim.  They declared that there is no way they could enter the land without being destroyed themselves.

The account of the spies coming back after 40 days of surveying the land and its people says,

26 Now they departed and came back to Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the children of Israel in the Wilderness of Paran, at Kadesh; they brought back word to them and to all the congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land. 27 Then they told him, and said: “We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. 28 Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there. 29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the South; the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountains; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea and along the banks of the Jordan.”

30 Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.”

31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.” 32 And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature. 33 There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”

So all of the spies saw the descendants of Anak, the descendants of the Nephlim, the hybrids of demon and human relations; the demonic giants.  They saw their strong fortified cities.  And even though they admitted that the land and it's produce was as God said, they said these beings and fortifications were too strong to defeat.  Note Caleb said "We are well able", but the majority said, "We are not able". They were thinking as man thinks, in his own power and strength.  They had rejected (again) the truth of the Word of God AND His promises and denied His power.  Many times a majority gets it wrong because they do not believe the words of God.

Where are we in this today?  Do we see the promises that God has made to us through Jesus and agree that they are good; but fail to enter into obtaining the benefits of being disciples of Him because we really are afraid to believe because we are thinking in the realm of man, but not in the power of God?  Have we been afraid of the many woke giants in our land so as not to think God can defeat them if we listen to Him and not man?

So this is where Numbers 14 comes in as our example.

"11 Then the Lord said to Moses: “How long will these people reject Me? And how long will they not believe Me, with all the signs which I have performed among them? 12 I will strike them with the pestilence and disinherit them, and I will make of you a nation greater and mightier than they.”

Isn't that amazing! How could these people see numerous miracles and still reject what God declares because of their unbelief?  Easy.  We do it today, even in the Church.  I do it.  I can get into a valley after seeing God's miracles he did in two healings and despair when a new disease comes up.  Unless we stay grounded in His word and believe it instead of what we perceive; it can happen.  But these things today are; out of this world.

 People listen to a small group of people who scream the loudest and intimidate in their woke anti-God agendas and manipulate people into believing their many times literal; stupidity.  There is no other way to put it.  To say that there are many genders which goes against all biology is... stupid.  To say that a highway that was built is "racist", as the Secretary of Transportation Buttigieg said is... stupid.  To say that climate change is caused by racism (Al Gore and Jane Fonda) and is the reason for illegal's streaming to America (Gore) is... stupid. To say that there is no God and I can do what I want is... really stupid.  "Stupid" and "foolish" is what God called his rebellious people (Jeremiah 4:22). It is ultimately demonic. But God eventually gave them over to their evil ways and does today.

Paul said in Romans 1

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness,]maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. Romans 1: 28-32

God said to Israel, Since you have rejected Me, I will give your minds over to the evil you asked for. AND, it will not go well for you.  I must ask; are things going well in America today?

Now back to Israel and Moses.

Moses interceded for these rebellious people and replied to God;

"19 Pardon the iniquity of this people, I pray, according to the greatness of Your mercy, just as You have forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.”

20 Then the Lord said: “I have pardoned, according to your word; 21 but truly, as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord 22 because all these men who have seen My glory and the signs which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have put Me to the test now these ten times, and have not heeded My voice, 23 they certainly shall not see the land of which I swore to their fathers, nor shall any of those who rejected Me see it. 24 But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed Me \, I will bring into the land where he went, and his descendants shall inherit it.

These people, who were called by His Name (2 Chronicles 7:14, Isaiah 65:1, Jeremiah 7:10 and others) had also violated the Third Commandment which says,

“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.  Exodus 20:7

So, while being called by His Name which was upon them in which they were to show God's reputation, fame, and glory to the world, it was all in vain when they reached the Promised Land.  The fact that they had His Name, was now worthless and empty because of their unbelief.  They trusted in the falsehood of the majority of the spies.  It was false, because their assessment went against a command of God, and a promise of God. It was the voice of Satan to Eve:  "Indeed hath God said.."

To illustrate, Jesus said this to the unbelieving Pharisees,

"7 Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:

‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me.

And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ ”  Matthew 15:7-9

Hosea would later prophecy concerning this in the future.  He said,

11 Ephraim is oppressed and broken in judgment, Because he willingly walked by human precept.  Hosea 5:11

Such it is today.

Obey God, Not Man

We do the same today in willingly walking by human command and as a result, have become oppressed.  With the Covid shutdowns, many churches trusted and followed man and not God; thus kept their doors closed.  This was what the evil leaders and Satan wanted.  But it was not what God commanded.  These government leaders chose instead to have all of the things that oppose God to remain open; porn shops, marijuana shops, and alcohol stores.  They called them "essential". They in fact, spit in God's face, and many churches did nothing to counter them; thus as with Ephraim, the oppression continued.  Many churches and well known Christian personalities, promoted and pushed people to obey the government, stay closed, and get the jab.  Some churches even opened their buildings to the health system to accomplish this.  These false teachers twisted scripture to make it seem like it was a "godly" and loving thing to do.  It was "godly" to obey the government.  This is not entirely true.  The Church is not supposed to follow government "mandates" when they oppose God's commands.  Scripture shows a number of examples.

For instance,

-The government and the apostate religious leaders of Israel and Judah told the prophets to shut up.  God told them not to be afraid of them but to continue to warn them even though they would not listen.  Their words from God exist today. 

-The Jewish midwives in Egypt refused to obey the command of Pharaoh to kill all the male children and thus was Moses spared to bring the Israelites out of Egypt and God dealt well with these women (Exodus 1:15-20).

-Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, captive Jews who worked for the evil Babylonian government, refused to give homage to an image that King Nebuchadnezzar commanded them to do.  They were put in a furnace to be burned, but saved by God. Thus, this King saw the power of God (Daniel 3).

-Daniel refused to obey the orders of the Mede King Darius who was deceived and manipulated by apostate Jews to make an order not to pray to any god, but only to Darius for just 30 days so that Daniel might be arrested.  Daniel did not obey this evil command and was arrested and put in a lion's den, but saved by God before this King and people (Daniel 6)

-On His entry into Jerusalem on a donkey, Jesus was told by the religious leaders to tell the people who were praising him to be quiet, like the government told the churches they could not sing in gatherings (Satan hates God being praised).  But Jesus told these leaders that if they were to be quiet, the rocks would cry out (Luke 19:40).  Government has no authority over man in the realm of God's kingdom and commands.

-Paul, when told by the the High Priest to not teach Jesus, told the High Priest that they must obey God rather than man (Acts 5:26-38).

-In Revelation, the people who are alive during the Tribulation who will recognize that the world leader is the anti-Christ, will refuse a world government command to worship this demonic being.  They will be killed, but end up in heaven. But... those who follow this demonic command will be tortured in their bodies while alive because of this mark, then die in their sins and end up in hell with the devil, the anti-Christ, and his false prophet (Revelation 13, 16:1-2, 19:19-21, 20:11-15)

Many Churches Follow The Sins Of Israel And Become Like The World

As seen in prior messages, many churches have fallen into the culture's desire for things that oppose God's word such as promoting, engaging in and approving the homosexual / transgender life.  They have, as Paul warned, fallen away from the faith because of listening to, and adopting these and many other "doctrines of devils" (1 Timothy 4:1.)  Instead of listening to truth, they prefer to "itching ears" and prefer lies and not reality (Isaiah 30:9-17).  Like Israel, these no longer have faith in God, but rebelled to following demons instead.  Paul said of these who have fallen from the faith (which is in Jesus) in 1 Timothy 1:5;

speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron...

But for Israel back then, their lack of obeying and trusting God meant a set back of 40 years before God would bring them back to the border of Canaan.  And those who did not believe and obey His command as he told them, all died in the wilderness without receiving the promises.  Why would a person refuse a command to receive good things from God?  People still do; all the time.  Unbelief prevents a lot of things for us God promised in this life.  Too many think that once you "say the prayer" become "born again", the next stop is heaven with nothing between the two.

God said He would be glorified on the earth.  Israel was set apart to glorify God; and God gave them the path, power and authority to do so (Luke 10:17-19).  However, their unbelief caused them to not glorify God, rebel, and thus miss out on His promises in Canaan.  This is so much as the "Church" does today which is also set apart to glorify God and become active disciples.

While the above verses in Numbers 14 refer to the unbelief and rebellion before Israel entered Canaan, it was only a short time after entering Canaan that their apostasies resumed.  We have to read 1 and 2 Kings and 1 and 2 Chronicles as well as the Prophets to see the details of what was going on back then and a detail of their apostasies.  I am only able to cover a few key ones here.

So after a few hundred years of warnings by the prophets that if they did not repent of the evilness they were in as a result of becoming as an unfaithful wife to God, God would bring destruction on them.  But, they did not listen. Little by little they had started assimilating the cultures and gods of the nations they were to defeat and glorify God along the way.  But....

Psalm 106:34-39 says

They did not destroy the peoples,
Concerning whom the Lord had commanded them,
35 But they mingled with the Gentiles and learned their works;
36 They served their idols, which became a snare to them.
37 They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons,
38 And shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;
And the land was polluted with blood.
39 Thus they
were defiled by their own works, and played the harlot by their own deeds."

So instead of conquering the nations and glorifying God before Him as a people separated to Him, they instead became like them.  They learned their culture, their gods, their works, and incorporated them into their own society and religion. They sacrificed their children to the demon God Molech as is done today with abortion and all this transgender mutilation. Then they replaced the glory of the living God to following and doing the works of secular nations and their religions.  It would seem that you could not tell the difference between the secular people of the nations to that of the people of God.  They were "one" with the secular world and in adopting the pagan religious practices as many churches have done today; they became like them.  It destroyed them as seen in Romans 1. It was a recipe for disaster then; and it is so now.

God warned Judah and Jerusalem of this in Zephaniah 1:8

"“And it shall be,In the day of the Lord’s sacrifice,
That I will punish the princes and the king’s children,
And all such as are clothed with foreign apparel.

This first "church" had taken on the identifying marks of the world.  And this is one of the signs of impending destruction today.

Israel's Apostasy Describes The Sins Of The Nations They Assimilated

In the Scriptures, judgment came upon both Israel and Judah (first), and then the nations.  So it is to be in the last days.  Thus this message endeavors to combine the signs of apostasy that indicate the reality of a coming judgment to what is called the "Church" today, and to secular America. Now it should be noted that this judgment does not leave out the Church as a whole in the entire world, nor the whole world itself receiving judgment.  But this message is a message to America; both to the Church, and to the secular world.  So here we go.

As I have noted a number of times, after Israel had come into the land of Canaan, over time, Israel had donned on all of the world around them so as to look like them.  They had lost their identity as the people of God, and thus lost any benefits and power and attributes that showed they were the people of God.  They rejected God and as a result became as lewd, corrupt, unjust, unloving, and demonic as the nations around them.  In fact, God said Israel and Judah had become even worse than the pagan nations they borrowed from (Ezekiel 5:6-17).  That is sad, but continues to today.

Sam Smith and Petras perform "Unholy" at 2023 Grammys
sam smith petras award
Petras and Sam Smith accepting Grammy award for demonic song.

Last week was the 65th Grammy Awards where the music industry gathers to congratulate each other and award what are referred to as the "best" of these entertainers for the past year.  It was so demonic.  Two of the recipients of Grammys was a homosexual man by the name of Sam Smith and his transgender singing partner "Petras".  When Petras received his award he noted that he was the first transgender (to female) who had received a Grammy.  The audience smiled and applauded in joy.

Then these two performed one of their "hit" songs called "Unholy".  It was very sexual and demonic, having a Satanic theme and all of the participants dressed in red with Smith wearing a red hat with horns and Petras in a cage.  After it was over the crowd again gave a hearty applause.  Right after the performance the show went to commercial noting that it was sponsored by Pfizer, a most corrupt pharmaceutical company that made a Covid jab and now openly sponsors the demonic, which they are part of anyway.

How is it that as seen in "The Days of Lot" article that numerous churches support the lifestyle of these two performers.

Sadly, Christian musicians and songwriters aslo participate in this defiled industry event too.  Some of those who received awards in the so called "Christian" categories included Elevation Worship, and from the Bethel owned people, Chris Tomlin, Jason Ingram, Phil Wickham, and Bethel's senior pastor's son and daughter-in-law, Brian and Jenn Johnson.  With the exception of Elevation, all of these perform and write under the Bethel Music label.  There were many more.  Neither church is following God, but another spirit.

Paul warned the Corinthians,

14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:

“I will dwell in them And walk among them.
I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”

17 ThereforeCome out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.”


Israel's Apostasy Is A Warning To The Church

Now understand that the messages to the Corinthians were Paul's warning to the Church; don't do what Israel and Judah did!  But it would appear that much of the Church today has, like Israel did,  "mingled with the nations" and adapts to, and does what the culture does as noted previously.  Much of the "Church" has become  "woke" (spiritually, thus mentally off); all encompassing, anything goes, apart-from-God groups of people.  And this also gives us a look into what the world of Canaan was that that Israel joined in.  God would first judge Israel and Judah (His first "Church"), then the nations.  This judgment would begin in His own house, but at the same time, sparing His own right before that final judgment (Ezekiel 9:6) as it will, and is being done in these last days.

1 Peter 4:17-18 says,

17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?

18 Now, If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and sinner appear?"

It is interesting that the book of Revelation, through Jesus' message to John, begins with warnings of judgment to five of the seven churches unless they repent of their apostasy formed sins. But Jesus saves the church of Philadelphia from being part of the the final judgment of the entire world via the Rapture, or taking those up to Him who have held on and have not denied the Name of Jesus.  First the church, then the nations as is the order in the book of Revelation. Like with Israel, God is revealing the sins of these five churches and giving them opportunity to change at this very time.  If not, Jesus warns of the judgments against each one of them.

At the end of Revelation chapter 3, Jesus is finished speaking to and warning five of the churches.  Jesus declared that only one church (a remnant) will be removed from being in this coming Tribulation.  Revelation chapter 4 begins after the Church is gone, and starts a new phase on earth.  It begins as John said,

"After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter."  Revelation 4:1

Now, after the apostate churches are warned, and the one church is gone, taken up, in Revelation 4:1 Jesus takes John up to heaven and then shows him what is to transpire after the end of the Church age (hereafter), when those in the realm of this church of Philadelphia are gone from the earth.  Then Jesus starts to reveal the judgments against the entire world.  When that little remnant of light is out of the world, the darkness comes in like a flood.  Now back to Scripture.

Israel and Judah were warned many times by the prophets over and over, beginning around 150 years before the Assyrians destroyed Israel, and before Babylon destroyed Jerusalem and took Judah into captivity.

Isaiah started warning them by the Spirit of God at that time, long before judgment came.  So they had plenty of warning.  But they mocked Isaiah and ended up killing him after over 40 years of prophesying to them. Jeremiah also prophesied the warnings and was imprisoned for awhile because he would not stop warning and was actually taken captive by the Babylonians but later set free.  Yet even though Babylon had by then had come to take over Jerusalem, most of these people still did not take the warnings seriously and did not listen to Jeremiah.

Israel's apostasy and even their judgment was observed by Judah.  But the Word tells us that despite this, Judah become even more wicked than Israel. Then, even though Judah was taken captive, they still believed that God was on their side and that Babylon overtaking them was just a temporary thing and that Babylon would go away.  How sad that during this time, Judah went to Egypt (the world for us) and asked them for military help, but not to God.  So much reliance on man they had, and even reliance on those who had kept them in bondage (Egypt) for over 400 years.  Yet, even during their receiving the judgment, God still offered outs for them.  But it still got worse.

Even In Captivity They Didn't Get It

Now we go to the Prophet Ezekiel.  Ezekiel was commissioned by God to prophecy to those who went into captivity in the first wave and attack by the King of Babylon on Jerusalem.  So the next scene in this article has to do with some of the Elders who are in captivity who came to Ezekiel get a word from God concerning their future.  It begins in Ezekiel 20.

"It came to pass in the seventh year, in the fifth month, on the tenth day of the month, that certain of the elders of Israel came to inquire of the Lord, and sat before me. Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, speak to the elders of Israel, and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Have you come to inquire of Me? As I live,” says the Lord God, “I will not be inquired of by you.” ’ Will you judge them, son of man, will you judge them? Then make known to them the abominations of their fathers."  Ezekiel 20:1-4

So in the next verses, Ezekiel gives these elders a list of their rebellions since they had been in Egypt.  Basically is was that, even though they were supposed to be the people of God, they still held on to the gods and idols of Egypt.  Instead of making the true God the Lord of their lives, they held on to the ways of their apostate fathers in the land of Canaan.  And this was even AFTER going into captivity!  They still did not get it.  It was like God was saying, "You've got to be kidding!  Can't you see why all these things happened?"

After many verses of showing them their folly God said to these elders

"30 Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Are you defiling yourselves in the manner of your fathers, and committing harlotry according to their abominations? 31 For when you offer your gifts and make your sons pass through the fire, you defile yourselves with all your idols, even to this day. So shall I be inquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live,” says the Lord God, “I will not be inquired of by you. 32 What you have in your mind shall never be, when you say, ‘We will be like the Gentiles, like the families in other countries, serving wood and stone.’" Ezekiel 20:30-32

In other words, Israel, God said, you are doing the same things your fathers did, so surely I am not going to even hear you.  You may say you will be like the world, in opposition to Me, and think you can still pray to Me; but that is not going to happen. Why? Because God would judge them for doing that.  They were to be separate in order to glorify God.  But instead, they profaned his name as seen in Ezekiel 36:16-23.  It is way beyond time for the Church to wake up and take God seriously today.  For a great majority of the Church has done the same today.  How can a people pray to God in this time and think He will answer while they approve of, and engage in the sins of Sodom and many other abominations?

The Sins Of Israel That Brought Judgment Are God's Admonition For The Church And World Today

As we look at the sins of Israel that brought about their judgment and destruction, remember they had thought they could be engaged with other gods and worship the true God at the same time.  As noted, they incorporated the world into their lives and became like them.  God called them "rebellious" by rejecting Him, for their trust in the world and to think they can have it both ways. So as we look at the sins of Israel and Judah we get a glimpse of what the nations around them were like.  And this is where we see the similarities between then, and the signs of the times and events of today; especially what has transpired in America the past few years.  Without God there is every form of evil.

As I said previously, I can only highlight some of the sins that Israel was engaged in so as to get the point and warning across.  Each of you need to read all the books of the Prophets and of both Kings and Chronicles to see the multitude of apostasies both Israel and Judah were engaged in that brought them down and see we have become the same today.  Here are just some.

Israel Perverted Justice

No one calls for justice, Nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.  Isaiah 59:4

The way of peace they have not known, And there is no justice in their ways; They have made themselves crooked paths;
Whoever takes that way shall not know peace.  Isaiah 59:8

Habakkuk cried out to God and said,

O Lord, how long shall I cry, And You will not hear? Even cry out to You, “Violence!” And You will not save.

Why do You show me iniquity, And cause me to see
[b]trouble? For plundering and violence are before me; There is strife, and contention arises.

Therefore the law is powerless, And justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; Therefore perverse judgment proceeds.
  Habakkuk 1:1-4

Justice in Israel had become perverted and the law was no longer good, nor followed.  It is such in America today.  This can be seen in the events within the government of the United States over the past six years which God has revealed and continues to reveal daily now in rapid succession.  The revealing of this perverse justice came about at the beginning of the announcement that Donald Trump would be a candidate for President of the United States.  Right away corrupt elements of the Department of "Justice" showed how unjust, untruthful, corrupt and sinful they really are.

Corrupt higher members of the FBI, CIA, Attorney General's office, members of Congress, Hillary Clinton and unseen others associated with the Obama administration set out to "conceive evil" and "speak lies" about Donald Trump for the purpose of making sure he did not get elected.  This, as has come out recently, was done in collusion with Big Tech and the media.  As is being revealed today, they attempted interfered in the 2016 election.   It didn't work.  But after Trump got elected the fabrications and lies continued with the introduction of false documents which were the basis of the attempt to impeach the then, President Trump.  While knowing the document was false, the FBI introduced it as probable cause for an illegal warrant to spy on Trump and supporters.  A two year investigation by a former head of the FBI as a "Special Counsel" revealed nothing.  They could not find any wrong doing by Trump, so they went after his supporters and arrested many of them on whatever charges they could find.  But they did not stop.

The two subsequent Congressional impeachment hearings revealed that there are members of Congress and others in the Federal government and the now observed injustice of the "Justice" Department that have no problem in lying.  Even after they have been caught in their lies, they continue to lie as to ignore the truth.  These, in effect, believe they are untouchable.  And so far, they have been.  While they perverted justice, they themselves, while committing crimes, were not brought up to accountability for them.  So, they still operate with that same arrogance today.  t happened again in the 2020 elections as has been revealed recently.  But.. as we will see, they will be brought to justice by God unless they turn away from their evils and turn to God.  I

The so called "January 6th Committee" was formed, they said, in order to find out what happened that allowed the riot to happen.  But it was apparent that it was only an attempt to blame President Trump for the Capitol riots of which these public servants called an "Insurrection".  I didn't even see a pitchfork among the masses.  The only person who was killed was an unarmed woman, a former member of the Air Force, shot by a Capitol Police officer.  What is interesting is that this officer, who is black, shot an unarmed white woman. Yet, no investigation of this was done; not even by the "committee", while in a lot of other incidents, white police officers shot black men (some unarmed, some armed) and violent destructive riots broke out in many cities of which many Federal and local government officials approved of.

The structure of committee itself was a perversion of justice as there were only the accusers on it but no defense to cross examine the "witnesses". That was a recipe for corruption.  Even some of the corrupt Congressional liars on the Trump impeachment committee were part of this one.  And recently at the writing of this message on January 6, 2023, a Congressional Democrat by the name of Hakim Jeffries, who was bidding for being elected the Speaker of the House, lied at a memorial service on this day by saying that five Capitol Police officers died in the riot.

Then, in this time of my long progressive writing this message (January 12, 2023), it was revealed that in November 2022, just prior to the mid term elections, that some classified documents were found in Joe Biden's Penn Biden Center office.  The center itself is problematic because it is of the University Of Pennsylvania who has ties with China in people and funding.  Too long and complicated to get into here.  So this was hidden from the media and public until a few days ago when it came out.  Then, the following day it came out that more classified documents were found in a garage and another room and Biden's private residence in Delaware.  And again, kept secret until now, as these were discovered in December 2022.  And yet again, just one day later, more documents were discovered in Biden's residence.

And as of the week of January 15, it was discovered that former Vice President Pence also has classified documents at his house.

There is much more on these things, but enough for now.  Justice at the highest level was exposed as perverted and corrupt.  But they still continue on in their agenda.

This perverted justice filtered down to the states and counties with the election of prosecutors that give favor to the criminals, but not to the victims.  Some of these are alleged to be financed by the anti-American, George Soros. These officials changed bail policies to allow criminals to go back out on the streets without any bail so as to commit more crimes. And many police department changed their policies to not arrest people for certain crimes. This failure to hold people accountable for their crimes embolden many which started a trend of gangs going into stores and stealing what they want without the threat of arrest or even being stopped in the act.  This has resulted in many losing their businesses and large chain stores and restaurants to close in many areas.

God said this of what was going on with the leaders of Israel and which is going on today;

2 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.  Micah 2:2

It is calculated, planned, and executed by those who are in power and are empowered to carry these evils out.

Engaged In Bribery

12 In you they take bribes to shed blood; you take usury and increase; you have made profit from your neighbors by extortion, and have forgotten Me,” says the Lord God.  Ezekiel 22:12

There was dishonesty in Israel's leadership and business.  Bribery is not an uncommon thing today in the corrupt world of government and business.  It can even be present in what are called "Lobbyists"; those in the business world, organizations and others who seek to influence members of the Senate and Congress for legislation to benefit their agendas.  Kind of a tolerated bribery.  ALL of those in these positions are engaged with them as this is how they are financed for their elections.  It is an issue between the Pharmaceutical companies and those in the U.S. government health system that are supposed to regulate them; like the FDA, and NIH.

For example, yesterday (January 26, 2023) I saw a video of the Pfizer Director of Research and Development, Strategic Operations being secretly recorded in a Project Veritas sting in which he said, among other disturbing revelations, that government pharma regulators are promised after-retirement-jobs if they will tone down regulations for Pfizer.  Information on this can be seen (if still up) at and

Then there is the issue with probable connections between Biden, his son, and other members of government in both Democrat and Republican parties that are believed to be influenced by Chinese and Ukrainian money.  Many interesting seductive activities being done by China of which many are ignored (unless the government get caught, like the Chinese spy balloon sighted by a civilian.  Opps!

Violence In The Land And In Jerusalem

23 ‘Make a chain, For the land is filled with crimes of blood, And the city is full of violence. Ezekiel 7:23

17 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.

18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them."  Ezekiel 8:17-23

In 2020 the then Senator (now Vice President) Kamala Harris encouraged the rioting by the violent Black Lives Matters rioters when she said on national TV, "“Everyone, beware. [Protestors] are not going to stop before Election Day in November and they’re not going to stop after Election Day,” Harris added that “they should not” and “we should not.” the violence continued resulting in millions of dollars of damage to businesses and loss of life.  Nothing was done to stop any of it.

As I noted in another article, in those cities such as Portland, OR, riots went on for months without people being prosecuted.  Neither the Mayor, nor Governor, nor police made any substantial moves to stop it and police were told to stand down.  Sections of Minneapolis were burned down and still not restored. Thus evil was embolden and empowered.  Chicago and New York are well known "Bloody" cities.  In Chicago shootings abound.  Many children are killed, but nothing is done.  It is the same in New York City and the State.  Actually, many of these larger cities display the violence of 3rd world countries with violence and people living on the streets like it is some poor part of a city in India.  Serious juvenile crimes and crimes of violence are way up and in many places, out of control.

A few weeks ago a Georgia State Trooper was shot by a young Antifa associate after the police went into remove them from an area they had taken over so as to stop the building of a police training center.  The shooter was killed and the rest of these 20+ something people were arrested on terrorism charges.  These young terrorists then called for violence against police and anyone who supports them (which is most of the people).  During the 2020 rioting of these Antifa groups, Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler said there was no such thing as Antifa.  Last week in a Congressional hearing on the Border, he also said there was no problem at the border.  This was after hearing from law enforcement that lives there that there IS!

The entertainment media even display demonic evils on television with shows such as "Road Wars", "Neighborhood Wars, and "Customer Wars".  This is a display of chaos in a society that has rejected God.  And we are supposed to be entertained by it.  The prophetic decline of society as seen in America certainly is displayed here.

Open Border Chaos & Violence

In alignment with the precepts of the World Economic Forum's "One World" no borders global society, the Biden Administration has opened the southern border with Mexico.  In doing so they have given approval to the Mexican drug cartels in the human and sex trafficking of people from other countries who through forced payments and violence, bring them to the border.  It is said that the cartels make billions a year in this human trafficking alone.  Then there are the drugs they smuggle in of which Fentanyl has taken over as the main drug alleged to being supplied by the Chinese.  Many die from this drug; but this administration does not care and claims there is no problems as Nadler did.

Even Border Patrol agents say that the cartels control the border, not the United States.  But Biden and his Homeland Security Czar deny that the border is open; snubbing the intelligence of the American people and those who suffer from the criminal activity from illegal aliens at the border.  These cartels are ISIS like terrorists of extraordinary demented minds of cruel evil.  They, like many of other criminal elements, have crossed the border and now operate inside the United States without impunity as it seems.

All of these things are allowed on purpose so as to fulfill their demonic agenda.  But it is also fulfilling God's agenda in early warnings of what is shortly coming.

Suppression Of Truth

Israel had come to the point of rebellion that they opposed anyone who tried to speak truth.  God said in Isaiah 30:9-11

That this is a rebellious people, Lying children, Children who will not hear the law of the Lord;
10 Who say to the seers, “Do not see,” And to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us right things; Speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits.
11 Get out of the way, Turn aside from the path, Cause the Holy One of Israel To cease from before us.”

In other words, the people told the prophets, "we only want to hear what WE want to hear"  "Tell us things that will make us feel good; just don't speak truth".  They, like today, only want to hear what they agree on; and lies are ok as long as they are acceptable to us.

God said in Jeremiah 5:30-31

'30 “An astonishing and horrible thing Has been committed in the land: 31 The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule by their own power; And My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?"

There was only one "truth" allowed, and that was those utterances of the ruling priests over the people.  Only the lying prophets were allowed, not any opposing words.  It is the same today and it goes beyond the word of God to encompass shutting down any speech that does not fit a government  sanctioned narrative or a narrative that opposes the demonic cultural ways of today like abortion and homosexuality and the health system.

We have known for a long time that the big social media companies such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter have been suppressing many things that these deem not in compliance with their global agendas.   These would be things like opposing views on Covid and the jab, and suppressing information on Hunter Biden's laptop.  However we recently have seen through what has been called the "Twitter Files", that it has been the federal government, mainly the upper officials of FBI, who have been telling Twitter what and who to remove.  Even beyond this revelation, FBI head, Christopher Wray, was an invited speaker to the evil World Economic Forum. During his panel talk, he actually boasted how the FBI has been working with social media companies and how they have been cooperating with the FBI. (This is sad because there are many honest members of this organization).

Many other government and former government elected and non elected officials were in attendance at the WEF.  None of these can deny the demonic goal of the WEF in attempting to destroy America for the benefit of the WEF's New World Order.  Many, but not all were Democrats.  There were at least three current Republican lawmakers in attendance as well as former Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan.  Ryan, by the way, is on the Board of Directors for Fox News.

The Alignment Of With Evil

Then end game with this Administration's alliance with the WEF is bringing about what we see today; the purposeful destruction of the American economy, and our well being, safety from enemies without and within, runaway criminal activity, and freedom as a sovereign nation.  There are a number of news anchors on a couple of cable TV networks that see this and have sounded the alarm on the plan of of the WEF.  However, what is lacking from their speaking of it is the demonic spiritual aspects of it as seen in the prophetical books of the Bible.  They cannot connect the two because of their lack of knowledge of God's word.

Why Is All This Evil Happening Here?

When look at the many evil things this Democratic / Liberal administration stands for and promotes, it shows that it loves the evil of things such as abortion, homosexuality, transgender and child mutilation, stealing the minds and bodies of our children through the corrupt education system, tolerating criminals / violence, tolerating corruption and suppression of our freedoms, tolerating submitting our nation to the anti-Christ WEF; we have to ask, what does all of this show us about our nation?

It is a sad revelation that God has brought out in the open in that over half of this nation voted for a President who adamantly supports these things evil things.  This was again seen in the mid term elections last November.  Republican prognosticators declared there would be a "red wave" of voting in Republicans to many government offices, including the Congress and Senate.  But it didn't happen in that way.  Again, about half of the nation voted for people who are pro abortion, pro homosexuality, pro transgender, pro stealing the minds and even the bodies of our children by the education system in some schools and the rest of the evils they continue to conjure up.

This is an indication of at least half the nation being is being like Israel and the nations around them that have rebelled against God.  But this does not mean that the other half that did not vote along these lines are Christians either.  Being a "Conservative" does not make one a Christian.

Republicans / Conservatives Also Contribute To The Apostate Population And Judgments

For example, there was a recent documentary called "Propaganda Exposed" that came out in which Robert Kennedy Jr, Roger Stone and others.  It did a good job exposing and warning the public about the dangers of the Covid jab and corruption of the health system.  Some of it had what would appear to be religious connotations to it, appearing to be Christian.  However, when looking into the panel of speakers, many of them, including the host, Del Bigtree, I found they are associated with New Age thinking and organizations.  Some are actually into witchcraft.  Each on the panel has their own websites in which they peddle their alternative New Age solutions for Covid.

QAnon is another example of a Conservative entity (ies) / movement that may speak "Christanese" and display a form of godliness (2 Timothy 3:5) and quote some Bible verses in some of its website declarations.   But after researching their database, I found that at the heart, this entity says that there are three "saviors"; Trump, the military, and mankind.  It may be Conservative, but not Christian, but more New Age.  These utterances are serious idolatry.

There is nothing wrong with being a patriot, but our first allegiance is to God.  Some day being a "patriot" will mean being a patriot of the World, not of our country.

QAnon had followers depending on Trump, the military, and man in general to save America from its adversaries within.  God is not impressed with man, nor armies, especially those of nations who have rejected Him; like ours.  King Hezekiah of Judah had done many reforms to take the people away from their false worship and back to the true worship of God.  When the evil king of Assyria put a siege around Jerusalem with an army of 185,000 and scared the people, Hezekiah said,

"8 With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah."  2 Chronicles 32:8

We are not supposed depend on an "arm of the flesh" like the world does today and as Q referred to as one of our "saviors".  We are in a spiritual battle which an "arm of the flesh" does no good.

God said in Isaiah 31:1

"Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the Lord!"

And the Psalmist said in Psalm 20:7

"Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God."

An old hymn written in 1834 by a Baptist pastor in London came to mind as I compiled this message.  It is called ""On Christ, the Solid Rock I Stand" and others. It speaks to me even now as another issue is before me as well as what is going on today.  My favorite rendition of it was done in 1981 by Benny Hestor.  Here is a link you can copy and paste to listen.   It says,

1 My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand.

2 In every rough and stormy gale,
my anchor holds within the vale.
When all around my soul gives way,
he then is all my hope and stay. [Refrain]

3 Not earth, nor hell, my soul can move;
I rest upon unchanging love.
I trust his righteous character,
his counsel, promise, and his power. [Refrain]

4 When he shall come with trumpet sound,
oh, may I then in Him be found,
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
faultless to stand before the throne. [Refrain]

But back to Trump. I watched his speech last year announcing that he was going to run for President in 2024.  It was very Presidential and full of good promises to restore everything that Biden had removed that is destroying this country.  It had a major issue though.  He left God out of the equation.  This is a problem he had while President.  He boasted more in his accomplishments so much that he was sounding more like Nebuchadnezzar's "look what I have built".  That is, and maybe was, a good way to be removed from Office.

God said,

"I am the Lord, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images."  Isaiah 42:8

And again in Isaiah 43

11 I, even I, am the Lord, And besides Me there is no savior.

I have declared and saved,
I have proclaimed, And there was no foreign god among you; Therefore you are My witnesses,”
Says the Lord, “that I am God.

13 Indeed before the day was, I am He; And there is no one who can deliver out of My hand; I work, and who will reverse it?”

There is also another scripture that is revealing on those wealthy who would think highly of themselves to the point of idolatry.  Psalms 49:10-11 says,

"For he sees wise men die; Likewise the fool and the senseless person perish,
And leave their wealth to others.

11 Their inner thought is that their houses will last forever, Their dwelling places to all generations;
They call their lands after their own names."

According to various online sources, Trump has about 500 worldwide properties of which about 250 are named after himself.  It is not good to put God secondary.

Trump was also responsible for bringing about the jab and elevating Fauci to the power he has.  And speaking the jab, he is still promoting it today and has said people should "embrace it" (Donald Trump Supporters Turn on Him Over Vaccine Defense—'Sold Out So Hard', Newsweek Jan 17, 2023

While Trump did a lot to improve relations between the United States and Israel, he did not do them or us an favors with God when he and his son-in-law Jared Kushner suggested a two state solution with Israel and what is called Palestine.  Biden also wants to do this. It would divide parts of Israel and Jerusalem between Israel and that which is called Palestine.  Man cannot divide that which actually belongs to God who gave it to Israel (Genesis 13:14-7)  This opposes God and actually gave a prophetical warning about it in Joel 3.  God specifically said,

"I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land.  Joel 3:2 (see Zechariah 12:2-3)

Then another revelation comes to light reducing any assumption that "Republican" is synonymous with being a Christian and that Republicans in control will stop any evil on this country.  On December 16, 2022 Trump hosted an event by the pro LGTBQ Republican organization called the "Log Cabin Republicans" at Mar a lago.  This organization's purpose according to their site says in part, "LGBT Republicans and straight allies have chosen to transform the GOP from the inside, working to overcome the forces of exclusion and intolerance". (

At this event Trump said,

"“We are fighting for the gay community, and we are fighting and fighting hard,” Donald Trump told a Log Cabin Republicans gala." "With the help of many of the people here tonight in recent years, our movement has taken incredible strides, the strides you’ve made here is incredible.” Political

Wait a minute here!  Did Trump say that the gay agenda is "our" movement?  Then Trump must be of one accord with them.

The prophet Amos rightly noted,

"Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?"  Amos 3:3

And again as seen previously Paul admonished the Corinthians by saying,

"14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what [d]fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?   2 Corinthians 6:14-15

According to the same article in Politico, 71% of Americans support legal homosexual marriages and that 55% of Republicans also support it.  So it is apparent that 71% of Americans do not know the Word of God; and it is only on this one issue!

Also in attendance at this event was Arizona Governor candidate, Kari Lake.  Recall that Lake said she is a Christian and that God had told her to run for Governor of Arizona.  She did not get enough votes to win.  I get no pleasure in this; more sadness. But at this event, during her speech about losing the election she said,

"“We just had such a huge movement going into Election Day, to watch these people — these evil bastards, can I say that here? To watch them steal this election in broad daylight, and if they think they’re going to get away with it, they messed with the wrong bitch,” she said to cheers." Ibid

Oh my!

In playing to this crowd of homosexuals Lake said (on video)

“Whoever thought it was a good idea to invite 500 gay people into a lavish mansion, 2 pools, and a lot of booze? I think we’re going to need the Secret Service tonight.…I know there’s people in this room who would love to be tackled and frisked by the Secret Service.”

We need to ask; is this something God honors, or is it an indication that the Conservative side is also contributing to the coming judgment just as the Liberal side it doing?

It seems to be somewhat clear that neither Trump nor Lake hold to Biblical Christianity.  But instead really do not understand what damage they are doing to those that are homosexual, and those whom would believe by their actions that homosexuality is alright before God.  It is not.  And as we saw in the previous article on "The Days of Lot", this behavior is bringing looming destruction to those who practice it, and to those who approve it.

Associations are telling as we have seen above in God's Word.  As noted in a previous article, Trump was associated with many false teachers that were called "Evangelicals", of the NAR while President.  Kari Lake, who also really has no idea of the difference between the profane and the holy, but profaned God in her above declarations and associations, was anointed with oil by NAR associated pastor, Tommy Barnett, of the mega church Dream City Church in Arizona.  This was done at what was called the "Freedom and Faith" concert in Scottsdale.  Barnett is a friend of NAR and Prosperity pastor, Brian Houston, the recently defrocked pastor of Hillsong.  Sean Feucht, worship leader at NAR and New Age church, Bethel Church, Redding, CA led the worship at this event.

To be sure, when Trump was President, he made good on his promises and did a lot of good things to benefit this country, economically, in foreign policy in dealing with the world's tyrants, our relationship with Israel (to a point), and in making our southern border more secure.  But these things were not to last.  God was not in the mix;  only in show.  Have you noticed that while Trump was in Office that Fox and Newsmax had all sorts of "Christian" celebrity pastors and others on; but you don't see any now?  That fad is gone.

A Them vs Us Lesson By Jesus To Joshua

So, we have this divide of good verses evil.  Maybe we should take a lesson from the encounter Joshua had with Jesus after Israel had crossed the Jordan and were to destroy Jericho.

Joshua, the new commander and great warrior of Israel sees a man with a sword drawn.  The account says

"And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, “Are You for us or for our adversaries?

14 So He said, “No, but as Commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.”

And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, “What does my Lord say to His servant?”  Joshua 5:13-14

Joshua asked the wrong question. Jesus answered "who are you for?" with a "No", a non answer.  He let Joshua know that HE is the commander of the Lord's Army and Joshua was just to follow Him.  In other words, who are you with.  Joshua submitted to Jesus and Israel took Jericho.  Perhaps we have the same ideas in our minds.  And as we look at the things that are transpiring on the Left and the Right, Conservative and Liberal, Republican and Democrat; God says, just follow MY commands and I will give you victory.

We Have Choices: Quit Trusting Man

So, God removed the short lived comfort we had.  I would say probably it was in part because the time of grace is about over for this nation to wake up and turn to God and His Son Jesus for His gift of salvation and to trust in Him and not in man.  And in part because people have replaced trust in God to trust in a man and a party.  It is time to recognize that, we, like Israel and Judah, have more faith in man and our devices, than in God.

When we look at all the examples in the Bible of what happened when people did this, it is evident it is happening now.  Back then, God removed the blessings he had promised and bestowed upon them.  He made it difficult for them so that there were no remedies from man.  He made it so difficult for them that when remedy came it was as God said many times, "Then you / they will know that I am God".  This was apparent in Israel in Egypt.  Only when it got bad for them did they cry out to God.  This was apparent when Israel was delivered by God, got comfortable, had peace, then turned away from God (again) in that short time of good things as seen in Judges 6.  It was only after God brought evil on them via the Midianites who constantly ruined their economy by stealing their produce and cattle that they cried out to God.  THEN and only then, did they have the insight that maybe they were in sin.  It is a pattern repeated many times.  And when their deliverance came, it wasn't by a massive military, it was supernaturally orchestrated using a small number of people (300 against 32,000)

An Oppressor Sent To America?

Today I believe we can look at Biden as the oppressor that was sent because we as a nation have rejected God.  For about half of the people of this country, they are reaping what they asked for in desiring to proceed with evil in this nation.  Yet still, God is again being been set aside for deliverance from the oppressors by people only having a form of godliness.  So we all receive of it; for now.

But God warned

Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.  Psalms 127:1

So as  we look at what is going on in America with all this evil, we should ask, "Has God removed his protection over America?  Has he said enough is enough? Is Biden and the rest of this group from the top to the bottom down to school boards in the beginning of judgments?   Is it in vain to warn this country of their apostasies if God turns his back?  But then what about the other side, you know, those who have good ideas, but are still opposing God?

To be sure, there appears to be an impending larger judgment and we are again, in God's mercy, only seeing a preview of it before the Tribulation Period.  Yet, it is in a human's makeup to ignore God and take command himself.  Never worked.

God's Merciful Warnings And Acts of Love

We see in Ezekiel 9, God preparing for the final destruction of Jerusalem.  In these verses we can see the spiritual battle behind the scenes as God is using his angels to prepare for the judgment coming in the form of the Babylonians.  Ezekiel 9 says,

"Then He called out in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, “Let those who have charge over the city draw near, each with a deadly weapon in his hand.” And suddenly six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his battle-ax in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen and had a writer’s inkhorn at his side. They went in and stood beside the bronze altar". vs 1-2

Five ready to destroy, but one who was different.

Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub, where it had been, to the threshold of the temple."And He called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer’s inkhorn at his side;

God had now left his dwelling on the Ark of the Covenant between the two cherub on the mercy seat.  But he paused at the threshold.  How sad it must have been; one more opportunity.  But now at this point, God calls out to the man clothed with linen who had the inkhorn.  This was Jesus.

 and the Lord said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.”

To "sigh" is the Hebrew word "anah" which means to groan in pain or grief.  "Cry", anaq, means languish and lamentation above the sighing.

There were some in Jerusalem, before God sent the Babylonians to destroy it, who mourned at their sin and the sins of the people in the city and Jesus put a mark on them to keep them from destruction.  About 400 years later, Jesus appeared on the scene again to Israel and spoke of the same need as these whom received His mark on their forehead and were spared.  He did this in his sermon on the mountain in Matthew 5. This was, and still is the requirement for being saved from judgment, a recognition of our state and a heart of repentance.  Jesus said to those on the mountain,

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the [a]earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.  Matthew 5:3-12

The majority of Jerusalem and Israel were just the opposite of this before the judgment and had none of the attributes above.  So after Jesus marked the remnant in Jerusalem God said to the other angels,

To the others He said in my hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity. Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the temple. Then He said to them, “Defile the temple, and fill the courts with the slain. Go out!” And they went out and killed in the city.

Again, I want to point out the pattern.  Rebelling against God which eventually brings judgment.  Judgment begins in God's house as we see in Ezekiel 9 and in the first 3 books of Revelation as God in His mercy warns five of the seven churches.  A good example of this happening as another merciful warning by God comes in the manner of Hillsong Church.    It came in the form of a long three part documentary called "Hillsong: A Mega Church Exposed".  The unfortunate thing is that this corrupt church and its leadership was exposed by a secular media company and not by Christians who still fail to see through it.

By their own admission, Hillsong used their well known and well followed worship band, Hillsong United, to lure people into becoming contributors to the billion dollar corporation and their New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) agenda.  Most churches around the world pay for and use their worship music during church services.  This fills the pockets of this "prosperity doctrine" teaching church through their music; thus leading people astray into their God opposing doctrine.  Brian Houston and his wife were removed as co-pastors of the church.

Paul said of these,

"Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern. 18 For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things.  Philippians 3:17-19

It is unfortunate that churches are the feeding trough that fills their belly.

 This documentary is available via Amazon, or to watch on Disney+ or other platforms.  Associated with Hillsong are Bethel Church, Bethel Music et al and those musicians they have incorporated, Elevation and others

By the way, it is the NAR who has a "Seven Mountain Mandate" they are supposed to conquer before their false apostles say Jesus is supposed to come back.  The churches, the government and the entertainment business are three of them on their list.

Jesus said in Matthew 7

17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them."  Matthew 7:17-20

Hillsong is a bad tree that cannot produce good fruit.  Their music was designed to allure us into their realm.  And it has.  But, as it says, "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire".  Judgment has began in God's house.  And so it will be with the other things the churches have gotten into.

A truly meaningful repentance and abiding in Jesus means receiving his mark, his Spirit, so as to be spared from the coming judgment of the Tribulation as seen in Revelation 3:7-13.  Once Jesus appears for His Church, and the believers are gone in an instant, the final judgments begin.

We Don't Have To Be Part of This Judgment

God is a God of love mercy and patience.  What we see happening now is just a precursor again, of what is coming.  It is another warning to quit trusting in man, follow his word and not the things of man.  God does not want anyone to perish, but to come to a saving knowledge of His Son Jesus and his taking our sins upon himself and in our place.  This includes all those who are bringing this evil upon us.  God said this world is passing away and that it is not the true home of the believer.  Believers are to have our eyes fixed on the return of Jesus to take us from this exceeding wicked place, not to hold on to it.

If this message has you questioning things then read below for an answer to how you may come to know God through His Son.

A Message To Those Who Don’t Know God and His Salvation

If you are not a believer, but you just might think that there is something to what you have read here, you may want to learn more. God does not want anyone to perish eternally, nor to even go through the Tribulation which is seven years of Hell on Earth. Here is a place to start to learn about the salvation that God has for you.  

The ABCs of Salvation

Some people think a personal relationship with God is something only theologians can comprehend. Actually, God’s plan of salvation is simple enough for everyone to understand. Here are the ABCs of salvation.


Admit to God that you are a sinner. All persons need salvation. Each of us has a problem the Bible calls sin. Sin is a refusal to acknowledge God’s authority over our lives. Everyone who does not live a life of perfect obedience to the Lord is guilty of sin. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23). Since none of us is perfect, all of us are sinners (Rom. 3:10-18).The result of sin is spiritual death (Rom. 6:23). Spiritual death means eternal separation from God. By God’s perfect standard we are guilty of sin and therefore subject to the punishment for sin, which is separation from God. Admitting that you are a sinner and separated from God is the first step of repentance, which is turning from sin and self and turning toward God.


Believe in Jesus Christ as God’s Son and receive Jesus’ gift of forgiveness from sin. God loves each of us. God offers us salvation. Although we have done nothing to deserve His love and salvation, God wants to save us. In the death of Jesus on the cross, God provided salvation for all who would repent of their sins and believe in Jesus. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).


Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to others. After you have received Jesus Christ into your life, share your decision with another person. Tell your pastor or a Christian friend about your decision.  If you do not go to church or have a pastor, ask God to lead you to a church that teaches truth and the gospel.  Following Christ’s example, ask for baptism by immersion in your church as a public expression of your faith. “If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved” (Rom. 10:9-10).

Then take the time to learn from, and of God.  Study the Bible.  Get a New King James, New American Standard, or a King James version to begin your study.  The first two are easier reading.  The King James has more word study materials with it but the old language may be a little harder to read.  It is not about going from Salvation to Heaven, but the path that God has set for each of us personally between those events.
