Will 2016 be our last year as a free nation? Will Obama revoke the next election and declare himself president for life? Is God using him to punish us for our sins? Will cities go up in flames of racial war? Are the voices who pronounce doom speaking the word of God?
What was the first thing Jesus said when asked about the end of the world? Matthew 24: 3, 4 says, “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.”
Terrorism and the dictatorship of Obama are looming disasters. But the threat of you being deceived–deceived by a false prophet is an equal disaster. A tsunami of lies and human opinion—being pawned off as words from the Lord—is crashing into the church. I am guessing that out of the current wave of “prophetic words” almost half are utterly false—generated by greed, anger, manipulation and arrogance.
The threat posed by false prophecy is greater than you know. If you follow a false prophet you will experience misery beyond anything you could have thought possible.
Most of the readers of our blog are referred to us from Facebook. In the last few days, Facebook has been a toxic waste dump site for every kind of half-baked, unscriptural prediction of 2016. Without missing a beat—you will see juxtaposed—predictions of untold blessing and favor along with total doom. We know that they both can’t be right.
So if you are ready for an honest-to-God conversation about 2016 then start by rejecting these two popular prophetic notions:
- America is blessed and no harm will come to her.
- America must be destroyed and there is nothing we can do about it.
No one in their right mind can possibly look at a holy God and tell him we are incapable of being destroyed. The nation of 70 million abortions—the leading exporter of porn—the nation that has erased God from every institution (including the church) cannot be destroyed?
We live in a cloud of misery and grief of our own making. God did not pick Obama, Americans did. The eyes of the average American are glazed over by despair and fatigue. Our children feel old and have little or nothing to look forward to. All of this is in direct proportion to our rejection of Christ.
Will Obama try to stay in office after 2017? Of course he will. The media will continue to esteem him as president. The liberal establishment has already proven they will follow him through the flames of perdition. Obama thrives on setting aside the constitution and daring congress to stop him.
“But we will throw him out!” I hear that a lot—but, if we were going to throw him out…wouldn’t we have done it after Benghazi and a thousand other impeachable offenses?
Obama has committed more crimes than all 43 previous presidents combined. If the congress has not been able to impeach him after all of this…what makes you think they can force him out of office?
Yes, America can be destroyed. Yes, this could very well be our last year as a free nation.
It is often said that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. The truth is that you knew what you had; you just never thought you would lose it. Thinking we could never lose America is fastest way to lose America.
On the other hand…setting your hope on America’s destruction is insanity. That Jehovah God has intervened—in American history when things look hopeless—is a centerpiece of our history.
I was just read again about the winter in Valley Forge where George Washington saw no way to hold the Continental army together. His men were starving and freezing to death. Farmers nearby wouldn’t feed the men who were fighting for their freedom. The farmers could get a better price for their crop from the British.
And yet they did hold on and defeated the greatest military in the world. In the depths of his despair Washington wrote to his friend about why he could hold the army together…He wrote “ I knew that heaven was in our cause.”
Heaven is in the cause of every pastor who reads this and says “my church will host a true revival.” Heaven is in the cause of every Christian who says “I will heed the warnings and obey the voice of God for there is yet one more miracle left for America.
The answer is clear: 2016 will not be our last year of freedom if the “people who know their God” will truly humble themselves beneath the mighty hand of God. He stands ready to release miracles beyond our comprehension…because heaven is in our cause.
