Thought:†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† To examine the thought of nations that turn from God to self
Scriptural Springboards:† Mat 5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. AND, Joh 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
It seems that the most useless salt is that which was salty at one time but has lost its saltiness or branches that were once abundant with fruit but now totally barren so it is with nations that once proclaimed God from the hilltops but that end up turning their backs on God and His Nation, Israel. Oh thatís not to say that there is yet a remnant of salt or branches that still have the life of God hot within their hearts, but the fire of that relationship has mostly died within the heart of this once great nation called the U.S. of America. That fact is evident by seeing how vehemently the main stream media and many within this nationís government are working hard against our current president unlike anything Iíve ever seen in my 60 years on this planet. And yet, they will totally back a liar and foul soul who even had a known forged birth certificate and not even complain about that. †How sick and corrupt this once great nation has become!
A foul and sick disease has entered into the heart of this nation and despite those who remember the Ďgood ole daysí, the gangrene has taken hold and the blood poisoning is already racing to the heart. All that remains is for judgment to fall and those who have prepared themselves to be removed by our Lord. Now is the time for those with wisdom to prepare their hearts and relationship with Christ so that they will be considered one of the wise virgins as noted in Matt 25:1-13. For our Lord reminds us in Proverbs; Pro 22:3 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.
So, this penning is written for those with eyes to see and ears to hear, (Mar 4:9 And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear), to draw nigh to the One Who is Life so that they will be considered worthy to escape the trial that is SOON to come upon the WHOLE EARTH; Rev 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
The following scripture is a good example of a people that once knew of God, but who instead have chosen their own way; Mat 13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. They have instead become useless salt and fruitless branches fit for nothing but destruction; Mat 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; Mat 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. But, those that will chose to fear the Lord and Honor Him, they will He honor; Mat 13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Unfortunately, those who have claimed Jesus as Lord within such a nation, have a tendency of being some of the most complacent and lethargic souls, totally unaware of the coming impending doom! In fact, they are VERY MUCH, just like the church our Lord describes to us in Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: Oh, our Lord still raises up His watchmen to warn them, but MANY of them find their message falling on deaf ears. So will be the condition of such a nation at the time of the rapture those that are in a passionate love affair with the King of kings and Lord of lords, and then those who are only in a Ďconfessional relationship with Himí. One will be taken and the other left just as described in Matt 25:1-13. How sad that only after those who had been warning them all along are gone, will they finally then listen to all that they were being warned about.
The following video from a Brother in Jesus our King just posted this video which I feel then inspired me to pen the thoughts contained herein; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Sa6BKB4TDY
America's Future - the Good, the Bad, the Inevitable. Also, another warning that I believe the Lord had me pen down about 2 weeks ago now is here; http://www.rubornagain.com/The_Most_Lethargic_People_at_the_Present_Hour.htm But like Iím sharing within this penning, I believe that the hour has come and gone where those with ears to hear are hearing because they have waxed dull of hearing as Mat 13:15 says. And yet, it seems that our Father will continue to reach out through those that truly love Him in MORE than just words only until He finally removes the wise virgins from this planet and then pours out his wrath upon this sin-sick world which will finally cause many of those foolish virgins to become wise to the point of surrendering their lives by the removal of their heads from their shoulders.
Heavenly Father, thank You for being sooo long in longsuffering! But, please help us to realize that while this may be the case, You have Your limit which is SOON to be reached. Help each and every one that names the Name of Your Son as Lord & Savior to be in a passionate love affair with Him from our hearts, and NOT just our mouths for itís in the Eternal, Glorious, Matchless Name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
