Come to the Water

"And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth." Exodus 9:16

Judgment of America is eminent. I believe it's at the door. We have seen the results of what the American people have chosen. They have chosen a man to lead the country that will have unbridled power due to the vast majority his party in congress. His associations and ideals fit a man raised up by God to judge a nation that has wondered away from God. The majority of Americans care nothing about liberty or even about freedom of religion or speech so long as their bellies are full. This has been proven in the past but is now magnified. We are now in a post-Christian which will pave the way for God's judgment, not only on the United States, but the entire world which will culminate in the final battle of Armageddon.

Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. Joel 3:12-14

Men's rebellion against Christ and the authority of his word has been brewing since the first sin in the Garden of Eden. The rulers of this world have no time of Christ and haven't for some time as we read in Psalm 2: 1-3. " Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us." But their rebellion will one day be culminated as we see God's reaction in verse 4-6. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion." We must keep in mind the final outcome and take care we are on the right side, that is the winning side, which is the King of Kings' side who is the creator of the earth, the first and the last. "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last." Revelation 22:13

As God raised Pharaoh of Egypt, he has raised up Obama. Pharaoh's stubbornness to let the children of Israel go allowed God to send plagues on Egypt and judgment on their gods. "For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD." Exodus 12:12 So will God do to the United States to raise judgment against the lukewarm church who is drunk on the cares of this life and care nothing about the things of God. They care more about their Sunday afternoon ballgame than about preparing for the service Sunday night, if they even have a service. They are more concerned about planning the next eat and will turn out in the droves for a social occasion but will pray for only a minute or two at the end of the service, if they even do that. American churchgoers by and large have sold the children to the people who care nothing for God nor his Biblical standards, even with such basic institutions as the traditional family. I could go on and on! Is there any wonder why we're facing what we're facing? I've said this was coming for years and I'm not alone. Many others have said it as well….that judgment of America was coming. Now I'm afraid it is at the door, even the very door! I wish I could tell you something else but I can't.

I will tell you that after the results of this election I was devastated for awhile. My last blog shows it! I had fasted and prayed that it wouldn't turn out this way and so did others, I'm sure. But now that I've had some time to stand back, pray, and study the situation, I realize what has happened. God has done this. Look at Psalm 75: 5-7. "Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck. For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another."

But, Christ is still in control and if you are one of his followers you can still trust in him. If you are not, then it's time to fully trust in him and let him do a work in your life. Jesus said in Revelation 21:6, " And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely." Come to the water my friend and drink! The well is still flowing!
