Today, much of the Christian world is celebrating Christmas. This website has readers who are “all over the map” on the topic of Christmas and its customs, and this post is not on that topic. However, today seemed an appropriate day to share a column by Pat Buchanan with the readers of this blog. While Christians are busy with their personal or seasonal activities today, their “Christian nation” is being stolen from them.
Pat Buchanan’s column (see link below) is entitled “Christian Rout in Culture War.” He makes a very ominous and accurate case that the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in the military which allows homosexuals to serve openly in the US military is a “defeat for traditional Judeo-Christian values.” Mr. Buchanan notes that Congress, the least-respected institution in the nation (with a 13% approval rating), imposed its radical leftist agenda on the US military, the “most respected of American institutions.” What is tragic is that this action is not a result of any demands for it by the American people. Far from it! Mr. Buchanan notes that gay-marriage referenda in American states have resulted in “31 consecutive defeats” for the homosexual lobby, but Congress is imposing this unwanted radical action on the military anyway. The current Lame Duck Congress, rejected massively in the recent Congressional election, has acted as if it is determined to do as much damage to America as it can before it leaves office.
Buchanan adds that “Middle America never signed on [to gay rights] and still regards homosexuality as an aberrant lifestyle, both socially and spiritually ruinous” [and] “associated with a high incidence of disease, HIV/AIDS, early death, cultural decadence and civilization decline.” He adds that one of our Founding Fathers. Thomas Jefferson, “thought homosexuality should be treated with the same severity as rape,” and that “As late as 1973 the American Psychiatric Association listed homosexuality as a mental disorder.” Buchanan observes that “the world has turned upside down.” He is right and it was prophesied to occur in the latter days. II Thessalonians 2:3 prophesied that the end of our age would not come except “there come a falling away first,” and verses 10-11 add that the world will be given over to “strong delusions” in the latter days because “they received not the love of the truth.” If there are any institutions in the USA where they no longer “receive the love of the truth,” it is the US Congress and White House. Isaiah 1-4, a prophecy about the degeneration of God’s people in the latter days, cites God as saying to his people in Isaiah 3:12 that: “They which lead you cause you to err.” Buchanian’s column is an apt description of how the elites who are in power in the USA are leading the nation into ever greater sins and errors.
The new Congress coming into Washington, DC in January will hopefully be able to reverse some of the damage done by the current out-of-control Congress which openly rejects God, common sense and financial soundness. However, as long as President Obama has a veto pen, sound judgments are not likely to become law.
I will close with a bit of good news for Christians who mourn for what is happening to their beloved United States of America. This good news is going to come even before Jesus Christ returns to this earth to reign as king over all nations (Revelation 20:1-4). The sins of the modern people of Israel and Judah (my books, audio messages, articles and blog posts make it clear who these nations are in the modern world) are “provoking the Holy One of Israel to anger” (Isaiah 1:4) Soon after our current global financial system called Babylon the Great in Revelation 17-18 collapses, the “beast” system will assume global power (Revelation 17) and its reign is Divinely limited to only 42 months (Revelation 13:1-6). After that time it will be crushed out of existence by Jesus Christ and his heavenly armies (Revelation 19:11-21). However, the Beast’s reign for 42 months will not be a pleasant one and Christians will be sent some Divine protection during those 42 months.
Revelation 11 prophesies that God will send “Two Witnesses” who will speak for him and wield God’s Divine powers on the earth “to smite the earth with all plagues as often as they wish” (emphasis added). They will be able to turn water to blood, send droughts over selected nations, etc. (verse 6). Revelation 16:10-11 adds that even the very “seat of the beast'” will be plagued with such darkness and pain that they will “gnaw their tongues for pain.” Revelation 16:1-11 describes a series of plagues that will strike mankind during the beast’s reign to try and motivate mankind to repentance during the beast’s reign. Who will be causing these plagues to befall the beast’s kingdom on earth? The Two Witnesses, of course! They will plague the beast and his global kingdom much as Moses and Aaron plagued Pharaoh and his kingdom just before a great deliverance by God occurred. This will so enrage the beast that Revelation 11:7 prophesies the beast will slay the Two Witnesses after their ministry of 1260 days (or 42 months) is concluded. Clearly, the ministry of the Two Witnesses will largely overlap the reign of the beast.
Since the Two Witnesses will have carte blanche authority from God to smite the earth with plagues, they may choose to specifically direct gruesome plagues on the leaderships elites who forced homosexuality on the military and abortion “rights” on the American people. Abortion was never voted for by the American peple, any US Congress or any US president. It was “legislated” into existence by a reckless Supreme Court which lawlessly usurped legislative authority unto itself. The Two Witnesses will be above all national laws and will be able to smite nations or individuals with plagues “as often as they wish.” This will infuriate the global elites who will seek to kill them. However, Revelation 11:5 prophesies that those who seek to harm or kill the Two Witneses during their 1260-day ministry will themselves be Divinely executed for attempting to harm them.
The world doesn’t think this will ever happen, but it will. When this time arrives, the world’s corrupt leadership elites will deeply suffer for their actions as they will be plagued for them by those Two Witnesses. If you wish to read more about the Two Witnesses, arguably God’s most mighty prophets who will ever walk the earth, I invite you to read my article, The Two Witnesses, available for free at the articles tab at this website. Get ready. They are coming—its only a matter of time.
