It is not the Deep State of governmental cabals I wish to examine here. It is the deeper state of depravity into which America has entered that demands to be addressed.
That being said, the former matter, like the latter, is part of the same depraved nature of man. It is rebellion against the Creator that is moving the nation and world ever downward toward the abyss where sin will be incarcerated for all eternity.
We witness daily all the madness and say with a shake of the head: “It’s just insanity.”
We have seen it in the political realm. The party of the ideological left continues to seemingly self-destruct. They do things that make no sense from the perspective of what under the norms of times just past would seem rational. For example, New York City leaders, desperately in need of revenue to fund their “progressive” giveaways, let a 29-year-old, first-term congresswoman–who most often speaks like a teenager–cause $27 billion in taxes from Amazon to be lost. The company instead moved to another state. The neophyte politician, who has an economics degree from Boston University or one of those schools, thought the city was going to give $3 billion to the company to come to the city.
But that wasn’t the case. The company would have paid $30 billion annually to the city, with the city government agreeing to give the company a $3 billion tax break, meaning they would pay $27 billion.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez convinced her constituency and hundreds of thousands of other “progressives” that they didn’t want their city paying $3 billion to Amazon, because one of their key hatreds in their ideology is hatred for the rich. Donald Trump, after all, is a billionaire…
This hatred could not be contained, even though Amazon leadership is totally left on the ideological spectrum in every sense of the anti-Trump political war.
In addition to the lost $27 billion in tax revenue annually, New York City lost what would have amounted to 25,000 jobs. The top officials in Ms. Cortez’s party hierarchy aren’t happy about this matter.
So, as we say here in the South, they cut off their noses to spite their faces.
It shows the growing spiritual dementia, I think. It is an ever-deeper state of depravity into which this generation is descending.
Other symptoms of this dementia-malady can be seen in the same political party in which Ms. Cortez is considered the up-and-coming darling. For example, more than 70 percent of all Americans, which includes those strongly in favor of abortion, say they are against after-birth infanticide. And, infanticide is exactly what a growing number of progressively run states are proposing following in the footsteps of New York City’s decision to let just-born infants die if they were intended for abortion but continue to live after the birth. Despite this large percentage against such horrendous action, the Democrat Party continues to expand the attempted legalization of this infanticide. Other states continue to attempt to pass laws allowing this satanic practice.
Excerpts of a recent news item frames the depravity.
The newly elected Governor JB Pritzker has promised to make Illinois the abortion capital of the world, and he’s making good on his word…
Illinois is taking extreme measures to ensure women are free to…abort their babies, even when they’re partially born…
[The legislation, if enacted] repeals the Illinois Abortion Law of 1975, the Partial-birth Abortion Ban Act, and the Abortion Performance Refusal Act.
That means doctors and medical facilities can be sued for NOT performing an abortion. You have a religious objection to abortion? Too bad Dr. Mohammad! You better suck that fetus out or you’re through! (“Illinois Democrats propose laws expanding abortion access — including repeal of parental notification for minors,” https://t.co/XHk6k2hQiq, Rapture Ready News, Feb 16, 2019)
The genuine madness continues to rage. The Apostle Paul’s spiritual truth as given in Romans chapter 1 is coming to pass every day before our eyes and ears. Turning from God leads to reprobate (upside-down and evil) thinking and action. A stunning example of this is manifest in a recent news story.
A group of grandmothers in Maine is causing quite a stir for a little group they’ve formed “GRR!” which advocates for their children and grandchildren to have the right to abort any further progeny
According to LifeNews.com, GRR!, or “Grandmothers for Reproductive Rights,” seeks to “educate women at the local level about the pro-abortion agenda, and encourage women to speak with their local government officials about supporting abortion and other reproductive health issues.”
About 40 grandmothers participate in GRR!, according to a report. (“Pro-Abort Grandmas in Maine Form Group to Promote Aborting Grandkids,” By ISRAEL WIRE, Rapture Ready News Feb 16, 2019)
Just the acronym for the “grandmas” organization alone should clue us. “GRR!” They are obviously angry at someone or something. Paul indicated the anger of this rebellious generation at the end of the age would be directed toward the Creator of all things. This prophecy has proven true. It seems that more than half of the U.S. is growling forth their hatred like an angry bear just out of hibernation.
We recall one of Paul’s key “perilous times” prophecies in 2 Timothy, chapter 3. He foretold that people will be without “natural affection.” For those grandmas and grandpas reading this, does this make a profound statement as you think of your love for your grandkids?
America and the world are moving swiftly down the road of Sodom and Gomorrah-like depravity. When the Church and the restraining power residing within Christ’s Body goes to the Lord Jesus when He calls, that movement will become an instant free-fall into the Tribulation abyss.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
It is almost unimaginable to think how rapid we would be sinking into depravity right now had Hillary Clinton been elected President in 2016. And so far it is looking pretty good for Trump in 2020. 8 years. That’s it. That’s all we’re going to get. After that, we will get some godless reprobate who will plunge us into the abyss. Unless God willing, the rapture takes place.
So true brother, we would have sunk into the oblivion,but our beautiful Lord and Savior, our Heavenly Father, who is countless in Mercy has given us a reprieve….Lift up his Holy Name!
Excellent article, spot on! Thank you, Mr. James, for putting into words exactly what we are seeing on the prophetic timeline, just as the Bible has foretold! Absolutely mind blowing to live in the last generation before Christ returns. Maranatha!
Yes Pastor we see an ever increasing hatred for human life!
I have 3 grandchildren all are girls, they are the joy of my life. Two are only 2 months old. As I read about all the things going on with this infanticide, tears come to my eyes when I look at those 3 little girls in the face. I’m so in love with them words can’t describe, and I wonder how grandparents can encourage their daughters to abort.
I have no words!
I see my beautiful little girls and just adore them…I see in them how our Father loves and adores us! I’m so grateful My God and King has given me these 3 little girls, and my own 3 children and am so grateful for his love and i now see in them how much he loves me…I pray for all the children around the world, it’s not just the United States who are committing these horrible crimes but it is global. I was watching a story of North Korea and how the ruler of that nation keeps his people in hunger mode. the children are suffering so greatly all around the world. I pray and continue to pray to our Heavenly Father to take them all home soon….Even so, come Lord Jesus Come!
Those grandmothers don’t deserve to have kids or grandkids. But they do. I would have loved to have had even one child. But it’s too late. I will bet you money Governor Cuomo has a family, kids, grandkids and he wants to kill babies after they are born. I don’t understand this world. Makes my stomach hurt and all I wish for is the Rapture.
All the evil and deranged thinking that is happening just goes to show how low the character of humanity can sink when it continues to reject God. People don’t like to admit that mankind has a fallen sinful nature, but how else can one explain using free will to think and act in such deranged ways? I mean, no person is MAKING them think and act this way. It reveals how much people are in need of God’s grace and redemption.
Dearest brother Terry, WOW Can you even believe the rapid growth of demonism?!?? So HORRIFIC & sickening to a Spirit filled believer! :..( You may want to hear a video on why the left are demon possessed by Mike Adams..aka the health ranger from natural news..but it’s on his alternate site: Brighteon.com. Sure makes sense. See you in the air soon. Maranatha Terry. In Jesus, Christy
I couldn’t agree more Pastor James. I believe we have been in the throes and judgment of God according to Romans Chapter 1 (reprobation) for many years now. While what I’m going to say next will not sit well, I believe one overlooked fact of this wrath (besides open and acceptance of homosexuality) is the rise of women and children in making policies in this country. We ask children what to do about supposed “climate change” and gun control. When God judged Israel, according to Isaiah, Isa 3:12 “As for my people, CHILDREN are their oppressors, and WOMEN rule over them. O my people, they that lead thee cause thee to ERR and DESTROY the way of thy paths”. The scene of women in white in Congress at the SOTU was very telling. No pulpit I know of dare mention this for fear of reprisal by women. Women are running this country now. The female vote determines what direction America heads. I know a few sisters in Christ who feel the same way.
Wow, I must thank you for being so bold to make such a statement. This is something I haven’t really considered, but you may have a point here. First of all, many women are deceived into thinking that abortion is a woman’s right. Or that “choice” somehow justifies murder. But think about it… who was deceived by the serpent? Was it Adam or was it Eve? It was clearly Eve who was deceived. Adam knew full well what he was doing and did it anyway. In the same way, men are given a responsibility to lead because they are not as easily deceived. Women leaders are certainly capable, but that isn’t the point. The point is that so many are easily deceived and brainwashed. For proof, just look at this Ocasio-Cortez. She is a product of liberal brainwashing and the agenda set by Karl Marx long ago.
Thank you, brother Jeff, for the compliment. I think it’s very obvious but no one has the courage to take this head-on for fear of retribution. Look at the cover of the recent “Rolling Stone” magazine (Rolling Stone Features Democratic ‘Women Shaping The Future’ As Cover Stars). All liberal feminists. 4 of them. Women make decisions based on emotions; men are more pragmatic; both sexes equal in God’s eyes but different roles. That’s why men love them so much. Imagine this, Elizabeth Warren becoming the Commander-in-Chief. Lord, I pray I’m raptured before I have to endure seeing that. I’m sure Putin would shake in his boots. As I said previously, I believe America has been under God’s wrath as per Romans Chapter 1 for a long time. The final stages of “reprobation” are women ruling. Who’s leading the movement of abortion to the point of birth outside the womb? They are telling men you can decide to be a woman if you wish and weak-kneed effeminate men support this. THAT’S REPROBATION (i.e. Insanity)!! What’s evil is called good and what’s good is called evil. An apple that falls from a tree goes up instead of down. I take no pleasure in saying this but I personally believe America will soon be destroyed. Maranatha Lord Jesus!! Please hurry.
Grandmothers, one of the go to matriarchs for
young mothers to get advice from. Now, an
extension of family planning. How did it come to
this? A complete betrayal of family resources,
experience and knowledge that they could have
shared and passed on to the next generation.
40 grandmother’s advocating death, instead of
life, have you ever heard such a thing?
