The Psalmist was given this to write by God the Holy Spirit.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD: and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. (Psalm 33:12)
Despite America’s current condition, most Christians who are spiritually attuned to what the Lord of Heaven has to say about the peoples of earth know this has been, since its inception, a God-blessed nation. While we look around at the national and world landscapes today, we can say that America’s blessings look to be headed in the opposite direction.
Just considering the conditions that have resulted from the political chaos, the so-called pandemic, and now the complete disaster that the Afghanistan withdrawal seems to be producing, it is not difficult to reach the conclusion that the nation has been “weighed in the balance and found wanting.” It is being asked in such spiritually attuned quarters whether we are now seeing the “handwriting on the wall.”
While most believe the Afghanistan cut-and-run decision to be terrible error by a commander-in-chief who is of diminishing mental capacity, a more prophetically specific take piqued my interest recently.
Some geo-strategists—former clandestine-service types I heard—caused me to think in another direction than the mental incapacity slant.
These were pointing out that whoever is directing the current American presidential administration is using the diminished mentality matter as a ruse. In actuality, these say, what is happening is the global reset being carried out.
The whole Afghanistan matter, they believe, is to pile on America’s inevitable fall. The Afghan debacle is one more part of the globalist blueprint. First it was the stolen American election. That followed the years-long internal assaults by the US intelligence services, news and entertainment media, some top military people, and the extreme left ideological wickedness. Then burst onto the scene the pandemic with the masks, vaccines, and all the rest of the efforts to control. It was and is all part of bringing on the global reset we’’ve heard about now for several years.
That strategy is being implemented by the evil powers and principalities (both human and demonic) of Ephesians 6:12, I believe. Seems Satan’s blueprint in that regard is at the center of the accusations by the collective, American patriot, geopolitical thinkers I heard putting forth their theory.
Again, that theory is that this president’s quickly diminishing mental capacity is being used as a ruse to, the minions hope, implement their global reset. The whole Afghanistan debacle was preplanned and is being implemented. What we’ve been witnessing in Afghanistan is not an egregious error in presidential or military planning.
It makes sense, to me. The Afghanistan travesty has, many believe, greatly weakened America in the world’s view, and it has given our chief nemeses such as China, Russia, Iran, and others thoughts that the US is in a vulnerable condition.
The following excerpt from an article written many months before the Afghanistan withdrawal catastrophe explains the globalists’ mad rush to implement its reset at its core.
Conservative Americans in particular have been a thorn in the side of the globalists for generations, and it really comes down to a simple matter of mutual exclusion: You cannot have an openly globalist society and conservative ideals at the same time in the same place. It is impossible.
Conservatives believe in limited government, true free markets, individual liberty, the value of life, freedom of speech, private property rights, the right to self defense, the right to self determination, freedom of religion, and the non-aggression principle (we won’t harm you unless you try to harm us). None of these ideals can exist in a globalist world because globalism is at its core the pursuit of a fully centralized tyranny.
There are people on this planet that are not satisfied to merely live their lives, take care of their families and make their mark peacefully. They crave power over all else. They desperately want control over you, over me, over everything, and they will use any means at their disposal to get it. I would compare it to a kind of drug addiction; globalists are like crack addicts, they can never get enough power, there is always something more to take. (Brandon Smith, “Globalists Will Need Another Crisis In America as Their Reset Agenda Fails,” Lewrockwell.com, April 19, 2021)
The writer of the above article predicted last April that if the global reset failed, the minions would concoct additional crises to bring America down. This makes the theory of the collective patriots I mention quite believable.
However, again, what is left out of all this is the restraining power of the Holy Spirit. I believe the problems these globalist resetters are experiencing in their nefarious efforts is their evil being exposed by that restraining Influence.
God will continue to frustrate these agents of the devil until He calls the Church to Himself. For Americans who are Christians—as well as all true believers throughout the world—that restraint we are seeing is indeed a blessing.
We are, in my view, in the end times described by the Lord—“like it was in the days of Lot” (Luke 17: 28-29). Despite all the evil literally bursting all around us—like that which the much-vexed Lot experienced—it is still business as usual; we’re buying, selling, planting, building, etc. The economic collapse all the doomsayers are predicting hasn’t been allowed to happen yet. Neither has the “great reset” yet been allowed.
These judgments are no doubt coming, but God the Restrainer has promised the following, and the promise is a true blessing for America and the world this side of the Rapture.
And now ye know what withholdeth [the Restrainer] that he [Antichrist] might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he [the Holy Spirit as Restrainer] who now letteth [Restrains] will let [Restrain], until he [the Restraining Holy Spirit] be taken out of the way [in the Rapture]. And then shall that Wicked [Antichrist] be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming. (2 Thessalonians 2:6–8)
