Israel, the most hated nation in the world—the most hated nation in history, is also the most beloved. God loves Israel with godly passion that is unmatched. Because of His absolute love for the Jewish people –for the nation—Israel has been and is today the one nation on earth almost all other nations of earth would like to see eradicated.
This is because Lucifer, the fallen one –Satan—wants to destroy Israel, and he is the entity who, for the time being, has a large degree of control over the unregenerate people of this fallen world. He is the father of lies and the lost of this world are his children, according to God’s word. Only when people come to redemption through Jesus Christ are they taken out of the devil’s grip.
God’s prophetic word, the Bible, tells that hatred for Israel will be the way things are until the very end when Satan’s dictator, Antichrist, will seek to totally destroy the Jewish people. We have seen the beginnings of that end times destructive action.
Even in America, the nation that has been the most pro-Israel, has of late shown great growth in anti-Semitism –hatred for the Jewish race and for their country, Israel.
Because I couldn’t explain the truth about the hatred for Israel going on any better than does this article, I’ll use this excerpt to illustrate.
Anti-Semitism has always existed in the world. There has never been a time when the Jewish People have not been victimized by Satan’s savage attacks against them. Even today in America—probably the least anti-Semitic nation on earth, the Anti-Defamation League reports the highest level of anti- Semitism since World War II.
At its core is Satan fomenting hatred among men against the Children of the God of Israel, generation after generation. He cleverly disguises each campaign with a compelling lie wrapped in a plan designed to rid the world of a perceived ill blamed on the Jews. From the very first attempt to destroy the Jews—Pharaoh’s murder of all the male Hebrew babies—to Herod’s order to kill all male babies under 2 years old two thousand years ago, the serpent’s scheme was to defeat God’s plan to bring forth the Messiah of Israel. He failed—miserably! Yet, the campaign of hatred marches on because the great redemption story is not over. Because the Jewish People and Israel play a major role in Last Days prophecy, Satan is still hard at work opposing God’s plan. The impetus he is using to rally hatred against the Jew today is a powerful anti-Israel (and pro-Palestinian) deception, wrapped in false humanitarian claims and causes. Understand: Deception is a hallmark of the Last Days (Matthew 24:11). For the minuscule size of the country, the lack of natural resources, or strategic seaport, one has to question why Israel is always at the center of world controversy—her existence continually hanging in the balance. We see Israel at the epicenter of a boiling cauldron of increasingly violent factions rising up within the vast Arab lands surrounding her. The world has been told, and has almost mindlessly accepted, claims that all unrest in the Middle East is Israel’s fault—that if the Jews would give the Land “back to the Palestinians” there would be peace in the world and terrorism would end. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is setting the stage to draw all nations into a final cataclysmic showdown in the Middle East—the nations may think it is against Israel, but they will find out it is against her God!” (True indicators of the last days, Jewish Voice Ministries International, By Jonathan BernisMost, December 1, 2015)
At the same time anti-Semitism is on the rise as an indicator that this generation is nearing the end of the Church Age, there has arisen another indicator that further solidifies my belief of just how near might be the Tribulation era, thus the Rapture of the Church which will precede that horrific time for all humanity.
There is a call going out today that is like a magnet. We have witnessed the Call since the fall of the Berlin Wall and beyond. God is causing the release of His beloved people from around the world.
An article came across my desk pinpointing this Call that is being issued by Jewish clerics.
In a rare consensus, an impressive array of some of the most prominent rabbis of this generation came together in a declaration saying that there are no longer any valid excuses: Jews must act on the Torah commandment to move to Israel.
The consensus came as the first stage in an ongoing multi-faceted project initiated by Joshua Wander, a resident of the Mount of Olives. This stage was timed to coincide with the week in which Jews around the world read the section of the Torah in which God tells Abraham to leave his father’s land.
Hashem said to Avram, “Go forth from your native land and from your father’s house to the land that I will show you. Genesis 12:1…
The project, named appropriately enough “Bring Them Home”, will be launched on Thursday with a series of video lectures given by prominent rabbis explaining why the Biblical imperative to move to Israel is in a new, more imperative stage. The five-minute videos will feature Rabbi Zeev Leff, Rabbi Nachman Kahane, Rabbi Chaim Soloveichik, Rabbi Danny Myers, Rabbi Dr. Abraham Twersky, Rebbetzin Tzipporah Heller, Rabbi Shalom Gold, Rabbi Aryeh Shapira, and Rabbi Mordechai Machlis. All of these rabbis are respected leaders in the Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) movement. Several other rabbis are involved in the project but have not yet prepared video statements for release…https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/139513/major-rabbis-unite-in-decisive-call-for-all-jews-to-return-from-exile-its-time/
This miracle nation called Israel, presently so hated and reviled, is slated for Glory beyond any other experienced by a people or its homeland. They have God’s word on it.
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.” (Isa. 11:11)
No other state in this once indivisible union more firmly represented that unity than did the state of Texas. The battle cry of those fighting for the nation’s freedom from enslavement was often “Remember the Alamo!” –Thus, while young men gave their very lives to preserve all that was good about America.
The song’s title, “Deep in the Heart of Texas,” conjured thoughts of indissoluble patriotism. Its theme embraced the very essence of innocence and determination to advance across the continent under the energy generated by the American spirit.
Recently however, that state, perhaps among the very most once devoted to God and country, has been infiltrated by another spirit.
Those advocating for open borders, who see America and its wealth as belonging to the entire world, seem to have taken over. Illegal aliens coming through the southern border have significantly made a detrimental impact upon the Lone Star state. The immigration crisis, as we know, has dominated the political landscape.
One political party in particular has sought, through flaunting their disdain for immigration laws, to turn Texas into a state solidly in their political camp. Dallas/Ft. Worth has, in effect, become solidly Democrat. The large population centers of Texas –like others in large cities throughout the U.S. vote almost exclusively progressive (liberal). The heart of this great state has turned increasingly dark. Thus, the title of this commentary Deep in the Black Heart of Texas.
The term “black” here is not a racial pejorative. My meaning is totally a matter of moral condemnation. The progressive/liberal ideology has moved America farther from God’s prescription for a morally upright culture and society. The illegal immigration, intended by the progressive ideology to turn Texas from a “red” state to a “blue” state is why the heart of Texas looks to be turning black.
That godless ideology is demonstratively against all things, until recent years, considered moral, common sense, American values. That spiritually dark view of how culture and society should comport has turned morality upside down. The progressive/liberal influence, especially in the highest echelons of government, education, and media, have brought our nation into having what the Apostle Paul termed a reprobate mind (Romans 1: 28).
Texas has at its heart –its capital, a black, festering immorality that rivals the godlessness of any of the east and west coast states. It is a Mecca of the most voracious such sort of political ideology. Austin harbors evil that threatens to infect all of Texas, in pushing it toward presidential electoral votes that will upset the national, political equilibrium.
Lest those who peruse this commentary think I’m way off base with the language used to portray the Texas state capital and what goes on there, I offer the following news excerpt.
AUSTIN, Texas, October 31, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Despite heavy turnout from parents opposed to the plan, the Austin Independent School District voted Tuesday to approve a sex education curriculum that calls for teaching children as early as third grade how to engage in sodomy and put on condoms, that gender is “non-binary,” and more.
As detailed by Texas Values, the curriculum discourages gender-specific language like “mother” and “father” because it “can limit [children’s] understanding of gender into binaries,” encourages children to attend LGBT “pride” rallies and explore other ways to become LGBT “allies,” and proposes various role-play scenarios for children to act out in class, including lesbians deciding when to engage in oral sex and how to handle the aftermath of a drunken sexual encounter.
Texas school district to teach third graders about sodomy, condoms, Calvin Freiburger, LifeSiteNews) Rapture Ready News November 1, 2019)
I have left out the most salacious of the descriptions about things involving these young children. But be assured, the report became much more graphic.
Parents and others protested the school district using the curriculum.
“Who gave you the right, Austin ISD?” The father of a fifth-grade student asked. “You have overstepped,” he added.
Another parent declared the curriculum an “attack on Christianity and family and on parental rights.”
A number of citizens concerned about the curriculum read specific details from the hellish course of study. Gary Moore, one resident, called the sexual role-play activities a “dream scenario for pedophiles.”
While the parents and concerned citizens protested their children being subjected to the wickedness, LGBTQ counter protesters threatened physical harm to those against the curriculum and used screaming and noisemakers to try to drown out the anti-curriculum protesters.
Deep in the Black Heart of Texas, people who still hold to God as the foundation of righteousness must know what Lot felt like in the days just before fire and brimstone fell upon that incorrigibly wicked city.
The Snapping of the American Mind: Healing a Nation Broken by a Lawless Government and Godless Culture :: By David Kupelian – Book Review by Terry James
The Trump Derangement Syndrome in a nutshell –this was my first mental picture in learning of the title of this book. There is no question within the mind of any rational observer of American society and culture. Something infernally wicked has injected evil into the national psyche since the presidential election of 2016. The dementia is progressing geometrically.
The Snapping of the American Mind is the volume you must get, read and study to be brought into full realization of what this madness is all about. I promise that the study part of this recommendation will not be labor intensive. You will be swept along, as was I, by author David Kupelian’s masterful dissection of every nuance of the national turmoil in which we’ve been embroiled for the past 3 years.
The reading of this book is an endeavor that every American who loves and is concerned about our nation’s future will find not only worthwhile but absolutely crucial as we move toward the darkening, Biblically prophetic horizon.
Roots of this present national descent into madness sprang forth from seeds of humanistic hubris. “We will have no deity to rule over us,” was and continues to be the sin-ridden declaration that feeds the cultural and societal insanity that plagues us. Kupelian reaches back into the historical soil from which the rebellion was spawned and makes understandable the rage against everything that was once held sacred to the nation’s founding.
In The Snapping of the American Mind, veteran journalist and bestselling author David Kupelian shows how the progressive Left – which today dominates America’s key institutions, from the news and entertainment media, to education, to government itself – is accomplishing much more than just enlarging government, redistributing wealth and de-Christianizing the culture. With the Left’s wild celebration of sexual anarchy, its intimidating culture of political correctness, and its incomprehension of the fundamental sacredness of human life, it is also, whether intentionally or not, promoting widespread dependency, debauchery, family breakdown, crime, corruption, addiction, despair and suicide.
Surveying the growing chaos in American society, Kupelian exposes both the utopian revolutionaries and their extraordinary methods that have turned America’s most cherished values literally upside down – to the point that madness is now celebrated and normality demonized.
In The Snapping of the American Mind, you’ll discover:
- How the left has succeeded in re-defining not just “marriage,” but the rest of Americans’ core values, from “equality” to “justice” to “freedom”;
- Why America, unquestionably the least racist nation on earth, is now being portrayed as a deeply racist pariah state;
- Why the U.S. is intentionally being flooded with millions of needy, dependent, Third World immigrants;
- How a group that amputates healthy body parts and has a 41% attempted suicide rate is officially declared “normal,” yet new “research” suggests conservatives have malformed brains;
- Which of the two major U.S. political parties has a far higher incidence of mental illness than the other;
- Why Americans today are more stressed-out, confused, conflicted and addicted than at any time in the nation’s history – and where this ominous trend is leading.
Fortunately, The Snapping of the American Mind also explores how America truly can be restored to her former, and still underlying, goodness and greatness – and just as important, how individuals, despite living in an age of high anxiety, moral confusion and growing chaos, can find genuine happiness and personal healing.
One endorser of The Snapping of the American Mind, whose name you will recognize, writes the following.
“David Kupelian is one of the most thought-provoking and iconoclastic writers I know. Agree or disagree, David is a must-read if you really want to understand the world we live in and where it’s headed.”
—Sean Hannity, Top-rated radio and television host and author
David Kupelian is an award-winning American journalist, vice president and managing editor of online news giant WND, editor of Whistleblower magazine, and a widely read columnist. The author of two other influential books – The Marketing of Evil published in 2005 and its 2010 sequel How Evil Works – Kupelian has been featured on Fox News, MSNBC, C-SPAN, CBN, and many other TV and radio venues.
This book is truly the best volume I’ve found for exploration of, in real time, causes and effects of the reprobate mind (Romans 1:28) – that irrational, evil, dissidence collectively suffered by many in America today. The Snapping of the American Mind, I believe, should be used closely in conjunction with other vital study resources as the student of God’s Word on prophecy prayerfully considers issues and events of these troubled though exciting times.

While signs that this generation is at the end of the Church Age rage, the devil’s thinking becomes ever louder through voices infected with the fallen one’s hatred. A Democrat candidate for president in 2020 provided the echo chamber for making audible Satan’s intentions.
CNN TV host Don Lemon, Thursday night October 10, provided the question on the CNN town hall. He asked Beto O’Rourke whether he thought all churches or other organizations that held views against those of the LGBTQ community should have their tax-exempt status taken away.
The candidate said “Yes.” He added: “There can be no reward, no benefit, no tax break for anyone or any institution – any organization in America that denies the full human rights and the full civil rights of every single one of us.” Vowing to make this a priority of his administration, O’Rourke said further, “We are going to stop those who are infringing upon the human rights of our fellow Americans.”
A few other of the 20 something Democrat candidates in the 2020 presidential race backed away from O’Rourke’s blunt declaration. But throughout weeks and months of rantings and ravings the collective mindset of the radical left –and that is almost everyone running on the Democrat side— has made it clear. They are a militant mob of LGBT activists who are satanically-driven to shut down all evangelical churches in America and to silence any Christian who dares to stand in the way of their agenda.
Echoes of Lucifer’s seething contempt for all that is holy in this strange time so near to the end of the age can’t be contained. His minions of the human sort are seeing to it that his lies are given voice on a regular basis.
As a matter-of-fact, the main stream news media broadcasts on an hourly basis the cavernous reverberations of the devil’s lies. Thus, while refusing most counter thought to be aired on their various venues. –Venues that, like the political, ideological and theological left, are of one mind. It is the mind of the father of lies.
We can get a perspective on just how rapidly things have been moved toward the abyss Satan has planned for this nation and the world through this news excerpt.
“The American pastor whose two-year imprisonment plunged Turkey into a diplomatic feud with the United States urged young Christians in his home country to prepare for the persecution he sees gathering for them on the horizon.
“Pastor Andrew Brunson, 51, told the Washington Examiner how troubled he has been by the ominous trends he has observed in American culture during the year since his dramatic, high-stakes release from a Turkish prison.
“Brunson elsewhere said he has been “astounded at the speed with which the U.S. is imploding” and how anti-Christian sentiment has surged during just the few years he was isolated. “The whole Trump election and everything that happened afterward, I knew very little about it. So, when I came back to the states and just started reading and following news, it was just such a contrast to the environment that we had been in even four to six years ago.”
“It seems that the culture has become more overtly hostile,” he said, pinpointing how large corporations are now joining the media and political classes to push positions that often oppose biblical teaching. A segment of elite society has long regarded Christians sneeringly, he said, but opposition is now bubbling up everywhere and “is now spread to where it’s more of a grassroots thing that is growing.” [Source: http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-ews/3786234/posts]
As we are assaulted by the echoing, cacophonous ravings of the godless, reprobate minions, let’s comfort ourselves with Scripture such as that of Titus 2: 13.
Madness that assaults the senses every waking moment continues to expose the lateness of the prophetic hour. This generation is deeply into reprobate mindset the Apostle Paul forewarned will ultimately afflict any person or any generation of people who turn their backs on the God of Heaven.
Not intending to make myself out to have a word of knowledge or other strange wind of supernatural soothsaying ability, I nonetheless must recount a matter that constantly dominates my spiritual senses these days. It involves how the Lord spoke to those senses years ago about things that have proven to be insight with ongoing, unfolding validation.
My series of commentaries I called “Scanning a Fearful Future” covered the emails filled with panic I was at the time receiving on a regular basis. Pundits, including well-known Bible prophecy teachers and TV hosts, were saying that Christians in America faced imminent danger from dynamics taking place within ever-darkening governmental efforts to completely change the nation in deleterious ways. We would, these pundits proclaimed, wake up one morning and find that the America as founded was now a more or less totalitarian regime. Christians would soon be marching off to gulag. At the very least, we would no longer be able to teach and preach or even talk about Bible truth in public.
Just as ominously, these pundits were saying, the economy would completely collapse and we would return to times almost like those before electricity–at least that’s how the dystopian warnings sounded to yours truly. Indeed, the presidential administration then in power seemed to be moving America in the dire direction that was being forecast.
All of this was taking place during the latter part of 2010 and the first part of 2011.
The emails kept coming. Would the United States soon collapse and Christians in America be marched off to FEMA camps for internment? Or worse, would Christians suffer martyrdom as did believers in Christ during the time of the Roman Coliseum spectacles?
Again, even prophecy teachers of renown were intimating that this might be the case. Certainly, many secular pundits were almost in unison in predicting that the American and world economies were on the verge of collapse.
So, in light of the large number of emails I received from those who read our articles –all worried about future prospects—I undertook to write a series of ten commentaries. While writing these, the Holy Spirit, I’m convicted in my own spirit, imparted through those articles the answer to give these worried brothers and sisters.
I’ve written a number of times over the years since that time about the thoughts I believe the Lord gave through that series. The bottom line was and is that there would be no sudden collapse of the United States economy–there would be no incarceration and martyrdom of Christian Americans. I cautioned that there was indeed such incarceration and martyrdom of Christians all over the globe at that very moment. There continues to be this horrendous treatment around the world as I write this.
America, I wrote back then, deserves no special dispensation from such collapse. Christians in America are not, in our own righteousness, immune from the kind of torture and martyrdom being foisted upon Christians who live within evil regimes around the world. Any and all such dispensation is by the grace of God, and that alone. He determines who is born when and where. He, alone, will have mercy upon whom He will have mercy. And this does not mean He favors anyone in particular in the general sense of dealing with mankind.
In the case of America, God has obviously determined that the nation is on the planet and at this time for very specific purposes. We have gone over many times that it is believed those purposes are 1) to be a primary instrument of spreading the gospel around the world, and 2) to act first as midwife for Israel’s rebirth into modernity, then to act as military protector. The Lord can do that Himself, but He has chosen the US, it is obvious to me, at least, to be his human agency in providing that protection over His chosen nation.
In that regard, America is undeniably the apex nation of the world so far as earthly riches are concerned. America is the most materially blessed country of history. It has been among the most spiritually blessed as well.
As I stated in that series, the US has, sadly and tragically, become one of the most wicked nations of all times, as well. The evil stretches from pornography to the abortion of more than sixty million babies. So, our “goodness” as Alexis de Toqueville ascribed to this nation is more than overshadowed by the evil among us. As Ruth Graham is accredited with saying (and I paraphrase): “If God doesn’t hold America accountable for her wickedness, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”
How true this is now more than even when she uttered that thought. We have watched the absolute debauching of society and culture through the LGBTQ and all forms of perversion involving sexuality. We now watch reports of transvestites or drag queens assigned to libraries to teach small children their perverted ways and perversions beyond theirs. We see the Vogue teen magazine instructing, in explicit detail, teenage girls and younger how to indulge in sodomy as a pleasurable means of avoiding sexual interaction that impregnates. We are barraged hour by hour with reports of every sort of inculcation that tries to destroy the institution God the Creator designed involving one man and one woman as husband and wife.
Yet, with all this, including our largest cities becoming infested with filth and lasciviousness that is the antithesis of all God intended, America is still here and not only still here, but far outpacing all other nations of the world in most every area of culture–except for turning back to God to a great extent. There are nations that are seemingly seeking God’s face much more than is our beloved America.
This will, ultimately, bring that judgment, Mrs. Graham forewarned those years ago.
America, as I think the Lord showed me, is, however, going to be here for His specific purposes until He calls His Church to be with Christ in the Rapture. This is based on Jesus’ own prophecy found in Matthew 24: 36-42 and Luke 17: 26-30. He has put his man of the hour into the office of president of the United States in a miraculous way. Donald J. Trump defied all political odds and defeated the woman who the political world believed to be a sure thing as candidate for the presidency in 2016.
Mr. Trump is a builder perhaps unparalleled in modern history. He is a businessman with acumen few can in truth deny. He is a friend of Israel like no other president. He has accomplished things in Israel no other president has come close to attempting. Some Israelis even are calling him their “king.”
I don’t agree with the Israelis bestowing that nomenclature or the thought, but I put it here just to show the importance of this man who is not a godly one, but who is most definitely God’s man for this crucial hour at the end of the Church Age. No matter what Satan’s globalist hordes try against Trump, he prevails and even thrives. It is astonishing to behold. And, it is at least in part attributable to God’s people invoking the prayer of 2 Chronicles 7:14, I have no doubt.
The “Scanning a Fearful Future” series concluded by saying it is all in fulfillment of Christ’s prophecy as listed in the “days of Noah, days of Lot” Scriptures above. We are in an unprecedented time of economic upturn–of building, selling and buying in this nation, even while the rest of the world is struggling. Thus, also, even though the signals abound that all could come crashing down. And many economic experts say it will do so at any moment. This is what they were saying, remember, back in 2010 and 2011.
But God holds all in His omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent hand.
Just like Jesus said, I believe that it will be just like in the days of Lot when Christ next catastrophically intervenes into the affairs of rebellious mankind. That evil generation was buying, selling, and building. Business was great. But the day Lot and his family went out of Sodom, God’s judgment fell and destroyed the rebellious inhabitants.
As stated near the end of that series, Christians need not fear that coming judgment and wrath. It will be not a fearful future, but a fantastic future we will face when the glorious event we call the Rapture occurs and we are suddenly in the presence of our Lord and Savior.
As I view it, all is still on track to unfold exactly as I believe I was impressed to write those nine years ago.
Only six days into the presidency of Donald J. Trump, the humanistic gurus of the community known as the” Atomic Scientists” raised a ruckus. They lamented that we were within two and a half minutes of nuclear midnight. This was supposed to mean that global catastrophe was closer, perhaps, than it has ever been.
The atomic scientists’ perception as the unthinking–bumbling, or perhaps deliberate evil–of the new president made the doomsday clock time-setters nervous indeed.
Their joint declaration stated that scant few days after his taking office, “Both his statements and his actions as president-elect have broken with historical precedent in unsettling ways. He has made ill-considered comments about expanding the U.S. nuclear arsenal. He has shown a troubling propensity to discount or outright reject expert advice related to international security, including the conclusions of intelligence experts. And his nominees to head the Energy Department and the Environmental Protection Agency dispute the basics of climate science.”
I have written in these commentaries for years that the globalists’ key rallying point for trying to bring about the new world order they seek has been global warming. It is now called climate change. The luciferian rant is ratcheting up in every aspect of geopolitical atmospherics. However, we can expect, I have absolutely no doubt, an even more massive uptick in the assault. Climate change will continue to be the spear tip of the campaign against God’s order of things as we move deeper in human history toward the Tribulation hour.
The scientists in question collectively issued the accusation–highly disturbing in their view– that Trump, during the 2016 presidential campaign, talked about the need to increase and upgrade nuclear weapons capability. At the same time, they ranted that he spoke against their and the general, scientific community’s overwhelming consensus that climate change poses a threat beyond any other to the well-being of the planet.
All the while they said nothing of former President Obama’s trying to anger Russia’s Vladimir Putin in the last months of the Obama administration–a thing that gave Putin fodder to proclaim the need to further increase the Russian nuclear arsenal.
Like in every other instance of hypocritical treatment by media and by the humanistic, scientific community, Obama got a pass, while their collective ire descended full force on the one who defeated them in the American electoral process.
They ignored that international relations deteriorated dangerously during the Obama years, rather noted fawningly that the former president in 2010 called for a nuclear-free world.
At the same time, they pointed out angrily their convoluted and quasi-accurate assessment that Trump suggested South Korea and Japan might consider developing nuclear weapons since North Korea and even China represent growing threats. They berated Trump and his six-day-old administration for having no “firm plans” to extend the controversial “Iran nuclear deal.”
The doomsdayers further castigated Trump and laid out their great fear his winning the American presidency wrought.
“The political situation in the United States is of particular concern. The Trump transition team has put forward candidates for cabinet-level positions (especially at the Environmental Protection Agency and Energy Department) who foreshadow the possibility that the new administration will be openly hostile to progress toward even the most modest efforts to avert catastrophic climate disruption.”
Please believe me. Although we have heard week after week of such sophistry to this point, it is nowhere near the last we will hear of the climate change madness.
Those of the now antiquated “million woman march” and the “if- it-feels-good-do-it” crowd lost their “political fast-track to succeeding” they were previously on. These sorts, as we have witnessed, are furious to the point of displaying mental instability. But, the globalists elite of this world, working to bring in Antichrist’s regime–even if unknowingly–are exceedingly more angry and determined that this president will be removed by hook or crook.
We know intimately of the volume increase on talk of impeaching him. There are absolute proofs that a coup d’état have been in the deep state plans of the angriest of the nation’s power brokers.
It does not, nor should it, surprise, that this level of rebellion is raising its ugly, serpent-like head. We only have to go to the great book of Revelation to understand the extremes to which fallen man will go when they don’t get their way.
There will be a rebellion of the most horrific magnitude ever at the end of the Millennium–the thousand-year reign of Jesus Christ. This uprising will occur, we are told through prophecy, after the rule of the only perfect Ruler in all of human history.
And, this gets us back to the Doomsday Clock scientists’ forewarning of Trump causing the destruction of the earth because of his declaring as lunacy their climate change mantra. Well, maybe it’s I–not Trump–who call it lunacy, but he adamantly opposes it–and them nonetheless.
The fact that Revelation 20:7-9 tells us there will be this last, satanically led rebellion in an attempt to dethrone the Creator of all things lets us know that there will still be a planet earth, despite President Donald Trump, and even seven years of Tribulation.
Also, it proves, in my estimation, the lunacy of the doomsdayers diatribe.
One can sense prophetic movement afoot within this presidential election cycle. The globalist agenda, as mentioned a number of times in these commentaries, seems to have been put on hold, or at least slowed.
That is not to say that the forces wanting to set the stage for Antichrist’s rise to power–unwittingly no doubt in most cases–have by any means given up on their agenda. But, in America, for the moment, the people’s decision to put this particular man in the most powerful office on earth appears to have erected a wall of opposition.
It is God, Himself, who in actuality has put Trump in the office of U.S. president, just as He allows any potentate, prince, or president to come to power.
With this in mind, it is most interesting to consider developments as offshoots of the 2016 election–thus in light of the coalescing of prophetic indicators the issues and events of these times have wrought.
One such indicator I’ve written about previously that has potential prophetic overtones in my estimation is the possibility of a coming economic boom. This is the trend in every direction one looks in consideration of the financial markets of late. Most every indicator leading up to the 2016 election year pointed to dire outcomes in America and the world regarding economic prospects. Europe and much of the rest of the world, admittedly, continue to be steeped in somewhat dire such predictions. The United States prospects, however, are looking brighter and brighter as the presidency of Donald J. Trump proceeds.
I’m not deluded–nor should you be–that all is well. It isn’t. But, a boom, I believe, was prophesied by the Lord Jesus Himself. It will be a time of buying, selling, building, marrying, planting, and doing all the things that say good times are here again.
Jesus said as recorded in Matthew 24:36-42 and Luke 17:26-30 that times will be booming economically at the time judgment will fall. Anytime the Lord prophesied–such as in His Olivet Discourse foretelling–the things He foretold announced an especially accelerated or more pronounced state than normal circumstance would indicate. When He said people will be buying, selling, building, etc., “like in the days of Lot,” He was, I’m convinced, predicting a boom in wealth, etc.–i.e., economic circumstance well beyond business as usual.
We see, at this present hour, a movement into economic boom times for this nation. Trump is an acknowledged business whiz, and the financial markets almost without exception give indication they have confidence he will “make America great again”–at least economically speaking.
This optimism of the money changers of Wall Street and other echelons of fiscal power inspired me to meander a bit through the Revelation chapter 18 prophecy in which the entity known as Babylon the Great is described. The ruminating in my mind raises the question, despite the longstanding seminary declaration that this entity will rise from the geographical area of ancient Babylon. Is it possible the prophecy might involve the United States of America?
I’m not saying it will be thus–just that it is legitimate to raise the question. I’m aware that great theologically prophetic minds–some belonging to dear friends–say there is no such possibility.
Another such prophetic indicator flowing from this presidential election–the subject of this essay–is the matter of the president’s moving the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Actually, candidate Trump long ago made this declaration during many stump speeches. It is more than noteworthy, therefore, that his selection to be ambassador to Israel had at the center of his thinking the move of the American embassy from to Jerusalem.
Trump’s choice, David Friedman, an orthodox Jew, stated at the time that he looked forward to serving as ambassador to Israel at “the US embassy in Israel’s eternal capital, Jerusalem.”
Former Republican National Committee chairman and, at the time, President-Elect Donald Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus, was told in an interview on the December 18, 2016 FOX News Sunday program by Chris Wallace, the show’s host, that Freidman has said he was against the two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. This, Wallace indicated, was against the international community’s determination to make such a “solution” part of a peace deal. The upshot of Wallace’s thought was that this was going to be a highly controversial stand by Friedman and Trump. This, it was implied, would prevent the peace from eventuating, which the globalists want to impose upon Israel and the region.
Zechariah’s prophecy might here come into play as we look forward to the coming months of the Trump presidency. The establishment of America’s embassy in Jerusalem, thus making recognition of that most controversial city on earth as Israel’s capital ironclad, it was feared, almost certainly would both drive the Arab-Islamists of the region into a frenzy and cause massive diplomatic headaches for the globalist, international community sort. It remains to be seen just what the ultimate effects will be.
The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. (Zechariah 12:1-3)
Like in the prophecy involving Jesus’ days of Noah, days of Lot foretelling, Zechariah’s prophecy regarding Jerusalem looks to be forming. Stay tuned…
