See All These Things
It simply takes my breath away. Not because I can't believe what I'm seeing and hearing in the news every day but because of the speed in which events are unfolding! The Lord has blessed us to actually witness the events He said in Matthew 24 would occur when the Last Days were upon us:

"So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors." (Matthew 24:33)

And the context He uses is when all these things are beginning to occur simultaneously, it's then that His appearing for us in the Rapture is near:

"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." (Luke 21:28)

We've made a short video showing how easy it is to 'see all these things'. Watch it below...

It's sad to observe the moral decay of America and the ethical decline of our Government. But with these things comes the knowledge that Jesus is soon to appear. Let's look at how America is spiraling toward an abyss of no return and how our Government is doing everything backwards by calling "evil good and good evil" (Isaiah 5:20).

A few weeks ago a California school imposed a homosexual curriculum on classes by approving a mandatory 'gay-day' for Kindergarten through fifth-grade students. There's no way to minimize the fact that God condemns homosexuality. The New American Standard Bible renders this verse best:

"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals," (1 Corinthians 6:9)

Then hardly two weeks later, a U.S. Court banned a Pennsylvania Mother from reading a Bible in class for her child's 'show and tell'. And exactly like the Bible said would occur, the powers-that-be are calling evil good and good evil.

Our new President doesn't personally have any better track record dealing with gay issues either. He's just as sinfully wrong addressing the subject as the Courts. Less than a month into his Administration the White House called for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act making him the most pro-homosexual President in history. Then less than two weeks ago he honored Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month and said he's “proud to be the first President to appoint openly LGBT candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an Administration.” Makes you proud to be an American doesn't it. (I say that with complete and utter sarcasm.)

All those stories are well and good for showing the moral depravity of America and its leaders, but there's something just as distressing in relation to God's protection and blessing of our country and that's America's relationship with Israel. Remember, Israel is God's land (2 Chronicles 7:20, Isaiah 14:25, Jeremiah 2:7 & 16:18, Ezekiel 36:5 & 38:16 and Joel 1:6 & 3:2) and is inhabited by His chosen people (Isaiah 43:20 & 65:15, 1 Chronicles 16:13, Psalms 33:12, Mark 13:20 and 1 Peter 2:9). If you want a blessing, simply bless the people and nation of Israel. But if you do them wrong, prepare to face God's anger:

"And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." (Genesis 12:3)

"For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye." (Zechariah 2:8)

It's a frightening thing to come under the condemnation of God for going against His land and chosen people. So how is our President handling this task? Not well at all. His very first telephone call from the Oval Office to a foreign statesman was made to President Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of the so-called Palestinians who continually call for the destruction of Israel and refuse to acknowledge it as a legitimate Jewish state.

Since his inauguration the President has constantly kept pressure on Israel to divide its nation with the Arabs in an effort to negotiate a peace agreement. Only a few weeks ago he promised the Arabs that Jerusalem would be theirs. When that comes to pass, and it will, and if America is complicit in the deal the United States will pay a very high price:

"I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land." (Joel 3:2)

And then, if that weren't enough to anger the God of the universe, only a few days ago the President goes one step further in distancing the United States from Israel. Here's the news story:

Late on Friday The Washington Times' Christian Bourge obtained a copy of Presidential Determination 2009-19, latest in a series of pro forma memos to the Secretary of State entitled "Suspension of Limitations Under the Jerusalem Embassy Act." This determination is a legally required waiver under said act to continue to delay the May 31, 1999 deadline for moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Nearly identical memos like this have been issued every six months for the last decade. Standard procedure, no big deal, right? Well in the Bush years the memo contained the sentence,

"My Administration remains committed to beginning the process of moving our embassy to Jerusalem."

The Obama team has edited that passage out. This explains the Friday evening release.

With the omission of that one line the President might as well have said, 'The United States no longer recognizes, nor will recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital nor as their sole possession.' How arrogant, how egotistical to speak as though the United States has such sovereignty over Israel as to nullify recognition of their God-given capital. I don't believe I'm overstating this when I say that with this single act I believe the President has signed America's death warrant:

"And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth." (Zechariah 14:12)

It seems to be arrogance and pride that drives this Administration. It has been learned that along the walls in the West Wing of the White House near the Oval Office the President has placed many pictures of himself. If he's that enamored with his own image he might as well have placed mirrors instead of photos.

First, he needs to realize that this attitude is sin:

"An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin." (Proverbs 21:4)

And second, if he doesn't repent and have a change of heart, it will lead to his downfall:

"Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall." (Proverbs 16:18)

I seriously doubt however that the President would take a dose of humility because he's too much into making a name for himself and his Administration. Only a few days ago Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu was told by an 'American official' in Jerusalem that "We are going to change the world. Please don't interfere." That doesn't sound like a man who is or will be in the throws of repentance.

For those who say I'm being judgmental, yes, I am. I have a Biblical right to be:

"Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." (John 7:24)

"Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?" (1 Corinthians 6:3)

Jesus told us to judge things according to Biblical standards and principals. That's what I've done with our nation, the Government and the President, and the reason why is to show that every news story I've offered is what Jesus said to watch for when His appearing was near. It's exactly like He said it would be in the Last Days and I haven't even mentioned North Korea's testing of nuclear weapons and their testing of a missile delivery system which could reach the United States. Or how about Iran's continuing efforts to produce nukes and their developing relationship with Russia. Like I said, it simply takes my breath away.

Have you repented of your sins, confessed Him as Lord and received Him as your Savior? Are you ready? You'd better be.

See all these things!
