The Tribulation and the Future of America!
The tribulation brings on images of suffering, death, and the "end of the world." The tribulation
has been discussed for two thousand years now and many ideas and concepts abound.
The subject of the tribulation and fall of America is NOT a pleasant one, but it
is one that we NEED to be aware of, even if for no other reason,
than to offer hope when this country DOES experience the war and
captivity soon to occur.
I love this country as much as anyone does. It is a
remarkable, beautiful and powerful country, or at least it WAS.
Of course, there is still much of all of that, but there is a
definite loss being experienced here, and if you are honest with
yourself, you will admit this.
The details of the how's and why's pertaining to
America and the rest of the world is discussed elsewhere. What I
want to sketch out for you is the essential series of events that
will happen, and probably in the not too distant future.
America has been the greatest nation the world has ever
known. The richest, most powerful collection of people and
purpose. America had a "vision" in the past, and that
vision is being dissolved by various forces that seek to weaken
our country from within. That is very evident these days.
Americans have grown "fat and lazy." Most of us are
enclosed in our own little world and we don't care that
our government is corrupt. Just consider the Clinton administration and actions
for example. A majority of the American public couldn't care
less that it occurred. Most Americans don't care much about
anything except what affects their wallets and their happiness.
As long as that isn't affected, they don't care what is
happening in the country or world. We have become apathetic,
withdrawn and blind to what is taking place all around them. It
is a blindness that is caused by being unthankful, uninvolved,
greedy and decadent, and it will allow most to experience the
fall of our country.
In order to understand prophecy regarding America, you need to understand where America is discussed in the bible. The greatest nation the Earth has ever seen would certainly be mentioned in the bible, yet most are unaware of where and why.
If you do a study of scriptures, and obtain documentation from a number of excellent books on the subject, you will come to see the controversial truth that America is part of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel. God made promises to Abraham that didn't come to fruition until about 1800. These promises of national greatness and massive physical blessings to Israelite people have never been seen until the western nations of the world came on the scene.
Please keep in mind that all Jews are Israel, but not all Israel are Jews...
Judg 20:18 And the children of Israel arose, and went up to the house of God, and asked counsel of God, and said, Which of us shall go up first to the battle against the children of Benjamin? And the LORD said, Judah (Tribe of Judah-Jews) shall go up first.
1 Sam 11:8 And when he numbered them in Bezek, the children of Israel were three hundred thousand, and the men of Judah thirty thousand.
Notice that "Israel" is mentioned as separate FROM Judah. There are 12 Tribes of Israel, and Judah is only ONE tribe of Israel. What do you think happened to the other 11 tribes? Disappeared from history and no longer exist is what most believe, however...
Rev 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
Here we have a prophecy of the very end time during the tribulation period when there will be 144,000 people of the very tribes most believe no longer exist... the 12 tribes of Israel, one of which is Judah, or the Jews. This obviously means these "tribes" exist somewhere right now and are made up of a people descended from the ancient 12 tribes. Knowing who these people are, and how God warns these people who have been the recipients of great blessings, is paramount in understand what God expects of the United States, Britain, and other western "Israelitish" nations.
Now, to continue... Most people in this country will be shocked by the events to
take place. The exact scenario of how this will take place is
unclear right now, but this much is PLAIN. America will become a
slave country to powers that will destroy our way of life.
Through whatever means it is, America will be subject to other (one or more) countries and powers that will rule us forcefully, and will destroy
many of our cities. Many of us will go into captivity, and many
will die because of this. It is sad that most of those who
experience this could have made a change had they taken the time
and responsibility to be TRUE Americans, and more importantly, true to God and His word.
Ezek 7:19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their
gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver
them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls,
neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumbling block of their
Ezek 5:4 Then take of them again, and cast them into the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire; for thereof shall a fire come forth into all the house of Israel. 5 Thus says the Lord GOD; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her.
Vs. 5 focuses on the City Jerusalem, but the whole scripture is duel and prophetic in nature. These events have not taken place as yet.
6 And she (The whole House of Israel - all tribes on Earth today - see vs. 4) hath changed my judgments into wickedness more than the nations,
and my statutes more than the countries that are round about her: for they have
refused my judgments and my statutes, they have not walked in them.
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; Because you multiplied more than the nations
that are round about you, and have not walked in my statutes, neither have kept
my judgments, neither have done according to the judgments of the nations that
are round about you;
8 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I,
am against you, and will execute judgments in the midst of you in the sight of
9 And I will do in you that which I have not done, and
whereto I will not do any more the like, because of all thine
10 Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of
you, and the sons shall eat their fathers; and I will execute judgments in
you, and the whole remnant of you will I scatter into all the winds.
Wherefore, as I live, says the Lord GOD; Surely, because you hast defiled my
sanctuary with all your detestable things, and with all thine abominations,
therefore will I also diminish you; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will
I have any pity.
12 A third part of you shall die with the pestilence, and
with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of you: and a third part shall
fall by the sword round about you and I will scatter a third part into all the
winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.
13 Thus shall mine anger be
accomplished, and I will cause my fury to rest upon them, and I will be
comforted: and they shall know that I the LORD have spoken it in my zeal, when I
have accomplished my fury in them.
14 Moreover I will make you waste, and a
reproach among the nations that are round about you, in the sight of all that
15 So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an instruction and an
astonishment to the nations that are round about you, when I shall execute
judgments in you in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes. I the LORD have
16 When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine, which
shall be for their destruction, and which I will send to destroy you: and I will
increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread:
17 So will
I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they shall bereave you; and
pestilence and blood shall pass through you; and I will bring the sword upon
you. I the LORD have spoken it.
Imagine 1/3rd of our population dying from war, another one
third 1/3rd dying from famine and disease, and a final 1/3rd going into captivity
, with 9/10ths dying in that captivity. Imagine a time similar to WW2
and the German occupation of many countries. Imagine the
holocaust as just a taste of what this time will be like because
this end time scenario WILL be the worst kind of disaster to ever
come upon the earth. Do you think it couldn't happen? This
will take place, going so far as to bring the very survival of
ANY life on this planet into question.
Jer 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. ("Jacob" is an old name for the father of the 12 tribes, (Gen 30) which was changed to Israel."Gen 32:28 And he said, your name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast you power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.)
Joel 2:2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
Matt 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved (alive): but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
Jer 19:9 (breaking into a prophecy concerning Jerusalem and all her "towns" - see vs. 15) And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness, wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall straiten them.
See also Matthew 24, Luke 13, Mark 21 and Revelation for more details about these events.
This is the time known as "The Great Tribulation."
This will be a time that will cause grown people to be paralyzed
with fear, families to be broken apart, causing even children to
be eaten by adults, even by their own parents. The sad truth is
that it is going to take THIS kind of reality to bring a
self-righteous, vain, rebellious and proud people to their
senses. Mankind responds to force, and it seems little else. God
has been warning the people of earth for centuries of what will
happen if we continue on the path that leads away from His
NOT the false religious concepts that prevail in this world,
but the real truth of who and what God is, and His plan for
mankind. The whole purpose for life is to become LIKE God, to be
His offspring, His children. We have chosen to go our own way,
build our own society and rules, and thus, have to live with the
consequences of these choices, TO THE END.
The GOOD news about all this is that God WILL intervene in
these events at the right time to STOP the total destruction of
life on earth. However, this won't occur before mankind
experiences the worst time of all history. This is the time of
which we warn you of, RIGHT NOW, RIGHT HERE.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. YOU HAVE THE FREE CHOICE TO PROVE ALL
THIS OR IGNORE IT. THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
If you choose to look into the only road to life, study these
pages and your Bible. The truth IS there, but you have to WANT it
enough to seek it with your whole heart. Don't be afraid of
it, don't despise it, don't curse it. Since it IS the
ONLY truth, what have you to lose by applying yourself to it?
If you choose to ignore this, PLEASE, remember these words of
hope... that the Great God exists, and WILL intervene in YOUR
life, whether you live through it to see it in this life, or not.
If you find yourself in circumstances beyond comprehension,
REMEMBER that there IS A GOD WHO CARES, AND WHO HAS A PLAN THAT
INCLUDES YOU AND EVERY PERSON WHO HAS EVER LIVED.
Don't allow any experience, or man, to take this hope
away from you. It is real, and WILL occur. Those are the simple
facts. You now have a choice to make. Look back on this moment
with peace and contentment, rather than extreme regret if you find yourself in
the middle of hell on earth. NO, you WON'T be lost forever,
OR roast in "hell" forever. You just have to choose NOW
between God's way of life NOW, or God's way of life AFTER
The whole world will be caught by surprise by these events.
It won't be something that you will be blatantly obvious,
although it is occurring if you know where to look NOW. It will
happen suddenly, without warning, and with extreme fury and
Is this just a ploy to scare you into action just to save
your life? NO! Fear isn't the motive. Besides, fear alone
WON'T save you OR motivate you to seek the truth. It is just
a reminder of reality and the affects of wrong choices. Life will
go on as usual, until that time arrives...
Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man... (continue reading this scripture)
THEN, it will be too
late to escape it, and to be protected by the only power in the
universe that CAN protect you.
Stop and look around, listen to the world news, watch what is
taking place and where it is leading. Educate yourself on what
the Bible tells us about the end time. Consider our society and
its morals. Consider the financial house of cards so many have
their entire financial lives wrapped up in. Consider
America's world standing and how many countries despise us
and even hate us. Consider Europe's slow break with the US.
There is SO much taking place right under America's nose yet
she is blissfully unconscious to it all.
The best example I can refer to is the first movie of "The Matrix." In this movie,
human life was a computer generated cyberworld in which human
beings were being fed their lives and kept happy, all-the-while
they were oblivious to the fact that they were in incubators,
being used by the powers-that-be for their own ends. Most
Americans are in that same situation of being ignorant and
unconscious of the world around them and the truth that is
unfolding. Only those who wake out of this blindness will be able
to do anything to prepare themselves and their families. The sad
thing is, most won't do anything!
Ezek 7:19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumbling block of their iniquity.
There will come a time when even finances and wealth will be useless and no help to anyone. The ONLY help in the Universe will be the power of God and a relationship with Him...
Rev 12:14 And to the woman (Church - group of God's people) were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, (3 and a half year tribulation time) from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Some of God's people (the wise virgins) will be protected and some will have ignored their relationship with the true God and have to make up for it in the tribulation. The whole scenario describing these events is almost an exact duplicate of God's deliverance of ancient Israel from Pharaoh and how God protected them using the Earth.
Suffice it to say for now that God expects us to be watching world events and to be "about our Father's business... that of obedience to His laws and complying to His training. without that, we will NOT see His kingdom.
