America Ignored God’s Judgment!

Is America Ignoring Judgment?

Hurricane“…For when the earth experiences Thy judgments the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness. Though the wicked is shown favor, He does not learn righteousness: He deals unjustly in the land of uprightness, and does not perceive the majesty of the Lord. Is. 26: 9-10

In my secret place late on the night on December 23, 2004, I fell under a very strong unction of Holy Spirit to pray for the Christians in Indonesia who were being persecuted and even murdered by Muslim extremists. In a sense there was an ethnic cleansing in progress and Christians were being beheaded by the sword in an all out attempt to eliminate the Christian church in this area.

There is no greater call of God than to follow the unction of Holy Spirit to intercede on the behalf of another.

As I sat in a chair staring out the picture window into the dark of night, I cried out for an open door for the gospel to penetrate this area and for God to do whatever it takes to get the gospel into these areas and to deliver the saints from being murdered. I prayed until I felt a release from Holy Spirit and then retired for the night. “The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.” James 5:16

On Sunday Morning, December 26, 2004, just before leaving for church, I turned on the TV and saw a news report of a 8.9 -9.0 earthquake in the Indonesian region and that a strong tsunami had been generated. I told my wife this will be a big event and cause allot of damage and loss of life. How little did I know how much death and damage this event would cause! The news for days and even weeks from this region revealed the damage and death toll from the strong tsunami. Truly, a tragedy and a judgment of God was released upon the earth.

With a magnitude between 9.1-9.3 and a duration of 8.3 – 10 minutes, the Indonesian earthquake was the second strongest ever recorded. It caused the entire planet to vibrate as much as 1 cm (0.4 inches) triggering other earthquakes as far away as Alaska. The marker at the North Pole was relocated about one meter to accommodate for the shift in the earth’s poles. The atomic clock was adjusted afterwards because the energy released by the powerful earthquake caused the earth to totter, thus slowing the earth’s rotation about 1 second. Know that only God can shake the earth!

He established the earth upon its foundations, So that it will not totter forever and ever. Ps. 104:5

The 20 meter uplift in the seabed floor generated the strongest tsunami ever recorded with waves of 30 meters (100 ft) high in some communities. The earthquake is estimated to have released the energy above the seabed floor at 26.3 megatons of TNT. This energy is equivalent to over 1502 times that of the Hiroshima type atomic bombs, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, impacting millions of people in eleven countries. The energy of the tsunami sent a wave around the world. The U.S. Geological Survey death toll now stands at a staggering 229,866 people killed.

Banda Ache Tsunami Before_After1

The network news began to broadcast satellite images of the damage caused by the force of the tsunami. One image in particular caught my eye when I saw a photo taken from a satellite of Banda Ache. In the photo, I saw the outline of the geographical shape of the United States; I knew God had put it there as a warning for America. I knew in my spirit that America was going to experience a similar disaster sometime in the future. I didn’t know when or how, but I knew a judgment from God was coming to America.

 

Prophetic Comprehension 101

Prophets have a comprehension of prophetic matters and see prophetic things in the world around them. It may be something on the news, TV show, commercials, photos, reading news releases, they see God in everything. A recent example of this was in the June 8, 2009 news headlines that read, “Sotomayor breaks ankle at New York City airport en route to Washington for Senate meetings.” When I read that, I saw prophetically that her foundational beliefs are not what our forefathers established. Even before her “take-off” her right ankle breaks which represents her foundation and direction. She continued on as she hobbled through her confirmation interviews in Washington. This event leads me to believe this appointee is not going to vote along the lines of our Constitution. She will definitely go left on her rulings.

Surely the Lord God does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7

Judgment Warning

While I was in prayer on Friday, December 30, 2004, the same week the Indonesian tsunami occurred, as I was silent before the Lord, I heard the Lord say to me, “America should take this as a warning!” He implied the Indonesian tsunami. I felt my heart sink and felt fear and reverence of the Lord. I also knew that America and the rest of the world wouldn’t consider the Indonesian tsunami as a judgment of God even though the level of destruction and death was of biblical proportions, it would go ignored.

Judgment Came in 2005

In the hurricane season of 2005 America suffered three powerful hurricanes of which Katrina was the first. On Sunday morning, August 28, 2005, when I saw Katrina increase in strength from a category 2 to a category 5 hurricane almost overnight, I knew this was a storm of judgment to come upon America. Katrina was briefly the fourth most intense Atlantic hurricane on record on August 28 and soon to be surpassed by hurricanes Rita and Wilma in the following weeks, which made this the most intense hurricane season going back to 1850. Was this going to be America’s tsunami?

Katrina’s storm surge heights at landfall peaking at around 25 feet as they came ashore, which were the highest ever recorded in U.S. history, surpassing the previous height set by Hurricane Camille in 1969. Katrina was also the largest hurricane of its strength to approach the United States in recorded history; its massive size caused devastation over 100 plus miles from the center. The impact of the storm surge caused major or catastrophic damage along the coastlines of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, including the cities of Mobile, Alabama, Biloxi and Gulfport, Mississippi.

I heard several TV news reporters declaring Katrina as ‘America’s tsunami’ without even knowing how prophetic their words were at the time. Katrina brought America the destruction of cites and the displacement of millions of people. A total of 1723 people perished in Katrina along with being the costliest storm damage ever recorded estimated at 75 billion in Louisiana and 105 billion in Mississippi. Katrina changed the way people think about living on the coast which was made all the more evident when Rita at a category 5 caused a massive fear driven evacuation of more than a million people from the Texas gulf coast alone.

America suffered the judgment by God’s hand and ignored it all together. When Katrina was approaching, still hours away, I heard many well-meaning Christians praying for it to be still and go away because they didn’t understand that this was the judging hand of God in action. In a discussion with my pastor recently on the subject of Katrina, he said he was also praying for Katrina not to harm America when he heard God say to him, “It will happen.”

Church Leaders Debate

Days of NoahOn one Christian TV program, I watched a select panel debate the question, “Whether Katrina was a judgment from God or not?” One member of the panel, who is a known prophet of God, said Katrina was a judgment of God but later backed away from his statement when the others on the panel refuted him.

If the people who present themselves as world and national church leader aren’t watching, can’t see or won’t proclaim what God is doing in these last days, are they any different from the religious people during Jesus’ earthly ministry? Jesus said they are as the blind guides leading the blind. Jesus spoke of the religious leadership of his day like this:

“You hypocrites, rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you: ‘THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME. BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.’ “After Jesus called the crowd to Him, He said to them, “Hear and understand.”{It is} not what enters into the mouth {that} defiles the man, but what proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man.” Then the disciples came and said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this statement?” But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted.” “Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” Mat. 15:7-14

God has never been politically correct nor will He be so. He is the God that changes not. Jesus Christ {is} the same yesterday and today and forever. Heb. 13:8 I believe most world and national ministries prefer not to discuss the subject of God’s judgment fearing that a firestorm of criticism might be launched against them. It’s a sign of our times; it’s just not politically correct to pronounce that God judges nations according to their deeds no matter how scriptural it is.

Jesus said, “For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Mat. 24: 37-39

What did they not understand until it was too late? Judgment! God had pronounced His judgment upon them and was going to flood the entire earth unless they repented and turned from their wickedness. They ignored the warnings! They ignored the preacher Noah speaking the words of warning from God. They chose to continue to do what they wanted to do rather than turn from evil.

I see the Church, asleep, deaf, blind and blemished as it is busily carrying on without adjusting its course as if the world will continue on forever, and all the signs of the times and the word of the Lord is saying to repent, to come out from among them or we will suffer the same wrath appointed to the wicked.

rev-317To the Laodicean church Jesus said, “‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot.’So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.’Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and {that} the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. ‘Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. ‘He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’ “Rev. 3:15-22

When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth [his] sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: Mat. 25:31-34, 42 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Summary

Indeed we do live and have our being under God’s grace. However, a sinful nation is a sinful nation and God is a God of justice that changes not. He will judge nation by nation according to each nation’s deeds. If God doesn’t judge America then He would have to go back and apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.

No nation can be great if sin goes unchecked. God had made a promise that Abraham would become a great nation, so God let Abraham in on the pending destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. In a sense Sodom and Gomorrah were stinking to high heaven and God came to confirm that indeed this was the case. He sent two scout angels who validated the sin and got the righteous ones out of way of God’s judgment.

“since Abraham will surely become a great and mighty nation, and in him all the nations of the earth will be blessed?”For I have chosen him, so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice, so that the LORD may bring upon Abraham what He has spoken about him.” And the LORD said, “The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great, and their sin is exceedingly grave.”I will go down now, and see if they have done entirely according to its outcry, which has come to Me; and if not, I will know.” Gen. 18:18-21

America is no longer a God-fearing nation nor resembles what our founding fathers established under the leadership of God’s truth and sovereign hand. Godly judgments will continue upon our nation until we repent of our wickedness and return to God. In the end there will only be two belief systems.

Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; {that is,} the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. 2 Th. 2:8-12

I believe America will turn back to God eventually but it will not be before the light of this great nation has all but been extinguished. Many climatologists will excuse the judgments as “global warming” and not see the hand of God at work. America will see many more harsh judgments in the coming months and years with ever increasing severity, even to the point of invasion from foreign armies dividing the nation in half. Internal strife and violent distractions will cause our leadership to turn their watchful focus from foreign threats to internal disruptions at a time when our enemies are saying, “Peace and Safety”.

Prophecy 6-10-09

Indeed I have and will continue to judge this nation for as a harlot chases after her fleshly needs, so does this nation. I created America to be the jewel among the nations and she has become a hard stone which no longer shimmers in My light. The dullness in her leadership is staggering and causes me to wave my hand in front of their faces, but yet they do not see the ways of the Lord.

I tell the ones who name Me as Lord, to run for My cover and hide for a little while for there is a season coming upon this nation that will cause you to fear and tremble if it wasn’t for My covering. Draw near to Me, get ever closer to Me and you will find peace and rest for your weariness. The faith of yesterday will not be enough for the days ahead. You must grow in your faith and increase in hearing My voice for it is by hearing that you will know what to do.

Get your own oil and do not wait or depend on someone else, for they will only have enough oil for themselves. You must learn to carry your own walk in Me and not be a burden to others. I Am the Lord that cares for you. Trust in Me and Grow up now! Come into your faith! Be established as My Bride prepares for My return! The one that awaits to come is stirring in His chamber. Be still and listen for His voice and you will hear Him say, “Make yourself ready for the One who comes as a thief in the night!”

  • Fall On Me (Angelic Visitation)

    policemanIn the night of January 27, 2008, during the fourth watch (3:00 AM -6:00 AM), I was awakened by the presence of an angel standing at the foot of the bed. I rose up and said, “Lord open my eyes to see” and then I saw the angel with my spiritual eyes. He was dressed in dark blue police uniform. I waited for a few moments and sensed that there was nothing required of me at that moment and went back to sleep.

    Our daughter, Wendy was dropped off at our house by her husband that same morning. We asked her when we needed to give her a ride to work and she said she was going to hang around for a while. Wendy is a great employee and really loves her job so this struck me as very odd for her.

    I went upstairs to pray for wisdom and thought about the angelic visitor, which came to me early that morning. I asked the Father, “What does a policeman angel come to do? “ He said, “Arrest!” Then He gave me the song, “Fall On Me” performed by the “Shekinah Glory Ministry”. It had to be that song performed by that choir. I knew I had to find this CD immediately and play it. I grabbed it and ran downstairs and as I breezed past Wendy I said, “All I know is that I’ve got to play “Fall On Me” and I’ve got to play it now“!

    As the music began to play and the words came forth:
    Fall on meFall on me Let your manifested glory fall on me…
    The holy presence of God began to fall on me. I now was in the arms of the “policeman angel” right there in the den. I was being arrested by an angel sent by God, while I bowed at the sofa.

    The spirit of travail fell on me and I began to go into levels of travail I didn’t know existed. I felt a powerful squeezing sensation all over my body, but mostly on my head. I was in a head lock by an angel of God, an arresting angel.

    As the songs on the CD played one by one and the intensity of the music would rise and fall, the intensity of the travail followed. At the end of the tenth song the spirit of travail lifted. When I rose up ad looked for Wendy, I saw her laying in tears on the kitchen floor. She had been overcome by the His presence and power also.

    Young Choir Members SingingI believe the spirit of travail is one of the most holy things of God and so powerful when He moves on the human spirit man to intercede on behalf of a soul in need. As the words in the song say, “Some soul is depending on you Lord”, “Someone one is looking to mend a broken heart”, “Someone is lonely and they need you to comfort them”, “Someone’s lost and they need your guidance”.

    As soon as the spirit of travail came it lifted after the tenth song finished on the CD titled “Holy of Holies”. The glorious manifestation lasted about fifty minutes.

    My dear saints of God, may we never forget what a compassionate God we serve. My prayer is that we all come to the knowledge of Him. Will you we seek to know who He is, His nature, and His character and to know the depths of His love beyond all understanding?
