“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast…And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
A REASONABLE PEOPLE
American pride themselves on being reasonable people.
(Never mind that pride is a sin.)
Again, Americans are reasonable and being reasonable is held to be a virtue. In many places (particularly, many churches), reasonableness is a virtue valued above most all others.
Americans are like most men: they LOVE it when someone says nice things about them–even if those things are not true.
And so it is that most Americans are immersed in the falsehood that their nation is/has been a “Christian nation.”
In spite of reams of evidence to the contrary; in spite of there being NOWHERE in ANY document of the United States (Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Articles of Confederation, etc) even the MENTION of Jesus Christ; even with the fairly plain evidence the USA is a key component of the one-world beast system: Americans STILL cling to the lie of their “Christian country.”
It’s is likely they will cling to their delusion clear to the end. Even as the Word of God declares that the whole world worships the dragon, most Americans will insist they are worshiping God and Jesus.
What’s sad about this: ALL who do not have a love for the truth will be sent strong delusion; ALL will be damned.
Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200.
It sad because most will be chattering away about the same things they chatter about now, except their strong delusion will preclude their having a chance at repenting. Their strong delusion will condemn them.
And it’s all so NEEDLESS.
IF ONLY they had had a love of the truth.
Does this sound too harsh?
“You’re not being reasonable! We’re pretty good people. Sure, some of us have different interpretations, but there’s plenty of experts and famous “men of God” who agree with us! Be reasonable!”
Like the unsaved, hopeless sinner proudly pointing out he loves his mother and is kind to animals as proof he’s a “good person,” Americans trot out the number of churches (regardless of what kind of cults may occupy those buildings), how many people claim they “know” Jesus, the number of missionaries, the number of stores where one can buy a Bible and a hundred other inconsequential items as proof we’re “not perfect, but we’re pretty good.”
IF ONLY that were true.
There are even those who point to the number of counterfeit Christian ministries and websites as “proof” the country is Christian!
ISRAEL AND THE USA
America need only look to pagan Israel and its pride of being “God’s chosen” WHILE they were crucifying the Son of God, Jesus Christ, to find a parallel of delusion as great as that which currently grips the USA. And to all those who insist it was only the leadership of the Pharisees and not the average Jew who was wicked, one only need look at the innumerable times Jesus cast out demons from the possessed multitudes.
Countless times from ordinary people in every walk of life. Like 2016 America, Israel of Jesus’ time was a land of devils.
The only difference?
At least the rank-and-file Israelites realized they had a problem.
The synagogue of Satan.
And so, the synagogue of Satan, using every tool at its command whispers constantly into the ears of Americans:
“You know, you’re a chosen people. You’re a Christian country. Anyone who tells you differently is wrong. You all are good people. Not perfect, but pretty good. Look at all the Bibles! Why, if it’s wasn’t for the gold old USA, think of how many people in these Muslim, heathen countries around the world would have perished!”
And Americans eat it up.
The people sit in pagan temples built with hands, some even believing they worship God Almighty each Sunday; sharing with each other the most popular fables told by the local wolf. They rarely hear the gospel: indeed, most can’t even tell you what the gospel is.
So how in world can they share it?
Outside the walls of their little slice of apostasy, they see the OBVIOUSLY APOSTATE CHURCHES which have been raised up all through the land.
Those satanic creations have been raised up for one reason and one reason only: to make their own idolatrous social clubs look “godly.”
“Hey, be reasonable! We’re not perfect but we’re pretty darn good!”
At this point, one fears there is NO warning which will be heeded by the vast majority.
Particularly to those who inhabit the churches.
And one is reluctant to speak so frankly about those in the apostate churches: most of the church-goers are so friendly and bright. But it is not love to fail to warn those who are perishing: it is hate.
And more importantly, to fail to warn them is disobedience. And this is NOT the time for disobedience of any kind.
“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”
The mockers are the majority.
The scoffers are the rich and celebrated.
The lost are convinced they have been found.
“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”
The world teeters on the brink of the 42 months of the man of sin.
And everyone is living large in a land of milk and honey, sitting in high cotton and loving on Uncle Sugar, their own personal Santa Claus. Oh, there’s some bumps in the road ahead and there’s a few who are worried their 401Ks will be lost. But overall, SURELY we’ve still got some time before the fires of the forces of chaos begin?
But one is to pray for the multitudes, especially for those who sit in the churches, who pay their tithes, who sing their occult-tinged “praise and worship” songs, who enjoy their dabbling with the demonic; who smile and shake hands as witchcraft is slyly added bit-by-bit to their rituals; as they promenade down the broad and wide way of men.
The Bible has long since ceased having much meaning to many–outside of their own tortured “MODERN” interpretations.
“Sell all my stuff? God doesn’t expect me to do that! Come one! This is 2016! How will I live? How will I be able to pay my tithe? How can I buy my pot luck dish for the dinner?”
‘Be reasonable‘ is one of Satan’s most convincing arguments. It’s one of his strongest arguments for dismissing the Word of God in favor of the latest fashion of men.
And Americans are nothing if not the most reasonable of people.
Particularly in 2016.
ESPECIALLY in a country which once upon a time was called the United States of America.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
