Hello, and welcome to Faith is Hope,
Matthew 16:1-4 And the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and to test him (Jesus) they asked him to show them a sign from heaven. He answered them, “When it is evening, you say it will be fair weather, for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.” You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1- For everything, there is a season and a time for every matter under the sun. A time to be born, and a time to die. A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up, a time to weep, and a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance, a time to cast away stones, and a time to weather stones together, a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose, a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak, a time to love, and a time to hate, a time for war, and a time for peace.
In the spring, everything is made new. The trees begin to bud, animals are giving birth. Life is renewed. In the summer everything is growing, and it begins producing its fruits. In the fall harvest begins, and everything is gathered up, and separated. The weeds are burned while the fruits are stored up for winter when the world sleeps.
This is the parable Jesus spoke about in Matthew 13:24-30 and is explained later in verses 36-43. This age will come to an end. In Matthew 24 Jesus talks about all the things that will be taking place before his return. My God, look around you. Do any of you see any difference between what’s going on now and what was taking place in Sodom? The lies, deceit, chaos, confusion, sexual perversions, and immoralities of all kinds.
Children are being murdered in their schools because of their faith. If you believe in God you are the enemy of the state and the world. Why? Because some people now believe they’re God. God created everything, and when he created the animals, he made them male and female. God created man (male) and from a man brought forth woman (female) that’s it. Now, true certain fish, reptiles, amphibians, and insects can change their sex, but for mammals and human beings that’s just not possible. But some people think that they have the power to simply change what God has created. They’re putting themselves above God. Thinking they know more than God, and that they can fix what they believe God got wrong. And that is a very dangerous place to be.
Only God the Father knows the day and the hour of Christ’s return. But we’ve all been told what must happen before he does. The prophets of the old testament, Jesus, and his disciples in the new testament told us to watch the seasons. Do you see everything that’s going on all around us? And what’s coming won’t be a spring rain, a summer thunderstorm, or a winter blizzard. What’s coming is satan’s antichrist, and Satan himself.
We’ve all heard the phrase “One Nation Under God”. “In God We Trust”. America was built on the laws of, and belief in God. But those who serve satan are working to “fundamentally transform America”. If you build the foundation of your house on a rock, the rains fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it didn’t fall, because it had been founded on the rock. But if you fundamentally transform that house what will the foundation be? There are those who are working nonstop to destroy what God created. To destroy mankind, and the rights gave to them by God. God gives us the freedom to choose everything that we think, say, and do. We all have to answer for those choices, but they’re ours to make. Satan enslaves, he doesn’t give you a choice. You either worship him or die.
And so this battle begins. I’m not some fortune teller and I can’t see into the future. What I’ve been shown has come from God, not me. But I can tell you that America is standing on the verge of war. It’s not a war between democrats and republicans, conservatives and liberals. It’s a war between the truth and the lies and deceit we’re being told. It’s a war between good and evil, between God and Satan. I don’t care about politics, I care about the truth. Not my truth or your truth, or some government’s idea of truth, but God’s truth. God is truth, and that which is not the truth is not of God. This administration is not of God. It has shown itself to be corrupt, and deceitful. It lies to the very people it was meant to serve. But who does a lie serve? God or satan.
Now ask yourself, is our government, and this administration giving us the freedom to choose or are they taking that freedom away? Are you free to live your life according to your faith and beliefs or is your faith being attacked? Are you being forced to accept what others believe even though it goes against God, nature, and your faith? This administration, these elected officials don’t serve us the people. They serve themselves, and sin, they’re the children of Satan. They seek power and control. They’re perverse, and show nothing but contempt for those who do not bow down to them.
America isn’t perfect, nothing is. But this land of freedom, where all men are created equal. America, a nation of laws, is no more, and it will never be again. When those who make the laws, break the laws. And those who enforce and apply the laws equally and fairly stop. Then there is no law, and we stop being a civil society. And the law of nature takes over. Where only the strong survive. We will be hunted. We will be persecuted, even to death for Christ’s name’s sake. But salvation is ours through Jesus Christ.
Don’t set your eyes, on this earth, but on the promise of heaven, and eternity with God forever blessed by his love and mercy. Please, now more than ever, place yourself in God’s hands, and stay in his word. Don’t give into the pressure of the world, sin, and satan. We are not destined for God’s wrath, but for his love.
