Hi friends! Before we turn our sights to Thanksgiving later this week, let’s do a mini-series on Where is America in Bible Prophecy? But, let’s also cut to the chase: nowhere does the Bible mention America, and it is a far reach to believe America is inferred to any significant measure in Scripture.
That leads me to agree with most prophecy experts that America simply has little impact when it all comes down in the end.
Nonetheless, it is difficult to argue against the fact that America has long been a world superpower. Moreover, America has been (and still is) the most prolific exporter of Chrisitian missionaries and ministries around the world. To say America has had no imfluence on the world stage, particularly when it comes to spreading the good news of Jesus Christ, is simply ridiculous. God established our nation on Christian principles, and He has been faithful in using an imperfect nation to carry His story, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to the uttermost parts of the world.
However, over the course of time, America has allowed those Christian values to fall by the wayside in favor of humanism. Evolution is taught as fact in our schools. Prayer has been all but abolished in public places. Abortion is legal. Lawlessness has become the norm. Cheating is justified. “Right” is now determined by majority opinion rather than by God’s standard of right and wrong, good and evil.
So, we see the proliferation of evil in ways we never expected. It is bigger than an election problem. It is bigger than the fight against socialism. It is the onslaught of lawlessness and a global agenda to usher in a New World Order. We are simply seeing what the Bible has told us for centuries would happen. Here is the key: lawlessnes and NWO fail if America, the bastion of Judeo-Christian principles, stands strong on our foundation. America fails if we don’t. Thus, globalists have set their sights on the final stronghold. Their agenda is clear and no longer hidden: America and its Christian values must be taken down. That is the battle now staged as we have never seen it before.
Let’s start with the current push for socialism in America…
Socialism demands a victim class. Del Tackett, creator and producer of The Truth Project (and his most recent The Engagement Project), is well-versed and articulate in explaining what we see in our world today, the impact it has, and the Biblical truth to be applied. He hit the nail on the head in a recent post, and I implore you to read it:
We must wake up to Biblical truth to have any chance of rescuing our nation from the clutches of socialism. Politics will not free us. Trump in the White House will not save us. Only the truth of God’s Word will.
Furthermore, only a nation built on strong Judeo-Christian values will stand strong with Israel. Ultimately, that is the standard upon which all nations will be judged! (See Joel 3:1-2) Bible students know and understand that, in the end, Israel will stand alone as they face an onslaught from the north. (See Ezekiel 38-39) Neither the US nor any other nation will stand with them. They will stand totally alone.
How soon will that event occur? We don’t know, but the stage is set! If America rises from the current push toward socialism and re-establishes some sense of godliness, might that invasion be stayed for a season? Maybe, maybe not. But the only chance America has to continue standing strong with Israel is to stave off that radical push.
It is my belief that if America fails in these days to uphold its founding values, America will cease to be the stable, shining light on a hill. Our influence on the world stage will disapper, and the nation as we know it, will fade away.
For decades, Christians have played defense…defending our faith. We are now running out of time. It’s time to go on offense! Our nation is on the verge of darkness and Christians must rise and shine the light. After all, it is light that reveals evil deeds done in darkness. We must fight!
11 Do not participate in the useless deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; 12 for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. 14 For this reason it says,
“Awake, sleeper,~Ephesians 5:11-14
And arise from the dead,
And Christ will shine on you.”
Our marching orders from the Apostle Paul:
…fight the good fight, 19 keeping faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and suffered shipwreck in regard to their faith.~! Timothy 1:18-19
Fight the good fight of faith…~! Timothy 6:12
7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; 8 in the future there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.~2 Timothy 4:7-8
To finish well, we must fight the good fight, and we must keep the faith! Then, the Lord, our righteous Judge, will award those of us who have loved His appearing!
Stay tuned tomorrow when we transition from the fight here in America, to the impact it has on Israel, the Middle East and, yes….America’s impact on end times according to Bible prophecy! See you then!
