Be Born Again in the Spirit

'But what saith it? The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.""

These are the Days of Vengeance

Most of my fellow Americans have this thing about them that makes them always look at a glass and believe that it is half full rather than half empty.  I have always believed that way myself and indeed, even in these times that are bad and destined for much worse, I can always find a promise from God that renews my hope, faith and determination to spread his Word.

America has been exceptional throughout her existence and even today, America is the place that attracts folks from all around the world looking for a better life.  All of that is over now....I mean, they are still coming in but now they have to compete with the rest of us for the scraps that our master lets fall from his banquet table. 

Mass media including small town newspapers across the land have been spreading a tale of recovery.  Who has been grocery, clothing or gas shopping lately?  Are we in recovery or do you believe like me that things are getting worse pay day to pay day and week to week.  And yet, we accept the lies, snuggle back down in our naps and pretend everything is going to get better all by itself.

Everything these days is about agenda.  Hell, one cannot even watch any of our favorite tv shows without some Hollywood goober instilling liberal views (or agenda crap) and spoiling the content of the show for half of us...for example, when on NCIS Jethro Gibb's dad sees his gun and about pees his pants in fear and Abby says 'bad gun, bad gun'.  Kind of spoils the show for American patriots. Similarly, are the actors and singers whose work I may have enjoyed in the past who just couldn't keep to the things they know how to do and have to open their  mouths and show us how truly stupid they are.  People like Springsteen, Matt Damon and so many folks like Colin Powell who I admired once but now shows his patriotism to be but skin (color) deep. Who would have guessed Powell was racist...oh wait...he says only whites can be racist.  What a moron.

I love America and 66 years into my life, I can honestly say there is not a place on the earth where I would rather be.  Even now, with Obama in office and civil war on the horizon, there is not another country on earth I would rather fight for more.

As the born again in the Spirit Christian that I truly am and faith filled to boot I know that our days on this earth as we know it are numbered.  I do not know how much of the really horrendous stuff that is to take place leading up to Armageddon Christians will be subjected to.  I do know that we are in the season with the hour and day known only to the father for our departure.

Some scriptural facts include the fact that the generation alive to see the rebirth of the nation of Israel will not pass before Christ returns.  Israel was born in 1948 and I was born in generation is getting old.  Everyone has heard the gospel responses by Christ when Matthew and Luke asked about the signs of the time of the end....things such as wars, rumors of war, pestilences, earthquakes and all the rest are to increase in both frequency and sharpness just like a pregnant woman as she approaches the time of her delivery.  But the end is not yet.

The verses leading up to Luke 21:20 describe a lot of bad things set to happen to the Jew and by extension, later followers of Jesus Christ.  A lot of bad things.  And since the time those words were written, a lot of bad things have already happened to the Jew and to Christians worldwide.  To a degree, considering one time we used to honor God in America, we have been sheltered largely due to the faith of our founders and our willingness to follow what they believed.  Everyone can see where we are today.... not quite so exceptional anymore.

Luke 21:20 reads "And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies then know that the desolation thereof is nigh".  This is to tell you to pay attention to Israel.  Regardless of misguided thoughts of many American religionists....Christianity has not replaced the Jew as the 'apple of God's eye' and indeed Christians are cautioned not to be high minded about this very subject.  I am providing a link to a blog I wrote in September of 2011, also on that subject. 

But to get back with Luke, verse 21 and 22 follows thusly..."Then let them which are in Judea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.  For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled."

Those things include the rapture or taking up of the saints and indeed this must take place before the anti-Christ can even be revealed.  The anti-Christ is the one who is to cut the 7 year peace deal with Israel after the events of Ezekiel 38 & 39.  I am not sure where  Isaiah 17:1 falls in but Damascus will be destroyed totally over the course of a single evening.  Verse 14 reads "And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not.  This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us". Verse one reads "The burden of Damascus.  Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap".

I believe that Isaiah could be a precursor to that necessary peace deal with Israel which will serve to put Israel in that state of mind wherein they feel they can live in 'unwalled villages' and not be fearful.  This is the stage that must be set prior to the Gog, Magog war or Armageddon if you will. Ezekiel 38 & 39 explains it all quite well.  It is fascinating to watch the pieces of that time fall in place, the alliances, the destruction of America from within which is also scriptural.  For the uninitiated, Ezekiel 38 & 39 war, Armageddon....this is Great Tribulation stuff.  You do not want to be here.

So then, instead of President Obama prying my guns from my cold dead fingers, I believe I will join the father, son and Holy Ghost and jump that last train to the, bye, bye Miss America were a good old girl.  I hope all my friends and family can join me.  Romans 10:8-10 says it all.  Believe.  Keep your eyes on Israel....pray for the peace of Jerusalem....and God bless!
