“But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.” Ezekiel 18:24
THE TRAVAILS OF A NATION YIELDED UNTO THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS
“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” -Romans 6:16
In the midst of a drunken debauchery King Belshazzar, successor to King Nebuchadnezzar, of Babylon flaunted his arrogance in the face of almighty God by using the sacred silver and golden vessels taken from Solomon’s Temple to praise 'the gods of gold and silver, brass, iron, wood, and stone'. Immediately upon the sacrilege a disembodied hand appeared, to the astonishment of the drunken revelers, and inscribed upon the wall the words: mina, mina, shekel, half-mina. None in the Kingdom could decipher those words, but Daniel the exiled Jew previously taken from Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar could and did.
Daniel admonished the King of the folly of his arrogant blasphemy, and then rendered an interpretation of the words that had been etched upon the wall by the hand of God thusly: mina, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end; shekel, you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting; half-mina, your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians. To the king the words were a portent of doom, as that very night Belshazzar was slain and his kingdom fell to the Medes and Persians.
The people of the United States are no less brazen; no less sacrilegious and no less profane than was Belshazzar and his drunken cohorts on the fateful night of his prophesied demise. And a righteous God can be no less condemning of the in your face hauteur and deliberate disdain of His sovereignty by the American people and their chosen leaders than He was of a pagan king.
Currently this nation is being pounded by climatological events of an increasingly frightening, if not downright terrifying, nature. No corner of the nation is being spared the divinely directed judgments that are being rained down upon an apostate and recalcitrant people.
Daily violent tornadoes rip the middle sections of the mainland. These meandering black gigantisms rumble like freight trains across the plains leaving in their deadly wake ribbons of rubble, fields of debris, uprooted trees, and dead bodies. Elsewhere raging floods inundate hundreds of thousands of acres, submerging homes, businesses, and institutional buildings in stinking black muck. While in the West and Southwest hellish flames devour vast sections of land and gobble up homes, buildings, wild life, and domestic livestock.
It would seem that gone are the days when our benevolent God delivered gentle spring rains, balmy breezes, sun-soaked days and peaceful starry nights upon this land; such have been replaced by unrelenting torrents of wind driven rain and bombardments of hailstones immense in size and punitive in nature. The continual displacement of climatological records denotes the increasing intensity in destructiveness and size of these anomalies of nature. Peaceful days across the breadth of this nation are currently non-existent; henceforth this nation will not know a day of serenity.
If we could peer into the black rampaging clouds, the muddy depths of the murky waters, or the stinging smoke of the run-a-way conflagrations we would find inscribed within these dreaded manifests of God’s anger these words, “you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.”
SOME WRITE LETTERS
I often receive letters from those who come across my writings on the internet. Some read my writings because they value and understand God’s truth; others hate the truth and would rather believe the lies of illogical men. It is these that God has delivered unto false beliefs: "And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie." -2 Thessalonians 2:11
I am not sure as to the exact number of those who fail to understand what is coming upon this nation, but believe it to be the great majority of the people. If they understand nothing else they certainly should be aware of the continuum of catastrophic events that is being rained down upon this filthy and apostate nation, these are not happenstance, nor are they naturally occurring events. They are wrought by the hand of God and meant to correct a sin-laden people - a people, it seems, that refuse to be corrected.
Often I receive comments to the effect that my use of “big” words limits my readership. Personally I think that it is the bringing forth of God’s word in this fallen society that limits my readership, an apostate people hates the word of God.
I have little patience for those who claim that the words of my articles are difficult. This points up the fact that our socialist educational system that costs billions in taxpayer dollars is totally worthless and fails miserably in its mission to educate the people. It also says that those who fail to understand are too lazy to educate themselves. I have little tolerance for slothful people; there is no excuse for such ignorance. A diligent man will study and read that he might improve his understanding and comprehension. I would suggest that these people start with the Holy Bible, but they refuse to study the Words of God in order to understand their meaning in relation to their lives.
So it is that I refuse to revert to Dick and Jane prose when I write these messages. I left the “See Dick run” See Jane jump” and “See Spot catch the ball” vernacular back in first grade.
HERE’S HOW IT SHAKES OUT
There comes a time when nations reach the saturation point in regard to sin and apostasy. When that time arrives the nation will effectually be a deprived and divested nation of little account; or it will disappear altogether. This nation has reached that point in time and since the people are stiff-necked and married to worldly lusts there is no hope for it. Since God doesn't visit miracles on an unrepentant people this nation is not just on the ropes, it is out on its feet.
no regard or respect for this nation, in fact I have come to actually
loathe its filthiness and I do not grieve its soon coming demise. First
loyalty belongs to the Lord and I tire of hearing this God and Country
thing. It’s all for God; this world and the nations of it have nothing
to offer. It has come to a point that true believers in the Lord Jesus
Christ are ashamed to be a part of such a putrid environment.
The articles that I write are labeled opinion articles, but I believe every word that I set down in them.
DEPRAVITY REINS AND ENTERTAINS
“Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.” -Matthew 7:16-17
Have you noticed the infatuation, nay the absolute fascination with the killing of human beings in this nation. People can’t seem to get enough of the mayhem and the gore. Serial killers and mass killings have come to be endemic, and the news media follows every outbreak with intense and rabid attention. They headline the butcheries of these demonic lunatics in order to titillate the perverse interest of a people seemingly gone over to the same perverted entertainment lust that was a part of the psyche of the people of the Roman Empire in its final days.
Perhaps it is a similar mind and soul of the people situation that explains the lack of guilt and remorse in this nation over the actual murder, in the most heinous of ways, of thirty-eight million babies since 1973. Some say that the number of baby slayings is much closer to fifty-one million and that may very well be the case. Whatever the instance this savage carnage upon living babies certainly does not bother the conscience of the majority of the people, this wickedness alone warrants the ferocious destruction being poured out upon this society.
HEY MA! HEY PA! COME WATCH THE FUN
SICK MINDS - SICK NATION
Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same. -Job 4:8
Daily the people settle in front of their TV’s and movie screens to view the latest visual wrinkle in regard to murder, rape, adultery, fornication, sodomy, corruption and mayhem. Indeed the television and movie producers rake in millions from the production of prurience and violence.
It is mindful of the sick days of the Roman Empire when the people flocked to the stadiums by the hundreds of thousands to enjoy a day in the sun viewing the spilling of blood and the dismemberment and strewing of the entrails of humans and animals. If they were lucky they might enjoy the excitement of a beheading or two. One wonders if they dragged their children to the festivities - you know just a day of good old family fun.
We know of course that our children are not banned from the theatres and the living and family rooms of this nation. Why shelter them from what has become the norm seems to be the prevailing thought. After all they must know the harshness of reality. Oh, by the way please pass the popcorn…
WHERE HAVE WE COME AND WHAT LIES AT THE END OF THE JOURNEY?
For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: -Hosea 8:7
Often in Biblical times when nations had gone over to a complete rejection of God’s laws and strictures and were immersed in iniquity to a point of irrevocability God would deliver them into the captivity of heathen kings as punishment. Under the domination of such their lives were hard as they were subject to the depredations of pagan rulers who detested their very existence. I submit that such captivity and domination has already come upon the people of this nation. Hey! Wait a minute you say…we’re not in captivity and subject to a foreign king. Yes you are. You are in the grasp of a non-indigenous alien of heathen demeanor and totalitarian propensities and his name is Obama.
Not only that dear reader, you will remain under such tyranny as your delusional indigenous leaders of the past forty-eight years and more have enabled the importation of a great multitude of culturally unassimilated aliens whose enfranchisement by the stupid politicos of yesterday and today will keep this interloping foreign tyrant in power.
I have previously written of the social filthiness that has helped to bring about our current predicament, now let’s do a quick review of where we are under our present totalitarian socialist governance.
Your government has enabled the inclusion of women in all of the combat branches of the military services. Your government has enabled the inclusion of sodomites in all of the branches of the military services. Your government has usurped authority over the National Guards of all the states, and uses the members thereof as cannon fodder in their unconstitutional guerilla wars and illegal interventions.
Unable to fill the ranks of the regular military services via the volunteer route these conscienceless reprobates entice economically stressed young men and women into the National Guard with monetary and educational inducements, and then ship them off to foreign hell holes where under the command of the federal military services they are either killed or disabled for life.
A nation such as we have become cannot long stand. God has numbered the days of our kingdom and will bring it to an end.

“The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.” -Zephaniah 1:14-18
