I just watched a portion of this moving worship song performed by Hillsong:
Look at all the people gathered together in worship and praise to our heavenly, exalted King! It is awesome and inspiring.
But why are Christians being defeated left and right in the culture wars? Why, with our vastly superior numbers, are we losing ground at an astonishingly furious rate? Why are our enemies, infinitesimally small in comparison, soundly beating us at every turn?
As I watch this worship video and see the thousands upon thousands gathered in praise, I wonder, “Where are they when it comes to fighting the gross injustice of abortion? Why are few abortion clinics around the world where Christians are in the majority of the population have few—if any—Christians standing in front of them trying to save innocent lives?”
Or how about the relatively new unspeakable abomination of the Drag Queen Story Hour’s where homosexual drag performers are performing for children as young as two years old? Why are the LGBTQ activists who put on these perversions always outnumbering the Christians who are bold and loving enough to confront them? Why are so very few of our enemies able to ride roughshod over our liberties and mock our faith and now hold us captive to their satanic ideologies?
To me, the answer is obvious, but very few agree with what I consider to be the obvious: God is against His people. He is judging us for our sin and apostasy, our backslidden state, our love and compromising with the world and seeking to make friends with His enemies.
I fear the Lord and do not ever want to be presumptuous in claiming He is acting a certain way when, in fact, He may be acting in the exact opposite. I write this to say that these views of mine are my opinions as I see things. But saying this, I believe I have a firm scriptural basis for believing as I do; without such a basis, who even cares what our opinions are? Only those opinions that align with our King should be given serious consideration; all others are simply not worth considering due to the brevity of our life on this planet: we can’t wast time on foolish speculations.
My scriptural basis for believing that God is against His people derives from a careful reading of Deuteronomy chapter 28. It is worth studying and meditating upon for days, weeks and even months. And if you read and mediate upon this chapter, you will never believe that America is being blessed by God but rather is in the very midst of His awful, terrifying judgment. And it is only becoming progressively worse as each day passes.
Certainly we are still enjoying the fruits of God’s blessings that has been abundantly poured down upon America for centuries. We still have plenty to eat and drink, more money than we can wisely spend, palatial and beautifully decorated and comfortable homes to live in, reliable transportation to take us wherever we want or need to go, etc. One cannot say that we are suffering like, for example, those unfortunates in Somalia.
But no rational observer can fail to see that this perpetual gravy train is coming to an end. Christians are losing freedoms at an astonishing rate. We will soon lose the freedom of free speech and even now, have to carefully watch what we say unless we “misgender” someone and face lawsuits and possible jail time. Just look at what is happening in Canada with the death of free speech and you will see where America is headed.
The bell is tolling for American Christians. Our enemies have been plotting our ruin, seeking to silence us for decades, and wish to dismantle and destroy our influence in the culture. And they have made astonishing progress and now smell “blood in the water”: their soon conquest over us is within their grasp and they are going “all in” to complete their complete subjugation of our influence in society. They will soon force us to bow before them and recognize them as our new masters and lords.
If what I am saying is only half true, can this possibly mean that “God is for us”? Can we say that God intends to bring us a “revival” to suddenly make things right and restore what we have already lost?
I think it is long past time that Christians wake up and smell the coffee. The signs of our judgment and impending doom are all around us, screaming for us to take notice.
