Believe it or not, we are living in the most dangerous time in human history – where world troubles are soon to erupt on scales that had never before happened in all of human history; this will be the time where Jesus said, “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved …” (Matthew 24:21,22).

Terrible times are just ahead of us, and the things happening in the world – such as the enmity or hostility between nations, and especially with the adversarial relationship that Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran has toward the United States, - along with the Middle East conflict – all greatly figures in bringing about the escalation of world troubles – that will be to the detriment of the United States.

Do You Think God Would Fail to Mention the United States?

God our creator has not failed to mention nations and cities – such as Babylon, the Grecian empire, the Persian Empire, the Roman empire – including cities like Ashkelon, Sodom and Gomorrah; even Russia and China are mentioned in prophecy; why then would God fail to make mention of the single greatest nation – The United States of America?

The truth is that God has not at all failed to mention the United States; this nation is in prophecy, and God has foretold those things to befall our people – who are in fact the descendants of the ancient people of Israel. Time and space here would certainly not allow me to write at length detailing this truth about America, but I have provided a website information at the very end of this article - so that anyone interested in understanding where America is spoken of in prophecy, can go there to learn more.

We Are Afraid to Use our Military Power

America has truly been a great nation; we used our military strength and power to help our Allies win World War II, and we developed and dropped the nuclear bombs on Japan – leading to the surrender of Japan. But if you think back that after World War II, America has not been successful in winning wars as we did before; we did not win the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and other ambiguous outcome with Iraq and Afghanistan – of which both the Vietnam and Afghan war represents a shameful pull out that reflects a weakness and reluctance on the part of America to stay the course in military conflicts; and our adversaries, Russia and China are seizing upon this unwillingness on the part of the United States. Most commentators and analysts are likely to conclude that Russia attacked Ukraine because of our shameful withdrawal from Afghanistan; by this, we are letting our adversaries know that we neither have the backbone nor the will to stand up to aggressor nations. President Ronald Reagan said: “… every lesson in history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well - meaning liberal friends refuse to face – that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight and surrender …”

Men should surely strive to avoid war at all costs, but the nation that shows weakness in the eyes of its adversaries is sending a dangerous message or signal that will result in more harm than good; and yet, it seems that our leaders in Washington have NOT understood this simple truth.

The nation has seemingly become more and more appeasing to those who people or country that hates the United States; we all have seen how the United States have continued to appease China – by sending our ambassadors over and over again – making all kinds of weak appeasing gestures to the administration of that country – while blinding our eyes to the fact that China hates the United States.

Our leaders continue to talk and talk about having China as a partner – while failing to see that China’s intent is to bring us down. China has become so bold that they sent a spy balloon into the United States to spy on us, and instead of apologizing for what they did, they were angry that the United States shot down the balloon; what does that tell you about the nature and intent of the Chines Government? And Russia is also dancing to the same beat as China, as they have been emboldened to bring down America’s drone out of the sky – causing it to crash in the Black Sea; The Russian Ambassador to the USA blamed the USA saying they viewed this incident as a provocation; Russia blamed the United States.

We also know that Iran has been attempting to acquire nuclear weapons and is the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the Middle East. The United States had sanctions in place that prevented Iran from selling oil so it would be deprived of the financial means to fund and sponsor terrorism on levels that it is now able to do, but the foolish United States has lifted those sanctions, and in addition, have rewarded Iran with $6 billion. Is this not foolish to reward an adversary who not only hates the United States but is also bent on destroying us; they even have their proxies in Iraq and Syria firing missiles at American bases in that region over and over again. Just ask yourself, it is this not an act of war for other people to be firing at the armies of another country; why would a nation as the United Sates – having the greatest military and weaponry allow this to happen? Why do we lack the willingness to deter this kind of action?

God has longed prophesied of this weakness on the part of the United States; In Leviticus 26:19, God says, “And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass.”

Few may understand that this passage of the bible contains a dual prophecy – meaning a prophecy that fits with the people of Moses’ day, but its final fulfillment is for our time; God speaks of great nations – the United States and Britain – who have been the great powers on this earth; America had been the super power nation – the greatest single nation and the people took pride in its unique national blessings and military greatness, but God said HE would break the pride we have in that power. The word POWER come from a Hebrew word which means, might, force or that which gives us a sense of security; this is speaking of or involve our military power. This means we would feel so pridefully assured that our great military capability and power would be there to protect us, but now God has been breaking our pride in that military power to the extent that we do have a mighty military, but we do NOT have the will to engage that military in fighting and winning wars; we would, instead, become and appeaser nation – trying to talk down our adversaries – while they aggressively feed upon our weakness – by insulting and threatening us; and this is the state of affairs in the United States.

On the other hand, the Bible reveals that Judah – the people we call Israel – in the Middle East, would be strong in dealing with their enemies; Genesis 49:9 says, “Judah is a lion’s whelp; … he couched as a lion, and as an old lion …” A lion is the king of beast and can be a terror to others and is resolute as it attacks its prey; this is somewhat symbolic of the military of Israel -who has responded to the Hamas Terrorist attack upon its soil. Of course, all people should be able to live in peace with one another, but humanity does not know the way to peace; the bible says, “The way of peace they know not …” (Isaiah 59:8). This is why Jesus Christ is coming as the new world ruler to show mankind the way to peace and to save us from ourselves.

The resolve of Israel and its willingness to win is quite different than the United States or its leadership which seem to be on this seemingly never -ending course of appeasement. I can tell you whatever response or action the United States takes in the Middle East, the end result is NOT going to be good for this nation; and it is all because we have forgotten God and is a nation filled with immorality.

In his continuing statement on appeasement, Mr. Reagan went to say: “… and someday when the time comes to deliver the final ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary, because by that time, we will have been weakened from within, spiritually, morally, and economically …’ These words of Mr. Reagan seem prophetic – because we have been on this course of spiritual and moral decline. The future for America is bleak and it may already be too late to change the course of this nation; the writing is already on the wall - for just as God, through the prophet Daniel, told the King of Babylon that God had numbered the kingdom and finished it, even so is the United States numbered; we are going down – down, because we have rejected God!

I would urge the reader to watch the events unfolding in the Middle East and America’s response to all that is going on – as this crisis will never allow the world to be the same anymore. The Good news is that all this is leading up to the greatest event to take place in the Universe – the second coming of Christ. Christ did say, “And what I say unto you, I say unto all, Watch” (Mark 13:37).

I am an old man who has long realized that professing Christianity - with all it Mega-Churches and various denominations do not at all proclaim the true teachings of the Bible; and so, I write these articles for those with an open mind, who, may possibly, be willing to see the truth.
