I heard someone ask that question recently regarding this Florida school shooting; “Where is God?”. I also saw a teen holding a sign that said “We don’t need your thoughts or prayers.”
Tonight on Dr. Phil I saw a young woman (maybe 20?) seeking a god to pray to. She could think of no one else to pray to other than Morgan Freeman because she had seen him play God in the movie “Bruce Almighty”. She didn’t know Jesus, she never saw Him, she never even HEARD of Him. THIS, sadly, is the state of our future in this country….the future of our faith.
I guess when I see someone pose the question – “Where is God?”, my only response is “right where you put Him – OUT.”
We wonder why these school shootings happen. It’s not a gun problem – it’s an anti-Christ/Jesus problem. But tell a liberal that – and they will run or ridicule and mock you. Just look at Joyce Behar’s recent comments about Vice President Mike Pence:
“It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you,” the comedian and co-host said on The View last Tuesday. “That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct. Hearing voices.”
People treat us Christians this way and then have the gall to ask us “Where is God?” when tragedy strikes. Or they simply ask “why is this happening???” with tears in their eyes, sorrow in their hearts, and confusion in their minds.
I’ve been warning people since 9/11 to turn back to God. I’ve always felt that was His warning to us as a nation. It went unheeded. The nation gave the proverbial finger to God and He threw up His hands and said “That’s the way you really want it? Here you go, have fun on your own America.”
God has removed His hand of protection from this nation. He has let us over to what we’ve been screaming for as a nation – which was everything BUT Him. The church has fallen, the nation has gone astray, and here we sit; from illness, to enemies, to wars, to division, to destruction of the family, to sexual perversions running rampant, to our young people killing others, to terrorism, etc, etc. These are known in scripture as “plagues” and demonic influences. And we asked for it – all of it.
We have kicked Him out of our schools. The government has turned its back on God. The church has turned its back on God and allowed the wolf in through the back door – seeking more to entertain the goats, than feed the sheep. The public square has turned its back on Him. Hollywood despises Him and will do anything to mislead people about Him. Our courts have turned their backs on Him. We have turned our backs on Him in our very own homes. He is rarely found in this country anymore…except among the few remaining true followers of Him. Oh sure, there are plenty who CLAIM to be Christian who will teach you of another Jesus, another God….but it’s not the right One.
It’s enough to overwhelm anyone. It makes my heart weep with sadness all the time as I watch it all.
I haven’t written a blog in some time because day after day – I watch the nation crumble and burn around us. I sit in utter amazement at the vastness, the speed, and the strength of this destruction that is happening in every corner of this country.
We have no one to blame. WE DID THIS. We have allowed ourselves to be deceived, lulled, and lured by evil things NOT of Him. NONE of us are free from this – we ALL hold some accountability.
And like ancient Rome, we too shall fall.
I think what I struggle with more than anything is all these pastors and Christians out there crying for prayer, seeking revival, seeking to still, in their OWN power, rely on MAN to fix this all this stuff. (calls for calling your government representatives, etc.)
I don’t believe that’s going to happen my friends. And I hate to sound like a fatalist but I truly believe it’s simply too late for America. I think our time of possible redemption as a nation has passed. The sins and issues within this country are far too vast, far too many, and far too powerful to stop the snowball from growing and things getting far worse.
Why do I believe this? Because I know much about the last days prophecies in scripture. These prophecies have been playing out day after day, month after month, year after year – at a crazy and feverish pace – for at least a decade now; exactly how God Himself said they would in His Holy Word.
And it’s picking up speed, moment by moment. Have you noticed what’s going on in the Middle East lately? Have you noticed what’s going on with Israel lately? Obama? Yeah, cause let me tell ya – that boy ain’t done with us yet and neither are his buddies.
I really had hoped Trump would be our saving grace; that maybe he could somehow buy a little more time for this nation, but it’s turning out that even he cannot stop the train from coming down the line.
This world is going to collide with it’s Creator sooner than later. All those who stand against Him will perish. Justice WILL be served to each accordingly. The best we Christians can do right now is make sure our lamps have oil, and strengthen ourselves greatly in Him. Satan has come and he knows his time is short. We need to hold on, because our Redeemer is coming. Question is – what will we have to endure beforehand? Only time will tell.
I know for many Christians around the world, including Europe – they are dealing with a level of persecution that is nothing but pure hatred. Pastors are being arrested in Europe as we speak merely for preaching God’s word about marriage and what He says about homosexuality.
I fear this nation is not far behind. All you have to do is look around on social media – well shoot – ANY media – to see how we faithful Christians are being portrayed: psychotic, mindless, brainwashed, stupid, radical, extremist, bigoted, haters, judgmental, undeserving, believing in fairy tales, deserving of death, sue-worthy, silence-worthy, etc. It’s not getting better.
John 15:18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you…1 John 3:13 Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you. 14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death. 15 Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.

I will be glad to lead you to some excellent resources, answer any questions, and pray with you if needed for the Lord to intervene in your heart.
I hate to leave this with such a melancholy tone. I’m not without hope – not in the least – except for those who continue to keep their backs to Him or for the fall of this once great nation. The last beacon of light on the planet is going dim quickly and it breaks my heart to watch.
I know where I’m going after this place….don’t you wanna come too?
Peace to you all, today and every day.
