American’s place in history

On December 21, 2012 Paramount Pictures plans on releasing a movie, “The Day the World Ends” announcing World War Z.  It will be starring Brad Pitt.  It is based on the Mayan prophecy that the world ends on that particular date.  That is if the world doesn’t end on October 21, 2011 as predicted by Harold Camping for the third time.  Mr. Camping previously stated May 21, 2011 the world would end and as we all know; he missed again.

Let me start with a disclaimer:  I am a Christian conservative who has studied the Bible for over fifty years.  My wisdom and knowledge is average with no special supernatural ability other than Holy Spirit inspired as most Christians are.  I have written two blogs a week since March 2009.  For those of us who believe in the Bible know the end will not happen on any of the days predicted.  There are just too many Scriptures that tell us otherwise.  For example:

II Thessalonians 2:3 – 5 – “Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.  He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.”

Here is what I believe happens before the world ends for your consideration:

  • America will become bankrupt so it is no longer a superpower.  It will be unable to protect the world from wars and rumors of wars.  The world is headed for a financial crisis due to entitlements and there will be rioting throughout the world as presently seen in Europe.  I have never in my lifetime seen the world in such a financial mess where people are scared of the future and unwilling to take financial risks.
  • Israel will be attacked and they will win.  Otherwise, how can they build their temple that Scripture predicts will happen?
  • Prior to the world ending, the Bible tells us there will be a one-world government and a one-world religion.  The man of lawlessness, who heads the one-world government, has not been revealed as described in Scripture nor is He in God’s temple, which as yet, as not been built.
  • A 200 million army will come from the east to destroy Israel. It is called the battle of Armageddon.   It doesn’t appear the world is ending in the near future.  Why haven’t those predicting the day the world ends have taken Scripture into consideration?

Let’s look at history. In the past 200 years it has not been possible for a one-world government.  Beginning in the 1600 we believe God’s plan was to develop a superpower nation, based on Christian principles that would stop any person or country from ruling the world.  We have had men such as Hitler, Lenin, Stalin or Mao Tse-tung who would like to have been a world leader.    They were stopped by the power of the United States and its allies as God foreknew and had planned.  As long as America has the military power and the financial ability no one is capable of establishing a one-world government.  Without the military power of the U. S., Russia, China or the Muslim world could become a one-world leader.

I have often wondered why the United States is not mentioned in Revelation during the end times.  When the end time nears no one comes to the defense of Israel as they are attacked.  Previously, the U. S. has kept Russia from intervening in their assisting surrounding nations in their attacks on Israel.  We also have promoted peace with its neighbors and have been a strong ally and a deterrent for anyone taking action against them.  This no longer seems to be the case.  Israel, as of now, is on their own and their enemies know it.

In order for God’s foreknowledge to evolve and the world to end, as we know it, America cannot stand in the way.  Aware of this, it is easy to understand the politics that are occurring in Washington, D. C. at this time.  None of us knows if this is the prelude to America’s demise, but we believe it must come sometime in the future.

Can we delay all of this from happening until later rather than sooner?

II Chronicles 7:14 – “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

This is a promise God has given to His people.  Is Satan’s grip on America so powerful that its people are unwilling to turn to God and humbling themselves and turn from their wicked ways?  Depending on the willingness of America’s people to change, they will determine the length of time until the end. Even though God is in control of all things, He implies the end is in our hands and we determine the time of the eventual outcome.

What are we leaving for future children and grandchildren?  Are Americans too selfish to sacrifice and worship God for our future and the benefit of generations that follow?
