I previously wrote a blog why the United States was not mentioned in Revelation. It started out by saying: A number of times I have been asked why America does not appear in the Book of Revelation. There doesn’t appear to be any nation coming to the Jews rescue. However, some believe the U.S. will not have the will or the ability to assist Israel in its defense.

I spend much time reading or listening to financial news. I am normally optimistic and generally listen to those who are positive vs. those who preach gloom and doom. We elect leaders who promise that they will bring positive change and a growing economy. In most part, we believe that no matter which party is in power there will always be opportunity. But here is what tells me the chances of the United States having a role in the end-times I believe lessens almost every time I read the news. I base my information on the following:

We are losing the backing of our friendly nations. Japan can no longer depend on America for military defense and are arming themselves for the first time since World War II. German’s Chancellor Merkel tossed out of Germany our top CIA official because we were tapping her cell phone. Foreign leaders do not trust us any longer.

The Middle East is in total chaos with Israel and Hamas fighting. Look what we have done to Iraq by not leaving a contingency of military to support the government. We plan to leave Afghanistan in the same situation.

Russia was allowed to annex Crimea and Ukraine is possibly next. What is America doing about the plane being shot down and 298 people being killed? What are we doing about Syria or Iran and the nuclear bomb?

Our economy is barely growing. We are tremendously in debt. Many are out of jobs and personal wages are not rising. The wealthy are getting richer because of the stock markets growth. Those less fortunate depend on the government to support them.

Inflation statistics no longer treat food, gas and electricity as a very large percent of the inflation statistic which tremendously affects many families’ budgets. Inflation affecting the average family is higher than reported.

We have an open border with thousands of immigrants entering. Who knows how many terrorists are entering? Many believe the IRS purposely destroyed e-mails and computers that showed a bias to conservative groups. Can we trust our government? We were told a video caused four to be killed in Benghazi.

We have freed five high ranking jihadists for a captured American accused of deserting his unit.

We passed ObamaCare with so many regulations it is doubtful a number of doctors will treat Medicare and Medicaid patients. It is estimated all of the regulations placed on professionals and businesses exceed one trillion dollars annually to comply.

As a Navy veteran, on shipboard patrolling during wartime, I am saddened to see our country becoming no longer viable in keeping peace in a very disturbed world. We live in a country with the greatest potential of all times. What we have discovered, through technology and fracking, we could be the most prosperous nation ever, if we were allowed to develop our natural gas and oil resources.

Who do I blame for where we find ourselves—Lucifer or the devil?

Exodus 9:12 – “But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart and he would not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the Lord had said to Moses.” If we are in the end-times could God be hardening the hearts of politicians in preparation for the end?

II Thessalonians 2:9 – 12 – “The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”

It has always amazed me throughout history and today how many people Satan has been able to deceive. I believe America could be the world’s answer to peace, individual freedom and longevity. Are we on the right path for that to happen? If you believe socialism is the answer, entitlements and big government similar to what we see in Europe is what we want; then we will play a part in the final one-world government. But remember, there will be one dictator who will remove all personal rights and freedoms. You then must have a mark in order to buy or sell. Everyone will be treated equally if you accept his rules and accept the religion that He will require.

What economic system would you choose for America? For myself, I prefer what we have had for the past 230 plus years but, some day there will be an end to the U.S. How soon will that be? Your choice could make a difference!

God will not need any nation in the end times to do what He plans to do. I believe this is why America is not found in the Book of Revelation. I do not think the end of time is just around the corner but I believe it is getting much closer. I do not believe the U.S. is going into bankruptcy under normal circumstances. I believe these past few months, June 2014, have been an excellent time to invest. I believe the American people will demand that our government take the necessary steps to get people back to work and our economy continuing to grow. I don’t believe God is pleased with us but I still feel there is a chance for a spiritual revival in America. All it takes is prayer!
