THE FUTURE OF AMERICA MAY FAIL BECAUSE WE ARE BEING DECEIVED

Until we came to Nevada we were registered Independents and could vote for any party in the primaries. Being active in a Las Vegas Chamber committee and Rotary, our vote went mostly to people we knew, regardless of party. Two presidents, Reagan and Bill Clinton, both were in favor of legal immigration and were free traders and America did well economically. Under both Democrats and Republicans, we since have enacted massive regulations. We have adopted ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank, Sarbanes-Oxley, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, expanded the National Labor Relations Board, EPA’s extensive limitations without regard to cost and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. We have seen our country go from capitalism toward socialism where the government wants to determine the minimum wage and control how much we pay CEOs.

In addition, our taxes have increased and our government has got us deeply in debt. The Federal Reserve has printed money out of air and has kept interest rates at zero percent for years. If the interest rates were to increase exponentially, we would be paying hundreds of billions on our national debt.

Our country has moved toward denying there is a God and our decreasing morality has development a number of dishonest people. We use to live by the Golden Rule of doing to others as you would have them do to you. There was a time when many of us remember when a hand shake or our word could be trusted. Today, unless it is in writing, approved by a lawyer and notarized, the word of many business people, politicians and others are meaningless.

If our government was concerned about a growing economy and jobs, it would allow that expansions of producing shale oil and gas and end the war on coal use. It would allow the building of pipe lines and allow the exporting of natural gas and oil. They would open up public land to drilling and create millions of jobs and the result would be enough taxes to pay our bills without borrowing. With added jobs, a growing economy, fewer taxes on businesses and individuals, there would be fewer companies going overseas to expand.

The Bible very clearly tells us what will happen in times like we are living in. II Thessalonians 2:9 – 12 – “This man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them. So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth.”

Have you ever wondered how this man, the Antichrist, could become so powerful and attain such notoriety and loyalty from the masses? He is a tool of Satan and will be given all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders in order to deceive all. His power and his miracles will deceive and cause unbelievers to perish who refused to love the truth or gospel message and be saved. Those who chose to follow the Antichrist, God will send a powerful delusion so that they will believe his lies and thus be condemned for not accepting Christ as their Savior. God uses Satan as part of His judgment and rebelling.

We have seen President Obama and Donald Trump give us a glimpse of what a person will be able to do to get the world to believe that a person can deceive the masses. I am not saying that either is being used by Satan only that saying the right words can convince many that they can give us what we need. That could be security from terrorism, a growing economy, jobs and every need we have.

The purpose of this writing is to alert us to what could soon happen in the very near future when we will be able to recognize who the Antichrist is but deny he exists. He will make a seven-year peace agreement between Israel and Palestine. The Jews will rebuild their temple and peace will exist for 3½ years and then things will get worse. The only reason this will occur is because the masses, worldwide, will allow ourselves to be deceived.

We Americans have the greatest economic potential that we have ever had. However, we have allowed our politicians and our judicial system to deny God and live as if God was not needed or even exists. It is my belief that we Christians have allowed this to happen because we have remained silent. It is time we got back to accepting the constitution and living as our founding fathers planned. This will never happen until Christians and others repent and get back to worshiping God. Can we count on you?
