2Co 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
Pastor began, as he always does, by telling us to open our Bibles. He said, "I have titled this What On Earth Is Going On? Or subtitled, What In America Is Going On? Go to Luke 21:9." He said, "I look at everything that ever happens and go to the Bible. If you don´t do that, you are wrong."
Luke 21:9 "But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by."
We are honoured to live in peace and liberty here in America. This will sound harsh, but do you think that God may have wanted to teach America a lesson? He would NOT do such a thing, but He could allow it. Is there not commotion in America today? I have only four points. #1 Prophecies continue to be fulfilled.
If you haven´t cried over what has happened, WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG WITH YOUR HEART??? If you haven´t cried, your heart is hardened and seared.
Luke 21:10 "Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise again nation, and kingdom against kingdom."
Luke 21:25-26 "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth DISTRESS OF NATIONS, WITH PERPLEXITY; the sea and the waves roaring; MEN´S HEARTS FAILING THEM FOR FEAR, and for looking after those things wich are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken."
II Timothy 3:1-5 "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection (nobody loves others as they should today), false accusers, incontinent, FIERCE, despisers of those that are good. Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."
The people who did this destruction are FIERCE. They are an unholy, heathen people.
#2 God´s Hedge of Protection has been lifted from America.
At this point Pastor stopped. He stared back at the end of the pews on right side of the sanctuary (His left side.) and said, very angrily, "Get those smirks off your faces NOW! You stinking rebels! I don´t know about you, BUT I LOVE AMERICA !!! Get out of this church now. You´re the cause of what is going on in this country! Go for a walk. You have ruined America!"
I was frozen in my seat. I have never ever heard Pastor speak like this. I never took my eyes away from him. He was right.
Jeremiah 7:6-7 "If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow and SHED NOT INNOCENT BLOOD in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt: THEN will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever."
Isaiah 5:5- "And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard; I WILL TAKE AWAY THE HEDGE THEREOF, AND IT SHALL BE EATEN UP; AND BREAK DOWN THE WALL THEREOF, AND IT SHALL BE TRODDEN DOWN; And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns; I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. "
God always gives people a place to repent. In the early 1960´s, prayer was removed from schools, Bibles were taken out. In 1963, the President was assassinated. In the 1970´s the womb was made no longer safe for unborn babies.
People have not repented. II Kings 24:4 "And also for the innocent blood that he shed: for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood; which the LORD would NOT PARDON."
During 28 years, 42,000,000 babies have been murdered.
Psalm 127:3 "Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward."
Safety is of the Lord.
Psalm 7:11 "God judgeth the righteous, and God IS ANGRY WITH THE WICKED every day."
There have been 28 years of abortions. God uses wicked, heathen people to teach lessons to those who know what they should rightly, but won´t. He used the Samaritan´s (whom the Israelites hated because they were a combination of Jewish & Assyrian´s (staunch enemies of the Israelites); and Chaldean´s (two examples).
Habukkuk 1:12-14 (background the Israelites were not being obedient and the Lord was going to teach them a lesson. When they realized who was going to take them captive
.)"Art thou not from everlasting, O LORD my God, mine Holy One? We shall not die. O LORD, thou hast ordained them for judgment; and, O mighty God, thou hast established them for correction. Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity: wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?"
Meaning: How could some heathen like Osama bin Laden attack us. After all, pridefully, we´re America. This can´t happen here!!! BUT, America has allowed MILLIONS of unborn babies to be slaughtered. American has knowledge of GOD. America is Christian, don´t you know??
BUT, God DID ALLOW A FIERCE WICKED PEOPLE to kill THOUSANDS on OUR SOIL!!!
God does remain true. He has given us a wake-up call. We can still believe:
Romans 8:31 "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?"
We have just taken God for granted.
Proverbs 1:21-33 "She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates; in the city she uttereth her words, How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? And the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD; They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil."
#3 Our nation is under delusion/illusion.
I don´t know about you, but all I heard, over and over were commentators saying "Folks, this is not a movie. This is real!" Do we not need commentators to help us separate fantasy from reality?
Daniel 9:8 "O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee."
Isaiah 66:4 "I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not."
I won´t embarrass anyone here. But, I wonder how many people here were on their knees praying last night for America? Or were you busy partying?
Read Jeremiah 51 and Revelation 18. That Babylon is America!
About 10 years ago, Larry Klayman (a missionary to Russia) was at our church and spoke at all the services. After Sunday morning, we were heading back to my home. I had ridden with him. I was looking around and I heard him crying. I asked what was wrong? He said, "Pastor, I know that today, when your members drive home, they will forget everything I said." I said, "You do? Really? Why?" Brother Larry said, "Because they will turn on their music, turn on their TV´s and forget what they learned spiritually."
#4 Be not terrified.
Matthew 24:6 "And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet."
Luke 21:28 "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."
The uppertaker is coming.
Amos 4:12 "Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel."
II Chronicles 7:14 "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
I don´t know about you, but I have had peace through this whole thing. I have no fear and neither should you. But humble yourselves
We are now all going to pray. Go pray with someone if you wish. Pray by yourself. When you are done, just get up and quietly leave.
When I woke up this morning, and I saw the continuing work at the rubble of the Twin Towers, I began to shake. My short shock had worn off. And later, I heard it announced that there HAD BEEN DAY CARE CENTERS in the Twin Towers, just like Oklahoma City.
A thought crossed my mind last night, while listening to Pastor. Much has been talked about on the subject of the murder of 5 children by a Mother. That is UNNATURAL! When it was announced that N.O.W. (I would say it is N.O.W.W. National Organization of Wicked Women.) would throw their support to the murderess and raise money for her defense. The children meant nothing to them, their protests aside.
It is time to us to repent. It is time to speak out, never failing. It is time to humble ourselves before the Lord. May a huge revival come about as a result of this heathen attack on AMERICA!
