A couple of days ago something happened to me that would have been one of those, “okay, that hurt” episodes out in the field. While clearing out in the woods a major thorny vine got a hold of me in the ear. Instead of being a little prick it kept bleeding forcing me to come in. Nurse Sue was home so she tended me and it was a little prick, not worthy of all the show all over me. While she fussed and fumed all over me that there was so much blood for such a little thing I just sat there and smiled. Eighteen years earlier she chased me around with a Tetanus shot the night before we got married so that I wouldn’t get lock-jaw on our wedding day because I’d cut my finger (maybe now she’s thinking that’s one way to get me to be quiet). Well, there’s no chasing around with a shot this time. While sitting there I hadn’t, yet, caught a view of what I looked like. When I did get a view and saw all the blood I said to Sue jokingly, ” Wow, I wonder if that’s prophetic? Well, at least I get shot in the head.”. Now I don’t look for Jesus in my French toast but a couple of things caught my attention and seriousness kicked in. It did look like a head shot and the blood covers the word “under”. Then I really did pause and ask God what He was saying to me. I mused that we had just recently watched the Van Impe end times movies and they had “O.N.E.” and now here we have O.N.G., One Nation God and that’s what this country has declared itself.
It’s been a while since I’ve entered into God’s presence really seeking His Word, not the word I want and this is what I heard:
My son, these things I declare to you, these things I make known. You have long known my mind, my will that I spoke long ago and today you have seen. It is coming and now has come, judgments have been decreed. The rebellion and stench have reached my nostrils and I turn away. This nation wants freedom and freedom it shall have, though it is slavery. That freedom will have a cost. You have shed the blood of innocents and for that blood will run. Death and destruction will overtake you, you will seek peace but none will be found. Cataclysm upon cataclysm will mount and reduce this land to rubble and the world will rejoice. No longer dependent on Me this land will have its independence.
But you, my son, take heart. I know your thoughts and though strayed return to me contrite. Be strengthened then, that it is I who protects and guides you. Those that call by my name have not yet come to the point of shedding blood, but this day comes even as a fiery chamber, yet rejoice that you will be with me. As this nation tears away the last vestiges of me from its presence, know where your home is. These things will come to pass, they will because I will it.
This isn’t the Word of blessing, feel good , story getting tossed about. We all knew that last week was a crossing over the line moment. I’m reminded of the sign at the Olympics that this country is falling. Along with the POTUS constant disregard of the US Constitution we have the SCOTUS going where they have no right to go. That was determined in “Baker vs Nelson” in 1972 where, the Warren Court of all places, it was determined the SCOTUS had no want or jurisdiction in marriage. How things change when feelings are put to the forefront. Scott at FireBreathingChristian.com wrote an interesting take about when “feelings and emotions” took over. Feelings and emotions are the god of the land, the ruling judge and make no mistake, folks, we will pay the price. Feelings and emotions will want to forcibly remove anything black and white.
This is a black day for America. There be no fireworks here, no loud noises celebrating. It is a time of mourning. It’s noteworthy that three years ago, SCOTUS had the same eerie timing. Each has been worse than the previous and the free fall is stomach turning. God has been warning of this inevitability and we have arrived. Seek Jesus while you still can, accept his invitation and ask Him to come in. The time now is short, but it beats the heck out of an eternity of pain
