I Read the Last Chapter

Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.

Matthew 24:12-13

Friends, I am not a political person.  But what is happening in this country and the world goes beyond politics.  We have a government that fails to call terrorism, by its name.  We have a president who does not seem to like this country.  In fact, his sympathies appear to lie elsewhere.  The values of this world have been turned upside down.  What God has ordained as pure and good, the world has called evil and politically incorrect.  What God has called sin, the world today applauds and embraces.  Friends, this nation has become an asylum and the inmates are in charge.  God foresaw this happening in the Old Testament book of Isaiah.  In Isaiah 5:20 we read,”Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who puts bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

There is global terrorism and illegal immigration that is condoned by our government.  Radical Muslims threaten to overtake the world for Allah.  IF you can find a reliable news source, you can see the acts of barbarism and violence that are committed in the name of Allah.  Christians are beheaded, women and children are raped and sold into slavery by this “peaceful religion”.  The president has allegedly said, “The Muslim call to prayer is the sweetest sound on Earth.” and “The future does not belong to those who offend the prophet of Islam.”  Whether or not he actually said this is not as important as his actions.  He defends these radicals and does not condemn their terroristic attacks.  He does, however,. blame the Christians.  At a recent prayer breakfast at the White House, he minimized the barbaric acts and said that during the Crusades, many were killed in the name of Christ.”  What he did not say  was the Crusades were fought to stop the Jihadists from taking over the world for Allah even then.*

We are not only fighting these radical Jihadists, we are fighting to keep our basic rights guaranteed by our Constitution.  The Second Amendment which allows citizens to bear and keep arms is being attacked by the government and other liberal groups.  Our First Amendment right, our right for free speech is being assaulted on every side.  The new rule of the land is political correctness .  We are told we must not say anything that offends blacks, Muslims or the LGBT population. Yet it is considered admirable to attack Christians and call them  a radical hate group because we believe in the Bible and the Constitution. We  are willing to stand for what is right and speak against what is wrong.  Christian businesses are being forced to close and the owners sued and fined because they will not compromise their beliefs to those groups that are intent on destruction of Christian and American  values.  We are told we must “be tolerant” of others’ beliefs but we are being denied the same tolerance and respect. God has been taken from our public schools and replaced by Allah.  Our children are taught the tenets of Islam but are forbade to bow and pray to the one and true God.

More babies are being killed by abortion because society does not respect the sanctity of life.  According to society, a woman’s body is her own and it is her right to kill the “inconvenience” of a new life.  The boundaries have been expanded for abortions until the ninth month.  I have conducted a very thorough and extensive research on the abortion issue and have found that “100% of those in favor of abortion have already been born.”  Not only is abortion on the increase but child abuse and neglect are on the rise. Parents torturing and killing their own children.  Child predators and pedophiles are kidnapping, raping, and murdering our children.  Many of these pedophiles are in this country illegally.  Yet nothing is done to stop this atrocious behavior.  Our government has turned its back on these defenseless victims and has hailed  the amnesty of these illegals as wonderful for this country.  Again Jesus has spoken to these evil-doers and rebuked his disciples for  stopping the children from coming to Him.  In Matthew 19:14 we read, Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.”

Christianity is also being attacked in our military.  Chaplains are being fired and prosecuted if they teach the word of God.  Our government is trying to take the Bible out of the hands of our brave men and women who are fighting four this country.  Recently, a two star Air Force General is being threatened with court martial because he dared to thank God at a prayer breakfast.  You read that right—a prayer breakfast!  Not only is our military being disrespected but people who are enjoying the benefits and rights of this great country are trampling and burning our flag—the symbol of our freedoms in this country.

The day is coming when this world will stand in judgment.  The wheat will be separated from the chaff and all who did not accept God’s free gift of salvation will be permanently removed and separated from God.  Satan loves silence and we Christians must be silent no more. We must be faithful and look to God for He is coming.  We are commanded to spread the gospel and tell others about His great love.  We must let the world know that He is coming and on that great Day every knee will bow to the one and only God.  Revelation 3:10 tells us “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.”

Yes, friends, I read the last chapter and we won!

Jesus said, “If anyone acknowledges me, in front of men, I will acknowledge him in front of my Father.  If anyone denies me in front of men, I will deny him in front in my Father.”

*The Crusades occurred in 1076 when the Muslims captured Jerusalem, the Holy City of Christianity.  Jesus was born in Bethlehem which is near Jerusalem and was crucified on Calvary Hill also in Jerusalem.  Muslims claimed the city because that is where Mohammed, the “founder” of Islam had also been there.  This information was obtained from the History Learning Site  found on the internet.
