Sheriff Schwiesow: A Nation in Crisis — “In the Last Days”

From: News with Views

The Apostle Paul wrote of just such a time as exists in this nation today [in the last days, grievous times will come,” Paul preceded the following with – editor], a time when the people would be lovers of themselves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, false accusers, uncontrollable, despisers of those that are good, traitors, and lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. ….

There does not exist a more apt description than this of the nature of the United States today, it is a nation that consists, collectively, of a people led away from God by divers lusts, it’s an ever-learning acculturation of those who are never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. It is in fact a nation of people who resist the truth, an irreverent fellowship of men of corrupt mind and reprobate faith. ….

The United States has crossed a great divide and is now on a dizzying slide downward through an ever-quickening succession of events, both of the cosmos and of man-made induction, which are driving this nation toward a now inevitable time of a complete and climactic destruction. Prayers from an apostate people for deliverance from catastrophic events current and future will not be heard, in the parlance of the Bible it is a time for sackcloth and ashes.*

[Now that most evangelicals have rejected Ron Paul, and now, Chuck Baldwin – editor] Those who believe that there is hope for a secular deliverance of this country from an increasingly inescapable terminal destiny at the hand of Almighty God or that the government or its leaders possess the answers to the nearly total social and spiritual unraveling of this commonwealth are barking up a wrong tree.

Paul Newman Has Left Us—Not Having Seen the Revival Come

Why is this a big deal? I explain in Rethinking Matthew 24: “…then the end will come” — after the Pete Townsends “know”? that people have a right to see real Christianity, “so they’ll know,” Jesus said in John 17.

When His people become ONE, Jesus’ prayer for us [it may just start with a small group], the world will know that God is good, holy, awesome, because the real Christians will be full of His light and goodness, having a heart of love (not preemptive war)—actually loving everyone as much as we love ourselves and loving the Lord, our God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength!

Everyone is precious, but some people touch us more than others. …

May we become ONE with each other in Christ, not just for ourselves, but so the Paul Newmans, the Pete Townsends, etc. will know….

Then our hands will be clean — and life will be awesome, no matter what!

Andrew Strom: The Depression Has Begun

From: Revival School

The DEPRESSION HAS BEGUN
-by Andrew Strom.

Ten months ago in November 2007 while preaching in Wisconsin
USA, I felt a strong unction from the Holy Spirit to speak about
the future of the United States and the imminent Crash. As often
happens under that kind of anointing, a real boldness came over
me, and for the first time I found myself clearly putting a “date”
on the coming financial Depression – something I had never done
before – except in the vaguest of terms. I found myself predicting
that tragically within six months America would be in Recession,
and within 12 months the actual Depression would begin.
(-This audio is on our website – http://www.revivalschool.com )

So let us look at the evidence. It is now ten months later. Has the
Depression begun? Sadly the answer has to be “Yes”. In the last
two weeks the two largest mortgage giants in the world (Fannie
Mae & Freddie Mac) failed, the largest Insurance Company on earth
crashed (all taken over by the US Government), Lehman Brothers
went bankrupt (almost taking the entire financial system with it),
Money Markets reeled, the two remaining giant Investment banks
sought protection as “holding banks” – which means the end of
Wall Street as we know it, etc, etc. Stocks are in turmoil, Oil leapt
on Monday by the most ever recorded, gold is volatile – and on it
goes. -The most shattering two weeks since the Great Depression.
Meanwhile the US Treasury is seeking 700 billion dollars in a
forlorn effort to put Humpty back together again – tragically too late.

THERE ARE “JONAHS” on THE BOAT

Why is this storm hitting America at this time? There are certainly
many reasons – most of which we have discussed before. But let
me put something else before you that I believe God spoke to me
not long ago:- There are “Jonahs” on the boat – and they are
sending the nation down.

Who are these Jonahs? I believe they are the “prophets” of America
who will not preach the truth – who sleep comfortably in the bowels
of the nation while chaos reigns all around them. Too afraid to
deliver God’s word ‘Repent’, they run the other way – toward smooth
talk and pleasant sayings – “Peace peace” when there is no peace.
And the depths of this great crisis can be laid directly at their door.

Yes – that’s right. A big reason why the ship of America is sinking
is because her prophets ran away from their God-given task and
message at the crucial moment.

If only these prophets had preached the TRUTH when the nation
so desperately needed to hear it. If only they had begun – way
back in the 1980’s – to call the lukewarm church to repentance,
to rebuke the people for their love of money, their greed, their sin.
But no – the siren call of “popularity” was too strong. The call of
“grace, grace”, of mass acceptance, of big reputations and even
bigger offerings. And so they sold out. And now they sleep bliss-
fully in the midst of the ship, while the storm whips to fury all
around. How do you sleep, O Jonahs, who would not cry “Repent”?

And it is not just the “prophets” either. It is the televangelists too.
Caught up in a world of fakery, hype and money-grubbing unseen
in the church since the Dark Ages, these hucksters are spreading
their garbage to every Third World Revival nation around the globe.
Greed, manipulation and pride on a scale that only America could
generate. Where is your shame, O charlatans of greed?

And so God is forced to act. And just like Jonah, the storm will
not abate until the wayward preachers are thrown overboard. Until
America is rid of these international thieves and prostitutes, she
is finished. And she will not recover until they are gone.

You see, it is not just the leaders who are at fault here. It is also
the people, who “love to have it so”. And thus until the heart of the
people is scourged and purged they will accomodate the “Jonahs” –
even seeking more of their ear-tickling fables to comfort themselves
in this time of breaking.

Until the heart of American greed is shattered – until her people
act of their own volition to throw these Jonahs overboard – this
storm will go on and on. In fact, it is about to grow a whole lot worse.

Mark my words, America: Until you remove these Jonahs, your
nation cannot recover. They have held the whole world in thrall by
their apostasy. And God cannot have it so any more. How long will
it take you to realize? How long will it take you to act?

THROW THE JONAHS OVERBOARD and be done with them!!
Only then will this mother of all storms subside.

Voting for the ‘Lesser of Evils,’ Thinking We’re Going to Heaven

Therefore, “‘Come out from among them, and be separate,’ says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing. I will receive you. …'”
(2 Cor. 6:17)

To stand on that day —
this isn’t child’s play.

We can vote and stand before God one day,
and not have to stand before God and say:

‘Well, God, I voted for the lesser of two evils.’

And God’s going to look you in the face, folks, and say:
‘But you still voted for evil.’

And you’ll have to admit that you did.

And God doesn’t put up with that, folks—
you voting for the lesser of two evils.

It’s still absolute evil,
Satanic evil

[WordPOWER!] 2 Timothy 3: In the Last Days, PERILOUS Times Will Come — But “We Will OVERCOME!”*

* Note: when I write something that I believe I’m hearing from God, I’m trying to consistently put parenthesis around it. So if parenthesis pop up as if out of the blue in something I write somewhere on either of these blogs, this is probably why. And in most cases, I won’t explain why.

Often, when this happens, what I hear is much stronger and/or more direct, or even far different from what I would have said on my own.

And this isn’t super-freaky. This should happen to many of us. This is normal. These are just words I subtly hear that I know I’m not making up, and they make sense—which should always be the case if we’re not walking in willful sin, giving the demons a place.

Often, these phrases are conditional. Here, I would assume that those of us who ‘overcome’ (in the title, above) must be part of the ‘we’ — willing to walk in love, together — doing whatever it takes. ONE in Him, “life eternal”!!!

Freedom!

2 Timothy 3

1 But know this, that in the last days, grievous [‘perilous’ – KJV] times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 without natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; 5 holding a form of godliness, but having denied its power.

10 But you did follow my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, steadfastness, 11 persecutions, and sufferings: those things that happened to me at Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra. I endured those persecutions. Out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

14 But you remain in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them. 15 From infancy, you have known the holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith, which is in Christ Jesus. 16 Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
