God’s Judgment On False Prophets

Jesus said …..He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:18)

I heard a prophet on a Christian television program say that some preachers are going to start dropping dead behind their pulpits.

If a preacher says God will make us prosper if we send them money, I do not believe it. However, if they say God is going to kill you if you don’t repent, then I believe it. Why? Because He did it all the time in the Bible.

God does not love anyone more than he loved Ananias and Sapphira. Yet he struck them dead. Peter rebuked them before all.

He did not offer them counselling. He did not offer them a chance. He did not instruct them to go recite one-hundred Hail Mary’s. He did not tell them “I understand. No one is perfect.” He offered no altar to kneel and repent at. No covering it up. Peter did not even forgive them himself. He said for lying to the Holy Ghost you must die.

Next scene: two corpses lying at Peter’s feet. One died, then the other. Their dead bodies carried out, and buried, and the church rolled on.

We can just imagine how filled with fear all the church was after seeing these two now alive, now dead. Struck dead before them all. It would appear that those of Peter’s congregation did not try the same thing Ananias and Sapphira tried.

Back to the pulpit deaths…of course we know a pulpit means more than the standard ones we see in churches. Any preacher out there who is preaching a false gospel is in danger of being among those who drop dead under the judgment of God.

You know that God hasn’t changed one iota about how he sees sin. He still hates it and it will still be punished. Nothing has changed.

Why do some ministers who stand behind a pulpit preaching not live as God commands them to live? Simple answer: they don’t want to. How do we know this is true? Because God is good, and he is just, and he is merciful. He will never, ever, ever command us to do what we cannot do THROUGH Christ.

It is possible to live for Jesus.

And Paul the apostle said we can do all things through Christ. If God told you to do it, then you can do it through him who loved us and bought us with his blood. Someone said God will not bring you to it, if he does not bring you through it.

God commands all men everywhere to repent. But man tells God go away. Not today God I’m busy having fun. I am satisfying my flesh so take a hike. Go away  God go away.

Jesus already said that few will find the way to eternal life. Many will go to hell. Horrible! Oh God does it have to be that many will be lost forever suffering the eternal flames of hell?

Some say there is no hell.

Do they really think the suffering we see today in the world is not allowed by God? God is Sovereign. He is either doing his will, or permitting what is not his will. How he does this is not to be understood. He warns the world repent repent repent or perish.

But as sinners from times of old the world tells God GO AWAY.

However God cannot go away. He is omnipresent and fills all in all.

When one sees the suffering in the world today, it is difficult to bear it. But it is God who allows it. If one does not obey he suffers.

Better to repent today then find out later that to die without Christ is to go to that place where the worm dies not and the fire is not quenched. Jesus said that not me.

God Against Public Nudity

Prophet Ezekiel, Russian icon from first quart...

Image via Wikipedia

The Hebrew prophet Isaiah “walked naked and barefoot for three years as a sign … against Egypt and Cush.” The Lord Himself directly commanded Isaiah to do this to represent the utter shame these people would experience.

Nakedness was used here as warning of judgment.

I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. (Revelation of Jesus Christ 3:18

Here God makes it clear that we need to be covered. Dare anyone say that the Lord approves that these people he addressed here go naked? The fall in Eden caused God to make them clothes to wear..

Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine. (Ezekiel 16:8)

Here God covered nakedness. He did this in Eden after they sinned against him. He made covering for them. Dare anyone say that the Lord in this passage approves of women exposing their bodies thus tempting men to sin?Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? (Isaiah 58:7)

God here tells Israel to care for others which would include making sure they have clothes to wear.

And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness. And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. (Genesis 9:22-27)

A curse is placed upon Canaan the son of Ham for looking at his father’s nakedness.

And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment; (Ezekiel 18:7)

God here pronounces blessings on those who cover the naked.

 Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate. Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers. Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.(Isaiah 47:1-3)

I understand this last verse to be God warning women to cover themselves or he will come to them, BUT not as a man will he come. He will come with judgment on her refusal to cover herself. He tells them to go ahead and expose themselves but when he comes to them it will be to punish. God equates nakedness with shame. Once the nakedness is uncovered then her shame shall be seen.

God and Prophecy

Jesus with children, early 1900s Bible illustr...

Prophecy. What is it? It is the word of God. It cannot will not fail.

In ancient times the Hebrew prophets were men who never got it wrong. They preached to their generation for the people to repent. To turn to God in humility and deep sorrow for their sins. Never did they teach that if one does what God says he will immediately begin to acquire riches and wealth.They saw what the problem was.  These is why they were called seers. They had 20/20 spiritual vision.

They saw what was there.  They saw what people needed to do and why; Repent. They told the people exactly what was coming if they did not repent. They did not study trends and somehow were able to figure out what would happen next if the people did not repent. God told them exactly what he would do to the sinners if they did not repent. It happened as the prophets said to the jot and tittle. Many of their prophecies are still coming to pass. And will still in the future come to pass.

But also within their preaching were prophecies of the coming Messiah.

But there are many false prophets that preach today money and wealth instead of repentance. Give to them and God will give to you.

Consider this: There are rich people out there who give nothing to God and his kingdom. So what does this say? It says that one does not have to give to God to be rich and prosperous. These false prophets are basically saying to us that Hollywood Celebrity can be rich without giving to God. But Christian must give to God to acquire the same things Hollywood Celebrity did without giving to God.

The world is rich and prosperous and it has nothing to do with serving God.

And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. (Luke 12:15)

Nor did the prophets go around telling people what they wanted to hear. Their message was always about repentance and returning to God. Their preaching was leading to the appearance of Messiah. Prophets will always preach and teach what will bring you to God. If you obey it will bring you to his salvation. If you do not obey it will bring you to his judgment.

You will not pass go and you will not collect $200.

Prophets knew that the only way for the people’s lives to improve was for the people to do exactly what God said. Do what God says and you will be happy. Don’t do what God says and you will suffer judgment. This was the prophet’s message. Do or die. No in-between clauses were found in their messages. It was simple. Return to God or be destroyed.

That is simple to understand. It was like in ancient times when Israel was traveling God told them when the cloud moves you move. When it stands still you stand still. God made it so simple a child could understand. He has not changed.

But today there are prophets out there who tell the people exactly what they want to hear. Nothing but good will come to you if you give to their ministry. Granted God always honors anything done for him. But woe to the ministries that are giving to Caesar what belongs to God.

It is important to know the difference.

There is the law of probability. There is always a chance of a so-called prophesy coming to pass. A prophet says that tomorrow you will get a visit from a person who will write you out a check for the amount you need to meet your bills. If God did not say that there is still a chance of that happening. How?

Well the one who made the prophecy can bring it to pass themselves. They can call a friend and tell them to do exactly what the prophecy prophesied. They can say to their friend..go to this person I prophesied to and write them a check. Or I will be seen as a false prophet.

Prophets can go to a government leader and prophesy; Thus says the Lord..You will be re-elected. There is a fifty-fifty chance of that prophesy coming to pass. This prophecy is still not from God even if the  prophet told the exact number of votes the leader will get. It is not a prophecy from God if the prophet does not tell the wicked person to repent of their sins and to follow Jesus. Not follow God whoever you imagine her/him to be as the new age gurus teach. But as the scriptures say follow Jesus.

Many false prophets are gone out into the world to deceive those who do not know ONE thing; the Holy Scriptures. If one does not know the Holy Scriptures he is a sitting duck for the devil to deceive.

And what do the false prophets damage besides their own reputations? Others faith in what is true. If a prophet says that a prophecy can be obtained from God if you leave an offering that should set off a loud alarm that the prophet is false.

Jesus said many MANY false prophets will arise and deceive many. But according to the false prophets there are no false prophets..anyway not them. But what Jesus said is true when he told of to beware of false prophets.

If a prophet does not warn you of coming judgment IF you do not repent of your sins…you can be sure he is false.

Westboro Baptist Church and Its Hellfire Message

Westboro Baptist Church member Benjamin Phelps...

Image via Wikipedia

I have read a few unfavorable descriptions of the Reverend Fred Phelps of Westboro Baptist Church. He and his congregation are out there today holding almost nothing back as they cry out, and spare not against the sin and evil that is destroying this nation and the world.

[The sins one commits destroy themselves. God made us in his image but when we disobeyed in Eden we installed a self-destruct button into our existence that is getting pressed every day. But God is not going to hold Christians responsible for what this nation is doing.]

Their message is America Is Doomed.

When the atheist-comedian George Carlin died Reverend Phelps made a video and put it on You Tube saying plainly George Carlin the potty mouth is in hell.  The God he mocked is now mocking him.

He recently said that Lady Gaga is a bad influence on any who listen to her. His daughter said that Elizabeth Taylor is now in hell alongside Michael Jackson. He understands that whoever does not profess Christ with a life to back it up is going to hell.

He is against what is against God. How he delivers it is simply his method and style. He is no Joel Osteen who smiles and tells you exactly what you want to hear.

They who cry out and preach against sin will never be loved or wanted. On the contrary they are hated and not appreciated by those who want to sin and call it freedom.

Phelps says God laughs as he sees the sinners fall into hell. His picketing of soldiers funerals with offensive signs that read Thank God For Dead Soldiers.

Reverend Phelps sees the war as sin and the dead soldiers as God’s judgment on America for sending them to war. His absolute stand against homosexuality with his God Hates Fags signs is right out of the Old and New Testaments. He sees homosexuality as the Bible says it is; an abomination. It is disgusting to God. And his hatred of abortion (murdering babies) and fornication (sex before marriage)  and divorce (usually caused by adultery) is all Biblical also. He sees the destruction of the home God established on earth as being destroyed because of the willingness of this nation to let it happen.

That not only does this nation allow all this evil; it makes it legal. This nation protects the sinner to sin all he wants while warning the Christians to back off or face lawsuits. Sin is called right and God and his children are called wrong.

And it is true according to the Bible that God does hate some things though God loves the human race.  And there are  people God hates and there is Bible to prove this. God is not always pasting big happy faces on people.  Sometimes he puts big sad faces with eyes drenched in tears. He loved Jacob and hated Esau. God said his hand wounds as well as heal.

One preacher said that God saves with his arm, heals with his hand, and casts out devils with his finger. But he is also a God of judgment. He definitely  sends judgment on people for their sins. It is called justice. God always more than evens the score.

These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. (Proverbs 6:16-19)

Many may not want to see it or believe it but the Bible does say that God hates certain things. IE: if you lie God hates your tongue.  It is there as plain as ever. He hates false witnesses and troublemakers. Tale-bearing has even caused innocent people to be murdered. God hates a lying, gossiping, trouble-making, slandering backbiter.

If you shed innocent blood God hates you. No one can take Proverbs 6 and say it is not what God said. It is what he said. He hates certain things and certain people. Does anyone actually think that God loves people who sin? If you do then you misunderstand the message of the Bible. Adam (all of us) sinned and died for it. If we sin we die.  We are dead while we live. God is a God of the living and not of the dead. Sin kills and Jesus is life not death.

But she that lives in pleasure is dead while she lives. (1 Timothy 5:6) and don’t think that just means widows. It means anyone who lives in pleasure is dead while they live. Does God love dead things? I think not.

Christ is LIFE. How could LIFE love dead people? There is no death in God neither is there darkness.

God is not a big fluffy cuddly teddy bear up in the sky who just wants us to do whatever we want. God didn’t make us to wild party and die. But to love him and obey him. And live forever with him in paradise.

For our God is a consuming fire. (Hebrews 12:29)

And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commands all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30)

God is a consuming fire who at one time winked at man’s ignorance but now commands all men everywhere to repent. Dismiss immediately those images of a wimpy bony weak sickly looking Jesus depicted in paintings by artists who saw him as they saw themselves perhaps.

And whoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.(Revelation of Jesus Christ 20:15) [notice the word cast here? No one will willingly go to the lake of fire. They will be cast in against their will]

He is a great and terrible God out of whose mouth comes fire.  But in his love he sent His Son to die for us so we will not be cast into hell by his angels someday for doing what he hates; sin.

7Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth. 8There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.9He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet. 10And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. 11He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. 12At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire. 13The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire. 14Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. 15Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils. (Psalm 18)

He loves you, but your tongue is a an object of his hate if you tell lies. Why? because he commanded man not to lie so any tongue that lies cannot be an object of his love. Same goes for the other things he hates.

Reverend Phelps is a fire and brimstone preacher of the first rank. He takes the Bible literally when he speaks of God laughing and mocking at the sinner as he falls into eternal darkness and hell for rejecting the Son of God.

(Proverbs 1:26) I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

These passages are about God’s response to anyone who casts aside his counsel and love.

With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself unsavory. (2 Samuel 22:27)

Reverend Phelps doesn’t see the war as from God but believes what James the apostle said here in his letter.

From where come wars and fightings among you ? come they not from this, even from your lusts that war in your members? (James 4:1)

And said, O full of all subtlety and all mischief, you child of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? (Acts 13:10) [The Apostle Paul said these words to a sinner.]

Jesus said to those who rejected his love and teachings that they were going to a place where the worm dies not and the fire is not quenched.

They have translated the Bible out of the original Hebrew and Greek.  And after two- thousand years of the Greek translation with revisions of the New Testament it still says there is a red-hot hell that God prepared for the devil and his angels.

Like John Hagee preaches, “You say you don’t believe in hell? Matters not you’re still going there.”

“But God is love.” they say, “He wants us to have fun all the time.” God isn’t condemning us he understands. But what does God really say?

The soul that sins, it shall die. (Ezekiel 18:20) It cannot be any clearer than that. No names mentioned here, but it is very personal...the soul that sins shall die. End of story. And there is hope only in Christ.

I have heard those who cannot see love as anything unless it involves  their own will and desires. It is never about what God wants; it is about what they want. “This is what I think” is the common statement from those who cannot see anything as valid unless they are the ones who thought it up. Truth to them is what they think. What God says brings this response,  “There must have been mistakes in the translations. God cannot send anyone to hell.”

“God wants us happy”  yet are clueless as to what God says happiness is. Happiness can only be found in the will of God.  Many counterfeits out there that masquerade as love. God alone is love. It is in him that our peace and happiness is. It is in obedience to his words that we can get to heaven.

Someone said that hell is the wrath of God against sin. So when Jesus paid the debt for our sins whoever rejects that offer will suffer the wrath of God which wrath is expressed in the eternal hell.

You serpents, you generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell? (Matthew 23:33) Jesus said this.

Reverend Phelps knows that God is for peace, that God is for all nations to repent and come to him. He knows that God is not for killing those for whom he died. He knows that God wants people to love one another not go to war against each other.

These things have you done, and I kept silence; you thought that I was altogether such an one as yourself: but I will reprove you, and set them in order before your eyes. (Psalm 50:21)

Phelps is the brunt of jokes as he without shame lays down the gospel in the most offensive ways.  But look at this man who was executed by the system because he did not act according to their beliefs and their traditions.

That is the very reason Jesus was executed by the evil system because he went against their evil and told them exactly where they were living. They did not want to hear it. They did not want to hear that they were wrong. They did not want anyone or anything to crash their party.

Phelps may be offensive in what he says and how he says it, but he is getting the message out that God hates sin.

I would not go out there and do it how he does. But the Supreme Court ruled in his favor that he has every right to protest.

Read who God hates:

  • Psalm 5:5, “The boastful shall not stand before Thine eyes; Thou dost hate all who do iniquity,”
  • Psalm 11:5, “The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked, and the one who loves violence His soul hates.”
  • Lev. 20:23, “Moreover, you shall not follow the customs of the nation which I shall drive out before you, for they did all these things, and therefore I have abhorred them.”
  • Prov. 6:16-19, There are six things which the Lord hates, yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: 17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that devises wicked plans, feet that run rapidly to evil,
    19 A false witness who utters lies, and one who spreads strife among brothers.”
  • Hosea 9:15, “All their evil is at Gilgal; indeed, I came to hate them there! Because of the wickedness of their deeds I will drive them out of My house! I will love them no more; All their princes are rebels.”



Earthquake Pearl Harbor Payback?

Luke 13:1 There were some present at that very time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2 And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? 3 No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? 5. No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”

And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed. (Acts 16:26)

Notice in this great earthquake that the prison doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed? God did this. God wants people free not locked in prisons. God wants people free not enslaved in any way.

Some of the Muslim world was celebrating when 9/11 happened seeing it as judgment from Allah on the great Satan..  But Jesus doesn’t see it that way. All the evil that takes place in America daily is proof that something is seriously wrong here in America . Disaster can come to anyone at anytime no person or nation is exempt from suffering and pain.

I’m sure  many have seen how some  tweeters and others online have said the earthquake in Japan is payback for Pearl Harbor.

As if the millions of lives lost and damaged with the horror of what was done to Hiroshima and Nagasaki is nothing to God. That all those souls he died  for was a mistake on God’s part. Seeing God as a fool who delights in causing pain and suffering.  But the truth of the matter is it is man  who does all this evil not God.

I wonder how these people who are mocking Japan’s pain and suffering account for Katrina.  The Gulf Oil Spill? Mine disasters? Who was God avenging then?  9/11?  Tornadoes? Floods?  Hurricanes? Wars and those MIA for years? Was this God’s karma on all those people, many of them Christians.

Disasters regularly hit America and the world square in the face.

Remember the 7.9 earthquake that hit the Bay area on October 17, 1989? A blessing on America? AIDS? God smiled his biggest smile when he sent AIDS to bless us?

Do they think God sent cancer as a blessing to America?  Death and destruction in many forms that suddenly appear out of nowhere to kill and destroy life and property in America. How do these mockers account for them? The fact is it is the result of sin in the universe.

A blessing from God on America? Or is God doing it to avenge someone he likes better?

How about serial killers that have been born, raised, and do all their killing here in America? There are so many one have to google it to find the number and that is just the ones caught.

All the abducted people reported as missing? Blessings or judgments or it just happened? Did God forget these children?

What about those evil people who abduct and rape and murder their victims right here in America? Sent from God to bless America?

According to them all the evil in America is a blessing from God. A big pat on America’s back from God for America being so holy. Disasters are in no way blessings.

Do they think 9/11 was a big surprise blessing from God to put happy faces on all the people who lost loved ones when the planes hit? And a “Don’t worry Be Happy t-shirt on all the dead  of 9/11.

Or what about America being number one in obesity and heart attacks? God is smiling at us?

Maybe  our national debt is what convinces them that America is special and exempt from the judgments of God.  How much America is loved throughout the world? Is this a blessing? Maybe it is our failing economy, unemployment, divorce rate,  poverty, children left behind, our war dead, diabetes, brain tumors, diabetes, leukemia, aneurysms,  anorexia, car wrecks that take thousand of lives yearly, teenage suicide,  alcoholism, divorces, jails, prisons, insane asylums, and cancer being misinterpreted as  bad things when in reality it is all a sign of God’s approval on America.

Big blessings sent by God to put big happy faces on the victims.

Should these folks who mock Japan’s pain and suffering from this earthquake see the drug problems, diseases, obesity, and the wild beasts (are now colonizing our nation)  as blessings from God?

I could go on and on listing the many evils that is destroying this nation but these few are enough to show that God is against SIN not people!

God said in his WORD:

The person who sins will die. A son will not be punished for his father’s sins, and a father will not be punished for his son’s sins. The righteousness of the righteous person will be his own, and the wickedness of the wicked person will be his own. (Ezekiel 18:20)

God only sends judgment on nations who neglect the poor and who mistreat the aliens, and neglect the widows and orphans. Those who reject his Son are the ones who will suffer his judgment.

Earthquakes and wars and famines and disease are here because of sin in the universe from the first time sin was committed.

Sin is a personal thing not a national one unless you happen to be ISRAEL.

America is the Roman Empire (edited)

[God began to reveal this to me several years ago that America is the Roman empire. I had never thought of such a thing. But God called me when a child to study his word. I know when he says something to me or reveals]

Many people do not know that the Hebrew prophet Daniel who lived about 600 BCE told us the future of the world.

From the Babylonian empire, which was the golden empire of the ancient world, to silver kingdom Persia under Cyrus and Darius, to the brass kingdom of  Greece under Alexander the Great, to the iron Roman Caesars, to right now iron (Strong) America, the entire history (history to us now) and the future of the world is revealed in that one dream God gave to a pagan king.

We can know what is here and what is still to come. As someone wisely said...history unfolding is prophecy un-scrolling.

We cannot look at events and say this is what God meant until we actually see it come to pass.
Then we look at the prophecies and see it as clear as could be.

IE: We now know that the gold, silver, brass and iron were the four empires that came one after the other. The four superpowers of their day.

Babylon Persia Greece and Rome. No other kingdoms will arise..

The king of Babylon at that time dreamed a dream of a great image. God gave Nebuchadnezzar a dream he could not understand. The frustrated king was told of Daniel the Hebrew captive who might be able to help him with his problem.

Daniel was one of those that had been carried there from Israel.

The king called for him and by God’s power the prophet (seer) told the king his dream and the meaning of it.

Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. (Daniel 2:31-34)
In Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the great image where he saw the gold head, the silver chest, the brass belly and iron legs with feet of iron and clay; he never said the iron had a break in it, that it ended. It is intact somewhere. The image goes from the head all the way down to the feet and toes of iron and clay. So really the Roman empire has never ended. So where is it?

In north America.

Now Daniel the prophet told Nebuchadnezzar he was the head of gold.
So the king was the empire since he controlled it.
“You are this head of gold.”
And wherever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven has he given into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all. You are this head of gold. (Daniel 2:38)

In other words the empires were and are people with minds. And minds think..

Unfortunately today Barack Obama is America. He is the president so he fits that description Daniel gave.

Nebuchadnezzar was Babylon. Darius was Persia. Alexander was Greece. The Caesars were and are Rome.

Also out of the Roman empire will come the son of the devil, who is the son of perdition, the Antichrist. No doubt it is certain the Antichrist will be a Roman. He has to come out of the nation that has the technological ability to make everyone small and great take the mark on their forehead or on their hand.
Test-tube baby? Cloning? Sperm bank? Who knows but the modern day Damien will appear soon.
He has to for scripture demands it.

Nebuchadnezzar was the head of gold. Then came Cyrus (Persia) who overthrew Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar), then came Alexander (Greece) who overthrew Persia.
Then came Rome (Caesars) who crushed them all and ruled the world. Rome began in 7 BC. Rome is the ruler power of the ages. It is the last kingdom that will exist when Jesus comes again. The very empire that rejected and executed him.
It is still ruling today. Only under a different name; America. City states united and called the United States.

Study the image yourself and find that the legs and feet and toes of iron and clay never broke in the dream nor in history. It is intact to this day.
It traveled through the ages and arrived here a few hundred years ago.

1776 AD it became the USA; it revived. The deadly wound was healed, the wound delivered to it by Christianity and caused it to “fall” in 476 AD was healed.

Rome was able to continue ruling since many (IE: Constantine himself) who professed Christianity never learned to love their neighbor as commanded by Jesus the founder of Christianity.  Nothing but wars from then to now by so called Christians. When Christianity reached the mighty Roman empire the emperor did what this nation does today; mix church and state. This is actually what brought on the Dark Ages. God was seen as the God of the state and the true Christians died for being seriously annoying.

The two legs; Rome divided into Rome and Constantinople.

But at the end of the age right before the stone (Jesus Christ) cut out of the mountain(God)
smites the image on its feet it will still be ruling the world. It has to be for it is the last kingdom. Where is Rome? Is it ten nations? Using that you could name ten nationalities and come up with America.
The Scotch-Irish the English the French, the Italian, the Spaniard, the German, the Native American the Blacks, etc until you have ten bloods in one nation. Ten minds forming one mind to form one ruling government.

What thinks for the kingdom is the kingdom. The eagle represented ancient Rome and the eagle represents America.

The European Union call it what you will; America ( Roman Empire) rules the world and will rule until Jesus Christ returns.
They mingle but do not cleave to one another as Daniel said.

Americans  who are of diverse nations mingle but do not cleave to one another. America is famous for its different peoples who mingle but do not mix. It is that way in America. Mingling but not mixing.  What else could Daniel mean? He saw the future and he saw the United States of America as the last kingdom.

The  iron and clay feet and toes must be in power when Jesus Christ returns. The stone will smite the image on its feet. America is the feet or iron and clay.
The feet Daniel saw is what is holding up the rest of the image.

This dreadful image walks  if you will…it has walked through the ages causing death and destruction wherever it went…
this image is alive and well today.
Yes it has built nations,but also made wars and death and shed much blood.
Daniel said..”In the days of these kings..” all those kings (minds) must be in existence at the end of days. What they think must exist and it does in how the world lives today under the rule of America.
Rome ruled with its legions as does America with its military. Who is able to make war with the beast? No one can make war with America. Nebuchadnezzar himself was the head of gold. Babylon is money and sex and power and fame.

and the other kings are Cyrus, Alexander and the Caesars. The Caesars which are now the American presidents. If one studies America they will find within its design Rome and Greece and Persia and Babylon. It is sure. This study goes on and on but I’m trying to come to the point.

Then the Lord after he has utterly destroyed the ruling dominating empire he will set up his kingdom which will fill the earth.
What a day that will be! It is right upon us.

The New World Order, the verichip, the swine flu,  earthquakes happening all over the globe and tsunamis, etc., and pestilences and wars and rumors of wars are all signs that the time is come.

Consider…..America has a great military like Rome did.
Did any army compare with the Roman Legions? It ruled the world!
Caesars/presidents
Roman senators/United States senators

Assemblies/Congress
Highways and isn’t this what Rome is also famous for? Their highways?
The lex Hortensia (287 BC.) was as the Judicial, Legislative and Executive branches of the United States.
The Pantheon of Rome looks just like the United States capitol building, the White House, the courthouses across the land of this nation all have their pillars and columns and domes as did ancient Rome..

and on and on the same….
What mind designed the courtyards, pillars and columns that are precisely the same in America and design and purpose as they were in ancient Rome? It must have been a Roman mind. How can it not be?

How did the Romans get to America? By ship.
During the time of the early church the Gentile Christians were more in number than the Jewish Christians. After the apostles died things did not go well.

(See Acts 20:26-31)
Paul warned of what lie ahead.

So how did the Romans get from Rome to America? Ships.
And they brought the Bible with them. The Bible they received when Paul the apostle took the word of God to them. he wrote a letter to them. It is called the epistle to the Romans. Paul did say to Israel that because they rejected the gospel to the Gentiles he would go.
The Gentiles are the very ones who have the gospel today. (Israel has been partially blinded by God for while. See Romans 11) Paul took the gospel to Rome. The Bible and History verify this. Everything in America was designed after the ancient Roman frame by the Gentiles who had the gospel, the very ones who came to this land and called it the United States of America.

And the Bible per se was not used by the founding fathers, it was already instilled in them to know right from wrong. It was part of their culture. They used the  knowledge of right and wrong, justice and punishment to form the Constitution. There was nothing else for them to use. It was all they needed the knowledge of right from wrong. That is all that exists to do: either right or wrong. All civilized nations know this.

Saying they based the Constitution and Bill of Rights on the Bible can be said of many nations.  All nations in the world do their best to do what is right. America is not a city set on a hill,  unless you mean Capitol Hill…it is one of many.

They insist that Rome must revive. But Rome never stopped being in power. It is still in power only called by another name. Its deadly wound was healed in 1776.

Who else can it be but America? The last kingdom must be in existence even as Daniel the prophet said.
What other nation in the history of the world could be Rome today?
Egypt? China? Korea? Spain? Portugal? New Zea land? Chile? Paraguay? Cuba?
India? Russia? Mexico? Syria? Pakistan? Africa? Iran? Iraq?
You could name every country in the world and it can..
Only be America.

In Pay Attention To Daniel’s Prophecy (Watch tower and Tract Society)
(I am not of the Jehovah’s Witness religion, but I appreciate their literature on history of the world and the Roman church. I also find much information from Baptist sources and other churches who distribute their literature on the history of the world and the papacy. It says…

“The Roman world power, however did not end with the removal of its last emperor in Rome in 476 C.E. For many centuries, papal Rome continued to exercise power over Europe. It did so through the feudal system, in which most of Europe’s inhabitants were subject to a lord, then to a king. And all kings acknowledged the authority of the pope.
Thus the holy Roman empire with papal Rome as its focal point dominated world affairs throughout that long period of history called the Dark Ages.”

Historian H. G. Wells wrote: “This new Roman power…was in several respects a different thing from any of the great empires that had hitherto prevailed in the civilized world…..[It] incorporated nearly all the Greek people in the world, and its population was strongly less Hamitic and Semitic than that of any preceding empire….It was so far a new pattern in history.

The Roman empire was a growth, an unplanned novel growth; the Roman people found themselves engaged unawares in a vast administrative experiment.” End of quote.

Notice this by HG Wells…”in which most of Europe’s inhabitants were subject to a lord, then to a king.”

and England got themselves a king, was subject to the pope. Then they decided they wanted to be Anglican. They left the pope’s authority. They then decided to come to America bringing all their Roman thinking with them logged in their lives with all the history of Rome mixed with Christianity.

And they called it the United States of America.

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. (Revelation of Jesus Christ 18:2)

How does Babylon fall? It comes down with the other kingdoms Daniel saw in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. When the stone cut out of the mountain smites the image  on its feet all the image is destroyed.  Babylon comes down. All four kingdoms (Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome) are destroyed when the image is smitten. This image has been stomping through the ages trampling everything in the path of world history. It is the world and its nations its systems its power. All in rebellion against God. This image is alive and well today. It exists in the gold (money) and silver (false religion) the brass (mighty armies) and the iron (power to oppress) and clay (the oppressed). These are the kingdoms of the world which all must be destroyed for the kingdom of God to be set up. The kingdom of which as the angel Gabriel told Mary about her Son’s kingdom..“Of his kingdom there shall be no end.”

Everything that is Babylonian everything that is Persian and everything that is Grecian and everything that is Roman exists today in  America and is America. It  alone is the last kingdom (iron and clay) with great power that visually exists right before it is destroyed by the mighty power of God.

It is the kingdom that rules right now, the last kingdom, and its future is foretold in the prophecy of Daniel.
