Wake Up Call

I was listening to a special with Hal Lindsey who is one of the best and most proven correct on Bible Prophecy that is known. As I really listened it was so evident that this was truth, so what I sensed must be shared the best I can with you all as it is a “wake up call” to America and to the American church.

I sense a trembling within, I sense a rumbling like a thunder in the distance, and I sense that I will be held accountable to God if I do not warn others what God fires in me. According to Ezekiel if we do not warn what we see, if we do not blow the trumpet God puts in our mouth then we are held accountable for the blood of others. Ezekiel 33 explains this.

Hal Lindsey stated all the reasons why, using world history that has continuously repeated itself, America could not stand much longer as it is today. He gave all the critical reasons why and how great nations have fallen in the past and we have all of those things going on today in America. Just the abortions, homosexuality, the demonic, sexual and violent entertainment, the greed of power and materialism, and the great pride in us are all enough to take us down without serious godly repentance. We cannot be deceived to think because we have a Christian president that God has winked at our continual wickedness of forsaking Him. We have only been a great nation because we were blessed of God and under His grace. He also stated that America would not stay the world power it is now according to the Scriptures. He says America is not even mentioned in the Bible prophecies anywhere.

He listed several things that could easily happen to us and says the top officials of our country know it. They are:

  1. Nuclear “near holocaust.”
  2. Economic collapse because our Federal Reserve who controls it all is controlled by foreign banks. And we have built our great economy on a debt principal because we are mostly a materialistic nation.
  3. We could be so severely crippled and taken over from terrorist attacks, as they have many things planned. He states how the Middle East nations are ready for war with hatred toward westerner’s as well as by other so called ally’s who are feeding weapons to them daily.

And it could all be very sudden. As in the days of Noah they were busy going on with life (eating and drinking, marrying, buying and selling, planting and building) when suddenly the destruction came. It was the same in the days of Lot and it will be just like that again in the day of Jesus return. Luke 17:20-37 Read it. We are just like the nation of Israel so many years ago that thought they were so special that nothing would ever happen to them They thought that God would never allow the destruction and captivity that happened to them. We just must wake up! The Fathers heart is grieved at the constant wickedness and the evil fruit is nearly ripe. The assigned judgment will come whether we are ready or not.

The scripture says “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with too much excess, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap, for it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.” Luke 21:34-36. We can just get so intoxicated and weighed down by all the stuff in this world and all the good life that our senses are dulled to the voice and “wake up call “of the Lord in our lives.

There will not be another chance to get prepared, the time is right now to know God and know you are living holy and righteous acknowledging Him in all your ways. Time is running out. We do not have another generation for our country to live in the freedom it has now. Lives need to be transformed, hearts need to forgive and be healed, and whole families need to change their directions and lifestyles. Children must have selfless sacrificial parents to show them how to love God and live for Him in a world that rejects Him. Marriages must prevent shipwreck by selfless love and commitment to each other. We must live ready to meet the Lord everyday.

We are on the threshold of such darkness and such light coming at the same time. Jesus said there would be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea, Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. (Luke 21:25-26) Jesus said, “Don’t be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; but rather be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body.” Matthew 10:28

So that doesn’t mean we will not have a harvest of souls come into the Kingdom. It does not mean that there is not a faithful remnant church who has kept their garments unspotted, holding forth the word of God as they shine as lights in a crooked and perverse world. It does not mean that we will not all suffer some in this judgment, but we must be found secure in the ark of Christ Jesus. The door is wide open now, but it will soon shut leaving no more chance to change our plight.

But it does mean that a big percentage of the American church is so much like the world that they are not ready for this. We must prepare ourselves with an all out 100% commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ in holiness and consecrated lives that love Him more than life. We must prepare by our daily focus on our soon coming King and on Kingdom living now in the power of His might, seeking the lost, hurting, desperate and wounded that we can help on into safety.

Just a messenger, crying in the wilderness, “Do not be lulled to sleep, worn down, and deceived, wake up and know the season of God.” The time and present standing is likely to be short for America. We must pray and weep and repent as a people of God. We must cry and weep over the abominations in our country unto God, and make sure that we know and the Lord knows we are among the ones He marks as belonging to Him.

With the fear of the Lord in me, His love in my heart, and the terror of the Lord over lost souls, all constrains me to go bear His fruit wherever He leads me. God help us hear! And do!
