“The wicked go down to the realm of the dead, all the nations that forget God.” (Psalm 9:17)
There is no question that in the past, America was influenced greatly by the gospel, to be more precise – the church. Whether or not our leaders (past or present) were believers in Christ and had a personal relationship with the Lord is irrelevant, yet the fact remains that down through history, our foundation as a nation itself was guided upon the principles of the Christian faith. This, for the most part, due to the nature of America’s earliest beginnings, we were a “Christian nation”. That does not suggest that America was a nation which had a covenant with God – it didn’t. It simply means that there were believers in every aspect of society which influenced the early beginnings of the United States, from political to educational, Christians had great influence in early America. But over time that influence began to drift with each passing decade to such a degree that now our influence has become void in the direction of the nation, and worse, we have drifted away from the principles of the cross. In short, America is no more a ‘Christian’ nation.
The rise of immorality, perversion, violence, and social issues such as gay marriage and other issues which clearly have signaled a drastic change in the direction this nation is heading, is a clear signal that something has happened in America. I desire not to go into each and every reason for what I am about to post, the truth is, any bible believing believer who believes that there has been a significant change in the spirit of this land, can point to one thing and one thing only as to why things are progressively gotten worse in this country, and it’s because of what I have heard in my spirit 1 month ago, which I feel the time is now to release such a word. Here is what I heard in my spirit for both the church, as well as for the nation itself.
The glory has departed the nation.
There was a time where God greatly blessed America. Even when this nation did horrible things, the church still remained vital in the direction of the nation, and that glory rested, I believe for a period of time, and throughout history God’s glory shrouded the nation. But that glory has been lifted. As a result, the nation is now facing one of its greatest challenges, and it’s only getting worse.
The nation that forgets God shall come to ruin. It is the end of a Christian nation.
Any nation which has been given great spiritual light, which the United States has, from the past to the present, and ultimately turns to a spiritual whore, which this nation has ultimately done, then that nation, regardless of its past, will come to ruin. We are witnessing this now.
The hand of God has been removed.
For decades, America’s enemies have tried (and failed) to invade this nation. Throughout the past centuries since the founding of this nation, America has had a special protection upon it, but we can see from September 11th, 2001, that this nation has suffered great hostility from its enemies. We now live in a world of terror that threatens our very way of life, and there seems to be no end to those who would wreck havoc upon the land. The reason is simple, whatever protection we had, has been lifted.
Darkness has crept over the land.
When President Obama went on national television and declared his position which was in favor of same sex marriage, the first of any sitting U.S. to begin the shape of this nation by incorporating the idea of perversion. Since 2009, the rise of same sex marriage, followed by the U.S. Supreme Court in its declaration that gay marriage was indeed constitutional, changed the very fabric of this nation. Yet it’s not just gay marriage, spiritual darkness has crept over the land, from lawlessness, to rioting, to a spirit of apathy within the church, it is all a blinding spirit of darkness which has fallen over the nation.
The spirit of antichrist now reigns.
We can clearly see that the spirit of antichrist has appeared. Even now, spiritual leaders such as Pope Francis, and other spiritual leaders such as Rick Warren (among others) are pressing the issue of coming under the banner of a one world system, followed by a one world religion. This is the spirit of antichrist.
The nation shall not repent.
I know that many within the church has desired, and even declared that America shall be “saved”. But the reality is this – it won’t. It is going the way every other nation is going, the way of the beast. It shall not repent, but get worse.
It is the hour of selective judgments.
From water droughts in the west, to massive winter storms in the midwest and east coast, to warm/hot summer days, not to mention the rise of earthquakes in the midwest, there is a series of shakings which have captured the land. Even the past economic shakings have came to the land, all of which is due to God removing his hand from the land of plenty, turning it over to the spirit of the age.
The beginning of a beast kingdom is coming.
I don’t believe this needs any explanation, nor do I believe the Lord requires me to explain it in any great detail. We see this currently in our world.
They will do away with the Constitution and walk in agreement with the European nations.
This is one of the more surprising aspects of the word which came into my spirit. It is no question that the Constitution, which has been the central form of Government that gives men their freedom, is currently being shredded by past and present leaders. The reason is simple, the nation, like every other nation, must return back to a form of control and rule, maybe not as dramatic as past tyrannies such as Mao or Stalin, but suffice it to say, Satan is undermining the Constitution for one purpose, to bring about a world Government, which will be under his rule.
The nation shall not be used in such a way again.
No question that when we think about the United States, the image that comes to mind is the American flag waving, or the statue of Liberty shining brightly. This nation has fought wars, set many men free across the globe, and more importantly, God has used the modern church in America to reach the world for Christ. But that period of use is ending. It shall never come again. Whatever we once was in the past, and currently, to some degree, still are, it is coming to an end. Even countries such as China no longer fear us. That should tell us something has indeed changed.
The hope of the world lies in the cross through the move of the church – his remnant.
There is no question that there is a clear and growing separation in the modern church today, from that which is focused on self, money, materialism and spiritual encounters (such as angel feathers, gold dust and strange prophetic utterings) and less for the things of Christ. The teaching of the cross, the preaching of righteousness, the call to repent and the desire to crucify the flesh has all been forgotten in much of what is called the modern church. God is separating the wheat from the tare right before our eyes, and it is that group, the remnant, which will do great exploits for the kingdom of Christ. For it is the preaching of the cross which sets the sinner free, and brings freedom to those who are bound in religion.
That is what I heard in my spirit that I believe God would have me declare.
