My choice would have been to put this message out later in 2012, but on December first, I realized that nothing could wait, the timing of a message is equally important to EarnWithSocial the content. Here are seven points and a conclusion that I can only pray that many will give careful consideration to, as we enter what promises to be, the most critical year of our entire history as a nation.
It may not even need to be said that terms like liberal and conservative, the right wing and the left have ceased to be terms that can be used in the broadest sense, as they have been for generations. Now the battle is emerging between good and evil, right and wrong and Godliness and ungodliness. It is all preparation for the coming world ruler known as the antichrist and his aide the false prophet.
Prophets are guided by their scriptural grounding and their education, their experience and their Holy Spirit anointing (Interventional leading of God) but as already stated their sense of timing has to be well honed to complete the picture. When antichrist is ready to be revealed no one in the faith will be deceived. “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” (Mt 24: 24)
Suffice it to say that in a world without enough spiritual discernment to sense the difference between a doughnut and a demon, most will be swept away by the sheer magnetism, economic prowess and military and political genius of the antichrist. His aide, ‘the false prophet’ (Rev 16: 13) will provide many demonstrations to help them along like, drawing fire down from heaven. Some still debate whether this is a supernatural feat or some sort of pyrotechnical display, but it all helps to increase confidence in the world’s last, and most dreaded, ultimate dictator. Oddly there are those who are satisfied that the prophecy is already under fulfillment with the sending of unmanned drones to other continents to wreak havoc and death and subsequently returning without a hitch.
1. Decision Making – Before a single word can be applied to any part of this declaration it is a much older declaration that should be considered. This is a verse of the scripture that I believe was clearly given to me to share because, it is exactly where America will be in 2012. To wit:
“Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.” (Joel 3: 13, 14)
We are cruising toward the end of a 40 year, or generational run, into unbridled sin, political corruption and social pollution aided by media, academia and the apostate church. God does not wait for millennia, or even centuries, before responding to the moral plunge of nations. Both the scriptures and history bear witness to this fact. Quite literally, the jig is about up.
2. Economics – All the Super Committees, House and Senate plans and the best minds of the political class are struggling to find the best way to cure our economic ills. How will that proceed and what will be the result? Here is where I will plunge into un-popularity, not that I mind, but if I am to be completely honest it is the word I received over thirty five years ago upon which I will stand.
Something much greater than a stock market crash is looming for America and it will result in the two words out of my old revelation that stand out the most. Poverty and scarcity are the words and while the path to them is not quite apparent, this will be the result. There will be no complete economic recovery, but the spirit of the nation and its underlying principles do not have to die along with it. A recovery will only come after world events lead to an entirely new way the world is governed, and I am not talking about the rule of the antichrist, but rather, something just a bit further away than that.
3. Politics – If I become wildly unpopular for saying the aforementioned I will no doubt incur the hatred of many politically minded people for saying the following. “As a people we must vote conservative in 2012, or die as a nation.”
I don’t ever put my own words in quotes, but the urgency of this message requires that I do not wait for others to find these words and finally quote them. Nationhood is in the balance, so I must suspend literary protocol for the moment.
The Pew Reports have aptly stated that since 2004 “Millennials, Xers, Boomers and Silents” have voted democratic, but predicted that would taper off in 2012. We may not want to wait for it to taper, but rather we should get charged up with the better reasoning and much better historical record of conservative thinking. Perhaps this would be a good year to consider this wisdom written by a man once declared to be the wisest man on earth. King Solomon said, “A wise man’s heart directs him toward the right, but the foolish man’s heart directs him toward the left.” (Ec 10: 2)
In choosing who will help guide the nation from the Oval Office, the field is narrowing down quickly, and so are the choices. As we approach the business of finding the best nominee, our judgment must be sharpened like never before, this is the most important year for politics in two centuries.
Mr. Cain is embattled with scandals, which may not be true at all, but the momentum seems to be lost and certainly the doubt will linger. He has challenged well and is worthy of respect in his bid for the Oval Office. While many feel we should not give up on this outstanding man, he may pull the plug himself.
