Prophecy 2013 -- The Year Winners Become Losers (Part 2 Of 2)

In a world that worships knowledge and the pursuit of intelligence it seems a great trick or full blown deception seems to have been laid on them all from one end of the globe to the other. Is that possible? In fact it is a promise of scripture that while the last generation will be pursuing more knowledge they will give up the knowledge of the truth, or more accurately the love of the truth. (2 Tim 3: 7) Huge gaps between perception and reality, truth and error and morality and anarchy have already begun to sweep the world. Politics has slid into power grabbing mindless corruption while statesmanship and honor are almost laughed off the platform.
In an example, a recent video appeared on the internet in which voters in Boston were standing in the long lines waiting to vote as an interviewer asked them basic questions about why they were out to vote. After they exuberantly explained how they wanted to keep moving 'forward' (Obama's 2012 campaign slogan) they were asked some fundamental questions about current affairs and politics in general.
No one in that Bean Town crowd knew who Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi was or how many members of the House, Senate or judiciary there are in each branch. What they were sure of is that abortions, gay rights and free school money from Obama are in their opinion — "moving forward."
Morality has been replaced with reprobation and even the most refined definition of morality would be lost on these kinds of people. Word pictures would fail to jar the last day's crowds from their slogan driven course of life.
Pictures of two men holding hands at an altar while professing marriage vows or the bloody mangled bodies of the unborn lying in profusion in plastic lined medical waste boxes fail to disturb them. This is the definition not of reprobation and immorality alone, it is a vivid picture of an entire generation tripping down the path to reprobation with cell phones and gadgets in hand and a head full of dreams of better days just after getting out of college — all courtesy of big government.
The rise of reprobation is part and parcel to the prophecies of the last days. The reason for the great slide into both immorality and reprobation are clearly cited, but largely ignored. In this generation where God is dismissed by the so called 'intelligent' generation the great dumbing down has long since begun. To wit:
"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient" (Ro 1: 28)
I have always been amazed by the fact that I have accurately seen the future countless times but God keeps the messages about America to a basic minimum up to this moment in my life. Pondering this repeatedly has led me to conclude that God has his own sense of prophetic economics. Since the Bible is replete with thousands of prophecies about the last days that go unheard, unheeded and ignored, why should he add yet more material to bother an unbelieving world?
A recent well known online Christian site published a four page prophetic utterance from one of its founders that read like a rebuke to Christians for being so critical of Barack Obama. It said that the criticism was producing a 'Jezebel' like spirit in the White House. Whew!
The spirit in the White House has nothing to do with Christian criticism, in fact if the Christians that are already part of the prophesied apostasy of the church were more discerning and critical of Barack Obama starting back in 2008, he would not even be in the White House.
Much of what is being called prophecy today is pure nonsense and in many instances should be rebuked itself along with those who are going headlong into the doctrines of devils (1 Tim 4: 1) and leaving scripturally sound doctrine. (2 Tim 4: 3) The aforementioned prophecy may have simply been a case of fleshly exuberance substituting for Holy Spirit guided revelation. This is one of the most intense periods of history our world will ever undergo; it is not the day to play the prophet for the titillation of the unsuspecting, or for fame and fortune. Christ made this abundantly clear. It is a day that will cost many lives and nations, kingdoms and empires will topple like so many dominos in a row.
"For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." (Mt 24: 21, 22)
The two clearest and most compelling revelations I have been given to date have come with a mandate and a command not to hide or change them in any fashion. The first is that the period of Christ's return is within my lifetime or shortly thereafter. I am quickly approaching the generally allotted time of my three score years and ten; you can do the math.
The second was shown specifically for America. It will, starting now, this year and forward, begin to sink as a world economic power. We will see poverty and the lack of consumer goods and basic life sustaining food supplies disappear on a scale we have never seen since the Great Depression.
Out of Europe's financial collapse will arise the most powerful despot the world will ever encounter, on the wings of the most unusual economic system the world has ever seen. Economically crippled America will see his system as a godsend along with the rest of the world.
The recent election results have proved that a few food stamps, a cell phone and forgiven school loans can buy the votes of the dumbed down pop culture minions of the nation, but 16 trillion in debt, billions in wasted green giveaways and shovel ready jobs that don't exist have been mostly disregarded. As for someone to lead the nation into an economic collapse, the record shows, we have chosen the right man for the job.
It is far too late, to once again listen to phrase repeated so often in the Forrest Gump movie; "stupid is as stupid does." It's a done deal!
In the seventh century one man (Muhammad) sat alone in the caves of Medina receiving a vision which he doubted came from God, but after the encouragement of his wife he presented it to the world as an all new religion that would eventually sweep 1.5 billion people into following his teachings. Thirteen centuries later as the world struggles with heightened technologies, world problems and the threat on nuclear doom in the background it now presumes to force every person on earth into its grip.
But what are we being invited into? Women are a little higher than common livestock, beheadings and stoning are commonplace and the way of life among Muslim populations seems just a pinch above the level of cavemen. What came out of the caves of Medina seems totally unattractive to anyone except those who are forced to believe it or die.
The second cave is a manmade tomb carved out of the side of a mountain by a rich man named Joseph of Arimathaea. Jesus Christ who presented himself as the Son of God, healed the sick, raised the dead and proclaimed he was the only pathway directly to God, was placed there as we say, dead as a door nail. Three days later he emerged alive to seal the promise that he is not only the King of kings but he is, as he told Martha, the resurrection and the life. (John 11: 25)
What came out of Joseph's private cave has since been made public throughout the world and it is the promise and proclamation that we will all emerge from our own caves of darkness to be judged by the one who spent three days in the belly of death.
At the blowing of the great trump of God nations will cease to exist as they do today and the rule of fallen man will be finished forever.
"And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever." (Rev 11: 15)
Finally a third cave is mentioned in the Bible which the wicked, the abortionist, the same sex marriage crowd and the sinners in general will seek to hide themselves in, but in vain.
The great prophet Isaiah describes man's frantic search for the caves in the last hours of time as we know it. "And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth." (Isa 2: 19)
It is John the Revelator who details the reasons men flee to the caves, howbeit in total futility.
"And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" (Rev 6: 14-17)
Three caves, three doors, three separate fates await the entire world and to the last minute the choice is always ours to make.
