The Precipitating Cause
Look! You can almost see him; his is face wet with a strong man’s tears. Listen1 You can almost hear him weeping, as he laments for his people.
Oh that my head were waters and my eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people. Jeremiah 9:1
God will destroy the sinful nations that forget Him.
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. Psalm 9:17
Jeremiah’s people were standing on the precipice of destruction; they were pitching their tents on the epicenter. Jeremiah knew that disobedience brings God’s judgment. All his prophecies did not come to fulfillment quickly and he like many prophets were not only hated but ignored. America is homesteading on terrain just as sinful and dangerous as in Jeremiah’s day.
Yet, the Lord never judges a people without first raising up prophetic voices to warn them. Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. Amos 3:7
Most nations who are judged by God have one sordid thing in common; there is one loathesome but foolish thread that binds them together in common thinking. They are so preoccupied with their own sinful agenda that they do not hear the sound of the trumpet or the cry of the watchman or the prophet.
In Jeremiah’s day the people were so sinful it no longer bothered them. Today we take in stride what we would have fought tooth and toenail twenty years ago.
"Were they ashamed because of the abomination they have done? They were not even ashamed at all; They did not even know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; At the time that I punish them, They shall be cast down," says the LORD. Jeremiah 6:15
Modern Day Voices:
There are modern day voices crying out with just as much passion as Jeremiah, one such voice is that of David Wilkerson.
He had an urgent and compelling warning and I quote in part. "An earth-shattering calamity is about to happen. It is going to be so frightening; we are all going to tremble – even the godliest among us. It will engulf the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across America will experience riots and blazing fires – such as we saw in Watts, Los Angeles, years ago. There will be riots and fires in cities worldwide. There will be looting – including Times Square, New York City.” For the entire article by David Wilkerson go to www.worldchallenge.org
Many are making fun of Wilkerson’s prophecy, let me be perfectly clear: Because something has not happened yet does not mean it won’t occur!!!!
If I didn’t think Wilkerson’s prophecy had validity I would not have it in this Trumpet Blast!!!
God is a God of patterns. God does not change! Judgment is pending. One of many examples is found in the tiny book of Nahum. Few know anything about this book or its prophecy. Basically it warns of God’s pending judgment of Nineveh about 150 years after they had repented by the preaching of Jonah. This time they went too far with their barbaric cruelty, idolatry, and wickedness. God’s judgment fell and there was no remedy.
But what could cause such a chain of catastrophic events in our time? Certainly the cause is our blatant and continued sinning, but what is the catalyst? It could be several things. I have listed four possibilities that could trigger riots and fire in out streets.
1. Terrorist attacks could happen at any moment. More and more Islamic cell groups are living and breathing behind the walls of many of Islamic Mosques.
What is very possible is that Iran or another rogue nation could launch an EMP attack; Iran and others have the capability.
2. Natural weather violence could cause great havoc such as Comets, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, and tsunamis. I have never bought into “global warming”, but I believe we will have climate change. The seas will indeed be raging. I remember the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina; I can still see the images.
3. A total economic collapse of our system. When the masses do not have enough money to purchase food and few other basic needs, then we could see the real evil of the human heart.
4. What could be more divesting than the aforementioned combined is the assassination of President Barack Hussein Obama.
I urge everyone to pray for his safety as well as his relationship with the LORD. I believe it’s very feasible for him to be assassinated. There are several entities that could take advantage of or benefit from his assassination.
Russia could benefit. Do not count Russia out of the picture. This is not the exact quote but a paraphrase “The eagle is fast asleep while the bear is playing possum.” Russia is a prime player in the last day’s scenario. If we are pre-occupied with civil unrest then Russia could seize the opportunity.
The entire nation of Islam could reap benefits from such an assassination. While I believe Obama is either a Muslim or a Muslim sympathizer he still could be a pawn in their hands. If our nation’s cities are being plagued riots what better time to launch their own attack from the thousands of cell groups scattered around.
China is biting at the bit to come in and destroy us. It could even be a three sided attack – Russia, China, and the Islamic world. But guess who is likely to get the blame? It would most likely be someone connected to a “white supremacist” group, although one can’t rule out someone in that group as well.
This could be very real and we must pray for Obama’s safety.
Alive or dead Barrack Hussein Obama will bring great change to America – he did not lie, but it’s the change that I fear.
Our Sins Have Reached Heaven
Our sins have reached Heaven and God will throw them back in our faces. The radical homosexuals not only commit the grossest acts of perverted sex, but demand that we legitimise it. This sin has polarized much of the Church, but it shouldn’t have. There should never be a compromise with sin.
We have murdered 50 million babies since Roe v. Wade. We continue to embrace false religions – everything from Wicca to Islam. After expelling God from our government “ruined” schools we are doing away with Jewish and Christian holidays and replacing them with Islamic holidays. GOD has not only been expelled from our schools but has been excommunicated from some of our liberal Churches. Yet with all our abominations, with all our immorality and lasciviousness, God’s hand is still hovering, it has yet to come down. BUT BE WARNED: We are about to cross over. We are going to experience the “Precipitating Cause”. The precipitating cause as defined in the dictionary is the final cause to hasten the occurrence… to cast down or plunge violently or abruptly”.
It’s basically “the straw that broke the camel’s back”. But in this case it is the hurricane that threw the eagle to the ground.
So what is this tipping point – the precipitating cause – the coup de grace? I believe it is when the United States either turns her back on Israel or turns against Israel altogether! I believe alive or dead Obama spells out danger. He is not a friend of Israel; in fact I think his interest is with those Islamic nations that surround her.
George Bernard Shaw said: “We learn from history that we learn nothing from history.”
George Santayana said: “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
The Apostle Paul said: Now these things happened as examples for us, so that we would not crave evil things as they also craved.
1 Corinthians 10:6
A Brief Look Back
One only has to go back a few decades and revisit Hitler and his regime. What was the milieu of that time and how does it compare with today?
The following are just eight out of 26 similarities between America and Nazi Germany, written and compiled by Brannon Howse.
1. Hitler outlawed school prayer in Germany. In 1962, The U.S. Supreme Court did the same for us.
2. Hitler's holocaust killed between 8 and 11 million Jews and non-Jews. Americans have killed an estimated 50 million babies since abortion was legalized through the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973.
3. Private schools were abolished by Hitler and all education placed under Nazi control. There is constant pressure from federal and many state education authorities to require that Christian schools use state-mandated, humanistic textbooks. The Home School Legal Defense Association is fighting numerous battles at any given time to prevent parents from losing the right to educate their children as they see fit.
4. Hitler prevented dissenters from using radio to challenge his worldview. Many powerful liberals in America have made clear their intent to reintroduce the "Fairness Doctrine" that would require conservative and religious radio stations to offer equal time to anti-Christian, anti-conservative worldviews.
5. Hitler outlawed the cross and replaced it with the swastika.
Today many churches, Christian colleges, and universities have willingly removed the cross from their buildings. Numerous court cases sponsored by the ACLU have required the removal of the cross from public grounds. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2005 that the Ten Commandments cannot be posted on public grounds for religious purposes.
6. In Germany, pastors often cited Romans 13:1-2 to encourage Christians to obey the Nazis. Today in America, many pastors have a false view of Romans 13:1-2 and have convinced millions that to disobey governing authorities is to disobey God. This poor training would facilitate Christians here doing just as the German Christians did if faced with similar challenges.
7. Germans accepted socialism to avoid pain. Today's Americans are rejecting capitalism in exchange for government-sponsored "free" healthcare, education, and countless other government handouts.
8. Hitler killed 270,000 handicapped people through active euthanasia. America and the courts are rushing toward the same with the murder of individuals such as Terri Schiavo. Oregon voters passed their Death with Dignity Act in 1994 and re-affirmed it in 1997. Washington state voters legalized doctor-assisted suicide on November 4, 2008. In December 2008, a Montana judge ruled terminally ill residents of that state have the right to physician-assisted suicide, and "death with dignity" is gaining acceptance in other states as well.
Oh yeah, I thought of one more similarity that I would like to add. On January 2, 1939, Time Magazine published its annual Man of the Year issue. For the year 1938, Time had chosen Adolph Hitler as the man of the year. On October the 8th of this year Barack Hussein Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said the Nobel Prize Committee's decision was "evidence of a realistic vision of the dynamics of world development."
Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro called Obama's Nobel Prize a "positive measure.” In an article, Castro said the Nobel committee decision was designed to criticize "the politics of genocide" pursued by Obama's predecessors.
A spokesman for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said, “Tehran hoped it would give Obama the incentive to walk in the path of bringing justice to the world order.”
Notice the approval list! Notice who Obama’s supporters are.
Obama said after being notified of this award “I accept this award as a call to action” I agree this award will help propel his evil agenda to change the United States into a third world country that we won’t recognize. In addition it will fuel the terrorists to try to drown Israel in the sea.
I have no doubt the direction Obama is heading - I will pray against it!
We need to watch what is coming out of the White House - especially the next three to six months. Listen to not only the exact words Obama says, but also the intonation of those words. Israel is in great danger! Please understand. Israel is also a sinful nation and the LORD God will punish her by using the very enemies that surround her.
Obama’s Agenda - The short list
After just moving into the White House Obama demonstrated what many feared and expected. i.e. his love for Islam and his loathing for Israel. One of his first actions, even before the sweat of the movers dried, was to place a call to Mahmoud Abbas, who is President of the Palestinian National Authority. Then he gave his first one-on-one interview not with CNN, but with Al Arabiya TV. Yet, he even topped this abomination when he bowed low to Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. However, we get even a closer look at Obama’s “call to action” when he rebuked Netanyahu and Israel at the United Nations General Assembly. For Obama to rebuke Netanyahu is analogous to a first year freshman in Political Science class 101, rebuking Judge Robert Bork!
The Bible predicts that All the nations will turn against Israel. I am not sure of the sequence, but one thing is for certain, Israel will attack Iran. Many agree the war with Iran is inevitable - it’s not if, but when. Many predict, and I have a strong tendency to concur, that this war will take place before Christmas of 2009. It will occur without the approval of the United States. Remember wars are won and lost in the press almost as much as on the battle field. The tide will turn against Israel, and I believe Obama will help lead the charge.
I want to be as precise, candid, and clear as I can. If the United States of America ever turns her back on Israel or worse turns against Israel altogether, I will unconditionally renounce my citizenship. I will not fight against Yahweh – the Almighty God of the Universe!!
There comes a time when God is finished with a nation. They cross over the line - they have gone too far. Has America gone too far? I pray not but it’s quite possible.
Obadiah is another little known prophet and had a chilling prophecy.
Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD.
I pray our epitaph will not read: The late and once great America went too far. She experienced the ”precipitating cause”, she reached the “tipping point”, her coup de grace came when she pushed God one too many times and was suddenly cut off without remedy!!!
I Must Get This Out
I want to make a quick but pressing parenthetical shift. I must get this out. This war with Afghanistan may very well prove to be a disaster of the worse making. I have a gut-wrenching fear for our troops as well as the outcome in general. Pray our troops will return. This war with Afghanistan may be something we do not even want to think about.
After a message such as this, let me close with this blessing.
The Rabbinical Blessing:
The Lord bless thee and
keep thee: The Lord maketh His face to shine upon thee and be gracious unto
The Lord lift up the light of His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
