The Only Solution To America’s Problems Is Jesus

I have never seen as much anger in the United States as I am seeing right now, and that greatly saddens me.  No matter what happens, we should always love one another.  Unfortunately, most Americans on both sides of the political spectrum are seething with hate right now.  Leading up to the election in November, the left and the right were primarily attacking each other with angry words, but now the level of physical violence that we are witnessing is extremely alarming.  The violence at the U.S. Capitol was just another example of the violence that stretched all throughout 2020 and that has continued in various parts of the nation this weekend.  Most of the time, the left only wants to condemn the violence that the right has committed, and the right only wants to condemn the violence that the left has committed.

But anyone that wants to be intellectually consistent has got to speak out against all of it.

You can’t just be against rioting, looting, arson and attacks on federal buildings when people that you do not like do it.

Emotions are running so high right now, and I understand that people are frustrated.  But no matter who we send to Washington, nothing ever seems to change very much.  The truth is that the way that our government has operated has remained remarkably consistent throughout the Bush/Clinton/Bush/Obama/Trump years.

And no matter who is president for the next four years, our government is going to keep going in the same direction.

Ultimately, people are fighting over personalities.  Many are absolutely convinced that the nation will be “saved” if their team wins, but that is a delusion.

I am sorry, but Joe Biden is not your personal Lord and Savior.  I have heard from some people that are so proud that they voted for Joe Biden, but I simply don’t understand how anyone can be proud of voting for a political party that is responsible for the deaths of more than 60 million unborn Americans since 1973.  For that alone, our nation deserves a fate that is worse than I can put into words.  I think that what Franklin Graham said about the current state of our nation the other day is very appropriate

“We are in trouble,” he said. “I believe God’s judgment is coming, for the sins of our nation are great and they are a stench in the nostrils of our Creator.”

On the other side, it is very important for Republicans to understand that Donald Trump is not the Messiah either.  He is just a man.  When he does what is right he should be commended, but when he does what is wrong he should be criticized.  We like to say that our politicians are “public servants”, and we should start treating them as such.  It should sicken us whenever we see anyone put our politicians up on pedestals and worship them.

We are not to worship any man.

Rather, we are supposed to worship God.

For years, I have been watching so many Americans put so much passion and so much energy into politics.

But politics is not going to solve America’s problems.

The only thing that is going to solve America’s problems is Jesus.

The reason why the United States became a great nation in the first place is because we were a Christian nation, and the only way we would ever have a chance of being a great nation again would be if we were to turn back to God with all of our hearts.

Anyone that comes to you with a plan to turn America around that does not include Jesus is just being delusional.

At this moment, deception is absolutely rampant on both sides of the political spectrum.  Some of the most ridiculous rumors imaginable are flying all over the place, but multitudes of people are falling for them hook, line and sinker.  Shadowy figures that don’t even want to reveal their real identities share “inside information” that ends up being proven wrong time after time, and yet some people continue to hang on every word.  False prophets have convinced vast hordes of sheeple that their “prophecies” about political events would come to pass, but once again this election has shown that they are complete frauds.

One of the good things that will come out of this period of time is that people will start to see the frauds for who they really are.

So many of the “pillow prophets” have been promising peace and prosperity, but the truth is that we are in the end times described in the Bible.  We are heading into one of the most difficult times in all of human history, but it will also be one of the greatest times in all of human history because God is going to be at work in amazing ways.

And God has a plan for you too.

God specifically placed you at this point in human history, and He has a purpose for doing that.

But if you keep running away from Him, you will never discover that purpose.

The plans that God has for you are greater than anything that you could ever come up with on your own, but He also has given you free will.

You can choose to keep going your own way, and you can choose to reject Him forever if you want.

But why would you want to do that?

God created you, and He loves you so much that He sent His Son to die on the cross for your sins.  This is what John 3:16 says…

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

You can have everlasting life if you are willing to enter into a relationship with God.

The Bible compares it to a marriage relationship, and it truly is a very serious commitment to make.  If you will repent of your sins and surrender everything to God, you will literally become a member of God’s family.  Every one of your sins will be washed away, you will be “born again”, and you will belong to God forever.

If you would like to give your life to God and make that commitment right now, all you have to do is to tell Him.  The following is a prayer that many have found helpful…

“Lord Jesus, I want to become a Christian.  I know that I am a sinner, and I thank You for dying on the cross for my sins.  I believe that you are the Son of God and that you rose from the dead.  I repent of my sins and I open the door of my life and ask You to be my Savior and Lord.  I commit my life to You.  Thank You for forgiving all of my sins and giving me eternal life.  Take control of my life and make me the kind of person that You want me to be.  I will live my life for You.  Amen.”

Of course praying that prayer and being “born again” is just the first step on a very long journey.  Developing your relationship with God is a process that lasts a lifetime, and you will need encouragement and assistance along the way.

It will be important to reach out to other believers so that they can help and guide you.

If you have read this entire article and you have decided that you don’t want to give your life to Jesus, I would very strongly encourage you to reconsider.

Ultimately, I don’t know how anyone is going to make it through what is ahead without God.

2020 was bad, but the times that are coming will be even worse.

Everything that can be shaken will be shaken, and Jesus is coming back.

So quit putting all of your passion and energy into politics, and start focusing on what really matters.

9 Signs Of The End Times That Are Unfolding Right In Front Of Our Eyes

Global events are beginning to spiral out of control, and this has created a resurgence in interest in what the Bible has to say about “the last days”.  Throughout the Scriptures, we are warned about apocalyptic events that will precede the second coming of Jesus Christ, and a lot of people are wondering if that period of time is now upon us.  All over the Internet, people are engaging in all sorts of speculation and lots of really bizarre theories are being thrown around, and this is causing a great deal of confusion.  But all of this confusion is not necessary, because the Bible is actually very clear about what is coming.

Jesus had quite a bit to say about the time just before His return, and He specifically instructed His followers to watch for certain signs.  He wanted us to understand that He knew about all of these things in advance, that He has a plan, and that He is in control.

So there is no need to fear.  In fact, Jesus told us these things so that we would not be afraid.

Three of the key chapters where Jesus discusses the events of the last days are Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21.  To set the stage for the rest of this article, let me share just three quick verses from Luke 21

9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:

11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Could it be possible that we have entered a time when these things are starting to be fulfilled?

To answer that question, let’s examine some of the global events that are currently unfolding…

#1 Wars And Rumors Of Wars

War is coming to the Middle East, and it might be coming a lot sooner than most people think.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is very eager to annex portions of Judea and Samaria before the U.S. election in November, and the coalition agreement that he reached with Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz allows him to do that as early as July.

I believe that it will happen at some point in the coming months, and the Palestinians are openly warning that such a move will mean war.  In fact, Mahmoud Abbas is so upset about this pending annexation that he just publicly backed out of all previous agreements with the United States and Israel…

In an emergency meeting in Ramallah Tuesday, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas announced that due to Israeli plans to annex parts of Judea and Samaria, all agreements with Israel and the U.S. are null and void.

This would include the Oslo Accords, which was the basis for the establishment of the Palestinian Authority.

And Jordan’s King Abdullah just told a German newspaper that annexation “would lead to a massive conflict with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan”

In an interview with the German newspaper Der Spiegel, the Jordanian monarch reiterated that a two-state solution was the “only way forward” as a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.

“What would happen if the Palestinian National Authority collapsed? There would be more chaos and extremism in the region. If Israel really annexed the West Bank in July, it would lead to a massive conflict with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan,” said Abdullah.

This is something to keep a very close eye on, and we also need to keep in mind that a major war between Israel and Iran could erupt at literally any moment as well.

#2 Earthquakes

Our planet continues to become increasing unstable, and my regular readers know that I am particularly concerned about the west coast of the United States.  It is just a matter of time before “the Big One” hits California, and this week we did see two very alarming quakes strike just off the California coast

The first measured at a 4.7 magnitude. It hit at 11:56 p.m. Sunday about 163 miles west of Eureka.

The second earthquake was stronger, measuring a 5.5 magnitude hitting in the same area about 160 miles west of Eureka at 12:02 a.m. Monday.

The second quake was at the same depth as the first earthquake at about 6 miles down.

Overall, there have been 2,668 earthquakes in California and Nevada over the last 7 days, and that is definitely unusual.

Meanwhile, large earthquakes continue to strike other areas of the globe with frightening regularity.  For example, a magnitude 6.2 quake just rocked the Mediterranean Sea, and that made headlines all over the globe.

In the days ahead, the shaking is only going to get worse, but most people don’t understand what is happening.

#3 Volcanoes

I have written about Mt. Popocatepetl near Mexico City many times, and it has roared to life once again.

In fact, it is being reported that it was shooting hot ash 20,000 feet into the air on Wednesday.

Keep a very close eye on this volcano, because someday a catastrophic eruption of Mt. Popocatepetl will result in the worst disaster in the history of Mexico.

Of course Mt. Popocatepetl is far from alone.  According to Volcano Discovery, 24 volcanoes around the globe are erupting right now, and dozens more are showing signs of unrest.

#4 Crazy Weather Patterns

You may have noticed that global weather patterns have gone absolutely nuts.

We are seeing record setting droughts in some parts of the world, in other areas we are witnessing unprecedented flooding, and global food production has been greatly disrupted by one unforeseen event after another.

For instance, this week India and Bangladesh are preparing for Super Cyclone Amphan to make landfall.  On Monday night, that storm “officially became the strongest storm ever recorded in the Bay of Bengal”

Millions of people in India and Bangladesh are bracing for what is now being called the strongest storm ever recorded in the Bay of Bengal. Super Cyclone Amphan is anticipated to make landfall in less than 36 hours, bringing destructive winds and heavy rain to a region already struggling with the coronavirus pandemic.

According to CNN, Super Cyclone Amphan officially became the strongest storm ever recorded in the Bay of Bengal on Monday night, after intensifying with sustained wind speeds of up to 165 miles per hour. Even though Amphan has weakened slightly the storm is still the equivalent of a Category 3 Atlantic hurricane, with winds speeds up to 115 mph.

#5 Armies Of Locusts

Billions of locusts have been traveling in giant swarms the size of major cities across large portions of Africa, the Middle East and Asia.  These mammoth swarms can travel up to 90 miles a day, and when they descend on a farm they can eat all of the vegetation in as little as 30 seconds.

I have written about these enormous locust armies numerous times, and they keep making headlines all over the world.  This week, video of these locusts “blocking out the sun in Iran” was being widely shared on social media…

Terrifying footage of an apocalyptic swarm of locusts blocking out the sun in Iran has emerged after it was revealed the military could be called to fight a plague that may destroy at least $7billion (£5.7bn) worth of crops.

The chilling video shows a haze formed of millions of the bugs covering the horizon on a motorway in the south of the country.

#6 African Swine Fever

Before COVID-19 came along, African Swine Fever was the most serious pestilence affecting the planet.

There is no vaccine, there is no cure, and it is killing pigs all over the globe at a staggering rate.

In fact, approximately half the pigs in China and approximately one-fourth of all the pigs in the entire world have already been wiped out by this disease.

Needless to say, this is having a tremendous impact on the global food supply, because much of the world relies on pig meat as a primary source of protein.

#7 Famines And Food Riots

You know that things are bad when even the United Nations is using the word “biblical” to describe the famines that are beginning to emerge around the globe.

The head of the UN World Food Program, David Beasley, is publicly warning that we are heading into “the worst humanitarian crisis since World War Two”, and he is telling us that we could soon see approximately 300,000 people literally starve to death every single day…

“If we can’t reach these people with the life-saving assistance they need, our analysis shows that 300,000 people could starve to death every single day over a three-month period”, he upheld. “This does not include the increase of starvation due to COVID-19”.

We have already witnessed very large food riots in Africa, and now they are starting to happen in South America.

For example, check out what just happened in the capital of Chile

The coronavirus hit Chile at a particularly delicate time. Back in October, the Chilean military deployed tanks and troops onto the streets of Santiago – the Chilean capital – and President Sebastian Pinera declaring a state of emergency to quell a violent uprising triggered by – of all things – a hike in metro fares (can you imagine that happening in NYC?).

Now, some of the nation’s poorest are rising up against the government again in a violent protest movement over the lack of government assistance. Specifically, food shortages have left thousands of Chileans with nothing to eat, and the mandatory closures have made it impossible for them to work or buy food.

Global food supplies have gotten very tight, and they are only going to get tighter in the months ahead.

#8 Economic Collapse

Countries all over the world have locked down their economies in 2020 due to fear of COVID-19, and that has plunged the entire global economy into a deep depression.

Here in the United States, more than 36 million Americans have already lost their jobs, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago says that the real rate of unemployment in the United States is now 30.7 percent, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta is projecting that U.S. GDP will fall by 42.8 percent during the second quarter of this year.

Now that our economic bubble has burst, the dominoes are just going to continue to tumble, and the days ahead are looking quite bleak.

#9 The Coronavirus Plague

This is the greatest public health crisis in a hundred years, and it looks like this pandemic is going to be with us for many months to come.

Already, there have been more than 5 million confirmed cases around the world and more than 300,000 people have died.  Many had been hoping that the worst was behind us, but the head of the WHO just told us that Tuesday was the worst day for new cases “since the outbreak began”

“We still have a long way to go in this pandemic,” Tedros said at a briefing in Geneva. “In the last 24 hours, there have been 106,000 cases reported to WHO – the most in a single day since the outbreak began. Almost two-thirds of these cases were reported in just four countries.”

Jesus specifically warned us that there would be “pestilences” during the time before His return, and I believe in the future we will see even worse pandemics than this one.

In fact, many of the signs that I discussed above will get worse in the days ahead.  Just as birth pains increase in frequency and severity as the time for birth gets closer, we should expect many of the signs that Jesus warned about to increase in frequency and severity as well.

But even in the midst of all the chaos that is coming, God will be moving, and I believe that the greatest revival in all of human history is still ahead of us.

The Huge Magnitude 6.5 Earthquake That Just Hit Idaho Continues Alarming Trend Of Western Quakes

Why has the western United States suddenly been shaking so violently over the past several weeks?  On Tuesday, the constant barrage of headlines about the coronavirus pandemic was interrupted by an enormous earthquake that hit central Idaho.  Of course Idaho is not exactly known for earthquakes, and so this was quite a surprise.  In fact, the largest quake in Idaho history was the magnitude 6.9 Borah Peak earthquake in 1983.  So when a magnitude 6.5 earthquake stuck not too far from Boise on Tuesday, it really stunned a whole lot of people.  And according to the Spokesman-Review, this quake could be felt as far away as Calgary

An earthquake hit southern Idaho on Tuesday afternoon, with shakes felt as far as Calgary, Canada, Boise and Spokane.

The United States Geological Survey measured a 6.5-magnitude earthquake at a depth of 10 miles just before 5 p.m. The center of the quake took place about 45 miles west of Challis, Idaho.

This is an event that those living up in the Northwest will remember for a long time to come.  There was a tremendous amount of shaking all over the region, and according to at least one report some people actually “ran outside yelling”…

An entry in Volcano Discovery said: “Sustained moderate shaking for several minutes, Rumbling sound heard, people ran outside yelling. Knickknacks fell off shelf.

“Items suspended from ceiling/beams still slightly swaying 10 minutes later.”

All the way over in Helena, Montana someone described the shaking like being “on a small ship at sea during a storm”, and a restaurant owner in Stanley, Idaho reported that “the water next to me is still vibrating”

Brett Woolley, a restaurant owner in Stanley, said he heard earthquake coming before he felt it.

“I heard the roar, and at first it sounded like the wind but then the roar was tremendous,” Woolley said about 10 minutes after the earthquake. “The whole house was rattling, and I started to panic. I’m sitting here perfectly still and the water next to me is still vibrating.”

The epicenter of this earthquake was approximately 78 miles from Boise and approximately 330 miles from Yellowstone.

Needless to say, any major seismic event anywhere near Yellowstone is a cause for concern.

And of course this quake comes less than two weeks after a magnitude 5.7 earthquake hit near Salt Lake City on March 18th

An earthquake struck near Salt Lake City Wednesday morning, shutting down a major air traffic hub, damaging a spire atop a temple and frightening millions of people already on edge from the coronavirus pandemic.

Though there were no reports of injuries and no damage was immediately reported in areas along the Utah-Idaho border, there was damage scattered in the Salt Lake City area — with the earthquake showering bricks onto sidewalks and releasing a chemical plume outside the city.

In fact, that quake caused so much shaking that it actually knocked the trumpet out of the grasp of the statue of the angel Moroni

The 5.7-magnitude earthquake that shook Utah Wednesday morning also dislodged a symbolic part of Salt Lake City’s iconic Mormon temple: the trumpet of an angel statue atop its highest spire.

The temple is the spiritual focal point for the 16 million members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Following that dramatic seismic event, there have been hundreds of aftershocks.

And remember, this is not a part of the country that is known for lots of quakes.

According to the University of Utah Seismograph Stations, there had already been 658 aftershocks from that event as of Monday morning

More than 600 earthquakes have hit across Utah and surrounding areas after a 5.7-magnitude quake struck near Salt Lake City about two weeks ago, according to University of Utah Seismograph Stations.

As of Monday morning, the University of Utah Seismograph Stations, or UUSS, recorded 658 earthquakes as part of a series of aftershocks.

Of course there will be plenty of aftershocks following the quake that just hit Idaho as well.

As I write this article, there have already been five aftershocks greater than magnitude 3.0 that have hit the region.  By the time you read this article, that number may be substantially higher.

With all of this shaking going on in Idaho and Utah, many on the west coast may be wondering if they are next.

According to CalTech, there have been more than 1,100 earthquakes in California and Nevada over the last 7 days.  A couple of magnitude 5 quakes struck off the coast of northern California during March, and that certainly rattled some nerves, but everyone understands that something far, far larger is eventually coming.

For years, scientists have been telling us that “the Big One” is way overdue and that we are not prepared for it.

And for years I have been warning people about what will eventually happen if they remain on the California coastline.

We live at a time when everything that can be shaken will be shaken.  The crust of our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and this latest earthquake in Idaho is yet another example.

In Luke 21:11, Jesus told us the following about what things would be like in the last days…

And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

You may have noticed that a “pestilence” is rapidly spreading across the face of the globe right now.

And at the same time, enormous earthquakes keep popping off like firecrackers with frightening regularity.

Unfortunately, most Americans don’t understand the bigger picture, and what we have experienced so far is just the beginning…
