The Tribulation and the Future of America!

The tribulation brings on images of suffering, death, and the "end of the world." The tribulation has been discussed for two thousand years now and many ideas and concepts abound.

The subject of the tribulation and fall of America is NOT a pleasant one, but it is one that we NEED to be aware of, even if for no other reason, than to offer hope when this country DOES experience the war and captivity soon to occur.

I love this country as much as anyone does. It is a remarkable, beautiful and powerful country, or at least it WAS. Of course, there is still much of all of that, but there is a definite loss being experienced here, and if you are honest with yourself, you will admit this.

The details of the how's and why's pertaining to America and the rest of the world is discussed elsewhere. What I want to sketch out for you is the essential series of events that will happen, and probably in the not too distant future.

America has been the greatest nation the world has ever known. The richest, most powerful collection of people and purpose. America had a "vision" in the past, and that vision is being dissolved by various forces that seek to weaken our country from within. That is very evident these days. Americans have grown "fat and lazy." Most of us are enclosed in our own little world and we don't care that our government is corrupt. Just consider the Clinton administration and actions for example. A majority of the American public couldn't care less that it occurred. Most Americans don't care much about anything except what affects their wallets and their happiness. As long as that isn't affected, they don't care what is happening in the country or world. We have become apathetic, withdrawn and blind to what is taking place all around them. It is a blindness that is caused by being unthankful, uninvolved, greedy and decadent, and it will allow most to experience the fall of our country.

In order to understand prophecy regarding America, you need to understand where America is discussed in the bible. The greatest nation the Earth has ever seen would certainly be mentioned in the bible, yet most are unaware of where and why.

If you do a study of scriptures, and obtain documentation from a number of excellent books on the subject, you will come to see the controversial truth that America is part of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel. God made promises to Abraham that didn't come to fruition until about 1800. These promises of national greatness and massive physical blessings to Israelite people have never been seen until the western nations of the world came on the scene.

Please keep in mind that all Jews are Israel, but not all Israel are Jews...

Judg 20:18 And the children of Israel arose, and went up to the house of God, and asked counsel of God, and said, Which of us shall go up first to the battle against the children of Benjamin? And the LORD said, Judah (Tribe of Judah-Jews) shall go up first.

1 Sam 11:8 And when he numbered them in Bezek, the children of Israel were three hundred thousand, and the men of Judah thirty thousand.

Notice that "Israel" is mentioned as separate FROM Judah. There are 12 Tribes of Israel, and Judah is only ONE tribe of Israel. What do you think happened to the other 11 tribes? Disappeared from history and no longer exist is what most believe, however...

Rev 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Here we have a prophecy of the very end time during the tribulation period when there will be 144,000 people of the very tribes most believe no longer exist... the 12 tribes of Israel, one of which is Judah, or the Jews. This obviously means these "tribes" exist somewhere right now and are made up of a people descended from the ancient 12 tribes. Knowing who these people are, and how God warns these people who have been the recipients of great blessings, is paramount in understand what God expects of the United States, Britain, and other western "Israelitish" nations.

Now, to continue... Most people in this country will be shocked by the events to take place. The exact scenario of how this will take place is unclear right now, but this much is PLAIN. America will become a slave country to powers that will destroy our way of life. Through whatever means it is, America will be subject to other (one or more) countries and powers that will rule us forcefully, and will destroy many of our cities. Many of us will go into captivity, and many will die because of this. It is sad that most of those who experience this could have made a change had they taken the time and responsibility to be TRUE Americans, and more importantly, true to God and His word.

Ezek 7:19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumbling block of their iniquity.

Ezek 5:4 Then take of them again, and cast them into the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire; for thereof shall a fire come forth into all the house of Israel. 5 Thus says the Lord GOD; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her.

Vs. 5 focuses on the City Jerusalem, but the whole scripture is duel and prophetic in nature. These events have not taken place as yet.

6 And she (The whole House of Israel - all tribes on Earth today - see vs. 4) hath changed my judgments into wickedness more than the nations, and my statutes more than the countries that are round about her: for they have refused my judgments and my statutes, they have not walked in them.
7 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; Because you multiplied more than the nations that are round about you, and have not walked in my statutes, neither have kept my judgments, neither have done according to the judgments of the nations that are round about you;
8 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, am against you, and will execute judgments in the midst of you in the sight of the nations.
9 And I will do in you that which I have not done, and whereto I will not do any more the like, because of all thine abominations.
10 Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of you, and the sons shall eat their fathers; and I will execute judgments in you, and the whole remnant of you will I scatter into all the winds.
11 Wherefore, as I live, says the Lord GOD; Surely, because you hast defiled my sanctuary with all your detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish you; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity.
12 A third part of you shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of you: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about you and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.
13 Thus shall mine anger be accomplished, and I will cause my fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall know that I the LORD have spoken it in my zeal, when I have accomplished my fury in them.
14 Moreover I will make you waste, and a reproach among the nations that are round about you, in the sight of all that pass by.
15 So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an instruction and an astonishment to the nations that are round about you, when I shall execute judgments in you in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes. I the LORD have spoken it.
16 When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine, which shall be for their destruction, and which I will send to destroy you: and I will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread:
17 So will I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they shall bereave you; and pestilence and blood shall pass through you; and I will bring the sword upon you. I the LORD have spoken it.

Imagine 1/3rd of our population dying from war, another one third 1/3rd dying from famine and disease, and a final 1/3rd going into captivity , with 9/10ths dying in that captivity. Imagine a time similar to WW2 and the German occupation of many countries. Imagine the holocaust as just a taste of what this time will be like because this end time scenario WILL be the worst kind of disaster to ever come upon the earth. Do you think it couldn't happen? This will take place, going so far as to bring the very survival of ANY life on this planet into question.

Jer 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. ("Jacob" is an old name for the father of the 12 tribes, (Gen 30) which was changed to Israel."Gen 32:28 And he said, your name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast you power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.)

Joel 2:2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

Matt 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved (alive): but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

Jer 19:9 (breaking into a prophecy concerning Jerusalem and all her "towns" - see vs. 15) And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness, wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall straiten them.

See also Matthew 24, Luke 13, Mark 21 and Revelation for more details about these events.

This is the time known as "The Great Tribulation." This will be a time that will cause grown people to be paralyzed with fear, families to be broken apart, causing even children to be eaten by adults, even by their own parents. The sad truth is that it is going to take THIS kind of reality to bring a self-righteous, vain, rebellious and proud people to their senses. Mankind responds to force, and it seems little else. God has been warning the people of earth for centuries of what will happen if we continue on the path that leads away from His truth.

NOT the false religious concepts that prevail in this world, but the real truth of who and what God is, and His plan for mankind. The whole purpose for life is to become LIKE God, to be His offspring, His children. We have chosen to go our own way, build our own society and rules, and thus, have to live with the consequences of these choices, TO THE END.

The GOOD news about all this is that God WILL intervene in these events at the right time to STOP the total destruction of life on earth. However, this won't occur before mankind experiences the worst time of all history. This is the time of which we warn you of, RIGHT NOW, RIGHT HERE.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. YOU HAVE THE FREE CHOICE TO PROVE ALL THIS OR IGNORE IT. THE CHOICE IS YOURS.

If you choose to look into the only road to life, study these pages and your Bible. The truth IS there, but you have to WANT it enough to seek it with your whole heart. Don't be afraid of it, don't despise it, don't curse it. Since it IS the ONLY truth, what have you to lose by applying yourself to it?

If you choose to ignore this, PLEASE, remember these words of hope... that the Great God exists, and WILL intervene in YOUR life, whether you live through it to see it in this life, or not. If you find yourself in circumstances beyond comprehension, REMEMBER that there IS A GOD WHO CARES, AND WHO HAS A PLAN THAT INCLUDES YOU AND EVERY PERSON WHO HAS EVER LIVED.

Don't allow any experience, or man, to take this hope away from you. It is real, and WILL occur. Those are the simple facts. You now have a choice to make. Look back on this moment with peace and contentment, rather than extreme regret if you find yourself in the middle of hell on earth. NO, you WON'T be lost forever, OR roast in "hell" forever. You just have to choose NOW between God's way of life NOW, or God's way of life AFTER the tribulation.

The whole world will be caught by surprise by these events. It won't be something that you will be blatantly obvious, although it is occurring if you know where to look NOW. It will happen suddenly, without warning, and with extreme fury and hate.

Is this just a ploy to scare you into action just to save your life? NO! Fear isn't the motive. Besides, fear alone WON'T save you OR motivate you to seek the truth. It is just a reminder of reality and the affects of wrong choices. Life will go on as usual, until that time arrives...

Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man... (continue reading this scripture)

THEN, it will be too late to escape it, and to be protected by the only power in the universe that CAN protect you.

Stop and look around, listen to the world news, watch what is taking place and where it is leading. Educate yourself on what the Bible tells us about the end time. Consider our society and its morals. Consider the financial house of cards so many have their entire financial lives wrapped up in. Consider America's world standing and how many countries despise us and even hate us. Consider Europe's slow break with the US. There is SO much taking place right under America's nose yet she is blissfully unconscious to it all.

The best example I can refer to is the first movie of "The Matrix." In this movie, human life was a computer generated cyberworld in which human beings were being fed their lives and kept happy, all-the-while they were oblivious to the fact that they were in incubators, being used by the powers-that-be for their own ends. Most Americans are in that same situation of being ignorant and unconscious of the world around them and the truth that is unfolding. Only those who wake out of this blindness will be able to do anything to prepare themselves and their families. The sad thing is, most won't do anything!

Ezek 7:19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumbling block of their iniquity.

There will come a time when even finances and wealth will be useless and no help to anyone. The ONLY help in the Universe will be the power of God and a relationship with Him...

Rev 12:14 And to the woman (Church - group of God's people) were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, (3 and a half year tribulation time) from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Some of God's people (the wise virgins) will be protected and some will have ignored their relationship with the true God and have to make up for it in the tribulation. The whole scenario describing these events is almost an exact duplicate of God's deliverance of ancient Israel from Pharaoh and how God protected them using the Earth.

Suffice it to say for now that God expects us to be watching world events and to be "about our Father's business... that of obedience to His laws and complying to His training. without that, we will NOT see His kingdom.
