The prophecies of Babylon: Type and shadow of America?
We have a government who is humiliating air passengers by making them go naked before strangers or face a government groping. A dear friend of mine writes, "I had two times in the last week their new "very intrusive" pat down. I am insisting for the future in a private room procedure with a second officer. They also now need to fill out in my presence some new paperwork. When the 15 minute ordeal was completed I asked them to tell their supervisor that as a combat-disabled veteran I am incensed that I would be subjected to this treatment. I was told by the screener, "80% of terrorists today are home-grown and are angry people," so I presume this means the Islamist terrorists are absolved of guilt because they are "angry." What is it all coming to?"
We have become such a tolerant society that we allow an aggressive and violent minority dictate the actions of the majority. Oh how Mahmaud Ahmadinejad, Osama bin Laden and the folks over at Hamas, Hizbollah, the Palestinian Authority, and the rest of the gang at al Qaeda must be laughing themselves asleep at night. Here they have the mightiest country in the world mandating something that they, themselves, would never allow. Something they would fight to the death to stop--the mass humiliation of their people. They have government employees groping American citizens.
Please do not take offense, because none is intended. But I believe that this has happened because American citizens have tolerated evil in this country in so many ways. The obvious is the massive legal killing of the pre-born; the embracing of the abomination of homosexuality; and the attempt to remove any mention of God from the public square. There are other offenses, including: the falling away of the church to bad doctrine that promotes self indulgence rather than glorifying God; the attitude that if it doesn't directly affect me, I do nothing about it; the love of one's self over the caring for the greater good. In short, we as a nation have bought in to the humanist way. And we are in it deep.
In Jeremiah Chapter 51:51-52 The LORD speaks of Babylon similar to what the United States has become. "Remember the LORD afar off, and let Jerusalem come into your mind. We are confounded, because we have heard reproach; shame has covered our faces: for strangers have come into the sanctuaries of the LORD's house. Wherefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will do judgment upon her graven images: and through all her land the wounded shall groan." We are a nation that was dedicated by our Fathers in covenant to God. And we have strayed far from the LORD's righteousness. Our nakedness is being exposed as the mockers celebrate. We as a people need a change of heart.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
