Listen to today’s broadcast:
Fortress of Faith has been broadcasting for more than three years. Our message has been pretty much the same. When you boil it all down, we are in trouble as a nation. We are in trouble because we have a spiritual problem. We have become a nation that is proud and arrogant. Like Britain, we thought we were big enough that we could do anything we wanted and God would not judge us.
Because I grew up in Britain, and was a missionary there for 17 years, I often refer to the errors Britain made. We are making the same errors here. Britain has become spiritually dead. Less than 2% of Britains go to any kind of church. Britain didn’t used to be this way, it used to be a Goad-fearing nation. There was a time when almost everyone went to church and many of them feared God. Today seven out of ten people will tell you they are atheist or agnostic. Many of those who are religious are Muslims. It is a nation, like many other European nations, that is soon to be lost to Islam.
I fear what God is going to do to this country and the rest of North America because of our sins. Here is a Bible passage that many of you are familiar with but never thought it would apply to us in North America. As you read it, think about it. Why wouldn’t it apply to us? Why wouldn’t God judge this nation in this way?
Proverbs 1:22-30 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
What makes those of us in North America think that God will not come to a point where He will have enough of our rejection of Him? I fear that one day He will laugh at our calamity and then we will call out to Him but we won’t find Him. We need to wake up.
You may say that our sin is not that great. You are foolish to think that. Look at all of the unborn babies that we murder. Proverbs 6:16-19 tells us there are six things God hates and the seventh is an abomination.
Proverbs 6:16-19 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Yo will notice that the third thing He hates is those who shed innocent blood. Is not the killing of the unborn the shedding of innocent blood? No matter what clinical term you want to give it, abortion is still the taking of a human life. This is called murder.
We could go through a list of our sins, homosexuality and so forth, but I don’t need to, you already know them. I believe judgment is on the horizon. Each day we see more and more things developing with Islam. The most serious to date is the growing of this new caliphate with ISIS. Look at the mishandling of these issues by our government. The mistakes our government on these issues would be laughable if it were not so serious. The reason for these mistakes is the willful blindness of our government officials. The result of this, if it continues, will be the death of our nation as we know it.
There are various things that can be blamed for our present situation, such as political correctness. The real reason is that we have a spiritual problem. Our problem is our rebellion against God. I believe God is allowing the growth of an enemy that has the strength to destroy our country, not so much from without, but from within.
Our constitution talks about enemies, foreign and domestic. The Founding Fathers had the wisdom to know that an enemy could grow from within. We are now seeing the growth of homegrown terrorists. At this point they are not doing much terrorism in our country, but they are joining forces with the enemy in Iraq and Syria. Mark my word, it won’t be long before they return home and bring the fight to our shores.
Moner Mohammad Abusalha (22yrs), a young man from Vero Beach Fl, born to an American mother and a Palestinian father, got involved in Islam. It is not radical Islam, it is scriptural Islam. He went to Syria and fought with the rebels. He joined Al Nusra Front which is an enemy of both Assad and ISIS. He slipped back into the US and lived on Florida for a number of Months. He learned the the FBI was after him so he returned to Syria, and in May of this year he died as a “martyr” by detonating a truckload of explosives in an effort to kill Syrian troops. Before blowing himself up he said “We are coming for you” and burned passport.
The news is full of reports about Douglas McCain, 33, who died in a Syrian battle between Islamic State group and the rival al-Nusra. He was an aspiring rapper and basketball fan from California who converted from “Christianity” to Islam about a decade ago. It is interesting how our government is handling this. It did not report that this American was fighting for ISIS. I find it a bit ironic that these two men joined Islamist groups that were enemies of each other.
There are now reports that another American, Abdirahmaan Muhumed, of Minneapolis who joined ISIS and been killed. He is a 29-year-old Somali-American and is the father of 9.
The US state department estimates there are about 12,000 foreign fighters from at least 50 countries in Syria. They estimate that 3,000 of them have European Passports. This means that no visa needed to come to America. Think of that, 3,000 people, bent on jihad in the service of Allah, with no restrictions to their entering our country.
It is suspected that 140, and maybe as many as 300, of them are Americans. We are producing enemies within our own country. These are building blocks for the destruction of America. Do we fully understand that there is no place for America in end-time prophecy. Those who do say they find us in prophecy have to stretch the Scriptures to do so.
Could a world power like America not be mentioned if it existed at the time of the end? What happens to America? Could it be that our sin has become so great that God unleashes His wrath upon us and allows an enemy destroy us from within?
Here are some other homegrown terrorists:
Carlos Bledsoe – Memphis, TN –
He was a Baptist when he started college, and while there, he converted to Islam. He went to Yemen and came back to America. In June 1, 2009 he shot 2 soldiers at the Army Recruiting Office in Little Rock.
Major Nidal Malik Hasan – Fort Hood Shooting
In November 5, 2009 he fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others. He cried out “Allah Akbar” while he did this. This administration has refused to call this terrorism. They insist on calling it workplace violence.
Then look at our southern Border. It is as open to anyone who wants to cross. We reported on this in a previous article. People are coming in with military type patches on their clothing. Some of these articles have been discarded and found by border agents. They have Hezbollah symbols and one of them has a plane flying into one of the towers in New York City. One of them has the Shahid, or the martyr’s call, Law enforcement officials across the Southwest are reporting a rise in imprisoned gang members with Farsi tattoos. Farsi is the language of Iran.
In 2009, Michael Braun, former Chief of Operations for the Drug Enforcement Agency, said that Hezbollah uses “the same criminal weapons smugglers, document traffickers and transportation experts as the drug cartels.”
In April 2010, an individual named Jamal Yousef was apprehended in New York City. During interrogation, he admitted to stealing weapons from Iraq for Hezbollah. Yousef alone knew of a Hezbollah stockpile in Mexico that included 100 M-16 assault rifles, 100 AR-15 rifles, 2500 hand grenades, C4 explosives and anti-tank weapons.
An unnamed senior Mexican military officer confirmed to then-Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) that Hezbollah was giving explosives training to members of Mexican drug cartels……..Shortly thereafter, a drug cartel detonated a car bomb for the first time and killed 4 people in Ciudad Juarez. It was described as having “Hezbollah-like sophistication” and a Tucson Police Department reported later that there is a “strong suspicion” that Hezbollah had traded its expertise.
The Wall Street Journal says that Hezbollah is “forging ideologically promiscuous ties with Colombia’s right-wing paramilitary groups and communist guerrillas and digging tunnels for drug cartels on the Mexican-American border—
In 2011 – Roger Noriega, former Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, could not be clearer in his urgent warnings:
“If our government and responsible partners in Latin America fail to act, I believe there will be an attack on U.S. personnel, installations or interests in the Americas as soon as Hezbollah operatives believe that they are capable of such an operation without implicating their Iranian sponsors in the crime.”
With all of this, what are our border agents doing? They are busy babysitting with children.
I hope you can see the danger. God can bring judgment on America. I believe it has already started. The Bible says that if we repent and return to God, He can heal our land
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
My prayer for America is that we turn back to God. I pray also that it is not too late.
