Can’t See the Forest for the Trees - By Donna Wasson - http://www.raptureready.com/soap2/wasson156.html
Satan and his peons must be dancing a jig! As we’ve all heard ad nauseum, the imperial Supreme Court of the United States, ruled that same-sex marriage is legal and a constitutional right. I’m pretty sure the Founding Fathers would vehemently disagree with their decision on many counts, one of which is that the PEOPLE have voted time and time again against destroying the foundation of civilization. But, who the heck cares what the people want? SCOTUS has spoken, and overridden the will of the citizens. Woe to them!
Naturally, the usurping, treasonous Occupant of the White House nearly wet himself with glee, tweeting how all citizens are now ‘a little more equal,’ which is a completely nonsensical statement, but we know what he meant. Then, to rub this unwanted ruling in the face of every Christian in the nation, he had the unmitigated gall to have the People’s House—the White House, lit up with rainbow colors in celebration, as was Niagara Falls and Cinderella’s Castle in Disneyland. I know where I’m not going on vacation now!
The same night this decision was announced, 500+ sodomite revelers at the Ba-Xian Water Park in New Taipei City, Taiwan, were holding a huge celebration party and dance in honor of the ruling in America. This event was sponsored by NewUrbanMale.com, an openly gay male modeling organization with a cute little cartoon picture of a sperm as their logo.
Things were going well and everyone was having a grand time, until rainbow-colored metallic glitter was sprayed over the crowd like a cloud. Unbeknownst to the happy homosexuals, this material is highly flammable, and was somehow ignited. The crowd, quite simply, went up in flames, burning them alive. There were 500+ victims, some of whom were burned over 80% of their bodies. As of this writing, no deaths were reported. The video of this ghastly event is available on YouTube and is extremely disturbing, to say the least.
This tragedy was widely reported, but the news media refused to identify this party for what it was; an openly homosexual event. I’m certain they don’t want to consider the possibility perhaps God might be fed up with the world’s in-your-face sodomite shenanigans, and that was just a taste of the judgment to come.
It was an eventful day for the Occupant. That afternoon, he delivered the eulogy for Clementa Pinckney, the Pastor of Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. As usual, when he is up in front of a group of blacks, he couldn’t resist putting on his best southern-preacher-voice, bouncing on the balls of his feet like he was standing on a hot plate.
After admitting he really didn’t know the Reverend very well, he spent little time remembering the man, but concentrated instead on ancient black American history, Jim Crow, the civil rights struggle, black men making up the majority of the prison population, gun violence and even managed to squeeze in condemnation of the Confederate Flag, as some in the audience shouted ‘amen.’
Then, as his pièce de résistance, he slowly began to croon the hymn Amazing Grace, which brought his adoring myrmidon acolytes to their feet, singing and swaying along with scattered applause. He was a hit! However, I have to wonder if Rev. Pinckney would have appreciated being eulogized by a man who is an outspoken proponent of abortion, homosexuality, and same sex marriage; one who’s an admitted murderer of untold thousands of innocent men, women and children in drone strikes; who sells weapons to those who wish death to Americans, and who has done absolutely NOTHING for the blacks in this country.
From the attitude of the family members whose innocent loved ones were wickedly massacred by some snot-nosed, ignorant geek with a gun, I’m thinking the good Reverend might not have been very impressed by the Occupant. Why? Because the jaw-dropping way these grieving people spoke to the killer, Dylann Roof, says volumes about what kind of teaching Rev. Pinckney gave his parishioners; teaching diametrically opposed to that of Obama’s spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright.
Despite the best efforts of the race-baiters, the city of Charleston reacted to this tragedy with a rare display of elegance and class. There were no riots. No calls for violence or revenge. There was an open display of city-wide grief which did not divide the citizens, but brought them together, black and white, hand in hand, to cry and hold each other. Sorry Al Sharpton but you and your worthless pal, Jesse Jackson, might need to look for a legitimate job, ‘cause folks are sick of listening to your divisive colonic contents!
During Dylann Roof’s first court appearance on June 19, 2015, Judge James Gosnell asked if any of the victim’s relatives wanted to comment. What followed, as Roof stood expressionless and handcuffed on a video monitor, was nothing less than extraordinary.
The daughter of 70-year-old Ethel Lance said through tears, “I forgive you. You took something very precious from me and I will never talk to her ever again. I will never be able to hold her again. But I forgive you. And have mercy on your soul.”
Anthony Thompson, son of Myra Thompson told Roof “I forgive you. But we would like you to take this opportunity to repent. Repent, confess, give your life to the one who matters most: Christ. So that he can change it, can change your ways no matter what happened to you and you’ll be OK. Do that and you’ll be better off than what you are right now.”
The most poignant statement was made by Alana Simmons, granddaughter of Daniel Simmons, Sr. Alana told the judge and Roof “Although my grandfather and the other victims died at the hands of hate, this is proof--everyone’s plea for your soul is proof that they lived and loved, and their legacies will live and love. So hate won’t win, and I just want to thank the court for making sure that hate doesn’t win.”
I started this article talking about the decision to approve same-sex marriage by our out-of-control Supreme Court who has decided that they are more qualified than the Creator of the universe to define Holy Matrimony. I think everyone who has the Holy Spirit living within them knows that this was the final nail in America’s coffin; the final straw that broke the camel’s back in terms of inviting the wrath of God.
Since the Occupant was first elected, rising from obscurity to grasp the most powerful position on the planet, we have watched our beloved America shredded and decimated politically, economically, culturally, morally, militarily, and spiritually. That forked-tongue satanic puppet has accomplished precisely what The Powers That Be set him in office directed; he has destroyed what took over 200 years to build. He has “fundamentally transformed the United States of America.”
With the heartbreaking decline we’ve witnessed, along with the icing on the proverbial cake—sodomite ‘marriage,’ it would be very easy to allow rank bitterness and hatred toward the wicked to take a firm grip in our hearts. After all, what’s not to hate? Shouldn’t we despise evil?
I was discussing all these things with my very perturbed 16-year-old son, who is as disgusted with these events as I am, when the Lord quietly reminded me that I couldn’t see the forest for the trees. It took me a moment to understand, but then it hit me. What the heck am I getting angry about anyway? Why all the angst? You’d think America was my home!
Au contraire, mon ami! It is not. Not by a long shot! Let me re-introduce you to the forest.
We know from the Bible that the antichrist will head a world government, most likely known as the New World Order, with one political system, one monetary system and one world-wide religion officiated by the False Prophet, whom I believe is Pope Francis.
One problem. America is in the way. The New World Order cannot rise if a free, sovereign, superpower like America exists because the Globalists know we will fight to preserve our way of life. They want to subjugate us—not fight us. So this country must fall, and once the serious chaos begins to hit the fan, hundreds of thousands will be more than happy to go to the FEMA camps with the promise of getting food, water, showers, shelter and a clean bed.
However, unbeknownst to the Globalist elite, Almighty God has plans too and I do believe He’ll beat them to the punch because we just gave Him the finger for the last time. He’s had e-n-o-u-g-h. Judgment is coming, and soon! America is finished. Done. Toast.
Mark my words, GREAT destruction is about to fall on this land, from sea to shining sea. The Lord deals with all nations in the same way; He destroys those who turn their back on Him and His statutes. The methods He typically employs are natural disasters, pestilence (disease), war, famine and drought, and no manner of wealth ever makes any difference.
“Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations. 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.” Ezekiel 7:3, 19 (KJV)
God doesn’t change His ways of dealing with sinful nations. Destruction is coming. Count on it.
Now, before you get all worked up, you must remember that God is perfectly just and good in all His ways. Since the United States is officially the new Sodom and Gomorrah, let’s revisit a story in Genesis 18.
Abraham was hanging out in the door of his tent one hot day, when he looked up and saw three men coming towards him. One was the pre-incarnate Jesus along with two angels, all in human form. Abraham invited them to stay for dinner and he laid out quite a spread for them, not realizing at first that he was feeding God.
Once the meal was over, the Lord informed Abraham that the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was so grievous that He was there to check it out and destroy the cities. Abraham gingerly challenged Christ: “And Abraham drew near, and said, ‘Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?’” Genesis 18:23, 25 (KJV)
It was forever established then and there that God will NOT destroy the righteous with the wicked when His hand of judgment falls. That would be completely unfair, and the God we serve is abundant in mercy and justice. So, those who belong to Him will be supernaturally protected when we see judgment fall. And I absolutely believe we’ll see this BEFORE the rapture takes place. It will NOT be part of the Tribulation, but rather a special judgment on America because “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required…” Luke 12:48 (KJV)
Some of you have probably heard preachers say “If God doesn’t judge America, then He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” Believe me…He won’t need to apologize. Judgment is coming.
So, what do we do in the meantime, when society is becoming increasingly unhinged each day? How should we react when the LGBT mafia come at our children, businesses and churches, as you KNOW they’re salivating to do? Of course we should protect ourselves and our families, but what did Christ command? What reaction makes the least sense in this insane world?
Love. Here’s what Jesus said: “Ye have heard that it hath been said, ‘Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy.’ But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven…” Luke 5:43-45 (KJV)
Think about it! Love will drive them crazy. It will confound and confuse them. It will get their attention and plant a seed. Love will be a nuclear bomb going off in their sin-sick soul—a bright explosion of light, exposing them to the hope of salvation in Christ, something they desperately need. It’s the heart of our Father. After all, there but for the grace of God go we!
There’s not much more time on this earth before we’re called home, and the Tribulation begins in earnest. Showing love to those who are wicked does not mean we crawl down into the dark, dank sewage with them. No! It means we extend a hand down to them to help pull them up into the light. If they slap our hands away, pray for them and entrust them to God who will sort it all out in the end.
Stepping back and looking at the bigger picture will ease the anger in your heart. NONE of this matters. America’s demise doesn’t matter; not in the light of our eternal home! Losing friends or family who criticize our refusal to back down from abiding by what the Word says certainly hurts but in the big picture, it doesn’t matter. They will have to answer for their decisions. Being fired from a job for not capitulating to the pressure of ‘celebrating’ someone’s gay marriage does not matter. Seriously. All that matters now is pleasing Jesus.
This world is passing away. Our bodies are aging and decaying. Our houses, cars and careers constantly need upkeep and maintenance. The local, national and international news gets darker every day. All of creation moans and groans for the return of the Lord Jesus. We’re surrounded by filth, sickness, disappointment, poverty, corruption, hatred, violence, lies and death every day.
Why in the world would we want to stay here?! What’s to mourn? What’s to fight for? Nothing, that’s what! Let’s go out with a bang and make the enemy nuts by displaying Christ’s love to each person we meet. Let’s trust our Heavenly Father to protect and provide for us amidst the destruction to come until we’re snatched off this God-forsaking earth. Let’s allow HIM to vindicate us and make all things right and new.
Let’s remember the shining example of those precious, grieving families in Charleston, South Carolina, who effectively shut the mouths of the race-baiters by extending the love of God to the murderer of their loved ones.
We can stop fighting now. Put away your political swords. We cannot turn America around. It’s over. Start rejoicing in the fact that we’re going home very, very soon, so let’s concentrate on taking some folks with us.
At this point, the only thing that matters is LOVE.
