America’s Spiritual Decline

The spirit of Antichrist has been in the world at least since God said the seed of woman would bruise Satan’s head (Gen. 3:15). God’s curse was the beginning of a great earthly struggle between good and evil. In the beginning, it focused on preventing the first coming of Jesus. It is now focused on preventing the Second Coming of Jesus. It will continue until this world is destroyed by fire (Matt. 24:35; II Pet. 3:10).

The Antichrist won’t be revealed until the church is Raptured, but the spirit of Antichrist is already here (II Thess. 2:6, 7; I Jn. 4:3). It is anti-God, anti-Jesus, anti-Truth, anti-Christian, the Apostasy, the falling away, the departure from the faith, the emerging church, liberalism, humanism, globalism, inclusiveness, replacement theology, non-Christian religions and the like.

Among other things, this wicked spirit will lead to perilous times, blasphemy, fierceness and despising those that are good in the last days (II Tim. 3:1-4). It will make the world more dangerous (wars, nuclear weapons, more deadly pestilences etc.). Humanity will become more despicable (ungodly or contemptuous of God). People will become more brutal (behead people, burn people alive, cut babies in two); and society will become more intolerant of those who serve God at the end of the Church Age (persecution).

Instead of a worldwide revival with the church converting the world, the people on planet Earth will move farther away from Jesus until all that will live godly in Christ will suffer persecution (II Thess. 2:3; Rev. 3:16; II Tim. 3:12). Christians all over the Middle East are being persecuted right now and it is a growing problem in the U.S.

Jesus, the Disciples, Paul and many of the early Christians were persecuted. A pastor that I know recently preached on “Preparing for the Coming Persecution.” Rev. Franklin Graham recently said that he is concerned about “persecution in this country” [the U.S.]. He added that, “We’ve already seen many laws that have been passed that restrict our freedom as Christians. I believe it’s going to get worse.”

About two weeks ago there was testimony before a U.S. Senate subcommittee that the U.S. received about seven million immigrants in fiscal 2014. They came from many places, but most were Hispanics and some were Muslims.

God loves all of them. He wants all of them to know that Jesus died for everyone’s sins. He wants all of them to accept Jesus as their Savior and to go to heaven.

But it should be understood that seven million immigrants, plus the multiplied millions more that are expected to arrive in the next 3 to 4 years, are going to impact the already failing spirituality of the U.S.

No one can deny that there are places in the world where the church is growing, but the U.S. is not one of them. Many pastors say that they think the Apostasy has already started in the U.S. They see very little difference between most of their church members and the lost. Apathy and moral failure are already widespread in U.S. churches.

This is the point: The growing persecution and spiritual decline of America is bad enough already, but it is going to get much worse in the future. It is difficult to say how many Muslims are coming into the U.S. when people are saying the number is much higher than our government is letting on. And Pres. Obama has already said he will increase it even more. It is sad to know that Syrian Muslims are being brought in, but Syrian Christians are being refused entry. Bringing non-Christians in and keeping Christians out changes things.

Increasing the population of Muslims is going to mean more mosques; more demands to stop monitoring mosques, more demands to stop profiling Muslims; more demands to bring in extended families of Muslims; more demands for Muslim prayers before Congress, at city council meetings and the like.

It will mean more demands for Sharia Law: more attempts to get rid of the Bible, portray Christians as hate-mongers and extremists, send Christians to sensitivity training, get rid of chaplains in the military and the like; more demands to change school textbooks, lunch menus, etc. and perhaps more terrorist attacks, especially on churches.

Muslims are coming (and being brought) to the U.S. for many reasons, but the primary reason they are coming is to fundamentally transform the U.S. into a Muslim nation.

I have been to Mexico and seen many faithful Hispanic Christians. The vast majority is nominal at best. About 75-80%, say they are Catholic. They say they are Catholic because their parents were Catholic or they believe they were born Catholic. But their Catholic beliefs are far from traditional mainline Christianity. In many cases, their beliefs have been blended with ritualism, magic, voodoo, varied Indian cultural practices and the like.

Several years ago, a missionary took my wife and me to a Roman Catholic Church in Mexico and a voodoo ceremony was being performed in the church. I am not against legalized immigration (and I don’t blame anyone for seeking a better life), but I am saying that letting 25-30 million people with many kinds of strange beliefs come into the U.S. in the next 4 to 5 years (and not letting Christians in) will decrease the percentage of true Christians in the U.S.

Understand that the Bible is not wrong. Every jot and tittle will be fulfilled including what it says about persecution. Understand too, that what Islamic terrorists do in other countries (behead Christians, burn churches, burn people alive, cut babies in two, sell people into slavery) they will also do in the U.S. Their threats to raise the Islamic State flag over the White House and to blow up the White House should be taken seriously.

The spirit of Antichrist is already here and a flood of epic proportions is on the way. It will further weaken the U.S. spiritually and we should be concerned for our Lord, our children, our grandchildren, others and ourselves.

The Horse’s Mouth

Pres. Obama is beginning to receive more than a little well-deserved criticism for his constant fundraising. I am not saying fundraising is wrong. But I am saying that Pres. Obama doesn’t let anything interfere with an expensive trip on Air Force One at taxpayer expense to raise money for his political party; that Pres. Obama has taken approximately 400 trips; that it is not unusual for Pres. Obama to be gone for more than a day and to do something else while he is gone (such as play golf); that Pres. Obama is doing it so much that some are accusing him of neglecting his presidential duties and that there are even rumors that some of his donors are growing weary of being asked to give over and over again.

Pres. Obama is also beginning to receive more than a little well-deserved criticism for not telling the truth. It is obvious that his pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States was not true; that those shovel-ready jobs did not exist; that his administration is not the most transparent administration in history; that many who liked their healthcare plan were not allowed to keep it; that our border with Mexico is not secure, and more. Pres. Obama’s dishonesty is blatant, outrageous and well-known.

Having said that, with war raging in Israel, Syria, Iraq and Libya; an unprecedented crisis on the U.S-Mexican border; a Malaysian airliner shot down over Ukraine (perhaps by Russia); and more; Pres. Obama recently embarked on a three-day, five-stop fundraising trip to the U.S. West Coast. And, on at least one of those five stops, he uttered the absolute truth and if I rightly understand what he said, everyone needs to sit up and take notice. He was talking about some of the problems in the world when he said, “part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people.”

First, Pres. Obama said, “the old order isn’t holding.” This is absolutely true because a strong Christian based U.S. headed up the old world order until Pres. Obama took office. But Pres. Obama reduced America’s nuclear weapons, reduced America’s military, damaged America’s economy, betrayed America’s allies, spread immorality and lied to the point that most of the world no longer respects or trusts Pres. Obama or the U.S. The decline of the U.S. has caused the decline of the old world order.

Second, Pres. Obama said, “we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order.” This is absolutely true because the Rapture hasn’t happened and the Antichrist can’t be revealed until the church is in heaven; all of the ten regions with their Ten Kings (ten leaders) are not fully developed; the negotiations to produce a Middle East peace treaty have collapsed and more. We’re almost there, but not quite.

Third, Pres. Obama said, the new order will be “based on a different set of principles.” This is absolutely true because the New World Order will be a satanic world order not a Christian world order. It will be “against the Christ” (antichrist), spy on, persecute and kill believers. The Golden Rule, Ten Commandments and all other Christian principles will be discarded.

Fourth, Pres. Obama said this different set of principles will be “based on a sense of common humanity.” People will be viewed as citizens of the world not as citizens of a nation and the values of individual religions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam, etc.) will be replaced by a common set of politically correct values, rules and laws that are being determined by the elite.

Fifth, Pres. Obama said this different set of principles will be “based on economies (plural) that work for all peoples.” I have long believed that the world will be divided into ten economic regions (ten trading blocks of nations) that will be transformed into ten political regions patterned after the EU and each one will have their own currency, leader or king, etc. I believe that this must happen before the Antichrist can rise to power and establish a one-world economic system. So the world will be merged in phases or stages: more than 190 nations (economies) will be merged into ten groups of nations (economies) and then the ten will be merged into a one-world government and economic system. Wealth redistribution will be a big issue.

In the 1800’s, someone coined the phrase “straight from the horse’s mouth.” Among other things it means “if you want to know the facts, ask someone that is involved.” What Pres. Obama said about the new order (New World Order or World government) came straight from the horse’s mouth.

The Same Old Playbook

Knowledge of Bible prophecy, Pres. Obama’s actions and a recent article caused me to think about what Pres. Obama meant when he said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Some thought he meant restoring integrity in government, stopping partisan bickering, co-operating with Congress, improving America’s economy, putting Americans back to work and good things like that. But his record shows that he didn’t mean any of those things. I can’t prove it, but I think he meant, “We are five days away from doing whatever it takes to bring America into compliance with the Globalist Agenda.” I think Pres. Obama’s playbook was drawn up by Satan, given to Nimrod at the Tower of Babel, handed down to the Globalist, passed on to Pres. Obama and he is just a pawn in a one-world government scheme.

An excellent article by Daniel Taylor titled Globalist Think Tank: North American Community “Will Be Forged in the Heat of Conflict” ( started me thinking about this. Mr. Taylor wrote about a Globalist meeting in 2002 that was held to discuss the formation of the North American Union. The Globalists who attended believed that the majority of U.S. citizens are opposed to surrendering the sovereignty of the U.S. by merging the U.S. with Canada and Mexico. These Globalists agreed that a playbook (a set of plans, schemes or tactics) was needed to fundamentally transform the U.S. Without an attitude adjustment in the U.S., these Globalists concluded that they would not be successful in creating a North American Union.

A representative of the Council on Foreign Relations (Stephanie Golob) attended the meeting and she indicated that the opposition of U.S. citizens is the “greatest obstacle” to the merger of the U.S. with Canada and Mexico. She didn’t say so, but the U.S. economy was the envy of the world in 2002. The middle class was large, many had good jobs, good pay, good healthcare, good retirement plans, the U.S. military was strong, people enjoyed their freedoms, etc. The vast majority of this middle class didn’t have anything against Canada or Mexico, but they didn’t want to risk losing the good things they had by surrendering U.S. sovereignty in a merger with Canada and Mexico. This probably explains why Golob suggested that the creation of the North American Union will have to come from the top down (by Presidential Directive or Executive Order) instead of by vote of the people. Without Presidential Directives or Executive Orders, these Globalists concluded again that they would not be successful in creating a North American Union.

A third and very insightful thing in Mr. Taylor’s excellent article connects the desired attitude adjustment and the need for Presidential Directives to the current illegal immigration debacle. According to the article, Prof. Darrell Hamamoto of the Univ. of Cal. said, “illegal immigration is about creating a subservient underclass in America.”

Golob’s 2002 statement reveals that Globalists thought the middle class of U.S. citizens was too big, too well off and too independent. Under these conditions America’s affluent middle class could not be controlled, an attitude adjustment was not possible, and Presidential Directives to surrender the sovereignty of the U.S. would be strongly opposed. On the other hand, America’s lower class of citizens was not well off, they depended upon the government for benefits and they could be fundamentally changed and controlled because they would want to keep their benefits coming in.

Thus, illegal immigration is about fundamentally changing attitudes by reducing the size, income, independence and voting power of the uncontrollable middle class; and it is about increasing the size, income (benefits), dependence and voting power of the controllable lower class. It is about weakening the middle class and empowering the lower class to create a new majority in the U.S. to change the way U.S. citizens think and vote. And all of this is essentially an old playbook or blueprint that was drawn up for the purpose of surrendering the sovereignty of the U.S., creating the North American Union and ultimately bringing in a mostly socialist one-world government.

Satan has convinced the Globalists that the middle class is expendable so the Globalists are doing away with middle class jobs, healthcare, freedoms, independence, etc. and Satan has convinced the Globalist that the lower class can be useful so the Globalists are keeping the border open to allow illegals to flood in and change the demographics of the U.S.

Some politicians are talking about sending the illegal immigrants back home. I will be surprised to see that happen because it will go against Satan’s one-world government agenda. Others are talking about building villages to put the illegal immigrants in. That doesn’t surprise me because it falls in line with the Agenda 21 goal of creating tightly controlled communities.

Other schemes in Satan’s same old playbook include reducing the population of the world to 1-2 billion people (through abortion, gay marriage, and several other really devious suggestions); preserving resources for future generations (called global resource efficiency); weakening the U.S. military and hyping climate change to scare citizens into accepting one-world government; and wealth redistribution to weaken the upper and middle classes, and to strengthen the lower class (increase the income of the lowest 40% faster than the national average).

In conclusion, I don’t think the big mess on America’s border with Mexico comes from a playbook drawn up by Pres. Obama. I actually think it comes from that same old playbook that was drawn up by Satan and handed down to the Globalists at the CFR, the State Dept. and all of those who are trying to establish the New World Order. But I have good news for you: God has always known the contents of Satan’s playbook, God plans to deal with it and God’s plan won’t fail.

By the way: The attitude adjustment also includes changing America’s religious beliefs.
