Adam that is completely true scary fact if they dont change their ways and repent life as we all know out will be over America will be destroyed and devoured ....that is where we are heading.


Adam's comment on 2020-10-23 10:01:19:

I agree. I think many Americans prefer lies over truth. When offered facts and data that show the truth they don't seem interested. What they want to be true has become their worldview and is their religion. This is described in Romans 1:25.

America is on the path to destruction, wake up Americans for the beginning of the end started into full prophecy 9/11 !! Read your Bibles be assured America will be devoured by her enemies with an open mouth.

Read and line up old scriptures with today, as we say we were grafted in ...we were and fall shall be the same. Turn back to the Lord Jesus Christ ! There is always hope !

Drew, are you of the Bahai faith? What is your purpose of posting this extract ? It doesn't appear to contribute anything for us to contemplate & respond to.

And the sheep follow him: for they know His voice (John 10:4).

And other sheep I have, which are not of this folds: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd (John 10:16).

Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

In His Service.

Sam Khan approached the Bab: 'I profess the Christian Faith and entertain no ill will against you. If your Cause be the Cause of truth, enable me to free myself from the obligation to shed your blood.' To this the Bb replied: 'Follow your instructions, and if your intention be sincere, the Almighty is surely able to relieve you from your perplexity.'

The Bb and His disciple were suspended by ropes from a nail in the wall, the head of Mirza Muhammad-'Ali resting on the breast of the Bb. Seven hundred and fifty soldiers were positioned in three files. Roofs of the buildings around teemed with spectators.

Each row of soldiers fired in turn. The smoke from so many rifles clouded the scene. When it lifted the Bb was not there. Only His disciple could be seen, standing under the nail in the wall, smiling and unconcerned. Bullets had only severed the ropes with which they were suspended. Cries rang out from the onlookers: 'The Siyyid-i-Bb has gone from our sight!'

A frantic search followed. The Bb was found, sitting in the same room where He had been lodged the night before, in conversation with His amanuensis. That conversation had been interrupted earlier in the day. Now it was finished and He told the farrash-bashi to carry out his duty. But the farrash-bashi was terror-stricken and ran away, nor did he ever return to his post. Sam Khan, for his part, told his superiors that he had carried out the task given to him; he would not attempt it a second time. So Aqa Jan Khan-i-Khamsih and his Nasiri regiment replaced the Armenians, and the Bb and His disciple were suspended once again at the same spot. The Nasiri regiment fired. The bodies of the Bb and His disciple were shattered, and their flesh was united.

People With Hardened Hearts Against the Gospel's comment on 2020-08-24 22:08:13:

Ephesians 4:18 - Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

Matthew 13:14-15 - And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall NOT PERCEIVE.

Proverbs 28:13-14 - He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them, shall have mercy.

Hebrews 3:8 - Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

Mark 8:17 - And when Jesus knew [it], he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?

Exodus 9:12 - And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.

Exodus 7:3 - And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.

Jeremiah 17:9 - The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Hebrews 4:12 - For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

John 12:48 - He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Mishael : It takes Spiritual Warfare to free a person to hear Gods Word. See sermons on YouTube, about that. See Ephesians 6. Don't let the devil scare you. He knows Jesus stripped him of his authority to steal souls. Watch some Charles Capps videos too so you will understand your authority through the Blood of Jesus.

Praying to the Lord of the Harvest's comment on 2020-08-24 03:54:18:

While the Holy Spirit is still here, we should pray often to the Lord of the Harvest; to send workers into the Harvest. Jesus got off alone frequently to pray alone. That's where you receive your power: on your knees.

Don't leave home without it. In street ministry it's very hard to spend time talking to someone if the Holy Spirit has not been drawing that person to receive Jesus as Savior and Lord. He can arrange a Divine appointment; but we are the feet, the hands, the compassion who participates in that appointment.

Prayer and intercession are necessary. A life is being touched by our Savior. He prays 24/7, all over the world, every day.

If you hit a goat on its head, it will try to head butt you back. I think the woman who went to the well to draw water is a good example of witnessing. The Holy Spirit had given a word of knowledge about that woman's life. Because of her joy, her whole village got saved too! And... they were Gentiles!

Jesus is a perfect example of how prayer and partnering with the Holy Spirit, bears abundant harvest. I set myself to learn HOW does Jesus win the lost, so successfully? And this is what works.


Jerry Lewallen's comment on 2020-08-23 23:22:34:

The Word Of God Clearly Tells That In The Last Days I will Pour Out My Spirit On All Flesh.

To Reach The People Whose Mind Are Seared And Unable To Receive The Word Of The Lord And His Plan Of Salvation. The Only Hope Is For This Outpouring To Restore Their Minds To Receive The Lord.

The Word Of God Clearly Tells Us That No Man Knows The Day Or Hour But My Father Which Is In Heaven

Our Job Is To Be About My Fathers Business.

We Must Work To Win The Lost

We Have To BE Baptised In The Holy Spirit To Receive The Power We Need In The Last Days.

We Cant Have A Form Of Godliness But Denying The Power Thereof.

We Can Not Rely On Signs And Wonders.

Even In America God Has A Remnant .

Psalms 91 Clearly Tells Us That God Will Keep And Provide For His People.

Lisa Brown's comment on 2015-06-03 11:17:28:

This verse absolutely holds a warning to not just ancient Irael, but present-day America! We were established on God and have rejected him. His hedge of protection has been removed from our borders and we are ignoring His warnings. Our responses continue to be defiance and arrogance. We talk of what WE will do for ourselves, without including Him. Things are going to get very bad here and I 'm afraid it still won 't be enough for us to wake up and bring God back into our nation, our families, our schools, our daily lives, our hearts...


Arlen's comment on 2014-04-29 09:49:35:

We will keep neglecting the calamities and keep ignoring the presence of God in our culture. Ultimately leading to the second coming of Christ.


morgan's comment on 2013-02-13 08:45:16:

Is there in this verse a revelation for America for the future?
