Beyond The Point Of No Return
"For Jerusalem stumbled, and Judah is fallen, because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory." Isaiah 3:8 How long can a people "provoke" the Lord? The Lord gives them time to repent, and as with ancient Israel, he sends many warnings before judgment finally comes. It is not the will of God to pour out his judgment upon any people, his will is always to draw people to repentance. But when they defiantly refuse again and again, the judgment will finally come when he sees that there is no more space for repentance, when they have hardened their hearts and are deaf to his warnings. And so it is with America. They do not hide their shame, rather they glory in it. vs 9: "The look on their countenance witnesses against them, and they declare their sin as Sodom; THEY DO NOT HIDE IT, woe to their soul! For they have brought evil upon themselves. "Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No! They were not at all ashamed; Nor did they know how to blush." Jeremiah 6:15 Has America gone beyond the point of no return? There's very little doubt as to the answer to that. The perversions and sins continue and only grow worse, assaulting the eyes daily with their dark sins. In ancient Israel, people sacrificed babies to the god Molech. In America, babies are sacrificed to the god of convenience, while they demand their "rights." More than seventy million little boys and little girls have been massacred in recent years. Most people know what went on in Sodom, and the ashes of Sodom remain to this day. America is at that point, shamelessly forcing their sin on society and even upon the children in their elementary schools, with society declaring that all must accept the great sin of this people. When finally judgment falls, it will be as in the days of Noah ...unexpected and final. They will perish. We see the signs of the impending one-world global government taking shape right before our eyes. We see the religions of the world coming together to form the prophesied global religion with a "pope" leading his people worldwide into a religion joined with Islam - just as it was prophesied so long ago in the Bible, the Word of God, concerning the last generation. Jesus told us what to watch for, and all the signs he mentioned are happening right now, in our face. There is no question that we are in the "last days." The wars, rumors of war, earthquakes, famines, and pestilence are all here concurrently. (And that's the definitive point, "concurrently.") "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows." Matthew 24:7-8 In addition, society has descended into gross immorality as was prophesied for "the last days." "But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power." 2 Timothy 3:1-5 That pretty accurately describes this generation as none other. A generation ago we could not have imagined how terrible things would get, the horrors of “drag queens” parading in front of our children. Church ministers married to same-sex partners. One other factor presently before our eyes is the nations prophesied to be allied against Israel "in the last days," as shown in Ezekiel 38. A generation ago Russia was not allied with Iran and Turkey was not allied with either, but incredibly they are now lined up together just as foretold. These are the three main nations that will be destroyed by God himself when they come against Israel. And then the Scriptures go on to say that the last days would be "As it was in the days of Noah..." Events on the earth are identical to what was going on in the days of Noah. The scariest part is that the judgment fell so suddenly, so finally, so unexpectedly - even though Noah had warned the people throughout the years it took him to build the ark. They all laughed him to scorn. And ...they all perished, with the exception of Noah's family. Anyone who knows the Word of God knows where we are on the Biblical timeline. Nothing of all the signs mentioned is missing. It's all here. Right before our eyes. Men warn, and people laugh them to scorn. Oh heed the words of Jesus Christ: "...unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” Luke 13:5 Life here is short. Eternity is forever. There is nothing worth the risk of eternal loss. As terrible judgment looms, give it up folks, it's not worth it. Repent. Turn to the Lord and seal your eternal fate with him now. Don't wait.
