Could This Be America?

I want to share something with you that came to me through a Vision and troubling Dreams.  Believe it or discount it that is your choice.  Consider me a kook that’s okay, but I feel compelled to share it today!

I really don’t know how many people have actually had an open vision where they were awake and aware and saw something as vivid as a movie or T.V. program.  Nor do I know what you think of someone who claims to have had such an experience but I have and it has troubled me for years.  Lately (over the past couple of years) I’ve had several dreams that are similar in nature which also trouble me.  These experiences coupled with the things going on in Washington today cause me to be even more troubled in my spirit as I think about the vision, dreams and current events.

Let me begin with the vision I had about 15 years ago.  It is still as vivid today as it was the day it took place.  I am unable to shake it and cannot forget it.  I was at the church praying and thinking about my life, some of the proposed out-reach efforts of the church and other events around me when suddenly, fully awake and aware, I saw a panoramic scene in full living color that shook me to my foundation.  I saw devastation, bombed out buildings, tanks and troops in the streets and general chaos everywhere.  It looked like scenes from WWII movies.  The insignia on the troops was not something I recognized so I was uncertain as to what I was seeing.  I asked the Lord, “Why are you showing me bombed out Europe of WWII?” What I heard in my spirit was , “Look again.” I looked and still the same question was in my heart only to hear “Look again.” This went on three times and finally I recognized one of the cities – New York City, then Dallas, Houston, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and others.  It was catastrophic and there was utter ruin everywhere. I asked, “What does this mean?” The only response was, “If my people pray and seek my face I will hear from heaven and heal their land.” I sensed that this was a message to the church, a warning of things potentially coming if we as the Body of Christ and America did not wake up and take action.  I attempted to warn others and most were seemingly unimpressed and many summarily dismissed my vision.  Yet, I could not and cannot forget it.  We have never seen this in America.  September 11th is the nearest thing we have seen to this type of catastrophe and far too few even think about that today.  For a brief time the church and the American people came together unified, laying aside their differences and were ready to stand for a common cause and fight a common enemy.  But then the same old political prejudices raised their ugly heads and we moved back into disunity and some have even accused the U.S. Government of masterminding the attack.  Can this be a reality? Can America become Europe of WWII? Can we have martial law and U.N. troops or troops from a conquering nation occupy the streets of our cities? I pray that this never be, but far too many signs indicate it as being possible especially with the direct and massive assault on our constitutional liberties.  We are seeing the almost daily concerted efforts to circumvent and bypass the legislative process and place almost unlimited power in the hands unregulated Czars and the Executive Branch of our government making this frighteningly possible.

The dreams that I had are three, two were identical and the latest had a somewhat different twist.  The first two were scenes in which the front door of my house was broken down in the middle of the night with armed individuals storming through the front door with no explanation as to who they were nor their purpose.  I keep a weapon handy and was able to stop two of the perpetrators before being shot myself and at that  point they identified themselves as DEA agents and after a brief interrogation they informed me that they had the wrong house.  I had just killed two people as I sought to protect my family and my property and had been wounded myself because they failed to

1). Knock on the door and identify themselves   2). Even after they stormed my house failed to identify themselves.

The third dream came a few weeks ago was similar in that not only was the front door broken down but several windows and my back door were stormed simultaneously. Armed soldiers with automatic weapons stormed my house and before I could respond took me into custody informing me that I was under arrest as a threat to the newly formed government of America.  That martial law had been declared and insurgents and enemies of the new government were being apprehended to insure that there would be no insurrection to disrupt the establishment of this new order. I was informed that my military history, years of ministry and recent writings opposing the direction being taken by the current administration categorized me as a danger and I would be transported to a detention facility for further action.  I woke up so I don’t know what that action was to be but can only imagine.  Either promotion to heaven or extreme torture most likely.

Am I being paranoid? Hopefully!  Are we in danger in America of losing our country? There is no question.  Do we need to take action? Yes, the following action:

We need to return to God as individuals, churches and as a nation as never before.

  • We need to become involved in local, city, state and national politics as never before.
  • We need to go to the polls in November and make absolutely sure that we cast a ballot for the constitution and freedom.
  • We need to become vocal and energized, encouraging everyone we know and have any sphere of influence over to vote and do the right thing.
  • We need to demonstrate our faith through our daily lives as a testimony for all to see.
  • Finally, but not least in importance we need to become intercessors for this land.

God heard Israel when they were in Egyptian bondage and delivered them!  There is so much more to the vision and dreams that time and space will not allow me to write but suffice it to say – – I believe it is time for the Church to be the Church and Americans to be true Americans and STAND UP for Right and Freedom!  I may only be one man but I am prepared to STAND IN THE GAP yet I know and am confident that there are multitudes like me in this Great Land.  My simple prayer is – “God Save America!  Protect her from Tyranny!  Guide her to Righteousness!  Lead her to her Divine Destiny!” God has Blessed America and it’s time that we honor those blessings and with one unified voice defend the cause of the defenseless, honor the principles of righteousness and make America a place, once again, where it is truly the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave!


Simply Answer to Complex Problem

Is There Possibly a Simple Answer to the Complex Problem?

I have probably spent far too many hours contemplating the ills of our Society, the evils of Sin and the problem of Self and then again maybe too few. When I look at America from history I see a fledgling group of people who had a common vision and cause. Through their resolve and a willingness to lose everything even die for their purpose, they defeated a superior enemy who was better equipped, better funded and better trained. It wasn’t horsepower, gun-power or manpower that won the American Revolution it was resolve! A common thread ran through virtually everything they did that was their passion for Freedom and Liberty. Their cause had a faith foundation although much could be argued about what each of the founders believed, they believed that man should have the right to worship freely without interference from government. They believed that man should always be taxed fairly and in a representative manner not just at the whim or mandate of the King or whatever despot was in command at the time. They believed that everyone should have the right to pursue their own personal dreams and ambitions achieving success or failure without government interference. They did not believe that the government owed them a dime nor did they owe the government a dime. They were willing to endure a representative tax not a repressive one. It was not paying their fair share that bothered them it was the arbitrary and capricious manner in which their taxes were being levied.

A democratic society begins to crumble when it loses sight of its purpose and reason for existence. Any entity that exists to perpetuate itself and orchestrates laws, rules and regulations in order to achieve that purpose is unnecessary and has forgotten it’s true purpose. When a society reaches the point that it depends upon the government to provide for it, doom is inevitable. A society that wants to be provided for rather than provide is a society destined to live in a state of corruption and cannot long survive as a democracy. It will eventually succumb to tyrannical rule and lose, give up or have its rights, privileges and freedom taken away. It will become nothing more than another form of slavery. It’s been said that when a people realize that they can vote funds for themselves democracy dies! In fact, Paul had a good answer to the professional welfare practitioner in 2 Thessalonians 3:10 where he told them that anyone who is not willing to work, should not be allowed to eat either. I wonder what would happen to the Professional Welfare Case if that were the law of the land. I’m not speaking of someone truly in need of help for a temporary period of time. Nor do I refer to those rare cases where family, friends, church and then maybe government should help long term. Sadly when the focus turns inward destruction begins and that virtually always begins on the inside!

I believe that the problems in Society lies in the issue of Sin and the problem of Self – – What is sin? A most simplistic definition would be to make self the center of your universe rather than God as Adam and Eve did in the Garden. It is to vote God out as Lord of All and insert self. It is to make “self” the center of your universe. A Society that turns its focus inward where “what’s in it for me?” becomes the rule rather than the exception is just like sin, doomed for ultimate destruction. Self – – The culprit in virtually everything that is wrong with our world today. The majority of all the problems of our society are traceable back to the problem of “self”. We are either self-less or selfish. When we make “self” the center of our universe it’s all about us and the only purpose is our purpose. Do you realize that offence is impossible without first focusing on “self”? Most of us suffered offence at one time or another and Proverbs 18 tells us that a brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city. However, I suggest to you that you cannot become offended or “take” offence unless “self” is the focus. If our focus is anywhere but us, our needs, our wants, or rights or even our desires we cannot be offended. We have to TAKE offence. We have to give it conscious thought and make a willful decision to take umbrage to a word or deed. We, as Christians, do not belong to ourselves we belong to God. The Blood of Jesus bought and paid for us, therefore we have nothing to take offense over.

I am not suggesting that we get in a circle, sing kumbaya, don’t worry be happy and all will be well ca sara sara. No we need to turn our focus to God. I’m angry at where I see America today and what she will become if this course those in power have charted reaches their desired destination. The Pied Piper is playing his flute and the masses are following without any resistance it seems. I want America back and am willing to do whatever it takes to see that happen just like those of the Continental Congress and the soldiers of the Revolutionary War. I want liberty and freedom. However, I realize that America has, for too long and in too many ways turned her back on God by allowing the politicians and ideologues to push us toward this false utopian society at an alarming pace. I’m angry at the church for being complacent for too long. At myself for being a watcher rather than an involved participant in the process. At my elected representatives for being seduced by the power and the money and selling out their principles for principal.

My personal commitment is that from today forward, I resolve to:

  • Seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness.
  • Be involved in the political process that shapes my ability to worship, teach God’s Word and truth freely as well as reach out to other nations and lands as well as live the life of a free man.
  • Invest my money, time, intellect and energy into seeing America become America again.

So please forgive me for not being as diligent as I should have been and join me in the cause for freedom to see America become the real America again! Intercessory prayer and hard work are both required in this battle! For some it will cost everything but eternity, for others there will be an extremely high price to pay and they will endure extreme suffering because the forces we are facing are vicious. But as we succeed not only will we have liberty to advance the Kingdom but we will give any and all future generations an America that embodies the true principles of Liberty and Freedom! For to do nothing is to surrender!
