"A day that will live in infamy" Decades ago, President Roosevelt spoke these words on December 7th, 1941, when the Japanese declared war on the United States of America by bombing Pearl Harbor, even as the horror of the destruction of millions of Jews was being carried out by Nazi Germany.
Since then, wars have come and gone, and America has become complacent, fat and sassy on Her fame and fortune as History and Time march on. Forgetting that this country was founded upon belief in the Lord God, and the freedom to worship God the Creator, the Powers that Be--the grinding machine of liberalism and dishonest politics--have slowly eroded these truths which were so dearly held to be unalienable rights, sacred, in our Constitution and by our forefathers.
Thus it is that in May of 2020, all seems forgotten and lost. In the early days, parents taught their children from the Holy Bible, the Living Word of God, which not only was authored by God the Son (Jesus Christ) the Creator, but was revered and honored in every household. People believed in following the precepts set down by the Lord for honor and integrity not only in daily and personal life, but in National life as well.
Eras and decades have come and gone, but gradually, honor and integrity, all the values of truth, have been shoved aside. From being a client Nation of God, America has become as ungodly as have socialistic, communistic nations which not only renounce God, but hate Him.
All our lives, devout Christians have learned the history of the Word of God, the Holy Bible, the means of living life, the Who, What, Where, How and Why (and sometimes, in order, When) God cares about mankind and His solution to sinful living. He has provided a Way, and the Way has been rejected by many.
He has foretold the events of the world long before they happened. All that has been foretold to this point, May, 2020, has been fulfilled, and now a catastrophic event has fallen upon an ungodly world: a plague virus, causing panic and random, reasonless thinking, destroying thousands in fear.
Yet, for Christians, we have been told, Fear not, for I, the Lord your God , am with you.
Christians are now in awe as a frightening but fascinating possibility that our most-hoped-for prophecy might be nearer at hand than we could have ever imagined: THE TRUMPET CALL, in which The Lord Himself shall descend from His throne in Heaven to the clouds above, awaiting us, as He blows the trumpet: ALL Christians, those truly born'again, will DISAPPEAR suddenly from the face of the earth, all babies and small children and those who have not reached the age of accountability (being able to choose) will vanish.
MILLIONS WILL disappear from this earth. Those left behind are family, friends, acquaintances, strangers , who have rejected Christ the Lord, as Savior of all mankind. These will be left to face seven years of what the Bible has foretold is "The most terrible time this earth has ever known"
The sorrow for mothers and fathers and grandparents who have raised their children "in the Lord" as commanded by Him in the Word, is that many children brought up in the Lord opt to reject Him. While we as parents cling to the promise, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it."---sadly, we see the years slipping by, the children---the sons, the daughters, the grandchildren--nephews and nieces grow to age entering a world of arrogance, scoffing, rejection of God's Holy Word, rejection of the command to "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ", and thus choosing to be left behind when the glorious trumpet sounds.
I do not know how the Lord's plan engages this matter, but since His plan is perfect, it is certain that our happiness at being with Him cannot be marred by sorrow of those of our loved ones left behind.
We do know that during this blackest of times in the last three and a half years of the Tribulation, God sends witnesses to the unrepentant Jews and thus Gentiles also who have REFUSED the "chip" of the World Ruler, either on their foreheads, or on their hands. Their only hope during that dispensation is REFUSAL to have the chip, thus another chance to believe that what Mom and Dad and Gramma and Grampa and Aunt and Uncle, cousins, said was true: Christ is Real! He is alive! We are too late! We have been LEFT BEHIND.
This has been written for my loved ones and for the loved ones of all Christians everywhere--who as of this moment have rejected the call of the Holy Spirit to believe on the Savior.
I urge you to--and hope--that you 'change your mind' about our King of Kings, whose judgment will fall upon the ungodly when He returns after the seven years of Tribulation: Words of everlasting consequences, regret for the rejecters, joy for the believers, "Believe on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved." "Those who have not believed are condemned already, because they have not believed on the only uniquely born Son of God."
And when He returns, those who stand before Him condemned, will see the pit opened, the abyss of burning fire, and as the angel of the Lord approaches them and takes hold, they shall be thrown into torment forever and ever.
May God have mercy on your souls if, after knowing, and still not believing, you are one of these.
