I had a long discussion with one of my favorite people in the world yesterday. She is very intelligent and a tireless worker. She is married to a retired congressman who was as powerful as they come in his heyday. She is very influential in Washington D.C. and knows “everybody” in the highest of political circles from Presidents on down. She is a Godly woman who joined our prayer team when I first founded the Jesus Alliance. Today she is still working tirelessly to fight the so-called progressive liberal socialist element and somehow save America.
I asked her if she really believed America could be saved. As expected, she was very positive in her thoughts about that subject, and she believes that, yes it can be saved. I told her my feeling is that it cannot be saved, that it’s too late. Her thoughts are that we are approaching an iceberg but have yet to hit it, and my contention is that we have already hit it and the ship is sinking like the Titanic. My position is that our work should be directed towards lowering the lifeboats and saving as many folks as possible while there is yet time. Her position is that if enough people will take action, we can change the direction of the ship, avoid the iceberg, and prevent sinking the ship.
She gave me the example of teaching Critical Race Theory in schools. Recently there have been some big wins with parents attending school board meetings and fighting hard to eliminate it and winning. She said other maladies we confront from abortion to radical climate activists, out-of-control welfare, illegal aliens invading our country by the millions, fake news, etc could be turned around if enough people got involved.
I used to believe the same thing, and you can call me a cynic but, in my mind, sadly, I have abandoned those dreams. People just do not seem motivated to fight and are absorbed by their daily lives and I could never figure out how to motivate them. I reminded her we are taught in 1 John that the entire world is under the sway of the wicked one, Satan. Then I mentioned that I personally believe we are living in the Last Days and though no man knows exactly when Jesus will return, In Matthew He told His disciples that we will know it is growing close by the “signs of the times” and He named some of them. Those signs are here now, the most important of which was the return of the Jews to the Holy Land in 1948.
She again optimistically stated that she believed that we had not hit the iceberg. So, just for argument’s sake, I responded, suppose we haven’t hit it what is her plan? It was in essence to convince people to take action in their area of interest. I said it was too far gone and too big of a job and people were too complacent to do much of anything. She mentioned that Jesus changed the world with just 12 disciples. That was then and this is now. Jesus predicted the world would get more and more evil right up until the day He says, ENOUGH! AND returns. What about that statement and all of the prophecies concerning the End Times?
I mentioned all the seven mountains which many believe control society namely, family, religion, education, media, entertainment, business, and government. All are under the sway of Satan or better are dominated by him. Families are falling apart, churches are dividing and being destroyed over homosexual marriages and abortion, kids are being taught in kindergarten to question whether they are boys or girls and that white people are demons, the media is so full of lies only the ignorant believe it, “Entertainment” is dominated by X-rated filth, business has made their God, “money”, and government is perhaps the worst evil where corruption is so rampant that only a handful of God-fearing patriots remain.
I sincerely believe a huge revival could turn things around. If we were to have a revival God would bless it and we could avoid the iceberg for who knows how long. Short of that we need to try and rescue as many lost souls as we can find. I have no doubt that my dear friend will keep trying to save America, and I applaud her efforts. but as for me, I’m going to focus exclusively on those lost souls.
She told me to imagine if the people all over the country were to awaken and join the fight to save America what could be accomplished? Hmmm . . . Just imagine if people all over the country were to awaken and join me and my way of thinking in leading lost souls to Jesus what could be accomplished? If the lost souls in America would find Jesus and would unite they could and would turn America away from its current course of embracing evil like the folks in Sodom and Gomorrah.
At any rate, it was a good discussion and I enjoyed it. The Bible should lead and guide us with the foundation being that no matter what anyone says in these last days Jesus gives us eternal life in paradise. So, Who you gonna believe?
1 John 5:9
If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son . . .
Have a great weekend and go to church this Sunday!
