COMING JUDGMENT

 

By Dr. Richard Ing

April 10, 2009

 

Before my trip to the Philippines on March 26, 2009, I went through my library looking for books to give to our Bible College in Santa Rosa.  Two books caught my immediate attention.  One was America’s Last Call, written by David Wilkerson in 1998, and the other was Days of Hunger, Days of Chaos, authored by Texe Marrs in 1999.  Both accurately prophesied today’s financial crisis and predicted even worse events to come.  I recommend reading both books.

 

Wilkerson spoke of a worldwide financial collapse brought about by America’s greed and hunger for the good life, and judgment that follows prosperity.  The Bible shows that God gives His people many warnings when they turn their backs to Him.  Just before judgment and destruction, God prospers the nation.  Then judgment comes.  In the story of Noah, the people danced, ate and drank, married and gave in marriage as if there was no tomorrow.  Then the rains came.  Prosperity is God’s last call to repentance.

 

In the days of Isaiah, God gave Israel unprecedented prosperity and the people only craved for more.  God called the people to repentance and instead, the people wanted more prosperity and turned their backs to God. 

 

And in that day did the Lord God of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth: and behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for to-morrow we shall die.  Is. 22:12-13. 

 

Soon thereafter, Assyria destroyed the Northern Kingdom of Israel and scattered the ten tribes to the four winds.

 

In Jeremiah’s day, the lost books of the law were presented to King Josiah.  He wept and rent his clothes.  Josiah destroyed the temples to strange gods, killed or exiled the priests of the high places and called for national repentance.  2 Ki. Chapters 22 and 23.  The people flocked to the temples.  A great revival took place, but they never changed their ways.  Great prosperity came as the prophets and priests preached “Peace!  Peace!”  Jer. 8:11.  (One of the definitions of peace in Strong’s Concordance is prosperity.)  It was a false revival.  “The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their own means; and My people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?”  Jer. 5:31.  The prophets disregarded coming judgment and the priests (pastors) preached a prosperity message instead of repentance.  The people loved it!  The priests became covetous and competed with one another.  Jer. 6:13. 

 

They wanted to kill Jeremiah when he told them that there was a war!  Jer. 26:8, 11.  They could not see their own sins.  “Wherefore hath the Lord pronounced all this great evil against us? or what is our iniquity? or what is our sin that we have committed against the Lord our God?”  Jer. 16:10.   In the end, God allowed Babylon to completely destroy Judah.  Although there was a semblance of revival, it was only lip service.  The people craved the good times and refused to turn back to God.  Despite the fact that the temples were filled, God was displeased. “Notwithstanding the Lord turned not from the fierceness of His great wrath, wherewith His anger was kindled against Judah, because of all the provocations that Manassah had provoked Him withal.”  2 Ki. 23:26. 

 

America has enjoyed unprecedented prosperity the last fifty years, but turned her back to God at the same time.  She barred prayer from schools, religion in public places, denied her Christian heritage, approved of homosexuality, sexual impurity, same-sex marriages, abortion and adopted the ways of the heathen.  All the while, God increasingly prospered America.  Over 70% of Christians recently voted in favor of politicians that approve of abortion, stem cell research on embryos, same-sex marriage, homosexuality.  They didn’t care what the Bible says.  All they wanted was more prosperity and voted for those that promised a return to the good times.  The pastors preach prosperity.  They are greedy and covetous, competing for the biggest church.  Big numbers mean wealth and success to them.  Televangelists have become billionaires and pastors have become rich – living in expensive penthouses, going first class, joining country clubs, riding limousines.  Some own diamond mines, oil refineries, race horses and fine mansions.  Judgment is around the corner.

 

Do not be persuaded by recent upward movements of the stock markets - temporary spikes generated by the hundreds of billions of dollars of bailout money infused into a staggering economy.  America and the world will seem to recover and the devices of men will appear to work.  Do not be deceived.  America and the world are in the hands of God.  He alone decides the future of the world.  All it takes is one major calamity and the world will be in worse shape than ever before.

 

In the end, all the prophecies in the Bible concerning God’s judgment on America and the world will come to pass.  The four dreaded horsemen of the Apocalypse are about to come thundering down upon the earth and its inhabitants.  Rev. 6:1-8.   A false savior will come to rescue the world but will fail.  Rev. 6:2.  In the beginning the New World Order or Global Government will succeed, but in the end there will be wars and famines and pestilences never before seen on the face of the earth.  One-fourth of mankind will die.  Rev. 6:8.  God is going to use the designs and schemes of evil men to sift His people and separate the chaff from the wheat.  We can rely on the Bible to give us an accurate account of the future.  No matter what mankind does, judgment is imminent. 

 

Texe Marrs points to a conspiracy that has deliberately taken control over the food supplies of the world.  The New World Order owns over 95% of the seeds used to grow wheat, rice and other food staples.  They have eliminated natural and original seeds from the marketplace and replaced them with hybrid seeds good for only one crop at a time.  Farmers all over the world are not able to replant crops by reserving a portion of the harvest as they did before.  They are forced to buy seeds from designated sources.  In addition, patent rights have been taken out on just about every crop producing seed or natural product.  Many governments, including the United States, have passed laws that control farmers’ rights to grow what they want and in the quantities they want.  Vast areas of land are now designated as “no grow” zones.  Our food supplies are under the almost total control of a power-hungry central government.

 

According to Marrs, members of the New World Order have purchased and now control over 95% of the warehouses, processing plants, transportation facilities, supermarkets, fertilizer companies, and just about every aspect of the food chain.  History shows that evil people have committed mass murders or genocides by depriving the people of food.  It is about to happen again; this time in America and all over the world.  In the end, only those with the mark of the beast will have access to food.

 

A FALSE FAITH

 

I have read the argument that God will not visit His wrath upon His people and He will protect them from harm.  Others claim that all we have to do is have faith in God and we will make it through.  While in general it is true, what they don’t tell you is that the Bible says that there is going to be a great falling away from the faith before Jesus comes back.  2 Th. 2:3.  Many Christians will not be able to stand against the great persecutions and trials and will succumb to the deceptions of the enemy.  Bible history shows that God will judge His people.

 

Having faith in God is not a simple matter.  Many claim faith in God; but in reality, most have very little faith, if at all.  Jesus’ admonition to “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you,” (Mt. 6:33), has never become a living reality for most Christians.  The overwhelming majority still trust only in their own abilities and strengths to provide their needs.  They cannot find time to serve God and not enough money left over to pay tithes and offerings.  They spend precious little time coming to church because they cannot rely on God to provide for mortgages, food and clothing.  They simply don’t trust God enough so “seek ye first the kingdom of God.”

 

How are they going to be able to trust God when enemy soldiers go house to house to kill or arrest Christians?   If they never really trusted in Him before, can they now suddenly have strong faith in God?  No.  Most Christians will fall when reality hits the fan.  Will you?

 

I just talked with someone in a large church and she informed me that her church is now engaged in a program to save food, water and other supplies.  Some of our people are also into survival programs.  But the only thing that will save you in the end is a strong, abiding faith and trust in God.  Letting go of the world and trusting God for everything is the only survival technique that will work in the end.  All your self-preparations will fail.  They will last for only a short time.  When others find out that you have supplies, they will come knocking on your door.

 

The good life is in its death throes.  The bell has tolled.  The world has been judged.  Better start trusting God now.
