where to go from here

The United States for over two centuries has admirably been the moral back bone for the world community.

But all that is changing as the nation drifts further, and further from Jesus Christ. Embracing the gospel of secularism as its God which is the perfect vehicle for spiritual, monetary and moral decadency.

The decadency of today has become so common place. That in some instances, this decadency is considered to be relevant for a modern society.

Resulting in many who are not troubled. Let alone shocked by what is occurring through out the United States.

It has been said, that if a lie is told often enough, the liar believes the lie to be truth. So it is with decadency, if it is practiced enough the behavior becomes acceptable.

All this manifests itself in deception, which the Bible addresses constantly though out its many pages.

Jesus himself encouraged people to be aware of world events. Because failure to do so, would result in being greatly deceived, Matthew 24:4.

As deception becomes indistinguishable from decadency, it becomes the light most identify with. Leading to a broad acceptance that all religious paths lead to spiritual enlightenment.

Which caused Christ, to warn against such announcements. When He said, “For many will come in My name saying, “I am the Christ, and shall deceive many,” Matthew 24:5.

Which will only lead to further decadency, sending the world deeper into a spiritual, monetary, social and moral abyss where there is no return.

Where every person is their own god, and their godliness is expressed through nation states.

Over time the community of nations becomes ethically bankrupt where truth and decency is nonexistent. Where a code of ethics and thus morality exists, which is *might makes right.*

Which eventually leads to constant world conditions, where wars and rumors of war are common place.

That is what decadency is all about. Where life, liberty and prosperity are not valued, unless it is in the domain of the conqueror.

Then the conquerors redefine the meaning of life, liberty and prosperity to suit the taste of the conquer.

Twice the United States has destroyed such attempts. Extending the riches of those fruits for the world to feast upon.

But today is the United States up to saving the world community once again? I think not because the United States is on the path of pure decadency itself, which is a frightening prospect.

Today we are beyond that particular Christ statement of war and rumors of war. Today we are engaged in a third world war. It’s just not as recognizable as such because it’s so very different from the first two world wars.

This is a war between the God of Abraham. His genealogy to David, and David’s lineage to the very birth of Christ, and beyond reaching us today.

For us today, it occurs as follows, “And if you are Christ’s, then you are of Abraham’s offspring, and heirs according to the promise,” Galatians 3:29. Creating two very different worlds.

Whether we like it or not, in Christ or not, everyone in the community of nations is being attacked by that fallen angel Lucifer, the Devil. Who has armies of invisible ground forces known as demons. Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

Lucifer the originator, and master of decadency, along with other fallen angels. Are constantly engaging the community of nations in conflict for control of a world.

Key targets are those who live outside of influence of the God of Abraham and His Christ. So it’s no play upon words, when it is said, we are the hope of the world! In Christ it is pure truth.

Lucifer knows that humanity is most susceptible to deception which is the path to decadency. When decadency is clothed in the legitimacy of religion. Two religious forces having cloned themselves in the religious tapestry of religion. Through them the world is headed for unprecedented disasters.

Those religions are Islam and apostate Christendom. Making the task of the faithful in Christ more difficult. Which calls for the faithful to believe, that in and through Christ. That we as *ordinary Christians* are capable of accomplishing extra ordinary things for Christ.

As in the time of Christ, so it is today, People want signs. Jesus was sympathetic with there interest and ours.

The first sign indicated by Jesus was to be aware of the crafty art of deception. It manifests itself through nation states, the political arena, commerce, religion and every imaginable human transaction. (cp. Matthew 24:3)

Jesus also provided the perfect antidote. (cp. Ephesians 1:17-23). Read those scriptures slowly, and absorb them into your entire being.

Bible students know that through out history God has used calamities to awaken the global community concerning His displeasure’s

They can manifest themselves through wars, floods, earthquakes and catastrophic economic collapses. Usually as global phenomenon, as opposed to the expected regional occurrences. (cp. Matthew 24:7).

One specific word in Matthew 24:7, should be acknowledged word *pestilence.* Today’s pestilence is not just a national dilemma, but a global problem as well. We know it as COVID-19 with its variant strains. With pestilence defined as a fatal epidemic.

Governments must try, and convince the people that things will get better. In order to avoid rioting in the streets which could lead to the over through of their government. And maybe things will get better because the world has a history of overcoming such collections of pestilences.

But if the world salvages itself from such a collections of scourges, greater ones will follow. Because Jesus said, “It’s just the beginning of sorrows.” (cp. Matthew 24:8).
