Breaking America’s spell over God’s people by Charles Pretlow 05/18/2017
Even with the increased dividedness across the nation, along with the political chaos and the resurrection of the cold war, Christians are still asleep!
The American dream and a watered-down Gospel has blinded God’s people to the obvious. The full truth of Christ’s teaching concerning the end-of-this-age events have been all but completely suppressed by most Christians theologians, authors, preachers, and teachers. The false teachings of Christ’s return have fit nicely into the hearts of millions of believers due to the extreme
Christian idolatry of America and prosperity, attempting to make America heaven on earth.
Blinded and worried, God’s people are “all about” saving America from the wicked, and in doing so, they are putting themselves in peril of not becoming ready for the coming tribulation that leads to Christ’s appearance.
The hopes of redeeming America have completely eroded. Even with the election of Donald Trump and the agenda of changing America’s hell bent fall into total chaos—nothing is working. Rather the effort is fueling the bulging divide and confusion continues to escalate across the nation. All the efforts to drain the swamp in Washington DC are just inflaming the rage, vitriol, and inspiring more insane-illogic of the wicked.
Don’t be deceived, the righteous are being stripped of power to persuade the masses to return to morality, accountability, and common sense. The unrepentant and the wicked demand safe space so they don’t have to hear the truth, and this sin-centered bubble of is gaining legal traction.
And why? Because most churches, street and campus ministries point a condemning finger at the wicked, causing the freedom of speech with truth and the Gospel to be attacked. The wicked have seen enough Christian hypocrisy and carnal living to have any conviction of sin and judgment smothered. Any attempt to warn or confront in the power of the Holy Spirit concerning their perverted life-styles and wickedness will continue to incite outright rage. Already, their sexually perverted agenda has gained entrance into grade schools to indoctrinate children.
The wicked of today are becoming as evil as the wicked in Lot’s day. In Sodom, the gang of homosexuals attacked Lot verbally and tried to break into his house and rape him and his angelic guests. When Lot confronted them, their vile hatred and disrespect went as follows: “But they said, ‘Stand back!’ And they said, ‘This fellow came to sojourn, and he has become the judge! Now we will deal worse with you than with them.’ Then they pressed hard against the man Lot, and drew near to break the door down” (Genesis 19:9).
Peter wrote that Lot was, “Greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard) (2 Peter 2:7-8). Few Christians today are greatly distressed by the wicked, so as to take to heart Christ’s warnings of the coming hour of darkness leading up to his appearance: “Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot—they were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building, but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom, fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all— so will it be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed” (Luke 17:28-30).
Fun Loving Christians Playing Church
Christians are still happy-go-lucky. Even though the wickedness and the immoral cultural nightmare continues. Christian national leaders continue to invoke “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land“ (2 Chronicles 7:14). All this, in the hopes of praying in a revival to change the moral direction of America. It was too late years ago, when the true move of the Holy Spirit during the 70s was swallowed up by carnal church growth, lukewarm preaching, insane false spiritual manifestations, and toxic catering to social needs without making disciples.
True prophets back in the seventies and eighties, like David Wilkerson (The Vision and Beyond) were shunned, shamed, and ignored. Now read Wilkerson’s vision he received back in 1973. It should terrify the reader into repentance, into seeking the truth, coming to the Lordship of Christ, and desiring to walk in the Kingdom of Christ now, in true holiness and the fear of God.
Abraham beseeched God on behalf of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, but unfortunately there were not enough righteous in the cities to stop the destruction. However, righteous Lot and his family were saved by leaving, and in that, Lot had to be virtually dragged out of the city. Even as Lot’s family escaped, the spell of Sodom caused Lot’s wife to look back, causing her own demise.
Notable Christian leaders dare not declare to God’s people that America is past the point of no-return and is slated for End-of-this-Age (EOTA) judgments. They dare not warn Christians who are clinging to the things of this world, as Christ plainly said, “Remember Lot’s wife” (Luke 17:32).
Leadership Vacuum Across the Nation and the World
Leaders in business, politics, and in Christianity are now in over their heads for solutions and direction. This vacuum of true leadership will soon be replaced by true servants of Christ who will not be afraid to warn and describe accurately and prophetically the coming dire troubles.
From here on, political and Christian leaders alike will be stumped and appear to the masses as incompetent. Then for a brief time the truth will get out to the masses in a mighty way. Then the door will shut on the truth that warns of the coming judgements, as this secular leadership vacuum becomes filled the Antichrist’s leadership, as he employs his entourage of sycophants, who will help him promote his deceiving schemes as rises to worldwide power.
Birth Pang Events Pushing More Chaos
God is allowing Satan to bring end-of-this-age trouble and chaos upon the whole world (including America). One of the primary objectives in this progression of trouble and chaos is to break the spell of the Americanized Gospel. A large portion of American Christians believe God made the USA a Christian nation, ordained as one nation under God, to become His vehicle to save the world and usher in the 1000-year millennial reign.
Now anarchy, lawlessness, and rebellion have become the political voice of choice for the wicked, racing towards various boiling points, inciting more chaos. How enraged, threatening, and out of control will America become before Christians are shaken awake and the spell of the American dream is broken. The hearts of most American Christians are far from God, filled with lethargy because of sin and the love of this life. Few are willing to accept that the world and America are in the end-of-this-age distresses of chaos and trouble.
Lot, even though warned of the coming fiery judgment, stood frozen and spellbound; “As morning dawned, the angels urged Lot, saying, ‘Up! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be swept away in the punishment of the city.’ But he lingered. So the men seized him and his wife and his two daughters by the hand, the LORD being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city” (Genesis 19:15-16).
God is not sending angels to seize lethargic-spellbound Christians who linger in sin, refusing to give up the love of America, but rather God is letting the fiery heat of increasing chaos, judgments, and the loss of religious freedoms to shakeup God’s people who are spellbound by churchianity. The final EOTA message from above will be a: “Voice from heaven saying, ‘Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues’” (Revelation 18:4).
Yes, Christ promised the following: “But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And then he will send out the angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven” (Mark 13:24-27).
Multitudes of believers even more spellbound by false doctrines teaching that Jesus will send out the angels to rapture of the saints before the Great Tribulation. However, it is quite clear in the above passage from the Gospel of Mark that Christ will send the angels (like God did for Lot) to rescue his own, after those days of extreme tribulation.
Multitudes of Christians Lingering Over the Love of this World—America
Even though the hand writing is on the wall—which should make Christ’s warnings concerning the end of this age shouted from every pulpit, loud and clear—Christians are still asleep and in a spiritual stupor. This recent election will not stop the end of this age evil chaos and judgments—the backlash for this administration’s efforts to bring change will come with vengeances. Like the wicked in Lot’s day, the wickedness moving through the masses across America will bounce back with new legal and political clout. They will succeed as they press hard to destroy any remaining vestige of America the Beautiful, Christian moral influence, along with God’s name and His blessings.
At best, we are gaining some time to get ready. However, the sincere believer in Christ must make sure he or she change their heart’s allegiance now. Who will you serve, the American dream rejuvenated by Trump, or the kingdom of Christ. Most Christians smugly rely too much on their American citizenship, with all its blessings, totally ignorant that they are putting their citizenship in Christ’s kingdom in jeopardy.
The cares of the American dream are about to swell to an overwhelming pressure and will become a trap sprung by the devil: “But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:34-36)
Wake Up Now and Stay Awake
Christian, is it chaotic enough to shake loose the lethargy? Everyone who has an ear to hear, it is time to wake up before it’s too late. Now is the time to becomes pure, seek God’s perfect will and walk in the works He has prepared for each believer. Just coasting along playing church is about to end. You can count on it.
No one will escape the coming mounting chaos, it will touch all. The chaos will grow until it disturbs everyone’s false peace and tranquility. It will grow and grow until the American dream is replaced within the Christian heart with the reality of judgment and eternity—and that reality is at our door step, pressing on our doors. Millions upon millions of Christians may wake up and find themselves foolishly unprepared, judged with the wicked and find the door to Christ’s kingdom shut. God forbid that be the case for you and me. We need to wake up and stay awake!
Those who don’t wake up and stay awake will cry, weep, and beg, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ Only to hear, “Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.” Therefore, you must take to heart Christ’s warning concerning the end of this age and, “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour” (Matthew 25:11-13.
