The same evening the WTC was attacked on 9/11/01, it was made plain that the business as usual attitude of the USA would
no longer be the same. It is well known that when peaceful, basically trusting people are confronted with sudden death and
destruction, they look for deliverance from any source. It is unfortunate that we failed to look to Father. Some believe it
appears that Americans will willingly relinquish more and more of our liberties in the name of security. Few are aware that
as children, we not only willingly allow but insist that big government and the soldiers of the NWO protect our persons and
force us to alter our private lives. The entire world and many of the sovereign forces of many countries have joined in the
"fight" against terrorism. That attack also was a general black eye for "religion": (not to imply that religion didn't need
a good whack .) Needless to say, true Christians are also classed as part of religion by the world. This fact has a dire implication
for the future. Within the past couple of months we have been witness to such things as the Catholic Pope kissing the Koran,
as well as our own government allowing that Allah is as valid a term as any for our Father. God is not mocked. He never changes.
Beloved, the thing that will surely bring forth Elijah is the same thing that that brought him forth <1Kg 17> when King
Ahab married the heathen Jezebel, built the grove for her sake and began to worship Baal. <1 Kg 16:30+>. This land of
America IS the bastion for Christianity throughout the world. It was from the moment our forefathers stepped off the Mayflower.
It was set and ordained so by Father, and because of this we have been peculiarly blessed throughout our history. True, we
have been guilty of baal-worship (read the NWO) on and off since the end of WW2. Perhaps that is why we haven't won any since.
We have been conditioned as Americans that victory in war comes not from a just cause sanctioned by Father, but from a coalition
of the NWO Nations, the equivalent of Baal. <Gen 6:11, Gen 11 all,>. Just as Elijah announced in 1 Kg 17:1, we can figure
on a long dry spell for our nation and the economy in particular, because we have been conditioned into a life of plenty by
what we thought was our own ability and or righteousness. Note that after each of these three events <Gen 6:11, Gen 11,
and 1Kg 17> God answered particularly, but always within that generation wherein the abomination was committed.
Thus we can be certain that the world, and the USA particularly will certainly be condemned to the same history by worshipping
that which is not God, and seeking comfort in world effects. <Deu 32:21> . There is in particular, a warning message
for the USA about this present time in Amos 6. It is assuring to me that the locusts came just after this warning. In Amos
chapter 7, these locusts <cp Rev 9> eat up all the remaining food after the king got his share first (read taxes). Then,
after intervention by Amos (His Elect), the Lord then judged by fire. Finally the Lord set a plumb line to surround His servants.
And as recorded history proves, He always will punish those who are guilty while protecting those that are within His sanctuary.
We should understand a bit more in a while, as we understand the full truth and meaning of the Words of Jesus.
16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour
what ye shall speak.
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against
their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over
the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master
of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?
26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy
both soul and body in hell.
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in
law against her mother in law.
36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is
not worthy of me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous
man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.
42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple,
verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward. (KJV)
Christ was speaking as always to those who believe of all generations. It is specifically addressed to those believers
of the last generation, (read carefully verse 22, above). This prophecy has obviously not come to pass. It surely will. We
can only imagine exactly how this could be. It does become more clear after the events of 9/11 as to exactly what Christ meant
when He said "you will be hated of all men for my name's sake", for immediately after the smoke began to clear from the 9/11
disaster, quiet but vocal howls of protest and anger began to escalate against the "hideous" and evil power of "religion".
Islam in particular, maybe, but soon it was made religion in general by the politically correct crowd. As I mentioned in the
introduction, Christianity is also classed as a "religion" in the eyes of the general public.
The world in particular, but this country in general has arrived at the very threshold of the conditions of the last event
which brought forth Elijah. <1Kg 17>. When the spirit of Elijah appears, <Mal 4:5-6>, it is to be manifested in
the two witnesses of <Rev 11:3-14>.
As I mentioned in the "seals trumps and vials" study, there will be a time soon when there will be great suffering brought
on mankind by the 2 witnesses <Rev 6:12-17 & Rev 11:3-6>. They will have tremendous power to smite the earth with
plagues as they will. His Words as in <Matt, quoted above> then will be just as true at that time as it was when He
uttered them. Since these 2 witnesses are our cheerleaders, and we will in no way reject Christ nor condemn their actions,
do you have any doubt why we will be hunted down and betrayed by even our own families? It should be clear that we will be
branded as "religious nuts and dangerous terrorists" by mankind.
