Dear Ones in Christ,
Without a God-sent revival, we can kiss America, as we have known it, goodbye. As we look at the big picture, we see areas where God is moving, but the majority of believers are still in a fog. Why is that?
Satan, using his Jesuits and their literature has successfully broken our theological seminaries. They once may have held up the Bible as the inspired, inerrant, infallible words of God, but now they set up themselves as the final authority. Their technique is to question and ridicule young students who were on fire for Christ, to reduce them to ashes, cause them to lose their faith and turn them instead to the Bibles that have been reworked by pro-Catholic theologians.
What a tragedy! We have a Bible, loved by millions, that is exactly the words God gave to His holy apostles and prophets (2 Peter 3:2), which was spread across the world by faithful believers. But Bibles are now being sold that have deleted or added to the scriptures, changed meanings and minimized the deity of Jesus.
The old King James Bible (AV 1611) is right on target, and it`s despised by theologians. Just try to find it in many "Christian" bookstores. Either it is on the bottom shelf or it`s collecting dust in the back room. Instead, they are pushing "Bibles" that don`t even tell you what you must do before you are baptized (try to find Acts 8:37 in an NIV). I detect a strange, rebellious, hostile spirit working on Christians who hold the King James version in contempt. Here is a tough scripture, beloved: "Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed..." (Proverbs 13:13).
So, now we have many pastors who believe God`s words were lost with the originals. If that is the case, why put your faith in it? Put your faith into prosperity and good works. Don`t offend anyone by "contending for the faith" (Jude 1:3)! Charles G. Finney indicated that if a nation goes down, it will be because the pastors stopped preaching against sin. Thank the Lord for those men of God who do preach the word and those bookstores that do stock God`s holy words!
So we are plagued with unbelief and Rome maneuvering in the shadows with their phony "ecumenical movement," enticing many Protestants and Baptists into their net. I shudder to see Christian leaders destroying the sheep by going to the Vatican with hat in hand, trying to win the pope`s nod of approval.
I think the martyrs for the faith would cry out against such betrayal! But there is another crowd lurking in the shadows: pastors and deacons, who claim both Christ and Ba`al. In one American denomination alone, over one million Masons spiritually kill any chance for revival.
One last danger. Muslim nations no longer are afraid to send vast numbers of immigrants to our shores, because they are confident we will not try to reach them with the Gospel. I say this to our shame.
Without the Church repenting of its false doctrines, false Bibles, being driven by a false purpose and its lack of concern for the things of God, our country will be thrown into the ash heap of history. But if Christians will humble themselves, become broken and realize that America is now a pagan nation —and that, in fact, it is a mission field— then we`ll turn off our TV sets, read the words of God, pass out tracts and begin witnessing to the people all around us who are blindly rushing toward the lake of fire.
The Lord is coming soon. But until that Day arrives we`d better get busy, or one day America may be under Sharia law with a Muslim flag flying over the White House —and we`ll only have ourselves to blame.
Wake up! Pray for revival!
Your brother in Christ,
