Blow the Trumpet in Zion - God's Judgment is Coming to America
U.S.A. has died - R.I.P.
Biblical Prophecy of Impending Catastrophe
"Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound the alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the Day of the LORD is coming, for it is at hand." (Joel 2:1)
"Blow the trumpet in Zion" has an ominous symbolic meaning of God's command to the Church to give solemn warning of the impending catastrophe that is going to happen to America. The "Day of the LORD" is the judgment and wrath of God (Isa. 13:6-13; Zeph. 1:14-18). The Great Tribulation has begun! (Mt. 24:21-22)
"Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying, "Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: "When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand.' "So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me. (Ezek. 33:1-7)
A warning that God’s judgment is coming to America and it begins with the Church
"For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? Now ‘If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?" (1 Pet. 4:17-18)
The reason why God's judgment begins with the Church is because America, with a Christian majority, has abandoned Him and His moral principles, and has chosen ungodly people to govern the nation.
On November 8, 2008, four days after Election Day in the United States, I preached the sermon: How do Christians Respond to Change in this World ?
The sermon had a mixed reaction. Some think it is good but some are offended by it. Since I have very distinct contention with the anti-Christian views made by the President Elect Barack Obama, some feel my sermon is inappropriate. However, a responsible Christian minister must not place the local Church in danger of losing its status of incorporation, but at the same time uphold the fundamental doctrines of the Christian Faith. "Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said: ‘We ought to obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:29)
Contend Earnestly for the Faith
"Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints." (Jude 1:3)
There are three anti-Christian doctrines spoken by Barack Obama that I contended with in my sermon.
1. One does not have to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to get to heaven.
2. The woman has the right of choice to abort the baby.
3. Homosexuals have equal rights as heterosexuals to adopt children.
Barack Obama questions the Veracity of the Holy Bible
Transcript of Barack Obama's Speech questioning the Veracity of the Holy Bible
I did not mention in my sermon that Barack Obama had questioned the veracity of the Holy Bible. Here is what he said.
"And even if we did have only Christians in our midst, if we expelled every non-Christian from the United States of America, whose Christianity would we teach in the schools? Would we go with James Dobson's, or Al Sharpton's? Which passages of Scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is ok and that eating shellfish is abomination? How about Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith? Or should we just stick to the Sermon on the Mount - a passage that is so radical that it's doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application? So before we get carried away, let's read our Bibles. Folks haven't been reading their Bibles."
Our Lord Jesus Christ had warned His disciples about False Christs
"Then if anyone says to you, "Look, here is the Christ!' or "There!' do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. "Therefore if they say to you, "Look, He is in the desert!' do not go out; or "Look, He is in the inner rooms!' do not believe it." (Mt. 24:23-26)
