Once upon a time, middle class households took home 62 percent of all income in America. Today, that number has dropped to just 43 percent. This is just one of the absolutely astounding statistics that you will read about in this article. Over the years, the middle class in America has been in steady decline. Our incomes have been going down, our net worth has been going down, the quality of our jobs has been going down, and yet the cost of living just keeps going up. As a result of all of these factors, more Americans are living in poverty today than ever before, and dependence on the government has exploded to unprecedented levels.
Imagine the world with no rules, accountability, or consequences for evil actions? This image is one where people take a life with no remorse. It is a place where life savings are greedily stolen, women and children are abandoned, and even basic respect that was afforded to a mother and father is absent. This place of our worst imaginings is one fraught with lawless, heartless, and treacherous people who are concerned with no one but themselves. That would be a world where the concept of love is foreign, while brutality, slander, and darkness become the norm. This is not a description of total societal, economic, or geopolitical breakdown sometime in the distant future. It is an accurate analysis of condition of our world at this moment. This is how a majority of people are living life. These are the direct results of one fact: Godlessness is reaching epidemic proportions.
Well, Josh, the US mainstream media has for all intents and purposes made Obama king. Concerned Americans say we are starting to resemble a banana republic (with a dishonest government ignoring laws). The MSM aggressively promotes whatever Obama wants the public to know, and blocks what he does not.
America cannot survive this blatant demonism in the heart of New York.
It was certainly no random decision to light up the Empire State building with the face of Kali; a powerful and ruthless demon goddess of Hinduism. I will show the reader that the face of Kali just weeks after the heartbreaking videos of Planned Parenthood is a mockery by the devil in the faces of the people of America. And the timing was no coincidence.
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Ephesians 6:12).
A resounding question asked by many today is, "Where is America in Biblical prophecy?" The simple answer is that our nation will still exist during the Great Tribulation period, but our military power and socio-economic position will have been diminished to the level of a godless, base nation. For many years this was a hard reality for many American believers to grasp because in many ways it was so hard to see! But by faith in God's Word we knew it must be!
Beginning with the Supreme Court's ban on nondenominational school prayer in 1962, the same-sex marriage decision has essentially completed the state's secularization of American society. This is one thing about which both right and left, religious and secular, can agree. One side may rejoice over the fact, and the other may weep, but it is a fact.
And what has replaced Judaism, Christianity, Judeo-Christian values and the Bible?
The answer is: feelings. More and more Americans rely on feelings to make moral decisions. The heart has taken the place of the Bible.
The presidency of Barack Obama is the latest example of the accuracy of this observation, since the American people have been granted a last chance, before it is too late, to reverse course as a window has been forced open for the citizenry to view what future will bring if the nation remains on its present course.
Franklin Graham has been outspoken about the judgment of God in the wake of the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling.
Now, he's quoting Scripture—and one dissenting Supreme Court justice—in his latest comments about the misuse of the rainbow: "Pride goeth before a fall."
Even those who consider themselves "Christian" will continue to stray from right doctrine, he said, choosing instead to blend in with the ways of Western culture.
He said the world has entered what the apostle Paul called the "falling away" or the apostasy. This period, which marks the beginning of the "end of the age" and the soon return of Jesus Christ, will be similar to the period at the beginning of the age, when pagan Rome viciously persecuted the followers of Jesus.
"Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people." (Prov. 14:34 NIV)
America is no longer a righteous people seeking God. We are instead a nation guilty of rampant sin, including homosexuality – the one sin that, when generally accepted as normal by society, indicates a nation is about to be destroyed. Overall, we are a nation of depravity, delusion, and soon destruction. These signs indicate we are now a post-Christian.
What's happened to bring us to this point?
