America Divided Cut

‘I need to protect myself in case there is a civil war’: Why middle-class America is arming up. FIVE (5) million Americans who have purchased their first firearm over the past 12 months, driving what analysts are calling the greatest gun-buying spree in the country’s history.

America Divided Split Cut or Fractured:

Zechariah 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

Mark 3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Luke 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.

Luke 12:53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

The US Government has become politically divided and is in discord and disunity. The political division affecting and splitting America is a direct result of its efforts to ‘divide Jerusalem’ via the ‘Deal of the Century’ or the regional covenant of peace and security in the Middle East. Throughout scripture, God has made it abundantly clear that Jerusalem is the ‘apple of his eye’ and has his stamp of ownership on it … above all other cities on earth. God makes it adequately clear in Zechariah 12:3 that any nation that attempts to cut or divide up Jerusalem, will themselves be cut up or divided. As such, the US is cut or divided politically because of its leadership role in attempting to split God’s Holy City of earthly Jerusalem. Plain and simple.

OK. So it’s clear about the accelerating implosion of political unity in the US. Political discord will get worse and become angrier, antagonistic, confrontational, and hateful with little to no compromise, concession, agreement or unity. Contempt and distrust rules the day. Some would say this is already the case not only between Democrats and Republicans, but also within each party. Whether you believe the US being extremely divided is a result of God’s wrath for its role in dividing Jerusalem or not, it doesn’t matter. The fact remains that the US is becoming bitterly more and more divided. This division has also taken place in culture (LGBTQP+ social inclusiveness agenda), economics (income inequality), etc. The list can go on. America is divided on so many levels, not just politically.

Why is there no mention of the ‘United’ States in Bible Prophecy?

Prophetic Discernment: Seven (7) year ‘book-end’ solar eclipses, August 2017 to April 2024. God’s divine completion to His plan or purpose for the once powerful and great ‘United’ States. Seven (7) spirits affected; Financially, Politically, Militarily, Geographically, Geo-Politically, Spiritually and Socially. 2024 marks the ‘start’ of the final 3.5 years of the tribulation where God PERSONALLY and supernaturally protects Israel in Petra. No further need of the United States to be Israel’s ‘Big Brother’ watching over her and protecting her and giving her financial aid. By the start of 2024, the once ‘United’ States will have descended into anarchy, chaos, rebellion, the bottomless pit, despair, insolvency and strife. And irrelevancy, divide, confusion, bitterness, family against family and against its self, discord and despondency. For 70 (7) years, the United States was Israel’s ‘worldly’ protector and benefactor (1948-2018). For another last seven (7) years, August 2017 to April 2024, America’s ‘Divider in Chief’ and ‘Judas Divider’ spent three (3) intense and emphatic years (July 2017 through July 2020) planning and executing a ‘dividing, splitting, cutting or fracturing of Israel and Jerusalem. For the next and final last four (4) years, in equal parts, America steadily fell apart, literally and figuratively in every area of society. The American ‘millennium or empire’ lasted from 1620 to 2020. 400 years. America has been wandering ‘in the desert’ for 400 years and time has expired. 40(0) is a time or period of ‘trial or testing.’

Matthew 25

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

 ‘I need to protect myself in case there is a civil war’: Why middle-class America is arming up. FIVE (5) million Americans who have purchased their first firearm over the past 12 months, driving what analysts are calling the greatest gun-buying spree in the country’s history.

Brad Vercosa has passed Jimmy’s Sport Shop in Mineola, Long Island countless times, but last Thursday he approached the counter, still in his slippers, to buy his first gun. The construction company owner is one of nearly five million Americans who have purchased their first firearm over the past 12 months, driving what analysts are calling the greatest gun-buying spree in the country’s history.

The seeds were sown with the onset of the pandemic last spring, and grew in response to Black Lives Matter demonstrations and pro-Trump rallies over the summer. But for many of Jimmy Gong’s customers in Mineola – a suburban village 20 miles east of the skyscrapers of Manhattan – the storming of the Capitol by pro-Trump demonstrators on January 6 was the inflection point.

The following day is one of the busiest Gong, 46, can remember, even accounting for a 150 (5+5+5) per cent rise in demand. And he expects business to keep booming. After Donald Trump’s impeachment on Wednesday, the FBI warned of possible armed protests and “domestic terrorism”, amid reports of armed far-Right groups planning to gather at all 50 state capitals and in Washington DC in the run-up to Joe Biden being sworn in as president.

Gong’s customers, by contrast, are a diverse microcosm of suburban New Yorkers, holding middle-class jobs. With its historic courthouse and banqueting halls, Mineola doesn’t look like a hotspot for violence, and Vercosa agrees the local mindset is very different from the gun-toting stereotypes of Texas or the “Wild West”.

So why spend close to a thousand dollars on a 12-gauge shotgun?

“It’s just, you never know,” he says. “The climate that we’re in definitely makes me feel like I should protect myself. There might be a civil war, there might be anything.”

It is the same story outside Guns Direct in Burbank, California, where 21-year-old Elliott Smith is waiting to buy his first firearm. He’d been debating the decision with his family for some time before finally being convinced by the scenes from the Capitol. “It’s just my precautionary tool,” he says. “My personal belief is that I wouldn’t use it unless there was a civil war.”

Behind the counter, James Janya, a 41-year-old former Marine, says he’s noticed an “uptick in customers”, though nothing like the scale of the early days of the pandemic, when lines frequently snaked around the block.

By his estimate, around 80 (8) per cent of customers over the past year have been first-time gun buyers, and the number of women has also sharply increased. “Everybody is scared right now,” he says. “Businesses are closing down. Crime is on the rise. People are saying: ‘Defund the police.’ Well, then who’s going to protect me? That’s why people are buying guns.”

Things are quieter at nearby Burbank Ammo & Guns, which employee Eric Fletcher attributes to record sales in 2020. “I think everyone who was looking to buy a gun has already done it,” says the 34 year-old. “The supply of guns and ammunition is still low because of the extreme demand last year.”

This demand is being driven by both sides of the political spectrum. “We see a diverse mixture, including people who come in wearing clothing that says things like: ‘BLM’ or ‘FTP’ [F— the Police],” says Fletcher.

Down in Austin, Texas, a first-time buyer who asks not to be identified says he’s always found the idea of gun ownership abhorrent – but as a Leftist in a deeply conservative state, he feels increasingly threatened.

“I feel like I didn’t have much of a choice,” he explains. “The people out there who really love guns are now openly talking about killing people like me.”

Indeed, while new gun owners certainly contribute to the record-breaking sales figures, a larger factor may be the stockpiling of guns and ammunition by so-called “super owners.” A study by Harvard and Northeastern University in 2017 indicated that nearly half the guns sold in the US were being purchased by just three per cent of the population.

These are the types who gathered last Saturday at Academy Sports and Outdoors in Austin, an hour before the store opened, queuing in the cold for the chance to buy ammunition, which has been in short supply.

Their faces are obscured by masks, but their hats and bumper stickers indicate Right-wing political affiliations. One wears a shirt with the skull logo from The Punisher – a piece of comic book iconography now associated with extremist groups such as the Three Percenters, which adorned some of the Capitol rioters. Their talk of Biden’s imminent inauguration quickly fades when they realize a journalist has joined them. A manager delivers unwelcome news: “If you’re here for ammo, there’s no truck today,” she says. “It’s like this everywhere I go,” one would-be customer grumbles.

Back in Mineola, during what is usually a quiet hour and a half before closing, Jimmy has sold shotguns, rifles, ammunition and a $2,000 Japanese scimitar. “A gun is becoming more mainstream like buying a car.” he says. “Right now, I think people are in panic mode.”

As we watched the riots at the Capitol in Washington DC on our TV in rural Connecticut, my husband and I shared each other’s disbelief. This year has already been the most dramatic in the decade since leaving Britain for the US.

In our area, the Trump candidate narrowly won in the election. Houses on our road flew MAGA flags and one still has the starred cross of the slave-owning confederacy streaming alongside the Stars and Stripes.

Our area is a mix of working class locals and city dwellers with second homes. As the 6pm curfew was declared in DC, I asked my husband if he thought we would be safe in our beds: would the Trump-supporting townies come for us in the night, the liberal grockels? He reminded me that the Americans in our village are generally courteous and kind and more importantly, law-abiding.

Most households assume their neighbours are armed in rural America, deterring all but the most determined criminals. Guns are a way of life with no demographic divide. Locked into boxes on the back of pickup trucks, kept in safes in the hallway or, in some states, allowed to be openly carried on the person.

The local judge, doctor and architect are as likely to hold a gun license as the farmer or power worker.

Have I considered getting a gun? Yes. A nearby British friend and I spent many hours walking our dogs, discussing the pros and cons. We both knew people from tech, finance and fashion who had guns. When a New York publication carried a story on media folk licensed to “pack heat”, I was astonished at how many city gunslingers I knew.

A friend’s husband tells me he has a hunting rifle, but added: “I wouldn’t tell you if I own or am licensed to carry a handgun… that’s the whole point.”

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
