America Divided Cut

America Divided, Split, Cut or Fractured; 12 (6+6) Factors That Are Causing Our Nation to Crumble

America Divided, Split, Cut, or Fractured and Fighting Itself:

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:

Night Watchman Note (2017) Chapter 45 (Excerpt); Ezekiel 38-39 gives us a ‘CLUE’ as to why there is only a very small indirect reference to the US.

Israel appears defenseless (or is it?). The United States (under President Donald Trump) is pulling out of Syria and the Middle East. No major world power is on the scene or in the region to help protect Israel in any regional conflict or sizeable threat. Israel appears to be “easy pickings” to Russia/Iran/Turkey. Israel stands by itself, alone and literally against major world powers and armies.  Israel has to defend itself, it can’t benefit from any other ally coming to its aid (or can it?). Why is the United States mysteriously omitted or missing from this worldwide-centered event unfolding in the Middle East? Why doesn’t the United States come to the aid of one its closest allies? The United States is either unable or unwilling in coming to aid Israel’s defense. Possibilities include that a new president (Biden) is at the helm and is neutral towards Israel. Another possibility is that the United States is caught off guard by the sudden attack on Israel. Russia, Turkey and Iran in Syria is nothing new, geographically speaking. The U.S. is aware of this, even as it pulls out of Syria and the region.  The third possibility is the rapture of the Christian Church, and of Christians in the military ranks of the United States are gone (Rapture imminent? Be watching and waiting!). There is no mention whatsoever of the Church or Bride of Christ in Ezekiel 38-39.  As mechanized and electronically controlled as warfare is, people are still needed to make decisions, follow orders and ‘push buttons.’ Rockets, missiles, and artillery rounds don’t fire themselves, someone has to push a button to fire them. Someone has to take the order to fire them. Planes don’t fly themselves, someone has to fly them. Aircraft carriers and supporting carrier groups and flotillas require human coordination and planning. This can’t be automated. A carrier group from the U.S. can’t make it across the Atlantic theater and to the Mediterranean by itself. There is no U.S. presence in the Middle East.

The U.S., like Saudi Arabia, can only stand by and watch this movement come against Israel. Likewise, the U.S. complains and questions Gog/Magog’s motive for coming against Israel. Up until this point, politically and militarily, Russia was/is not viewed as an enemy or threat to Israel. All of a sudden, why does it look like Russia is going to invade Israel? Why all the troops and supporting supplies and equipment being brought near into Syria? The world views Russia’s move against Israel as a shocking surprise, not knowing Russia’s/Putin’s intent. Russia/Putin wanting to take Israel’s newest, prized possession worth $Trillions (a great spoil) by military force? Who heard of such a thing?! What idea got into Putin’s head? What is he thinking? Where did he get that idea? This prophecy is not about the United States. It is about Israel and God turning his attention back to Israel and coming to her defense against the gang of three bullies and their tag-along opportunists, cronies and toadies. As long as President Trump is in office, it is unlikely that his support of Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel will weaken. It is unlikely that the U.S. would do nothing to help Israel against her enemies. It is also unlikely the U.S. would be caught off guard by the impending forces on Israel. It is not hard to monitor a one million soldier army headed in one direction or another. In the event that the U.S. becomes aware of this threat, it could take considerable time for a carrier task force group to arrive in the Mediterranean Sea and perhaps arrive too late to help its ally. In any event, the U.S. just issues a rebuke thrown towards the Gog/Magog alliance. What is the likelihood for the rapture? No one knows. No one would be around to man (or woman) the ships and rudders, or fly the planes off of the carrier strike force.

Ezekiel 38:13

Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

Dedan = Ancient Saudi Arabia, Merchants of Tarshish are believed to be the ancient traders from European areas. ‘Young Lions’ are believed the ‘colonial-spinoffs’ from European economies, hence the ‘United’ States, Canada, Australia and so forth. This is the ‘best’ reference the Bible gives us to the US, and admittedly, it is a very indirect reference. It appears that God’s word is deliberate in omitting any reference to the US in Jesus’ Book of Revelation. This is agreed upon and confirmed by most eschatologists.

Consider what another Watchman discerns. Monday, January 18, 2021

Watchman Mr. Greg Laurie ‘All the More Urgent’

“This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11 NLT).

I think we could make a very good case for finding Russia in Bible prophecy. I think we could make a pretty good case for finding China in Bible prophecy. And we certainly could make an airtight case for finding Iran in Bible prophecy—and Israel as well. But we cannot find the United States of America.

How is it that the reigning superpower on the planet today doesn’t seem to be mentioned?

No one knows the answer, but let’s consider an option. What if the Rapture were to take America out of its lead role?

There are approximately 328.2 million people in the United States. For the sake of illustration, I’ll round that number to 300 million. I don’t know how many are followers of Christ, but I read recently that 65 percent of Americans identify as Christians.

To be very conservative, let’s say that 10 percent of the people in the United States of America are Christians. Now, imagine for a moment what would happen if 30 million people (or more) suddenly were to leave Planet Earth in the Rapture—people who work in industries, government, the military, and every area imaginable.

Do you think that would affect our nation?

Of course it would. Effectively, America would collapse overnight.

I don’t know the reason our nation isn’t mentioned in Bible prophecy, but I do know this: Jesus Christ is returning. The Bible says, “This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11 NLT).

If you’re a believer who’s living a compromised life, you need to repent and get right with God. And if you don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ, then you’ve got to wake up and get right with God. Wake up. Jesus is coming. Are you ready?

America Divided, Split, Cut or Fractured; 12 (6+6) Factors That Are Causing Our Nation to Crumble

Dr. Roger BarrierPreach It, Teach It 2016 31 March Cross Walk

Dear Roger,

I am concerned about the degeneration of values and morals in America. It makes me afraid for the future of our country. What factors cause a society to crumble?

Sincerely, Concerned

Dear Concerned,

Your question reminds me of the haunting refrain in the book of Judges: “Once again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord.”

From the beginning of Judges to the end of the book, a three generational cycle plays out again and again. 

Our United States is a reflection of the threefold cycle of Judges.

The first generation fights the battles (the builder generation).

The second generation enjoys the rewards (the boomer generation).

The third generation gives it all back (the Gen X and millennial generations).

The one difference between the United States and the cycles of the book of Judges is that at the end of each three-fold cycle the last generation repents and returns to God. He forgives the nation and once again a new cycle commences.

As the United States reaches the end of cycle three, we will wait and see whether the nation returns to God in a way that once again establishes us as a godly nation.

“The people served the Lord throughout the lifetime of Joshua and of the elders who outlived him and who had seen all the great things the Lord had done for Israel… After that whole generation had died, another generation grew up, who knew nothing of the Lord nor what he had done for Israel… Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals… In his anger against Israel the Lord handed them over to raiders who plundered them” (Judges: 2:7-14).

“Again the Israelites cried out to the Lord, and he delivered them” (Judges 3:5).

There is a startling parallel between the reasons for the fall of the Roman Empire and the corresponding issues in our country today.

The fall was not precipitated by one or two problems. There were multiple causes over 500 (5) years.

Why Rome Fell and the Parallel Issues Simmering Now in the United States (‘400’ years, 1620-2020)

1. Fighting between the Senate and the Emperor 

Think about the gridlock between the Republican Congress and president Obama regarding budgets and healthcare.

2. Over Expansion

Think about illegal aliens; Nicaraguan and Middle-Eastern refugees.

3. Weak Leadership 

Think about our president drawing a line in the sand of US intervention if the Syrian government used chemical weapons on Syrian rebels; the Syrian government crossed the line used the chemicals and we backed down and did nothing.

4. Declining Morals 

Think about the proliferation of unethical business activity on Wall Street, the rejection of the Judeo-Christian ethic, and violence in the film industry.

5. Welfare 

Think about how 50% (5) of the population works to support the rest of the people in our country.

6. Political Corruption

Think about campaign finance laws and gerrymandering both of which are all designed to keep the current officials in office; consider the lobbying organizations.

7. Constant Wars and Declining Military Power

Think about Korea, Vietnam, Nicaragua, Granada, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Lebanon; decry the artificial “rules of engagement” that unilaterally send our soldiers into battle with one hand tied behind their backs.

8. Unemployment 

Think about the thousands and thousands of people who would work if they could but can’t find a job; many end up on welfare.

9. Failing Economy 

Think trade agreements with foreign nations guaranteed to increase our deficit; think of stagnant and shrinking wages.

10. Crime and Violence

Think about racial unrest, gang violence, and rioting in the streets. 

11. Public Health Decline

Think about Three Mile Island and Flint Michigan water pollution; think about no health care for the poor.

12. Christianity 

Some have suggested that Christianity made many Roman citizens into pacifists, thus making it more difficult to recruit soldiers in order to defend against the barbarian attackers.

What can we do to arrest the decline and help restore out nation to health?

1. We can pray.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Please note that God never asks the unbelievers in our country to pray. This is the responsibility of us Christians. 

2. We can get involved in politics. 

We must actively involve ourselves in the political process since this is how we best change the direction of our country. 

We must not be shy from stepping into the political fray. We must lead the way in using the political process to make the changes necessary to heal our country and to restore it to good health.

3. We can love like Jesus loved.

We must be known as the people who love God and love others once again. Our love for each other is the springboard for reaching out in love to our world. Love changes people. Love changes things.

4. We can support and encourage the leaders of our country. 

Our political leaders are in the best position to make the changes and rearrangements needed to redirect and restore our country.

I hope that I have both put some light on the subject and given you a few suggestions as to what you can do to help save our nation.

Love, Roger

8 References to ‘BE WATCHING or WATCHFUL.’ ‘8’ indicates that a new ‘era or epoch’ is arriving. Be it the rapture, the tribulation, the year of the Jews redemption or the year of the onset (2028) of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ (2028-3028).

Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.

Luke 21:36; Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

7 Verses to be ‘WATCHING, WATCHFUL and FAITHFUL.’

1 Thessalonians 5:2-4; For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. (Be Watching and Faithful).

John 13:19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.

John 14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

Luke 21:31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

Mark 13:29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: (Watch for that which will come to pass or occur, as I said it would.)

‘Increasing Like Labor Pains.’ ‘Fearful Sights.’ ‘Perilous Times.’ ‘Men’s hearts failing with fear.’ Great Convergence of Signs.’ REDEMPTION IMMINENT.

Make Your Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

 Romans 5:8-10. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Romans 12:19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Jeremiah 30:7. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
