But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
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.’
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.
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?
Night Watchman Note:
Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man [Jesus Christ] be.
Genesis 7:4 For yet (in) SEVEN (7) days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth. (Emphasis added, mine).
Genesis 7:10 And it came to pass after SEVEN (7) days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth. (Emphasis added, mine).
The United States:
November 1, 2020 – November 7, 2020 (SEVEN – 7 DAYS) Represents a ‘period of 7’ that ushered into power (rightly or wrongly) the current evil leadership displayed in today’s White House. Since the Biden administration has taken over, you can look no further than at its response to Covid-19 Authoritariansim, Abortion, LGBTQ+ Ideology, Increasing Violence in Major Cities, Great Natural Disasters Throughout the ‘United States’, Support For Palestinian Terrorists and the Palestinian Cause …. and so on. So, what is my point? My point is that God, in his Divine Completion to His Purpose or Plan (represented by 7) used the seven (7) days of the US Election to usher in the beginning of His wrath for the United States. This is NOT to say that God was ushering in his wrath for the whole world, although a teacher could make the case that the world began in earnest to begin ‘vaccinating and marking’ a distinction between two ‘classes’ of people, the ‘vaccinated and the unvaccinated.’ There is also a Biblical precedent that God starts with ‘cleaning His own house’ first, before He moves on with judging the heathen. If the largest percentage of Christians in the world still reside in the United States, this would suggest that God is starting his SEVEN (7) year tribulation wrath FIRST with the United States, with the rest of the world following shortly in 2021. I am not dogmatic about this, but it is a ‘discernment’ on my part given how the 40 day flood started out AFTER a SEVEN DAY (7) ‘waiting period’ of sorts. You should also know that ‘40’ represents a period of ‘trial or testing’. Each ‘half’ of the Tribulation represents 42 (4) months (or 3.5 years). Two periods of over 40 months suggests a ‘double’ testing or trial for mankind.
America Divided, Split, Cut, or Fractured and Fighting Itself: It’s Like “The Purge”: Murder Records Are Being Shattered All Over America, And Next Year Could Be Even Worse
December 13, 2021 10:38 pm by IWB Michael Snyder
It is often said that life imitates art, and these days that is particularly true on the mean streets of our major cities. Violent criminals just keep getting more brazen, and murder rates are soaring all over the nation. As you will see below, one official in Los Angeles is actually comparing what is now happening to a horror movie that came out a number of years ago called “The Purge”. But in that movie, violent criminals only had one night each year to run wild. Unfortunately, in America today they are running wild every single night.
Perhaps some of you think that I am exaggerating, and so let’s look at some hard numbers.
At this point, there are 12 large U.S. cities that have already broken their all-time murder records for an entire year…
At least 12 (6+6) major U.S. cities have broken annual homicide records in 2021 (= ‘5’) — and there’s still three weeks to go in the year.
Of the dozen cities that have already surpassed the grim milestones for killings, five (5) topped records that were set or tied just last year.
“It’s terrible to every morning get up and have to go look at the numbers and then look at the news and see the stories. It’s just crazy. It’s just crazy and this needs to stop,” Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said after his city surpassed its annual homicide record of 500 (5), which stood since 1990.
The 12 cities that have already established brand new records in 2021 are Philadelphia, St. Paul, Portland, Indianapolis, Tucson, Louisville, Toledo, Baton Rouge, Austin, Columbus, Rochester and Albuquerque.
And with more than half of December still remaining, more cities will be joining that list by the time the year is finally over.
In Los Angeles, violent crime numbers are going up so fast that it is difficult to believe that the figures are actually real…
The LAPD reports that in the first 24 weeks of 2021, reports of shots fired were up almost 50% (5) percent. The number of people wounded by gun violence was up 50 (5) percent and homicides were up over 25 (5×5) percent.
The environment in the city has completely changed. During a recent television interview, the head of the LA Police Protective League warned tourists not to come to his city this holiday season…
“My message to anyone thinking about coming to Los Angeles, especially during the holiday season, is don’t,” Jamie McBride, the head of the LA Police Protective League, the union representing LAPD officers, said in a television interview.
What a thing to say.
McBride went on to compare current conditions in Los Angeles to “The Purge”…
“We can’t guarantee your safety. It is really, really out of control. I said it to people before, it’s like that movie ‘Purge,’ you know, instead of 24 hours to commit your crime, these people have 365 days to commit whatever they want,” McBride said.
This isn’t some random guy on the Internet saying this.
This is the head of the union that represents police officers in Los Angeles.
Crime is so out of control in L.A. that even people that don’t like guns are arming themselves. The following comes from a New York Post article entitled “Beverly Hills residents arming themselves with guns in wake of violence”…
“I’ve always been anti-gun,” said Debbie Mizrahie of Beverly Hills. “But I am right now in the process of getting myself shooting lessons because I now understand that there may be a need for me to know how to defend myself and my family. We’re living in fear.”
Of course things aren’t much different in northern California.
In fact, an atmosphere of “lawlessness” is seemingly everywhere in San Francisco at this point…
2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
The pandemic emptied parts of San Francisco and highlighted some of its drawbacks: human and dog feces smeared across sidewalks, home and vehicle break-ins, overflowing trash cans, and a laissez-faire approach by officials to brazen drug dealing. Parents despaired as public schools stayed closed for most of last year as nearby districts welcomed children back to the classroom.
Meanwhile, residents and visitors scurry past scenes of lawlessness and squalor. Just steps from the Opera House and Symphony Hall, drug dealers carry translucent bags filled with crystal-like rocks or stand outside the public library’s main branch, flashing wads of cash while peddling heroin and methamphetamine.
It should come as no surprise to learn that the number of people that died from drug overdoses in San Francisco last year was nearly three times as high as the number that died from COVID.
During normal times, we rely on the police to protect us from lawless criminals, but in America today the police are under siege.
I really like how Heather Mac Donald recently made this point…
“I can tell you across the country in the United States today, when cops get out of their car to make an inquiry, to question somebody who’s acting like he’s pulling up his gun out of his waistband, to go into a drug set, they find themselves routinely surrounded by hostile jeering crowds throwing things at them,” she said. “They’re assaulted.”
“This is what it’s like to be a cop in America today,” she added.
Every single day, police officers put their lives on the line when they go to work.
314 police officers have been shot so far in 2021, and the final number for this year will inevitably be even higher.
Meanwhile, the mainstream media and many groups on the left continue to relentlessly demonize the police, and this is driving good people out of the profession in record numbers…
A workforce survey released in June by the Police Executive Research Forum found the retirement rate in police departments nationwide jumped 45% over 2020 and 2021. And another 18% of officers resigned, the survey found, a development which coincided with nationwide social justice protests and calls to defund law enforcement agencies following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers.
As the trends that I have discussed in this article continue to escalate, it is likely that 2022 (= ‘6’) will be even worse.
But before I end this article, I want to make a very important point.
The worst criminals in America are not the violent thugs in our streets.
Often, the worst criminals dress in suits and walk the halls of power. For example, just check out what a CNN producer was just charged with doing…
The CNN producer charged with luring a mother and her nine-year-old daughter to a rental home in Vermont for ‘sexual subservience’ training also told someone else he’d ‘trained’ girls as young as seven.
John Griffin, a producer on CNN’s New Day and worked for Chris Cuomo, was charged last week by federal prosecutors in Vermont who say he paid for sex with underage girls, including one whose mother he convinced into letting her visit him.
Needless to say, his case in not an isolated incident.
In all my years, I have never seen such utter lawlessness in America.
And if you have read my most recent book, then you know that I believe that things are going to be getting a lot worse.
Just about every form of evil that you can possibly imagine is exploding in our society, and our country has now become unrecognizable.
Decades of incredibly bad decisions have brought us to this point, and the years ahead are going to be more chaotic than most people would dare to imagine. (2022-2027 = ‘5’)
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.

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

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

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).
