Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and POWER was ‘GIVEN’ him (Prince, Beast, Antichrist) over ALL kindreds, and tongues, and NATIONS.

The Antichrist; ‘A King of Dark Sentences’ (political language, false agreements, deceiving covenants, lies, back-room dealing, deception, intrigue, announcements and deceiving doctrines and programs.)

23 “ And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” (Daniel 8:23-25)

The burning question is (7) how does a nation survive when its (7) Constitution is surrounded by circumstances never before (7) contemplated by the founding fathers or anyone (7) else. And truth, fact and the political (7) process are under simultaneous attack provoked by (7) a deeply and possibly irreversibly divided nation (7) on almost every issue, great or small. (7777777 7×7

(7) The Fall of America Starts from Within; (7) How to Escape ‘the Worst Possible Timeline’ (7) The Cultural Downfall of American Society Today.

Tara Isabella Burton The Atlantic

The government is paralyzed by toxic polarization. Our economic and social systems make the rich richer and keep the poor poorer. Marginalized groups continue to fight against centuries of systemic injustices. A pandemic has killed more than 1 million Americans. Meanwhile, preventable “deaths of despair”—including suicide and deaths related to substance abuse—are on the riseFewer and fewer people are choosing to have children, citing not only economic concerns but moral ones: How could anyone bring an infant into a world as benighted by cruelty and injustice as this one? The thinking goes like this: The inevitable march of climate change will probably wipe out humanity, anyway. At least, if artificial intelligence doesn’t get there first.

This dismal assessment of America’s prospects feels inescapable in some circles right now.

“Cultural pessimism is more widespread and much more public than it used to be,” Rhys Williams, a Loyola University Chicago sociologist who specializes in the relationship between politics, religion, and social movements in America, told me.

[Read: Why the past 10 years of American life have been uniquely stupid]

The posture of broad doomerism can feel like a natural response to the major events of the 21st century so far. At times, it can even feel socially expected. After all, how could any reasonable person look at economic strife and racial injustice and mass death and not feel despair?

But part of cultural pessimism’s pervasiveness comes from the fact that it’s self-reinforcing, as a highly marketable narrative of despair that sells resigned inaction (to say nothing of scented candles, bath bubbles, and other products meant to soothe). To break out of the spiral of doom requires not just practical social change, but also a collective reimagining of what the world can be.

It’s possible to treat our collective pessimism not as a function of “the worst possible timeline,” to quote an ubiquitous meme derived from the TV show Community, but rather a natural corollary of our distinctly American optimism: our tradition of idealistic cultural narratives that things ought to be better than they are. If the technological and economic improvements that have marked so much of modern life have allowed us to question—and even become angry about—areas where we perceive work yet to be done, then we’re simply participating in a long-standing American tradition of working toward perfection in an imperfect world.

Such a framework doesn’t lead automatically to social change, of course. But it can provide a compelling collective vision, and hope, for the best of societal ideas. And it can help lead to the kind of social culture necessary for any kind of change to occur—that is, an environment where individuals have both the opportunity and the desire to organize with members of their community in pursuit of collective gain.

This mindset change might seem a long way off. According to one bipartisan NBC study from early 2023, 71 percent of Americans say we’re on the wrong track as a country—the eighth time in the past nine quarters that this survey percentage has crossed 70 percent, marking the longest period of severe American pessimism since polling began more than 30 years ago.

But why now? America has been through public crises before and emerged with greater levels of trust and hope. Just think of October 6, 2001, less than a month after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, when public trust in government reached its highest level since before the Nixon administration. Or March 2004, at the dawn of the Iraq War, when a full 71 percent of Americans expressed approval of George W. Bush’s presidency.

So, what’s changed? One strain of answer—recently expressed by Jonathan Haidt and Greg Lukianoff, who wrote The Coddling of the American Mind (which originated in this magazine)—is that the rise of social-justice language, and our increased cultural focus on problems as entrenched and systemic—has conditioned the American public, particularly on the left, to see themselves as helpless victims, unable to effect change. As evidence, Lukianoff and Haidt point to a recent study in SSM—Mental Health that suggested both an increase in self-reported mental-health issues among teenagers, dating back to 2012, and a marked disparity between the mental health of young liberals and young conservatives.

The “wokeness has made us weak” narrative overlooks the degree to which both the rise of social-justice discourse and an ever-more-pervasive sense of cultural pessimism are downstream of a wider phenomenon: an ubiquitous sense of alienation from the foundational mythos of the “American dream” and—no less vitally—from one another. Just as the years since the 2008 financial crisis have shaken our cultural conviction that virtuous hard work leads to economic stability, so, too, has the social-media era transformed our shared political life into a source of alienating infotainment, monetized by the demands of the attention economy. (The rise in depression covered by the Mental Health study also correlates with the increased availability of smartphones and social media for teenagers.)

[Read: The age of social media is ending]

“Social media has pulled back the curtains a bit on institutions and the elites who run them and afforded a rather unflattering view of what goes on behind the scenes,” the Yale sociology professor Philip Gorski told me—“things that in the years of three broadcast-news channels and no national newspapers would never really have penetrated in the public consciousness.” Ordinary social-media users had access, for example, to information about the early failings of the CDC to issue functional COVID-19 tests in early 2020, during the crucial first few weeks of the coronavirus pandemic.

Meanwhile, Gorski says, fewer and fewer of us are getting to know the people around us at all. He cited “the gradual decline of voluntary association” in America, as fewer and fewer of us attend religious services, belong to community organizations, or even have close friends. And he said that most Americans “are very unlikely to encounter people who are very much unlike them, much less to come to trust them.” Even if they do, Gorski told me, our political and civic lives have become so self-segregated that “the odds that they’ll really encounter somebody significantly different from them along any number of dimensions is just so much lower than it used to be.”

Williams, of Loyola University Chicago, agreed, saying that today “preexisting communities of solidarity or communities of memory are more difficult to form.” And without real-life, in-person social interactions—particularly with those who don’t share our ideological priors or identities—we struggle more and more to envision the kinds of necessary societal changes that require not just individual but collective action.

“What we’re seeing,” says Musa al-Gharbi, a doctoral student at Columbia University and the author of the forthcoming book We Have Never Been Woke: Social Justice Discourse, Inequality and the Rise of a New Elite, “is this self-reinforcing negative cycle.” He also calls it a “doom loop” where “cynicism and despair can often encourage nihilism” or there are “people taking cosmetically radical symbolic positions because they don’t do anything, practically speaking.” Cynicism “encourages those kinds of behaviors, which can erode public trust, which can further undermine our capacity to actually achieve change, reinforcing our sense of pessimism.” The academic language of the systemic—a term with specific social-justice applications—has morphed into a wider sense that the system is so rigged that we might as well not bother doing anything at all. If cultural despair is evidence of the gap between ideals and reality, today’s pessimism suggests that the gap feels unbridgeable.

Such a reading might also account for why young liberals seem to report so much more depression than their conservative counterparts. “The expectation versus experience is really the key,” Williams said.

One easy reading of such a mindset might be that progressive idealism is inherently bad for our mental health—expecting grand change can only lead to depression and failure. But the role that expectations play in our sense of contentment also invites us to consider ourselves not as potential dwellers in our end-stage utopia but rather as participants in an unfinished—and perhaps unfinishable—journey toward a more just world. It is a journey that is worth undertaking for its own sake, rather than because we believe results are imminent. We can expect less while still hoping—and working—for more.

Such a mindset shift might help people better reframe their own despair: If someone is dissatisfied, it’s because that person can envision how much better our society could be. But to get there, suggests Cece Jones-Davis, an activist and author who lectures frequently on effective organizing, we have to learn once more to live and work with one another, in communities that require us to lay aside our personal narratives and preferences. We have, in other words, to start small: focusing on achievable local concerns, rather than grand national narratives.

“Once we … bring all the things that we think about every issue in the world” to the table, Jones-Davis said in a telephone interview, “then things fall apart.” Conversely, she said, “when you start small, you’re having smaller circles, smaller conversations; you’re getting to know people; you’re building trust among groups … and everybody starts to get to know everybody.” By forging human relationships at a sustainable scale—and by mobilizing those relationships toward the common good—we can develop pathways toward change.

The doom spiral of cultural pessimism can best be combated by—as internet parlance has it—“touching grass”: encountering human beings in the kind of real-life social situations where change, however small or modest in scale, is possible. That kind of in-person work can help to turn our collective disillusionment into an engine of hope, a reminder that our present disappointments are inextricable from a belief that a better world is something we owe to ourselves—and to one another.

(7) America is NOT mentioned in the Bible. Why? Discernment.

America (5) Divided, Split, Cut, or Fractured and Separated into FIVE ‘5’ Pieces:

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.

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 New Madrid Fault Line and Impending Doom. Pastor Robert Breaker

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.

Dream about an earthquake on the New Madrid A 10.0. Devastation everywhere

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. 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). 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.’

Earthquake (7) in the Middle of the ‘Untied’ States

Watchman Mr. Greg Laurie ‘All the More Urgent’ Monday, January 18, 2021

“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?

Two Choices Before Us Tuesday, July 4, 2023 Greg Laurie
No country lasts forever. Rome once was the reigning superpower on earth, with the most powerful military anywhere. But before Rome collapsed externally, it collapsed internally. In The Complete Story of Civilization Historian Will Durant said of Rome, “A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself within. The essential causes of Rome’s decline lay in her people, her morals, her class struggle, her failing trade, her bureaucratic despotism, her stifling taxes, her consuming wars.” The difference between Rome and the United States is that we initially built this nation on a Judeo-Christian foundation. But we have strayed dramatically from the original vision of our Founding Fathers that produced this place we call the United States of America. I think we would do well to look at the soul of our nation right now. What once was freedom of religion seems to have become freedom from religion.

Our society has succeeded in getting God out of our schools, out of our sporting events, out of our public places, and out of our workplaces. But here’s what we need to remember. The freedom we enjoy today is built on the foundation of absolute truth. And when you remove that foundation, this freedom actually can turn into anarchy. People in our nation are saying they don’t like the idea of things that are right and things that are wrong. They don’t want to live by those standards anymore. Instead, they want to live according to moral relativism so they can choose their own truths. The United States of America, like every other nation on earth, has its days numbered. We need divine intervention. We need God’s help. My belief about the future of our nation is that we have two choices before us: one is judgment and the other is revival. If we do not have revival, then I think judgment is inevitable.

But how can they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save them unless they believe in him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they believe in him (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear about him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” Romans 10:14

. . . “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.

. . . “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).
