HERE IS WHY JUDGMENT IS COMING!
The people have rebelled and turn against God Almighty! Destruction is coming because America has forsaken the Lord. The people are worshiping false gods of Baal, Molech and the starry hosts. Even the priests (the Church) are mixing pagan practices with faith in God. The Body of Christ has become polytheistic, worshiping the Lord and all the other gods of the land. God’s punishment for sin is on the way.
The LORD said, “It is because they have forsaken my law, which I set before them; they have not obeyed me or followed my law. Instead, they have followed the stubbornness of their hearts; they have followed the Baals, as their fathers taught them.” Therefore, this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “See, I will make this people eat bitter food and drink poisoned water. I will scatter them among nations that neither they nor their fathers have known, and I will pursue them with the sword until I have destroyed them.” Jeremiah 9:13-16
Baal worship: is giving free-reign to the carnal nature. It expresses itself in gluttony, drunkenness and sinful sexual acts such as:
Adultery: Sexual act with a person other than your spouse.
Fornication/Whoredom: sexual acts between unmarried persons for pleasure or profit.
Illegal sexual acts between close relatives.
Gluttony: excess in eating or drinking and/or greedy or excessive indulgence.
Drunkenness: given to habitual excessive use of alcohol.
What does the modern day worship of Baal resemble?
Extreme liberalism of child sacrifice (abortion); sexual immorality (sex outside marriage, pro-homosexual agenda promoting same-sex marriage and militant “gay rights”) and radical environmental policies (which promote reverence of the creation rather than the creator). These are the some of the false Gods America is worshipping. Our current elected leaders and judges are passing laws mocking God. A judge recently overturned Prop 8 and you have Governor Schwarzenegger calling for same-sex weddings to resume .
Some priests and pastors are pushing “social justice” and whitewashing the deception taking place in our culture or choosing to remain silent on these issues and are leading their flocks astray. Many have exchanged God’s truth for Satan’s lies.
ABORTION is one of the modern day forms of worshiping the false god of Molech. While we do not worship the physical idol of Molech, we practice humanism, in putting ourselves as the final judge between what is right or wrong. To this ‘Molech’, we sacrifice our children for our own benefit by aborting countless innocent souls. God’s Word states, in Jeremiah 2:34, “Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.” No one has the right to take a human life except the Creator.
These six things the Lord hates, indeed, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look [the spirit that makes one overestimate himself and underestimate others], a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that manufactures wicked thoughts and plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who breathes out lies [even under oath], and he who sows discord among his brethren. Proverbs 6:16-19 (AMP)
“Whoever accepts money to kill an innocent person will be cursed.” Then all the people will say amen. Deuteronomy 27:25 (GWT)
Many will argue that life does not start at conception. This is a lie from the pit of hell! How can all the days for us be written before one of them came to be if life does not start at conception?
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. “
Furthermore, John the Baptist jumped for joy in his mother’s womb when he was a fetus of six months. How can a fetus jump in his mother’s womb if he doesn’t have a spirit? How can the Holy Spirit enter a fetus without a soul? Furthermore, according to this Scripture the baby knew joy. If a baby can feel joy, it is aware of its environment.
“And at that time Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country to a town of Judah, And she went to the house of Zachariah and, entering it, saluted Elizabeth. And it occurred that when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit. And she cried out with a loud cry, and then exclaimed, Blessed (favored of God) above all other women are you! And blessed (favored of God) is the Fruit of your womb! And how [have I deserved that this honor should] be granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, the instant the sound of your salutation reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.”
Luke 1:39-49 (AMP)
If you voted President Obama into office or support legislation for abortion in anyway, you are an accomplice in this abomination to the Lord and need to repent. If you in anyway had a part in an abortion the same holds true. Not opposing or remaining silent renders the same verdict in the eyes of the Lord–GUILTY. An analogy of this is being the driver of the car which is used for a bank robbery. Even though you didn’t actually rob the bank, you are guilty by association.
Abortion is murder and we embrace this irreprehensible act against God our Creator. President Obama promised to reduce abortions. Yet he wasted no time in following his pro-abortion agenda by surrounding himself with those individuals that support abortion. You can research this yourself by reading an article written by Steven Ertelt, Editor at LifeNews.com titled, President Barack Obama’s Pro-Abortion Record: A Pro-Life Compilationat http://www.lifenews.com/obamaabortionrecord.html.
STARRY HOSTS: ASTROLOGY AND THE OCCULT
A growing number of people including Christians have been influenced by astrology as they seek spiritual guidance. We are to worship the Creator, not the created. These individuals tend to have a low view of Scripture. If Scripture is used to discern truth it is misinterpreted or twisted to suit their worldview. Unfortunately, many are being deceived into this alluring pastime which opens the door to demonic influence.
People who have a “worldview” usually have some of the following viewpoints:
Have a metaphysical relationship between mankind and the planets.Possess a pragmatic (practical) view of life.Have an amoral view of life which means they are neither moral nor immoral; specifically lying outside the sphere to which moral judgments apply. Man decides what is right and wrong in his universe. There is no other authority for morality.They have a pantheistic view which condones the worship of all gods of different creeds, cults, or peoples indifferently. They tolerate the worship of all gods.Possess a polytheistic view of deity in that they believe in or worship more than one god.
Divination has long been a key element in the occult world.
Divination: the art of foretelling future events, or discovering things secret or obscure, by the aid of superior beings.
Some forms of divination include:
Ø Tarot card readings
Ø Saxon wands (similar to I Ching)
Ø Cheiromancy (palmistry)
Ø Tea-leaf reading
Ø Astrology – horoscopes
Ø Magic (i.e. Harry Potter)
Let’s see what God’s word has to say about divination.
“Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire (Molech worship) , who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you.”
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (NIV)
“Do not turn to mediums orseek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.” Leviticus 19:31 (NIV)
”And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who prophesy, and say to those who prophesy out of their own mind and heart, Hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit [and things they have not seen] and have seen nothing! O Israel, your prophets have been like foxes among ruins and in waste places. You have not gone up into the gaps or breeches, nor built up the wall for the house of Israel that it might stand in the battle in the day of the Lord. They have seen falsehood and lying divination, saying, The Lord says; but the Lord has not sent them. Yet they have hoped and made men to hope for the confirmation of their word. Have you not seen a false vision and have you not spoken a lying divination when you say, The Lord says, although I have not spoken? Therefore thus says the Lord God: Because you have spoken empty, false, and delusive words and have seen lies, therefore behold, I am against you, says the Lord God.
And My hand shall be against the prophets who see empty, false, and delusive visions and who give lying prophecies. They shall not be in the secret council of My people, nor shall they be recorded in the register of the house of Israel, nor shall they enter into the land of Israel; and you shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord God.
Because, even they have seduced My people, saying, Peace, when there is no peace, and because when one builds a [flimsy] wall, behold, [these prophets] daub it over with whitewash, (The Lord’s judgment will come and the pastor’s from the pulpit are not teaching the whole gospel and preparing their sheep BUT they are leading their sheep astray).
Say to them who daub it with whitewash that it shall fall! There shall be a downpour of rain; and you, O great hailstones, shall fall, and a violent wind shall tear apart [the whitewashed, flimsy wall. (The Lord will bring down those churches who just tell the people what they want to hear…the message that everything is fine, when it is not.)
Behold, when the wall is fallen, will you not be asked, Where is the coating with which you [prophets] daubed it? Therefore thus says the Lord God: I will even rend it with a stormy wind in My wrath, and there shall be an overwhelming rain in My anger and great hailstones in wrath to destroy [that wall]. So will I break down the wall that you have daubed with whitewash and bring it down to the ground, so that its foundations will be exposed; when it falls, you will perish and be consumed in the midst of it. And you will know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord.
Thus will I accomplish My wrath upon the wall and upon those who have daubed it with whitewash, and I will say to you, The wall is no more, neither are they who daubed it, The [false] prophets of Israel (America) who prophesied deceitfully about Jerusalem, seeing visions of peace for her when there is no peace, says the Lord God. (The corporate church does not see the coming judgment of God and are preaching messages that all is well when it is not!).
And you, son of man, set your face against the daughters of your people who prophesy out of [the wishful thinking of] their own minds and hearts; prophesy against them, And say, Thus says the Lord God: Woe to the women who sew pillows to all armholes and fasten magic, protective charms to all wrists, and deceptive veils upon the heads of those of every stature to hunt and capture human lives! Will you snare the lives of My people to keep your own selves alive? You have profaned Me among My people [in payment] for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, slaying persons who should not die and giving [a guaranty of] life to those who should not live, by your lying to My people, who give heed to lies. Therefore thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against your pillows and charms and veils with which you snare human lives like birds, and I will tear them from your arms and will let the lives you hunt go free, the lives you are snaring like birds.
Your [deceptive] veils also will I tear and deliver My people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted and snared. Then you shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord.
Because with lies you have made the righteous sad and disheartened, whom I have not made sad or disheartened, and because you have encouraged and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not turn from his wicked way and be saved [in that you falsely promised him life. The corporate Body of Christ is being tolerant and accepting of sins, we must ask for forgiveness, repent and eradicate all sin in our lives.
Therefore you will no more see false visions or practice divinations, and I will deliver My people out of your hand. Then you will know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord.” Only the remnant people who obey and are holy to what God’s word says will have hope during the trial that is to come.
Most of you have been deceived and did not know the truth. You now know the truth and the truth will set you free.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
Dear Praying Friends,
Last year, Tony Perkins and FRC’s Pastors Council asked pastors across America to take part in Call2Fall, by using a small part of their regular Sunday worship service (the Sunday nearest Independence Day) to call for repentance and prayer and to declare our nation’s dependence upon God. Several thousand churches did so. Throughout our history, America has known God’s blessing like no other nation. We owe all to Him! That’s why FRC is calling on churches to again observe Call2Fall this coming Sunday, July 4, 2010.
A Nation on Verge of Moral Collapse — All careful observers can see “the handwriting on the wall.” The course charted by President Obama and a liberal Congress follows decades of declining moral and social standards and conduct. Clearly, we are witnessing what could prove to be irreversible, irreparable harm to our nation. The sanctity of life, of marriage and of our cherished religious liberties are under attack as never before.
The Fear of God — The reasons for our federal government’s failure to solve our problems are many. But we needn’t look far to find the root. Our Forefathers founded our nation upon the moral pillars of the Ten Commandments — they had a “fear of God.” They considered biblical morality as essential to the survival of our Republic. In the Declaration, they asserted that our rights as human beings come from our Creator — not the government. This has been the sure foundation of all of our liberties to this day. Frequent public days of prayer and fasting demonstrated the Founders’ sense of dependence upon God. Now, the White House snubs the National Day of Prayer and a Federal Judge has ruled the Day unconstitutional. Yet we have hope in God! Foreseeing the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple, Jesus assured His disciples, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, buy my words shall not pass away” (Mt 24:35).
Economic Tyranny — Approaching July 4th, 2010, our nation faces potential economic collapse. This week the leaders of the world’s most powerful national economies listened to and rejected our President’s plan to cure global financial woes with massive new borrowing, taxes and deficit spending — the very plan he and the liberal Congress have implemented here in the U.S. Earlier this year, the President and liberals in Congress engineered a government takeover of the American health care industry, 17 percent of the American economy. Seventy percent of Americans opposed the plan. Now, large parts of the American auto, insurance and investment banking industries are also under government control.
Immoral Social Agenda — June was declared by our President to be “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered Equality Month.” At a White House party for homosexual activists, the President recounted his pro-homosexual record and promised a host of new benefits, rights and special protections for the LGBT community. But this privileged new class, whose members are identified by their bizarre sexual practices, presents many threats to society: threats to public health, public morals, the wellbeing of children, threats to religious liberty and, indeed, to themselves. Our Creator condemns their practices as “abominable” and morally reprehensible (see Lev 18:30). Historically, many American states have had laws against homosexual behavior, yet now it is celebrated in the White House. Scripture warns that those who practice and those who approve these things are objects of God’s wrath (Rom 1:32). Scripture warns that these practices will cause the very land to “vomit out its inhabitants” (Lev 18:25). Thus, public approval is a threat to us all.
The President’s commitment to implement the LGBT agenda (e.g., the so-called “Hate Crimes” law, the proposals to repeal both the military’s policy of prohibiting homosexuals from serving and the “Defense of Marriage Act,” the pro-homosexual “Employment Non-Discrimination Act,” and other measures) has far-reaching implications for America. God reminds us in the New Testament that “by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly” (2 Pet 2:6); and “In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire ” (Jude 7).
Corporate Sin and Guilt — Ours is a government “of the people.” We share the guilt of our collective national sins. But we have also sinned in our private lives. Popular culture is riddled with flagrant disregard for God, and we participate in them too often and too widely. Our personal sins impact not only ourselves, but the welfare of our families, churches, communities and nation. Those with authority in any sphere bear an extra weight of responsibility for our country’s welfare and condition. Whether we are pastors, churches, parents, educators, businessmen, entertainers, or the media, our influence makes an impact, either by our righteous involvement, overt sin or passive neglect. America’s recent treatment of Israel, widespread abortion, the subjection of our children to immoral “sex education,” pornography, promiscuity (40 percent of births now occur outside marriage), divorce, same-sex “marriage,” violent entertainment, and more, all add to our guilt (see catalogue of sins).They are at the bottom of this page.
The Unique Role of God’s People — God holds His people, those who claim Jesus as Savior and Lord, uniquely responsible for our nation’s condition. We are sent to be salt and light (Mt 5:13). He calls us to holiness (Heb 12:14); to proclaim the message of repentance and faith (Mt 4:17; 28:18-20), and gives us power through prayer. He expects us to humble ourselves, to pray for our nation, to seek His face and to turn from our own wicked ways (2 Chr 7:14). That is why Tony and FRC have launched the Call2Fall.
God Will Intervene to Heal Our Land if We Meet His Conditions — Please join us and enlist your pastor and friends; some will respond even at this late date. Many understand that we face an emergency. Call2Fall is a step toward a church-wide response to 2 Chronicles 7:14. Individuals whose churches do not participate can still do so with a prayer group or their family. Point your pastor and friends to the Call2Fall Website, read the Blog and study the rich content yourself, then join believers across America in Call2Fall this Sunday!
- Pray that God will use Call2Fall to birth a new spirit of prayer and repentance in churches across America. May He help pastors to lead their churches in repentant prayer! May a new season of prayer and solemn assembly that move God’s heart begin across our nation! May God send revival to His Church and another Great Awakening to America! May our children inherit a land where Christ is honored as Savior and Lord. May America yet become a “city on a hill” to the nations (2 Chr 7:14; Jer 3:12; 4:1-4; Joel 1:13-15; 2:12-19; Mal 3:7a; Mt 4:5-6; Acts 3:19; Jas 4:10; 1 Pet 5:6).
