The road is now cleared for martial law and perhaps the end of America as we know it. Military “standing where it ought not” (Mark 13:14) was a sign to flee Jerusalem, but the idea of fleeing the cities when we see it as early believers did, seems strange to most Christians. Are they like the frog in warm water, about to be cooked (trapped)?
The Supreme Court ruled that police officers are permitted to violate American citizens’ Fourth Amendment rights if the violation results from a “reasonable” mistake about the law (8-1 in Heien v. State of North Carolina ).
John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of the award-winning book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State said, “By refusing to hold police accountable to knowing and abiding by the rule of law, the Supreme Court has given government officials a green light to…police overreach, military training drills on American soil, domestic surveillance, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, wrongful convictions, and corporate corruption…This ruling is what I would call a one-way, nonrefundable ticket to the police state.”
Unconstitutional search and seizure is common if we understand Constitutional rights to travel uninhibited by such. I have been stopped when by highway patrol noting a single crack in my windshield. He wanted proof of insurance (search) but it wasn’t required to renew my car license (I was from out of state) so the ticket was $1000—seizure!
That may seem like an isolated case, but I have been pulled over by a cop (standing in a residential intersection) for not having my seat belt on, and then Pandora’s box is open for driver’s license etc. Woe be when they get everything computerized to find dissidents. Mary land also has stake-outs to ticket pedestrians who cross in the middle of the block—they are supposed to cross at the corner with the light. The government is like a predator.
Hate for unfair laws to support a greedy government is coming to a head with the image of Daniel 2 in the Bible crumbling to be blown away in the wind. Lawlessness is becoming widespread as seen by the killing of innocent police officers. This kind of rebellion will only end in FEMA camps and bondage.
Matt Drudge was right when he tweeted, “Have an exit plan.” Christ was implying the same idea when He said to flee the abomination that early believers understood to be military. They fled Jerusalem and were spared the siege by Titus, but that warning foreshadowed “the end of the world,” Matthew 24:3,15.
Early Chistians had no problem fleeing because they had already sold what they had and held everything in common, Acts 2:44,45. The Bible contrasts Christ’s last church as lukewarm with materialism—blind is part of the description that could apply to unhappy western Christians sometime soon.
Millions of Christians are trapped in cities of America. They have the illusion they are free, but will they do so as early Christians did from Jerusalem when military showed up? It’s doubtful. Most are like the frog in warm water that is slowly heating—they don’t know when to jump. Maybe God is giving us some signs?
Didn’t He say, “The sun shall be darkened and the moon turned into blood before…the day of the Lord,” Joel 2:31. It will happen this spring!
Furthermore, the solar eclipse on March 20 and a “blood moon” two weeks later on Passover supports this year as a unique parallel to Exodus 12:2 when God indicated the beginning of the biblical year and two weeks later, Israel put blood on their doorposts for Passover, verse 7.
And what is Passover? It’s a time of judgment. God said then, “I will execute judgment,” Exodus 12:12. Will He do it for America?
Billy Graham said, If God waits much longer, He will have to apologize to Sodom. Many cultures have a problem with homosexuality, but Sodom “paraded” it, Isaiah 3:9, NIV. In the US, gay parades flaunt sin as Sodom did.
Harold Camping, who died after a failed rapture event a couple years ago, was probably right with his idea of http://MayJudgmentDay.com but wrong to connect it to a rapture and he didn’t have the advantage of the unique timing for the solar and lunar eclipses that will mark this spring.
