The Soon Coming Judgment Of God Upon America and How To Escape It 546
Satans power with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 2:14). It is Satan who
seeks to destroy us. Peter writes: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a
roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: (1 Peter 5:8) But because of His
love for us, God will bring sin and Satan's reign of terror to an end. Satan will be cast into the
lake of fire. God will also cast all those who follow Satan, all who love sin and who are
rebellious into the lake of fire with Satan. When Satan and all his followers are burned up, there
will be no more sin (Revelation 20:10-15).
God will bestow honor and glory upon His redeemed. This glory and honor will not be
for anything we have done but for what He and His Son Jesus Christ has done for us. We shall be
as angels (Matthew 22:30). We shall judge angels (1 Corinthians 6:3). Jesus who is God, will
call us His brethren (Matthew 12:49-50 and Hebrews 2:11). Did you get that? God shall call us
His brothers and sisters. And we shall be made kings (Revelation 1:6 and 5:10) and shall live in
mansions more glorious than anything existing on earth (John 14:2).
Historically God's wrath has been poured out many times. The Bible shows us that it was
poured out on the inhabitants of earth at the time of the flood, on Sodom and Gomorrah, and on
the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, Jebusites, and Moabits when
Israel came into the land God gave to Abraham.
God's wrath was poured out on these people
because they were sinful and rebellious and refused to repent.
Of the people of Noah's day: GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the
earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (Genesis
God said that the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was very grievous and that their was a
great outcry against them (Genesis 18:20).
In the case of the Amorites, and other gentile nations in the land of Israel, God gave them
400 years of probation during which time he sent his own people into captivity in Egypt
(Geneses 15:13-16). When their cup of iniquity was filled up, God sent Israel to bring judgment
upon them (Deuteronomy 7:1-2).
The Amorites and other gentile nations were engaged in the same sins we see in America
today. They were engaged in occult activities such as witchcraft, sorcery (a wizard), the use of
magic (a charmer), the use of charms (an enchanter), they were using fortunetellers and
psychics (divination), astrology (an observer of times) and channeling (a consulter with
familiar spirits). They were also sacrificing their sons and daughters in the fire which is no
different than abortion. God said that all these activities were an abomination and for these
abominable sins he destroyed these nations. God declared to Israel:
When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee,
thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not
be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through
the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a
witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a
necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and
