PLEASE take the time to read this one chapter of the Bible to see this same track.

Hoshea Reigns over Israel

“17 In the twelfth year of Ahaz king of Judah, Hoshea the son of Elah became king over Israel in Samaria, and reigned nine years. 2 He did evil in the sight of the Lord, only not as the kings of Israel who were before him. 3 Shalmaneser king of Assyria came up against him, and Hoshea became his servant and paid him tribute. 4 But the king of Assyria found conspiracy in Hoshea, who had sent messengers to So king of Egypt and had offered no tribute to the king of Assyria, as he had done year by year; so the king of Assyria shut him up and bound him in prison.

5 Then the king of Assyria invaded the whole land and went up to Samaria and besieged it three years.

Israel Captive

6 In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria captured Samaria and carried Israel away into exile to Assyria, and settled them in Halah and Habor, on the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.

Why Israel Fell

7 Now this came about because the sons of Israel had sinned against the LORD their God, who had brought them up from the land of Egypt from under the hand of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and they had feared other gods 8 and walked in the customs of the nations whom the Lord had driven out before the sons of Israel, and in the customs of the kings of Israel which they had introduced. 9 The sons of Israel did things secretly which were not right against the LORD their God. Moreover, they built for themselves high places in all their towns, from watchtower to fortified city. 10 They set for themselves sacred pillars and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree, 11 and there they burned incense on all the high places as the nations did which the Lord had carried away to exile before them; and they did evil things provoking the Lord. 12 They served idols, concerning which the LORD had said to them, “You shall not do this thing.” 13 Yet the LORD warned Israel and Judah through all His prophets and every seer, saying, “Turn from your evil ways and keep My commandments, My statutes according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you through My servants the prophets.” 14 However, they did not listen, but stiffened their neck like their fathers, who did not believe in the LORD their God. 15 They rejected His statutes and His covenant which He made with their fathers and His warnings with which He warned them. And they followed vanity and became vain, and went after the nations which surrounded them, concerning which the LORD had commanded them not to do like them. 16 They forsook all the commandments of the Lord their God and made for themselves molten images, even two calves, and made an Asherah and worshiped all the host of heaven and served Baal. 17 Then they made their sons and their daughters pass through the fire, and practiced divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking Him. 18 So the LORD was very angry with Israel and removed them from His sight; none was left except the tribe of Judah.

19 Also Judah did not keep the commandments of the Lord their God, but walked in the customs which Israel had introduced. 20 The LORD rejected all the descendants of Israel and afflicted them and gave them into the hand of plunderers, until He had cast them out of His sight.

21 When He had torn Israel from the house of David, they made Jeroboam the son of Nebat king. Then Jeroboam drove Israel away from following the LORD and made them commit a great sin. 22 The sons of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he did; they did not depart from them 23 until the LORD removed Israel from His sight, as He spoke through all His servants the prophets. So Israel was carried away into exile from their own land to Assyria until this day.

24 The king of Assyria brought men from Babylon and from Cuthah and from Avva and from Hamath and Sepharvaim, and settled them in the cities of Samaria in place of the sons of Israel. So they possessed Samaria and lived in its cities. 25 At the beginning of their living there, they did not fear the LORD; therefore the LORD sent lions among them which killed some of them. 26 So they spoke to the king of Assyria, saying, “The nations whom you have carried away into exile in the cities of Samaria do not know the custom of the god of the land; so he has sent lions among them, and behold, they kill them because they do not know the custom of the god of the land.”

27 Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, “Take there one of the priests whom you carried away into exile and let him go and live there; and let him teach them the custom of the god of the land.” 28 So one of the priests whom they had carried away into exile from Samaria came and lived at Bethel, and taught them how they should fear the LORD.

NOTE: I wonder which priest was sent and whether or not he was willing and able to teach the whole truth to them. What a great opportunity and it seems that he blew it.

29 But every nation still made gods of its own and put them in the houses of the high places which the people of Samaria had made, every nation in their cities in which they lived. 30 The men of Babylon made Succoth-benoth, the men of Cuth made Nergal, the men of Hamath made Ashima, 31 and the Avvites made Nibhaz and Tartak; and the Sepharvites burned their children in the fire to Adrammelech and Anammelech the gods of Sepharvaim. 32 They also feared the Lord and appointed from among themselves priests of the high places, who acted for them in the houses of the high places. 33 They feared the LORD and served their own gods according to the custom of the nations from among whom they had been carried away into exile.

34 To this day they do according to the earlier customs: they do not fear the LORD, nor do they follow their statutes or their ordinances or the law, or the commandments which the LORD commanded the sons of Jacob, whom He named Israel; 35 with whom the LORD made a covenant and commanded them, saying, “You shall not fear other gods, nor bow down yourselves to them nor serve them nor sacrifice to them. 36 But the LORD, who brought you up from the land of Egypt with great power and with an outstretched arm, Him you shall fear, and to Him you shall bow yourselves down, and to Him you shall sacrifice. 37 The statutes and the ordinances and the law and the commandment which He wrote for you, you shall observe to do forever; and you shall not fear other gods. 38 The covenant that I have made with you, you shall not forget, nor shall you fear other gods. 39 But the LORD your God you shall fear; and He will deliver you from the hand of all your enemies.” 40 However, they did not listen, but they did according to their earlier custom. 41 So while these nations feared the Lord, they also served their idols; their children likewise and their grandchildren, as their fathers did, so they do to this day.” (emphasis added)                                                                        2 Kings 17:1-41 NASB

In only 238 years of America’s run as a country, we have gone from holding worship services in the national capital, congress paying for Bibles to be placed in public school classrooms, protecting all citizens, both born and unborn, dealing openly with moral issues and a vast number of other issues to the degraded national leaders that we have had and each one getting worse, with rare exceptions such as David, Solomon, Hezekiah, Josiah etc. We have had some God-fearing presidents in our past and they stand out as our heroes. As we read the story of Israel’s history from 1 & 2 Samuel, 1&2 Kings and 1 & 2 Chronicles, we see the undoing of their nation as they turned away from God and embraced every form of sin and sexual perversion. They even sacrificed their own children to Molech, that hideous idol that was heated glowing hot and laid their live children in his pagan arms for sacrifice. Today women just pay $56 bucks to have the child murdered while in the womb, to the tune of over 50,000,000 dead babies since 1976 when the Supreme Court legalized murdering our children. God often judged Israel when they shed INNOCENT blood, so will He for our crimes against the unborn. All this done to remove the consequences from the blatant sexual immorality of our land.

The ultimate abomination to the eyes of God is homosexuality. Tragically, those who follow this lifestyle are in a self-destruction mode as most die young because of disease. It is sad since God desires that all people should be saved from sin and death, but the multitude of hate speech laws keep us at bay from sharing this with them for fear of being arrested, and this is a real threat. For two hundred years we dealt with this so as to keep it behind closed doors but today we are flooded with it every where we go and are forced to accept it whether we like it or not. More and more laws are passed or executive orders given to celebrate every form of sexual perversion, even in our schools with cross dressing and generic bathrooms. Nations who cave in to this sin will find their existence gone, as others have in history. Just look at Rome. It was not overtaken by an outside enemy, it fell from within through their blatant sexual immorality and perversion.

Does it take me saying more to remind us all of how far we have fallen and how rapid the descent is today. Even most of the so-called Christian church has become a bastion for every form of evil. Even Planned Parenthood has its own chaplain!!!

The last straw is our elected leaders who are turning their backs on ISRAEL. She is fighting for her very existence as a nation and yet they are being accused of war crimes. Insanity is behind this. No, Satan is behind this and the demise of our nation.

The Bible tells us to resist the Devil and he must flee from us. ARE we resisting him today or are we just going with the so-called flow?

Folks, America is in line for the very wrath of God! I have spoken with Dr. Henry Blackaby and others who feel the same way. If America does not repent and turn back to God we will no longer exist as a free nation. The saddest part is that, for the most part, the church is asleep or just flat out does not care. Thank God for those who will die before they will compromise. These are the ones keeping us from immediate judgment now. We don’t need another church growth conference, we need REVIVAL and a Third Great Awakening, NOW! There are movements today that are praying and working to this very end. I feel so helpless to make a difference today in any way other than writing. This is why I am writing today. My heart is broken for the condition of America, but more importantly, THE CHURCH of JESUS CHRIST. I am sickened at what I see in far too many churches and apostate denominations.

The word for us today is …

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF FORTRESSES. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing RAISED UP AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and we are ready to punish all disobedience, WHENEVER YOUR OBEDIENCE IS COMPLETE.” (emphasis added)                                                                    2 Corinthians 10:3-6 NASB

My final question is, are we destroying fortresses, speculations and lofty ideas raised up against the TRUTH of God’s holy Word? There are so many of these that could have been stopped at their beginning if enough Christians had spoken out. Still today, as we see our nation being destroyed day by day, we still remain silent, for the most part. Is our obedience complete? Are we following the ways of the world (ie Satan), or are we uncompromising followers of God? Each one MUST answer this for themselves. Is immorality, disobedience to God’s commands and trying to fit in to the world’s mold in your life as a believer or are we fully devoted followers of our LORD JESUS CHRIST? The future of this nation depends on your answer. Choose wisely!

Love you all.

The more I read about Facebook and other social media sites, the more I see them working in conjunction with the government to collect as much information on us as they can AND to sell advertising so as to get filthy rich in the process. I just added my 850th friend and I know that it is hard to cut the tie. Did you know that when you leave that they KEEP everything that you have posted in the past? Recent Wall Street Journal articles expose how Facebook is manipulating the postings that we put up. They are also selling our complete file of info to others and can legally use our photo in ads. Find this hard to imagine? Not for those who have seen their picture in such a place. A major consumer group in France has filed suit against Twitter, Google and Facebook, accusing them of breaching privacy laws and are demanding that what is posted stays the property of the poster.

Big Brother is alive and well in America and other parts of the world. Over a billion people use Facebook. That is one seventh of the world’s population. All we have to do is to read the Bible on last times and we see how the Antichrist will dominate the lives of everyone except those Christians who refuse to cooperate, in this case they will be hunted down and killed if they are found. There has never been a time more critical for Christians to KNOW WHAT THEY BELIEVE and LIVE IT OUT. The bottom line is, you can cave in, deny your faith and survive or stand for God and LIVE even if we are martyred. Take the time to read the book of Revelation and see for yourself. Revelation 20:1-6 is but a part of these prophesies. I, for one, will gladly give this life with expectation of eternal life with God in heaven, where all the saints who have gone before me are now. To deny Jesus Christ and taking the mark of the beast will seal your fate to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire with Satan and his demons.

Could we be actually living in such a time? The signs of the times are all around us. No one can say for certain when this will happen, but Jesus and His disciples spoke and wrote much about this time, warning all who ignore His words.

“If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which are beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:14-15 NASB

It is time for the sleeping giant, THE CHURCH, to wake up and stop Satan’s march to take over the world. We must choose NOW to stand with Israel to the end! They are and have ever been His CHOSEN PEOPLE. They play a huge role in the last days. The 144,000 are NOT Jehovah’s Witnesses, they come from the 12 tribes of Israel.

May God use this to encourage your heart. I love you!!!!
