Im sorry to hear of what your mother experienced, and I hope she recovered, but Im not your mother or father, nor am I their Calvinist Preacher. You cant judge me based on your personal problems, and you are the one making things personal. Your post is off-topic and uncalled for.

This is why America is under discipline. We choose to throw eachother under the bus for personal glorification. I never accused any individual of anything in this thread. Im simply stating that America as a whole has the wrong priorities, and there will be consequences for America's poor choices.

Many Christians have taken the bible as a license to criticized others, and many non-believers pass blanket judgements upon all christian; projecting their frustration on to innocent people. In either case, both believers and non-believers alike have consistently failed to live by God's Word. The fact that judgement is coming is more of a rebuke against the believer than the non-believer. It will be the luke warm believers who will suffer the most.

Earthquakes, Wars/Rumors of wars, famine and plagues...that is what Jesus told us to watch for, and that is what I am reporting to you.

Open your eyes...we can not continue down this path forever.

It is personal you and the West borough Baptist church believe America is in debt to divine judgement. Go away with your religion and may it wither in history.

God does what he wants, whether or not we understand the reasoning. "What he wants" could include waiting. Waiting for a man, or a snail. However he wants to do it.

Isn't there also something in the bible about false preachers???

Yes and someone always brings this up whenever anyone even mentions the bible... so I guess all preachers are false preachers then? I wonder how we can know the difference.

If you refuse to listen to BELIEVER, and I think he's right. Perhaps you will listen to George Washington and what he reportedly saw about America's future:

I do not know whether it is owing to the anxiety of my mind, or what, but this afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire into the cause of her presence.

A second, a third, and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes. I would have risen, but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless, even thought itself had become paralyzed. A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor.

Gradually, the surrounding atmosphere seemed as though becoming filled with sensations and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarefy, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy, and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.

Presently I heard a voice saying, "Son of the Republic, look and learn," while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly. I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a strange scene. Before me lay spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific. "Son of the Republic," said the same mysterious voice as before, "Look and learn."

At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being floating in mid-air between Europe and America, dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand. He sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe. Immediately a dark cloud raised from these countries and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning passed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.

A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows it sank from view. A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, "Son of the Republic, look and learn." I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them. Again I heard the mysterious voice say, "Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn."

At this the dark, shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill-omened specter approach our land. It flitted slowly over every town and city. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As I continued looking, I saw a bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word "Union," bearing the American flag, which he placed between the divided nation, and said, "Remember ye are brethren." Instantly the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons, became friends once more and united around the National Standard.

And again I heard the mysterious voice saying, "Son of the Republic, look and learn." At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia, and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: from each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were joined into one, and throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America, which country was enveloped in the volume of the cloud.

And I dimly saw these vast armies devastate the whole country and burn the villages, towns, and cities that I beheld were springing up. As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, "Son of the Republic, look and learn." When the voice had ceased, the dark, shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth and blew a long and fearful blast.

Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel, upon whose head still shone the word UNION, and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens, attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle.

Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, "Son of the Republic, look and learn." As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious. Then once more I beheld the villages, towns, and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice, "While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last." And taking from his brow the crown on which was blazoned the word "Union," he placed it upon the Standard, while the people, kneeling down, said, "Amen."

The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, "Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted: Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third, passing which the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land, and the Union." With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat, and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States.

Of course, I suppose the only question left to ask you is ... Are you a son of the Republic? If you are then you should be looking to find unity because the final challenge seen in Washington's vision is yet to come, but I think it may be on the horizon. The only way we overcome is if we stand together.

You don't have to believe in God to stand with the Republic, but you do have to believe in the Republic.

You don't need a rule book.. KNOW the difference by KNOWING The One Infinite Creator. YOU ARE The Church™ When One gets "preached to" then You are getting that Preacher's interpretation, who received it from another, each being "preached to" along the line..

Blanket statement like "America" deserves this.. What about the collateral damage? The last time the Chris†ians had this much 'in-fighting' Israel was 'The Holy Place' that needed to be 'defended' Yet when IsIl ('foe de jour') is mentioned about their "Own Land" they are mocked and ganged up on.. Now You zealots want America too? How about those of Us whose ancestors were HERE before the "Founding Fathers" came and raped Our women, killed Our children. You not only took "Our" land (We didn't even have a word for 'Mine'/Ours' before You diseased Us with Your war, and religion™.) We will "STILL" be here when You've taken Your 'Eternal Combat' elseWhere, like where You 'Live in Fear'.. Better to get "them" 'there' than 'here' A typical NIMBY..

O.P. Could You address where "Benjamin" (Benhamyn; Benyamin) fits in?

Benjamin? I assume you mean Netanyahu. In my opinion, I believe both the American and Israeli governments are behind ISIS and many other disasters. It does seem that on top of this divine discipline, America is undergoing a controlled demolition. The powers can conspire to destroy this nation, but only the moral degeneration of the social structure can make us vulnerable to such measures. I believe Netanyahu has much to gain from this. We are being tempted into destruction, and so far, its working. America has already lost its medical system, though most dont realize it yet.

In my experience, God has a plan for me, so I know He has a plan for all of us. What appears to be collateral damage to us is all part of God's plan. Death (however horrible it may appear to be) is only a transition point into the afterlife. It is between God and the individual how much one suffers and how they die. There are many disasters in history, but the only tragedies are of those who leave this world unprepared for the afterlife...and that is by personal choice.

You cant blame all Christians for what happened to the native people of this land. That was almost 2 centuries ago. Most of the Founding Father were Illuminists, not Christians.

Negatory Good Buddy.. I thought We were going way, way back.. Look to the right of God.. What is that Ones name?

As You typed in Your last paragraph, You can't "blame" Chris†ians.. Just like One can't blame the Jew for sinking TheTitanic by saying "Iceberg, Feinberg, Goldberg they ALL sound the same to Me.." If You want to "jump on the sword/call in an air strike" get a safe distance, as a bomb/bullet doesn't KNOW who to kill/maim..

Couldn't it also be that the 'whole of humanity' is just waiting on One person to choose "Love" over "Hate" just as easy as wanting/wishing a calamity because YOU think 'Merica has lost it's way.. The old "Center of the Universe" huh?

You do realize that 'many' aren't enlightened to the fact that there is "more to come" Yet 'they' are too busy buying crappy sweatshirts that read "YOLO" (What a crock!!) It is these folks that when it is time to 'cross over' they get "stuck".....hmmm. Where is Your head/heart? The Ones who don't "KNOW" (In My world "KNOW" trumps "thought" 'felt' "believed" "Pastor Gary said...." 'The Bible says...' The Torah says...) will head into 'death' with FEAR because some guy/girl on the web said this.... These are the folks that get "stuck"...

ALL Indians walk single file, at least the ONLY One I knew did..


Fill 'them' with LOVE not with 'fear' or not....

And don't ASS/U/not Me, the "other You"...

Im suspicious of Washington. Ive read some very none Christian quotes from him. He seemed more like an Eccumenalist to me. Furthuremore, the OT prophets were always addressed as "son of man", not "son of the republic". I dont doubt that Washington saw what he claimed to have seen, but who gave him the vision?
