Prophetic Flashback? - December 5, 1783 - Dr. Benjamin Rush  - “America seems destined by heaven … operations of liberty, learning, and the Gospel upon it.” – “Europe in its present state of political torpor affords no scope for the activity of a benevolent mind. Here [in America] everything is in a plastic state. Here the benefactor of mankind may realize all his schemes for promoting human happiness, Human nature here (unsubdued by the tyranny of European habits and customs) yields to reason, justice, and common sense, Come, sir, and spread the influence of science and religion among us. America seems destined by heaven to exhibit to the world the perfection which the mind of man is capable of receiving from the combined operations of liberty, learning, and the Gospel upon it.”  


Prophetic Flashback? - March 29, 2017 - Matt Walsh - Christians, our true battle is spiritual, not political  – The first liberal was named Lucifer. He was an angel. He lived in Heaven millennia ago, before modern times, before ancient times, before time itself. He could still be there today if that’s what he’d chosen, but in his absurd and insatiable pride he would not bend his knee to the supreme will of God.


    Non serviam. “I will not serve,” he said, wanting to love only himself.


Just like that, he and those who followed him were cast out of Paradise, down into the hideous depths of Hell, where he could reign over his pitiful kingdom of darkness. It was there, in the fires of damnation, that the philosophy of liberalism was born, although it wouldn’t be known by that name for many years. …  It was the philosophy behind every act of human evil throughout history, at the bottom of every atrocity. …  This philosophy has propelled all the great villains throughout history. It is the philosophy of Judas, of Nero, of Genghis Khan, of Adolf Hitler , of Hillary Clinton. The specifics of what these people all believed, and how they framed it around the political circumstances of the day, isn’t terribly relevant, for they desired the same thing and worshiped the same god: the self.


What we call “liberalism” in public discourse today is really just the worship of self. It is the categorical belief in the supremacy of the individual… Their worship might manifest itself in different ways, but they’re all cut from the same cloth woven by the Devil himself eons ago. …


Christians must understand that it is the Devil himself we are battling, not just Democrats. What makes this thing we call “modern liberalism” so dangerous is that it is not modern at all. It is nothing but the contemporary manifestation of an ancient evil. It is the current label we’ve given to the religion of self-worship, but this religion has existed on Earth ever since the fall of Man, and it originates with the very first being in the universe who decided to place himself above God. That’s why I use the term “secular satanism” to describe liberalism in the book. After all, satanism is the worship of self, not the worship of Satan. The only thing that distinguishes the theological satanist from the secular satanist is that the latter follows Satan’s lead without acknowledging that he exists, which is, as far as Satan is concerned, the ideal situation. …


There are really only two sides to the culture war: those who deny God and put the Self in His place, and those who submit to the authority of He who created all things, and subjugate themselves to that authority. What we call “liberalism” is the organized and intentional effort to move the culture into the former camp. The leader of this movement is not any politician or MSNBC host, but the Devil of Hell. He is the one we fight and struggle against, and it is his agenda our opponents advance. We should never lose sight of that.

Prophetic Flashback? - February 9, 1937 - Sister Maria Faustina Kowalska (Divine Mercy) - “the Lord gave me to know who it is that upholds the existence of mankind” – “I experienced the overwhelming flood of chastisements and sins. In one instant the Lord gave me a knowledge of the sins committed throughout the whole world during these days. I fainted from fright, and even though I know the depth of God's mercy, I was surprised that God allowed humanity to exist.  And the Lord gave me to know who it is that upholds the existence of mankind: it is the chosen souls. When the number of the chosen ones is complete, the world will cease to exist.” (From her Diary)


The priest spoke these profound words to me, "There are three degrees in the accomplishment of God's will: in the first, the soul carries out all rules and all rules and statutes pertaining to external observance; in the second degree, the soul accepts interior inspirations and carries them out faithfully; in the third degree, the soul, abandoned to the will of God, allows Him to dispose of it freely, and God does with it as, He pleased, and it is a docile toll in his hands."


Prophetic Flashback? - 1952 - Douglas MacArthur - “imperialistic Communism. It has infiltrated into positions of public trust and responsibility - into journalism, the press, the radio and the school … this evil force.” – “Much that I have seen since my return to my native land after an absence of many years has filled my with immeasurable satisfaction and pride. Our material progress has been little short of phenomenal. It has established an eminence in material strength so far in advance of any other nation or combination of nations that talk of an imminent threat to our national security through the application of external force is pure nonsense.


"It is not of any external threat that I concern myself but rather of insidious forces working from within which have already so drastically altered the character of our free institutions - these institutions which formerly we hailed as something beyond question of challenge - those institutions we proudly called the American way of life. Foremost of these forces is that directly, or even more frequently indirectly, allied with the scourge of imperialistic Communism. It has infiltrated into positions of public trust and responsibility - into journalism, the press, the radio and the school.


It seeks through covert manipulation of the civil power and the media of public information and education to pervert the truth, impair respect for moral values, suppress human freedom and representative government, and in the end destroy our faith in our religious teachings.


This evil force, with neither spiritual base nor moral standard, rallies the abnormal and subnormal elements among our citizenry and applies internal pressure against all things we hold descent and all things that we hold right - the type of pressure which has caused many Christian nations abroad to fall and their own cherished freedoms to languish in the shackles of complete suppression. As it has happened there it can happen here. Our need for patriotic fervor and religious devotion was never more impelling.


There can be no compromise with atheistic Communism, no half way in the preservation of freedom and religion. It must be all or nothing. We must unite in the high purpose that the liberties etched upon the design of our life by our forefathers be unimpaired and that we maintain the moral courage and spiritual leadership to preserve inviolate that mighty bulwark of all freedom, our Christian faith."

Prophetic Flashback? - 2008 - Augusto Perez - “Right now God is looking throughout America for people to stand in the gap. So he does not allow the powers of darkness that are about to ravage, ravage, and destroy this nation.” – “There are laws in the spirit realm. There are laws in the universe that God sets in place that cannot be changed. Not even by even by God himself. He could because he is sovereign and he is powerful but he will not. Because God will abide by the laws that he himself set in motion. He will submit to those laws. There are all sorts or laws. There are physical laws. There are cosmic laws that rule the celestial bodies. There are physical laws such like the laws of gravity that govern our physical world. And there are spiritual laws that God set in place and everybody has to abide by those laws, including God himself. The angels have to abide by those laws and devils and demons have to abide by those laws. So there certain things that governs everything that happens. …


The thing that people need to understand is that both God and the devil, or demons, cannot do anything unless people cooperate with them. This is a concept that a lot of people do not comprehend. They don’t comprehend it. God cannot do anything …on this earth unless man prays, and unless man cooperates. And this is something that is alien to most people. They cannot grasp that concept. They think that because God is so powerful, and he is so sovereign, he can do whatever he wants, at any time he wants, and doesn’t need anybody. …


In 2 Cornicles 7:14 if my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways then I will heal from heaven; and I will heal their land. But when that does not happen, God will not intervene. God can intervene. God can intervene right now in America. God can intervene, but is not going to happen unless there is a lot of God’s people praying and interceding and people start repenting on their sin like Nineveh. Now of course Nineveh was Old Testament but principle is the same. The principles are the same.


When a nation becomes wicked, when a nation becomes corrupted, God has no choice but to step back and let the powers of darkness do whatever they want to do. … When you hear the term ‘allows,’ is that he has no choice he cannot do anything because we have shut him out. We have shut him out of schools. We have kicked him out of schools. We have kicked him out of the government. We have kicked him out of our lives, kicked him out of everything and so he is unable. He cannot intervene. God cannot relieve his angels to minister for you because you kicked him out of your life. … It is a legal issue.


It is a legal issue. See the Lord ‘WILL NEVER’, I repeat, ‘WILL NEVER’ come into a place he is not invited. It works both ways. The devil and the demons cannot come into a house, a life, or a nation or whatever unless they are invited. And the angels of God and the Lord himself cannot come into a life, into a city, into a nation unless they are invited. It works both ways. … But the only way (back under God’s protection) it will happen is if God’s people in America will intercede and pray, that is the only way it will happen. …Most people have no idea the power of prayer.


Right now God is looking throughout America for people to stand in the gap. So he does not allow the powers of darkness that are about to ravage, ravage, and destroy this nation. God is looking for intercessors that will stand in the gap so he can send his angels from heaven and protect. Protect, a life, a protect a home, a family, protect a city, protect a nation. That is why this nation has not been destroyed so far. Because there have been people here, there have been Christians here who have been standing in the gap and they have been paying for very many years.”

Prophetic Flashback? - ~1973 - Rrobert Kleiman - “They have been known as atheists. But in fact God was their enemy” – Like the vast majority of Social Democrats, like Marx and Engels … in the words of Shigalev in Dostoevski's The Possessed, 'starting from unlimited liberty ends in unlimited despotism.' But Lenin accepted the premises, and being logically driven to conclusions repulsive to most of his colleagues, accepted them easily and without apparent qualms. His assumptions were, perhaps, in some sense, still those of the optimistic rationalist of the eighteenth and nineteenth century: the coercion, violence, execution, the total suppression of the individual differences, the rule of a small, virtually self-appointed minority, were necessary only in the interim period, only so long as there was a powerful enemy to be destroyed.


But how was it that Lenin, and so many after him, have accepted easily and without apparent qualms the repulsive process of violence, executions, suppressions, deception, under the unlimited rule of self-appointed oligarchs? Why do the full-fledged totalitarians, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, not shrink from the means they adopt to achieve their end? The answer is that the inhuman means are justified by the superhuman end: they are the agents of history or of nature. They are the men appointed to fulfill the destiny of creation. They have been known as atheists. But in fact God was their enemy, not because they did not believe in the Deity, but because they themselves were assuming His functions and claiming His prerogatives.

Prophetic Flashback? - 2016 -  James Caviezel - “But it will come in our generation this way. There are many things you see on the horizon right now where you will have to make a choice. You WILL have to make a choice.” - Video


"But understand people are going to choose evil, but you don't. …They'll all say choice choice, my freedom to choose.  Every generation of Americans needs to know that freedom exist not to do what you like but having the right to do what you ought.


If you want to look at is this way, the problem I see right now is the fact that many, many, Christians have immersed themselves in paganism. They want to be cool to their pagan friends by being a little pagan, so they can to be cool. There is nothing cool in this. The only thing lacking in you is you is you don't want to be holy.


Well here's what will happen. We will all come to task one day. You will either get a chance to lay it down for Jesus or you to deny him. But it will come in our generation this way. There are many things you see on the horizon right now where you will have to make a choice. You WILL have to make a choice. …


Our democracy cannot be sustained without a shared commitment to certain moral truths about the human person and the human community. The basics question before a democratic society is this how ought to we live together. Seeking an answer to his question can society exclude moral truths and moral reasoning. Set your set apart from this corrupt generation my brothers and sisters. You weren't made to fit in you were made to stand out."

Prophetic Flashback? - 1976 -  (Saint) Pope John Paul II - “I do not think the wide circle of the American society, or the wide circle of the Christian community, realizes this fully”

“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think the wide circle of the American society, or the wide circle of the Christian community, realizes this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the Gospel and the anti-Gospel, between Christ and the anti-christ. This confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God's Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up and face courageously....”

Prophetic Flashback? - 1917 Fatima - Sister Lúcia - “for the sin of the nation all the people pay”

“For the sin of the person, the person is responsible and pays for it, but for the sin of the nation all the people pay for it because rulers who enact unjust laws do so on behalf of the people who elected them.”

— Lúcia de Jesus Rosa Santos [Sister Mary Lucy of Jesus and of the Immaculate Heart] (1907-2005) Witnessed to Virgin Mary Apparitions at Fatima, Portugal, 1917


Prophetic Flashback? - 1917 Fatima - Sister Lúcia - “When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes.”

On July 13, 1917, Lúcia was shown in a vision and instructed:

" You have seen Hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war [WWI] is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pius XI.


When you see a night illumined by an unknown light [aurora borealis extending to Italy January 25, 1938], know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war [WWII], famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors [Communism] throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church.


The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

Prophetic Flashback? - ~1984 - Dumitru Duduman - “The Message For America” - Link to Website

“He said "Dumitru, why are you so despaired?" I said, "Why did you punish me?  Why did you bring me to this country?  I have nowhere to lay my head down.  I can't understand anybody."  He said, "Dumitru, didn't I tell you I am here with you, also?  I brought you to this country because this country will burn."  I said, 'then why did you bring me here to burn?  Why didn't you let me die in my own country?  You should have let me die in jail in Romania!  He said, "Dumitru, have patience so I can tell you.  Get on this."  I got on something next to him.  I don't know what it was.  I also know that I was not asleep.  It was not a dream.  It was not a vision.  I was awake just as I am now.


He showed me all of California and said, "This is Sodom and Gomorrah!  All of this, in one day it will burn!  It's sin has reached the Holy One."  Then he took me to Las Vegas.  "This is Sodom and Gomorrah.  In one day it will burn."  Then he showed me the state of New York.  "Do you know what this is?" he asked.  I said, "No."  He said "This is New York.  This is Sodom and Gomorrah!  In one day it will burn."  Then he showed me all of Florida, "This is Florida." he said.   "This is Sodom and Gomorrah!  In one day it will burn." …


I said, "What will you do with the church?"  He said, "I want to save the church, but the churches have forsaken me."  I said, "How did they forsake you?"  He said, "The people praise themselves.  The honor that the people are supposed to give Jesus Christ, they take upon themselves.  In the churches there are divorces.  There is adultery in the churches.  There are homosexuals in the churches.  There is abortion in the churches and all other sins that are possible.


Prophetic Flashback? - ~1947 - Fulton J. Sheen - “A nation always gets the kind of politicians it deserves”

1947 Radio Address from The Catholic Hour.  - Link to Video

“A nation always gets the kind of politicians it deserves. If a time ever comes when the religious Jews, Protestant s and Catholics ever have to suffer under a totalitarian state, which would deny to them the right worship God according to the light of their conscience, it will be because for years they thought it made no difference what kind of people represented them in Congress, and because they abandoned the spiritual in the realm of the temporal.”

Prophetic Flashback? - ~1786 - Richard Price - “In the plan of Providence has been assigned” – "It will be true of them, as it was of the people of the Jews, that in them all the families of the earth shall be blessed. It is scarcely possible they should think too highly of their own consequence. Perhaps, there never existed a people on whose wisdom and virtue more depended; or to whom a station of more importance in the plan of Providence has been assigned. They have fought with success for themselves and for the world; and, in the midst of invasion and carnage, established forms of government favorable in the highest degree to the rights of mankind…


The United States of America may become the seats of liberty, science, peace, and virtue; happy within themselves, and a refuge to the world. … And should this be true. Should the return of peace and the pride of independence lead them to security and dissipation.  Should they lose those virtuous and simple manners by which alone Republics can long subsist.  Should false refinement, luxury, and irreligion spread among them; excessive jealousy district their governments; and clashing interests, subject to no strong control, break the federal union.  The consequence will be, that the fairest experiment ever tried in human affairs will miscarry; and that a Revolution which had revived the hopes of good men and promised an opening to better times, will become a discouragement to all future efforts in favor of liberty, and prove only an opening to a new scene of human degeneracy and misery."

Prophetic Flashback? - August 23, 2015 - Michael Bresciani - “Make America Great Again” – A Promise Donald Trump Cannot Keep

“God never separates our economy and our morality – they are inextricably linked forever. We are at our all-time low in morality, what is concomitant is an economic crash – you can count on it!”


What is our definition of greatness? – What is God’s definition?  …Let's start with a passage that applies to both individuals and nations and work out from there. "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Mt 16: 26) If increasing wealth and producing jobs was all it would take to make America "great" again I would be the first person to vote for Donald Trump. …


God will never judge this nation because of a bad relationship with China or Mexico ... Our insistence on perverted “gay marriage” and our continuance in the slaughter of unborn babies will bring us to a reckoning day we will all rue. …On abortion trump has declared that he will stop abortions after twenty weeks.


Not good enough Donald!


It is still murder or genocide at one day or twenty weeks, this Divine rule was in place before you drew your first breath and the arbitrary assignment of time limits for when an abortion can legally, or morally be performed are not yours to make. …


Prophetic Flashback? - August 25, 2015 - Medjugorje - Bosnia-Hercegovina of - “The world is in a moment of trial, because it forgot and abandoned God.” – "A moment of trial." "Forgot and abandoned God!"


It seemed -- from these latest words, as opposed to those earlier -- that the choices before mankind may be over and now the world was being "tried."


That sounded more like an announcement of the result of bad decisions as opposed to a test of choice -- although still, an "hour" given for mankind to choose between the world, the devil, and Almighty God. - Website

And if there were left upon earth but one Catholic, he would be the one, universal Church, the Catholic Church, the Church of Jesus Christ against which the gates of Hell shall never prevail."

Prophetic Flashback? - 1965 - Paul Harvey - If I Were the Devil

If I were the devil, I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree — Thee. So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. "If I were the devil, I wouldn't be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree - Thee. So I'd set about however necessary to take over the United States. I'd subvert the churches first - I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: 'Do as you please. Do as you please.'


To the young, I would whisper, 'The Bible is a myth.' I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is 'square.' And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to pray after me, 'Our Father, which art in Washington…'


And then I'd get organized. I'd educate authors on how to lurid literature exciting, so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I'd threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. I'd pedal narcotics to whom I could. I'd sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I'd tranquilize the rest with pills.


If I were the devil I'd soon have families that war with themselves, churches that war with themselves, and nations that war with themselves; until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings I'd have mesmerizing media fanning the flames. If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, and neglect to discipline emotions - just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you'd have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.


Within a decade I'd have prisons overflowing, I'd have judges promoting pornography - soon I could evict God from the courthouse, and then the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls, and church money. If I were the devil I'd make the symbols of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.


If I were the devil I'd take from those, who have, and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. What do you bet I could get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich? I would question against extremes and hard work, and Patriotism, and moral conduct. I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging more fun, that what you see on the TV is the way to be. And thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure.

In other words, if I were to devil I'd keep on doing on what he's doing.

Prophetic Flashback? - June 26, 2015 - Rabbi Jonathan Cahn - We have crossed that line, the ground has shifted, and things are not going to be the same.

should you then be surprised if the Almighty should pass judgement on that court and that nation? – "I witnessed a man in sackcloth on the steps of the Supreme Court, and a woman with a sign saying 'Don't cross this line … The next day I spoke on Capitol Hill to leaders and members of Congress. … if a nation's high court "should pass judgment on the Almighty, should you then be surprised if the Almighty should pass judgement on that court and that nation?

Prophetic Flashback? - June 26, 2015 - Craige McMcMillan - America could perhaps at some point recover from these decisions. There is. She won’t  

Good intentions along the road to hell - U.S. will not recover from week's SCOTUS decisions – During the last dozen or so years, I have become more aware of the unseen hands guiding the world’s affairs. They have a definite destination in mind.


These unseen hands don’t push ours out of the way as we study the chessboard and ready our next move. No, more often they arrange the circumstances around us to guide our own hand in the direction they will.


You may call these hands fate, destiny, God or the devil. What they are called doesn’t much matter. What they do, does.


Here, the U.S. Supreme Court’s two recent decisions on Obamacare and marriage are instructive. …


There is no moral compass guiding our nation’s decisions. The result with these finger-in-the-air types is situational ethics, contradictory laws and enforcement, and ultimately chaos – which destroys the many for the benefit of the few. Therefore, sexual license now automatically entitles one to a marriage license – which states cannot deny. Children become chattel. And that most basic right – conscience – is to be denied the many in service of the DC cocktail circuit.


If there were no supernatural element to this, America could perhaps at some point recover from these decisions. There is. She won’t. -  Website

Prophetic Flashback? - June 30, 2015 - Matt Walsh - Yes, Gay Marriage Hurts Me Personally   

“When our culture was grounded in Christian principles, we used to think of love in the way that St. Paul described it: Love is patient, love is kind, love does not boast, love is not self-seeking. Now in this progressive dystopia, love has suddenly become something that tells you to drink battery acid and die. The difference is slight, but noticeable.  …


When we’re dealing with moral quandaries — questions of right and wrong, truth and lies — it is not a legitimate argument to say “it doesn’t affect me. …Marriage is the bedrock upon which all of human civilization rests. To expand its definition into oblivion is to weaken and destabilize it. …It makes no sense. That is, until you come to understand that liberals desire not to fortify or strengthen the family, but to dismember it.”

— Matt Walsh – Public Speaker and Commentator for WND


“The Supreme Court has spoken and ruled from a position of common law - human law - that gay and lesbian couples have a fundamental right to marry. This is the highest rule that humans can make. Yet this is not the final word.


In the end, natural law, God's law will always trump common law. … God will have the final word in this matter.”

— Alvida King (1951) Christian Minister and Author


Matt's response on comments from his article, Gay Marriage Does Hurt Me Personally, And Here's Why:

There's nothing like being called a bigoted pile of garbage in the first sentence and being told in the next that love has won. Indeed, you know love has emerged victorious when a bunch of liberals are screaming in your face, calling your children ugly, and urging you to kill yourself.


Progressivism, as we've seen, is a bubbling cauldron of vile, hideous hatred. They dress it up in vacuous, absurd little symbols and hashtags and bright colors, yet the elites who drive the gay agenda are not out to spread love and happiness, but hostility and suspicion. And the obedient lemmings who blindly conform, with rainbows in their Facebook photos and chanting whatever motto they've been assigned, don't really understand what they're doing or why they're doing it. The fact that this is the same ideology to come up with vapid slogans like #LoveWins is an irony too bewildering to comprehend.


When our culture was grounded in Christian principles, we used to think of love in the way that St. Paul described it: Love is patient, love is kind, love does not boast, love is not self-seeking. Now in this progressive dystopia, love has suddenly become something that tells you to drink battery acid and die. The difference is slight, but noticeable.


Prophetic Flashback? - May 7, 2015 - Dr. Everett Piper - Oklahoma City National Day of Prayer   

Lord Forgive Us for What We've Taught Our Children "This is a prayer of confession and repentance. I offer it with a sober spirit and contrite heart. My profession, education, has failed our culture and its children and I ask you to join me in seeking God’s forgiveness today as we pray:


Oh God, of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; Creator of heaven and earth; Triune God who walked among Peter, James and John; The Word made flesh and dwelling among us; omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent Lord; We come before you and plead for forgiveness for what we have taught our children.


Forgive us for teaching them that evil is good and good is evil, that darkness is light and light is darkness, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.


Forgive us, God, for teaching them that left is right and right is wrong.


Forgive us, Heavenly Father, for teaching our sons and daughters to celebrate the original sin rather than repent of it; to eat of the fruit seeking to become as God; defiantly rising up to define what is true and false, just and unjust, male and female; good and bad. Forgive us for believing that we are ones we’ve been waiting for and that we are the change we seek.


Forgive us, Jesus, for teaching our children that a career is more important than character, that money is more important than morality, and that information is more important than integrity.


Forgive us, Holy Spirit, for accommodating lies rather than pursuing truth.


Forgive us God for teaching young men to view young women as nothing but objects of recreation for the cover of Sports Illustrated. Forgive us for teaching our young women to accept this insult to their dignity.


Forgive us for teaching the generation that follows us that it has the authority to define life for the generation that follows it. Forgive us for teaching them that “choice” gives them the power to take away the right of the weak to choose.  


Forgive us Holy God for teaching sexual promiscuity in our schools more effectively than we have taught sexual restraint to our students. Forgive us for teaching self-esteem better than we have science and civics. Forgive us for teaching values clarification more than virtue. Forgive us for diminishing the value of marital fidelity and leaving our culture clueless as to how to defend the definition of marriage.


Forgive us God for our self-refuting duplicity of teaching our children that the tolerant do not tolerate those they find intolerable and that it is not hateful to hate those they find guilty of hate.


Forgive us for dumbing down the definition of a human being to nothing but the sum total of his or her sexual inclinations; to nothing but appetites, proclivities and passions.


Forgive us for boasting of freedom while yet living in bondage to our own deception. Forgive us for championing civil liberties while yet ignoring the human rights promised to us by Scripture and our own Constitution. Forgive us for teaching that women should not be subjected to the power and the passions of men but then electing men who publically use women for their personal passions.


Forgive us for separating head from heart and fact from faith. Forgive us for severing belief from behavior and religion from reason. Forgive us for “removing the organ and yet demanding the function” – for creating “men without chests” – for the foolishness of “gelding the stallion and bidding him be fruitful.”


Forgive us for teaching our children to worship government more than God and to trust in Caesar more than Christ.


God, we ask you to forgive us for what we have taught our children. We ask that you rescue them from the ugly hell or our own making. We humbly petition you to grant a reprieve of your judgment. We ask that you give our sons and daughters liberty in Christ and rescue them from the bondage of our arrogance and pride.


Please save our kids, Oh Lord, from our lies and grant them freedom in your Truth.


In the name of Jesus Christ, The Way, The Truth and the Life, we pray:


God forgive us for what we have taught our children!

The nuns who lived with Lucia (Fatima) authored this book A Pathway Under the Gaze of Mary "if Portugal does not approve abortion, then it is safe, but if approved it will have much to suffer.


"For the sin of the person, the person is responsible and pays for it, but for the sin of the nation all the people pay for it because rulers who enact unjust laws do so on behalf of the people who elected them."


"Today Portugal is under the weight of the three social sins that require reparation and conversion: divorce, abortion, and the civil marriage between persons of the same sex. It is a great moral crisis that explains all other crises. A body sick with gangrene does better with treatments, but while the disease improves, treatment does not eradicate the source of evil, and death will be the end." - Link to Website

"They are secular progressives.” (April 20, 2015) – “They are against Americas traditions. They want to fundamentally change this country. Most of them are godless people. They are like the Democratic Party in Charlotte that booed God and they want to get rid of him in their platform. … One of the things that the secular humanist secular progressives like Obama and others want to push is sexual anarchy. They really want to force LGBT homosexual politics on America. (It is) because they hate the Christian moral standard having to do with sex, because it judges some things as moral and immoral and they can't stand that. They can't stand God telling them how ought to behave. And we of Christians in this country represent God's message of a moral standard having to do with sexuality and God's words teaches that homosexuality is a sin and they can't tolerate that. So they go after us as the messenger. …


You need to pray for our country every day. Pray for a moral and spiritual revival and renewal that we turn back to God before he destroys us. …The Bible verse that says what so every am man soweth that shall also reap, that could be applied to country. We sow in this country. Right we are sowing rebellion against God and we are going reap the consequences of that and if you look at the scriptures history is not pretty." - Link to Audio

Prophetic Flashback? - 2015 - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Address to Joint Meeting of Congress

"America and Israel, we share a common destiny" (March 3, 2015) – "America and Israel, we share a common destiny, the destiny of promised lands that cherish freedom and offer hope. … For those who believe that Iran threatens the Jewish state, but not the Jewish people, listen to Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, Iran's chief terrorist proxy. He said: If all the Jews gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of chasing them down around the world.


But Iran's regime is not merely a Jewish problem, any more than the Nazi regime was merely a Jewish problem. The 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis were but a fraction of the 60 million people killed in World War II. So, too, Iran's regime poses a grave threat, not only to Israel, but also the peace of the entire world. To understand just how dangerous Iran would be with nuclear weapons, we must fully understand the nature of the regime. …


I'm standing here in Washington, D.C. and the difference is so stark. America's founding document promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Iran's founding document pledges death, tyranny, and the pursuit of jihad. And as states are collapsing across the Middle East, Iran is charging into the void to do just that. …


Iran's regime is as radical as ever, its cries of "Death to America," that same America that it calls the "Great Satan," as loud as ever. Now, this shouldn't be surprising, because the ideology of Iran's revolutionary regime is deeply rooted in militant Islam, and that's why this regime will always be an enemy of America.


Facing me right up there in the gallery, overlooking all of us in this (inaudible) chamber is the image of Moses. Moses led our people from slavery to the gates of the Promised Land. And before the people of Israel entered the land of Israel, Moses gave us a message that has steeled our resolve for thousands of years. I leave you with his message today, (SPEAKING IN HEBREW), "Be strong and resolute, neither fear nor dread them."My friends, may Israel and America always stand together, strong and resolute. May we neither fear nor dread the challenges ahead. May we face the future with confidence, strength and hope. - Link to Video - Link to Text & Video

'Harbinger' rabbi and author warns America of 'impending judgment' - From Capitol, nation implored to 'wake up and cry out to God'  - Link to Video


“America was conceived for the purpose of God, and dedicated to His glory. Formed after the pattern of ancient Israel it was called to be a city on the hill. America has been blessed as no other nation has ever been blessed. But through much is given much is required. America as did with Israel with its blessing has been turning away from God driving Him out of its public squares. Bring in idols in its place and calling what is evil good and what is good evil. … The glory of the city on the hill is fading and America now stands in danger of impending judgment, and we all know it. And to much of the church as lost its salt and cease to do anything about it. And now the same Biblical signs of national judgment that appeared in the last days of ancient Israel are appearing on American soil. … America was blessed because of God alone. If America ever turned away from God, then the blessings of heaven would be removed from the land."

"They (the American people) were bound by the laws of God"  (July 4, 1821) – "The beginning, was the Declaration …the middle, was that sanguinary, calamitous, but glorious war, which calls for deeper colors and a brighter pencil than mine to portray: the end, was the disposal of Divine Providence, that same Divine Providence, upon whose protection your fathers had so solemnly and so effectually declared their firm reliance, of the heart of the most serene and most potent prince, to acknowledge your independence to the precise extent in which it had been declared. …


From the day of the Declaration (of Independence) … they (the American people) were bound by the laws of God (the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God), which they all, and by the laws of the gospel, which they nearly all, ' acknowledged as the rules of their conduct: They were bound by the principles which they themselves had proclaimed in the declaration. ….


Her glory (the United States) is not dominion, but liberty (biblically defined). Her march is the march of mind. She has a spear and a shield; but the motto upon her shield is Freedom, Independence, Peace. This has been her declaration; this has been, as far as her necessary intercourse with the rest of mankind would permit, her practice."

"Can we cheat history?"  (December 11, 2014) – “Every member of the Senate takes the same oath and here’s where I differ with a lot of my colleagues.  Let me read the oath to you because I think it’s part of our problem.  ‘I do solemnly swear or affirm that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.  That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same.  That I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter, so help me God.’”


Your state is not mentioned one time on that oath.  Your whole goal is to protect the United States of America, Constitution and liberties. It is not to be able to provide benefits to your state. That’s where we differ. That is where my conflict with my collogues.

The Sovereignty of God - Radio Interview (November 15, 2008) – “There are laws in the spirit realm. There are laws in the universe that God sets in place that cannot be changed. Not even by even by God himself. He could because he is sovereign and he is powerful but he will not. Because God will abide by the laws that he himself set in motion. He will submit to those laws. There are all sorts or laws. There are physical laws. There are cosmic laws that rule the celestial bodies. There are physical laws such like the laws of gravity that govern our physical world. And there are spiritual laws that God set in place and everybody has to abide by those laws, including God himself. The angels have to abide by those laws and devils and demons have to abide by those laws. So there certain things that governs everything that happens. …


The thing that people need to understand is that both God and the devil, or demons, cannot do anything unless people cooperate with them. This is a concept that a lot of people do not comprehend. They don’t comprehend it. God cannot do anything …on this earth unless man prays, and unless man cooperates. And this is something that is alien to most people. They cannot grasp that concept. They think that because God is so powerful, and he is so sovereign, he can do whatever he wants, at any time he wants, and doesn’t need anybody. …


In 2 Cornicles 7:14 if my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways then I will heal from heaven; and I will heal their land. But when that does not happen, God will not intervene. God can intervene. God can intervene right now in America. God can intervene, but is not going to happen unless there is a lot of God’s people praying and interceding and people start repenting on their sin like Nineveh. Now of course Nineveh was Old Testament but principle is the same. The principles are the same.


When a nation becomes wicked, when a nation becomes corrupted, God has no choice but to step back and let the powers of darkness do whatever they want to do. … When you hear the term ‘allows,’ is that he has no choice he cannot do anything because we have shut him out. We have shut him out of schools. We have kicked him out of schools. We have kicked him out of the government. We have kicked him out of our lives, kicked him out of everything and so he is unable. He cannot intervene. God cannot relieve his angels to minister for you because you kicked him out of your life. … It is a legal issue.


It is a legal issue. See the Lord ‘WILL NEVER’, I repeat, ‘WILL NEVER’ come into a place he is not invited. It works both ways. The devil and the demons cannot come into a house, a life, or a nation or whatever unless they are invited. And the angels of God and the Lord himself cannot come into a life, into a city, into a nation unless they are invited. It works both ways. … But the only way (back under God’s protection) it will happen is if God’s people in America will intercede and pray, that is the only way it will happen. …Most people have no idea the power of prayer.


Right now God is looking throughout America for people to stand in the gap. So he does not allow the powers of darkness that are about to ravage, ravage, and destroy this nation. God is looking for intercessors that will stand in the gap so he can send his angels from heaven and protect. Protect, a life, a protect a home, a family, protect a city, protect a nation. That is why this nation has not been destroyed so far. Because there have been people here, there have been Christians here who have been standing in the gap and they have been paying for very many years.”

Prophetic Flashback? - 2004 - Jeffry R. Nyquist

A Note After the Passing of President’s Day (February 19, 2004) – by Jeffry R. Nyquist - Providence: God, conceived of as guiding men as a race and as individuals to ends he has in view for them or as preserving individuals from danger through his prescience, loving care, or intervention.


Once upon a time the United States had a president named George W. who was sometimes suspected of stupidity. It was alleged that George W. dozed during cabinet meetings, rarely read reports and didn't write his own speeches. According to administration insiders, George W. "was, in general, an illiterate, intellectually incompetent cipher who was propped up in public by his staff." (See Joseph J. Ellis's account, The Passionate Sage, p. 69.)


The president so described was George Washington and not George W. Bush. …   


Washington believed in the protecting hand of Providence and he stated this belief in his First Inaugural Address, in which he said "it would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official Act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the Universe, who presides in the Councils of Nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect. ..." ... Is some supernatural agency in charge of history?


In closing, I will outrage the skeptics further by mentioning a dream I experienced 23 years ago. In the dream I saw the future presidents of the United States. Their portraits were lined side by side from left to right. The first in order was Ronald Reagan who had just been elected. The second was George H. W. Bush. The next two faces I did not recognize. An old man was present in the dream and I turned to him. "Where are the others?" I asked, wanting to see the rest of the future presidents. "There are no others," he replied. "After these the Republic ends."


I don't know whether my dream was inspired by a higher power, or whether it occurred after eating a bad pizza. - Link to Website

Prophetic Flashback? - 2003 - John Michael Crichton

“Today it is said we live in a secular society in which many people---the best people, the most enlightened people---do not believe in any religion. But I think that you cannot eliminate religion from the psyche of mankind. If you suppress it in one form, it merely re-emerges in another form. You can not believe in God, but you still have to believe in something that gives meaning to your life, and shapes your sense of the world. Such a belief is religious.


Today, one of the most powerful religions in the Western World is environmentalism. Environmentalism seems to be the religion of choice for urban atheists. Why do I say it's a religion? Well, just look at the beliefs. If you look carefully, you see that environmentalism is in fact a perfect 21st century remapping of traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs and myths.


There's an initial Eden, a paradise, a state of grace and unity with nature, there's a fall from grace into a state of pollution as a result of eating from the tree of knowledge, and as a result of our actions there is a judgment day coming for us all. We are all energy sinners, doomed to die, unless we seek salvation, which is now called sustainability. Sustainability is salvation in the church of the environment. Just as organic food is its communion, that pesticide-free wafer that the right people with the right beliefs, imbibe.


Eden, the fall of man, the loss of grace, the coming doomsday---these are deeply held mythic structures. They are profoundly conservative beliefs. They may even be hard-wired in the brain, for all I know. I certainly don't want to talk anybody out of them, as I don't want to talk anybody out of a belief that Jesus Christ is the son of God who rose from the dead. But the reason I don't want to talk anybody out of these beliefs is that I know that I can't talk anybody out of them. These are not facts that can be argued. These are issues of faith.


And so it is, sadly, with environmentalism. Increasingly it seems facts aren't necessary, because the tenets of environmentalism are all about belief. It's about whether you are going to be a sinner, or saved. Whether you are going to be one of the people.”

Prophetic Flashback? - 2006 - Richard “Little Bear” Wheeler

Satan has used various governments of the world to suppress people by taxing them to death, and keeping them ignorant by means of their godless government schools. - “I have come to see the real clash of the ages, involve wars and various historical circumstances, as being a clash of satan’ s versus God’s plan for man to learn and experience true liberty, by first receiving forgiveness of sins through the work of Christ on the cross, and then walking in the ‘newness of life.


Life really is that simple. Satan tries to corrupt and destroy the joy God desires for His children. Satan has used ignorance to keep people from experiencing God’s love and plan of salvation. People have groped in the darkness, being led to forfeit their God-given rights of liberty in Christ Jesus. Satan has used various governments of the world to suppress people by taxing them to death, and keeping them ignorant by means of their godless government schools. He has used anything he can to keep people from understanding that they can learn how to govern themselves from God’ great law book, the Bible.


Our Founding Fathers deliberately used the Bible as their guide. They tried to ensure that schools, likewise, use the Bible to teach Christian self-government, the true source of liberty. These Scriptural principles were so instilled in the minds of our forefathers that they would fight and die for liberty. This divine fight, however, is not easily won our arch foe is ruthless in enslaving mankind.”

Handshake Man Says He'll Steer Clear Jan. 20 - A confounding and perhaps divinely inspired Inauguration Day tradition is coming to an end: Handshake Man says he can't make it to the celebration Jan. 20. President-elect Barack Obama miss that special greeting experienced by Bill Clinton his second inauguration and George W. Bush at his first: An overcoated, entirely normal-looking man, whose only security clearance is his beatific smile, steps from the crowd after the swearing-in. He offers the new commander in chief a handshake, a medallion and a message from God. ...


He was barred from trying to attend presidential events or entering the Capitol and White House  for five years.  Then last week, Weaver says, he was watching television when another message from God came to him. "The glory of the Lord has departed from the Democratic Party," Weaver says, reading from the message. "You have chosen a secular messiah. . . . You will see the Democrats take America farther down the road to insecurity." Tough words, and Weaver says he's a little uncomfortable delivering them.  ... But a message of God must not be edited, he says. -  Link to  Website

Handshake Man gets probation - The Rev. Rich Weaver of Sacramento, known in Washington for his uncanny -- divinely inspired? -- ability to penetrate security and greet presidents, pleaded guilty Thursday to a misdemeanor charge of unlawful entry. For the next five years, while on unsupervised probation, he may not attend presidential or congressional events or set foot on the grounds of the Capitol or White House.


"I feel with all my heart that God had given me a mandate to give a message to President Bush, which I did," Weaver told The Post's David Montgomery after his sentencing in D.C. Superior Court. "I didn't feel I was guilty before God, but . . . I admitted guilt under man's laws."


The charge dated from two years ago, when Weaver attended the National Prayer Breakfast in the Hilton Washington without a ticket and slipped Bush a message that America must repent or face severe casualties in Iraq. But the Secret Service didn't lodge the charge until last month, several days before Bush's second inauguration. Weaver, 59, who had a ticket to the inauguration, was unaware he was wanted when a Capitol Police officer spotted him at a security checkpoint.


In his nondenominational ministry, Weaver said under oath, he has met six presidents on 14 occasions, usually chatting with them about Jesus. He has done the same with numerous senators and professional athletes. Link to Website

The Handshake Men - Unless your profession involves Presidential security then chances are you have neither heard of Richard C. Weaver or known how and why he earned the nickname, “Handshake Man”. Wikipedia explains:

Richard C. Weaver is a mysterious Californian man known by the nickname Handshake Man. Weaver has earned notoriety for the way he is frequently able to bypass the US Secret Service and shake the hand of the American President. Weaver has allegedly been able to personally shake hands with every US President since Jimmy Carter, in some cases even multiple times on different occasions. Not much is known about Weaver other than the fact that he is apparently a strong, possibly fundamentalist Christian of some sort. He is a self-proclaimed minister of a non-denominational church in Sacramento. His handshakes are often used as a way of passing "notes from God" to the presidents. According to his site, Richard C. Weaver is a born-again christian who...believes that God has directly spoke to him and calls him a "modern day prophet." On February 6, 2003 Weaver attended the National Prayer Breakfast meeting and was able to hand Bush an eight page typed letter about Iraq "from God." - Link to Website

Secular humanism and Christianity are on a collision course. Any system that teaches anything contrary to moral relativism — such as the Christian doctrine of absolute truth and biblical moral standards — is a threat to the entire humanistic position. And on order for humanism to bring about its desired goals, man must be stripped of his belief in God and moral absolutes. Humanism cannot prevail as long as man believes in God.


The strand of humanism runs through the fabric of many social and political movements bent on establishing a new world order. The most notable of these on the world stage today are Communism and Socialism. Their basic beliefs contain the same enmity toward God and moral absolutes as reflected in humanism.”

Prophetic Flashback? - 1984 - Yuri Bezmenov Ex-KGB defector - The demoralization process in the United States

Ex-KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov's warning to America - G. Edward Griffin's shocking video interview, Soviet Subversion of the Free-World Press (1984), where he interviews ex-KGB officer and Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov who decided to openly reveal KGB's subversive tactics against western society as a whole. Deception Was My Job (Complete) - Link to Video  - Link to Video-1


Ideological subversion – “Ideological subversion is the process which is legitimate, overt and open. You can see it with your own eyes. All you have to do -- all American mass media has to do -- is to unplug their bananas from their ears, open up their eyes and they can see it. There is no mystery. There is nothing to do with espionage.

The main emphasis of the KGB is not in the area if intelligence at all … Only about fifteen percent of time, money and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other eighty-five percent percent is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion or active measures … or psychologicall warfare.

What it basically means is to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite the abundance of information, no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interests of defending themselves their family their community, and their country.

It is a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages. The first one being demoralization. It takes from fifteen to twenty years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate on generation of students in the country of your enemy, exposed to the ideology of the enemy. In other words, Marxism, Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students, without being challenged or contra-balanced by the basic values of Americanism, American patriotism.

Most of the activity of the Department was to compile huge amount, volume of information on individuals who were instrumental in creating public opinion, publishers, editors, journalists, actors, educationalists, professors of political science, members of Parliament, representatives of business circles. Most of these people were divided roughly in two groups, those that would toe the Soviet foreign policy. They would be promoted to the positions of power through media and public opinion manipulation. Those who refused the Soviet influence in their own country would be character assassinated or executed physically, counter-revolution. ...

Because they know too much. Simply because, you see, the useful idiots, the Leftists who are idealistically believing in the beauty of Soviet socialist or Communist or whatever system when they get disillusioned, they become the worst enemies. That’s why my KGB instructors specifically made a point, never bother with Leftists. Forget about these political prostitutes. Aim higher. This was my instruction. Try to get into wide circulation, established conservative media. Reach the filthy rich movie makers, intellectuals, so-called academic circles, cynical, ego-centric people who can look into your eyes with an angelic expression and tell you a lie. These are the most recruit-able people. People who lack moral principles who are either too greedy or to suffer from self-importance, they feel that they matter a lot. These are the people who KGB wanted very much to recruit.

[To eliminate the others, to execute the others, don’t they serve some purpose? ] They serve purpose only at the stage of destabilization of a nation. For example, your Leftists in the United States, all these professors and all these beautiful civil rights defender, they are instrumental in the process of subversion, only to destabilize the nation. When the job is completed, they are none, they are not needed any more. They know too much. Some of them, when they see the Marxist-Leninists come to power, obviously, they get offended. They think that they will come to power. That will never happen, of course. They will be lined up against the wall and shot. But, they may turn into the most bitter enemies of Marxist-Leninism when they come to power. And that’s what happened in Nicaragua. ...

So, basically, you in America are stuck with demoralization. And unless, even if you start right now, here this minute, educating a new generation of Americans, it will still take fifteen or twenty years to turn the tide of ideological perception of reality and normalcy and patriotism.

The result? The result you can see. Most of the people who graduated in the 1960s, drop-outs or ‘half-baked intellectuals,’ are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, educational system. You are stuck with them. You cannot get rid of them. They are contaminated. They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern.

You cannot change their mind. Even if you expose them to authentic information, even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still cannot change the basic perception and the logic of behavior. In other words, these people — the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To rid society of these people, you need another 15 to 20 years to educate a new generation of patriotically minded and commonsense people who would be acting in favor and in the interests of United States society. …

The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already for the last 25 years. Actually, it’s over fulfilled because demoralization now reaches such areas where not even Comrade Andropov and all his experts would even dream of such tremendous success. Most of it is done by Americans to Americans thanks to lack of moral standards. As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who was demoralized is unable to assess true information. The facts tell nothing to him, even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents and pictures. ... he will refuse to believe it. Until he’s going to receives a cake in his fat bottom or a military boot crashes his bowels. …Then he will understand. That’s the tragedy of the situation of demoralization. So basically America is stuck with demoralization. … Even if you start now this minute to educate a new generation American here it will take 15 – 20 years to turn the tide ideological perception of reality back to normalcy and patriotism.

The next stage is destabilization. … What actually happens now, that unlike myself, you have literally several years to live on unless the United States wakes up. The time bomb is ticking. With every second the disaster is coming closer and closer. Unlike myself, you will have is nowhere to defect to, unless you want to live in untenable options.

This is the last country of freedom and possibility. … there must be a national effort to educate people in the spirit of real patriotism number one. And number two, explain to them the real danger of socialist communist state welfare state, big brother government. If people will fail to grasp the impending danger of that development, nothing ever can help the United States. You may kiss goodbye to your freedoms … all this freedom will evaporate in five seconds including your precious lives.

Prophetic Flashback? - 2007 - Pastor John MacArthur

A Nation Abandoned by God -  “People and nations, even the covenant nation Israel can come to a point where they are abandoned by God.  … Now I'm going to say something, you're going to have to hold on to your seat a little bit.  I'm convinced beyond doubt that in this same sense, God has abandoned America.  …  This is the most graphic and the most detailed and the most comprehensive discussion of what it means for a people, a society to be abandoned by God.  And it perfectly describes the moral chaos in our own nation today. …


Throughout history these calamities continue to even happen and they all fit in the category of God's judgment of sin.   But there's this other category of the wrath of abandonment, it is a form of God's wrath in which He lets go of a society and let's it catapult full speed without restraint in the direction of its own sinful desires and devices and choices.  …


We'd like to talk about the fact that America was founded on Christian principles and God was at the center of it, and all of that, whatever it might have been in our founding, it's no longer the way it is and I want to show you how you know that has happened.


Go down to verse 24.  You see in verse 24 the first word "therefore," this means we're now going to see a description that connects to what has been said.  If you go back to verse 18, "The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men," and we could stop at that point.  The wrath of God is revealed.  And then it goes on to talk about the wrath of God and the reasons for the wrath of God.  And then in verse 24 it then describes the wrath of God and here's the description.  "Therefore God gave them over, or God gave them up, in the lust of their hearts to impurity that their bodies might be dishonored among them, for they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator who is blessed forever, amen.  For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions, for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural.  In the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman, burned in their desire toward one another, men with men, committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.  And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind to do the things that are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, envy, full of...or evil full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice, gossip, slander, haters of God, insolent arrogant boastful inventors of evil, disobedient to parents without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful.  And although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, and not only do them, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them." …


The first thing you look for in a society you're trying to discern whether God has abandoned that society is whether or not that society has gone through a sexual revolution so that illicit sex, adultery, every form of immorality is accepted as normal in that society.  And we're there." - Link to Video     - Link to Website


“This is what it means when God abandons a society. Sexual revolution, down one more step; homosexual revolution, down one more step; you can't ever get your way out of it because the mind, the cultural mind is gone...it's gone...it's gone.  And I would put it this way, maybe simply, there's no surer indicator of a corrupted, wicked and abandoned society under God's wrath than when that society does not tolerate anger against sin.  This society will not tolerate you standing up and displaying righteous indignation against sin.”

Prophetic Flashback? - May 10, 2013 - Craige McMillan - Judgment has arrived in America

What are the How has America fallen so far, so fast? – Morally and ethically, the U.S. Supreme Court justices who voted to force states to legalize abortion are as guilty as the abortion clinics that have murdered 65 million innocents since Roe v Wade. Out of thin air, a "right" was discovered in the nation's founding documents guaranteeing that half the population could relieve itself of the consequences of an unwanted pregnancy, at the cost of another human being's life.


In place of 65 million babies that would have been, the abortion industry sprang to life. Doctors, who had sworn an oath to "do no harm" suddenly found abortion a lucrative career. Like most industries "serving" the poor, it soon demanded public subsidy for its "good works."


Enterprising politicians took this campaign blood money, blessed it at the altar of their ambitions and offered the increase that the abortion industry sought. In so doing, they slaughtered the right to conscience for American taxpayers who recognized abortion as the abomination that it was: the willful murder of innocents by that one person God most intended to protect them.


Having succeeded in destroying the conscience of this nation, those same politicians set their sights on the rest of the world. American taxpayers subsidized this, too. We exported our brutality worldwide.


Curiously silent were America's Christian churches. Beyond offering sermons or homilies on an annual right-to-life Sunday, and lighting a candle for the endless list of victims, they chose to worship as the alter of 501(c)3 IRS tax deductible contributions. Christians who did exercise their freedom of speech against abortion were marginalized by the media-wing of the abortion industry and prosecuted by the government.


The debate fell silent. Only God cared.

Eerie Bible coincidence for Hurricane Isaac? Bizarre timing has some asking: 'What are the odds?' – by Joe kovacs – A scene from 2011's Southern Decadence homosexual festival in New Orleans. The arrival of Hurricane Isaac exactly seven years after Hurricane Katrina blasted New Orleans has some people wondering if there’s more to it than random chance, and suggesting the popular homosexual festival Southern Decadence may be part of a judgment from God.


“A hurricane hitting a celebration of decadence … twice in seven years. What are the odds?” asks Robin Cox, a lifelong Gulf Coast resident. “Does it seem God has it in for New Orleans?” adds Mary Starkey. “Just contemplating why this has happened twice in seven years at exact same time of year.” ...


“New Orleans is still hosting Southern Decadence with open homosexuality manifesting in the streets of the city. It could be that God is putting an end to this city and its wickedness. The timing of Hurricane Isaac with Southern Decadence is a sign that God’s patience with America’s sin is coming to an end. … Let’s all watch this very closely, because if New Orleans is destroyed, it is a sure sign that the final judgment for the national sin of America has arrived. - Link to Website

O perpetual revolution of configured stars,

O perpetual recurrence of determined seasons,

O world of spring and autumn, birth and dying!

The endless cycle of idea and action,

Endless invention, endless experiment,

Brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness;

Knowledge of speech, but not of silence;

Knowledge of words, and ignorance of The Word.

All our knowledge brings us nearer to our ignorance,

All our ignorance brings us nearer to death,

But nearness to death no nearer to God.

Where is the Life we have lost in living?

Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?

Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?

The cycles of Heaven in twenty centuries

Brings us farther from God and nearer to the Dust.

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called "Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and for evermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.” Isaiah 9:6-7 RSV  


Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:4-5 RSV


Prophetic Flashback? ~ 1840 - Robert Dale Owen (Father of Socialism in the United States)

Account by Orestes Brownson, Robert Dale Owen's partner who later converted to Christianity -

“The great object was to get rid of Christianity, and to convert our churches into halls of science. The plan was not to make open attacks on religion, although we might belabor the clergy and bring them into contempt where we could; but to establish a system of state,—we said national—schools, from which all religion was to be excluded, in which nothing was to be taught but such knowledge as is verifiable by the senses, and to which all parents were to be compelled by law to send their children. Our complete plan was to take the children from their parents at the age of twelve or eighteen months, and to have them nursed, fed, clothed, and trained in these schools at the public expense; but at any rate, we were to have godless schools for all the children of the country, to which the parents would be compelled by law to send them. The first thing to be done was to get this system of schools established. For this purpose, a secret society was formed, a secret society was formed, and the whole country was to be organized somewhat on the plan of the carbonari of Italy, or as were the revolutionists throughout Europe by Bazard preparatory to the revolutions of 1820 and 1830. This organization was commenced in 1829, in the city of New York, and to my own knowledge was effected throughout a considerable part of New York State. How far it was extended in other states, or whether it is still kept up I know not, for I abandoned it in the latter part of the year 1830, and have since had no confidential relations with any engaged in it; but this much I can say, the plan has been successfully pursued, the views we put forth have gained great popularity, and the whole action of the country on the subject has taken the direction we sought to give it. I have observed too that many who were associated with us and relied upon to carry out the plan, have taken the lead in what has been done on the subject. One of the principal movers of the scheme had no mean share in organizing the Smithsonian Institute, and is now, I believe, one of the representatives of our government at an Italian court. It would be worth inquiring, if there were any means of ascertaining, how large a share this secret infidel society, with its members all through the country unsuspected by the public, and unknown to each other, yet all nown to a central committee, and moved by it, have had in giving the extraordinary impulse to godless education which all must have remarked since 1830, an impulse which seems too strong for any human power now to resist.


But though such an education as we are laboring to give American children in our common schools, is only fitted to make them infidels, libertines, sharpers, and rogues, I do not believe even a thoroughly religious education, given in Catholic schools by Catholic teachers and professors, would wholly remedy the evil, because the practical part of our education is never received within the school room, but at home, in the streets, in the saloons, from associates, and the general habits, manners, customs, and tone of the society in which children grow up; and because not natural training but grace alone can elevate our fallen nature to genuine virtue. The schoolhouse can never be a substitute for the church, the schoolmaster for the priest, or education for the sacraments. Nevertheless, education can do something, and it is the ordinary human mode by which we are to attempt to secure the virtue of a community. That is, a religious education, not merely instruction in simple human knowledge.


But there is no greater mistake than that of placing our chief reliance on common schools, however well organized, and however religious, or of expecting our security from the education of the mass, as seems to be the general opinion of our countrymen. With a territory stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and which will soon stretch, in all probability, from the Isthmus of Darien to the North Pole, we have not a single institution deserving the name of University; and claiming to be a reading people, we stand in regard to public libraries, the lowest on the list of civilized nations. There is not a single branch of literature or science which demands erudition for its treatment, that can be treated by the American scholar without going abroad to consult foreign libraries. No adequate provision is made for the higher class of liberal studies, for the higher branches of genuine scholarship. We have, indeed, a good military academy, a good naval school, perhaps, and some passable law schools; but in matters of political and civil administration, of statesmanship and diplomacy, we have no system of training, and are compelled to rely on ineptness and inexperience. Yet we boast of being an enlightened people. Our whole land is, so to speak, covered over with common schools, filled with common-school libraries composed of a few dozen wishy-washy volumes each, and we seem to imagine that to read, write, and cipher is all that is necessary to enlighten a people, and to make them wise and virtuous, competent to all the complicated affairs of civil and social life.”

The Virgin Mary appeared to three children, Lúcia dos Santos, Jacinta Marto, and Francisco Marto, in 1917, always on the 13th day of the month in May-October asking for people to repent and stop offending God. On July 13, 1917, Lúcia was shown in a vision and instructed… “You have seen Hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war [WWI] is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light [aurora borealis extending to Italy], know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war [WWII], famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors [Communism] throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”


Prophetic Flashback? - 1905, 1909 - President Theodore Roosevelt

"There are those who believe that a new modernity demands a new morality. What they fail to consider is the harsh reality that there is no such thing as a new morality. There is only one morality. All else is immorality. There is only true Christian ethics over against which stands the whole of paganism. If we are to fulfill our great destiny as a people, then we must return to the old morality, the sole morality. ... All these blatant sham reformers, in the name of a new morality, preach the old vice of self-indulgence which rotted out first the moral fiber and then even the external greatness of Greece and Rome."


"Progress has brought us both unbounded opportunities and unbridled difficulties. Thus, the measure of our civilization will not be that we have done much, but what we have done with that much. I believe that the next half century will determine if we will advance the cause of Christian civilization or revert to the horrors of brutal paganism. The thought of modern industry in the hands of Christian charity is a dream worth dreaming. The thought of industry in the hands of paganism is a nightmare beyond imagining. The choice between the two is upon us."

Prophetic Flashback? - 1796 - Washington's Farewell Address

I shall carry it with me to my grave, as a strong incitement to unceasing vows that heaven may continue to you the choicest tokens of its beneficence; that your union and brotherly affection may be perpetual; that the free Constitution, which is the work of your hands, may be sacredly maintained; that its administration in every department may be stamped with wisdom and virtue; that, in fine, the happiness of the people of these States, under the auspices of liberty, may be made complete by so careful a preservation and so prudent a use of this blessing as will acquire to them the glory of recommending it to the applause, the affection, and adoption of every nation which is yet a stranger to it. …


But the Constitution which at any time exists, till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all. The very idea of the power and the right of the people to establish government presupposes the duty of every individual to obey the established government. …


Let me …warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally.

This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.


… the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it. It serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.


… The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositaries, and constituting each the guardian of the public weal against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern; some of them in our country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them. If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit, which the use can at any time yield.


Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice ? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.


It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. … Who that is a sincere friend to it can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric? … As a very important source of strength and security, cherish public credit. …


Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all. Religion and morality enjoin this conduct; and can it be, that good policy does not equally enjoin it - … Can it be that Providence has not connected the permanent felicity of a nation with its virtue ? The experiment, at least, is recommended by every sentiment which ennobles human nature. Alas! is it rendered impossible by its vices?


So likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification. …As avenues to foreign influence in innumerable ways, such attachments are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and independent patriot. …


In offering to you, my countrymen, these counsels of an old and affectionate friend, I dare not hope they will make the strong and lasting impression I could wish; that they will control the usual current of the passions, or prevent our nation from running the course which has hitherto marked the destiny of nations. … guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism; this hope will be a full recompense for the solicitude for your welfare, by which they have been dictated. …- Link to Website

Two million people – the poor and the rich – appeared side by side in an avenue of Manila, holding rosaries in their hands. A major national religious service began and lasted for the next four days. There was prayer, Marian songs, while bishops and priests were conducting services at camp altars. Told so by Cardinal Sin, the religious sisters in three contemplative orders stayed ceaselessly vigilant, fasting and praying.

Twenty-five tanks and six thousand armed to the teeth ruthless professional troops were sent against the praying crowd. The two million people then knelt in the street facing the approaching tanks. … “The tanks attempted to ram into the crowd. People were praying and putting up high their Rosaries. Then a Lady of enormous splendor appeared to them…” the Cardinal told in a review. “She was beautiful, and Her eyes were shining. And that beautiful woman spoke out to the soldiers using the words: ‘Stop, my dearest soldiers! Don't go any further! Do not harm my children'. Having heard this the soldiers abandoned everything, left the tanks and joined the people” - Link to Website


Prophetic Flashback? - 1835 -  Alexis de Tocqueville  

Called by some secret design of Providence - "There are now two great nations in the world, which starting from different points, seem to be advancing toward the same goal: the Russians and the Anglo-Americans... Each seems called by some secret design of Providence one day to hold in its hands the destinies of half the world."

Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) French Author (Democracy In America)











"’History, when rightly written, is but a record of providence; and he who would read history rightly, must read it with his eyes constantly fixed on the hand of God.’ This statement of a nineteenth-century historian sums up the responsibility of the Christian teacher of history, for "he who would teach history (or any subject matter) rightly, must teach it with his eyes constantly fixed on the hand of God."


Such a task must start from a Biblical viewpoint. The French Protestant preacher Massillion wrote, ‘God, who hides himself in other events reported in our own histories, appears as revealed in [the Bible]; and it is in this Book alone that we must learn to read the histories which men have left us.’ The Bible is the only reliable and trustworthy record for interpreting the events of history. It is God's record, revealing the purpose, character, and actions of God in history. Scripture is the touchstone by which we should analyze and interpret historical data and events. ‘Scripture never offers an interpretation of facts apart from faith.’


From the Scriptures we find basic truths that may serve as the foundation of our teaching of history. The first basic truth is that God is in control of history. … God's control may take the form of caring, governing, protecting, sustaining, and preserving. He exercises His will through divine superintendence or by divine intervention …


Another foundational truth is that God has a plan for history. History is providential, not accidental. …”

— David A. Fisher, Ph.D – Professor at Bob Jones University, Author


“God knows the meaning of history better than historians do because history is ‘his story.’ He is its Author and we are its characters. It is true that human free choice moves history, but so does God … moves the plot.”

— Peter Kreeft (1937) Professor, and Christian Author (book Back to Virutue, pg. 47)


“Certain developments (events) are willed by the Lord of History, and they shall take place.”

— Stefan Wyszyński (1901-1981) Polish prelate of the Roman Catholic Church


“I believe the fact to be, that except the Bible, there is not a true history in the world.”

— John Jay (1745-1829), Founding Father, Patriot, Statesman and First Chief Justice of the Supreme Court


“History should live by that live by that life which belongs to it, and that life is God. In history, God should be acknowledged and proclaimed. The history of the world should be set forth as the annals of the government of the Sovereign King.”

— Jean-Henri Merle d'Aubigné (1794– 1872) Protestant Minister and Historian


"History as a spacious book of Providence recording how the deeds of men and nations have helped or hindered the purposes of God.”

— George Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831) German Philosopher  


"History is God's providence in human affairs."

— Daniel Webster (1782-1852) Author, Lawyer and Patriot


"America is another name for opportunity. Our whole history appears like a last effort of divine Providence in behalf of the human race."

— Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882) Author, Poet, and Philosopher


“There are too many prophetic signs admonishing us, that Almighty Providence is pre-engaged to make this a truly great nation, not to be cheered by them, and set ourselves to a search after the true principles of national welfare, with a confidence that here, at last, they are to find their opportunity. This western world had not been preserved unknown through so many ages, for any purpose less sublime, than to be opened, at a certain stage of history, and become the theater wherein better principles might have room and free development.”

— Horace Bushnell (1802–1876) Mininister and Theologian


“My experience of men has neither disposed me to think worse of them, or indisposed me to serve them; nor in spite of failures, which I lament, of errors which I now see and acknowledge; or of the present aspect of affairs; do I despair of the future. The truth is this. The march of Providence [God's work] is so slow, and our desires so impatient; the work of progress is so immense and our means of aiding it so feeble; the life of humanity is so long and are thus discouraged. It is history that teaches us to hope.”

— Robert E. Lee (1807-1870) General of the Confederate Army during the Civil War


“You will notice that while the oppressors have carried out their plans and had things their own way, there were other forces silently at work which in time undermined their plans - as if a Divine hand were directing the counter-plan. Whoever peruses the story of liberty without recognizing this feature will fail of fully comprehending the meaning of history. There must be a meaning to history or else existence is an incomprehensible enigma.”

— Charles Carleton Coffin (1823-1896) Journalist, Army Correspondent, Historian & Author


“Many historians of our day spend long hours discussing the South’s ‘States’ Rights issue and their Constitutional reasons for seceding from the Union. …I have considered it first of all from God’s perspective, not a political perspective. I must address the subject by asking how the Lord looks at wars in general and, in this case, the Civil War. … one has to consider the question: Does God intervene in the affairs of men, and wars? If so, all war? Does God choose sides in war? Does He determine the outcome? Obviously the answer to those questions is a resounding ‘Yes!’ God is sovereign, omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. Wars and their outcome are directly decided according to His will; God determines who will lose or win.”

— Richard “Little Bear” Wheeler – Author, Public Speaker and Storyteller, and Pastor (book God’s Mighty Hand, pg. 191-192)


"Divine Providence has played a great part in our history. I have the feeling that God has created us and brought us to our present position of power and strength for some great purpose. It is not given to us to know fully what that purpose is, but I think we may be sure of one thing, and that is that our country is intended to do all it can, in cooperating with other nations to help created peace and preserve peace in the world. It is given to defend the spiritual values—the moral code—against the vast forces of evil that seek to destroy them.”

— Harry S. Truman (1884-1972, 33rd President of the United States


“History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.”

— Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964) Army General, involved in war in the Philippines, World War I, World War II, & Korean War


“God never separates our economy and our morality – they are inextricably linked forever.”

— Michael Bresciani – Writer, Preacher & Publisher of American Prophet.org


“Jesus is the purest among the mighty, and the mightiest among the pure, who, with his pierced hand has raised empires from their foundations, turned the stream of history from its old channel, and still continues to rule and guide the ages”

— Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (1763-1825) German writer  


“History (is) as a spacious book of Providence recording how the deeds of men and nations have helped or hindered the purposes of God.”

— George Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831) German Philosopher


"We accept the reality of the world with which we are presented."

— Cristof (Ed Harris) (1950) Actor, Producer, Director, and Screenwriter – Movie The Truman Show


“The reason many of us find history boaring is that we fail to see the sovereign hand of God at work as history unfolds. The way you look at history depends in a large part upon your world view.”

—  John Eidsmoe,  Retired (Book Columbus & Cortez, Conquerors for Christ, pg 13)


"God is behind everything, but everything hides God.”

— Victor Hugo (1802–1885) French Poet and Novelist


“God hides in history. – Some of you are fond of history. When you come to know more and yet more about it, and can go back over long periods, you will see how one nation goes up and another goes down, and how the laws of right and wrong are simply thundered out of all through it. No nation can go on acting tyrannically, unjustly and sinfully, and not be punished for it. God is behind everything. He hides, but He is there, and the reward or punishment will surely come.”

James Hastings - The Book Of Isaiah (Children's Great Bible Texts)

“If there is a God, there is a map. If God has a map, his map is the true map.


The civilization you sit in … is now obvious in crisis, perhaps death pangs, twisting grotesquely like a dying animal, swirling down the garbage drain—this civilization was founded on God’s road map.


The most striking feature if this map is the stark fat of the Two Roads. There is the road that leads to Life, and there is the road that leads to Death. There is Good, and there is Evil. There is Right and there is Wrong.”

— Peter Kreeft (1937) Professor, and Christian Author (book Back to Virtue, pg 11.)


“It is said that the one thing we learn from history is that we don’t learn from history! The last 4,000 years of world history are full of the rise and fall of kingdoms. Many had their turns at the helm of history. But immorality, how they treated the Jewish people, or both were always the cause of their demise. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel will bring all the kingdoms of this world in subjection to His leadership. He will put an end not only to America’s dominance but an end to every kingdom as He sets up His rule.”

— Mark Biltz – Pastor of El Shaddai Ministries and Author


“History may be said to be the summation of the actions of man in time. Miracles are God’s sovereign interventions into our three dimensional world, in which this historical process has been, ever since the creation of man, realizing itself. History has a destination, even if we cannot discern it at once, and God is working in history even if his ways are difficult or impossible to recognize. But since history consists of the acts of man and miracles are the acts of God, it may be asked how the two can be brought together, and, how it is possible to probe the influence that miracles have had on the historical process of mankind. …”  (Book Understanding Miracles, How to Know if They Are from God, the Devil, or the Imagination by Zsolt Aradi, pg 285)

— Zsolt Aradi (1908-1968) Hungarian Author and Historian


"That there is one God, who made all things. That he governs the world by his providence. That he ought to be worshiped by adoration, prayer, and thanksgiving. But that the most acceptable service of God is doing good to man. That the soul is immortal. And that God will certainly reward virtue and punish vice, either here or hereafter."

— Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) Statesman, Scientist, Inventor, Printer and Philosopher


"It has been written that there are different versions of history. There are different views yes, but there is only one version of history. History is God’s providence. In every age people make choices between good and evil. It is in our collective choice that will determine our history. The choices of others from the past has been made and dutifully recorded by God in his book of life.”

— Michael A. Shea


"It is difficult for men to look into the destiny of future ages, the designs of Providence are too vast and complicated, and our own powers are too narrow to admit of much satisfaction to our curiosity. But when we see many great and powerful causes constantly at work, we cannot doubt of their producing proportionable effects."

Bishop Jonathan Shipley, the Bishop of St. Asaph (1714-1788) Clergyman in the Church in Wales


"You will notice that while the oppressors have carried out their plans, and had things their own way, there were other forces silently at work, which in time undermined their plans, as if a Divine hand were directing the counter-plan. Whoever peruses the "Story of Liberty" without recognizing this feature will fail of fully comprehending the meaning of history. There must be a meaning to history of else existence is an incomprehensible enigma.


Some men assert that the marvelous events of history are only a series of coincidences; but was it by chance that the great uprising in Germany once lay enfolded, as it were, in the beckoning hand of Ursula Cotta? How happened it that behind the passion of Henry VIII. for Anne Boleyn should be the separation of England from the Church of Rome, and all the mighty results to civilization and Christianity that came from that event? How came it to pass that, when the world was ready for it, and not before ... Men act freely in laying and executing their plans; but behind the turmoil and conflict of human wills there is an unseen power that shapes destiny-nations rise and fall, generations come and go; yet through the ages there has been an advancement of Justice, Truth, Right, and Liberty. To what end? Is it not the march of the human race toward an Eden of rest and peace?


If while reading this " Story" you are roused to indignation, or pained at the recital of wrong and outrage, remember that out of endurance and sacrifice has come all that you hold most dear; so will you comprehend what Liberty has cost, and what it is worth."

Charles Carleton Coffin (1823-1896) Civil War Correspondent, and Author (book The Story of Liberty)


“We cannot break the Commandments, we can only break ourselves against Them. Written another way we cannot break God’s Laws, we can only break ourselves against them.”

“From the Scriptures we find basic truths that may serve as the foundation of our teaching of history. … God's control may take the form of caring, governing, protecting, sustaining, and preserving. He exercises His will through divine superintendence or by divine intervention; it may involve God's "general" care as evidenced through His creation or by His "special" care, as demonstrated by His supernatural power.


God's rule is over all--nature, animal life, people, and nations. We must be careful not to assign the providence of God solely to His dealings with the people of God. There is a danger in overemphasizing "sacred" history to the neglect of "secular" history. In doing so, we might give our students the wrong impression that God is only in control of those things related to the church. All history is under God's control, both secular and sacred.


Another foundational truth is that God has a plan for history. History is providential, not accidental. … This carries the connotation of forethought or foresight to attain a particular end or goal. What a beautiful picture this is of God's role in history. His omniscient foresight orders, sustains, and cares for His creation, accomplishing His divine purpose. "Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world" (Acts 15:18).


Many today, however, would have us believe that an indescribable fate determines the course of history. Man's destiny is left to mere chance. History is viewed as a series of unrelated circumstances. But to the one who seeks to discern the hand of God, history will have purpose, meaning, and direction.”

David A. Fisher, Ph.D - Professor at Bob Jones University, Author


"The destiny of America was divinely decreed. The events which established our great nation were foreknown to God and revealed to prophets of old. As in an enacted drama, the players who came on the scene were rehearsed and selected for their parts. Their talents, abilities, capacities, and weaknesses were known before they were born.

As one looks back upon what we call our history, there is a telling theme which recurs again and again in this drama. It is that God governs in the affairs of this nation. As the late J. Reuben Clark, Jr., has said, 'This is the great motive which runs through our whole history.'"

Ezra Taft Benson (1899-1994) Secretary of Agriculture under Dwight D. Eisenhower & President of the LDS Church

“All that we call human history - money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery - is the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.”

— C.S. Lewis (1898 -1963) Irish Writer, Scholar & Christian Apologetic


“The denial of God springs from a man’s desire not to have a God — from his wish that there were no Justice behind the universe, so that his injustices would fear not retribution; from his desire that there be no Law, so that he may not be judged by it; from his wish that there were no Absolute Goodness, that he might go on sinning with impunity.


That is why the modern atheist is always angered when he hears anything said about God and religion — he would be incapable of such a resentment if God were only a myth. His feeling toward God is the same as that which a wicked man has for one whom he has wronged: he wishes he were dead so that he could do nothing to avenge the wrong.


The betrayer of friendship knows his friend exists, but he wished he did not. The post-Christian atheist knows God exists, but he desires He should not.?”

Prophecy - The Term, Division, Recipient of Prophecy, Gift of Prophecy

As the term is used in mystical theology, it applies both to the prophecies of canonical Scripture and to private prophecies. Understood in its strict sense, it means the foreknowledge of future events, though it may sometimes apply to past events of which there is no memory, and to present hidden things which cannot be known by the natural light of reason. … The gift of prophecy is an extraordinary grace bestowed by God. It has never been confined to any particular tribe, family, or class of persons. … "The recipients of prophecy may be angels, devils, men, women, children, heathens, or gentiles; nor is it necessary that a man should be gifted with any particular disposition in order to receive the light of prophecy provided his intellect and senses be adapted for making manifest the things which God reveals to him. Though moral goodness is most profitable to a prophet, yet it is not necessary in order to obtain the gift of prophecy." - Link to Website
