Let me begin by saying that yes, I know I've already posted a rather long article today, for those of you who visit this site daily, but something just happened that compelled me to sit down, and bleed the following words onto the screen.
I am also well aware that if there are those of you, out there in cyberspace, still on the fence in regards to my sanity, giving me the benefit of the doubt, the following might push you over the edge. So before I lose my resolve, before I chicken out, before I unplug this apparatus and go make myself a cup of cocoa, I will venture on and say what I need to say.
I was at a friend's house no less than an hour ago, just visiting, when as he was channel surfing he happened upon a major cable news network that was interviewing a very prominent American evangelist, who also happened to be an authority on Bible Prophecy. The topic was 'the end of days' and after giving each other a look that said, 'this ought to be good', we settled in and started watching.
Near the end of the interview, the evangelist was asked if American was named anywhere in the Bible, and with the straightest face humanly possible, he said, 'no, America is not mentioned anywhere in the Bible, although Syria, Iran and Russia are.'
I liken his answer to a purely fictional story I just made up in order to illustrate the absurdity of his answer.
The story goes as follows:
A man stormed into his best friend's house, out of breath, and with a beaming smile said, 'come with me right now, there' s something I have to show you!' Because he was a good friend, the man grabbed his coat, and followed the man who had burst into his home, got into his car and they drove to a beautiful meadow, a section of which was fenced in, and within the fenced area there was a beautiful horse.
"Wow, that's a beautiful horse," the man's friend said, "it was worth the drive, that is a spectacular animal."
"I didn't bring you out here for the horse", his friend answered sternly, handing him a magnifying glass, "look at the fleas on the horse, I brought you to see the fleas."
I realize the absurdity of the story, but trust me, it makes a valid point.
We know that God does not make mistakes, He does not overlook, or otherwise omit the most important events concerning these end times. Now, let's be honest, comparatively speaking nations like Syria, or Iran are fleas in comparison to the impact the importance and the relevance America has had, and continues to have on the global scene for the past couple centuries, yet we focus on these 'fleas', finding them readily throughout the Word, all the while refusing to see that 'the horse' is more prominently mentioned in various places throughout the Bible.
In most men's minds, I believe it is the fear of facing the truth, that keeps them from seeing it on the written pages of the Bible, but as for myself, I would rather know an unpleasant truth, than believe a sugar coated lie.
I have begun a study, which with the help of God I will finish shortly on America in Bible prophecy, and will be posting it on the Hand of Help website, as soon as it is finished.
To be honest, I just had to get that off my chest so I could sleep tonight. I leave you with the peace, grace, wisdom, and mercy of our heavenly Father, and if you think less of me for having posted these thoughts, so be it.
With love in Christ,
