What’s on the Next Horizon?
Lord what’s next on the horizon? Surly persecution for sure! Our nation has been toppled and is no more!
We were conquered from within, from without and there is no hope for our nation as a nation under God!
Could it be Lord that You abandon us? Certainly, we have grieved you as a people, as a Church, as Christians!
So, I might say that we first have abandon You and Your response was to be silent and apparently let the enemy come in and take us over!
But God our hope is not in man! We can never hope in man! Our time as a leading nation has gone by the wayside! It’s gone forever!
Yes, the moral decay was at first creeping and then it gained steam and so the radicals suppressed our moral expression of righteousness and now we will be targeted and persecuted!
There is no way out except that You protect us Lord! Your angles are there standing by!
O Lord use Your angles and whatever power to protect us against the enemy because they will swoop in on us with no mercy! None!
They will attack and destroy without mercy and control every thought, action and freedom we once had and force us into slavery!
And the churches are lukewarm and sitting on the sidelines, fearful to say anything about righteousness because the government is in control and will take away more freedoms by striking one by one the amendments of our Constitution to the grave as they stack the courts!
What hope do we have dear Lord? Our politicians are dishonest, traitors and empty of any moral truth and ramble on with babbling random speech!
The politicians are agreeing with the drum beats of the wicked, that there is no help from their God! They say there is no deliverance from us who now rule you with an iron fist and rod and will force you into subjection!
O Lord please step in as we can hardly believe our eyes, part of my soul was lost, my thoughts of Freedom were destroyed instantly! An avalanche of wickedness hit us from all sides with no let up and it will continue Lord unless You intervene!
Lord we can line up with those that oppose the wicked, but are they really serving You! We can join the opposing movements but Lord Jesus, if You are not on our side and we do not confess our sins in humility, then we are defeated!
Lord, silence our ungodly enemies! Salvation only belongs to You and no one else! Save us O Lord from the persecution that will come upon us soon! Here our cries dear Lord and deliver us from our enemies!
3 Lord, how they have increased who trouble me!
Many are they who rise up against me.
2 Many are they who say of me,
“There is no help for him in God.”

How would You answer Someone that Responds Like This?
This conversation started by asking the question: Can you name all the democrats in this picture? You be the judge who won the debate. I noticed that not one single Christian gave any support for my arguments! However, the lewd, those that mocked Christians were the only ones who gathered together like bullies trying to squelch God’s Word. Again, Christians usually don’t support Christians in the battle against evil but sit on the sidelines!
My response is in Green and the Unbeliever’s response is in Orange.
Unbeliever’s response: Can you ForHimForever name the genocidal god who ordered this slaughter? “Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.”
SPOILER: It was GOD the unforgiving, genocidal sadist!
My Response: God used Israel to destroy the ungodly nations! When God determined that sin overflow His cup of patience. See verse 16 as an example, God waited until the iniquity of the Amorites were complete.
12 Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, horror and great darkness fell upon him. 13 Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. 14 And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions.
16 But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.”
18 On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates— 19 the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadmonites, 20 the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, 21 the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.”
If you think God was unfair with other nations than look how God judged the Jews in scripture! God sent them into Babylonian captivity for 70 years. Do a look up of this on the internet!
But don’t stop there, before Abram, God also destroyed the entire world in a flood and only eight were saved in Noah’s days! And God is ready to judge again for man’s wickedness in the end times!
Matthew 24:37 As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be at the coming of the Son of Man.
You or me didn’t make the rules or the laws and know how and when God judges.
If you don’t think God’s judgement is on the horizon then live in sin and rebel against God!
God works with people but when they deliberately rebel then God gives them over to their passions of rebellion!
Romans 1 24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves …
What are you going to say when the Seven-Year-Tribulation comes upon this earth? You say God is unfair? From seal judgment #4 to through Trumpet judgement #6 over half the world has been killed.
You don’t like it? Is it make believe? I don’t think any of us want this to happen but it’s coming.
Unbeliever’s response: ForHimForever Why do you worship a god – that, according to the bible, had children and babies slaughtered? Why would any sane person choose to worship such an unforgiving, sadistic, sociopathic god?
My Response: What’s your alternative for judging sin? You just can’t see that can you? What are you going to do in the Seven-Year-Tribulation? How are you going to escape? Please tell me?
Unbeliever’s response: Answer my question. Why do you worship a god that has children and babies slaughtered, and why should any sane person choose to worship such a sadistic, unforgiving sociopathic god?
My Response: I assume that you don’t want sin judged?
Unbeliever’s response We have secular laws. Now answer my question. Why do you worship a god that has children and babies slaughtered, and why would any sane person choose to worship such an unforgiving, sadistic sociopathic god?
My Response: What does that mean we have secular laws? Why did you not answer my question on how would you judge sin? And do you worship Satan? And how you going to make it through the seven-year-tribulation?
Unbeliever’s response: Here’s an easier one for you ForHimForever Is your supposed God omniscient and omnipotent?
My Response: Can you tell me which god you worship? Is it Satan?
Unbeliever’s response: ForHimForever Seems my questions are too difficult for you to give a sane, humane or honest reply to. Instead you move the goalposts, assert red herrings etc. sigh …. typical christian apologetics. Let me know when you pluck up the courage to answer my questions…….
My Response: Let me know when you are ready to answer my questions, Are you a worshiper of Satan, and do you believe God is real? How will you survive the seven-year-tribulation? And how would you judge sin?
Unbeliever’s response: I’m a non believer in any god or gods including Satan, and I wouldn’t slaughter children and babies like the god you worship does.
Now answer my 2 questions:
(1) Why do you worship a god – that, according to the bible, had children and babies slaughtered?
(2) Why should any sane person choose to worship such a sadistic, unforgiving, sociopathic god?
My Response: Do you believe in abortion?
Unbeliever’s response: Either answer my 2 questions or I’m done wasting my time on an apologist like you
My Response: I bet you believe in abortion and so you are guilty too if you do believe in killing babies. Your arguments are mute.
Unbeliever’s response: You lost kid, and now you’re done.
My Response: Let me answer it this way.. Jesus died for my sins and paid my judgment in hell for my sins! That is the God I worship.
My Response: Who lost the argument? Psalm 14:1 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God ..
What is the First Commandment?
I was reflecting on a passage in Mark 12:28 about a Scribe asking Jesus what Is the First Commandment of All?
Notice how Jesus answers… He not only gave the true answer of the 1st Commandment love God above all but gave the second Commandment and love your neighbor above all!
And what startled me was that the scribe really understood and reflected back and additional understanding to Jesus and added to love God and neighbor “is more than all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
And so, Jesus said “You are not far from the kingdom of God.”
So, I was reflecting on that answer Jesus gave and thought to myself oh this Scribe looked to me like he was saved but to Jesus he was not!
And then I was meditating later on in the evening before going to bed, I said to Jesus, Oh Lord I wish I had an Ed Miller a someone I knew earlier in my Christian life to ask this question to! When Jesus answers like that, a person starts to reflect on his own soul and wonder, am I really saved? If Jesus probes into a heart and detects that a man that spoke so good like the Scribe and was not saved than what is my chance of being saved and what about all this appeal of free grace coming from the pulpit really doing to people? Are they really getting saved!
Then out of the quietness of the questioning and really praying to Jesus, these verses came to mind!
I asked Jesus over and over again, what was this guy missing?
Then I remembered David saying this when He was caught in sin.
16 For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;
You do not delight in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
A broken and a contrite heart—
These, O God, You will not despise.
The scribe only quoted the first half of his understanding but did not submit to Jesus in repentance of sin of a broken spirit and heart.
Let that be a lesson for you!
Pray to be counted worthy to pass God’s Truth around even to your last dying breath into life!
Here is one New Year’s Resolution you haven’t heard of!
The list is usually something along these lines, weight loss, disciplining self in various ways like spending less and saving more. The list is usually something of self improvement.
But have you thought about “Crowns“? You say, what’s that? My preachers never mentioned anything about that!
What Crowns will you have to give back to Jesus at the Judgement seat of Christ?
Since you will spend all your time in eternity, shouldn’t you examine the Five Crowns below and see which crowns you might be able to achieve thru the Holy Spirit?
For example there is an
- Incorruptible Crown for those that master their sinful nature!
- Another is the Crown of Rejoicing, named the soul winner’s crown where there is a willingness to speak to the lost and lead them to salvation that are precious in the sight of Jesus returning.
- There’s the Crown of Life for those that endure trials!
- And the Crown of Glory for ministers who faithfully feed the flock of God.
- And finally the Crown of Righteousness for those who look forward to the day when He will return for His saints.
