Mind you, this will not happen soon (in the next few decades, that is) - I think it is still a good 40-50 years out before we begin to see the beginnings of the real terror. In those days it won't be possible to get a job without an official denunciation of Jesus Christ and a registered separation from the Christian "caliphate" or whatever it will be called. Think of the questions when filling out a job application today: "Have you ever been convicted of a felony?" Now imagine: "Do you consider yourself a present adherent to the Christian faith and its ideologies?" and "Do you now or have you ever monetarily or otherwise supported a Christian mission organization? If so, please list the name(s) of these organizations in the space provided." Any answer in the affirmative will not only constitute immediate dismissal, but alert CPS to begin motions of removing your children on grounds of "abuse of intellect and hate-indoctrination"

I do agree with you in that the United States (as we know and identify it today) will not be around in the end. I think DC will have long ago merged with the Transatlantic-Pacific Global Union - or whatever they will call it - and be headquartered somewhere else, most likely overseas in Belgium or Luxemburg somewhere. There will be the true Christian remnant, as always - in labor camps, meeting secretly underground in scattered clandestine pockets, etc. The demoninations will all be gone. What's left will be raw devotion to Jesus Christ. Sorry to sound so orwellian, but I can't deny what I feel I see. Especially in light of the Word of God, and in past history of how Christians were treated in other countries. What makes the USA exempt from reciprocal judgment?

 Re:

Paul I would agree with you. But I think the acceleration will be much quicker. More like 10 to 20 gears if not sooner. Something like an economic melt down can bring about martial law real quickly. In such a scenereo believers may be required to take a loyalty oath to the state.

Of course only my humble insight.

The reason I give it more than 50 years is because it will take about that long to completely weed out any trace of generational Christian sympathy among those in political office and mainstream media. It takes time. Even now, federal and state beaurocrats have children and grandchildren who may attend a youth group at some church which still holds relatively "conservative" views pertaining to abortion, same sex, separation of church and state, etc. I think these will have to all but completely disappear before the real persecution begins. I think that after 20 years there still may be too many "nominal believers" unwilling to bend the knee. They still remember how their parents and grandparents raised them and their consciences, although seared, are not entirely obliterated in terms of allowing the full-blown persecuation and terror of which we are discussing. As such, it will still be profitable for politicians to ride the conservative bandwagon and pull the "Christian" ticket during elections. But as more decades go by, the public sentiment and alliance to conservative Christian ideology will decrease to the point of a general loathe and then to outright incrimination. Christianity will be seen as a dangerous form of religious facism, and its supporters treated as such.

An entirely "New Pharoah" and his generation will eventually come into power who never knew Joseph and his family. This generational shift literally took several hundreds of years, based off the Exodus account. I don't think it will take hundreds of years in the United States, for the godless trend of not knowing Jesus and His family is already well-advanced and much aggression and hatred is being expressed and legislated even now as we speak. But there is still a generation and their children and grandchildren who are being exposed to and made familiar with the benevolent tenets of Christianity (i.e. how to use it to their advantage) through frothy top 40 music and commercial sentimentalism. We still have a ways to go before all this is also rooted-out and anathematized from the mainstream. And then the real persecution will come: the discrimation, the charges of being enemies of the state, the confiscation of believers' children and homes, the incarceration in labor camps, the government-sanctioned beheadings.

My thoughts, brother.
