 What Does America See in 2010 and Beyond? by Rev Michael Bresciani

What Does America See in 2010 and Beyond?
By: Rev Michael Bresciani
Few Americans in today’s political and moral climate have any doubt that our light has seriously dimmed. At no time in our history more than now does it appear that we have brought on an administration that seems to think that it has been given a mandate to make its mark on America. More than a “change” we can believe in, this has become a change we can hardly endure.

We have taken to reeling instead of standing as an example to the rest of the world. This administration is spending like a drunk out on the town all the while blaming the former administration for the deficits it is incurring. Liberal’s dimmest minds have conspired to advance their long awaited agenda on a citizenry that was always suspicious of it and of late has begun to cringe at its application.

Missouri has emphatically declared that being forced to buy insurance coverage from the fed under Obamacare is an idea whose time must not be allowed to come. Arizona remains defiant under the brave leadership of Jan Brewer even as that state is nearly under siege from a foreign power. Seven million people in California have been upstaged by one homosexual judge who thinks their carefully placed votes have no voice at all in the will of the people.

Attorney General Holder has decided that America has never faced up to its racism but it is apparent that he has never faced up to the fact that he missed basic colors in grade school. America is more concerned with green and red than with black and white at this juncture in our history. We know the green of our dollars is not a bottomless pit of wealth that cannot be exhausted. We also know that the red blood of many Americans shed throughout the world was to preserve individualism and free enterprise, not big government, socialism or ideologies not set forth by our founding fathers.

What is being done to America is as hard to believe as what is being proposed, as in placing a Muslim Mosque across the street from one of the most sacred sites in the entire United States known as “Ground Zero.”

Now there’s the plan to spend 4.3 billion dollars to ensure kids have a more healthy lunches in our schools. Feeding them twisted history, Godless claptrap and socialistic philosophies can be overlooked for a few wholesome veggies on their plates.

We have a liberally biased media that has done everything but sign a contract in which they promise to tell us everything but the truth. Hollywood takes up the cause of socialisms twin, the moral decline, as it always has, to blast our children with fantasy, sleaze and violence all in the name of that high holy and sacred pastime we call, entertainment.

It is hard to impress the world with our moral stand if we are seen to be always staggering from the weight of the much touted “change we can believe in.”

But wait, America it seems is about to make some changes that it can believe in, or at the least can live with. The one party system in the hand of this administration has been making its mark but it turns out to be more of a whipping. This unrestrained beating seems to be facing an angry citizenry that is now approaching close enough to the tormentor in the upcoming midterm elections to be able to snatch the whip right out of the hand of the administration. This would be a start but not a complete solution. There are many who are not sure we can survive the damages already done to our fiscal well being. The moral decline is another matter.

Preachers of the gospel who have not sold out to the apostasy of the hour are still proclaiming that one inalterable truth, that a nations well being is always inextricably linked to its morality. It may be hard to convince someone in Hollywood who spends 800 million dollars to produce a movie that by even the weakest moral codes may not be worth fifty cents. It is even harder to convince an administration that has laden trillions of dollars of future debt on our children that someday the bill will come due.

The day is finally here when those with a prophetic calling must admit that anyone, even politicians, newsmen or pundits that have opened their eyes and are proclaiming that the nation is turning the wrong way, are our compatriots in the noblest cause of all. One thing is sure in the business of prophetic warnings, seeing is step one in the process. Long before they were called prophets they were called “seers.” (1 Sam 9:9) They were gifted with unrestrained, unbiased and accurate sight. Those who “see” are still the last best resort in times of deep trouble.

The only difference, according to the scriptures, between the average man and the prophet is that God allows some people to see, but he commands the prophet to see. The best example of this is seen in the eighth chapter of the book of the prophet Ezekiel.

Ezekiel was commanded to go and actually observe what the priests and civil authorities were engaged in and then prophesy to them in a stern call to repentance. Should they object to his prophecies he was armed with the eyewitness reports that God had arranged for him to have in hand.

Did they repent? Sadly, we must report that they did not and it resulted in the demise of their nation. That demise has lasted for centuries and not until the British mandate of 1948 has it seen a remedy. Only now that Israel is once again a free and independent nation has God begun again to deal with her in a favorable way.

Prophets of old were like the ancient mariner’s chart, compass and sextant. Today they can be likened to radar, sonar and GPS tracking systems that tell us where we want to go but more importantly they tell us, where we don’t want to go. It would seem that a nation willing to dismiss the scriptures, the constitution and its own history so readily would not pay much heed to a few vociferous prophets. This dismissal could result in our own demise and can only be done at our own peril.

What happens at the polls in 2010 may be the first sign of whether anyone is listening to her prophets or anyone else for that matter. It will only be a first step, but it will be a welcomed step for those who want to see America continue to make a mark in the world rather than being marked up with the bruises and gashes from an unwanted ideology that has left other countries in utter ruin.

Subjectivism and sensationalism is never allowed in the mindset of a real prophet otherwise they could not start any proclamation with the familiar “thus saith the Lord.” The result of unheeded prophecy is known by all but it is never because the prophecies were not known. It was always because the prophecies went unheeded.

So what happened to Israel in Ezekiel’s day? It is not a pretty sight, even though it was completely avoidable. The warnings in Ezekiel eight capitulated to the judgments seen in chapter nine. Ezekiel exclaimed, “Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The Lord hath forsaken the earth, and the Lord seeth not. And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.” (Eze 9: 9, 10)

Rather than “change we can believe in” we had better shift to “change we can’t afford not to make” in 2010 and 2012 respectively in order to avoid the same fate as our ancient counterpart and modern ally known as the nation of Israel. May God help us!

Judgment is at the door for this country;
GOD will shake everything that can be
shaken; especially denominations, and only
the true fruit will remain.
Judgment begins with the house of the LORD.
Those who peddle the gospel for gain,
those who compromise the earnest truth;
those who tolerate hypocrisy, injustice,
sin, and unrighteousness will be the first
to go.
There is a remnant of those who are called
by HIS Name; who honor and hunger for HIS
truth, who love righteousness and are zealous
for good works. GOD will defend, deliver,
keep, and preserve those who have suffered
much for HIS cause, HIS glory, and HIS
kingdom!!

 Re: What Does America See in 2010 and Beyond? by Rev Michael Bresciani

While I intend to make my voice heard at the polls, I know in my heart that this is not the answer, only and bandaide.

2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

It is not the fault of a faulty president, or any elected official that is bringing the USA down, but the fact that the church has been just like the world. We are responsible for the state of the world around us.

I have read recently about the Chinese, and Korean revivals and have been utterly convicted by how focussed and burdened they were to see change in peoples hearts. It is change in the inner man that changes the world around us. There were places where the entire town shut down to go to prayer meetings. All the bars closed permanently.

It is useless to blame anybody but ourselves for the state of this country. We have not been faithful on our watch. The good news is we can become faithful. But are we willing to inconvenience ourselves? Miss our favorite TV program to pray? Be shut in with God. Are we willing to fast, and weep between the porch and altar until we feel like we are going to die with the burden. Or are we like the days of Noah?

Mat 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

I can tell you that when the church wakes up things will be different, not until. We had a prayer meeting for 2 years an usually only 3 people would interrupt their lives to attend. If you call a prayer meeting how many will be there, the first week, at the end of the month, at the end of a year? Not many huh?

Unfortunately nobody gets serious until everything is falling apart. We falt Israel for her turning away from God when He showed her so many amazing miracles, but we are just as distracted as she was.

It is time to wake up church. It is time to prophecy to those dry bones. Now is the time. Amen?

 Re:

Amen, Kathy!

The writer in the lead post is suggesting one go to the polls to assert their influence, but it does not work.

I have seen too many 'conservative' politicians bow to the rhetoric of the ungodly and allow its philosophy guide theirs'. Especially Missippi politicans. In philosophy they are conservative but in lifestyle they mimic Hollywood, except for the current governor - never heard anything scandalous about him - yet. (One upbeat note: years ago MS had a good governor, Kirk Fordice, but he fell into sin, like David. He divorced his pretty wife, Pat, to marry an old childhood flame. In time this relationship soured and they divorced. He then was reconciled with his first wife, Pat, the family and God. As I understand it, the family had not cease to pray for him. Strange things still happen in the most unlikely places.)

Remember Gov. John Ashcroft from MO? He was an AOG preacher. He failed in his run for the presidency in the primaries but then served as the attorney general to Pres. Bush. He was forced to compromise all over the place...The hostility he evoked from liberal lobbyists, politicians was shameful.

Yes, the solution to the spiritual problems cannot be fixed by ousting the current politicians from office and replacing them with others. The solution resides within the hearts and minds of those who consider themselves to be God's people.

We can pray, repent of our sins but how many times do we go out and buy products that will undermine holiness, that will finance ungodliness? What about the music? are these performers godly? do they demonstrate holiness in their lifestyle? or how about the fashions we use to dress our bodies? Do they reflect the latest trends that feed lusts? or, how important is that I have the latest gizmo, be it phones, computers or cars or trucks or sporting equipment - adult toys....do I serve things or do things serve ME? This is where the rubber meets the road. It all begins and ends with the individual - you cannot blame anyone else. God will take care of the government, we are incapable of doing so beyond praying for them but we can do something about our own decisions.

My thoughts on this issue....

 Re: What Does America See in 2010 and Beyond? by Rev Michael Bresciani

First of all "IF" repentence comes, God is able to relent. Even, as in the book of Revelation, when horror and death, heat and plague fell upon mankind, they cursed God, rather than repent unto His Holiness, as Heaven stood astonished at their insolence.

I do not see it happening. 9-11 was the open gate to the end...and for a few weeks, people feared, but then when they felt comfortable and secure again...."We're America, after all"....well, business as usual.

The four sins of Babylon....MURDER [50 million babies]
FORNICATION [everywhere]
THEFT[banking system]
DRUGS AND SORCERY [everywhere]

America calls these liberty.The politicians and representatives spin solutions without a thought of God's solution. Repent.

We cascade into the abyss...we have but a short time until we begin to unravel, and then it will speed up, faster and faster until we see the armies invade, 100 million dead, pestilence and horror; torment.

In the midst of this: Isaiah 24:1, their will yet be a faithful remenant here, a Godly seed, with Godly shepherds who will guide them into Jesus's security.

Knowing Jesus on an individual level is imperitive for the ultimate survival: Entering into Heavens gate with a welcome from the King. These are the times that the 10 virgins form their character, to be able to carry God's oil thru until the end.

"He that endures until the end, it is the same that shall be saved."....Jesus
