Everywhere we look, in every aspect of life, the effects of a world gone mad have dangerously manifested. We are living in very perilous times (2 Timothy 3:1). Beginning especially with Bill Clinton's Administration, this country has slid into a blatant in-your-face quagmire of immorality. It is rare today to see common courtesy, decency and respect for our fellow man. It seems that anything goes as long as it is indecent and destructive.
The concept of being honorable is a trait that is rarely taught anymore, unless you are blessed to come from a good conservative and/or Judeo-Christian background, and even then-it depends on the character of the parents. Insurrection, bullying and violence are encouraged by liberal "progressive" activists posing as teachers, college professors and others who have slithered their way into the halls of education, media, government jobs and anywhere else they can infiltrate.
Make no mistake about it, these are radical godless individuals have no respect for individual freedoms and liberty (except for their own of course). These propagandists want to see our country fall more deeply into a precipitous decline.
The media are nothing less than political obstructionists-revolutionaries determined to take this country down. They are ruled by hatred and a dangerous ideology of hardcore socialism. They have a warped concept of reality that fuels their godless agendas, insanely defending anything that is detrimental to our safety and well-being-which includes lawless "sanctuary cities" and illegal immigration; hiding (under reporting) the identity of illegal aliens and Muslims who have harmed people, and playing down the seriousness of dangerous criminal gangs made up of illegal aliens. The subversive conditions we see in this country, and throughout the world are in-line with God's prophetic schedule just as the prophet Isaiah forewarned:
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" (Isaiah 5:20)
When the media can constantly and relentlessly slander the sitting president-an American president and all those who support him; when our duly-elected president can be outrageously stalked by a Soviet-style bogus "special counsel" using extra-constitutional techniques-out to get him no matter what. When bought and paid for dumbed-down masses are encouraged to loudly chant obscenities in public venues and cause physical harm to those who love this country and want it to thrive-we have a world on the brink of extreme chaos and lawlessness.
Sadly, the immoral and irreverent conditions we see today have also greatly affected the Christian community. We see turncoats everywhere. Turncoats who have betrayed Jesus with their false teachings and self-serving religiosity; professing Christians who are selling the "Me" gospel and have no qualms about stomping on others to get their way.
The most recent public exposé of false Christians is a Word of Faith cult, more specifically-the Word of Faith Fellowship located in Spindale, North Carolina-which has hundreds of members and branches in other countries. They have been recently exposed for years of terror unleashed upon their congregants "in the name of the Lord." It sounds like their lord is the devil himself.
According to interviews of ex-congregants, it has been reported that at the Word of Faith Fellowship members have been regularly punched, smacked, choked, slammed to the floor or thrown through walls in a violent form of deliverance meant to "purify" sinners by beating out devils, 43 former members told the Associated Press in separate, exclusive interviews. Victims of the violence included pre-teens and toddlers-even crying babies, who were vigorously shaken, screamed at and sometimes smacked to "banish" demons. The church's leader, is a woman by the name of Jane Whitley. 
Fear and intimidation have kept the majority of the congregant's quiet; many sold their homes and joined the church and felt they had nowhere else to go. Many were so browbeaten and intimidated that they lost their ability to think clearly and realize the full travesty of their situation. Cult leaders are experts at breaking down the psyche and will of their victims. The behavior and response of the victims is similar to the Stockholm Syndrome where captives develop a psychological alliance with the captor (s) in order to survive.
Looking from the outside in, when the unsaved see another cult rise to shame (another group of whacked out false evangelicals), many of them will think all professing Christians are tainted-a tragic situation cleverly engineered by the enemies of the Cross. Another black eye for true Christians and for the cause of Christ-all because of the wicked people who use the Lord's name to inflict their dastardly deeds. Only evil accomplices of the devil would use the Lord's name to abuse and terrorize innocent victims in a "Christian" ministry.
All enemies of Christ will be together during the Tribulation years. The prophesied one-world-church will be eagerly embraced by those who distort God's holy Word. The reward for their apostasy will be going through the seven-year Tribulation, a harrowing time of unprecedented pandemonium and tyranny. All those who do not come to genuine faith in Christ and repent during those years-will ultimately spend all eternity in the lake of fire, with no chance of pardon or escape.
Zero Hedge reported on July 20, 2017 that our country has a serious drug problem, "An opioid crisis" -which began to escalate around the beginning of Obama's first term in office; that is when deaths from drug overdoses started to climb. Now, after recording nearly 60,000 drug-related deaths in 2016, drugs are the biggest killer of prime-age Americans.
I was shocked to learn that America has more drug overdose deaths than any other developed country. Many of these deaths are caused by dangerous synthetic opioid analogues like fentanyl and carfentanil, the latter of which is 100 percent stronger than morphine. 
This crisis is causing working age men to drop out of the work force which is very detrimental to our nation's prosperity overall, and of course to those who are debilitated by their addictions.
The legalization of marijuana is another controversy which is only going to lead to harming people. Those who participate in ingesting that drug are opening themselves up for many difficulties. It is a known fact that marijuana acts as a gateway drug to other even more dangerous drugs and causes many other problems.
The despicable George Soros whose mission is to destroy the entire West has been a strong proponent of legalizing marijuana, which is of course a way to cause people to become distracted and unproductive-another step toward a globalist clamp down to gain control of the lives of a weakened population and "fundamentally" change (ruin) America. The globalists want a weak servile population which they can control.
If some people are benefited medically from taking marijuana, then the substance should be carefully prescribed and regulated. Instead, at this rate we are heading for the development of hundreds of communities of free-for-all reckless dumbed-down useless pot-heads. How many more car wrecks will be caused by these stoners? How many families will suffer and be affected by the drug-induced behavior of these out-of-touch druggies?
The previous "president" whose true background has been hidden from the public, exponentially accelerated the conditions in which we find ourselves today-a divided nation, fragile and gasping for breath. The Obama Administration had the most lawless gang of anti-American crooks this nation has ever had to endure; and Obama is still lurking in the background. We can see that he and his holdovers are rigorously shadowing the new administration with purposeful intensity, working to try to destroy it. One has to wonder how many of the anti-Trump haters are demonically possessed or at the very least-demonically empowered. The evil is very fierce and relentless.
Obama's incessant racism, his perpetual lying, his hatred for Israel, his love for Islam, his anti-Christian rhetoric, his disdain for the Constitution, his obvious anti-American agenda-are all indicators of the closeness of the prophesied seven-year Tribulation. He is still a poster boy for globalism and about half this county drank his toxic Kool-Aid (and still do).
Obama's clueless followers, and all the maniacal leftist agitators who are working to implement tyranny-have no idea what a dangerous world lies ahead; a world where no one will be able to buy and sell unless they bow down to the coming global leader (Antichrist), and even then, when their usefulness is no longer needed, they will be destroyed.
"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name" (Revelation 13:16-17).
I have read some reports lately where large numbers of employers in all aspects of business are having difficulty finding qualified and reliable workers-because too many applicants are flunking the drug test. Bit by bit, in so many areas of life, productivity is being marginalized. I see this as a precursor of the dire economic and social conditions that will be prevalent during the Tribulation years-when hundreds of millions of people will be even much more dysfunctional than they are today.
When the Antichrist rises to power the ignorant masses will welcome him with open arms and call him a great hero. These unstable and susceptible people will eagerly accept a iron-fisted welfare state and surrender their personal freedoms. The security they think government welfare will provide through sub-standard living conditions will create a breed of indigents, totally dependent on the state-the globalists' dream come true of a planet of slaves whom they can control.
The intensely disrespectful immoral behavior of both Bill Clinton and Obama have trickled down into every aspect of life. No one is immune from the outpouring of indecency which they introduced into the office of the presidency. Virtuous God-loving people are truly the minority-another indication of the coming judgment when God pours out his wrath upon a godless world.
Are there any towns or cities left in America where we can feel safe and free, where the globalists have not designated land to use for their sinister plans? These interlopers intend to build high density urban housing interspersed within good neighborhoods (bringing the ghetto you).
I have seen the blueprints for eight of these high density urban buildings (ghettos) designated for the town in which I live; they fall within only an eight mile radius of one another in good middle class neighborhoods where the property is well-maintained and not cheap.
Only a massive grassroots outcry with God's help against this wicked attempt to denigrate good neighborhoods, endanger the safety of its residents and bring down the value of personal property-can possibly stop or delay this detestable plan. The infiltration of unsavory individuals packed into these "high density urban" buildings would bring about lawlessness on steroids.
One world globalists have infiltrated U.S. government agencies even on the local level. Are there any cities or states that have not been forced to provide "refugee" centers? These centers house potential terrorists and criminals-people who do not want to assimilate into our American culture. These barely vetted or unvetted "refugees"(many from third world nations) are thrust into our towns and cities subsidized by our tax dollars. Yet we seem to have no say in the matter.
An Internet search will disclose some of the refugee centers (primarily housed by Obama- imported Muslims). America is no longer the Norman Rockwell apple pie white picket fence American flag on the porch nation. Thankfully, we still have some pockets that reflect our nation's culture, but it is even becoming dangerous to hang an American flag from your front porch in some neighborhoods. You might just offend someone. Your house might just burn down.
Lawlessness politicians whom the American people entrusted to carry forward the principles that this nation was built on, "One nation under God, with liberty and justice for all"-have shown themselves to be evil liars; sold-out diabolical globalists who despise the Constitution. This nation is now in a tailspin of lawless indulgence. It is imperative more than ever to pray for our president, his family and all those who are fighting to stop the attempt to take away our American sovereignty.
President Trump has done a lot of good for our country in a short time despite all the hysteria aimed at him-constantly. The tyrannical forces are trying to drown out the successful positive changes implemented by him-so he does not get the credit he deserves, and so the brainwashed fools that say they hate him-will not see that he is improving the conditions of our country for everybody.
Even with our president working for the betterment of America, the moral depravity that cuts deeply into this nation and throughout the world cannot be legislated away. Too many unscrupulous people control Washington and will undermine anything that has to do with reviving, maintaining and improving our cherished American free market system. These desperately evil despotic frauds will continue to sabotage the constitutional precepts initiated by our Founding Fathers.
We also have too many people everywhere who laugh at and reject God's saving grace, defiantly choosing the wide gate and broad way that leads to destruction (Matthew 7:13).
Our best weapon against all of these ongoing problems is fervent intercessory prayer and daily Bible study. Prayer is our refuge and strength, the way we can communicate with our beloved Lord and the Word of God is like a healing balm that soothes our souls on a blustery day.
How comforting it is to know that this is not our true home, and that one day soon we will be free of the cares and dangers of this broken world. I can't image life without Jesus. He truly is our Rock, our Fortress, our King. Every night I pray that He will swiftly move things along prophetically and call us home. Even so come Lord Jesus.
