END TIMES SIGN: Civil Uprisings (Luke 21:9)

Dr. John McTernan’s Insights

Verse of the Day

Luke 21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions (civil uprisings), be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

Commentary

Luke writes that prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ wars civil uprisings will erupt on a massive scale across the world. What concerns me now is that America seems to be careening towards social chaos. The tension between vast amounts of the people and the federal government is accelerating. The potential confrontation is frightening.

I watched the American people sit back and let the government rack up over $16 trillion in debt without much opposition. The government failed to protect the borders and even sodomized the military with little more than a whimper from the public. The federal government steam rolled rolled the homosexual agenda with no response from the public or the church. It seems that the Americans were rolling over no matter what the federal government did. But, when it comes to guns, the public is stirred and talking about rebellion.

This is really strange to me, as it shows the public is willing to resist and stand, but only when it comes to guns and the Second Amendment! I guess that guns are engrained into the Americans.

What most people do not realize is that the immediate cause of the American revolution was guns. The main cause was taxation, but on April 19, 1775, when the British marched on Lexington and Concord, they were attempting to disarm the Massachusetts militia. So the causes of the American revolution were taxes and guns. Now, 238 years later, the same issues are raging across America. This year the issues with the federal government are taxes and guns. The combination of the two could ignite civil uprisings across America.

Obama is doing everything to destroy the economy. The runaway federal spending and debt, plus raising the taxes, are literally destroying the economy. This, without a doubt, can create civil uprisings. If the economy begins to fail, 2013 is going to be a dangerous time for America. Obama is a Hard Left ideologue along with most of the Democratic Party, and I do not see them backing down over the guns. If Obama pushes gun control, it will trigger mass unrest. If the guns and economy hit together, it could be like 1775-1776 all over again. The potential for tremendous social unrest in America is now very high. Once something like this starts, it is nearly impossible to stop as it has to run its course. I now sense great danger all around, and it seems very soon. It is as if a pall is hanging over the nation.

I can easily see America breaking up. Decadent New England and the West Coast have nothing in common with Texas and many other states. It is a possibilty that a bloc of states may move to seceed from the union. This is how far the divide is. This possibility is very high if Obama moves to pressure Israel to divide the land and Jerusalem. The unity of Americans was God and the Bible. This was our common heritage and unity. This is now broken and being replaced by atheism, homosexuality and drugs. The nation is now fractured, and all it will take to divide it is some dramatic event like an economic collapse.

When I look down the road of 2013, the year looks like war, civil unrest with great bloodshed. The very sad thing about this is that the church remains blinded and on the sidelines while the nation is dying. The combination of abortion, the homosexual agenda and touching Israel has brought all the curses of the Bible on America. 2013 might very well be known as the year of guns and taxes.

It is painful for me to report on what 2013 looks like. The potential for bloodshed is very high and if I dwell too much on it the year is frightening. For the first time since I have been in the ministry, I am fearful of what is coming. Before, I had a heaviness for the nation, but now a it is a sense of fear. When I sense the fear, I confess it to the LORD and ask for His peace. I never felt fear before, but now it is real. It seems that the endgame is now in play.

I suggest that everyone grow close to the Lord Jesus and do not let fear overcome you. Stay in pray and focused on the coming of the Lord Jesus for His bride. Looking for the Blessed Hope quells all fear.

May the LORD God of Israel bless and protect you and your family.

 John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
