Summary: In a world gone mad with sin and depravity, what should the true church of Jesus Christ be doing? We should not fear what man may do, we should bend the truth of God's Word, and we should not bow before the "gods" of political correctness.
Where do we go from Here?

By Rev. James May
We live in a world where the words of the prophet Isaiah are ringing loud and long, and the warnings of what will come in these last days are coming to pass with alarming speed. Who can doubt that we are nearing the time of Jacob’s Trouble? A quick glance into the troubles in the Middle East will show that Israel is compassed about with enemies and with little help from other nations, if any, Israel is preparing to stand alone against the world.
In Isaiah chapter 5, we read these words:
Isaiah 5:20 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 5:21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
Isaiah 5:22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
Isaiah 5:23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
America, and the world, is falling into these traps more and more each day. European nations are farther along this path to destruction than America, and the plans of the Muslims to create a caliphate (kingdom under one Muslim ruler), in the whole of Europe are well underway and working like a charm.
With millions of Muslim refugees immigrating into the European nations, such as Germany, which now has over 25 million Muslims, the future elections of these nations will see the rise of Muslim leaders, and they will no longer be called “Christian nations”.
When the Muslim leaders take over, they will vote in Sharia Law. Then those who won’t abide under Sharia Law will be taxed heavily, and then, when they refuse to convert, many will be beheaded.
America still has a chance for repentance. Less than 2% of our population is Muslim right now, but that number is growing rapidly. Nothing but the prayers of the saints and the mercy of God can stop this same thing from happening right here.
We have avowed Socialists running for President; a Muslim sympathizer is now in the White House, and Muslims are being systematically placed in strategic political positions of power and authority all across the land. If the church is ever going to pray, now is the time. Another 5 or 10 years will be too late.
Most of our younger generation has been brainwashed by liberal educators and they are more than willing to vote in people whose ultimate goal is the destruction of American freedom and economy, forcing this country into submission to anyone who is strong enough militarily to threaten our existence.
In days gone by, when the Russians and the Chinese were threatening the world with Communist domination, the catch phrase was, “Better off Dead, than Red”! Americans stood together, unified against the communist threat because most of us could see how communism and socialism placed the people of those nations under such suppression. That’s why I went to Vietnam. That’s why Korea was fought. That’s why many brave men and women have died in foreign lands for many years. Freedom was, and still is, dear to us who have seen the world changing.
But we have a generation now who have never seen the real effect of socialism and communism and they are falling prey to the propaganda machines of the politicians and the mind controlling media, and they have been convinced that freedom isn’t worth fighting for, and that any kind of life is better than death.
So unless God undertakes and turns us back to him, there is little hope for my grandchildren, and especially my great-grandchildren, should the Lord tarry, to ever know what real freedom is. The day is coming when the whole world will fall under the controlling and deadly thumb of the Antichrist’s One World Government that won’t allow any personal freedom or opposition to his control.
I know that this is something that the true church won’t see because Jesus is coming to take his Bride away, but it is still very sad to this coming upon those who don’t make themselves ready. What kind of world will they inherit! It’s a world that I don’t want to be a part of!
But the great thing is that it’s also a world that won’t last for long. Just seven years is all it will take, but those will be 7 long years of the worst trouble and disasters that this world will ever know. At the end of that period, known as the Great Tribulation, there is coming a new world – a world of peace, safety and righteousness. That will be the new world under the rule of the Lord Jesus Christ and his Millennial Kingdom. That world, I not only want to be a part of, but we are promised that we will rule and reign with Christ for that thousand years of peace.
