Some of you are old enough to remember the opening theme of The Bionic Man……
Oscar Goldman: Steve Austin, astronaut: a man barely alive
Gentlemen we can rebuild him
We have the technology
We have the capability to make the worlds first bionic man
Steve Austin will be that man
Better than he was before
Better, Stronger, Faster
Some believe that America is heading in the same path of The Bionic Man, but let’s not fool ourselves.
Psalms 75:6-7 (NKJV)
“For exaltation comes neither from the east. Nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, and exalts another.”
Daniel 2:20-22 (NKJV)
“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.”
Acts 17:26-28 (NKJV)
“And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being…”
While the first two Scriptures speaks of individuals, the Scripture in Acts deals with the pre-appointed times and boundaries of their dwellings. Note the word “preappointed.”
A nation CANNOT go beyond what God established as pre-appointed times and boundaries.
The course of nations is set, their boundaries set and established, and their end is set.
Daniel chapter 2 is a pivotal chapter.
You have four sets of kingdoms.
- Babylon. 2. Medes and Persians. 3. Greece. 4. Rome.
The children of Israel were exiled to Babylon under Nebuchadnezzar and returned to Israel under the Medes and Persians by Darius’ permission that was divinely received.
A lot of people are fighting to keep a dead patient alive on a ventilator. In fact, some will say that America is far from dead. That its greatest and best is yet to come. When your debt exceeds your income, with either a long term payment plan, or no plan at all, the nation is in trouble.
The four nations that Daniel spoke of one of the ingredients of their downfall was their economic condition as well as their weakened military power. In particular, the Roman government ended because of a bad economy.
The Roman government ended in 495BC or thereabouts. But the essence of Roman government exists in many nations, including the US.
There’s three consistent things that is observed in the Roman government.
A king or emperor. A senate. And a judicial system.
These three elements, in some form or another, continue to this day.
The last part of the dream of Nebuchadnezzar is the ten toes which was mixed with iron and clay. This was interpreted to mean that iron will mix with clay, but they won’t adhere to one another. In other words, the strength appears strong but is weak. Iron is strong. Clay is weak.
What or who are the ten toes?
Revelation 17:12-14 (NKJV)
“The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”
We don’t know who these nations are but out of all the nations of the earth, you have the G-8 nations. The nations with the greatest economies are nations whose economies are full of debt. Many think it’s the EU, or the USMCA or other nations that join together in an alliance.
Whatever the case may be, the US is the only nation that has 11 nuclear aircraft carriers. No other nation matches this so it’s clear that the US may or may not be one of the 10 nations. We can’t be dogmatic with this. To do so and other issues occur, is not wisdom.
Whoever these 10 nations will be, they will give the beast power for 1 hour and then the Lamb will overcome them and destroy them, which lines up with what Daniel chapter 2 says.
The “Bionic Man” will not be rebuilt better than before. In order for the “Bionic Man” to be rebuilt, you can’t take away its Constitutional freedoms. The reduction of any Constitutional freedoms is a dead giveaway that a rebuilt is just window dressing to build a lawless society.
They will pee on Americans and command that YOU call it rain.
But what is it that will be attacked?
Freedom of religion. Already we’re seeing that censorship of free speech is underway.
When they go after true houses of worship, this is where you will see the real intent of satan. That it wasn’t intended to be a political solutions but a spiritual battle to forever alter the course of this nation for the worst. Even satan can’t stop the clock. And satan doesn’t have absolute power to stop God and His clock.
When man makes up his mind to go in a particular direction, even satan is forced to go along for the ride. Ultimately, man will arrive at a point where God in people will no longer be tolerated.
It isn’t now but absolute enforcement is the goal.
Once you see absolute enforcement (the beast), this is where The Great Tribulation is in full swing. Absolute enforcement is where you can’t buy or sell without the mark of the beast (see Revelation 13), worshipping the beast ands its image. If you don’t, absolute enforcement demands you comply and your death MUST happen.
Now is it possible that this can turn around?
“With men it’s impossible, but not with God. For with God all things are possible.”
But we have to consider the fact that the clock for the end times is running. This clock will not stop.
Acts 17:31 (NKJV) “…because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
Make no mistake about it that along the way, there will be glimmers of hope or pauses but the clock is ticking.
Yes, this clock on America, as for Babylon, Medes and Persians, Greece, and Rome will end.
And ultimately, the King of kings and Lord of lords will establish His kingdom forever.
