The False Prophets of Optimism

Conservative leaders and their followers are absolutely fired up about a promising 2010 victory and are anxiously awaiting the elections this fall. Conservative leaders and their base are also touting that they can see the light at the end of the "Big Government" tunnel and are very optimistic and jazzed. Though we should be excited about what may transpire this fall we should not be putting all our optimistic eggs into this cankering basket. What we will be witnessing in a future 2010 victory are the last struggling convulsions of a nation on the precipice of total collapse.

"What we will be witnessing in a 2010 victory are the last struggling convulsions of a great nation on the precipice of total collapse"

The absolute reality is that the conservative, optimistic ideal cannot support the excessive weight of the current crises and realities at hand. This fact must be recognized and accepted by the conservative right in this country. Today's social crises are reaching epidemic proportions - both nationally and globally. The good intentions and well wishes of the humanly flawed anticipation that is "conservative optimism" has had its place in the past, but now in light of the global climate affected by ever-increasing human depravity, it is but a “spider’s web” of hope (Job 8:14). My I ask this sobering question, "What is able to harness the unbridled passions of fallen humanity (i.e., the opening of “Pandora’s Box" in the Garden of Eden), once they are unleashed, and what can subdue them and place them back into their pre-fallen state?" The horrific answer is... absolutely nothing. For 6000 years, the godless practice of the unbridled passions of fallen man have be on display and demonstrated for all to see (Romans 1:18-32), yet countless generations remain optimistic about our "human" future and absolutely oblivious to Almighty God's Day of Reckoning (Acts 17:30-31). My friend, how can anyone put a broken and trashed egg back together again?

Humanity's Pandora’s Box was opened at the fall of Man, in Eden’s Garden (Genesis 3), but since the 60’s - here in America and globally -  the lid has been completely removed. In this current outworking of exponential lawlessness, this godless spirit has corrupted and contaminated not just the United States but the whole earth (Matt 24:12; 1 Tim. 4:1-2; 2 Tim. 3:1-7).
.False Prophets of Optimism
Under the leadership of Rush Limbaugh, men like Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Bill O’Reilly etc..  have become today's False Prophets of Optimism and hope. Multitudes look to their leadership, direction and optimistic appraisal in light of today’s culture, society and D.C.’s ever tightening grip on our nation (Romans 8:4-5,1 Cor. 2:14,James 3:15). These men are great men, but they are just men (Jer. 17:5-9). These comprehend the things of temporal time and have absolutely no vision into the future and the coming Kingdom of God which is at hand (Romans 8:4-5,1 Cor. 2:14, James 3:15). If these truly comprehended the very hour in which they live in, they would NEVER hold back the sobering realities of time and ETERNITY from their audience(Romans 1:16, Gal 6:14). These men preach and hold a counterfeit and relative form of Judeo/Christianity and their message is contrary to the clear cut Biblical authority and reality of Almighty God’s Word and Christ’s soon coming Kingdom. These men are dear sincere men and mean absolutely well, but again they deceive themselves and others as they preach a relativistic and humanistic form of  Judeo/ Christian optimism to their listeners on our nations current crisis instead of the REALITY of the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ (Rom 1:16, 1 Cor 15:2-4). These are absolutely oblivious to sound biblical realities, the chief of these being the literal establishment of Christ’s literal thousand year Kingdom on earth in spirit and truth (reality).These men are ignorant of the absolute RIGHTEOUSNESS (perfection), which is demanded by Almighty God (Matt 7:21-23, Rom 10 :2-4)!
"If these truly comprehended the very hour in which they live in, they would NEVER hold back the sobering realities of time and ETERNITY from their audience"
These False Prophets of Optimism say: peace, peace when there is NO peace TO COME (Jer. 6:14, 8:11). They say, "surely America will endure forever" and have no comprehension of humanity's tragic demise which is at hand (2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev 19:11-21). Sadly these do not want to truly know the TRUE reality of our present state and condition, it is too raw to comprehend and conceive (John 3:19-21). Conservative optimism is the only outlet and window in which these choose to look out of. It presents a more comforting picture for them then what the truth of Almighty God states and reveals (Is 28:15).
"The reality is, that we - as Conservatives - are at the Alamo at present and a global tribulation is at hand; with the climatic global blood bath called Armageddon! Christ is coming very soon!"
The current state of our society and modern-day culture here in America is sickening, to say the least. It’s no secret that with the spearhead of the 60’s secular leftist/ socialist movement, America has reaped the whirlwind of societal consequences that have been devastating to our American families. These False Prophets are looking to fiscal conservatives in 2010 to save the day. Social conservatism is but a band aid to fix the ills of the social train wreck which is the America family unit, society and culture. Fiscal Conservatism is nothing more then a straw man. It is strong social conservative leadership that is desperately needed here in America. As the USS America Titanic is continually taking on massive amounts of the "decadent social" cesspool we have but a short time. One must be humble enough and bold enough to look at these sobering realities with their eyes wide open. It will be then that an individual will be in the place to bow their hearts and minds to Almighty God and receive His saving grace for the deliverance of their very soul before the Day of the Lord begins (2 Cor. 6:2).

In all fairness to Rush Limbaugh, in his latest issue of the Limbaugh Letter, Rush stated, "Folks, this isn't politics as usual. If you believe in the Constitution, you must recognize that on a scale of one to ten, with ten being the country is finished, we're close to a TEN."

For Rush that is a big start, he NEVER has mentioned this on his radio program. What Rush needs to do is to testify to his millions of listeners the sobering realities that,
"The Day of the Lord is at hand" and "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be Saved!" That there... is Biblical optimism and eternal treasure in Heaven forever!
The Fallout of Secular Liberalism

The non-absolute morality and godless religious ideology of the secular left has permeated into all aspects of our once dominant Judeo/ Christian heritage and culture. The Social climate of today’s America is so decadent, so immoral, so base and so lewd that it has passed the point of remediation to the point of no return. The majority of people look at the surface of our societal ills and naively believe that things aren’t as bad as they seem. The fact is, though, that our society is contaminated to the very core. The steak - as it were - has been left out of the refrigerator too long, and no “conservative ideology” revival or leadership can restore this rotting corpse (see Isaiah 1:5-6). Once a nation is given over to the basest of ideals (i.e., secular socialism) and moral practices, it is just a matter of time before it implodes on itself in rottenness (see Romans 1:18-32). As one who loves my country I take no delight in declaring this, but the present status of our society and culture compels making an objective assessment. May we as a people learn the lessons of history, and may she be our wise teacher. Every nation that has gone down this path has not survived.

A Steak and Its Environment

When a steak (i.e., humanity) is placed in a refrigerator, the cold environment slows down the corruption and spoiling process (see Isa. 64:6; Rom. 3:23). Even under refrigeration the meat will eventually spoil, but the corruption process is slowed down. Such is the Conservative (Right, moral) ideology.

When a steak is left out at room temperature, the corruption process accelerates due to a higher rate of bacterial growth that takes place in a warm environment. Such is the Moderate (Centrist, compromising) ideology.
When a steak is left out in the direct sunlight and high heat, the corruption process accelerates exponentially. Such is the Liberal (Leftist, secular) ideology.

The tremendous impact from the 60’s counterculture revolution is akin to a steak left out at room temperature. In the last 40 years or so since, the corruption process in our society has increased to an extent such that we can see the radical and fundamental changes that have produced countless social ills and catastrophes (refer to the Red Light District America blog from July 2009).
2006 - The Consummation of a Secular and Socialistic America

When the far left of the Democratic Party took power in the House and Senate in the elections of 2006, the Left began rapidly instituting their radical leftist agenda and nothing has been able to stop it since. Our previous president George Bush, a Moderately Conservative “lame duck” president, would not fight this aggressive agenda “tooth and nail” and supported too much of it. The stage was thus set for our first ever radical leftist, socialist President of these United States, Barak Hussein Obama. In just the first six months of the Obama administration, we have seen a deluge of his leftist agenda.
"2009 has been the year of the point of no return for American culture, society and policies in Washington D.C."

2009 has seen an exponential change in all facets of government, culture and society. Super-socialism, super-spending, fascist polices, nameless accountability, destructive agendas, countless corruption, mass deception, godless arrogance, and so on and so on.2009 has been the year in which the steak has been moved from a room temperature climate into the direct heat of the sun. The corruption process of our “steak” culture and society has now been made irreversible. The demonic flies - as it were - have infested this rotten piece of flesh and are leading and participating in America's rapid deterioration (1 Tim 4:1-3). 2009 has been the year of the point of no return for American culture, society and policies in Washington D.C.
Such rapid deteriorating conditions and a global, “reprobate mind” society are setting the stage for the perfect storm, which is the arrival of the ultimate politician and supreme secular fascist - The Man of Lawlessness. He will seek to change the times and the laws
(Dan. 7:24, 25) and establish a global fascist state (Dan. 11:36-39; Rev. 13:14-18). He will make war against God’s people, the realities of Almighty God and His eternal sovereignty (2 Thess. 2:8-9; Rev. 13:1-7, 17:12-14). This man will also go as far as to set himself up as god and to be worshiped by all (Matt. 24:15; 2 Thess. 2:4; Rev. 13:4, 8, 12). He and his global fascist state will shortly after meet their doom at the glorious Second Coming of Almighty God the Son, Jesus the Messiah/ Christ (Dan. 7:26, 11:45; Rev. 19:20, 19:11-21).
Our godless nation - and world - is presently on a collision course smack dab into a terrible time of judgment called the Day of the Lord, or The Great Tribulation
(Isa. 24; Joel 2:30-32; 1 Thess. 5:31; Matt. 24; Rev. 6:6-17).
.The Bible describes the Global Conditions of the Last Days.
Jesus stated: And because iniquity (lawlessness) shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold (Matt. 24:12).

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth (2 Tim. 3:1-7).

Let not your heart be troubled. All these things must be. The end result of the corrupted and totally spoiled steak (humanity) will be the Battle of Armageddon, in which all nations will go to war against the Eternal Sovereignty and Lordship of Almighty God. Christ at His second coming will decimate all these global armies with His Word (Zech. 14:3-4; 2 Thess. 2:8; Rev. 19:11-21). He will then judge and cast out all unrepentant and unbelieving humanity that survives from the entrance into the 1000-year earthly kingdom of Jesus Christ (Dan.9:27; Joel 3:2; Zech 14:16; Matt. 13:29-30, 40-43, 47-49, 25: 41-46). Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be established forever in Righteousness! (Isa. 2:4, 11:1-11; Dan. 7:14, 18; Zech. 14: 20-21; Mal 4, Romans 14:17)

Even now Almighty God is calling all humanity (the rotting steak) to repentance and to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, who is the Savior of all mankind. Only Christ can deliver one from the pollutions of the heart (Jer. 17:9) and of this doomed world (Gal. 1:4).

Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? Call on Him today, won’t you? He will deliver you from the bondage of sin and the wrath that is appointed for this sinful world.

In these Last Days may you look to Almighty God and His Word for the encouragement, hope and help you need. Place your trust in Him today! You will never be the same!

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Matt. 6:33).

The Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand!

We are not called to quit. We are not called to roll up into a ball and die. We are called to fight the good fight and know that the Word says we will not win.

This is not false optimism, it is the very essence of Hebrews 11. It is Faith in action. It is belief that the Holy Father is faithful, His Word will not come back void.

Thank Jehovah GOd for Rush, Sean and others that are trying with all their might to wake the multitudes. No one jumps into the arms of the Father. It takes catastrophe. What we are witnessing is the beginning of the revival.

FIrst it will come through common sense, which then will be extended to spiritual issues. Some will get it and some will not.

I choose to fight and fight very hard for my wife and children. I know that the Word says it will be horrible in the end days which I believe we have entered.

Thank you for your post, but don't expect me to lay down and die. NO SIR, I will join the millions of others that know what hell is coming and choose to confront it ON ALL LEVELS.

I will stand before my Judge and say I did EVERYTHING I could to hold the banner high. I will not retire to a cave and wait for the thunderclap and the Messiah's return.

You may have a long wait yet.

Whoa... at ease my friend. lol...

Michael, I totally agree with you.. 100% (I thought I had made that clear) If you have in the past have read any of our previous posts you would understand that I (we) are not sitting under a fig tree waiting like a starry eye school boy.. for the Lord to come… lol

We need to do all we can (Romans 13:1-3) - which I do - but we must understand though that we are at the Alamo and a global tribulation is at hand with a global climatic blood bath called Armageddon and Christ is coming very soon! That my friend is NOT what the majority of Conservatives see or believe. They are oblivious to that very sobering reality. That is why we are trying to make that know to them. They have to see outside the box!

Many Christians also have taken their eye off of the Gospel message to save America from liberals. For those who know Christ that is our chief and major priority (the gospel call)

Thank God for Rush and the rest but people are looking to them and their (temporal view of the here and now) Rush needs to be Saved! Along with the rest! That is the point we were trying to make. They give a earthly temporal message of earthly temporal optimism with ABSOLUTLY NO GOSPEL MESSAGE or ETERNAL HOPE. They are false Prophets of CONSERVATIVE fallen humanity optimism.

I hope you understand what I am trying to say. Many have jumped the gun and misunderstood this post. I hope that this clarifies it.

Preach the Gospel first and Fight the power second!

Michael, The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

David – A Servant of Christ First, A Conservative Second

You guys might like my free e-book Walkabout: The History of a Brief Century. It's based on an amateur's understanding of the Bible prophesies without any attempts at reading anything symbolic or any particular view into them. I'd love to hear your comments. Thanks!

Fisherman; very well said, indeed!

It's strange how some folks think we're saying we should, "lie down and die"! On the contrary!

We should work even harder to bring more souls to Christ.

Biblical truth is not taught in many churches today. They wish to hold hands, sing Cum-Ba-Ya, and then go watch the football game and drink beer in the church meeting hall.

Both Dems and Republicans have created a false truth. I personally wouldn't label it "optimism" - arrogance would be a better word.

Look at how the Republican braggarts began to exalt the Party soon after the NJ, NY, VA elections.

True CONSERVATIVES wouldn't necessarily belong to either Party!

Keep up the good work, Fisherman. You're a man after my own heart! And GOD Bless you and yours!

Tiger, My friend you get it!!! Not too many do! That's what we are all about!
