Having reminded ourselves of our former, unregenerate state, we are now ready to consider the great things God has done for us in His grace, saving our souls and making us whole. This listing is by no means original. For example, Lewis Sperry Chafer has a similar listing in his book entitled Salvation. Also this listing is by no means complete or exhaustive. We have listed 215 things but there are more. You can add to this list through your own study of the Scriptures as you find other things that are true of you now that you are saved. This study can be used as a devotional aid. One or two of the following points could be considered each day as you meditate on the riches of God's grace. Consider these as "SPIRITUAL VITAMIN PILLS" and take one or two a day! As you go through the day remind yourself of who you are and what you have in Christ! As a saint, live saintly! As a child of God, so walk in a way that would honor your heavenly Father! "To God be the glory! Great things He hath done!" Don't forget WHO YOU ARE! Consider the following:

It Can NEVER Happen to Us! Right?

A post from 2012! It is clear to see that things here in America have gotten EXPONENTIALLY worse and the Day of the Lord is even closer! Do not deceived yourself! No matter of leadership can stop our EXPONENTIAL hemorrhaging (socially and fiscally) brought about by years of EXPONENTIAL lawlessness! Can you see it? Do you have the spiritual eyes to see? The Trump of Christ is at hand!

Today, many Americans see the EXPONENTIAL problems facing our nation (fiscally and socially) and yet they truly DO NOT believe that we - as a nation - can fall. They possess a delusional mindset that illogically believes that “It can’t happen to us! We are unsinkable!"

The horrific and sobering realities and thoughts of America falling is absolutely unimaginable for countless Americans to entertain. As the majority of Americans live in “La-La land” about the dire realities of our nation’s critical fiscal and social condition, they willingly deceive themselves into thinking that the calamities at hand are not fatal. To soothe their anxious minds, these have put ALL of their trust in a delusional false hope and imaginary optimistic outcome. They truly believe that our nation’s current death bed condition will begin to magically and miraculously cure its self if we just get the right leaders in office. With the result of the 2012 elections, it is an affirmative that that dog is not ever going to hunt.

Sadly, these lack the ETERNAL biblical perspective to visualize the horrific sobering realities of our hour.
Sadly, these lack the ETERNAL biblical perspective to visualize the horrific sobering realities of our hour. They have not the eyes to see the national state of lawlessness, decadence, immorality, violence, debt and subjective narcissism that absolutely has saturated all facets of our American society. They are in utter delusional darkness chasing the Devil’s cattle across the sky. They are as blind men looking for a black cat, in a black room, which is absolutely void of light; all the while there NEVER WAS A BLACK CAT to be found (John 3:19-21, 2 Thess. 2:10-12)! These are looking for and seeking – as it were - the fictitious fountain of youth, the lost City of Eldorado, Bigfoot, the transitionary links of evolutionary fossils and Jim Morrison and Elvis alive!, all the while deceiving themselves and others to their doom (2 Tim. 3:13, Rev. 21:8, 22:15).

What Then?

When America DOES fall, what will the masses of America then do? It will be too late to seek healthy godly solutions and remedies for our nation in light of the calamities of lawlessness that will then be upon our lawless nation. Godly solutions and answers which have been mocked and scoffed at will not be able to be found for they have rejected them and have thrown it all out for a lie (Prov. 1:22-33, 2 Thess. 2:10-12, 2 Peter 3:3). For when America does fall, lawlessness will sweep across our land. That which binds our nation will disintegrate and like a catastrophic tsunami, it will render us helpless as the mobs, hunger, violence, bitterness and lawlessness reign.

It will be too late to seek healthy godly solutions and remedies for our nation in light of the calamities of lawlessness that will then be upon our lawless nation.

Once America falls (socially and fiscally) what global restraint will then be applied to the raging, godless, anti-Semitic, merciless and secular nations of planet earth? Even now America is saturated with leftist progressives in key positions of authority, principalities and bureaucracies that despise ALL that are nation was founded on. They are an army of fifth column constitutional destroyers who are seeking a fascist tyrannical grip and are against all of the liberties and freedoms which have been instilled to us from our Creator and reaffirmed by our founders. Without these borders of morality and societal restraint, we are indeed fulfilling the American prophecy of John Adam’s and the other founder’s warnings. When the American Judeo/Christian dam is removed from out of this nation and from off the world’s stage what then will be the global state of our lawless world (Matt. 24:12, Rev. 6-16).
Even now, a very thin layer of America’s restraint holds back the world’s lawless ambitions and evil tyrannical fascist designs. For what it is worth, it is my personal option – which is a sound biblical one - that once the “Rapture of the Church transpires America will then implode, thus setting off a chain reaction that will be greatly felt throughout the entire world (2 Thess. 2:5-12). It is in America, which is found the greatest number of biblical believers in the world. It has been this remnant’s godly influence and saltiness in these last days that has restrained the evil in America and has continued to send forth the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the entire world (Isa. 1:9, Matt. 5:13, John 3:16-17, 1 Cor. 15:1-4)!

Once the Rapture of the Church transpires America will then implode, thus setting off a chain reaction that will be greatly felt throughout the entire world.
My friends, is NOT conservatism based and rooted in the Ten Commandments of Almighty God? Is NOT conservatism based and rooted in the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God? Conservatism without biblical REALITY and a Savior is doomed, wretched and bankrupt (Rom. 10:2-4)! It has been the Gospel of Jesus Christ that has made this nation great! Conservatism has just been a by-product thereof. When the Rapture finally takes place, many “conservatives” will be left behind and they will be ABSOLUTELY NO match for a godless, lawless, raging society provoked, aroused and motivated by a Leftist lawless leadership in Washington D.C. The Left will seek to control the millions of socially dependent American’s by inciting the rage and violence that is in them against all that oppose their secular totalitarian vision and will. This time will be much like that of Nazi Germany and the French Revolution.
When the Rapture finally takes place, many “conservatives” will be left behind and they will be ABSOLUTELY NO match for a godless, lawless, raging society provoked, aroused and motivated by a Leftist lawless leadership in Washington D.C.

Oh, my friends! How we need REALITY today and not just reality but BIBLICAL REALITY AND TRUTH to set us free (John 8:32, 36, Gal 1:4)! My dear friends ALL that you see around you today, the DOMINATING instability, uncertainties, godlessness, lawlessness, decadence, immorality, narcissism, dreadful uncertainties, and growing mob violence and rage are OVERWHELMING SIGNS that attest to the horrific and great structural fractures in our Republic.

My friends, we as a nation are at the point of no return. If Americans WILL NOT acknowledge the sobering realities – which are evident everywhere - of our nation’s critical condition, how will they ever receive the sobering realities of Almighty God’s diagnosis of our fallen and doomed human estate and their desperate need for Almighty God’s saving solution (John 3:16-17, Acts 17:30-31, Romans 3:23, Rev.20:11-15).

Jeremiah’s Day/Our Day

In Jeremiah’s day, Judah was far past the point of no return (socially and morally), even to the point in which Almighty God proclaimed “not to pray for them” for it was a done deal (Isa. 1:15, Jer. 7:16, 11:11, 14:10-12). The soon coming Babylonian captivity and desolation of the land was at hand and a sobering reality (Jer. 32:24, Lam). We NOW - IN OUR DAY - are EXPONENTIALLY FARTHER down the road of time and are at the very coming of the Day of the Lord! Our nation has become godless beyond ALL comparison and has outright rejected ALL of the somber warnings and witnesses of our godly founders, our Judeo/Christian culture, God-fearing citizens and the Word of Almighty God! I truly believe that Almighty God has stated to us who know the Lord, “Do NOT pray for this people for there is ABSOLUTELY no room at ALL for repentance only judgment (Jer. 7:16, 1 John 5:16); for they have become diamond hardened and locked into in their godless secular, lawless existence (Rom. 1:18-32)!”
Our nation has become godless beyond ALL comparison and has outright rejected ALL of the somber warnings and witnesses of our godly founders, our Judeo/Christian culture, God-fearing citizens and the Word of Almighty God!

Do we stop praying for America and her people? No not at all, Almighty God has not verbally given anyone that command, but in light of our day and godless lawless climate, I would have to state that American’s have become totally ripe for Divine Judgment!

My dear friends, may you not find yourself in the delusional mindset of our day which states, that it can NEVER happen to us! For indeed it can and it will, for truly the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
