America in the Bible


America is not mentioned in the Bible. It would be reasonable to assume then America has no role in the ‘last days’ playing out. Thus, if America were to prosper and continue affecting the governments, politics and wars it would never play out the way God purposes it to be. American politics has well played into the purpose of God. Americans must take joy in knowing the return of our Lord Jesus Christ is imminent.  Pray for strength, courage and each other to endure whatever plays out till our Lord Jesus Christ returns.

Or could it be buying, looking for a port in the latest financial storm? As a matter of policy, the Treasury has never disclosed the holdings of Saudi Arabia, long a key ally in the volatile Middle East, and instead groups it with 14 other mostly OPEC nations including Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Nigeria. For more than a hundred other countries, from China to the Vatican, the Treasury provides a detailed breakdown of how much U.S. debt each holds.
“It’s mind-boggling they haven’t undone it,” said Edwin Truman, the former Treasury assistant secretary for international affairs during the late 1990s, and now a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington. Because relations were rocky and the U.S. needed their oil, the Treasury “didn’t want to offend OPEC. It’s hard to justify this special treatment for OPEC at this point.” Saudi Arabia, 14 other mostly OPEC nations including Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Nigeria, more than a hundred other countries, from China to the Vatican, Khalid Alsweilem, SAMA’s former head of investment, Alsweilem, who spent 20 years at SAMA and now advocates for fiscal reforms as a fellow at Harvard University’s John F.

8:23″And in the latter time of their kingdom, When the transgressors have reached their fullness, A king shall arise, Having fierce features, Who understands sinister schemes. 24His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; He shall destroy fearfully, And shall prosper and thrive; He shall destroy the mighty, and [also] the holy people. [The Beast of Revelation 13:1, ISIS!] [13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.] ,[until the words of God shall be fulfilled.]
25″Through his cunning He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; And he shall exalt [himself] in his heart. He shall destroy many in [their] prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. [The Lord God Almighty will intervene. Revelation 16; Zechariah 12-14;] https://revelationlastday.com/revelation-of-jesus-christ/revelation-22/isis-daniel-prophecy-revelation/

**1/31/16 http://www.wnd.com/2016/01/insider-warns-elites-heading-toward-one-world-solutions/ The Global Sherpa is, Theodore Roosevelt Malloch. The annual World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, has just wrapped up after a focus on a “Fourth Industrial Revolution” and other issues the global elites consider important to the entire world community.
Some years ago, I was presiding over a conference in Washington, D.C., with CNN and Margaret Thatcher was the keynote speaker,” Malloch recalled. “And when I introduced her, she said, ‘Whoever invented this and brought this congress to fruition is truly a global sherpa.’ So it’s become a moniker of mine. I’ve helped companies, I’ve helped organizations, I’ve helped political leaders find their way in this rather difficult and increasingly complex landscape.”

His experience, he said, allows him to recognize the drive, then, toward globalism.

There’s “not much interest in old-fashioned values or virtues, not much attention to national sovereignty any longer,” he said.

Christians will be raptured. The anti-Christ will be revealed. Israel will be over run. Israeli remnant will be placed in safety. The wrath of God will be poured upon all mankind. Then ‘IT IS DONE’! The Kingdom of our Lord will be revealed. The marriage supper of the Lamb. Thousand year reign of our Lord!

Now if you are wondering, how can I keep my name in the Book of Life you will understand the ‘only’ way is to believe the Truth, Faith in the Christ, the Son of God. He came to be with His people and to die for our sins and to rise from the grave to live eternally in heaven and to lead the way for us to rise from our grave to live with him forever in heaven.

‘Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ, according as he has chosen us in Him (note: the Him is – ‘Christ’) before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love; (note: the Him is – ‘Christ’) Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to thegood pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the Beloved (Jesus Christ).’ (Ephesians 1:3-11)

The mystery of Christ, to be specific is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, and fellow members of the body (of Christ), and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus, through the Gospel, and the administration of ‘the mystery’ is through the church. God’s plan is being worked out through the Church, in conformity to that timeless purpose which he centered in Jesus, our Lord.When I think of the greatness of this great plan I fall on my knees before God the Father. That Christ may actually live in your hearts by faith,’ awesome, amazing. Before the foundation of the world, God the Father, according to the good pleasure of His will, decided (foreknew) to predestinate all who believe in the Beloved (Christ), to give them eternal life. (Parts from J B Phillips Ephesians 3:4-11)

It is ‘… the mystery of Christ…’ ‘which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;’ (Ephesians 3: 4) …. ‘which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ;’ (3:9)……. ‘according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:’ (3:11). ‘…..and ..if the rulers and kings of this age had known it they would not have crucified him’ (1 Corinthians 2:7-8).

‘Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to His saints; To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:’ (Colossians 1:26 – 27)

‘Now to Him who has power to strengthen you according to my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the sacred secret kept silent for long ages, but now revealed and made known through the prophetic Scriptures, according to the command of the eternal God, to advance the obedience of faith among all: To God, only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen.’ (Romans 16:25)

‘For God so loved the world He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God.’ (John 3:16-18)

Already condemned because before the foundation of the world God planned, the only way to salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ.

‘The one who believes in the Son has eternal life, but the one who refuses to believe in the Son will not see life; instead, the wrath of God remains on him.’ (John 3:36)

‘The victor will be given a white garment, and I will never erase his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before My Father and before His angels.’ (Revelation 3:5)

‘O Death where is your victory? O Death where is your sting?’ 1 Cor 15:55

WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED

‘If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved’ (Rom 10:9);

(Jesus Christ is the) One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead. Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins. Acts 10:35-43

‘But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the children of God, even to those who believe in his name;’ John 1:12

Jesus said ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have eternal life’ John 3:16

‘He that believes in the son has eternal life.’ John 3:36a

‘I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the person whose ears are open to My words-who listens to My message-and believes and trusts in and clings to and relies on Him Who sent Me has (possess now) eternal life. And he does not come into judgment-does not incur sentence of judgment, will not come under condemnation-but he has already passed over out of death into life.’ John 5:24 Amplified

‘Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears my word, and believes Him who sent me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.’ John 5:24 American Standard

‘This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.’ John 6:28

‘For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.’ John 6:40

‘No man can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him: and I will raise him up on the last day.’ John 6:44

‘Verily, verily, I say to you, He who believes has eternal life.’ John 6:47

‘My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give eternal life to them; and they will never perish, and none will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; and no man is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand.’ John 10:27-30

Jesus said unto her, ‘I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? John 11:25,26

‘Father, you have given your son authority over all men to give eternal life to all that you have given to him. And this is eternal life, to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.’ John 17:1-3

‘Because God’s love for you, supremely expressed at Calvary, can now be manifested ‘much more’ and so accomplish His every desire for you.’ God commendeth His Love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Because of His delight in the Son, God can never reject the prayer of the Son asking Him to keep ‘them which thou hast given me.’ ‘I pray for them… for they are thine’. ‘Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me.’ (John 17:9,11)

‘the gospel of Christ, it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes’ Romans 1:16

‘Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.’ Romans 4:7-8

‘God demonstrates His Love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.’ Romans 5:8

‘but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.’ Romans 6:23

‘There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.’ ‘Who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.’ Romans 8:1,34

‘No condemnation now hangs over the head of those who are in Jesus Christ. Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not reckon sin.’ (Romans 8:1,34) (JB Phillips New Testament in Modern English) (Emphasis Mine)

‘If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved’ Rom 10:9

‘For with the heart a man believes resulting in righteousness; and with the mouth he confesses resulting in salvation.’ Romans 10:10

‘For the scripture says, whosoever believes in him will not be disappointed for there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek, for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him. For whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.’ Romans 10:11-12

‘He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit, Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ, our Saviour, That, being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life’ Titus 3:5

‘For ye have need of patience that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise,’ Hebrews 10:36(After Ye Have Done The Will of God’ (This means Believed in Jesus, accepted him as your Saviour.))

‘The Lord which He sent to the sons of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ (He is Lord of all), you yourselves know the thing which took place throughout all Judea, starting from Gallilee, after the baptism which John proclaimed. You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. We are witnesses of all the things He did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem. They also put Him to death by hanging Him on a cross. God raised Him up on the third day and granted that He become visible, not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead.  And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead. Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins. Acts 10:35-43 N.A.S. This is ‘The Gospel,’ ‘The Good News’

‘and Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe. And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; and put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith. Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.’ Acts 17 (Emphasis Mine)

Paul says in Galatians 2: 14 thru 6:18 ‘But when I saw that they were not straight forward about  the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If you, being a Jew, live like the Gentiles, and not like the Jews, why do you compel the Gentiles to live as do the Jews? Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. This only would I hear of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. The just shall live by faith. ‘Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen’ (Emphasis Mine)

‘Now brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of the first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more that five hundred (500) of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also’ 1 Cor 15: 1-8 (Emphasis Mine)

‘How complete, how all-inclusive! Grace saves, justifies, builds up, makes accepted, redeems, forgives, bestows an inheritance, gives standing before God, provides a throne of grace to which we may come boldly for mercy and help; it teaches us how to live and gives us a blessed hope! As old Bunyan said: “The believer is now, by faith in the Lord Jesus, shrouded under so perfect and blessed a righteousness, that this thundering law of Mount Sinai cannot find the least fault or diminution therein.”’ (Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth Scofield) (This is called the righteousness of God without the law.”). (Mine)

‘Should this meet the eye of an unbeliever, he is affectionately exhorted to accept the true sentence of that holy and just law which he has violated: for there is no difference: for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God’ (Rom. 3:22-23). In Christ such will find a perfect and eternal salvation, as it is written: ‘If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved’ (Rom 10:9); for Christ is ‘the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believes” (Rom. 10:4). (Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth Scofield)

For we are vessels of mercy – That he might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory. For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son…..(Romans 9:23, 8:29)

Because Gods infinite power is no longer hindered by your sins, but can wholly keep you safe, for the Blood of Christ still removes your guilt. He is the propitiation for our sins (1 John 2:2)

‘Because the death of the Son, having a value equivalent to the punishment demanded for all your sins, has paid also for sins you now commit. ‘There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus. ‘Who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.’ (Romans 8:1, 34) (J B Phillips New Testament in Modern English)

‘Because by the resurrection of Christ, God has broken your connection with Adam and joined you to Christ for acceptance and life.’ ‘You being dead in your sins… hath he quickened (enlifed) together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses.’ ‘Yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead.’ (Colossians 2:13; Romans 6:13) The Green Letters – Miles Standford

He did not just arrive as a baby 2000 years ago, He is the Word of God, He and the Father are one, From Heaven He came here, to show to us the Love and Kindness of the Father toward us, and to Save Us. He is the Alpha and the Omega, The Beginning and the End. The Lord God Almighty. (Mine)

Psalms 27:4, 13, 14  ‘One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple.’ ‘I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord.’

This is ‘The Gospel,’ ‘The Good News’

Acts 10:38-43  N.A.S. ‘You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. We are witnesses of all the things He did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem. They also put Him to death by hanging Him on a cross. God raised Him up on the third day and granted that He become visible, not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead.  And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead. Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins.’

1 Cor 15: 1-8  ‘By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of the first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more that five hundred (500) of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.

‘I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord.’ Psalms 27:4,13,14
