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!

These are not my words, they are God's. Jesus' in fact as the LORD of the Old Testament. This scripture was timely and true in Isaiah’s day when he wrote down the words from God. It is certainly true today, where people live sinful lives proudly and boastfully (Proverbs 14:12). We live in an age of moral decline and maintain an unrepentant attitude towards God. What was once viewed as evil and unacceptable is now the norm, where evil is touted as being good, and liberating— and Christian morals as being hateful and evil. Many people go along with the Queer and pedophile agenda or shrug it off by saying things like, “it's their choice” or “so long as it doesn’t hurt anyone or bother me…" Doesn't it matter if it offends God? If so, are you willing to pay the price for this crime against God's Laws? Like it or not, you will pay the price and the cost you'll have to pay is tremendous.
The Apostle Paul told Timothy “That in the last days there will come times of difficulty” (2 Tim 3:1). He goes on to say that “people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good” (2 Tim 3:2-3).
Isn’t that what the world looks like today? The Apostle Peter wrote “that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires” (2 Pet 3:3), and scoffers have come like never before in history. I know the notion of boiling a frog in water, slowly overtime where eventually he is cooked to death, but that is not the case. Just in my lifetime the world has gone from a bad place to an evil place, where Satanic views are now the norm. Fifty years ago, try and convince the American culture the pedophiles were normal, or that it would be ok to take a 15-year-old boy or girl and physically mutilate them through surgery to the opposite sex. Just 20 years ago, what would the average opinion be that boys could walk into girl's locker rooms if they "identified" as a girl. More and more people are becoming self-proclaimed atheists and proud of it. Yes, what was once deemed to be good is now seen as bad by the liberal world, and what’s bad to believers is now embraced as good.
We have a president, and the entire Democratic Party that claims that the right to have abortions should be considered as health care for woman. Killing babies is not a health care right. This is evil and you and I are going to pay a price for it. This nation, under its present leadership is under a curse. God told Ezekiel about our nation, “Son of man, have you seen what the elders of Israel (America) are doing? They say, ‘The Lord does not see us; the Lord has forsaken the land.’” Then the Lord led Ezekiel into the inner court of the house of the Lord, and there at the entrance to the temple, between the portico and the altar, were about twenty-five men. With their backs toward the temple of the Lord and their faces toward the east, they were bowing down to the sun in the east. (An Easter Sunrise Service!). “Have you seen this, son of man? Is it a trivial matter.... the detestable things they are doing here? Must they also fill the land with violence and continually arouse my anger? Look at them putting the thumb to their nose at me! Therefore, I will deal with them in anger; I will not look on them with pity or spare them. Although they shout in my ears, I will not listen to them.” Just a note here, The Eternal Lord God speaking here is Jesus in his pre-human form!
God tells us to “Seek good, and not evil, that you may live; and so the LORD, the God of hosts, will be with you, as you have said” (Amos 5:14). The world tells us to seek evil and not good. Remember the Black Lives Matter riots? How for some insane reasoning the mainstream media presented the burning down of our cities, and black-owned stores? It is never good to break the law (Rom 13:1-5), be it man's civil law, or God's Law. The only exception to breaking man’s law would be where we must obey God over man (Acts 5:29) and where they conflict with one another. All of the so-called influencers today are rejecting what is good and embracing what is evil. And what Christians embrace as good, the world sees as evil. Even the Word of God is now sometimes seen as hate-speech or evil, even though we know for certain that all of the Word of God is good and there is no evil in God or in His Word. It’s backwards to the world but right with us, but some preachers have been imprisoned by reading the Word of God because the world sees it as offensive and hateful. What they call evil is in fact, good!
America's Coming Tribulation:
Then Ezekiel heard the LORD call out in a loud voice, “Bring near those who are appointed to execute judgment on the city, each with a weapon in his hand.” And he saw six men coming ...each with a deadly weapon in his hand. With them was a man clothed in linen (a prophet) who had a writing kit at his side. They came in and stood beside each other.
Now the glory of the God of Israel (America) went up from above His throne, and moved to the threshold of the Temple. Then the Lord called to the man clothed in linen who had the writing kit at his side and said to him, “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.”
As Ezekiel listened, God who became Jesus said to the others, “Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion. Slaughter the old men, the young men and women, the mothers and children, but do not touch anyone who has the mark. Begin at my sanctuary.” So, they began with the old men .... And they went out and began killing throughout the city. Ezekiel cried out to God, "are you going to destroy the entire land?"
God answered, “The sin of the people of Israel (The USA, Canada, Great Britain and Western Europe) and Judah (the Jews, notice that God does not call Jews Israel!) is exceedingly great; the land is full of bloodshed and the city is full of injustice. They say, ‘The Lord has forsaken the land; the Lord does not see.’ So I will not look on them with pity or spare them, but I will bring down on their own heads what they have done.”
Then the man in linen with the writing kit at his side brought back word, saying, “I have done as you commanded.”
Friends, these are not my words above. They are the words of Jesus Christ, who is The LORD GOD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The God who was born into the human race in a manager and called Jesus (Joshua) and became the Christ or Messiah. Remember up until Jesus walked on this earth, no man has ever heard the voice of God the Father or seen his form. If you don't believe me, read John 5:37. Jesus said "And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form". Was Jesus lying?
Christian churches for the most part have lied about the personage of Jesus. Just like the media lying about the news, the churches have been lying about the true identity of Christ. If they let "the cat out of the bag," so to speak and taught us that it was Jesus who created the entire universe, then the people might start asking ministers questions about their theology and how it doesn't fit into God's word. It was Jesus God who killed the Sabbath breaker! It was Jesus God who wrote the Ten Commandments with His own finger. How then can anyone believe that He came to do away with His own Law? You see the lawlessness that we are seeing today actually began in Christian churches that teach that Christ abolished the Ten Commandments. He did nothing of the sort. Christ said, as the God of the Old Testament, "For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed." Indeed, Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
HOPE FOR AMERICA?
I realize I sound pessimistic and condemning. I'm sorry, but God's Word burns within me just as they did Ezekiel. You see, Ezekiel is a prophet for our day and for our nation. Ezekiel is America's prophet.
Ezekiel’s Task as Watchman: Ezekiel wrote: Lord came to me: “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel (America); so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.
“Again, when a righteous person turns from their righteousness and does evil, and I put a stumbling block before them, they will die. Since you did not warn them, they will die for their sin. The righteous things that person did will not be remembered, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. But if you do warn the righteous person not to sin and they do not sin, they will surely live because they took warning, and you will have saved yourself.”
"The hand of the Lord was on me there, and he said to me, “Get up and go out to the plain, and there I will speak to you.” 23 So I got up and went out to the plain. And the glory of the Lord was standing there, like the glory I had seen by the Kebar River, and I fell facedown.
Then the Spirit came into me and raised me to my feet. He spoke to me and said: "I will make your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth so that you will be silent and unable to rebuke them, for they are a rebellious people. But when I speak to you, I will open your mouth and you shall say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says.’ Whoever will listen let them listen, and whoever will refuse let them refuse; for they are a rebellious people.". And so we really are!
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
