Reality About 9/11, 9/11/14

Today we all remember a trauma in our recent history as a nation. Truly it was an awful day and we should remember it but we need to look at it much more honestly than we currently do as nation. 9/11 was a wake-up call from a loving, holy God with whom we have a covenant as a nation. It was a love tap intended to bring us to repentance and turn us back to him. It was a heavier love tap than the previous ones of the first minor trade center bombing and Oklahoma City. But we did not repent, we did the very opposite: we beat our chest in arrogant pride and marched out to fight against the very ones God had empowered to strike us without ever dealing with spiritual roots of the problem that had left us vulnerable in the first place.  God's word speaks clearly on the matter of his allowing his people to be defeated by their enemies when they are have rebelled against him:

Deuteronomy 28:25
“The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you shall go out one way against them and flee seven ways before them; and you shall become troublesome to all the kingdoms of the earth.

Now, having continued down that rebellious road for another 13 years, we are more vulnerable than ever. Our efforts in Iraq that started then have availed absolutely nothing, indeed it is worse now than ever. ISIS is a much greater threat than Al-Qaida and growing fast.  By no means are all Muslims in agreement with Jihadist Islam.  But we have no idea what percentage of the millions of Muslim immigrants no in America are loyal to the teachings of the Quran that all who do not convert to Islam need to be killed. Until we repent we cannot prevail in these situations because God is not with us in battle because of our rebellion against him:

Psalm 44:9
But You have cast us off and put us to shame, And You do not go out with our armies.

What this means is that we are sitting ducks for more terrorist attacks that will be very greatly worse than 9/11. Until we repent as a nation God cannot stop allowing these ever worsening judgments that are designed to lead us to repent. He is doing this out of love to help us turn form our rebellion and moral insanity that, if left unchecked, would result in our total destruction as it did with Greece and Rome. God told me in early 2002 that the next big terrorist attack will be something like bombs going off in 100 shopping malls all around the nation on the same day. This has been confirmed recently by the excellent watchman ministry of Dr. Jim Garrow, almost word for word. Indeed it will be a great blessing if we complete today without something like that since this day is sacred to Jihadists.

Reality and repentance are the only things that will protect us from these things continuing and getting worse and worse. God will chastise us as sternly as necessary to get us to repent and turn from a path of total self-annihilation. Repent, America, righteousness is the only thing that will give you any teeth in the fight against terrorism:

Proverbs 28:1New King James Version (NKJV)
28 The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.

However, if we repent as a nation, we will once again have the courage that comes with righteousness and we can fight with God's renewed supernatural help. Then God will return to us and protect us and give us victory over our enemies:

Deuteronomy 30:1-7New King James Version (NKJV)
The Blessing of Returning to God
30 “Now it shall come to pass, when all these things come upon you, the blessing and the curse which I have set before you, and you call them to mind among all the nations where the Lord your God drives you, 2 and you return to the Lord your God and obey His voice, according to all that I command you today, you and your children, with all your heart and with all your soul, 3 that the Lord your God will bring you back from captivity, and have compassion on you, and gather you again from all the nations where the Lord your God has scattered you. 4 If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts under heaven, from there the Lord your God will gather you, and from there He will bring you. 5 Then the Lord your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers. 6 And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.

7 “Also the Lord your God will put all these curses ON YOUR ENEMIES and on those who hate you, who persecuted you.

So let's repent and Cry Out To God For America. God bless you all and may we all be found adequately repentant from now on out!
