AMERICA: The Handwriting is on the wall

42 Responses

  1. Couldn’t sleep last night. Want to guess what scripture was on my mind? All I could think of is that the writing truly is on the wall.

    Great as always John.

  2. Irene C says:

    MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN has also been going through my mind. Obama’s “kingdom” is numbered and has been found wanting.

    Once again, Jeremiah 11:14 also runs through my mind. “Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.” For the U.S., time is running out, if it hasn’t already run out.

    Also, time is running out for us. Now is the time we need to be preaching God’s Word and warning of the judgements to come. Tomorrow might be too late.

    When the Holy Spirit opened my eyes to understanding, one verse really sent chills down my back – Ezekiel 33:6. “But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”

    Most of us will never be great preachers of God’s Word here on Earth, but all of us can warn at least one person. God wants us to work right where we’re at.

    2 Corinthians 6:2 – (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

    God Bless and Maranatha

    @Irene: I love the way your mind works–what an inspiring comment. God bless you, my sister in Christ!

    1 Thessalonians 4:9 (KJV)

    9. But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

    How sad to see America given over to the end time bible sin of homosexuality we are so far down the rabbit hole there is no getting out except if God Himself intervenes, Isaiah chapter 10 states ..O Assyrian rod of my judgement, the staff in whose hand is my indignation. I will send him against the hypocritical nation…
    we once stood behind Israel and would not kill babies, I ashamed even to be an American citizen anymore we are becoming a reproach to the other nations because we once trusted God and now we have said in our hearts we do not want you around. Judgement is coming soon as John has been stating. I do not understand how people travel abroad anymore the other nations look at us a shake there heads.

  5. Rich says:

    John, Is America’s end given in Ez. 39:6?

    “And I will send a fire on Magog and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles (Americans ?); and they shall know that I am the LORD.”

    Could this verse be describing a nuclear exchange between the US and Russia?

    • JohnMcTernan says:

      This is God supernaturally destroying Russia and other nations.
      It is not nuclear weapons.

  6. KSguy says:

    Mr. McT, how do you feel we should treat the death of Rev. Fred Phelps? I see the gay supporters are rejoicing and figuratively dancing on his grave. While Rev. Phelps had a warning of judgment on homosexuals just as you do, he didn’t seem to present it in the proper biblical manner to the people.

  7. Joni says:

    I was just reading about this in Pastor Don’s book, America’s Ark.
    The way the animals are turning on us was eye opening, the plagues coming our way, uggg, it should be required reading, along with John’s books.
    Scary and exciting.
    God Bless us all,

  8. Gary says:

    I was just reading something this morning that struck a cord. Prior to WW2, many Jewish leaders were sounding the warning for the Jews to leave Europe and return to Israel before it became to late. Most did not listen, and 6 million died from not heading the warning..

    this parallel formed in my mind….

    John, and other prophets have been sounding the warning here in the US for years that we need to return to God. Sadly, most of us have not listened. How many of us are going to die as a result?

  9. Ron says:

    An interesting book published a few years ago opened with the premise “The Writing is on the Wall.” The book was by an author named Mark Steyn and titled “After America… Get Ready for Armageddon.” People now seem to have an innate sense that America is heading for serious trouble and this world is about to drastically change.

    O.k…..back by popular demand.ha,ha,ha.This is the artist,formerly known as Dan.w[smile]….Anyways,we shall title this one,always the outcast.When I was young,I was a liberal who thought in my heart,I knew something someone else didn’t know…a smug quiet jerk.Thought I was a good kid,..was rotten to the core.Later,as I matured???,and aged some,I saw the errors of my ways,then became more conservative,because I realized free lunches cost somebody something.I remember my past,reading Abby Hoffman’s book titled [steal this book],about being a sponge and living free…and thinking,if everyone steals this book,it’ll never make it on a best sellers list!,Anywhoo,at 27,the Lord reelled me in,eventhough I had no desire to want to be a religious nut.He moved all the furniture in my life to show me Him,and my need of Him.I’ve always been going against culture…since day one.Did God bring up a rebel?,No,but through it all,I’ve learned great life lessons.One of them is to fear God more than man.Man is fickle,God is not.If you believe the Lord Jesus,and take Him at His word,it may not always be easy,but He really doe’s move the earth,heaven too,to get His will accomplished…..Sometimes,He lets us get a glimpse of Himself at work.You will know when that happens to you,because you will be left in awe and speechless.What an Awesome God we serve.Praise to our Lord Jesus Christ,…blessings to all Jewish people everywhere.God is STILL on the throne.Thanks,Danw It’s all about Jesus.Period.

  11. Dan.w says:

    I echo all of you,time is short,lets do what the Lord has for us to do,time is almost up.

  12. Clay says:

    John, I tried to put in a plug for your book today. I was driving and listening to The Wilkow Majority (a conservative talk show host), and Andrew Wilcow and one of his guests were ridiculing a U.S. Senator who said that tornadoes like the one in Oklahoma were a result of homosexuals, gay rights, etc. Wilcow said something to the effect of “…we don’t want people like that in the Republican Party”. I picked up my cell phone and called the 800 number and talked to the call screener, and it sounded like I was going to get on the air. However, he came back about 5 minutes later and told me he couldn’t fit me in and had to let me go. Anyway, I was going to be very brief by simply saying: “Mr. Wilcow, if you were to read a book called ‘As America Has Done to Israel’ by John McTerman, you would never again ridicule that kind of proclamation. In fact, you would be astounded at the links between natural disasters in America and our nation’s actions and policies against the Jewish state.” (Not to mention links to homosexual events.)

    Your book could be one of the most important books ever written if our nation’s leaders would only take heed. (World leaders as well.) Of course, I don’t think it’s in the cards; we’re way past the point of no return.

    • JohnMcTernan says:

      Thanks for thinking of me.
      If you can get me names and address, I’ll send copies of the book.
      God bless you.

  13. Keith Johnson says:

    I believe the man who will become antichrist is alive on earth today. (I do not believe it is obama however) Satan knows who this man is and is waiting until the restrainer is taken out of the way. What or who the restrainer is I’m not sure but some force is operating now to prevent Satan from having his way. As America declines in power because it has turned it back on God, that restraining force could be lifted and we’ll see the power of evil sweep across the earth. I’m not trying to imply that America is that restraining force but the Holy Spirit that has guided America throughout its history is being quickly removed by America’s own choice. The protective hand of God is being lifted from America and we will see much tribulation within our borders.

  14. Joe says:

    We should be ashamed of ourselves especially the Christians in this country for allowing all this to happen, (where are the wise, where is the scribe, where are the disputers of this age has not GOD made foolishness the wisdom of this world) , its makes me so angry what has happened to our nation, its a righteous anger like David had against his enemies you are allowed to have a righteous anger. Why don’t we do what Egypt did and congregate in Washington and do not leave till these ungodly people are removed from office. think about it. GOD HELP US. What are we to do loose our God and country like Israel when Babylon came and took them.

    To everyone here … I have felt the heaviness this week more than usual . It is the same as John and Joni and Irene, Barbara, Dan, & John Notter have felt at times.. but when I read Gary’s post today , I stopped … and I cried. For the past 15 years I had the honor of being in an outdoor Passion Play (The Story of Jesus in Central Florida.) in 2012, the Director and Pastor, Mike Graham announced he must obey God, and that year we did 5 weekends of The Story of Noah instead. It is so clear to me now the reasons why, and I thank God that Mike listened & obeyed. Talk about WARNINGS … Noah tried and tried to tell people about the Flood, but they thought he was insane. At first , it was just his friends, but then his own family even began to doubt, and called him crazy! ( Anyone relate to this?? ..) He must have felt very much alone….as some of you must feel now. Then ~ as it began to rain, and Noah quickly gathered his family and the animals into the Ark, the door closed. It was so dark ~ the people suddenly realized that Noah had been speaking the Truth . The lightening flashed, and as it began to rain harder and harder, women and children were banging on the door that was closed and would never reopen. The people were screaming, crying, and begging for someone to PLEASE let them come in. Grown men lifted children to their shoulders as the water rose, to save them from drowning. All the screams fell on deaf ears. No one could hear them any longer. Time was up. No more chances … That was the absolute most powerful scene to look at. God brought it back to me as I read these posts about WARNINGS … and I cried. – People Get Ready!

    Sadly most of the Christians care more about sending the next text than congregating and praying anywhere. Churches are preaching a watered down Gospel and some Christians only go to church to get the starbucks coffee and to get their dose of feel good for the week. That is the state of the church in America and we wonder why we voted in a the congress, senate and President that we have?

  17. melzar daniels says:

    Revelation 18:4 Come out of her my people that ye be not partakers of her sins that ye receive none of her plagues. This is the strongest command from God in the whole book of Revelation. Christians in America now that you have seen the writing on the wall please go the extra step and leave the usa. melzar

  18. Denise says:

    I haven’t chimed in for awhile, but I read all the posts and comments and pray for all of you. My heart has been so heavy, watching the downfall of our country. I keep thinking of the people on flight 370, wondering how many of them are saved and how many lost. Watching Russia/Ukraine is like watching a movie, already knowing how it will end. I pray for Israel daily and am amazed how little has been reported (other than here) the last 2 weeks, while these other stories are taking precedence. Oh, and BHO was on Ellen, touting healthcare. Big news–not.

    Anyway, I’ve thought a lot about how Sin=Giving into the Flesh over the Spirit. Whenever I have tried to have my own way–my wants, my needs–I am saying I know better than God, and I have suffered the consequences. When I repent and follow His ways, my will is diminished, and the Spirit is free to guide/enrich me. Christ must increase, and I must decrease. If only everyone would realize this. We are indeed in a time where men and women are “great lovers of themselves.” We, as a nation, don’t need God when we are so puffed up with our own accomplishments. (But are these people really happy?)The humility to thank God for our blessings is nowhere to be found.Pride rules.

    We have now aborted nearly 10x the number of Jews who perished in the Holocaust. A disproportionate number of these babies are African American, but our prez says nada about that. A leader in the pro-life movement, my state of Michigan is sadly now debating homosexual marriage. We’ve come from the WWII Greatest Generation of selflessness to the most me-generated time in history.
    (John Hagee, the only preacher I see who strongly speaks out against these atrocities, has a series on America turning its back on God. Worth watching.)

    The Obamites would rather see the world go to hell than admit they were wrong. I am amazed at the length the reprobates will go to defend this joke of a leader.(but of course, he does encourage their sin, so they love him.) We must not put our faith in weak men but in our omnipotent God. The point of no return,the wide and narrow paths are before us. Which will we choose?

    THY–not my– will be done.

  19. Loretta says:

    AMEN and AMEN!
    May God continue to guide us, lead us, direct us.
    II Tim 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

  20. Dan.w says:

    Amen to you,my brothers and sisters.God still has His remnant.Some of us are unable to pick up stakes and go somewhere else….this whole world is cursed in it’s present state..and remember,wherever the righteous go,rats always accompany them,i.e.mayflower,ect.Things look tough,and they are..but we have a God who is above all things.He is outside of time.He is not armtwisted by His creation,even if they rebel.We are totally safe in the loving arms of Jesus.No one can snatch you from Him.He is our best hope…He is our only hope.He is the only hope we need.Not to sound all mystical and new agey….but when we as individuals surrender fully to Him…it is like the heavens stop being as brass,and you can almost see what we will one day personally get to observe.We have so much hope…we really do.Thank you Lord Jesus,for great Bible teaching here,for all my friends and brothers/sisters who love you like I do.Please,help us as we walk,one small step at a time,until we behold you,face to face.Dan.w P.S. please be merciful to sister Joni and wrap your arms of love around her,I ask in your matchless name Lord Jesus,Amen.

    How’s that “hope and change” garbage working out for all you BHO worshippers?

  22. Denise says:

    Update: Yesterday at 5 p.m., Michigan ban on homosexual marriage was overturned, even tho 59% voted in 2004 that marriage= 1man +1woman. A “pastor” in Muskeegon is ready and willing to perform these unions immediately, and State offices are open today–Saturday!- to allow same-sex couples to apply for marriage licenses. (source: Fox 17 Grand Rapids). I wish the gov’t were so accommodating for wounded vets who’ve been waiting years for help;

    John, I’m fascinated how you connect the weather to these events. MI has had the worst winter in 20 yrs. I am wondering what will happen here now.

  23. Mary E. says:

    Excellent and very sobering article, on the changing attitude of the Evangelical church toward Israel. Those of us who love Israel are truly becoming the minority.

  24. Dan.w says:

    When we ‘cut loose from Israel’,or curse her or the Jewish people,it’s like drilling holes in our own boat.This is a spiritual battle.We don’t want to be on the wrong side of this.We are to bless the Jews and Israel,and let God take care of the details.I see some who have drifted into dangerous waters we could call replacement theology,and if they stay on that track,it will come back to bite them.God bless all of you,in Christ,Danw

  25. Irene C says:

    @Denise – I saw that and it grieved me. It’s only a matter of time before Ohio has theirs overturned also.

    @Mary E, That is such a sad article. So many are turning away from the God of the Bible and are being led by false teachers.

    Soon, I feel, we will all be going Home.

    God Bless and Maranatha

  26. S. O, says:

    Amen, Dan! Your enthusiasm for the Lord is such an encouragement. God bless all of you here. Joni, you are in my prayers as is your son. Sometimes when I get down and everything seems to be going wrong, it lifts my spirit to know that there are others out there praying. Thank you all and especially brother John for this great site. S.O.

  27. Gary says:

    Denise, who’s the pastor in Muskegon? that’s my hometown…..

  28. Norman says:
    Paul Wilkinson reports here on both ‘Christ at the Checkpoint’ conferences in Bethlehem. Certain ‘charismatic’ mega-church leaders cited in Mary’s posting should already be known to us. Indeed, Kenneth Copeland, and his Scandinavian counterpart, Ulf Eckman, have just converted to Roman Catholicism, and the agreeable rhetoric between them will no doubt deceive many.
    This apostasy is a clear sign of the times; but in reacting to it, I feel we should giving ammunition to the enemy – so easily done in this particular sphere. The Lord does not share His glory with another: He is able to save Israel single-handed (Cf Ps 78:65-66).
    “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Lk 21:36). Praise God: perhaps a thorn in the flesh spared you or I from such head-long error.
    Solomon’s Song speaks of Christ’s and his bride, whom He’ll present to himself ‘a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish’ (Eph 5:27). What a contrast to that unchaste woman in Revelation 17! We see the TRUE BRIDE in Song Ch. 2:2: “As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters”. The thorns represent the fellowship of Christ’s sufferings. Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed as one of these. So, be encouraged you who love Him!

  29. Angelyn says:

    I don’t comment here often, but I am in agreement with everyone here. Keith, I agree that America has been used by God as a force against evil, and now that we have been turned over to Satan, we will fall. I picture us as the foundation of a building that is crumbling, and when the final crack breaks open, we will suddenly crash, taking the rest of the building (world) with it.

    It is so sad to me that our Christian leaders just don’t have the courage to stand against this. I think most of them believe in the pre-trib rapture, so they feel no urgency to warn the people. Unfortunately, I think America will fall before then.
    I pray for mercy upon the saints.

  30. Carol says:

    Denise google The Truth Project on Vimeo and watch session #3…you will be amazed at your comment and what is taught in that session. You can get a limited membership for free. The course is taught by Del Tackett ,a former president of the Focus on the Family Institute and a former Senior Vice President of Focus on the Family

  31. Denise says:

    For Gary:

    Related stories are on this page. I didn’t find the pastor’s name. Saw it on a.m. news

  32. Denise says:

    Did anyone else think Biden’s saying this past wk that he’d once said he should nominate Obama for sainthood was a precursor of the False Prophet lifting up Antichrist?

    Also, John, please comment on our giving up control of the internet. Will China control?

  33. Denise says:

    Carol, thank you for directing me to this.( I was able to watch w/o having to sign up for anything.) I found the professor articulate and easy to understand.

  34. Dan.w says:

    We don’t have many christian leaders.The world is held sway by the power of the wicked one,they would not knowingly ‘vote’for a christian,because it is against all that this world system believes in.Remember,Barabas ‘won’over Jesus in His time,so it is today.As far as the pre-trib rapture,that would be the best reason to warn others…to flee from the wrath to come.The pre-tribs get a bad rap,because it is mostly misunderstood.It is NOT an escape clause for a group who think they are special…It IS Christ coming to catch away His bride…which as I understand it,is those who believe Him and the blessed hope promise He gave to us who take Him at His word.Do some believers die beforehand…yes..but that won’t cancel out this promise.This promise comes before the great tribulation,and before the second coming.God bless all of you,Dan.w

  35. Loretta says:

    AMEN brother Dan!
    I Thes 4:13 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. And cont. on …5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
    9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. Love & Blessings.

    Brother John, I know how busy you have been, but I am desperately missing the regular updates that you used to give. Things are happening so quickly, it’s hard for me to keep up!
    God bless you!!
