    This Thursday, July the 4th, I will not be celebrating with the rest of this country. Instead, I will be in mourning for this Nation…repenting before the Lord, clothed in spiritual sack cloth and ashes. I can no longer pray for this Nation as a whole, but will lift individuals up for salvation and their safety.

    My heart breaks for the thousands of innocent children being adopted or even natural born children raised by homosexuals. There is no telling the depravity being taught to twist their minds. It will only be by God’s hand they have a chance of salvation and to know Christ as Savior. I hate to think how this evil is warping their mind. There will probably be legal ramifications if a Christian witnesses to these children or mention homosexuality being immoral or a sin. Very sad day that we even have to consider this.

      Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge,
      I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

      This verse fits what is happening to America right now.
      All the curses of the law are now upon America.

    I have been so puzzled by the political and social beliefs of my friends but especially by the people at my church. I kept on telling myself that it is as if a veil of deception has been placed over their ability to reason or see the signs of the times. I have tried to point out to my prayer group that the USA is undergoing a chastisement from God. So few believe this.

    Your statement quoted: “We have to face the fact that God has turned the nation over to reprobates for judgments. I hope that everyone understands this: the reprobates in authority, by itself, is a sign of judgment. God sends both delusions and turns people over to a reprobate mind as a form of judgment. Tens of millions of Americans are right now under God’s judgment and do not have a clue. They have been judged for their sin and rebellion against His word”

    This perfectly sums up what is going on in the USA. Romans 1:24
    “Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves.”

    • JohnMcTernan says:

      Yes, you clearly see the judgment and what God is doing.
      Count yourself blessed that you see this.
      You walk in the fear of the Lord

    The 501;c3 is a snare for churches,and may be a muzzle used by those who hate the Lord.We have to stop [asking]for permission from a government which is supposed to be working for us.Government is not my god…I agree with brother John,and all of you..We are really in for it,judgment wise…This is not going to be pretty. Father God…help us..we who believe your Word,and trust in Your Son.Keep us in Your tender care,safe from all the evil that surrounds us,and bring us to the place You want us to be…For Your Honor,and Glory,to raise up the name of Jesus…for all to see. Dan.w Thanks brother John,and all of you…for being here.

    Several years ago I read an article by Kitty Werthmann called “after America” She was a young girl in Austria in 1938. When you read it you will see how evil slips in virtually unnoticed and then evil leaders take over. You know the scariest part is that America came in and rescued them but as this is titled “after America” there is no human force to rescue us from this totally out of control government. We are truly seeing how God has blinded the eyes of so many.

    It is so sad to look into the eyes of my grandchildren and wonder what they may have to endure……all of them are saved….praise the Lord. I am finding so much comfort in Psalms 27 and trying to memorize it. Again John thank you for keeping us informed I’ m sure you must be exhausted at times.

    Please dear God remember your children in the coming days and weeks.

    Two news items today in Australia that sadden me. Two homosexual men are in court for travelling the world selling their adopted son into sexual acts with men.

    The other item is about an Australian man running an orphanage in Africa and sexually abusing the boys. His defence argues that it is “against international law to charge someone with offences that discriminate against homosexuality”. This is what it has come to.

    Suffer the little children, dear Lord.

    Shalom

      You watch that the laws against pedophilia will soon fall.
      This is needed to fulfill the lusts of the sodomites.

  8. Melany says:

    America was once considered to be the hope of the world. That sentence doesn’t even make sense anymore. I feel like my heart is dragging on the ground. ‘Have no desire to celebrate July 4th, either, as this is NOT one nation under God, with liberty & justice for all. Since all of us are renting here and our lease is almost up, may I just remind you that we are here, at this time in history, because God wants us here. If He wants us here, He will see us through this. Jackie, I will second what you said ~ that our loving God remember those of us who are trusting Him. I pray that anyone who is on the fence about accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior, please do so now. John, everyone here, God bless you all.

    It is just so eerie the things that are happening! It seems like some strange dream. The way the public opinion of gay marriage and so many other things that used to be looked at by the majority in such a different way than it is today. It shocks me when I see how more and more people support that lifestyle. It does, for some reason, seem though that more people are against abortions and that maybe we are making some headway on this issue as news comes out about the horrible things that have happened at some abortion clinics. Thank you Jesus for your grace and mercy over us and help us to keep praying for our nation and our leaders and not just complain.

  10. Irene C says:

    I agree Brother John, my head is spinning too. I knew that a time of delusion would come, but I never thought it would happen this quickly.

    As for this heat wave, there is another wild fire, this one is Arizona. I just heard that 19 fire fighters lost their lives. I don’t have the complete story on that yet, but I’m sure it will be online soon.

    We have murdered our children, we have corrupted ourselves with idols and fornication, and we are betraying Israel. When I think about this nation, one verse comes to mind. Jeremiah 11:14 – “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.” I believe we have reached that point. I still spread the Gospel, I still encourage those who have not bent their knees to Baal, I definitely pray for our children, and I still cry out the warnings. However, I no longer pray for my nation. I am looking up and waiting for our Lord to take us Home. Love you my brothers and sisters. Looking forward to meet all of you at the throne of Jesus. Maranatha

    • JohnMcTernan says:

      This was a real good post and the verses from Jeremiah was right on.
      This time is very close.

  11. Lori says:

    John, I too see this coming eventually about the pedophiles coming out saying they were born this way, and they are just attracted to children. I’ve brought this up in conversing with homosexuals and it makes them so upset that you compare what they do with “consenting adults” in the homosexual lifestyle, to pedophiles. What they don’t understand is there has to be a line drawn, and of course we all know here, that the line should be drawn with a man and woman in marriage, and nothing further than that! Once mankind steps over one line, what’s to stop him from stepping over another line and so on, they become desensitized to “anything goes” eventually. Lord bless everyone here, I’m praying for this ministry and the people who come here.

  12. Lori says:

    Jackie, I am going to check this book out, it sounds like something I want to read. A couple of months ago, I was cleaning house and found my book “The Hiding Place” by Corrie Ten Boom. Wow, what an eye opener that book is, it was sad, but at the same time very uplifting spiritually speaking. The entire Ten Boom family was so used by God to protect the Jewish people, and eventually bring the gospel into the concentration camp that Corrie and her sister were in. Such and inspiring story of faith, compassion, and love for the Lord Jesus.

  13. Pat says:

    In refference to the #10 comment, the youtube link provided does not work, I just clicked on it and it said the link does not exist. Maybe Janine has another link she can post. Thanks

  14. Melany says:

    Lori: Corrie Ten Boom!! I love her and have read all her books. There is one quote of hers that I’ve always remembered. “There is no pit so deep, that God’s love is not deeper still.”

    Melany, Thank you for that quote from Corrie Ten Boom, God’s love does surpass our human comprehension!

  17. Nancy says:

    ‘Things we couldn’t say’ by Diet Eman is another excellent book from WWII in fact she was briefly in the same camp as Corrie Ten Boom! Diet did a tremendous amount to help the Jewish people at that time, she might be alive yet living in MI.

  18. Nancy says:

    Please pray for my two sons and granddaughter living south of the Varnell Az fire!

  19. Joe says:

    Homosexuals are destroying our country just like they did to Sodom and Gammorah and the other 5 cities around them , the political leaders where all for this I’m sure what happen to them , is the same way it is happening to us.
    There is nothing new under the sin, this has happened many times, no nation has ever servived this kind of sin.

  20. Jenny says:

    Brother, can you shed some light as to what is going on in Egypt with these mass demonstrations? I’m not sure where they are in the big picture. Are they apart of Psalms 83/Obadiah war or will they be destroyed somewhere else?

    Here is an article from CNN about us sending troops to protect embassy.

    http://security.blogs.cnn.com/2013/06/28/out-of-precaution-marines-on-ready-to-go-to-egypt-to-protect-u-s-embassy-citizens/

    Is reprobate thinking perverted in every way? “Woe to him who calls evil good…” Is that what we are seeing in Egypt? Muslims are sexually perverted deviants. (The NSA is gonna love that lost comment! LOL!)

    I’d appreciate feedback from anyone who can shed some light.

    Thxs!

  21. Mary E. says:

    @ Irene C.
    Thank you for the scripture from Jeremiah. I consider it a third confirmation that the Lord is instructing us NOT to pray for this Nation. I have 2 other “Watchmen” ministries that I trust, beside John’s, and both no longer feel led to pray for this country, as a whole. Only individuals. One said it this way, “I have been forbidden by the Lord to pray for this nation”. That statement shook me more than I care to admit. This was after the decision from the Supreme Court. I feel the same and it is always good to wait and see if the Lord confirms what we think He may be saying. If the Lord is speaking and telling us, His watchmen, to stop praying for our country, then I believe unstoppable judgment must be at hand. The hedge of protection around the country has fallen. On the 4th, I will be repenting,mourning and praying to the Lord for my family and friends. I will also ask for His protection over all on this blog.

  22. Irene C says:

    My dear Nancy, I will be in prayer for your sons and granddaughter specifically as I pray for all in AZ who are being affected by this tragic fire. And for you, praying for God’s spirit of peace.

  23. Melany says:

    ((Nancy)) ~ ‘Definitely keeping your sons & granddaughter in prayer. Thank you for letting us know.

  24. Irene C says:

    Jenny, I would also like to hear Brother Johns take on Egypt. When their revolution first started, I stumbled upon Isaiah 19 while looking for something else so I decided to re-read it. I then had one of those “ah-ha” moments. I had shared that message but was scoffed at. Everyone at the time was cheering for “democracy”. The verses that really caught my eye were 2-4

    Isaiah 19:2-4
    2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

    3 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.

    4 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the Lord of hosts.

    The Egyptians who had dreams of a better life with a different leader were sadly mistaken. Hmmm, kind of reminds me of the U.S. now that I think about it.

  25. Jackie says:

    Lori, if you will google Kitty Werthmann you can read the article “after America, there is no place to go.”

    I find it so amazing how so many of us are reading the same scripture verses. I have been studying Jeremiah with the help of commentary of Matthew Henry. What an awesome study. Jeremiah, it seems, is talking to America.

    I too have read so many of Corrie Ten Booms books. What a women of God and oh how God worked in and thru her life. Oh to have the faith and courage of this women. The unknown, I must admit, leaves me at times a bit fearful but as I read thru Jeremiah I see how eager God is to forgive and bring everyone into fellowship with Him. He requests so little from us and gives us so much in return. We have JESUS we have it all.

    Keep looking up, stay prayed up and hopefully before too long we will be meeting on the other side.

    The reprobates have been indoctrinating our kids for a long time..in school,on t.v,in the movies…They are told to question authority,even the U.N. and our socialist judges have a hand in this.I believe New Sodom will turn our children against us for sexual license.We will go from 2 men,or two women,to 3 men,or 1 and two,people marrying animals,or motorcycles…Depravity only stops when the Lord intervenes.We,at present are a target by our false gov.,our feminized and emasculated military,the i.r.s.,and by the false religious system already in place…I forgot to say,also the hard left,the soft right..did I forget anyone?Thank you Lord Jesus for letting us be the world’s enemy for your name sake.They hated you first…It’s a honor to be counted in your number,and called by your name,Danw

  31. Matt says:

    We have to understand that the acceptance and approval of homosexual marriage was inevitable. Since the introduction of the pill in the early 60’s, no fault divorce and abortion approval in the 70’s, pornography in the 80’s, gluttony in the 90’s, and rampant greed in the past decade, we are a Nation of sinners. The traditional family unit was destroyed. The downfall of this country is years in the making. We should have been weeping these past 50 years.

    The best thing to do is to pray to the Holy Spirit as often as possible for the conversion of all sinners, especially homosexuals.

    • JohnMcTernan says:

      You are exactly correct.
      This is a pattern with the church not standing during the collapse of America

  32. Lori says:

    Nancy, I will say a prayer tonight for you sons and granddaughter. I always plead the blood of Jesus over my family, and I will pray the same for your family members in Arizona. Lord Bless and protect you all.

  33. Lori says:

    Cynthia, I looked at the link you shared, how depraved can the world get….how disgusting!!

  34. Lori says:

    Matt, I’ve thought the same thing for awhile now. You can see the pattern just like you said mostly starting around the early 60’s. It’s so very sad to see such a one blessed America go into the garbage. Thanks for posting this!

  35. Joni says:

    The man I was married to for 32 years, and the father of my son Joel, just informed me he had just recently gone to a “pride event” in Seattle/Sodom, as his job encouraged all to go if they could, on “off time” of course.
    He is from the East Coast, Massachusetts to be exact, tho the Navy brought him out West where we met 33 years ago, and he hasn’t really looked back.
    Loved the Seattle area.
    ANYWAYS……..
    He was explaining to me the shock, and disgust he felt while wondering around underneath the Space Needle, at the Seattle Center, while most of the men were only wearing very skimpy tight underwear, nothing else.
    He only stayed a few minutes, and left, HORRIFIED at the NUMBERS.
    HORRIFIED. And it takes more to horrify him than it does me.
    Ok, now for all you people out there who want to call me a “homophobe” or a “bigot” go right ahead if it makes you feel better about your lust for one another and your unbridled sin, but please explain the need of the perversion in our face?
    Heteros do not run around yelling “Pride, Pride” and showing the world our underclothes, so do not try to convince me this is
    A. Normal.
    B. Somehow “Equal”???
    C. Something to be proud of?

    I mean really, it is SICK and DISGUSTING.
    Period.

    God Bless us all,
    Joni
