We know that we are of God, and the whole world is under the sway of the evil one. (1 John 5:19)
America – a Christian Nation?
Christian nationalism is the belief that the American nation is defined by Christianity and that the government must act actively to keep it that way. Christian patriots say that America should and must remain a “Christian country” – not just by observing American history, but as a normative program of what must continue.
Scholars like Samuel Huntington have put forward a similar argument: that America is defined by its “Anglo-Protestant” past and that if we do not preserve our cultural heritage, we will lose our identity and freedom.
At the heart of Christian Nationalism is the notion that America is a unique instrument of God in the world, having been raised up in God’s providence to accomplish his purposes of establishing Christianity around the world. Many evangelical interpreters of the Book of Revelation have stated that America is the good guy in the story of God and the nations, and so the means by which God is working to spread his rule.
This is connected in the founding narrative of America that she is the shining city on a hill, an elect nation God has chosen to utilize for his purposes. As long as America remains moored to her Christian heritage and values, she will be blessed by God with economic and military power, and so be able to carry out his mission of spreading freedom across the world.
American triumphalism declares that the USA will triumph over her enemies through Divine blessing, of which American power and prosperity are signs, ensuring that America will have a preeminent position in the affairs of the world. Faithfulness to God will ensure that America will continue in her elect role as “leader of the free world.”
The ecclesial triumphalism that is a corollary to American triumphalism has shaped the Church to expect an earthly home in which the Church will be safe to practice her faith, which will be secured by God raising up political leaders to ensure her safety and protect the American heritage. American Christianity has long subscribed to the theological notion that America was founded as a Christian nation, and that the civic mission of the Church is to fight for the Christian nation against all enemies, be they foreign or domestic.
The Christian right has approached political engagement as a means of securing and protecting Christian values and of pushing back against godless secularists. This creates the conviction that political engagement is the means of securing for ourselves a culture in which Christian morality is dominant in society, and also to ensure that Christians have the right and power to guarantee such a culture. The sense that America is being taken over by godless secularists, thereby threatening America’s status as the Blessed Nation, is an important factor for understanding why so many evangelicals voted for Trump.
America – Part of the New World Order?
The New World Order is a conspiracy of secretly emerging leftist totalitarian world government that will eventually take over the whole world – including potentially the United States.
A common theme of conspiracy theories about the New World Order is that the secret power elite conspires with a globalist agenda to eventually rule the world through authoritarianism. Many influential historical and contemporary figures are said to be part of Kabbalah, which works through many frontal organizations to organize major political and financial events, from the causes of systematic crises to pressures. controversial policies at national and international level, as well as measures. in the ongoing plan to achieve world domination.
Since the 19th century, many apocalyptic millennial Christian eschatologists, starting with John Nelson Darby, have predicted a globalist conspiracy to impose a tyrannical New World Order governing structure as the fulfillment of prophecies about the “end time” in the Bible, specifically in the Book of Ezekiel, the Book of Daniel, the Olivet discourse found in the Synoptic Gospels, and Revelation 13:7.
They claim that people who have made a deal with the Devil to gain wealth and power have become pawns in a supernatural chess game to move humanity into accepting a utopian world government that rests on the spiritual foundations of a syncretic-messianic world religion, which will later reveal itself to be a dystopian world empire that imposes the imperial cult of an “Unholy Trinity” of Satan, the Antichrist and the False Prophet.
In many contemporary Christian conspiracy theories, the False Prophet will be either the last pope of the Catholic Church (groomed and installed by a Jesuit conspiracy), a guru from the New Age movement, or even the leader of an elite fundamentalist Christian organization like the Fellowship, while the Antichrist will be either the President of the European Union, the Caliph of a pan-Islamic state, or even the Secretary-General of the United Nations.
Conspiracy theorists of the Christian right, starting with British revisionist historian Nesta Helen Webster, believe there is an ancient occult conspiracy—started by the first mystagogues of Gnosticism and perpetuated by their alleged esoteric successors, such as the Kabbalists, Cathars, Knights Templar, Hermeticists, Rosicrucians, Freemasons, and, ultimately, the Illuminati—which seeks to subvert the Judeo-Christian foundations of the Western world and implement the New World Order through a one-world religion that prepares the masses to embrace the imperial cult of the Antichrist.
More broadly, they speculate that globalists who plot on behalf of a New World Order are directed by occult agencies: spiritual hierarchies, demons, fallen angels, and Lucifer.
Viewing the history of the world as the history of warfare between secret societies, conspiracy theorists go further than Rothkopf, and other scholars who have studied the global power elite, by claiming that established upper-class families with “old money” who founded and finance the Bilderberg Group, Bohemian Club, Club of Rome, Council on Foreign Relations, Rhodes Trust, Skull and Bones, Trilateral Commission, and similar think tanks and private clubs, are illuminated conspirators plotting to impose a totalitarian New World Order.
Conspiracy theorists believe these groups are managing the implementation of an authoritarian world government controlled by the United Nations and a global central bank, which maintains political power through the financialization of the economy, regulation and restriction of speech through the concentration of media ownership, mass surveillance, widespread use of state terrorism, and an all-encompassing propaganda that creates a cult of personality around a puppet world leader and ideologizes leftist world government as the culmination of history’s progress.
America – Embracing True Christianity?
While a sense of justice is important, so is understanding God’s purpose and kingdom—an “upside-down” kingdom that calls us to love our enemies and return evil with kindness (5:44). It’s a stark contrast to how the world might react, yet it’s a response that God seeks to nurture in us.
Christianity focuses on the person and work of Jesus Christ, as defined in the Christian Bible and in the apostolic and Nicene denominations. It is a gathering of people “of all nations and tribes and people and languages” who worship Jesus (Rev. 7: 9), a faith that unites Jews and Greeks, Americans and non-Americans.
Christianity is political in the sense that its followers have always understood their faith in such a way as to question, influence and persuade their secular fidelity.
I had a vision and a word from the Lord during worship, to pass to each of us. In the vision I had a hour glass in my left hand and the time had just run out of the above section of time. My right hand rested on top of the hour glass and the Lord told me to flip it over. So as I did this He said to me that “the Time is Redeemed.”
Now the hour glass rested in my right hand (no longer in the left hand). This indicated a changing of the guard – as is government! And the sand began to come down at the speed that it was designed to do. Immediately following he told me to to tap two times with the first two fingers of my right had on the top of my left wrist signifying that the time was now. The interpretation is that the time of the corporation of the US by the Left had drawn to a close and time lost and stolen would be redeemed to the Right-ious. Even the hour glass held in the left hand was turned over to the right hand. Our Constitution is being restored by His hand!!!
The Word of God calls all Christians to purity
“Write to the angel of the church in Laodicea:
“The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Originator of God’s creation says: I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I’m rich; I have become wealthy and need nothing,’ and you don’t know that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked, I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire so that you may be rich, white clothes so that you may be dressed and your shameful nakedness not be exposed, and ointment to spread on your eyes so that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and discipline. So be committed and repent. Listen! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and have dinner with him, and he with Me. The victor: I will give him the right to sit with Me on My throne, just as I also won the victory and sat down with My Father on His throne. (Revelation 3:14-21)
In the Book of Revelation, the seventh and final letter to the churches of ancient Asia Minor is to the church in the city of Laodicea. Laodicea was a wealthy, industrious city in the province of Phrygia in the Lycos Valley.
In contrast to the other six churches, the Laodicean church has nothing to commend it.
Jesus begins the message with condemnation: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I’m rich; I have become wealthy and need nothing,’ and you don’t know that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked” (Revelation 3:15-17).
Jesus emphasizes their “lukewarm,” apathetic nature three times. As a result of their ambivalence to spiritual things, Jesus would have nothing to do with them. He would “vomit them out,” as the people of Laodicea would spit out the tepid water that flowed from the underground aqueducts to their city. With their apathy came a spiritual blindness; they claimed to be rich, blessed and self-sufficient. Perhaps they were rich in material things. But, spiritually, the Laodiceans were in a wretched, pitiful condition, made all the worse in that they could not see their need. This was a church filled with self-deceived hypocrites.
Jesus calls the Laodicean church to repent of its sin: “I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire so that you may be rich, white clothes so that you may be dressed and your shameful nakedness not be exposed, and ointment to spread on your eyes so that you may see” (Revelation 3:18). Their material wealth had no eternal benefit, so Jesus commands them to come to Him for true, spiritual riches (see Isaiah 55:1-2). Only Christ can supply an everlasting inheritance, clothe us in righteousness, and heal our spiritual blindness.
Jesus then notes His concern for His church in Laodicea: “As many as I love, I rebuke and discipline. So be committed and repent. Listen! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and have dinner with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:19-20).
His rebuke is not born of animosity but of love. “the Lord disciplines the one He loves” (Hebrews 12:6). The desired response to God’s reproof was zealous change and true repentance.
Verse 20 is often used as an evangelistic appeal, yet its original context communicates Christ’s desire for fellowship with His lukewarm church in Laodicea. The church is nominally Christian, but Christ Himself has been locked out. Rather than turn His back on them, He knocks, seeking someone to acknowledge the church’s need and open the door. If they would repent, Jesus would come in and take His rightful place in the church. He would share a meal with them, a Middle Eastern word picture speaking of closeness of relationship.
Jesus then makes a promise to the believers in Laodicea: “The victor: I will give him the right to sit with Me on My throne, just as I also won the victory and sat down with My Father on His throne” (Revelation 3:21). The “victor” refers to any believer, and the promise is that he will share Christ’s future kingdom.
In summary, the church at Laodicea, much like us, had become apathetic in their love for Christ. They were allowing “the seduction of wealth, and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.” (Mark 4:19). Christ called them to repent and live zealously for Him, to “choose for yourselves today the one you will worship” (Joshua 24:15).
The Lord Jesus issues the same call to those who say they follow Him today.
How can we be made pure?
Through giving our hearts to Jesus the Messiah, we can wash our robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. We approach the throne through praise, worship, and giving thanks.
Praise and Worship
I praise and worship you, Father God, Jehovah, My Lord, Yahweh
You are Almighty God, Father of Lights, the Ancient of Days.
You have known me since the foundations of the World.

You are my Savior, my Christ, my Shepherd, and the Lord of All.
You are my Faithful Intercessor before the Father.
You gave yourself willingly on the cross for my sins and
for those who will accept you as Lord and Savior.
You are the Anointed One, the Lord of Lords, and the King of Kings.
You are the I AM! You are love! I praise and worship you, Jesus my Savior!
I praise and worship you Holy Spirit, my Counselor and Guide, Ruach HaKodesh
You are the All Powerful Spirit of the Living God.

- Thank you for giving me a worthy purpose and direction for my life, and guiding me in my daily thoughts, words, and actions. Let my life be a “living sacrifice” to you.
- Thank you, Lord, you are good. Your gracious love to me endures forever!
In the middle of intense Tribulation, the Lord rescues all Christians:
After this I looked, and there was a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, which no one could number, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were robed in white with palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:
Salvation belongs to our God,
who is seated on the throne,
and to the Lamb!
All the angels stood around the throne, the elders, and the four living creatures, and they fell facedown before the throne and worshiped God, saying:
Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom
and thanksgiving and honor
and power and strength
be to our God forever and ever. Amen.
Then one of the elders asked me, “Who are these people robed in white, and where did they come from?”
I said to him, “Sir, you know.”
Then he told me:
These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation.
They washed their robes and made them white
in the blood of the Lamb.
For this reason they are before the throne of God,
and they serve Him day and night in His sanctuary.
The One seated on the throne will shelter them:
They will no longer hunger;
they will no longer thirst;
the sun will no longer strike them,
nor will any heat.
For the Lamb who is at the center of the throne
will shepherd them;
He will guide them to springs of living waters,
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. (Revelation 7:9-17)
If you are not sure that you are saved, you can accept Christ into your life right now, by praying:
“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior.”

It’s my hope and prayer America will move in the God fearing direction
The recent Supreme Court decisions, are steps in the right direction?
1. Reversal Roe v Wade
2. High School Coach Fired For Prayer On Field, Court Rules It Was Unconstitutiinal To Do So
3. Court Ruled In Favor Of Religious School Choice In New York, With Government Funding

This current administration chooses the New World Order.
mailmandan, July 3, 2022
America must choose right now, not in the future. Which means that illegitimate “president” Joe Biden and his entire administration should be arrested (this coming week), prosecuted, and imprisoned by a military tribunal.
The DOJ and FBI are a part of the conspiracy to destroy America, and all their officials must go to prison, along with all the secretaries of all the government departments. The top officials of the Federal Reserve must also be treated as domestic enemies. And since Barack Obama is the puppet master of Biden, he too should be arrested, along with George Soros.
These are all domestic enemies who have committed themselves to the destruction of America from within, and the people who were trained and commissioned to deal with domestic and foreign enemies have been asleep at the wheel since January 2020.
Enoch111, July 3, 2022
We are already in the NWO. Since Covid-19 pandemic was used to control the entire world through lockdowns, mask wearing, fear, lies, we experienced this power like never before in history. Biden is pawn and all the rest of the countries are following suit. This global governance has been in the making for a long time. You can hear Walter Chronkite in a 1999 15-minute video, speak to the Council on Foreign Relations concerning this pill that Americas will have difficulty in swallowing. The gist of it: In order for this world to prosper, have peace and solve world hunger, the nations would have relinquish their sovereignties and become One. This Global Warming/Climate Change agreement signed by all nations is just that. It is a disguise for Global Governance.
So Americans have swallowed this pill whether they like it or not. We will be the last to go_ kicking and fighting. But no worries, God is Sovereign. It was all prophesied. Or do you think this is out of His control? We are going down. The Four Horseman are out of the stable. Buckle up! Do you think the Left/World Elites in charge will allow Republicans to regain Congress? 70% of America is dissatisfied with what Biden is doing with the economy, the border, Ukraine, etc. So if there was a fair election, Republicans would rack up and regain Congress, making Biden a lame duck president – he is already feable and lame. I suspect that something serious will happen in this country before November to cause such havoc as to corrupt the election AGAIN. War, EMP and blame it on the Russians, World Famine, a financial collapse and any one of them leading to Martial Law. Of course, with these Dominion computers, it is just a matter of pushing buttons, right? And then they have vote harvesting. But this time it won’t be about a half dozen states, it will happen to the whole country or planet.

America needs revival & to repent & turn back to God before it’s too late
shortangel, July 3, 2022
Nothing will stop the NWO….its pointless trying to rescue what is doomed. It is Bible prophesy undergoing fulfillment. Its a global event ….not national but international. There are only two sides in this final showdown, and by our own choices and conduct we show if we are for God’s Kingdom or man’s kingdoms under satan. Trying to prop up what is left of the devil’s world will be pointless. (1 John 5:19)
There is no such thing as a “Christian” nation, so “Christian nationalism” has no credibility, since Christianity is what you do….not what you say.
If a nation was to obey Christ, it would be finding ways to make peace, not war. (Matthew 5:5) He also told us to be “no part of the world” which includes its politics. (John 18:36; John 15:18-21)
Jesus said to “love your enemies and to pray for those who persecute you”….(Matthew 5:43-48) How can you do that with weapons?
It is one thing to call yourself a Christian, but another thing entirely to break God’s law on the sanctity of human life and support your government in unsanctioned bloodshed. When his chosen nation did that, God let their enemies defeat them and refused to hear their prayers. (Isaiah 1:15)
For those who think that there is such a thing as “just war”, think again. God will not bless any nation who breaks his laws.
Only those found “doing the will of the Father” will be saved. (Matthew 7:21-23) Their excuses will fall on deaf ears.
Peter told us what to expect….
“The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, 12 waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! 13 But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
Therefore, beloved, since you are waiting for these, be diligent to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace.” (2 Peter 3:9-14 ESV)
So in what condition will we be found?
Aunty Jane, July 3, 2022
The alternative to revival and America turning back to God is instead to be transformed into a God-less, borderless, Marxist, socialist, disarmed, Sodom and Gomorrah America under Satan. America is at a crossroad and time is running out! The battle for the very heart and soul of America continues. The struggle is real!
