Ramming The Ten Commandments: A Prophetic Picture Of America

It was the act of only one man who drove his vehicle into a Ten Commandments monument in Arkansas, but it reflected the sentiments of a growing number of Americans: “We do not want the Ten Commandments in our midst, nor do we want the God of the Ten Commandments in our midst.”
In that sense, the destructive act of this individual reflected the attitude of tens of millions of Americans. This is not simply a decreased interest in the Bible and the God of the Bible. This is outright rebellion.
Enough with God’s laws and standards. Enough with His moral principles. Enough with His prohibitions of idolatry and adultery and murder.
We will do what we want to do, when we want to do it, and no law – or God – will tell us otherwise.
The America we want must have no connection to its Judeo-Christian roots, no connection to the moral values of many of its Founders, no connection to the Scriptures which so influenced their thinking.
We will worship created things more than the Creator, and we will be full of covetousness and greed. We want our idolatry.
We will have sex with whomever we want to, whenever we want to, in any combination and sequence. And if we so desire, we will call these relationships “marriage,” and neither God nor man will tell us anything different. We want our adultery.
We will kill our babies in the womb if we so choose, and anyone who defies our wishes will be trampled underfoot with derision and scorn. We want our murder.
Yes, we will do what we want to do when we want to do it. We declare ourselves free.
Ironically, the man in question, Michael Tate Reed, who livestreamed on Facebook as he drove his vehicle onto the Arkansas statehouse lawn, allegedly yelled “Freedom!” as he crashed into the Ten Commandments monument less than 24 hours after it was erected. (He was previously charged with a similar attack on a Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma in 2014.)
The reality is, the more we depart from God’s laws, the more we find ourselves in bondage, far less free than we were before. Rather than shouting “Freedom!”, Reed should have shouted, “Bondage! Self-destruction! Captivity! Decline!”
Reed claimed that such monuments are a violation of the separation of church and state, a phrase not found in the Constitution (something that seems to have escaped Justice Sotamayor this week) and, more importantly, a phrase that meant the opposite of what Reed envisions.
In truth, the so-called wall of separation was there to keep the State out of the Church, not the Church out of the State. And the idea that having a public Ten Commandments display would be a violation of American principles would be totally foreign to our Founders….
Remember Jonathan Cahn and The Harbinger? If you aren’t familiar with that, I’ve dedicated an entire category on my blog to some of the details. Look on the right-hand side of this post and click on #6 and 7 to learn more.
I believe that the amazing election of Donald Trump to the U.S. Presidency is a sign that God is extending America’s warning period. He is demonstrating His grace on behalf of all those who prayed fervently for more time to reach souls for His kingdom BEFORE the end times events described by Jesus in Matthew 24 and Revelation 6-7 come upon the world.
More to come on that, my friends!
Continue praying, stay alert, and KEEP WATCHING …
