My newly published booklet, A Prophetic Manifesto, is all about trumpeting a warning cry that our nation has passed the point of no return and that God is now in the process of withdrawing His protection, allowing us to implode.
In the booklet I point out that we have been following in the footsteps of ancient Judah. I provide many parallels, both positive and negative, and I conclude by declaring:
Like ancient Judah, our fate is sealed. Our collapse will be just as sudden and overwhelming. Why should God treat us any differently? We can be assured that He will not.
The second half of the manifesto focuses on the signs that clearly indicate that we are at the end of the Church Age. Based on those signs that God's Word tells us to watch for, I assert that Jesus is at the very gates of Heaven, waiting for His Father's command to return.
But is that message being urgently proclaimed from our pulpits? No! The Church is asleep. Pastors are more concerned with attending church growth conferences and trying to catch up with the latest fad in worship entertainment.
Even worse are those who mock the signs and scoff at the idea of the Lord's return anytime in the foreseeable future.
Meanwhile, our society continues to secularize and paganize at breathtaking speed, and true Christianity is coming under increasing attack.
Is there any hope for our nation? I do not think so. Our only hope is Jesus, and thus we have no hope, because our nation has rejected Him.
But there is, of course, individual hope for those of us who know Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and I conclude the manifesto by talking about that hope.
At our annual Bible conference the last weekend in June, we distributed the first copies of A Prophetic Manifesto.
A manifesto is a brief statement of principles, and that is a good description of our manifesto. It is only 40 pages long, and it contains a declaration of biblical principles concerning two issues: the fate of our nation and the return of Jesus.
The cover is stark in nature, printed in black and white, containing only the title and the name of the author. It is intended to set the tone for the hard-hitting message that the booklet contains.
The booklet is aimed primarily at pastors, calling them to a recognition of the terrible moral and spiritual condition of our nation. Its message is also designed to alert them to the fact that we are living on borrowed time and that they need to start preparing their congregations for the Lord's imminent return.
In the introduction of the booklet, I pointed out that it is titled, "A Prophetic Manifesto," not "A Prophecy Manifesto," and I stated that the difference is important. My purpose was not to present a prophecy given to me by God. I have no such prophecy. Rather, my purpose was to share some sobering truths that are based on prophecies which God gave to biblical prophets thousands of years ago. They are also based on principles the Bible reveals about how God deals with nations. The Manifesto is a shout of warning to America and its pastors.
Please consider giving a copy to your church pastor. Copies are available through our online resource center.
