The Antichrist Spirit of Judas
July 14, 2011
It is moral decadence, which takes empires down, but it is the antichrist spirit of Judas, which will take America down as it did Israel, in her rejection of Jesus. It is the antichrist spirit, which will cause America to cross back over and return to being just another member of the religious nations, whence she came.
When the truth departs from among God’s people, the devil enters in like a flood and sets up his own camp within what was God’s camp. The moment the Bible disappeared from the heart of the nation – from the schoolroom, the courtroom and the government, the three departments, which determine the course of the nation – then the nation herself was set up to become like Judas. In the end, she will commit suicide for her dastardly deed against the Lord Jesus Christ.
America has chosen to conspire by doing her Judas thing with the religious, empirical nations of the world. The power of God found in her, because her finger had reached out to touch His finger, will depart from her; she will look to the union of nations for her strength, rather than to God, but no power will be found in it.
God tells us clearly just how pathetic the United Nations are, when it comes to looking to this organization for strength or decision-making.
Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket, and are counted as the small dust on the balance; look, He lifts up the isles as a very little thing. And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor its beasts sufficient for a burnt offering. All nations before Him are as nothing, and they are counted by Him less than nothing and worthless (Isaiah 40:15-17).
Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless. Scarcely shall they be planted, scarcely shall they be sown, scarcely shall their stock take root in the earth, when He will also blow on them, and they will wither, and the whirlwind will take them away like stubble.
“To whom then will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal?” says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things, who brings out their host by number; He calls them all by name, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power; not one is missing. Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel: “My way is hidden from the Lord, and my just claim is passed over by my God”? Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. There is no searching of His understanding. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:21-31).
How is it that America cannot see history repeating itself? History is His story and it begins with a Judas and ends with a Judas, who has always been lurking within the camp of God. The washed, clean apostles, washed by the Word of God, are the Lord’s chosen antidote to the Judas religious spirit of self-destruction. This is the reason for Satan wanting the Word and the Law of God removed from the three departments, which are determining the direction America will take.
What Obama doesn’t accomplish in this area, the United Nations will complete, if given the opportunity. It is just awaiting America’s complete economic breakdown, to step in and destroy her autonomy and right to self-government without any interference from any union of nations with an entirely different foundation for government.
Moral decadence is the tool for accomplishing victory for the devil. He appeals to the flesh of those not washed clean and led by the Spirit. The lines of demarcation between the two are becoming sharply defined as Jesus washes His church clean just before His return. She has been in a tomb built by religion for a long period of time, but she is about to awaken to the kiss of her prince and return from her sleep to become His witness and His bride. He is about to claim the victory He had on the cross.
Is He subject to our weaknesses, the same One who could deliver us from our own suicidal tendencies? Isaiah answers this question with a question: Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, measured heaven with a span and calculated the dust of the earth in a measure? Weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance? Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord, or as His counselor has taught Him? With whom did He take counsel, and who instructed Him, and taught Him in the path of justice? Who taught Him knowledge, and showed Him the way of understanding (Isaiah 40:12-14)?
Will He allow foreign nations to rule His people? He allows it only when His people choose the broad road that leads back to the foreign nations from which He has taken them, rejecting His truth for their religion. And what is it they so desire? Is it not the workmanship of the empires made up of the metal workers of Satan, who war continually among themselves for control over each other?
To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare to Him? The workman molds a graven image, the goldsmith overspreads it with gold, and the silversmith casts silver chains. Whoever is too impoverished for such a contribution chooses a tree that will not rot; he seeks for himself a skillful workman to prepare a carved image that will not totter (Isaiah 40:18-20).
We are in scary times, and it would appear all is lost to the nations, as we reject Jesus’ truth for the tyrants’ lies of religion. But the Lord is just waiting until the gentiles come to the time of their religious fullness of a One World Order. At the same time, all, who are His and safely separated into the house of Israel, will cross over the waters on the path leading to the kingdom, as the last iron empire goes down as quickly as the Titanic disappeared into the sea.
Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, and His arm shall rule for Him; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him. He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and gently lead those (see the woman of Revelation, chapter 12) who are with young (Isaiah 40:10-11).
Then He shall return to rule with a rod of iron in a perfect government, in perfect justice and with the teaching of perfect truth, without any religion to compromise His Way. And His kingdom shall come on earth as it is in heaven.
