America has been blessed with remarkable freedom for more than two centuries. But now -- as multitudes reject God's Word, justify immorality, laugh at evil, and embrace depravity -- the protective walls of justice and integrity are fast eroding. In their place, we see a rising tower of global tyranny.

Americans are no longer safe from the persecution that has tested the faith of Christians through the centuries. In fact, God warns us that the global battle against Biblical Truth will surely intensify. While we don't know His timing, He tells us to be alert -- always ready to follow His way, trust His grace, and demonstrate His strength -- no matter how fierce the foe.

"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." Ephesians 6:12-18

This chart is merely my prayerful attempt to list His Scriptures in the order He shows us. While God's Word is unchanging and totally worthy of our trust, my understanding is incomplete. I don't know His timing beyond what He has told us in His Word, but I believe He wants us to take His warnings and revelations to heart. As Paul wrote, "Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known." 1 Cor. 13:12


BE ALERT TO THE "SIGNS OF OUR TIMES" 

         "Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near." Revelation 1:2-4

       “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they ...did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be." Matthew 24:36-39
