Seven Ominous Storms Facing America After the Coming Election

by | Oct 31, 2012 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

This past Sunday metaphorically pictured the present situation of our nation: Even with a terrible storm on the horizon (on the East Coast) many people were being (spiritually) lulled to sleep while fascinated with football games and entertainment through media.

This is eerily similar to more than 1,500 years ago, when the Roman emperor distracted the masses with gladiatorial games, traveling circuses, and distributed free bread against the backdrop of the looming Barbarian hordes about to invade, plunder and ravage their cities.

It is truly time for the whole church to wake up—to fast, pray and engage the culture as salt and light before night comes and no man can work!

These are some of the words I have been saying with more and more frequency the past several years to leaders I know in the body of Christ. Lately I have been feeling sympathetic to the way Jeremiah the prophet must have felt as he kept warning of the impending doom coming to his nation if it did not repent.

The following are seven of the storms I see coming:

1. The storm of divine judgment for not repealing legalized abortion
It has been said that “If God doesn’t judge America He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”

Numbers 35:33 says something chilling related to judging a nation for the sin of bloodletting: “You shall not pollute the land wherein you are; for blood it defiles the land; and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it. Defile not therefore the land, which you shall inhabit.”

Basically this passage is referring to the fact that when innocent blood is shed, the land wherein it is shed is unclean and defiled until the blood of the aggressor is shed for retribution. Applying this passage in the case of our nation: there is not one particular individual held responsible because abortion has been legal since the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. Thus it is a corporate, systemic sin!

If the math in this passage is to be taken literally, this means that if America does not repent of this hideous sin then for every single baby legally aborted God will require the blood of the same number of people, which is between 30-50 million Americans! (Those involved with illegal abortion before and after the 1973 ruling would be held responsible as individuals by God.)

Judgment in scripture for a nation seemed to come based on one generation. Read Luke 21:20-22 and Matthew 24:34 when Jesus predicted judgment on Israel for rejecting Him, which would be fulfilled within His generation. This was at least partially fulfilled in AD 70 when the Roman armies came and ransacked Jerusalem and destroyed the Holy Temple, about 37 years after His crucifixion. Also, the judgment on the nation of Israel for unbelief was to wander in the wilderness for one generation until all those over the age of 20 would die, which was about 38 to 40 (Num. 14:29-35).

I hate to think of what could start happening to the United States after the 40th anniversary of legalized abortion (in 2013) if we continue to perpetuate this systemic sin by pro-choice elected officials and elite liberals pushing this hideous act in the name of a woman’s right over her body (in spite of our new technology that proves the so-called fetus is a human life!).

I shudder to think of the extent of this judgment on the population if the prayers, actions and intervention of the body of Christ don’t go far enough to delay the fullness of the wrath of God for bloodletting! Perhaps the increase of natural disasters over the past 10 to 15 years like statewide droughts, wildfires, massive flooding, devastating tornadoes and hurricanes, in addition to terrorist attacks at home and abroad are merely a portent of more devastation to come if we don’t repent of the sin of abortion as a nation.

If Obama gets re-elected we can expect a perpetuation of this culture of death on our nation, especially since he will probably be able to pick the next two Supreme Court justices who would more than likely share his same liberal views. If Romney gets elected, he would need the guts to go against Democratic pressure to pick a so-called “moderate” and instead pick constitutionalist justices who will protect the values of life, liberty, justice, and the sanctity of life for all.

2. The storm of judgment for electing a president who favors same-sex marriage
If the American people actually re-elect the most radical pro-choice president in our history, along with the fact that he is the first standing president to support same-sex marriage, then it would be the ultimate act of snubbing our noses against God and His moral law! It would show the enormous extent in which we as a nation have hardened our hearts against our Creator and, as a result, are setting ourselves up to get the divine judgment we deserve to satisfy the justice of God!

Furthermore, our current president not only supports same-sex marriage but he has also forbidden the U.S. Justice Department from defending the Defense of Marriage Act, which gives federal protection to states that don’t want to legalize or recognize same-sex marriage.

If Romney gets elected, one of the first things he should do is order the Justice Department to legally enforce DOMA, or else we will continue down this slippery slope of redefining marriage and family.

3. The storm of the global economic crisis
Several weeks ago I asked a person involved in several high-level financial summits with some of the leading European economists why it is that Western European leaders want Obama to be reelected. I said, “Don’t they know that his economic policies will sink the American economy?” His answer startled me. He said something like, “Yes, they know Obama will sink the U.S. economy but this is precisely what they want. They believe the euro will eventually collapse and they believe their only hope is for the American dollar to also collapse, so there will be a need for a United States/Euro currency which they believe is their best hope for economic survival into the future”! If Obama gets re-elected, they believe things will unravel within the next few years because of his high-tax, debt financing philosophy!

During Obama’s first term in office our national public debt has increased from $10 trillion to $16 trillion. This is a greater increase in the debt by one president in one term than nearly every U.S. president from George Washington to George W. Bush. Furthermore, if re-elected it is estimated the public debt will go to $22 trillion! Plus, he has no answers or practical policies to deal with the looming crises related to Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and how to pay for his massive health plan better known as Obamacare except by repeating his impractical idea of taxing the rich.

If Romney gets elected he is going to have to do more than repeal Obamacare. He will have to work with Paul Ryan to come up with a long-term solution to the huge spending crisis related to funding an ever expanding Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and other tax-funded federal benefits. Also, it will take much wisdom to enact fiscal policy that enables him to both cut taxes to spur economic growth and increase military spending at the same time—something that may take much patience because it may take a few years for the economy to initially pick up after he changes our economic course.
