At the beginning of each January, I pause to take a look back over the previous year. My annual “Prophetic Year in Review” examines some of the major developments of the past year that I feel were significant in the light of Bible prophecy.
This week, I’ll discuss some of the prophetic implications of America’s continuing financial nosedive. The current administration tries to put a happy face on the dismal prospects. Europe is convulsing under impossible debt and welfare burdens. This, coupled with the almost suffocating debt America has accumulated, guarantees the crescendo for some sort of global solution to this crisis.
I believe that one of the greatest roadblocks to the ascension of a one-world government this far has been the United States. And the one American institution that has guaranteed this restraint is our extraordinary Constitution. I believe God had a hand in the development of this document, in part, to inhibit the rise of a global government.
But the battle against the Constitution is in full fury now. As we near the conclusion of the “time of the gentiles,” I feel America must decline in global significance. That cannot happen until our Constitution, and thus our individual rights and freedoms, are severely curtailed by our enemies, foreign and domestic.
We are seeing that happen daily in a relentless and determined manner.
Friends, we are living in frustrating and frightening, but ultimately exciting times. Though it grieves me to see our great nation stumble toward obscurity, I know that it’s a necessary step toward something even greater that lurks just around the corner — as the ancient prophets predicted. That means time is short. Make sure you’re ready to go when Jesus Christ returns to receive His bride unto Himself. Accept and embrace the free gift of pardon that He died to purchase for you.
I also want to thank you once again for your faithful support of “The Hal Lindsey Report” during 2010. May God’s richest blessings be yours in 2011 and may God continue to bless our beloved America in the darkening days ahead.
Have a blessed New Year!
