God sent the plague upon Israel for turning to Baal-Peor, and 24,000 died.
Baal-Peor is near the border of Israel in the plains of Moab, what is today modern Jordon. That is where the nation Israel gathered before entering into the promised land. King Balak wanted the prophet Balaam to curse the Israelites. However, Balaam blessed them instead. Some of the people took Moabites’ wives for themselves and, in doing so, also adopted the pantheon of gods the Moabites worshiped. The story is recorded in Numbers. What this story portrays is exactly what is happening to America today in a smaller sense and to the world in a larger sense. That is that Satan seeks to destroy God’s people via the false gods where ever they reside; however, instead, God has a blessing for those who worship and obey Him. What makes this story so grievous is the depth of deprivation Israel (America) descended into so quickly. God became exceedingly angry with Israel (as He is with America) and told Moses to kill the leaders that had incited the people to worship the Moabite gods by having them impaled. Twenty-four-thousand died by sword and pestilence before God relented.
The Bible says pestilence is the sword of God and is one of His weapons of indignation. God has given us His law, the Ten Commandments. He has made a covenant with those who chose, worship, honor and obey Him. He promises that He will be our God and we shall be His people. This is the everlasting covenant. If we obey His Law: “by which a man, if he obeys, will live” and pursue righteousness, He will bless us in every way. However, if we disobey and go our own way, and worship the false idols then He has a penalty in store for us.
Read what God says will happen to those who disobey:
“Lev 26:14–33 14 ‘But if you do not obey Me and do not carry out all these commandments, 15 if, instead, you reject My statutes, and if your soul abhors My ordinances so as not to carry out all My commandments, and so break My covenant, 16 I, in turn, will do this to you: I will appoint over you a sudden terror, consumption and fever that shall waste away the eyes and cause the soul to pine away; also, you shall sow your seed uselessly, for your enemies shall eat it up. 17 ‘And I will set My face against you so that you shall be struck down before your enemies; and those who hate you shall rule over you, and you shall flee when no one is pursuing you. 18 ‘If also after these things, you do not obey Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. 19 ‘And I will also break down your pride of power; I will also make your sky like iron and your earth like bronze. 20 ‘And your strength shall be spent uselessly, for your land shall not yield its produce and the trees of the land shall not yield their fruit.
21 ‘If then, you act with hostility against Me and are unwilling to obey Me, I will increase the plague on you seven times according to your sins. 22 ‘And I will let loose among you the beasts of the field, which shall bereave you of your children and destroy your cattle and reduce your number so that your roads lie deserted.
23 ‘And if by these things you are not turned to Me, but act with hostility against Me, 24 then I will act with hostility against you; and I, even I, will strike you seven times for your sins. 25 ‘I will also bring upon you a sword which will execute vengeance for the covenant; and when you gather together into your cities, I will send pestilence among you, so that you shall be delivered into enemy hands. 26 ‘When I break your staff of bread, ten women will bake your bread in one oven, and they will bring back your bread in rationed amounts, so that you will eat and not be satisfied.”
Even though this law was written for Israel, it non-the-less applies to Christians in America and around the world, because we are the offspring of Israel, and in that sense, we are also the elect of God.
Here are the parallels between Israel and America regarding Baal-Peor.
Israel worshiped Baal. Baal is the god of materialism, wealth, and prosperity. Does the name “Wall Street” ring a bell (no pun intended). Biblical scholars’ asses that: “Continual struggle for survival no doubt led the Canaanites (Americans) to worship things that they felt would benefit them materially. Canaanite (American) worship centered on a cultic shrine or “high Place” (science, technology) where sacrifices were offered.
What are the sacrifices? Billions and billions of dollars spent by NASA for example, that otherwise could have been spent to improve the welfare of the poor and needy. Enormous amounts of money have been spent by NASA in the attempt to travel to Mars or possibly other planets, ignoring the explicit statement in the Bible that earth alone is the only planet God created to be inhabited. Man’s arrogance knows no bounds.
Billions have been granted by our “Leaders” to scientist, by the government for projects that benefit the elites of the world at the expense of the poor and needy. Billions of dollars have been given to Colleges and Universities, yet they are increasingly anti-religion and anti- God. They indeed mock The God of Creation and joyfully blaspheme His name all day long.
“After Israel (America) became a strong and organized nation, the influence of surrounding polytheism became a major challenge to their monotheism. God had warned them not to have other gods or to make images, but eventually, the idolatrous trend triumphed.; God had to allow the Israelites to be defeated by their enemies in order to chastise them for their betrayal of Him. Thus came about the fall of Samaria in 722 BC and of Jerusalem in 586 BC”. Is not there a lesson is this for America? Indeed His judgments are descending and will increase in intensity if we don’t repent.
Simultaneously the Israelites worshiped Ashtaroth the Goddess of immorality, pornography, witchcraft and sorcery.
Here are some facts about the state of morality in America today:
- As of 2019 there are approximately 1 million same sex marriages in the U.S. It is the law of the land as ruled by the U.S. Supreme Court. God’s law says marriage is between a man and women.
- Approximately 7% of the entire population identify as homosexual in one form or another.
- 67% of Americans say that homosexuality is morally acceptable. That’s two out of three.
- Every second 37 pornographic videos are created in the U.S.
- Every second $3,075.64 is being spent on pornography on the internet.
- Every second 372 people are typing the word “adult” into a search engine.
- About 200,000 Americans are classified as “porn addicts.”
- 40 million American people regularly visit porn sites.
- 35% of all internet downloads are related to pornography.
- One third of porn viewers are women.
I’m not even going to deal with fornication or adultery, except to say it is also pervasive and firmly entrenched in American society.
That brings me to the idol, Molech (also known as Chemosh). Human sacrifice (abortion) became a part of religious practice in Canaan. Other reprehensible practices of Canaanite religion were sacrifice of human adults and children, temple prostitution, mutilation of the human body, sorcery or divination. Israel sacrificed their children by passing them through the fire. They burned them to death. Sometimes they would kill the babies first before passing them thru the fire because they didn’t want them to suffer. How compassionate of them! In America we stick out our tongue at God and cover ourselves with tattoos. We glory in our depravity with reality shows, movies and television. We call it “entertainment.” Vile, vulgar and reprehensible language can be heard by children any time day or night on televisions. Our children can view soft porn, and in many cases, hard porn while being left at home by themselves, because the mother is out carousing with another adulterer.
Sense the Supreme Court passed Roe vs Wade. American “mothers” have murdered 62 million babies. Infants, helpless an innocent, prevented from even taking a breath of life or seeing the light of day. Why? Because they are deemed to be inconvenient. Is it any wonder why God is angry?
The Corona-virus was sent by God upon an unrepentant world. Say it isn’t so Nabi. God loves everybody. Why would a loving God kill people?
Let me clue you into a scriptural fact from the Bible. God uses viruses, among other things, to bring judgment. The term used in the Bible is plague or pestilence. He did it many times with Israel as an example, and now He is doing it to the world. It’s one of His weapons of indignation, and I can tell you He is fed up with our ingratitude towards Him. There are more coming. Not only pestilences but famine also and death by wild beast, and earthquakes.
In January 2020, people were going about their business, planning trips, vacations, going to work, making all sorts of plans. No one was giving God a second thought. Perhaps a few Christians relevantly speaking were giving thanks for His blessings. Blessings He bestows upon us every day: Everyone else, not so much. Then came the Corona-virus, and everything changed—all over the world. Now we’re sheltered in place, not working, twiddling our thumbs, and wondering when it will end. Not only that, but fear has also gripped many. Life has changed overnight, drastically. What does the future hold, we ask ourselves. It’s beginning to dawn on us that the future may not be what we hoped it would be. Will our children inherit an America, where dreams are possible? Because of the Corona-virus, we now realize how vulnerable our lives are. Because of the Corona-virus, we now realize that our wealth and health are not guaranteed. Doesn’t matter who you are, does it?
And you know what else? Except for President Trump, not one leader anywhere in the world called for a day of prayer. And only one spiritual leader, Ruth Graham Lutz, confessed the sins of America, publically, and took responsibility and asked God for His Mercy and help on behalf of the nation. God bless the President and Ruth Graham Lutz.
Well, I have some very bad news for the people of the world. It’s going to get a lot worse. What God has done is He has let the world know that they need Him. However, unless a person repents of sin, humbles himself, and turns to Him, acknowledges Him, give Him Praise and Glory, He is not going to relent. Instead, His judgments are coming. Jesus said, because you are neither hot nor cold, I will spew you out of my mouth. Do you think He needs us? I tell you no, but we sure as hell need Him.
There are only a few years left for the world to repent. And you know what? It’s not going to. Metaphorically speaking, the train has already gone over the cliff and is falling to the bottom where it will be smashed to smithereens. Because like disasters that have happened before, man’s response has always been, we will rebuild. We will not let this defeat us. We will come out of this stronger than before, etc., etc., etc. They do not recognize that it is God who brought the disaster to get them to turn from their way. And that is proclaimed by those who believe in the God of the Bible. All others are idolaters. They do not believe in the one and only God. Moreover, If your one of them, God is your enemy and not your Savior, the Bible says.
Sometimes, indeed most of the time, Satan is the one who is causing the disaster. God, in His mercy toward us, takes the disaster that Satan caused and turns it for our good. In the Bible, there are many disasters recorded that God has wrought upon man for the purpose of punishment. In other instances, to discipline us. And finally, in some cases, to wipe us out for our wickedness and unrighteousness. Yes, wipe us out! Until now, however, there was always the future to look forward too. We can get through this, we say to ourselves, you have got to believe. Yeah, right, believe in what? Indeed, not God—but ourselves.
9-11 came, and the world changed. Indeed, America changed, but instead of recognizing that God was angry with us, why? Think of the number of abortions, homosexuality, same-sex marriage, immorality run rampant, our leaders and press call good evil and evil good. The very ones charged with telling us the truth, and what was our response? Not repentance and calling on God to have mercy on us, but we said, we will rebuild, we’ll put up an even taller building than those knocked down. Humanity does not know how to repent!
We should be humbling ourselves. We should be begging God to forgive us for our ingratitude, arrogance, selfishness, and self-serving narcissism. We have shown a total disregard of love for Him, demonstrated by the lack of love towards our fellow human beings. We demonstrate and harbor hate against those that speak a different language, or have a different skin color than us, or perhaps most of all, those who have a different political views or persuasions different from our own. Our hypocrisy knows no bounds.
God has told us so many times and in so many ways, “Listen to My voice.” “Keep My words and obey them, that by doing so, a man will live. Come, let us reason together.” He implores. Is that so difficult a task in our lives? Jesus said: “My load is light, and my yoke is easy.” “Come unto me all you who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest.” Is that not all of us?
Right now, at this time in history, humankind has given the finger into the face of God! Not only do we not fear Him, but we also refuse to even acknowledge Him! ALMIGHTY GOD no less, THE CREATOR AND SUSTAINER OF LIFE! What have we done?
We hear celebrities like Dolly Parton Twitter: “don’t be too scared, it’s going to be all right.” Really, Dolly, you with your humongous breast that you had implanted so you could entice and tease men towards fornication and immorality. You who played a madam in a movie about prostitution. You who have fornicated with many men, married and unmarried. You think it going to be all right! The problem you have like most of Americans is that you don’t have a clue about the Holiness of God Almighty. You may be a Christian, whether you are or not is not for me to judge, God knows, but I can tell you with all certainty, if you are, you will be purged, purified and made pure by God because right now you are like most of American Christians who only give lip service and deny His power. Your testing has come.
God has had enough! He is calling one last time. Turn away from your sin and unrighteousness. Call upon ME, and I will give you eternal life. I died for you! If you remain insolent, stubborn, and rebellious, you are going to die in your unbelief. I Jesus Christ, the Creator, am going to destroy this world and all of its unrighteousness. I am coming back to set up MY Kingdom, those that believe in ME I will keep from my wrath, but all others will be gathered up and thrown into MY winepress, a river of their blood will be poured out and flow upon the earth.
I am His prophet, and I’m telling you the time is short. Days are fast approaching where we will wish for the days of the Coronavirus. Famine and earthquakes are going to follow on top of this Pandemic.
Man is not going to repent. America may never recover from this fall. If it does it will be short lived.
However, there is going to be one last revival, and then the end will come.
Jesus has given me a message; I have written it in my book “UNPREPARED” soon to be released. It explains all that is coming and when. The world is moving towards the Great Tribulation. Turn now while you can because a great deception is happening. Indeed, it is already underway!
