Ashamed as I watch a whore being stripped…

This morning, a friend sent me a news article that filled me with shame and disgust! I am a combat veteran of the 82nd Airborne Division, the All American as they were referred to during and after World War II. Today, the name makes me ill. Let me explain.

Over the last couple years it has become increasingly obvious that this nation is ripe for judgment. In recent months, I’ve commented on the state of our government and the obvious message to the world when we have a leader with dementia, a ‘vice leader’ that is an empty headed giggle twit, and leading the House is a an 80+ year old Jezebel hellbent on destroying what little remains. Without question, the writing is on the wall and we are being systematically stripped into utter nakedness before the world.

The top brass of our military demonstrated themselves to be buffoons with the debacle some call the Afghan withdrawal. LTC Sheller has admirably called out the Commandant of the Marine Corps and, instead of admission of error and mismanagement, his superiors, threw him in the brig to silence him. Cowards always hide from truth and accountability.

Then, today, I received the coldest of slaps in the face. RedState.com broke an exclusive story detailing that as the last flights were leaving Kabul Airbase, Major General Christopher Donahue, Commander of the 82nd Airborne Division, kicked 50-100 refugees off of a C-17 so he could load a war souvenir captured from the Taliban. I almost threw up. He has blood on his hands as those refugees will surely be put to death if they have not already.

But, there is a more important lesson here for those with ears…

In Scripture, every time God judged a nation, He always sent warnings, then He stripped them bare before the surrounding nations, then He brought the sword, famine, and other judgments.

Folks, we have already had the warnings. The sirens have been blaring and the red lights flashing for years. Nationally, we have been deaf and blind. Oh, there is a remnant paying attention, but even they refuse so much truth warning.

Isaiah 47 may well have been written to this generation and and this country, the United States of America. She is a whore and is being publicly stripped for display to the whole world before her justified judgment comes. Read this slowly! And, weep. Our time has come. The Judge is at the door. Brace yourself!

47 “Go down, sit in the dust,
    Virgin Daughter Babylon;
sit on the ground without a throne,
    queen city of the Babylonians.
No more will you be called
    tender or delicate.
Take millstones and grind flour;
    take off your veil.
Lift up your skirts, bare your legs,
    and wade through the streams.
Your nakedness will be exposed
    and your shame uncovered.
I will take vengeance;
    I will spare no one.

Our Redeemer—the Lord Almighty is his name—
    is the Holy One of Israel.

“Sit in silence, go into darkness,
    queen city of the Babylonians;
no more will you be called
    queen of kingdoms
.
I was angry with my people
    and desecrated my inheritance;
I gave them into your hand,
    and you showed them no mercy.
Even on the aged
    you laid a very heavy yoke.
You said, ‘I am forever—
    the eternal queen!’
But you did not consider these things
    or reflect on what might happen.

“Now then, listen, you lover of pleasure,
    lounging in your security
and saying to yourself,
    ‘I am, and there is none besides me.
I will never be a widow
    or suffer the loss of children.

Both of these will overtake you
    in a moment, on a single day:
    loss of children and widowhood.
They will come upon you in full measure,
    in spite of your many sorceries
    and all your potent spells.
10 You have trusted in your wickedness
    and have said, ‘No one sees me.

Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you
    when you say to yourself,
    ‘I am, and there is none besides me.’
11 Disaster will come upon you,
    and you will not know how to conjure it away.
A calamity will fall upon you
    that you cannot ward off with a ransom;
a catastrophe you cannot foresee
    will suddenly come upon you.

12 “Keep on, then, with your magic spells
    and with your many sorceries,
    which you have labored at since childhood.
Perhaps you will succeed,
    perhaps you will cause terror.
13 All the counsel you have received has only worn you out!
    Let your astrologers come forward,
those stargazers who make predictions month by month,
    let them save you from what is coming upon you.
14 Surely they are like stubble;
    the fire will burn them up.
They cannot even save themselves
    from the power of the flame.
These are not coals for warmth;
    this is not a fire to sit by.
15 That is all they are to you—
    these you have dealt with
    and labored with since childhood.
All of them go on in their error;
    there is not one that can save you.

Isaiah 47

I am ashamed of this country. I am ashamed of our leaders. I’m ashamed of almost everything I see and hear, these days.

May Yah have mercy on His people as we go through the fire!

    Cicero accurately “prophesied” that only a fifth column would bring down the Roman Empire.
    While the masses were entertained with bread and circus in the colosseum, the elites robed the storehouses, the army was dismantled from any capable leader. Then the destruction from within was sealed for her enemies to pounce on the remains like a vulture. Destroyed from within.
    Truly there is nothing new under the sun. We again learn from history that man does not or perhaps better stated refuses to learn from history. In this once great nation, the true puppet master lies in the shadows of power, hidden in plain sight. While people just refuse to see. Its citizens enjoy the bread and circus in her many colosseums without understanding that they have already been sold off. A cancer can only grow in a body when ignored by or invisible to the immune system, this cancer began a long time ago….
    “And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation. There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof. Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain. And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken. The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully. And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.”
    ‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭22:23-31‬ ‭

  3. Good word Pete!!
    I am convinced Yah had been incredibly patient with America. Primarily as a means to His ends. Unfortunately, many have mistaken His patience as favor. Few consider, the land of Israel was “The land of milk and honey” BEFORE the Israelites possessed it. I’m quite sure the Canaanites thought they were secure and could not be dispossessed.
    I believe the wise will see what’s at our doorstep and devise means to thrive in the midst of it. There is much this nation had been sowing and MUST reap. Yah will not be mocked.

    I saw the photos of those who clung desperately to the wings and landing gear of the plane as the last of them departed down the runway. It takes an act beyond utter desperation to believe one could survive such a feet.
    My heart wretched as they showed people being flung off like bugs in the wind. As cruel and heartless as that was, it was probably better than what those who were left on the ground got.
    May Yah have mercy on any who were left behind.
    You’ve said what I’ve been saying for years now.
    As a nation we are doomed to judgement and wrath that we have brought upon ourselves.
    Babylon the great is falling.
