the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the horns of the golden altar
which is before God, one saying to the sixth angel that had the trumpet, Loose
the four angels that are bound at the great river Euphrates. And the four
angels were loosed, that had be prepared for the hour and day and month and
year, that they should kill the third part of men. And the number of the armies
of the horsemen was twice ten thousand times ten thousand: I heard the number
of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them,
having breastplates as of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone: and the heads
of the horses are as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths proceeded fire
and smoke and brimstone. By these three plagues was the third part of men
killed, by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone, which proceeded out of
their mouths. (Rev. 9:13â€‘18)
It is clearly
indicated by prophecy that the United States is not directly involved in the
battle of Armageddon. Why is this so, since the United States has a deployment
of forces throughout the world. One possible reason is a decision by the
leadership of the United States not to become involved in the battle of
Armageddon. The choice is ours which possibility will become reality.
It was predictable from prophecy that
the U.S.S.R. would collapse, freeing America from N.A.T.O. troop obligations.
It was also predictable that the 4th largest army in the world (Iraq
under Saddam Hussein) would be removed from being in the path of the 200,000,000
horseman of the â€˜kings from the rising of the sunâ€™, who cross the Euphrates.
It is my hope
that the leadership of the United States will be enlightened enough that, when
the Antichrist rises to power, they will withdraw all Americans from the countries
under his control. I hope also that the immigration laws will be set aside for
the persecuted Jews and Christians who flee the Antichrist, although no one
with his mark should be admitted.
needed in America is not a religion-instigated program of legislated morality:
that is treating the symptoms and ignoring the disease. What is needed today is
a turn away from empty materialism and even more so away from dead
religion to love the living Christ.
