See, the Lord’s hand is not so short that it cannot save, and His ear is not closed that it cannot hear. But your wrong-doings have kept you away from your God. Your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He does not hear. For your hands are sinful with blood, your fingers with wrong-doing, your lips have lied, and your tongue talks about sin. No one wants what is right and fair in court. And no one argues his cause with the truth. They trust in what is false, and speak lies. They plan to make trouble and do what is sinful. They bring young ones from the eggs of deadly snakes and make traps as a spider does. He who eats of their eggs dies, and a snake comes out of the egg that is crushed. Clothing cannot be made from the work of the spider, so they cannot cover themselves with what they make. Their works are works of sin. They hurt others with their hands. And they are quick to sin and to kill people who are not guilty. Their thoughts are thoughts of sin. Wherever they go, they destroy and cause suffering. They know nothing about peace, and there is nothing fair in their paths. Their roads are not straight. Whoever walks on them does not know peace. —Isaiah 58:1-8


“Shout as loud as you can and don’t stop. Shout like a trumpet! Tell the people what they did wrong. Tell the family of Jacob about their sins. They still come every day to worship me, acting as if they want to learn my ways. They pretend to be a nation that lives right and obeys the commands of their God. They ask me to judge them fairly. They want their God to be near them.

They say, “We fast to show honor to you. Why don’t you see us? We starve our bodies to show honor to you. Why don’t you notice us?”

But God says, “You do things to please yourselves on those special days of fasting. And you punish your servants, not your own bodies. You are hungry, but not for food. You are hungry for arguing and fighting, not for bread. You are hungry to hit people with your evil hands. This is not the way to fast if you want your prayers to be heard in heaven! Do you think I want to see people punish their bodies on those days of fasting? Do you think I want people to look sad and bow their heads like dead plants? Do you think I want people to wear mourning clothes and sit in ashes to show their sadness? That is what you do on your days of fasting (Sunday worship and religious holidays).

Do you think that is what the LORD wants?”


Each day that I pick up the local newspaper I find it to be replete with the sick details - and fully demented chronicles’ - highlighting the full national measure and extent of moral decay in the United States; including the putrefaction of the values of the youth, along with a full blown decomposition of the moral fabric of the collective peoples of this nation.

A recent example account story article summated the conspicuously and outrageously reprehensible saga of the rape, humiliation, and ultimate suicide of a young sixteen year old girl who - at a so-called friend’s party - became inebriated to the point of a loss of consciousness, and in such a state of being was passed around sexually by three sixteen year old morally dirty and ethically filthily hounds, ostensibly her friends, each of whom were quite possibly the apple of their father’s eye and a receiver of the fawning adoration of equally ignorant mothers. These criminal mongrels used this unconscious girl in the most vile sexual ways and recorded their depraved acts via cell phone cameras - later posting their prurient behaves to the internet where they were shared, and circulated for viewing, by their equally (absent from the party) psychotically disposed peers.

This pitiable, miserable, and wretched girl hanged herself; it was the only way that she knew to escape the ubiquitous humiliation that confronted her among so-called friends and associates.


Although there is ample attribute responsibility present to affix the fault and the blame, it must be stressed that the reason for such an insensate lack of principles of right and wrong and a seeming universal prevalent nonconformance to standards of righteous behavior is a complete lawlessness by all of society, inclusive of the entirety of the people as a whole.

This lawlessness descends downward from the nation's leaders; including the president, the Congress and the courts; all of which propagate, legislate, and uphold iniquitous practices and commissions. Under this hierarchy rests a people equally without law or control. The entirety of the afore enumerated government collective, and of the whole of the people, cavalierly ignore God's Word in regard to authoritative declarations recorded in the only Holy Book of merit – the Holy Bible. Despite what the president or the politically correct heathen of this nation contend; the Bible is the sole expositor of truth as expressed by the Sovereign God of the Universe.

The liberal progressives must bear the major portion of the on-going termination and near extinction of moral excellence and decency in manners and conduct in this nation; these cretins have succeeded magnificently, and without question, with their kindergarten thru college socialist/progressive indoctrination endeavors, and by their social government mandated integrated pedagogy of Mephistophelean social deviancy. The second major failure, and the most troubling and worrisome, is that of the parents of the nation; who are too stupidly caught up with own decadent lives to push back against such an inimical neo communist stratagem.

Too be sure such a coordinated contrivance has been very useful to the socialists and has spelled the death knell for a once great Constitutional Republic. Their secular humanistic agenda has corrupted the political process, debauched the judiciary, and effectively effaced parental authority. The greatest of the totalitarian tyrants in all of history were not more successful, or effective, with such a demonically controlled agenda.

All of the foregoing has contributed to a corrupted and ignorant youth of ultra pliable minds and has helped to transition them into flagrantly culturally corrupted future adults. This pending progressive victory will culminate in complete success of the secular liberal agenda….and the absolute end to this nation; it is just a matter of a short amount of time. This nation is dead, it just refuses to fall over and be buried as it should be, given that it is no longer useful to any righteous intent or purpose.


It is apparent that the Apostle Paul delivered this message of 2 Timothy to fulfill his responsibility as a leader in the church. This being the case it is evident that his message was for the Church, and not as an admonition to the heathen. The remonstration is meant for the heathen, but the message of the Church must be the gospel, If the truth is preached and the heathen recognize the Church as a true authority under God then perhaps those who love the world above the Sovereign God will recognize that eternal condemnation is at their doorstep and repent of their demonically induced spirit and drink of the Living Waters provided by our Savior the Lord Jesus Christ. To do so requires repentance of the filthiness and wanton wickedness that encompasses the entirety of this once blessed nation.

Since Paul’s day wickedness has expanded and proliferated to the point that it consumes the whole world, this to the point that the living God must deal with it as He was forced to do in the days of Noah. Certainly He cannot abide the demonically induced doctrine of secular humanism that the people of the United States, and other nations, embrace in place of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Every Christian is a true minister of Jesus Christ, so every Christian can benefit from this epistle, not just church leaders. A person can become a minister of God's truth only when the Head of the church (Jesus Christ) bestows a "gift" on him or her through the Holy Spirit. This is the primary qualification for ministry. Some leaders have great gifts, others have lesser gifts, but all have at least one gift. These gifts are abilities for service that God gives us.

Satan is already waging war against all things holy. His rebellion is growing. It will not get better! Conditions and events, particularly with Israel and the United States, will continually to grow significantly, and such points to His return, sooner than later! However, Christ's spiritual reign is already touching earth today in the hearts of believers.

Faithful followers of Christ will not be exposed to the removal of the sustaining work of the Holy Spirit from this earth and Satan’s full fury.

Fellow Christians fulfill your obligation as a minister of the Lord Jesus Christ and reap the rewards bestowed by our Blessed Savior.

And all of God’s People say, Amen!
