When fighting the enemy at night we would often call supporting artillery to light up the battlefield so we could better see to fight. The enemy liked to sneak up on us in the dark, and get in to close to our defensive lines for us to use our heavily fire power against him without damage to ourselves. With illumination we could keep him at a distance. Before coming to Christ I had no idea of the supernatural forces aligned against us because I did not have spiritual eyes to see or spiritual ears to hear. Isaiah 42:18 and 19 is one of many places talking about spiritual blindness which is fatal. We need to be able to illuminate the situation. II Corinthians 4:4 is one of the scariest verses in the bible: “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, least the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” I am amazed for instance at the number of those who confess Christ as their Savior who can’t see what is coming. Why can’t they see? Because they have no interest in bible prophecy which accurately foretells coming history! As the Second Coming draws near they live as if they have all the time they need to get right with the LORD. In Matthew 16:2-3 Jesus has a warning for such blindness. Read the scriptures daily for a third of scripture has to do with prophecy. Illuminate the times you live in.


Merriam Webster dictionary defines, integrity, this way: firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values: Incorruptibility.” Incorruptibility? We see corruption everywhere in these end times we live in. Some common synonyms of this vital leadership trait are: character, decency, goodness, uprightness and honesty, One’s moral disposition has everything to do with his decision making. In a military organization and democratic society where men are subject to authority and a chain of command, men must be able to depend upon each other and on orders from those in authority over them. They must respect their leaders to be able to whole heartedly following difficult orders putting them in harm’s way. There must be an atmosphere of trust and confidence for a military unit to properly function. Fear of man will not ultimately hold an organization or society together. Only fear of God can hold things together. Where this is not the case: men will not be able to depend on each other’s word. Things will fall apart in difficult circumstances. Our national news is full of “promises and smooth talk” by the talking heads as our military force and economy is deliberately being disassembled before the eyes of those not in deception. Promises are many. Actual accomplishments are few! When measured against former standards that the more able leaders of yesterday were held to, we see almost no public responsibility or accountability for the increasing trend of failure after failure happening today. This important word: integrity, is used eighteen times in the Bible. Its common synonyms are used even more. I encourage the reader to study the biblical use of this word. See how God deals with men who have it, and with those who don’t. The opposite of this word (antonym) is dishonesty! We now living in an increasing culture of lies. Trust and confidence among American soldiers has been one of the critical reasons the American military has been the master of the battlefield in past wars. This critical quality is now being deliberately undercut as increasingly secular leadership hates our past moral under pinning, a belief in Jesus Christ. All religions are not equal as national accomplishment clearly shows. Islam now gets more respect than Christianity among our leaders. Anyone who seriously studies Islam knows it is the polar opposite of Christianity. Our national experiment in political correctness will not end well for our nation. My advice? Use spiritual discernment to dodge the trouble manifesting all around us. Look to the God who put Psalm 91 in the Holy Bible. That God is the only one with the supernatural integrity to get us through the difficulties ahead.


When trained soldiers hear this term it brings to mind knowledge of the enemy’s plans that will be helpful in stopping an enemy attack and initiating a successful counter-attack. There is always a major effort by a good military organization to gather useful intelligence that will bring effective results, and prevent the enemy from doing the same. Without good intelligence military operations no matter how well executed are just a shot in the dark. For a military force to gain the upper hand against their enemy they must know more about the enemy’s plans than the enemy knows about ours. Keeping the enemy deceived is critical to success. When one joins the army of God does a believer get wisdom and knowledge from God so he can effectively withstand the attacks of our enemies? The answer is a very definite yes. This “intelligence” comes in the form of the written word of God where God has told the end from the beginning. Also there is a direct word from God in the form of words of knowledge, dreams, visions, (prophecy). God said through His prophet, Hosea 4:6: “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” Why are God’s people so often unprepared when disaster strikes? Because many don’t actively seek God, or read His Word! They do not have “eyes to see or ears to hear.” (spiritual discernment) Our God is a good God. He doesn’t keep His children in the dark to what is coming. When we are doing wrong, if we will only seek His guidance and repent when we are in sin, He will show us the way out of our troubles
(Psalm 50:14). William Penn said this: “Men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by Tyrants.” This is true at the individual level, and equally so at the national level. Our nation has turned its back on the God of our forefathers. We are under national judgment. The majority seem to be in spiritual deception and apostasy. Insanity is doing the same things over and over with no success while continuing to expect good results. The Bible tells us we must be born again (John 3:3,6) and seek His face. Have you truly turned to God for help? If not don’t expect things to get better for you until you start using the intelligence he has given you to lead a righteous life where blessings follow. Life without effective intelligence is folly according to God’s holy word.


A military operation to conquer, liberate or reestablish control over territory held by an enemy. This particular term is found once in scripture though such operations are mentioned in quite a few Bible passages. The terms certainly describes the flood of illegal immigrants crossing our southern border. For it provides cover for many ne’er do wells who are up to no good. An invasion was described by George Washington in a prophetic vision he had that took place during a time of great discouragement while he was in prayer during the harsh winter at Valley Forge in 1776. Our future was in grave doubt. The vision described three perils to come on America. The first was the American Revolution. It was a time of great desperation. The vision steeled Washington to endure on. The second great peril was the bloody American Civil War. I believe we are under going that third great peril right now. Part 1V, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution says this: “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union … protection … against invasion; and …  domestic violence.” This is not being accomplished effectively by the Federal Government. The present illegal crossing of our borders will destroy our way of life if not checked. It is substantially increasing domestic violence across America. The costs to our cities and states is immense. It is placing great strain on local infrastructures. Why is it not being stopped? Can there really be a hidden agenda? Is there really a plan to form a North American Union and bring all nations under the U.N.? The Bible does describe such a conspiracy. The great strain this invasion places on families, schools, social services, judicial systems, prisons and loss of jobs nationally is readily apparent to all who are not deceived. Why no change in direction? America is broken. I think now unfixable by anyone but God. The prophetic scriptures tell us the final outcome. Most people don’t want to hear biblical prophesy. We have turned our back on God as a nation. He has withdrawn his hand of protection. We have a forward deployed military strategy to keep our enemies from our shores. We have our military running around the world as a global police force but are being overcome from within. Our good jobs are exported overseas through international treaties. Our enemies grow stronger. We grow weaker internationally. Our government is not protecting our national borders, language or culture. The opposite is true. Significant numbers of elected politicians seem to have another agenda. Clearly an invasion is in progress. At this point only the Lord of Heaven and Earth can change things. Most Americans are blinded to this spiritual fact. The prophetic vision of General Washington shows that God sends a mighty angel to keep us from being completely overrun and destroyed by this invasion. Two thirds of that prophecy has come true. Will the rest come true? I don’t know! Many people don’t see America in end times Bible prophecy. Those who do suggest she is the “Mystery Babylon.” Her fate is sudden destruction. It is past time for us to call out to God for divine help for the nation. There is still time for each of us to repent for our personal sins, press in to him and look for the hope of his second coming. But little time remains. This Fall things do not look good if one listens to the secular experts. Before God completes his prophetic plan to take back this earth from the devil, there will be seven horrendous years of judgment.. God’s invasion from heaven at the end to take back the earth from Satan is described in Revelation 19: 11-21. You don’t want to be here during this terrible time. You want to be raptured away to heaven (John 14:1-3). Make sure your fate is secured. Surrender your life to Jesus Christ today.
