After that whole generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation grew up, who knew neither the LORD nor what he had done for Israel. Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD and served the Baals… He sold them to their enemies all around, whom they were no longer able to resist. Whenever Israel went out to fight, the hand of the LORD was against them to defeat them, just as he had sworn to them. (Judges 2:10-11, 14b-15 NIV)

Vanishing are the men and women of what has been called “America’s greatest generation”, the children of the great depression who fought and won World Wars on two fronts. Their children, “the baby boomers” (born 1946 to 1964), were beneficiaries of the peace and economic prosperity their fathers’ sacrifices bought.

With baby boomers now reaching retirement age, their sons and daughters are taking up positions of authority. Though notable exceptions exist, this generation (Generation X, born 1965-1982) and the one coming after (Generation Y, born 1977-2001), act as though they do not know the Lord.

A great evil has covered a land that God had once blessed. The greatest generation has grandchildren and great-grandchildren who reject righteousness. They flaunt their abominations in public. They follow other gods. This day, they are being sold out to enemies that surround them.

Muslims, under the guise of refugees, are being transported from the war-torn Middle East to the once proud capitals of Western democracy. It is reported America’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is helping Islam establish itself as the religion of the future. As one example, the present administration has directed DHS to grant temporary amnesty to 8000 Syrian Muslims.

Islam already has Europe in its grip. Next on their Global Caliphate list is North America. There is no doubt that Christians are the inevitable targets. A bloody murder of a French priest by ISIS-related terrorists is a prelude of things to come.  In its most recent edition, the English-language DABIQ, the magazine of the Islamic State, called on Christians to abandon Christianity claiming “Jesus was a slave to Allah”.

Islamization of the West is well underway, and the Lord is in the midst of it. He will punish America for rejecting his ways and following after the Baals. There will be terrible times in the last days. Do not fear, believing saint. “Those who stand firm to the end will be saved.”
