The Handwriting is on the Wall

​NOTRE DAME: AN OMEN

“The symbolism of the burning of Notre Dame Cathedral, the most renowned building in Western civilization, the iconic symbol of Western Christendom, is hard to miss. 

It is as if God Himself wanted to warn us in the most unmistakable way that Western Christianity is burning — and with it, Western civilization. Every major Western (and one major non-Western) social and intellectual force has conspired to rid Europe of Christianity and the civilization it produced. 

Within the Western world, the French Enlightenment — the intellectual basis of the French Revolution and the modern West — sought to replace Christianity, and religion in general, with secularism rooted in reason. No God, Bible, or Ten Commandments is necessary for morality or meaning: reason (and science) will replace them.” Dennis Prager   

THE HANDWRITING IS ON THE WALL FOR AMERICA
Daniel 5:5 “…the fingers of a man’s hand appeared and wrote opposite the lampstand on the plaster of the wall of the king’s palace, and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote.” 

THREE CONDITIONS POINT TO DANGER 
· CULTURAL AMNESIA [Erase Everything] 

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” George Orwell“Ours may become the first civilization destroyed, not by the power of our enemies, but by the ignorance of our teachers and the dangerous nonsense they are teaching our children. In an age of artificial intelligence, they are creating artificial stupidity.” -Thomas Sowell

·      ECONOMIC DERANGEMENT [Presumption] 
·      SPIRITUAL ILLUSION [Deception] 

“I’m not bothered by the protests happening in LA. I’m bothered that California has decided to silence the church for nearly half a year and celebrate Portland. Churches will start soon. Will lose many members calling us reckless but rebuild with newer, less consumer, more resilient people.” Matthew Barnett (Twitter 7.26.20) 

GODS PROPHET IS WAITING
Daniel 5:11-12 “There is a man in your kingdom in whom is the Spirit of the Holy God. And in the days of your father, light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, were found in him; and King Nebuchadnezzar your father—your father the king—made him chief of the magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers. Inasmuch as an excellent spirit, knowledge, understanding, interpreting dreams, solving riddles, and explaining enigmas were found in this Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar, now let Daniel be called, and he will give the interpretation.” 

Daniel 5:24-28 “Then the fingers of the hand were sent from Him, and this writing was written.“And this is the inscription that was written:MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

This is the interpretation of each word. MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it;  TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting;  PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.”  

FAVOR FOLLOWS FAITHFULNESS Daniel 5:29 “Then Belshazzar gave the command, and they clothed Daniel with purple and put a chain of gold around his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.” [Insert video of youth here]

Psalm 105:8 “[God] remembers His covenant forever, the word which He commanded, for a thousand generations.” 1 Chronicles 16:14-15 “He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth. Remember His covenant forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations” Deuteronomy 7:9 “Know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.” 

The Blessing (song)  

May His favor be upon you
And a thousand generations
Your family and your children
And their children, and their children
May His favor be upon you
And a thousand generations
And your family and your children
And their children
