The "Falling Away" Having Swept Across Europe Is Now Plaguing America

God's word tells us that the rise of the Anti-Christ, as ruler of the New World Order, for seven years of Tribulation, will be preceded by a "falling away" of "professing" believers in Christ. The falling away will end with the Rapture when Christ comes, in the air, and receives his true believers into heaven. Then the seven years of Tribulation will be followed by the second phase of Christ's  Second Coming to establish His 1000 year Millennial Kingdom on earth. The "falling away", in the U.S., began slowly, at first, during my generation and has steadily picked up speed and has now reached rapid descent into the abyss of unbelief. The Next page on God's calendar reveals "that man of sin, the son of perdition" who passes himself off as the Son of God, Jesus Christ, Messiah. He is, however, the Anti-Christ, Satan's counterfeit of Christ. Here is pertinent scripture pointing like the finger of God at these unfolding events. See, at the bottom, the latest Pew Poll of developing unbelief in America.

"Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at handLet no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." 2 Thess. 2:1-4

The United States has been the strongest last bastion of Christian believers in the world. Russia has long gone the way of the world and Europe is more recently gone the same route. Now, in these last years, our own country is following suite ... in unbelief..... "falling away" from the faith of the Apostles and our Founding Fathers.

Number of Americans 

'Certain' About God 

Falls to 63 Percent

The proportion of Americans who say they are "absolutely certain" God exists has dropped sharply from 71 percent to less than two thirds, the Pew Research Center said Tuesday.
The share of US adults who say they believe in God declined from 92 to 89 percent over the same period, from 2007 to 2014, but is still remarkably high compared to other developed countries.
The percentage of Americans who say they pray every day, attend regular services and consider religion very important have also clocked small, but significant declines, the research center said.
The vast majority of Americans, 77 percent of adults, continue to identify with some religious faith, but a growing number are unaffiliated to a particular group, the study found.
Younger Americans are also less religious than their elders. For example, four in 10 of the youngest Millennials say they pray every day, compared to six in 10 Baby Boomers. 

The survey also showed that nearly all major religious groups have become significantly more accepting of homosexuality in recent years -- even evangelicals and Mormons who traditionally have expressed strong opposition to same-sex relationships. 

Changing attitudes about homosexuality are linked to wider acceptance among the younger generation than older adults. 

The study also showed that the religiously unaffiliated -- the majority of whom still believe in God -- are now more numerous among Democrats and Democratic-leaning adults than Catholics, evangelicals and Protestants. 

The religiously unaffiliated are growing less quickly within the Republican party, where they are outnumbered by evangelicals, Catholics and mainstream Protestants, Pew said.
The poll was carried out among a representative group of 35,071 adults interviewed by telephone from June to September 2014 and has a margin of error of 0.6 percentage points, Pew said.

My Comment"

There has never been a time when following Jesus was more difficult or more important than right now, in America.

Joshua declared, during difficult times, "And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." Joshua 24:15.
