This message is to cause us to think. It will help us to understand the knowledge of God as PRV 2:3,4 mentions. At least since Egyptian engineer Imhotep built a step-pyramid for Pharaoh, engineers have had to ask themselves what is the breaking point when the stresses & loads will destroy a structure. A similar phenomena happens for God’s prophets…when has a group’s cup of iniquity reached “full” capacity and is at God’s boiling or flash point for vengeance. We have a number of examples explained in Biblical history.
WHEN THE CUP OF INQUITY IS FULL. A commonly cited example is the Amorites in GEN 15:16: “For the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.” Now these people were pretty bad, and yet in God’s longsuffering love He waited another 400 years to put them under judgment. God’s longsuffering love is unfortunately taken for weakness by the simple. Another name for this filling/breaking pt. is “the Day of the Lord’s vengeance and year of recompenses”.(A) Can a cup of iniquity be emptied when it is full? Yes, when Jonah (862 B.C.) went to the sinful metropolis of Ninevah, they repented, but it only took them about 150 years to refill the cup and received destruction in the prophet Nahum’s day (713 B.C). Nahum prophesied, “Woe to the bloody city!…the mistress of witchcrafts, that sells the nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts.”(B) Similar to this is when Babylon the Great of today reaches her full/breaking pt. described in REV 18:4,5.
CHOOSE LIFE. The fundamental message God has given me over the years is to preach LIFE. In DT 30:19, YHWH God says He sets before man the choice of life or death, and that we should choose life. Yahshua said he came to give mankind “life and life more abundant.”(C) As Spurgeon preached, “O man, why are you so diligent to be your own destroyer?—
“Sinner, oh why so thoughtless grown?
Why in such dreadful haste to die?
Daring to leap to worlds unknown,
Heedless against your God to fly.”(D)
Spurgeon also points out in his sermon that the measuring cups for different people are different sizes and bring with them different punishments. And he points out that it fills the cup of iniquity when God allows disasters to get people to turn to Him, and they remain hardened. This is the day and age we live in. God is allowing the Illuminati to manipulate the weather globally hoping that some will soften and see the frailty of man and their need for Him.
WHERE ARE WE AT TODAY??? Are we at that breaking point when God’s flashpoint of vengeance and judgment is unleashed? For sure America has been practicing “treasuring up wrath”!(E) They don’t just sin, they treasure their sins!! And for a day, their evil will prosper, but evil always contains the seed of its own destruction!!!! But going back to that previous thought about choosing life…let’s read a warning by the prophet Amos: “Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live….Hate evil and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the Lord God of hosts will be gracious…Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.”(F) So my friends, don’t look forward to when the cup of iniquity is full!
THE PREVIOUS BREAKING POINTS. In Sodom, it was when no one wanted to continue normal sex. In Noah’s day, it was genetic tampering. DARPA has been implanting people with brain implants which they guardedly admit monitor and control the brain’s functions (!) on the road to meta humans. The cover story is that this will help treat mental illness, incl. soldiers who are ill from trauma. (Yeah, right!) Already we know of war robots, genetically altered solders, and exoskeletons being created for warfare. The desire to kill other people does not justify the destruction of the human genome and the creation of half-human/half robot beings. Not if you seek life and seek good. Unfortunately, under the fear of self-preservation, people are willing to allow these evils to take over. Death creating death. Add to that all the self-indulgance, wantom waste, and perversions and you have one very sick society in North America.
POSSIBLE EVENTS. I think major weather disasters are possible soon. God has released His hand of protection, and the evil Powers that control this planet are hell-bent are more apocalyptic weather disasters. We have not seen the NW USA’s West Coast and the Cascadia fault line explode into a 9.0 earthquake. If it goes, we may see a normal domino effect of other trigger pts.: CA, Alaska, and Yellowstone National Park going. Yes, I am aware of the elite’s increased activities in western WY as if perhaps it was a safe area. And it is safe from Lyme disease! To share some of my own concerns…I think Lyme disease is being used to take out dissenters and hard core Christians. It is hitting too many of my friends who are threats to the World. Touching God’s annointed and murdering millions of the innocent unborn babies each year are quick ways to fill the cup of iniquity to its breaking pt.!
FINAL THOUGHT. This coming year will have new disasters to replace the ones that just hit. The earth is vomiting out wrath. We need to choose life and choose to do good. It is that simple. May you choose life in every decision you make my friend.
