How long, O Lord, how long?

Welcome to EndTime Issues

Stealth, deception, and finally coercion are operative evil strategies of the elites that shadow most segments of society. Divine intervention, however, will have the last word.


How long, O Lord, how long?

“In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God” (John 1:1). Before the creation of this world, Christ and God existed as unique “companions.” Later, after Adam was formed, one of them said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him” (Genesis 2:18). Man needed a companion – just like God does.

  • With Eve’s creation, marriage became a divine institution.
  • Later, a family made its debut, becoming a sacred unit.

    “God ordained that man and woman should be united in holy wedlock, to raise up families that, crowned with honor, would be symbols of the family in heaven. And at the beginning of His public ministry Christ gave His decided sanction to the institution that had been sanctioned in Eden.”[1]

Those original, God-purposed relationships were to be a model expression of what society should be like and even a foretaste of heaven.
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). When the Word was made flesh, when He became “the only begotten of the Father, the Son, Jesus Christ, the man, then “God” became an extraordinary “family” – Father and Son. To every person, the invitation is given to be part of that God family – to become a child of God! Because of Christ, mankind can be born again into the family of God, and the condemnation and guilt of evil can be removed!

  • The devil seeks to mar the human family and that amazing family of God!
  • Through deception and enticement, he seeks to change God’s order of harmony within relationships.
  • “Satan has tempted human beings to disregard the law of marriage as a thing unholy, but at the same time he has opened the door for the indulgence of human passion. Thus have come into existence some of the greatest evils which curse our world, – adultery, fornication, the murder of innocent [babies].”[2] Abortion has even become an industry. Cultural Marxism which came out of the late 1960’s, promotes every kind of sexual fantasy.

Shattering the Divine Plan of Intimacy
July 2023, former President Obama wrote an open letter to libraries, supporting the retention of sexually explicit books. At the center of his horrible recommendations, he supported pornographic materials targeted at children!
He tragically noted: “Today, some of the books that shaped my life – and the lives of so many others – are being challenged by people who disagree with certain ideas or perspectives. It’s no coincidence that these ‘banned books’ are often written by, or feature people of color, indigenous people, and members of the LGBTQ+ community….”[3] He twisted the logic by suggesting that authorship by minorities, indigenous people, and those of color who are LGBTQ justifies the retention of these culturally evil books. Children and young people who are straight could be enticed. Stunning – he legitimizes sin that undermines God’s order.
In The Daily Wire, Matt Walsh roasted the former president, pointing out that “the only books that anyone on the right is challenging are pornographic books.”
He asked: “Why does Obama want your kids to read porn like this in school?"[4]
The Federal Department of Education released an LGBTQ toolkit in June of 2023 to create a greater “inclusive” environment for students. It directs Create Gender and Sexuality Alliances (GSA) clubs that districts must allow under federal law. Students are to be protected from “book bans” because that might create hostile environments.[5]
Lurie Children’s Hospital, Chicago IL, has been retained to go to school districts to hold sex education workshops. Specific in its curriculum are lessons on anal sex and gender identity. This has become a part of the National Sexuality Education Standards (NSES), a K–12 sexual education curriculum. “Fifth graders must learn about different sexual orientations and eighth graders should be taught about vaginal, anal, and oral sex.”
That children’s hospital charges up to $1500 for a 90-minute workshop. The Illinois legislature is considering mandating that all K–12 districts adopt these sex education lessons. An activist organization, Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), supports this requirement, the giving of gender change information, and horrifyingly, keeping everything from parents.
Intriguing! This curriculum uses videos to illustrate many of their points, which are raw pornography.[6] God’s original order of moral intimacy is being fragmented along with the family!
Adding to this God-defying movement, 250 Hollywood stars recently promoted punishing anyone who promotes normal “biological sex.”[7] The innocence of children is being destroyed by satanic administrative mandates.
Sacrificing Children[8]
Ancient societies often surrendered their children to the gods. America is no better. Its children are victims of sexually charged teachings. They are bystanders with their innocence destroyed.
Challenging parents, Target and Kohl’s department stores are marketing “pride” merchandise, even for babies. Target is selling T-shirts featuring naked adults and promoting homosexuality.
“Popular kids’ shows like Sesame Street, Blues Clues and Peppa Pig push homosexual propaganda. Disney boasts of its ‘not-at-all-secret gay agenda.’ At Disneyland, a man in a dress helps little girls choose princess outfits.

“To celebrate pride month in June, Joe Biden invited thousands of homosexual activists to the White House. Transgender men and women stripped off to pose topless in front of children, while the rainbow flag displaced the American flag on the center of the White House portico.

“These activists once claimed a free-speech right to hold pride parades. Now they demand the right to invite children to watch mostly nude adults perform sex acts on each other.

“At drag events, children are prompted to stuff dollar bills into the underwear of men dressed as women….

“A New Jersey high school secretly allowed some of its students to perform a drag show for a select group of staff. Homework assignments require students to read or write about masturbation or describe how comfortable they are with homosexual sex acts.”[9]
An Indiana court recently removed a child from his home because the parents refused to accept that their child had swapped genders. Washington State passed a law in May allowing the state to take a child if his parents won’t consent to gender-​affirming care.
“The evils of the transgender movement have become so obvious that some countries are changing course. Sweden and the UK have backed away from chemically castrating children. ‘Puberty blockers’ are no longer prescribed. Britain’s Tavistock clinic, the National Health Service center for transgender children, has been shut down.

“Tragically, in so many other areas of society, the movement marches on.

“It all begins with a little compromise with sin—breaking God’s law (1 John 3:4). Sin cuts us off from God (Isaiah 59:1-2). Sin ‘distorts the thinking, becoming deeply engraved in the mind (Jeremiah 17:1), and searing the conscience
(1 Timothy 4:2; Ephesians 4:19). Sexual sins in particular pervert wholesome thoughts and feelings. They undermine respect and honor for the opposite sex and appreciation for the family as God created it.’

“Sexual sins feed on themselves. A little pornography generates a desire for something more perverse. Extreme pornography takes the viewer further into the cesspool. As Pulitzer Prize-winning author Andrea Long Chu wrote, ‘Sissy porn did make me trans.’”[10]
Romans 1 explains exactly how society reaches this point of depravity. Verse 18 warns, “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness (NIV).
Prophecy compares such conduct with child sacrifice. God condemns “you who burn with lust among the oaks, under every green tree; who slay your children in the valleys, under the clefts of the rocks” (Isaiah 57:5 – RSVB).”
The agenda behind this movement is not simply about destroying physical life. It is the blotting out of God’s order for these children’s futures!
Isaiah 58:1: “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.” Ezekiel was advised: “Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations” (Ezekiel 16:2).
Maniacal Campaign to Redefine the Meaning of Female
All things corrupt and unholy are celebrated in America. Officially, the month of June was set aside as “Pride Month” to celebrate immoral, perverted sexual behaviors widely practiced in the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. In contrast, “straight white men” who hold to conservative Christian values are condemned by left political leaders as “white supremacists,” “violent extremists,” and “domestic terrorists.”
Changing God’s plans is further seen when male athletes, who pretend to be female, dominate women’s athletic competitions. The voice of women’s sports has been silenced. Men, identifying as women, are incarcerated with female inmates. Predictably, there are growing reports of rape and sexual assault in jails in this mandated affiliation.
Men, masquerading as women, are invading other women’s space, such as locker rooms, bathrooms, girls’ schools, dormitories, sororities, women’s shelters, and spas. 57% of teen girls feel threatened and helpless. 30% have seriously considered suicide in such milieus.
Without a higher purpose from a morally affirmed culture, young ladies move into helpless despair. They have been encouraged to kill their unborn children, mutilate their bodies in a pursuit to be the impossible – a man. Brilliant talk show host, Dennis Prager, observed that the dominant force in America and many other western countries today is fear of the Left, which drives these evil pagan movements.[11]
Decent Americans are watching in horror as this nation rapidly morphs into a pagan playground for sexual revolutionaries masquerading as freedom fighters.
The late Phyllis Schlafly explained in her book, Who Killed the American Family:
“The American family was destroyed by a combination of political activists, judges, economic theorists, self-proclaimed experts, and left-wing politicians.
“The goal of the progressives,” Schlafly revealed, “is to break down the American family, destroy parental authority, deny right and wrong, reduce family autonomy, and get as many people as possible dependent on government programs. That’s why liberals, especially feminists, wage a persistent attack on the institution of marriage and the traditional family structure.”[12]
Criticism irks corruption and evil, stimulating a spirit of retaliation. It attempts to neutralize its opponents into silence. The beauty of God’s original order is being shattered! The cry of Daniel (12:6) and of the martyrs (Revelation 6:10) reverberates among the righteous: “How long, O Lord, how long?”
Criminalizing Free Speech
The State of Michigan is swiftly moving toward making it a crime to say anything negative about someone if they claim it feels threatening. That is precisely what the Supreme Court ruled was illegal in June of 2023.

  • State Bill HB4474 will make a it a “hate crime” to speak any words that make someone “feel terrorized, frightened, or threatened.”
  • This was created by individuals who have had opposition to their “sexual orientation” or “gender identity.”

Penalties will be up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Distinguished Professor Emeritus William Wagner, a former federal judge and legal counsel to the U.S. Senate, said:
“Make no mistake about it. Those advocating for this legislation will wield these policies as a weapon capable of destroying conservative expression or viewpoints grounded in the sacred. One merely needs to look at the scores of cases brought against schools, churches, businesses, and individuals around our country. Proponents use these laws to silence and financially cripple those who dare to adhere to a different viewpoint and oppose their agenda.”

Republican Angela Rigas, a Republican in the House, explained:
“The state of Michigan is now explicitly allowing the gender delusion issue to be used as a ‘protected class.’”[13]
In June a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction, barring governmental workers from contacting social media companies to suppress lawful speech. The Biden administration quickly filed a “notice of appeal” to block this action.
“This is treason. The Presidential oath sworn on the day of inauguration very specifically states; ‘I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

“The First Amendment prohibits the federal government from passing laws restricting freedom of speech and abridging freedom of the press. Of all the clauses in the Bill of Rights, this is the one that is the basic foundation of our Constitutional Republic.”[14]
The egregious moves by the Biden administration did not go unnoticed by Terry A. Doughty, U.S. District Judge in Louisiana. He banned the White House officials from even meeting with tech companies to scheme “about media censorship.”

  • Biden, however, had channels to direct that certain speech be suppressed.
  • Fox news, in reporting on this, said that the White House “violated the Free Speech Clause.”

Judge Doughty noted that the censorship campaign by Biden “almost exclusively targeted conservative speech.
Mark Chenowith, chief of the New Civil Liberties Alliance, said:
“The federal government has been deliberately censoring speech protected by the First Amendment.

“Its conduct has not merely threatened free speech; our government has actively suppressed free speech in an orchestrated, unprecedented and entirely unlawful manner. The Biden administration’s outrageous assault on Constitution and on the civil liberties of Americans must end….

“The federal government is deciding whose voices and ideas may be heard, and whose voices and ideas must be silenced.”[15]

Fox News noted: “If the allegations made by Plaintiffs are true, … [this is] the most massive attack against free speech in United States’ history.” … “In their attempts to suppress alleged disinformation, the federal government, … [has] blatantly ignored the First Amendment’s right to free speech.” [16]
Dennis Prager, in his weekly “Fireside Chat” podcast for Prager University often takes questions from around the world. A young man called in and asked how to figure out who is telling the truth and who isn’t.

  • Prager said that his indicator was not perfect but came close.
  • “With rare exceptions, the party that calls for censorship is lying. People who tell the truth can deal with dissent and different opinions. In fact, truth-tellers welcome debate.”[17]

An interesting prediction regarding free speech from the antichrist sea beast:

  • “and all the world wondered after the beast” (Revelation 13:3c).
  • “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven…. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Revelation 13:5-6, 8).

As is becoming culturally evident, free speech is and will be defended for those promoting evil and resisted whenever moral appeals are promoted.
The world will be enamored by this beast, speaking its defiance of God, heaven’s occupants, and His church. In this insurrection of Christianity, John adds: “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them” (13:7).
Liberty Teetering
Republican Senator James Lankford believes that religious liberty will be a pillar issue of the 2024 political agenda. Protection is compromised for living one’s faith, practicing one’s faith, and speaking out about one’s faith.

  • The Biden administration is not protecting liberty of conscience, even from laws already in existence.
  • Example: The University of Vermont scheduled a nurse to assist with an elective abortion, being fully aware of her objection to the procedure. The Biden administration (Justice Department) was asked to intercede but declined to act on behalf of the nurse.[18] She was fired.

Bob Unruh of World Net Daily warned that it is appalling what Biden thinks about parents’ beliefs and who has charge of their children. On June 12, 2023, in a video address, the president said that “kids are ours … they are all our [the government’s] kids.”

  • His address was during “Pride Month,” which supported gender transition and homosexual behavior in children.
  • Nicole Neily, President of Defending Education, said that the sentiments coming from the nation’s capital are “horrifying and appalling.” The government assumes that if a child wants to change its gender, parents won’t love them! … Therefore, the government must be in charge. Neily noted that Biden’s “belief system” was: “Parents are unfit to decide because of parents’ old-fashioned values.”[19]

The current moral decline in the U.S. is glaringly obvious to anyone outside the D.C. beltway. In a June 2023 study, 91% of Republicans and 50% of Democrats felt that this country is in cultural and economic decline.[20]

Why is this significant? An anticipated state of affairs following natural disasters will lead to helplessness and a national cry to God. As in ancient pagan cultures, a cause for calamities and devastation were sought. Anciently, appeasement steps to the gods became reflexive. A natural reaction to appease God through some form of worship will follow. The Bible suggests that it will lead to forced worship of a false Sabbath, called an abomination (Daniel 11:31, 12:11, 8:11-12).
“Men in responsible positions will not only ignore and despise the [true] Sabbath themselves, but from the sacred desk will urge upon the people the observance of the first day of the week, pleading tradition and custom on behalf of this man-made institution. They will point to calamities on land and sea – to the storms of wind, the floods, the earthquakes, the destruction by fire – as judgments indicating God’s displeasure because Sunday is not sacredly observed.”[21]
Central Control Objective
As the religious integrity of this country shrinks, Marxist-leaning economic powers are moving into command positions. Nine out of ten companies listed on the S&P stock exchange want central government controls. The largest shareholders are the “Big Three” investment firms: Black Rock, Vanguard, and State Street.

  • Managing more money than most small countries, they have an invisible foothold into every sector of American society as shareholders of a vast number of companies. Creating religious mandates could easily come from a few powerful leaders to acquiesce to coercive regulations.
  • As these three powerhouses grew, “social leftism” began moving from college and university campuses to infiltrating American culture. Centralized power and American Marxism have spread their tenacious tenacles. All three are deeply involved with Environmental Social Governance (ESG), forcing company boards to comply with cultural issues that heighten their power.[22]

As central control of corporate America solidifies, another force, the United Nations, schemes how to manipulate the United States. Justin Haskins, research director of The Heartland Institute, wrote in The Federalist that just before the 2024 presidential elections, the United Nations will consider “operational” activity. Its plans will come from the “Summit of the Future”; and its operational influence will be called the “Pact for the Future.”
Though there are numerous proposals how to initiate U.N. control, perhaps none are more important than its plan for a new emergency platform, “a stunning proposal to give the U.N. significant powers in the event of future global shocks, such as another worldwide pandemic….

“In other words, the United Nations would be given unprecedented authority over the public and private sectors of huge swaths of the world, all in the name of battling a yet unknown crisis….

“Further, the strategy by the international power brokers at the U.N. would let the emergency run on as long as they want, and the ‘justifications’ for the power grab would include climatic events, pandemics, digital disruptions, and ‘unforeseen’ events.

“The emergency platform proposal might be the biggest attempted power grab in the history of the United Nations, but as shocking as it is, it pales in comparison to the Biden administration’s treatment of this extremist proposal.”

Rather than assert America’s independence and sovereignty, the White House has expressed its support for such an emergency platform. U.S. Ambassador Chris Lu noted in at least two March 2022 speeches that the Biden administration backs this along with a coercive “Our Common Agenda.”

“Biden, in fact, ‘agreed to sell us out’ by giving ‘the United Nations greater control over the lives of Americans than it has ever had before.’”[23]
A further crack in America’s structure was addressed in July of 2023. Renowned legal constitutionalist Jonathan Turley reported that the Left has embraced authoritarian language, calling for defiance and radical measures even against the Supreme Court.

  • Harvard law professor Mark Tushnet and San Francisco State University political sciences professor Aron Belkin, in an open letter, called upon President Joe Biden to defy rulings of the Supreme Court that they consider a mistake.
  • Stating that Biden should continue to follow his own constitutional interpretation. The president had already said that the judiciary was not a “normal court.”

Turley wrote, “What is most striking about these professors is how they continue to claim they are defenders of democracy yet seek to use unilateral executive authority to defy the courts and, in cases like the tuition forgiveness and affirmative action, the majority of the public. They remain the privileged elite of academia, declaring their values as transcending both constitutional and democratic processes.”

He added, “In other words, they are calling for Biden to declare himself the final arbiter of what the Constitution means and to exercise unilateral executive power without congressional approval. He is to become a government unto himself.”[24]
To defy the Constitution is to justify restricting words or behavior from any opposition. Prophecy suggests that this spirit will mature and bring persecution to God’s loyalists. The prince of evil will supervene this agenda.

  • “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” (Revelation 13:7).
  • “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Revelation 12:17).

“Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers” (I Timothy 1:9-10).

  • What happens if lawlessness comes? Satan and his minions control. Revelation 13 is activated.
  • We’ve nearly reached a cultural zenith when evil is called good and good evil (Isaiah 5:20).

The great standard of relationships and peace, the Ten Commandments, has been removed from schools, universities, government buildings, courthouses, law schools, and even churches and synagogues.
Standard bearers and Spirit-driven voices will rise but will be opposed.[25] Godless “elite” individuals who hold the reins of power are coming close to the Biblical narrative of the end of time.
“How long, O Lord, how long?”
