The Shortest Sermon Ever Preached August 18, 2015Posted by stevekerp in Current Events, End Times, Harbingers.

ON (or probably very close to) THIS DAY IN HISTORY: Jonah began his trek through the city of Nineveh, proclaiming “In 40 days, Nineveh will be destroyed.” This was probably the shortest sermon ever preached, but the people believed and repented, and Nineveh was spared.
What about us? We in the U.S. are certainly an overqualified people who have sinned against God by persistent unfaithfulness (Ezekiel 14:13), and are over-ripe for judgment. As a nation, we have hardened our hearts and stiffened our necks against God and His word. Even the so-called “Christians” in this land are, by and large, satisfied to try to placate God with a Sunday ritual, while otherwise ignoring Him. How much time in prayer, Bible study, and Christian fellowship? How much time watching TV? With what do we fill our minds on Saturday night before “going to church” on Sunday morning? Are we really fooling God? Or just ourselves??
Don’t be put off by the judgmental tone of this post. I’m not enjoying this either. But we may have just FORTY DAYS to repent, before God Himself displays His righteous wrath against this land.
In the following article, Michael Snyder lists events that are already planned for September: 10 Things That Are Going To Happen Within 15 Days Of The End Of The Shemitah. He summarizes his conclusions:
As a nation, we have unapologetically embraced evil. We are extremely proud, arrogant, greedy and cold-hearted. I do not believe that there is any hope for our nation unless we are shaken to our core.
I am fully convinced that the months ahead are going to dramatically change life in America, but whether it happens right now or not, I am 100 percent convinced that a great shaking is coming to this nation at some point.
I share his concern. Clearly, significant change in the global village is being planned and implemented. More importantly, there are some compelling reasons to believe that God is about to intervene powerfully in human history. Jonah has a message for us. Are we listening?
