Witness and Warn!

By David J. Smith

Newswatch Magazine radio and TV programs have been airing since the early 1980s. They discussed Bible Prophecy, and how it will affect America! The station manager of KXEN radio in St. Louis told me that I sounded like a “voice crying in the wilderness.” He meant I was a lone voice speaking of news in the light of Bible prophecy.

Many people understand there is something wrong in America, but they don’t grasp the spiritual implications. People in America have lost track of their roots, their heritage. If those settlers that came here from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Luxemburg, Holland, France, Greenland, and part of Germany had known their heritage, they would understand the spiritual problems today!

After Solomon’s death, the Northern Ten Tribes of Israel became tired of heavy taxation. They asked the next king to ease the taxes. He refused. Israel rebelled (1 Kings 11-12). The Kingdom of Israel separated themselves from Judah, the two Southern Tribes. Israel became totally separate from the House of Judah that followed King David’s line of kings. Israel became so evil that God scattered them among other nations, only to recover them to fulfill the prophecies of Genesis 48 & 49. Nearly all of the tribes were to become NATIONS in the last days.

The leaders of the Northern Ten Tribes were Joseph’s sons, Ephraim and Manasseh – the two half-tribes. Because of their collective sins against God and His Everlasting Covenant, Israel was taken into Assyrian captivity. Later, they began to migrate away from that land and went between the Black and Caspian Seas over the Caucus Mountains. They lived there for some time and began to be called Caucasians. This name has remained with them rather than Israel. Therefore, they became lost in history. The Tribe of Judah continued to keep God’s Sabbath Day [the seventh day of the week corresponding to our Saturday], so the world has thought they were Israel. The Bible distinguishes between the House of Judah and the House of Israel (example: Jeremiah 30: 4-7).

Eventually, Judah received a nickname – Jews. The first place in the Bible where the word Jew is mentioned the Jews are at war with Israel and Syria (2 Kings 16: 5-6). Many Bibles have maps in the front showing the House of Israel and the House of Judah. Israel was deported out of their land in 721-718 B.C. (For greater detail, read our Books The United States and British Commonwealth in Bible Prophecy and The History of God’s People and the Coming New World Order).

Because of Israel’s sins, they were to be punished seven times (weeks of years – 7 x 360 days in a year = 2,520 years). There was no year zero, so 2,520 – 720 = 1800A.D. By this time, Britain (Ephraim) ruled the waves and was extending her empire around the world. The United States made the Louisiana Purchase and doubled her size. Texas was annexed into the Union. A newspaperman coined the phrase Manifest Destiny, and America was now from sea to shining sea – the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans.

Wherever Britain and America went, they planted the seed of Jesus Christ among the people. Great Britain was declared to be Christian nation in 157 A.D. by King Linus. The United States was declared to be a Christian nation in a 9-0 decision of the U.S. Supreme Court on February 29, 1892.

Look how far both have strayed from Jesus Christ! Homosexuality is endorsed and protected by our federal government. Pot smoking, which is a mind-altering drug, is being proposed to become legal! Sex, in television and movies, were once considered unthinkable in a Christian society. Now they are promoted, endorsed, and accepted according to box-office receipts.

The federal government is even making condemnation of these evils a crime. It is called hate crimes proposed by the United Nations Genocide Convention Treaty. This so-called treaty is designed to destroy Christianity. It is designed to force ministers from “crying aloud and showing God’s people their sins!!!”

The Book of Hosea was a prophecy directed at the House of Israel and specifically, Ephraim, its leader. “O ISRAEL, return unto the Lord [Jesus Christ – 1 Corinthians 10: 1-4] your God; for you have fallen by your iniquity” (Hosea 14: 1).

Jesus Christ inspired: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn FROM their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will HEAL their land” (2 Chronicles 7: 14).

If repentance, is required for a physical nation, how much more so for those with God’s Holy Spirit!!! I say unto all – REPENT!!!
