Samson A Picture of What America Looks Like Today


ray-gano-medBy Ray Gano

Luke 21:9  But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

We have seen massive earthquake, tsunamis and Middle East turmoil, sinking global economics and just about every other thing that can go wrong is going wrong.

But what still blows me away is that people are in disbelief.

I am not talking about those who do not know God. I am talking about people who claim the title Christian. It seems that the majority of Christians in the world just can’t wrap their brain around what is going on. So what are they resorting to?


I keep hearing ” I can’t believe this is happening. The world is breaking down no matter where you look.”

OR… and this one is a doosy ” Yea it is in the bible, but I did not think it would happen now.”

Folks, what we are witnessing is what Christ himself said would happen.

For example, we have the entire Middle East shifting from bad dictators to worse, Muslim Brotherhood Sharia states and ISIS. Islam is spreading like a bad cancer and it seems that no one in our governments cares. In fact, they are more than willing to help push it forward even more.

Many parts of Africa, Europe, and even America are coming under Islamic pressure and countries are capitulating, bowing to Islam and accepting Dhimmitude; accepting and submitting to Sharia law and its satanic mindset.

Diseases like tuberculosis, measles and even the plague are returning with a vengeance.

But this should not surprise us because Christ told us these things must come about.

Luke 21:9  But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

I have to be honest, back in 1992, I honestly believed that we would not see the year 2001. So many things were coming to pass and in fact that was why I started Prophezine to document these things and equip the saints to go share the gospel using bible prophecy and world events.

Fast forward to today and the pangs have gotten far worse and frequency has also increased.

But my biggest concern out of all of these things is, believe it or not, Hillary Clinton getting into office.

Hillary Wins… Christianity Suffer Greatly

hillary Enriching Herself like third world dictatorsFolks, you know and I know what a Hillary presidency will mean.

First of all it will mean that our nation will fail to exist, at least the nation we grew up in. Much has changed already and it has been going down hill quick, but what she will do is literally destroy our country.

Like what you are seeing take place in Venezuela?

That will be America in the next several years if she gets in.

But here is the troubling part, there are Christians out there who are to ignorant for their own good saying that we need to just bring the pain on because it is God’s Judgement for our country.

Listen, I don’t buy into this big huge revival idea and that America is going to be the grand beacon shining on the hill once again. Sorry, not going to happen.

What I do believe is that we have a chance to possibly give our country a few more years with God’s mercy if Hillary does not get in.

With that time, it is my hope that maybe enough Christians will get involved so that MAYBE we might see what happened in Nineveh (book of Jonah) take place in America and God show even more mercy upon our nation.

What bothers me is that there are a group of people out there that want God’s judgment and they have no idea what they are asking for.

They think that God is going to “Passover” them like He did the Israelites in Egypt.

“Oh Judgement will come but God will protect us.”

Can God protect? Yes He can. But He protects when His people are NOT THE CAUSE of the problem.

What many fail to remember or think about is that we are where we are in our nation because we as Christians were lazy, complacent and we allowed the evil to prevail.

Did we raise up and riot when they took prayer out of school?

What about when the 10 Commandments were taken out?

How about when Roe v Wade was passed?

What about when the gays decided to come out of the closet?

Did we take it to the streets in mass when Gay marriage became the law of the land?

OH… and Transgender in our children’s bathrooms, what about that?

Did we do anything to truly try to stop any of this?

OH WAIT… Some folks signed an online petition, that was about the all of our protesting and action…. Big woop.

We did nothing. We as Christians have turned into a bunch of pansy, weak willed, panty wastes.

SO will God Passover us? In all honesty I would say no because we are where we are because it is our own doing.

Samson A Picture of What America Looks Like Today

samson-templeIf I was to give a biblical example of us as a nation and a character from the Bible, I see a lot in common with the U.S. and Samson.

Real powerful, did great things for God. But after a while it went to our heads and started to get big, fat and lazy. Started to entertain the wrong sort of people and all of a sudden we have been weakened.

He was sold out to his enemies, had his eye burned out of his head, and his great strength taken away from him. He was enslaved, put to the task of grinding the wheat pushing a large mill stone.

Finally, when he finally realized that he was in trouble because of his own selfish doings, Samson sought out forgiveness.

God heard Samson’s prayers asking to be used once again. While the Philistines had him in their temple showing off their “prize”, God allowed Samson one last time to be great and take out the Philistines by destroying the temple/arena they were feasting in and in the process killing himself as well.

There are folks out there that say” Bring it on… let’s go out in a blaze of glory.”

Sad thing is that this is a very selfish attitude.

We Need To Stand and Seek God’s Mercy

How many people do you know and love that do not know the Lord?

When God’s judgment comes against America, it will come for all.  I know that my prayers have changed and I have been asking for God’s mercy upon our nation.

This is one of the main reasons why I am voting for Trump, so that Hillary does not gain the office.

I have been asking God for that few more years so that people who do not know the Lord can get their lives in order and possibly that we as a nation might truly act upon 2 Chronicles 7:14.

We call ourselves Christians, well we need to start doing as Christ commanded us and to share the Gospel.

Listen, this may sound strange, but one can get totally wrapped up in bible prophecy, world events and neglect why we are here; believe me it is easy to do, I know.

I am constantly keeping myself in check and doing a check up from the neck up.

man-praying-on-one-kneeNow more than ever we need to be getting into His Word, spending time in prayer and fellowship, surround ourselves with Him so that we remain in His will and by doing this avoiding temptation and being able to turn away from the sin in our lives.

The time is now, the rubber is meeting the road and there are many Christians out there if judgment came, they would fold like cheap lawn furniture.

Now more than ever we need to be praying for God’s Mercy to see us through. We need to pray and ask the Holy Spirit give us the power to do what is right in His eyes and not shame the Lord whom we serve.

We know a storm is coming, but we need to be ready so that we can occupy till He returns. We do not know the day nor hour so we must be ready to go at a moment’s notice but also hang for the long term for the battle still continues for the souls of men.

There are those of us on the front lines and there are those who are support. All of us play a critical role in these last days.

It is the person who is doing nothing, the sluggard who is beginning to question God, these are the ones who are folding like cheap lawn furniture, they have no grounding in His Word and are Christians In Name Only.

They are the ones who are showing their fist to God’s Face and saying “Bring it on… bring on your judgment.”

We are living in exciting times. Those of us who truly love the Lord .

In a recent email conversation , my friend Dick hit it on the head when he said this…

“Daily bible reading, daily and continuous prayer, daily praising the Lord.  Live as a testament to Christ.  Be a witness to others as to what Jesus has done in your life.  Tracts, encouragement, support for the workers in the field, prayer with tears, hearts in all the work of the Lord, etc.  These are the things that we should be doing.”

We have the chance to make a difference and truly occupy till He returns.

Prepare mentally, spiritually and physically. Noah did not fear the unknown because he had his ark. We need to learn from Noah and build our ark that will see us through mentally, spiritually and physically just like Noah did.

One of my most favorite verses is the following…

Eph 6:13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

We are still in the process of “and having done all.” But soon it will be the time to stand.

Will you stand when that day comes or will you fold like cheap lawn furniture?

Strengthen yourself today in Him and His Word. Then you will not fold. But instead having done all…YOU WILL STAND!
