Tyranny at the Doorstep of the House of Freedom

By Bill Wilson

The White House has forced out the Chief Executive Officer of General Motors as a condition for more government bailout money. While many across America may praise this move, it sets a dangerous precedent of government ownership and involvement in the affairs of our nation's private enterprise. Socialism and communism are failed one world order principles where government replaces God in the affairs of men. Americans allowing their government to even flirt with such political concepts of economy will result in certain disaster. This is tyranny in the making. It is the face of oppression rising above the horizon to shine its darkness upon the hearts of free men.

End time Biblical prophecies point toward a one world government controlled by the antichrist. Revelation 13:7-8 say,
"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. 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."
Verses 16-17 say,
"And he caused all, both small and great, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."
Revelation is an example of prophecies of the world government. There are many more. America has been since its beginning a beacon of God's light to the world. This nation and its people have been blessed financially and have been instrumental in spreading the gospel to the outermost parts of earth. In recent years, however, we have allowed the tares to rise up stronger than the wheat. We have not protected the good soil the Lord provided. We have harvested, but we have not replenished. We have allowed the rich soil to be carried away by winds of doctrines of men. And the stony earth remaining is symbolic of the selfish hard hearts of unrepentant men who changed the truth of God into a lie.

The precipitous fall of our nation to the godless system of socialism is directly proportional to the decline of strong Biblical principles practiced by the people of our nation. Proverbs 14:34 says
"Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people."
We know that a world government controlled by evil is to come. The prophecies will be fulfilled. We cannot stop it. But God has given us free will, meaning we can determine our place in prophecy. America should remain free so long as God will allow it that we might continue to spread the gospel. But God chooses to work through His people. It is our choice whether to accept the tyranny before us or to stand against the principality of bondage.
