The North and South American continents are not mentioned in biblical prophecy.

Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the Orient are all mentioned.

Mark Hitchcock, senior pastor of Faith Bible Church in Edmond, Okla., wrote his latest book “The Late Great United States: What Bible Prophecy Reveals About America's Last Days.”

In the book, “Hitchcock writes that although America has historically enjoyed the blessings of God, that may not continue to be the case in the future.

“’Unless we experience a moral revival and shake off the domination of the secular humanists who control our government, media, and public education, we will be a fifth-grade power in twenty to thirty years,’
writes Hitchcock.”

North America must come upon a holiness revival if it is going to survive the coming onslaughts by secularists.

B. Hussein Obama in the White House is the open display of secularism spread. He, Muslim Marxist, will not defend the Christian heritage of America. He made that clear in his inaugural address when he elevated atheists on the level of Christians.

However, the Holy Spirit honors the righteous remnant everywhere, including America. He also honors the prayers of our founding mothers and fathers. Those intercessions are still honored before the eternal throne. Just because years have gone by does nothing to change their honorable place in the timelessness of eternity.

Consequently, God will act upon North America. His wrath will come upon the disobedient with curses. His mercy will come upon the obedient with blessings. Read GOD’S BLESSINGS AND CURSES at

Biblical believers must live the holy life, keeping the faith strong by surrendering their every thought to Jesus. Read SURRENDER YOUR THOUGHTS TO GOD at

There is a stirring among the genuinely faithful. It is the determination to keep biblical morality mighty. The more the Oval Office and Congress war against the biblical ethic, the more the grassroots righteous remnant will remain tenacious.

God honors that kind of perseverance. God has never been on the side of numbers. Satan has the majority on his side. God has the minority on His side; it has always been that way.

Matthew 7:13-14: Jesus speaks: “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

But numbers don’t count with God. The position of the soul counts. The Bible is replete with real-life accounts of that.

Yes, there is weakness within some ranks of Christendom. That has always been as well. However, there will be till the end of time the stronghold of the righteous remnant. God has promised it in His Word.

At the same time, the Western Hemisphere as a power force is not stated in biblical prophecy. Read Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 as well as Ezekiel 36-39 and Daniel. Check out the symbolic imagery of the Book of Revelation, chapters 4-20, concerning End Times.

NOTE: Pastor Swank authored MOMENTS TO GO, A STUDY OF THE SECOND COMING, Beacon Hill Press of Kansas City, 1974, the book now out of print. However, a few copies are available via such venues as Amazon books.
