November 2, 2004 journal, we have chosen ignorance and the certain death of our nation. "Wisdom cries out; she uttereth her voice in the streets: She crieth in the chief place of the concourse, in the evenings of the gates: In the city she uttereth her words, saying, how long, ye simple ones, Will ye love simplicity? And the corners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold I will pour out my Spirit upon you, I will make known my words unto you.  Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; but ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; when your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction coming as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.  Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me; for that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord; they would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof, therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.  For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and prosperity of fools shall destroy them.  But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil". Proverbs 1:20-33. "Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from beginning of the creation, for this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:  But the heavens and earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men". II Peter 3:3-7.   I'm quoting from the last Trumpet Newsletter for October written by David Meyer entitled "Chosen ignorance and the death of a nation".  I suggest people read his November newsletter. <lasttrumpetministries.org> "In this issue of the Last Trumpet, we will look with the true light of God's Word at a trembling, travailing, and tempestuous world that will soon be brought into final judgment. The above verses of Scripture clearly tell of the condition of the world's population in the last days and why the situation is so serious. The downfall of mankind, and particularly the people of the United States, is that they are willingly ignorant of their very own malignant condition and choose to remain ignorant of the only remedy that will save them.  The vast majority of people would not want to look at the content of this newsletter, because it applies the Word of God to current events and proves beyond a shadow of doubt that the end of all things is at hand.  It is easier to turn your head and pretend that you don't see.  It is much easier to choose ignorance and simply refuse to look and listen to the clarion call of signs of the times.  Most of the people will continue to do this, but thank God for those who will hear and fear.  There is something that all of us can and must do.  We must seek the Almighty with a true repentance and crying out for his mercy and grace.  We must for forsake sin and become true witnesses that will move at the impulses of the urgency of the Scripture. The antichrist is rising up, and no one will ever figure out who he is, because we can only understand this by revelation, and more of this revelation is coming everyday.  All things do not continue as they were, and the events in and on our earth declare emphatically that our Savior is coming with His swift sword.  There is still time but so little of it.  Even the unbelievers know in their hearts that something strange is going on in our troubled world. There are so many signs from God, it’s impossible to be ignorant of them”.
