It is hard to believe that America, within the last seven decades, has turned around so drastically; from missionaries sending nation, into Christian hating nation. It all started when the “power that be” acquiesced to an atheist woman, Madeline Murray O’Hare’s request to ban prayer in school!
That movement led to the current demise of America as a blessed Christian nation as the following article attest:

A recent statistical analysis by David Barton graphically illustrates how America has plummeted from righteous living, prosperity and success in the last quarter century. Consider the following chart compiled from his study, America: To Pray or Not to Pray.

Madeline Murray O’Hare’s son, whom she was trying to protect from knowing and obeying the Lord GOD, turned to GOD, and wrote a book describing what a GOD-less life is really like:

Why do “men” chose to live a life without GOD?
The Lord Jesus Christ gave the reason of what are inherent in the heart of men!
 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,  Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:  All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
I know all of us are so desirous, when the time come, to be raptured to meet the Lord Jesus Christ in the clouds before the Great Tribulation is poured upon the earth. How sure are we about being raptured before Tribulation?
It had happened before; the Great Tribulation by flood in Noah’s time. In fact, my previous article shows how GOD protected His own (believers or those who walked )
 And the Lord said, I will blot out man that I created from the face of the earth, yea from man to the birds of the air, together with cattle and beasts that are in the field for I repent that I made them.  AND ALL MEN WHO WALKED IN THE WAYS OF THE LORD, DIED IN THOSE DAYS, BEFORE THE LORD BROUGHT THE EVIL UPON MAN WHICH HE HAD DECLARED, FOR THIS WAS FROM THE LORD, THAT THEY SHOULD NOT SEE THE EVIL WHICH THE LORD SPOKE OF CONCERNING THE SONS OF MEN.
When Enoch was raptured, there were an appreciable number of “men who walked in the ways of the Lord” who disappeared at the same time:
Jasher 3:32 AND IT WAS AFTER THIS THAT HE ROSE UP AND RODE UPON THE HORSE; AND HE WENT FORTH AND ALL THE SONS OF MEN WENT AFTER HIM, ABOUT EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND MEN; AND THEY WENT WITH HIM ONE DAY’S JOURNEY.
And they left no trace whatsoever which can only mean that they were raptured together with Enoch!

PRE-NOAH’S FLOOD RAPTURE.
That is why, a great number of bible scholars believe in Pre-Tribulation Rapture; as a matter of fact, Mid or Post-Tribulation Rapture, only goes to say that there is no consistency in the way the Lord GOD treat His own people or worse yet, we are saying that the fate of believers is no difference than the unbelievers. Do we have to go through GOD’s wrath? Think real hard!
Apostle Paul warned us with the following caveat:
2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.  But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.  But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them…
The Lord Jesus warned us the same forthcoming event:
Matthew 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven…  Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you…  Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
And the then forewarned event is here now; so is rapture of the body of the Lord Jesus Christ!
CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION IN AMERICA

What scares me most is to regard as impossible to find a communist or a Muslim, who condemns, publicly, all the murders committed by them to this day, at the expense of the poor and peaceful innocent Christian martyrs! Who can find in the West, a Muslim who condemns Sharia?
Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; (Romans 2:9)
the voice of one who cried in this darkened world.
