“Hear this word, you cows of Bashan, who are on the mountain of Samaria, Who oppress the poor, Who crush the needy, Who say to your husbands, “Bring wine, let us drink!” The Lord God has sworn by His holiness: “Behold, the days shall come upon you when He will take you away with hooks, and your POSTERITY (generation to generation) with fishhooks.” Prophet Amos 4: 1-2

“Decline of Christianity in the West” is a very vast subject to be studied for and many aspects of Western society like liberal secularism, pluralism, materialism, ecumenicalism, free thinking liberalism and deadening traditionalism in mainline Churches are involved. There is no Prophetic Voice to speak against these ISM’s and against the tide of New Age thinking, the occult, eastern and western cult and to share Christian morality and values. Thus Christian posterity (Generation to Generation) is under wrath of our living God and He has started to punish the West. I assure the readers of this sermon world over that in the coming days I shall discuss above topic at length by inspiration of the Holy Spirit for the spiritual revival of the whole WEST in coming issues of Masihi Sansar (Christian World) fortnightly North Indian Christian newspaper.
According to the London based The Observer newspaper dated September 11, 2000 Whites Britons will be an ethnic minority in Britain by 2010 and it would be the first time in the history that a major indigenous population has voluntarily becomes a minority, rather than through war, famine or disease. Observer further says that in the early 1950s there were only a few tens of thousands of non-whites in Britain. By 1991 that had risen to 3 million – 6 per cent of the population. The population of ethnic minorities has been growing at between 2 and 4 per cent a year. Mass immigration has been running at record levels, with 185000 newcomers last years. New immigrants who are of average younger than the population at large, have higher fertility rates, while the population of White British citizens is static. Their fertility rate is very low – at under 2 children per woman – and there is over all emigration of British citizens.
The above ground facts are really very shocking for the Christian world. But this is the tip of the iceberg. The spiritual state of affair of the West particularly in the Europe and North America is very grim and has reached to a no returning point as it was happened in the days of Prophet Noah and Sodom and Gommarah when the God had destroyed the world. But He did save the families of Prophet Noah and Lot respectively. Still it is time to beat the trumpet sounds in the West to repent and turn to its living Saviour Lord Jesus Christ.
How truly God warned that I will fishhook your posterity (generation to generation) due to your alarming apostasy and its inevitable consequences which we can well see from the statement of Mr. Robin Cook, Secretary, Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, U.K which he delivered in Victoria Hall, London on 20th July, 2000. He said “I want a foreign office that shows to the world the true face of modern and multi-cultural Britain.” Mr. Cook noted that he has been selling Britain to the world but today I am here to sell the foreign office to the representatives of the ethnic Asian minorities. We are the world’s fifth largest trading nation, exporting more per head than the U.S.A. and Japan. We are also the world’s third largest overseas investor. We attract more foreign investment into our economy than any other country except the U.S.A. and London is the world’s largest currency market. I want the British Asians to progress to the top post in the Foreign Office.”
Verily verily true Mr. Robin Cook has claimed. But Biblically the God of Israel asks to the Great Britain again whom He made supreme/mighty nation and allowed them to rule two third world for centuries and in whose empire sun never set in, “where is your own posterity (generation to generation) which I have fish hooked due to your sins you cows of Bashan (West) who say to your husbands, “Bring wine, let us drink!” Prophet Amos 4: 1 verse. Wine is extremely harmful for women than men according to the World Health Organization reports and is a hindrance in raising children.
Abortion the second sin which the West committed in abundance. In the words of Late Mother Teresa Abortion is a murder in the mother’s womb. Honorable British Parliament which is also called the Mother of Parliaments has even gone against the nation’s own Constitution by placing on her Statute Books, laws which make legal things like abortion which the Holy Bible expressly declares are an abomination in the sight of the Lord and which provokes Him to anger and many European countries legalized abortion in the row with Britain. Due to the iniquitous United Kingdom Abortion Act the nation now has the blood of more than two million legally murdered living creatures on its hands, plus all the unrequited blood which has been shed since the abolition of capital punishment.
Now to counter the adverse impact of Abortion Act the British Government is to launch a publicity compaign to counter soaring unplanned teenage pregnancies, the London Evening Standard has just reported. The message will be based on the slogan “it’s ok to be a virgin,” and will cost 60 million pounds. More than 90000 girls under 19 become pregnant each year in Britain – twice as many as in Germany, three times the number in France and six times that in the Netherlands. For which the Holy Bible clearly says that God is angry and is going to require all that blood at the hands of the nation and its people. Hence it is no doubt that by 2010 White Britons will be an indigenous minority in their own country due to their abomination against their living God. That is why the whole Europe including Briton is not more than 9 percent of world population. Historically Europe is a Christian continent of 515 million people. Out of which only 2.8% are born again evangelical Christians. Could we say that Europe is reached continent with Christ. Perhaps, absolutely not and requires does require fervent prayers and evangelical preaching.
The European and North American governments should drawn a lesson from the Singapore government. Sensing the acute shortage of children in Singapore, the Prime Minister of Singapore has just issued a package last month to his nation that if any couple would have one baby, the government will deposit 500 Singaporean dollars in his/her name for first five years and 1000 dollars for second baby to protect the posterity of Singapore. This movement should be started from Western Churches, Pastors and international evangelical preachers like me to save the white posterity in the West from further decline.
It is high time for Europeans and North Americans to think about their posterity (generation to generation) which is highly at risk due to their sins and God’s wrath mentioned in book of Prophet Amos 4: 1-2. They must repent and turn to their living God and concentrate seriously to grow in their faith, family and freedom in Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.
I challenge The Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches in England which is the fellowship of 460 Evangelical Churches in U.K., Evangelical Churches in U.S.A. & Canada, Church Women United, U.S.A., The International Women's Day of Prayer, Asian Church Women Conference and present flag holders of the International Fellowship of the Least Coin and other Christian Women’s organization in the West to beat the drum of repentance and preach this message from the Holy Bible, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicales 7:14 verse. Further the Holy Bible says:-
“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, and your entire household.” Acts 16:31
“Children are a gift from the God; they are His reward.” Psalms 127: 3
“Your wife shall be contented in your home. And look at all those children! There they sit around the dinner table as vigorous and healthy as young olive trees. Psalms 128:3
“An old man’s grandchildren are his crowning glory. A child’s glory is his father.” Proverbs 17:6
