Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 33:12
Have you ever asked God the question, why are all of these bad things happening to America? In order to answer this very important question we have to take a look at the nation of Israel, God's first chosen and see how they were treated upon their defection and rejection of Him! History doesn't lie and there is much to be said for a people who God loved with all of His heart, but brought about His righteous judgment because of their disobedience and their subsequent rebellion toward their heavenly Father.
Adam was God's firstborn son created for His pleasure and purpose to see a race of human worshipers inhabit the planet and to become fruitful and multiply, thereby expanding the heavenly kingdom here on earth. Adam and his wife Eve were given a command not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, but they disobeyed and were expelled from the presence and provision of their Creator. From that time forward, over and over again God's people continued in rebellion against Him bringing about judgment and retribution until they finally ended up enslaved in Egypt, a once great nation laboring in the mud pits of despair for their enemies. Sound familiar?
You know the story, God's people cried out and He sent Moses to deliver them from their bondage, and so it was that they were set free and brought into the wilderness to trust God once more, but they rebelled again and were scattered in the desert. Again,"Cause and effect," the cause was rebellion, the effect was judgment on a stiff-necked people who refused to obey God and would not submit themselves under His guiding hand and so He gave them once again into the hands of their enemies! Aren't you glad God has changed and has become more mellowed out, or maybe He's just gotten older and doesn't want to offend anyone or hurt their feelings, after all He wouldn't be very politically correct if He continued to act like He did with Israel!
Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, all ate the same spiritual food, and all ate the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual rock that followed them, and the rock was Christ. But with most of them God was not well pleased, for their bodies were scattered in the wilderness. Now these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted. I Corinthians 10:1-6
I WONDER WHY THE GOVERNMENT IS BROKEN?
Now all these things happened to them as examples, and were written for our admonition, (to warn or instruct) upon whom the ends of the ages (last days) have come. I Corinthians 10:11
America was founded on godly principles and laws were established to recognize God and keep the government out of religion. For years these principles and laws were respected and freedom of religion was safe, that is until new generations arose with new philosophies and ideas of their own, giving way to a nation of politically correct and ignorant people who have totally rebelled against the precepts of God! It is no different today than in Moses day when God's people rebelled against Him in the wilderness and many were destroyed because of their actions and total disregard for the Most High. The apostle Paul warned us that these things were written for us in the last days that we might not end up like Israel.
Is America under the judgment of God? You be the judge! In order for one to determine that we are indeed being judged we have to take a hard look at why God would judge us in the first place! For years the moral fabric of this country has been eaten away by the moth of apathy and complacency toward the precepts and commandments of God, a total disregard for His word and a defection from the glorious gospel of salvation causing a generation to arise who are lost and devoid of the only truth that can set them free. Another reason for this rebellion against morality is the backslidden cowardly preachers of this nation who have refused to preach the truth of repentance from sin and rebellion, and instead have gone a whoring after money and fame only to leave the church in ruins, inhabited by a seeker friendly environment of lackadaisical, event motivated, consumer driven, politically correct people who cannot discern good from evil, destined to perish in their ignorance in the fires of Hell!
If you don't believe me, then believe this: we have moved from Osama to Obama in just fourteen short years when the towers fell, prophesied in Isaiah 30:25. Do you think 911 was just an attack from a foreign enemy on a great nation who is totally ignorant of their spiritual condition and defiled the Muslim holy land in their lust for oil? The terrorists who flew into the Trade Center as well as the Pentagon were of the same bloodline as those armies of the east that God sent against Israel when they sinned against Him. You mean 911 was an act of God's judgment and not an act of war on an arrogant land of rebellious people who have deeply offended the Most High God by their rebellious actions and defection from His law? Yes indeed! The Trade Center was a symbol of man's pride, greed and selfish arrogance standing as a giant twin phallus (symbolic representation of a penis) in the face of a holy God. History doesn't, lie we have gone the way of Israel by ignoring the Creator and His truth by our ignorance and lust for power and prestige and we have reaped the whirlwind of His divine retribution! Remember the tower of Babel?
For the day of the Lord of hosts (Judgment day) shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up, and it shall be brought low. Upon all the cedars of Lebanon that are high and lifted up, and upon the oaks of Bashan; upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up; upon every high tower, and upon every fortified wall; upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all the beautiful sloops. The loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be brought low; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day. But the idols He shall utterly abolish. Isaiah 2:12-18
I WONDER WHY SO MANY SCHOOL SHOOTINGS?
As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths. Isaiah 3:12
Again the government led the people to believe that separation of church and state was meant to keep the church out of government, when in actuality it was meant to keep the government out of the church, which has gravitated to the state funded schools of America. Judgment doesn't always come in the form of lightning bolts from the heavens, when God is made to leave a situation or an organization, or in this case the schools of America, He takes with Him His protection and blessing! When the presence of God leaves, the powers of darkness come in to rob, kill and destroy and they have had a field day in our schools.
Numerous shootings have plagued the high schools and colleges, not to mention elementary schools as in the recent New Town massacre. For years ever since God was forced to leave, prayer stopped, Bible reading and any form of religious activity was outlawed and evil began to enter, bringing with it a dark and foreboding spirit of murder, lust and perversion. Sex, drugs, alcohol and perversion of all kinds has made its evil way even into our elementary schools. From smoking dope in the restrooms to teachers having sex with students, molestation and sexual misconduct continue to run rampant down the halls of the once respected and protected schools of America. Sexting has become a popular way for students to send their friends selfies, nude pictures of one another during class that fuels the lusts and desires to a fever pitch. Oral sex is now an acceptable alternative to intercourse and is not even considered to be wrong because you can't get pregnant, so it is practiced throughout the schools of America.
Are you still wondering why? From the top to the bottom of the barrell, even in the churches of America there is perversion and every form of lust, pride and greed setting up our children for a fall, parents have no time to spend with their kids, so they dump them on coaches, ill-advised and often times predatory youth leaders, and any other person who will spend time to do what the parents of America should be doing themselves: training their own children! But you say, "We don't have time!" The problem is: they won't make time, there is time for TV, time for sports, time for hobbies, time for church, but no time for our kids who are reaping the effects of a deviant and totally ignorant generation of demonic babysitters paid to mentor the children of America!
For God established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers. That they should make them known to their children; that the generation to come might know them, the children who would be born, that they may arise and declare them to their children, that they may set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments; and may not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation that did not set its heart aright, and whose spirit was not faithful to God. Psalm 78:5-8
