Truth, Justice and the American Way
This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth. Jeremiah 7:28
Since it's inception America was founded upon godly principals using the word of God as a guideline. Men of God seeking religious freedom from the oppressive rule of England founded a land of promise providing great opportunity.
But alas, like the nation of Israel, America began to drift from the precepts of God to follow other gods of silver and gold. Pride, greed and selfish ambition fueled men's lust for wealth and power resulting in slavery, war and death. In the name of God our ancestors slaughtered the Indian, enslaved the African, exploited the Oriental and ran the Mexican out of their own country. All in the name of Truth, Justice and the American Way.
The comic book character, Superman always announced the phrase, "Truth, Justice and the American Way." in his battle against evil villains and criminal oppression. The man of steel was a symbol of strength and a hero for the youth of the 40's and 50's. Cartoons, movies and comic book hero's have been replaced by demonic creatures and seductive sirens polluting the minds of our youth and sending them on a downward spiral of depravity.
Truth in America is what the media convinces you to believe. Politicians are chosen by what they can convince you they can do, but in actuality almost never follow through with their promises. Men and women are convicted of crimes because of media coverage planting seeds of guilt in the juror's mind and portraying people to be guilty even before their trial.
America is probably the most powerful country in all of history, respected and once feared as a great military force and financial empire she is now collapsing under the weight of her own sin. At one time the gospel of Jesus Christ was sent around the world and millions were converted and discipled by her missionary's. In God we trust was our slogan and America supported the poor and the downtrodden in many of the world's underprivileged countries.
Today, missionary's from other countries come to us to bring the same message of truth that we once preached, but now have rejected. America has become a mission field for the rest of the world. From being a nation where truth once flourished, to becoming a secular society expelling God from our government and schools we have become a pagan atheistic conglomerate of spoiled, depressed and sick human beings struggling to survive.
You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32
With liberty and justice for all is the pledge of truth once revered by millions, but now an excuse for exploiting others for ungodly gain. At one time we defended the rights of the poor and downcast giving them amnesty and forgiveness, but now even our unborn are in danger of being murdered legally by their own mothers. Fifty million unborn American citizens were murdered by greedy abortionists seeking to line their pockets with the blood of the innocents.
This atrocity heralded even Hitler's reign of terror when he massacred the Jews. Babies in garbage cans still squirming in their own blood, thousands committed to dumpsters to rot in the sun deemed to be their final resting place. Hundreds and hundreds of babies nine months in their seemingly safe refuge in their mother's womb having their heads crushed and their brains sucked out by murdering devils. Now tell me how long a holy God who created all of these innocent babies can withhold His all consuming anger and subsequent judgment?
We would do well to observe the nation of Israel and the promise God made to them about sacrificing their children to demon gods. Israel rejected the word of God and gave their innocent children to the demonic deity, Molech, to be burned in the fire. In the name of "Choice" we have allowed our children to be sacrificed to the same demon god of destruction, only to await a terrible sentence of judgment from a deeply offended and angered God.
"They shall no more offer their sacrifices to demons, after whom they have played the harlot. This shall be a statute forever for them throughout their generations." Leviticus 17:7
THE AMERICAN WAY
Get all you can, and can the rest! A favorite saying of a friend of mine that preached repentance to a church full of people consumed with pride and greed, but it is really the American way. From an early age we are taught to be competitive and to win at all cost, never considering the outcome and the effect it has on others. Under normal circumstances competition is a good thing, but the way it has been taught to us has become perverted, just look what it has done to sports, promoting the "Superstar" athlete.
The youth of this country have been brainwashed into believing that to step on others on the way up the "Ladder of Success" is the right thing to do. Dog eat dog, an eye for an eye, push and shove, but win no matter what the cost. This ideology is characteristic of the American way, but it is diametrically opposed to the narrow way that the Lord Jesus Christ taught His disciples. "However you want to be treated, so treat others" is the golden rule that God gave us in relationship to one another, it is also the second greatest commandment, "To love your neighbor as yourself."
America was founded by bloodshed and has continued throughout her history to be a warring nation, hell bent on destroying anyone who gets in her way. Its one thing to defend yourself from aggression, but to pick a fight is another thing. We as Christians under the rule of a King, the Lord Jesus Christ are under a different mandate, to love not only our neighbors, but to love our enemies. Turn the other cheek, is a joke to most Christians, saying in response that they are just not there yet, but that is the very thing Jesus said to do.
Thousands have died defending this country to protect our liberties and many have proclaimed that because of this we have religious freedom, and so we do. Originally separation of church and state was to keep the state out of the church, but now even that has been reversed. In actuality the church does better under persecution and tribulation than it does in times of prosperity, all over the world in Communistic countries and in oppressive regimes the underground church has flourished.
The American church on the other hand has become rich and increased in goods to the point of being apathetic and stagnant and unable to carry out the commands of Christ to go and make disciples. Their love for Jesus has grown cold and their love of money has polluted their heart and defiled their relationship with God and each other. Greedy shepherds have exploited them and fleeced the sheep for dishonest gain and promoted their selfish agendas and ceased preaching the gospel of their salvation.
The American way has become a nightmare and and our lust for riches and power have consumed us to the point of a total economic meltdown. Banks are failing, the stock market is in a shambles and the government is bankrupt and refuses to admit it. Giant corporations are failing and economic chaos is eminent all over the country. Disaster after disaster have hit this country with unprecedented consistency, devastating further the nation's economy, not to mention the Iraq war consuming in excess of ten billion a month.
Behind the facade of the Star Spangled Banner there is corruption, bloodshed and deceit throughout this country from border to border. Greedy politicians are lining their pockets and promoting their selfish agendas.The war in Iraq was started under false pretense to protect the Saudi's oil rich country that in turn support terror with their huge profits as they laugh at us all the way to the bank. Thousands of young Americans have died defending the political agendas of this country to protect our lust for oil in a land where democracy simply won't work.
America has portrayed itself as a Christian country and yet she has rejected and thrown God out of her government and schools. The results of this act of rebellion has produced random outbursts of violent killings in churches, courtrooms and schools throughout the land. The rod of judgment is budding and America is being destroyed from the inside out. Sickness, violence and death are everywhere, perversion of all kinds has flooded the land producing a nation of sex offenders and rapists ravaging our women and children.
There is no truth or mercy or knowledge of God in the land. By swearing and lying, killing and stealing and committing adultery, they break all restraint, with bloodshed upon bloodshed.
Therefore the land shall mourn; and everyone who dwells there will waste away with the beasts of the field and the birds of the air; even the fish of the sea will be taken away. Hosea 4:1-3
When the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah reached the ears of the Most High He sent two angels to investigate the report before He was to bring total destruction upon the cities. On their way they encountered Abraham and he asked them if there were several righteous living among the wicked, would the land be spared and they answered, yes. Sadly there was only one, Abraham's nephew, Lot and his family. The angels proceeded and you know the rest of the story, the entire land and the people of Sodom were incinerated by the wrath of God.
Some have said that if God doesn't judge America He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah, but I say that His judgment has already begun. For years the economy has been eaten away like a moth gnawing silently in the dark, sickness has ravaged America by killing millions with cancer, heart disease and severe and lasting maladies of all kinds. Natural disasters have also contributed to the demise of America's once vast wealth, leaving her totally bankrupt and destitute.
"The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.' Revelation 18:9,10
When the Trade Center was hit by the same people that God sent against Israel for their rebellion and arrogance, in one hour America's symbol of financial prowess fell in a heap of ashes. God's arrows of indignation flew into the mighty towers with the force of a juggernaut. The world's merchants watched in horror as the giant towers fell. America had pushed the envelope of prideful exaltation and boasting and it reached the ears of the Most High God. Like the tower of Babel, man's arrogance had taken him to a new level of independence from the only One who truly cared for him, the Lord Jesus Christ.
America has become a god in the eyes of man, a symbol of strength portraying itself to be holy when in actuality it is a stone cold idol of self indulgence and God hates it. Full of hatred and racial bigotry and division, even the church has patterned herself after this land of self promotion and corporate squander. Like a whore she has spread her legs to every passer by to seduce them and fleece them for illicit gain.
If you do not have spiritual eyes to see and understand this warning about a country that many have pledged their allegiance to even before giving their allegiance to God, who gave His Son to die for their eternal soul and even now is about to turn against them. Like a mindless beast, this nation, if not totally destroyed in the flurry of God's wrath will join forces with a "One World Government" ushering in the end of all things. Remember Jesus warned that it would be just like the days of Noah when the flood came and took them all away.
The only hope is for the remaining remnant of spiritual leadership in this country to repent and tell the truth about the condition of our heart and the outcome of our grievous sin against a Holy God. If those that call themselves Christian will repent of idolatry and the worship of man and turn from their rebellion, then maybe it won't be too late to escape impending judgment and the total devastation of this land.
Babylon is not a physical place, it is a state of mind and a way of life. Babylon at one time was the center of political power and religious worship for a people that had long defected from God to serve their own man made deities of gold, silver and stone. Idols of worship and the works of their hands resulted in a lifestyle and a mindset of pride, greed and selfish ambition. This way of life has filtered down into today's modern church polluting the true gospel, and following the traditions of past generations, she looks and acts just like the world.
Jesus said, "For where your treasure is, there will be your heart also." and that is what you need to examine. Where is your heart? Does God have it all, or only on Sunday for thirty minutes, do you love this country and its provision, or does God have your allegiance and provide your needs? When this way of life finally crumbles where will you go for help, to God or to the world? The choice is yours and the decision that you make has eternal consequences.
And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues." For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Revelation 18:4,5
