Post #250: My Beloved America
My beloved America is in trouble and those who say they are trying to help her are doing her more harm than good. I am reminded of a medical procedure from a few centuries ago where the physician would open a blood vein to let the bad blood out in hopes of jump starting the persons recovery, and our leaders are trying to save America by draining her economic resources. Blood-letting was a bad idea centuries ago and draining off our economic resources is just as bad. Many times the ill person died from the blood-letting and my beloved America is wobbly on her feet. There has never been a day in America that even closely mirrors the times we are presently living in. And unaware of the lateness of the hour, my beloved America is entering the darkest hour of her history. Darker even then the lowest point of our revolutionary war when it seemed we were short of everything and friends with no one. America was fortunate at that time she had men who loved her and men of vision leading the way. But that isn’t so today, the men and women leading the way are selfish people looking out for themselves rather than what is best for my beloved America.
The darkest hour of night doesn’t just magically appear, it follows certain other hours of the night before it reaches that dark point. America has been in a steady decline for decades now. Meaning, a new day is dawning, something new on the horizon is stirring up confusion before it like a huge dust cloud before a sand storm. This cloud of confusion is creating fear and driving others out of their minds as it passes over them. Many who have fallen victim to this cloud of confusion believe their insanity is normal and common sense is insanity, that evil is good, and what is good is evil. My beloved America has never experienced anything like this in her short history. Where common sense once reigned; insanity is slowly replacing it. Our leaders are stumbling around in the dark like drunks. They have not been immune to the effects of this cloud of evil. They don’t know whether they are coming or going or what they are creating. Confusion is sweeping back and forth across this nation like a hotel carpet sweeper picking up loose dirt. America who was at one time the living testimony of what God could do in a country when He was free to work among us has fallen victim to this evil. There are a certain percentage of citizens in America who act like they love these new changes because their sins have been legalized or are in the process of being legalized by people trying to appease them for the sake of a vote. But in reality these government officials are selling us out in hopes of reaping great benefits for themselves, but what they will reap is a whirlwind they won’t be able to escape. Anytime change is made, whether good or bad, there are pending results for making those changes. You do the right thing, you get right results; you do the wrong thing, and you get wrong results. Our government officials know this because most of them are business men; but instead of running our country like they do their businesses, they are forcing change upon all the people despite their objections to please a few and I sincerely believe these blind leaders of the blind do not have a clue there will be a price to pay for making those changes.
Our elected officials would not be in the position to be doing the hurtful things they are presently doing to my beloved America if not for the church electing them into office and putting them in a position where they could abuse the people. Hopefully, when all of this is said and done, America will still be strong enough to recover from this horrific onslaught by evil men with evil intentions in their hearts. A new day is upon us and what the church does at this time will determine whether or not things get better, or we pass away into oblivion like so many other world powers before us. America has never had a society within its borders that is so close to the verge of coming under the complete control of Satan, so it will be a new experience for us. We have fought countries that have let demon-possessed maniacs run them, but we have never had to deal with them here at home outside of the criminal element in our society. However, despite the direction our country is headed, the church of God has the final say. If God be for us, who can be against us? However, if we (the church) do not seize the moment and grab the bull by the horns and turn this country around while we still can, the church will be held accountable for our lack of action.
The nature of the devil is death and destruction and he will destroy and kill every person that can be destroyed, but, friends, he has no power over God’s church if the church will submit itself to the Lord. The church of God is the salt of the earth, (and is useful to God and man) but if the salt loses its flavor, it is good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot of man.” The church of God cannot afford at this time to lose its flavor and be trampled underfoot by this evil invading our country. God is counting on us to stand strong and allow Him to direct our actions. Jesus is at the door (of the church) knocking, waiting for us to open the door to Him, so He can come in and dine with us, and we with Him.” (My paraphrase of Revelation 3:20) What that means is – if we open the door to Jesus Christ and let Him direct the affairs of this nation, it will not be lost, it will not be overcome by this present evil. He will come in and dine with us; and while He is in the house, He will clean up the mess we’ve made of things, and our nation will become even greater than it has ever been. If we do not let Him back into our nation, it will continue to stink up the world as it has for the past three or four decades. And as you know, stink accompanies something already dead or dying and is the results of the decaying process that precedes the thing returning to its natural state of nothingness leaving behind only the bleached bones of the carcass of a once great creature.
The bible teaches us, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” God didn’t mince words in this short scripture and it pretty well sums up the future of America and the world. If God is the Lord of our nation, it will be blessed. If not, the future of our nation is in doubt. That’s pretty plain english. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want the future of my children to be in the hands of confused people. I want to know they can grow up under the influence of God and enjoy the same rights and privileges I have enjoyed in my lifetime.
