Why God Can Not Bless America
Psalm 9:17 ” The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”
Isaiah 1:4 “Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.”
1. America has forgotten God. They have denied the fact that America was founded primarily by Christians, based on Christian principles, dedicated to God by George Washington laying his hand on the Bible after he gave his first speech as President.. at the site of a small church.. located at ..Ground zero..in New York.
America was used by God and blessed by God rising to a be a Great Nation very fast, as they spread His Word by sending out missionaries, and honored Him in their thousands of Bible Preaching churches. They had great statesmen, and Presidents that feared and honored the God of the Bible, for their is NO other God. Sadly today, we have representatives who are sodomites.. such as Barney Frank. We have become so politically correct that speaking the truth has become a hate crime. Right is always right, and wrong never changes. Because God never changes. For example. A disease that originally was called “Gay Cancer” (AIDS) is now protected. We used to be smart enough to quarantine those who caught deadly diseases, such as whopping cough.
2. We have outlawed His Word in our schools and public places. When terrible things like the bombing in OKC, and other disasters happen, and people say “Where is God”, He could easily reply.. You told me to leave, You kicked me out. You forgot I was and am the fountain of all blessings (and cursings as well)!
3. God says in Isaiah 3:4 “And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.” He has given us leaders that do not know what they are doing. Amateurs.
Isaiah 3:12 “As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.” It is a sign of judgment when a nations leaders are made up of women, Secretaries of state, directors of Homeland security. Etc. That is not their role. You see, this is what God says, and it is not very popular, but if we want God to bless us, we must repent, admit He is right, and we are wrong, and “Turn from our wicked ways.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
The problem is SIN! Sin against a Holy God. Electing a new leader does nothing to avert judgment unless they are like Hezekiah and turn us bgack to God. No politician can come up with an economic rescue plan that can rescue us from disaster, no matter what they say. Only God “can heal our land”.
God has so many ways to judge a nation.
One way is to send a drought, a lack of rain , which produces crop failures, which brings famine, and high food prices, where there is food. This is exactly what America is facing, this summer of 2012. There has been no rain all across America. Colorado is in flames. Heat waves are still upon us, nation wide. The corn crops and others are failing. Has God got your attention yet.?
Deuteronomy 11:17 warns us “And then the LORD’S wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you.”
Hera again is The REMEDY.
1Kings 8:35 “When heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou afflictest them:”
Turn from corruption, fraud and lying. We now are faced with what to do about a leader who falsified the documents needed to obtain political office. He lied. What will we do?
We have political leaders who will do anything to get a vote. They will pass laws to legalize or give amnesty to illegal lawbreaking immigrants, to get their votes. And if is what they do publicly, what is done in secret?
The sin of lying. Have you told lies, or been dishonest? To your spouse, or to your employer? Have I? Then the sins we commit as individuals bring the judgment of God.
How about sex outside of marriage between man and wife. This is called fornication, or when done with someone you are not married to, adultery. NO.. we do not live in and “ENLIGHTENED age.. we live in a wicked sinful age. Jesus called His generation sinful and adulterous. Read Matthew 12:39 ” But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:” (Three days in the heart of the earth, the same as Jonah.)
I tried to confess the sins of America and to ask God to forgive us. It got so bad as I did so, I wondered if God could forgive such a wicked people.
The sin of murdering millions of babies to convenience through abortion. Our government will jail you if you discipline your child, but will pay to murder it. ?
The sin of accepting the sodomite lifestyle. Homosexual activity is a choice, a choice to defy God and satisfy your lust. The sins of robbery, and murder, and car theft, drug taking, drunkenness and debauchery. The violence and assault that is so prevalent. The worshipping of nature “save the seals” instead of worshipping the God who made all things. The proud indifference of a person who thinks “I don’t need God”. The haughty attitude of lawmakers as they defy God’s principles and make their own rules. The nudity and profanity all around us and saturating our society. The many false religions that have replaced the truth. Child pornography?! God hates it when an innocent little life is harmed. Can you imagine what He thinks about raping and sodomizing an innocent child? The pornography everywhere you look. I apologize I am so inadequate and uninformed as to make a complete list. It is huge. Sin is a stench in the nostrils of God. America has turned from a sweet smell to a stink. We, and I certainly include myself must stop our sinful ways. that is the only remedy.
