The United States Of America has many problems. Sadly, one of the biggest signs of a nation suffering the effects of their sin is called a solution by those who enjoy their sin and desire to remain in it. Even worse, there are Christians who see this sign as a necessary answer to help solve the problems without seeming to realize that they are encouraging more sinfulness and immorality by supporting the solution they embrace.
This sign, though there are also many others, is two-fold:
- An out of control, over-sized, over-reaching government.
- Reliance upon that government as the solution to society’s problems and provider for the seemingly and actually less fortunate.
During the past few decades the Federal Government of the United States of America has grown to be more powerful, more controlling, and more dangerous to its citizens than it has ever been. We have a Congress that is so cowardly in its continual grab for ever more power that they continue to invent new departments and bureaus to regulate every aspect of our lives. It has come to the point that our elected officials no longer pass most of the rules, regulations, and ordinances that govern our country but instead leave the new “laws” to be put in place by unelected bureaucrats in an ever-growing list of government agencies, departments, and bureaus; and the ones they do actually vote on are mostly written by power brokers and monied groups that often seem to own the politicians. It has also become a regular assertion that an adult citizen of the United States of America cannot live through one day without breaking at a minimum one federal law.
The Book of Proverbs tells us exactly why this has happened:
Proverbs 28:2 For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.
Let’s look at the first part of this verse of Holy Scripture for a few moments.
For the transgression (revolt [national, moral, religious]) of a land (earth, country, nation) many (abundant in number, size, age, rank, quality) are the princes (head person [of a rank or class], governor, chief, lord, master, ruler) thereof.
Transgression is not a word we often hear in today’s society, so let’s take a little closer look at it. The Hebrew word ” pesha’ “, here translated as transgression comes from the word ” pâsha’ ” which means: to break away from just authority, trespass, apostatize, quarrel.
It has been said on the world stage by former President Barack Hussein Obama, that the United States Of America is no longer a Christian nation. Many in this country have agreed with him, and many claim it never has been.
Think about this for a moment. The President of the United States claiming that the United States no longer follows Christ (the Messiah), no longer follows the teachings or WORD of Christ Jesus. I believe that this statement from the leader (at that time) of our nations opened the floodgates of the spirit realm to allow the kingdom of darkness to flood our nation. And former President Barack Hussein Obama is not the only one to blame, it was the American people who put him there; he was speaking as our elected official words that have implications I seriously doubt he had any understanding of; especially the consequences they carry in the spirit realm and how that affects the natural realm. President Barack Hussein Obama was the one to profess that the nation of the United States of America is in national moral and religious revolt against the just authority of Almighty GOD, and that we as a nation no longer follow the teachings of the LORD Jesus Christ, the Living WORD Of GOD made flesh; that we as a nation no longer follow Almighty GOD, the Creator of all that is created. But the United States of America has been heading in this direction for a very long time, and we have been seeing the effects of such rebellion against Almighty GOD in the outrageous growth in size, unconstitutional scope, and unconstitutional power of our Federal Government.
To add fuel to the fire, much of the United States of America believes we need such an enormous government to “take care of the people” of the country. A huge segment of our population believes it is the responsibility of the government to provide for them, to help them, to feed them, to educate them, to clothe them, to provide medical treatment for them, to provide housing for them,…the list goes on and on and on and is ever increasing. The government is spoken of as though the government is their savior from all their problems and ills. And even worse, many Christians agree with them. These people, in their belief system, have replaced Almighty GOD with the government. This is in fact the political system known in this world as Socialism; whose two main divisions are Communist/Marxist Socialism and National Socialist (NAZI) Socialism. In these belief systems there is no GOD, only the government. This is the path our nation, the United States of America, is currently on.
It seems that under President Barack Hussein Obama our country greatly accelerated its headlong rush into a godless society that is running toward denying the very existence of the Almighty GOD that created every one of us. Under our current President Donald Trump, it seems the brakes have been put on slightly, but we are still going in the same direction; and many are becoming violent because of the seemingly slight amount of brakes that have been put on to slow our demise down. I am not saying that President Donald Trump is an example of moral fortitude; I am only saying that under his presidency it seems we have slightly slowed our rush to destruction.
We have precious little time to stop and take a breath, and do what needs to be done to save our country before it is destroyed from within. We must recognize the truth about our nation; the truth about ourselves.
