What is Wrong in America
There is a Battle Raging All Over the World
Are You More Concerned With the Spiritual Matters than With Material Matters?
There are many things that are right in America. That should be obvious to anyone with open eyes. Many, inspired by love, still care for those who are in need of food, shelter, and spiritual attention. Some donate money to the same organizations who take care of the areas above of the less fortunate.
Millions are in need of medical assistance and affordable drugs of all types. Examinations, operations, to affordable medications are lacking due to a flurry of financial considerations. Unfortunately, many in the lower and lower middle classes have the same needs and still lack affordable health and prescription insurance even today.
The churches of America should be of more assistance in the process of helping those less fortunate which is also obvious. I do realize that many of the body of Christ already have. The spiritual warfare rages on in America and the world.
The examples above are merely examples of a much greater problem which is common in the digression of a nation like America and the ones that preceded her. The stages of national progression are:
1) From bondage to spiritual faith,
2) from spiritual faith to great courage,
3) from great courage to liberty,
4) from liberty to abundance,
5) from abundance to selfishness,
6) from selfishness to complacency,
7) from complacency to apathy,
8) from apathy to moral decay,
9) from moral decay to dependence,
10) and finally from dependence back to bondage. Where is America in this sequence of progression?
Let us examine what I believe to be one of America’s biggest problem. To state in plain language; our biggest problems are America and the countries systems have snubbed their collective nose at the founding God. It is easy to lose your heart and soul with God. An attitude of “We don’t need You!” when the opposite is the truth.
Is it possible that God is permitting the U.S. to die a slow extremely painful death? Can America be saved as a nation?
Spiritual food for thought: "A person should be more concerned with spiritual than with material matters, but another person's material welfare is his own spiritual concern." Rabbi Yisrael Salanter, (lived 1810-1883) What is wrong in America is a complex issue. I know that America has lost its heart and soul to materialism.
The Lone Cross
The Spiritual World Affects our Material World
While many Christians live in a lethargic state of inactivity today we are in the midst of an unseen spiritual war more real than our reality that rages between the dark forces of evil and the Godly forces of light.(Ephesians 6.12)
It is as it always has been. This battle we are currently in may be occurring in the season of the end of God’s grace towards sinners. What a frightening thought for sinners in the world.
What are our biggest problems that emanate from the Spiritual world into our reality:
1. Racism - This is bad no matter how you dress it up. God made all the beautiful colors and furthermore He will take from all kindred and tribes to be set apart as His own. Racism extends both ways between races and is evil.
2. Violence - Assaults, murders, rapes, and drugs are topics which any Godly country should not be hearing. But our nation is fed by a media system that glorifies all things evil and makes it like in the end no one gets hurt. They do. No Christian should be involved in this kind of violence.
3 Insane Taxes - Do you realize we pay taxes at the gas pump, the grocery store, the pharmacy, on our car and tag, for our homes and land, and for every dollar you make working and when you buy anything else. We are taxed every way come Sunday. And taxes hit hardest on the poor, especially on income tax.
4. The current Economy - This is hard for everyone. Prices are high, wages are not. The gap between the haves and have-nots is wider today than ever before. The Economy is not going to get better. It is fueled by profit at all costs including those they sell to and their own employees.
The globalist and so-called secular humanists have an arch enemy in each and every born again Christian doing the will of God. The dark forces are at work in the background and have an ally in every globalist and secular humanist who is marshaling liberal (sic) forces trying all they can to rid the United States of our Judeo-Christian roots.
Liberal defined includes words like open-mindedness, open-handed, and lacking no restraint in doing the right thing. What you find with many of the liberals in America today they are neither open-minded or generous towards those that oppose them.
As a group, they are in fact closed minded and downright nasty towards those who do not hold to their views. The ills of the country are many, and like metastatic cancer, it is difficult to pinpoint any one problem area more than the other.
The United States literally killed its financial security by the use of abortion as birth control with over 56,000,000 of its future taxpayers. Think about it. If one takes as few as 70 percent of these euthanized by abortion contributing to the Social Security System since 1972 our nation would have a surplus instead of a massive deficit.
Coincidentally Planned Parenthood has named Hilary Clinton as the abortion queen of the century. We have in place education systems that deny God and teach evolution as the beginning of the species while the evidence overwhelmingly suggests this could not have occurred by mere chance as the Darwinists story weaves an untruth.
If evolution and the earth were millions of years old were true we would have new species popping up in the marshes of America and the world every day. American moral relativity acceptance of man’s ways instead of God’s Way is at an all-time high.
While the divorce rate has dipped slightly in the last ten years the acceptance rate of divorce being morally right is at an all-time high. For a practicing Christian, man’s moral acceptability which clashes with God’s ways has an obligation to recognize and reject outright. (Judges 21.25, 17.6, Proverbs 21.2)
The Hall of Shame
The Hall of Shame
There are denominations and churches within America which teach everything and anything except the real Gospel that Jesus Christ died on a wooden cross He created and was buried for three days in the ground to rise very early on a Sunday morning nearly two thousand years past. These types of churches are in the Hall of Shame.
(He was buried Wednesday on one of three Sabbaths that holiday week) Jesus resurrected for the sins of the world, and the Christians hope for the future without which Paul states all is for naught. (re. 1 Corinthians 15)
The lack of preaching the truth of the Gospel above more often is one part of the puzzle in the lack of immediacy of the average believer.The denial of many countries, including the United States and the United Nations, that God granted Israel the land “forever” is another problem in governments and even churches around the world.
The land grant was restated numerous times and expanded by God the Father. Humans, thumb their nose at God on this issue as well.It is evident America has denied and disobeyed God at every turn by calling evil good and good evil. (Isaiah 5.20)
The Bible says “woe to those” who practice doing evil and not to glorify the unholy actions which we do regularly in the media. The Gospel of Jesus Christ still preached and peoples still saved as we near the end of the season of God's Grace which is probably delayed as God is still showing mercy for those still coming to Him.
I hope it is not too late? However, this depends on the U.S. repenting of its sin and turning away from glorifying sin and evil. After repentance, God can help the U.S. begin the reversal of massive rift in the America fabric caused by unseen dark spiritual forces using willing and unsuspecting peoples. The Spiritual world is more real than the virtual reality we live within.
The Word of God attacked from within and without in America’s age of skepticism, moral revisionism, and deceit at all levels of government, education, and religion. The doubt of the Bible exists even within the walls of the church. God is still in control, and a real Christian may be called on to sacrifice as other believers in the Hall of Faith have done in the past. (re. Hebrews 11)
However, strengthen your resolve and your faith for whatever the future holds. Moreover, if I am right, the Rapture of true believers may be just around the corner as well. I believe we can all agree we are nothing but dust without the Creator. The Lord Jesus Christ used the Apostle Paul to write the doctrine of Christ and His body of believers, the Church in the Romans letter. I leave you with this - study it. God's blessings, Gary.
What do I think?
The world is more complex than ever before and data is worth more than the individual persons within the data. But the Gospel of Jesus Christ is one-on-one like it always has been. The woman who touched his hem, the beggar by the Sheep Gate and the pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, the woman at the well, etc. He loves each individual and wants to save them from their sin so they can spend eternity in paradise. He will come if you call Him. He will save if you ask Him. Break down the barrier between you and He by simply asking. Eternity awaits either way. Gary Hill
