America in Crisis

America in Crisis

“For when they shall say, PEACE and SAFETY; then SUDDEN destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, ARE NOT in DARKNESS, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all THE CHILDREN OF LIGHT, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.” 1 Th. 5:3-5

The state of crisis in which America is deepness everyday is nothing but the result of the deviation from God’s word and the corruption of the Christian leadership. The divisions within the government’s branches will eventually break the country. History has provided us with evidences of what will happen to a divided nation and yet we seem not to learn from it. But the real question is, What does the bible says about the future of The United States? There is NOTHING written in the bible about The United State, neither about Russia, except the reference in Daniel 11:44 where it says; ” But tidings out of the EAST and out of the NORTH shall trouble him (the antichrist)“. These nations will rise against the antichrist at the middle of the great tribulation, Remember this, East and North of the antichrist kingdom, which is located in the Old Roman Empire territory. Some had claimed that the bible refers to the future of The United States but when we breakdown the such passages, it turn out to be a fallacy. The fact that there’s no direct mention of it, let us with a conclusion that eventually the power and strength of this great nation will diminish.  When will this happens? Not a word is expressed in the Scriptures. Will America be Great again? No, if they keep pulling away from God and His Word. No matter who promise restoration to the nation, the prophecies expressed by God will be fulfill regardless of who make such promises. Let’s review some Scriptures that express how will God restore a nation that changes they way of life toward God:

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Observe the sequence of the steps expressed in this passage:

“If my people” Implying “Those who are dedicated to God’s word and Fear, Respect and Obey Him”. In this passage, the expression “my people” is connected with Israel, but the same passage can be apply to anyone who are separated himself for God. I’m not referring to any religion or cult but rather to a radial decision in the heart. The passage also expressed a connection between “My people” and “Which are called by my name”. I must clarify some that is not expressed in this passage. The reference in here is not about a religion, organization or any other form in which many are manipulating others. As I had stated above, the reference is to Israel first but also included anyone that act in obedience to God’s Word  and have separated himself from paganism. You can not pretend to receive blessings from The God of Heaven and living a corrupted and promiscuous life. There would be people who are inspired by their own lust that there is nothing wrong with living a pleasures life. these people are inspired by Satan and his lies, not by God.

shall HUMBLE themselves“. The Hebrew word used for “humble” is “kâna‛”, which mean “To be humble, be humbled, be subdued, be brought down, be low, be under, and be brought into subjection”. The connection here is to those in whom “God is the ruler” of their lives. Humbleness does not having to do with exterior expression or appearances, which can deceived in many ways. For many years many religions have mixed humbleness with poverty, which had confused many. When anyone make a recognition that WITHOUT GOD, he is nothing, such person is ruled in his heart by God and not by the things he possessed. Many are ruled by the possession he/her have and displace a acts of arrogance and pride. In the opposite, the person ruled by God will displace humbleness and mercy upon others.

“and PRAY“. What had happened with prayers today? These had been removed from schools, government offices, etc. which had made us to departed from dependence on God. Not only prayers are removed but also the reading of the Scriptures. Is this the act of a nation who God the the ruler? NO. the message we are sending to future generations is that we DON’T NEED GOD. The United States had already departed from the strong foundation in which it was founded. The bad news is this deviation will keep growing more until the point of breaking. It should not be a surprise to anyone that read the Scriptures that this is happening. Whether we want to acknowledge this or not, it will happens. Everything that has been prophesied will come to pass, exactly how God had predicted in His word.

Why the body of Christ or the church isn’t changing things in our nation? Because a good number of churches and ministers are corrupted and polluted with the things of this world. I’m not saying that everyone is corrupted, but MANY are, which is affecting the impact and role of the church today. We need to HUMBLE and PRAY to our God and repent of our sins. Then, God will turn things in a different direction. How do I know if my pastor or minister is corrupted? Jesus said.

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know THEM.” Mat. 7:16-20

The answer is “By their FRUITS“. If such minister is spent more time preaching about “Money, entertainment, social issues, Sport, etc.” that God’s Word, then, such Pastor or minister is corrupted.

Can Christians today distinguish between  a genuine preacher and a false? No. Why is that? because of the lack of Spiritual discernment.

Beloved, BELIEVE NOT every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because MANY false prophets are gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1

The concept of “MEGA CHURCH” today is corrupted and these people pursue only to “Control and profit from their followers”. Christ is not the center of these ministers, which are suppose to raise an army of spiritual warriors to destroy satan’s work. The main purpose of these ministers is enrich themselves using God’s word but in due time they will receive according to their works. People like Robert Jeffress, who told Donald Trump the following:

“When it comes to how we should deal with evildoers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary, including war, to stop evil,”

The God of Heaven doesn’t have anything to do with this statement but the opinion of a corrupted person. God will not kill millions of people, including Christians living in North Korea, just because of the obsession of a man. God’s purpose in not reflected in the words of Jeffress, nor in the intentions of Donald Trump. The corruption of these so called “ministers of the gospel”, is just the same as the false prophets of the Old Testament, whose messages were corrupted as they were.

Robert Jeffress is one of Donald Trump’s religious adviser has claimed God has given the president the authority to take on North Korea. Is this person a minister of God? NO. Until we can’t make a difference between God’s minister and satan’s disguised agents, we are expose to any attack. People like Joel Osteen (who cares more about making money), Pat Robertson, Ted Haggard, Benny Hinn, Creflo Dollar, Joseph Prince (Prince changed his birth name from Xenonamandar Jegahusiee Singh to Joseph Prince during his previous occupation as an IT consultant, just before being appointed senior pastor in 1990.“), Kenneth Hagin Jr., etc. among others. What is the corruption among these people? They had used the preaching of the Gospel to enriched themselves. They had seems to forget what the Scriptures says:

For THE LOVE of money is THE ROOT of ALL evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” 1 Tim. 6:10

Is not the money that corrupt people, is the LOVE OF MONEY. When the money BECAME THEIR god. When the only thing they want and pursue is Material blessings.

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve GOD and MAMMON.” Mat. 6:24

Many famous preachers seen to forget what Jesus said in the same passage of Mat. 6

But SEEK ye FIRST the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Verse 33

What is the sad part? Is that God’s people can’t distinguish between the honest minister from the corrupted. Why? Because of the LACK OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH. This lock of spiritual growth is the result of NOT TEACHING God’s Word but opinion’s of man and fallacies.

The doom of The United States started with the corruption of those who are suppose to bring spiritual growth, repentance, forgiveness, restoration, love one another, etc. These is the main reason why more American are choosing not to follow Christianity. Instead of rescuing those that are lost, we are preaching ourselves every single Sunday in four walls. Nobody is getting saved, healed, or restored, but instead we keep playing a religious game, just kidding ourselves.

As God’s people, we need to go back to the root of the gospel, which is “Humble ourselves and pray” before our God. Then, and only then, we will see people by the thousands repent and change their path.

and seek my face“. observe the same line of thought “The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did UNDERSTAND, and SEEK God.” Psalm 14:2

Another passages that expressed the same principle:

Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually.” 1 Chron. 16:11

But SEEK ye FIRST the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Mat. 6:33

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that DILIGENTLY SEEK him.” Heb. 11:6

SEEK ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked FORSAKE his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isa. 55:6-7

The church has been sucked in by the influence of the world, which had made in-effected our work. What we need to do? Humble, pray, seek our God! there is NO OTHER WAY.

and turn from their wicked ways”. These words are the key of the passage. When we turn wicked, we stopped praying and seeking God’s face, and pride had taken the place of Humbleness. The same idea is expressed in other passages:

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and DEPART from evil.” Prov. 3:7

Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: REMOVE thy foot from evil.” Prov. 4:27

DEPART from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.” Psalm 34:14

THEN will I hear from heaven”. There are 3 conditions stated in this passage before God can hear from Heaven: “Humble yourself, Pray , Seek my face and turn away from wicked ways”. If we do this as it has been expressed in here, God had promised the following:

“I will HEAR from heaven, and will FORGIVE their sin, and will HEAL their land.” 2 Cron. 7:14

Christians are doing the opposite, they want material blessings but they won’t humbled, pray, seek God and turn away from the wicked ways first. It doesn’t matter how much you positive confessions, if you don’t first turn away from evil.

No nation, family, person crumbles in a day. Every nation that had been destroyed or conquered by other, has crumbled within first. The very first step toward destruction is to depart from God’s respect, fear, word and principles. America is not the exception. Every day we see how wickedness and evil is raising, along with hate and division among one to another. Will God send his blessings upon a nation that are pushing Him away? NO.

What is the end of any individual or nation that forgets God? The answer is found in Psalm 9:17:

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and ALL THE NATIONS that forget God.”

God had promised only to the Nation of Israel to protect them AS A NATION, any other nation is subject to their obedience to God’s word in order for them to remain as nations.

“Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a GREAT and MIGHTY NATION, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? Gen. 18:18

God’s purpose with a nation was never more clear and direct than with the nation of Israel. God will fill the nation of Israel with blessings, peace, prosperity and eternal salvation. Gen. 12:1-3; 15:4-6; 17:1-21; 26:3-4; 28:13-15; Deut. 7:6-9; Gal. 3:8-14. Israel is God chosen people and God will fulfill every promise made to them. No other nation have ever receive such promises from God. The identity of the church is as “The body of Christ”, which should never be confuse with Israel, as nation.

The world stage is getting ready for the manifestation of the antichrist, which will happen AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.

“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to ESCAPE all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” Luke 21:36

What THINGS should we pray to escape from? From all the things mentioned in verses 7 to 35, which is a reference to the great tribulation period. If you believe that you need to go through the tribulation period, I honestly wish you the best. It will be a period of time like never has been before. Daniel 12:1

“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Mat. 24:21

We pray that our leaders will change their wicked ways and seek God’s face. But God will judge the church first as it stated in the following passage:

“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it FIRST begin at us, what shall the end be of them that OBEY NOT the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17

Let’s wrapped it with the passage we started with:

If my people, which are called by my name, shall HUMBLE themselves, and PRAY, and SEEK my face, and TURN from their wicked ways; THEN will I HEAR from heaven, and will FORGIVE their sin, and will HEAL their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Until we don’t do our part, God won’t do His!

“Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isa. 55:7

Our country won’t be blessed from our God, until we turn back from our wicked ways, humble ourselves and pray that God will forgive our sins. No man can make this country GREAT AGAIN, ONLY CAN GOD!

Let’s humble ourselves, pray to The God of Heaven, seek His face, and TURN from our wicked ways. Then The God of Heaven will HEAR our prayer and FORGIVE our SINS and HEAL our LAND.

May God bless our country and forgive our sins!
