The Spiritual State of The Union

The Spiritual State of The Union

A look beyond the physical appearance of our Country through The Bible

Why the increased of hates, violence, promiscuous acts in our society?

What is the spiritual state of our country? As believers, we must be aware of the spiritual conditions of our communities, families, and even our country. This spiritual condition will definitely affect the future of everything we do. The Influence of materialism had sucked in many people and even churches in this country. The priorities of many believers had changed drastically from the dependency on God to the materialism. This shifting is the result of the replacement of the divine principles established by God in His Word for the temporary things of thi world. Churches and ministries had substituted the forms that God had established to provide for the functions of His own work. These humans methods are based on their own abilities just like the pagans nations. Whether We admit this or not, that’s the reality. God provided to Israel for 40 years while they were in the desert. Why can the same God provide for the ministries today? The same ministers that are depending on their own methods to collect the finances, they are the same ministers that preaches about God’s provisions for the nation of Israel.

In the past 10 years we had an increased in the approved laws that have deviated many into a path of destruction. Some of these laws were established by people with no moral values, which had changed the course of many. History can speak for itself but where there has been promiscuity and the lack of moral values, only destruction and desolation remains in their places. Our nation is heading toward an uncertain future because of the choices we are making. The departure from the path of righteousness has blinded many people and they are sinking into their own wicked ways. We used to be a nation proud of our Christian values but slowly these values are diminishing and replace by laws that tolerates and encourages a sinful lifestyle. The God of Heaven is a merciful and loving God but at the same time He is divine nature cannot tolerate the sinful nature that is acquired or pass on since Adam rebellion. The grade of spiritual corruption among people who called themselves “Christians” is raising at an alarming rate. This spiritual corruption is manifested through sexual perversity, which has become normal for many. Every past Empire has fallen and has seen to cease because of their sexual promiscuities. The Most High God has set moral principles and values that men are supposed to follow in order to be under God ruling. How can anyone spend eternity with God if such person is living a corrupted life? It’s established by God a very important principle throughout The Scriptures, every nature will spend eternity where it belongs. The same that the righteous men cannot spend eternity in hell, the same way the wicked men cannot spend eternity with God. That’s the way it is, whether we believe it or not.

Every year the president of The United States makes an speech about the state of the nation but this state is generally used to promotes the president’s agenda. The increase of the materialism ideas and goals is push forward through this state of the union. In the meantime, notice how the increase in violence is reaching an alarming rise. This is just the consequences of our own actions, which eventually will be the result of our own demise. We act as we are a godly nation but the facts of the matter is that we are not. The shifting in the spiritual realm has began and many people had not  noticed it. This includes the so called “spiritual leadership” in our nation. The United States of America is no longer in the right path, dispite of what the politicians say or do. This departure from God’s path is reflected by the divisions among our own nation. We should never forget that spiritual warfare is always reflected on the physical realms. The United States is reflecting the spiritual warfare in their political arena, social values, morality, security and even economically. Donald Trump has promised to “Make America Great again”, but his promises are based on his arrogance, lies and promiscuous life. Many corrupted Christian leaders are supporting Donald Trump, who they claim to be a born again Christian but unfortunately Donald Trump actions says otherwise. I cannot be supportive of a man who is attacking anyone that doesn’t agree with his corrupted mind and ideas. But one day Donald Trump will be place on the balance and he will be judge by The God of righteousness. Just like Belshazzar, king of Babylon, who was judged by God for his promiscuous life and rebellion. Please read Daniel 5. The wickedness of the government will be the doom of The United States, which by the way is not mentioned in The Scriptures. Every wicked nation has crumbled from within. Let me remain you of the end of those who forget God:

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that FORGET God” Psalms 9:17

The increased in violence in our nation is the result of pushing God’s Word and divine principles out of the foundation of this country. People only pray when there’s a catastrophic event, which unfortunately is the only way many people come in unity. The spiritual restoration of our nation cannot start until we are willing to surrender everything to our God. The greatness of The United States won’t be restored by Donald Trump or any other politician, but rather by doing what God has demanded. Observe what it’s stated in The Scriptures:

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall HUMBLE themselves, and PRAY, and SEEK MY FACE, and TURN THEIR WICKED WAYS; then (After theses steps are done) will I HEAR from heaven, and will FORGIVE their sin, and will HEAL their land.” 2 chronicles 7:14

This is how “America gets her greatness back again”, not by relying on the promises of a wicked and arrogant man, like Donald Trump. Why can the so called “Spiritual leaders” understand this? Because they have lost their way by compromising the divine principles established by God. Christian people obeyed more their political parties than the divine principles, which is disgusting and repulsive. As it is stated in Acts 5:29 “We ought to obey God rather than men”. Why we are obeying men rather than God? Because we have lost our sensitivity to God’s fear. Observe what Jesus said in Mat. 15:7-9

“Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me WITH THEIR MOUTH, and HONOURETH ME WITH THEIR LIPS; but THEIR HEART IS FAR FROM ME. But in VAIN (fruitlessly) they do WORSHIP ME, teaching for DOCTRINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN.”

It’s useless to worship God if we are teaching fallacies and false doctrines to those who are following God’s Word. Churches had replaced God’s Word for doctrines of men. As a Christian person, how can I distinguish if the place where I’m attending is corrupted? There are two different ways to know: 1)- by The Holy Spirit. Please read 1 John 4:1; 2:20-27; John 14:26; 16:13-14; 1 Cor. 12:10. 2)- spiritual discernment by spiritual growth. Observe what Rev. 2:2 expressed about this;

“I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:”

Please allow me to bring out the key words in this passage:

“I know thy works” this is what it matters in the end that God knows your work, which involved “achieving God’s purpose in your life”. It’s not what you do but rather what God is doing THROUGH YOU”. There’s a big difference between them, which many people seem not to distinguish.

this is the section of the passage that I would like to explain:

“and thou CANST NOT BEAR” The Greek word used for “bear” is ” bastazō”, which implied “to tolerate, support or to carry upon”. What is the thing which the church of Ephesians couldn’t “bear or tolerated”? Let’s continue the next word of the passage; “”and thou canst not BEAR (tolerate) THEM”. Who are “THEM” in this pasage? Anyone with two fingers of forehead will know that the reference is to  “people within the church who had BECOME EVIL OR CORRUPTED”. This is why we must have spiritual discernment to distinguish between God’s people and satan’s agents. This evil people called themselves “Apostles”, title that was used to promote spiritual corruption among the church. Just because someone calls himself “Apostle or pastor” that doesn’t mean that they were placed by God. How can we make the distinction between the false and the genuine? The passage provided with the answer; “THOU hast TRIED THEM which say THEY ARE APOSTLES, AND THEY ARE NOT”. The believers of the region of Ephesus used the knowledge that they received from Paul to discerned these “pseudo apostles”. They “tried” them and found them “LIARS”. Why believers cannot distinguish between these liars and the genuine? Because they lack of spiritual discernment. People are impressed by the multitudes that follow the preachers but they are not discerning the spiritual source. Satan has diluted the gospel with religious doctrines and cults and has deviated many believers from the truth. The increase of these false ministers is just the beginning of what is predicted in The Scriptures. Who will be able to detect the false doctrines and remain in the truth? Only those who are guided by The Holy Spirit.

There is always a parallel between the spiritual state of the church and the physical realm. The present state of spiritual corruption  of the church has allowed Satan to take control over our cities and make ineffective the work of the church. Satan and his demons had brought confusion and chaos unto this country through corrupted men. The spiritual influence of church has become void and empty. What has provoked this diminished of spiritual influence? The mixed of pagans ideas and doctrines of men with the word of God. Observe what it’s stated in 1 Peter 2:2, which is an advice:

“As newborn babes, desire the SINCERE milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby”

The Greek word used for “sincere” is “adolos”, which mean “unmixed, unadulterated, pure”. How do I know that I’m getting the unadulterated or pure Word of God? It’s very easy to know, the pure and unmixed Word of God will produce “spiritual growth”. This is stated in the last section of the passage above; “that ye MAY GROW THEREBY”. I must clarify that when I mention “the church” I’m not referring to a building or physical structure but rather to the born again believers.

It’s disturbing to see how many people are driven to attend to a church just because they have a big physical structure and not because of the good teaching of God’s Word.

Many of these preachers had made a deal with Satan by receiving material things and they had forgotten the real purpose of their calling. Remember this passages?

“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Mat. 7:22-23

The Word “many” implied “a great number”. Who can prophesied? One that has received this gift of The Holy Spirit. Who can cast out demons in his name? One who has received the power of God. Why Jesus called the work of these people “work of iniquity”? Because they are corrupted in their hearts and they have lost their ways. We are just channels through which God do His work. God doesn’t share His glory.

So, what is the spiritual state of the Union? The raising of sexual promiscuities, which many corrupted ministers are participating. Also, crimes, violence, hates, and corruption among others.

what can we do? What The Scriptures says:

“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 21:34

Is the church watchful or vigilant? Is the church praying always? I will let you answer these questions. One thing is for sure expressed by Jesus in this passage; “be watchful and pray always, that ye may be accounted “WORTHY TO ESCAPE”. Escape what? All the things expressed in chapter 21, which is related to the great tribulation events. If we are vigilant and pray always, we will escape these events. Also in Luke 21:34 is stated ” and to STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN”.

The big challenge for any born again Christian is “to remain until the end”, this is parallel with what Jesus told the believers that dwelled in region of thyatira;

“And he that overcometh, and KEEPETH MY WORKS UNTO THE END, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star.” Rev. 2:26-28

These are believers that didn’t compromise God’s Word with the corrupted system.

May our God protect you from any type of spiritual and physical corruption. Amen!
