2 Kings 1:2-4, Israel’s King Ahaziah had injured himself and wanted to consult a Baal idol to see if he would recover. God asked Elijah to go ask the King, “Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are going off to consult Baal…? Therefore this is what the Lord says: ‘You will not leave the bed you are lying on. You will certainly die!’” A strong comment…yes, but I contend that there is no longer God in the leadership and culture in America. America will not leave the bed it has made.
2 Kings 17:9 “The Israelites secretly did things against the Lord their God that were not right.” And verse 12: “They worshiped idols, though the Lord had said, ‘You shall not do this.’” So we can read further in chapter 17, verse 13 through 23 that due to the sins of the people, they were taken from their homeland into exile.
Ezra 1:1-8, In God’s providence, God used a pagan king, Nebuchadnezzar, to work out His purpose to punish His people by tearing down their nation and hauling them off into exile. Some 70 years later, God moved again using a pagan king, Cyrus of Persia, to release His people from punishment, to go home and rebuild their nation.
America has sinned greatly against God and I believe the turmoil we are currently in, is a bed we have be making for many decades. Within God’s providence, we have two extremely terrible candidates for President; this has been orchestrated by the people of this once great nation. If you vote for Hillary, then you endorse a most corrupt lying criminal; if you endorse Trump, you are locking into a reckless manipulating arrogant developer. We the people are getting what we deserve, two ridiculous presidential candidates.
The balance in government we once had long ago has vanished. The party that gave us the civil rights movement to treat all people equally, the party of the “common man” which used to be the Republicans decades ago, has now joined hands with the Democrats; both are united against the will of the people. The bedrock of the nation, the conservatives, are demonized from both parties. The progressives, following the playbook, Rules for Radicals, have been successful in taking over education and journalism in America; now the people are receiving daily lies from both industries.
We have some extremely smart articulate black men of good morals in our country, but our first black President has ruined race relations and brought our country to the cliff of destruction…a vote for Hillary will surely push us over the cliff. Currently, 47% of the nation supports her. We now have proof of the current administration’s manipulation of the Justice Dept., the FBI, Wall Street, and the insurance & banking industries…all against the people they claim to represent. We have groups endorsing the killing of police officers and wishing for anarchy. The family unit has completely broken down. New non-Biblical definitions of marriage and family are emerging. Invented ideas of sexual identity, promoted by a sinful government, are confusing our young people. The nation’s entertainment industry endorses and promotes sinful lifestyles and practices. Once called “foul language”, now cursing is thought to be “normal” conversation with both TV programs and in the everyday speech of the masses. A F-word variation is now being heard in fast food advertising. Everyone with any sense of exposure will agree that the nation’s morals are in the toilet.
We have democrats hammering Trump on his verbal nonsense about women, while men in every locker-room in America are doing the same stupid thing. All the while, the democrats still hail their king Bill who did so much worse in the Oval Office! The lying on both sides of the aisle is sinful. The massive deficit spending on both sides of the aisle is sinful. The idea that mankind can actually change world climate is arrogant and sinful. It makes us the same idolatrous people as those who tried to reach Heaven by their own power [thus being equal to God] by building the Tower of Babel (Gen. 11).
This is all within God’s providence! I have always tried to be a positive guy, but God is laying this weight upon me now. I am sorry to write such a post, but we are now getting what we deserve just like the Hebrews in Jerusalem so long ago! God used a pagan king, Nebuchadnezzar back then; who is God using today? Get on your knees and pray for forgiveness! Pray for our children and our grandchildren, for they will need to repent and rebuild the nation after we pay for our sins. We are leaving them a massive un-repayable debt; how are we going to benevolently take care of the broken people in the world when we are so broken ourselves?
