Amerika


Statue of LibertySome people consider America to be like Rome in its final days.  We are seeing the collapse of our economy and the erosion of all civil liberties and what are supposed to be unalienable rights.  Yet today every right that has been given to us by God Himself has been denied to the American people and repackaged only to be given back to us as rights coming from the government.  With this they give us fees, to exercise rights that our forefathers exercised without any restriction or permission from the government.  If we do not pay the fees and exercise our rights as still coming from God and not the state, we are fined.  If we still will not give up the antiquated ideas found in the constitution we will be imprisoned and our land taken away.

There are many good blogs that deal with the transition we are witnessing from America to Amerika, so I will not go into great detail here.  But I do want to ask, where is the church in all of this?

The church that is supposed to be the people of God have fallen asleep and not defended the most grounded government in God’s word the world has ever seen.  Instead we have been to busy preaching wealth based in the age of deceit where not even the banks are held accountable to GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Practices).  Just as long as we can make a buck and say God did it while we keep lining the pockets of those preachers of a false gospel.

In a recent Barna poll it was revealed that 8 out of 10 youths in Evangelical churches have no idea how their faith fits into everyday life.  No Idea!  The church is so asleep at the wheel that we can not even train our own children in the simple principles of faith by which to guide their lives.  How are we ever to defend against the ever faster growing movement in this nation to turn us into a godless communist state?  How are we ever going to train our children in the godly principles outlined in our founding documents if we can not teach our own youth God’s word?

The church has not only failed this nation which we inherited, we have failed the spiritual generations after us.  We are leaving a lousy spiritual inheritance for our children and a nation based upon godless communist principles.

The irony is we think Jesus is coming back for us His bride when we have failed our children and failed our nation.  We have no right!  We are not the blameless and spotless bride that Christ is coming for.  Who else is to blame for the state of our country and the state of the youth of the church?  Do you really think God is not going to hold us accountable?  We don’t know how to defend the ideas of our country, build the faith in our own youth or even understand the responsibilities of being a believer.  But who will be appalled and care anyway?

Move along folks.  Nothing to see here.

Welcome to Amerika.

  1. Good post. I believe America has played and continues to play a huge role in God’s plan for the world…either through his desired will, decreed will, or permissive will. God rules! America and the globe is his. It is His footstool.

    According to Daniel 4:17, He is reminding Nebuchadnezzar that God determines and places rulers ‘Da 4:17 ‘This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men. ‘ With this one scripture, God has declared that only flesh (basest of men) sits in the seat of rulership over nations…by the appointment of God. . And the Shepherd rules only over the Sheep/Bride/Church. All by the foreknown desired will, decreed will, and permissive will of God. We must never lose sight of the fact that polical parties are not responsible for evil nor for the brokenness in Amerika. Lucifer is his name!!! It is Lucifer himself who desires to hide himself and allow others to be blamed for the evil in the world. We cannot judge nor complain since it is the most High that ‘ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.’ He hardened Pharoah’s heart for the purpose of ‘proving’ His power to beloved Israel by way of miraculous deliverance. Thus, we cannot judge Pharoah. It was a God thing.

    I deeply believe that God continues to rule and that ‘Americka’ remains under the authority of God. God gives nations the rulers they desire. And Amerika desires carnality since she is the world and not the Bride. She is the physical world but the Bride/Church, though in her, is not part of her. We will never turn the world into the Church. While God desires to be the Shepherd over the whole world, He actually is only the Shepherd over His sheep. God already spoke His heart when He showed that most will take the broad path to destruction and only ‘few’ will walk through the narrow gate. While God desires that none perish but that all come to repentance….Word reveals that it doesn’t happen. We are asked to come out of her and be a separate people. The Bride is alive and well!!!!

    It is God who is removing the restraints from Lucifer and allowing time to be fulfilled which brings us closer to the Second Coming of our Lord. A good thing! These days of changing ‘times and laws’ are signs for us to focus our hearts, eyes, and ears on the Righteous and pure Father. Like Lot …my heart is desiring to sit at the gate and look outward for the messengers of deliverance who are surely not far away. My heart’s eyes cannot look on the evil. God has put my own evil before my eyes and for many months I have been going through a serious time of painful growth and confrontation. Once I looked at the sins of the world and bemoaned their failures. Now I only bemoan my own. Now I understand that I must be the one to ‘take up the cross and follow Him.’ I now know I must be the one to Love Him with all my ‘heart, soul, and mind’ and to love ‘neighbor’ as self. I can’t change Amerika but I must allow God to change me.

    Rather than spending my energy and grief on the evil of the day …and on the things I cannot change…, I am sincerely working on me. I have no power over any person other than me. For the first time in my life, I am desiring to be His servant hands, feet, and heart in a dark and dying Amerika and world.

    I surely didn’t intend the ‘comment’ to be so lengthy. My heart just spilled forth. Please feel free to read and delete.
