In America, few wonder, how many people think about God in a serious manner? Like does God really shape individual destines from birth to the grave? Answer:A handful, maybe. If more had, America would be a very different place.
From the cradle an infant’s bed mounted on rockers. Mom and Dad should sing to their child biblical nursery rhymes. Because that baby had just experienced his or her birthing experience, when God breathed the breath of life into that child. A truth God shared with us through his friends. The Psalmist said of God, “You send forth your Spirit, and they are created.” Text:Psalm 104:30. It first occurred in what was truly paradise And the LORD God formed man out of the dust of the ground, and breath into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. Text:Genesis:2:7.
That is the beginning place for spiritual growth because that new born had a supernatural experience with God Almighty. And is very aware, of his Creator. Allowing for those biblical nursery rhymes to nourish that new born spirit for the glory of his or her creator. Had it been done faithfully by enough parents; America would be very different today.
Concluding with this admonishment, remember now your creator in the days of your youth, before the difficult days come, and the ears draw near when you say, “I have no pleasure in them.” Ecclesiastes 12:1a. From that think not so much the child’s physical journey to maturity but rather think that child’s spiritual journey to maturity. Today who really takes time to think about ones destiny that was God ordained from that cradle that brings us to where we are today.
Because it didn’t happen with enough spiritual volume from infancy to adulthood, America is a very ugly place spiritually. In other words the nations spiritual decadent apostasy has reached the heavens and there is no remedy for America. Other than total annihilation for their America, and for the handful, who weep over the destruction of God’s modern day Daughter of Babylon. Why weep? Because, we failed to save their America and ours too.
Previous discussions have established the birthing of America. Also establishing the concept for the Daughter of Babylon as the United States. Because the United States isn’t directly named in God’s sacred infallible word. Instead God the perfect picturesque artist took another ancient Babylonian kingdom he destroyed under King Nebuchadnezzar. And drew a parallel, by calling the United States the Daughter of Babylon, whom he will also destroy.
Fair question why, because the United States like the new born in a cradle had a supernatural birth. Destined to birth a world for the glory of God with all of its spiritual appendages. Instead the United Sates violated God’s sacred injunction.
Here is one of God’s sacred injunctions, there are others. For this discussion, we’ll consider on of them. So you shall not pollute the land where you are; for blood defiles the land, and no atonement can be made for the land, for the blood shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it. Therefore do not defile the land which you inhabit, in the midst of which you inhabit, in the midst which I dwell; for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel. Texts:Numbers 35:33-34.
A short explanation about the children of Israel. In Christ there is neither Jew nor Gentile for all are one in Christ, and thus Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Texts:Galatians 3:28-29.
Understand this, the United States means nothing to Jesus. What matters to Jesus is the church. And he like he said in Numbers is among us. John saw seven golden lampstands. In the midst of them was one like the Son of Man. Later it was explained to John that the lampstands are the seven churches. And in their midst is Jesus, even today. Texts:Revelation 1:12-20.
Back from that little diversion to consider the shedding of blood. For the shedding of blood, the millions of babies aborted for the convenience of their parents. The number of murders committed through out the United States. And the blood shed, because of her numerous wars.
For those sins, here is God’s response. Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?” And he said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother cries out to me from the ground.” Genesis 4:9-10. Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God, he made man. Text:Genesis 9:6.
Other nations are not exempt from God’s sacred imperatives. They have, and will continue to be dealt with. But as the time of the church ends, America will be first. Why? Recall previous discussions as America being his golden cup. His battle ax to hammer the entire earth. Not as a spiller of blood, but rather as lamp of his light at home and abroad.
