When a nation loses the prestige that it once had,Â they become inÂ their misfortune the plaything of rivals. So goes the way of the United States, as illustrated by the following. As it becomes a cesspool of poverty, unless the following is read, understood and acted upon. Emitting a treble stench of confusion, pain and vulnerability to personal and national security.
A Lion (Invincible America) worn out with age and feebleness lay breathing his last. First came a boar and with a blow from its flashing tusks took revenge on him for an old injury. Then a bull lowered its horns and gored its enemy’s body. An ass, seeing those attacks delivered with impunity, started kicking the lion’s forehead with its heels.
The lion was on the point of expiring. “It’s was hard enough to bear,” he said, “when those brave animals triumph over me. But as for you, you a shameful blot on creation, to be at your mercy as I die is like dying twice.” (source:Penguin Classics-Fables of Aesop-“The Mighty Fallen,” with emphasis this writer throughout)
For those who are scripture savvy, they know that America was destined for greatness. God first made America’s greatness known in Genesis 17:4 with these statement, “And I will make my covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly. Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked to him saying. As for me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall become the father of many nations. Then the child of promise and of the spirit was born, Galatians 4:28, which says, “Now we. brethren, as Isaac was, are, children of promise. Isaac was the heir to the the Abrahamic covenant. From which came our Judeo-Christian heritage. America as a nation of promise is further developed in later chapters of Genesis and the book of Daniel.Â Resulting inÂ a nation with a legal system based around the Ten Commandments. Along with specific edicts from God that America used to develop its cultural and social envelop. Such characterization for a people comes from Genesis 17:1b, “I am Almighty God, walk before Me blameless.” With the aforementioned in place and an awareness of what God expects of us. This combination became the glory of the United States. “By the God of your father, who will help you. And by the Almighty, who will bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath. Blessings of the breast and of the womb,” Genesis 49:25.
And the American people, imperfect because no one, not even Abram could walk before God blameless. America through her people became the light of the world. Making America a city on a hill whose light could not be hidden. By God’s design America was destined to be that light that gives light to all who are in the house, Matthew 5:14-15. America lived that destiny for a spell but today is becoming the wilted leaf of the Psalmist. Who said, “The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away,” Psalms 1:4.
America may not believe it, but the nation is fast becoming aÂ people that has lost its prestige. Its not because of misfortune though but by deliberate choice. Becoming the plaything of her rivals, those rivals are characterized here as those who mock God.Â Â Who run their tusks, and horns into the sacredness of our Judeo-Christian heritage,Â as if taking revenge for sin condemned. Seeing the City on a Hill, as the enemy because God had the audacity to declare how people should behave. With even theÂ most shamefulÂ of asinine behaviors smashing solid blows to the very heart that allowed America to light the world, determined to defy God. Hiding the city on a hill, Christendoms light, by putting it under a bushel.
With Christendom being on the verge of expiring for lack of oxygen under that bushel. All she can do is remember her victoriesÂ that shaped America as the stalwart example of everything good and profitable. Â Hoping for revival within her ranks, so as not to have to say to her once beaten rivals having toÂ be at your mercy as I die is like dying twice.
So what is killing Christendom, and if Christendom dies, so does America. For starters, its the world of the politician Who never take controversial stance without a sense of public support. President Obama just did that with the federal government announcing that it will no longer defend the nations, “Defense of Marriage Act. A marital entitlement act which provided enumerated benefits to heterosexual couples. Arguing that it creates unconstitutional entitlement denials to homosexuals who marry.
But Obama got it all wrong because marriage is an unexplainable miracle which is the miraculous joining of two opposite sex people, one male and the other female, as one. In Genesis, we find the following. Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one flesh,” Genesis 2:24.
America’s enviable prosperity was based upon its adherence to its Judeo-Christian traditions. Which was not just to frown upon homosexuality, but to condemn such behavior and even criminalizing such behavior. Honored by every state and the District of Columbia. Because Leviticus 18:22 records this law, “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. But America has a new agenda which is to shelf God, declaring marriage is marriage. And people regardless of sexual preference should share the same entitlements. Not so, according to God almighty.
It’s a terrible thing when God gives up on people. The apostle Paul discusses this with us in the first chapter of Romans. Saying, “Wherefore, God gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves, Romans 1:24.
Why would God react in such away? Because they were willing to exchange the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever, Amen, verse 25. Christendom should not allow Obama to exchange the truth of God, for a lie with an ungodly acceptance of what God condemns.
If Christendom fails to stand up against and shut down this acceptance of homosexuality. Then God will further shut down America. Because God is on record with the following. “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they who commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but have pleasure in them that do them, verse 32. Bleak judgment is promised for homosexuals and heterosexuals who find no fault with such behaviors.
Part of what Paul is sharing is explicitly found in verses 26-27. “For this cause God gave them up to vile passions. For even their woman exchangd the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lusts for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”
While sin is an individual matter the shameful error, again for those who are scripture savvy, know sin has a collective fitting consequence. Consequences even upon the unsuspecting innocent because of a failure to condemn what God condemns. And condemnation must be more than vocal, it demands action. Which is the example God established, for his people.
Actually America has died, all that remains is for her remains to turn to dust. Partly because of state and federal legalization of gay marriages. And with, “The Defense of Marriage Act.” shelved it allows one less obstacle for the defense of God’s gift to humanity for those who can’t see homosexuality marriages as a curse. Sweeping away state rights, whose people have determine homosexuality is a condemned curse. Forcing the states to honor gay marriages under the ‘full faith and credit’ clause of the U.S. Constitution. Forcing states like Florida to honor gay marriages that took place in any of the existing jurisdictions that have legalized gay marriages. So the Obama administrations has had the distinction of having killed America. And in so doing, he has surrendered God’s protective shield that guaranteed her power, influenceÂ and prosperity at home and abroad. All that remains is for the nations people to experience God’s displeasure’s. Until a time arrives, when God himself will make America feel the full effect of the lions pain and humiliation. So Christendom must rise up for self’s sake and for the glory of our Creator and Redeemer. And say we’re tired of being tusks, horned and kicked. By restoring ourselves as the City on a Hill whose light can’t be hidden. Serving Jesus as the light to every room that says enter.
Lots of sketched history and prophecy aforementioned. Learn its depth and make it personal knowledge and by experience. Then use it for the defense of Christendom and America.
