Why Should God Bless America?
On September 11th, 2001—the unthinkable happened—two high-jacked jumbo jets flew into the World Trade Towers in New York city—killing over 5,000 innocent people. This was one of the saddest times in American history. A sleeping giant had been awoken to the reality that we were NOT invincible. I am often reminded of those little gumball/toy machines that my kids like to buy stuff from. You put in a quarter, turn the knob, and out comes a small plastic ball with a toy in it. Sadly, many people are living in a little plastic ball in their minds. This is exactly what's wrong with so many Americans...we are living in a little bubble...ignorant of the reality that exists around us.
I love America!!! This is my home. I believe in voting (not Republican or Democrat) and pledging allegiance to the flag. I am sickened by those who undermine and burn the United States flag. I once heard a military veteran say that the reason he went to war was to have a right to burn the U.S. flag if he wanted. Though I understand his philosophy, it is simply wrong to desecrate the very symbol of our freedom. I see entertainers and singers on TV wearing the U.S. flag as t-shirts and shorts—this is not good. One man told me that he taught his son NOT to pledge allegiance to the U.S. flag because you shouldn’t pledge to anything unless your willing to die for it. He said he certainly wouldn’t be willing to die for this country.
I disagree wholeheartedly and think he should move to another country. People like him have become selfish and are ignorant of what has brought about our freedom. Our flag is the symbol which represents the lives of over one million men who died in battle to preserve our freedom (and might I add, much envied freedom). People are dying in the oceans and in boxcars trying to migrate to this blessed land of freedom. Why? To have what the homeless man on the street has...opportunity and freedom. God has been good to the United States. The old saying still applies, “If you don’t love it, leave it.” Let every American be proud to be an American...one nation under God...in God we trust.
Nevertheless, someone asked me if I thought the World Trade Center disaster was God’s judgment on America. Wow!!! What a question. I don’t believe that God directly caused this tragedy. God is NOT a big ogre up in Heaven waiting to pound on our heads when we do wrong. On the contrary, the Bible says in 2nd Peter 3:9 that God is...
God does NOT want to see harm come to anyone. God is a loving God as well as a Holy God Who’s holiness demands justice. God has given each of us a “free-will.” Some folks “will” to do good and others “will” to do bad. In the case of the World Trade Center, some people decided to do bad. Adam and Eve were given a free-will by God, they chose to do bad and paid for it. We also must pay for our own sins, just as those terrorists who killed thousands of people will have to stand trial before God Almighty. I do NOT believe that God caused those jets to fly into those buildings in New York, I believe that some wicked people acted by their own free-will.
I do believe however that America is in sad spiritual condition. There is no way that the abortion (murder) of tens-of-millions of little children can be justified before God their Creator. God began those lives, and men have no right to stop them. The legalized gambling, liquor, and prostitution sickens God. The nudity and sex-crazed garbage that pours out of Hollywood and floods theaters and TV screens makes Sodom look like a nice place to live. I believe God is angry over these iniquities as well as many other sins in this nation.
We have become soft and vulnerable as a nation where criminals have guns but the innocent don’t. We want to pretend that everything is going to get better over time (through education and enlightenment), but history has shown that mankind is destined to war and destruction. An example: If I leave my car doors open, should I marvel that something is stolen? Likewise, should we marvel that a group of people can take over a jet plane where there is NO security or protection onboard? Whether we like it or not, war is a fact of life because men are the children of wrath,
“...and were by nature the CHILDREN OF WRATH, even as others” (Ephesians 2:3).
Mankind is sinful and prone to evil. We are prone to hot-tempers, hatred, jealousy, anger and revenge. We are not exempt from terrorism in the United States.
Also, We have a sickening form of false religion in society today where all people of all faiths are uniting in worship of an undefined, multi-faith, all-purpose God. It is a fictitious God that adapts to any faith, much like the God of the Masons and the New Age Movement. We hear much talk of “spiritual experiences” and “spiritual energy” from such people as Oprah Winfrey. This new religion (which is NOT really new) says, “Hey, I don’t care what you believe about God, let’s all just unite together for a common cause.” The problem is that this has become a religion in itself—the religion of "Humanism." It was this same humanism that brought down God’s hand of Judgment at the Tower of Babel. Unfortunately, you can believe ANYTHING and still be a member of this humanistic religion.
Humanism teaches that mankind is inherently good (not sinful), that he is able to resolve his own problems through the unity of human effort (not through God), that the Word of God is not to be taken seriously. I recently heard President George Bush Jr. quoting out of the Koran to impress the Muslims. I’ve yet to hear him quote God’s Word. Humanism allows you to believe anything you want, so long as you unite with your fellow human beings in the cause of humanity itself—unity. Do you see what I mean? I heard Bush say that there are many religions which lead to God. President Bush is wrong...the ONLY way to God the Father is through the Son, Jesus Christ (John 14:6). That’s all we hear in the news today—the “unity” of all world nations to form a peaceful, economically stable world government.
I'm NOT against unity, not at all. What I am against is being united over error. I would rather be divided over truth, than united by error. Unfortunately, this is not politically correct nowadays. The heathen world propagates the belief that we should all be united...NO MATTER WHAT! This is Humanism, not what the Bible teaches. "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you," (2nd Corinthians 6:17). Every believer is to separate from unbelievers. Satan is the god of this world, we are simply pilgrims passing through. We must keep our eyes upon the blessed Savior, Jesus Christ (our faithful God and Creator).
The Scriptures foretold of all this my friend. The stage is being set for the antichrist to come. The united one-world government is being formed. When will Jesus return? We simply do NOT know!!! However, I personally believe it will be soon because of the fact that we have seen technologies in the last hundred years which mankind has never seen (all in one hundred years!). There were no planes, jets, cars, trucks, computers, electricity, phones, radios, TV's, microwave ovens or nuclear weapons two hundred years ago. Mankind will destroy himself with all these new toys (such as nuclear weapons) if the Lord doesn’t return. This is only my opinion but I am confident that the Lord will return in my lifetime, if I live an average lifespan.
In conclusion, I believe God’s judgment is inevitably approaching the United States for our iniquities (the acceptance of sodomy as a legitimate lifestyle, the murder of tens-of-millions of children through godless abortion, legalized liquor and gambling, the breakdown of the family, the humanistic public school system, the godless filth out of Hollywood, pornography, the spiritual wickedness in high places, etc). How long can we continue down this path before God says, “enough!” How long can we continue before we bring judgment upon ourselves?
I won't say that the World Trade Center disaster was God’s judgment on America; however, we are due for something bad if we continue in sin. We claim to be "one nation under God" while murdering the unborn. We say “in God we trust” while allowing pornography to infiltrate every avenue of advertising and entertainment. Do we really trust in God??? I think not. The God we serve in America is the God of humanism (man is his own god)!!!
Recently in Chicago, a street was named in honor of Hue Hefner (founder of Playboy Inc). Another building in Chicago was given landmark status in honor of a sodomite who lived there in the 1920’s. God will remove his hand of protection from this nation if we don’t repent of our evil ways. We are going over a moral waterfall very rapidly in America—I fear there is no turning back at this point. God has blessed America—I pray that He will continue to do so.
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD” (Psalm 33:12).
Praise Jesus Christ, our God and Savior!!!
I don't believe we should be hateful as Christians. I don't believe it is ever right to discriminate against someone for any reason. The Bible teaches that "...God is no respecter of persons" (Acts 10:34). We are to love all people, regardless. However, the ungodly will never be accepted by the righteous, nor will the righteous be accepted by the ungodly. What fellowship hath darkness with light? I am simply saying that God will NOT bless a nation, a city, a company, a church, or an individual that continues in sin. It is NOT discrimination because we preach against sin; anymore than it is discrimination because all the kooks, quacks and queers blast and attack Bible-believing, Christ-honoring Christians (and they do!). The Bible makes a clear statement on this matter, "An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked." (Proverb 29:27).
The just and the unjust will NEVER unite in perfect harmony--the Bible tells us so. Do you see why the Bible is getting less and less popular these days? It surely does NOT lend a hand to the New Age agenda. The Bible is the enemy of the heathen world. I'm not talking about the liberal, watered-down, wishy-washy corrupt bibles like the NIV and NKJV. I'm talking about the King James Bible of 1611.
Is it any wonder the the NIV removes the word "sodomite" completely? It's the most popular bible on the market today. How sad that so many folks have no regard for God's Law. They have their freedom in the United States, just as do all Bible-believing Christians--But they misuse their freedom to commit sin and plunge our nation into judgment.
We're in Trouble with God!
The battle today is between man's freedom and God's Law, between man's word and God's Word. Men say they have the freedom to practice sodomy, God says they don't. Women say they have they right to murder their children, God says they don't. God bless America??? He already has my friend, but for how long? We are so very blessed in this nation. Did you know that 1.2 billion people around the world are surviving on less than $1 a day? (less than one dollar!). Unbelievable! We have been blessed friend! Unfortunately, many folks are squandering their freedom which was handed to them on a silver-platter. We owe our freedom to God and the men who died to secure it!
This nation was established on Biblical principles; unfortunately, we are fast leaving those principles. America today is more communist than ever. More and more people are expecting the government to take care of them (or help them out). More and more the government is controlling our lives. We are living in a day where the government can force parents to drug their own children against their will (even non-essential drugs).
We are living in a day where a man is guilty until proven innocent (injustice). This nation's days are numbered. Even now, China and other communist nations are eyeing America. Millions of terrorists hate our very existence. Even our own citizens are turning against us.
The Godless public school system has removed God and His Word thoroughly. Of course, kids are still being taught the lie of evolution as if it were a fact (which is nothing more than a mere theory). On and on, our nation is in big trouble. Predictions have been made that TV (hellivision) producers, will be airing full-frontal nudity within 2 years.
America is sex-crazed; sex, sex, sex, money, money, money. How long can we continue before God says, "enough!" God did not tolerate the sins of Sodom (and they had no Bible, nor preachers). Today, we are surrounded by preaching and the the Word of God, yet multitudes of society spit in God's face.
The greatest sin of our day is indifference! All these talk and entertainment shows invite anybody and everybody onto their program. It's all a big joke to them. Nothing really seems to matter anymore when it comes to decency and morality. The Bible says, "Fools make a mock at sin" (Proverb 14:9). On a recent Entertainment Tonight show, rock legend, Gene Simons of "KISS", bragged about having sex with 4,600 women throughout his career.
Satanist--Ozzy Osbourne--worshipped by millions around the world--blasphemes God in all his music. MTV just signed Ozzy up for a $20 million deal (because people can't get enough of him)--to continue his Osbourne Series. Ozzy with his upside down crosses, antichrist lyrics and freak image has weaseled his way into the hearts of people.
Many people feel like losers so they can naturally relate to a guy like "Ozzy"--he's weird, an outcast, a freak, strange, rejected, controversial, etc, etc. So many people don't like themselves, their life, their job, their spouse, etc, etc. This is the nature of the materialistic society in which we live. On the contrary, the Bible teaches us to be "content with such things" as we have. The first thing that every child of God must learn is to love him or her self, and to be content with who God has made us. We are the object of God's great love, created in His image.
God has blessed America mightily, it's up to us whether or not He continues to do so. I believe that God has spared judgment on America BECAUSE of all the Bible-believing, Christ-honoring Christians who serve the Lord with fear and trembling. Thank God for the Independent Baptist Churches across America. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ spoke 50 billion galaxies into existence on the 4th day of creation? Do you not realize that the universe has no end?
Do you realize that Jesus Christ has no beginning and no end? He is the beginning and the end! Friend, life is not something to be squandered away. Do you not realize that trillions of years won't even be the beginning of eternity? This should scare you greatly if you know not the Lord Jesus as Savior? Have your sins been forgiven? Are you a born-again child of God?
