Where Is America Headed, part 2
You may understandably object to the idea of God judging America. After all, God is love, right? You're correct! But do you know what attribute of God is even more prominent that love? Holiness! That's a quaint, lost idea in these times. Among many things it means He's perfect and cannot accept sin in His presence. We read in Rev. 4:8 that angelic beings at God's throne never cease proclaiming God's holiness -- not His love, omniscience, or eternity, but His holiness. Near the beginning of the Bible in Exodus, God tells Moses, who's approaching Him appearing as fire in the burning bush, to take off his shoes because he's on holy ground. Holiness is the number one, the top, the most important attribute of God.
God has ordained that people will get what they ultimately want and insist on. America can't be bothered that its sin offends a holy God who's blessed and warned this country so much, so America, it's payback time and get ready. We read in Numbers 35:33, 34 -- "So you shall not pollute the land in which you are; for blood pollutes the land and no expiation (that's like forgiveness) can be made for the land for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it. You shall not defile the land in which you live ..." In Rev. 16:6 we read about one of His final judgments against earth's sin: "...for they poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink. They deserve it...."
As I stated above, God's judgment on America will include but not be limited to nuclear war. I don't have any idea when the axe will be swung against the tree, but get ready, it could come in 2010!
As a minimum do these: 1. Pay off all debts and when you're debt free hold off on large purchases. Keep the cash on hand as you consider a radically different future. 2. Strengthen your marriage, for post-judgment conditions will strain all relationships. Related to this, if there's a relationship you've got to fix, do it now! 3. Throw out that TV now and start relating to the real world more. Read more, talk to people more, find out what's really going on with others around you. 4. Get your children out of dangerous, under-performing public schools where truth is ignored. Homeschool. Public education may not exist in post judgment America where large cities will be nuked and millions of survivors won't have health care.
5. Learn how to garden, get more hand tools if needed (you can buy them used), store water, and get access to more room to garden. Look for non-hybrid seeds, that is, those that can indefinitely reproduce future crops. 6. Acquire and know how to use firearms. The right to self defense is implied and never denied in the Bible. 7. Acquire low-tech skills such as first aid, fire building, basic carpentry, food storage, etc. 8. With nuclear explosions wiping out the electricity grids in many areas, get alternative power. Search the internet for simple wind turbines you can build to save over costlier new models. If there's no electricity, how will you get water? 9. Make an inventory of your personality, education, assets, relationships, and strengths. What can you do to be more useful or what can you give in bartering? You need to understand that in post judgment America, you and/or your family will be largely on your own.
Above all, should you feel God is entering your life, don't resist Him. Yield to Him as Savior. He will become your shield and guide. Repent and ask Him to forgive you of your sins, and you can find out more about that in the rest of this article. Get to know Him by reading the Bible through, cover to cover, every year and use a formal translation such as King James, New King James, New American Standard, or the English Standard Version. Other translations (called dynamic translations and paraphrases) are of questionable accuracy or so vague as to be worth little. Spend an extra $20 for a study version of any of those translations for it'll be well worth it. Start a daily prayer habit, ask around for where there's a sound Bible church in your area, and join it and get involved now. You'll grow and learn as you participate.
