Losing Freedoms to Bondage


In John 8, the scribes and Pharisees began arguing with Jesus while he was in the temple. Jesus said to them, “If you continue in my word you are my disciples indeed; and you shall know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” The Pharisees and scribes answered him saying, “We are Abraham’s seed and were never in bondage to any man.” How could they make such a claim? At that moment in history, the Jews were under Roman rule. They were in bondage to the Romans, or should I say they were the servants of Rome.

In Proverbs 22:7 it says, “The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” No matter how you try to structure a society, the rich will always rule. Chavez in Venezuela likes to portray himself as one of the people, but look at how he lives. He lives as a rich man. He is rich. He has made himself rich at the expense of others. Certainly everyone in the United States can see how President Obama lives. He takes advantage of all the things rich people have always done. He lives like the rich always live. He is rich. The rich will always rule over the poor. That was the way it was in the Soviet Union and that is the way it is in every country today. When people who are poor become a ruler, they make themselves rich. They will live in the excesses of wealth; and more often than not, they will do anything to keep themselves in power. All you have to do is look at how long people elected to the U.S. Senate stay in the Senate. They love the wealth and power they get from that office.

The time of excesses in the U.S. is coming to an end. God has begun to bring us down because we have abandoned Him to seek our own pleasures apart from him. This country became great because God at one time was honored throughout our society. That is no longer the case and so His judgment leading to our destruction has begun. Americans like to think as the scribes and Pharisees thought by believing they are not in bondage to anyone nor ever will be. However, the borrower is servant to the lender. We are in bondage to China and other countries because they hold our debt. At any time they demand payment, our financial system will totally collapse. When George H. W. Bush was president, the Soviet Union collapsed because it ran out of money. Its mighty military ceased to exist. There was only a shadow of what it once was militarily still operating. When our financial system collapses, so will our military. We will truly be at the mercy of others when our military can no longer function as it once did. There will be no money to pay the salaries of our military personnel and so they will be out of a job.

Along with being a servant as we are to the Chinese now and to a much greater extent in the future, freedoms are lost. As the United States federal government has increased in power, our freedoms have been lost more and more each passing year. The government once served us: now we serve the U.S. government. As we fall into increased bondage to the Chinese and other countries that hold our debt, we will lose even more freedoms. You never gain freedom from being in bondage. This country is spending money so fast; it is racing towards more and more bondage since we have to continue borrowing more and more money. There is no way out of this crisis. We have dug a hole too deep.

Yet, there actually is hope. Jesus said, “If you continue in my word you are my disciples indeed; and you shall know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” We as a nation must turn back to God. It is only through Him and His son Jesus that we can be made free from this coming financial collapse. God is telling the people in this country to repent and turn back to Him. We only have a short time before it will become too late. Once it becomes too late; everything expressed by God in the book “Jeremiah’s Prophecies: The End of the United States” will come to pass. That is something that is scary to think about. Do you want future bondage by continuing to believe because that we are America and thus cannot fall or be in bondage to anyone, or will you begin to open your eyes to see that turning back to God is the only way this country can be saved from the disaster that is fast approaching us?
