The United States Under the Curse
In Deuteronomy 28, the blessings are listed for a nation that puts God first in its society. More importantly, the curses are listed for those nations that take God out of their societies. Unfortunately, the United States falls under the latter mentioned category. If one examines Deuteronomy 28, one will find the descriptions of all the curses inflicting a nation far exceed the number of blessings a nation would receive if it placed God first.
When the United States was founded, our founding fathers were seeking to establish a nation under God. Congress opened every session with prayer; a practice that for the moment is still practiced today. This alone strongly contradicts the story line by many today that our founding fathers did not want religion associated with the government at all. God was the cement our founding fathers recognized to be what was needed to hold our society together. Today, the godless rule and conflict abounds. There is a division in our society today that is the greatest we have had since the War Between the States or the Civil War (whichever term you wish to use). All of this conflict or division comes from one source: good versus evil; dark versus light; Satan versus God. Our divisions stem from spiritual differences between two distinct groups of Americans. Liberal or progressives who run our country (whichever you choose to call them) are hostile to God. Most conservatives want to keep God in our society although there are a few conservatives who are also hostile to God. God has been thrown out of our society by the ruling elite and especially by the courts these last several decades. We have now already begun to reap the consequences of throwing God out of our society.
When this country was operating under God, we were receiving the blessings of Deuteronomy 28. Deuteronomy 28:2, 4-5, 7, 10, 12-13 says, “All these blessings shall come on you—if you shall hearken to the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground, and the fruit of your (livestock). Blessed shall be your basket and your store (our financial and natural resources). The Lord shall cause your enemies—to be smitten before your face. And all the people of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of you. The Lord shall open to you his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain to your land in his season, and to bless all the work of your hand: and you shall lend to many nations, and you shall not borrow. And the Lord shall make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above and not beneath; if you hearken to the commandments of the Lord your God.”
Today though, we are now under the curses of Deuteronomy 28. Deuteronomy 28: 15, 17-18, 20, 25, 27, 44-45 says, “It shall come to pass, if you will not hearken to the voice of the Lord your God—all these curses shall come upon you, and overtake you. Cursed shall be your basket and your store (our financial and natural resources). Cursed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your land, the increase of your (livestock). The Lord shall send upon you cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed—because of the wickedness you practice, whereby you have forsaken me. The Lord shall cause you to be smitten before your enemies (we fled Vietnam, Somalia and are now talking about leaving Afghanistan). The Lord will smite you with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, where you cannot be healed (AIDS for one example). The stranger shall lend to you, and you shall not lend to him: he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. Moreover all these curses shall come upon you, and shall pursue you, and overtake you, until you be destroyed; because you hearken not to the voice of the Lord your God.”
Today we are borrowing from China and other nations. We are the borrower and not the lender. We are the one in dire financial straits when payment becomes due. There is only one way out. “Jeremiah’s Prophecies: The End of the United States” tells us what awaits us in the future if we do not repent now as a nation and turn back to God. Electing the Republicans to office in November will not save us. Repentance is the only chance we have. We are living under the curses and Deuteronomy 28:45 says, “All these curses shall come upon you, and shall pursue you, and overtake you, until you be destroyed; because you hearken not to the voice of the Lord your God.”
