The United States: Reaping What it has Sown

May 10, 2013

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6: 7) God cannot lie. He says whatever you do; an equivalent act will come your way. The word mock in this verse means “to sneer at.” It basically means people do not believe what God says and sneers at it. But God stresses that whatever you sow in your life will bring the good or bad you have done back your way. The United States these last several decades has sowed seeds of evil, and this evil is coming back upon us, today. We are reaping today what we have sown.

There are two examples I want to give you of the law of sowing and reaping from the Bible. The first is what happened in King David’s life. God called David a man after his own heart. God made him the king and the direct ancestor of Jesus. David though had some bad qualities. He murdered a man after he impregnated the man’s wife. He sowed seeds of adultery and murder and the consequences were grave. God forgave David of his sin, but the law of sowing and reaping took hold and brought disaster upon his personal life and the kingdom.

What happened? First, the baby from this adulterous affair died. Then, in the coming years, David’s own son deposed him as king for a period of time and slept with all the concubines he left behind in Jerusalem. His son then was killed and David returned to Jerusalem as king. All this pain and agony came from the original act of sleeping with another man’s wife and then killing him secretly. He reaped what he had sowed. God forgiving him did not stop this law from bringing to pass all the consequences of David’s act.

The second example is in the book of Judges. The son of Gideon, Abimelech, killed all his brothers which numbered 70 except one who escaped. The men of Shechem aided him in this treachery and made him king at this point. The one who escaped, Jotham, then went to the top of the hill and proclaimed a prophetic parable saying basically, Abimelech and the men of Shechem would reap what they sowed.

Not many years passed before men rose up against Abimelech who were dissatisfied with his rule. They fortified the city against Abimelech and he came to fight against them. He slew all those in the city and sowed the land with salt. He then went and fought against another city where a woman from a tower threw a rock on his head and mortally wounded him. Abimelech then had his armor bearer kill him so it could not be said a woman killed him. Abimelech and the men of Shechem reaped what they had sowed.

The United States has been throwing God out of the public arena. It has legalized the murder of its unborn children. It continues down the path of allowing more and more vile things as acceptable. It is sowing seeds of destruction. We cannot murder millions of babies and think we will not reap the consequences. The law of sowing and reaping cannot be broken. If millions of babies have been murdered for pleasure seeking and convenience, the law of sowing and reaping means millions of us are going to die somewhere down the road. We are at the door of seeing this come to pass before our eyes.

There are prophets out there like Kim Clement who believe we will not reap the consequences of our actions; but he is deceived. God can forgive us and turn things around, but the spilling of blood requires more blood to be spilt. The blood of those murdered unborn babies cries out from the earth to be avenged. God is the avenger of all such acts. That is why there is a law of sowing and reaping. This law brings justice to those who have been wronged. No one can escape this law. No nation can escape this law. We have begun to reap all the actions we have committed starting many decades ago. We can only hope that this nation will repent and give us an avenue of avoiding total destruction. God is a shield to those in a time of disaster when they turn to him for protection. He can soften the consequences of the actions we have sown all these decades. However, we can never totally escape the seeds of destruction we have sown. There will always be some consequences.

It is time to start sowing seeds of edification for this nation. We have to stand up and put God back into his place. Without these seeds, there can be no salvation for this country. If one does not sow the seed, then there is no seed to grow to produce the crop that seed produces. If we want good to happen to this nation, then we have to use force against all the power of the enemy and sow good seeds back into our society. The enemy will try to stop us from sowing these seeds, so we have to use force to sow these seeds that build up our nation rather than tear it down.

This means we have to rise up against what is going on in this country now, and demand the principles of God be followed.  We have to rule instead of a corrupt government or a set of people making up the Supreme Court who are so detached from reality, they do not realize what they are doing to all the people in this country. These people in the government do not have to live under the very rules they establish. They have their own health system, and yet want to put a system upon us under which they would never live. Rise up today, Church! We do not have time for you to dawdle.

It’s Time for the Church to Stop Retreating

May 5, 2013

Fifty years ago, the Church in the United States allowed prayer to be removed from our schools. Forty years ago, the Church allowed abortion to become legal permanently when they did not refuse to accept the Supreme Court’s ruling to legalize abortion. Twenty years ago, the Church allowed Bill Clinton to let homosexuals stay in the military if they kept their mouth’s closed. In these last several years, homosexual marriage has come into being and their agenda continues to progress more and more with each passing year. What was once a crime is now being lauded by the media and Obama as a right and a noble act. Also, it is a heroic act to come out. Do these people know the true definition of heroism?

God says, “You shall not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is abomination. “(Leviticus 18: 22) God also says in Leviticus 20: 13, “If a man also lies with mankind, as he lies with a woman; both of them have committed an abomination.” For those who think the Old Testament no longer applies, Romans 1: 27 says, “Likewise, also the men leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men doing those things which are unseemly and receiving in themselves that consequence of their act of error which is right.”

Now this blog piece is not about attacking homosexuals, but it is about the Church allowing what is clearly stated as sin to come to pass in this country and not stand up against it. God loves every homosexual, but their sin is destructive to them and any society that accepts it. We all can see the decay of our society leading us to total destruction. In every area, the people who hate God are succeeding in throwing him out of the public arena and allowing acts like abortion and homosexuality to grow and flourish. No society has ever lasted when immorality rules the roost. We cannot be an exception, although there are some prophets out there who refuse to believe God would judge us just like he judged the kingdoms of Israel and Judah more than 2500 years ago for going down the exact same path we are going down today.

In Hebrews 6, we are told it is impossible for God to lie. Also Number 23: 19 says, “God is not a man that he should lie.” This means he is not like man who can and does lie. God does not lie. If he said something in the past, then it applies to today. He said, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6: 7) Hosea 8: 7 says, “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.” This means that those who sow bad seed in their life will reap very destructive consequences. How then can God not judge America if they sow the very same seeds the kingdoms of Judah and Israel sowed more than 2500 years ago? The law of sowing and reaping cannot be broken. We will reap what we have sown.

God in my book says, “Why have you pursued your own desires without me? By doing this, you have taught others your wicked ways. The blood of those who have stood against your sin (that day is fast approaching in our country; read ‘The Coming Persecution’) and of those unborn children you have killed for pleasure-seeking has not been unnoticed. You think you are innocent before me and that I will not punish you. You think you have my approval for what you have done because my pastors said it was okay. Why are you trying to argue with me? You were ashamed of these things in the past, and you will be ashamed again. You will not be able to use your excuses to claim your innocence before me. You have rejected my principles and it will lead to your ruin.”

The Church needs to stand up and stop our decline in this country. It has to stop retreating. It has continually stepped back every time the godless have made gains against us with only light verbal complaining. Complaining accomplishes nothing. Faith without works is dead. This country was born by men who acted. They did more than complain: they acted. Prayers will not change anything by itself. The very people praying have to step out of their comfort zone, make sacrifices, and be ready to be imprisoned or even be put to death to put this country back on the path our Founding Fathers set us on more than 200 years ago. God requires us to act now. Without faith, it is impossible to please him. Without works, faith has no affect, because it is not faith without the actions that go with it.

If any of you want to save this country, then all of you have to act today. When the economy crashes in the fall of 2015, then no amount of faith is going to save this nation from God’s wrath. It will be too late.

The United States Under the Blessings

May 2, 2013

In what is getting close to 250 years ago, the United States became an independent nation. Our Founding Fathers rebelled against the British government and established the most remarkable government ever created. They realized God as their driving force to create freedom for all men with exceptions at the time, and established what has been the most remarkable example of how God blesses a people that put him first. Now, let us look at Deuteronomy 28 to understand how we became so great.

“And it shall come to pass, if you shall hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and do all his commandments…that the Lord your God will set you on high above all nations of the earth: and all these blessings shall come on you and overtake you, if you shall hearken to the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground, and the fruit of your cattle…Blessed shall be your basket and store (finances and economy). Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out. The Lord shall cause your enemies that rise up against you to be smitten before your face: they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. The Lord shall command the blessings upon you in your storehouses (abundance of food), and in all you set your hand to; and he shall bless you in the land he gives you. The Lord shall establish you a holy people to himself…if you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and walk in his ways. 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 its 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; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath; if you hearken to the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you this day to observe and do them. (Deuteronomy 28: 1-10, 12-13)

God at the beginning of this country was at the center of our society. As a result, all the blessings listed in these verses overtook us. We rose up to be above all the nations of the earth. We had prosperous large cities grow up out of our landscape. Our farms were producing and still are producing enough food to feed the other nations of the world. We rose up to become the number one military power in the world. Countries became afraid to mess with us. Our economy became the greatest economy in the world. We lended to the nations and were not borrowing. We used our money to rebuild Europe after WWII. We consistently have had an abundance of rain and regarding the fruit of the body promise from God; our athletes became the greatest in the world overall. Everything in these verses came to pass as a result of having God at the center of our society. God says it is impossible for him to lie, and this nation has been a shining example of that promise.

Now, we are the borrower. Now, the nations of the world are losing their fear of us as they can see we have no leaders with a commitment to use the power we have militarily. Now, we can lose wars like Vietnam. Why? Because we have turned away from God, and are now living under the curses listed in Deuteronomy 28 that follow these verses. We do not have a sense of direction in our leaders with a purpose that led us to greatness. Why? Because it is God that gives us a vision. It is he who gives us a purpose. “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” (Proverbs 29: 18) Our leaders are godless and embrace immorality as acceptable and to be lauded as Obama has just done. We are under God’s curses and headed fast to destruction.

There is only one solution to save this nation: repentance. We have to turn back to God or we certainly will never see any more prosperous days. It will only continue to go down from here. It will not be long before we are living under the government system described in George Orwell’s novel entitled, “1984.” That is where we are headed, and that is what is being planned right now and implemented behind the scenes as much as possible. It is today, all of us have to rise up and protest what is going on in this country and put God back into our society. Only then can we ever see the blessings of God on this country once more. Our time is almost up to change things. Once our time is up, there can be no turning back of God’s final judgment on this nation.
