A Spirit of Confusion in the United States


What happens when a society departs from God? What causes mass shootings and confused people not knowing what gender they are or race? What causes societies to pervert the family unit and promote immoral activities as normal which can only lead to that country’s destruction? It is what God calls confusion.

What is confusion as expressed in the Bible? There are two main definitions for most passages. One is a misalignment from God; no direction in life for an individual, or nation; not knowing where to find happiness or peace in one’s life. The other definition is leading others by example to their own destruction. These two definitions cover what we are seeing going on in the United States, today.

We have just had a mass killing in South Carolina by a 21 year old boy. The authorities and news media tell you he is a man, but I can tell you in spirit and in mind this is a boy. He is confused. He is separated from God who he has never known, and he has no direction in his life. He is searching for peace but cannot find it. He has been looking in all the wrong places, and now he has reacted from the hate that has filled his soul. He needs salvation. The pundits will tell you he is obviously mentally ill, but that is not the problem. He is a lost soul that was never directed in his life to find God and accept the salvation that would have given his life direction. As a result, he is a confused individual that will do what all confused individuals do when trying to find happiness. He turns to sin, and strikes out at others.

A person on-line was looking for help and wrote the question: “Spiritually I don’t feel like I’m getting any direction from God, and these trials have worn me out mentally to a point where I can’t focus?” The answers he or she got from some people were enraging. Of course there was the usual atheist saying that proves there is no God: The fool has said in his heart, there is no God. (Psalms 14:1) Then there was the praying to Mary from someone in which all I will say about that is it is not a helpful statement; but then there were people suggesting this person did not know God or needed to get back into covenant with God as if they were in error. That is the argument Job’s friends were making with him, saying all the bad that happened to him was because he was in error. These people were ignorant and Satan was using them to try and cause more confusion to this person. The proper answer for him or her was, “Sometimes we go through dry periods in our life. An example of this is when the Jews walked in the desert for 40 years. It was a test not only to see where their loyalty was, but also to prepare them for the wars they would have to conquer the Promised Land. You are in a dry period. It is a test, and your job is to thank God for this test, because it is preparing you for your future. Just keep reading scripture and praying, and the dry period will someday end. When you pass this test, you will be promoted by God and be at a new level where God can do more with you than at the present.”

Confusion is rampant in our society. You have Bruce Jenner not knowing what gender he should be. He is looking for happiness and peace in his life, but he is not going to find it turning himself into a woman. He needs Jesus. There are white people who think they are really black. There are people who want to be both genders. I have recently seen a man who has had breast implants to be whatever gender he feels he should be on any particular day. All of this is confusion. It is destructive and completely contrary to God’s word. It degrades our society, and leads our youth into a path where they cannot find God and as a result a few of them turn to committing mass killings. If our youth grew up in a Bible based home with a mother and father like we had at the beginning of the 20th century, we would not be seeing all these mass shootings. That is the answer and not trying to send them to psychiatrists. They have a spiritual problem the psychiatrists cannot treat that is manifesting these shootings. I do not have anything against psychiatrists but am telling you the solution to this confusion in our society requires God being in these people’s lives.

Now what does God have to say about confusion? Let me give you a few passages:

“Do they provoke me to anger says the Lord? Do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces? (Jeremiah 7: 19)

“Oh Lord, righteousness belongs to you, but to us confusion of faces…because of their trespass that they have committed against you. Oh Lord, to us confusion of face is in our [presidents], our [leaders], and to our fathers, because we have sinned against you.” (Daniel 9: 7-8)

“You shall not lie with mankind (homosexuality) as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shall you lie with any beast to defile yourself: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.” (Leviticus 18: 23)

“If a man lies with his daughter–in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them.” (Leviticus 20: 12)

“For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.” (James 3: 16)

Notice in the last verse the company that confusion keeps: every evil work. From these verses we see sin causes confusion. Being separated from God causes confusion in a society. If we want to save this nation, then we have to turn back to God. The Republicans are not going to find the solution. Doing it Rush Limbaugh’s or Hannity’s way is not going to work. This nation has to repent and turn back to God. This is what awaits us in the near future if we do not repent:

“Behold, the Lord makes the [U.S.] empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatter abroad the inhabitants thereof. And it shall be as with the people, so with the [ruler]; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower…The land shall be utterly emptied and utterly spoiled: for the Lord has spoken this word. The [United States] mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away, the haughty people [of the United States] do languish. The [United States] is defiled by its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore has the curse devoured the [United States], and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the [United States] are burned, and few men left. The new wine mourns, the vine languishes, all the merry-hearted do sigh. The mirth of [the musical instruments] ceases, the noise of them that rejoice ends, the joy of the harp ceases. They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it. The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up so that no man can come in. There is crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened; the mirth of the land is gone. In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.”  (Isaiah 24: 1- 12)

This is the path we are on in this country. By taking God out of our society, we have wrought confusion in every corner of our nation. Our youth do not know God and those who have the biggest mouthpieces are trying to get us to destroy all morality. Without God, this nation will fall. Without repenting, this nation will face God’s judgment beginning around the end of this summer. Isaiah 24 is a warning of what is coming to this nation in the following few months from today if we do not repent.
