The Day of the King in the United States

In 1 Samuel 8, the Israelites who were ruled by God through the judges he chose, asked Samuel for a king to rule over them. When Samuel went to God about this, God said to him, “They have not rejected you (to be their ruler), but they have rejected me, that I should not rule over them.” This is where we are in the United States, today. 

Samuel went on to tell the people what would happen as a result of setting a king over them. He said, “He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself—He will appoint him captains over thousands and captains over hundreds…and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots. He will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. He will take your fields and your vineyards, and your olive yards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. He will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work. He will take the tenth of your sheep: and you will be his servants. And you will cry out in that day because of your king who you shall have chosen to be over you; and the Lord will not hear you in that day. (1 Samuel 8: 11-18) 

When this country was founded, God was the chief cornerstone we laid. That is the reason he is found in the Declaration of Independence and his principles laid out in the Constitution. Freedom of religion was exactly what God gave us so we could willingly and not by force worship him. Today, we have rejected God and have replaced him with a king. That king is the United States government. As mentioned in the previous paragraph, the government is taking our fields and our vineyards and is increasing in size every year. As its power grows, we are becoming more and more subservient to the government just as described in the previous paragraph. We have rejected God and set a king over us to do all those things to us listed in 1 Samuel 8:11-18. 

Another symptom of taking God out of our country is manifesting itself in the crisis of today as the politicians and political know-it-alls on TV keep saying that we are going to have a total disaster if the government defaults on its obligations if we do not raise the debt ceiling. Spending money one does not have is insane enough and shows us what people are like when they totally reject God in their lives, but the Republicans show us they, too have rejected God as the solution to our problems. In  1 Samuel 7, the Israelites were all gathered together at Mizpeh at Samuel’s request. They began putting away the gods of which they were worshipping instead of God. The Philistine’s saw this gathering and chose to attack them at that time. Samuel began an offering to the Lord and told Israel to not fear the Philistines who were coming. God intervened and the Philistines were defeated and subdued before Israel because they went to God in this crisis. 

What are the Republicans doing in today’s debt crisis? They are not turning to God, but they are fearful and compromising with the Democrats to raise the debt ceiling. They do not believe God can get us out of the consequences they fear will come  if we do not raise the debt ceiling. There can be no deliverance by God if we do not turn to him. All they are going to achieve is the total collapse of our dollar and our economy because this country has rejected God. Remember what it says in 1 Samuel 8:18, “And you will cry out in that day because of your king who you have chosen to be over you; and the Lord will not hear you in that day.” That day as mentioned in my book is fast approaching. In a short while, God will not reverse the judgment he has already started on us.

    Very true to God’s Word, my brother! I wish all of Congress could read it. Perhaps some mighty take it to heart. Keep up the good work! God is watching and will surely reward you. You’re a great man in God’s Kingdom. Helen/Dallas, TX.
