War: One of God's Penalties for Nations that Loves Murder, Sexual Sin, Corrupt Government- Lewdness or This Man's Father's Leather Strap- A Parable
I have long been impressed by the computer (mind) given to me by the Almighty. One particular facet that I would like to note is the ability to remember. Although I don’t seem to have the same height of ability that some have, I still appreciate what memory ability with which I was graced. I would like to speak of a repeated happening which I have never forgotten although it’s been the greater part of 50 years ago that these events occurred. (Ps. 139:1-24)
Ol’ Dad had this leather belt that he referred to as The Strap. Dad had a particular place in the house where it hung, on a nail stuck into the wall. The strap was to us kids what some have referred to as an instrument of higher education, and although only two of us ten kids ever attended college, I’m quite sure we all got a taste, at least once or twice of Dad’s higher education. These moments of implementing wisdom most often had a predictable pattern. After you were tried and convicted, the sentence was spoken, then the judgment was applied to our backsides, and usually with very little delay. Dad would say, “Go get me the strap”, and of course with fear and trembling we obeyed. Then Dad would say, “Stand here, bend over and touch your ankles.” We would then stand there, bend over, and touch our ankles. That of course was when the discipline was administered to our backsides. (Pr. 23:14, Pr. 13:24, Pr. 19:18, Pr. 22:15)
I guess Ol’ Dad never got a chance to listen to the wisdom of so many of our modern psychologists and social engineers who don’t believe in spanking a child, although we always referred to the experience as getting a lickin, for as I recall the word spanking was never used in our household when we were growing up.
America, listen to me. Our soldiers have now been moved by the thousands to Afghanistan, before that it was Iraq where the lives of thousands were poured out, and still many more will all their life long bear the consequence of their wounds, and where countless barrels of American tax money was spent funding that war. Are we in the end going to come out a winner in this contest? NO, I do not believe so, and I will tell you why. God is not with us, and that is because we are not with Him. (1Sam. 2:30b) Yes, I know it says on our coinage, “In God We Trust”, but we do not trust in God? For if we did trust in God we would turn from our many sins and acknowledge His laws. (Ja. 2:14-26, Mat. 7:17-20) In fact, what was the last war that America won? Since World War 2 America has not won a war, with the exception of what was called the Desert Storm Conflict, and that victory was not due to America’s righteousness. In my opinion it was purely only that the Almighty had a “bone to pick” with Saddam Hussein’s government.
Let us briefly speak of these modern wars, that of Iraq and Afghanistan. But before we do let us at the very first open our minds and establish a basic and fundamental fact. That is, that the destruction of the New York Twin Towers was not a foreign terrorist action. I bring the Twin Tower’s discussion into this article because it was used as the single great reasoning for the Iraq war. There exists an exceeding-abundant amount of evidence that can prove to any honest mind that the destruction of the Twin Towers was a very well planned and executed demolition job. Just type in “911 truth” into any of your leading search engines, and volumes of evidence will be will begin to be presented to you. This evidence will establish the foundation of what I am saying. So if the destruction of the twin towers was not a foreign terrorist act, then who was the perpetrator?
Let’s answer that question by asking another question. Since there are truly volumes of points of evidence leading to the conclusion that the destruction of the Twin Towers did not happen as a result of the airline planes flying into them and causing fires, but by a multitude of perfectly synchronized explosions, then why has not our government stepped up to the plate and hit a home run by launching a full-scale investigation into exactly what did happen? I will say this. It is not men that walk in the light that hide their deeds, but it is men (or governments) that do evil that seek to hide their deeds. (John 3:19-21) I tell you that former President Bush is up to his ears in implication, and no doubt numerous other high-ranking officials with him. How do I know this? If he does not share guilt in the destruction of the New York Twin Towers, then would he not have followed the undeniable evidence and exposed the guilty parties, for is that not the job of a nation’s leader, to expose and punish the guilty? (Pr. 20:8, 20:26) And why the war with Iraq? Was it ever established that there was any real proof of Iraq having the ability to be any real threat to our Nation’s security? No, it was not. I suggest the reason for that war was to stir up trouble with the Muslim peoples. To create global turmoil. And why would this be wanted? One more step toward the need for a one world government. That’s why. One supposed, great, and mighty world government who is to be vested with power to squelch any regional war. That is also the reason for the destruction of the Twin Towers. It was to create panic and hysteria so that our federal government could step in and take the rights of the American people from them, the which, they have quite effectively begun to do.
America: Dear America, we have played the fool. In our rebellion we’ve turned our backs on God, on His laws, and on His gospel. We have winked at, and many of us even loved murder, we have grown to wink at, and love injustice, pornography, divorce, adultery, fornication, drunkenness, and drugs. We hold to our ear-tickling leaders both civil and religious, instead of turning our hearts to the truth. Now the time has come for the strap to be grabbed, and we are to bend over and touch our ankles. I imagine there will be many who will scream and pitch a fit, but that will not change the fact that the Almighty is going to tan our backsides, and He’ll turn a deaf ear to anything short of true repentance. This judgment has already begun. Our great run away government is one form of it. In that we would not retain Yeshua, His gospel, and His law as our sovereign, then government has stepped in to take His place, and what a tyrannical government our federal government is proving to be, and if not brought into check will yet prove to be. (Isaiah 5:8-30)
How will the Almighty administer this discipline?
Will it be war only? No, that is not the only way in which Yehovah will afflict us. Also diseases, taxes, women to rule over us, fools and men of perverted values to rule over us, our youth will oppress us, violence will fill our land, our crops will fail because of pestilence, droughts and storms. Our foods will be depleted in nu tritional value, and contaminated with toxins of various sorts, which will cause many of our people to suffer tormenting diseases, plus the day comes when we will experience empty store shelves. Floods, fires, and fierce storms have, and will continue to devastate us. Be assured America, Yehovah has a number of tricks in His bag to pull out and use in His attempt to cause us to be humbled, and thus repent of our sins and seek His wisdom and righteousness. (Deuteronomy 28:15-68)
Go ahead and cry to the federal government.
Government often behaves as if it is God Himself, so see if government can save you. For it is true that many of them behave as if they have all the answers. Especially our present president. Mr. Obama. The president who has driven America into debt more in his first 3 months in office then the past ten presidents. The one who in his boldness would completely undermine the foundations of a free capitalist society, which foundations have stood in this country since its conception. The one who circumvents Congress with his executive pen. The one who ardently works to maintain the legal status for the murder of the unborn. The one who laughed out loud in support and acceptance of the recent perverted Supreme Court ruling favoring the insanity of thought that suggests that the abomination of homosexuality ought to be given the legal protection of marriage. The man whom I say is the very scariest man in America. I say this to you America. _Cursed be the man that trusted in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord_. (Yehovah) (Jeremiah 17:5b KJV)
A few Bible verses describing the character and action of much of our leadership:
- The memory of the just is bless: but the name of the wicked shall rot (Prov. 10:7 KJV)
- When it goes well with the righteous the city rejoices; and when the wicked perish, there is shouting (Prov. 11:10 KJV)
- The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord; but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness (Prov. 15:9 KJV)
- The Lord (Yehovah) is far from the wicked; but he heareth the prayer of the righteous (Prov. 15:29 KJV)
- The righteousness man wisely considereth the house of the wicked; but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness (Prov. 21:12 KJV)
- When the wicked rise, men hide themselves; but when they perish, the righteous increase (Prov. 28:28 KJV)
- When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn (Prov. 29:2 KJV)
America, it was God who birthed you as a nation. (Zechariah 2:10-11, Revelations 11:5)
You were conceived by the seeds of faith and understanding sown by Yehovah into the hearts of our national fathers. (Luke 8:15) They purposed that you be a nation where the gospel of the Lord Yeshua was in a wide spread manner experienced by its citizens resulting in a people whose hearts were transformed, and because of this a people who loved Yehovah’s law and walked in righteousness. Yehovah had chosen you from your beginning to be a light in the world testifying by both word and deed of how a free people who by the power of the gospel, and the wisdom of His laws would bring forth a manner of life exemplifying righteousness. Your nation’s early fathers envisioned you as a city on a hill, which testified of what a nation could be when the life and wisdom of Yeshua is experienced. But in modern days you have shunned His light and wisdom. Denying the Bible and the Creation story. Testifying that man’s origins are from some prehistoric slim bog. It is no wonder that now many of our people (And great elements of its government) morals are very slimy. Their actions are like brute beasts. (Animals, without reason or conscience) (2 Peter 2:12-22 & 3:3-11) The Almighty will never be content to give His glory to another, nor see His plans fail.
America: I believe the heart of God vehemently weeps over your turning from Him, even as Yeshua wept over Jerusalem in His generation foreseeing the cities eventual destruction. (Luke 19:41) It pains Him to have to bring judgment against your house, but know this. God will, if He needs to, break you America. Like a pencil in a man’s hand. The Holy One, the Almighty One, the One that created all things, He will not be mocked. We’d do well to repent, that He might visit us with His manifest presence expressing graciousness, healing, recovery, and direction, so that the soul of this nation might again be filled with true vision, with justice, and with honor.
Oh, come forth Lord Yeshua, be once again, both our Savior, and our King.
