The Roman Empire, the British Empire and the Ottoman Empire have all vanished from the face of the earth. Now, we are living witnesses to the destruction of another great power. The United States of America will soon end being the world’s greatest super-power.
Whether we will become a lesser nation or cease to exist, remains to be seen. Our nation is facing an unprecedented time in history. The future of America is uncertain. Yet the future remains in the hands of the people. It is up to us to decide what the future holds.
Our Founding Fathers began our Constitution with these immortal words, ‘We the People…’ We the people elect representatives to go to Washington to represent our interests. However, over the years, the people have failed to hold our statesmen accountable. Instead, we now have a system in place where people, when elected, rarely ever leave. Career politicians now run our country, doing what they feel is best. The politicians seek very little real input from the people whom they are elected to represent. Our nation was not founded on those principles. Despite this, our nation has prospered because of one important, but forgotten, reason. America has been abundantly blessed by God. It has been our relationship with our Creator that has made America great. God is the ultimate authority in America; not career politicians!
Today, in the halls of Congress and in the Oval Office, God can no longer be found. Oh you will find some symbolic lip service; but there is no real worship of a powerful God. He has been removed from our government and replaced with self-gratifying career politicians. The Constitution did not include term limits for our members of Congress; because we should never need term limits. Our statesmen were expected to go to Washington and represent the people for a limited amount of time, and then return home. Politicians nowadays stay until they either die in office or retire. In rare cases, a few might lose an election; but usually, only after a major scandal. Most of the time, career politicians just get re-elected over and over.
It is wrong for the people to allow career politicians to run America. Christians especially, should be voting for people who have the character of Christ. Jesus came to serve, not to be served (Matthew 20:28, Mark 10:45). Our elected representatives should have the same mindset. In America, we need God-fearing statesmen who will take the voice of the people to Washington, do their duty and then return home to their fellow citizens.
America has reached a crossroads. We can’t continue on the same path of re-electing career politicians. America now faces an unprecedented number of crises. Politicians have gotten us into this mess and they are the last ones to get us out. There are too many crises to list; but I would like to identify three of the major issues that must be addressed immediately, if America is to survive as a nation.
Our fall from God’s Moral Standards
Our fall from God’s moral standards is a major reason America is under a curse. The spread of immorality is destroying the very principles this nation was founded upon. Immorality has brought down great nations before. Empires have fallen from within, because of evil. When the people lose their moral principles, chaos and civil unrest erupt. Without God’s law, our nation cannot stand. Here in America, immorality has been increasing for over half a century. As a child raised in the 60’s, I saw firsthand the decadence that began to spread across America. Sexual immorality, disintegration of the family and the rise of false doctrines have destroyed the foundation of America. We all sin; but when there is no repentance, then sin abounds even more. Like a cancer left untreated, the sins of this nation have continued to spread throughout every fiber of our society.
The sexual revolution began with women burning their bras. This led to the great sin of abortion being legalized. Then public prayer was taken out of our schools. Ironically, our public schools were founded using the Bible as the primary source of education. Today, having a Bible in school is grounds for being suspended or fired.
The results are not surprising. Our education system is a complete failure. High school graduates are way behind graduates around the world. Colleges are openly criticizing high schools for not preparing students for secondary education. Yet, our colleges and universities are failing to educate as well. The liberal leaders have taken God, prayer and the Bible out of our schools, and all we are left with is a complete failure to prepare our children for their future. If children are the future of America, then our secular public schools have failed America. As the schools disintegrate, the family unit is no better. Divorce has taken a major toll on our society. Now considered normal, there is no regard given to the influence divorce has on our children, the adults involved or our nation as a whole. Divorce leads to adultery; which is a great sin. Jesus taught many lessons on this evil. Yet, America has accepted it as normal behavior. Does Sodom and Gomorrah ring a bell?
In our government, politicians lie to the people—and nobody cares! Our churches have become empty shells, as apathy has spread from pew to pew. Now God is being taken out of our military. The spread of decadence continues with no end in sight. Yet, it will all end; it always does. Empires and nations cease to exist when immorality reaches a tipping point. America is near the end.
The End of the Gold Standard
The second flaming arrow aimed at the heart of America is the economy. We left the gold standard for good in the 70’s, choosing instead to trust the government. The government began to print money as fast as it could, and still does. Backed only by the good faith of the U.S. government, our money has become worth less and less. Gold, on the other hand, has held value for thousands of years. We are left with a promise from a money-spending government that now is over $ 125 TRILLION in debt! The last time our federal government actually cut spending, was in 1954—the year I was born.
The career politicians in our government are spending money as fast as they possibly can. The Federal Reserve can’t even print it fast enough, so they have gone to creating it out of thin air. This will lead to hyper-inflation. Your money is worth less and less every day. But your debt remains. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is for you to reduce your debt, as quickly as possible. The government knows it is coming. They are preparing for civil unrest by stockpiling ammo, arming the IRS and other non-military branches of government, and increasing surveillance. Gun registration and confiscation will soon follow. If the government feels the need to stockpile weapons and ammo, then the citizens should be doing likewise. Make no mistake, our government is preparing for a takeover of individual and States’ rights. As the economy collapses, it is natural for civil unrest to increasingly become a threat. The good news is, this will not happen overnight. Keep in mind that an economic collapse greater than the Great Depression, will take years to fully develop. The entire globe will be affected. Europe is already the forerunner in the economic turmoil and very well could collapse in the next two to three years. Let me emphasize that the coming collapse will be much worse than what the world experienced during the Great Depression. China, Japan, Russia and almost every other nation on earth is struggling economically. It is just a matter of time.
The only way for America to survive this coming collapse, is to elect leaders in 2014 and 2016 that will make the hard decisions to protect our nation’s future. There won’t be any easy answers as the crisis progresses. Sacrifice will be required. But a sacrifice now, will prevent a much greater hardship later. Of the $ 125 Trillion debt and unfunded liabilities owed, most can be eliminated with a few mildly painful decisions. However, our government, the media and the politicians lie to us. If you listen to the news, you hear our debt is $ 17 Trillion. That is completely inaccurate and misleading. That relates to the operational budget only and excludes several unfunded liabilities. Pay attention and you will see they rarely ever discuss the Social Security debt, the massive Medicare debt and other sources of liability. There is no transparency in Washington. They have lied so often, they believe it themselves!
We need God-fearing leaders in Washington that will make these hard decisions. We cannot wait any longer; they must be elected in 2014 and 2016. If American voters wait, if they choose to continue to elect big-spending career politicians, our nation will not survive. The voters of America have to wake up and get involved in THIS ELECTION. Otherwise, America will be a sad humiliating chapter in the history of the world.
Rebellion against God
The third and most important reason America is being destroyed, is we have rebelled against God. Our relationship with our Creator has disintegrated, as we have rejected Him. God blessed our nation, but we now reject that blessing. God is the source of all prosperity. Yet, our government, and many people across the land, believe we can control our own destiny. This foolish thinking has led to our economy collapsing, massive debt and out-of-control spending. We cannot prosper without God’s blessings!
God is the source of America’s power and wealth. The people of our nation have rejected God and asked Him to leave; welcoming instead, foreign gods who have no power nor might. All other gods are false and can only bring destruction. God has abandoned our nation to reap what we have sown. He has removed His protective hand from our land. Terrorists have arrived and brought their evil pain to our shores. We are now doomed to destruction.
Unless! Unless we the people, who are called by His name, humble ourselves and pray, and seek His face and turn from our wickedness. You see, the future of America doesn’t have to be in the hands of the people in Washington. The future of America is in YOUR HANDS. More precisely, your knees. If Christians across America will get down on their knees and PRAY FIRST to a loving and merciful God, our nation will be healed (2 Chronicles 7:14). Our greatest strength comes from us as Christians getting down on our knees, in humble submission to God Almighty. He is waiting for us there!
The decline of America is fulfilling prophecy. God knew we would rebel against Him. Moreover, the end of America as the world’s greatest super-power, opens the door for a One-World Government. This government will be the instrument of the Anti-Christ, in whom Satan himself will indwell. Prophecy also says that in the last days, a massive army will come from the east (Revelation 9:14-16). China and North Korea are amassing a massive army right now. They are preparing for war with the United States and our allies. As I write this, China is openly becoming aggressive in the South China Sea. An area claimed by several nations, most of which we have sworn to protect. There is no doubt we will see a major war in the Pacific very soon. It is just a matter of time. Our military has been weakened by President Evil; while China has been increasing their military. We have sworn to defend Japan, South Korea, the Philippines and other nations. The burden of this war will fall on America, because none of these nations have the sufficient military strength to defend themselves. This will balloon our national debt and increase military spending. In the end, we will not be able to win this war. Financially and politically, we are weak. Our brave soldiers will do their best; but once again, career politicians in Washington will fail them.
I take no pleasure in describing what is happening in our nation. Prophecy is being fulfilled and our nation is never mentioned by name in the Bible. However, the evidence is clear; America is about to cease being a super-power and a great nation. Within this very decade, the nation we call home will change forever. It is now up to you to determine whether we continue to exist as a nation at all. Or will we become another conquered empire on the timeline of history?
If you are a Christian, then this is what you must do:
- PRAY FIRST, for a spiritual awakening in America
- VOTE. Elect Christians who hold to conservative Biblical values
- HUMBLE YOURSELF. Read 2 Chronicles 7:14 and share the message
- SEEK GOD’S FACE. Petition God to heal our land. Encourage your church, family and friends to join us in raising our voices to heaven.
- TURN FROM YOUR SINS. Repent! Ask God to forgive your sins and the sins of our nation.
- PARTICIPATE IN THE AMERICAN DAY OF PRAYER. This year, May 1st is set aside for national repentance and prayer. Plan now to join in. Encourage your church to open its doors and hold prayer services.
- Join with other concerned Christians in praying for our nation at www.facebook.com/AmericansPrayingforAmerica
If more Christians begin to pray daily and encourage others to pray, GOD WILL HEAR US! I believe that based on prophecy, America will survive and will return to prosperity. Once we are willing to accept our sin, repent as a nation and return to Him. IT’S TIME TO TURN TO GOD and once again be ONE NATION UNDER GOD.
