God spoke to the Nation of Israel…. Through Joshua….just as they finished their 40 years of wandering in the wilderness. God gave them some warnings…that if they do certain things, He would bless them. If they failed to do them, they would see their downfall.
America’s leadership is leading our nation in the wrong direction, and this is going to bring about God’s judgment.
Here is what God said to Israel: Taken from the entire chapter of Deuteronomy 8….
1 Be careful to follow every command I am giving you, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land that the LORD promised on oath to your forefathers.
2 Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. God is testing America now to know what is in our hearts….whether or not we will choose to follow Him…or seek another path…another god.
3 God humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. God fed Israel and provided food for each day and not beyond…unless it fell on the Sabbath.
4 Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years. God provided for Israel – in the desert…where there would normally be no food and no water. God provided for Americans for 200 years now.
5 Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you. When we stray from God, He will chastise us.
6 Observe the commands of the LORD your God, walking in his ways and revering him. This is the commandment of God…..to observe HIS WAYS. America’s leadership from the president to Congress and the Senate…to the court systems are quickly abandoning anything to do with God or Christianity. We are failing to observe HIS WAYS, and are, instead, following the ways of man (really Satan’s ways).
7 For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land—a land with streams and pools of water, with springs flowing in the valleys and hills. Christians are promised a “good land” called heaven. We are at the threshold of that land right now because God is working HIS PLAN to bring His judgment upon the world NOW.
8 a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey; 9 a land where bread will not be scarce and you will lack nothing; a land where the rocks are iron and you can dig copper out of the hills. 10 When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you.
11 Be careful that you do not forget the LORD your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day.
12 Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down, 13 and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, 14 then your heart will become proud and you will forget the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
When God blesses a nation….like Israel and America, we sometimes get complacent. We start thinking that WE did these things…that WE brought ourselves to a place of pride within ourselves and our accomplishments. We start to forget our Creator…our God.
15 He led you through the vast and dreadful desert, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock.
16 He gave you manna to eat in the desert, something your fathers had never known, to humble and to test you so that in the end it might go well with you. God brought Israel from hard times in a foreign land to great times in the land HE provided….just as God brought America from a hard land who oppressed the populace.
We came into a land of freedom. We fought and bled and died for our freedoms and our Constitution. And now….Progressives (anti-God zealots who are now in power worldwide) are forcing their ways upon the populace, and the consequence of our rolling over and letting them do it will cost us our freedom….once again…just like when Israel sought after other gods….and became slaves to other nations.
We will become slaves to government, and government will be global soon....according to Bible prophecy.
17 You may say to yourself, "My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me." 18 But remember the LORD your God, for it is HE who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.
19 If you ever forget the LORD your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed.
20 Like the nations the LORD destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the LORD your God.
America…it is time to wake up and time to get back to our roots of worshipping God.
That said, I believe it is too late, and that God is planning to judge the world in the very near future.
In that case, it behooves anyone with an ounce of brains to think about their eternal destiny…will you choose to enter the promised land of heaven…or suffer for eternity in a place called hell….along with those anti-God Progressives and those who are trying to destroy our country and take away our freedom?
