The Word of God vs. The Structural Integrity of America's Foundation

| mon, april 13, 2009 |

"In this day of gathering storms, as moral deterioration of political power spreads its growing infection, it is essential that every spiritual force be mobilized to defend and preserve the religious base upon which this nation is founded; for it has been that base which has been the motivating impulse to our moral and national growth. History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual reawakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster." -General Douglas MacArthur

Did General Douglas MacArthur get a glimpse of America's future?

As I came across this quote I couldn't help but appreciate the words captured so eloquently by the late General. A statement so bold and so true, the words almost seem prophetic. What did the General know then that our nation doesn't seem to know now?

A nation is only as solid as its foundation. As simple as this concept is, many today have forgotten just how important a foundation is. A foundation isn't just for looks; it's the first step to a successful and sound structure. I know a carpenter; He explained it this way,

Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that hears these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be like a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and the beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. - Jesus Christ (Matthew 7:24-27

Okay so Jesus was speaking in terms of ones spirituality and salvation. But the principle is the same and is especially important for a nation's stability. Build upon the rock and the house stands, build upon the sand and great is the destruction.

So what does this have to do with America?

America's foundation has been compromised, undermined, and sold off greedily in countless exchanges for worldly lusts. The cornerstone is no longer established on the Rock of Jesus Christ. Does it seem so hard to believe America was at one time built upon the Cornerstone of Jesus Christ and lived by Judeo Christian values?  We must look back at history before it was rewritten and before Christianity started to be expunged from the books of history.

Here is an excerpt from Sue Bradley's The Watchman and 911, (this kind of history is hard, if not impossible, to find in our latest text books, but it is true and can be found with diligent research.)

America was born, not on July 4th but was conceived on July 4th... America was born as a fully formed nation on April 30th, 1789. On that day, for the first time, America had a Constitution, a House of Representatives and a President together. It was the birth of the United States as a fully formed, constituted nation.

On that day, the government, the House, the Senate and the President all gathered in the Capital together, it was the Inauguration of George Washington. It was the nation‘s Dedication Day.

Now often in the Bible, the threshold of a new beginning gives promises and warnings and prophetic truths: Moses at the Jordan River, Solomon at the dedication of the Temple. So after being sworn in, Washington went inside the Capitol Building and issued the first Presidential address. The first Presidential words were short and in the middle of it was a prophetic warning. He (George Washington) said this:

 "We ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and the right which heaven itself has ordained."

The warning was, [that] America‘s future blessing would be, as with Israel, will hang on its relationship to God. If America should begin to depart from God, its blessings its prosperity and its protection shall be lifted up.

The warning was given on the Nation‘s first day, its day of dedication. After finishing the address and giving his warning, the first act of the American government was undertaken. It was this:

After the address, Washington, and all the other officials, the Senators, the House of Representatives, the Vice President, all left the place of Inauguration, traveled on foot to a small church, a chapel, they went inside...and we don‘t know exactly what they said, but we do know they were there for one purpose. For two hours they prayed, committed, and they consecrated this nation into God‘s hands. The entire government was kneeling before God.

[End excerpt]

So there really was a time in American history that our government as a whole bent knee before the Almighty God and consecrated this land to Jehovah's Holy and Heavenly name. It really is true that George Washington gave this nation wholly into the hands of God, acknowledging that this great land and America's blessing hung upon a righteous relationship with the Almighty God. This couldn't be true, could it? Sounds like our first president and the rest of the government for that matter understood the importance of a solid foundation.

That was America in the past; now to look at America's foundation in the present. To do this I will use what I call the "Three-stage system to national destruction" found throughout the book of Isaiah, it's as follows:
1. Spiritual apostasy
2. Moral awfulness
3. Political anarchy

From start to finish as each stage is completed, more of the original foundation deteriorates and becomes replaced with corruption and deceit. With each stage of deterioration also comes a cycle, with each cycle comes opportunities to repent and return once again to the original place of blessing under God and the reestablishment upon the sturdy foundation of Jehovah. We can see the children of Israel demonstrate this in the book of Judges and through out the rest of the Bible.

Upon her birth, America was dedicated to the Lord, thus she first started in a place of blessing. This nation's founding fathers and first president, as apparent through their first act as the newly ruling government, committed and consecrated this great land into the hands of God. Dedicating her at birth, they openly acknowledged she had been placed under the laws and guidance of God Almighty. For a time the government and the people of America continued to worship God and live by His moral code, governing and enforcing laws by this code.

After a time spiritual apostasy began to infiltrate the sound doctrine the government and the nation had originally used to establish America on a Godly foundation. America's Godly foundation came under attack by false religious doctrines, perverting the Truth ever so slightly. As always with sin, the first temptation always seems harmless. The little attacks of spiritual apostasy slowly undermined God's solid spiritual direction. America began ever so slightly to deviate from the moral code that had established her righteous relationship with God. After years of these minor changes, the changes as a whole added up to a huge shift in America's moral alignment with God. As one change led to another and as the cycle continued over a couple hundred years with increased intensity, the persistent spiritual apostasy achieved the 180° degree turnabout from righteousness, thus the completion of America's spiritual apostasy. Upon completion, America became guilty of forsaking the one and only true God and His divine instruction. 

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1

The next stage, moral awfulness begins to take root sometime after spiritual apostasy has already begun to alter a society's spiritual landscape. As heresy after heresy corrupts the moral code and sound doctrine of Jehovah, moral awfulness roots deeper into the conscience of the nation, government, and people. This continued spiritual and moral decline leads the nation, government, and the people to continually drift further away from a moral God-fearing conscience. Once spiritual apostasy has rendered the conscience mute of Godly conviction, ambition becomes driven by moral awfulness, lead by the seductive voice of carnal guidance. Carnal guidance leads to the path and propagation of all moral deficiencies, leading the nation, government, and her people to seek out carnal satisfaction no matter the amount of causalities created along the way. Both the physical and spiritual cost of such worldly pursuits, lead by the voice of carnal guidance, comes at a high price.

Before Moses died he told the children of Israel what would happen if they followed the seductive voice of carnal guidance and turned to wickedness.

For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt [yourselves], and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands. Deuteronomy 31:29

If corruption from replacing God's guidance with carnal guidance provoked Jehovah then, it can definitely be concluded it would have the same effect on America now.

As a direct effect of spiritual apostasy and moral awfulness the moral infrastructure of America became no longer established on the Laws of Jehovah, her foundation has become void of Jehovah's moral conscience, rendering America's foundation incapable of bearing the weight of even the smallest feather. If her foundation, void of Jehovah's righteous code cannot carry even the payload of the smallest feather without crumbling, how does it continue to carry the immeasurable weight of her continually compounded sins?

It can only be explained through the loving grace of God. It is by the Words of God's mouth that America's foundation hasn't already catastrophically crumbled under the weight of such tremendous sin. He continues to give the nation, government, and her people time to repent and turn from wickedness, for the time is coming when He will reveal the true integrity of America's foundation. Until then the foundation only has the illusion of stability, the same illusion of stability all sin attempts to project. Truth and history shows us all things void of integrity will surely be exposed by the integrity test of the Almighty hand of God.

According to the grace of God, which is given unto me, as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation, and another builds thereon. But let every man take heed how he builds thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man builds upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, and stubble; every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abides which he has built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. Know you not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seems to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He takes the wise in their own craftiness. 1 Corinthians 3:10-19

Through the repetition of moral awfulness every facet of selfish desire becomes harder to achieve without further advancement and deeper dedication to sin. Once deeper in sin the sinner becomes a slave to sin, with a slave master that demands forsaking all of God's instruction bit by bit. Having forsaken God and His Laws only seems to make the pursuit of such motives easier to achieve. Each step from God and His righteousness leads to a deeper saturation in sin, each step leading further from the light of God's divine Truth. Void of the Light found only in Truth the path becomes darker with every step. Once a heart is void of the Light that only knowledge of the Truth can shed, the path becomes foreign and the clarity of one's purpose becomes a vapor in the wind. When the eyes of the soul can no longer see the Light of Truth, wicked and perverse imaginations begin to take course. The mind is the devil's playground, without the strength of the Holy Spirit; NO one can resist the grasp of Satan's wicked grasp.

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God has showed it unto them. For the invisible things of God from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Romans 1:19-23

If a nation (as with man) continues on the path of destruction, destruction will eventually come. Depression and war seem to come once moral awfulness as a result of spiritual apostasy has come to full unrepentant maturity. In a spiritual application, sin has engulfed and consumed every part of the original Godly conscience and the hollow void that now remains becomes filled with perverted imaginations leading to immoral instability. Once any nation reaches this point, political anarchy has already overthrown the once moral and just government. A government void of God is a government bound for judgment.

Upon the final stage, as all throughout the path leading to destruction, God sends His messengers to urge the people and government of the nation recant their wicked ways and repent. Through history it seems that few have chosen the path of repentance, blinded by arrogance and pride, swallowed up by their own lust for sin, and content with pursing sin even after the effects of depression has consumed all they once were. Pride has caused too many nations (and people) to refuse repentance, pride has caused too many nations to become blind to the tell-tell signs of defeat, and pride will forever be the harbinger of a great fall.

As stated in the infallible Word of God, pride comes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall, thus the completion of political anarchy.

Pride comes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18

The fear of the LORD is to hate evil, pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the forward mouth, do I hate. Proverbs 8:13

Man may change, but GOD always stays the same. God's instruction has always stayed the same, His course has never changed, and His way is set for eternity. He established the moral code that man has long challenged and before man Satan too challenged His authority.

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. Romans 1:18-20

My belief is America is in the final stage of political anarchy. The hands of the nation are covered in the innocent blood of millions, permeated with homosexuality, women and men practicing and promoting unnatural affections, rebellion, promoting idols while the true God is torn down, wickedness, divorce, murder, theft, adultery, pornography, brutality, liars, etc....

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, and ruthless. Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. Romans 1:21-32

America has received a call to repent, just like Nineveh with Jonah, except unlike Nineveh she has failed to receive the warning within the message.

The days ahead are dark for America. She and her leadership are seconds away from placing the last foot across the final threshold to judgment. She has gotten here through stages, with each crossroad the chance was given to repent, a chance to return back to the blessing of God, and each time she continued down her own path.

Soon her destruction will come in the form of division. She will attempt to divide that which is not hers to divide, which will lead to America being divided by the hand of the Almighty God.

Arrogance and pride has blinded the government of America, has set her eyes upon the division of Israel, and the appeasement of her enemies.

Soon, with a passion unlike any other previous passions, the government leaders of this nation will say yes we can. The arrogance and pride to demand Israel's sacred land be given to the very enemy that demands her destruction and the streets to be filled with the blood of her people will not go unnoticed by the King that sits on the Highest Throne. This nation's blood will be required for such an evil and wicked petition.

For our government to tell Israel she cannot defend herself against what any other country would deem a verified threat to national security would not go unpunished. To financially support the very enemies that demand Israel's destruction, to pursue reckless dialog, and to vocally promote the advancement of Iranian nuclear capabilities doesn't strengthen the bond between Israel and America, it only makes America Israel's enemy.

In the coming months Israel will strike Iran and our government will cause America to turn her back on Israel. Within minutes and the proceeding hours judgment will rain down upon the land of America. She will be so violently moved that all will know it is the Almighty hand of Jehovah.

As America's turns her back upon Israel she will come face to face with her righteous Judge and ALL her sins not covered by the Blood of the Lamb will be called to remembrance, of which she will have no defense, and these sins will be the cause for such severe sentencing.

The weight of such sin will crush America; God will cause the burden stone of Israel to grind America into powder. America's collapse will be great and her destruction mighty. The whole world will look upon her once great and majestic shores, through the smoke and fire they will shout with great horror, "Was that not the mighty America, she has surely stored up the wrath of God and He has judged her."

Israel will be America's final straw. Jehovah is a sovereign, just, and righteous God. Those who bless Israel will be blessed; those who curse Israel will be cursed. The nations in the final days that burden themselves with her will be lacerated and cut down by the Almighty hand of God. America is right now on the threshold of cursing the apple of God's eye and the only Nation He has promised to defend.

The words are hard to swallow, even harder to share. America is already preparing the steps to isolate Israel and demand her obedience. Not just America, all nations are beginning to isolate and pressure Israel to fall in line. Just has Jehovah said all nations would rise against Israel He has said he will defend her. Once this final step is completed, Jehovah will intervene, America will first receiver her judgment, and the rest of the world will soon follow, setting the stage for the anti-Christ.

With this message we must all heed the warning. The days ahead for America are very dark, and her sins will cause God Almighty to consume her, but it doesn't have to be for you.

The Word of God tells us that if we will call upon His name He will hear our cry. If we will repent from our sins, He will forgive.

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13

Jesus Christ will never leave us or forsake us in the days ahead if we have made Him the King of our heart. Just like the children of Israel in during the plagues of Egypt, the judgments fell upon Egypt with power only found in the hand of God. Though the children of Israel where in the midst, God kept His hand of protection upon them.

For the LORD will not forsake his people for his great name's sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people. 1 Samuel 12:22

The Angel of Death is waiting upon the shores of America, waiting for the sound of God's command. Will you place the Blood of the Lamb upon the door post of your heart? Will you too prepare your house to serve the Lord? The days ahead will consume the wicked; men, women, children, young, and old will die who have chosen to continue in wickedness.

These days are coming, make a decision to live for Jesus Christ. Don't live in fear, only live in the way the Lord has directed us to live, in His arms is the only way of escape. Under His pavilion is the only protection from fear. And thru Him you can obtain peace that exceeds all understanding and in the days ahead, peace found through Truth will be the key. Jesus Christ is the Key to life eternal!

And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:3

God Bless, daniel
