What is it that causes a man, people, or nation to fall from "Grace" with GOD, and tumble headlong into madness? Why is it that when the blessing comes to a person or a nation, that the lessons of time and life that lead you too the Blessings of GOD, are soon forgotten when enjoying the rewards and good bounty that it provides? In the book of Deuteronomy, GOD warned the Children of Israel about this tendency of his people to forget "It is HE who gives you the Power to get Wealth".
Deuteronomy 8:17-18 (King James Version) 17 And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.
18 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Right now more than ever before, in America we need to remember this warning "not to forget why we have been given so much". GOD also described what would happen if the Hebrew Nation (and America) did forget HIS warning. So often human beings that have achieved any success at all, will start to worship "the thing" rather than the one who made it possible to get "the thing" in the first place. Whether its money, cars, houses, someone too love in your life, a job or fame, it all has to be secondary to "The LORD"! The warning in Deuteronomy is germane for us as a country to not worship other gods, or in the case of America.....other "Things or IDOLS". Take for instance the death of Michael Jackson, a very talented individual. The very first concert my parents allowed me to attend was "The Jackson 5". Like most, I celebrated his unique abilities to sing, dance and thrill an audience. However, Michael Jackson was just like you and I. He was a man that would live and die like the rest of humanity (except the catching away should come first). People around the world worshipped the ground for which he walked. There can be no better example of "idol worship", for which the wrath of ALL MIGHTY GOD is kindled, than what we saw during his life as an entertainer and the circus which followed his death! If the world will easily submit to the worship of an entertainer, how much easier will people fall down and worship the Anti-Christ when his time comes. Christians should ask themselves "Are you truly serving YESHUA"? Bishops who's family business is slanderous, preachers that teach a feel good theology, ministers, deacons, and all Christians should take a look in the mirror, and judge yourselves now so you can correct anything that is not the truth of GOD. We must not pretend to Love GOD, and do as the world does.
Titus 1:7-9 (King James Version) 7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; 8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; 9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
The nation as a whole is losing its sense of what is right and what's wrong. What is morality? Where does it come from? One thing for certain, the three founding documents of this country, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, all were based upon the Holy Bible and Jesus Christ which established the moral standards by which the leaders were to govern the people and legislate laws. The most deviously contrived lie ever told to the "American People" is that there is a separation of Church and State. This is a deceptively, "pernicious distortion" of what the founders have said, and what they were attempting to bring forth in our country. Yes, there is no established "State Religion" nor should there be and this is what the founders had in mind. However, the argument has morphed into a specious belief that "one can and should separate belief in JESUS CHRIST from decision making while holding public service. This is another falsehood that the Left persist in spewing. In fact, this country was based on the HOLY BIBLE and as a matter of history the U. S. Capitol Building was used as a Church for Sunday Church Services open to the public. It would be filled with men, women, and children worshipping up to four hours in the morning, and a couple of hours in the evening services. CLICK THE LINK: Capitol building had been used as a church even for years before it was occupied by Congress Let's just look at some of the convictions the founders held about the country for which they were bringing to pass.
“ The general principles upon which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principals of Christianity… I will avow that I believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.” • “[July 4th] ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.”
–John Adams in a letter written to Abigail on the day the Declaration was approved by Congress
John Adams and John Hancock:
We Recognize No Sovereign but God, and no King but Jesus! [April 18, 1775]
Samuel Adams: | Portrait of Sam Adams
“He who made all men hath made the truths necessary to human happiness obvious to all… Our forefathers opened the Bible to all.” [ "American Independence," August 1, 1776. Speech delivered at the State House in Philadelphia]
“ Let divines and philosophers, statesmen and patriots, unite their endeavors to renovate the age by impressing the minds of men with the importance of educating their little boys and girls, inculcating in the minds of youth the fear and love of the Deity… and leading them in the study and practice of the exalted virtues of the Christian system.” [October 4, 1790]
These men understood that the nation for which they labored so dearly to create could not stand without the principles and laws that GOD gave on Mount Sinai. Most had an understanding of the magnitude of the consequences of not having the Christian Faith as the basis for our laws, institutions and people.
Charles Carroll - signer of the Declaration of Independence
"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure...are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments." [Source: To James McHenry on November 4, 1800.]
What do you suppose has happened to our country? Can you guess? Do you feel that you have been lied too? We have allow our educational institutions to teach our kids many of the lies that our society believes today. It is caused by the intellectual knowledge that is disseminated to our children in classrooms without the foundation of Holy GOD's truth. This is a diabolically clever instrument of Hell, to leave out the total truth about our heritage and the foundations for which our nation (America) was established and birthed into History upon. The "People of America" who believe in these truths to be evident are beginning to wake up from their long slumber. You are witnessing this in the town hall meetings on cable news that's taking place because of the healthcare reconstruction legislation that Congress and The Administration (Obama) is trying to ram down our throats. We don't trust our government, because we see them trying to change the constitution, evoking a global community strategy on the people, telling our right lies to get in office, and excepting bribes from special interest while not caring at all what we the people think and demand. Some people are angry at the fact that many who voted for Obama (mostly Democrats and Independents) are beginning to see that they are not getting the "Change that they can believe in", but instead, find themselves feeling like they were too gullible and a easy mark during the presidential election of 2008. Most are angry at themselves for not being aware enough to have seen through what Obama and the Democratic leaders really stood for. "If you believe in the things on the "Left" and call yourself a liberal, then you are at odds with the things of GOD". The Left don't want the LORD GOD or his Commandments in any of the things of government, and go to court at every turn to try and have them erased from existence. "What FOOLS the are"! Look at what Benjamin Franklin had to say about a government devoid of Almighty GOD:
Benjamin Franklin: | Portrait of Ben Franklin
“God governs in the affairs of man. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured in the Sacred Writings that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. I firmly believe this. I also believe that, without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel” –Constitutional Convention of 1787 | original manuscript of this speech
Mr. Franklin, like the other founders of this country understood the basic principal for which they built this nation, and that is The Holy Scriptures. We are a "Christian Nation" regardless of what anyone says or thinks about the issue. The silliest argument I've ever heard -and I pondered this as a child- was the argument that a man can separate his beliefs from the public office he is in service too! I'll ask the questions too you, "Reader, can you separate your life experiences from who you are? No you can't! In the same way, if you believe "man was made in the image of GOD", and that JESUS CHRIST is alive and is Lord of Lords and King of Kings, then how does one separate this "Truth" when serving the public. What happens when the elected officials who we entrust with leadership to serve the people, rule without a basis for moral standards. Well, the answer is what you see happening right now in our country. Our leaders by denying the outward public worship and acknowledgement that Jesus Christ is our source of everything, are perpetuating this false idiom. These same politicians are condemning us to destruction, by way of the "Sinful Nature of Man", which is indwelling within us since the fall in the Garden of Eden. The Holy Bible has been the standard by which we have made our laws, helped the poor, reached out to other nations, gone to war, and judged what is right and wrong. It was recently reported that The Morning Prayer that is held before every session of Congress is sparsely attended and is no longer sought after as a means of seeking divine guidance by most of our leaders, if any. "This is a dangerous thing for them to let happen"! They should be proclaiming that it is HIS words that are our source for everything we have and hope to come! Consider the fact that Congress can’t seem to find solutions to our most basic of problems and that there is a great chasm between the two parties. I can say with all humility that the issue is simply that the “KING OF THE UNIVERSE” (YHYW) , WITHOUT HIM, WE CAN DO NOTHING. Organizations like the ACLU and many others have been allowed to influence these representatives should be abolished from our nation, according to the Holy Scriptures that say:
Do not bring a detestable thing into your house or you, like it, will be set apart for destruction. Utterly abhor and detest it, for it is set apart for destruction.
I say this because many like this organization has lead the way with every sort of judicial challenge against JESUS the CHRIST and GOD the FATHER! Obama and the extreme left of the Democratic Party represent the very essence of the non-believer. They are the platform by which Satanic agendas are conspired and hatched. Sure they all profess the church of some sort, and we all know what Rev. Wright professes and that Obama attended his church for over twenty years. But do they believe in the actionable GOD of the Torah and Brit Ha Dasha (Better Covenant), that cares about the affairs of men? Or do they think they have they removed HIS presence by denying the Power of HIS Glory?
Proverbs 26:24-26 (New International Version) 24 A malicious man disguises himself with his lips, but in his heart he harbors deceit. 25 Though his speech is charming, do not believe him, for seven abominations fill his heart. 26 His malice may be concealed by deception, but his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.
The Democrats are being exposed to the people and the assembly of the Nation. They are beginning to realize that Americans, for the most part are still conservative, and will fight to keep this country America, and are rejecting what we all perceive to be a take over of this government by the government. Someone else's pipe dream. Question: Why would our healthcare system need dismantling totally? I surmise that this is just the beginning of troubles as the Bible has stated. There's something more sinister taking place and its all coming at us with successive issue after issue, all requiring two (2) things. First, an abundance of wealth transference into the various programs they introduce, and secondly, and perhaps more importantly, built into these new means of government spending is a Machiavellian scheme to get the American people to surrender OUR RIGHTS, POWER, AND FREEDOM. Bondage without the artifacts of true slavery as we have witness throughout history, but nevertheless bondage by way of "legislative laws" which they hope will be overwhelming too the people. Obama is the curse that GOD has allowed to happen, because of the disobedience of the country, by electing those who stand in opposition to JESUS the CHRIST! Remember that the populace wanted Obama for their Leader or King (referring to Obama being hailed as "The One") Just like in I Samuel 8, GOD has given America what she has been asking for, and that is Obama who has been even called by some on the left "god".

There are always references in the BIBLE as to how GOD does things, whether its punishment, blessings, correction, provision, or destruction. The Bible is an intimate look at a Holy and Sovereign GOD. Here is what the results will be because of America choosing the Leftist.
1 Samuel 8:6-20 (King James Version) 6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.
7 And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
America this is exactly what you have done by voting this man into office, because you said in your hearts, "We don't want to do things the same way as we have before". In comes Barrack Obama, a man you knew nothing about -only what the press showed and told to you- and "You turned from GOD and Rejected HIM". You knew who the left was and what they stood for and believed and how they wanted to change things in our country! You're now mad that this man is doing what he said he would do? And the LORD continued to say:
1 Samuel 8:10-12 (King James Version) 10 And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king. 11 And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you:
He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. 12 And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; 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.
Obama's Czars are his captains and they all are in charge of what is being developed in the Healthcare plan, the fake stimulus plan, the omnibus plan and the other major capital sucking ideas that's coming down the pipe. Just like in the days of Samuel's time, these captains are to create bondage on the people. How are our children going to pay for the things they are suggesting? I would prefer for the government to give every American Citizen One Million Dollars to stimulate the economy. After all, it is our money, and if you are forty to fifty years of age, you probably have given that much in taxes. Lets continue:
1 Samuel 8:13-18 (King James Version) 13 And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. 14 And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. 15 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.
16 And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work. 17 He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants. 18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.
What the reader gets from these passages (I'm paraphrasing) is that GOD is saying that "the King you want will bring you into bondage, by way of taking your possessions and re-distributing to his servants" . The stimulus package accomplished this for Obama by giving to all those who got him elected, as he had promised. They are not interested in ten percent, they want fifty two percent of everything, so they can own the corporation, which goes by the name "America"! Samuel continues and ends with:
1 Samuel 8:19-20 (King James Version) 19 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us; 20 That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.
This is the sum of the whole 2008 Presidential Election. The voice of Samuel was warning them of their folly by looking to a man to be king over them. Notice how they wanted to be like all the other nations of their time. We are the same way, in that I constantly hear about America being a part of a "New World Order", or as Al Gore and others constantly retort "Global Community". They are trying to erase the American identity, and merge it with some monstrosity akin to the old "Frankenstein Monster" creation that was made by a man's attempt to out do a HOLY GOD.
“ The doctrines of Jesus are simple, and tend to all the happiness of man.” “Of all the systems of morality, ancient or modern which have come under my observation, none appears to me so pure as that of Jesus.” "I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus."
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever.” (excerpts are inscribed on the walls of the Jefferson Memorial in the nations capital) [Source: Merrill . D. Peterson, ed., Jefferson Writings, (New York: Literary Classics of the United States, Inc., 1984), Vol. IV, p. 289. From Jefferson’s Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVIII, 1781.]
“ We’ve staked our future on our ability to follow the Ten Commandments with all of our heart.” “We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” [1778 to the General Assembly of the State of Virginia]
Farewell Address: The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion" ...and later: "...reason and experience both forbid us to expect, that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle..."
TO THE NATION: I pray that the punishment to come upon us from ALMIGHTY GOD will be swift and short lived, if it is too late to be reversed through our REPENTANCE and SUPPLICATION to HIM! Pray for Our Nation and Leaders to repent too GOD! Also, take action, by speaking out to those leaders in you home state and federal government. Let them know that you are not going to sit idly by and let them ruin what the LORD has made! Pray for America and Israel, for we are ONE under GOD! I SUGGEST THAT YOU LET THEM KNOW YOU BELIEVE IN THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL THAT NEVER SLUMBERS OR SLEEPS! TELL THEM THAT YOU BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST AND IF THEY DON'T, WE WILL GET RID OF THE LOT! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! WE WANT OPEN QUESTION TOWN HALL MEETINGS FOR ALL PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS FROM THIS DAY FORWARD, SO THAT WE CAN EXAMINE THESE WHO WOULD BE LEADERS. BY THE PEOPLE NOT BY THE PRESS!
