God Punishes America
When you talk to the average Christian and you tell them that America is being punished by God they would get offended. This goes for people from another country. Yet, we are told in the Bible that God does punish His people.
You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. (Amo 3:2)
God has a special relationship with His people – unlike all the other people in the world. It is because of this relationship that God punishes us. Reading on…
Can two walk together, except they be agreed? (Amo 3:3)
The answer to this is no. You have millions of Christians, including the pastors, who say they can walk with God but they don’t have to agree with Him. In other words, we don’t have to obey Him and follow His laws.
Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing? (Amo 3:4)
A lion does not cry out (roar) if he has no prey; they only do this after they do have a prey – to keep others away. In other words, God tells us that there is a ’cause and effect, one thing follows another.’ And so it is with us: if we don’t follow what He wants us to do, there will be an effect – in this case, a punishment.
Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it? (Amo 3:6)
Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. (Amo 3:7)
When a trumpet is blown in a city, it’s a warning that the enemy is coming. This is ’cause and effect.’ We are also told in Amos 3.6 that if there is an evil in the city God caused it, in that, we had done something and the result is something happens to us. The ‘effect’ is what we call evil and God is talking from our point of view. An example would be allowing all these Muslims in the city. When there is a rape, for example, we call it an evil, but who really brought this on? We did – by allowing them in our country in the first place. Thus, it’s the natural consequences of braking God’s Laws, Statues and Judgements. God does know about what is going on in our respective countries.
In Amos 3.7 we are told that God does nothing without revealing it to us. The sad part is, that most of us are blind or ignorant of what is going on. If you study God’s word, it will not come as a surprise of what happens in our country – as we have been warned in the Bible. Yahweh does disclose to His select servants what is going on. I say, ‘select’ as the biggest preachers, those with the money, those that are on TV do not reveal it to their congregation – but that is another story.
Many Christians and those who are not Christians but call themselves Patriots put the blame on certain other groups of people who cause evil in our country; they blame the communists, the New World Order group, and other assorted antichrists but are they really the cause? Sure, they do the stealing, lying and pillaging but who allowed them to get in control? Who allowed them in our country to begin with?
I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: (Isa 45:5)
That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. (Isa 45:6)
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. (Isa 45:7)
When Christians do something wrong God brings evil upon us. There is a logical reason for all this trouble that happens and God knows about this evil. He says, “I the Lord do all these things.” Many would think that this is blasphemy. Christian ignore verses like this, while atheist will use this to say why they don’t believe in God; that He is a mean God if they believe at all.
God said that we are a special people to Him and He will punish us for our iniquities. So, how will He punish us if not to bring evil upon us? If evil comes upon us there is a reason, and we are also told that God will not to anything to us without revealing to us why He is doing it. Reading the Bible will tell you why. You can read Deuteronomy 28 chapter – the chapter of the ‘blessings and curses’ to find out the reason.
Many people fight the evil that is the effect and not the cause. The cause of all this is what we have done. An example is, we let all these people in who hate White Christians, as a result some of them start robbing. What is our response? The cry goes out that “we need more policemen. They need more money, they need more equipment.” And when they don’t get this, the people complain. They don’t look at their own preachers, for example, who supports all this immigration; who houses them and feed them. They don’t look at what God says in what kind of people should come in our country in the first place.
And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know judgment? (Mic 3:1)
Who did God speak to? The heads of Jacob and Israel. In other words, the political leaders. These are the people who are suppose to know judgement. This is because of disobedience by the nation – a warning by God of what is to come. History showed us that political leaders in ancient Israel did not listen to those that had God’s truth, they were sent into the Assyrian Captivity.
Who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones; (Mic 3:2)
This is so very true today.
Then shall they cry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings. (Mic 3:4)
We often hear preachers pray to God about the problems in the land but we read here that God does not hear their prayers. Why should He? When we continue to do what we should not do on one hand, then, on the other hand we ask God to take this evil away. It’s like putting your hand in fire and not expect to get burned – as long as you do that you will continue to get burned.
Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him. (Mic 3:5)
This is what we have today – big time – preachers on TV like Joel Osteen, Ken Copeland and those who mimic them in churches throughout the country. These are people who say that the Law was done away with; these are the people who are “politically correct” (but biblically wrong) on about every subject you can think of. It is these preachers who cause God’s people to error.
Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them. (Mic 3:6)
Because of the lies of the preachers, God sent darkness to them; they are completely ignorant of what to tell the people; they shall not be able to preach the word of God.
Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God. (Mic 3:7)
These preachers are so blind that they think that God is dead, while others are preaching what Satan said in the Garden of Eden – “that we shall be like gods.” Well, this is exactly what is going on; this is what preachers like Hinn, Kopeland and others say. Their congregation are no better as they follow these people. Thus, it stands to reason that they are blinded to the word of God, too. You just can’t reach these people with the truth.
But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin. (Mic 3:8)
What are we, as disciples of Christ to do? We are to tell our people of their transgression. And, it is only to the House of Jacob and the House of Israel. We are to tell them of our sins. This is what Micah and other prophets of old did when there was evil in the land.
America and all European nations have more evil in their land than ever before, yet what do mainline pastors talk about? How good everything is; send your money to Jesus and He will bless you (Wealth and Prosperity Gospel). They do not say what we have done wrong to allow this evil in our land.
