God Bless America???
By David J. Stewart
Proverb 28:9, “He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.”
On September 11th, 2001, the unthinkable happened—two high-jacked jumbo jets flew into the World Trade Towers in New York city, killing nearly 3,000 innocent people. This was one of the saddest times in American history. A sleeping giant had been awoken to the reality that were NOT invincible. I am often reminded of those little gumball machines that my kids used to buy stuff from. You put in a quarter, turn the knob, and out comes a small plastic ball with a toy in it. Sadly, many people are living in a similar little plastic ball in their minds. Most Americans today are living in a little bubble. They are woefully ignorant of the forces working to destroy our freedoms. Our nation's love for sin has made us complacent and indifferent, blinded to reality.
I love America!!! This is my home. I am sickened by those who undermine and burn the United States flag. I heard a military veteran say the reason he went to war was to have a right to burn the U.S. flag. Though I understand his philosophy, it is simply wrong to desecrate the very symbol of our freedom. I see entertainers and singers on TV wearing the U.S. flag as t-shirts and shorts. Roseanne Barr was invited to sing the nation anthem at a ball game. Instead of singing the lyrics to the song, she literally sang blah, blah, blah blah. Although I understand why people are increasingly getting angry at the government, we should never abandon our patriotism. Patriotism is love for one's country, not loyalty to a certain political party or agenda (as the liars at FOX NEWS would have everyone to believe).
blatant crimes being committed by our government's top leaders shouldn't cause
us to despise the symbol of our freedom. Our flag is the symbol which represents
the lives of over one million men who died in battle to preserve our freedom
(and might I add, much envied freedom). People are dying in the oceans and in
shipping boxcars trying to illegally enter this blessed land of freedom. Why? To
have what the homeless man on the street has—opportunity and freedom. God has
been good to the United States. Yet, we spit in His face by glorifying and
continuing in sin, even naming one of our largest cities, “SIN CITY!”
Were the 911 Attacks God's hand of Judgment?
Someone asked me if I thought the World Trade Center disaster was God’s judgment on America? No, I don't believe so. What I do believe is that God gives mankind enough rope to hang himself, and we certainly are doing so in America today. Our nation is in spiritual ruin. Rock 'N' Roll has become the religion of our nation. As a consequence, homosexuality, feminism, pornography, nudity and abortion have become an integral part of the American culture. God will not bless such wickedness.
America is in sad spiritual condition. There is no way that the abortion (i.e., murder) of tens-of-millions of little children can be justified in the eyes of their Creator. God began those lives and men have no right to stop life. The legalized gambling, liquor, pornography, and prostitution in Nevada makes God angry. God hates sin. The nudity and sex-crazed filth that flows out of Hollywood is a cesspool of iniquity. The sinful and perverted filth that saturates today's theater and TV screens makes Sodom and Gomorrah look like nice places to live.
God is angry over the wickedness in our nation. We have become complacent and vulnerable as a nation, where criminals have guns but the innocent don’t. While 11,000 illegals flood across the U.S. border daily, American citizens continue to tolerate abusive airport screening, being treated like suspect terrorists, and being conditioned to accept the forming fascist Nazi-style Police State. We want to pretend that everything is going to get better over time; but history has shown that citizen complacency leads to Communist rule.
The American public has been duped. The 911 Attacks were intended to break our nation's spirit, to cause us to bow to our knees in submission to a new fascist Nazi-style government. Few Americans realize that Barack Obama is a closet Communist, who is simply furthering the Police State which was initiated under the Bush administration. The American public today is woefully complacent and ignorant concerning the truth, which will ultimately lead to our undoing as a free nation.
The American people have been deceived about the “War
On Terror.” It doesn't exist! It is a cleverly devised plot to convince
American citizens to surrender their freedoms in exchange for security (but we
are losing both!). If the truth be known, the 911 Attacks were
an inside job.
God Won't Bless False Religion!
We have a demonic form of false religion in society today, where people of all faiths unite in worship of an undefined, multi-faith, all-purpose God. This hideous religion is unofficially called "New Age." This is also the false god of the Masons, known as "The Great Architect." New Age basically allows you to believe anything you want, so long as you don't promote Biblical Christianity. We hear much talk about “spiritual experiences” and “spiritual energy” from such false prophets as Oprah Winfrey and James Van Praagh. This "new" religion (which is NOT really new) says, “Hey, I don’t care what you believe about God, let’s all just unite together because God is love.” The problem is that New Age rejects Jesus Christ as the Savior. New Age is rooted in humanist and occult philosophies. Humanism exalts man's will above God's Word, causing men to become their own gods. God will not bless a nation that worships false gods.
Humanism teaches that mankind is inherently good (not sinful), that he is able to resolve his own problems through the unity of human effort (not through God), and that the Word of God is not to be taken seriously. I recently heard President George Bush Jr. quoting out of the Qur'an to impress the Muslims, errantly claiming that we all worship the same God. President Bush said that there are many religions which lead to God. President Bush is wrong, the ONLY way to God the Father is through the Son, Jesus Christ (John 14:6).
It is better to be divided over truth, than to be united by error. Unfortunately, most religions today are united by error. This is not what the Bible teaches. 2nd Corinthians 6:17, "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you." Every believer is to separated from unbelievers. There is much compromise today under the pretense of Christian love; but it is unbiblical and sinful comprise with the heathen world.
The Scriptures foretold of these Last Days. The stage is being set for the Antichrist to come. The one-world government is being formed. When will Jesus return? We do not know. However, I personally believe it will be soon because of the events of the world today. There were no planes, jets, cars, trucks, computers, electricity, phones, radios, TV's, microwave ovens or nuclear weapons two hundred years ago. Mankind will destroy himself with all these new toys (such as nuclear weapons) if the Lord doesn’t return. This is only my opinion, but I am confident that the Lord will return by 2030. Again, this is just my opinion. The Scriptures plainly teach that no man knows when the Lord will return.
today is saturated with false religions: Catholicism, Lutheranism, Church of
Christ, Mormonism, Seventh-Day Adventism, Jehovah's Witnesses, Moonies,
Scientology, Judaism, Islam, et cetera. These religions all pervert the
Scriptures and teach a works-based salvation. However, the Word of God adamantly
states that salvation is a free gift, which does not require any human effort
(Romans 4:5; 6:23; 10:3-4).
A Proper Christian Perspective
I don't believe we should be hateful towards unbelievers as Christians. The Bible teaches that "...God is no respecter of persons" (Acts 10:34). We are to love all people, regardless of our differences. However, the ungodly will never be accepted by the righteous, nor will the righteous be accepted by the ungodly. What fellowship hath darkness with light? I am simply saying that God will NOT bless a nation, a city, a company, a church, or an individual that glorifies sin. It is NOT discrimination because preachers preach against sin; anymore than it is discrimination when homosexuals openly condemn Bible-believing, Christ-honoring Christians. It is Christians today who are being discriminated against. The Bible makes a clear statement on this matter, "An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked" (Proverb 29:27). Homosexuals and Bible-believing Christians will never live together in harmony, because one despises the other.
The Bible is the enemy of the heathen world. I'm not talking about the liberal, watered-down, wishy-washy corrupt bibles like the New International Version [NIV] or the English Standard Version [ESV]. I'm talking about the King James Bible of 1611. The the NIV translators (some of whom are homosexuals) removed the word "sodomite" completely? Satan loves the NIV.
God will not
bless a nation that perverts with His Word. Most of America's churches today use
the deplorable NIV Bible, because few pastors and preachers love the Lord more
AMERICA: A Sin-Loving nation!
How sad that so many folks today have no regard for God's Law. They enjoy their freedom in the United States, but they abuse their freedom by shamelessly committing sin. God will not bless a nation that glorifies and continues in sin.
We're in Trouble with God!
The battle today is between man's will and God's Law—between man's word and God's Word. Men say they have the “right” to commit sodomy, but God says they don't. Women say they have the “right” to murder their own children, but God says they don't. God bless America??? He already has my friend, but His hand of blessing is quickly departing. Our nation is in massive debt. Millions of Americans are unemployed and have lost their homes. A Police State is being formed.
We have been blessed greatly in the United States. Did you know that 2.4 billion people in the world survive on less than $2 a day? Many Many Americans spend ten times that just for lunch. We have been blessed my friend! Unfortunately, many folks are squandering their freedom which was handed to them on a silver-platter. We owe our freedom to God and the men who died to secure it.
This nation was established on Biblical principles. Barack Obama publicly stated in 2008 that "America is no longer a Christian nation." Unfortunately, Obama is correct. We are today, a heathen nation. America today is more Communist than ever. More and more people are expecting the government to take care of them. More and more the government is controlling our lives. We are living in a time when the government is forcing parents to drug their own children against their will. We are living in a time when a man is often considered guilty until proven innocent. We are living in a time when a mother can murder a father's baby against his will. This nation's days of freedom are numbered! America is a sinfully proud, arrogant, stiffnecked and irresponsible nation. The murder of Terri Schiavo is evidence of that fact.
—Congressman James A. Traficant Jr., June 20, 2000
The godless Supreme Court removed prayer and God's Word from public school classrooms and the curriculum. Of course, kids are still being taught the fairytale of Evolution as if it were a fact. Our nation is in big trouble with God. Predictions have been made that TV producers will be airing full-frontal nudity within a couple years. America is a perverted nation—sex, sex, sex, money, money, money. How much longer can we continue in our perverted ways as a nation before God says, “enough!”
God did not tolerate the sins of Sodom (and they had no Bible, nor preachers!). God made an example of Sodom and Gomorrah of what would happen to all those who live ungodly. Jude 1:7, "Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire." Today, we are surrounded by preaching and the Word of God, yet multitudes in society spit in God's face.
The greatest sin of our day is indifference! Most of the talk and entertainment shows do nothing but glamorize and glorify sin and rebellion against God. It's all a big joke to them. Nothing really seems to matter anymore when it comes to decency, God and morality. The Bible says, "Fools make a mock at sin" (Proverb 14:9). On a recent Entertainment Tonight show, rock legend Gene Simons of the Rock 'N' Roll band, “KISS,” bragged about having sex with 4,600 women throughout his career. Simons is no American hero.
Satanist, Ozzy Osbourne, praised by millions of fans around the world,
blasphemes God in much of his music. MTV just signed Ozzy up for a twenty
million dollar deal (because people can't get enough of him) to continue his
Osbourne Series. Ozzy with his upside down crosses, antichrist lyrics and
freak image has weaseled his way into the hearts of the American people. Many
people feel like losers so they can naturally relate to a guy like “Ozzy”—he's
weird, an outcast, a freak, strange, rejected, controversial, rebellious, etc,
etc. So many people don't like themselves, their life, their job, their spouse,
et cetera. This is the nature of the materialistic society in which we live.
People are stuck on themselves. This is the American
A Sexually Degenerate Society
In December of 2010, the Parents Television Council publicized a study condemning television executives who exploit underaged teenaged girls for profit. The tragic part is that many, if not most, Americans defend such evil. Most people don't care, but they watch such filth on their TV, and so they contribute to the problem. It's far past the time for Americans to rid their life of TV. I don't care how much character you may think you have, you will see and hear things on TV that are going to hurt you spiritually. I guarantee you that Christians who watch TV everyday don't memorize and spend much time, if any, in the holy Scriptures. Even the best TV programs still have sexually suggestive commercials. Television has become synonymous with lasciviousness, sensuality and every form of sexual immorality. No wonder the United States is falling apart. We have tempted God's hand of judgment long enough! Is TV your idol?
God has blessed America mightily and it's up to us whether or not He continues to do so. I believe that God has spared judgment on America BECAUSE of the remaining Bible-believing, Christ-honoring, soul-winning Christians who still serve the Lord. Thank God for the Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches across America, and for others who are loyal to the Word of God. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ spoke over 200 billion galaxies into existence on the 4th day of creation? What awesome power! Do you not realize that the universe has no end? How can scientists explain this? Do you realize that Jesus Christ has no beginning nor end? Jesus is the beginning and the end. This should not be surprising when one considers that time could not have had a beginning. Again, how can scientists explain this? When did time itself begin?
In conclusion, I believe God’s judgment is inevitably approaching the United States for our iniquities (i.e., the acceptance of sodomy as a legitimate lifestyle, idolatry, same-sex marriages, the murder of tens-of-millions of children through brutal abortion, covetousness, legalized booze and gambling, adultery, divorce and the breakdown of the family, the humanistic public school system, the teaching of Evolution to America's children, the murder of Terri Schiavo, cursing in God's name, blatant crime in government, the vile and perverted filth oozing out of Hollywood, pornography, the Satanic Catholic religion, spiritual wickedness in high places, et cetera). How long can we continue down this path before God says, “enough!” How long can we continue before we bring judgment upon ourselves? Our day of reckoning is coming!
I won't say that the World Trade Center disaster was God’s judgment on America; however, we are due for something bad if we continue in sin. We claim to be “one nation under God,” while murdering the unborn. We boast “In God We Trust,” while allowing soft-porn to infiltrate every avenue of advertising and entertainment. Do we really trust in God??? I think not. The God we serve in America is our own belly. Philippians 3:18,19, "For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things." Most Americans today serve their belly, i.e., their own selfish desires, goals and ambitions. America has forgotten the God of the Bible.
Recently in Chicago, a street was named in honor of Hue Hefner (founder of Playboy Inc). Another building in Chicago was given landmark status in honor of a homosexual who lived there in the 1920’s. God will remove his hand of protection from this nation if we don’t repent of our evil ways. We are going over a moral waterfall very rapidly in America—I fear there is no turning back at this point. Americans are sinfully proud, arrogant and stiff-necked. God has blessed the United States and its territories in the past, but has no reason to do so today. Our nation's love for sin will hinder us from receiving future blessings from God.
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD” (Psalm 33:12).
Praise Jesus Christ, our God and Savior!!!
Friend, life is not something to be squandered away. There is a God, and He has written a Book to you and me called the Holy Bible. Do you not realize that trillions of years won't even be the beginning of eternity? This should scare you greatly if you don't know the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior? Revelation 10:6 tells us that the day will come “that there should be time no longer.” If you go to Hell, you will be forgotten for eternity, suffering in the torments of hellfire. Have your sins been forgiven, washed away by Jesus' cleansing blood? Are you a born-again child of God? God desires for all men to repent.

Morality Cannot Be Legislated
GLSEN is an anti-American, anti-family, anti-Christian organization that works relentlessly to homosexualize our schools. Although they use the word “straight” in the name of their organization (i.e., Gay Lesbian Straight Educational Network), its really a tool to silence and persecute Christian children. Even the mention of homosexuality being a sin will be severely punished if GLSEN gets their diabolical law passed in Washington D.C., called the Safe Schools Improvement Act. Any child who gets upset with another child will be able to get them into SERIOUS trouble by lying, claiming sexual harassment (requiring parents to hire lawyers and putting them into THE SYSTEM of years to come, and a fascist CPS investigation). There is NOTHING good that will come from anti-harassment laws.
You cannot legislate morality, and that is what our nation is attempting to do. As our nation increasingly idolizes Late Night Shows who blaspheme Jesus Christ and mock the Bible; and target our children with singing whores like Katy Perry, who blasphemes God and sings about boys sticking their hands in her skin tight pants; teaching children the lies of Evolution; encouraging them to fornicate and live in sin against God... our youth are going to follow and serve Satan, by becoming lesbians, whores, feminists and God-haters. Of course children are going to grow up devoid of any morals. America houses more inmates in prison than any other nation.
We have become an insane society of oppressive laws, extreme prison sentences, control-grids, surveillance, spy-cameras and Homeland INsecurity. We have sold our souls to the government for security, giving up our freedoms in exchange. Tyrants have taken control of our nation and economy. They have given our jobs away. The have stolen our homes. Now they're groping our genitals at the airports. Where will this all lead?
America's second U.S. President, John Adams, stated that the U.S. Constitution was only intended for a society restrained by morality and religious beliefs...
The more that America delves into wickedness and lawlessness, the more militarized our local police departments are becoming, the more laws are being enacted to deal with the problem. Nothing less than
A nation that does not honor God cannot (and will not) be blessed of God. Psalm 9:17 curses any nation to Hell that forgets God. America has certainly abandoned the God of the Bible. Tens-of-millions of Americans flock to SIN CITY to commit wickedness. What HAPPENS in Vegas is RECORDED in Heaven! (Revelation 20:12). Informing people about the tyranny that is upon us will not save our nation. Waking people up will not save our nation. Do you know why? It's because the wicked don't care, they just want to eat, drink, marry, and party.
This was the situation before the flood of Noah's day. Noah preached the righteousness of Jesus Christ for 120-years and not one person got saved. Only Noah and his immediate family got onto the ark. That shows how wicked the world had become. Jesus said that the Last Days would return as it was in Noah's day (Matthew 24:37-38). No wonder Jesus said in Luke 18:8, “I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”
America has been in spiritual trouble for the past 100-years and now it has finally caught up with us economically and in every other way. Our educational system is a mess. Illegal and legal drugs are everywhere. Feminism has engineered women to be intolerant of their less than perfect husbands, divorce has skyrocketed due to an agenda promoting divorce, to the point where young people aren't getting married anymore. The criminals behind the New World Order have been working to corrupt, subvert and destroy America for hundreds of years, and it has escalated with advancements in technology. We are entering into a cashless society, and a surveillance spy society of tyranny, crazy laws, and oppression. TSA airport workers are now sticking their hands down passenger's pants and skirts, as a way to condition the American people to accept full-naked-body-scanners. They want to condition the public to accept tyranny, to lay down and take the abuse, to weaken our resistance. A Police State is upon us!
Morality cannot be legislated. If a nation's people won't obey God, then a Police State will be created to control and oppress them. Our nation's weakness is our oppressor's strength. No nation throughout history has ever survived that shook their fist in God's face. SIN CITY is nothing less than spitting in God's face. Shame on the United States! God has been so good to us, and yet we are so unthankful. It is man's sin that allows Satan to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10).
We have brought God's curse upon America. There are many patriots trying to wake people up and salvage America, but it will not succeed unless a large enough percentage of Americans repent toward God.
