A Spiritual Perspective of America’s Decline

In response to “Was The Garden Of Eden A Prison”:

A very well written article with a very interesting and provocative, thank you Marjorie!

I have been thinking a lot myself about the spiritual reasons for our nation’s predicament recently. We have a tyrannical President, a decidedly left leaning, dependency focused Senate, and a House of Representatives, that, even though there is a Republican majority, is totally inept at using that majority and so, caves to the demands of the “Big Government Left” again and again.

Then I look at where we are as a nation, with a majority of our citizens giving only lip service to their Creator, if that, with murder (abortion) on demand, and with the acceptance of homosexuality being taught in our schools.  And I wonder, is God using our current circumstances as a warning that we are drifting far far from where we need to be in relationship to Him?

When I read the Old Testament stories of God’s dealings with the nation of Israel when they went their own way and left God, I see some interesting parallels. True, God has not empowered the enemies of the United States to take us into captivity, nevertheless, our Constitutional form of government that guarantees life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, is fast slipping from our grasp.  It would not be a far reach to say that our American way of life is being taken into captivity.

So, my question is, what must change to reverse our current course?

At this point, I fear that even a turn toward Conservatism would be only short lived, and that within an election cycle or two, we would find ourselves right back where we are now. And I say this because of the reasons listed above.  So long as the heart of America is in disregard of her Lord, little we do will be of consequence until her heart is turned back.

I strongly believe that the only hope for America lies in the following biblical passage:

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 CHR 7:14, KJV

It is time for America and Americans to pray.

  1. Yes indeed- We are in deep weeds. You can’t make up the stuff we are witnessing! So glad Christ is in my heart- No fear- for me.

    • True! I am encouraged daily by the fact that Jesus is coming, and it really seems as if the time may be drawing near.

      But that also means that time is getting very short! Those of us who have tasted of God’s grace need to redouble our efforts in evangelism, that every last possible lost soul may be saved before our Lord’s return.

  2. You’ve departed from God — American Christians — BY MAJORITY!!!

    #1. You are so ignorant of God’s Word – and so REBELLIOUS TOWARDS YOUR CREATOR — you are HUMANIST in your doctrine declaring you were saved by YOUR OWN FREE WILL.

    #2. You have REJECTED GOD’S WILL — you have REJECTED worship of God as Sovereign (KING) and YOU HAVE DECLARED that the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS A DEMOCRACY RULED BY THE FREE WILL OF MAN.

    So, God has given you over to MOB RULE and THE RULE OF THE 666 BEAST SYSTEM.

    You have departed from God. If you will return, then HEAR GOD!! GOD IS SOVEREIGN1! YOU WERE SAVED BY HIS SOVEREIGN ELECTION!! YOU WERE NOT SAVED BY YOUR FREE WILL!! HIS KINGDOM IS A MONARCHY OF GOD — NOT A DOMINION OF MAN IN FREE WILL DEMOCRACY MOB RULE!!

    You are GETTING just exactly what your spiritual MAKEUP in the church has produced: the rule of man — not God — in AMERICA. And you see what a BEAST that man really is — for the number of the beast is 666 and this is the number of a man — and his FREE WILL.

    #3. You don’t even know enough SOUND DOCTRINE to know that the body of Christ is a nation that is to be SEPARATE from unbelievers — and YOU BLINDLY think you “honor God” as you pledge allegiance to a flag of this world under the world system of man and Satan — and you declare UNION WITH UNBELIEVERS AND THIS WORLD AND THE WORLD SYSTEM — and you wouldn’t even LISTEN TO A PROPHET OR AN APOSTLE tell you TO STOP PLEDGING ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IN UNION WITH UNBELIEVERS!! SECULAR HUMANISTS IN YOUR PRACTICES!! IDOLATRY!! AND YOU CALL IT “CHRISTIAN” AND YOU THINK GOD WILL ACCEPT YOUR HUMANIST NATIONALISM AND YOUR FREE WILL DOCTRINE!!

    And God’s CURSE is upon the nation — and YOU ALREADY ARE UNDER CAPTIVITY TO FOREIGN NATIONS AND POWERS AND MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS!!

    AND STILL YOU, AS A MAJORITY OF THE CHRISTIANS IN AMERICA — WILL NOT REPENT AND RETURN TO SOUND DOCTRINE!!

    YOU HATE AND DESPISE THE PREACHING OF GOD’S WORD!! AND DEMAND TEACHERS THAT WILL GLORIFY MAN AND FREE WILL AND HUMANIST NATIONALISM OF BABYLON!!

    And will you hear ME???

    No, becuz you are not yet CURSED ENOUGH to HUMBLE YOURSELVES under the MIGHTY HAND OF GOD — and you insist you are as gods knowing good and evil with power to rule yourselves and God’s Kingdom and insist that FREE WILL is the BASIS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN!! AND THE MEANS BY WHICH GOD MOVES!!

    And you HEAP ABUSE UPON THE TEACHERS OF GOD’S WORD WHO CALL YOU BACK TO GOD AND HIS WORD AND WORSHIP OF HIM AS SOVEREIGN (KING) AND SEPARATION FROM THE WORLD IN UNION WITH JESUS AND BELIEVERS ONLY AS A NATION!!

    YOU DESPISE THE TEACHING OF GOD’S WORD and demand FABLES THAT TICKLE YOUR OWN EARS AND EXALT YOUR OWN FLESH AND EGOS!!

    AND YOU DEMAND THE PREACHING OF FREE WILL AND THE EXALTATION OF THE ARM OF FLESH.

    You will FACE GREATER TRIAL AND FIRE — AND LOSS OF EVERYTHING — before you will repent.

  3. Yes, we are in trouble. We have forgotten the one who gave us this Earth and life itself. So many are turned to their own ways and not His!..
    The next election is vital. God does hear us and wants only the best for us who are called ‘His”. Thank you for this writing. Be blessed.. bloom more fully every day!..
