The United States Is On The Road To Destruction

25 Jul

When ancient Israel turned away from God and committed atrocious sins including child sacrifices, He eventually punished them by allowing Assyria and later Babylon to conquer them completely – wiping the country off the face of the earth.

God doesn’t change. He’s the same today as He was back then.

“I the LORD do not change.” – Malachi 3:6

And He still works the same way today as He did thousands of years ago.

It’s not a stretch to say the United States is even worse than ancient Israel. We’ve allowed and often encouraged behaviors that are detestable to God including abortionpornography, excessive debt, ignoring those who are weaker, loving money, divorce, vanity, homosexuality, and many others. We call “good” what God says is “sin” and even ridicule it as being “old-fashioned”.

Make no mistake. It’s no coincidence that as the United States accumulates more and more sin we accumulate more and more enemies.

Al Qaeda. IranISISRussiaVenezuela. Muslims. North Korea. The number of our enemies continues to grow.

At one time enemies on a different continent posed no real threat to our safety. But that is no longer the case. Not only are our enemies infiltrating our society, but they’re close to being able to harm us from afar.

Someday – probably within a few decades – God will allow the United States to be conquered and wiped off the map just like He did Israel. What seemed impossible just a generation ago is now very possible.

Not only is it possible, it is a virtual certainty if we don’t turn away from sin and turn back to God.

The Upcoming Supreme Court Decision On Same-Sex Marriage

26 Jun

Any day now the Supreme Court of the United States will announce its decision regarding same-sex marriage. It is widely anticipated that the court will strike down state laws that ban this practice thereby paving the way for gay couples to marry at-will in all 50 states.

When this announcement is undoubtedly made the gay community, and their straight supporters, will rejoice. There will be much rainbow flag waving and celebrating. For them it will be a day of jubilation as they delight in what they perceive to be a progressive victory. The reality is, however, that this will be anything but a victory for them or for the country.

Same-sex marriage is undeniably a rebuke of God’s command that marriage be between one male and one female. To promote any other form of marriage is to arrogantly defy God and declare that we know better than He does. Such thinking is nothing but arrogance.

By defying God those who advocate, promote, and participate in same-sex marriage are doing one thing they don’t realize: they are distancing themselves from God. This is never a good thing to do.

The United States has been defying and distancing itself from God for several decades on the basis of many issues including abortion, pornography, and financial debt to name just three. Our country habitually rejects God’s commands in favor of our own alleged wisdom. But the decline in our culture, security, reputation, and finances over that time reveals the truth. Life does not get better without God.

The truth is the Supreme Court decision will encourage and promote the increase of sin in our country with the end result being a nation that is further away from God than it has ever been.

Same-sex marriage advocates think this ruling will bring liberation and freedom. But condoning sin does no such thing. It results in the downfall of society because it moves us away from the God who wants to bless us but who understandably will not if we reject Him.

A few thousand years ago the nation of Israel took a similar path. They turned against the God who loved them, provided them with a land overflowing with resources, and protected them from their enemies. Instead they chose to reject His design for life and replace it with their own. They distanced themselves from God and their nation subsequently collapsed and was eventually conquered by their enemies.

Make no mistake… the same future awaits the United States if we don’t turn from our many sins and return to the God who benevolently provided for us just as He provided for Israel.

On an individual level, however, the result is even more devastating. Those who refuse to acknowledge their sin and instead embrace and celebrate it will face an eternity of exactly what they were seeking on this earth – life without God. They believe life without God, either on earth or in eternity, is better than life with Him. But such thinking is a catastrophic delusion.

Eternity without God is hell. Once these people die and realize the irreversible tragedy of their mistake there will be no rejoicing or celebrating. There will only never-ending regret and anguish for having chosen temporary selfish indulgence over permanent God-given fulfillment. Distancing oneself from God is as misguided as it gets.

The Supreme Court of the United States is unwittingly about to lead many unsuspecting people into such a destiny.
