Let’s Find Our Way Back Home!

AMERICA has been exceptional, but it was because we were a GOD fearing nation, that GOD blessed us as a nation…it wasn’t because Americans were exceptional all by themselves….they reaped what they sowed. Today, as a nation we are also reaping what has been sown on a national scale, and the consequences of that harvest are indeed ones that carry with them a lack of proverbial Divine Providence “blessings”. Now, our national government has refuted GOD in every aspect, our borders have been breached in more than one way…to include the tragedy brought by 9/11 and the horrendous loss of life. America’s GOD is Israel’s GOD….and what happened when Israel refuted GOD? Israel was blessed by being GOD’s chosen people, but TO THEM WHO ARE GIVEN MUCH, MUCH IS REQUIRED! Israel, did not heed the warnings either, when the terrorists came (the Assyrians, please research your authentic history on this…), and GOD was pushed out of the nation on the national level. GOD did not intervene, because HE was not asked to intervene. GOD will not intervene for us here now, either, because the warnings have gone unheeded, and WE have as a nation not answered GOD’s call. You see, what many fail to understand is that GOD is LOVE. He is ALL merciful, and He wants to forgive us on the national level. He wants to, but our elected public servants refuse to make this happen. We as the People, are the leaders of this nation. It is time to extend our hands back to the LORD, so that we rectify this falling away that has happened here. His hand is always still extended. He wants to bless us, yet we are not currently, nationally blessable. We, as a nation, have to heed the alarms. We HAVE NOT, and if history plays out the way it did for Israel, our national failure to turn back to the ONE WHO BLESSED US and MADE US A SUCCESSFUL NATION, will be the reason why. MAY GOD be with those who are with HIM, and MAY THOSE WHO ARE WITH HIM, be willing to stir the proverbial pot with a dose of truth, at each and every opportunity.
Our Founders told us that national sins are punished on a national level, and that judgment for individuals was reserved to the end. This quote carries much pertinence in light today’s struggles that we see lying ahead of us.
“They bring the judgment of heaven on a Country. As nations can not be rewarded or punished in the next world they must be in this. By an inevitable chain of causes & effects Providence punishes national sins, by national calamities.” ~ George Mason

Everything in this verse, was Israel’s defiance to GOD….
10 “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”
(Brief commentary: the idea with this is that Israel was attacked, their walls were breached, it was swift, but instead of turning back to GOD for HIS favor and assistance, they vowed to rebuild what was destroyed with stronger materials, and they vowed to replant with stronger plants…..some don’t know this, but this too happened here, with us and our public servant declarations….and with the new stronger materials…..and with the stronger trees….and the symbolism was kept throughout. Each of the materials right down to trees and stones were the same. I am sure of all of this, as I am reading a book right now that is documented on this subject matter. Should you or anyone be interested in knowing the name of the book, it is “The Harbinger” by: Jonathan Cahn.)
Everything in this verse above, also happened here….to include leaders saying and invoking the same thumb in the eye thoughts. WHAT we NEED is GOD. WHAT we have, IMO, is imminent danger.
The reason I believe so, is put into context below:
Isaiah 9:11-21 (vs. 13 is quite telling, as are several others, please continue reading below.)
11 Therefore the Lord shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together;
12 The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
13 For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the Lord of hosts.
14 Therefore the Lord will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.
15 The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.
16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
17 Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
18 For wickedness burneth as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke.
19 Through the wrath of the Lord of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.
20 And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm:
21 Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.”
May GOD be with us. May we be able to move the status quo, for if we fail, we will lament the day we do. I mourn for my GOD, as I know that this country was better off when He was a part of it all…..and for how sad all of this must make HIM. I mourn for my fellow countrymen as they are blinded by false teachings, apathy, and indifference. I pray for my nation and my compatriots to have the strength to tell the whole truth, all the time. May GOD bless our efforts.
