Yes, I said terminal illness, and that will not be received well by some, but it is what I see and hear in my heart of hearts. The terminality of which I speak does not mean that America cannot be healed and revived. Rather, it means that America cannot and will not survive if we continue the path we are on.
I have spoken for many years on some things that could cause America to exit the stage of World Superpower and become more of a follower nation than a leader. Again, I am bullish on America and patriotic to my core, so don’t assume that I am folding my tent and washing my hands of this Republic. I will fight for her as long as I draw breath. That is an absolute! Yet, I see the signs of terminal illness in our nation.
When a nation abandons God’s Word, His Righteousness, and Holiness you get what we are seeing in America today. The sacrifices to our modern Baal in abortion reveal a moral breakdown that produces death, not life. The political correctness, the woke mentality, the cancel culture, the insistence on ethnic wars, and the assault on the Bible, Christianity, the home, and marriage reflects a mental, moral, and spiritual condition that can only lead to decline, declension, and judgment.
The endorsement by this administration regarding biological males competing in women’s sports is not an example of inclusiveness but the expulsion of reason and sanity. It is an affront to the Bible and God Himself. It is reflective of a condition of heart and mind that dates back to the fall of Lucifer from Heaven and the repeated failures of man throughout history.
We are witnessing a purge in our military and the prime targets seems to be skin color and political ideology. No, it is not an assault on minorities but a demand that all white males acknowledge the fallacious and fictitious white privilege. The push in the business world, education, the military, and even in the church for those whose skin pigmentation identifies them as Caucasian to fall on their faces in repentance at the altar of Woke-ness and Political Correctness. It includes the idea of reparation for some sin of someone in the past by anyone resembling those who committed those sins. That speaks of an illness that can only lead to destruction thereby qualifying to be deemed terminal.
Who do I blame for the condition that exists? I do not lay the blame at the feet of the politicians, although they are blameworthy. The pursuit of their ideological agendas and the quest for power is inherent in the beast. It is who they are, so we should not be surprised when they violate the constitution and our wishes in the pursuit of their inclusion in the pinnacle of power.
I do not blame the activist, although they are worthy of their share of the blame. However, like the politicians, they are blinded by their rabid ideological positions and driven to destroy everything that does not align with their belief. It seems they truly believe they are right and everyone else is wrong and therefore have a mandate to vilify and destroy everything and everyone who opposes them. I do not justify their antics or activities, but insist they are not the reason for our condition.
I do not blame the anti-religious, the atheist, the agnostics, and those who do not follow, believe or accept the precepts of the Bible. They are assuredly part of the problem and share the blame, but they are not the reason for our decline. They have perpetuated it and enhanced it, but they are a symptom, not the root cause.
Who do I blame? I blame the followers of the Bible, the preachers, the prophets, and those who identify as Christians. Yes, that includes me, for I am a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, believe the Bible IS the word of God and inspired, and have preached the gospel for over 50 years. How, is it our fault that we are in the condition we are in? How can I blame the followers of the Judeo-Christian faith for our terminal condition?
I say it because we slumbered and took the easy road when we should have been watchmen on the walls and sounding the alarm. We allowed the educational system to be hijacked by ideological activists. Those who were not advocates of moral rightness, the constitution, our American system of Republican Representative Government, and the Free Market. We allowed politicians to strip us of our liberties, infringe upon our inalienable rights, and impose restrictions on matters of morality and religion beyond their legal, moral, and constitutional boundaries. We sat in silence, fat, happy, unaffected, and lazy and they stole our nation.
We adopted the mistaken idea that our Founders and the Framers of the American Constitution wanted everything of God, Religion, and the Church removed from Government. The phrase, ‘separation of church and state’ became the guide, and many preachers and churches were either silenced either by belief or intimidation and the foxes were allowed to guard and ravage the hen house – America!
We became complacent and some were more concerned with the identity of the ‘Man of Sin’ (Antichrist) than the ‘Sin of Man’, (Condition of Hearts). Some adopted the view that faith was personal, and our lives were compartmentalized. We have our religious lives, our home lives, our business lives, and our political lives. I’ve said many times, “We are not cats, we do not have nine lives – WE HAVE A LIFE!” All the facets of our lives reflect who we are.
America is in a dire state today and if we continue in the direction we are headed we will soon see an economic collapse that will remove America from the world stage as a superpower. With over $28 Trillion in debt not to mention the unsecured debt in the $100s of Trillions, our condition is terminal. This administration has suggested stimulus checks for people on death row without family. That is beyond nonsensical, it is diabolical. Money does not grow on trees and we are insanely spending money we do not have to fix a problem that spending has caused.
The draconian and tyrannical actions of some political figures during the pandemic have revealed the fragile nature of our freedoms. The alarming silence and willing compliance of the public reveal the fruit of the labors of decades in brainwashing and reeducating the masses. That suggests the existence of a disease or condition that is terminal. I hesitate to go to great length but feel I must mention a few things that could easily render America an afterthought on the world stage.
If we were to have a massive war and with the current purge and revamping of our military, we might not survive an assault. An EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) would render America or any nation defenseless in a great measure. The aforementioned economic collapse would render us incapable of contending or competing on the world stage and propel us to the back burner on the stove of world economics and power.
The Scottish historian and professor Alexander Tytler wrote in 1787: “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse [generous gifts] from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: Bondage to Spiritual Faith > Spiritual Faith to Great Courage> Courage to Liberty > Liberty to Abundance > Abundance to Complacency > Complacency to Apathy > Apathy to Dependence > and Dependence back into Bondage.”
Another, I would be remiss if I did not include some predictions that came in various forms in letters and writings to Jefferson and others: “Your Republic will be as fearfully plundered and laid waste by barbarians not from without but from within your own institutions.”
A moral collapse demands divine judgment and judgment is not always direct as with Sodom and Gomorrah it can be indirect. That would be the removal of God’s protective hand and allowing the hordes to impose their will on society and render the nation powerless and ineffective. I believe we are headed in that direction if we are not already there.
I also believe that America can be revived and although we may not be a major player in the end times as a superpower we can be a superpower spiritually and impact the world for the Kingdom of God and thereby see multitudes preserved and rescued from earthly and eternal destruction.
The views I have expressed are mine and I believe they are birthed from what I am hearing in my spirit. I have much more to say but have gone too long now. I pray that you will join me and multitudes like me in intercessory prayer. Believers and lovers of Freedom let’s accept our responsibility for the condition, repent, and become involved in restoration not just in politics and name-calling.
God bless you and God bless America!
