For those who didn’t know this, I am a German-born, naturalized American citizen. I’ve loved America since I first moved here in the Sixties, at the tender age of 10; and I even served 22 years in the US Army as a journalist/public affairs specialist, because I wanted to serve this great country.
But, as much as a I hate to say this, I’m not in love with America as I used to be – for myriad reasons – and I find myself constantly asking the question: WHY? Why should He bless America?
Why should He bless a country that keeps getting further and further away from Him?
Why should he bless a country that allowed an atheist to bully the government into making prayer illegal in schools and government buildings – a nation that was FOUNDED “under God”?
Why should He bless a country that embraced the ideals of “sex, drugs and rock and roll” and “if you’re not with the one you love, love the one you’re with” … a movement that started right after the “birth control pill” hit the market and permitted promiscuity and relieved women of the fear of unwanted pregnancies?
Why should He bless a country where most believe (and keep fighting for) a “woman’s right” to murder her unborn baby?
Why should God BLESS a nation whose government is forcing the idea that it’s normal for same-gender people to marry … a country that declared a special MONTH to CELEBRATE something God calls an abomination?”
Why should God BLESS a nation that keeps catering to every “fringe element” including those pushing the sick notion of “gender fluidity”; while allowing the "gender confused” to dictate that all public restrooms should be made “gender neutral”?
Why should He bless a country that has turned racism, violence, decadence and hatred into an art form?
I could go on and on, but here’s my bottom line:
I want to know WHY God should bother BLESS ING a country over-flowing with hypocritical Scripture twisters who are ready, willing and able to “forgive” whoremongering adulterers, liars, bullies and cheaters; while at the same time, chastising and harassing those who wish to follow His Divine Instructions in Righteousness? (I’m referring to Torah – the first five Books of Moses that contain ALL of YAHWEH’s original Divine Instructions, which He instructed ALL to follow.)
WHY should He bless a country that refuses to even keep the commanded Seventh Day Sabbath holy – which is a SIGN between YAHWEH and His people! (Genesis 2:1; Exodus 31:16-17; Ezekiel 20:11-12)? A country that, instead of demanding morality and calling for repentance, condones and endlessly seeks forgive DELIBERATE sin? A country that INSISTS everything God ever considered BAD is now GOOD; and everything “good” is now “bad”?
People, I fear for America. Every great nation has fallen BECAUSE of their decadence – and I fear we are quickly approaching our demise as well. YAHWEH is surely NOT happy with us anymore.
So, WHY should He bless America?
Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who change darkness into light and light into darkness, who change bitter into sweet and sweet into bitter! 21 Woe to those seeing themselves as wise, esteeming themselves as clever.
22 Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine, men whose power goes to mixing strong drinks, 23 who acquit the guilty for bribes but deny justice to the righteous! 24 Therefore, as fire licks up the stubble, and the chaff is consumed in the flame; so their root will rot, and their flowers scatter like dust; because they have rejected the Torah of Adonai-Tzva’ot, they have despised the word of the Holy One of Isra’el. (CJB).
1 John 2: 15. Love not the world nor anything in it; for whoever loves the world has not the love of the Father in him. 16. For all that is in the world is the lust of the body and the lust of the eyes and the pride of the world, which are not from the Father but from the world[*] itself. 17. And the world is passing away, (both) it and the lust thereof; but he that does the pleasure of Elohim abides for ever. (AENT).
*NOTE: “The world” refers to pagan, Torahless, humanistic, evolutionary, relativistic, materialistic, sensual, unrighteous lifestyles that haSatan used to seduce mankind away from YHWH. This certainly does not refer to the earth which YHWH made according to His good pleasure.
Proverbs 28:9 If a person will not listen to Torah, even his prayer is an abomination. (CJB).
