The Election 2012-My thoughts

 

I write to show the path America is going down and why it’s going down this chosen path. Some may say, things always change and that’s true. Because the past standards of morality and actions change does not make them right or wrong. The question is, is it right in God’s view ? That can be determined only from the Word of God. We each will be responsible and accountable for our decisions. Our current president said four years ago that his goal was to totally transform America. I’m not  going to criticize or blame him, though I disagree with his direction. I only want to state why I believe America is headed toward the destruction and chaos we see in other countries.

 

 Be a little patient with me. I am not looking back and saying that all was good forty or fifty years ago, it wasn’t many things needed to change and have. In talking about change I will to show just a few observations that may be why as a nation are going where we are.

 

I remember: TV without profanity, nudity and sex outside of marriage. Today you almost have to keep your hand on the remote. If not for the program content it’s the advertisements. Magazines with a lot of  flesh revealed were under the counter out of site for all  and had to be asked for. They were not displayed where all had to see.  When short shorts, tight pants and low necklines were an indication of the low moral values of those wearing them. When parents were   shown respect and honor by their children. When in general the older and experienced were considered to have some wisdom and to be of some value.  When the older generation were not  pushing for special treatment. When young people in general strived to be independent and adults. Accepting responsibility and earning their own way was the norm. They didn’t whine about what they didn’t have, they just worked for it until they got it and thankfully some still do. When the Bible was honored and respected even if not read it was considered God’s word. It was accepted by those who studied it to mean simply what it plainly said.  Drinking of alcohol was not accepted by Bible believers because of the plain teaching of the Scriptures. Any sex outside of marriage was wrong as the Bible taught. Today that is wrongly considered the norm in relationships.

 

America is weakening it’s stand with the nation of Israel which it has maintained in the past. America was blessed by God because of our stand for and with Israel. To Abraham   God had given this promise of blessing to those who blessed Israel and  a curse to those who cursed Israel. History reveals this truth in that every nation that has been against Israel has fallen. America has been blessed because our nation was founded on Christian principles found in the Word of God.

 

The government is under pressure now  to remove the only true God, the God of the Bible out of the public arena. Don’t post the ten commandments and don’t reference Jesus Christ. Because non Christians might be offended. But the government pushes acceptance of other religions and makes provisions for Muslims.

 

I believe our nation is going down a path of destruction, trying to put most people on the same financial level. Those who won’t work and those who can’t get a decent paying job because of their choices to limit their education and efforts with those who work to get ahead. Minimum wage was the starting point. It was never meant to support a family for those who didn’t work and study to get ahead. As the president (Obama) said we should share, redistribute what you earned so those who make bad choices will have the same income as those who make good choices. The recent election has provided Obama the additional time he needs to accomplish his early stated goal in 2008 to transform our nation completely. The prevailing attitude of many Christians in our country is that God would never allow Christians to go through hard times here. They don’t stop and consider what Christians in some other countries, especially Muslim countries suffer. We need to realize and accept that is can happen here in America. America as a nation has turned it’s back on God. Even though our Nation was founded on Christian principles, the laws are taken from God’s laws.  Always remember from reading the biblical account of Israel when they turned from God and God allowed the nation to be defeated that the godly suffered along with the ungodly. America has sinned in the past with slavery, segregation and racism but has made efforts to correct its past concerning these sins. I believe its on its final step to destruction as a nation with freedoms we currently enjoy. 

 

It’s only a manner of time before the entire nation legalizes same sex marriage. I believe America will fall before the tribulation because there is no reference of another nation coming to the aid of Israel at the end, in the Bible. This is  my opinion. We see the events in the middle-east associated with Israel, it indicates that the return of Christ is near. The signs of the end in Matthew chapter twenty-four and the book of Daniel relating to the end are falling into place. But that’s another study.  I pray for the Rapture of believers before we and our children etc must endure the suffering seen in other countries. But I also pray that all my love ones friends and relatives will be ready at the time. I fear many are not ready.

 

In the beginning I noted some of the changes in accepted morality, I close with the final road to judgment given in Romans 1:19-32

 

God has showed Himself to all mankind. Verses 19-20

 

Man has rejected God by not giving Him the glory due. Verse 21

 

God gave them over to do their own thing, follow their own sinful, lustful hearts. Verse 24

 

They changed the truth of God, His Word. Verse 25 God gave them up to their vile lust of homosexual and lesbian lust.

 

God gave them over to a reprobate mind. Verse 28.

 

 Romans 1:19-32 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

 

I close with the simple Gospel:

 

As it is written, There is none righteous ,no not one. Romans 3:10. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead thou shalt be saved.    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:9 & 13.

 

As the hymn writer put it  “There’s room at the cross for you, tho millions have come, There’s still room for one- yes, there’s room at the cross for you.”

 

 

 

We also realize that our hope and future is in the hands Jesus Christ, that’s our comfort. I pray that the fall of America will be delayed until after the rapture.
