Where is America headed?

The Gutenberg Bible displayed by the United St...

Should Christians in America prepare for increased discrimination?  Is the justice and morality of the Bible being slowly replaced with the ways of sinful man?  Is “One nation under God” being replaced with “One nation without God”?

    I have visited Washington, D.C. and there was one name omitted from everything, from the walls of the capitol to the Washington monument, from the Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln memorial to the hall of the Library of Congress….and His name was Jesus Christ. There were a few Scripture verses in the Library of Congress amongst the quotes of men like Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato, but none from the greatest teacher that ever lived, God in the flesh, Jesus Christ.

    This nation was not founded upon the God of our Bibles, but the god of enlightenment, which was the spirit of that age. When many of our former Presidents owned slaves and ordered them to be whipped or beaten , and killed if they escaped, this was not the way of Jesus…..when former politicians lied to the Indian population in the form of treaties and then relocated them to barren lands to apease the consience of a wicked system…..this is not the way of Jesus…….when we, the people build idols and shrines out of stone, mortar and brick to pay homage (worship) to men who appeared courageous in the founding of this country, but in truth, lacked true Biblical character, then perhaps we are indeed a nation under a god, but not the true God of our Holy Scriptures.

    For us to worship a nation is idolitry. Our flag pledge was written by a socialist Baptist minister and the children who first recited it, put one hand over their heart and raised the other like the people back in Germany in worship to Adolph Hitler. Are we to "pledge allegiance to a person, flag, or a country?" No. Our allegiance is to Christ alone. We have been brainwashed into believing America is a Christian nation; the truth of the matter is, there is no such thing as a "Christian" nation. There are Christians living in nations under every form of government, but there exists no Christian nation that claims the true God of the Bible as their own. We have been taught a lie.

    We need to get back to worshipping Jesus, not man.

    Today the cross was slighted. It grieves me it was a pastor that did that.

    The Cross was not a prelude to the resurrection it was the means by which Christ Himself became the substitutionary atonement for our sins for our sins would be laid upon Him. He would satisfy the wrath of God for our sins for He would bear His wrath for us, for God would see His Son as if He were us, children of wrath, slaves of unrighteousness. Everything Christ would endure would be used to purge Himself of our sins, which, He willingly bore on our behalf. Every tool used to open up His flesh, so the precious life giving blood could pour forth. The bruising of His flesh, the plucking of the beard, the stripes both on his front and back to tear the flesh, the crown of thorns pressed into a bare skull. Finally, the walk, bloody footprints on the pavement bearing our reproach outside the city to the place all criminals were put on display, Golgotha place of the skull the place of death. They would strip him naked and nail Him to a wooden cross, wicked men driving the spikes into the precious One who would be our savior. He would be hoisted up, lifted up from the earth and bring to mind the words He had spoken to Nicodemus who had approached Him in secrete. His flesh would not want to let go of life. He would convulse and fight for breath every muscle in His body a quivering raw nerve. Every bone out of joint, every bone seen. He would gasp for breath and with ever fading strength, plead with the Father on behalf of wicked, Forgive them Father they know not what they do. His blood draining, His heart melting, water filling the void. I thirsted and they gave me gall to drink. As long as He lived He would bear our reproach. My strength is fading darkness is closing in: my God my God why hast thou forsaken me. He Cried: It is finished. He gave up the ghost and His Spirit left Him and He died. Even in this I do no justice to what he endured for us. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins. We who were far estranged from God have been brought near by His blood. Christ took that handwriting of ordinances that was against us and nailed to His cross.

    Isaiah 53:8-12 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities… because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many,

    Psalm 22:1-18 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted , and thou didst deliver them. They cried unto thee, and were delivered : they trusted in thee, and were not confounded. But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. All they that see me laugh me to scorn : they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him. But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts. I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly. Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help. Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion. I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint : my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. 17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

    Isaiah 52:14-15 As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

    Isaiah 52:10 The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.

    Isaiah 49:16 Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.

    But like was said that was not the end of the story. Death could not hold Him. He had authority to lay down His life so also He would have power to pick it up again. He said this is the sign you will have that the things I have spoken are from God, you will have the sign of Jonah for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the bowels of the earth and then I will rise again. This all happened! He is risen! Christ was vindicated and He lives forever more.

    Philippians 2:5-11 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow , of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    Oh may the LORD Almighty reign in your life and may you have His mind in you.

    Only God knows where this county is heading. If we keep turning our backs against God I'm sure God will have enough of us and turn his back on us because were such a wicked nation and have rejected God a lot.

  4. The American nation is headed for insolvency, fracture, and the wrath of God. The blood of millions of innocents cries out from the ground against her, and the untold stories of millions of sexual perversion and child abuse echo the call. We are a nation of hypocrites, of witches and warlocks, of ghouls and goblins, who hide our hatred for God and His word under our religious platitudes. When the iniquity of the Americans has become fully ripe, The Lord of heaven will offer payment to us in full, since we have heard the message and rejected the payment He made on the cross.
