11-11-2014 America’s Rebellion
It gets lonely telling people about America’s rebellion because I often get blank stares and I am seldom asked about what I am talking about. I just went on the web to find other sites mentioning America’s rebellion and found about a half dozen sites. I will be checking these sites and see if I can correspond with those who may not know American’s rebellion is a proven fact.
America needs to know that our rebellion can be shown in crime and other data. More Americans may then decide our rebellion is not just some ones opinion and that may help America get to the cure for rebellion, which is repentance and returning to the Lord (see Psalm 107:17 and 11-13). Until that happens, America and future generations will continue to suffer in our slide into destruction because Christ’s Church is mostly inactive on this effort. The Church is mostly clinging to political correctness and does not want to offend anyone for their political views, no matter how wrong they may be for the rest of Americans and the unborn and the Church itself.
For years I thought we were a fallen nation and I wondered what the Lord’s position was on this. I knew that the Lord fulfills his word: Jeremiah 1:12 Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it. Genesis 15:16 gives an awesome example of this when the Lord is telling Moses that you can have the land of all these fallen nations; but, not the Amorites land; because: the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet complete, but then the Lord goes on to say it would be complete in the fourth generation of the nation of Israel and Israel could then have the Amorite land. Psalm 2 is also an awesome example of what happens to nations who rebel; the Lord laughs at them (also see Psalm 9). Is the Lord laughing at America and now working against us?
As I pondered the Lord watching over His Word it came to me that there should be data showing whether or not America had rebelled. I praised the Lord for days as I found the data. I found more and more data proving the Word and showing something terrible had happened to America, just as the Bible promises for rebellion. Ezekiel 5:5-8 describes a rebellion and how the Lord will turn against the rebellious nation:
5 “Thus says the Lord God, ‘This is Jerusalem; I have set her at the center of the nations, with lands around her. 6 But she has rebelled against My ordinances more wickedly than the nations and against My statutes more than the lands which surround her; for they have rejected My ordinances and have not walked in My statutes.’ 7 Therefore, thus says the Lord God, ‘Because you have more turmoil than the nations which surround you and have not walked in My statutes, nor observed My ordinances, nor observed the ordinances of the nations which surround you,’ 8 therefore, thus says the Lord God, ‘Behold, I, even I, am against you, and I will execute judgments among you in the sight of the nations.
I had already wondered what the consequences of America turning against the Lord were when America thumbed our nose at the Lord and took prayer and then the Bible out of public school in 1962 and 1963 and now I knew and saw how the Lord was proving His Word. America’s founders had put into law the requirement to teach Christianity in public schools and when America rebelled against this, it was rebellion against the Lord. Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 10:1-6 and 11 that everything that happened to Israel was to be an example to us in the later days and here was the proof! I love how this proves Proverbs 21:30 There is no wisdom and no understanding and no counsel against the Lord.
What follows is only some of the proof and adding it to this post, makes this post too long, let alone share other data. I found statistics on things like teenage pregnancy, which was also trending down, and divorce rates, stat scores, and venereal decease all trending in the wrong direction. This shows that all Americans suffered severely because of America’s rebellion. Note how things took a turn for the worse in 1962 when America removed prayer and in 1963, the Bible from public schools!

Please note how everything starts trending upward in 1963 after being relatively stable or trending downward before America’s rebellion. Most crimes almost doubled or did double in the 8 years before the 60’s decade ended. America also experienced the free sex and the drug culture movements in those 8 years!
|U.S. Department of Justice
Federal Bureau of Investigation
Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics
Estimated crime in United States-Total
|Year||Population||Crime rate per 100,000 population|
|Violent Crime rate||Murder and nonnegligent manslaughter rate||Forcible rape rate||Robbery rate||Aggravated assault rate|
I cut this chart off after 1992 because crimes rates started trending down as a result of mandatory minimum sentences being enacted in 1986 and that took a lot of criminals off the streets.
When something like this increase in crime takes place, we should look for a cause. As a Christian, I see it as a rebellion against the Lord’s leadership in governance. Since America’s founding, Christianity played a huge part in America’s governance. America’s governance rebelled in 1962 when the Supreme Court removed prayer from public schools. America had required the teaching of Christianity in public schools. When our state of Ohio applied for state hood, they had to prove they were adhering to the Northwest Ordinance requirement that they teach Christianity in public schools. Ohio’s constitution verifies Ohio was meeting this requirement. As a result of adherence to the Lord’s guidance for nations, America became the most powerful nation on earth; but, we are now trending downward in power and leadership in the world.
In 1963, America further rebelled by removing the Bible from public schools.
- The violent crime rate per 100,000 people increased from 162.3 in 1962 to 757.7 in 1992; a whopping 366.8 %.
- The murder rate increased from 5.1 per 100,000 people to 9.3 in 1992, an 82.4% increase.
- Forcible rape increased from 9.6 per 100,000 people to 42.8 in 1992, a tragic circumstance for our women and a 345.8% increase in rape.
- The robbery rate increased from 60.1 per 100,000 to 263.7, a 337.8% increase.
- The aggravated assault rate increased from 86.1 per 100,000 to 441.9, a 413.2% increase.
Why not do your own search. For instance if you search for 1960 -1990 FBI crime charts beginning in 1960, a lot of images of charts will show up. Scan through them and you will see most have a big increase beginning in 1960.
