Part 4: The Awesome Promises of Deuteronomy
Let us look at some of the awesome promises of Deuteronomy that according to Paul in 1 Corinthians 10:6 and 11 are meant for all nations and see how America’s rebellion against the Great Governor has caused America harm.
1. Marvel at how The Great Governor sustained Israel during forty years in the desert:
Deuteronomy 2:7b These forty years the LORD your God has been with you; you have not lacked a thing. What an awesome promise for millions of people being sustained in a harsh desert. It should make people aware The Great Governor can meet any need His people have.
Deuteronomy 8:4 Your clothing did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years. All kinds of things are tested to see if they can survive the desert environment and yet The Great Governor had no problem sustaining millions of people in a harsh desert!
America is in the midst of what seem to be insurmountable problems since we rebelled. The Great Governor longs for His once Top Nation* to return to Him as in Deuteronomy 5:29 Oh that they had such a heart in them, that they would fear Me and keep all My commandments always, that it may be well with them and with their sons forever!
See my e book America, Christ’s Top Nation Has Fallen. The details are at http://www.americaisafallennation.com
2. The Great Governor could straighten out America’s health care mess:
Deuteronomy 7:15 The LORD will remove from you all sickness; and He will not put on you any of the harmful diseases of Egypt which you have known, but He will lay them on all who hate you.
3. The Great Governor who set his Christian nation free can protect us again if we return to Him:
Deuteronomy 12:10b He gives you rest from all your enemies around you so that you live in security. America has no idea who all our enemies are or where they may come from next but The Great Governor knows every one of them. Several places in the Bible confirm The Great Governors protection of His people. Here is just one from Deuteronomy 20:4 for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.
4. Returning to The Great Governor is how American’s can become happy and prosperous once again:
Deuteronomy 12:28 Be careful to listen to all these words which I command you, so that it may be well with you and your sons after you forever, for you will be doing what is good and right in the sight of the LORD your God. America became one the Lord’s Top Nations when founded by Christians on Biblical principal and they understood America would go well as long as we remained Christian.
5. America has been unable to solve our poor people problem even after going in to a debt which we may not survive to the tune of several trillion dollars:
Deu 15:4-5: However, there will be no poor among you, since the LORD will surely bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance to possess, 5 if only you listen obediently to the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all this commandment which I am commanding you today. Maybe America should try The Great Governors way! Poor people, think of this, you only get the small percentage your friends in big government do not take from you. The government tells us citizens we should not be greedy and willingly pay high taxes but once they get the money they greedily keep way more than you get. There is a better way and it is The Great Governors way.
6. America has borrowed huge sums of money, since our rebellion, from many nations and some are our enemies that will rule over us:
The Great Governor promises this in Deuteronomy 15:6 For the LORD your God will bless you as He has promised you, and you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow; and you will rule over many nations, but they will not rule over you. Americas excess borrowing has become a trap for us and the only way out is to return to The Great Governor and follow Him. Chapter 30 explains how to return, promises blessings for doing so and then sets before us this choice in Deuteronomy 30:15 See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity.
Look at this America. In My book America, Christ’s Top Nation Has Fallen I talk about how America rebelled against the Lord in 1962 and 63:
There is a startling chart showing how America’s deficit financing rose after America rebelled at
Astounding isn’t it? Look how deficit financing rose when America rebelled! The huge cost of World War II hardly shows up compared to deficit financing after America rebelled and Satan started gaining control of America. America, please pay close attention to the end of verse 12 below.
America, are you aware of our need to return to The great Governor and follow Him? Are you aware how in the first 14 verses of Deuteronomy 28 the Lord basically promises to do everything for the nations who follow and obey Him:
“Now it shall be, if you diligently obey the LORD your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. 2 All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you obey the LORD your God:
3 “Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.
4 “Blessed shall be the offspring of your body and the produce of your ground and the offspring of your beasts, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock.
5 “Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.
6 “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.
7 “The LORD shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way and will flee before you seven ways. 8 The LORD will command the blessing upon you in your barns and in all that you put your hand to, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God gives you. 9 The LORD will establish you as a holy people to Himself, as He swore to you, if you keep the commandments of the LORD your God and walk in His ways. 10 So all the peoples of the earth will see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they will be afraid of you. 11 The LORD will make you abound in prosperity, in the offspring of your body and in the offspring of your beast and in the produce of your ground, in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers to give you. 12 The LORD will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 The LORD will make you the head and not the tail, and you only will be above, and you will not be underneath, if you listen to the commandments of the LORD your God, which I charge you today, to observe them carefully, 14 and do not turn aside from any of the words which I command you today, to the right or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.
Many will argue these promises were not meant for America. If that is true, how is it they came true for America? These promises were meant for and came true for America because we were founded by Christians for Christians and as long as we remained a Christian nation, these promises worked for America just as Paul told us they were meant as examples to us in the later days in 1 Corinthians 10:6 and 11!
It is no accident that 54 verses of curses on nations that do not follow the Lords way in the first 14 verses. America is suffering from some of these curses such as “The LORD will send upon you curses, confusion, and rebuke, in all you undertake to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly, on account of the evil of your deeds, because you have forsaken Me. America needs to repent soon as these curses will surely come and I can’t see how America will do that without Christ’s Church calling for repentance for choosing the politics that got America to this fallen position.
