8-26-2014 A Year Has Passed
This Post marks the end of the first year of posts on this website http://www.americaisafallennation.com. I started this website to support my E Book: America, Christ’s Top Nation Has Fallen. This post also marks the end of the first year of selling this otherwise un-promoted book and the book is not selling. It is difficult to sell an un-promoted Bible study confronting a nation with the hard truth of what has happened to them even as the nation struggles to comprehend how America arrived at the point we are at!
Doing the post was a lot more difficult at first and the oppression was hard to deal with. This past week I quietly waited to see if the Lord still wanted me to keep at it for Him. The Lord put many things to write about in my mind so I knew I had to keep going. I have learned this past year to not start fretting about what to write about next because when the time comes to write, the Lord starts giving me ideas, a lot of times at three or four in the morning. About the same time the oppression starts and at times it can be severe; but, I am learning how to get the Lord’s help in suppressing it.
In the mean time, the hits on the website have reached up to 75 an hour. I was shocked when the website host informed me of that. America is a hurting nation. I haven’t tracked when the hits on the website occur but I know by watching comments on the news of the day how badly America is worried by the incredible events unfolding against America. As badly as America is hurting, America is not ready to face the truth.
So I will keep at this posting but I would dearly love to hear from each of you. Please let me know what you like and don’t like at: My E mail address is RMadison@Windstream.com
Now for this week’s post:
Sunday while our class was studying the punishments of Revelation 6, I asked if I could read Psalm 2 as it is such a great summation of the Old Testament and it fit so well with this part of Revelation in that it tells us it is futile to not follow the Lord and it leads to punishment when he is not followed. This week I would like you to look at some of the awesome promises the Lord made through Moses to the nation of Israel and compare them to the last of the Psalms. Deuteronomy 28:1-14 promises absolute miraculous things for the nation that will follow the Lord because the Lord will control everything for that nation and the latter Psalms praise the Lord for His control of everything. Keep in mind that in 1 Corinthians 10:1-6 and 11, Paul tells us what happened to Israel was meant to teach all people.
“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.
Following these 14 awesome verses on how the Lord can bless a nation are 56 verses of curses that will happen if you do not follow the Lord. Some of these curses are almost too horrible to mention but know that everyone of them came true for Israel’s rebellion.
When Christians founded America on Biblical concepts, the Lords hand was on America and we became one of the Lords highly blessed Top Nations as promised in this scripture. Now that we have turned from the Lord, we have become a hurting nation.
The above verses show how for the Lord to bless nations to this extent requires a harmony with nature. Let us look at some of the statements in the last Psalms.
Psalm 146:3-6, 11, 14,
He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.
4 He counts the number of the stars;
He gives names to all of them.
5 Great is our Lord and abundant in strength;
His understanding is infinite.
6 The LORD supports the afflicted;
He brings down the wicked to the ground.
The LORD favors those who fear Him,
Those who wait for His lovingkindness.
He makes peace in your borders;
He satisfies you with the finest of the wheat.
Let the godly ones exult in glory;
Let them sing for joy on their beds.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,
7 To execute vengeance on the nations
And punishment on the peoples,
8 To bind their kings with chains
And their nobles with fetters of iron,
9 To execute on them the judgment written;
This is an honor for all His godly ones.
Praise the LORD!
There is much praise in the last Psalms for what the Lord has done and can do. Here is a sample:
Praise the LORD from the earth,
Sea monsters and all deeps;
8 Fire and hail, snow and clouds;
Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;
9 Mountains and all hills;
Fruit trees and all cedars;
10 Beasts and all cattle;
Creeping things and winged fowl;
11 Kings of the earth and all peoples;
Princes and all judges of the earth;
12 Both young men and virgins;
Old men and children.
13 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
For His name alone is exalted;
His glory is above earth and heaven.
14 And He has lifted up a horn for His people,
Praise for all His godly ones;
Even for the sons of Israel, a people near to Him.
Praise the LORD!
The first part of Psalm 148 has the universe praising the Lord. George Washington proclaimed it is the duty of all nations to thank the Lord.
