9-23-14 Biblical Wisdom Part Three
It was stated in part one that I needed to clean up my computer area of Post-its notes on scripture that was not used in previous posts so we can start the year fresh. I’m not doing a very good job of it as about every scripture reminds me of some-thing that should be written indidvidually.
America’s main problem is that we as a nation have forgotten that our benefactor, Jesus Christ, The Great Governor of the Universe, made us the world’s top nation. Let us look at some Biblical wisdom on this.
The Great Governor worked with Moses to lead Israel out of Egypt to start His nation and they came out fully financed with the gold of Egypt and even clothing from Egypt. He then fed, watered and protected them in every way, even health wise, in a harsh desert for forty years. Let us look at some scripture:
Exodus 13:21 The Lord was going before them in a pillar of cloud by day to lead them on the way, and in a pillar of fire by night to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night. And 14:24 At the morning watch, the Lord looked down on the army of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and cloud and brought the army of the Egyptians into confusion. Deuteronomy 8:4 Your clothing did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years.
The Great Governor then made all kinds of awesome promises for Israel’s future welfare (Deuteronomy 15:4) and prosperity if they would only follow Him:
Deuteronomy 28:1-14 “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.
And the Lord made even more promises like you should have no poor! All this came true but Israel later forgot the Lord and so the Lord had to destroy them. Will that happen to America because just as Paul said what happened to Israel was meant to teach those who follow in 1 Corinthians 10:1-6 and 11? America had godly founders who followed Biblical knowledge and this all came true for America also. But like Israel, America rebelled and turned from the Lord and now we are suffering mightily as we keep failing in about every endeavor because the simple truth is no nation can prosper and be successful without the Lord. America, the most powerful nation, is not in the Bible in the end times. Could it be that America must be destroyed like Israel? Could it be that America’s destruction will happen suddenly when America no longer supports Israel which is looking more and more likely to happen.
America’s only hope is repentance and revival and it must start in Christ’s churches.
Deuteronomy 28 follows the 14 verses of fantastic promises with a passage of 54 verses of curses if the Lord is not followed and these horrible curses did happen. Even the most horrible unspeakable curses did happen. Surely Christ’s Church cares enough for America that it will find a way to turn America from our evil path.
One of America’s great evangelist of an America awakening said the church must take the right ground.
Now about those old Post-it notes. They have been thrown and we will start fresh next week. I have faith the Lord will keep guiding me and in any event, I’ll be making more Post-it notes this week! The Bible is to exciting to not make notes.
