“But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying,
We do not desire this one to reign over us! ”
America once again has publicly said…
We Don’t want God to rule over us!
In Israel’s early history, when they had been in Canaan for a few hundred years, Samuel was the prophet of God at the time. Israel which was surrounded by various warring nations, wanted a king just like their neighbours. All they had was this…this prophet… a nice bloke…but he was no king! He didn’t even dress like one. They were tired of him.
So the elders of Israel came to Samuel and demanded a king like the nations around them. They came to him because he WAS good at least for one thing, he had to appoint and anoint a man as king. Well, that is what they knew God would want. Ironic?
Samuel as usual took this request to Jehovah God with a great sense of rejection. He had given Israel his life. He had never taken a thing from them by force for himself. He had not abused anyone. He had not stolen from anyone. He had always told them the truth…whatever it was.
God told Samuel…it is not YOU they have rejected. They have rejected Me from being king over them. Tell them what they want to hear. And tell them the kind of king that they will get.
That king was none other than Saul. son of Kish, of the tribe of Benjamin. He was a stunning figure of a man. Tall and good looking. Very athletic and powerful. Very charming.
But after a few good years, he became a rogue, a tyrant, who imposed heavy taxes on the people and took the best young men and the best young women of the country and made them to serve under his harsh rulership.
Saul at first was a very good king who had the blessing of God upon him. But then he rebelled against God, and the gentle Holy Spirit of God left him and that made room for an very evil malignant spirit from the Devil to really harrass him. He was never the same man again.
When a nation rejects God….
they will get another ‘god’ – ruler, that is very opposite to God.
God has said –
Whatsoever a man sows, that will he also reap.
America is leading the way once again, and the nations will follow in her wake.
America the free??!
She has announced herself as being freed from God’s resrictions. She has thrown off all restraint. She has now in place her own set of Laws. Laws in complete defiance of God’s holy and good Laws.
God is not wanted in her public schools. (1963 wasn’t it?)
God now has no Rights for Life concerning the unborn children of American mothers. (1973 if we are correct.)
And now God is no longer wanted in American marriages or homes according to the Surpreme Court Justices. Homo Phobia is out. Gay is in.
So…It is now a crime to repeat God’s indictment against homosexuality or on homosexual marriages.
What will it be next?
Legalized suicide assistance?
Legalized homicide of any one who stands against this new mighty God-less America?
America has created a spiritual vortex which she is powerless to stop. She is spiritually out of control.
The killing of unborn children has produced a massive disregard for the hidden human life, and any human life. That was the first step, and the most significant. 40 millions less people to control, to indoctrinate, to be concerned about.
Cursed is he that takes reward (payment) to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen.
Babies in the womb are INNOCENT persons who have not commited any sin against God or against any Law of any nation.
The removal of an official God consciousness in the public schools has robbed millions of children of their God-given right to maintain or gain an awareness of their Creator in a public arena funded by tax payers money, which money has as its motto – In God We Trust. How ironic.
A nation who publicly throws out God becomes a victim of another and completely opposite sort of god.
But God will NOT stand by and allow such a nation to go unchecked.
The earth is the Lord’s and the fulness of it.
This earth belongs to God o peoples of the world.
This earth belongs to God o mighty ones on the earth.
This earth was the jewel of God in the physical universe and corrupt men are destroying it with impunity.
God, the Almighty God has seen and heard, and has mercifully stepped back, longing for rebellious man to repent wholeheartedly and return to their Maker and Redeemer.
But He will not stand by forever and allow this onslaught against His justice and kindness to be left unanswered.
Blessed is the nation whose God is Jehovah,
the people He has elected for His inheritance.
So says Jehovah, Cursed is the man who trusts in man,
and who makes flesh his arm,
and who turns aside his heart from Jehovah.
If one man turns his heart away from Jehovah is cursed, what then for the nation who publicly does so?
What shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
1 Peter 4:17.
Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
Jesus Christ was made a curse for us so that we should not remain under the curse of the Law which was broken by man.
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
