    Excellent Peggy Noonan Piece That Most Americans Can Relate To...

    Good Morning Folks..

    Great OP ED piece by Peggy Noonan in the Wall Street Journal about the state of America, and Western Europe at the moment... What she states within her article is actually biblical... In Deuteronomy chapter 28 verses 43-44 it states...

    "The alien who is among you shall rise higher, and higher above you, and you shall come down lower, and lower... He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him: he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail...

    Now lets read the reason why this will transpire in verse 45...

    "Moreover all these curses shall come upon you, and pursue, and overtake you, until you are destroyed because you did not obey the voice of the Lord you God to keep HIS commandments (see Exodus chapter 20 for the 10 rules that should govern our behavior according to scripture), and HIS statues which HE commanded you."..

    Is what has been transpiring within our country, and in Western European nations a warning shot from God?...

    The squandering of the freedom we enjoy in this country, because our Almighty Creator has allowed for liberty to be enjoyed, is not based on our righteousness, or anything that we actually deserve quite frankly... But in accordance to HIS sovereign will, and that which GOD had planned for long ago, was the emergence of this nation as a world power... With power, and liberty comes the responsibility to acknowledge, and live life in accordance to the will of our Creator...

    We have not suffered oppression so as to not have any excuses as a nation... We have had access to the WORD of GOD freely, and without hindrance at all... But does our nation truly reflect a God fearing nation?..... These past 50 plus years have shown the nature that all who were born, and are born (Save the ONE who came to save us from our carnal condition), and that we tend to gravitate towards hedonistic behavior rather than God's definition of what is right, and wrong...

    Over time we have come to find excuses for sinful behavior, and justify it rather than humble ourselves (as a nation), and overcome it... Easier to place blame on one's circumstances, and behavior when sin defines a person's very being... Especially if that person has been taken in by the sin they have committed, and loves it... Oh, how we humans can be seduced by the Babylonian spirit that permeates our world...

    Read the entire chapter of Deuteronomy 28, and see what will happen if our nation does not repent as God desires... It does not paint a very pretty picture, but should bring people to their knees if one is willing to see the error in their ways... True repentance is not easy for those whose spirit is defined by iniquity... It does take the help of God to bring one to the point of asking for forgiveness... But true repentance entails overcoming the sin that one has been granted mercy for through the Son of God as well...

    Do we have the heart in America to do this?... Will laws be abolished that are considered an abomination to God, and ultimately lead to HIM bringing forth judgment upon a nation?... Has the spirit within this nation as a whole reached a point of no return, and we are about to go the way of every powerful nation that God has lifted up in times past?... We shall see!...

    Repentance towards God is the hope of this writer... But quite frankly judging by what I see, and read about daily, it is a hope that is quite dim...

    Which is why we look forward to the age beyond this present evil age... The return of Messiah Jesus is mankind's only hope for spiritual healing.. Ultimately that is where the problem lies, and needs to be addressed in order for all else to be made well again within the physical, and even more importantly, spiritual realm...

    Peace, and Love Be With You All Through the One True God...

    PS.. I would like to share with you a song which is based on Ezekiel chapter 37, as well as Revelation chapter 20 verses 1-5... Specifically verse 5... Great inspirational song, and one that declares a portion of the plan of salvation that God Almighty has planned for those created in HIS image... A portion that has been misunderstood, yet shows how merciful our Creator will be, and always has been...

    Here is the link to that song... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi3R3Ork7VM
