The Fall of the American Babylon, Part III

The Fall of the American Babylon, Part III

Is America really worse than other nations?

Before that can be answered, two principles of judgment that God uses must be understood.

And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. 

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

If we’ve put ‘In God we Trust’ on our money, have had religious freedom to publish the message of the Messiah to the world for more than 200 years, and we are the richest country in history, then we better make good on it. But instead our Churches, followed soon thereafter by our Nation began to spew our self-glorifying filth into the world and abort babies by the millions.

Other nations do the same sorts of things. However, no other nation in history has committed itself from its foundation to God like America has done, nor had the freedoms this people has experienced, or the received blessings of God in such abundance, save one: Israel.

This is why ancient Israel was judged and virtually eradicated from remembrance until 1948. Israel was accountable for receiving God's instructions, knowing them and doing them. A nation that has committed itself to Jesus and His Father from its foundation and then turns its back on Jesus and His Father should expect to receive the same, or worse, for ancient Israel was not gifted with the Revelation of Jesus—and we have been so gifted.

As the Church Goes, So Goes the Nation.
The fact that most American homes have a copy of the Bible carries a responsibility. Americans alone have the full scriptures, free time, and prosperity to study them and practice them--yet do not. Most American Christians don't even know when God is judging their Nation, even though Scripture is clear. For example, we are not to pray against Homosexuality and fight publically to keep homosexuality out of our culture. Doing so is in direct contradiction to God's Judgment on this nation. Don't believe me? Have you even read Romans chapters 1 and 2?

Christians should be repenting for those things that they have allowed into their churches, the compromising the Truth, that has led to the culture turning from God.

Here's a hint: Christians are not to be Purpose Driven, Power of Positive Thinking, Emerging (into what?), or Prosperity minded, but rather, Bible Reading, Bible Believing and Holy Spirit Guided.

What specifically should believers be repenting for? Along with 1 Peter 4:17, this passage from Romans 1: 29-32 is your answer:

"They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them."

Perhaps, if enough believers get on their knees now, it will not be too late for this formerly great nation to reclaim a measure of its spiritual greatness as a beacon of light in this lost and dying world and the USA. In fact, with enough prayer and repentance the Greatest Generation may in fact be yet in front of us.
