“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan. (Proverbs 29:2)” Leaders have a responsibility to govern laws. What happens when citizens knowingly elect rulers who openly confess to legislating laws that go against the commandments of God? Society has leaders who campaign on supporting immorality, yet citizens have no issue with casting a vote for them. Over time, America has chosen a path of tolerance on social issues which in the past such issues were looked upon in contempt. With each generation, the original connection of America’s value system according to the Bible has faded. It appears America has completely turned its back on God. Those familiar with the characteristics of God know that judgments soon befall a nation when they ignore God’s warnings. America has seen its share of judgments from tornadoes, hurricanes, and economic struggles. However, there is another form of judgment that Televangelist Perry Stone points out for a nation that has sinned against The Lord: God will allow a bad leader to rule over the nation. Is America facing this current judgment? Stone mentioned that signs of bad leadership include: leaders bringing citizens under bondage (i.e. increase heavy taxes) and giving leaders the capability to pass any legislation they want without any opposition. In addition, as masses of spiritually blind people follow bad leaders, God will give these same people over to their own will and godless desires.
What can people do? The Bible instructs, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)”. Although America is declining, there is hope. Many have wondered about America’s place during the Last Days. Why isn’t the United States of America mentioned in future End Time events described in the Bible? Sadly, it’s possible that the reason America isn’t mention is because in the future, America will no longer exist. Everyone in the world has a front row seat to the decline of the United States of America: The value of the US dollar is falling, the downsizing of our military, the economy is not recovering, and there are a record number of Americans on food stamps. More so, the power of the United States is no longer feared or respected. Without a doubt, America is experiencing symptoms of poor leadership. Citizens are suffering the results of putting their trust in man to solve problems versus putting their faith in God.
One by one, the 20 unit: domino qq pkv that held America’s foundation together are quickly falling and its collapse seems to be near. Take a look at the recent headlines: “The United States of Decline” “20 Signs America is in Decline” “Decline of the American Empire?” One challenge is not to be weary and long for the days of America’s former glory. Even though Christians are citizens in the world, our true citizenship resides in Heaven (Philippians 3:20). Remember that no matter what, God is always in control. It is God who changes the times and the seasons, He removes kings and raises up kings (Daniel 2:21). It’s possible that current leaders within our government are serving as the very impetus of the collapse of America Empire so that another empire may rise to take its place.
For those with discernment, living during such a time as this can be exciting-only because the Savior of mankind, Jesus Christ is soon to return. The world has become more and more wicked and the leaders in authority are embracing the wickedness. Yet, let not our hearts be troubled for He has overcome the world. “For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. (1st Timothy 2 5-6)”
