“When God wants to judge a nation, He gives them wicked rulers”.
Isn’t that the pattern we see in the Bible? When Israel would turn its back on God, He would leave them to their devices and they would bring upon themselves wicked rulers.
What does in mean when you can’t find America in Bible Prophecy? Many other nations are clearly named, but there is no clear reference to America. There are those who claim to find our nation in prophecy. but they must stretch Scripture to do so. Even when they do claim to find us, our roll is minimal at best.
We need to ask ourselves what this means. Does this mean the America comes to an end? If we look at Rome, who would have thought that great empire would have fallen? We can say the same about the other great empires of the past, but they all fell. Often, when a people becomes to big for their britches, they become foolish.
George Mason said:
“ As nations can not be rewarded or punished in the next world they must be in this. By an inevitable chain of causes & effects providence punishes national sins, by national calamities.”
Isn’t it wonderful that we used to have leaders who feared God so much that when the debated which laws to put into our Constitution they considered how God would bring judgment if they turned from Him.
Think about this quote for a moment. When a nation turns it’s back on God, He brings national calamities as judgment upon it for its sin.
I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; (Proverbs 1:26)
This passage should bring fear into our hearts and humble us. When we willingly turn away from God and His precepts He will bring calamities upon us and when we come to Him for help He will laugh at us. This may seem cruel, but don’t we deserve it? We knew better and turned away anyway. Isn’t this what we are dealing with today? We go to God and ask why, and no help comes.
We are living in a day where the police, the very people we should look to with honor and respect because they keep us from crossing the line between law and lawlessness, are disrespected. We are not going to have perfect police because they are human, but for the most part our police men and women are good people who want to serve and protect us from the bad guys. There are a few bad apples, but the attacks from the anarchist is not the solution.
I am wondering if we are headed toward a civil war. When people openly march, like they did over a year ago in New York, crying out saying, “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now.” we are in deep trouble.
Do these people really think the solution is to kill our police men and women? This is exactly what happened just two days later as two policemen were were assassinated in Brooklyn by a black man thinking he was just evening the score.
It seems that we have reached a point where we don’t care about the corruption. Just this last week the FBI Director came out and made the case against Hillary Clinton and her extreme carelessness with national security information. She handled it in a terrible way. The week before we had the report on Benghazi saying that she deliberately lied to us and tried to cover it up. In both of these things we were told that Hillary did wrong, but she should not be prosecuted.
Doesn’t it bother us that Americans don’t seem to care at all about all the corruption. They seem to be happy to put a person who lies and handles our national security information carelessly into the White House. Either she is extremely incompetent, or she is extremely crooked. This doesn’t seem to matter to many Americans. The Bible says that when we turn our back on God, something very serious happens.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; (Romans 1:28)
A reprobate mind is incapable of discerning between good and evil. It is a mind that isn’t affected by the evil around it. Its conscience is so seared that it cannot see what is wrong.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20)
Doesn’t this sound like the day in which we are living? We live in a generation of liars and the lies are believed by most people. The tell us that we were not created, we evolved from some monkey-like creature. If we admit there is a Creator, then we must admit that there is a God to whom we are responsible. We therefore we invent a lie to do away with God.
They also tell us that it is not a baby, it is just a blob of flesh. They tell us that the woman has the right to choose what to do with her own body. She does when it is about her body, but when it is about the baby’s body, she does not. She has the right to choose whether or not to get physically involved, but when it results in a baby, she doesn’t want to face the consequences. She believes the lie that she has the right to murder her baby because it is messing up her life. She doesn’t want to be held responsible for her actions.
One of the newer lies is that, even though someone was born a man and looks like a man, he is really a woman. It is just one lie after another that we are expected to believe.

Our Government’s refusal to uphold the laws should bother us, but it doesn’t
Our nation is being bankrupted, but as long as everyone gets their handout, they don’t care.
America is being Polarized
Political Division — all time high
- Many Pundits telling us that this is an election unlike no other.
- Un Favorable Numbers for each major candidate – all time high
- Trump at 70% and Hillary at 53% (before FBI director Comey gave his announcement)
- So Many Christians and Conservatives feel disenfranchised by the Republican Party
We had better be prepared for it to get worse. I wouldn’t be surprised if Hillary Clinton get voted in. I can’t say that I am terribly thrilled about the other option either.
What does all of this mean? Let me go back to where I started. Where do we find America in Bible prophecy? Without stretching things, we cannot be found. Does this mean that something will happen so we will no longer be a nation? Does it mean that we will decline to the point where we no longer have any influence in the world? Could it mean that God’s judgment on this nation will result in a nuclear war? I don’t know what will happen, but I can tell you this, our demise may not happen for another generation, but we are definitely moving in the wrong direction.
The only solution is that God’s people turn to the Lord, and call upon Him with humble repentant hearts. I can’t help but think of the following verse:
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
There is hope. Let’s choose hope.
