As we watch the financial system of this nation crumble around us, and as we witness the corruption and down right thievery by our elected officials and those in high official offices, we are reminded of the words of Jeremiah the prophet:

"A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed." Jeremiah 50:37

What Jeremiah was speaking of was the devouring sword of God's judgment upon a sinless, Godless nation, devoid of any righteousness, self-discipline, or morality. Jeremiah speaks of a sword being upon their horses and chariots. This is speaking of this nation's military which has been used up. Our soldiers are worn out from duty after duty in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere around the world. This nation's military arsenals are depleted, and its equipment obsolete and worn out, and the will to defend this nation is gone. If a mandatory draft were implemented today, many young men and women would flee to Canada or elsewhere to keep from going into service.

Jeremiah states a sword is upon this nation's mingled people in the midst of her. He states they have become as women. This is surely true today. The men of this nation have sold out to the female sex. Women run the news broadcasts. They have become the legal experts, the financial experts, the sports experts, and the list goes on. They have become sportscasters. They have been made judges at the local, state, and federal levels. They are in local and state politics, even senators and legislators in the house of representatives. This nation's men have become like women, and are subservient to their wives, and even to their daughters. In this most recent election race a women ran for the highest office in the land in one party, and in the other party the opponent chose a woman for his vice-presidential running mate. When are the men of this nation going to stand up and take their rightful, God-given place?

Jeremiah states a sword is upon her treasures, and they shall be robbed. America, the once, most powerful and riches nation on earth, must now borrow ten billion dollars a month, just to keep its troops in Iraq, as well as all the other money needed to run this nation. In contrast, the writer of Deuteronomy informs us what will happen to any nation who serves the one, true God:

"The Lord shall open unto thee His good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow. And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:" Deuteronomy 28:12-13

A nation who honors God will be blessed above measure. It will be the head, and not the tail. A God-blessed nation will not have to borrow from other nations. The Psalmist writes: "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord" Psalm 33:12. God blessed this nation above all nations. But what happens to a nation who turns their back on God and allows other gods to be lifted up in His place?

"The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail. Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which he commanded thee." Deuteronomy 28:43-45

This nation has become the tail, and not the head. The tail has been wagging the dog, but now the tail has dropped off, and this nation has become a dead dog. Yes, the devouring sword has devoured this nation's treasures. The strangers within its gates (illegal aliens) consume this nation's welfare money. Its prisons house thousands of these unwanted illegals. Now there is even a fear they can control our elections. Laws are being passed to protect their presence here. Safe havens have been established to protect them from the laws of the land. This nation borrows money from any country, bank, or willing source who will loan it money. Well we know, what the end of such a nation is: "Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed" Deuteronomy 28:45. God's judgment hand is truly on all those who turn their backs on Him.
