Dear Body, If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? February 1, 2009
When we look at an old house, with its sagging roof and the windows broken out, and the whole building in disrepair, we know it is because the foundation is decaying. When the foundation of any house decays, the building won't last long.
We need to ask ourselves, "What is the foundation this nation was founded upon?" The foundation of this great nation was `In God We Trust.' This is inscribed on our money, and on many buildings throughout this nation.
Most of the founding fathers of this nation were Bible believing, God fearing men, and they tried to instill these ideas into the Bill of Rights and in the Constitution. Even the founding fathers who were not Bible believing and God fearing men had a high moral standard they lived by.
The outgoing President Bush, in his final news conference made the statement that the morality in this nation is very high. Maybe that is the way it looks to him from his ivory tower, but down where the rubber meets the road, things look very different.
The Psalmist David asks the question:
"If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" Psalm 11:3
The foundation of any nation is the home. When the home is destroyed, then the foundation of the nation is destroyed. When the home is destroyed, it also destroys the moral foundation of the nation. Fifty-five percent of the marriages performed in this nation last less than five years - - - and over sixty percent of the children in this nation have only one parent. The children are no longer taught the Bible as their moral base because the Supreme Court has taken prayers out of schools. Because of this moral decay, many do not even bother to get married. Over fifty percent of the children born in this nation are born to unmarried couples or single mothers. This is not counting the millions of innocent unborn who have been murdered in the womb.
Adultery and fornication are running wild in this nation. There are even television shows that promote the idea of wife swapping and homosexuality. Just more reasons why the foundation of this nation is crumbling.
Another reason the foundation of this nation is crumbling is the financial practices of the large corporations, the Congress, the banks, and the financial gurus. An example of one such travesty is a man, who pulled off a fifty billion dollar ponzi scheme, yet was permitted to remain in his ten million dollar penthouse. The congress has also given three hundred and fifty billion dollars to the head of the Treasury, who is not being held accountable for what he did with it. Now the Congress wants another three hundred and fifty billion dollars with no plan as to what they are going to do with the funds.
The great prophet Ezekiel addressed this problem to ancient Israel:
"In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by extortion, and hast forgotten Me, saith the Lord God." Ezekiel 22:12
The banks and the government are all extortioners. When one borrows money from the bank and pays ten or twenty years on the loan, then gets sick so he cannot make the payments, the bank forecloses and takes it all back, giving the borrow nothing in return - - - all the money paid, all the improvements made - - - are gone.
The large corporations knowingly hire illegal aliens for cheap labor, putting Americans out of work. Those who lose their jobs because of this, are losing their homes, their cars, and their families, while the extortioners live in luxury with their bonuses and high salaries. When their corporation fails, they look to the tax payers to bail them out. Truly the foundation of this great nation is crumbling fast.
The Psalmist David asks, "What is the righteous to do?" The answer is simple. Divorce yourself from this corrupt system. Cast away the cords of this system, and get ready for its financial collapse. Get your finances into your hands, and render unto Caesar the things that are Caesars, and the things that are God's, unto God.
We are truly in the clutches of winter here in Northern Maine, as are many others in other areas of the nation. But all is going well, and we want to thank all those who support this ministry - - - prayerfully and financially. May God richly bless you in all your endeavors.
As always in Christ
