God's Judgment on America

God has given us His Word to live by. As we read the Bible we can check every situation we face today and understand how God would have us deal with it. The All-wise Solomon wrote:

"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." Ecclesiastes 1:9

There is nothing new under the sun! As we hear about and witness the escapades of President Clinton and his unholy inner circle, we are reminded of Manasseh, the king of Judah. Manasseh ruled fifty-five years in Jerusalem.

"And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, after the abominations of the heathen, whom the Lord cast out before the children of Israel." II Kings 21:2

Many evils were attributed to Manasseh. He rebuilt the high places his father Hezekiah had destroyed. He built altars to Baal, the god of plenty. He caused the worship of the host of heaven (astrology). He built altars to all the host of heaven in the house and courts of the Lord. He used enchantments, familiar spirits, and wizardry (witchcraft). Manasseh shed innocent blood and filled the streets of Jerusalem with his sin. He caused Judah to sin and he provoked the Lord to anger. God sent his prophets to Manasseh and Judah to get them to repent:

"But they hearkened not: and Manasseh seduced the to do more evil than did the nations whom the Lord destroyed before the children of Israel. Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle." II Kings 21:9 & 12

We also read when Josiah, Manasseh's grandson become king . . .

". . . he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the Lord where the women wove hangings for the grove." II Kings 23:7

Manasseh had allowed the homosexuals to build their houses next to the house of God. Bill Clinton has done all the evil Manasseh did and more. He has allowed the Sodomites to wear our country's uniform. He has allowed homosexual marriages. Now he has mandated the Boy Scouts of America cannot discriminate against homosexuals. He signed the bill to allow late term abortions. He truly has filled our streets with the blood of the innocent. His whoremonging, lying, stealing, cheating has become scandalous, and even murder has been laid at his doorstep. Can God help but to judge this nation. God's prophet spoke to Judah:

"And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab: and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down." II Kings 21:13

In ancient times when a plate was wiped clean and turned upside down, it meant you did not eat that table anymore. It should be obvious to God's people we are not partaking of the Lord's goodness any more in this nation. Our plate has been wiped clean and turned upside down. Our weather patterns have changed. We blame it on El Nino. El Nino means the baby. We need not blame the coming judgment on this nation on the baby, but rather the men who run this nation and have sinned greatly before the Lord. As God's people we need to deal with the sin in our life, and as Jesus warned:

"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." Luke 21:36
