Text: "And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes." Malachi 3:11
AMERICA IN PERIL
The way GOD dealt with ancient Israel He deals with every nation: the blessings promised for ethical
values and the warnings of destruction for a nation's infidelity to moral decency. Let us review the principles that allow
GOD to sustain a nation and see their application to where we are today.
First things first: Christ calls for repentance and the conversion of hearts: “Verily,
verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”
Jn.3:5. Jesus knocks on the door of our leaders hearts asking permission to come and live out the wonders of His Law that
others may be blessed. The fact that solutions are not being found to the increasing desperation Americans face because of
the inability to provide essential needs for family and charity proves that lack of converted hearts in government business
GOD calls for the leaders of America to repent from all sin: in government,
in business, and especially in the ruling Christian churches (for they claim the moral arm of our nation). Together, their
decisions have fostered sin's dominion over the land. This study will show that this has brought every affliction American
citizens are facing today, focusing on the Bible's passages proving that any country who truly follows GOD (not in word
only but in deed) will not suffer infertility, famine, disease, natural disaster, or war. GOD would have the legal right to
come and dwell among His faithful people. So if our leaders were to abandon the many sinful practices, (sins even a little
child can see) then and only then can "GOD bless America." But He can never give His blessing to sin, for sin is
destroying the very fabric of life, and GOD'S goal is to remove the threat caused by sin’s dominion. For the day
is coming when this Earth will be sin-free; but not because of man's voluntary effort, oh no. The luciferian tyrants running
this world will never voluntarily step down. They must be forcibly removed. This is where Christ the "King of kings and
LORD of lords" comes to crush this pagan/religio/politico regime masquerading in virtue (Dan.2:35).
History verifies that in Christ's day the civil and religious leaders were called to step down—to humble themselves
before the Son of GOD Who alone can deliver from the jurisdiction of Satan's power. But they would not. And so it is today.
The devil is deceiving our leaders with his "great signs and wonders" fostering a betrayal encompassing every member
of the human family, leading all to stand condemned before the same Holy Law that condemns him (Eze.28:16).
Two examples of GOD’S promises:
Exodus 15:26 If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God,
and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put
none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.
Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep
unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers: And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply
thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase
of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee. Thou shalt be blessed
above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle. And the LORD will take away from
thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon
all them that hate thee.
These words are GOD'S promise to prevent the common
afflictions people face. Those who uphold their allegiance to GOD'S Commandments are promised to receive these blessings,
because GOD is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). What He gives to one He gives to all. And all that He calls men to do,
nothing is beyond His ability of provision. The following verses expound in greater detail the same principles where a people
who truly live under GOD'S jurisdiction are spared the onslaught of Satan's swarm of afflictions.
At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy
it; If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto
them. And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do
evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them. Now therefore
go to, speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I frame evil against
you, and devise a device against you: return ye now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.
And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil
Mal.3:6-12 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Even from the
days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto
you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return? Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say,
Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD
of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to
receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall
your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts. And all nations shall call you blessed: for
ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.
and morally "the Land of the Free" has been for many years in steady decline. GOD has ordained this slow progress
to ruin, providing sufficient evidence of our clear and present danger, to give His children the opportunity to repent, that
reforms be made and His Spirit may dwell in their souls—forever.
GOD'S gentle hand has our land slowly weakened. In both national security and human virtue America lies vulnerable to
attack from a host of threats. For a hundred years our nation has been ravaged by every conceivable threat: from the economic
stranglehold imposed by the world's bankers, four major wars with the fifth in progress and a sixth on its way, concluding
with a seventh, multiple epidemics of crime and disease, the never-ending droughts, fires, floods, tornados, hurricanes, industrial
pollution, and general greed of the populous, all fostered by a system of government and business ethics that allows for adultery,
lying, theft and even murder, for the so-called greater good.
The most fundamental
teachings of Scripture are two moral ethics: to never, under any circumstances shed innocent blood; and to always be a man
(or woman) of your word. The patriarchs, prophets, and good kings always lived by this maxim. The United States does not obey
these pinnacle laws of heaven. As a result, the innocent blood this land has on its hands must be and will be met with an
equivalent retribution. This has always been GOD'S method to confront the hardness of men's hearts. In forcing them
to go through what they've caused others to go through, GOD'S purpose is to lead men to “repent and live.”
But rarely does GOD'S appointed method succeed in freewill beings. But there are some with sufficient humility of conscience
to acknowledge their wrongs and repent before a GOD who is eager to forgive. Nevertheless, the law of science and morality
are in agreement: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction; "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for
whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Galatians 6:7.
the centuries, the continuing trend of man's transgressing the laws of life has produced harmful results, and in nearly
every case. You'd think that with all the history of mismanagement in national and international affairs causing such
levels of poverty and animosity in other countries that our leaders would revise their offensive value system to disarm this
animosity. But their continued employment of the sins of deception, theft and betrayal simply for profit, Bible prophecy forecasts
will never end, even to the utter destruction of our world. "For the love of money is the root of all evil." I Tim.6;10.
And this country fertilizes the very root of evil! This has been done by legalizing sin!
As a result of America's war against heaven's definition of decency, GOD will, in the end, have no legal right to
foil the plans of America's enemies (from within and without), enemies our very sins have fostered. And worst of all,
America's reputation as a "Christian" nation brings shame to the LORD Jesus Christ. Every sin in government,
business, even those evangelized by the church slanders GOD, "seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh,
and put him to an open shame." Heb.6:6. Ultimately, our actions are as foolish as providing a weapon to the one whose
sole purpose is to use it against us. And although our nation's fall may be slow, (by the grace of GOD'S longsuffering),
the finality of our nation's demise is sure (Isa.24).
There is a simple reason why this land keeps facing
increasing hardship. The historical parallel may found in the story of ancient Israel. The principles of GOD'S relationship
with Israel are the same in how He relates to all nations, as the Apostle Peter so clearly stated, "God is no respecter
of persons." Acts 10:34. This is one more area where the Bible shines its light in the darkness of our world, that none
be left blind to the issues of the great controversy over sin's authority to afflict every living thing and the boundaries
whereby GOD can intervene and spare us from these many afflictions.
As the threats
increase, destabilizing our nation, there will come a corresponding response from the people: always reflecting, to one degree
or another, the fundamental desire of all life: to survive. Today, these are times of relative security. And to see the extent
of crime and callous indifference in this general time of peace and prosperity one can just imagine what men will do when
the essentials of life are denied: especially in those densely populated areas where natural resources are grossly limited
to people's access.
In Florida, the threat of a hurricane over a given area
causes gas stations to run out of gas in a single day; grocery store shelves get stripped of life's provisions in a single
day. Our very system providing life's sustenance is a very fragile system, where one threat of nature can cripple a large
area of population. Now just imagine multiple threats coming simultaneously over the entire country, a multi-pronged assault
of war, natural disasters, pandemic and famine. What do you think the citizens of America will do? Will they be rational or
irrational in their response? Will they demand of our leaders to pursue immoral solutions simply to continue living a life
of ignorance and indifference to the real issues facing the human race? The lesson of history gives us the answer: Yes. “My
people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Hos.4:6.
The weight of Christ’s
words will come to pass: “Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall
find it.” Lu.17:33. The innocent have always paid (dearly) for the selfish indifference of others: always caught in
the crossfire between two extremes, each competing for the supremacy whether in war or finance. The desperate people will
gather, and those who lust for power will come forward to lead. This will begin a chain reaction whose consequence to innocent
life cannot be measured. Mob mentality will bring a colossal wave of insanity this nation has never seen before. It is despicable
what men will do in numbers what they would never do alone. Multiple times this lesson is seen in history. And its repetition
is about to be unleashed in our generation as the financial stranglehold caused by our luciferian rulers tightens its grip.
To illustrate the weakness of character, a university study showed that the average
American when denied only three meals, and no food is available in the foreseeable future, he, or she will become “homicidal.”
So, basically, in a little over a day the average American will consider murder as a means of survival. Will the recommended
remedies of our civil leaders be sufficient to preserve the security of our citizens under such a panoply of threats? Bible
prophecy says No. Scripture declares that our leaders, in order to keep their ill-gotten paychecks, will make decisions that
only increase the severity of the judgments of GOD on this land. And the decisions made by our religious leaders, who have
made sin a “tradition,” will escalate ten-fold the afflictions of our land when they come forward and demand the
lawmakers enforce the worship of God, under the pretense of insuring GOD'S protection for America and calming people's
fears. But this so-called remedy is in denial of Christ's explicit command forbidding ANY religious tyranny (Lu.22:25,26).
Under the U.S. Constitution the social laws of America were to honor the last six Commandments, while our freedom for diversity
of worship the first four Commandments are assigned. Our leaders have systematically worked against this utopian model for
government. When church and state unite, America will utterly collapse, in fulfillment of the words of David, "It is
time for thee, LORD to work: for they have made void thy law." This "work" of GOD is not one of blessing, but
one of His removal, as He said, “Woe also to them when I depart from them.” Hos.9:12 And when GOD leaves, take
heed! The devil comes; and he's been looking forward to this moment for a long time; and the things he will do through
mobs, nature, war, and disease, we have no concept of his power over the elements and the hearts of men. The Bible describes
them all, but men are willfully blind.
The Bible warns that this scenario is a
non-fiction prediction. In preparation for this real future, let us ask, What can be done to turn this around? Can anything
be done to reverse the wrong direction of American values? "Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive
that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with
him." Acts 10:34,35. In this declaration proclaimed under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost, there seen a universal doctrine:
one that extends to every nation of Earth.
At the heart of it all: Among the most
solemn times of Earth's history GOD gave the children of Israel the Ten Commandments. In this act He gave the whole world
the Ten Commandments: the tangible evidence of what we have known all along to be true in our hearts, knowing right from wrong.
When GOD gave the children of Israel the Moral Law, as well as the laws of government and of diet, did He not give them to
bless every nation who would believe His counsel guarantying a nation's security, personal prosperity of its citizens
and a stable health for all? For any to declare GOD'S counsel to apply only to the Jews is a statement of ignorance based
on the fact that “GOD is no respecter of persons.” Acts 10:34.But this is what we hear, over and over again, concerning
the laws of health, government, and even the Ten Commandments.
remedies are always simple. GOD’S Word covers them all. It is only by the men who rule outside of Scripture’s
safe boundaries that our world will never change course. And so the loss of life due to the selfish few cannot be measured.
But the blessing for the faithful in all this is that the saints will see the destination of sin’s rule and as a result
rejoice at the close of “the seven plagues” (Rev.16) when Jesus comes to sweep His Bride off her feet and carry
her home to His Father’s House in Heaven. “And so shall we ever be with the LORD.” I Thess.4:17.
"Even so, come, Lord Jesus." Rev.22:20.

v.15 And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul
abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:
v.16 I also will do this unto
you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow
of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
v.17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain
before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.

will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.
v.19 And I will break the pride

unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.
v.22 I will also
send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and
your high ways shall be desolate.
v.23 And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary unto me;
v.24 Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins.
v.25 And I will bring a sword
upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send
the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.
v.36 And upon them that are left
alive of you I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf shall
chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall when none pursueth.
v.37 And they shall fall one
upon another, as it were before a sword, when none pursueth: and ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies.
v.38 And ye shall
perish among the heathen, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.
v.39 And they that are left of you shall pine away in their
iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.
v.40 If they shall
confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that
also they have walked contrary unto me;
v.41 And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into
the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their

Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.
v.43 The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her sabbaths,
while she lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity: because, even because they
despised my judgments, and because their soul abhorred my statutes.
v.44 And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their
enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them:
for I am the LORD their God.

out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their God: I am the LORD.

this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

v.46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.
v.47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the
abundance of all things;
v.48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall
send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron
upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.
v.49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee
from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;
v.50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor show favour
to the young:
v.51 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until
thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy
sheep, until he have destroyed thee.
v.52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until
thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy
gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee. v.53 And thou shalt eat
the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege,
and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:
v.54 So that the man that
is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward
the remnant of his children which he shall leave:
v.55 So that he will not give to any of them
of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith
thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates.
v.56 The tender and delicate woman among
you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall
be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter, v.57 And
toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat
them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.
v.58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that
thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;
v.59 Then the LORD will
make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses,
and of long continuance.
v.60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which
thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.
v.61 Also every sickness, and every plague,
which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.
v.62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest
not obey the voice of the LORD thy God.
v.63 And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced
over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought;
and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.
v.64 And the LORD
shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods,
which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.
v.65 And among these nations
shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart,
and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:
v.66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee;
and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:
v.67 In the morning
thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart
wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
v.68 And the
LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again:
and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.
In closing, America need not suffer any affliction, whether from a threatened economy, disease, natural disaster, or war.
And the fact that all these afflictions have this country in a stranglehold, with no end in sight, proves both the refusal
of its religious, government and business leaders to live up to their privileged responsibility, for they are unanimous in
their demand to allow the free exercise of sin.
In the beginning of the human family, there were two brothers: Cain and Abel. Both exercised the religion of their choice.
But only one gave honor to GOD'S Word. Both heard it, but one denied it. The Bible says, "And the LORD
had respect unto Abel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect." Genesis 4:4,5.
Cain demanded salvation according to his method, by his works, and not GOD'S. One wrong step usually leads
to another, so Cain wound up murdering his little brother, simply because he would not swallow his pride when shown the error
of his way by a GOD whose tone of love could not be misunderstood. The Holy Bible has given prophecy, (in the book of Revelation),
that "Christian" America will only bring to GOD the offering of Cain. The religious leaders, like Cain, demand
salvation according to their methods, not GOD'S. And a willingness to commit murder rules their character.
Bible prophecy says this will never change. But GOD has His faithful children within this regime cloaked in the garb
of Christianity. Thousands upon thousands are steadfast to their honest service to do the LORD'S bidding:
sharing the gospel at every opportunity, healing the sick, sheltering the homeless, feeding the hungry, visiting prisoners
and elderly alike: loving all equally as Christ would love them, desiring only their blessing, never their harm, obeying GOD'S
Law as they best understand it. And GOD will lead them, teach them, and gather them to stand secure at the
coming of His Son. For this world's path is the path of suicide, and the LORD says, "Come out of her, my people,
that ye be not partakers of her sins." The Twenty-four Elders who stand at the throne of GOD in Heaven [these
are they who were raised with Jesus at His resurrection (Matt.27:52,53)] have given their prophetic utterance to their
brethren here on Earth, "And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should
be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name,
small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth." Revelation 11:8.
