Let me tell you a secret, the secret of America’s success. We have experienced more freedom and prosperity than any other nation. This did not happen by chance, and we didn’t do it on our own. God has blessed us more than any other nation on earth. Because we are his people, and America was founded on his word, he has done exactly what he said he would, through Moses:
And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
The Lord shall establish thee a holy people unto himself, as he hat sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways. And all the people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee.
And the Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers to give thee. 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 tis day, to observe and to do them. Deuteronomy 28:1-13.
Then, the scripture describe all the curses that would overtake us if we turned away from God. The curses are the exact opposite of the blessings: That we would be cursed in the city and cursed in the field. That we would be the tail and not the head. That we would not lend but borrow.
Now, we are seeing that prophecy of the scripture being fulfilled. The United States is broke and in debt. Our cities are cursed along with our fields, and none of our enemies are afraid of us.
These things are happening to us because, as a nation, we have turned away from God. We are not showing any respect for him, or even acknowledging his existence. We are certainly not keeping his commandments. That prevents God from blessing us.
But it’s not too late. We can still repent of our sins and return to God. He says in his word that if we will humble ourselves and pray, and seek his face, and turn from our wicked ways, he will heal our land. This is what you can do to help turn our nation back to God:
Study the Bible. Learn what God requires of you and do exactly what he says. Teach your children to do the same.
If you are new to the Bible, I suggest that you read The Bible Believer’s Handbook. It is a summary of all of this information.
