Why Are Bad Things Happening In America?
Why Are Bad Things Happening To America?
Perhaps a look in the Hebrew Scriptures, and the mirror, can tell you.
"At a time when the American economy is already reeling like a drunken sailor, the United States is being hit by what seems like an endless parade of horrible disasters that threaten to push the fragile financial system over the edge. We have the massive Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that has been destroying not only the entire economy of the Gulf Coast, but also the entire way of life, health, and well-being of hundreds of thousands of people.
Add to that, Fukushima caused radiation levels skyrocketing on the west coast, a doubling of radiation levels above what is considered safe from rain and snowfall all across North America and Canada. All the Pacific seafood that has been tested, is now contaminated beyond anything considered safe for human consumption. Starfish all over the Pacific seafloor are disolving into puddles of goo. Mammals all across Alaska and the northwest have bleeding open sores visible on their bodies.
"However it is far from the only major crisis that has hit the United States recently. America is also being forced to deal with horrifying natural disasters, rapidly growing environmental nightmares and agricultural problems that could end up being absolutely unprecedented. So why do so many bad things keep happening to the United States?
Could it have anything to do with the fact that we have become global dictators, invading other countries who don't agree with or want the very problems America currently suffers from? Do we have the right to murder countless hundreds of thousands of innocent people who don't believe as we do?
Does there come a point, when the economic damage from all the wars of aggression, and man-made disasters, just becomes too much? After all, how many body blows can the "biggest economy in the world" take and still remain standing?"
That is an important question that needs to be answered. Why, you may ask? Because our physical lives may soon depend on our faith and how we live it and it could also impact our eternal future as well.
You might ask what knowledge base is this information from? It is based on the Hebrew Scriptures (known as the Old Testament or Tanakh). Note what is stated:
(Ezekiel 4:1) (DARBY) And thou, son of man, take thee a brick, and lay it before thee, and portray upon it a city, Jerusalem:
(Ezekiel 5:1-4) (DARBY) 1And thou, son of man, take thee a sharp knife; a barber's razor shalt thou take; and cause it to pass upon thy head and upon thy beard: and thou shalt take balances to weigh, and divide the [hair]. 2A third part shalt thou burn in the fire in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are fulfilled; and thou shalt take a third part, [and] smite about it with a knife; and a third part thou shalt scatter to the wind, and I will draw out a sword after them. 3And thou shalt take thereof a few in number, and bind them in thy skirts; 4and thou shalt take of these again, and cast them into the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire: from it shall a fire come forth against all the House of Israel.
It states that what happens to Judah will be a sign to Israel so what we cause to happen to them will fall back on us (the Commonwealth of Grater Israel). To understand this you need to understand who Israel is. Currently, Israel is a group of countries that developed from the thirteen tribes of Jacob who were later named Israel. These countries are America, Britain, most of her former Commonwealth countries and the Democracies going up the Western coast of Europe and this includes the tribe of Judah.
So you might ask. "What have we done that is so bad? Well for starters, if we look in the pages of the Hebrew Scriptures, we find that the main theme is about the Children of Israel, their disobedience, and how they provoked the ETERNAL by their idolatry, wickedness, arrogance, and haughtiness. In addition, we see how most of the Children of Israel (the Lost Ten Tribes) were so rebellious and wicked that the ETERNAL divorced them and dispersed them among the nations.
Most people think that the Jews are all that there is left of the ETERNAL's chosen people. If you are wondering who the Lost Ten Tribes are, well, depending on what your family heritage is you may be part of the Lost Ten Tribes. Due to the false teachings of the church in Rome most people think they are Gentiles. However, the Jews are only a one-thirteenth part of the ETERNAL's Biblical Israel, despite their insistance to the contrary.
Scripture does not state that only one race will be in the ETERNAL's Righteous Mountain, but it does state that all who are righteous will be there. See: (Isaiah 56:1-8). To be righteous, is to love the ETERNAL CREATOR just as much He loves us; to willingly and happily Honor His Sabbaths, Commandments, Laws, Ordinances, and Statutes, as any human son or daughter would want to willingly please their own flesh and blood Fathers.
In addition the morals of the American and British are in free fall and get worse daily. The nations of Israel are the only nations in the world that allow same-sex marriages. As in the days of Noah violence and crime are almost out of control. Illegal immigrants are streaming over the border, while the government unlawfully looks the other way. There are gang rapes in public places and no one even calls the police, they just stand around and watch. How very sick this country is.
This Scripture is history:
(Exekiel 20:13-14) (NKJV) 13Yet the house of Israel rebelled against Me in the wilderness; they did not walk in My statutes; they despised My judgments, 'which, if a man does, he shall live by them'; and they greatly defiled My Sabbaths. Then I said I would pour out My fury on them in the wilderness, to consume them. 14But I acted for My name's sake, that it should not be profaned before the Gentiles, in whose sight I had brought them out.
The entire House of Israel rebelled against their SOVEREIGN, polluted His Sabbaths, and did not live by His statues and judgements. Then the ETERNAL said that He would pour out His fury on them in the wilderness, but instead He listened to Moses and put off the time of His fury until the latter days. However, the ETERNAL made an oath there in the wilderness that He would scatter Israel and disperse them among the nations and later send fury.
This Scripture is prophecy:
(Ezekiel 20:21-23) (NKJV) 21Notwithstanding, the children rebelled against Me; they did not walk in My statues, and were not careful to observe My judgments, which, if a man does, he shall live by them; but they profaned My Sabbaths. Then I said I would pour out My fury on them and fulfill My anger against them in the wilderness. 22Nevertheless I withdrew My hand and acted for My name's sake, that it should not be profaned in the sight of the Gentiles, in whose sight I had brought them out. 23Also I raised My hand in an oath to those in the wilderness, that I would scatter them among the Gentiles and disperse them throughout the countries.
Why is (Ezekiel 20:21-23) prophecy and not just history as pundints claim? The text of Ezekiel speaks of Judah and Israel as separate, which indeed they are as they separated after the death of King Solomon. Therefore, when the Scripture speaks about both Judah and Israel being taken into captivity together, it could only be after 1948 when the Jews gained their own land. Since Judah and Israel have not yet been taken into captivity since 1948, therefore, this is prophecy!
So we, as the combined nation of Israel, why would the SOVEREIGN bring our nations down to the pit? Well, for starters, we do not even keep the first four of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20). He chose us to be a Holy nation of priests (Exodus 19:6), to teach His Word in all the earth. Instead we rejected Him, and chose to became an immoral nation of warmongers, harlots, sodomites, druggies, extortionists, thieves, liars, and murderers. Yes, the truth is painful, but not as painful as refusing to repent, and now knowingly continuing to disobey Him, is going to be.
Why Will Britain And America Be Punished?
The reason is plain, but you will not like the answer, as it has to do with false 'gods'. To begin with, The Mighty One Of Israel, the ETERNAL CREATOR is a single Being, One not three. Therefore, He demands that we worship Him in a monotheistic manner not the polytheistic manner such as a trinity or twinity, made of a godhead of two or more beings. And because He is only ONE BEING He only has one book, called the Hebrew Scriptures [OT or Tanakh].
(Deuteronomy 6:4-5) (NIV) 4Hear, O Israel: the ETERNAL our CREATOR, the ETERNAL is One. 5Love the ETERNAL your CREATOR with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
How many? One! Sadly, folks, we just do not believe that. We worship a false 'god', a self-proclaimed 'savior' from a different book, called the [New Testament]™. One who presumes to place himself above and before the ETERNAL CREATOR by claiming:
(John 14:6) (MULTI) 'Jesus' said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me!
The arrogance of that statement is mind-boggling in the extreme! That one sentence alone, is the pure definition of 'paganism' which simply means the worship of any deity [or 'god'] other than (Yahweh). See: (Isaiah 42:8). To believe the statements of (John 14:6), is to willfully reject the clear meaning the ETERNAL has set forth in His word, not to mention the first three of the ten commandments:
(Exodus 20:2-7) (KJV):
2I am Yahweh your CREATOR, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3You shall have no other 'gods' before Me.
4You shall not make for yourselves an idol, nor any image of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
5you shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, Yahweh your CREATOR, am a jealous CREATOR, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate Me,
6and showing loving kindness to thousands of those who love Me and keep My commandments.
7You shall not take the name of Yahweh your CREATOR in vain, for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
All religions other than the monotheistic worship of the one true and only ETERNAL CREATOR and SOVEREIGN of the universe, practice polytheistic baalism, or idolatry.
We even worship his so-called 'virgin mother'. The Catholic religion takes her worship to the ultimate extreme by claiming that she is the 'mother of god, and jesus'. We worship idols housed in temples with high steeples, symbolized by crosses, and crescent moons, religious statues and icons of all kinds, and follow the teachings of books other than the Torah [Tanakh], also called the Hebrew SCRIPTURES (OT) which were given to Moses directly by the voice of YHWH, or carved directly by the hand YHWH. These SCRIPTURES are truth. The others; not so much!
However, the Mighty One states scores of times, that HE alone, is our only Savior, and there is no other. The book of Isaiah is said to contain the most references to the Mashiach (Messiah), so we will cover two here and give further reference notes for others after. Before you get riled up, look around, America and Britain are being punished not blessed. We are in the Time of Jacob's Trouble.
(Isaiah 43:3) (KJV) For I am the ETERNAL your CREATOR the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
(Isaiah 43:11) (KJ21) I, even I, am the ETERNAL, and besides Me there is no Savior.
It is vital that you understand how important The ETERNAL CREATOR and SOVEREIGN of the universe views false idols, false 'gods', false saviors, and those who promote them, either intentionally or unintentionally. Make no mistake about it. The self-proclaimed 'son of god', met the following fate, even though much of what he said, and did, allegedly came to pass. It is also a test and a warning to see if you can be tricked into believing such a one.
(Deuteronomy 13:1-5) (KJV) 1If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, 2and the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, "Let us go after other gods" (which you have not known) "and let us serve them"; 3you shall not listen to the words of that prophet, or to that dreamer of dreams; for Yahweh your CREATOR is testing you, to know whether you love Yahweh your CREATOR with all your heart and with all your soul. 4You shall walk after Yahweh your CREATOR, fear him, keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and you shall serve him, and cling to him. 5That prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death, because he has spoken rebellion against Yahweh your CREATOR, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to draw you aside out of the way which Yahweh your CREATOR commanded you to walk in. So you shall remove the evil from among you.
And removed it was. The ETERNAL made sure of it. However it wasn't long, before before this false 'god' and all his deceptions came roaring back with a muderous vengeance.
The [New Testament]™ Gets Created By Decree!
The First Council of Nicea, was a council of Christian bishops convened in Nicaea in Bithynia (present-day Iznik in Turkey) by the Holy Roman Emperor Constantine I in AD 325. This first ecumenical council was the first effort by a Holy Roman Emperor on behalf of the state, to attain consensus in the church by decree, through an assembly representing all of Christendom. Its main accomplishments were settlement of the Christological issue of the nature of 'God' the Son and his relationship to 'God' the Father (inclusion of baalism by introducing polytheistic 'multi-godhead' worship known as trinitarianism), the relationship of the people to the state, the construction of the first part of the Creed of Nicaea, settling the calculation of the date of Easter (inclusion of paganism by outlawing passover in favor of Easter, changing the ETERNAL's Sabbath from it's Hebrew calculation to sunday), and promulgation of early canon law. Various wars ensued for control of the Holy Land, which came to be known as the Crusades. These wars lasted roughly from 1095 thru 1271, in which untold numbers of people were tortured and mudrered in the name of this false 'god', a self-proclaimed 'savior' named 'jesus'. It has been estimated that those who perished, numbered in the millions.
We Need To Get Back To The Hebrew Scriptures!
We [present day Israelites] can and must repent of worshiping 'g-ds' which the fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, did not know (i.e. a dead man [false idol], hanging on a wooden cross). Moreover, shouldn't you obey the Laws and Commandments the ETERNAL CREATOR, and SOVEREIGN of the universe has given you, the way He wants you to obey them? Willfully, cheerfully, with all your heart, and all your soul? With love and respect for all He has done, and is doing for you? Or, should you continue to obey the Church of Rome and her proselytising daughters with their so called [New Testament]™ self-proclaimed false 'god' and his lying [apostles, deciples, ministers, priests, deacons, popes, etc.], not to mention the "Self Proclaimed" Apostle Paul, with his 'baal' worshiping, polytheistic 'multi-godhead' trinitarian opinions, telling you that you have been set free from having to pay the penalty for breaking the ETERNAL's Laws, because they have been 'nailed to the cross', and that all you have to do now is believe? Really? Is that all you have to do? Think about it.
Why Will The Jewish People Be Punished?
What I have to say are hard words, they are not smooth to the ear, but please read on. For the Jewish people to have peace with their neighbors they must, as a whole, repent bitterly as their ancestor, King David did in (Psalm 51). However, you might ask, "What do the Jews have to repent of?" For starters, not only failing to nationally keep the Sabbath as the Hebrew Scriptures proclaim, but they must turn from the words of men and their tradition, Seek out the Word of the ETERNAL in the Hebrew Scriptures (Exodus 24:7), and nationally put their faith in Him. How does one do that? Obey only the ETERNAL's words from the Tanakh, especially the Torah and obey it exactly. The Tanakh is not way off somewhere (Deuteronomy 30:11-16; Isaiah 45:19; Isaiah 48:16) or so mysterious that they cannot keep it. It is plainly written and does not need interpretation or explanation, so even the average person can read it and understand it. Note: what it says is what it says and in addition, what it says is exactly what it means.
DO NOT obey the words of extra books or writings such as the Talmud, Mishnah, Koran, and the [New Testament]™ that conflict with the Hebrew Scriptures [OT]. DO NOT obey the "oral traditions" or any words of men such as rabbis, sages, fathers, bishops, pastors, ministers, popes etc., that conflict with the Torah [Tanakh], also called the Hebrew Scriptures [OT]. In addition, do not engage in the mysticism of Kabbala.
The Jews might say that they have to follow "their heritage or traditions." To see where their heritage and tradition is taking Jerusalem, check out the prophecies of (Ezekiel 4 & Ezekiel 5) and Isaiah about Judah. Their heritage is taking them, along with all of Israel, to utter destruction and desolation. One last thing, DO NOT try to reinstate sacrifices (Leviticus 17:2-9; Deuteronomy 12:13-14, Deuteronomy 16:5-6; Joshua 22:19) or try to build the third Temple as these are things the Mashiach [King David] will do after his Advent (Zechariah 6:12-13).
Please pay attention to these messages because the very near future is fearfully bleak. Always remember that we can stand on (Psalm 91); please read it.
May the ETERNAL CREATOR and SOVEREIGN of the universe, guide you, and give you peace and understanding, as you search for Him.
