Blessings and Curses: A Depraved and Sick America Has Emerged and It’s Growing Worse

Editor’s Note: Deut 28 describes the blessings and curses of a nation that forgets Almighty God. (This applied to ancient Israel and also now to present day America.) Take a moment to read through the text. You will be surprised at how America since it has no God anymore has sunk to the perils listed in the text. With God nations are blessed but once they turn their backs or ditch Him, their food supply, military, financial system and leaders take a beating, suffer and start to deteriorate. America, the UK, Russia, Iran and a host of others are in this boat and their nations are crumbling, suffering from a host of socio-economic issues. IMO, [global] war will be the outcome.

The Blessings:

“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: 2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.” -Deut 28:1-2 (KJV)

The Curses:

“But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:” -Deut 28:15 (KJV)

An Inside Look At The Social Decay That Is Eating Away At America Like An Aggressive Form Of Cancer

By Michael Snyder in Jan 2019

The character of a nation is a reflection of the character of millions of individual people, and one of the fastest ways to get a sense of the character of individual people is to visit their homes.  It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and if that is true then a home visit has got to be worth a million.  Sadly, there is a reason why so many Americans that make a living making service calls in other people’s homes absolutely hate their jobs.  Way too often they are confronted with the worst that America has to offer, and many of them end up psychologically scarred for life as a result.  For example, the following is from an article in which Lauren Hough described her time as a cable installer

I’d walk in prepared for anything. There was sobbing, man or woman, didn’t matter. There were the verbal assaults. There were physical threats. To say they were just threats undermines what it feels like to be in someone else’s home, not knowing the territory, where that hallway leads, what’s behind that door, if they have a gun, if they’ll back you into a wall and scream at you. If they’ll stop there. If they’ll call in a complaint no matter what you do. Sure, we were allowed to leave if we felt threatened. We just weren’t always sure we could. In any case, even if we canceled, someone else would always be sent to the same house later. “Irate. Repeat call.” And we’d lose the points we needed to make our numbers.

America wasn’t always like this.

Once upon a time, Americans generally treated one another with kindness, dignity and respect.

But now social decay is spreading like wildfire, and this country is rapidly becoming unrecognizable.

Just recently, a congressional report discovered that one of the largest drug companies in the entire nation had shipped “more than 3 million prescription opioids” to a single pharmacy in West Virginia…

In just 10 months, the sixth-largest company in America shipped more than 3 million prescription opioids — nearly 10,000 pills a day on average — to a single pharmacy in a Southern West Virginia town with only 400 residents, according to a congressional report released Wednesday.

McKesson Corp. supplied “massive quantities” of the painkiller hydrocodone to the now-shuttered Sav-Rite Pharmacy in Kermit, even after an employee at the company’s Ohio drug warehouse flagged the suspect pill orders in 2007, the report found. That year, McKesson — ranked 6th in the Fortune 500 — reviewed its customers, including Sav-Rite, and reported to the Drug Enforcement Administration that the purchases were “reasonable,” according to the report.

Of course West Virginia is right at the heart of the horrific opioid crisis that is sweeping the nation.  But what amazes me is that nobody at McKesson Corp. saw anything wrong with pouring millions of highly addictive pills into a very small pharmacy in a town with only 400 residents.

Out on the west coast, drug addicts are shooting up and smoking crack right in front of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals

Outside the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in downtown San Francisco, a woman urinates on the sidewalk and smokes a crack pipe.

Inside her purse are about a dozen used heroin needles. She shoots heroin up to 10 times per day, she says.

About 50 yards away, a man injects another woman in the neck with a needle. She puts her thumb in her mouth and blows on it to make her vein more visible. Her right arm is caked with dried blood.

The Ninth Circuit is the country’s largest federal appeals court, and President Trump recently nominated a radical left wing activist to fill a vacancy on it.  And right out in front of the court it literally looks like a third world cesspool.

You may be tempted to think that this is one of the worst neighborhoods in San Francisco, but the truth is that it is actually one of the best

This San Francisco neighborhood is home to the headquarters of Uber, Twitter and Salesforce. But stroll around here, and you’re also likely to find used drug paraphernalia, trash, and human excrement on the sidewalks, and people lying in various states of consciousness.

During 2018, San Francisco citizens filed more than 20,000 complaints about human feces in the streets.  There are words to describe what San Francisco has become, but I am not able to print them in this space.

We like to think that we are an “example” to the rest of the world, but the truth is that they are all laughing at us.  And I had to laugh too when I recently came across this story

A man has been arrested after he drove his pickup truck into a courthouse in Mississippi.

News outlets reported that the Gulfport Police Department said in a news release that 28-year-old Keith Cavalier told officers he intentionally crashed into the Harrison County Courthouse early Saturday because it was the best way to let them know his drug paraphernalia had been stolen.

What in the world is happening to us?

A Total Lunar Eclipse, a Super Blood Moon and a Wolf Moon To Occur Jan 20-21, 2019

Bible Prophecy Commentary: Signs in the Sun, Moon and Stars-

We don’t know what this will mean so we can only go by what Scripture tells us. Let’s take a look at just a few verses:

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:” -Gen 1:14 (KJV)

“And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves,” -Luke 21:25 (ESV)

““I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth, Blood, fire and columns of smoke. 31 “The sun will be turned into darkness And the moon into blood Before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes.” -Joel 2:30-31 (NASB)

According to the Talmud, a blood moon indicates a bad sign for the Jews. A total solar eclipse portends a bad sign for Gentile nations such as the US. All we really can do at this point is know what Scripture tells us and then watch, wait and pray.

Are you watching and praying? Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior and does He know you?

WOES IN NATURE INCREASE!

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. ”  -Luke 21:25-26 (KJV)

And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.” -Luke 21:11 (KJV)

Is Christ The Lord Number One in Your Life?

What Fills up Your Time and Your Thoughts?

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” -Deut 6:5 (ESV)

Who or what is number one in your life? Perhaps it’s your work, family, friends, car, boat, wealth, fame, status, etc. What matters most to you? If you were to review yesterday in your actions, words or deeds what would you discover? What stood out? Who stood out?

The questions above are you help you and me assess just what’s the most important and who’s the most important person or thing in our lives. Some of you reading this message today may go to church, may call yourself a Christian, may even think that you are OK in terms of your Christendom but folks where the tire hits the road, the question still remains – what captures your time every day? This then is your God. If Almighty God takes second place then He is not on the throne of your life and this is not good. 

Sure there’s well-meaning people that live a good life, say the right things, go to church, help others but if Yeshua (Jesus) is not numero-uno in your life then He takes second place and that’s not what Christ wants. Look what scripture says to every one of us:

“If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.” -Luke 14:26 (NASB)

“Cannot be His disciple” Did you get this? This translates into what it really means to be a real heaven-bound Christian. If we as “professing” Christians place anyone or anything as more important or deserving more of our attention and time including family members over Jesus Christ, then we are not Biblically born-again Christians, nor are we, in His eyes, considered His disciples and we may miss out on entering the doors of His heavenly and eternal home.

Whoa, are you kidding me? You know I’ve heard this verse a thousand times going to church but have I practiced it? Or have you? Read it friends and do the research … it’s true. If you don’t practice this then you have no place in Him. This is an absolute in terms of what Yeshua demands from our lives. We cannot compromise this or rationalize it away.

Let me bring this a little closer to home for each of us.

Distractions are huge in our lives these days, … read on…

How much time do you spend on Facebook vs. how much time you spend with Christ? How about reading your Bible outside of church. Does it ever happen … how much? How about playing video games or playing on-line games? How about watching TV or movies? Be honest … have these things taken hold in your life and Christ is pushed into the back seat?

“And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” -Luke 9:62 (KJV)

Christ says He wants all of us – 100%, not 99.9, 100% of our lives dedicated to Him, in everything we do. Is this you today? We all have to reassess our lives and see who or what sits on the throne of our lives. If it’s not the Lord and He is placed under or in back of other worldly priorities then we must sit down and pray that either we are for/with the Lord or against Him. Tough words … but true! Remember, there are positively no acceptable excuses for Christ being less than number one in your life.

“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” -Matt 22:37 (KJV)

Bottom-line: Your God/s are who and what occupies your life. You can even call yourself a Christian but rarely think about, pray, seek the Lord, witness to others or read your Bible. If things other than God fill up the time in your life then I urge you to stop and reevaluate where you are at in the Lord. Is it Almighty God you serve or the world and the Devil? The scriptures referenced above are placed in the Bible for all to read and they are not fiction, they are true and they are God’s words – living and holy words. 

Living for God is not easy especially in this day and age but if we establish Him in our hearts and lives He will abide in us. Friends, do not cling to this world or the things of this world. Cling to Yeshua, our Lord, our Savior, our God. Put Him in first place and never allow Him to slip to second or third or … place.

Where are you at today? Many I know are Facebook/social media junkies, they live by them and feed on them .. and they have become their God/s. Please think on these things reverently and carefully.
