Will God Bless America?

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. (Psalm 33:12)

Our goal has been to provide solid Biblical teachings, with a focus on End Time events. The result has been a world-wide ministry of sowing the Good News and winning the lost for Christ.

Today we are lead to encourage Christians in the United States of America and throughout the world to pray for this nation.

Only through prayer will we prosper in the difficult times ahead:


12 signs America is on the decline / Fortune, July 20, 2015

America is declining, in large and important measures, yet policymakers aren’t paying attention. So argues a new academic paper, pulling together previously published data.

Consider this:

  • America’s child poverty levels are worse than in any developed country anywhere, including Greece, devastated by a euro crisis, and eastern European nations such as Poland, Lithuania and Estonia.
  • Median adult wealth in the US ($39,000) is 27th globally, putting it behind Cyprus, Taiwan, and Ireland. Even when “life satisfaction” is measured, America ranks #12, behind Israel, Sweden and Australia.
  • Overall, America’s per capita wealth, health and education measures are mediocre for a highly industrialized nation.
  • Well-being metrics, perceptions of corruption, quality and cost of basic services, are sliding, too.
  • Healthcare and education spending are funding bloated administrations even while human outcomes sink, the authors say.

“We looked at very broad measures, and at individual measures, too,” said co-author Hershey H. Friedman, a business professor at Brooklyn College – City University of New York. The most dangerous sign they saw: rising income and wealth inequality, which slow growth and can spark instability, the authors say.

Will the ‘Age of America’ end in 2016? / CNN, April 26, 2011

Is the “Age of America” drawing to a close? According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), its demise as the leading economic power is five years away and the next president of the United States will preside over an economy that plays second fiddle to China’s.
The lender posted data on its World Economic Outlook that puts 2016 as Year Zero for China as the world’s dominant economic power — the year when China’s growth trajectory intersects the decline of the U.S.’s share of world gross domestic product in terms of purchasing price parity.

7 Signs of a U.S. Economic Collapse in 2016 / Profit Confidential, June 24, 2016

A U.S. economic collapse in 2016? Is it possible that the world’s biggest economy will face its biggest challenge next year? While most talking heads on Wall Street think the U.S. is heading in the right direction, the fact of the matter is, there are more than enough indicators to suggest the U.S. economy will come under serious pressure in 2016.
The U.S. economy is rock solid! Or so the commission-dependent brokers, analysts, and fund managers will tell you. They would have told you the same thing back in 2007 and 2008… just before the Great Recession and the stock market crash.

But then reality set in. Only a few months later, the world was on the verge of economic collapse. Despite the warning signs, we’re hearing the same kind of misguided optimism today. The pillars supporting the U.S. economy are more fragile than they were before the Great Recession.

Despite being in the midst of a so-called recovery, the global economy is still appears to be in a recession, American workers aren’t benefitting from the long-in-the-tooth bull market, underemployment remains high, inflation is much higher than the U.S. government’s official tally, a third of Americans have no emergency savings, and most worry more about their finances than anything else.

This is all after trillions of dollars and years of meddling from the Federal Reserve and other central banks around the world. As a result, the U.S. could experience an economic collapse in 2016.

Why are all of these plagues being unleashed upon this country, which not long ago was a beacon of hope to the world? To our shame, the United States of America embraced the globalist agenda over the fundamental Christian values that made us leader among nations.

Today our country is a hollow shell of the Founding Father’s vision. Divinely endowed natural rights for all citizens are now defined as arbitrary and subordinate to a contrived specter of an imaginary world community – governed by the few – so the many can serve those who set the rules.

The fact is that since the Federal Reserve was created in 1913, the U.S. dollar has declined in value by more than 95 percent and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 5,000 times larger.

How far we have fallen from the vision that formed this country:

But, it is not too late! Our nation has always turned to the Lord:

“O eternal and everlasting God, I presume to present myself this morning before thy Divine majesty, beseeching thee to accept of my humble and hearty thanks, that it hath pleased they great goodness to keep and preserve me the night past from all the dangers poor mortals are subject to, and has given me sweet and pleasant sleep, whereby I find my body refreshed and comforted for performing the duties of this day, in which I beseech thee to defend me from all perils of body and soul.

Direct my thoughts, words and work, and wash away my sins in the immaculate blood of the lamb, and purge my heart by thy holy spirit from the dross of my natural corruption, that I may with more freedom of mind and liberty of will serve thee, the everlasting God, in righteousness and holiness this day and all the days of my life.”

George Washington (1732-1799), from his prayer journal

The Scriptures are clear that civil government is an institution and process that God the Creator has given to mankind. The Constitution provides “We the People” with a representative body of government. Where are the people called to intercede on behalf of their neighbors, especially those in authority?

Please join us in prayer so that God can bless America!

 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:1-4)  
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. (Psalm 33:12)

      Why I totally disagree that we should pray for America is because then we would be praying Against God’s Will instead of With God. America is totally corrupt and has turned it’s back on God. So has most of the rest of the world. Therefore, judgment is coming. Let’s face it, the end times have to come eventually don’t they? I believe we are on the verge of entering into the Tribulation and are now at the 3rd horseman. So, it’s too late. Instead we should tell as many people as possible that the end is near and they should turn back to God or face the judgment. If they will even listen anymore. See this:

      every nation that has broken covenant with God has been judged. The judgments are severe.

      God has sent warnings or harbingers of judgement. Evangelist Jonathan Cahn has written about this. Here is a short list:

      1. the whole 9-11 disaster
      2. Wildfires with whole counties burning to ashes
      3. Drought in the west, floods in the east
      4. Flooding in places that have never flooded before
      5. out of place hurricanes like Sandy
      6. economic distress where young people can’t find jobs
      7. manufacturing activities, companies, and jobs moving to China and the BRICs countries
      8. viruses, plagues, diseases that can’t be cured
      9. Endless wars in Afganistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya causing unpayable debt
      10. Riots by so called “open minded liberals” who hate Donald Trump and his right to run for office
      11. Incompetent, loud-mouthed, clueless, and corrupt candidates running for high office (’nuff said)….why can’t a country with 330 million people in it produce better candidates?
      12. The Supreme Court passing laws…there decisions are so far removed from the actual writings of the constitution that it amounts to passing their own laws….strange, since the constitution says that congress gets to pass the laws…remember that history tells us that the strange laws that corrupted Sodom & Gommorah were passed by corrupt judges…
      13. The Presidents (both Dems & Republicans) abusing their executive order authority to pass laws…once again, only congress passes the laws..the president’s executive action powers are limited to the military and foreign policy (with advice & consent of the senate)

      • Big dog.../small fish...

        You really believe that??

        • jknbt

          yes, or I wouldn’t have said it…

          the problem is that the warnings are ignored because people have the idea that Almighty God is an old bearded man in his dotage gently rocking away on a rocker on his front porch, saying, “There, there, boys will be boys, and the girls will be girls”….

          They don’t take the warnings seriously, because few people these days believe that God actually has moral standards and is the final judge of men and nations. They don’t believe in a God who judges sin. God hasn’t changed. The only thing greater than the love of God is the holiness of God. He does not tolerate sin indefinitely. He does give space to repent.

          Whenever a severe warning or judgement takes place, people will pray and go to church, but the root behavior never changes. Superficial repentance = no repentance

          A harbinger warning took place in Canada this year. A whole city burned. The people got out, but the city burned.
