Why America is in the Process of Controlled Demolition

 No new revelation here, it is simple: rebellion and sin.  See yesterday's post on controlled demolition.  And in spite of all the wicked corruption and degradation of every kind, America still hasn't had enough.  So, if you want to know what happens to a country when they abandon the Lord, look no further than Israel.  What happened to Israel will happen to America as well:

Isa 1

2Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth;
for the LORD has spoken:
“Childrena have I reared and brought up,
but they have rebelled against me.
3The ox knows its owner,
and the donkey its master’s crib,
but Israel does not know,
my people do not understand.”

4Ah, sinful nation,
a people laden with iniquity,
offspring of evildoers,
children who deal corruptly!
They have forsaken the LORD,

they have despised the Holy One of Israel,
they are utterly estranged.

5Why will you still be struck down?
Why will you continue to rebel?
The whole head is sick,
and the whole heart faint.
6From the sole of the foot even to the head,
there is no soundness in it,
but bruises and sores
and raw wounds;
they are not pressed out or bound up
or softened with oil.

7Your country lies desolate;
your cities are burned with fire;
in your very presence
foreigners devour your land;
it is desolate, as overthrown by foreigners.

8And the daughter of Zion is left
like a booth in a vineyard,
like a lodge in a cucumber field,
like a besieged city.

9If the LORD of hosts
had not left us a few survivors,
we should have been like Sodom,
and become like Gomorrah.

10Hear the word of the LORD,
you rulers of Sodom!
Give ear to the teachingb of our God,
you people of Gomorrah!
11“What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices?
says the LORD;
I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams
and the fat of well-fed beasts;
I do not delight in the blood of bulls,
or of lambs, or of goats.

12“When you come to appear before me,
who has required of you
this trampling of my courts?
13Bring no more vain offerings;
incense is an abomination to me.
New moon and Sabbath and the calling of convocations—
I cannot endure iniquity and solemn assembly.
14Your new moons and your appointed feasts
my soul hates;
they have become a burden to me;
I am weary of bearing them.
15When you spread out your hands,
I will hide my eyes from you;
even though you make many prayers,
I will not listen;
your hands are full of blood.
16Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean;
remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes;
cease to do evil,
17learn to do good;
seek justice,
correct oppression;
bring justice to the fatherless,
plead the widow’s cause.

18“Come now, let us reasonc together, says the LORD:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.
19If you are willing and obedient,
you shall eat the good of the land;
20but if you refuse and rebel,
you shall be eaten by the sword;
for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

The Unfaithful City

21How the faithful city
has become a whore,d
she who was full of justice!
Righteousness lodged in her,
but now murderers.
22Your silver has become dross,
your best wine mixed with water.
23Your princes are rebels
and companions of thieves.
Everyone loves a bribe
and runs after gifts.
They do not bring justice to the fatherless,
and the widow’s cause does not come to them.

We can see here ^^ Israel was still "playing church" as well.  They were going through the motions and the Lord detested all of it.  But they thought all they had to do was play church and then they had a free pass to commit all the wickedness they wanted.  Except, they were wrong.  See up there where the Lord says their cities will be burned with fire?

What else did the Lord say?

foreigners devour your land;
it is desolate, as overthrown by foreigners.

And guess what?  Nobody is going to "vote away" their problems anymore.  We have been put on notice and the Lord is front and center.  The priests and pastors need to stop the business as usual garbage they spew out in their "sermons" and get down on their knees as an example to the flock in sackcloth and ashes.  See any of them doing this?  No, so guess whats coming (more of the above).  The good news is we can dispense with the corrupt priests/pastors/"patriots"/politicians and do what we need to do without them.  After all, the problems started with us, it needs to end with us.  America did not start with corruption from the top of its head to the soles of its feet, it worked its way there incrementally by its people (just like Israel) walking away from the Lord.

The good news is here:

2 Chron 7:14

if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Notice who is not included in this ^^?  Priests/pastors/"patriots" and politicians are irrelevant here, He is calling out to "my people."  That is us.  And again, this takes no creativity whatsoever, the Lord says the cities will burn and foreigners will devour the land: check and checkmate.  2 back to back (s)tolen (s)elections should be enough evidence that voting isn't going to work.  Maybe when Joey Diapers wins his second (and who knows maybe third) term, people will wake up?  Maybe not.  In any case, the Lord has given us guidance what to do.  Do everything written in the Word and 1. focus on your talents/skills/abilities to serve the Kingdom as the Spirit of the Lord leads and 2. focus on finding your hope and joy in the Lord because you are not going to find it looking around you in this world.

Mess around and Find Out

America has messed around and now they about to find out.  Play time is over and has been over for some time.  All this business as usual garbage coming out of the pulpits needs to go straight into the trash cans and people who call themselves by His name need to get on their knees and seek His face.  The Lord told us all this was going to happen, we just did not know how much would happen in our lifetime.  We did not know, but we are finding out and thats fine because we know we were put here in this season for a reason.  We were designed to do this.  We were equipped to do this.  We can do this and we will do what we were sent here to do-Lord willing.

So, America is "finding out" what happens when you mess around.  The Word of the Lord has not changed.  Here it is:

Isa 3:10

10Tell the righteous it will be well with them,

for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds.

11Woe to the wicked!

Disaster is upon them!

They will be paid back

for what their hands have done.

So, while America is finding out we need to be about our Father's business.  He has given us guidance what to do and how to do it.  Each one of us needs to plug in to the Lord through prayer to get our instructions that will be unique to us.  Play time is over and its about to get real.  The nonsence that went on in the past that brought us to this place of "finding out" needs to be dispensed with.  Either way, the page on this book is about to turn whether we like it or not or are ready for it or not.  The Lord is doing His thing and we need to be ready for the ride.

Glory to God

Grace and peace
