America: Why are we Shunning our Messengers and Blocking our Ears?


 
Current Affairs,Christianity,Advice
When nations are in decline they all tend to follow the same path. They place their hope in a new leader who says all the right things and in a desperate attempt to clean up the mess the citizens have made, he or she is placed on the top of the rubble and expected to lead us out of the shambles.

Mao promised that he would give China what the old dynasties could never produce; they got communism.

Mussolini promised Italians a return to the glory of Rome; they got subservience to Germany followed by humiliating defeat.

Hitler promised a renewed and “Great Germany” that would rule nations for thousand years; They got a world that bound itself together at the cost of millions of lives to crush her ambitions in less than a decade which left her destroyed, divided and stuck with a legacy of shame.

Then along comes America with her deep plunge into perversity and immorality, scoffing at her founding fathers and ignoring her roots in Scripture, and her very own Constitution. The answer to all this is, yet another leader (Donald Trump) who promises more “greatness.”

The exceptional nation is about to prove it is just like all the nations before it – that is not so exceptional after all.

History can be kind - but it is not today

In one of the most unusual passages of the Bible which contains the history of the first 30 years of the Church, one of the first deacons becomes the first martyr of the church. It was a cruel death, but it is what sparked the mob to kill the young deacon Stephen that stands out.

Being dragged before the rulers for a charge of sedition he began his defense with the glowing history of the nation of Israel and her dealings with God. They ate it up, and some were considering letting him go because it is exactly what they wanted to hear.

Verse after verse of Stephen’s lengthy diatribe is recorded and it looks like all is going to be just fine. But when Stephen brings up Jesus and says that they are the ones who rejected, denied and crucified the very Lord of Glory that God had sent them – they flipped.

Oddly, they did not just kill him, but they took precautions not to hear any more of his words by the childish, but typical behavior of the rebellious – they stopped up their ears!

“Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.” (Acts 7: 57-58)

America is seeing a resurgence of voices that are calling us to repentance and renewal. Our penchant for everything prurient and sleazy is condemned and a real call to righteousness is going forth like a mighty river. How are we responding to these messengers?

We are following those before us who “stopped up their ears” and while we haven’t yet begun killing the messengers, we are persecuting them with renewed fervor and applied a force of indifference to their messages.

The media chases political frontrunners hanging on their every word like salvation itself was contained in their promises. The clarion call to what is right is relegated to the backwaters of the media where tweeters and bloggers can cast hate, doubt and drown out the essentials of a message in a sea of personal opinions, nasty attitudes and four letter expletives.

Blocking our ears has become an art in America.

States, judges, celebrities and presidential candidates do not decide what is moral

The late David Wilkerson predicted many years ago that America would approach the last days by replacing the authority of scripture, constitution and families with the authority of judges, politicians and activist groups. That prediction has risen to the fore and the list is amazing.

The same judicial body that gave us the right to murder our own off spring (Roe) has now greenlighted perversion in marriage (Obergefell) – we can only imagine what may be next.

The clamoring electorate has recently put forth their favorite in the race to the White House by declaring that he (Trump) is a non-politician, an outsider who will fix everything. And yet only recently he announced that men in women’s bathrooms - was hunky-dory.

When the axe of public opinion came down on his unadvised statement he did what is now commonly called “walking it back.” He said, it would all fall to the states to decide. The non-politician used one of the most common political tricks in the history of our nation known as – “passing the buck.” Nothing to see here folks - just another politician hiding in the twisted nonsense of his own personal ambitions and political rhetoric.

Celebrities and corporations have jumped on the progressive bandwagon to disengage or boycott states like North Carolina because of their refusal to let the slippery sleaze slither into their state.

Before the controversy subsides the headlines are already coming in on the result of this planned horror show. Stay tuned - headlines like this, “IT’S BEGUN: Man Goes Into Women’s Bathroom And Commits Horrific Act To 10-Year-Old Girl” are a promise of worse things to come.

Pop prophets offer diagnoses – Real prophets offer prognoses

On average the fulfillment of the prophecies in the Old Testament took about forty years to happen. The rule is general, but recurrent enough that we can pretty much rest assured; America’s modern prophetic voices will also be right on time.

If we do not turn, repent, re-consider and change the present course we are on our nation is facing its own unceremonious fall into the heap of past glories.

My own God given utterance is coming into the home stretch for its fulfillment. Nothing will shake America out of its fascination with sleaze faster than a sudden, deep and thorough disconnect from its wealth. It is rounding the corner and the economic crash will touch every man woman and child in this nation.

As one said recently we will be changing lines very soon. We will not be standing in a line at Starbucks waiting for our expensive fancy lattes, but we will have moved over to the line where a piece of bread and a bowl of soup is offered to fend of the withering effects of poverty and hunger.

Pop culture prophets are calling for more “greatness” for America; it is the diagnoses of fools.

The diagnoses and the prognoses for this nation are dire.

“And now also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.” (Mt 3: 10)
