“But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: ‘Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. –Matthew 12:25
First off in understanding the significance of this spiritual error “America’s Foundational Demise” is to accept the truth and simplicity that there is a cosmic battle between Jesus (creator) versus Satan (created)…. and Hollywood doesn’t invent this reality! The Story of Good and Evil
The “Founding Forefathers” had historical insight; however, evidently they did not understand how to contain the evil. Only Jesus deals with the root problem sin.
“The framers of the Constitution firmly believed in government under law. They wanted to protect the country from tyranny in any form. They believed that a misguided majority might be as dangerous to good government under law as a privileged minority or a power mad dictator.” -Rise of the American Nation, HBJ; (Retired Otter Valley Union High School Book, Brandon, Vermont
The following is the main gate/door/entrance by which America’s demise was made certain!
Article VI, paragraph 3, U.S. Constitution: “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
To the contrary: Scriptures clearly and imperatively declare: ““BELOVED, do not put faith in every spirit, but prove (test) the spirits to discover whether they proceed from God; for many false prophets have gone forth into the world. By this you may know (perceive and recognize) the Spirit of God: every spirit which acknowledges and confesses [the fact] that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, [actually] has become man and has come in the flesh is of God- has God for its source. And every spirit which does not acknowledge and confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh [but would annul, destroy, sever, disunite Him] is not of God- does not proceed from Him. This [non-confession] is the [spirit] of antichrist, [of] which you heard that it was coming, and now it is already in the world. Little children, you are of God- you belong to Him- and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world” –1 John 4:1-4 Amplified Version
The U.S. Constitution is an imperfect writ (legal document ) devised of man; on the other hand, The Scriptures declare:
“The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant , giving light to the eyes. The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the Lord are all together righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.” -Psalm 19:7-11
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” -Hosea 4:6
“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.” -Colossians 2:8
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand by and be devoted to the one and despise and be against the other.” -Matthew 6:24a Amplified Version
“In the battle between forces of good and evil (emphasis added) on this planet, no one can be neutral, you want to take sides.” -Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations; Ode Mag.
Evidence of the spiritual battle (03-5-12): “We have already lost our rights to do at least half of the things on that list as well as many others, to some extent! What is going on here? Simply this: Power-hungry government officials – backed by people with hidden agendas – have convinced us to sacrifice our freedoms bit by bit, always in the name of some supposedly noble cause (usually something to do with protecting us from some imaginary or greatly exaggerated danger). And with every change they gain a little more power; a little more control.” -Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association
“All of the dictatorships glorified force. Compelling the people to work for ‘bullets rather than butter,’ they converted their industries to war production. Their major efforts were devoted to building powerful military machines.” -Rise of the American Nation, HBJ; 1982
“Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience… without God there is a coarsening of the society.” -Young America’s Foundation
“I don’t want to reflect on my fellow politicians, but if every politician that ever lied was incapable of holding of service, I’m not too sure of how many we’d have left.” -James Jefford, Vermont (USA) Representative [career politician]; quote taken after a press conference; Burlington Free Press (year 2000)
America’s survival is to return to the Living God, Christ Jesus for:
It is written: “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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. -2 Chronicles 7:14
“So kill (deaden, deprive of power) the evil desire lurking in your members- those animal impulses and all that is earthly in you that is employed in sin: sexual vice, impurity, sensual appetites, unholy desires, and greed and covetousness, for that is idolatry [the deifying of self and other created things instead of God]. It is on account of these [very sins] that the [holy] anger of God is ever coming upon (those who are obstinately opposed to the divine will) the sons of disobedience, … -Colossians 3:5,6 Amplified Bible
