It always seemed to me that the slogan ‘God Bless America’ was very arrogant.  Are we indeed demanding that God bless us, or an I misinterpreting that in some way?  How about we change it a bit and start saying ‘America Bless God’ instead?  If we bless Him, His blessing upon us will likely follow.

This arrogant attitude, and self-delusion is also seen in the assertion that we are ‘a Christian nation’.  Oh really?  Please explain your position, because I don’t see any evidence of it when I ‘inspect the fruit’ of America over the last decade or so.

We seem to believe that we are entitled to some unconditional, eternal blessing of God . . . because many of our early settlers were Christians . . . ?  We seem to have the belief that God is wedded to us, until death do us part.  Well . . . that day is fast approaching.

Scripture tells us of a nation, with a similar attitude–and of her demise in the latter days:

‘And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. . .

How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong [is] the Lord God who judgeth her.’   (Revelation 18:2-3, 7-8)

 

”Therefore hear now this, [thou that art] given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I [am], and none else beside me; I shall not sit [as] a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:  But these two [things] shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, [and] for the great abundance of thine enchantments.

For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I [am], and none else beside me.

Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, [which] thou shalt not know.’  (Isaiah 47:8-11)

 

The hoofbeats of judgment are approaching.
