America and Hatred

 

Hatred for America that pervades today’s discontented liberal culture is a matter that to my generation is for the most part mind-boggling. How an almost completely unknown, societal agitator with an ideological make-up that would champion such hatred could ever be elected president of the United States—twice—is even more mind-boggling.

That a congress that represents the electorate could sit by while such a president gives Middle East madmen, vowed to wipe out America, the wherewithal to produce nuclear weapons to do just that is…well…I can’t even give definition to my generation’s frame of mind in that regard.

America’s many contributions to the progress in improvement of the human condition throughout the world only seems to bring increased hatred to our nation. The United States has in modern times been in every instance the first with the most assistance anywhere in the world that disasters strike. Whether it’s an earthquake in Guatemala, a Tsunami in Indonesia, a famine in Ethiopia, or whatsoever the catastrophe, the U.S. has been there, never asking repayment for the help. The only exception of this generosity was in the case of some degree of repayment for expenditures to rebuild war-torn countries when economies improved there. These payments were, in most every case, eventually forgiven for the most part.

Let’s face it, if America had not gotten involved in World Wars I and II, the world would be under the control of the likes of Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin. It was America’s might and willingness to shed American blood of its youth that has given the world even the—admittedly—diminishing bit of freedom’s light that remains on the planet. Europe would still be clearing the rubble of World War II, if not for America’s vast contributions to the restoration of that devastated region.

Now, we face our own form of devastation. The American taxpayer has—without much push-back—allowed out-of-control government to spend trillions upon trillions of dollars on economy-crippling social programs—bankrupting the country. It has been an addled-brain act of politically-motivated largesse that has produced a welfare system filled with many non-job seekers who, because of anger over perceived cultural wrongs, readily join in the hate-filled rants against America.

The fallen human mind is full of envies and jealousies. It is no wonder, then, that the apex nation of world history so far as concerns material blessings should be hated. But, the animus goes far beyond mere human envies and jealousies.

And, this reality is why America, although not mentioned by name in the Bible, is a factor that plays heavily into God’s plan for His creation called man. That America was brought on the scene late in history in order to fulfill God’s purposes, there can be little doubt.

Because the Lord’s plan for humanity is opposed at every point by His greatest enemy, America’s role is, by association with that plan, a target—a major target. We can see God’s most hate-filled enemy firing his supernatural ordinance at this nation on an almost hourly basis.

Satan’s dark, spiritual firepower is directed at destroying America’s moral fiber. The national fabric is literally unraveling as each volley slams against our most basic institutions and against the Constitution God gave our founding fathers the wisdom and discernment to form.

The family is torn apart, with unwanted babies murdered in their mother’s wombs by the millions. Marriage is redefined as same-sex couplings being equal to—even superior to—heterosexual unions. Mention of Jesus Christ is becoming the equivalent of hate-speech. At the same time, Islam, whose holy book says it is acceptable, even incumbent upon Muslim men, to rape non-Muslim women—and even children—is protected and shielded by a governing system gone mad with sin-sickened, reprobate thinking.

America, I believe a study of this nation’s founding and subsequent comportment throughout most of its history will attest, has served two basic purposes in God’s great plan for humanity. First, it has served as the primary vehicle to get the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the whole world. Second, it has served as the mid-wife to bring the nation Israel into modernity, in preparation for the wind-up of human history.

For this, Satan wages an increasingly virulent war against the United States. That war will continue to intensify by the minute, I have no doubt, until Christ calls His church into Heaven. This means to the Christian that we are to stand against this great assault as directed in God’s Word.

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” (Eph 6: 10-17)

    Amen and Amen! I also sometimes wonder if God blessed America with so much, and allowed America to be the destination of all the world’s cultures, races and tongues, so that the whole world can see what happens to a nation when it rejects God. In that sense, we are a modern Babylon with our motto “e pluribus unum,” (from the many, one). America is really 2 different nations now. One is the faithful Remnant of the Lord’s, who put God first and represent the original founding father’s ideal of citizenry. And the other, which represents chaos, disorder, gimme culture, the entitlement mentality, lawlessness, rebellion and the hatred you write about. This is the Anti-Christ Spirit culture. How will America be judged by God when He separates the sheep and goat nations?

    That it is all within the sacred parameters of our sovereign God is our greatest consolation dear brother. The shout is not far off. The Hope of Glory is standing in the wings. The admonishment to ‘look up’ is fresh upon my heart this morning. Your words ring clear and will serve to alert every reader to the imminent return of our Lord and savior. Blessings in His saving name.

    Brother Terry James,
    We can take the measure of the abysmal moral state of our fallen world,
    just by watching its reaction to the actions taken by America’s and by that
    accursed country I don’t even want to utter the name.

    Even the secular press, in occurrence “TIME” the “Newsweek”-ly magazine,
    in its January 14th 1980 cover story “Moscow’s Bold Challenge” had to ask,
    in view of the bear’s claws ripping Central Asia, why is it that the world didn’t condemn the move as it would were it America on a much lesser issue.

    The answer is plain for all to see : the world is cowardly.

    Whatever your insulting of America, you are assured of no retaliation.
    If you just slight the bear, you better not be a neighbour of it.

    America is the foremost target – bar Israel – of the devil’s hatred.
    Because she is the recipient of GOD’S Blessings for spreading GOD’S WORD.

    The Magoggian bear is his foremost prize-minion.
    And recipient of his personality that fully manifested itself in the rabidly GOD-hating ideology of the same color as the dragon in Revelation xii.

    And the GOD-less world that lies in the grasp of the wicked one (I John v : 19)
    must be groveling to it.

    Alexis De Tocqueville assessment of both in his “Democracy in America”
    has never been challenged.
    ————————————————————————————–
    The recent events in Syria with the bear’s sudden move into Syria and coming dangerously close to Israel in the middle of the West’s lethargy seems to preview
    Ezekiel xxxviii-xxxix.

    It is in fact a brazenly rash attempt by the devil at jumping the gun on GOD’S Prophecy concerning Gog-Magog.

    Not the first time the devil thinks he can move one step ahead of GOD.
    One time was at Babel when he spurred his supergoon Nimrod into establishing
    a one-world government ruled by a satanic occult power (astrology, the mother
    of all witchcrafts *) that enhanced the technology of the time.

    The other time was when he prodded Herod into killing all the newborn in order
    to eliminate The Messiah.

    However, this present Syrian gambit by the gone South bear has been prophesied too in Daniel xi.
    And the bear’s premature venture as king of the North will result in a humiliating, albeit temporary, setback and retreat at the hands of the petrodollar-rich king of the South.
    In Uncle Remus folk tales, we know of how the wily Br’er Rabbit got stuck in by
    Tarbaby, set up to trap him by the crafty Br’er Fox.

    Well, the Syrian dictator is now playing Tarpit-Baby to allies and enemies alike,
    by sucking them into his bottomless quagmire, the Magoggian bear being the last
    to get stuck.

    And all of them on both sides are avowed enemies of Israel !

    Trust GOD To Let the wicked take care of the wicked.
