Cancer Isn’t Healed With a Band-Aid and An Aspirin Tablet!

A new “stimulus” package of over ¾ of a trillion dollars is being pushed by the Obama Dynasty with the mistaken belief that it will heal the nation’s ills! --- a wide variety of news sources release detailed information on the legislation that will be passed by the U. S. Congress soon.

And the LORD said to Moses, "Go, get down! For your people whom you brought out of the land of Egypt have corrupted themselves. They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them. They have made themselves a molded calf, and worshiped it and sacrificed to it, and said, 'This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!'" And the LORD said to Moses, "I have seen this people, and indeed it is a stiff-necked people!” --- Exodus 32:7-9

Here’s the situation – you have been diagnosed with a fast spreading deadly cancer – your doctor slaps a band-aid on your arm, gives you a bottle of aspirin tablets, tells you to take 4 tablets a day and come back for a check up in a month!

Crazy? Unreal? Something that was conceived in the Twilight Zone? Sure it is! Anyone with at least 2 ounces of brain knows that.

But that is precisely what is going on in our republic at the present time as the Obama Dynasty seeks to come up with a “prescription” to heal the nation’s ills. This newly installed dynasty mistakenly believes it is the economy that needs the “fix” just as soon as possible.

The root problem, however, is moral, ethical and spiritual in nature. Until that is seriously addressed the economic calamity will abound, as will a host of others besides. It simply hasn’t dawned on elected officials (and church leaders too!) that we just may be in a period when Almighty God is beginning to reckon with the false gods we have devised out of perverted imaginations and established throughout this nation over time, including the prominent and dominant “god” of money! We are a 21st Century version of what is described in the Scripture above as God observed that those who claimed to be His people had corrupted themselves.

But heading the list of our offenses for which we are reaping a most unpleasant harvest is the “shedding of innocent blood” – you know, the intentional murders of thousands of unborn children every week of the year! President Barack Hussein Obama vigorously supports this policy, is determined to preserve and continue it and recently signed an executive order which directs that millions of our tax dollars will go to family planning groups in foreign countries that do abortions and encourage this option in the “family planning” experience!

There is a heap of repenting needed at the present time due to our massive accumulation of offenses committed against the God Who in mercy raised this republic up over 232 years ago.

Tossing out phrases such as “God bless you. And may God bless the United States of America.” are totally meaningless. Elected officials and church leaders are in the strategic position to issue a most urgent clarion call to repent of all sin and call upon God for mercy through His Son, Jesus Christ, Who alone makes forgiveness, healing and reconciliation possible!

Will it really happen? A few of us would hope so but it is not likely in light of many past lessons from history, especially as we learn details of the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah which existed centuries ago and how these related to God.

The Obama Dynasty will blindly and ignorantly insist on applying the band-aid and aspirin treatment to a terminally ill patient.

Note below how it was for a nation that found itself in the same quandary as we at the present time. Maybe the question isn’t seriously being asked yet, but it will be somewhere down the road!

"And it will be when you say, 'Why does the LORD our God do all these things to us?' then you shall answer them, 'Just as you have forsaken Me and served foreign gods in your land, so you shall serve aliens in a land that is not yours.' "Declare this in the house of Jacob and proclaim it in Judah, saying, 'Hear this now, O foolish people, without understanding, who have eyes and see not, and who have ears and hear not: do you not fear Me?' says the LORD. 'Will you not tremble at My presence, Who have placed the sand as the bound of the sea, by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass beyond it? And though its waves toss to and fro, yet they cannot prevail; though they roar, yet they cannot pass over it. But this people has a defiant and rebellious heart; they have revolted and departed. They do not say in their heart, "Let us now fear the LORD our God, Who gives rain, both the former and the latter, in its season. He reserves for us the appointed weeks of the harvest." Your iniquities have turned these things away, and your sins have withheld good things from you. 'For among My people are found wicked men; they lie in wait as one who sets snares; they set a trap; they catch men. As a cage is full of birds, so their houses are full of deceit. Therefore they have become great and grown rich. They have grown fat, they are sleek; yes, they surpass the deeds of the wicked; they do not plead the cause, the cause of the fatherless; yet they prosper, and the right of the needy they do not defend. Shall I not punish them for these things?' says the LORD. 'Shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?' "An astonishing and horrible thing has been committed in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule by their own power; and My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?” --- Jeremiah 5:19-31
