Trying to Lead Without the Blessing of God!

Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, "Now, son of man, will you judge, will you judge the bloody city? Yes, show her all her abominations! Then say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "The city sheds blood in her own midst, that her time may come; and she makes idols within herself to defile herself. You have become guilty by the blood which you have shed, and have defiled yourself with the idols which you have made. You have caused your days to draw near, and have come to the end of your years; therefore I have made you a reproach to the nations, and a mockery to all countries. Those near and those far from you will mock you as infamous and full of tumult.” --- Ezekiel 22:1-5

He’s off to bring many of the prominent nations of the world together and to convince them to work together – according to his idea of how the financial woes of the world ought to be resolved, or will he?

President Obama is totally on his own in this venture and so it is also with his administration as he and his key players attempt to govern a republic known as the United States of America.

Just a few simple things to keep in mind:

  • he and his people are totally on their own in all that they do with the main reason being that no longer is the blessing of God upon the nation.

  • rampant disobedience on the part of a majority of our population in part has contributed to the withdrawing of God’s blessing. Our mass shedding of innocent blood, idolatry, immorality, pleasure seeking, and indoctrinating our young with lies about our origins does more than stir the emotions of a holy God just a trifle!

  • B. O. is the first president to aggressively support and further expand the destruction of the unborn at all stages of development from a few weeks (embryo destruction) to a short time away from birth. 50 million dollars has just been channeled to groups that do abortions in foreign countries.

    Read again the statement from Ezekiel which is posted at the top of these comments – God made clear to a people long ago that because of their persistent disobedience the time would come when the nation would be a mockery among other peoples.

    Stop and think for a moment – some of us who are older can remember a time when the United States was not only the most powerful nation on the face of the planet, but it was respected in most all places. Wherever the stars and stripes waved there was reason to pause and give thanks for what the nation stood for and the liberties for which it was well known. It was known to be the “land of the free and the home of the brave.”

    That is no longer the case. Increased corruption within the leadership ranks, of both state and church, over the years has taken a heavy toll. Those corrupting influences have had a very negative effect on the citizens. As noted in previous postings, you can see an excellent summary as to how a culture unravels at 2 Chronicles 36, beginning with verse 11. Do some comparing and then remember that the tragedy is this -- the vast majority fail to see what has been happening and the reason behind it all!

    We are now experiencing the reality of what was stated by a prophet of long ago by the name of Ezekiel. No longer can we claim to be under the blessing of Almighty God!

    "Look, the princes of Israel: each one has used his power to shed blood in you.In you they have made light of father and mother; in your midst they have oppressed the stranger; in you they have mistreated the fatherless and the widow. You have despised My holy things and profaned My Sabbaths. In you are men who slander to cause bloodshed; in you are those who eat on the mountains; in your midst they commit lewdness. In you men uncover their fathers' nakedness; in you they violate women who are set apart during their impurity. One commits abomination with his neighbor's wife; another lewdly defiles his daughter-in-law; and another in you violates his sister, his father's daughter. In you they take bribes to shed blood; you take usury and increase; you have made profit from your neighbors by extortion, and have forgotten Me," says the Lord GOD. "Behold, therefore, I beat My fists at the dishonest profit which you have made, and at the bloodshed which has been in your midst. Can your heart endure, or can your hands remain strong, in the days when I shall deal with you? I, the LORD, have spoken, and will do it.” --- Ezekiel 22:6-14

      The Prophet said...


      "Then the Jews, as was the preparation of the Passover, so that the bodies were not on the cross on the sabbath (for that Sabbath day was very solemn) asked Pilate to break them legs, and were removed from there.
      They came as soldiers, and broke the legs of the first, and also the other who was crucified with him.
      But when they came to Jesus, as he was already dead, did not break his legs "(John 19,31-33)

      As Albert Einstein once said: "The only true problem of all time is in the heart and the thoughts of men. This is not a physical problem but a moral issue. It is easier to change the plutonium compocision that the evil spirit of an individual. It is not the explosive power of an atomic bomb, but what frightens us the power of evil in the human heart, its explosive power for evil. "
      No doubt that what the scientist says is one of the harsh realities that describe the human being, that there is an evil inclination in man.
      Many of the unhealthy actions of man originated in the laboratory of the evil mind of man, a mind that each day feeds on a terrifying idea, the darkest, most hideous that the man was able to conceive this idea is the desire to "kill God."
      Every human being has an area which makes it responsive to think of God, and this sensitive area is in Consciousness. But when the human heart is inclined to build their own roads, to set their own standards, creating an ethical and moral own or her own lifestyle, not subject to anything but the ego itself, the man faces an obstacle: the idea of God in his conscience.
      So the man decided that this idea should be removed from his mind.
      The apostle John writes about this desire of man, when focusing on the murder and martyrdom of the Lord Jesus Christ, this being done the most despicable act committed to the human race.
      In reading John 19,31-34 are 2 groups conspired together and with the intent to remove and eliminate the idea of God reflected in the person of Jesus. These groups are the Jews and Romans.
      But here also notice two things:
      1. Religiosity, as represented by the Jews, and that today may well be exemplified by all the religious leaders of all denominations living under Christian rites and ceremonies, traditions or under human schemes, under systems that are not biblical, without guide the Spirit of God. This kills the religious idea of God in man.
      2. Spiritual insensitivity, as represented by the Roman soldiers, and exemplified by all those who are disrespectful or irreverent to the sacred, the profane to the church of Christ without fear of seeing God in their hearts, breaking the rules of God, as if break the legs of Christ.
      These two things darkened conscience of man.
      However, as the apostle John writes the death of Jesus, also writes gloriously the event of his Resurrection.
      "Ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God" (John 20.17),
      with these words spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ after his resurrection, he left it that the idea of God is so great and sublime that can never disappear from the consciousness of man. So for those of evil heart this idea remains a torment to their lives, but for people whose hearts repented the idea of God is an idea of hope, joy, strength, which encourages them to await Christ's Second Coming.

      Note: take it as a blessing rather than invasion to your blog.
