Is America Destined to Serve Tyranny?

 

 

A nation of sinners is bound to serve tyranny.Democracy on the other hand is the blessing of righteousness and the fear of the LORD.

 

The operation of democracy depends on voluntary good conduct.Consider that the following description of godly character is attributed to be in compliance with any good law:

 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.(Gal 5:22-23)

 

The rationalizations of the natural man lead contrary to such a requirement.

 

Spiritually, all men are under supernatural influence.Angels and demons contend to influence men.Angels can only assist with those who qualify for Godís help, and demons influence the rest.If you do not belong to God, you fall under the influence of satanís kingdom by default.Satan, being the original megalomaniac, will certainly arrange your enslavement.

 

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.(Mt 6:24a)

 

Consider early Israel.Before they asked for a king, they lived free without any sort of rule.As long as the fear of God was in their hearts, their good behavior allowed the functioning of an excellent democracy.Whenever they lost their regard for God, they began to do whatever was right in their own eyes.

 

In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes. (Jdg 17:6)

 

Their decline eventually put them in bondage to some kind of tyrant.This hardship would drive them back to God, who would send a deliverer to restore their democracy.Throughout the book of Judges, they repeated this cycle many times to prove this principle.

 

America began in the fear of the LORD and founded the democracy that such would allow.Consider that the founding fathers declared their democratic intent in the context of respect for their Creator:

 

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness

 

Now, after years of insidious[1] erosion of public morals, we find our democracy has been stolen from us, also insidiously.(see Power Rules)Much of the church has been ransacked as well.What is a surprise to most is not such to those who have long revered the LORD.

 

It may seem that we must act to restore our democracy.But unless the kingdom of God is restored in America by some kind of awakening that restores the fear of the LORD, any political solution undertaken may not work.Also too, the time is short, seeing as we have passed many signposts signifying the general beginning of end times in recent years.

 

It is repeatedly said in Judges:

 

And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD.

 

Let all of America do as the LORD has said:

 

If so be they will hearken, and turn every man from his evil way, that I may repent me of the evil, which I purpose to do unto them because of the evil of their doings. (Jer 26:3)[2]
