America’s future, Sodom’s Past

With the recent signing of Britain’s Commonwealth Charter by Queen Elizabeth in March (2013), this will be a step toward a changing world where perversion will become an acceptable lifestyle, but equally a protective status against provocative words which would be considered “Intolerant”. This would include religious condemnation based on Christian, Biblical view.

America, like the UK, has went the same way, the difference being America, unlike Great Britain, was founded on traditional, evangelical principles. Yet, our nation, like England, is positioning itself to become a nation which will not only protect perversion (homosexuality), but under the guise of intolerance, will create laws which will protect, by force of law, to silence any point of view contrary to the current view of homosexuality.

With the most recent declaration of President Barack Obama to support gay rights, end DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) and pressure the U.S. Supreme Court to end the long held view of marriage as being between one man and one woman. America is setting itself up for the final act to its existence – judgment.

There is a grand connection between America and the great City of Sodom found in Ezekiel 16:49-50, “Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy. They were haughty and did an abomination before me. So I removed them, when I saw it.”

The Hebrew as well as Greek wording for “Abomination” is termed as something “disgusting” and we find out what that term actually means in Jude 1:7 “just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.” The terminology is earlier described in Romans 1:25-27 meaning homosexuality. Sodom’s sins, which were many, reached a level of wickedness when it gave in to the perversion of homosexuality.

America has long held to the teachings of the Bible and Christianity. It was America which, through the church by via of Democracy, enabled the Christian church to preach the gospel to the world, there has been no other nation other than America that sent more missionaries out into the world. But today, those numbers are greatly declining and now we are preaching a new ideology, an ideology of perversion. America is teaching the world to accept perversion and embrace it. That perversion is homosexuality.

What happens to a nation when it reaches such heights? What happens to any nation that forgets God? Job 8:13 gives us a clue, that nation will come to nothing. When Noah found himself surrounded by wickedness, it was due to the complete meltdown of society, which gave themselves over to corruption (Genesis chapter 6). Noah was the lone voice of righteousness in a world that went into darkness, so the remnant of those who are in Christ will be the lone voice of righteousness in the end.

So where is America heading as it comes to the conclusion of its press towards perversion? The answer is judgment. The church has failed to preach the gospel in the pulpits of America and as the church goes, so does the nation. When the body of Christ rejects holding to the standard of morality and righteousness, then God’s only other means to shake that nation up from disaster is limited judgment and, ultimately greater judgment. Because the church has silenced herself from the sins in our nation, God is beginning to reveal himself by recent events, such as strange weather events, economic woes, wars and violence, but yet we fail to listen and repent. So now the dye is being cast, the verdict is being spoken and judgment is all that is left.

America has much to give an account for, so does the church and its pastors, evangelists and prophets. America has gone the way of Sodom and what is coming is a terrible shaking and in the end, we have ourselves to blame. Britain, the UK and all of Europe will face its own challenges and sins under a world power and ultimate leader, but America has had a chance, it had the church to guide it, but it has rejected that voice of righteousness for that voice has grown silent in the era of wealth and prosperity and comfort.

Now comes the shaking.
