PROBLEMS WITH THE U.S. ECONOMY AND IMMIGRATION SYSTEM
Looking at America’s debt from a Biblical view is quite sobering. Deuteronomy 28 lays out both blessings and curses upon the nation. Blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience. As the nation falls away and becomes apostate the nation will face many calamities.
The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail. Deuteronomy 28.43-44
This is exactly the place we are in with our national debt of over $21 trillion dollars. This only represents the debt we owe the nations. Three trillion is owed to China alone. When we count social security and other welfare programs I’ve seen figures higher than $250 trillion. This is a staggering amount of debt that will never be paid off—EVER!
To give you an idea of how much a trillion is: If we counted backwards a trillion seconds we would go back to the year 30,000 B.C.! If we look at “money” compared with height, a million dollars would be 4 inches high stacked—a trillion dollars would be 63 miles high! https://ihtd.org/festivalguide/resources/how-much-is-a-trillion-dollars/
The other amazing fact above in Deuteronomy is how the stranger within us will get up above us. This is exactly what is happening in America today. Read Deuteronomy 28 and Leviticus 26 and you will understand what is coming.
In the Bible, Israel made provision for the stranger but the stranger had to love the country and accept the God of Israel in order to immigrate. If they did so, they were considered to be a full citizen and were only then accepted a member of a tribe. Examples of this are found in the book of Ruth and Ezekiel 47.22-23.
Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to YHWH, to serve him, and to love the name of YHWH, to be His servants, every one that keeps the Sabbath from polluting it, and takes hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon my altar; for mine House shall be called the House of prayer for all people. YHWH Elohim which gathers the out casts of Israel says; Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him” (Isaiah 56:3-8).
They did not allow criminals, enemies, and ungodly people immigrate. They had controls. There is nothing wrong with controlling immigration and weeding out the criminals. We are a nation of immigrants but if you allow criminals and enemies within your gates you are in trouble.
Our country is going through a period of lawlessness and apostasy. The prayers of God’s people are holding off the judgment that is surely coming. At some point our economy and the US dollar with crash and our faith in Yahweh will be tested as a people and a nation.
Our politicians are only interested in pandering to special interest groups and enriching themselves by “giving stuff away.” We all know this. Our entire system is being judged. The only way it can be reformed is for it to crash. What kind of reform will we see?
Will it be righteous reform or will the unjust and wicked prevail? It is very difficult for me to be optimistic about what is coming. It may shake out alright in the end but getting there is going to be hell.
As believers we should be concerned with getting our houses in order. We should not be going into debt to buy stuff. If you are living beyond your means now is the time to get a handle on your finances. Live within your means and pay off as much debt as possible. Get your spiritual life in order. Get to know the Father. Read the word and study it. In a time of crises the assemblies that know the word will have great influence on the population.
There are too many false teachings and prosperity assemblies out there. They are not preparing people for difficult times but are enriching themselves through their teachings. Find a place built on a rock!
The nation is heading for a fall. We do not wish it to come but it must. We have turned from God as a nation and as a Father He must chastise us. It is coming. Now is the time to prepare and get right physically and spiritually. If we are sincere we can to that.
You know it is coming. If you are tuned into the Father you know it in your spirit. Take action before it all comes tumbling down. Prepare. We, as God’s people, will come together in extraordinary ways in time of crises. We will surprise ourselves if we are prepared. We will be tried like gold and the Lord will be glorified and uplifted before the nation.
Below are some articles on the state of the economy. From here on we are going to have a wild ride on the stock markets, the dollar will go down in value, goods and services are going to rise—inflation, and lawlessness will increase as the economy begins to shake.
