Today is the 345th day of this year.
We The People . . .
Do We Understand What Is Really Good for US – USA?
The Word of God has something to tell us about this . . .
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? I the LORD search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.” -Jeremiah 17:7-10 ESV Study Bible.
Do We Know What Is Good for US?
“If anyone imagines that he knows something, he does not yet know as he ought to know. But if anyone loves God, he is known by God.” -1 Corinthians 8:2, 3. ESV.
Do We the People Really Know and Understand and Believe What IS Really and Eternally Good for US – USA?
-Not the flesh
-Not the god of this world.
True God is good for US
And if WE don’t believe in true God
Then WE must believe in something else . . .
Even if WE claim that WE don’t believe anything – or don’t believe in anything — WE are deceived if WE don’t believe in true God.
If you believe in yourself – you are deceived.
“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’
They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good.
“The LORD looks down from heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God.
“They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt; there is none who does good, not even one.
“Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers who eat up my people as they eat bread and do not call upon the LORD?
“There they are in great terror, for God is with the generation of the righteous.
“You would shame the plans of the poor, but the LORD is his refuge.
“Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.” -Psalm 14:1-7 ESV Study Bible.
Do We Know What Is Good for Our Country?
True God Is Good for Our Country
True God instituted government
Unbelievers instituted politics
In the Bible book named Galatians we are given a list of “the works of the flesh” so that true believers may understand what WE ought not to do. It’s in chapter 5. Some of these works of the flesh are readily recognized in politics – works such as fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions and envy – to name a few of them – there are 15 in all.
And secular politics works for the unbelievers – not for True God-Instituted Government; and not for the people – but for Money – for the rich and powerful unbelievers – for the wolves in sheep’s clothing – for the ungodly and corrupt corporate state of Babylon the great prostitute that is under the influence of the god of this world that lies in wickedness. And that’s why our government is 31 trillion dollars in debt – while the rich and powerful corporations are overflowing with multi-billions of dollars in their treasuries. Secular politics serves not the best interests of the Country nor the people nor their government.
“Secularism n. 1. Religious skepticism or indifference. 2. The view that religious considerations should be excluded from civil affairs or public education.” -The American Heritage College Dictionary -Fourth Edition.
If you believe in abortion, then you are deceived by the god of this world. The Son of God identified the god of this world as the devil, the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning. [See The Gospel According to John, Chapter 8 ESV]. Abortion is murder. And those who believe in abortion use lies to support it – two character traits if the god of this world: murder and lies. They are of their father the devil – and as their father does, so do they. And those who are devoted to and write and pass laws primarily for the sake of financial gain are guilty of idolatry – the love of Money is idolatry. [See 1 Timothy 6 ESV]. And the love of money, we are told in the Scriptures, is a root of all kinds of evil. And today, the whole world is filled with increasing evil – even institutionalized evil – by way of legalizing it. And all this evil on a global scale is reaching a crescendo called the great tribulation by which true God is bringing to an end forever the corrupt corporate global state of Babylon the great harlot.

“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.” -Titus 2:11-15 ESV Study Bible.
The Titanic – Symbol of the World System That Is Passing Away – Forever
The World Is Not Passing Away
Only the world system, corrupted by secular politics, is passing away.
True God Is REALLY GOOD for you –
If you really believe in Him and take Him as your own personal Lord and Savior.
And let His Holy Spirit live in your heart
And be Sovereign on the throne of your heart.
He is the Author of Life
There is no one better than Him to be our Master
Psalms 24 and 25
By believing in the gospel and doing it – believing on The Son of God Jesus Christ – WE receive a broken spirit and a contrite heart – which are necessary for godly repentance and a sincere faith in the gospel of Christ and genuine belief and trust in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” -Psalm 51:17 ESV Study Bible.
Pride is a sin; those who are proud will not enter His gates.
GOD’S WAY OF SALVATION (JOHN 3:16)
True God instituted government; however, secular politics has perverted government to serve the rich and powerful. And this perversion of government has brought great inequity and pollution and immorality and poverty all over the earth. All living things are suffering now; and there is much violence and death – including death of thousands of species of living creatures.
People who vote on election day are deceived. They are not doing a good thing by giving a mandate to secular politicians to continue to serve the corrupt ways that favor Money and the rich and the powerful. Rather, God’s Word tells us:
“Do not love the world or the things of the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world – the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions – is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.” -1 John 2:15-17 ESV Study Bible.
“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, ‘I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.” -2 Corinthians 6:14-18 ESV Study Bible.
2 Peter 3
The wrath of God has been simmering like Mount St. Helens in Washington State for a very long time – and The Time is coming when S/HE will explode in The Great Tribulation over all the Earth. And Babylon the Great harlot shall be gone forever – and all the unbelieving wicked will be gone with Her – never to afflict God’s Earth and His People ever again. The new heavens and the new earth will blossom like a Rose in great beauty and in True God’s Glory. And the regeneration of all things in Christ’s Glory WILL BE Glorious.
“Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away. But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But, as it is written,
“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
Nor the heart of man imagined,
What God has prepared for those who love him” –
These things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.” -1 Corinthians 2:6-10 ESV Study Bible.

“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay everyone for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” -Revelation 22:12, 13. ESV.
