Is God angry?
God called on the nation of Israel to be holy. This was not just an individual responsibility but the requirement of the whole community, and it was achieved by obedience to God’s law. His law defines good and evil and right and wrong, and those who violated the commandments were called to repentance through chastisement or were removed from society by death. This is how a nation is kept holy. However, a society that fails to “be holy” by failing to remove resident evil becomes an unholy nation filled with every imaginable corruption. Certainly, the corrupted becomes an unstoppable plague within society, and upon gaining control of the nation’s public institutions, it will use public authority to accelerate the licentiousness of the nation. When will such a nation come under the full wrath of God? When the children are morally corrupted and encouraged into every kind of perversion, this is the end game, for there is nothing left to be saved by God’s grace (Gen.18:23-32). Sodom, Gomorrah, and Pompeii are a warning to America; corrupt your kids and fire will pour down, but if not fire, then like Canaan, destruction will come by foreign invasion, or if the not by foreign invasion, then like Egypt, by plagues and pestilences. How much time does America have? America’s public education is working diligently at corrupting American children with the sin of Sodom, working at removing God’s mercy. The hour glass is near empty, and the only way to stop the impending wrath of God is to be united as one in restoring God’s law thereby bringing our nation back to holiness.
Homophobia is God’s spirit warning the soul to stay away from a transgression that ensures the destruction of the soul. Those who encourage the sin of homosexuality encourage the spirit of rebellion of God’s natural order. The spirit of homosexuality is deadly not only to the individual but also to society. It was this spirit that caused the destruction of Sodom, Gomorrah, and Pompeii by the wrath of God. The destruction of these cities are a warning to the nations, and judging by the aggressive political drive of the nations to cast out God in order to secularize their public policies, thereby encouraging the violation of God’s order, we can expect the fate of theses same nations to suffer the penalty by fire and brimstone.
Samuel Bryan “ The state of society must be very corrupt and base indeed, when the people in possessing of such a monitor as the press, can be induced to exchange the heaven born blessing of liberty for the galling change of despotism.” dc 77
Jesus said in Matthew 12:43-45, “When an unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he passes through waterless places, seeking rest, and doesn’t find it. Then he says, ‘I will return into my house from which I came out,’ and when he has come back, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes, and takes with himself seven other spirits more evil than he is, and they enter in and dwell there. The last state of that man becomes worse than the first. Even so will it be also to this evil generation.”
Jesus is describing a political and cultural problem, and a nation heading toward destruction. When the foundation of the nation, the people, become corrupt their corruption flows into every public and private edifice including civil government, so when the righteous attempt to remove one evil spirit seven more evil spirits appear to make matters worse. Rome suffered this problem when they assassinated the usurper Caesar only to find Augustus taking his place, and after Augustus came Tiberius, and after Tiberius came Claudius and so on. The source of government corruption in America finds its source from the American people themselves. They have failed at keeping the fountain of sovereign power that flows out from the people purified by good laws. They have allowed themselves to become an impure fountain filled with every kind of adultery, vice, and lust. What good can come our of such corrupted fountain? Only evil spirits, corrupted individuals, and factious political parties . The current moral decline of America like that of Rome before will cause a certain collapse of America’s free republic into a vicious military dictatorship; current political auguries are already prophesying such an events. Unless Americans quickly restore the purity of the fountain by laws that purify the fountain of public authority, Americans will find life, liberty and liberty at an end. See Article VIII – A constitutional amendment making God’s law American law.
He writes, “So is God angry? Response: First we need ask, is in it the character of God to get angry? Exodus 35.6 says, “Yahweh! Yahweh, a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness and truth.” So according to Scripture, God can get angry. What causes God to get angry? Idolatry is one cause. Exodus 32.9 is God’s reaction to Israel’s idolatry, “Yahweh said to Moses, “I have seen these people, and behold, they are a stiff-necked people. Now therefore leave me alone, that my wrath may burn hot against them, and that I may consume them…” In1799, George Buchanan in “The Rights of the Crown in Scotland” writes, “God, who is equally the father of all, from whose eye nothing can be hid, and whose power nothing can resist, will leave no crime unpunished.” Based on this testimony, the human community has problem. It has a God that does not stand idle as the human race corrupts itself according to His standard. Jesus faced this problem of national corruption with Israel when he said in Matthew 12.39 “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, but no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet.” Jonah was the prophet the went to Nineveh to call it to repent its moral corruption before God destroyed it. Nineveh repented but Israel failed to heed the words of Jesus and Rome became a rod of judgment against Israel, and Rome destroyed Jerusalem burning down its temple. So is God angry with America? Today, we have governments, state and federal, actively corrupting the nation in the name of civil liberty and equal rights repugnant to moral law. We have a public education system that is working at teaching the right of alternative lifestyles (homosexuality, lesbianism, an transsexualism) beginning in kindergarten. Moreover, America has a blinded and disabled citizenry who are unable to stop the national push into licentiousness. In America today, we can apply Jesus’ words, “An evil and adulterous generation.” Again, when the children are actively corrupted, God’s grace has now where to flow and the entire nation – for there is no innocent person in such a community – will be punished for its crimes.
He writes: Sodom and Gomorrah is a warning to America… why the limited focus on America only? Response: I live in America and I am speaking to Americans. However, Psalms. 2:2-3 says, “The kings of the earth take a stand, and the rulers take counsel together, against Yahweh, and against his Anointed, saying, “Let’s break their bonds apart, and cast their cords from us.” Today, we see an international movement to discard God’s moral law. The nations are working toward international rights of abortion, prostitution, alternative lifestyles… So the warning of Sodom and Gomorrah applies to them as well.
Work of Providence
Before the American Revolutionary war, the American colonies were in despair because for the first time they experienced the unexpected; their once faithful mother country England with its fertile history of liberty began forsaking just principles and acting upon principles of tyranny. But American leadership at that time understood the workings of Providence, which is the hand of God upon the nations, and they followed its course with right and moral action and the outcome was the American Union. Today, we are seeing the same rise of tyranny but globally. America, which had boasted of the rectitude according to the “Supreme Judge of the world,” is now part of a larger revolt against common sense and divine law ( See Psalm 2 – nations breaking chains of God’s law,) but like our founding fathers, we should view current events as the working of Providence for the end of international injustice by the rise of a Kingdom in the spirit of Christian liberty.
Exodus 23:28 “I will send the hornet before you, which will drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before you.
News Post 2013 “Authorities in northern China are struggling to control a spate of attacks by aggressive hornets that has now killed 42 people and injured at least 1,640.”
Note: America’s Declaration of Independence expresses immutable principles not just for the American Union but for every nation. Government is instituted to secure the inalienable rights of every man and if government fails to secure such rights then the people have the right to alter or abolish the government, but this right is not just for the people. God has the right of divine judgment and chastisement, the rod, to disciple or displace a nation of violations of God given rights.
