Summary

Remembering The Former Things

In a number of visitations prior to this one, God revealed His displeasure with the Church in America. Let us refresh our memory here. It was first explained in the 'USA Prophecy' that the United States is God's contemporary client nation with a special place and destiny in God's plan of the ages. In brief, the United States has received a special assignment as God's endtime Philadelphian church 13 to oversee and guarantee open access for missionaries to propagate the glorious "…gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God" [Mark 1:1]. Being chosen of God, the USA mirrors Israel, since both were raised up to become a nation from a single man, namely, Jesus and Abraham respectively.

Genesis 12:3  And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
   
 

Genesis 12:2-3

 

 

2 And I will make of thee A Great Nation, (that nation is Israel)  and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and
in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (God's Savior of the world, Jesus Christ, came out of Israel.)

 

Genesis 17:7

 
7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
 

Genesis 22:18

 
18 And  in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
 

Genesis 35:12, 15

 
12 And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.
15 And
Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Bethel.
 

Romans 9:7

 
7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
 

 

From the above we can see that the whole world would be blessed through the bloodline of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Both the covenant Abraham cut with God was sealed with blood, and the new covenant cut between God and Jesus, Abraham's promised seed who inherits the world [Romans 4:13], was sealed in blood. Thus, Israel began with a covenant, and the United States of America began with a covenant. Foreigners who might be reading this and even some Americans may not know these things because American history has been perverted, distorted, and even denied access in some public schools today. What a travesty! For the record, however, let me again repeat [repetition is the price of learning] to anyone unfamiliar with American history, the first colony established in the New World in the New England region of the United States was Plymouth Colony in 1620. Before the pilgrims debarked from the ship to build this colony, they wrote a covenant known as the Mayflower Compact. This was an agreement between all the people aboard ship. They covenanted to serve God by propagating the gospel and by establishing a government based upon God's principles in the Bible, the two things listed as necessary in their minds to live a peaceful and fruitful life.

We the People: the Constitution of the United States

While New England's colonies were building a strong foundation for a government based upon Christian values in the north, the colonies to the south were establishing strong foundations for a Republic - a representative form of government. The two ideals were the framework from which the Constitution of the United States emerged. Hence, our nation's roots are tied to the New Covenant of the Bible. In 1643, there was a pact between all the colonies in New England to propagate the gospel. It is not difficult to see that our civil government was being fashioned solidly based upon God's Word. The Scriptures were very much a part of our nation's governmental roots. The founding fathers never intended for our government to be secularized. Having come from Europe where state religions ostracized and persecuted non-conformists, they merely did not want the government in this new land to establish a state religion. Freedom of religious expression without repression was their primary concern and indeed is guaranteed in the Constitution.

Furthermore, contrary to what most people think, the War for Independence was not fought chiefly over taxation without representation, but rather was precipitated because of deeply rooted beliefs in the sanctity of life. Slavery was the root cause, not taxes. Many colonies tried to set up laws abolishing slavery because slave-trading was the biggest money making enterprise worldwide at the time and was against Biblical precepts. We have seen that the Mosaic Law forbid commerce in the souls of men, and since the settlers were basing their culture on Christian ideals, slavery was quite abhorrent and highly controversial. King George III unwisely vetoed all colonial laws abolishing slavery and said that as long as America was a part of Great Britain, the people must allow slavery. To his shame and our glory, this precipitated many colonialists to actively seek separation from England since the Old World and the New World were 'oceans apart.' They declared independence on July 4, 1776 and you know the rest. Later on, the Constitution was worded in such a way as to guarantee that slavery would be abolished, but it took a while for this issue to be enforced.

 
A Shift In Time

We learned in the 'USA Prophecy' that God began lifting His protective covering from the United States in 1988 for reasons enumerated in the interpretation. That year was a pivotal year. Many things happened which the winds of time shook loose. Space does not permit listing them here and space rendered the list incomplete there. Some changes significantly affected our relationship with our covenanted Lord. The 1990s testify to a noticeable shift in lordships on the part of American citizenry. We saw that it was during the administration of the first President Bush that things seriously began to erode. Most importantly, there was a paradigm shift in worldview due to the breakup of the USSR. As a result of governmental realignments, shifts occurred in cultural outlooks and the world was indeed becoming a 'global village' to the consternation of nationalistic pride. In sum, to save space, and to get to the point, let me say that the god of mammon became a global giant and undermined America's morals. To the honor of our patron Father of grace, He has not yet given us over to our enemies, but the war is on, passions have peaked, and the battle for the souls of men is intense.

It was announced in the forward to the 'USA Prophecy' that God had informed Jeannette a week before the presidential election of 2000 that George Bush, Jr. would win but he would have war on his hands. We thought at the time that the word she received was referring to the war of words we witnessed in a battle of the courts. That skirmish, however, was only a prelude and a training ground for the tougher war on terrorism. The battle for the White House groomed young George to be a fearless fighter and to judge righteous judgment [John 7:24]. God wants us to know that our governmental leaders are standing in the gap for our country and staying the hand of disciplinary judgment on spiritual harlotry, greed, and immorality. The Holy Spirit is holding open the Philadelphian door for America to repent, turn back to her roots, and allow her Father to fellowship with her in public life again.
