This is my first article writing on my new blog as “The Watchman Report.” Typically with new media ventures, it’s a “get to know you” type of article. However, we will have to dispense with the pleasantries, because time is of the essence and this needs to be discussed now. That of course is, that America is on the precipice of reaching the point of no return.
What point of no return am I referring to you may ask? It is very simple. America has reached the point of being unable to change her course from colliding with the judgment of God. You may thinking that, “Come on! Everyone has the chance to repent of their sins and turn it around.” The answer of course is that yes, everyone does have that opportunity. However, there is nothing in the Bible that says that we can forever sin away as a nation and not face the judgment of God.
While everyone is going on and on about Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, and open season being declared on our law enforcement officials, one thing seems to be getting pushed further and further to the back pages of the American news press. That issue is the nuclear deal with Iran that President Obama is dead set on having the United States agree to with these other nations. This agreement, in every way possible, is against Israel and the US seems to be the head cheerleader of it.
Iran has time and time again chanted, “Death to Israel” and has called for the Jews to, “be wiped off the map.” Their language is pretty clear in their hatred of the Jewish state and yet, our country invested the last two plus years of taxpayer time and effort negotiating with these madmen. Our own intelligence agencies confirm what other countries intelligence agencies know about Iran’s involvement with Hezbollah, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad. They support, arm and bankroll them. All three which have one mission in mind: Kill Jews.
Even as this agreement was being hammered out, Iran was still chanting, “Death to Israel”, and at the same time, “Death to the United States.” Also, they were continuing to enrich uranium at levels that would be banned under the agreement. In short, they have not showed an ounce of good faith at all to work towards peace. On the contrary, they have thumbed their noses at the countries of the world, all the while lying out of their mouths that they will agree to inspections of their nuclear facilities, and then after having signed the agreement, we find out they have 30 days to prepare for an inspection. Iran is making America and the world look like fools.
Prior to all of this, President Barack Obama has treated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the worst way possible. From suggesting that Israel return to pre-1967 borders, and now this Iran deal, relations between the USA and Israel are at levels that I never thought I would ever see. I would never have imagined when Obama took office in 2008 that we would treat the Israelis like this. But what was his first press conference as President of the United States? It was an interview with a muslim TV station, and then a Middle East apology tour to America’s and most definitely, Israel’s mortals enemies. That set the tone to where we are now. Also in 2014 it has been widely reported that Obama threatened to shoot down any Israeli fighter jets that would attack Iran. However the President has denied ever saying such a thing. (Yes, totally believe the President on this one.)
Where we are at as a nation is that now Congress is set to vote on rejecting this agreement. The President promises to veto it, and as of this week, has secured enough votes to prevent any type of override. Some may call me political when I say this, but not surprising, all of the people siding with Obama on this are 100% Democrats. Only two Democrats so far have broken ranks with the President, and while I do not trust Chuck Schumer or Bob Menedez on anything, because they are liberals, at least they have the sense to see that this deal is a deal with the devil himself. (Oh no! A Conservative just praised a liberal and the heavens shake!)
However, people still think that America is “ok” and that “we are the greatest nation on God’s green Earth” as I heard one radio host say. There is a sense that America, despite this agreement, is going to continue on being a blessed country. Nothing could be further from the truth. On the contrary the Bible is quite clear on this. Genesis 12:3 says “I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” The message here is quite clear. Those who bless the nation of Israel will themselves be blessed. Those who curse her, that is to say, side against Israel, they will be cursed themselves.
Isaiah 60:12 – “For the nation or kingdom that won’t serve you will perish; yes, those nations will be utterly destroyed.”
These are verses that clearly state that a nation that curses Israel is going to themselves face the judgment of God. What we are doing with this Iran deal is the final nail in the coffin in opposition to God’s chosen people. If this agreement passes, and it seems that it will, America will be on full opposition towards the Jews. America will have brought the cursing of the Jews to a full circle. The racial tensions in this country, the war against the police, the meltdown going on in the financial markets, these are all warning signs telling us to turn back to God and to His Commandments. Our nation has embraced sin and then we act all surprised when we hear horrible stories like Planned Parenthood selling baby body parts, or seeing gay marriage as the law of the land.
The only way for America to reverse course right now is to turn back to God and turn away from sin. Only an America united in repentance can reverse the course that we are on as a nation. However, it seems that there is no indication of any sort of repentance. When we jail someone because of their Christian faith for refusing to condone the sin of gay marriage, but we allow politicians who have clearly violated the law to run free, where is our heart as a nation? It’s certainly not with God, and the Bible is the guide to tell us this because Christ said, “You will know them by their fruits.” If this nation passes this Iran deal, we will have arrived at the point of no return. The Bible clearly tells us that people who continue to sin will be “turned over to their lusts.” This means that God will give this nation over to its sins and that will be the final sign of a society in decay.
I wish that I could say something different than what I have, but this is what God has laid on my heart. We are at the point of no return as a nation because of our opposition to God’s law. I have been praying for America, the land that I love to repent and I ask that you do as well. Only prayer will see this nation delivered.
