God Bless America. Why?

How does obeying God's law lead to blessings for our nation?

For us to see God bless America we must first understand the required conditions that must exist for blessings to be manifested. No matter what newspaper you read or what television news broadcast you watch you will find ample evidence of a world and its governments gone wrong. There is a lack of character and shame throughout our entire system of government and we as a people stand by and do nothing. It would be foolish of us think that nothing can be done to save our country from the hands of power hungry and self-centered men and women. We have a responsibility as citizens to hold our government accountable and to take it back from those we have placed in power when they have failed in their duties.

What Is The Problem?

As you review world history you will not find one government that has truly served the people.  No matter which continent you visit you will find signs that we are a world in crisis and government is the problem. From the very beginning men have been striving with each other for control and dominance.

God attempted to establish his government but man has been rejecting it for the last 6000 years. We have always struggled with God's way of ruling. "And there was also a strife among them (the disciples), which of them should be accounted the greatest. And He said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? But I am among you as he that serveth" (Luke22:24-27). Is there such a government in existence today? Sadly, no.

God's government serves those that obey God. Those who want to be leaders in God's government must be willing to serve the people. That is God's law of love being put into action. Today's leaders can be found putting themselves first at every opportunity and are therefore breaking God's law. We will not see God bless America when it's leaders are breaking his laws.

Government Structure

God's government is a family government. He is inviting us to be a part of it. If we accept his invitation then we must be prepared to obey his laws. God's government leaders serve his family just like a mom and dad should serve their family. With plenty of love. That's not to say that there is never any discipline. We should also keep in mind that mom and dad serve by example.

God's people and their leaders are going to sit with Christ at the Father's table. "Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. And I appoint unto you a kingdom , as my Father hath appointed unto me; that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel" (Luke 22:28-30). When such an environment exists where we submit to God's family government then we can expect to see God's abundant blessings. We can expect to see God bless America.

When taking part of God's family government there is an acknowledgement that must take place, that we are in a spiritually loving relationship with God. This is a position of extreme honor and responsibility. We are not to take it lightly.

We are to operate within God's government as ministers. Ministers are to conduct themselves according to God's laws at all times. If only our government leaders had this revelation along with a humble spirit how different our country would look today. As ministers of God they would also be sons of God operating within God's family government.

Unfortunately, today we see God's people rebelling against his government. Upon closer examination we see that this was foretold by the prophet Malachi, "for the priest lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts. But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi saith the Lord of hosts. Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law. Have we not all one father? hath not God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?"(Mal. 2:7-10).

Fortunately for us God treats us as a loving father would his son, looking to avoid having his son experience extreme hardship and suffering. A son who doesn't turn his back on his loving father but repents and then lives according to the wisdom of his father is spared. So too, are God's people spared when they obey God's family government.

"...what is man that thou art mindful of him? or the son o man, that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower then the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the work of thy hands: thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him" I believe that God will put the whole universe under our governmental control. Before we can take on such tremendous responsibility we must be prepared to accept correction from our loving Father and be patient through this process for only then will God bless America.

Blessings await the children of God as they are prepared for their role in God's family government. If God's family (the church) fulfills it's role as a light to the rest of our nation and the nation responds to the truth that God is revealing to them through the church then our nation still has a chance to see God bless America and be saved from the full consequences of it's sins.

can we still say with confidence god bless america?

Until America sets aside its current efforts to exclude God entirely from its daily affairs it will continue to experience the troubles we are now seeing. God must come first if we want to see God bless America. He proclaims in his word that he is all that we need and that there is no other like him.."Thus saith the LORD, the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts: I am the first, and I am the last; And beside Me there is no God." (Isaiah 44:6)

"Hearken unto Me, O Jacob, and Israel My called; I am He; I am the first, I also am the last. Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, And My right hand hath spanned the heavens." (Isaiah 48:12,13)

"Before Me there was no God formed, Neither shall there be after Me. I, even, I, am the LORD; And beside Me there is no savior." (Isaiah 43:10,11)

"I am Alpha and Omega, The first and the last." (Revelation 1:11,17, 2:8, 22:13)."

Giving God first place in every aspect of our lives will allow us to see God bless America once again. We are currently experiencing the efforts of groups that want to see God's word superceded by the gospel of man. This gospel is what some now call the gospel of sanitation; it begins with man and it's objective is to improve the old sinful nature apart from God. It's intent is to prove that man can become good without God.

Ironically, the harder we try to prove this point the more our society deteriorates and the longer we are forced to wait before we see God bless America. As we increase our effort to move away from God he counters that effort with his own to draw us back to him. First he gently calls to us and urges us to return and he typically does this over a lengthy period of time. When that fails he sends us circumstances to get our attention. Such circumstances bring about a degree of discomfort that gets our attention so that we begin to see or sense that all is not well.

What Does History Show Us?

History shows that we typically do not heed his initial call and he is thus required to take more dramatic steps to cause a turnabout in his people. It's important for us to realize that we are His and he will not allow us to fall away completely. He paid a great price to be able to call each of us his own and we will do what is necessary to get us back in line with His will. 

We need to realize that it is a good thing for us to have God consider us in this way and begin to shout, " God bless America ". God reveals to us through the writings of the prophet Jeremiah; "For I know that plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes..."

Let us all pray, God bless America, and continue to pray without ceasing. Let's once again put God back on the throne in America and see what wonderful things begin to unfold for us all.

My Recommendation for you

Rating 5 Stars - Monumental is incredible! Didn't really dawn on me that my generation (pre-1963) was the last to receive even part of the truth in education of the Puritan's plight. 

I remember at least seeing photos in our history books of people in England who fell asleep in church, in "stocks" and read of their tortures because of the Government-run church and the church as the mouthpiece for the government. Kirk does a remarkable job of telling this story. Not one single person born after 1963 should be without this. It could change a nation! Excellent, just excellent!
