A Moment of Reflection On God’s Blessings and Curses
Chapter 26 of Leviticus and Chapter 28 of Deuteronomy tell us that the Lord blesses and curses nations. While that was written specifically to Israel, we can also consider that the United States was set up as a Christian Nation. We also have the evidence that God judged other nations for their sins.
If the nation listens to the voice of the Lord to observe and do all His commandments and walk in His ways, going astray neither to the left hand or to the right; and if the nation does not go after other gods to serve them, then God will give these blessings (this is not the complete list).
- You will be blessed in the cities and in the fields.
- Blessed shall be the offspring of your body and the produce of your ground
- the offspring of your beasts, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock.
- Blessed shall be the your fruit basket and mixing bowl, your storehouses shall be full.
- You will be blessed when you come in and when you go out.
- You will be blessed in all you undertake
- Your land will be abundantly fertile and productive
- The heavens will give you rain in due season in all your land
- You will be prosperous in goods in children in stock and in crops in all the land
- All nations will be afraid of you
- You will have complete victory over all your enemies
However, if the nation does NOT listen to the voice of the Lord to observe and do all His commandments and walk in His ways, and if the nation goes after other gods to serve them, there are fifteen curses for disobedience (condensed).
You will be cursed in the city and in the field. Your baskets and storehouses will be cursed. Your children and crops will be cursed. Your herds and flocks will not increase. You will be cursed when you come in and cursed when you go out. God will send these curses on you and send vexation and rebukes. You will fail in all that you do and you will be destroyed. You will quickly perish.
And if the people do not turn to the Lord, then there are thirty more curses in addition to the first fifteen. Worse curses, because at this point God will turn His back on the nation.
If the people still refuse to turn to the Lord, there are another forty-one curses that get even worse because instead of just turning His back on the nation, God will actively strive against that nation.
What are the most often cited reasons for nations being destroyed?
- Idolatry (spiritual adultery, ungratefulness)
- Adultery (physical idolatry, covetousness)
- Sexual immorality (male homosexuality)
- Child sacrifice (murder, idolatry, polluting the land with blood)
- Disobedience of the Lord’s commandments (selfishness, wickedness)
To snatch a line from Don Draper, I’m not here to tell you about Jesus. You either have him in your heart or you don’t. I can and occasionally I do share the Gospel, but that isn’t the purpose of this blog. Individuals get saved through faith in Christ and get judged by Him when the time comes. Those who don’t have their name written in the Book of Life get judged at the White Throne. There is a third judgment that Christians won’t be subject to, which is the separation of the sheep and the goats, but that’s another story.
The point is nations are judged according to their obedience to God’s Laws and the general morality of the nation according to their generation. For individuals it is given that they live, die and then receive judgment. For nations it’s a different matter because God judges nations in an ongoing process as they choose to obey or disobey Him. After showing Abraham the land of Caanan, God told him that his descendants would be enslaved and oppressed for 400 years and after that they would return and take over the land, but they had to wait. (Genesis 15:15-16)
for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet complete
There comes a point at which God will wipe out nations.
The west is currently experiencing the wrath of God.
Romans 1:18-32 is a prophesy aimed at the West in our times. There are multiple references that place this prophesy into modern times, but the point that puts this on a timeline is in verse 27, describing the male homosexuals who violated God’s Law and received the due penalty in their own bodies. The penalty for male homosexuality is death. That places this prophesy right at 1980 on the timeline with the advent of AIDS.
What was the offense that caused God to pour out His wrath on the West? “men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness”. Based on his observations in the Galapagos Islands, in 1859 Charles Darwin had a book published called “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life”. This book became the foundation of a new religion called evolution, which sought to displace God.
This theory held that instead of God creating the Heavens and the Earth and everything upon it, all life had “evolved” out of a primordial soup and God had no hand in it. That is the general theory of evolution, which is complete and utter bullshit. There is another portion of evolutionary theory that is in line with Darwin’s observations, which is the adaptation of species through natural selection over time. While natural selection is both real and provable, it was the general theory of evolution that was used to attack Christianity and God.
It’s probably wise at this point to make the observation that women achieved suffrage in 1920 and became part of the body politic. Notice that this is the point at which everything began going downhill in the West as the elected officials dealt with the change to the character of the electorate.
By 1925 the State of Tennessee had passed the Butler Act, making it illegal to teach evolution. As a publicity stunt some attorneys (the drugstore conspiracy) arranged an arrest and trial which became widely known as the Scopes Monkey Trial. This garnered a great deal of attention to the subject of evolution and the gremlins continued to toil away. A worldwide depression occurred, followed by World War II.
In the aftermath of World War II, the result of the GI Bill was a dramatic expansion of colleges and universities. Between 1945 and 1965 there was an 8-fold increase in the number of seats available in colleges. Unfortunately, good college professors are a rare breed and plenty of substandard individuals were allowed in. By the end of the 1950’s evolution was enthroned as fact and absolute morality was thrown out the window in favor of “situational ethics” or “situational morality”.
For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.
What was God’s response? The Wrath of God was poured out and He removed His restraining spirit and “gave them over”. If you turn your back on God often enough, He will turn His back on you.
Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
First came the impurity, the uncleanness that caused them to dishonor their bodies. What did the Apostle Paul say? “Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.” We need to keep a few things in mind:
- The virgin is married to the man she gives her virginity to.
- After that, sex with any other man is a case of adultery.
- Churchians pushed the doctrine that sex does NOT make you married.
- Girls are taught God forgives “premarital sex”, that virginity is worthless.
- An adultery epidemic resulted both inside and outside the church.
First there was the trauma of the depression, followed by World War II and the mobilization of women into the workforce. Women had been empowered by suffrage and now were gaining economic independence. Many did not want to return home when the war was over. There was a great deal of societal movement in the late 1940’s and the 1950’s had the Korean War, the cold war and fears about the bomb. With the manufacturing base of the rest of the world destroyed America was having a “golden age” but things were changing.
The oldest data I could find at the CDC indicated that for those first married between 1960 and 1964, 52.6% of white women were virgins at the time of their first marriage (48.3% of all women were virgins). The median age of marriage in 1960 was 20.3 years of age and this does not tell us what percentage of these girls officially married the man who got their virginity. Assuming that a good percentage of the women who were not virgins when they officially married had given their virginity to their fiance, it is not unreasonable to suppose that the percentage of white women who were legitimately married to their official husband was 60% in 1960.
Which means 40% of the “marriages” in 1960 were adulterous unions with a dress, a ceremony and a cake. Things only got worse after that. The 1960’s marked a sea-change of attitudes in the West about sexual morality specifically and morality in general as people rejected God. While “The Pill” was introduced in 1957 for women with severe menstrual disorders and then approved for contraceptive use in 1960 after so many women developed severe menstrual disorders. 1960 marks the year female hypergamy was finally set free. I don’t know who created this graph, but it speaks volumes.
What did widespread divorce produce? Broken families and children being raised in households in which their father was absent. What was one of the predictors of male homosexuality back when the APA classified it as a pathology? Being raised in a female-dominated household with no father around.
The generation given over to impurity was from 1945 to 1972. In 1972 several significant events occurred, one being the closure of the Gold window by Nixon, which destroyed the Bretton Wood accords and made the US dollar a fiat currency. Another was the fact that while the Roe v Wade decision was not handed down until the following year, Roe v Wade was decided in 1972 and Molech worship was legally enshrined in the West. Finally, given the length of time it takes for an HIV infection to progress to AIDS symptoms and death (10-15 years), the year of 1972 is about when the transmission of HIV really took off.
For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
Observe two things about that passage. It was God that gave them over to degrading passions, causing the women to exchange the “natural function” for the unnatural (that which is “against nature”). I believe the degrading passion of the women is feminism. The women rejected men as fathers and husbands in authority over them, which was the reason women were created. Woman was created from man, for man, to be used by man as a helper to accomplish his mission.
The men likewise rejected the natural function of women and rejected fatherhood and marriage in favor of male homosexuality, for which they got the due penalty in their own bodies. The penalty for male homosexuality is death and we know that 1981 was when AIDS was officially “discovered” but the HIV infections had obviously been germinating during the 1970’s. The Second generation ran from 1973 until 2001. In this generation we saw the evolution of feminism and the acceptance and promotion of homosexuality.
Did they turn back to God and repent of their evil ways? No. The stage has been set and once again God gave them over, this time to a depraved mind.
And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
It was 9/11 that marked the turning point as those with depraved minds seized power. Some 16 years later, what do we have? Look around. From pedophiles everywhere to government officials inviting foreign invaders into the country. What has pizzagate taught us? Just how pervasive the evil really is by how many people in power support and defend pedophiles.
those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them
If the generations are calculated correctly at roughly 28 years, then we are only twelve years from the end of this generation at roughly 2029.
