“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were
thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was
darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the
glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and
to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.”
Romans 1:20-23. These days there
seems to be a barrage of questions concerning when will God judge America. We
can find a plethora of commentaries focused on this same question. Little do
most of these questioners realize it but God sent His judgment upon this nation
many decades ago, which began our spiraling downward freefall into the abyss of
America, but many other nations as well have been judged by God and found
wanting. Billy Graham quipped many years ago “If God doesn’t judge America He’ll
have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” If you’re waiting for an atomic bomb
blast aimed at destroying America in one fell swoop you’ll probably need to wait
until America completely turns its back on Israel; God’s word says that every
nation will turn against Israel in the last days. Now I’m not saying an atomic
war won’t break out; as a matter of fact I’m certain it will happen one day with
a few hundred or even thousand atomic bombs hitting the amber waves of grain.
But the current judgment that God placed on America and all other nations of the
world which have turned their collective backs on Him has not come in the form
of an atomic bomb. When it’s all said and done many may wish it had.
national movement is taking America by storm? And for that matter, what
international movement is doing
likewise? If you haven’t already guessed it’s the condoning and the almost
overwhelming promotion of the abomination known as homosexuality. Not very many
Christians realize that this once hidden “in the closet” filth which is now
permeating our world is God’s judgment on all societies that have rejected Him.
How do I know? The Bible tells me so. Keep reading.
Societies are now moving in the direction of “God gave them over to.” I’ll
explain that statement shortly. But why has God done this? People know He
exists, yet they refuse to acknowledge Him as God and do not give Him the glory
He deserves as our Creator. Our God is a jealous God; we may cringe at the fact,
even dislike the idea, that our God has the propensity of being jealous. But the
fact remains He won’t share or give up His Godhead to anyone or anything.
chapter of Paul’s letter to the Romans is directed at the pagan world. Paul
gives an extensive explanation on just how foolish these people are.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven
against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed
it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are
clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal
power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
According to God’s Word He holds everyone accountable to know He exists and to
seek Him. He does this through the obviousness of His creation. But these pagans
Paul addresses here ignore the truth and worship idols made of things which were
created instead of the One who is the Creator of all things. Therefore God gives
them something special, something only these folks would cling to and bask in.
Unbeknownst to them God’s judgment is on them and society as a whole because
society has gone over to the enemy’s camp. God gives such societies over to be
filled with lust as they too condone such behavior.
“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own
hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:”
Romans 1:24. The Greek word for
the phrase “gave them up” is paradidōmi
and it actually means: to give them up to evil desires. Who gave them up? God.
Why? Because they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made
like to corruptible man. They should know God exits through His Creation, yet
they ignore the fact that God has revealed Himself, even His eternal Godhead, so
they have no excuse for their refusal to glorify Him as God. In the above verse,
the Greek word for “uncleanness” is
akatharsia and it means: to give them up to impurity, lustful living.
The Greek word for lust is epithymia
which means to: desire, crave, long for. God has given these pagans up to a
lifestyle they can’t resist, and they think this lifestyle is one they’ve chosen
for themselves. The phrase “dishonour their own bodies between themselves” has
the Greek word atimazō embedded
in it which means: to treat with contempt, whether in word, deed or thought.
“Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and
worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for
ever. Amen.” Romans 1:25.
So the societies which refuse to honor God as Creator and Lord are, as they turn
their backs on Him and worship the created thing, being judged - including
case you’re wondering what the dictionary uses as an explanation for the word
pagan here it is “an offensive term that deliberately insults somebody who does
not acknowledge the God of the Bible, Torah, or Koran”. Actually no one should
recognize the god of the Koran. At any rate, the word pagan fits those who
reject God, and offensive as it might sound God’s judgment is much worse.
“For this cause God gave them up unto vile
affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is
against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman,
burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is
unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was
meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave
them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”
Romans 1:26-28. Here we see it
again – God giving these foolish pagan people up, this time to a reprobate mind.
In the Greek the word reprobate is adokimos
and it refers to something that should be cast away as unfit as in something we
would reject or throw out. God is in control here and He will not put up with
whole societies turning their backs on Him.
ever wondered why homosexuality has flourished in America and has become the
norm in what was once thought of as a mostly Christian society? Today, even many
professing Christians see no harm in homosexuality nor do they regard
homosexuality as a sin. “More than 100 ordained Christian ministers have signed
the proclamation, including leaders from Lutheran, Episcopalian, United Church
of Christ, United Methodist, and Presbyterian churches which states
homosexuality is not a sin.” Source: Onenewsnow.com. These pastors, as well as
most of their congregations, don’t just look the other way but actually condone
this abominable lifestyle. There are many professing Christians that see this
sinful lifestyle as nothing more than two people of the same sex loving each
other. I wonder just how many people actually understand how homosexuals, when
it comes to the act of sexual intercourse, actually go about it. Not to be too
graphic here, but it would probably make most people especially Christians sick
if they actually understood what was involved when these depraved minds speak of
loving or making love with one another, and if it doesn’t – shame on them.
don’t misunderstand God’s motives as He judges whole societies by giving them
over to a reprobate mind. God loves everyone equally. He is no respecter of men.
We were all born with the sin nature in us, it’s hereditary. We are all sons of
Adam thus we all inherit the sin gene. Therefore the propensity for all humans
to become homosexual is no different as far as sinning goes as stealing, lying,
murder, adultery, and so on. It’s all sin and we usually embrace one or more of
them until we become a “son of God.” Only then are we given the ability to say
no to sin, because sin no longer reigns in our lives. But until we became born
again we were all slaves to sin. Those who reject God cannot resist sin; they
have no way to fight a battle against sin, and as a matter of fact they don’t
even recognize their actions as sin.
judgment on societies is different than the individual committing a sin. There
are many born again Christians who live in countries where homosexuality has
already been greatly manifested. So Christians are seeing the results of God’s
judgment first hand. God’s judgment on America and the other nations that have
turned against Him will become even more steeped in this abomination. This
judgment will wax worse and worse as time goes by, especially as the opposition
to the whole homosexual agenda wanes. “More than 50 percent of the current
American voting public now have no problem with this spreading phenomenon,
homosexuality.” Source: The Barna Research Group
see it openly in our military and the president of the United States has now
made it known that he will no longer allow the Attorney General of the United
States to fight for the Constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act. There
are now six states which have passed laws that allow homosexuals to get married
and many more are working on the legislation to do the same. And now we see
California, the leader in the promotion of homosexuality, passing laws that
demand that homosexuality and its history be taught in schools, and setting up
homosexuals as role models for impressionable children. I wonder if the lesson
God gave us concerning Sodom and Gomorrah is going to be a part of that history
taught in public schools. Openly homosexual judges are now running our court
systems and homosexuality is permeating our land. Need I go on?
“Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness,
maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil
things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without
natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that
they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but
have pleasure in them that do them.”
God gave them
(these God rejecting pagan people) over to all the above mentioned adjectives
because He will not be ignored nor will He be humiliated by foolish people who
want to replace Him with some inanimate object as the focus of their worship.
The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is our Creator God. It’s a slap in His face
to believe in anything contrary to that truth. Therefore since so many Americans
enjoy slapping the face of God, God has been forced to act by judging America.
words again from Romans chapter 1 verses 29 thru 32 and then think about all the
evil in the news of late. “This know also,
that in the last days perilous times shall come.”
2 Timothy 3:1. The Greek word for
chalepos which actually means: hard
to bear, troublesome, dangerous, (harsh, fierce, savage). Savage? Are we not
living in savage times? Mothers killing their children, fathers killing their
families, mass murders occurring all over this country and around the world –
sounds pretty savage to me.
As we are
all aware, the teaching of the fact that we have a Creator God who we are all
accountable to has in recent years become a forbidden subject in our government
run, completely secular public school system. We know God is not pleased with
the American people’s decision to eliminate Him from their consciences.
Therefore we are paying a heavy price for this disobedience in the form of
rampant homosexuality. Don’t look for it to end any time soon. As long as we
stay the path we’ve chosen the judgment will continue and it will increase in
its intensity – like birth pangs on a pregnant woman. If you are a Christian
reading this commentary all I can say is beware of more evil coming. You might
want to learn to pray the following prayer
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14. God is not
speaking to the pagans but to His people. His children need to turn from our
wicked ways, repent, to become doers of His word and put away the apathy and
ignorance that has infiltrated His Church.
next time someone asks you if or when you think God will judge America you can
tell them America has been under judgment since we took the Bible out of our
public schools and replaced it with the most horrible of lies - evolution. This
extremely pervasive lie is completely satanic from its inception. Yet the vast
majority of humanity, including many professing Christians, accepts it as truth
over God’s word.
years now, worldwide, we’ve been killing the unborn babies in the womb at the
rate of approximately 50 million per year, how then can God not judge the
nations who’ve committed such atrocities and turned their backs on Him and His
blessings? All children are a blessing from God. How can He just simply ignore
this attitude of hate towards Him? Judgment has come to those nations who’ve
found it necessary to embrace evil and eschew good, with America being a major
promoter of evil around the world.
judgment has come in the form of giving the foolish people who hate Him over to
their own lusts. They don’t see it of course, but God’s judgment has befallen
America as well as every other nation on earth who all dance to the same tune –
they are without a doubt followers of Satan.
