John Adams On The Fall Of America

All the guns in the world, similar to the most seductive politics on earth, cannot fix a broken spiritual problem.

    He’s oh so close; I believe and pray that God is leading him over that line. He states that perhaps a tyranny is the only way to govern a wicked and idolatrous generation such as ours. But he’s still missing judgement. There are plenty of ways for men to govern themselves but curses for wicked and idolatrous generations are God’s way of judgement. Specifically, again, God has most often used the sword, pestilence, famine, and plagues as His tools.

    And I go a step further, by reading the Law and the Profits to conclude that making war on tyrannical government for especially, but not limited to, the 70 million dead babies, is not only just, but it is advised as the form of full repentance unto Holy God to return us to His blessings.

    Not fully developed, but by way of outline here is a sample of applicability, and we can talk about Romans 13 as well some time.

    Want to know why whites have such a low birthrate? Abortion! The consequences are national Judgement.

    The principle at Law, before the 10 commandments of Law was even given:
    Genesis 9:6 “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.”

    If you kill a bunch of babies, God will bring the sword against you, No?

    The Law:
    Exodus 20:30 and Deuteronomy 5:17
    “Thou shalt not kill.”

    In the case of abortion, this is the(an) applicable Law of God and the consequences for violation:
    “And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name. And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not: Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.”

    A case in the profits whereby the Judgement of God fell upon the people for sacrificing children, and the consequences, which are wrath:
    Jeremiah 32:35-36 “And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin. And now therefore thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning this city, whereof ye say, It shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence;”

    Jesus Christ confirms the Sixth Commandment (“thou shalt not kill”). Very importantly, He confirms both the Law and the cases in the books of the Profits where it is evident and Judgement is brought, as evidence against that generation. This is our Lord’s summation of the Law of God, it is not some new commandment, it is the same 10 commandments and related many sub-commandments in summary:
    Matthew 22:35-40 “Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

    To them that are faithful in little much is given, to the unjust goes punishment. The same principle of Law and the consequences for failure are reiterated by Christ usually by way of parable but in some instances directly:
    Luke 16:10 “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.”
    Matt 25:29-30: “For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    Want more babies? Stop killing the ones that you are blessed with. Simple.

    Vengeance belongs to the Lord…and (but) retribution, under, sufficient witnesses, for the violation of God’s law, belongs to the people in obedience of God’s holy ordinance or they are no people of God’s at all and will then be thusly judged by God out of the Law. If you thought that God no longer does(did) this you are flat wrong.

    Another example out of the Profits. (ooh, calling Revelation an historical book of the Profits should send some heads spinning. Heh!)
    Revelation 3:19
    “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”

    Count it all joy that God loves us enough to destroy our nation and then, you can begin to work with God to repent, which does not mean some meley mouthed sorrowful prayer, although it should start with prayer, but repent means to stop what you are doing that is against the Law of God, that He might not destroy you out of the land. And if your countrymen won’t stop they must be made to stop it; and I’m convinced by the totality of Scripture that God would bless such an effort. Are 70 million babies to be rendered unto Cesar? Are they Cesar’s children or Gods? How does it love God and them to allow their destruction? Defense of life is an imperative of Holy God.

    The commandments, as reiterated are in a specific order on purpose. Are you to love your neighbor more than God? Heaven forbid. Justice, the taking of those lives, where applicable, that, unjustly take life is the right application of the Law, and when governments of men, ordained of God, won’t do it, then the people must make it to be, and if we would, again, I know that God would bless those efforts, the amount of actual necessary violence to achieve such an aim would be drastically narrowed or judgement shortened, I pray.

    There is at least on instance where the people repented, by which I mean they took action to rid themselves of abominable haters of God’s Law, but God punished them anyway, needfully for their benefit. Which means that it might be too late, but the effort would have its own reward, if that by God’s will even one just man in God’s eyes were to be found.

    To anyone who would tell me that the 10 commandments have be repealed by the advent of Christ, well, I didn’t get that memo, and neither did God Almighty! The only Laws repealed are those of sacrifice and in ceremony of sacrifice; as Christ has made the final sacrifice, once for all. Do you believe?

    And I won’t go all into, again, the Pauline doctrine re-iterating who is worthy of death. Apparently that made some Christians upset to know that they have failed to uphold God’s Law and are thus, now and although born again into His Kingdom, none the less are they guilty of treason against God for which His punishment is enroute (me included here), or the Holy Bible is a lie! You can guess where I stand on that.

    What many American Christians admit is that judgement is first upon them and that as a nation we may have brought it (it is and we did), but they won’t admit that they have a say, that by taking just action, against the unjust within God’s Law, is allowable, even desired under the Law.

    Throwing off such chains of those who would hate God is not some philosophical quip by a founding generation, it’s God Word. Waiting and praying for justice from devils who are in unholy collusion with satan is evidence of brainwashing, and further evidence that American Christians may love Christ the servant but indeed they do hate Christ the Lord.

    And I’m probably in trouble again for stating all this out loud but I’ve done nothing but explain what God’s Holy Word says. If any man or organizations of men hate me for stating it; they hate God. Government can prosecute, enslave, imprison, kill, even crucify and bulldoze into trenches those who would tell the truth of God’s word, but none of that would change the facts at hand, that you guilty before God throne both here temporally, and before His throne of final judgement. But admittedly, judgement is first upon the House of God for these sins.

    Everybody loves the meek little baby Jesus and this time of year especially, but told that God’s Law is perfect, they become confused, even defiant, believers and unbelievers alike. It is the failure of God’s men that has brought(is bringing) the ruin of Western Civilization.
