Being an American is equivalent to winning the lottery.

Five Roots

“Ye shall not make with me Gods of silver,
Neither ye make unto you Gods of gold.”
Exodus 20:23.

There is confusion among the citizens of the United States. This is how the perplexity arises. The two words that brings this on are “Government” and “Country”. These two are as different as a monkey and a horse. Trying to describe either one presents the problem. Unless you are able to define a word or a phase, it should not be used.

A horse feels it must walk on the earth but a monkey spends much of its life leaping from tree to tree. There could be many other differences and shown words have different meanings.

We should be very careful when we use certain words. The government is different than the country. The two are not synonymous. A country exists for a long period of time – while a government can change in a matter of minutes.

This actually happens every four years when one party, either the Republican’s or the Democrat’s challenge one another. The new President is then sworn into office. There can be a change in who the President is.

 

This happened in Israel after the death of Solomon. Rehoboam tried to keep the status quo – but could not. A Nation was split within three days.

 

I Kings 12:16, tells the end of the division.

“So, when all Israel saw that the King
Hearkened not unto them,
The people answered the King, saying,
“What portion have we in David,
Neither have we inheritance
In the son of Jesse: to your tents,

O Israel: now we see to thine own house, David.
So, Israel departed unto their tents.”

Solomon at first built a nation, which then, resulted in a government. The United States did not become a country or a nation until the United States Constitution was adopted. There are some that would state that the United States did not become a nation or country until the Civil War was over. Until that time, we were a group of people that had fought the British and won our independence.

There are strong reasons why the United States even exists as a country or nation. We have valid and basic core values that allow the nation to be what it is today. It might be disturbing when you read them.

 


First,
in the beginning, the people who came to North America – they came to work. It was not to search out gold, silver, and slaves. To the contrary, work was a motivating mindset that, Europe held and the inhabitants suppressed.

Look around your environment and see what great workers we are. An entire continent has been transformed!

 


Second,
the Protestant Influence has been a guiding force in making this nation. There has been such a force among us to please the Lord, God that the attributes of worship were among the people in a very powerful manner. This biblical idea comes from the Bible. Moses taught this in Deuteronomy 31:6, which is one place of several where the idea is placed.

“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor
be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God,
He is that doth go with thee;
He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”


Third,
there exists a matter that few groups have experienced. The United States has a written document which cannot be changed by a whim. Statutes, regulations and rules are often modified by groups which become vested in a particular idea. This becomes a way of life.

The United States did not put this concept in place. What is written can only be changed under very difficult circumstances. It is not easy to thwart the exact meaning of the Constitution.

Some Nations have Oral Constitutions. We do not. If a matter is left to the whims of men – then it will be removed every couple of years.

 

The Framers of the Constitution knew this. In fact, never trust men to do what is right. Moses said in Deuteronomy 12:18-19, the law would be read.

“But thou must eat them before the Lord thy God
in the place which the Lord thy God shall choose, thou, and thy son and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant,
and the Levite that is within thy gates:
and thou shalt rejoice before the Lord in all that thou puttest thine hands unto.”

“Take Heed to thyself that thou forsake not the Levite as long as thou livest upon the earth.”

Jesus knew the law and discussed it. He knew the written word, Luke 4:4, showed us this.

“And Jesus answered him, saying, it is written,
That man shall not live by bread alone,
But by every word of God.”


Fourth,
the United States Constitution sets out that citizens are never to trust the government. This has been given to us in the first Ten Amendments. Governments are NOT capable of telling the truth!

Some people might suggest that the Constitution plus the amendments do not affect us. Frankly, only a fool would even make a remark like this.

There is no doubt that our Constitution keeps evil away from us. All one would need to do is examine countries and the governments of Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. These are countries which are near or touching our borders.

When you hear or read about someone who wants to change our Constitution, you should understand that the person is either a fool or person who desires a Dictatorship.

Obama was such a person, and it appeared by his actions and words that he hated the United States. Obama and his actions fell into this category. The Electoral College saved, “We the People” from the evil that is Hillary Clinton. As far as I am concerned, this woman is without a doubt one of the most depraved people in this nation.

One factor each one of us must never forget is that our nation is a Constitutional Republic. The country is not a democracy, a dictatorship, or a conglomeration of people. Never forget we are a Republic with a written Constitution. We should stay away from a one-man rule. Samuel in I Samuel 8:6,7, had a serious conversation with God.

“But the thing displeased Samuel,
When they said,
Give us a king to judge us.
And Samuel prayed unto the Lord.”

Being an American is equivalent to winning the lottery.

Be careful what you live under.


Fifth,
it’s the economic system we work in. It has a name and some call it Capitalism. However, I refer to it as an economically-free system. At this time, the so called “Intellectuals'” rant and rave against our economic and free system. The basic idea of it is that each one of us should have the right and be able to determine our own financial future.

 

When this happens, we will see enormous wealth that comes to people. Great fortuneswill be brought about. Yes, there will be abuse by those who become greedy and corrupt. You should look around and you’ll see that when men are turned loose to think, to invent and to collect wealth – that all men will prosper.

 

There will be problems that come up. These can be controlled if the laws are followed. Those who criticize the economic freedom are generally supported by others, the government or some institution that gives them a vested interest when money is given to them.

 

To keep to the basic idea we must read what the scripture reports as to how the financial methods are adopted.

 

 

Moses led the Children of Israel in preparation to enter the Promised Land. These children of Jacob were given food for 40 years. Then, as soon as they arrived in the Promised Land no more was given away. Joshua 5:12, tells us what happened.

“And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land. Neither had the Children of Israel manna anymore; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.”

 

From that time forward each had to use what was before them to feed themselves and to become prosperous. This is what God intended. We are to determine our own destiny.

 

Next we should look at what Jesus instructed his followers. Christ often used illustrations of men who worked and acquired wealth. Matthew 13;24, is one place he spoke about wealth.

“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good deed in his field.”

 

The new testament tells us in Acts 18:3, what Paul did.

“And because he was of the same craft,
He abode with them,
and wrought for by their occupation,
They were Tentmakers.”

 

Yes, there were several economic methods but none is superior to what the Bible sets out. In fact, there is no other method which can compare to it.

 

SINCE 1945

If we look at the Cold War, then a different conclusion will be drawn. From a military view yes, the West had won. But from a teaching position we may have lost. In the area of teaching, we are behind. The most recent example is that – now, the Democratic Party has embraced socialism as it’s mantra.

 

TROUBLE In The FUTURE

In 1991, the Soviet Union fell and Communism – supposedly fell along with it. Yes, in today’s world this is accepted by some people. The truth is that it isn’t so. Socialism and Communism are alive and well in the United States. All a person must do is listen to the talk of some of the people who are being taunted by the print, video, and Internet. These are the voices of the following:

  • Bernie Sanders
  • Maxine Waters
  • Nancy Pelosi
  • MSNBC
  • CNN
  • Governor “Moonbeam” Brown
  • Mayor DeBlasio of NYC
  • Democratic Party.

Never forget that Nazi Germany under Hitler, was a Socialist government. Under Stalin and Lenin, the Soviet Union was a socialist government. In the United States, anyone who is a Socialist always believes in the following:

  1. Will kill to rid those who think differently.
  2. Control of ALL economic areas.
  3. Tax more and more.
  4. Always lower the standards for everything.
  5. Food supply is less and less .

 

The lowlifes’ who spew this doctrine do not know history.

 

CONCLUSION

  • Remember the five concepts.
  • The Government is not the same as the Country.
  • Never accept Socialism.
  • Learn what the Bible says about the problem.

God bless our Republic.

KEEP THE FAITH!

 

GOD BLESS AMERICA

“God, bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her,
And guide her
Through the night with a light from above.

From the mountains
To the prairies
To the oceans white with foam,
God, bless America,
My home, sweet home.

God bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her
And guide her
Through the night with a light from above.

From the mountains,
To the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam.

God bless America
My house sweet house
God bless America….
My home sweet home!”

** God Bless America” – Written by Irving Berlin in 1918 and Revised in 1938.
