I will destroy you. Then you will know that I am the LORD. —Ezekiel 25:7

 The wicked borrows but does not pay back, but the righteous is generous and gives. —Psalm 37:21

             Powerful city states and nations have been judged by our Lord and are no more. We in the United States had better understand that we too cannot withstand the judgment of God. Look at what America was and is and is becoming. Is God’s judgment upon us? Is He— “letting us go?”

            When we just look at the finances of the U.S. it is astounding how much debt we are in and now we just keep piling it on. God’s Word is clear— “The wicked borrows but does not pay back.”  

I read that during the market crash of 1929 the U.S. debt was $17 billion or 16% of the GDP(gross domestic product—). By 2028 our debt could be $33 trillion or 113% of our GDP. Keep going like this and our debt could be twice the size of our GDP in 25 years. How can that be sustained. “The wicked borrow but does not pay back.” Finances are a heath indicator. The U.S. is extremely unhealthy.

Imagine running a household like that to the point of having a debt twice your income. It just does not work. Why do we think it would work for the country? Destruction may not just come from an outward source, another nation.   We may just self destruct and that appears to be the direction we are going. Is God letting the U.S. go its own way? It appears so.

But judgment starts with the house of God. If that is the case, brother and sister, what do we need to repent of— prayerlessness? Disobedience to His Word (not applying His Word is disobedience)? Not sharing the gospel? Not making disciples? Not serving as He desires? Yes, judgment begins with the Lord’s people. Let us be and do what He desires out of our love for Him and for people.   Dear Father may this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. Oh yes, may it be so!
