Was America once a Christian nation?
Exclusive: Bill Federer looks at Obama’s 2006 statement in light of state constitutions
“Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation.” – President Barack Obama, June 28, 2006
Wouldn’t it be interesting to find out “whatever we once were”?
Originally, laws that governed personal behavior were under states’ jurisdiction, not federal.
People today are aware that some states allow minors to consume alcohol, and others do not; some states have smoking bans, and others do not; some states allow gambling, and others do not; some states attempt to limit the Second Amendment, and others do not; some states allow gay marriage, and others do not; and one state allows prostitution, while the rest do not.
At the time the Constitution was written, religion was under each individual state’s jurisdiction, and each state expanded religious tolerance at its own speed.
The U.S. Constitution went into effect June 21, 1788, when two-thirds of the states ratified it.
What was in those original 13 state Constitutions concerning religion at the time those states ratified the U.S. Constitution? [Caps added throughout for emphasis.]
DELAWARE – first to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1776 state constitution:
“Every person … appointed to any office … shall … subscribe … ‘I … profess faith in GOD THE FATHER, and in JESUS CHRIST His only Son, and in the HOLY GHOST, one God, blessed for evermore; and I do acknowledge the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by Divine inspiration.’”
PENNSYLVANIA – second to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1776 state constitution, signed by Ben Franklin:
“Each member, before he takes his seat, shall … subscribe … ‘I do believe in one GOD, the Creator and Governor of the Universe, the Rewarder of the good and the Punisher of the wicked. And I do acknowledge the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by Divine Inspiration.’”
NEW JERSEY – third to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1776 state constitution:
“All persons, professing a belief in the faith of any PROTESTANT sect, who shall demean themselves peaceably under the government … shall be capable of being elected.”
GEORGIA – fourth to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1777 state constitution:
“Representatives shall be chosen out of the residents in each county … and they shall be of the PROTESTANT religion.”
CONNECTICUT – fifth to ratify the U.S. Constitution, retained its 1662 Colonial Constitution, which was established PROTESTANT CONGREGATIONAL, till 1818:
“By the Providence of GOD … having from their ancestors derived a free and excellent Constitution … whereby the legislature depends on the free and annual election. … The free fruition of such liberties and privileges as humanity, civility and CHRISTIANITY call for.”
MASSACHUSETTS – sixth to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1780 state constitution, written by John Adams:
“Any person … before he … execute the duties of his … office … [shall] subscribe … ‘I … declare, that I believe the CHRISTIAN religion, and have a firm persuasion of its truth.’ … The legislature shall … authorize the support and maintenance of public PROTESTANT teachers of piety, religion and morality.”
MARYLAND – seventh to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1776 state constitution:
“No other test … ought to be required, on admission to any office … than such oath of support and fidelity to this State … and a declaration of a belief in the CHRISTIAN religion.”
SOUTH CAROLINA – eighth to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1778 state constitution:
“No person shall be eligible to a seat … unless he be of the PROTESTANT religion. … The CHRISTIAN PROTESTANT religion shall be deemed … the established religion of this State.”
NEW HAMPSHIRE – ninth to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1784 state constitution: “No person shall be capable of being elected … who is not of the PROTESTANT religion.”
VIRGINIA – 10th to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1776 state constitution, bill of rights, written by James Madison and George Mason:
“It is the mutual duty of all to practice CHRISTIAN forbearance, love, and charity towards each other.”
NEW YORK – 11th to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1777 state constitution:
“The United American States … declare … ‘Laws of nature and of NATURE’S GOD … All men are created equal; that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain unalienable rights … Appealing to the SUPREME JUDGE of the world … A firm reliance on the protection of DIVINE PROVIDENCE’ …”
NORTH CAROLINA – 12th to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1776 state constitution:
“No person, who shall deny the being of GOD or the truth of the PROTESTANT religion, or the Divine authority either of the Old or New Testaments, or who shall hold religious principles incompatible with the freedom and safety of the State, shall be capable of holding … office.”
RHODE ISLAND – 13th to ratify the U.S. Constitution, retained its 1663 Colonial Constitution till 1843, which stated:
“By the blessing of God … a full liberty in religious concernements … rightly grounded upon GOSPEL principles, will give the best and greatest security … in the true CHRISTIAN faith and worship of God. … They may … defend themselves, in their just rights and liberties against all the enemies of the CHRISTIAN faith.”
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Hugo Lafayette Black wrote inEngel v. Vitale, 1962:
“As late as the time of the Revolutionary War, there were established Churches in at least eight of the 13 former colonies and established religions in at least four of the other five.”
John K. Wilson wrote in “Religion Under the State Constitutions 1776-1800″ (Journal of Church and State, Volume 32, Autumn 1990, Number 4, pp. 754):
“An establishment of religion, in terms of direct tax aid to Churches, was the situation in nine of the 13 colonies on the eve of the American revolution.”
The Journal of the U.S. House recorded that on March 27, 1854, the 33rd Congress voted unanimously to print Rep. James Meacham’s report, which stated:
“At the adoption of the Constitution, we believe every State – certainly 10 of the 13 – provided as regularly for the support of the Church as for the support of the Government. …
“Down to the Revolution, every colony did sustain religion in some form. It was deemed peculiarly proper that the religion of liberty should be upheld by a free people. …
“Had the people, during the Revolution, had a suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity, that Revolution would have been strangled in its cradle.”
Over the years, the Christians in these states extended tolerance to other denominations, to Jews, to monotheistic religions, to any religion and eventually to atheists.
Activists judges creatively used the 14th Amendment to remove authority over many issues from state jurisdiction.
Though our government has seemingly abandoned ties to the past, for the student of history, it is still fascinating to find out “whatever we once were.” —

Verse of the Day
Obadiah 1:15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done (to Israel), it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.
China’s new air defense zone above Senkakus ‘very dangerous’ escalation, Japan says 11/23/13 The Chinese feel that now is the time to move for control of Asia.
It appears China feels that America is now weak enough under Obama as the Commander-in-Chief to exert itself in Asia. With the weakness of Obama, it was just a matter of time until China felt safe to move against America. Obama is embarrassingly weak and the Chinese are about to test America’s mettle.
Please notice the connection to China’s move against Japan and what Obama/Kerry are doing to Israel! They are pushing Israel to war with Iran, at the exact time that God is raising up China to confront America!
It is frightening to think of America going to war in Asia with Obama as the Commander-in-Chief. This is the man who is a world evangelist for homosexuality, he leads the charge to kill babies in the womb and betrays God’s covenant nation Israel.
He has done everything in his power to sodomize the military. Notice the short time between sodomizing the US military and China confronting America! The judgment did not take long.
Inside China: Nuclear submarines capable of widespread attack on U.S. 11/01/13 (This article was in my post of November 2. To read this entire post go to: Inside China: Nuclear submarines capable of widespread attack on U.S.)
Just a short time ago, the Chinese newspapers showed China’s ability to attack America with nuclear weapons and now this move against Japan. The Chinese pattern is clear that they are heading for war with America.
It is crystal clear to me, that God has raised up China as a rod of judgment against America.
Dangerous Times: A Looming Strategic Disaster in the Middle East.11/23/13 This is a great article showing what Obama’s lies and weakness have done to the Middle East. He now has set the stage for World War 3 or, as I see it in the Bible, it will start with the Psalm 83 war. This is the all-out war between Israel and the surrounding Arab nations that will spread throughout the world.
God is about to turn the world we know upside down. Please do not fear but stay focused on God and His word. This will keep you from fear.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
As America Has Done to Israel
Hagel: U.S. ‘deeply concerned’ with China air defense map 11/23/13 This map includes islands that belong to Japan!
“We view this development as a destabilizing attempt to alter the status quo in the region,” Hagel said in a statement. “This unilateral action increases the risk of misunderstanding and miscalculations.” “The Associated Press reports that the Chinese Defense Ministry issued a map showing the new East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone, which encompasses what the Chinese call the Diaoyu islands. The move is seen as an aggressive step against Japan, which bought what it calls the Senkaku islands from private owners in 2012. The islands are uninhabited, but are believed to rest near large underwater oil reserves. Taiwan also claims possession of the islands.”
Iran, world powers reach historic nuclear deal 11/23/13 President Clinton did the same thing with North Korea, and it turned out to be a joke. NK actually completed the nuclear bomb and detonated it while under the terms of the agreement! Iran needs this time to complete its bomb and maybe six months is all Iran needs. The key issue is what is Israel going to do?
“The deal, intended as first step toward a more comprehensive nuclear pact to be completed in six months, freezes or reverses progress at all of Iran’s major nuclear facilities, according to Western officials familiar with the details. It halts the installation of new centrifuges and caps the amount and type of enriched uranium that Iran is allowed to produce.”
‘Geneva talks a facade, US-Iran worked secretly on deal for past year’11/17/13 This shows just how treacherous and underhanded Obama is. Deep down, I knew that Obama would sell Israel out. His love for the Muslim Brotherhood was all the proof that I needed. Now that it is his second term in office, he does not have to worry about the political ramification. This is the real Obama and Hard Left in action against Israel.
“The Geneva negotiations between the so-called P5+1 powers and Iran are a mere “facade,” because the terms of a deal on Iran’s nuclear program have been negotiated in talks between a top adviser to President Barack Obama and a leading Iranian nuclear official that have continued in secret for more than a year, Israeli television reportedSunday.”
Will Israel Attack Iran? 11/23/13 Now that the West made a “deal” with Iran, watch these nations unify against Israel. It is possible that Iran will become the “good guy” while Israel now becomes “intransigent” to the West. I think that Obama will try to break Israel. What will happen if he does this is that God will break him.
“Benjamin Netanyahu understands this. Jewish history, and not just Jewish history, teaches this lesson. Netanyahu may well judge that he has to act to stop the Iranian regime from getting nuclear weapons. If he does, then Israel will fight. And Israel will be right.”
Iran Launches ‘Massive’ War Drills 11/21/13 Iran is building and preparing its military for an all-out war with the “dreaded Zionists”. According to the Bible, they are preparing for their own massive defeat.
“Iranian military forces launched a series of “massive military drills” across nine provinces on Wednesday following an order by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, according to state media reports.
The drills, codenamed “Towards Jerusalem,” will continue over the coming days and throughout the rest of the year.”
Rouhani to the West: Ignore Israel, Sign a Deal 11/22/13 What I think will happen is that the coming war will turn into a world war. There is great bloodshed coming to all these countries as God will use the Muslims as judgment. I also think that Russia will take control over Europe also as judgment. The West is forcing Israel into war and bloodshed, and that is exactly what is coming on a massive scale to the West .
Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

Verse of the Day
1John 2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
The Demise of Pax Americana11/15/13 The word “pax” is used but it means: ” A time of wide-ranging stability when there is only a single dominant power” It is most often associated with the Roman Empire.
God’s judgment on Obama and America are really starting to accelerate into a collapse. Under Obama’s leadership America’s position as the dominant world power is now ending. He is totally untrustworthy and seems that his only coherent foreign policy is to promote the Muslim Brotherhood. In addition, he seems determined to see to it that Iran obtains nuclear weapons.
He is so diabolical I have a sense that he cut a deal with Iran, that they could obtain nuclear weapons, as long as they agreed to only use them against Israel and not the United States. I really think that Obama is that evil. In the meantime, China is very subtly threatening America with nuclear war or at least war in Asia! I do believe that God is raising China up as a rod of judgment against America both economically and militarily.
If Obama tries to set up Israel for war with Iran, then for sure, America will find itself in a war that it cannot win.
The 1956 Israeli war is viewed by historians as the end of Great Britain as a world power. Great Britain came against God’s prophetic plan for Israel, and this war put an end to Great Britain’s power. As a result, now this nation is under the complete control of the Hard Left reprobates along with the ascension of Islam to power. God is crushing Great Britain with judgments.
It does appear that this confrontation between “Pharaoh” Obama and Israel is now America’s turn to be punished as was Great Britain’s. As the “Pharaoh” comes against Israel, his presidency is being destroyed both nationally and internationally right before our very eyes.
God’s Final Warning to Obama/America
Obama: Same-Sex Marriage ‘Exemplifies the Values We Hold Dear as a Nation’ 11/13/13 This is his heart of sin that he projects onto the entire nation. Homosexual “marriage” is a delusion invented by the modern Hard Left which are in total rebellion against God.
Gallup: Belief Obama’s ‘Honest and Trustworthy’ Hits All-Time Low 11/13/13 Now that Obama is a proven liar to the public, he has no place to go but down. I expect his ratings to fall to the percentage of his hardcore believers, which is about 25 percent or so. He is heading towards not being able to govern because he is now exposed as a pathological liar. Everyone around him are also pathological liars! Each hearing showed that all the members of Obama’s administration are bold liars. They actually lie about lying! God raises up people like this into power as punishment for a rebellious nation.
He is wounded and now very dangerous. If he cannot get his way with the Hard Left agenda, he might move with an attempt to usurp power with a form of coup. I repeat that he now is extremely dangerous like a wounded animal. God is now dealing directly with Obama and through him the American people. It really does appear that judgment day is approaching very fast.
The belief among the American people that President Barack Obama is “honest and trustworthy” has hit an all-time low, – See more at:http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/gallup-belief-obamas-honest-and-trustworthy-hits-all-time-low#sthash.ejkIRPQi.dpuf
State Dept.: Israeli Settlements Are ‘Illegitimate’ – See more at:http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/patrick-goodenough/state-dept-israeli-settlements-are-illegitimate#sthash.9BFJg0R0.dpuf
State Dept.: Israeli Settlements Are ‘Illegitimate’ 11/15/13 God might deal with America that sections of our nation are illegitimate. The nation could divide up into regions as the unity of the country melts away.
Increasingly often in recent months, Secretary of State John Kerry and State Department officials have made the point about settlement illegitimacy.
Usually, they have attributed the term to “continued” settlement activity – implying active construction work in existing or new settlements. (President Obama used the same term in his 2009 speech in Cairo and again at the United Nations later that year, saying the U.S. “does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.”)
But at a meeting with Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem last week Kerry dropped the modifier, saying only “we consider now and have always considered the settlements to be illegitimate.”
Health Law Rollout’s Stumbles Draw Parallels to Bush’s Hurricane Response 11/14/13 Hurricane Katrina was the destruction of Bush’s presidency and it happened at the exact time that he pressured Israel to abandon Gaza. Now Obama is being destroyed, as he is pressuring Israel to create a Palestinian state by April 2014. I see Obama going “down in flames” like Bush did, only Obama might take the nation down with him.
Israel and the Coming Middle East War
The following articles show more of Obama’s pattern of turning against Israel. The real Obama is now starting to show himself. He could not do it during his first term because of reelection, but with nothing to lose, the real Obama is surfacing.

Verse of the Day
Exodus 9:16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.
I believe that Obama was raised up by God as judgment on America, just as God raised up Pharaoh for judgment on Egypt. He is a tremendous agent of destruction.
What appears to be happening is that as Obama promotes his godless agenda, God is now openly and clearly destroying Obama’s presidency. Five years ago he was hailed almost as a messiah figure, while now he is openly mocked at both home and abroad. I see no way out of this for him. He is locked into destruction because he is an ideologue of rebellion against God. He is a proven liar with no credibility.
Obama mocked God and His word and now he is mocked.
Please link Obama being the world’s evangelist for homosexuality and trying to divide Israel with the destruction of his presidency. This linkage is now so clear.
The problem is, as God is judging Obama, it is going to spill over into America. It will affect the economy and may lead into social unrest. He is so weak that it could induce China, North Korea, Russia or Iran to move against us. His weakness could start a world war.
We are heading into a tremendous volatile time with no turning back. Obama is locked into early next year, trying to divide Israel and Jerusalem. It really does appear that early next year America is going to be divided at the very time Pharaoh Obama touches Israel.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Israel and the Middle East War
‘Israel will attack Iran if you sign the deal 11/10/13 Israel is going to attack no matter what happens. Is this why France backed out of the deal with Iran?
Obama Turns on Israel 11/12/13 Obama’s foreign policy is in shambles. America’s enemies do not fear us and our longtime allies do not trust us! What a mess as the curse on Obama is really starting to manifest.
No Illusions Concerning the Obama Administration 11/10/13 Israel now clearly sees the monster it faces with Obama. He never intended to defend Israel against Iran. The way he would do it is it was a cover to protect Saudi Arabia.
Israeli-US rifts ‘should not be aired publicly,’ Liberman says 11/12/13 Unless Obama needs Israel in a war, I do not see this getting better. The real Obama is now showing his colors and he has no interest in Israel.
PA: Arafat was poisoned by Jews like Islam’s Prophet Muhammad 11/12/13 This could become a rallying cry in the coming war against Israel.
Mufti: Jerusalem is ‘Islamic’ 11/12/13 This is ground zero for Bible prophecy. The Muslims cannot allow the Jews to control Jerusalem. It means that allah is weak and cannot defeat the Zionists!
Jordan vetoes Israeli request to allow Jewish prayer on Temple Mount11/12/13 Once again, this is ground zero for Bible prophecy.
Verse of the Day
Isaiah 26:9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
As Obama/America Has Done to Israel
I warned, just a while back, that Obama was going to be severely judged by the Holy God of Israel. He acts as an “evangelist” for promoting the homosexual agenda throughout the world which makes him a target of God’s judgment. He is covered with the blood of dead babies with how he promotes abortion in every way. He is in full support of the Muslim Brotherhood knowing full well that they want to destroy Christians and Israel. He is doing everything he can to divide Israel and Jerusalem.
He is bringing upon himself a “Perfect Storm” of judgment. He is like a lightning rod for judgment, and, unfortunately, he is the president, so God’s judgment on Obama could involve the entire nation. America is ripe for judgment with 60 million dead babies and an unfettered homosexual agenda, plus the nonstop interfering with God’s prophetic plan for Israel.
Unless Obama repents of leading the nation into wickedness and sin, it really does appear that God is about to crush him. No one can do what he does without severe judgment.
Look at the timing of how both national and international calamity is falling on him with no end in sight.
I hope that the Lord breaks Obama as he did with Manasseh, the wicked King of Judah. After God’s judgment fell on Manasseh, he repented and turned to the Lord.
Obama’s Credibility Is Melting 10/23/13 While Kerry was meeting with Netanyahu, Obama is being humiliated not only in America but throughout the world.
“Bluntly, Mr. Obama’s partners are concluding that they cannot do business with him. They don’t trust him. Whether it’s the Saudis, the Syrian rebels, the French, the Iraqis, the unpivoted Asians or the congressional Republicans, they’ve all had their fill of coming up on the short end with so mercurial a U.S. president. And when that happens, the world’s important business doesn’t get done. It sits in a dangerous and volatile vacuum”
Netanyahu airs fears of Iran compromise as he meets Kerry in Rome10/23/13 When they meet, dividing Israel is always on the table. Kerry is relentless in his drive to divide Israel.
“A bad deal is worse than no deal, if it leaves Iran with the capacity to produce nuclear weapons, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned US Secretary of State John Kerry before the two met in Rome on Wednesday.“I think a partial deal that leaves Iran with these capabilities is a bad deal,” Netanyahu said.”
Merkel frosty on the U.S. over ‘unacceptable’ spying allegations10/24/13 Obama is about to become an international pariah with no credibility. As this happens, think of how he mocks the Lord and His word. Think of how he promotes the Muslim Brotherhood, which is slaughtering Christians and wants to destroy Israel. Think of all the international speeches he makes promoting sodomy.
I cannot see how God’s judgment on Obama can miss America. It appears that the personal judgment on him is going to have a catastrophic impact on America. Watch for the US economy to melt down as Obama is judged.
“German Chancellor Angela Merkel accused the United States of an unacceptable breach of trust on Thursday after allegations that the U.S. bugged her personal mobile phone, and she indicated data agreements with Washington may have to be revised.
Arriving for a two-day summit in Brussels overshadowed by the allegations of eavesdropping by the U.S. National Security Agency against Italy, France and Germany, Merkel said she had told President Barack Obama in a telephone conversation late on Wednesday that the acts were unacceptable.
“It’s not just about me but about every German citizen.
We need to have trust in our allies and partners, and this trust must now be established once again,” she told reporters after arriving in a car with ’007′ in the numberplate.
“I repeat that spying among friends is not at all acceptable against anyone, and that goes for every citizen in Germany.”
Kerry Says World Leaders Mocked Him Over Shutdown 10/24/13 This is what he gets for tempting God over his zeal to divide Israel and Jerusalem. There is more coming if he does not leave Israel alone.
This is also fitting for the man who came back from Vietnam and called the soldiers “Baby Killers” and made other treasonous statements about the nation! What ironic justice for this man!
God is very patient, but He will not be mocked.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (8) For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Verse of the Day
Isaiah 19:4 And the Egyptians (Americans) will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts.
I know that the context of the Isaiah 19:4 is literally Egypt, but it sure looks like God is turning America over to a fierce king or ruler called Obama and his followers of the Hard Left. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the Holy God of Israel has hand chosen this man for judgment on America. He is a perfect fit for a nation that has turned away from God and His word. I realize not every American has rejected God and is in total rebellion against God’s word, but corporately the nation has rejected God at every level.
Psalm 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
The Americans appear to be going out of their way to “spit in God’s face”. The military, with promoting homosexuality and starting to persecute believers, is the best example. The vast majority of the church remains powerless, “dead in the water” and just allowed satan to take over the military. This is really shocking as God’s church is AWOL in the face of this spiritual warfare. It surrendered without a fight.
Satan is now training “his army” to use against the church who surrender to him!
When Jeremiah preached to Israel, he called for national repentance and turning back to the Lord. He did this until King Nebuchadnezzar with his Babylonian army were at the gates of Jerusalem. This is when Jeremiah said it was too late to turn to the Lord and told the Jews to surrender to the Babylonians. The Jews refused to obey Jeremiah, and ended up with the Babylonians destroying Jerusalem and killing vast numbers of the Jews. There comes a time with God, when it is too late to avert judgment.
Jeremiah 27:17 Hearken not unto them; serve the king of Babylon,and live: wherefore should this city be laid waste?
I believe a similar event is about to overtake America. It will be too late for the church to repent and cry out to the Lord for deliverance. America will be turned over to a “fierce king” for judgment. Obama looks like the man as he is heartless. His ruthless, hardened heart is easily proven by his promotion of killing babies in the womb. He even wants to kill the babies born alive from an abortion! He has the heart of an abortionist, which is without mercy and ruthless. I think that ruthless and wicked are the best words for this type of heart.
No matter what he says about Israel, his actions show he wants this nation destroyed. The proof of this is his unwavering support for the Muslim Brotherhood. It is impossible to give such support to an anti-Israel, anti-Christian and anti-American terrorist group, unless he was part of it. He knows this terrorist group wants to destroy Israel and make Jerusalem the capital of an Islamic caliphate, yet he is unwavering in his support for it. It is frightening to think of Obama with unlimited power over Americans.
Obama: The Muslim Brotherhood President 10/10/13 Make sure you read this entire article.
“Obama’s unstinting and uncritical support for the Muslim Brotherhood is nothing new. The Obama administration’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has for years been so glaringly obvious that in July 2012, when then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited Egypt and had a cordial meeting with now-ousted Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi, foes of the Brotherhood regime pelted her motorcade with tomatoes and shoes for delivering that country up to the rule of the Brotherhood. Protestors held signs reading “Message to Hillary: Egypt will never be Pakistan”; “To Hillary: Hamas will never rule Egypt” and “If you like the Ikhwan [Brotherhood], take them with you!”
And last summer, when the Brotherhood regime was suddenly and unexpectedly toppled from power, numerous anti-Brotherhood protesters held signs accusing Obama of supporting terrorists. One foe of the Brotherhood made a music video including the lyrics: “Hey Obama, support the terrorism/Traitor like the Brotherhood members/Obama say it’s a coup/That’s not your business dirty man.
”Obama’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood goes back to the beginning of his presidency. Early in 2009, when the group was still outlawed in Egypt, he met with its leaders. He made sure to invite Brotherhood leaders to attend his notorious speech to the Islamic world in Cairo in June 4, 2009.”
His unwavering support for killing babies and the Muslim Brotherhood, which are slaughtering Christians in Egypt and Syria, is a sign of what this “fierce king” would do to Americans, if God give us over to him.
This is right before us, and just like there came a time, when the Jews could no longer repent but had to go under judgment, it now appears that the time is right before us, that a similar event is going to happen to America.
With Obama as president, the “barbarians are at the gates”!
The thought of 60 million legally aborted babies with their blood crying out for justice and judgment is frightening. Obama with his cruel Muslim Brotherhood mentality, might turn America into a blood bath. The combination of his abortion and Muslim Brotherhood mentality should drive every Christian to his knees and crying out to God for mercy. There is still a slight window for this, but it might be down to weeks to just a few months. Just like ancient Israel, the Babylonians now are almost at the “gates of America” and then it is too late. Can there be any greater “barbarians” than the Muslim Brotherhood?
Obama’s bullying Israel to divide the land and Jerusalem is a sure sign that God’s righteous judgment on America is VERY close. Where is God’s church?
For you that fear the Lord, continue to pray and intercede. Remember, when God judged Jerusalem with King Nebuchadnezzar, He spared those that cried and sighed over the abominations of the nation. They walked in the fear of the Lord and understood God’s holiness.
Ezekiel 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. (5) And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:
We need to keep interceding before the Lord for all the American abominations and trust that He will spare us from the wrath to come.
Above all, no matter what happens to America, do not take your eyes off the coming of the Lord Jesus for His bride. Living with the Blessed Hope will keep you full of peace and joy no matter what chaos and judgment is around us. In reality, the Blessed Hope is the only thing that matters in this world. It is the only thing worth living for in a sin cursed dying world under the judgment of the Holy God of Israel.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you in these coming months; may He place His seal of protection on your forehead, as you do not play religious games but cry out to the Lord.
Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

While our government and the main stream media would rather look the other way and even go so far as to deny that the killing and persecution of Christians is happening, the truth is still getting out. It is amazing to me that in this country that was established on the law of Moses, we have a leader who claims to be a Christian who supports a religion whose tenets promote the killing of those same Christians. But then again that should not surprise me really. While our President makes the claim to Christianity, there has been little evidence to support his claim. And yes, I am judging his actions, as follower of Christ it is our responsibility to point out when leaders who claim the mantle of Christianity, lead their followers down the path of unrighteousness. And that is exactly what Mr. Obama is doing. While Mr. Obama could not be in place without God’s approval, that does not mean that he himself is favored by God. God uses ungodly men as well as godly, you only have to look at your Bible to find many instances of this. Look at Nebuchadnezzar for one.
The culling of the Christians in the Middle East is a forerunner to the destruction of the Jews and the attempted destruction of Israel. It is naive to think that if the killing of the Christians is successful in the Middle East it will stop there. Logic alone will tell us that the efforts will be increased in Europe. The violence is spreading rapidly there as well and Islamic organizations already have established strongholds in South and Central America, as well as in Canada, where it is becoming more and more illegal to even speak against them. And for those who would rather hide their heads in the sand and say that it could never happen here in the United States, let me ask you a question, Why is our Attorney General so quick to sue cities, states, school districts and etc. to make allowances for the practice of Islam, including prayer rooms in schools, and at the same time refusing to allow the same rights to Christians? Why are Christian principles being disallowed in the military and our service men and women being told that if they state their beliefs, they can be tried for treason? These are just a few instances of change in this country since this administration has been in power. Is it really too extreme to see a time in the near future where Christians suffer the same level of persecution that they are suffering in the Middle East?
We know that for prophecy to be fulfilled, this time must come and if we are true followers of Christ, we must be sure that we are doing as we are instructed. As Jesus himself told us, as wise man watches the sky to see the signs. So please my friends, do not take your eyes off of heaven. Be prepared, and follow instructions. They are all there written in the Book! Please do not hide your eyes and deny the reality of what is happening in the world.
The pictures below and the article that they are from are just a small example of what is happening, please take time to read the story and ask why it is not being covered. Also ask why our President is so insistent that the very people causing this destruction, be released from prison.
Verse of the Day
Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Has the church in America had enough of “homosexual month” and the Hard Left agenda? What will it take to stir up this apathetic church, led by the VAST majority of the leaders who appear as hirelings rather than “shepherds of the sheep”? The reprobates are pushing their sin right into our face and going directly after our children, yet silence from the church. Have we become a nation of cowards?
I see the church in America now beaten by the Hard Left reprobates. Where is the fire in our soul to stand for the LORD? Where is the standing for the LORD and His righteousness? Where are the real men who will stand up to the reprobates and give leadership. The church now seems divorced from reality.
I see the American church just the way the Jews were in Germany under the Nazis. They were emotionally beaten down, and no matter how much persecution, they just did not believe the Nazis would attempt to slaughter them. This is the modern American church, as it seems beaten and not living in reality.
There is very little to NO fear of God. The reprobates can do anything, and the vast amount of Christians yawn and go about whatever they are doing. This is not a game but deadly reality. The reprobates hate us and want to destroy us and anything that has to do with the LORD. It is a spiritual war that is now in the natural.
Does the American church have a death wish? Do we want to come under the bloodthirsty hatred of the Hard Left? Do we want our children turned into reprobates, as the entire society is now becoming reprobate, with no power in the church to stand against it. The Holy Spirit is receding from America, while the spirit of the antichrist is flooding in to fill the void. Do you think God’s Holy Spirit is going to bless the nation during “homosexual month?” No, He is going to turn us over for judgment, yet the vast majority of believers refuse to believe God would judge America or that massive tornado storms are God’s judgment!
Maybe the following verse is no longer valid, or God has made an exception for America:
2 Peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
Third-Graders Introduce Obama at LGBT Pride Event 06/14/13 (Video) This is child abuse to use children like this for a homosexual event. He is a real reprobate in every sense of the word. This is coming from the president! Is he trying to turn these children into reprobates like he is? What about the parents of these children? There is now a huge percentage of the nation that goes along with the reprobate agenda. They are like minded with Obama, and that is why he was elected.
California Votes to Allow Boys to Shower with Girls in Public Schools06/13/13This is more “fruit” of Obama’s “Gay Month.” The reprobates are now in charge of huge sections of the nation, and this is where they are pushing the country. The population of California and many other states are spiritually, emotionally and intellectually dead. The reprobates are in charge of the military and are turning it into a sad joke.
From the article: “Would it surprise you to learn that the bill’s author, Assemblyman Tom Ammiano is a Democrat and homosexual from San Francisco? He is also heavily involved in LGBT activist groups. In 1975 Ammiano became the first public school teacher in San Francisco to publicly admit that he was a homosexual.”
It appears because of the deadness of the vast amount of Christians who refuse to repent and intercede before the LORD, God is turning America over to reprobates for judgment. This is “homosexual month” so there is no holding back the reprobates. They are bold in their sin without shame.
Obama slated to name five openly homosexual foreign ambassadors06/13/13 This is more fuel to the judgment fire for June as national “homosexual month”.
“Emily Heil of the Washington Post speculated that the rash of homosexual appointments is repayment for the massive role gay activists had in the president’s fundraising efforts, as well as on Election Day. Heil reported that a dozen members of Obama’s national finance team are openly homosexual, and said an argument could be made that gay Americans “handed Obama the election” by voting for him by a three-to-one margin.”
If the vast majority lack the fear of the LORD, it does not mean we cannot stand in the name of Jesus. We are to stand for the LORD and His righteousness no matter what others are doing or not doing. We are to be a witness to the end and also to stand as a watchman to warn of what is coming. Even if the masses do not listen, we are still called to warn.
In Noah’s day he warned and few listened. Few came out of Sodom in Lot’s day. Few listened to Jeremiah, yet God still called him to warn of the coming judgment. Our job is to warn and preach the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Every Thursday night, I have 2 hours of prayer on my blog talk radio show called The Prayer of the Solemn Assembly. If you cannot find a place that calls out to the LORD in repentance and for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, you are welcome to join us.
I see this time as an honor to stand for Lord in face of the Hard Left reprobates who hate our Father in heaven.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Psalm 94:16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
(17) Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
(18) When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.
(19) In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
(20) Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
(21) They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
(22) But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
(23) And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.
Hard Left Watch
Pelosi: Late-Term Abortions ‘Sacred Ground’ 06/13/13 Abortion and homosexuality are the two most important issues to the reprobates. They really do protect the killing of babies at all costs. Killing the babies is one of the fundamentals of the Hard Left.
“As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this,” Pelosi said. “This shouldn’t have anything to do with politics.”
U.S. Agencies Said to Swap Data With Thousands of Firms 06/13/13 Wow, this is a fantastic article loaded with great information. Make sure that you read it. This spying cannot be stopped. It can be slowed down but not stopped. There is such high-tech now that it is just too easy. One more major terrorist attack and the people will go along with more spying. It is always for our good.
You are now looking at the foundation of the 666 Surveillance System, which I write about on my other blog. The world is heading for a complete surveillance society which has to be in place for the antichrist.
“Makers of hardware and software, banks, Internet security providers, satellite telecommunications companies and many other companies also participate in the government programs. In some cases, the information gathered may be used not just to defend the nation but to help infiltrate computers of its adversaries.
Along with the NSA, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and branches of the U.S. military have agreements with such companies to gather data that might seem innocuous but could be highly useful in the hands of U.S. intelligence or cyber warfare units, according to the people, who have either worked for the government or are in companies that have these accords.”
Congressman: Christian Soldiers Being Singled out for Punishment06/12/13 This was easy to see coming. Obama is putting all his people in place in the military, and they will not tolerate Christianity. The homosexuals are out of the closet, while they are trying to put the Christians in it. The Muslims can roam free as a protected class, and even give jihad powerpoint presentations on military bases until they murder our soldiers.
Israel and the Middle East War
U.S.: Syria used chemical weapons, crossing “red line” 06/13/13 The US is now going to back the al-Qaeda rebels! The entire Middle East is now spiraling out of control.
“The president has made a decision about providing more support to the opposition that will involve providing direct support to the [Supreme Military Council]. That includes military support,” Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communication Ben Rhodes told reporters.”
Kerry’s plan: Core issues, then gestures, and finally Jerusalem 06/12/13 Kerry and Obama still have plans to divide Jerusalem. They will not give up on Jerusalem. Israel will not divide the city, so this impasse is going to rupture relations between the US and Israel.
“After the two sides reach agreements on a number of core issues, Israel would make a gesture to the Palestinians that includes a freeze of settlement construction and the release of prisoners.The issue of Jerusalem would be left for the end of negotiations.”
Syrian rebels pledge loyalty to al-Qaeda 04/11/13 This is going to be an all-out war between Sunni Islam and Shiite Islam.
Assad warns of ‘strategic’ response to IDF strikes 06/10/13 I think that Assad will only attack Israel when Iran is ready to join him. He knows that Israel would destroy him, so he is not foolish enough to do it alone. It would take a coordinated attack with Hezbollah and Iran for Assad to attack Israel.
Gulf begins mass expulsion of Lebanese Shiites over Hizballah’s role in Syria 06/12/13 This is yet another step towards the Muslim civil war. They wanted to destroy Israel and now they are about to destroy each other!
Iran’s apocalyptic policy makers 06/10/13 This gives really good background on Iran’s Ayatollahs and how they think and their motives.
With Cameras Rolling, Egyptian Politicians Threaten Ethiopia Over Dam06/06/13 They also mention America and Israel were their enemies.
“I’m very fond of battles. With the enemies, of course – with America and Israel, but this battle must be waged with maximum judiciousness and calm. Even though this is a secret meeting, we must all take an oath not to leak anything to the media…”
IDF advanced plans for 1,225 new settler homes 06/12/13 This will upset the entire world.
Kerry Quietly Skirts Law Put in Place by Congress, Sends Muslim Brotherhood-Controlled Egypt $1.3 Billion Gift 06/07/13 He did against the law that Congress set up!.
California on the Brink: Pension Crisis About to Get Worse 06/12/13 I have not said much about California’s economy in a long time. Now it is back in the spotlight as the state pensions are once again about to hit the state hard. Many of the cities may go bankrupt over the pensions.
“The new rules could nearly double California’s unfunded liabilities to $328.6 billion. Moreover, California cities that have already filed for bankruptcy protection, like Stockton and Vallejo, will fall deeper into the red.”
Emergency manager: Detroit won’t pay $2.5B it owes 06/14/13 It will be interesting to see the extent of this default. Will it spread to other cities or will it drive up the cost of municipal bonds? Let’s watch the fall out because it has to spoke the bond market. What is Detroit now going to do? I guess it will become a ward of Michigan.
Floods, Famine, Fires, Etc.
Multiple fires force evacuation of thousands in Colorado 06/11/13 Colorado burned last June during “Gay Month.” Now the fires are back once again.
Derecho Risk From Chicago to Columbus 06/12/13 This is like an inland hurricane that causes enormous damage.
One dead, dozens injured in massive pileup during dust storm 06/11/13 This was a massive storm that shut everything down.
Missouri sinkhole area called ‘very dangerous’ to public 06/11/13 I posted this to show you the never-ending sinkholes erupting throughout America. Florida seems the worst state; however, they are occurring all over America.

Verse of the Day
Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
Proverbs 11:21 Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
Obama signed a proclamation declaring June as “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month”. When I read this proclamation I was shocked to see it was dated May 31, 2013. This was the date of the massive tornado storm that severely damaged Oklahoma and Missouri.
What was stunning in the proclamation was that Obama plans on using America to press the homosexual agenda worldwide! He is going to use America as the springboard for homosexual rights worldwide. America used to send out large numbers of missionaries throughout the world to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, but now it is sending out government agents of sin. America is now a vector for spreading sin. It is not just people promoting sin, but the government of the United States is doing it. This means that it is creating Ordinances of the Amorites, which brings God’s judgment on the nation. See the end of this article for my teaching about the Ordinances of the Amorites.
For my complete teaching on homosexuality, see Homosexuality vs God’s Holiness.
On the very day Obama was promoting sin in America and the world, the heart of America was being terrorized by ferocious tornado storms. As Obama has taken sin to new level by using the government to promote it worldwide are these storms now the “new normal” to match the level of sin? I use the phrase “new normal” because this was the theme of Oklahoma City, homosexual event the day before the massive tornado storm wrecked havoc in that area.
With so little intercession by the church and virtually ignoring the homosexual agenda, America is left with very little spiritual protection. With all the homosexual activity this June and into September, the nation might be hit with awesome disasters from every angle.
I believe that the tornado storms hitting Oklahoma is God’s way of using nature to awaken His church. It seems the word of God is not enough, so God is trying to shake the church into repentance and crying out to Him for mercy and to send the Holy Spirit for revival. So far, the vast amount of believers are not responding.
12 dead in aftermath of tornadoes, floods 06/01/13 Meteorologists reported this as the greatest tornado outbreak in history. Up to 30 square miles were destroyed along with about 15,000 houses. Is this going to be the new normal for the nation as Obama promotes the homosexual agenda worldwide?
“The death toll has jumped to 12 in the aftermath of a swarm of destructive twisters that tore through the Midwest, killing seven adults and two children in Oklahoma and causing three deaths in Missouri blamed on flooding.
Floodwaters also proved deadly in Oklahoma, where a 4-year-old girl died after she was swept away while taking shelter with her family in a ditch, according to police.It is unclear whether the girl is one of the nine people who died as five tornadoes — one a half-mile wide — struck the Oklahoma City area Friday evening, terrorizing communities already battered by deadly storms this spring.”
Presidential Proclamation — Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, 201305/31/13 Obama wants America to be the launching pad for homosexual “rights” worldwide! America is now as a sin-diseased nation spreading the sin to the rest of the world. Look at the destruction the day he made this announcement!
“And because LGBT rights are human rights, my Administration is implementing the first-ever Federal strategy to advance equality for LGBT people around the world.
We have a long way to go, but if we continue on this path together, I am confident that one day soon, from coast to coast, all of our young people will look to the future with the same sense of promise and possibility. I am confident because I have seen the talent, passion, and commitment of LGBT advocates and their allies, and I know that when voices are joined in common purpose, they cannot be stopped.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2013 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand thirteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-seventh. BARACK OBAMA
FEMA Opens Disaster Funds to Oklahoma Tornado Victims 05/28/13 America’s judgment from God is going to match the level of sin.
At least 16 dead after rain, twisters lash mid-US; storms head east06/02/13 The meteorologists used the word “terror” to describe the power of this storm. Is this going to be the new normal for tornadoes and other natural disasters?
“Violent storms that left at least 16 people dead in Oklahoma and Missouri were heading towards the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Sunday, as the nation’s mid-section struggled to cope with floodwaters. At least 13 people –including nine adults, three of who were storm chasers, and four children — were killed after five tornadoes — one a half-mile wide — struck the Oklahoma City area Friday evening, terrorizing communities already battered by deadly storms this spring.”
Massive wildfire rages in California, threatening 1,000 homes 06/03/13 This could be the “new normal” this summer.
Stocks end strong May with sell-off 05/31/13 “A strong month on Wall Street ended on a weak note Friday after a late-day sell-off sent stocks down more than 1%.”
The Ordinances of the Amorites
The Ordinances of the Amorites
Genesis 15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again:
for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
God told Abraham that his descendants were going to leave the land of Canaan for 400 years because the iniquity of the people living in the land was not complete. There is a process for a society to be taken over by iniquity. In the case of the Canaanites, God gave these people 400 years to stop iniquity. God knew that after 400 years the iniquity of the people would reach its peak. The people would not turn from sin, but they would completely embrace it.
When studying Genesis 15:16 there is a key word in this verse. It is the Hebrew word translated full. This word is directly connected with the idea of friendly or friendship. The concept of this word is that when a society is friendly with iniquity at that point it is subject to judgment from God. Iniquity is no longer shameful or disgraceful. It is not hidden or done in the dark. The people are “friendly” with it. They are accustomed to it. In Genesis 15:16, the Bible does not define iniquity: it simply states that there is a time for it to mature in a society and become full.
After the 400 years, the Jews left Egypt and came back to the land of Canaan . Today it is called the land of Israel . At this time, the Bible identifies what is iniquity. In Leviticus 18, God warned the Jews not to follow the ordinances of the Canaanites who lived in the land. The Canaanites and Amorites blended into one people; therefore it is also the ordinances of the Amorites that are mentioned in Genesis 15:16.
Leviticus 18:3 After the doings of the land of Egypt , wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan , whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.
In the above verse, the key word is “ordinances”. This Hebrew word means an enactment and is also translated custom, manner, and statute. By using the word ordinance the Bible is describing a society that is “friendly” with iniquity. Iniquity has become ingrained in the Canaanites, by both customs and laws, which makes it a way of life. For this reason, God is about to judge the Canaanites and drive them off the land. The judgment comes because iniquity is made an ordinance of the society and not because individuals are committing iniquity. When a society makes iniquity an ordinance, this is extremely serious with God.
Later in chapter 18, the Bible defines iniquity. It includes such acts as: adultery, child sacrifice, homosexuality and bestiality. Homosexuality is singled out from this group and described as an abomination. Without any doubt, God strongly condemns the homosexual act as iniquity. There is no section in the Old Testament where God approves or condones homosexuality. The homosexual act is a very serious offense to God. It is linked with child sacrifice and bestiality. The Scriptures to show this follow:
Leviticus 18:20 Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour’s wife, to defile thyself with her. (Adultery)
(21) And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD. (Child sacrifice)
(22) Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. (Homosexuality)
(23) Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. (Bestiality)
The Bible warns that when homosexuality becomes an ordinance, social custom or norm, it will bring God’s judgment on that nation. When the Bible defines iniquity, the homosexual act would automatically fall under the description of this word. In the strongest language possible, the Bible says because of iniquity the land will vomit out its inhabitants. The Scriptures to show this follows:
Leviticus 18:24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
(25) And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
(26) Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
(27) (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)
The United States now is enacting, by both custom and law, the Ordinances of the Amorites; therefore the nation is defiled before the holy God of Israel and faces His judgment. By promoting homosexuality, America has become like the ancient pagan Amorites and has now come under the judgment of God.
America promotes homosexuality by custom with events such as Gay Pride Day, Gay Awareness Month (June), Gay days at Disney land, Gay Day at sporting events and events like Southern Decadence in New Orleans . There are gay clubs in high schools and colleges. The political parties are pandering to the homosexuals for their votes. By custom, homosexuality has woven into the fabric of America .
America is continually making ordinances to advance the homosexual agenda. Sodomites can legally marry in California and Massachusetts while many states recognize civil unions. Homosexuals are now able to adopt children and gain custody of children during a divorce. There are now numerous hate speech laws which are being used to silence opposition to the homosexual agenda. America is a long way down the road to enacting all the Ordinances of the Amorites.
The Bible warns of God judging a nation that walks in these ordinances. When the corporate attitude of a nation is friendly toward homosexuality, then at this point the iniquity is full. It is apparent “the cup” of America’s sin is rapidly filling up. Americans hardly blush anymore at fornication and adultery. The nation kills over one million babies a year with over 50 million killed since 1973. The legalizing of abortion was an additional Ordinance of the Amorites. Homosexuality is fast becoming “a Constitutional right”. The only ordinance left to fulfill Leviticus 18 is bestiality. This is probably next on line to become an ordinance!
