Question? Does the Bible have any answers to explain why America is in such Chaos?
Answer: Yes it does.
In fact, the very reason for America’s rocketing descent into moral and spiritual decay can be summed up by three reasons.
– #1 Man sinful nature
Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
People WANT their own way and that comes out of from the old sinful nature that every single person is born with.
America HAS BECOME a nation of those that believe and act AS IF they are owed a living and entitled to everything.
The Bible states…
2 Timothy 3:1-4 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2) For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, (3) Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, (4) Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.
– #2 Satan’s Deception
Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.
2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Satan has been DECEIVING and LYING to mankind (people) making them the fool ever since the Garden of Eden where he lied and deceived Eve.
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Satan is a MASTER LIAR, He convinced ONE THIRD (1/3rd) of all the angels that God had created to follow him in rebellion against God and their creator.
Revelation 12:4, 9 (4) And his (satan) tail drew the third part (1/3rd) of the stars (angels) of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.(9) And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Isaiah 14:12-14 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! (13) For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: (14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
The Bible states in John 8:44…
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it.
Therefore knowing satan’s tactics as recorded in scripture along with his army of fallen angels (demons) their whole game plan and purpose is deceive all of mankind if all possible.
2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent (satan) beguiled (lied, deceived) Eve through his subtilty (trickery, lies), so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
– #3 Rebellion against God & Authority
Romans 13:1-7 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. (2) Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. (3) For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: (4) For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. (5) Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. (6) For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. (7) Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
God ESTABLISHED (ordained) a governing body CALLED a government for the VERY PURPOSE to provide, and promote a safe and healthy society in which for people to live in.
But man BECAUSE OF his own desires and wants (sinful nature) to live for self and as he or she pleases ALONG WITH satan’s influence HAS REBELLED against God and the Governing Authorities that he has established in which it has INVOKED the Judgement of God upon mankind individually and upon the world as a nation and a society as a whole.
To know if this is true all one has to do is read the Old Testament, the Nation of Israel is a PRIME EXAMPLE, they had MANY SUFFERINGS due to their failure to heed to God’s warnings and commands.
One of the GREATEST FAILURES that the Nation of Israel has paid a HUGE, HEAVY price for the past Two Thousand Years is the CRUCIFIXION of their Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ.
They the Religious Leaders (Scribes, Pharisees, & Sadducees) EXCLAIMED crucify him (Jesus Christ) We have no king but Caesar, and they the Religious leaders ALSO HAD convinced many people with their lies and they inturned CRIED OUT let his (Jesus Christ) blood be upon us and our children and IT HAS.
John 19:15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered We have no king but Caesar.
Matthew 27:20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
Matthew 27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
The Bible states in 2 Timothy 3:13
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
The word WAX is the Greek word PROKOPTO and it means: TO ADVANCE, TO GROW, TO INCREASE.
As mankind CONTINUES to downward spiral into Moral and Spiritual decay, scripture states it is ONLY going to continue to GET WORSE.
The Bible states in Jeremiah 17:9…
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
The outlook looks VERY BLEEK but the bible has the solution to ALL of the chaos that has gripped America and this old world.
The Bible states in Galatians 1:3 – 4…
Galatians 1:3-4 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, (4) Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father.
The Lord Jesus Christ left heaven to die, shed his blood on the cross for every person’s sins and three days later resurrected from the dead PROVING that God had accepted that payment and he offers it as a FREE GIFT to any who will simply PERSONALLY BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus paid for their sin in full on the cross.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins. the MOMENT you believe (TRUST in Christ ALONE) you recieve eternal life.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
