What is happening in America today? If one turns on primetime t.v. you will see many lifestyles and actions that would shock those who established America. Are the morals of America declining? If so why?
“To answer the why first we must understand who Americans are. America was colonized by the British Empire. But its roots go much deeper. Why do so many Americans use the Hebrew Bible? The Bible focuses on the history of one people: the Israelites. The Bible is a book about the history and future of Israel, inspired by Israel’s God and delivered through Israel’s prophets and apostles. The Bible Americans have is Israel’s Bible. America’s precepts of justice, freedom, common good, individual rights, equality, fairness and the rule of law trace back to the holy book of Israel. Why?
God’s Promises to Abraham
- Genesis 12:1-2 | God promises Abraham that his descendants will become a great nation.
- Genesis 17:1-6 | God promises Abraham will be a father of many nations, not just one.
- Genesis 22:16-18 | God promises that the birthright nations among Abraham’s descendants will possess the gates (access points) of their enemies.
- Genesis 26:3-5 | God promises the birthright nations will multiply as the stars of heaven.
- Genesis 27:26-29 | God promises the birthright nations will become wealthy and rule over other nations.
- Genesis 28:13-14 | God promises that the birthright nations will spread worldwide.
- Genesis 35:11 | God promises that the birthright nations will become “a nation and a company of nations.”
Take an objective look at these promises in the Bible. If you believe that God exists, the Bible is His Word, and that He keeps His promises, you should look for Abraham’s descendants to appear prominently in history. You should be able to see them take shape at some point as one wealthy, powerful nation and as a group of nations—a superpower and a commonwealth, you might say.” reported by America’s Lost Identity thetrumpet.com
If we as a people have lost our Identity it’s no wonder we have lost our way. Please, ask your current minister about this article and gauge his/her reaction. Is it no wonder that in the end, God rebukes the church as being Lukewarm.
“And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation. “‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see. …
The modern-day church turns a blind eye to Islam selling slaves in Lybia on the open market. That is how they take care of Nigerian refugees. Maybe we should practice their methods with their “refugees”. Islam persecutes Christians in the Middle East the modern church is silent!!

“The Bible records that Abraham’s children flourished into the 10-tribe nation of Israel. In Genesis 48, Abraham’s grandson Jacob—whom God renamed Israel—specifically assigned his name to Ephraim and Manasseh, saying that one of these descendants would become a “great” people (the United States), and that the other would become a “multitude of nations” (Great Britain).
If the American and British people aren’t the modern Israelites—a populous, widespread, multinational, wealthy, powerful nation and company of nations—then no one else has fulfilled or is fulfilling those promises God made. And if those promises failed, then the Bible is irrelevant and its many prophecies about Abraham’s modern descendants are pointless.” The Trumpet Continues.
Why have we lost our way? Here in America, the new modern thinking seems to guide us towards lawlessness and whatever feels good theology. We have a new gender identity crisis in America. Could this be a byproduct of our identity crisis? Family values and parental authority are under attack by our institutions of learning backed by the free press. Riots are called a protest and encouraged. There is a “resist” movement in America that wants to dictate what you can own or say!! Our inner cities are war zones!! ~RJH
