For What Itís Worth,
Let’s Talk About America and Americans



By E. J. Bradshaw

In His revealed word, God has a message for all Americans. “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” Psalm 33:12. “Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.” Proverbs 14:34. “How long, you simple ones (unthinking ones), will you love simplicity--and fools hate knowledge? Turn you (repent) at my reproof. Behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you--but you have set at naught all my counsel and would none of my reproof--therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way---for the turning away of the simple and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.” Read all of Proverbs 1:22-33. History is filled with examples of peoples who thought they could “scoff at sin”, ignore God’s laws and warnings, live as they pleased, and get by with it. Sad, but we seem to think God will always “be there for us”; but in keeping with God’s word, we shall find as did those before us, “Because God called, and people refused, but set at naught all his counsel - (then calamity came) they called upon God; and He did not answer.” Proverbs 1:24-28.

Since July 4, 1776 when our forefathers declared our independence until July 4, 2010 (234 years) our country has not faced the perils that we face today! The solution will not be found in our strength, or wealth, (we are bankrupt borrowing money to pay the interest on our debts) or the power of Washington DC. “Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord”. Zechariah 4:6. We best try God’s way, i.e. “If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves, pray, seek my face or presence, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” II Chronicles 7:14. You cannot repent for others; nor can they repent for you; so, are you willing to personally meet God’s condition for the healing of America’s ills? A personal note; I feel that time is running out!

And, for what it’s worth, Americans must learn that we cannot get a dollar back from Washington without sending a bunch of dollars for the freight both ways, storage while it is there and scam artists (Congress’s cut). Thanks for letting me get that last line out of my system.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!
