I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

GOD is NOT happy with America.

Contrary to most of the myths being spread around the world today, there IS a God - one God, the God of Abraham and Moses, of David and Solomon, of Joshua and Jeremiah. God is also not silent: He will talk to anyone who will LISTEN to Him. He is not happy with "modern"
America, and those of us who have quietly listened have gotten an earful.

God is not happy with our government. That doesn't just mean with the current president, or the Congress, but with every dishonest person that is elected, appointed, or employed to govern the affairs of our nation. He hates the fraud, waste, and outright theft that occurs on a daily basis. He hates those that use the power given to them to conduct the affairs of our nation in the manner established by our forefathers to line their own pockets, to enrich their family and friends at the expense of others, and those that use bureaucracy and red tape to deny aid to the needy, often for petty reasons.

God is not happy with our "entertainment" industry. It seems that each day, they try to see how more revolting they can be, how much farther they can push back the bounds of what most of us consider the minimum consideration of modesty and behavior. God punished Sodom and Gomorrah for behavior many of us can see or hear every day. He is also furious at US for allowing this garbage into our homes without protest.

God is not happy with our "news" industry. He knows that they lie to us at least once or twice each day, that they do this deliberately to promote or protect those they support with their efforts, and for many, with their hearts. He knows they have failed in their duty to be the "watchdogs of society". Instead, they have become the lapdogs of those that do all manner of evil.

God is not happy with those that pretend to "educate" our children Much of what they teach mocks God. Many of those that pretend to teach instead spend the majority of their time pushing an indoctrination that is destructive of the very rights and freedoms that are the Gift of God. Teachers' Unions are far more interested in seeing that they are not held responsible for the poor job they do than in preparing a new generation to deal with the future. The very basis of our government, its dedication to God, is prohibited from being taught in our schools.

God is not happy with our churches. These "Houses of the Lord" are all too frequently filled with cardboard worshipers - and led by cardboard "preachers/priests". The Spirit of the Lord is seldom evoked. The presence of the Spirit is palpable in its absence. Yet Jesus himself said that He would be with those that gathered together in His name. How many times has the Spirit of God, through His Son Jesus, been felt by most worshipers?

God is not happy with us. He gave us a new nation, conceived in His name, and dedicated to ensuring that His laws were paramount in our lives. Today groups are alive and active all across this continent, doing their best to destroy what our founders believed was the most perfect form of human government, and most of us do nothing. Too many people accept the fallacy that we have a "right" to not be offended, to not face unpleasant truths, to not have to accept responsibility for our own behavior. God, however, will sit in judgment on the final days, and He isn't distracted with all the petty "offenses" others use to destroy us.

God is also forgiving:

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

He also knows those who truly put Him first, instead of putting themselves first:

Matthew 7:15 ¶ Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 ¶ Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

God wants us to be happy, but He wants us to be happy in HIM. Look around the world today and see which people are truly happy. I don't mean those that pretend to be happy, but those that seem to be happy day in and day out. They are people who put God first in their lives. They're also remarkably successful. This, too, is the plan of God for His people:

Matthew 6:28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Our nation lived by putting God first in the daily lives of its citizens from 1776 until the early 1960's, and our nation prospered beyond the wildest dreams of its founders. There were trials and tribulations, including some horrendous problems that cost the lives of hundreds of thousands of our citizens, but God's Plan continued, and our nation prospered. But God isn't happy with our nation and its people today, and has turned His Face from us. Unless we return to the path of our ancestors, we will find God's Face turned from us permanently. That would be catastrophic for all of us.
