Fall of a Nation by Anthony Smith

Jeremiah 51:6-51:18

The Fall of a Nation, Babylon is Fallen. Isrepparttar United States , Spiritual Babylon ? Jer.51:6-18. I read an articalrepparttar 135356 other day, concerningrepparttar 135357 vast wealth of America andrepparttar 135358 massive influence that she has overrepparttar 135359 rest ofrepparttar 135360 world. Most banking systems are located in New York City, Gold ,Silver, Diamonds and all manner of costly stones and commerce is located here. International travel is centered here andrepparttar 135361 major religions aroundrepparttar 135362 world look at her. Most commentators look atrepparttar 135363 Kingdom ofrepparttar 135364 Chaldes as Babylon, which is probably correct, but we are looking at spiritual Babylon. Syria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Russia, China all combined together, constitute a spiritual and physical Babylon, because ofrepparttar 135365 vast wealth and resources they poses. In my opinion these will in time constitute a great threat to Israel and her soventry and safety. Russia will try to exploit Israel as she prospers, and according to prophecy, Israel will bloom. China will, collaborate with Syria andrepparttar 135366 rest ofrepparttar 135367 nations, underrepparttar 135368 leadership ofrepparttar 135369 anti-christ, to destroy Israel, atrepparttar 135370 battle of Armageddon. The question here is, America, spiritual Babylon. Inrepparttar 135371 past 60 years, America has becomerepparttar 135372 center of commerce, and religion. She has been dubbed,repparttar 135373 Golden one of all nations, for wealth power and knowledge. Knowledge has been increased, we can even clone animals, probably even people. All Nations are jealous of her and have become drunk on her way of life. You’ve herd other nations talk aboutrepparttar 135374 western influence, on clothes, movies, music, food, and freedom, their talking aboutrepparttar 135375 things that America offersrepparttar 135376 world. The United States Supreme Court in 1865 , stated that this Nation was “CHRISTIAN” and owed everything to its creator. What has happened sense to change such a dramatic statement? Have we forgotten our Creator, have we forgotten all that He has done for us? Lets look at some scripture, then you can decide for yourself. Jer. 51:6-18, “BABYLON HATH BEEN A GOLDEN CUP IN THE lORDS HAND,that made allrepparttar 135377 earth drunken;the nations have drunk of her wine;thereforerepparttar 135378 nations are mad. ,.....WE would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed; forsake her and let us go everyone into his own country....for His device is against Babylon to destroy it...” This is a nation of power, a nation of influence, a nation of back-sliders, a nation that has turned

Thou Shalt Not.

Written by Rev.Anthony Smith

Have you ever readrepparttar Ten Commandments and paused atrepparttar 135355 words, “Thou Shalt Not?”I have read many an artical condemning Ministers for speaking out against, sin, unrighteousness, life styles contrary torepparttar 135356 Commandments of God and Christ, and believe it or not, these condemnations are coming not fromrepparttar 135357 unsaved butrepparttar 135358 Christian. So I thought aboutrepparttar 135359 scriptures andrepparttar 135360 words “Thou Shalt Not?” Words have become a weapon for many who don't understandrepparttar 135361 ”Thou Shalt Not of scripture, such as, “Love one another, Judge not that ye shall not be judged, God loves everyone, Jesus loves all man so letrepparttar 135362 LIFESTYLES of those people be allright.I don't understand why Preachers use specific passages inrepparttar 135363 Bible to make their point,Preachers are either Far Right or Far Left,We cant single out organizations because of what they believe and teach, people of alternate lifestyles can be Christians too.” Words,Words,Words. Many are usingrepparttar 135364 Word of God to justifyrepparttar 135365 unrighteousness of others, so lets see some words from God. Mark 7:13 Makingrepparttar 135366 word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye. Matthew 15:3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgressrepparttar 135367 commandment of God by your tradition? Matthew 22:35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,......... Rom 2:19 And art confident that thou thyself art a guide ofrepparttar 135368 blind, a light of them which are in darkness, Rom 2:20 An instructor ofrepparttar 135369 foolish, a teacher of babes, which hastrepparttar 135370 form of knowledge and ofrepparttar 135371 truth inrepparttar 135372 law. Rom 2:21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? Rom 2:22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege? Rom 2:23 Thou that makest thy boast ofrepparttar 135373 law, through breakingrepparttar 135374 law dishonourest thou God? Rom 2:24 Forrepparttar 135375 name of God is blasphemed amongrepparttar 135376 Gentiles through you, as it is written. Rom 2:25 For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keeprepparttar 135377 law: but if thou be a breaker ofrepparttar 135378 law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. Rom 2:26 Therefore ifrepparttar 135379 uncircumcision keeprepparttar 135380 righteousness ofrepparttar 135381 law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? Rom 2:27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfilrepparttar 135382 law, judge thee, who byrepparttar 135383 letter and circumcision dost transgressrepparttar 135384 law? Rom 2:28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward inrepparttar 135385 flesh: Rom 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that ofrepparttar 135386 heart, inrepparttar 135387 spirit, and not inrepparttar 135388 letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. Mat 22:38 This isrepparttar 135389 first and great commandment. “Loverepparttar 135390 Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” Mat 22:39 Andrepparttar 135391 second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Mat 5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, “Thou shalt not.....”: Mat 19:18 ....... Jesus said, Thou shalt do no....., Thou shalt not......, Thou shalt not......, Thou shalt not......, Lets look a little closer at some of Gods Words. 1. Makingrepparttar 135392 word of God of none effect through your tradition. Have many Christians, as didrepparttar 135393 Pharisies, become wrapped up in Traditions. Not looking into scripture any further thatrepparttar 135394 Crucification and Resurrection of Christ. Have they stopped at Salvation and Baptism and neglectedrepparttar 135395 Weightier matters of The Gospel of Christ. The Gospel of Jesus Christ does not stop at John. The Gospel of Jesus starts at Genesis and ends with Revelations. 2.which ye have delivered. Many Christians are makingrepparttar 135396 Mistake of allowing others, whom are lost, to live alternate lifestyles and alternate religions, without speaking out againstrepparttar 135397 unrighteousness and sinfulness of their choices, not trying to warn them ofrepparttar 135398 consequences of their actions. Mankind hasrepparttar 135399 right to make His own choice, weather to believe or not to believe in Gods word, but Jesus commanded us to warn them, not to keep silent or fight for them to remain lost. Thats right, I said, Fight for them to remain Lost.When Christians dictate torepparttar 135400 Ministers of God, what to preach and what not to Preach, we become Transgressers ofrepparttar 135401 Law of God. 3.transgressrepparttar 135402 commandment of God What arerepparttar 135403 Commandments of God, are they guidelines for Christians to live by or are they points that can be changed or debated among ourselves? We Cannot follow afterrepparttar 135404 Traditions of Man, we are only subject torepparttar 135405 Laws of Man that are Lawful to us, that do not deter us from worshiping God. Lets read a little from Isaiah. Isaiah 1:16-21 Wash you, make you clean; put awayrepparttar 135406 evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieverepparttar 135407 oppressed, judgerepparttar 135408 fatherless, plead forrepparttar 135409 widow.
