I heard on TV that Obama wanted everyone to talk about Obamacare over their Thanksgiving day meal. I have to say that I listened while my family, obediently, did just that. I don’t think the results of my family’s discussion were what Obama had in mind. They decided, unanimously, that it was socialist, ridiculous, too expensive, and they wanted nothing to do with it. Besides, who is going to pay for the subsidies that a lot of people will get? The people who make too much money to get them, that’s who.
The American government already gives out too many subsidies including money to foreign countries that hate us, to farmers not to grow crops or to grow corn for ethanol (which is very expensive and is not good for gas burning engines), to sugar growers, etc.. I could go on and on. Financially, this country cannot afford another subsidy. WE ARE GOING BROKE ALREADY!! without adding more fuel to the fire.
I read another article on http://www.evenatthedoors.com/blog/2010/03/18/the-decline-and-fall-of-america-redux-and-ezekiel-38-39/ that makes me believe that America will indeed decline but not just because of it’s debt and other things that will effect the whole world, particularly Israel. It may be a part of a bigger plan by someone bigger than all of us. Part of it is quoted below.
“Recent events have led me to believe that America may not only be on the decline economically but is also becoming politically unwilling to protect Israel. Our current government seems intent on increasing deficit spending which will lead our nation to economic impotence both nationally and globally. The unrelenting obsession with passing healthcare legislation regardless of its deleterious impact on the economy and future of America is perplexing. Environmental and Immigration policies of this government will further weaken the U.S. economy and is equally disconcerting. I can find no logical answers as to why our government is disregarding public opinion on these economic issues and pressing ahead even if it means political suicide for many members of the ruling party. It may be that President Obama thinks America’s sins against minorities throughout its history need to be atoned for and one way to do this is to weaken its free market system so that a socialist system might replace it. He did choose to sit under a pastor for twenty years who spoke against America’s faults. Michele Obama made the statement “for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.” in regards to the acceptance and support of her husband’s presidential quest by the American people. However, there may be a much deeper reason why America is pursuing what appears to be economic ruin.
It may be God’s unseen hand that is leading America down this path in order to fulfill His prophetic will concerning the nation of Israel. He used Egypt to fulfill His promise to Abraham (Genesis 15:13). He used the ungodly Chaldeans/Babylonians to perform His judgment: “For, lo, I RAISE up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwelling places that are not their’s.” (Habakkuk 1:6) I would think that Mary and Joseph had to consider their mandated trip to Bethlehem a tremendous inconvenience and probably didn’t understand what God was doing at the time. But for His prophetic purposes He used the emperor of Rome to fulfill the prophecy that the Messiah was to be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2/Luke 2:1). Thus, God could be using America’s current administration to fulfill His prophetic purpose for Israel.”
This article gave me something to think about. I hope you will think about it too.
