“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice:
but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn”

This is the caliber of people we need at the helm of our nation!!!
When it comes to knowing the best course for a country to take, or for an individual, the wisest and absolute best advice you can get comes from God’s Word (the Holy Bible), in whatever God says on any given subject.
We are told in the Bible (in Proverbs 9:10) that: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”
In Proverbs 29:2, we are told: “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”
Folks, look around you and read the handwriting on the wall! As God once spoke to King Belshazzar, of the once great Babylonian empire:
“MENE, MENE, TEKEL, and PHARSIN”
This is the interpretation: MENE, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end; TEKEL, you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting; PERES, your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.[
As history shows, that very night, the great and mighty empire of Babylon fell.
Likewise we are there ourselves, folks, as many nations who have gone before us; and may God help us if we can’t see the handwriting on the wall; and discern that our nations also is in serious trouble today, as these people who are at the helm of our country, who are directing and making the decisions for our nation’s future, and the future of generations to come, are about as far away from God and His ways as anyone can be!
In fact, as Billy Graham once said, “If God doesn’t judge our nation, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”
As just one example, this is how far our society today has drifted away from the God of the Bible, in that for years now, for several generations, as it is even today, we have young people are who are being taught in our public schools, and in our secular colleges and universities, this nonsense called “situation ethics,” which says the ends justifies the means.
This is our problem, in that we’ve had several generations now who have grown up where their only moral compass, that is driving their decisions, is not based on anything the Bible says; but rather it is based upon something called “Political Correctness,” where everyone makes decisions based upon whatever the current flavor of the month happens to be, according to the ever changing winds of the political atmosphere at the time; or they make their decisions based soley upon what seems good and right to them, personally… with no attention given whatsoever as to what God might have to say, or what the Bible teaches.
So consequently, we have politicians who get elected to office by saying what they think the people want to hear, but they never follow through and keep their promises.
As just one example of what I’m talking about, just listen to the current man who now sits in the White House.
Listen to these promises that he made in the past, in order to get elected; and then compare that to what he has done in the resent passage of several pieces of legislation, which are costing us literally hundreds of billions of dollars, where we didn’t have the open forums and opportunity to review and read about them, and what they contained, as he promised; but rather they were rammed through both houses, without even our legislators having the opportunity to understand or read what was in them… and in doing so, Obama broke everyone of his promises to the American people, regarding transparency and openness.
Now mind you, this is also the same guy who says that he is a Christian:
Here is another huge reason why our nation is in trouble today; and it has to do with the way we are raising our children, and what they are being taught in our public school system today.
We are totally dropping the ball here, folks, in that our entire public educational system, at all levels, instead of teaching (as we once did) about what the Bible says, about the Ten Commandments, and the difference between right and wrong; we are instead teaching our children that belief in God, and the knowledge of His Word (The Bible), that both are absolutely irrelevant to anything that is of any consequence or importance in their life… and as I’ve said, this has been going on for several generations!
So is it any wonder that our nation is where it is today?
After having had several generations that have been taught this nonsense, we can plainly see the results in that we have a nation today, where more so than at any other time in our history, we can say that the blind are leading the blind… and if we aren’t careful, just as the Bible warns will happen, we will all fall into the ditch, if we fail to wake up and repent!
Let us not be deceived by lying spirits and corrupt politicians, with hidden agendas; but rather let’s stop this present downward spiral that our nations is taking, and let’s get righteous men and women in positions of leadership, who are there to represent our interest, instead of their own, and who also have a personal relationship and reverence for the God of the Bible!
