  2. 2. Does the Bible Talk About America? • Matthew 21:42-43 • 42) Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes? • 43)Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
  3. 3. Psalm 33:12 • 12) Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. • Is this America?

  5. 5. Little History Lesson 1606 Virginian Charter • To deduce a colony in in propagating of Christian Religion to such People, as yet live in Darkness and miserable Ignorance of the true Knowledge and Worship of God New England : 1620 • To advance the in enlargement of Christian Religion, to the Glory of God Almighty

  8. 8. Yale University William & Mary College Anyone?
  9. 9. HARVARD UNIVERSITY • 1636, Let every Student be plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is, to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life, John 17:3 and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom, as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and Learning. (This is that foundation, the Chief Corner Stone – Jesus, that they rejected) • Every one shall so exercise himself in reading the Scriptures twice a day, that he shall be ready to give such an account of his proficiency therein, both in Theoretical observations of Language and Logic, and in practical and spiritual truths, according to his ability; seeking the entrance of the word giveth light, it giveth understandings to the simple, Psalm 119:130.
  10. 10. 1692 the college of William and Mary stated their goal • That youth may be piously enacted in good letters and manners and that the Christian faith may be propagated to the Glory of God Almighty." YALE UNIVERSITY In 1701, Yale College was founded as a place “wherein Youth may be instructed in the Arts and Sciences [and] through the blessing of Almighty God may be fitted for Public employment both in Church and Civil State.”
  11. 11. YALE COLLEGE Cont… "All scholars shall live religious, godly and blameless lives according to the rules of God's Word, diligently reading the Holy Scriptures, the fountain of light and truth; and constantly attend upon all the duties of religion, both in public and secret. Seeing God is the giver of all wisdom, every scholar, besides private or secret prayer, where all we are bound to ask wisdom shall be present morning and evening at public prayer in the hall at the accustomed hour." The primary goal, as outlined by the founders, stated, "Every student shall consider the main end of his study to wit to know God in Jesus Christ and answerable to lead a Godly, sober life."
  12. 12. PRINCETON UNIVERSITY
  13. 13. PRINCETON UNIVERSITY • 1746, Originally called "The College of New Jersey", was founded in Princeton, New Jersey by the Presbyterian Church. Until 1902, every president of Princeton was a minister. • The University's official motto was, "Under God's Power She Flourishes." The Reverend Jonathan Dickinson, who was its first president, said of Princeton, "Cursed be all learning that is contrary to the cross of Christ." • To confess our unworthiness of the least of His favors, and to offer our fervent supplication to the God of all grace...to cause the knowledge of Christianity to spread over all the earth.
  14. 14. Noah Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary – First Edition In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government, ought to be instructed.... the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people...."
  15. 15. Continental Congress May 17th, 1776, A Day of Fasting and Prayer • a day of humiliation, fasting, and prayer; that we may with united hearts confess and bewail our manifold sins and transgressions and, by a sincere repentance and amendment of life,…and through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, obtain His pardon and forgiveness.” • What would happen if Congress was to do that today??
  16. 16. DELAWARE STATE CONSTITUTION OF 1776 • "I _______, do profess faith in God the Father, and in Jesus Christ His only Son, and in the Holy Ghost, One God, blessed for evermore; and I do acknowledge the holy scriptures of the Old Testament and New Testament to be given by Divine Inspiration.
  17. 17. Continental Congress: 1780 Thanksgiving Proclamation • to be observed as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer; …and to offer our fervent supplications to the God of all grace; that it may please him to pardon our heinous transgressions and incline our hearts for the future to keep all his laws that it may please him still to afford us the blessing of health; …build up his churches in their most holy faith and to cause the knowledge of Christianity to spread over all the earth
  18. 18. This is why… • God blessed us as a country. • Because of what we were founded upon • We are blessed coming in and blessed going out. • We are the country that sent most of the missionaries out to the world
  19. 19. But what has happened? • Psalm 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. • Proverbs 14:34 Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people."
  20. 20. We read in Matthew 21:42-43 • 42) Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes? • 43) Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
  21. 21. Listen.. • I love this Nation… • We are living on the blessings of our founding fathers. • It’s only the Mercy of God that it’s so good • But America is in Sin… • This nation is REJECTING GOD!
  22. 22. "Why do people reject Jesus?
  23. 23. UNBELIEF • One of the most popular reasons is Unbelief. • They have created their own idols whether by hand or mental image. They are willingly unwilling to change their mind and are close- minded beyond belief. They believe anything as long as it does not involve Jesus Christ or Christianity. • Although their unbelief does not negate reality, it will cloud the truth from their hearts forever.
  24. 24. “I don’t need Jesus” • Some people do not think that they need a savior. • These people consider themselves to be “basically good” and do not realize that they, like all people, are sinners and can’t come to God on their own terms. • Those who reject Christ will never stand before God and plead their own case on their own merits.
  25. 25. “What will people think?” • The fear of social rejection • They are concerned with their status among their peers than doing God’s will:
  26. 26. APATHY • There are some people who simply don’t care. • These people simply don’t care where they go for eternity. • They don’t care about God, Christ, Morals, Ethics, anything. They care about nothing but themselves. Apathy is rooted in selfishness. • They are so carefree and caught up in their own selfish world that they have no thought of anything.
  27. 27. Okay, what do I have to give up? • Some reject Jesus because of what they have to give up. Some people just resist! • Many people are simply resisting the Holy Spirit’s attempts to convict them. • Stephen, in the bible said “You men who are stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears are always resisting the Holy Spirit...”
  28. 28. Isaiah 26:9 9) With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
  29. 29. America does not want to hear! • That judgment comes when sin takes over a nation • Is there a backdoor that God will overlook our sin? NO
  30. 30. There is a total denial of this… • If we just ignore this • It’s like this bird • If we just pacify our own hearts that it wont happen. • But know that we are in the path of destruction…
  31. 31. Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 9) What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. Ever heard the statement History repeats itself… 10) Is there anything of which one can say, "Look! This is something new"? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time.
  32. 32. Another History Lesson The Great Depression? • Let’s look back… • They said before the Great Depression… • Poverty will be banished • Society was rich • The market is great and promising • Even though there was Prohibition. There was more drinking then ever before • They said that every thing is fine
  33. 33. But then the Stock Market Crashed!
  34. 34. • Fred Bell was a wealthy businessman but was reduced to sell apples after the Wall Street Crash to feed his family. • In just days people that were rich, became beggars. Multi Millionaires became paupers
  35. 35. Shortly After the Great Depression • Devastating weather changes • Storms and water droughts, sweep entire parts of the country • The Dust bowl came upon our farmers • They had no money and no food to feed their families • What happened? They turned to God! • What’s happening today?
  36. 36. You say This can’t happen to us…
  37. 37. Romans 1:21-24 21) Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23) And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24) Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:
  38. 38. But today…we say… • I don’t need God • I’m too busy being entertained • Everything is fine • I don’t need God, I’ve got my homework, I have television or the internet • Some say I got a job • I don’t need God • I’ve got things to do • Where are most people right now? • They could care less about God’s judgments
  39. 39. What has happened? • Psalm 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. • Proverbs 14:34 Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people."
  40. 40. Jeremiah 8:8-9 8) How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain. 9) The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?
  41. 41. Jeremiah 8:10-13 10) Therefore will I give their wives unto others (divorce increased), and their fields to them that shall inherit them: for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest every one deals falsely. 11) For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. 12) Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the LORD. 13) I will surely consume them, saith the LORD: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them.
  42. 42. Nov 1926…A book on the Great Depression on the motion picture stated this… • “The motion picture more any form of entertainment has created a reckless lack of appreciation of true values” • What can we put in the place of Motion pictures as destroying our values? • Bible says they were not ashamed
  43. 43. 1920’ movies were not Godly movies…Did you know that • In the 20’s and 30’s.. Full frontal nudity • Homosexual acts and lesbian acts were in black and white movies. • …history reproduces itself.
  44. 44. The Weeping Prophet Jeremiah 6:10-12 10) To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it. 11) Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days. 12) And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD.
  45. 45. Again…Jeremiah 6:13 -15 13) For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness (you never have enough); and from the prophet even unto the priest every one deals falsely. 14) They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. 15) Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.
  46. 46. Jeremiah 6:16 -17 16) Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. 17) Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.

"Yes, we will come to you, for you are the LORD our God. 23) Surely the idolatrous commotion on the hills and mountains is a deception; surely in the LORD our God is the salvation of Israel.
