America Poised For Collapse by Mychal Massie

     I totally agree with Mychal Massie.  As he writes in his column yesterday, America is poised for collapse.  Americans have lost their way.  We, as a country, have forgotten God and instead are looking to politicians to save us.   Deuteronomy 8:6-19 tells us what God says about that.  He gave us the land and the prosperity we now enjoy.  He warns us of what happens if we forget Him who gives us all things:

6 "Observe the commands of the Lord your God, walking in obedience to him and revering him. For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land—a land with brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out into the valleys and hills; a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey; a land where bread will not be scarce and you will lack nothing; a land where the rocks are iron and you can dig copper out of the hills.
10 When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. 11 Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day. 12 Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down, 13 and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, 14 then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 15 He led you through the vast and dreadful wilderness, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock. 16 He gave you manna to eat in the wilderness, something your ancestors had never known, to humble and testyou so that in the end it might go well with you. 17 You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” 18 But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth,and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
19 If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed. 20 Like the nations the Lord destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the Lord your God."
        This certainly describes America today. We have forgotten God.  We have become proud, thinking we have built this country into a great nation all by ourselves and that we can take care of it on our own.  If we do not repent and return to the God who made us great, we will fall as the nations who rejected Him fell before us.  We have become a great nation because of His protection and guidance.  If we no longer seek it He will withdraw and we will see that without Him we can do nothing to save ourselves.  I pray we will see that before it is too late and return to Him with our whole hearts.

America Poised For Collapse

America stands on the very brink of collapse and I believe the indications are such that if she doesn’t collapse in my lifetime, she will in my son’s. If that scares you, it should. America is in trouble such as she has never experienced in her history and it is trouble of our own making.
I could lie to you and subscribe to falsities such as if we get rid of Obama and replace him with a “you fill in the blank” or if the Republicans gain the majority in the Senate or if blah-blah-blah. But assuming all of those things were to happen, I remain unconvinced that they would make one bit of difference.
America has lost her way and accordingly, America has lost the worldwide respect she once commanded. And no group is more aware of this than the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). 

Our Founding Fathers had a reliance upon God that they neither apologized nor retreated from. Whether we read John Adams, George Washington, or the collective works of those who fought for our independence, one cannot deny that they had a dependence upon God.
But today, the “faith of our fathers” is just that – the faith of our fathers. America has turned from “In God We Trust” to trust in evil men. And as my close friend and colleague Dr. James David Manning put it, “America no longer fears God, so therefore nations no longer fear America?
 ISIS and the other Muslim threats are rabid followers of a false prophet (Mohammed) and a false god (Allah),but they are zealots in their service to their pagan beliefs. They view America in light of what she supports, and let there be not one doubt that these pagans understand the homologation of same-sex marriage, sodomy, the wholesale slaughter of 54 million unborn children, abortion, weak politically-correct officials, ad nauseum are not the qualities of the enlightened, they are the traits of the damned.
There was a time that America prided herself on a belief in God. There was a time our government acted in accordance with the summum bonum of the people she was created to serve. Today, such beliefs are scoffed at. There was a time that when America went to war, the oppressed and threatened in the world sighed a breath of relief because they knew the God of America would vindicate them. Ask the French, Great Britain, or the other European countries to whose aid America came.
But today the media controls our battles, not the generals. Weak ineffectual leaders like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Obama have shown our Islamic enemies that America talks but doesn’t act. Globalists like George W. Bush have shown the enemy that America’s borders are nothing more than lines on paper. And they openly cheer our downfall as corrupt politicians like George W. Bush, John Boehner, et al. are eagerly willing to reward illegals with full rights and citizenship. Which means whether by outright attacks or attrition, they are positioned to do untold harm to America.
America is similar to a skeletal structure waiting for a strong wind to cause it to fall and that strong wind may well be ISIS and/or some other vulgar derivation of their genus. If (or probably more likely when) ISIS decides to make good on their promise to plant their flags on American soil, what will our so-called leadership do? Look back on the World Trade Centers and Pentagon attacks of 9/11 and consider how quickly America went from waving flags to cursing and blaming and posturing for political gain. Consider how the media undermined the effort than and how they ignore the threat today.
The Second Book of Chronicles 7:14 provides the prescription needed for America to return to a healthy state, but I am confident that just as people will scoff at this piece they will certainly scoff at that. “The fool has said in his heart that there is no God” and even for those who feign to pretend there is a God in heaven, their actions are in accordance with the unbelievers.
