God Punishes Nations
By: John Rhine
A wise and just God presides
over the destiny of nations.
When a nation sins, it often
time receives corrective punishment, as God sees fit.
The Bible contains many examples
of nations, some times mighty and powerful nations,
being brought down by the Hand
It is no different in modern
Germany is a recent example.
The holocaust was a terrible
and sinful thing.
Germany, under Hitler, murdered
13,000,000 Jews, Gypsies and anti-Nazis during World War II.
God punished them by dividing
their country in two,
and for fifty years East Germany
lived under Communist rule: their freedoms nonexistent.
The punishment is much more
severe if the nation is closely aligned with God.
The history of Israel is a perfect
example of a country being blessed
while they walked with God
and much more severely punished,
then other nations,
when they turned their back
America was founded as a Christian
There is no question,
God had a clear hand in America's
from God's instruction to the
Apostle Paul to take the Gospel west,
to the invention of movable
type and getting the Bible into the hands of the common man,
to the spread of the Gospel
to the first European settlers
arriving on North American shores in the 1600's
to the war for independence
in the late 1700's;
we see a long series of miracles
to make what happened, happen...
Since the time of Samuel the
prophet in 1120 B. C.
until the founding of this nation
the pagan idea of man and government had dominated the world scene.
Our Declaration of Independence
our United States Constitution
to be a Christian nation,
the first and only truly Christian
nation in the history of the world...
We have been blessed!
We are the work of God, the
We Christians have forgotten
the covenant of our fathers and the God in our history.
The fact is,
in the history of the human
America is the first country
to recognize man's inalienable rights,
because of her covenant with
In the 1900's we lost our way,
we abandon our Biblical roots
slowly at first and much more
distinctly in the last half of the twentieth century;
we have turned our back on God.
We have lost all,
or will soon lose all the attending
benefits of Christian civilization such as law,
absolute moral standards,
a limited government,
a sound economy,
and any vintage of liberty that
we still maintain.
I believe there is a direct
link between abortion and gun control; let me explain.
We are Guilty of Sacrificing
60,000,000 babies to the god of Choice;
and the one true God,
the God of our Founding Fathers,
He is allowing our freedoms
to be eroded.
Our property rights are all
really owns our property
if we don't pay the amount of
property tax they decide we owe them each year.
The right to keep all our earnings
slowly at first,
Federal, State and Local government
take forty percent of our earnings;
they set the ever increasing percentage.
We can't use our property as
without first getting permission
from multiple zoning boards.
Ours is turning into a police
Kent State, Ruby Ridge, Waco,
Little Havana (Elian), Elizabethtown (FBI drill),
public schools strip examinations
of teen age girls without parental permission,
unannounced and unwarranted
raids of private homes
(in the name of the war on drugs)
and many, many more government
initiated happenings; some disastrous, others
As a final corrective punishment...
God's wakeup call,
so to speak,
we are about to lose our most
our Right to Keep and Bear Arms..
20,000 gun laws already on the
registration is next,
look to history for guidance
concerning this matter...
In the history of the world,
weapons registration has always
been followed by confiscation,
Our Right to Keep and Bear Arms
is the only inalienable right,
recognized by our Founding Fathers
after the American revolution,
that gives us citizens,
the means to protect other
rights from further government abuse;
this right is being taken away
and many of us don't seem to care.
Once it's gone,
we will become slaves and no
nation on earth will come to our rescue.
without a free America,
all other nations will again
revert back to the tyranny of the past,
their citizens becoming slaves
and surfs to a ruling secular elite,
just as they were prior to the
American Revolution ...
We will also!
Fellow citizens, heed God's
Turn our nation,
back to its original Christian
it's not too late.
Our nation will prosper or decline
in direct proportion
to our selection of leaders
who are guided by the Holy Spirit.
If we fail to select God fearing
leaders our destiny will surely be as that of the Roman Empire.
Will any of you censure me as
an innovator for my beliefs?
I care not!
The truth has never been popular,
especially in this age,
where people feed on fantasy
and run from reality.
Since the truth is often painful,
we must possess courage in order
to face reality.
We must be willing to know the
Whatever anguish of spirit it
Problems do not pass away,
they must be solved.
Crisis do not calm themselves,
they must be conquered.
We must face the cruel reality
that if we are not willing to
change what is happening in our country,
at the ballot box;
we will sooner or later,
need to face it with armed resistance;
or complete tyranny will follow.
We are Sacrificing Our Young,
to the god of Choice
Present abortion policy
our brewing trouble over defending
our Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms
will one day explode into full
scale civil war!
We must be prepared;
munitions must be stored...
I go on the supposition that
our current national structure is near an end.
I pray for God's help and guidance.
