Abrahamic Covenants Fulfilled
Just to what extent has Almighty
God fulfilled his promises to the descendants of Joseph
in these latter years since 1800 A.D. promises of "the precious fruits brought forth by the sun, ...
the chief things of the ancient mountains, ...
and the precious things of the earth"?
Said Charles M. Schwab, steel magnate, before the Massachusetts
Bankers Association, :
"Our United States has been endowed by God with everything
to make it and keep it the foremost industrial and commercial nation of the world."
Although the birthright has come to the British Commonwealth and the United States,
yet the other tribes share in the blessings.
Next in order in per capita income were Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
Most Gentile nations have from one tenth to one fiftieth the income!
Now how did they come into
possession of all this vast wealth of the earth?
Did they acquire it through their own human wisdom, foresight, energy, ability and power?
Let United States President Abraham Lincoln answer:
"We find ourselves," he said, "in the peaceful possession of the fairest portion of the earth, as regards fertility of soil, extent of territory, and salubrity of climate...
We ... find ourselves the legal inheritors of these fundamental blessings.
We toiled not in the acquirement or the establishment of them."
Again, in his proclamation of April 30, 1863, for a Nation-wide day of fasting and prayer, this great president said:
"It is the duty of nations, as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God... and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.
We have been the recipients of the choicest blessings of heaven.
We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity.
We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation ever has grown; but we have forgotten God!
We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us;
We have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own."
Abraham Lincoln knew these great
material blessings had not been earned,
but had been given to the people by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel.
And the nations should face the facts today and know that the United States and the British peoples have been given all this vast unprecedented material wealth because God promised it, unconditionally, to Abraham. And he promised it to Abraham because Abraham obeyed God, kept God's laws and commandments.
The birthright blessing was denied
the forefathers after Moses' day
because they refused to live by the laws of Almighty God.
And today God warns Britain and the United States, through many prophecies in the books of Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Micah, and numerous others whose writings are preserved in the Bible that unless the people of this generation repent of sins, and turn to him with fasting, and with weeping, and earnest prayer, he 'will destroy their cities, all their fortresses, by the hand of the foreign sword; that he will punish them at the hand of a cruel one; that the people shall be invaded, defeated, reduced to slaves!
God help these nations to heed that warning and wake up in time!
