Daniel, Joseph, and Jeremiah are examples of individuals being blessed during national judgments.
Where the United States as a nation went wrong is that it did not define freedom as freedom to do the will of God or to keep to God’s moral principles. In attempting to leave a national church in England, and avoid creating a new one, there was left a chink in the armor that is missing.
Freedom is not the freedom to do anything…wantonly kill, rape, pillage, steal, make profits off of war, be a pediphile, market drugs, market death and other negative things that do not qualify as “love thy neighbor as thyself.” The current societal working operative definition of freedom has been perverted into a definition in which a person is free to do anything, including murder and steal; this is not a biblical definition of freedom.
The early settlers understood a different definition of freedom. They came for the freedom to worship God.
But like happened so often in the history of Israel, when those original leaders and founders who understood and lived the covenant with God died off, then the nation moved into idolatry, rebellion, and rejection of God’s laws.
That is basically what has happened to the United States. Of course, there are individuals who seek to follow the Lord. But at a national level, it is evident the United States has rejected God.
This is where Russia has the upper hand and will win. Russia is against trangenderism. At a national level, Russis believes in Orthodox Christianity.
In the United States, you can have government officials who say their faith is a private matter. They say they are believers while they vote for abortion or push the toxic vaxx in the name of what they call…this is what Jesus would want.
The founding Fathers of the United States were Christians or deists. They certainly would not comprehend that their understanding of freedom of religion would be transformed by progressives to mean freedom to cut off body parts of children, kill babies, commit pedophilia and rape and peddle drugs.
There used to be something called the spirit of the law and the letter of the law. The letter of the law is supposed to embody what the spirit of the law means. When the two agree in righteousness, there are righteous and just laws. However, in the United States, the spirit of the law has been divorced from the letter of the law. Progressives try to maniupulate the letter of the law and manipulate definitions to bring about the changes they want, which is to legalize crime so they can freely do their criminal activities without the nuisance of lawsuits and consequences.
Ezekiel 18:24 But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.
25 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal?
26 When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die.
27 Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.
28 Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
29 Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the Lord is not equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal?
30 Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord God. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.
This article link below indicates that Russia knows this is a fight for the very moral Christian foundation of civilization itself. That is definitely not why the United States is in the fight, as a matter of fact, it is the exact opposite. The corrupted leadership in the United States wants to spread its corruption even further and its goal is Russia. I’m talking at the national level. I know there are individual Christians, but they are not the majority in leadership. We have satanists and globalists and big bankers and the military industrial complex running things. The Ukrainian war to them is an investment opportunity. The United States will not succeed because it is not fighting a just war. Russia, in focusing on saving Christian values, is fighting a just war.
