The Day America Dies
will be better than when America was born!
 the day of death {is better than} than the day of one's birth.
Ecclesiastes 7:1
Lest I be accused of being a traitor and an Eyore regarding America,  let it be known that there is only one other place that I would live other than in America.  I know that someday I will be living in a mansion God's country John 14:1-3 (not Montana - Colorado, etc.) for ever & for all eternity. But until then, I am here - an American who, up to this day, has enjoyed a lot of the quiet and peaceable life.  God has been good to me & to my family - I have not had any outwardly governmental dealings - at least not like those we are about to face.  The government has messed with my life in regards to regulations, licenses, permissions, rules and regulations, etc. but they have not yet told me the things that BY LAW, they are about to tell us.
For kings, and for all that are in authority
that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
I Timothy 2:2

I am loyal to the Old America, but I am not loyal to the New America.  In fact, I grieve at this new emerging America. The New America knows less than ever before, the difference between right from wrong!  The New America does not know the natural from the unnatural!  The New America is more concerned about it's own present happiness than the pursuit of happiness!  The New America is not God's America.  The New America has replaced God's voice with that of the Devil's voice!

Note: I am not giving up and letting things go down easily - don't get me wrong!  The Old America still has some roots here and there & I plan to water those Old American Flowers before I ever water these 'weeds' of the New America.  Part of my frustration is that when I was young, I did not appreciate the freedoms and opportunities that were available to me, then.  In fact, I was quite rebellious to this country in my older teen years - shame on me and shame on us.  If only I could have those years back!

More and more each Independence Day, I grieve when I consider the fireworks.  I see people who most of them have no idea as to what is taking place right under their noses within this country.  They are so blinded by the works of the Devil, people today don't even see what is happening within their own home and family.

When I consider the old songs of America - I no longer get caught up in the words of freedom and liberty or in the marvelous melodies and stirring rhythms of John Philip Sousa. - I grieve because I know that music represents Old America today.  That old music does represent a great past - a powerful past - a wonderful past!  The music of the New America is not the music of Old America.  The words of the New America are not the words of the Old America.  The people of the New America are not the people of the Old America.

We are witnessing the birth of a New America - the Old America is nearly dead and gone - it just has not been buried yet - but it soon will be.  The older generations will be soon all dead and buried - the King James Bible will soon be buried with its newly given status of 'illegal hate literature' - the children will soon be grown up to close those bible-believing churches who spoiled the fun of their childhood.  It wouldn't surprise me to see children turning their parents in to the law for their personal home attempts at 'brain-washing' the children into a Bible that they don't like or even want around their house.

The New America  has become materialistically wealthy, self-destructive, disillusioned, disappointed and has declined in morality and faith!

This new America is full with
Material Wealth!

But such material advantages have not brought the American people any closer to achieving the American dream.  Larger salaries, bigger homes, comfortable retirement and more stuff have not made for a happy and God fearing people!  Luke 8:14  And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.  Mark 4:19: And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

This new Americas is plagued with an array of
Self-Destructive Behaviors!

This new America is disillusioned with the
Institutions Within the Society!
(The White House, Congress, Supreme Court, the News Media, large business corporations and even organized religion: (not such a loss, but they turn directly to Satan's, instead)!

This new America is disappointed in the
Conduct of Their Fellow Citizens!

This new America has declined drastically in
Morality and Faith!

Like Dr. Gipp continues to preach to us - we should still celebrate the independence that was fought for and won by our forefathers - we should still continue to learn more about those early years of when Old America was first born - and we should still pray & fight, hoping that we could return to the ways of Old America.

But I also know that Christians can have no confidence for that Old America and for a 'better future for our children' unless we and they first seek God's face - a personal contact with His Voice - so that we can 'teach transgressors thy ways and sinners shall be converted unto thee. Psalm 51:13Thus 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. Jeremaih 6:16

We need to present our bodies "a living sacrifice holy, acceptable unto God, which is our reasonable service."  We should be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.  Romans 12:1,2.

So why is the death of America something to look forward to?

Note what happened and what will happen again to God's own people when they rejected God's words, as America is doing at this present time.

Jeremiah 6:17b-30

... But they said, We will not hearken.
18:Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19: Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.
20: To what purpose cometh there to me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country?  your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me.
21: Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will lay stumblingblocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together shall fall upon them; the neighbour and his friend shall perish.
22: Thus saith the LORD, Behold, a people cometh from the north country, and a great nation shall be raised from the sides of the earth.
23: They shall lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roareth like the sea; and they ride upon horses, set in array as men for war against thee, O daughter of Zion.
24: We have heard the fame thereof: our hands wax feeble: anguish hath taken hold of us, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
25: Go not forth into the field, nor walk by the way; for the sword of the enemy and fear is on every side.
26: O daughter of my people, gird thee with sackcloth, and wallow thyself in ashes: make thee mourning, as for an only son, most bitter lamentation: for the spoiler shall suddenly come upon us.
27: I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people, that thou mayest know and try their way.
28: They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all corrupters.
29: The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melteth in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away.
30: Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the LORD hath rejected them.

Note that that we, as children of God / sons of God, He will not forsake us.  We receive a greater blessing than His own people because of our faith in Jesus Christ John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.and Rev 19:7-9   Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8: And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 9: And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

To forsake us would be for God to forsake Himself!

Gal 3:26   For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Romans 8:14   For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
Philippians 2:15   That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
I John 3:1,2   Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

But the nation of America is in for some tough times!
Psalm 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
Malachi 3:9  Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.
Jeremiah 9:9  Shall I not visit them for these things?  saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? (Also in Jer 5:9 and Jer 5:29)
Jeremiah 7:28  But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that obeyeth not the voice of the LORD their God, nor receiveth correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.
Jeremiah 18:10  If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.

He will not take his own children through that most famous time of suffering yet to come - The Tribulation!

Whether or not we are pushed nearer and nearer to the tribulation and receive more persecution within our own country, or whether we are taken out of here in the rapture, we know that we will soon be seeing and entering the Kingdom of God more and more as a Christian, either through the spiritual blessings of our earthly sufferings or in our physical heavenly rapture out of here directly into the Kingdom of God!

Suffering pushes us off the fence onto one side or another.
Suffering makes us finally cross the Jordan or back home.

Nor more fence sitting!
No more wading on the shores of the Jordan!

Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed;
but let him glorify God on this behalf.
1 Peter 4:16

For it is better, if the will of God be so,
that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
1 Peter 3:17

But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye:
and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
1 Peter 3:14

For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently?
but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
1 Peter 2:20

If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
2 Timothy 2:12

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
2 Timothy 3:12

Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God,
than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
Hebrews 11:25

Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them;
and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.
Hebrews 13:3

And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it;
or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
1 Corinthians 12:26

For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God,
who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
1 Timothy 4:10

For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed:
for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able
to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
2 Timothy 1:12

 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him,
but also to suffer for his sake;
Philippians 1:29

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man:
but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able;
but will with the temptation also make a way to escape,
that ye may be able to bear it.
1 Corinthians 10:13

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ;
if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Romans 8:17

Why wait for the coming sufferings to get you to move now?

What does it take to get you off the fence, now?
What does it take to get you to cross the Jordan, now?
What does it take for you to fight for God's Words, now?
What does it take for you to Get Into That Bible and READ IT, now!

You must get your fire sparked and lit from your personal Bible reading (Ps:119:130: The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.) BEFORE any preacher is going to be able to give you more wood to build up that fire that only God can give.

Maybe when New American finally makes it against the law to have your Bible,
you will wish you read it more when you could have!

Maybe when they say you can't come here to Touchet Baptist church anymore,
that you will wish you had come more often when you could have!

Maybe when they say you can't witness at work anymore,
you will wish you had witnessed when you could have!

Maybe when they say you can't have religious bumper stickers on your car,
you will wish you had one when you could have!

Maybe when they say you can't go downtown to sing,
you will wish you had gone down and sung when you could have!

Maybe when they say you can't give out tracts anymore - anywhere -
you will wish you had handed them out when you could have!

Maybe when they won't allow you to run your family like the Bible says
and be the godly dad you should have been,
you will wish you had when you could have!

Maybe when they won't allow you to be the godly woman to your husband
and a godly mother to your children at home,
you will wish you had when you could have.

Well, the day is coming!  But right now, it isn't here yet!  We can still joyfully celebrate the birthday of our country - but someday, when this country officially dies - we will glorify God more than ever before - either face to face after the rapture, or through earthly sufferings!

OR - will you shame him by running and hiding!

Which will it be for you?
