|"How many accounts do we read in Holy Writ where God lifts His hand of protection and actually inspires His enemies to strike His people as a judgment. It is a constant theme in the Scriptures and yet we act as though the Lord is incapable, unwilling, or that this aspect of the Lord is somehow inconsistent with Biblical teaching. Yet, God's word declares, "For I am the Lord, I do not change (Malachi 3:6a)." Obviously, God does personally, directly, and forthrightly kill and bring sickness upon people who refuse to repent. He doesn't just lift His hand of protection and allow tragedy to strike. He often in the Scriptures is personally involved in striking down His enemies and bringing chastisements upon His people. To teach otherwise is flat out heresy, false doctrine, and a complete misrepresentation of the Bible and the righteous and just character of our Lord. Can there be any wonder why there is still no fear of God in our land that will bring us to depart from our wicked ways?" so says Rusty Lee Thomas of Operation Save America in response to criticism leveled against them when they declared that the twin towers massacre was a sign of God's judgment on the USA.
I do not quibble when I take exception to his comments. God's judgment comes in two distinct forms.
Judgment #1: God "turns over" His enemies and removes His protective grace. Without the protective shield of God's grace, evil becomes the context for those who God has "turned over." This process is described by the Apostle Paul in Romans 1:21"Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. 28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."
Judgment #2: As so aptly described by Operation Save America, God literally becomes the arm gripping the sword that destroys His enemies and rains destruction on the land they occupy: "Who was it that rained strange fire from the sky that incinerated Sodom? Who was it that enveloped the earth with a flood and wiped out the entire population on the earth, save those on Noah's ark? Who was it that drowned Pharaoh's army in the Red Sea? Who was it that sent an angel that massacred 185,000 Syrian soldiers in one night? Who was it that struck Ananias and Sapphira dead for lying to the Holy Ghost? Who was it that sent an angel and struck King Herod dead while the worms feasted upon him? And who was it that warned in the book of The Revelation, "Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that women Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and beguile My servants to commit sexual immorality and to eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sick bed and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation unless they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death. And all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. (Revelation 2:20-23)"
I think it is presumptuous to declare that God has become the active agent in these terrorist actions directed against the United States of America. But one thing is absolutely certain: one way or another, the Judgment of God has begun against this nation.
Mark well the things being said about God by the Federal government of the USA. Note that the god invoked by officials in that context is a god that does not shine light on the God defined in Holy Scripture. Instead a new "federal" god is being declared there, one who shares one of the names of the God of Abraham but who lacks the attributes of the God described in Holy Scripture.
There is a name for what is being done by the officials of the federal government of the USA. That name is idolatry. Logic requires it to be said that those who collaborate with those who preach the federal government god, become idolaters after them.Click here to learn about the Free Church Movement in the USA.
