You are not alone in your ponderings of the American condition, a situation that is best described as a post-Christian mentality since the American judiciary deemed it humanly proper to enforce a separation of Biblical influences in the public places, the very places that need Biblical influences the most. Even the more spiritual founding agents of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution declared the absolute necessity of having properly Biblically influenced individuals in places of representation, or the 'experiment' fails. Since 1962, we have seen the beginnings of that very failure; and it does not appear to be getting any better.

Why, many have asked, is this so? Why does it seem more impossible now to invoke that prayer of repentance (2 Chronicles 7:13, 14) than in times past?

"When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, "if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."

Why, indeed, does America seem on the edge of not being able to represent the best the world has to offer when so many things are running contrary to the 'common good?' The answer is simple: America is not united in seeking the things of the LORD, the Almighty Sovereign. So, against the thinking of so many that would say that America is not under judgment, none can deny that in the world schemes of things America is on the receiving end of so many diverse natural disasters that no man can explain it.

If Americans are desirous of regaining the pre-eminence of its former stature, it desperately needs to return to the Truth that gave America its place in the world. Failing that, America will take its place in the closing moments of the current age just before the impending judgments of the next age.

The Almighty Eternal Sovereign has said (paraphrased), " I will not strive with man forever," a promise that is seen to be giving notice that as each individual has a defined lifespan, so too does the composite lifespan of a rebellious people seem to have limited options of repentance before judgment falls.

We are prepared for the inevitability of that judgment by reading in many places of the Holy Bible that the world is going to have to give an account for its rebellion, the culmination of which will be like no other time in history. No one escapes, except by having a saving relationship with Yeshua HaMashiach.

PM Netanyahu has brought Israel to that edge of world destiny, just as it is prophesied in the Holy Bible. Israel is being prepared in conformance to Moses' Song in Deuteronomy, and further declared in Ezekiel and Isaiah, as well as other places. The world is lined up to be judged for its efforts to keep Israel from its destiny; and if America does not snap out of it, America will have its own place in line for blowing the best opportunity of any nation in history to do what is right before the LORD.

So, you see; your questions by this estimation may seem rhetorical, but your second-to-last closing line about failure being an apparent inevitability does not need very long to be proven. America's actions this coming September should help in discerning the truth. Only in honoring the WORD of the LORD in Yeshua HaMashiach does America stand a chance and it is apparent by its progressive leanings in political choices that chance is likely already blown.
