Deuteronomy 28:15-16 KJV
But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.
Is America cursed? The media argues the point whenever any well known preacher says it. How dare any man, even a preacher, to say that God would judge us! But God defines what is a cursed people in Deuteronomy 28. All we have to do is see it.
Vexation and Rebuke Vs 20 Pestilence Vs 21
Americans are not well liked in the world
Illness Vs 22 Sword and drought Vs 22
Americans have illnesses that are known only in
wealthy Western cultures
Fleeing from enemies Vs 25 Scorching sun Vs 23-24
We have now left at least three battlefields before the
victory was secured: Viet Nam, First Gulf and Iran
No allies Vs 26 The botch of Egypt Vs 27
Fewer and fewer nations of the world will side with us.
Madness and blindness Vs 28-29
Americans are hopelessly blind to the course we are currently
taking. We are blind to the curses we endure right now.
Immorality and divorce Vs 30-31
America's divorce rate, and America's tolerance, even glorying
in our immorality is a sure sign of judgment. It is so bad that even
preachers now justify divorce and compromise the Scriptures
to allow for divorced men to serve in the pastorate.
The scattering of the family Vs 32, 41
A mark of our blindness; we encourage our children to grow up
and move so far away we only see them infrequently, if at all.
We marry them off to people whose homes are so far away that
we inevitably split some family.
The overtaking of our land by other nations Vs 33-34, 43
Go to almost any convenience store, service station or motel in America
and it becomes obvious that we are giving our business away to people
who have no intention of integrating among us but only to take our wealth
and give it to their homeland.
Weakness Vs 35-37
If we use this allegorically we may easily see that America is becoming
a weak and tired people, We are losing our ability to be a leader in the world.
Poor economy, little product Vs 38-40, 44
Too much of American product is made in another land. We live as a nation on
that money we have borrowed from nations that are philosophically our enemies.
Recently our own military considered purchasing aircraft made by other countries.
Even when we do make a product in the United States much of it is outsourced to
businesses outside of America.
Ten out of the fourteen curses are easily identified with America's current circumstances. No question about it; America is cursed.
