Is God Cursing The US Economy As Judgment On America’s Wickedness?

Posted by Job on May 4, 2008

My note regarding Bill Keller’s devotional below: There was a time when I would have replied “YES!” But if this is the case then was the Great Depression the judgment of God? If so, for what sin on this nation’s part? Did Haiti, Africa, eastern Europe, etc. anger God? If so, how? And then you have the fact that communist China is having an economic boom. The socialist EU is lifting eastern Europe out of poverty. Venezuela, Russia, and several Middle Eastern nations are experiencing great prosperity by virtue of the $120 a barrel oil prices. Does communism, socialism, Islam, and the persecution of Christians that goes on in many of these nations please God, and are they receiving God’s blessings based on it? That is why we Christians have to be very careful when dealing with these types of things. The irony is that Keller himself has presented that message in the past when he stated that he doubted that Hurricane Katrina was God’s judgment against the city of New Orleans.

How God could use the economy as an instrument of His judgment on the United
States.  God’s judgment can come in many forms.  Most people think of God’s
judgment as what we read about in the Book of Revelation when His wrath is
poured out on the world in the final days through devastating natural
disasters that will affect huge percentages of the world’s population.  We
also think of how God judged the children of Israel in the Old Testament
when He allowed their enemies to take their land and enslave them.

However today, I want to take a look at another form of God’s judgment that
is also in the Bible, but one that most people never really think about, and
that is the economy.  I personally feel that using the economy is not only
the most likely form of God’s judgment on this nation, but would be easily
the most devastating since it will affect the lives of each person in some
way.

The first issue to discuss is why would we even be talking about God’s
judgment on the United States?  My friend, you don’t need to be much of a
Bible scholar to know that this nation is not only due God’s judgment, it is
OVERDUE God’s judgment.  In the Book of Deuteronomy the Bible warns,” If you
ever forget the LORD your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down
to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed.”

As I have told you many times, the promises in God’s Word are true but so
are the warnings.  This nation was founded on the Word of God and the hope
of Jesus Christ.  God blessed this nation abundantly, but over the past 232
years we have squandered those blessings and now live in complete rebellion
to God and His Word.  Just the fact we have abandoned God and have turned to
the false gods and idols of this world, is enough for God to pronounce His
judgment on this nation!

Sadly, in addition to worshipping the false gods of the world, we are living
in utter rebellion to the Truth of God’s Word.  Sexual sin is rampant.  Men
treat other men in the most inhumane ways imaginable.  People worldwide turn
to drugs and alcohol for strength.  Human life that can only come from God
is no longer respected or valued.  The greatest example of that is the fact
that we legally slaughter over 4,000 innocent babies in this nation every 24
hours.  That fact alone demands God’s judgment on our nation!

As you read through the Old Testament, we see the children of Israel turn
from God to the false gods of the world.  We see them living in rebellion to
God in every way imaginable.  At some point, God says enough is enough and
pours out His wrath and judgment on Israel.  That judgment came in many
forms, but usually it was allowing the enemies of Israel to take their land
and the children of Israel into captivity.  Sadly, it was only AFTER the
judgment of God fell that the people would repent and turn back to the God
of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

PLEASE HEAR ME CLEARLY.  IF GOD SPARED NOT HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE FROM HIS
JUDGMENT, WHY WOULD ANYONE EXPECT THAT HE WILL SPARE THIS WICKED AND
APOSTATE NATION HIS JUDGMENT???

My personal belief is that God’s judgment on this nation will come through
the economy.  I remember distinctly back in he mid 80s when I was running
from God and very heavily involved in trading some stocks, but mostly
commodities and futures, how precarious the whole economic system really
was.  Now you have to remember, this was back in the mid 80s when the United
States was clearly the dominate economic power in the world and the US
dollar was the gold standard all currency was judged by.

Fast forward just 20 years later and the world’s economic landscape has
dramatically changed.  China is clearly the dominate financial power today,
the booming economies of the UK, Japan, and the United States have been
replaced by India and many Middle Eastern nations, and the floundering US
dollar is no longer the monetary standard the world looks to.  The weak
dollar, sagging US economy, and what is now clearly a global economy in
2008, has all made the possibility of God using the economy to judge this
nation even more likely.

This is not complicated to understand.  I know economics can be
intimidating, but this is actually very simple.  Anyone who drives
understands the pressure of gas at nearly $4 a gallon.  With China, India,
and other nations using so much of the world’s energy resources, it wouldn’t
be a stretch to see gas at $10 a gallon.  With the population of the world
growing at the current rate, most people have no idea how precarious the
food supply is becoming.  We walk through our grocery stores with shelves
stocked full of food, but it wouldn’t take much for you to see many of those
shelves empty.

The US financial markets have always been more tenuous than most people
understand.  For the most part, they are one big ponzi scheme, lots of hype
with very little of substance to back-up any of the numbers you see.  We
have already seen the effects of this with the Internet bubble bursting in
2000, the failure of Enron and WorldCom, and the current nightmare the
housing market is going through.  If foreign money ever pulled out of the US
markets, it would cause stocks to tank, sending a ripple effect that would
be felt thought the brokerage and banking industries as hundreds of
trillions of dollars could be wiped out in days.

The point I am trying to make today is that it would not take much, a few
tweaks here and there for our economy to unwind and this nation to
experience a time far worse than even the great depression of the 1920s.
God would not have to do much to use the economy as a form of His judgment
on this nation and it would affect every man, woman, and child alive.  Most
people would be reduced to living like some people in other parts of the
world, simply living from day to day trying to acquire the basic needs of
life to survive.

I love you and care about you so much.  I am not trying to scare you today,
but to prepare you.  Prepare you that life as we know it at this moment
could change very easily and very suddenly.  Now is the time to get serious
about your faith and become bold in sharing that faith with others.  I know
God’s judgment is coming, I know we are living in the last days, and I know
Jesus is coming at any moment.  That is why I have worked so tirelessly,
especially these past 9 years since Liveprayer began, since I know that God
has raised up this ministry for this moment in human history.

A great revival is about to be unleashed on this nation and the world.  It
won’t be a revival of people chasing miracles, but a revival of souls as the
lost come to repentance and turn to Jesus.  They won’t need signs and
wonders to excite them, they will already be moved as they see the world
around them crumbling and realize that they need something bigger than
themselves to hold on to.  There will always be those with the hard hearts
who will curse God with their last breath, but hundreds of millions of souls
will bow their knee and confess Christ as their Lord and Savior by faith!

Never fear.  If you are child of God, no matter what form God’s wrath and
judgment on this nation takes, we have nothing to worry about since our
citizenship is not of this world.  We have a Heavenly home awaiting us.  Our
only job during these few years is to do all we can to bring as many people
to Heaven with us.  This is the time, now is the moment, our opportunity to
make our lives count for Christ is at hand.  May we be found faithful as we
take our stand for Him in these last days.

Also, I know from our daily emails for prayer that many people have already
been feeling the effects from the economic slowdown we are experiencing.
Many have been hurt by the problems in the housing sector.  Many hurt by the
increased cost of gasoline.  Many simply struggling to meet their monthly
needs.  Please know that I will be praying for you today and for the Lord to
not only meet your every need, but bless your finances and give you FAVOR as
you are faithful and obedient in that area of your life.  Amen!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
