Obama is not the cause but the symbol

The Real Reason Why America is Exceptional. The Truth Will Save You!

America1 By Bob Barney

Someone once asked me, "Bob how can you say in one breath that God has little to do with this world, yet then say that the USA is one of the lost nations of Israel? In addition, that if we do not obey God, our nation will be destroyed by him? Which scenario is it: Is God involved or is this Satan’s world?"

I am quite sure that many have asked themselves the same question and let me assure you that there is an easy answer! God was totally involved in our world in the days of Adam and Eve. He (The God of Adam was the member of the Godhead who became Jesus Christ. The term LORD in the Old Testament almost always refers to Jesus' title before he became a man. Just read the first Chapter of the Gospel of John for proof) personally walked with Adam and Eve, talked with them and instructed them how to live in a godly manner, which if they had listened, they would and have lived forever. Jesus had every intention to be involved in our lives from the start, just as any human parent would want to do with their children.

Then, according to scripture, sin entered the world through Adam and Eve’s disobedience to God. There is only one biblical definition of sin.  It simply is: "Sin is the transgression of the Law." (1 John 3:4) Without the Law, sin isn't possible! (Romans 3:20 and Romans 7:7). Paul says, “What shall we say then? Is the Law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, “You shall not covet.” When Adam and Eve broke God’s Laws, they sinned. The Bible also gives us another term: "The wages (or penalty) of sin is death." ( Rom 6:23) Wages are what we earn for our hard work. In this case, our hard work of sinning earns us the sum equaling DEATH! That's the minimum wage I want to stay far away from! Breaking the laws of God, brings death! Therefore, Adam’s sin brought death to not only himself, but to all born from his seed.



The Apostle Paul writes in 1Cor:15 that “Death came into the world because of what one man (Adam) did, and it is because of what this other man (Christ) has done that now there is the resurrection from the dead. 22 Everyone dies because all of us are related to Adam, being members of his sinful race, and wherever there is sin, death results. But all who are related to Christ will rise again. 23 Each, however, in his own turn: Christ rose first; then when Christ comes back, all his people will become alive again.”

Paul's words are easy to comprehend and explains why death is in the world today. It was the wages earned by Adam!

Now notice that there was a tree of life in the garden. As long as mankind would eat of this tree, they would not die. After the sin of Adam and Eve, God did not want for His creation to exist forever in sin, so God ejected them from the garden AND the tree of life (Gen 3:22-23). God is love and God does not want to see any of us live forever in the torment of sin, as so many churches falsely teach. The penalty of sin IS NOT tormenting in an ever burning hellfire, rather the penalty of sin is death ( Rom 6:23) - eternal death. God did not want this eternal death to happen, so God the Father and God the Word (Jesus) came up with a plan for all mankind! If the penalty of sin was death, someone greater than all creation would have to die in order to prevent each sinful person from having to suffer death eternally. Jesus, the creator of all life would die for everyone's sin. Only in this way could everyone who ever lived, past, present or future, would have the chance to have their debt of death paid for by God! "The wages of sin are death" . What we earn for sinful work is death! That is why the analogy of Christ PAYING FOR OUR DEBT comes from. Our sinful "work" earns us death., that’s our wages, or what we earn for sinning. Christ’s death paid off the bill! We are debt free once and for all when we place our faith in Christ and OBEY Him.

Getting back to the subject concerning whose world this is, God’s or Satan’s? God can create anything, but has chosen not to create our character . God wants us to develop our own character and to choose His ways over our ways, or worse, the Devil's way. We as parents find this out for ourselves when our children become teenagers and rebel against our authority. Mankind has also rebelled against God’s authority and literally "hid" from God! We read in Genesis that Adam hid from God in the garden, and to this day, everyone who does not know God the Father and Jesus are hiding from God!(Gen 3:8) Consequently, God now hides from us and banishes all of us from paradise, just as he banished Adam and Eve from their paradise. As a result, the world today is mostly separated from God and is under the authority of Satan (2 Cor.4:4). So according to God, the world belongs to Satan, until the return of Christ, who is coming to rid the universe from the Devil.

God called a man, Abraham, and told him to obey God and follow God's Laws, and Abraham became God’s friend! (James 2:23) God wants to be your friend too, just like He was with Abraham. Jesus said, " Ye are My friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you." (John 15:14-15). Truthfully, when you become the friend of God, God will intervene in this world and literally move heaven and earth to save you from your enemies. Abraham had that kind of friendship with the God, who would one day became Jesus Christ in the New Testament. God promised this Abraham that his children would be blessed. That promise fell to Isaac and then to Jacob who was re-named by God to 'ISRAEL'. So we read that Israel is merely the name of a man, whose children became 13 nations. These children of Israel would be blessed by God ONLY BECAUSE of GOD’S PROMISE TO Abraham! God says that "I change not, therefore Israel you are not consumed." ( Mal 3:6) What that means is that when the nation of Israel became sinners and deserved to be put to death, God would not do it because God never fails to live up to His promise! He promised Abraham that his children would be blessed whether THEY DESERVED IT OR NOT! So as most of the nations of the world are under the Devil’s rule, Israelites are always ultimately under God’s rule!

Again, let’s use the parent comparison again. Our children may rebel against us as well. They may even leave us and go their own way. We, like our God should permit them to go their own way. They don’t understand that you, like God still secretly watch over them and try to protect them. Yes, we let them go, but we are always ready to come running at a moment of any need they may have. God is our heavenly Father and is doing the same thing that any good parent does. He has allowed us all to make our own choices, but there are special people that God has promised to watch over EVEN THOUGH THEY DO NOT DESERVE IT! It was God’s promise to Abraham. This promise extends to all Christians, as well as all of Israel (the 13 nations.)

Americans just have not been told that we are one of the lost nations of Israel and this concealed knowledge has consequences! If you are a Christian, it means nothing to your personal salvation, but it does mean something in your physical life. You may be a Christian and already are "saved" for lack of a better word, but if you fall off a 20 story building you will most certainly die - A Christian, yes, but dead! The same applies for God’s physical blessings and punishments. If this nation, which owes all of its blessings and greatness alone the promise made to Abraham, continues to follow the commandments spelled out for us in Leviticus chapter 26, then God promises a physical blessing for all of us. That’s God’s word and His personal promise to YOU- if you are from Israel. This knowledge has been kept from you, however your forefathers knew it! The Pilgrims knew it. Many of the founding fathers knew it, even Queen Elizabeth knows it and believes it. Look up her official genealogy, she traces her line back to King David! Why hasn’t that ever been taught in our schools?

Let’s look at King David. This may surprise you, but King David had the Holy Spirit before Christ died and resurrected! You can read it for yourself. David says to God, "don’t take your Holy Spirit from me,"(Ps 51:11) as he begged forgiveness from God after his adulterous sin with Bathsheba and then KILLING her husband! The Law mandated BOTH to die for their crimes. So, why didn’t they die? The reason is obvious, David had the Holy Spirit as much as you and I have it and his faith in Christ spared his life, just like it will do for a Christian today! David knew that God was going to die for us, after all he wrote those psalms that predicted it. David was spared spiritual punishment yes, but God forced him to endure physical punishment as well. He was forced to see two children die, he was ousted for a time from his throne, and was forced to watch his wives raped by one of his own sons! David was spared by grace, but because he broke the Law, he paid the physical consequences of breaking the Law. The same applies to America today! This is why I keep writing, "WAKE UP AMERICA." We must understand our special relationship that we have with our God. America is special. We are part of lost Israel, blessed by God because of a promise to Abraham AND we were founded as a Christian nation!

We have been lied to by our leaders. Governmental, religious and media leaders have all have hidden from us their real motives. Our leaders want to see us merged into a world government that will eventually lead to our slavery as God promised would happen to us in Leviticus chapter 26. Yes, God's Word has predicted that, in the end times, this will be our fate because we are the peoples of the lost tribes of Israel that was be scattered throughout Europe and the new world (Ez 28:25 and Is 43:5), and this is why we need to know who we are and the special relationship that we have with God Almighty. God, the best friend anyone could ever have is our friend and wants us to obey Him for our own good, just ask that guy named Abraham. You too can have the SAME friendship that Abraham had with God. Jesus is both God and our Savior. He is our only hope. What could be better news than that? Call out to God before it becomes to late to. God is always listening!

Deu 5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all My Commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Friends, God is saying that to you and to me. May God Bless you and this nation and remember us during our times of tribulation.
