“Crime - What Crime?”

“Philadelphia – A diamond ring stolen from a pizza maker; a jeep stolen by joy-riding teenagers, a hand bag containing $650 swiped from a salesclerk: Are these crimes?

Police wrote off the incidents as “missing property,” “investigate auto,” and “lost property. “Police in Philadelphia have long been in the habit of labeling robberies as minor “disturbances,” downgrading assaults to; hospital cases, attempted robbery as “open properties,” meaning the owner left a door or window open.”

The definition of justice is: “Fairness, reward or penalty as deserved. The use of authority to uphold what is just. To cause a wrongdoer to be tried in court and duly punished.” But how does America administer justice? The loop-hole system! Definition of this system: “A means of evading something unpleasant.” Also the American justice system has been labeled the revolving door, plea bargains, technicality; (technicality – meaning the officer forgot to read the Miranda rights to the criminal). The result of this technicality, the criminal must be released. This is hogwash!

“Give heed (America) for the judgment pertains to you.” You (America) who turns justice to worm wood, (bitterness) you have turned justice to poison.” “The Lord God has sworn ‘Surely I will never forget any of their deeds. Shall not the land tremble on this account?’”

“Behold the eyes of the Eternal God are upon this sinful nation, and will destroy it from the surface of the earth. I, God, will shake (America) as one shakes with a sieve, all who say; evil shall never overtake us.”

“For the day of the Lord is near upon all nations. As you have done, it shall be done unto you, your deeds shall return on your own head, and in anger and wrath! (God) will execute vengeance upon the nations that refuse to obey.”

America has come to this point: “She (America) listens to no voice, she accepts no correction, she does not trust in God. Her officials are roaring lions; her judges are ravening wolves, her prophets (religious leaders) are faithless men; they profane what is sacred (God’s Word – the Holy Bible).They do violence to the law; teaching that it is not necessary to keep God’s law. The unjust knows no shame.”

What lies in store for a person that speaks God’s word with boldness? “They hate him that rebukes and abhor him that speaks the truth.” “The law (God’s law and also the law of the land) is not enforced therefore judgment never goes forth; and it displeased God that there was no judgment.”

    As the result: “The land (America) is full of bloody crimes, and the city (New York, Chicago, Los Angeles., etc.) is full of violence. Why is it this way in America? Because there is no justice in the land!

“No one calls for justice, nor pleads for truth; they trust in vanity, and speak lies: their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood.”

If we, the United States of America, continue to administer improper justice in the land, continue to pervert justice, in the very near future herein is what awaits our peoples. “Hear the word of God America, for God has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land. By swearing, lying, killing, and stealing and committing adultery, they break out and blood touches blood. Therefore, shall the land mourn and everyone that dwells therein shall languish. I (God) will change their glory to shame.”

“America shall cry unto me, my God we know you! But God replies “to say you know me and keep not my commandments. You are a liar and the truth is not in you” (I john 2:4). “Therefore, I (God) will be unto them as a lion; as a leopard by the way, stalk them; I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her cubs, and there will I devour them like a lion.”

“Hear this and give ear all inhabitants of the land, food is cut off before your eyes, the seed is rotten under the clods.” The corn is withered, the beasts groan! Herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no pasture (drought). I will give cleanness of teeth (famine) in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places. I will not turn away the punishment; because you despise my laws and refuse to keep my commandments.”

“Hear, I pray, O leaders of (America) you should know right from wrong but you hate judgment and pervert all equity, you judge for reward (money).Therefore judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off. Therefore I (God) am against you, and will execute judgment in the midst of you in the sight of all the nations and will do to you which I have not done and which I will not do anymore the like, because of all your abominations.”

“I (God) will destroy my people since they return not from their ways. You shall be left few in number; you were as the stars of heaven for multitude (300 million-plus - current population) because you would not obey the voice of the Lord God.”

“A third of you will die from pestilence (disease) and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them” (Ezk. 5:12). Only a tenth will survive their captivity.

There is hope for our nation if we will turn from our national and personal sins. For sin is the violation of God’s law (the Ten Commandments (I John 3:4) and that is what is causing all our problems, violating God’s law!

“O Israel (America) return unto the Lord thy God: for you have fallen by your lawlessness.” What is the solution? “…turn to the Lord: say unto him, take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously.”

“Turn unto me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning, and rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: For he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness. And repenteth him of the evil.”

If we, the people of the United States of America continue to have a hard heart and a stiff neck toward God then he answers us in these words: “Because I have called and you refused; I have stretched out my hand and no man paid attention; but you have set at naught. All my council and want not of my reproof; I will also laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear comes; when your fear comes as desolation and your destruction comes as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish come upon you. Then shall you call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me; for they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of God. They wanted none of my counsel; they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of their own way and eat of their own devices. The mouth of the Lord has spoken and his word shall not return unto him empty.”

America, please change and turn from all the evil that is taking place in our nation. Turn with all your heart, and with fasting and with weeping and mourning and repent to God of the evil, or else God will not change his mind and all these things will come upon us until we are destroyed!

Only God has the solution to mankind’s problems. God makes it plain and one would think by now, after two World Wars and poised for round three that we would finally wake up and agree with our Maker!

We have God’s Holy Word, the Bible, and in its pages are many instructions about how to make sound judgment and to administer justice, fairness and equity for all. Read chapters 21-23 of the book of Exodus.

If we continue to refuse to do it God’s way therefore God thunders back with these words: “Will you (a mortal man composed of the dust of the earth) disannul my judgment? Will you condemn Me, that you may be righteous?”

“Have you an arm like God? Look on everyone that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked. Then will I (God) also confess unto you that your own righteousness cannot save you. Who then is able to stand before Me?”

My friends, America is on a downhill slide toward oblivion.  We have turned from God and have become a sinful nation.  Our cities are wreaked with crimes of all sorts.  Our justice system does not deal with these crimes and the criminals know this.  God will intervene to stop it but not before we are brought low through famine, pestilence and disease. Then and only then will the majority of mankind repent.  How about you?  Will it take tribulation to make you turn to your Creator?
