Be sure to check out the photos of our Nation as seen from God's view at the end of this study.
The question is will You read the Complete article here to find the profound Truth many need to find in order to get back to where Jesus wants you to be?
One Nation Under Who?
Are we One Nation under God?
We have heard the famous phrase "One Nation under God" and it makes many feel that it means we are under the protection of God and our laws as well as our conduct are in agreement with God. It seems to set us apart from the other Nations of this world because we are a good Nation and God is pleased with us. Our founding fathers were very close to the ideas of God's understanding of good laws for the people and by the people and as a result they set up our system under the principles that every person was endowed by their creator. They stated in part...We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are CREATED equal, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness (July 4, 1776.)
Their hope was that the people would use these rights for the good of all thus bringing about blessings from God. Their other intent was that the people would teach and do those things written by God's own hand that Moses delivered which is known as the Ten Commandments. Our founding fathers understood to keep these Ten Commandments as a Nation along with the other points they made would insure our prosperity and growth into the greatest Nation on earth. They were very wise and correct in their understanding, however what they missed was that the richer a family become the more they think they no longer need God and that can include the masses as well. Not only do such people think they no longer need God but in many cases (As the christian religion) they errect pagan gods in the Creator's place. They then start lusting for more power and thus corruption becomes the menu of the day. It's the hard work on the farm that keeps people close to our Creator because on a farm we see God's hand in our human needs on a repeated and very frequent cycle.
There is a prayer by a minister being sent out that really sounds great listing the many sins of America today and admonishes us to repent and "once again" become one nation under God. The problem with this prayer and admonition is we have never been one nation under God nor can we become one nation under God. Now many will not want to hear this and many will deny these truths but the facts are that George Washington (This Nation's first president) was a Mason as well as part of the satanic order of the Illuminati and Washington DC is patterned after many pagan and satanic gods and is in fact itself satanic therefore how could we have ever been one nation under the Creator? The fact is being one nation under God is the fallacy that the Illuminati fed the people of this nation. The many sins the minister referenced in his prayer are nothing new, but is supposed a phenomenon that has occurred just in the last few years. The undeniable truth is these many sins have Perplexed this Nation from it's very beginning.
Just honestly look at the history of America and you will see the mass murder and rape of the American Indians including women and children as well as the slavery of the African people. The African people in many cases were tortured not only through direct torture but through working them to death in some cases, and endured the great humiliation and Trauma of being sold like an animal separating them from their wives and children, mothers and fathers and the slave owners would rape they're young slave girls in the night and in many cases rented them out to their friends.
Let's not forget the many hundreds and hundreds of towns that vastly spotted across this country in the past and how these towns were full of prostitution, drunkenness, and murder on a daily basis. All one really needs to do is read the "true account" of one town called Deadwood to get the flavor of this Nation's past because most ALL towns on the plains were like Deadwood. Let's not forget the many entire families that were murdered on the plains by greedy barons for their land and livestock. Let's not forget the many killings and thefts of land claims over the gold mines and later the oilfields of West Texas. Let's not forget the Roaring Twenties full of prostitution, drunkenness, and drugs, or the time when the mobs were murdering at will in many major cities as they fought for controle of the liqure, drug and prostitution trade while the Police and politicians looked the other way.
And that brings us down through present-day with the murder of Millions, and even Billions of unborn children while Millions of "good Christians" stand by silent just as the German people did during the Holocaust of World War II. What about the billions and billions of dollars worth of drugs flowing across our borders unimpeded and also having a clear way across America and into all towns and major cities as well as the many foreign gangs ruling many neighborhoods in these massive cities. Not only are evil murderious drugs getting spread to our children but the prostitution and human trading by these foreign games from El Salvador are by the many millions? What about homosexuality that is going on not only across the entire nation but in Washington DC as well. This is why the laws are being change so that two men can not only get married but they can also adopt a little boy or two so that they can rape those poor little boys for the rest of their lives; but why not? .... they did'nt get aborted right? What about these cities such as Las Vegas that not only has "legalized" prostitution, and "legalized" drugs but they also have "legalized" gambling which takes money from many families because they Prey upon the weakness of the flesh. What about the City of New Orleans that is vial and evil in every way one can even imagine but is allowed to continue because the Politicians are getting very rich and their Playground is Free of Charge.
The Egyptians worshipped the sun, also known as Baal and the Obelisk was their tool to do so. Now ask yourself, why would an ancient symbol right out of Baal worship be placed as an official statue in the capital city of a Nation that professes the creator God and His Son Jesus as the Savior? Have you ever seen the Washington Obelisk with the lights on at the top? Baal is identified as Satan by Jesus himself in Matthew 10:25, Mark.3:22-26, and Luke 11:15-19.
Sun worship is religious devotion paid to the sun either as a deity or as the symbol of a deity. Sun worship was practiced by the Iroquois, Plains, and Tsimshian peoples of North America and reached a high state of development among the Native Americans of Mexico and Peru. The Babylonians were sun worshipers, and in ancient Persia worship of the sun was an integral part of the elaborate cult of Mithras. The ancient Egyptians worshiped the sun god Ra. In ancient Greece the deities of the sun were Helios and Apollo. The worship of Helios was widespread; temples were built in Corinth, Argos, Troezen (no longer in existence), and many other cities, but the principal seat was on the island of Rhodes, (Greece) in the Dodecanese, where four white horses were sacrificed annually to the god and was one of the Seven Wonders of the World. A similar sacrifice was offered on the summit of Mount Hagios Elias, in the Taïyetos Mountains, in Laconia. In time virtually all the functions of Helios were transferred to the god Apollo, in his identity as Phoebus. Sun worship persisted in Europe even after the introduction of Christianity, as is evidenced by its disguised survival in such traditional Christian practices as the Easter bonfire and the Yule log on Christmas. under "Sun Worship," Microsoft(R) Encarta(R) 97 Encyclopedia.

For more information on Sun worship and the elaborate cult of "Mithras" see Sun worship in Christianity at the end of this study.
A colossal statue:
Although we do not know the true shape and appearence of the Colossus of Rhodes, modern reconstructions show the statue standing upright are more accurate than older drawings. Although it disapeared from existence after an earth quake, the ancient World Wonder inspired many people as well as modern artists such as French sculptor Auguste Bartholdi best known by his famous work: The Statue of Liberty. From this research we have found that the Statue of Liberty was fashioned after a sun god. The sun rays that come from behind the Statue of Liberty also show that it's in reality a sun goddess and should be condemned by a nation that professes worship to the true creator God of heaven whom has stated that we should destory them that are no gods, but are dumb and cannot speak or help in time of need. The command from the true God is "You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; Exod 20:3-4" (NKJ) See our research with pictures on the Obelisk at the end of this study.
This is the way satan gets people to worship and keep that which God commands us not to have. Remember the old saying, "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts?" The Statue of Liberty may seem like a good thing, after all it has such a profound meaning and it is embedded in our history so deep we could never get rid of it. Even if it is a sun goddess, we must keep it or we will enrage the people, right? What does God say? Jer 51:17-18. "Everyone is dull-hearted, without knowledge; every metalsmith is put to shame by the carved image; for his molded image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. They are futile, a work of errors; in the time of their punishment they shall perish.
What Should this mean to Christians?
Gambling, Prostitution, Pornography, Drug abuse, Robbery and Murder, and the acceptance of pagan idols and much more are sweeping our Nation in cities like New York, Chicago, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Las Vegas Nevada to just name a few. We might ask why God would allow evil things to happen to small innocent children? We might ask if God was even concerned, or is He even there? The fact that many Christians don't want to face is that God is there but we as a Nation has rejected Him. Let's look at some scriptures to find the answer. Let's listen to the words of Paul to Timothy concerning a prophecy for the last days. He wrote..."But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." 2 Tim 3:1-7.
So are we One Nation under God?
Does the prophecy listed above sound like what we researched concerning this Nations lifestyle? Why is it that this Nation and world is like what Paul described in the prophecy above? Let's read the answer from God's servant John as we find recorded in the book of Revelation what could be just ahead of us. It states "And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?" And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints." Rev 13:3-10.
Notice the points I made bold and was underlined. These points show (1) The people worshiped the beast, and (2) it will be the entire world that do so, except those that are written in the book of life of the Lamb. The danger is that many Christians forget that Satan has been working hard down through the ages to overthrow the Kingdom of God and his greatest desire is to be worshipped and to rule all the earth, even over God Himself. Although many Christians are in their comfort zone, thinking all is well, Satan is hard at work to accomplish his goals. Just as he tried to pervert the very lineage that Jesus the Messiah was to be born from, which is covered in chapter two of my book "The Great Apostasy". We also read in Matthew 2:16 that Satan used Herod the Roman ruler to try and kill Jesus the Messiah as a child. (You might want to read the links at the end of this study.)
Let's take a good look at what is truly meant by the term "worship" so we can understand. The American heritage Dictionary renders Worship as…"The reverent love and allegiance accorded a deity, songs or prayers, or other forms by which this love is expressed." Now when we look at the Greek word for worship in Rev. 14:9 it is "proskuneo", and it means to fawn, crouch, or prostrate oneself in homage, or to reverence and adore. Please keep this meaning in mind as we go through the preceding scriptures because this is what those who worship the Beast will do in the very near future, and that's why their names are not written in the book of life.
What does the book of revelation note as the reason God will
destroy this present evil world system?
"And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write, 'These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword: I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan's throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. "Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate." Rev 2:12-15. And in Rev 2:20-23 we read; "Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works."
What Should We Do?
Repent! Just what does that mean? To repent is to turn and go the other way, but is that all we should do? Should we also help others understand how their actions or decisions in life can cause negative results? Yes we need to do that but at the same time understand that God gives us free will choice so we have only a few ways to try and help others. Let's read what is recorded concerning these last days in Rev 2:4-5. "Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place-- unless you repent." This is a warning from God and if we heed it we will not regret it. It is a fact that we can't and will not change some in these last days and their ways will cause great horrific events that will even stop some men's heart as they look upon it however scripture reveals that God will protect those that are His.
How many churches are in this Nation? Thousands of churches claiming to worship Jesus the Christ are throughout this Nation, and how many people attend services every Sabbath or Sunday? How many bibles are sold every day and most importantly; how many ministers are working with their congregations during the week? Are most people just going to church because they feel bad if they don't or because their children are on the church's baseball team? Are the ministers teaching just what is political correctness, or are they preaching against same sex marriage? Are they preaching that abortion is murder? Are they teaching against the Harry Potter materials teaching that these books will lead our children into Witchcraft? Are they teaching good family values that will help all to understand the importance of the family structure where there is respect for the parents and the parents should respect their children? Are people worshipping pagan gods in their church and believing they are worshipping Jesus? Why do you go to church?
Do you believe your bible teaches anything relevant to our day with all the computers, cars, TVs, I-Pods, and cell-phones? The answer is that our conduct in any time period is relevant because it is our conduct that determines if we survive. If we continue down the path of "self first" we will not be able to sustain the very system that we have created. According to the book of Revelation many will repent but many will not as well. We find recorded in Rev 9:20-21. "But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts." Notice that in these end times the world will be worshipping demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood!
How important is it that we come out of this world and even leave these Churches that have a man or a group of men ruling over the Assembly of Jesus and come to the true Messiah for protection during the great tribulation and salvation for eternity? Let's read what John wrote in Rev 19:20-21. for the answer "Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh." So why does God allow evil to continue now? Because it's mankind that's at fault and even by doing nothing to stop those that hate God and His good ways makes us guilty and worthy of the tribulations. Many will repent as John wrote in Rev. 7:9 stating that there was a number that no man could number who will come out of the great tribulation, those that washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Yes and those that were beheaded for the testimony of salvation through the Son of God. And we find recorded in Rev 15:1-2 that those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.
But we find the fate of those that loved pleasure for a season and accepted the mark of the beast in Rev 16:2-17 where the seven angels pour out their bowls of the wrath of God on them. It states "So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.
Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died.
Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters saying: "You are righteous, O Lord, the One who is and who was and who is to be, because You have judged these things. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink. For it is their just due." And I heard another from the altar saying, "Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments."
"Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.
Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain. They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds.
Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. "Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame." And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.
Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is done!"
So we see that it is not God's fault that OUR sins have caused evil to come on our Nation. It is because this Nation left God and turned to many other gods for health, happiness, and prosperity. To America as a Nation God is just in the background and only to be called on during church services or when some think they need Him. I hate to be the one that breaks this news to the world but God is not our Genie who when summoned by a person carries out the wishes of the summoner! God is ALL in ALL and He has power over every breath we take. It is in His Great love for us that He will for now continue to put up with our disrespect of Him and who He is! But never think that the day of His wrath will never come. I say COME Jesus and save us from this evil world.
Are we truly One nation under God? Look if you dare!
