“…O you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky; but can you not discern the signs of the times?” -Jesus (Matt16:3)
Over the past several weeks I have attempted to drive home one particular ‘sign of the times’: Man cannot curse what God has blessed! Balak, the king of Moab, attempted to persuade Balaam, the prophet of God, to curse Israel(Num23:7,11), whom God had already blessed (Gen12:1-3; Num22:12; Num23:8). In the end, the disobedience of both, did not bode well for either the prophet or the king!
In my recent tidbit series, ‘Miracles of America’s Founding’ I contend--what should be very obvious—the Almighty God has blessed America!* There are few, if any nations in the history of the world that have prospered like America! How did it happen? The favor of God (Ps5:12; Pro14:34)! Or, the blessing of the Lord(Ps33:12)!
Because of God’s favor,* i.e.God’s blessing on this nation—one should be very carefulspeaking against what God has blessed! God protects His own(Ps34:7; Deut28:7), and returns the curse on the head of those who curse what He has blessed(Gen12:1-3). The Bible clearly warns: “Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” (1Chron16:22; Ps105:15). The principle that God protects His own is not limited to Israel; or to an individual; or to a prophet, but extends to anyone or anything with His calling, i.e. His blessing, i.e. His approval!
Following are just a few examples of God’s hand of blessing upon America:
1.There has been no other nation in the history of the world
that has facilitated prosperity for so many of its people!!
2.An Unprecedented number of minorities, including an
unprecedented number of Blacks, have achieved, in many
instances---wild prosperity; more so than in any other
nation on earth— including Black African nations!!!
3.Electing a Black president for not one, but two terms of office;
something no other predominantly White, Hispanic, Asian, or
Arab (etc.) nation has ever done in the history of the
4.Although slavery has been a blight on the past record of every
culture, nation, and ethnicity, America is the only nation in the
history of the world to willfully elect a descendent of the
enslaved group as its leader(president)!
5.America is the only nation in the history of the world to elect
a former member of the enslaved group as president in less
than 150 years after ending slavery!
6.America was the second nation in the history of the world
(England-1833) to end slavery not by a slave uprising, but by
the conscience of the slave-holder!!!
7.The conscience of America was changed by the
Judeao/Christian ethic, which created Western culture, which
for the first time in the history of the world has led to many
nations abolishing slavery!!! America is the leader in exporting
the Judaeo/Christian ethic!!
In spite of all these unprecedented accomplishments, according to liberalism, America is not only a racist nation, but THE MOST racist nation in the world! Sadly, even the NFL and NBA have fallen prey to this invented liberal myth!
Interestingly, the NFL players, beginning with Colin Kaepernick, cite White police brutality (murder of young Black men) as their number ONE evidence*** for America’s racism. Every national video I have ever seen ONLY shows police shooting Blacks---in spite of the fact that police shoot nearly double the number of Whites!****
Whites -494 White -466
Blacks -254 Black – 233
Liberalism declares America is racist, and police are racist, in spite of the fact that Black deaths by police do not even make the top 7 ways Blacks die:
--Police shootings -233 (2016)
6.Firearm Homocides-6,100 (over 6000 annual homicides of Black
1.Abortion-Over 300,000 Black babies aborted annually!
Liberalism declares America is racist, and police are racist, in spite of the fact that on 9/20/16, Black man Keith Lamont Scott was killed by police, which ignited several days of rioting in Charlotte, North Carolina!!! Incredibly, there was not one word from the SAME media over ‘five’ White men who were killed by police on the very same day!!! http://killedbypolice.net/
Liberals, and especially the liberal media, purposely suppress truth!!! (Rom1:18)
It is obvious to all but the willfully ignorant that God has blessed America! To curse what God has blessed…reverses the curse on the head of the curser! The Sovereign, eternal God will not be mocked:
There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the
* I offer the miracles at America’s founding as evidence of God’s hand irrevocably upon this
nation! In other words, what God has called…no man can negate(Rom11:29)!
**America’s Declaration and Constitution have facilitated freedom not only for America, but for

****Liberals, particularly liberal Blacks and Hispanics, continually claim that “people of color”
(by which they mean Blacks and Hispanics) are being targeted by police, when the facts
indicate that more Whites are shot by police than Blacks and Hispanics combined!!!
