What does knowing the LORD have to do with the direction the world and America is headed?

The articles clearly show there have been those voted into positions of power who want a system that has always failed when implemented. How is it there comes along a generation that rejects history and is tunnel downed on what they want irregardless of what the true outcome will be? It is not as complicated as you might think.

Dying Generation

In Joshua chapter 2 God gets onto the Israelites for worshipping other gods. The people repent and worship the LORD as long as Joshua and the older people are alive. Why? What did they have to offer? The older generation had personally witnessed and experienced all the LORD had done for Israel. But something happened because when Joshua and the generation that had seen the great works of God died, the next generation did not know about the LORD or what He had done. Sometime along the way a generation stopped living focused on the LORD. Where did this lead them?

No Personal Knowledge

When there is no personal relationship with God through faith in Jesus, the Son of God, Messiah, God is no longer the love of the heart and this leads to the worship of other gods. Well, we are there or well on our way. What happened to Israel? God allowed their enemy to capture them and take them into bondage. We have watched this in Europe because Europe no longer worships God they are a secular nation being taken over by Islam. This is now beginning here in America. What has been neglected to be passed down from generation to generation?

How To Be a Generation That Knows the LORD

Deuteronomy 6:4-9, 4:9, and 11:18-18 tell us that God expects each generation to tell and teach the next generation who God is and what He has done and this has not happened (Romans 10:14-15). America might call herself a Christian nation but it is obvious that is lip service and her heart is far from the living Lord God. The church, for the most part, has stopped preaching the true gospel of Christ. There has now arose a generation that has been taught God did what He did in order to make life here on earth all they could ever hope for it to be. This down grades Jesus (100% Man and 100% God every moment) from being God in flesh to mans level and elevates man to God's level. So, here we are, just like the Israelites, worshipping other gods and shocked that life as we know it is being destroyed by the young. Fortunately, this is not the end.

Good News

The good news is, as a believer, I am not taken by surprise at what is happening. I know where all this is headed and I know most of what will occur until God's plan is completed. America is not named in scripture by name and the verse some believe refers to America, states we have no power (Tarshish). These are times of fear and uncertainty but they are leading to a time of eternal peace, joy, and security. Now, would be a good time to know where your eternal future is headed because the One Who judges the living and the dead is coming again. 

John 3:3 KJV Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God....

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

Watchman

Ezekiel 33:6 "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand." (Amplified Bible)
