Is America Blessed or Cursed?

We’re getting mixed messages from the news about how God may be feeling toward the United States these days.

Some say we are blessed because of the multiple failures of would-be mass murderers, such as the older case of the shoe bomber and two more recent botched attempts by terrorists.

Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad was apparently trained by the Taliban in Pakistan to construct a massive car bomb, but his detonation device failed to bring about the desired calamity.

Last Christmas, Abdul Farouk Umar Abdulmutallab, a 23-year old Nigerian, tried to destroy a Northwest Airlines jet over Detroit, but his detonator also failed to ignite the explosives he carried in his underwear.

It certainly is possible that The Lord Himself has intervened in these failures.

On the other hand, some of my fellow prophecy-trackers have pointed out the possible correlation between the many disasters that have plagued our country recently and the weakening of support for Israel by our administration. Unusual floods, hurricanes and tornados have stricken us, sometimes coming right on the heels of disappointments to Israel by President Obama’s policies. Now a major oil spill threatens our ecology and our economy while U.S. negotiators make harsh demands on Israel’s building programs.

Which is it? Is God blessing us or cursing us? Could it be a little of both to remind us of the ancient, unchanging, covenant with Abraham? Let’s all read it again and ponder what it means for our nation in these last days.

1 The LORD had said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.
2 “I will make you into a great nation
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”

Genesis 12:1-3 – NIV

    Every day I walk outside and see silver jets-no windows-no markings-I see with telescope- fogging up the sky with white stuff. I cant help but feel America is already finished. I feel we are at the door-of big troubles. I think those examples you gave were just calculated good news. It was over when JFK got hit- Weve been hijacked ever since.

    Just the other day I was questioning the same thing. I do believe that everything that happens in this life is for the Glory of God and to give us as much opportunity to be born again as possible. Maybe God is allowing these things to happen in the U.S. so we will wake up and once again become a nation of God. It is quite interesting to look around at everything that is going on. Everyday my husband and I watch the news and say, the world has gone crazy. I am so blessed to have the Lord in my life, no way could I survive without him. I look forward to the day we can all live together and walk hand in hand with Jesus. The days are numbered. We must be ready. Thank you for your wonderful insite.

    I believe God stopped the man-made disasters to show that He is the Almighty God and that He is the only One who will reward and punish us. The bombers were trying to kill Americans on behalf of their idol and their plans didn’t work. God’s punishments, lessons, and rewards never fail. He is the only true God and the only One who can control what happens. Perhaps he is trying to teach us something.

    Which commandments of God do Americans NOT break on a regular basis? Not only that but we glory in breaking them ! We reap what we sow . God bye America — hello NWO!

  7. 800 kindred souls gone,human misery at its worst. As an Indian my heart goes to all those brothers and sisters who have lost their dear ones. May God give them the courage to brave this calamity.
