America's Christian Heritage


America was founded by strong believers in Jesus Christ. It was the world's greatest example of freedom and Christian principles. It befriended God's Chosen People, both before and after Israel was reborn as a modern nation. It was blessed by God in keeping with the promise given to Abraham.

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 12:3

Prophecy students have wondered for decades why the United States will not apparently be a major player in the Bible’s End Times scenario. Europe is predicted as a Revived Roman Empire, but with a much weaker composition than ancient Rome. Ancient biblical lands will be involved in the prophetic future. They have modern names: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and others. But how could the one great “superpower” of our generation be ignored at the end of this age? Just a few years ago we could not have imagined how rapidly our beloved country would decline.

An honest evaluation of The United States today reveals that we are growing weaker economically, militarily, and above all, spiritually.

Many Churches in America are retreating from a literal interpretation of the Bible, and have allowed the corrupting influences of secular humanism, the sexual revolution, abortion, and other false beliefs and practices to slowly infiltrate their leadership. This change is predicted in the Bible. It is called apostasy, or a “falling away” from the truth.

As a result, our nation is in danger of God's judgment. But like the biblical example of Nineveh, whose people repented in Jonah's days, there could be a great revival first. We are praying for this!

In view of the surprising spiritual aspects of the latest presidential election, and in spite of some people's honest doubts about Donald Trump's migration toward Christian belief and practice, we should have high hopes that our nation will experience another "Great Awakening."

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. - 2 Chronicles 7:14

Apr. 20, 2017 - The Supreme Court heard a case yesterday about whether or not a church should be excluded from a government-assisted program to repave playgrounds with safer re-cycled tires.

Gorsuch, the court’s newest member, was subdued by comparison to his active involvement during his first two days of arguments. He only asked a couple brief questions of the state's lawyer near the end of arguments.

McConnell vows Gorsuch confirmation this week, says nuclear option 'in hands of Democrats'

Apr. 2, 2017 - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that Judge Neil Gorsuch will be confirmed this week to the Supreme Court.
President Trump’s pick to fill the high court seat of conservative Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, will almost certainly have enough votes early this week in the GOP-controlled Senate.
However, if the Democrats start a filibuster to upset the process, Senate leadership could invoke the so-called "nuclear option," which would stop the filibuster, and only require a majority vote to confirm Gorsuch.
