What does God have to do with the exorbitant division of America?
God Almighty is significantly involved in the current deepest and widest division of America since the historical Civil War.
In a sense, the divide of America is actually deeper than at the time of the Civil War. The very foundation of the nation is in current danger of either being destroyed or of being greatly strengthened by the outcome and result of the extreme divisive forces now at war in America and the world.
The current division in America is much deeper than political rhetoric and the normal issues of governing the nation. In the past the major issues of government involved how to provide the necessary functions for the national well-being of the citizens and how to best deal with the other nations of the world.
These concerns along with the overshadowing of how best to honor God as a nation have been the major discussions of political dialog. There were differences of opinions of how best to accomplish these mutual overall goals.
Yet the final goals of the rival political parties were basically the same. That is not the case in this present season.
Having these basic mutual overall goals has, in the past history of the United States of America, brought about mutual cooperation process of governmental compatibility among political parties.
After the final results of the national elections processes were decided there was a figurative handshake and mutual cooperation of the parties in governing in the best interest of the nation.
Compromise between the two major political views were threshed out in the legislative branch and the executive branch with the judicial branch keeping check to see that the constitution was adhered to at all times. In the beginning centuries of American history, these works of government were always done in the spiritual shadow and influence of honoring God.
The Big Divide
Two major spiritual shifts took place in America in the twentieth century.
One shift was a great change that began in the Church in the early years of the century. The original power works of God, much as they were in the days of Christ Jesus and His disciples in the first century, began to be restored.
A work of purification of the people of God and empowerment of a greater fullness of the work of The Holy Spirit began to bring new life and new ways to many believers across the nation and the world.
The increased holiness and Spirit power began to create a subculture of more devout people with stronger honor for God.
This subculture became a rapidly growing counterculture apart from the lukewarm Church systems of the day.
The lukewarm Church systems had made room for the secular humanistic, godless culture of intellectualism and materialism with its sub surface hidden demonic roots.
The division of the increasingly Spirit-empowered culture and the increasingly humanistic culture led to the second great shift of the century.
The second and opposing great shift occurred toward the middle of the twentieth century. It was a magnification of something called “the separation of Church and state.”
In the past, the concern of there ever being a state-run religion had fostered the desire for a separation between the government and religion. t was never meant to be interpreted to mean separating God from government.
Also, in the latter part of the nineteenth century and the first part of the twentieth century, for the most part, the lukewarm religious Church that had rejected the restoration of the power of The Holy Spirit had come to give only a religious token or pretense of honoring God.
The lukewarm Church had become much less of an opposing factor to the influence of spiritual darkness in the culture and the government.
The discussions and divisions on the details of how to honor God in Church practice and in national government began to shift. The political discussions shifted to dishonoring God and removing all respect and honor for God from the national government.
The practical interpretation or application of the “separation of Church and state” became getting God out of the government and the culture of the nation.
The one true God who had made America a great nation in world leadership has been and is being shut out of government and the culture of the nation. Godless education and mass media have become the drivers and directors of the culture of the nation.
The Church isolated itself from the government in agreement with the powers of darkness that are ruling through the ungodly education and mass media’s mind-crafting influences.
The influences of the darkness infiltrated the Church systems that has led to areas of agreement and cooperation with the educational, mass media, and the now mostly godless national government.
The BIG DIVIDE is between the reality of a nation of life and governance UNDER GOD or a nation of life and government WITHOUT THE ONE TRUE GOD.
Literally a government with no god is not a real possibility. There is spirit rule beneath and feeding into the natural mind of all mankind that affects governance.
The real matter or choice is will it be spirits of darkness or the Spirit of light that feeds guidance, motivation, and power into the minds and hearts of the people and the government of the nation?
Therefore, the real UNDERLYING DIVIDE is between Satan’s regime of evil darkness or GOD AND HIS KINGDOM OF LIGHT.
Corruption with Purpose
Without embracing the restored works and guidance of God by The Holy Spirit, the government and the culture have deteriorated into corrupt morals and ungodly ways of life’s order and governance that historically has always led to the fall of great nations.
The overall plan and purpose of the spirits of darkness ruling in the ungodly systems of life and governance in the world is a ONE WORLD GOVERNANCE WITHOUT GOD.
Behind all governmental and cultural darkness the grand scheme of the powers of darkness is the ruling of the entire world with nothing of God remaining.
Governance of God
THE PLAN OF GOD IS A ONE-WORLD GOVERNANCE with King Jesus the Christ and Father God by The Holy Spirit as supreme.
In this current twenty first century, beginning in the recent past decades, the plan and purpose of God has begun to be seen on a wider scale than at any time since the first century.
In actual numbers there are now more people with eyes to see and ears to hear the gospel of The Kingdom of God coming forth on earth than in the first century.
Make no mistake: One-World Government without God is literally hell on earth.
A One-World Government of The Kingdom of God is literally heaven on earth.
This is the exorbitant division in America!
It is an all-out winner take all division and conflict between the well-ingrained, DEMONICALLY INSPIRED GODLESS HUMANISM against the growing movement toward the HEAVENLY RULE OF GOD as the sovereign governance of Planet Earth.
Please understand that both current major political parties and their philosophies are lacking and neither is the fullness of The Kingdom of God. HOWEVER, ONE IS A MOVEMENT TOWARD The Kingdom of God AND ONE IS A MOVEMENT OF DENYING GOD AND HIS KINGDOM.
God must be reinstated in the lives, homes, governments, and every aspect of culture to further move us toward the reality of The Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. God must not be removed from the government and culture of the nation.
It is only the contaminated religion that needs to be removed and not the reality of God as creator and Lord of all.
The loving rule of God in mankind is the simplicity of the kingdom of heaven on earth.
The Characteristics of One-World Governments
Many books could be and may be written describing the characteristics of one-world governance.
In the simplest terms THE GODLESS ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT is a police state ordered by law that is determined by an elite small group of ruling class. The elite small group makes decisions for the nations and establishes governance in all nations. The established elite government makes all detailed decisions of life for the working class. The laws or rules are enforced with police or military force.
The One-World government of The Kingdom of God is the rule of love from within the hearts and minds of the people. God as sovereign loving ruler abides in and with mankind through King, Lord, and Savior, Christ Jesus by Holy Spirit of God. The result is righteousness, peace, and joy ruling all matters of life and governance on Earth.
The details of the governmental form or structure is not the most important thing. Actually God can work through many forms of governmental structures or forms.
One structure may be better for one nation and another structure for another nation. The important thing above all else is that the people involved in the government are led, inspired, and empowered by God. In other words God must be the head of ALL governance to fully bring His order and ways into this world.
God’s LOVE, power, and wisdom must be the substance that rules in the land to bring forth RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND JOY in this world.
Love and Righteousness in Governance of Nations
What would love and righteousness look like in the government of a nation in this current time of world conditions?
The government form or structure is not the first and primary consideration of Godly governance of the nations and the world.
Different tribal and national situations may need different forms of government to fit the makeup and needs of the specific nations or tribes.
A small tribal nation can function well with a chief as leader that is led of God. Or a larger nation can work well as a dictatorship with a benevolent dictator fully led by God. Or a nation can work well as a democracy as long as the people of the nation are led by God.
The key to the successful governance of nations is that God in Christ by The Holy Spirit is in full control of the people who rule in the land.
A nation led by a God-led chief, president, prime minister, dictator, king and/or queen, parliament, congress, or any other existing structure of government will be blessed and can move toward the fullness of The Kingdom of God on earth.
A nation that denies and excludes God from its governance is destined to suffer and fail no matter how great and powerful it may be for a season.
Any philosophy or system that is not of God and without the leadership of God has its ideology rooted in or infected with the darkness of Satan.
There is no such thing as a neutral government or position. Humanism, intellectualism, socialism, communism, fascism, secularism, materialism, democracy, and any other system will always either serve the one true God or another god.
There is one true God Almighty, the creator and sustainer of all that exists. If the one true God is not the Father and substance of any philosophy or system, then it is fathered by the devil, Satan, and will come to no good end.
Counterfeit Kingdom and Governments
Most often the works of Satan and his demons are counterfeit replicas of God’s original design and plan. Certainly the major issue today of humanistic national and one-world governance concepts without God are examples of the “knock offs” or counterfeits by Satan and the powers of darkness.
However, the fact that there is an existing demonic counterfeit copy indicates that there is indeed a true reality or there could not be a counterfeit.
God’s kingdom of love and righteousness is the created design for the entire world. Love and righteousness are not always accepted or preferred by all of mankind.
Those who for whatever reason reject the love of God also reject the righteousness of God and subsequently despise or hate God and His people as well as His governmental rule.
God’s love is filled with godly compassion, mercy, and grace for all who love God and receive His governance in their lives.
Rejecting the goodness of God becomes the source of grave destructive forces wrecking and destroying the life of all who will not turn to God and receive His love and righteousness.
Remember there is no neutral ground, no space in between. To be lukewarm and to seek a middle ground without God is not okay.
God’s pure holy love causes Him to take strong action against that which is hurting and attempting to destroy His people and His world.
The Current Divided Situation in America
I believe that you can see that the recent government in America is deeply divided. The Trump presidency is a colossal effort to stop the rapid degradation of a once God honoring nation that is being turned away from honoring the one true God.
Personally I do not know of any other person in this world that is more perfectly suited to invade the invalid ungodly and demonic issues and viciously attack and destroy them.
He is not the man to bring forth the fullness of The Kingdom of God, but he is the man of God’s choosing to brazenly attempt to teardown what the enemy has built and make room for others to bring forth the powerful MERCY and GRACE of the LOVE and RIGHTEOUSNESS of The Kingdom of God IN THIS NATION AND THE WORLD.
The lukewarm deceived Church systems are invalid and cannot do anything to turn the evil back. God’s called and sent holy men and women filled with the LOVE, POWER, and WISDOM of God empowered by The Holy Spirit of God MUST ARISE NOW TO FILL THE EARTH WITH THE LOVE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS OF The Kingdom of God IN AMERICA AND THE WORLD.
ARISE IN HUMBLE ADORATION OF GOD’S LOVE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS. WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS!
Sudden Apocalyptic Love Shift
Our human minds cannot conceive; we have no vocabulary to describe, nor imagination to perceive the intervention of God Almighty taking place in this Day of The LORD on Earth.
More than a revival or outpouring, much more than a new season or the turning of a page of time, more than a new chapter, it is ALL THINGS MADE NEW.
When all things are made new, old things have passed away.
Hundreds of millions of people will be gone. Nothing shall remain that lifts itself against God.
Love is the substance of life that remains. The entire planet will be enriched with the ashes of the past. Where there was filth and strife, there will be peace and righteousness.
Where there was disgust and darkness, there will be joy and light. Where there was lack and limitation, there will be the fullness of God with us and all things are possible.
Doubt and unbelief will become faith by love. The beauty of holiness will surround and fill the people and the world.
If you can even begin to imagine these things, you will yet be amazed with the reality of the intervention of God on earth arriving like a worldwide glory cloud filled with pulsating light.
Righteousness like a roaring fire driven in strong wind will destroy the wicked and all that wickedness has built will be consumed from the earth.
Words of the purified and holy people will produce that which is said and no one will prophesy for every word is living and will manifest as they are spoken.
Words of prayer or decree spoken from the mind of a person without God or from any source other than God will perish in smoke.
Miracles of time and matter will be abundant as God works with us, and angels go before us to prepare the way and change the material landscape of the environment in accordance with the needs of provision to accomplish the plan and will of God.
That which once took months will be done in days; that which once would take days is done in minutes. Love rules in every aspect of life and perfect order prevails.
This and much more is prepared now in this life for those who Love God. As love becomes more and more dominant in our lives and old things pass away, we will experience these new ways of life even in the midst of the earth cleansing apocalypse.
11“But you are those who forsake The LORD, who forget My holy mountain, who prepare a table for Gad, and who furnish a drink offering for Meni.
12 Therefore I will number you for the sword, and you shall all bow down to the slaughter; because, when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not hear, but did evil before My eyes, and chose that in which I do not delight.”
13 Therefore thus says The LORD God: “Behold, My servants shall eat, but you shall be hungry; behold, My servants shall drink, but you shall be thirsty; behold, My servants shall rejoice, but you shall be ashamed; 14 Behold, My servants shall sing for joy of heart, but you shall cry for sorrow of heart, and wail for grief of spirit.
17 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered or come to mind. 18 But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create; for behold, I create Jerusalem as a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people; the voice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her, nor the voice of crying. It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, the lion shall eat straw like the ox, and dust shall be the serpent’s food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,” says The LORD,” Isaiah 65:11-25.
Be made whole in His love,
