America The Unthankful and Doomed
The Ignorant Fishermen.com ^ | November 21, 2012 | DJP I.F.

Posted on 11/21/2012 7:40:43 PM PST by kindred

Well my dear friends... we have arrived at another Thanksgiving Day and we as a nation are more unthankful than ever. It is indeed a sign of the times that we as a nation - founded on moral absolutes and the rule of law - are at a final fatal decline. When millions of Americans receive government befits and many of those have no intention of working or being accountable and are addicted to moral relativism and decadence the jig is up my dear friends. This past 2012 election has showed us that it absolutely pays to be slothful, lazy, greedy, self-serving, lawless, deviant, decadent, deceivers and swindlers, all to serve the narcissistic nature of millions as they hide behind the fortified titled wall, “the poor”. It will be these very individuals who this Thanksgiving will have nothing to be thankful about for they are all takers and not thankers. The majority of these have been bred and raised with an entitlement attitude and have become the greediest of all Americans. They are moochers and takers, idol and swift to exercise their lawlessness and greed. The socially dependent and government addicts of socialism are more greedy then all the Wall Street bankers and brokers put together.

The majority of these have been bred and raised with an entitlement attitude and have become the greediest of all Americans. They are moochers and takers, idol and swift to exercise their lawlessness and greed. .

These expect something for nothing and are absolutely void of self respect (Rom. 1:28-32). These believe that they have a right to all that they desire and others should pay their tab to feed their godless passions and sloth. It is absolutely tragic, for in their dependent and socialistic greed they have allowed the state and Satan to hold over them a ceiling of tyranny and remove from them their personal accountability and personal responsibility to society and to Almighty God (2 Tim. 4:1-7). The majority of these individuals (red, yellow, black and white) whose lives revolve around their narcissistic ambitions this Thanksgiving Day will be UNTHANKFUL to Almighty God their Creator and to the American working taxpayers who make their slothful and lawless existence accessible to the idol playground in which they indulge themselves in (Rom 1:18-32, 2 Tim 3:1-7, Jude 1:10). Almighty God is NOT a respecter of persons and will Judge all in that Day according to His RIGHTEOUS STANDARD, the LORD Jesus Christ (Rom. 10:2-4, Rev. 20:11-15). To these, America is the “Land of Give It To Me” and NOT the Land of opportunity.

Another group of Americans that covers the whole political spectrum (Left and Right) are those that work and do provide for themselves. It will be this Thanksgiving that these will get together and enjoy the fruits of their labors with family and friends. They will eat, drink and be merry NEVER once bowing their heads to Almighty God with thanksgiving (Rom. 1:20-21). To these, Thanksgiving Day has become all about THEM and their families. That is what Thanksgiving Day has become here in America. America - whether on the dole or off of it - has highjacked Thanksgiving Day and instead of thanking Almighty God they have become UNTHANKFUL to Him and have EXCLUDED Him (Rom. 1:18-21). These will indulge in the bountiful provisions of this nation oblivious that it is Almighty God from whom all blessing flow. When a nation which was founded on Judeo/Christian values has turn their backs to reality and have gone a whoring after the “gods” of godless moral relativism and self gratitude what hope is there for her?

When a nation which was founded on Judeo/Christian values has turn their backs to reality and have gone a whoring after the “gods” of godless moral relativism and self gratitude what hope is there for her?

On both accounts (the dependent and sufficient), I have personally seen and experience harsh people and dear people exclude Almighty God on a Day that was set apart to remember Him. Godlessness and unthankfulness to Almighty God exists throughout the political spectrum and is found just as much in conservatism as in liberalism. A thankful heart will acknowledge Almighty God in spirit and truth and an unthankful heart will not (John 3:19-21, 4:24). The victicrats live as kings and the successful as lords. We as a nation today take everything for granted. We have more than any individuals throughout history have ever had and yet we are unthankful and unsatisfied. Kings have never eaten and had such possessions as we do here today that we look at as common and simple. We as a nation have been over run with want and greed.

The victicrats live as kings and the successful as lords. We as a nation today take everything for granted. We have more than any individuals throughout history have ever had and yet we are unthankful and unsatisfied.

We as a nation are NOT content and are NOT satisfied. We want, want, want and none of it EVER feeds our famished soul (Eccl. 3; 2 Peter 2:10-14). Only Almighty God the ETERNAL can do that! From conservatism to liberalism, from the rich to the middle class to the entitled victicrat to those who are truly poor, personal gain trumps Almighty God and His ETERNAL saving solution for the individual today. We as a nation today have chosen government in place of the Savior. We have chosen materialism in place of spiritualism (Luke, 12:16-23, James5:1-6). We have chosen a delusional moral relativism in place of REALITY (Rom.1:18-32, 2 Tim. 3:1-7, 2 Peter 2:1-2). We have chosen self created “good works” instead of Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rom. 10:2-4). We have chosen our wants, desires and wishes over our desperate need for a Savior (Prov. 27:20, 2 Peter 2:10-14). We have desired and chosen the temporal comforts and delusions of this fallen world over the ETERNAL REALITIES of peace, rightness and immortality (Isa. 28:15, 32:17, Rom. 14:17, Gal. 5:19-23, James 3:18); and yes my dear friends, we as a nation have in our heart of hearts have chosen death, Hell and Satan over the ETERNAL LOVE, PERSON AND BLISS of Almighty God (Isa.28:15, 1 Cor. 2:9, Rev. 21, 22:1-5). An unthankful heart and a heart that cannot express true thankfulness to the God of ALL creation is indeed a wasteland and a desolation ripe for Hell’s ETERNAL prison hold (i.e., The Lake of Fire) – Rom. 1;21-22, Rev. 20:11-15. This is where we are as a nation today.

An unthankful heart and a heart that cannot express true thankfulness to the God of ALL creation is indeed a wasteland and a desolation ripe for Hell’s ETERNAL prison hold (i.e., The Lake of Fire).

My dear friends there is a remnant (Isa. 1:4-9) throughout this nation today that still chooses to follow Almighty God and knows His Son as their personal Savior as the Holy Scriptures so teach (John 1:12). They are thankful daily for all that Almighty God has provided for them (in time and in ETERNITY) and they are found throughout the social classes today (1 Cor. 10:31). Sadly these are outcasts, rejected and scoffed at by the political parties of today and this godless nation. UNTHANKFULNESS has engulfed our nation and it has taking its toll on our society and culture. We have much my beloved to be thankful for today and everyday. Thanksgiving Day is the norm for the child of God who desires God’s will for their lives and fully appreciates the Savior’s ETERNAL LOVE (Col. 3:16, Phil. 4:4).

Paul warned us what would be the climate of the Last Days and we are fully there as a nation and a world.

Paul stated;

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." (2 Tim. 3:1-7)

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

We should be the takers, motivated people who know hard work would be able to take a LOT more than lazy leeches and we can collapse things faster and start the reset sooner.

It’s “idle”, not “idol”. Two totally different words, meanings.

If you’re going to take pen to paper/fingers to keyboard to sway minds, master the basics, goddamnit.

Otherwise....good post. Bump.

Your assessment is accurate.

We have seen the scales tip but the Remnant must remain faithful until all is fullfilled.

We lament and rejoice simultaneously as we draw breath!

An interesting thing: I’m not naturally a thankful person, so when I experience true thankfulness I’m in awe of it as a gift from God! I’m not a good person. But when God intervenes I experience His goodness and get a lift.

I relate to a line in Shakespeare: “But we worldly men have miserable, mad, mistaking eyes!” Apart from the gift of revelation from Him, we’re toast.

God has blessed me with much. And I am thankful for that. But tomorrow, when I give thanks, for the first time I will not express thanks for the country I live in. The country I was thankful for is gone.

What’s really sad? Welfare is never enough to break free. Yes. The recipients survive, but they do not thrive. They are unlikely to ever know their true potential.

I always find some things about life sad. When I grew up as a kid, building small houses, forts, and treehouses in the woods was a fun pasttime, sadly, it seems a lot more uncommon in this rising generation. It’s pretty sad, nothing like living life with a little craftsmanship. That being said, though, I have a great new life to be thankful for with marriage and a child along the way, plus a wonderful wife, who shares a similar constructive, crafty, interest that compliments mine. These are the two great things I have to be thankful for right now, plus more. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you Freepers out there too!

I look forward hopefully to see Jesus come again, because I would absolutely love to share the good news that he’s back. I have a somewhat optimistic view that whomever is left and remained faithful up until that point will have a lot to do in that regard.

The last 4 years have been difficult for me, but I have plenty to be thankful for—and I am. I have enough sense not to take anyone or anything for granted.

we must remember that the war has already been won
death conquered and our salvation purchased with the blood of christ on the cross

satan is the master of lies and deception and loves despair and hopelessness
do not let him win

the battle is for souls. it is only with christian kindness and love of neighbor that hearts will be changed

I’m not ready to give up on America. As God told the prophet, when he lamented that he alone was left to serve God, God reminded him that he had reserved to Himself 7 thousand who had not bowed the knee to Baal. There are many more than 7 thousand in this land who have not bowed the knee, and serve God and Him alone, and I believe that God is getting ready to unleash a spiritual awakening on this land that will be unlike anything ever seen before. God is not done with us yet, and the wicked shall be brought down, corruption shall be exposed, and the land will be cleansed. It seems that sometimes it takes hard times for people to turn to Him. Those times are upon us. Those who turn to Him shall find strength and will be able to withstand the evil that threatens to overrun this land, It will not succeed. God is not finished with America.

Great post! America - I do not believe - will get a “reset”. God is indeed merciful and God truly has “shed his grace on thee” but we’ve thrown it back in his face. I think America is in line for judgement. It may not be biblical in proportions. It may just be the direction a country takes when it no longer acknowledges God and trusts in him - but depends on human wisdom. You know, sort of like N. Korea. Time will tell. One thing is for sure, Christians are about to experience real discrimination and persecution - much like the rest of the world has. But that’s really cause for rejoicing. The real believers will shine brightly in the ever growing darkness that’s sure to come, the pretenders will be revealed for what they were all along and… the return of the real King can not be stopped. The heathen will continue to rage and imagine a vain thing (that they will depose God himself) - just like they’ve always done. The rebellion continues. The horror that is coming will reveal just how stubborn and in love with unrighteousness mankind really is. But God laughs at them because he is going to set his son as the King over all the earth and there’s not a thing they can do to stop him as Psalm 2 so movingly states. This is the “good news” of the Gospel. Be sure to spread it.

(“The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!”
Indeed!)

Zechariah 14

14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

14:2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

14:3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

14:5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

14:6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

14:7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

14:8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

14:10 All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses.

14:11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

14:12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

14:13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.

14:14 And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.

14:15 And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.

14:16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

14:17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

14:18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

14:19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

14:20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar.

14:21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.
