‘When the Righteous succeed the people rejoice,
But when the bad govern, men groan!’ – Proverbs 29:2
PART I > ‘WARS & RUMORS OF WAR’!
When America was founded by Our Pilgrim & Puritan Forefathers, they actually believed that they were in the service of Our Creator and were establishing a second ‘Hebrew Republic’ that would follow the Ten Commandments, Judgments & Statutes as set forth in The Divine Laws for a Righteous Nation on behalf of a Righteous People – at a place in time approximately 2500 years after the fall of the first Hebrew-Republic of the Biblical Israelites – who were conquered first by the Assyrians & then Jerusalem later by the Babylonians, all because the Israelites BROKE the Palestinian Covenant and stopped following The Divine Laws of the Torah! [See 2 Kings 17-25 & 2 Chronicles 32-36].
Yet while the Israelites started out Righteous and then gradually declined and forgot their founding, America began and has continued to be a dichotomy whereby on the one hand we as a people have shared an Open-Outstretched-Hand of Friendship towards others by being a Servant and Witness unto The Divine Laws; we as a people have on the other hand become a wretched tyrant committing war after war that has benefited war-mongers & war-profiteers by stealing the wealth of other peoples & nations – while taxing & killing our own people while at the same time building a huge Military Industrial Complex (MIC)!
In the entirety of the 239 years from the time that America was founded in 1776, until today, AMERICA HAS ONLY BEEN AT ‘PEACE’ FOR A TOTAL OF 21 YEARS! America has been AT WAR for 218 of its 239 years – and then we wonder why all of us are considered an ‘UGLY-AMERICAN’…by other nations… and why we have lost the Trust of other nations!

Biblically speaking, see Matthews, Chapter 24, Verses 1 – 14, to wit:
1. And going out, YaHshua left the sanctuary. And His disciples came to show Him the construction of the sanctuary.
2. But YaHshua said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, There will not at all be left one stone on a stone which in no way will not be thrown down.”
3. And as He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what is the sign of Your coming and the end of the age?”
4. And answering, YaHshua said to them, “See that no man deceives you.
5. For many will come in My Name, saying, I am the Messiah. And they will cause many to be deceived.
6. For you are bound to hear of revolutions and rumors of wars. Watch out and do not be disturbed, for it is necessary that all these things happen, but it is not yet the end.
7. For nation will be raised against nation and kingdom against kingdom; and there will be famines and plagues and earthquakes against many places.
8. But all these are a beginning of sorrows.
9. Then they will deliver you up to affliction, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My Name.
10. And then many will be offended, and they will deliver up one another and will hate one another.
11.And many false prophets will be raised and will deceive many.
12. And because lawlessness shall have been multiplied, the love of the many will grow cold.
13. But the one who endures to the end, that one will have eternal life.
14. And this good news of the Kingdom shall be published in all the earth for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
[EDITOR’S NOTE: The Hebraic Roots Bible is a translation restoring the Sacred Name of Our Creator, YaHoVaH, and His Only Begotten Son, YaHshua, and has the New Testament based on the original Aramaic Peshitta text, the very language that Our Savior spoke. The original New Testament was not written in Greek, but Aramaic. Thus this is a literal translation and is believed to be the closest translation to the original language that was written thousands of years ago - the Bible as it was! The Old Testament is from the original Hebrew manuscripts and the New Testament from the original Aramaic.]
As the above-scripture declares, this is JUST THE BEGINNING and it may very well get worse as time unfolds! But behind every action there is a Cause & Effect – and that’s what this series will also unfold. Instead of America becoming the ‘NEW JERUSALEM’ of the Biblical prophecies, we have become by Biblical definition, the ‘NEW BABYLON’, and the Islamic State of Iraq & The Levant (ISIL), or ‘ISIS’ (Islamic State of Iraq & Syria), has become the ‘NEW ASSYRIA’ of Biblical Prophecy and currently comprises about the same size territory that Biblical Assyria occupied!
In the entirety of ALL AMERICA WARS, from 1775 – 1991, approximately 42 MILLION people have dressed in uniforms of the various services and within the last two-decades that total number of American Veterans has risen close to 60 MILLION! The ‘WARS’ are not getting any easier – and the number of dead & wounded is getting higher proportionately! And our current War with ISIS is just beginning! We reap what we sow!
