I do not claim to be an economist. I do not really know or understand how tax systems work. I have no idea what it is that causes or hinders economic growth. When people make claims that they will ensure millions of new jobs, I have no grid to filter their plan through. I do know that a country (and household) is better off when it spends less than it makes. But how all economic growth works out, I have no idea.
One of the great concerns in this previous election was America's economics. As you know, the last four years have not been very good. There are more and more people out of work. Our nation is falling more and more into debt. The value of the American dollar continues to decline. The future does not look as bright as it has in the past for the American people.
Well, I think I found the answer. It's actually not a new answer. It is an old answer. It is an answer that on the surface might not make sense. But I want to propose to you that it is one of the main reasons for our economic struggles over the past four years (and probably for the next four). Here it is. Ready?
The Key to America's Economic Success = Bless the Nation of Israel!
There it is. I said it. Could it possibly be that the problem with the decline of our nation economically is because over the past four years, President Obama has distanced himself from being an alley with Israel? I know what you might be thinking: "How is our support for one of the smallest nations on earth the key to our economic success?" The answer to that question is found in God's covenant with Abraham as the father of the Jewish people. In Genesis 12, we see God calling Abram (his name will soon be changed to Abraham) to leave his country and start a new nation.
"Now the Lord said to Abram, 'Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.'" (Genesis 12:1-3)
God is very clear in his promise to Abram. He is going to make a great nation out of him. From him, all the nations of the earth will be blessed (we ultimately see that in the fact that Jesus comes as a Jew to die for the sins of all nations). But God also very clearly says that He will bless those who bless Abram (implication is his nation). And God will curse the one who dishonors the nation of Israel.
For many years, the United States has been one of the closest alleys to the nation of Israel. We have defended them. We have fought for them. And our economy has flourished. There is no doubt in my mind that God has blessed our country because we have blessed God's chosen people. But over the past several years, we have begun the process of not honoring them. And I wonder if we are now feeling, not only God's withdrawal of blessing, but maybe His cursing of our nation.
Mr. President, you have an option. You can either continue your trajectory away from blessing this small nation and continue to feel the sting of a downward economic culture. Or you can restore our national stance of blessing this small country and feel the upward swing of economic success. The choice is yours. As an American who loves my country, but loves the Lord God more, I beg of you to turn your policies back towards being a safeguard of the nation of Israel. For our sakes. For their safety. And for the glory of God.
Do You Think Our Stance On The Nation Of Israel Has An Affect On Our Economic Success?
