Why is The United States Of America ( now ): " Living Under Judgment "... and, what does that mean for our nation, as a whole?

Is there a meaning to: " Bye Bye American Pie "?
By this point, into the twenty first century, Most Reasonable Americans [ or, those actually possessing: " That Native Common Sense Of Their Own Historical Fathers " ] are now beginning to perceive that Something Has Definitely Gone Wrong With The American Experiment.

After all, it doesn't take An Actual Rocket Scientist [ of which we now have very few to spare thanks to our own current financial indebtedness ] to notice All Of Those Extremely Distressing Signs Of Our Own Societal Decay!

In fact, anyone at all can ( quite truthfully ) see All Of The Following Physical & Spiritual Signs:
  • Our Own Government Is Now Quite-Seriously Broken Politically...
  • Those Two Prominent Parties Are Incapable Of Openly Working Together...
  • It Hasn't Even Passed An Actual National Budget Since 2009...
  • Our Much-Needed Physical Infrastructure Isn't Being Safely Maintained...
  • Its Physical Indebtedness Can No Longer Be Quite Honestly Ignored...
  • The People Are Polarized Around Far Too Many Societal Divisions...
  • There Is No Respect For: Human Life, Individual Freedom, Or The Law...
  • Mass Shootings Are Now Breaking Out Everywhere People Are Gathered...
  • And, Absolutely None Of Our Own Societal Institutions Are Trustworthy...
{ ***NOTE: In fact, these are just A Few Of The More Prominent Difficulties, in their own right, which are each just The Noticeable Symptoms Of A Much Greater Spiritual And National Problem. }

It's ( now ) time to: " Face The Music "....
Meanwhile, of course, ' Every Single Idol, Which We Have So Long Ago Placed Before God, Has Has Now Finally Been Exposed For The Foolishness That It Always Has Been '....
  • Our Currency Is Just As Debased As Our Leadership...
  • Our Businessmen Are Only Driven By An Unethical Means To A Profit...
  • Our Economists Are Too Terrified To Tell Anyone The Truth... 
  • Our Bankers Can No Longer Keep Juggling The Books...
  • Our Newsmen Care Nothing About Reporting The Real News... 
  • Our Teachers Are Spending All Of Their Time Just Brainwashing Our Children...
  • Our Preachers Are Now Just Doing Stand Up Comedy & Dancing For More Of That Money...
  • Our Law Enforcement Officers Have Forgotten How To Administer The Peace...
  • And, Our Judges Believe That They Are The Ones Who Actually Determine The Law....
{ ***NOTE: In fact, each and every one of These Fundamental Societal Institutions has been Excessively Corrupted From Within. }
Because: " This Is Really Gonna Hurt "....
And, in the meantime, ' A Nation Which Still Claims To Have A Special Relationship With God Is Now Suffering The Consequences Of Being Judged Among His Own Enemies '....
  • Being Mercilessly Burned Up By Wildfire...
  • Suffering From Alternating Periods Of Drought And Flood...
  • With Mudslides Consuming Whole Neighborhoods...
  • Sinkholes Opening Up Underneath Our Buildings And Structures...
  • Gas Lines Now Exploding In All Of Those Urban Cities...
  • Water Lines Now Flooding Our Campuses And Streets...
  • Bridges Collapsing Underneath Our Own Traffic...
  • Overpasses Now Collapsing Upon Cars...
  • Air Traffic Falling Everyday From Those Skies...
  • Trains Derailing Within Our Own Gargantuan Cities...
  • And, National Emergencies More Common And Destructive Than Ever Before....


So, Why Is America Now: " Living Under Judgment " - When, Despite All Of Our Own Historical Shortcomings, We Have Never Quite Witnessed It Before?

When judging The Primary Character Of A Nation, God isn't actually looking at: Every Single Individual Involved, That Which Is Done Out Of Ignorance, or ( even ) The Occasional Hubris Of Our Own Most Arrogant Pride...  in fact, He is looking at ' The Overall Conduct Of Its Numerous People, Throughout The Entire Body, With Respect To His Own Well-Adjudicated Laws '!

After all, when questioned by Abraham about: " The Destruction Of Sodom & Gomorrah "; and, once again reiterated, by His Own Testimony To Jonah with regards to: " The One Hundred And Twenty Thousand Persons Then Living In Nineveh ";  we can now read ( the following biblical statements ):

An excerpt from Genesis [ Sodom & Gomorrah ] -
" And The Lord said: ' Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know it. ' 
Then, the men turned away from there, and went toward Sodom; but Abraham still stood before The Lord.
And, Abraham came near and said: ' Would You also destroy The Righteous with The WickedSuppose there were Fifty Righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for The Fifty Righteous that were in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay The Righteous with The Wicked, so that The Righteous should be as The Wicked; far be it from You! Shall not The Judge Of All The Earth do right? '
So, The Lord said: ' If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes. '
Then, Abraham answered, and said: ' Indeed now, I who am but dust and ashes have taken it upon myself to speak to The Lord: suppose there were Five Less Than The Fifty Righteous; would You destroy all of the city for lack of five? '
So, He said: ' If I find there Forty-Five, I will not destroy it. '
And, he spoke to Him yet again, and said: ' Suppose there should be Forty found there? '
So, He said: ' I will not do it for The Sake Of Forty. '
Then, he said: ' Let not The Lord be angry, and I will speak: suppose Thirty should be found there? '
So, He said: ' I will not do it if I find Thirty there. '
And, he said: ' Indeed now, I have taken it upon myself to speak to The Lord: suppose Twenty should be found there? '
So, He said: ' I will not destroy it for The Sake Of Twenty. '
Then, he said: ' Let not The Lord be angry, and I will speak but once more: suppose Ten should be found there? '
And, He said: ' I will not destroy it for The Sake Of Ten. '
So, The Lord went His way as soon as He had finished speaking with Abraham; and Abraham returned to his place. " - Genesis 18:20-33.
And, an excerpt from Jonah Chapters 3 & 4 [ Those People Of Nineveh ]
" Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from The Disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.
But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he became angry. So he prayed to The Lord, and said: ' Ah, Lord, was not this what I said, when I was still in my country? Therefore, I fled previously to Tarshish; for I know that You Are A Gracious And Merciful God, slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness, and one who relents from doing harm. Therefore now, O Lord, please take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live! '
Then, The Lord said: ' Is it right for you to be angry? '
So, Jonah went out of the city and sat upon the east side of the city. There he made himself a shelter and sat under it in the shade, till he might see what would become of the city. And The Lord God prepared a plant and made it come up over Jonah, that it might be shade for his head to deliver him from his misery. So, Jonah was very grateful for the plant. 
But as morning dawned the next day God prepared a worm, and it so damaged the plant that it withered. And it happened, when the sun arose, that God prepared a vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon Jonah’s head, so that he grew faint. Then he wished death for himself, and said: ' It is better for me to die than to live. '
Then, God said to Jonah: ' Is it right for you to be angry about the plant? '
And, he said: ' It is right for me to be angry, even to death! '
But, The Lord said: ' You have had pity on the plant for which you have not labored, nor made it grow, which came up in a night and perished in a night. And, should I not pity Ninevehthat great city - in which are more than one hundred and twenty thousand persons who cannot discern between their right hand and their left—and much livestock? ' " - Jonah 3:10-4:11

 " LOST? " - Well, You Don't Have To Be!
So you see, dear brothers and sisters, ' When The Lord Finally Passes Judgment Upon A Nation, Those Who Consider Themselves To Be The Most Righteous Ones Of Them All Are Already ( Quite Often ) The Ones Most Egregiously Wrong '!

After all, He's Actively Looking For Any Reasonable Excuse To ( Quite Honestly ) Now Spare You From Any More Of That Suffering....


Ahava and Shalom.

May Yahweh's Own: Love and Peace - be upon you!
