ARE CONSEQUENCES FOR AMERICA'S REBELLION AGAINST GOD
By Dr. Carl Parnell,

America's as a nation has turned its back on the Lord God Jehovah. This can clearly be seen in the ungodly antics of the politicians and the sinful demands of its citizenry. As a result, America's politicians and millions of its citizens, according to the Word of God, will incur the wrath of God at some point in time. Of course, most politicians and any other persons who have rebelled against the commandments of God would label anyone who suggested such an outrageous assumption as being mentally disturbed or maybe even psycho. But, despite what gainsayers would say, the Bible clearly states the destiny of such rebellious people who have put God on the back burner in exchange for freedom to do anything that they so desire.
In Psalm 9:17, King David, the writer of most of the Psalms and who was inspired of the Holy Spirit, states that “the wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” However, if a person disagrees with the premise of King David, they need to realize that, according to II Timothy 3:16, all scripture is inspired of God. Of course, there are many other scriptures throughout the Bible that concur with what King David wrote many years ago. But, the Book of Psalms alone has many other scriptures that confirm King David's original promise of destruction to any nation that turns its back on God. Of course, the mere fact that many Americans have labeled the Bible a hate book gives credence to the warning from the Lord God Jehovah.
Also, America's Supreme Court has made two landmark decisions dealing with abortion and same-sex marriage that infers that this judicial body has the authority to override the authority of the Creator of the Universe and His Holy Word. Needless to say, the inspired scriptures from the Book of Psalms will declare the foolishness of the actions of men in general and specifically the United States Supreme Court, as well as any politician who puts himself above the Most Holy God, the Lord God Jehovah. Ultimately, it is bad enough that American politicians are constantly usurping the authority of the Constitution and enacting politically-correct, anti-God laws that attempt to control even a person's thoughts and opinions, especially if that person is against abortion and same-sex marriage and is a Christian. But, it is even more egregious to attempt to usurp the authority of the Lord God Almighty. Unfortunately, for those who are guilty of such heinous actions toward God, it never will work. As the following scriptures will so indicate, a judgment day is coming for those who mock God and or blaspheme His Holy Name, regardless if they believe it or not.
Now, let’s look at the inspired scriptures in the Book of Psalms that depict present-day America and its ultimate demise as the greatest nation in the world, unless it comes back to the only true and living God. Therefore, since the World of God is the Absolute Truth, let it speak for itself.
so the wicked!
They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
Psalm 2: 1,2,3,4 and 5
do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?
2 The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
3 “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.”
4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.
5 He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath.
2 How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?
Psalm 5:4-6, 9-10
you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness; with you, evil people
are not welcome.
5 The arrogant cannot stand in your presence. You hate all who do wrong;
6 you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful you, Lord, detest.
9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with malice. Their throat is an open grave; with their tongues they tell lies.
10 Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you.
Psalm 7: 14-16
is pregnant with evil conceives trouble and gives birth to disillusionment.
15 Whoever digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit they have made.
16 The trouble they cause recoils on them; their violence comes down on their own heads.
Psalm 9: 15-17
nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught
in the net they have hidden.
16 The Lord is known by his acts of justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.
17 The wicked go down to the realm of the dead, all the nations that forget God.
Psalm 10: 2-4, 6, 7, 11 and 13
his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the
schemes he devises.
3 He boasts about the cravings of his heart; he blesses the greedy and reviles the Lord.
4 In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God. 6He says to himself, “Nothing will ever shake me.” He swears, “No one will ever do me harm.” 7His mouth is full of lies and threats; trouble and evil are under his tongue.
11 He says to himself, “God will never notice; he covers his face and never sees.” Why does the wicked man revile God?
13 Why does he say to himself, “He won’t call me to account”?
Psalm 11: 6
6 On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot.
Psalm 12: 1-4
Lord, for no one is faithful anymore; those who are loyal have vanished
from the human race.
2 Everyone lies to their neighbor; they flatter with their lips but harbor deception in their hearts.
3 May the Lord silence all flattering lips and every boastful tongue—
4 those who say, “By our tongues we will prevail; our own lips will defend us—who is lord over us?”
Psalm 14: 1-3
fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt,
their deeds are vile;
there is no one who does good.
2 The Lord looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.
3 All have turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.
Psalm 16: 4
4 Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more. I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods or take up their names on my lips.
Psalm 18: 7, 8, 13, 14 and 15
earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook;
they trembled because he was angry.
8 Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it.
13 The Lord thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded.
14 He shot his arrows and scattered the enemy, with great bolts of lightning he routed them.
15 The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at your rebuke, Lord, at the blast of breath from your nostrils.
Psalm 21: 9, 11
Lord will swallow them up in his wrath, and his fire will consume them.
11 Though they plot evil against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed.
Psalm 28: 4 and 5
them for their deeds and for their evil work; repay them for what their
hands have done and bring back on them what they deserve.
5 Because they have no regard for the deeds of the Lord and what his hands have done, he will tear them down and never build them up again.
Psalm 29: 3, 4, 5, 7, 8 and 9
voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord
thunders over the mighty waters.
4 The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic.
5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
7 The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning.
8 The voice of the Lord shakes the desert; the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the Lord twists the oaks and strips the forests bare.
Psalm 33: 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16
is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind;
14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth—
15 he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do
16 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.
Psalm 36: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 12
have a message from God in my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:
There is no fear of God before their eyes.
2 In their own eyes they flatter themselves too much to detect or hate their sin.
3 The words of their mouths are wicked and deceitful; they fail to act wisely or do good.
4 Even on their beds they plot evil; they commit themselves to a sinful course
and do not reject what is wrong.
12 See how the evildoers lie fallen—thrown down, not able to rise!
Psalm 37: 1 and 2
not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong;
2 for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.
Psalm 44: 1, 2 and 3
have heard it with our ears, O God; our ancestors have told us
what you did in their days in days long ago.
2 With your hand you drove out the nations and planted our ancestors;
you crushed the peoples and made our ancestors flourish.
3 It was not by their sword that they won the land,
nor did their arm bring them victory; it was your right hand, your arm, and the light of your face, for you loved them.
Psalm 46: 6
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
Psalm 49: 12, 13 and 14
despite their wealth, do not endure; they are like the beasts that perish.
13 This is the fate of those who trust in themselves, and of their followers, who approve their sayings.
14 They are like sheep and are destined to die; death will be their shepherd (but the upright will prevail over them in the morning). Their forms will decay in the grave, far from their princely mansions.
Psalm 50: 3, 4, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23
God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him, and around
him a tempest rages.
4 He summons the heavens above, and the earth, that he may judge his people:
16 But to the wicked person, God says “What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips?
17 You hate my instruction and cast my words behind you.
18 When you see a thief, you join with him; you throw in your lot with adulterers.
19 You use your mouth for evil and harness your tongue to deceit.
20 You sit and testify against your brother and slander your own mother’s son.
21 When you did these things and I kept silent, you thought I was exactly like you. But I now arraign you and set my accusations before you
22 “Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:
23 Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.”
