The Secret ti America’s Early Prosperity

We can find the secret to America’s early prosperity from the pen of George Washington:

“No Country upon Earth ever had it more in its power to attain these blessings than United America. Wondrously strange then, and much to be regretted indeed would it be, were we to neglect the means, and to depart from the road which Providence has pointed us to, so plainly; I cannot believe it will ever come to pass. The great Governor of the Universe has led us too long and too far on the road to happiness and glory, to forsake us in the midst of it. By folly and improper conduct, proceeding from a variety of causes, we may now and then get bewildered; but I hope and trust that there is good sense and virtue enough left to recover the right path before we shall be entirely lost (Washington, George (1788), emp. added).

Sadly, America has abandoned its original pure status and have adopted secular humanistic views that opposed the Christian teachings of the Bible and thus is losing its original prosperity. And because of this, the future looks grim with the National Debt that reached the point of no return and will lead to its ruin.

With the impending economic collapse, the only hope for America’s prosperity is to accept God’s cure and go back to Him:

“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God… But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: The LORD will send on you cursing, confusion, and rebuke in all that you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly, because of the wickedness of your doings in which you have forsaken Me (Deuteronomy 28:1-2,15,20, emp. added).

God’s desire that His people in America may humble themselves, forsake their sins, and turn to Him and live in peace. God takes no delight in the suffering and death of His people, and urgently calls upon His children in this land to repent that iniquity shall not lead to national ruin (Isaiah 1:18–20; Jeremiah 25:5; Ezekiel 18:30–32; Hosea 6:1).
