Scripture: Deuteronomy 32:7-12, Deuteronomy 32:13,14
Deuteronomy 32:7-9 says, “Remember the days of old, Consider the years of many generations. Ask your father, and he will show you; Your elders, and they will tell you: When the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations, When He separated the sons of Adam, He set the boundaries of the peoples According to the number of the children of Israel. For the Lord’s portion is His people; Jacob is the place of His inheritance.” What does this passage mean? When the land suffers under the outcry of crushing debt, the outcry demands a judicial response. And the judicial response goes back to…When God created the heavens and the earth, He assigned His believing sons and daughters to the land that He endowed with resources that would sustain them until they could perform their gifting and calling. If America has a God-given end-time call, then the resources are within this land to fulfill it. And freedom from crushing debt is available if we can overcome the distortion of truth! Deuteronomy 32:10-12 says, “He found him in a desert land And in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye. As an eagle stirs up its nest, Hovers over its young, Spreading out its wings, taking them up, Carrying them on its wings, So the Lord alone led him, And there was no foreign god with him.” This is the issue of righteousness. If we will embrace righteousness, it will qualify us to go onto the next step of the way of the Lord. If we embrace righteousness, we qualify to do judgment. And if Deuteronomy is to be believed, judgment can help deliver our nation from crushing debt. Righteousness precedes the judgment that can set a nation free. Will we say yes to the righteousness that can set our nation free from the outcry of crushing debt? Deuteronomy 32:13,14 say, “He made him ride in the heights of the earth, That he might eat the produce of the fields; He made him draw honey from the rock, And oil from the flinty rock; Curds from the cattle, and milk of the flock, With fat of lambs; And rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, With the choicest wheat; And you drank wine, the blood of the grapes.” It is obvious that God endowed the nation of America with oil. America, in fact, has enough oil to pay off our $18 trillion dollar national debt. But politics prevent us from tapping that resource. Voters check ballot boxes and choose our inept leaders. And those leaders appoint our judges, create policy and vote on issues that govern our nation. When such leadership crescendos to a debt of $18 trillion and refuses to allow us to use our natural resources to pay off that debt, we have a situation akin to what we find in Deuteronomy. Will we have to do judgment to set the nation free from crippling debt? It seems we are in a place where only judicial prayers can save our nation. Crushing debt brings an outcry. God placed resources in this nation that are necessary for us to fulfill our call in the last days. In Revelation 12, America may be the great eagle. We are to make sure that Israel gets grafted back in and our nation cannot be destroyed until they are grafted back in (Romans 11). Isn’t it time we fulfilled what God called us to do? Our nation’s outcry, our nation’s zah-ak, demands we pray judgment on the people and leaders who are acting to facilitate the debt that threatens our very existence!
