1. Economic problems and a reliance on imported workers.
2. The rise of the Eastern Empire.
3. Over expansion and increased military spending.
4. Government corruption and political chaos.
5. The migration of barbarian tribes into Rome.
6. Weakening of the Roman army.
As you can see, Rome experienced precisely the upheaval that now attempts to break the union of the American States apart. We have major economic problems and have imported workers to do the jobs Americans don't want to do. Russia and China have risen up economically, and militaristically, and they are a threat to the American way of life. We have expanded wars with countries in the Middle East, and have increased our military spending considerably. Our government is corrupted, and there is political chaos abounding. We are being 'attacked' by migrating lower class persons from all over the world. They are bringing with them their own social status, and have no intent on assimilating into traditional American, Christian, culture. So you can understand that by past history there is every reason to believe that America, like the great Western Roman Empire, is doomed. But there is a difference, and this difference can be a major 'game breaker'. Christianity was one of the factors that doomed the Roman Empire.........and if we take this fact to heart we can see that what doomed Rome just might be what saves America. Christianity. Isn't it time that we stand strong, and take back America through Christianity?
"For the sons of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, until all the nation, that is, the men of war who came out of Egypt, perished because they did not listen to the voice of the LORD, to whom the LORD had sworn that He would not let them see the land which the LORD had sworn to their fathers to give us, a land flowing with milk and honey." -Joshua 5:6.
Is it possible that the Lord has spoken to us Christian citizens of America? And is it possible that if we do not listen to the voice of the Lord, we shall be also be doomed to wander in the 'wilderness' until all these deaf Christians perish?
