“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!” – Abraham Lincoln from a National Fast Day proclamation March 30, 1863
“we need men and women in government and other positions of influence who will stand up and declare that what-goes-around-comes-around is valid and that this principle applies not just to individuals but also to nations.
A letter to the editor published in the Sept. 17, 1764, issue of the Boston Gazette, did just that when it asserted:
“There is an inseparable connection between publick virtue and publick happiness: Individuals, we are assured, must render an account hereafter of every part of their moral conduct in this state; but communities, as their existence will cease with this world, can neither be rewarded or punish’d as such in the next: It therefore appears rational to conclude, that present rewards and punishments are distributed to them, according to their present moral behavior.”*
Do you remember how when we gave our parents such hell as kids, every single one of them just looked at us smiling that all-knowing smile…like they could already see us in the future with our own hell-raising kids? And sure enough, here we are living out their parental premonitions to the T! They weren’t clairvoyant…they just knew as their parents knew before them, that certain laws are inescapable!
And yet it as if these lessons were never learned by us! We are us then, and our own kids now looking up at ourselves thinking, “You’re an idiot! I don’t have to listen to you! What do you know?” Only now the hammer of I told you so is much heavier and swinging from a much higher arc because of A) The length of time this reality has been suppressed. And B) the Global nature of the seeds we’ve sewn.
And there is another darker aspect of our predicament. That which remembers us when we’ve forgotten God is in complete manifestation in the very worst of places right now. It promises “Summers of Recovery” while it tightens its grip around the throat of freedom and prosperity. It turns honor into shame and hope into slavery because we mistake it for business as usual…and treat it accordingly! It feeds us lie upon lie…sort of like Chinese Food. We just keep eating and eating and wondering why we’re still hungry!
We can continue to graze like cattle being fattened for slaughter, or we can wake up to the wisdom of the ages and see what this President and All the President’s Men are up to!
