What has caused the Oil Energy Crisis in America?
April 28, 2012
Faith gives spiritual power over the natural. Trusting in the power of God has seen armies of 185,000 defeated without man lifting a finger (2 Kings 19:35). Faith has seen the walls of a city fall down at the sound of a trumpet followed by a great shout (Joshua 6:20). Faith has caused the nation Israel to walk through supernaturally parted seas to the other side, before the sea covered over the nation’s enemies of Egypt (Exodus 14:21-31).
The flip side of the coin is found in I Corinthians 15:45-46. And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. Seemingly, the inability for America to drill for oil, is the natural picture of the spiritual problem caused by lack of drilling into the Bible to gain the power imbedded in the knowledge of the Word. Our lives are in agreement with Adam, the natural man, and in rebellion to Jesus, the spiritual Man.
America is in a spiritual crisis, which comes when she no longer trusts in the supernatural power of God, the power given only to a country ruled by Him. If God creates by the Word, it is by the Word He also sustains. The Word is the spiritual oil that drives all the engines of the nation. When we cease to tap into the Word, we lose the spiritual oil that keeps us functioning successfully. God will show the spiritual problem with a natural expression of it.
The oil energy crisis caused by refusal to allow the nation to drill into her own oil resources is but a symbol of her spiritual malaise, which is responsible in the natural for a decline in the job market, the loss of Americans’ homes and the escalating prices of food. Obama is an agent of liberalism within Satan’s camp, who wants to make America dependent upon the oil or spiritual forces driving the eastern nations. There is a clash of spiritual warfare going on now in the heavenly realm, for God is getting ready to allow Satan’s religious rulers to battle it out for control over the entire world so that all those who depend on the power of God and His truth, will face extreme persecution in the coming days.
At the same time, the rise of the Tea Party movement is the symbol of those who want to escape the bondage of the satanic forces, which would destroy America. The problem is that fewer and fewer Americans actually are separated unto God from the religions of the world. Doctrines of Christianity have become the force of Satan within the institutional church. For this reason, the true church must separate into the only protected realm there is on earth, which is found in the protection of God.
The church must come out of the religious system of a myriad of doctrines and land firmly on the solid rock foundation of truth, built for her as her foundation by the apostles, so she might become the pillars of the church established by the Lord Jesus Christ. It is referred to as the Church of Philadelphia in the book of Revelation, chapter 3, with the city of this same name in America being the home for the Liberty Bell and the Declaration, which made God Ruler over the nation, with His Word, the foundation for real justice for all.
The deceit of Washington is the practice of using and twisting the Word, as did Satan twist God’s words, only to serve the government purposes of rulers bent on returning America to the bondage of the eastern, religious, empire-building nations from which she had escaped. The truth of Washington bringing this crisis upon the nation is found in its methodical removal of the energizing power of the Word and its use for protecting her borders.
The flood-gates of the sea have been breached and, like the destroyed rivets of man, allowing the water to pour into the Titanic, there no longer is a power from above to keep the seawater from pouring into the sinking ship of America. She is quickly moving toward the One World Order and back to Babel, whence she came. Her religious, tower-building programs are resulting in a nation no longer under God’s energy, but rather one dependent upon the oil of the East and the strength of a United Nations’ religious controls. The U.N. seeks peace on its terms, apart from the peace, which only God can give. It represents the interests of the East, but not of Israel or America, in the West.
The natural situation, in which we find ourselves entrapped, is, again, a picture of our spiritual malaise. Obama wants the religious East to maintain its natural energy power over America; so we see him endorsing the burning of Bibles, while forbidding the burning of the Koran. Are the religious institutions of Christianity not falling right in behind him, like ducks in a row, as they preach respect for all religions, which really means total disrespect for the supremacy of the God of truth, the one true God above all other gods?
America is in dire need of developing her own oil self-sufficiency, just as she is in need of returning Bibles to the schoolrooms, borders and courtrooms, with God on His rightful throne of power over this nation.
“You shall keep My statutes. You shall not let your livestock breed with another kind. You shall not sow your field with mixed seed. Nor shall a garment of mixed linen and wool come upon you (Leviticus 19:19).” There can be no blending of America’s energy policies with any other nation of the world, for it will open the flood-gates of sin, and sin is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34). Sin is the result of spiritual drilling being stopped with the Bible being methodically removed from the public square.
So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you (Luke 17:6).’” Now, I ask you, is it possible Jesus was lying? Of course it is not possible, for He is the truth, and the Word made flesh.
Is it not time to start tapping into His Word so that drilling for oil in this nation can begin in earnest once again? Do not think for a minute that anything is holding us back other than our God who can release His power in the natural at any time, but only when we trust in Him to do so.
