Is America Headed Toward Tyranny?
Nena Arias | October 12, 2020“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34)
You might say, what do you mean in saying that America may be heading toward tyranny? Don’t you know that this is the freest country in the world? There’s no way tyranny could happen in America. Well, if you think tyranny can’t happen in America, think again.
The best way I can explain this to you is to share the following well-researched finding about what has happened in the Cycles of History. See if you can recognize America’s journey reflected in this cycle.
"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.
From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.
The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
- From bondage to spiritual faith;
- From spiritual faith to great courage;
- From courage to liberty;
- From liberty to abundance;
- From abundance to complacency;
- From complacency to apathy;
- From apathy to dependence;
- From dependence back into bondage."
-- Attributed to a Scottish professor of the 18th century, Dr. Alexander Tyler.
Make no mistake, what we are seeing in America is the manifestation of the final step in this cycle that will take us into bondage by the tyranny of men UNLESS we turn back to God and the biblical foundation in the original founding of this country. If we don’t, America won’t be the exception. Turning to God is our only hope and the only hope for all of the human race. Let us repent and humble ourselves before our heavenly Father and turn from our wicked ways. The nearing demise of America is happening because we have allowed it. No more! With God we can make the difference.
