The Wicked Borrows and Won’t Pay His Debt
“The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender” - (Prov.22:7).
“The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth” - (Ps.37:21).
Obama’s administration has a dependency agency that has seized banks, insurance, and automobile companies to its supervision. The presidency is becoming socialistic and more and more powerful. California is far in debt and will petition Washington for a bailout and the state will become a poodle on a short leash held by Obama. Obama may soon effectively be California's governor and the state will lose freedoms because of it. Rich Washington will rule because the borrower is servant to the lender. The states will lose their rights.
The U.S. has become very wicked and the root cause is the love of money to pay for all our covetousness. “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows” - (I Tim.6:10). People borrow money and go far in debt and don't pay the debt. It’s a sinful, wicked thing, not to repay what we have borrowed. Its’ destroying our free republic and giving us empire and bondage.
California is the most populous and wealthiest of our states and represents our love of money and things. Standing alone, California would be the world’s eighth largest economy - and it’s far in debt. On May 19, voters rejected tax increases to balance the budget. They expect their government to live within its means and not continue to spend and borrow more than they make in taxes. And California represents what is happening in most of our other states as well. Wicked people are borrowing and not paying their debts. They’re not paying their debts on credit cards, houses, cars, student loans etc., etc. And their debts are falling upon others to bail them out. The Devil is using the great snare of the love of money to destroy U.S. and make us lose our freedoms and have a dictator rule over U.S. We will all be slaves, no matter the color of our skins. Everyone has their hands out to Washington for a bailout and it will be very, very costly to us as far as our freedoms go. “The borrow is servant to the lender.” Soon our president will govern all our states and we’ll all be in bondage. O born again saint of God, free yourselves from the love of money and things -don’t follow the wicked, follow God’s Word. “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition” - (I Tim.6:6-9). Don’t drown in a sea of debt. Don’t follow this wicked, covetous world.
When we were a godly nation, God’s blessing was upon U.S. “...and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow” - (Du.28:12). But now we’re a wicked nation and God’s curse is upon U.S. - “He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: and he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail” - (Du.28:44). Our song needs to change from “God bless America” to “God curse America”. The curse of a wicked ruler will fall upon us. “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn” - (Prov.29:2). All our borrowing and no paying back, has just ‘borrowed trouble’ and ‘borrowed time’ and postponed the inevitable judgment of God upon us. Bondage is coming soon in place of freedom. In the Bible, the creditor took borrowers for bondmen who wouldn’t pay their debt.
Our national government borrows and borrows and doesn't repay the loans and is many trillions of dollars in debt. Our trade imbalance is staggering because we are so covetous and live so deliciously that we import more than we export and nations hold our unpaid markers. Our nation is living above its means and payday is coming soon: we don’t pay our bills and that makes us a thief. At His first coming, Christ died on the cross for our sins between two thieves and He’s coming back in stealth, secretly like a thief in the night.
It is written - “And forgive us our sins: for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us” - (Lk.11:4). Our sins are our debts to God, but by grace He forgives us our debt and sets us free from the bondage of sins. When we repent of our sins and believe in Christ in our heart by faith, God forgives us our debt and we receive forgiveness of our sin-debt by Christ on the cross and get saved. Christ paid the sin debt for U.S. O the marvelous grace of God. O do not spurn the love and grace of God in His beloved Son on the cross or the wrath of God abides upon you. You will have to pay your own sin debt to God in the prison of hell. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” - (Rom.6:23). Christ is our ‘surety’ - he is liable for our sin debt - (Heb.7:22). It cost Him His life. Sins are debts and our sins in America have put our nation in debt and repentance of sins is our remedy. Wicked borrowers who won’t pay their debts is a symbol of this sinful, wicked nation. We are guilty of breaking God’s laws and are debtors and the price is death and the second death in the lake of fire. Our sins are debts to God, which we, the debtors cannot pay. Only God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, can pay our debt of eternal death. Jesus paid a debt He didn’t owe - because we had a debt we couldn’t pay.
JESUS PAID IT ALL.
Gone is all my debt of sin,
A great change is wrought within,
And to live I begin.
Yet the debt I could not pay –
someone died for me one day,
sweeping all my sins away.
JESUS PAID IT ALL.
