Romans 1 – “The wrath of Yahweh is poured out upon all who refuse to honor or give thanks to Him. Those who refuse are handed over to lust, perversion, sickness, arrogance, and a depraved mind.”
The Slippery Slope
The slippery slope begins with a slide that starts slowly and gains momentum the further down the slope a person, group, or nation travels. It always starts with a rejection of Yahweh and His Word. The rejection may start with refusal to adhere to the gender roles He has established, or with rejection of the history He has given in the Bible, or with a refusal to listen to His counsel. Often, the three go hand in hand. Once the slide begins it generally ends up with total rejection of Yahweh and His Word, leading to His handing the rejecting person, group, or nation over to rampant depraved thinking. This pattern can be seen in the apostate church, and is overtaking the United States.
The United States
The United States of America has been sliding down a slippery slope for many years. At first, the slope was gentle, and its people did not realize that their nation was slipping but today the evidence is overwhelming that it is, indeed, slipping at an alarming rate.
Genesis 3:16 – “To the woman Yahweh said, ‘. . .Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you’.”
1 Timothy 2:12-14 – “Do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man . . .
The first step over the summit onto the slippery slope began when the people of the United States allowed women to usurp the authority of men by giving women the right to vote. Early victories were won in the territories of Wyoming and Utah, followed by Idaho and Colorado. The key vote to allow women the right to vote came when the Senate approved the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution on June 4, 1919, and was finalized when it was signed into law by Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby on August 26, 1920. Allowing women to usurp the authority of men is a direct rejection of the gender roles set forth by Yahweh.
Romans 1:22-23 – We gave ourselves over to worshiping mother earth and the evolutionary process, rather than worshiping Yahweh who created all things, and seeking His wisdom.
Following closely upon the heels of the Nineteenth Amendment the debate over evolution began. On July 10, 1925 the Scopes Trial began. John Scopes, a high school teacher, was accused of teaching evolution in a state funded school, a violation of Tennessee’s Butler Act. As the 1960’s rolled in, many states had become much more willing to accept the teaching of evolution in public schools, and today it is taught as fact, not theory. Rejecting the scriptures that declare Yahweh created the heavens, the earth, and all that is in it, is denigration and mockery of Yahweh himself.
Romans 1:24-28 – “We gave ourselves over to the lusts of our hearts, embracing sexual perversion.”
Not only did the 1960’s bring in more acceptance of evolution, it also rejected Yahweh as creator, prayer in school, and proclaimed the sexual revolution. 1963 saw the Bible removed from schools, although it was the primary teaching source when the United States was founded, and in 1964 prayer was removed from public schools. By 1970 open acceptance of sex outside of marriage was common. “If you can’t be with the one you love, then love the one you’re with!” and “Make love, not war!” became mottos of the day. In 1973 the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from its list of disorders, and in 1975 the American Psychological Association essentially did the same. Today, the people of the US openly accept homosexuality, bestiality, and same-sex marriage as simply alternative lifestyles. Both women and men today are taught to sleep around indiscriminately. Both are taught that any sexual desire is okay and that sex only occurs with penile penetration of the vagina. Everything else is just “play and okay”. Pope Benedict XVI has even stated that child porn and pedophilia were becoming increasingly “normal.” Is it any wonder why so many are receiving the penalty for such sins in their bodies with the increase in Sexually Transmitted Diseases, just as Yahweh describes?
Leviticus 20:13 – “If a man lays with another man he should be stoned.”
Is it any wonder that states are passing both same-sex marriage laws and marijuana use laws at the same time, legalizing both? Some claim that previously we were just interpreting the above passage wrongly, but now we have it right! Again, talk about depraved thinking!
Romans 1:28-32 – “We gave ourselves over to depraved thinking”
Not only did the people of the United States embrace sexual perversions, they also gave themselves over to envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice, and alcohol and drug abuse. Worse, not only have we given ourselves over to these things, we approve and promote these things as being normal behaviors. Once upon a time abortion was unheard of. Transparency of the leaders and media was commonplace but today these entities instead feed the people an unending stream of lies. Bi-partisanship was the norm, but today the two major political parties can not even agree on a budget. Drug use in this nation was generally limited to illicit drugs like cocaine, marijuana, and cocaine, but today has gravitated towards the rampant abuse of prescription painkillers and other drugs, and worse yet, designer drugs. The Word of Yahweh is undeniably correct in stating that our thinking has become depraved.
1Samuel 10:19 – We have rejected Yahweh and have instead said, “Set a king over us! Give us a new messiah!
The United States has been hit with a disaster after disaster after disaster of “Biblical Proportions” and every time its leaders have vowed to rebuild better and stronger. How proud the leaders have become, how un-needful of Yahweh’s assistance. The people of the United States are becoming haters of Yahweh, Yeshua, and the Ruach HaKodesh. The people of the United States have elected a “king” who is frequently hailed as the “new messiah” if numerous blogs, YouTube videos, and books can be believed. Yahweh is no longer their king.
Hosea 4:2 – Violence is everywhere— one murder after another, bloodshed upon bloodshed.
The recent killings at the Clackamas Mall in Oregon, and the horrific killings of 20 children in Sandy Hook Connecticut show very clearly that we have abandoned Yahweh and have lost His protection. There have now been eighteen mass murders in the United States as of this date and but the violent crime rate is twice what it was in 1960. Mike Huckabee states: “We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools. Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?” Joel Rosenberg puts it this way: “The answer is as painful as it is simple: the further we turn away from God in our nation — the further we drive Him out of our society, our of our schools and courts, and out of our media and out of our homes, or the more we give mere lip service to religion — the worse things are getting”. Donna Wasson says: “The human heart has grown more crippled and perverted, and very little compassion or courtesy exists on this earth anymore.” The heart of man has turned away from Yahweh and towards a human king, whom they expect will be able to meet their every need, including safety.
It is becoming more and more apparent that the killing of babies in the womb, or abortion, is now leading to the killing of children outside the womb. The United States has “legally” killed over 50 million babies in the womb, and the toll of killed children outside the womb continues to climb as well. In 1997 Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold murdered a total of 12 students and one teacher. James Holmes killed 12 people, one of whom was a child. And Adam Lanza has now killed 20 children and 6 teachers or school administrators. Truly one murder after another has been a result of the rejection of Yahweh and His Word.
Isaiah 5:20-24 – We now call good evil, and evil good, we reject Yahweh’s laws, and we despise His word.
The United States is being turned upside down. Women are no longer women – they have been convinced to pursue an education and career at all costs, and to never depend on a man. Men are no longer Men — they are taught to be submissive and to believe that “If mama ain’t happy, nobody will be happy!” Whatever happened to “If papa ain’t happy, mama ain’t gonna be happy!”. Sexual perversions are simply alternative lifestyles. Illicit drug use is simply personal entertainment. Murder is simply called reproductive choice. Adultery is simply having fun with the one you are with, no commitment needed. Marriage is no longer between a man and a woman. Good and evil are no longer defined by the Word of Yahweh, but by whatever definition the majority of the voters decide is acceptable.

Romans 2:2 – Therefore, the judgment of God is rightly falling upon our nation and those who practice such things.
The United States of America has been sliding down a slippery slope for many years and is now slipping at an alarming rate. It has rejected Yahweh’s gender roles, His creation account, and His Word. It has rejected sexual purity and sane thinking. Romans 1 and 2, as well as other scriptures, are quite clear; any nation that rejects Yahweh and His statutes will be handed over. How many more of Yahweh’s statutes will the people of the United States reject? It is becoming quite apparent that both the people and the nation of the United States have been handed over to judgment in the form of lustful, perverted desires, sickness, arrogance, and a depraved mind. How many more warnings will they ignore before the United States is destroyed?
Prophecy continues to unfold as foretold by the Hebrew prophets. The stage is being set. That being said, one can only ask: “How imminent is the return of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach?”
