Included in the list of curses promised by God for His people if they disobeyed His voice and did not carefully observe His commandments and statues is this from Deuteronomy chapter 28:
"28 The Lord will strike you with madness and blindness and confusion of heart. 29 And you shall grope at noonday, as a blind man gropes in darkness; you shall not prosper in your ways; you shall be only oppressed and plundered continually, and no one shall save you."
We surely live under this sentence today. Our president, his administration, and our legislators have printed more than 1 trillion dollars since Obama took office, and have increased our debt exponentially and still there is no attempt at curbing spending, stopping currency printing, or doing anything different at all. So how is this madness you ask? Let's say each of us owed $45,000 in debt, which currently per capita in the U.S. we DO. So we all said that the way we would pay off that debt was to go out and spend lots more money and print some to boot. In real life, we would be put into jail! Yet this is EXACTLY what is going on in Washington. Every day we are groping around in darkness, not prospering and becoming more and more plundered and oppressed. What is the solution to this madness? God said He would visit this curse for not obeying Him or following His commands. Let's seek repentance, stop plundering our own neighbors through government programs, and demand that we have a balanced budget and return to God whole heartedly. Politicians cannot fix what God has decreed. But His people, called by His name can seek His face and repent and be restored to sanity.
