MANASSEH / AMERICA PROOFS .DESCRIP TION PERFECT, FORGETFUL ?
The name Manasseh means , CAUSING TO FORGETT .
As a newborn country , even our leaders were already forgetting !
Benjamin Franklin , at the 1787 stalled meeting of the Continental Congress , requesting for prayer ,so as to move forward ,said , “ All of US who were engaged in the struggle(to be free of England) must have observed frequent instances of superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now FORGOTTEN that powerful friend ? Or do we imagine that we no longer need his assistance ?
Patrick Henry Said , ” It is when people FORGET Almighty God that tyrants forge their chains “ . See we have forgotten Almighty God and now we have Obama ,
who rules like a tyrant , by Executive Order and Presidential Memorandum to get his way regardless of congress or the Constitution .
Abraham Lincoln said ,” We have FORGOTTEN Almighty God. We have FORGOTTEN the gracious hand which preserved US in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened US, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the Almighty God that made US ” .
This was from Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Thanksgiving Proclamation .
This mindset epitomized the early pioneers spirit of FORGETTING what was behind and looking to the future and what lies ahead, as they pushed west .
Abraham Lincoln said in his appeal for a National Day of Prayer and repentance , to heal the nation from the sin of slavery and the scars of Civil War, said ;
“ WE HAVE FORGOTTEN ALMIGHTY GOD “ , AND “ FORGOTTEN GODS GRACIOUS HAND OF PROVIDENCE “ even though, “ WE HAVE BEEN THE RECIPIENTS OF THE CHOICIEST BLESSING OF HEAVEN “ !
NOW THAT’S FORGETFULL !
That was nearly 300 years ago and with each passing year we have grown, – more and more and more FORGETTFULL !
This point was driven home on the 9-11 attacks.
First ,It would not have happened if we had not FORGOTTEN ALMIGHTY GOD !
Second ,Everyone was going around saying, God bless America, God bless America . There were all types of signs that said “ God bless America “ , there was even bumper stickers that said , “ 9-11 we will not FORGET , God bless America “ . Those stickers were TOTALLY DELUSIONAL .
THAT’S ALL WE DO …….. IS FORGET !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The thing is , we had FORGOTTEN that Almighty God had ALREADY , blessed US with the “choicest blessings of heaven” , and the real problem is, we totally missed the wakeup call that was telling US that this happened , BECAUSE ,
we had FORGOTTEN that Almighty God HAD BLESSED US ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Also ,one could say , Our FORGETTFULLNES gives US the short attention span that we Americans are known for , whether it be where all our blessings came from , that the leaders of Iran have said their destiny is to bring about the apocalypse , yet we agree for them to have a nuclear program , to how we channel surf and everything in between .
We certainly live up to our name ………Manasseh – FORGETTFULL !
When Almighty God says it , it is !
WE have been FORGETTING SINCE WE WERE BORN , through our early years , of slavery & cival war , our middle age years , when we took Almighty God out our schools ,to our mature years , when we missed our warning wake up call , of 9-11 , forgetting how we were already blessed and by whom !
Forgetting , It is our name and it’s what we do !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
