America is Bewitched By The Spirits of Cain, Balaam and Korah!

A juju house where they bewitch people.
This lesson is taken from Jude 1:11. It reads, “Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.” I will tell you what it is, and how it is manifesting itself. When someone is bewitched, they act according to the spirit of the spell. It cannot be refuted that the people are bewitched with the way this country is going; they are certainly under a spell. In Genesis 4: 1-17, we are told that Adam and Eve initially had two children: Cain and Abel. Cain killed Abel because he was jealous his brother had found favor with God. Balaam was hired by Balak-a godless king to curse the children of Israel (Numbers 22-23). He did not succeed, so he decided to lead them astray in what will later be known as Balaam Doctrine (Num 31: 16). In Numbers 16:1-4, Korah and his men led a rebellion out of jealousy against the God appointed leaders, Moses and Aaron. They told Moses that God did not only speak to them; he spoke to them too!
Oh, boy, don’t we hear the same thing today with many people claiming that there are many ways to God? Rebellion against anything godly. Cain is a symbol of Familyquake or family breakdown. He is envious and rancorous. John is the one who introduces the symbolism in 1 Jn 3:12. Balaam is a symbol of idolatry and fornication. In other words, materialism and carpe diem.  Korah is a symbol of rebellion. These are the three spirits that bewitch America today and now as I write. 
Cain was the first great criminal and first murderer we see. He started with fratricide, and now the world is faced with the rise of filicide, prolicide and uxoricide. For the last 32 years, at least 500 children are killed by their parents in the US each year.[1]  The families are more dysfunctional than before. ¾ of families are broken up with step this and step that. Marriages kaput even after 25 years anniversary. Many kids have no relationship with their parents. No wonder parricide rates are skyrocketing. Children abandon their parents in nursing homes. We live in a time of unparalleled family dysfunction!
The error of Balaam was insatiable greedy desire for wealth. The conclusion is going astray just to gain rewards. They lose their morals for worldly gain and mundane pleasure. They desire the wages of unrighteousness 2 Pet 2:15.  John explains in Rev 2:14 what Balaam’s sin was: idolatry and fornication. That is why even two years old can boast that, “my mommy is a slut!”
A good son is advertising the slut qualities of the mom.

 In 2013, US News and World Report wrote that, “More Than 110 Million Americans Have an STD.”[2] On November 4 2014, Huffington Post reported that Americans should fear STDs more than Ebola.[3] The sexual revolution has led to wanton birth defects. STDs cause birth defects like blindness because when the child is being born, he or she picks it up from the mother and their eyes are scared for life. Some of them develop mental and neurological problems. In countries like the US, after birth, the child’s eyes are treated with an antibiotic ointment to prevent them picking up the disease. However, they are not protected from other birth defects like deafness, bone deformities or intellectual disabilities.[4]  
People are running counter to God’s will for their personal gains. Licentiousness has taken hold of the human race. Women showcase themselves as sexual objects

It seems everyone is now reciting, “Let us eat and drink (and have sex) for tomorrow we die.” They ran greedily means to pour out. If you do not understand when a people pours out, you picture Black Friday Sales day. It is synonymous to the Rat Race. Parents are so given to the Rat Race that they barely even see their own kids. The kids themselves have been kidnapped by social media. The spirit of Balaam is alive and well, my friends!
The spirit of Korah is the spirit of rebellion against godly authority. It happened in Numbers 16:1.8//7 Many are revolting against God and ministers of God, children are revolting against their parents, and citizens are rebelling against their leaders. On March 23, 2015, The Daily Beast reported that, “It’s estimated that at least 400 U.S. doctors kill themselves every year. Many are struggling with depression, anxiety, or addiction.”[5] If the doctors could be killing themselves at this rate, what should the patients do? If iron can rust, how much more steel, my people? They have made the society too artificial that if you see some of these people at work and you try to strike a relationship with them, their minds always linger to the wrong motive. Many people are on drugs, but they do not create reliable and meaningful friendships that could redeem them.
Due to the spirit of Balaam, we have reached an age when all restraints are removed. Do not expect to see idolatry in America as people worshipping a molten calf or a man and his family bowing down before other man made gods. Idolatry is now in the form of worshiping human beings- the stars and their achievements. Don’t you watch the Emmys, the Oscars and the Vanity Fairs? See how they glorify the stars and take their words much more than those of God. Don’t you see the rate at which the country is given to materialism? Everyone is now their Svengali or so they think. Everything is now about us. They even ask the question like Pharaoh, “Who is the LORD that I should obey His voice…? I know not the LORD… (Ex5:2)." It would seem their only mantra is now the words of Albert Camus, “Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.” They neither lead nor do they want to be led.
Erich Fromm once said, “Just as primitive man was helpless before natural forces, modern man is helpless before the social and economic forces created by himself.” Humans now speak as if they were God! Some still believe the old lie of the devil, “You will be like God.” Some have even made God an ant they could trample upon. Their libertinism has led them to gluttony and debauchery. The end results are obesity, drug addiction and every unhealthy situation one can imagine on earth. The more new laws are created, the more loopholes are proliferated. Schadenfreude is like a child everyone is pregnant with. Men of God are even crowned kings in their churches.[6] 
Oh, America, where art thy soul? What hope are you leaving for your kids?

Until then, America needs a cleansing!
