“The Archilles Heel” (A Word for America 4.6.2024)

“The Achilles Heel”

(A Word for America 4.6.2024)

“One who loves transgression loves strife; One who makes his doorway high seeks destruction” (Proverbs 17:19).


In Greek Mythology there was a warrior called Achilles whom was described as the bravest and handsomest and greatest warrior of the army of Agamemnon in the Trojan War. It was also said of him that when he was still a child he was dipped in the River Styx by which he became invulnerable except for the part of his heel by which he was held by the woman who was dipping him in the river. After many conquests and victories he seemed invincible and unstoppable and his prowess in battle was widely known among the Greeks and the Trojans. However, he was slain in battle by Paris whose arrow hit Achilles in the heel that had not been dipped in the river and consequently brought him down to his doom.

He who loves Transgression

In the Book of Proverbs we read; “One who loves transgression loves strife; One who makes his doorway high seeks destruction” (Proverbs 17:19). Here the word “transgression” has the idea of “rebellion against individuals, against a nation and against God.”  One who loves transgression loves strife in that transgression always brings about strife for the one who continues in his transgression, and for those who are recipients of that strife. This proverb can apply to a man who promotes himself to become a king or a leader or a ruler or President of a nation. He aims high to exult himself and his ungodly policies, but in reality he seeks destruction whether he realises it or not. Not only will such a man bring destruction on himself but upon those over whom he rules and who have elected him to office.

Make America Great Again?

There was a time when America was the most powerful global super power in the world that at one time eclipsed even China and Russia in military prowess both at sea and on land and was touted to be the global police force of the world, especially where you had evil despotic dictators. In the late 1930’S President Roosevelt was aware of what was starting to happen to the Jews in Germany and spreading into Nazi occupied Europe, but he refused to allow fleeing Jews to have asylum in America, hence, Pearl harbour occurred where virtually the entire American fleet was almost destroyed, and the terrible atrocities the Jews were experiencing in Europe hit America hard with the stark reality of a global war and in WW2 it is estimated that 418,500 Americans lost their lives and undoubtedly devastating their families.  One asks the question; “What was the greater tragedy? Was it the loss of 418,500 Americans or the systematic extermination of 6 million Jews in the Holocaust?”

Today we see anti-Semitism raising its diabolical head once again, and what is happening to the Jews in Israel today is going to come upon the nations that do not support Israel at the hands of Islamic terror. It does not pay to mess with Israel! Can anyone really make America great again including former President Donald Trump should he be elected in November later this year?

The “Achilles Heel”

Today America as a nation in on a moral, spiritual, political and military slippery dip and a sinking titanic that has already hit the Iceberg of destruction with an “Achilles heel” sitting at the steering wheel in “the Ship” of the White House. Now you have an elected American President who it would seem is becoming rather senile and making bad decisions, enforcing ungodly policies in Congress that inhibit free speech, policies that go contrary to the law of God, sanctioning such wickedness as non-therapeutic abortion, which he celebrates along with other leading politicians in the White House. He is pushing the Transgender Agenda big time and condones and supports same-sex marriage, promoting the LGBT movement and incarcerating those who stand for saving the lives of innocent babies from non-therapeutic abortions, unborn babies that cannot speak for themselves in the womb of their mothers.

Joe Biden Gave Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz a Record $699 Million in Taxpayer funding this year and added to this, Planned Parenthood is Pushing Transgender Hormones on children without parental consent.

Crossing the Line drawn in the sand

Does God not see this? He most certainly does! He puts up with many things from fallen humanity in that He is not willing that anyone should perish in their sins but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). However, when it comes to sacrificing innocent unborn babies in the wombs of their mothers it crosses the line that God has drawn and brings God’s judgement upon those who condone and promote such demonic nontherapeutic practices!

The Altars of Moloch

Since Roe v. Wade in 1973, there have been 65,464,760 babies that have Been Killed in Abortions. God sees this as the same as “scarifying babies to the ancient Canaanite ‘demonic god’ Moloch.” Living children were cast into the fire being kindled in the lap of the idol. This same thing is happening today on the altars of abortion clinics. God severely judged those in times past who participated in these demonic sacrifices to demons which idolatry is according to the Word of God.  (Deuteronomy 32:16-17) (Psalm 106:36-37) (1 Corinthians 10:20). Will He not punish those who for convenience sake participate in non-therapeutic abortions? He will! It also needs to be said that even if a woman has had a non-therapeutic abortion, but in sorrow of heart that leads to repentance she comes before God and to a saving faith in and knowledge of the Lord Jesus to pardon her, she will be forgiven and cleansed from her sin, because the blood of the Lord Jesus cleanses from all sin when it is confessed for what it is (1 John 1:7-9) and who among us has not sinned? The only one without sin was the Messiah our Lord Jesus.

As it is written in God’s Word; “Mercy triumphs over judgement!” (James 2:13). We see this mercy being extended by those who are working hard in the pro-life movements across America, which for the most part are marginalised and resisted by many in Congress, but not all in Congress of course. Now Such a President today in the White House whose policies promotes and endorses such atrocities as the murder of innocents in their mother’s wombs is in himself “the Achilles Heel” that will bring about the downfall of America as a global power.

God Bless America?

These words have rolled so easily off of the tongue one time or another of virtually every President that has been in Office, especially those who at election time who are not saved covet the votes of Christendom. Is God blessing America today? The lyrics to America’s national Anthem ends with these words; “Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation! Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”: And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

According to a report by the ACLJ (American Centre for Law and Justice) that support evangelistic ministry in the US, the attacks on religious liberty by anti-Christian forces continues unabated within the American government that is targeting Christians and spying on churches and shutting down Bible studies in public places. So then you have an elected American President who is working against the Body of Messiah in the United States and also publically claiming to support Israel out of one side of his mouth while supporting policies that diametrically opposes Israel’s security out of the other side of his mouth.

Jew Hatred Perpetrated

In reality Biden, backed by Obama the puppet master behind the scenes who more than likely is pulling the strings of Biden the puppet, is seeking to establish a situation in Israel that would supposedly solve the problem in Gaza but in reality leave Hamas intact to repeat more October 7 diabolical massacres of Israelis which they are openly saying they will continue to do. Biden if he can enforce it, wants a permanent cease-fire in Gaza and the PA to rule in Gaza which would be like allowing a ravenous wolf into the chicken house. Such a move would place every Jewish citizen living in Israel in jeopardy.

So then Biden’s latest ‘plan’ for a permanent cease-fire and for the establishment of a supposed Palestinian State clearly puts Israel in the crosshairs of Hamas and the Islamic Arab agitators living side by side with Israelis in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), who, by and large, support Hamas and hate the Jews among whom they live. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu knows full well that Hamas must be completely eliminated including its leaders. As for the nations pushing for their two-state solution from Hell and their pacification policies are in for a shocking surprise, when, what is happening in Israel at the hands of Jihad minded killers, will come to their own shores.

Reversing Political Policies

Whatever your personal views are about Donald Trump when he was in the White House, he clearly supported Israel as we all know. He also started to build a high fence across the border between the United States with Mexico to stop illegal immigration, drug runners and no doubt terrorists from illegally entering the United States. Now Biden has undone all of that leaving a further “Achilles heel” with a back door now open between the United States with Mexico allowing multitudes of un-checked illegal immigrants to flood American cities and no doubt Islamic terrorists among them.

If Donald Trump was still in the White House then the fence would have remained, Russia would never have attacked Ukraine, and China would not be moving their armed forces to surround Taiwan, neither would North Korea be upping the ante on their nuclear capabilities. China is now “waiting in the wings” concerning a move against Taiwan, until Xi Jinping sees the results of the American presidential election in November this year.

An unconfirmed report has stated that China is now developing an Ebola virus to use as a bio-weapon possibly with America in view? It is a virus that apparently has a 99% death rate? Time will tell if this is true. If this is the case possibly they are developing this in the Wuhan Chemistry Lab in their Bio-Technology facility in that province of China. In Venezuela you have a nation that is Anti-American with its own missiles in place courtesy of Iran. Russia has at least seven research facilities in Antarctica and who knows if they also have missile silos there as well with missiles pointing towards America?

The Cuban Missile Crisis

History does have a way of repeating itself. Most American’s who lived in the 60’s would remember the Cuban Missile Crisis also known as the October Crisis in Cuba, or the Caribbean Crisis, which was a 13-day confrontation between the governments of the United States and the Soviet Union, when American deployments of nuclear missiles in Italy and Turkey were matched by Soviet deployments of nuclear missiles in Cuba. The crisis lasted from 16 to 28 October 1962. At that time President JFK was prepared to retaliate with American missiles if attacked and the situation bordered on a nuclear exchange between the two super powers at that time. Russia today is expanding its economic and trade ties with Cuba.

A Laughing Stock!

Today you have an American President who is the “Achilles Heel” for America, that once by and large a mighty Judeo-Christian nation and global power that has now become the laughing stock of the whole Islamic and Communist world. One of the redeeming factors in why America has not been attacked on its home soil by its implacable enemies Russia and China or by Islamic terrorists, except of course in the 9/11 destruction of the Twin Towers in New York by Islamic terrorists, is because the American Body of Messiah is supporting missionary work globally and there are multitudes of American New Covenant Bible believers who are regularly praying that God would spiritually revive the nation which has a past rich Biblical Judeo-Christian heritage.

‘Babylon’ Rising

Today America, by enlarge, in its culture, its government policies and its hedonistic living in society is now for the most part a Post-Christian neo-pagan society. You have a government that wants to see prayer taken out of schools and educational institutions. You now have lawsuits being issued against those who hold to Biblical principles and preach the gospel and who are pro-life advocates, not to mention the culture, the pursuits, the pleasures and the opulence of ancient Babylon and the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah infesting the advertising Bill boards, the internet, the movies and places of entertainment such as rock concerts and night clubbing. Also you have a myriad of false prophets and teachers on Television networks and over the internet plying their wares and fleecing God’s undiscerning sheep of their hard-earned dollars while promoting all kinds of counterfeit miracles sign and wonders!

‘Hell’ on Home Soil

If Biden continues down the path of his so called ‘policies’ for the ‘Palestinian cause’ at the expense of Israel’s security then it may well come in our day when missiles will hit American cities, or Islamic terrorist cell-groups will commence acts of sabotage within the city streets across America. While there are multitudes of Christian assemblies across the United States today praying for a spiritual revival in America, the time is coming when there will no longer be enough intercessors in the Body of Messiah to hold back the judgement of God upon the nation that was once the Bastian of freedom of speech, life and liberty and Biblical truth. If America is attacked on its home soil from rogue nations with missiles, and there are enemies from within the nation itself rising up to cause murder and mayhem across America, then the US government would more than likely withdraw its forces from other nations where they had been stationed to bring them home to defend Americans on their home soil. Possibly this would then isolate America and leave the way open for China, Russia, North Korea and the whole Islamic world to systematically destroy western Christendom and western democracy as we know it today. Hell then, would have come home to America!

God has the Final Say

Of course in all of these matters, if things go this way, we must keep in focus that God is still in control, even if things do not look like it because He knows the past and the future and works out everything for His own ends even holding the wicked for the day of Judgement. He Himself has said through Isaiah the prophet; “Remember what happened long ago, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me. I declare the end from the beginning, and ancient times from what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and all My good pleasure I will accomplish.’ I summon a bird of prey from the east, a man for My purpose from a far-off land. Truly I have spoken, and truly I will bring it to pass. I have planned it, and I will surely do it” (Isaiah 46:9-11). As the apostle Peter writes; “if all this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment” (2 Peter 2:9).

The Time of the Big Trouble

As New Covenant Bible believers in the Body of Messiah we know that these things, not only in America, but in the now decadent western democracies traditionally associated with Biblical Judeo-Christianity must occur before the Messiah our Lord Jesus comes back. The whole world is heading for a crisis of global proportions which will only be resolved by the return of the Lord Jesus. We are as yet to pass through a time of tribulation, testing, trial and persecution of faithful believers unlike anything that has occurred in previous history or will occur in the future, and that for the sake of God’s elect people who belong to the Lord Jesus, those days will be cut short, otherwise no flesh would be saved (Matthew 24:9-14, 21-22). Immediately after this time the faithful Body of Messiah will be removed (Matthew 24:29-31). We see believers actually coming out of (continuous tense) Great Tribulation between the sixth and the seventh seal (Revelation 7:14). When the Body of Messiah is taken up the wrath of God will come down. We who belong to the Lord Jesus are justified and saved by His redeeming blood and will be saved from the wrath of God to come (Romans 5:9). As those who belong to the Lord Jesus, like Him, we are destined for tribulation in this world, but not for the wrath of God. (1 Thessalonians 3:3) (John 15:18-21) (1 Thessalonians 1:10; 5:9).

God still has everything under control

We know that God still has everything under control, and He does you know including the political leaders of the nations. As we read; “The nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are considered a speck of dust on the scales; He lifts up the islands like fine dust” (Isaiah 40:15).

And again we read; “Lowborn men are but a vapour, the exalted but a lie. Weighed on the scale, they go up; together they are but a vapour” (Psalm 62:9). And yet again we read; “The nations rage like the rush of many waters. He rebukes them, and they flee far away, driven before the wind like chaff on the hills, like tumbleweeds before a gale” (Isaiah 17:13).

And again it is written; “But the LORD is the true God; He is the living God and eternal King. The earth quakes at His wrath and the nations cannot endure His indignation” (Jeremiah 10:10). And yet again we read; “All the peoples of the earth are counted as nothing, and He does as He pleases with the army of heaven and the peoples of the earth. There is no one who can restrain His hand or say to Him, ‘What have You done?'”(Daniel 4:35).

He raises up kings and puts them down

In His infinite wisdom and supreme almighty power and foreknowledge of all things He changes times and seasons according to His will and raises up kings and puts them down as He wills (Daniel 2:20-21). It may well be that Biden and his ilk are all on borrowed time and that day is rapidly approaching when all hell will break lose against them and all who are unrepentant rebels in God’s face. We are told by the Lord Jesus in the gospel of Luke what the conditions will be like on earth just before the Messiah our Lord Jesus comes back.

“There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves (nations in turmoil), men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near” (Luke 21:25-28).

When we see these things occurring we are not to bend over at the knees in fear even though things will be daunting and difficult, but to straighten up and to stand tall and to lift our eyes heavenward in expectation of our rescue because our redemption out of this world is drawing near. Our sure and certain blessed hope as redeemed saints of God is the glorious appearing and Second Coming of our Lord Jesus, who, when He returns immediately after the tribulation of those days, will rescue the remnant of Israel and gather all of His elect saints to meet Him in the air at His coming again (Matthew 24:29-31) (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18). Let’s keep looking up and by faith keep on keeping on serving in the will of God in this generation knowing full well the reward to come in the next age after this one has ended!


Achilles may have been a mighty warrior of renown and fame among the nations however, he had a vulnerable part unprotected in his heel, and it was this vulnerable spot that brought his down fall when he was mortally wounded by the arrow of Paris. It has been said by a well-known Jewish evangelist and Bible teacher that “people get the leaders they deserve!” In November this year the American people will stand at the crossroads that will determine the future path America will take when they go to the voting polls. While God has the future in his hands He still allows for freedom of choice even though He already knows what will happen and has planned accordingly.

If an American President is elected that will support Israel and seek God’s wisdom to govern the people of this great nation then the LORD will postpone His judgement on America that was founded on a Biblical Judeo-Christian heritage. Even though there were Freemasons among those who founded America, there were also many godly men and women also among them who brought Biblical values and God’s law and the salvation that is only in the Lord Jesus, to the Indian people of that great continent which would become a beacon light for the spreading of the gospel of the kingdom globally, and for guaranteeing freedom and justice for all in the ratification of the American Constitution.

May the LORD have mercy upon America and withhold His judgement which in the future will be inevitable as it will be for all nations, for He still has many who as yet are not saved  in America but will be saved and multitudes who are saved and serve Him exclusively in American cities, who are faithful servants of the Lord Jesus and for spreading the gospel of the kingdom! The forthcoming American elections may well see a President who supports Israel and Biblical Christianity and seeks to deal with what Joe Biden has done to bring America down. Even if Donald Trump is elected he cannot make America great again. as only our Triune God has the divine right, the supreme power and determined prerogative to make of America what He has already ordained it to be in His foreknowledge because He inhabits eternity!
