Madonna: I'm Ashamed to Be an American

Known for her perverse and even Satanic performances, 58-year-old Madonna this weekend denounced the nation that made her an international superstar.

During a fundraiser for the African nation of Malawi at Art Basel, the nation in which her 11-year-old adopted son David was born, Madonna went ballistic on America and its president-elect. Specifically, she announced she's ashamed of how our government has treated Native Americans.

"It just really makes me feel ashamed, ashamed to be an American, ashamed to be a human being, really," the Associated Press reported her as saying.

Madonna is also ashamed of Donald Trump. She displayed photos of the billionaire businessman-turned-politician on the big screen at her concert while singing a rendition of Britney Spears' 2003 hit song "Toxic." The not-so-subliminal message: Trump is toxic.

I agree that what the American government did—breaking every covenant we inked with the Native Americans—is absolutely shameful. I agree that many of Trump's actions have been tremendously toxic. 

Thankfully, God knows how to cleanse us from shame and toxins. We can't move forward while looking back. And Native American peoples seem to understand this better than most.

Indeed, some prophetic voices believe the nation shifted spiritually Oct. 21, 2016, on what may go down as one of the most important days in American history, a Charisma News article reported. On that day, a full-blooded Euchee Indian, Negiel Bigpond, coordinated the first-ever national prayer gathering of Native Americans in the nations's capitol. Charisma News reported:

"Bigpond, who has evangelized on 143 reservations, believes the U.S. has suffered spiritual consequences for breaking treaties with Native Americans. In Scripture, breaking a vow or treaty brings a curse on the land, and the U.S. government broke every treaty it made with the Native American tribes, according to prophetic voice Rick Joyner, who called the prayer event one of the most important in the nation's history from his ministry headquarters in North and South Carolina."

Rick Joyner, among others, saw the prophetic significance of the event:

"This is one of the most noble acts of true Christian charity I have ever heard of by any people group," he said. "Very few may even know that anything special happened. Some of the greatest things happen that way, and only a very few, who have their eyes open looking in the right direction, see them."

We need to get our eyes off the past and even off of Donald Trump and onto God. We need to receive forgiveness, let go of our shame and claim Psalm 121:

I will lift up my eyes to the hills, from where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who guards Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your guardian; the Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not harm you during the day, nor the moon during the night. The Lord shall protect you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in from now and for evermore.

The Lord told me the angels of abundant harvest have been released into the nation. Read more at angelsprophecy.com.
