Of God's Hand and Ear; Of a Nation Separated from Righteousness
America is in a heap of trouble and she will not survive unless Christian Americans begin asserting themselves aggressively into society with the gospel of Christ. If there were ever a time in our nation's history where the balance of evil is tipping the scales in its favor, it is now, today, this time. The very foundation of this nation--the rule of law, the rights endowed every human by God as outlined by the Founding Fathers, the liberty to even be a Christian, the freedom to speak your opinion, the ability to act with free will as a Christian--is being torn apart as Christians stand by debating differences on issues God has already determined--homosexuality, life of the pre-born, the only path to heaven, and more.
Did you know: the deficit has grown four hundred percent since April 2009; that the president has nominated a homosexual socialist to the Supreme Court; that America, not Israel, is negotiating with terrorists over Israel's future; the federal government is trying to take over control of the food supply; you will be forced to buy government run health care and your care will be rationed by the government; your tax money supports the abortion industry; the current nominee for the Supreme Court seeks to "redistribute" religious free speech, especially in referencing God's position on homosexuality; the government has incurred over $40,000 in debt for every man, woman and child in America?
Isaiah 59 describes the condition of America. Verses 1-4: "Behold the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity." Verse 7: "Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths."
As a Christian, you may take offense and say, "I have done all I can do and most assuredly, I do not support these things." And this may be true from the innermost of your heart. However, all of us are guilty. Our money supports these terrible things. Oh, then you say, "Render unto Caesar..." But in THIS nation, we the people are responsible for our government. Also, our inaction supports these things against God and this country. Prayer only does not satisfy action. Writing letters does not satisfy action. Moving hearts to the truth of Christ is real action. Our only hope for this nation is to change hearts with the light of Christ. We must restore the Truth, that righteousness may enter.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
