From the Prophetic abyss, the people of God must arise
This is a time of great crisis. We have never in the history of the United States been in such a one like this at a time such as this. Just to illustrate--CNSNews.com has made the startling documentation that in the first 19 months of this Administration, the federal debt held by the public increased to $8.83 trillion, some $2.5 trillion more than the cumulative total of the national debt held by the public amassed by all US presidents from George Washington through Ronald Reagan. Yet the man who occupies the Oval Office was in Cleveland, Ohio Wednesday campaigning against Republicans, who he says are responsible for this morass. Can anyone say Nero?
There has to be a moment of reality here. It would appear that our worst enemy could not have done a better job destroying the economic free market fiber of this country than the current US president. Its as if he set out on purpose to do it. And in a way, the answer is obvious. His campaign promises were for "change" and to "remake America" both terms of socialism and economic collectivism in a traditional statist vocabulary. But the American people were certainly thinking another type of change and now the reality of change is setting in. At this level of debt, America's economy and culture is headed toward the biggest downturn ever experienced by this generation.
There is no way, aside from a miraculous turnaround in political policy and the abolition of quickly institutionalized socialist programs that this nation will know any form of future prosperity. Socialism does not give a hand up, but rather pulls people down. Day in and day out, I receive emails from people wanting to know what to do. We must have Revivalution--revival that spawns revolution--true just action compelled by the commandments of God. It is not burning Korans. It is not self indulgent personal prophecy. Its not waiting for the rapture. It is not doctrines that rearrange the word of God into man's desires of it. It is true adherence to the word of God, God's commandments in action, changing a heart at a time.
What can you do? What must you do? First, you must know the word of God. If you don't know it, read it. If your pastor is not preaching it, demand that he does or find another church. Then you must have an Ephesians 6:18-20 moment: "Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak." This nation is on the precipice of drastic failure. Only God by acting through his people can save it. Will you do as God commands?
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
