The Prophetic Turning Point is on your hands
One of the things that has always made me proud to be an American is that we seem to have stood for what is good and right. We have been a nation who has a heart for those less fortunate. We have been the first to respond when even our enemies needed help during disasters. We have been a nation of people who sent missionaries to the rest of the world to spread the gospel. We have been a people whose gratitude to God for our many freedoms is etched in not only our founding documents, but also in every state Constitution. We have been a people who expressed love for God, family and country. But there are perilous times ahead for our beloved nation because even the church has lost its first love.
Every great nation throughout history faced a point, a generation, a time where its greatness began its decline for no great nation has survived the weathering of time and the weakening of its generations. America appears to be no exception.We are living during a time where our nation is declining at a rapid pace, at such a rapid pace that if not for a remnant of those who represent the traditional values of our collective populace, all would be lost even this very day. Our leadership is godless and overrun with connivers, deceivers, liars and profiteers. We have allowed our schools to become cesspools of immorality and confusion. All in the name of separation of church and state, and the church accepting such a lie.
The dripping drops of all that is wrong continue to fill the container of who we are as a people. And if this generation does not begin to stand, and stand strong, for what and who we truly are, the container of our collective national identity will overflow with lawlessness and we will be lost. Jeremiah 18:11-12 says of God's people in Judah, "Thus says the Lord, Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you: return ye now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good. And they said, There is not hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart."
Jeremiah 18:15 says the nation will be scattered, "Because my people have forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up." What is it that we are as like the people of Judah? The pulpit is so full of self-improvement messages, allowing all sorts of extra-biblical doctrines, spinning wildly, or not spinning at all, that the impact is fruitless and the result is decay. Romans 13:12: "The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light." If our nation is to be put right, only God's people can do it. It has to start somewhere. Let it be us. Let it be now.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
