Judgment on America
America, just like Israel has been blessed by the Lord and was founded on Christian principles. But, we have turned from Him to do what seems right in our own eyes. We have turned to idols. We have made Hollywood our idols, we have made material gain our idols, we have made self our idol. We now call evil good and promote homosexuality as an alternate lifestyle. We sacrifice our unborn children on the altar of convenience. We “tolerate” the worship of false gods and coddle to religions that worship false gods. We sent money as a nation to rebuild Mosques while the Church as a body sleeps. We have turned from the Lord and are arrogant. We have removed prayer from our schools and Bibles are now forbidden. We have twisted our own first amendment of the Constitution so that people now believe that we cannot have religion in government rather than keeping the government out of religion.
But the Lord is not about religion, He is about relationship. The founders just used the term religion. It will do no good to turn to “religion” as religion is man’s way of trying to be righteous enough to reach God. God is about relationship, coming to earth to take the place of sinful people, to die with their sins, to raise without them and to pardon every person who will place their faith in Yeshua (Jesus) the Christ.
What do we, as Christians, need to do? 2 Chronicles 7:14 says it best: “if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (ESV)
“If MY people…” It will take those who profess to be followers of Jesus Christ turning from their lukewarm complacency and apathy and humbling themselves before their Lord, seeking His will, and obeying Him.
But that is not all…For anyone who is awake and sees the danger of His judgment coming, we are called to be a “Watchman on the wall”. Ezekiel 33:6 (ESV), “But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.”
We must warn people. We will all stand before Christ and give an account for what we did the the information, tools, gifts, and talents that He gave us.
Repent now. Go now and tell people. Time is running out.
