It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that our nation is in trouble. We have dared the justice of God through homosexuality, abortion, lawlessness, injustice, violence, serving other gods, and our failure to deal with tyranny, just to name a few. America has gotten to the point where literally we have given God the finger, spit against Heaven and dared God to react… and react He will for we are sure to reap what we sow. (Galatians 6:7) As the Bible says in Jeremiah 9:9, “Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the LORD: shall not My soul be avenged on such a nation as this?”
Recently, at the Republican National Convention, we saw a fine display as to where this nation is at and these are supposed to be the “Good guys!” We saw sodomites, which the Lord calls an abomination (Leviticus 18:22), being praised, glorified, and cheered on by the masses of Republicans assembled. We saw prayers being offered to foreign gods, which is a direct slap in the face to the one true Almighty God (Exodus 20:3), and we saw hordes of people looking to a man to save America when that is not possible!
If you are looking to a man or woman to save America, you are sadly mistaken. If you are looking to the Republican Party to save America, you are sadly mistaken. If you are looking to Donald Trump, a man who has been married 3 times, wants to protect the LGBT and sees no need to repent before a just and holy God for his sins, to save America, you are really mistaken! How on earth is he going to be faithful to the American people when he has not even been faithful to his own wife, let alone God?
No, the only Savior for America and the only Hope for America and the only One who can make America great again, is Jesus Christ! Do not lose your heads in momentary excitement folks. The Bible says in Matthew 7:16-20 that you know men by their fruit, and any man who does not see his need for a Savior is not fit to run this country.
In I Samuel 8, Israel rejected God as their King to reign over them and wanted an earthly king instead so they would be like the other nations. They had forsaken the One True God who delivered them out of Egypt. Instead of their faithfulness to Him in return for His deliverance and love, they wickedly departed from the Lord and served other gods instead, much like the America of Today.
In this country, we were founded on the declaration “No king but King Jesus.” Our Founding Forefathers knew this and that’s why they made an appeal to Heaven to deliver them from the tyrant King George and resolved to make Christ, not man, their King. They trusted in God against all odds and placed their lives in His divine hands; and He alone delivered them from all their enemies, just like Israel of old.
What has happened to us America?
What makes a nation turn its back on God? Our sins, which are transgressions of the Law of God (I John 3:4), have put us in this position today, but instead of repenting and turning from our wicked ways (2 Chronicles 7:14) we keep daring the justice of God and have the audacity to say that an unrepentant, unfaithful man can make us great again, when only God can do that.
I say, “No King, but King Jesus.” We are so busy squabbling over the scraps from the table that we have completely lost sight of the feast in righteousness we were originally intended to eat with Christ at the head. I have hope, but it is not in a man. My only hope is Jesus Christ. I look to no other. He, and He alone, can make America great again. Think about it.
