I recently saw where a well-known evangelist is going to be traveling from capital to capital or city to city and gathering people together to pray for America. While I, of course, am not against prayer, and praying is most essential, the Lord did tell us that faith without works is dead. James 2:17 says, “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.”
Can you imagine if all those hundreds of thousands of people, who will be gathering together to pray, would actually turn their prayers into “action” and do something about the problems that we see in America today? Can you imagine how this country would change?
You see, people can feel good about themselves for attending an event such as this. Many will feel that they did their duty before God and their part for our country, but doing your duty does not entail only one day out of the year. Doing your duty before God and man entails much more than that. You see, duty requires sacrifice. And real love will sacrifice for its country and for its brothers and sisters. Jesus said in John 15:13, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
How much love do you see in America today that is willing to lay down its life for others? I see a selfish so-called “love” today that is no real love at all.
The American people are so preoccupied with their own lives and activities, their own family, sports, worthless games, and more, that they have become willfully blind to the destruction that is blatantly going on all around them. I cannot believe how vain and frivolous the American people, for the most part, have become; and what worthless activities occupy their time, that they have not stopped to think of the consequences of where this path will lead us. Have you stopped to think as to what your children and grandchildren will have to deal with in 20 or 30 years in this country? For the most part, the American people have dropped the ball, and it’s only going to get worse unless we do something about it.
Let me finish out that verse in John 15. The Lord goes on to say in verse 14, “Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.” The Lord did not command us to be just “hearers” of His Word, He commanded us to be “doers” of His Word. (James 1:22). I fear that many Americans will wish they had been doers of God’s Word rather than hearers when it all comes crashing down.
So, the question to ask yourself is, which one are you going to be? A George Washington or a Benedict Arnold? Someone who stands up and fights to restore our nation or someone who is no more than a coward, who betrays that which is right and sides with the enemy? The choice is up to you!
