What have we become, America? What, have we become?
These are just a few headlines of emails that I have received over the past year regarding our nation. More and more every day we see the continued deterioration of America and the rejection of God and His Laws (Exodus 20). We see a blatant spitting against Heaven by the people of this nation and an absolute daring of the justice of God. Galatians 6:7 says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Hosea 8:7 says, “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind…” America has sown to the wind and she will surely reap the whirlwind.
We have a professed church in our nation more worried about not offending anyone than preaching the truth! We see ministers who are, in truth, no ministers at all, but spineless hirelings who do not protect their sheep from the wolves (John 10:12), let alone preach the unadulterated truth to the world! The church is no longer the light of our nation, but rather the reproach of its people. We, as a nation, have allowed everything and anything and for those of you who say America has not, how much of a fight have you really put up against the lawlessness you have seen from this administration and the immorality we see in our country today? Any? I am not talking about a simple good night prayer as we whimsically throw up to the Lord to bless our nation. I’m talking about an earnestness in the heat of the battle on the front lines, fighting daily against the immorality, lawlessness, and corruption that we see in America.
It was Thomas Jefferson who said “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.” America, you’re in trouble! America, you have broken God’s Laws (Exodus 20; Deuteronomy 5)! America, you have turned a blind eye as millions of babies have been murdered on your watch (Proverbs 6:16-17). America, you have watched your sports games and entertained yourself while you’re nation is being pillaged and destroyed right before your eyes. You have no one to blame but yourself!
For the most part, we have become a nation of cowards and a nation afraid to speak the truth because it might offend. We have become a nation that will not stand up for fear of being called a “bigot” or a “hater.” So what? America has turned its back on the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who has so graciously and richly lavished His goodness upon us. We are an ungrateful people. We no longer realize or understand the costly sacrifice of our freedom both in the natural in the spiritual (Isaiah 53:5). We have spit against Heaven and we will surely fall on our own backs.
Wake up! “Turn from your wicked ways,” proclaimed the prophets of old, but many times (Or rather most the time) the nation did not listen until it was too late. We have allowed that which the Lord calls an abomination, namely homosexuality (Leviticus 20:13). We have not protected the innocence of our children in school. We have stood by and let every filthy indoctrination come down upon them through education, movies, music, TV and more. What do you expect from a Just and Holy God? Will He not punish us for this? Will a good Judge not execute justice upon the wicked? Will His wrath be stayed by an unrepentant people? Absolutely not!
Isaiah 61:8 says, “For I, the LORD, love justice…” And because God is loving, and because God is good, and because God is just, He will punish evildoers. Now that’s what I call love.
Your sin will find you out America (Numbers 32:23)! It has already found you out. You have been weighed in the balance and found wanting. So, what are you going to do? The only hope for America is repentance, sincere brokenness on account of her sins and rebellion against God (Psalm 51:17). The only hope for this nation is to turn from our wicked ways and return back to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (2 Chronicles 7:14). Not only that, but America needs to bring justice upon the criminals who have tried to destroy our land. The only hope for America is found in our Savior, Jesus Christ. You can reject Him, deny Him, and ignore Him, but that doesn’t mean He’s going to go away. Just because you may say that you don’t believe in buses, does not mean that if you stand in front of one as it is driving down the road, it’s not going to hit you!
You’re not promised tomorrow. Behold, now is the appointed time, today is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2). The alarm has been sounding, the truth of this ministry has been ringing in your ears for years. Have you ignored it? Have you silenced it? Have you turned a blind eye to what’s going on in your world today? Then beware, for you will surely eat the fruit of your own ways. Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand (Matthew 3:2). That is your only hope.
