What has happened to America? What is the root cause of the unrest in our Nation? I wrote a letter to the editor about four months ago when we were having the floods and tornados, which cost billions of dollars in damage. I made the Statement that if America didn’t repent things would get worse. It didn’t take long for that prediction to come to pass. Now we see the protests, burning, stealing, and killings almost every day. There is no respect for authority anymore.
America has lost her way. We are no longer One Nation Under God and Indivisible. We are a divided nation. If Jesus Christ had shown up at the protest, they would have tried to kill him. The protestors were not only burning our flag, they were burning Bibles and churches. What is the cause for these types of actions?
I know the answer. We have a generation who knows nothing about the Bible or even cares to read it. When you don’t believe there is a God or that there is a place called Hell, there are no restrictions on what man will do.
America started her downward spiral when the U.S Supreme Court ruled on Roe versus Wade and made it legal for unborn babies to be murdered while still in their mother’s womb. The womb should be the safest place in the world for an unborn baby, but it is now the most dangerous place to be.
The U.S Supreme Court then ruled marriage was no longer just between a man and a women, but a man could marry a man and a woman could marry a woman. Our downward spiral continued. Now it’s legal to have a sex change by surgery and be called the opposite sex of what they once were.
We don’t have to worry about another nation destroying America, we are doing that from within our own country. The U.S Supreme Court will have to answer to God one day.
Our Educational System has failed us as well. Schools have, and still do, teach that we evolved from animals, not created by God. Now we are seeing the by-product of that in the streets of our cities.
We are doing the exact opposite of what the Bible teaches us to do. We are shaking our fist in God’s face telling him we will do what we want to do. When we turn aside from the principles of the Bible we get exactly what we deserve. When this happens we can’t expect anything but the collapse of our nation.
The protests you are seeing in our streets is no longer about racism. The protests we are seeing today is for one thing only and that is to destroy our way of life in America. Our cities are being destroyed, our policeman being attacked without impunity, our great flag being burned, our businesses being destroyed, and murders are up 240%.
Most of the senseless murders are young black men, women and even babies. Where is the outrage over that? Some of those shot are one year old to twenty five years old. Where is the outrage over this?
Our churches must accept some of the blame as well. Back in the 1940’s and 1950’s the churches as a whole preached Hell hot and sin black. Now most churches are a place of entertainment, movies, gossip, Social Justice Programs, and Super Bowl Sundays. How can these practices save anyone?
The church needs to get back to preaching the bloody gospel of the Bible under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. This and this alone can change an individuals heart and change their way of thinking.
I see more destruction coming to our nation. I believe there will be blood spilled in our streets over this next election. I can see the septure of power shifting from America to the European Union in the next few years. America was once the pride of the world. Now she is the laughing stock of the world.
At the beginning of this article, I asked what is the root cause of the unrest in America. Here is the answer to that question.
Leviticus chapter 26, verse 3- If you walk in my statues and keep my commandments, and do them verse 4- Then I will give you rain in due season and the land shall yield her increase and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. Verse 6- And I will give peace in the land and you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid, and I will rid the evil beast out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. Verse 7- And you shall chase your enemies and they shall fall before your sword.
Does this sound like what America is doing? No, just the opposite. Only and I mean only the return of Jesus Christ can stop the madness going on in the world today. This virus plaguing our nation and the world is not going away.
This is only the beginning of what lies ahead. 2021 will be the deciding factor of whether or not we will survive as a free country and a testing period for the churches and where they stand.
America stands at a crossroad not knowing which way to turn. We must repent and turn back to God or we will not survive. If that doesn’t happen then the following will be the results:
Leviticus chapter 26, verse 14- If you will not hearken unto me and will not do all these commandments, verse 15- And if you shall despise my statues, or if your soul abhor my judgements so that you will not do all my commandments and you break my covenant, this will I do unto you, I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague (plague) that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart and you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. Verse 17- And I will set my face against you and you shall be slain by your enemies, they who hate you shall reign over you and you shall flee when none pursues you. Verse 19- And I will break the pride of your power.
This is what lies ahead for America if we don’t allow God back into our country. If America doesn’t repent, it will not matter who is elected President, we will not survive. The Bible states that the wicked shall be turned into Hell and all the nations that forgot God.
My hope and prayer is that the Revival will sweep across America and bring us back to God. If this does not happen it is over for America as a free nation.
Those of you who are true believers, please pray for our nation that God will touch our leaders heart.
