America is at the Cross Roads of Self Destruction or Revival
SAN DIEGO, May 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- America is at a crossroads and we must without reservation repent of the destructive course that we as a nation have pursued. Will we as a nation continue to avoid facing the horrific nature of legalized abortion in which thousands of small children are torn apart out of the comfort and protection of their mother's womb? Will we as a nation continue to turn a blind eye to the many elderly people who are starved and dehydrated to death by medical professions who believe it is extraordinary care to give what we commonly expect for ourselves each day? What kind of President, who is sworn to protect us, mandates the killing of hundreds of thousands of embryonic children to be turned into spare parts for our use?
"Woe to those who enact evil statutes, and to those who constantly record unjust decisions, So as to deprive the needy of justice, and rob the poor of My people of their rights, so that widows may be their spoil, and that they may plunder the orphans." Isaiah 10:1-2
Embryonic stem cell research is a form of state approved plundering of the orphans who should be given loving adoption, not dissection.
Do we really believe that God will bless our land as we celebrate the disordered sinful condition of homosexuality, flagrant fornication and shameless adultery and easy divorce as some kind of expression of freedom? Can we even begin to consider the far reaching consequences of using birth control like the Pill and RU-486, when we are clearly eradicating our own future citizens? Is this an intelligent response to our national interests? Is this any way to secure our social security by killing our own children, while funding useless unconstitutional departments and programs? Does it make sense to ignore our borders and yet punish our unborn American children for being conceived?
Bin Laden and his wicked ilk could only dream of such wonderful results of an enemy who eliminates their own children and pursues mindless materialism, all in the name of hedonistic freedom. Will our vilification of those who strap bombs to children be justified when we ourselves kill millions of children of our own by abortion? These Jihadists kill in the name of Allah; we have killed in the name of 'choice'. We end up with the same result, dead children and broken lives.
How can we even go back to work knowing that our children will be indoctrinated by the public school system with a disdain for God and His commandments? How can we as parents be true to our first responsibility to protect our children when we release them to people who undermine our God given authority?
We are to render to Caesar the things that are his, but does the government own the truth? Do we not as the people of God and ambassadors for Christ have a responsibility to remind the government the truth of God and where its authority originates? Can we not remind the government that it is answerable not only to us, but to God Himself?
"Can a throne of destruction be allied with thee, one that devises mischief by decree?" the Prophet Isaiah asked. There is a resounding "No" to that question. We are not allied with God when we fund and enforce the right of mothers to kill their own children. We end up being His enemies. "For their feet run to evil, and they hasten to shed blood." Proverbs 1:16
"They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons, and shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with the blood." Psalm 106:37-38
When any government works to kill its own citizens, especially children; does not that government become an enemy of its own country? Pretty strong accusation you say? While we spew our outrage over terrorists, our own government is complicit is shedding the innocent blood of its children. We should demand to know by what authority the government of the United States gives us the right to kill the unborn child, mandate immoral teachings in the schools and raid our earnings to fill the bloated budgets of those who waste the hard earned dollars of the American people? I would call that stealing or theft by any measure. Their throne is built upon destruction of the unborn, the children in our schools and even their inheritance.
"It is an abomination for kings to commit wicked acts, for a throne is established on righteousness." Proverbs 16:12 It is apparent that righteousness is far from the minds of most people in political office.
And "When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, But when a wicked man rules, people groan. Proverbs 29:2 We have all been doing a lot of groaning lately for good reason. The majority of those who are ruling over us are truly wicked. Either by ignorance or by intention, their actions are destroying the land our forefathers bled and died for.
As I have said before, America is at a crossroads and we must hold our government accountable for its actions; for our children's futures depend on it. Even those in black robes around the country have done wickedly in the sight of God and man. Because of their many reprehensible rulings, "the wicked strut about on every side, when vileness is exalted among the sons of men." Psalm 12:8 and we ask "How long will you judge unjustly, and show partiality to the wicked?" Psalm 82:2
But it would be very shortsighted for me to only throw accusations at our government, because it is in its wayward, rebellious state for one reason alone. The Church.
The Christian community somewhere along the way has ignored the moral atrocities of our government and continues to practice moral cowardice and spiritual apostasy. We have forgotten to win the lost to Christ and make them disciples. For this sin of omission our children have been subjected to the teachings of those who hate the true God of the Bible. It is time for the church to regain a gut wrenching heartfelt repentance, its passionate tears for the lost, a frightful fear of the living God who will judge the living and the dead. We must once again regain a sense of awe for the Word of God which defines the parameters of our faith and practice. Our gospel is truly good news if many can see that gospel at work in our own lives. If we can regain our sense of godly authority, we can, with a clear conscience, demand that the government amend its ways before all out anarchy takes over. For the seeds of State mandated lawlessness are at work and the church must reverse this trend with the spiritual weapons that God has given us.
If we are to retake America for Christ, the church must recapture its disgust for the immorality of fornication, adultery, and easy divorce. Marriage and children must once again be an example of godly order and discipline, not selfishness and sin. The church must once again decide to have the identity of being salt and light instead of something to be trampled on. For without a broken heart and the sharpness of obedience to Christ and His Word, we will never see the light of a new day in which revival is grown on the soil of this beloved land.
I would hope that most Christians are willing to suffer or die for their families, their children and their nation's future, because they truly are worth it. The question remains, does anyone still have the heart to pray, act or even to lead others in this struggle for truth and righteousness? Or is our nation condemned to be a byword and an example of what happens when we forget the Lord our God? But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. And as for you and your House, will you serve the Lord? Our very survival is at stake.
