Church: Awake From Your Slumber – Our Enemy NEVER sleeps!
So, you are so overjoyed at the election of Donald Trump. You dusted off your rose colored glasses and are wearing them once again. Do you think because Trump beat Clinton in the election, that America is safe from harm, and we can all go back to lives of complacency?
That is EXACTLY how the enemy of our souls wants us to behave.
We are still under judgment
Do you think that God winks at these?
· Abortion – Every day over 3000 babies are aborted and sold for parts or discarded as trash
· Gay marriage – The definition of marriage was given by God. Our SCOTUS changed that – nationally.
· Hatred of Israel – Just look at our college campuses and at the professors – the hatred is overwhelming
· Public schools run by the government – God, prayer and the Bible banned – Islam embraced
But you say to me “But President Trump will change these things.” I dare say that for Mr. Trump to correct and change these evils in a short period of time is next to impossible. I believe that he will try. But don’t forget, if he attempts to negate Roe Vs Wade, it will probably go back to the States, and very possibly the States will continue abortion on demand.
Donald Trump is a defender of gay marriage
As a Christian, I want that decision to redefine marriage to be overturned! I don’t think that this is on the “to do” list of Donald Trump.
President-Elect Trump has tunnel vision right now. He is determined to make America “Great Again.” What does that entail exactly? Bringing jobs back to America; decreasing the corporate taxes so that will stimulate businesses to hire and to return to America; Jobs jobs and more jobs (which is good – don’t get me wrong). Also, a strong military once again, which is a good thing as well.
God says that America should be “Godly” again
BUT I believe that what God is looking for in America is true repentance and that America would once again be “Godly.” Maybe the world does not see a need for our nation to be godly again. The “Make America Great Again” mantra does resonate with most of America. They do not understand that the Lord’s anger burns against us.
We are still like Sodom and Gomorrah
I agree that if Hillary Clinton would have prevailed in her quest to be president, that would have accelerated the consequences of God’s judgment against us. But are we not still like Sodom and Gomorrah? We have been given a reprieve from persecution. Let us not ignore nor waste this window of opportunity to share the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Why is the church not outside of every abortion mill, protesting the slaughtering of the sacred lives of the babies? Complacency.
Why are Christian parents still allowing their children to attend public schools which are anti-Christian in all ways? Complacency.
A heavy feeling in my spirit
I know that the following verse from Scripture is addressed to the Jews. But I also feel that it is applicable to the United States at this time:
“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
Shall we escape?
I believe that we will not escape God’s wrath upon America – UNLESS there is a great awakening to our Lord, and massive number of people are saved. And UNLESS there is a great revival within the church; a turning away from heresy and blasphemous teaching. UNLESS the itching ear crowd stops finding themselves teachers who teach and preach fables to make them “comfortable in their sins.”
UNLESS Christians who have been complacent for many years, are broken before our Holy God.
“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise” (Psalm 51:17). (emphasis added)
King David – A man after God’s own heart
Anyone who is familiar with the Bible will know that King David broke every one of God’s Commandments. Why then would God call him a man after His own heart?
It is because of David’s broken spirit before God (when he was confronted with his sin by Nathan) and David’s awareness that he had sinned against God. David became a broken man and he repented before God. God accepted his brokenness and his repentant heart. The consequences of David’s sin was the death of his baby. God is waiting for America. Will she repent?
Will the Christians in America repent?
Hopefully, most will. They need to not only repent, but they need to pray for America and for the lost. They (we) need to share the Gospel in new ways. We need to ask the Lord to show us what He would have us do to share Jesus Christ with the lost.
If these things do not happen, then I am sorry to have to bring bad news – but I believe that this country will be destroyed. We have been a beacon of light to so many nations of the world. God wants us to return to this. But perhaps it is too late. Only God knows the answer to this.
PRAY and SHARE – there are people dying every day without the Lord Jesus.
“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.” ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
