“What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to him?
The Curse Upon This Nation
We have been studying what the Apostle Paul had to say about the benefits of praying in the Spirit. But I chose this verse today because, not only does this apply to Israel, but also to the United States. We have been blessed as a nation because we were founded Christian principles. From the Declaration of Independence all the way up to about 1962, we kept ourselves adhering to Christian principles.
Not all of the time. No doubt slavery and other things marred our history. But, now, we as a nation, have turned our backs on God. Thumbed our noses at Him and basically, are giving Him the middle finger salute.
All of the social problems, all of the pandemic problems, all of the murders and crime rates, the invasion on our southern border – everything, is a result of this nation embracing, promoting and encouraging activities and lifestyles that go 100% contrary to the Word of God.
Is there any wonder why we are not experiencing the “Peace of God” as Paul said we should be? Let’s read Ephesians 6:18 again and see how we are SUPPOSED to be living:
“Be careful for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, my brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of a good report – if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
I do not see any of that in our nation today. None. Not even among so called Christian churches. Most have holed up inside their four walls and are only concerned about their members and that’s it. They do not have a world vision anymore. They don’t even have a national vision anymore.
It used to be, America would train up and send missionaries off to the far parts of the world to evangelize and spread the Gospel. To get these nations to recognize that our Heavenly Father is the One True God and that Jesus is the ONLY way to Heaven. Period. End of Story.
But now, other nations, nations that 40 years ago were the recpeients of us sending them missionaries, are now sending missionaries to the United States because WE have lost our way. They are raising up missionaries to come here and spread the Gospel. Think how far we have slipped on that scale in just 40 years or so.
And, it is not the fault of the politicians alone. Nope. It is the fault of the CHRISTIAN CHURCH for not standing up to these wolves in sheep clothing who promise the world to their constituents if “you will only vote like I tell you.” Then, once the election is over, none of the promises come to pass. And they blame it all on those “conservative Christians.”
And this is taking place in the black community in every major metropolitian community. Why do you think none of these church leaders are organizing marches against the liberal, demon possessed politicians? Because they are in bed with them. They are just as guilty as Satan himself.
Am I stepping on some Spiritual toes today? Good! Don’t shout me down when I’m preaching good! Praise God and Him alone.
We, as a nation, are about to experience a judgement that was never intended for us. We, as a nation, are about to lose everything we have every cherished. And it will be nobody’s fault, except the American Church leadership. Great job guys.
All I can say is, you will answer for what you have done and failed to do.
For those who are not in church leadership, you better leave a church that is not standing up to these corrupt politicians. You better get out and take your money with you. You need to find a church that focuses on the WORD ONLY and not all the glitz and shows and entertainment. You need to repent. YOU need to repent. WE – as a nation, had better repent.
That’s all the time I have for today. This was not the teaching I planned on, but Praise God, the Holy Spirit had something to day.
I want to pray for YOU and for this nation right now.
