This is a letter to our friends –
It is not over!
If God is just, America has a bleak and a short future! Treason in the Executive Department, Cowardice and Corruption in the Legislative Department, Lawlessness in the Supreme Court, what could possibly go wrong?
A large and well-meaning group of citizens have been so separated from American principles of government that they support a prideful candidate who promises to solve our problems by disregarding our structural principles. (Just as Adolf Hitler did and as Obama has done.)
Many good people have hunkered down in the fortress with the drawbridge raised, waiting for Jesus to come rescue them. (I have seen no providential orders to go on defense!) They are tired and discouraged by news, so they disconnect and choose not to know what is happening. After all – There is nothing they can do about it!
We could wake up any day to instant hyper-inflation. Dollars will be worthless. Everything stops. The utilities are off. Perhaps days or weeks before any return to stability of a sort.
Tyrannical government could declare martial law. Our liberty, free speech, free movement, and 2016 elections could vanish in the cause of “National Security”.
Muslim terrorism could sweep our land – Convert, accept human slavery, or die!
So what should we do?
First – Get alone. If you can, find a tree and sit under it. Have a serious talk with yourself about what you believe. Get serious. Is there a God that rules the universe or not? Are you ready to stake your life on your belief?
Next – “We the people” have broken all of the ten-commandments big time! All of the things above are well deserved! Humble yourself, repent for yourself and for America, (Don’t repent for the “other guy,” you have had a part in America’s sin by active participation or tacit inaction.)
Next – Ask yourself, “Is it true that I can do nothing about the situation?” If that be so, then you are a helpless victim. If that be not so, then get your head out of the sand, stand up, and begin doing what you truly believe you should be doing. (Caution – Do not lie to yourself, be brutally honest!) You might begin by praying and asking for guidance!
Lastly – If you have secret sins, choose to turn your back on them. Turn around and shape up soldier, there is a war to be won!
There truly is a God who is just,
But also merciful.
He said that if “We the people” will do four things,
He will do three things.
“If my people which are called by my name,
Will humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face,
And turn from their wicked ways.
Then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins,
And heal their land.”
[II Chronicles 7:14]
God has invested a great deal in America, demonstrating how people should relate to Him and to one another. Either He will use us to set the course, or He will sweep us away and use a righteous remnant. America has a covenant relationship with God.
