I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the direction our nation is going in relation to what the Scriptures teach concerning the last days.We in America are burdened with a staggering debt the likes of which the world has never seen. A debt so massive that it can never be repaid,yet there seems to be no cry of urgency to curb spending and live within our means.Like a plague of biblical proportions this debt hangs over us and each succeeding generation will be enslaved by it.

Evil is rampant in our nation. From the penthouse to the outhouse there seems to be no end to what man is capable of doing to each other.We are bombarded with all manner of despicable news on an unparallelled magnitude to the point that we are not even fazed by it any longer.When was the last time you heard something on the evening news that stopped you in your tracks?

What has happened to us? How on earth did we get this way? The answers are found within the pages of God’s Holy Word.

John 3:19 (NKJV)
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.   emphasis mine

God has sent unto us a better way through His Son Jesus Christ,yet just as the verse above states man has chosen darkness over light.Because of this choice,we are reaping the consequences of those choices.The bible warns us plainly here:

Galatians 6:7 (KJV)
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

We have bought the great lie of Satan that we can chart our own destiny for we are beyond the need for God.We have believed the lie that we are in charge and not God.

Psalm 53:1 (NKJV)
The fool has said in his heart,“There is no God.” They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; There is none who does good.

Only a fool would say there is no God.Yet that is exactly what we are saying when we declare our independence from the Lord.

From where I sit on the front row,our nation has headed down a slippery slope and we are playing with fire.Our hardness of heart and unwillingness to repent and turn again unto the Lord have brought us to the brink of destruction.We in America are facing insurmountable challenges without God as our Leader.

Please join with me in praying for our nation that we as a people will once again look unto Jesus,the Author and Finisher of our faith for the answers we so desperately need.

Be blessed,
