The Death of America Part 4
We have seen previously that America will be destroyed probably by a nuclear attack from Russia. So the question now becomes, Is there anything that we as Americans can do to prevent this? The short answer is no. God has already declared in His Word that this will take place.
Why would God allow this? For sure, sin in America is out of control. We could look at the homosexual agenda, drugs, abortion, abusive behavior. The list goes on, but I believe the reason for America's failure is ultimately the Christian. We have failed. Ezekiel 26:22 says, " Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them." America has reached this point. Even the religious leaders of the day have placed no difference between the holy and the profane. Revelation tells us that we are kings and priests, and we have made no difference. Our families have failed. Our churches have failed. Our country has failed.
Further in the book of Ezekiel God says, "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them..." God is looking for someone to stand in the gap--someone to stand for Him. I wonder if God were to look at your heart right now (and He is), would He find you standing for Him in the gap?
I hear that the way to cook frogs is to put them in cool water and slowly turn up the heat. If they were placed immediately into boiling water they would jump out, but the gradual raising of the temperature lulls them into complacency. Is that happening in your life? Have you been slowly lulled to sleep? God expects us to make a stand, to go against the grain, to be effective for Him. In these last days, will you join me in doing just that?
