“WARNING: To A Nation in Peril”
But, our God, you are merciful and quick to forgive; you are loving, kind, and very patient. So you never turned away from them---
But when they were at peace, they would turn against you, and you would hand them over to their enemies…
You warned them to turn back and discover true life by obeying your laws. But they stubbornly refused and continued to sin.
For years, you were patient, and your Spirit warned them with messages spoken by your prophets. Still they refused to listen, and you handed them over to their enemies.---------
These verses are part of the People of Israel’s prayer of confession to God, for the sins of their nation. As I read this prayer, I couldn’t help, but think that this could be a “wake-up” call for our ONCE great nation.
Our nation started out on GODLY PRINCIPALS and for a period of time we upheld those GODLY PRINCIPALS, but then we became our own worst enemy, allowing Satan to enter into the one thing God had blessed, because of our STRONG and ABIDING FAITH. He blessed our nation and made it a STRONG, GREAT Nation that WAS respected and honored for its STRENGTH AND FORTITUDE, for its LEADERSHIP QUALITIES and other HONORABLE attributes.
Then came Satan, and our GREAT Nation is on a slippery slope to its ultimate destruction. We the people, have allowed some awful atrocities to come about in our SOCIETY, GOVERNMENT, and even our FAMILIES. These atrocities have weakened us, and discredited us in the eyes of other nations, but MORE IMPORTANTLY, it has caused us to sin against the ALMIGHTY God.
We have allowed the government to remove God from all areas of our life, from schools, to public buildings and grounds, and even to threats of changing our RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS and interfering with our RELIGIOUS organizations. We have become a nation where WRONG IS RIGHT AND RIGHT IS WRONG. And so far God has been GRACIOUS AND MERCIFUL, but that is quickly coming to an end. Soon this old, sinful world will experience God’s wrath. Therefore, we as God’s Children need to be like the Children of Israel and be on our knees praying a prayer of CONFESSION for our Nation. WE NEED A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING across this land.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to Christ then you will PERSONALLY experience God’s wrath, because you are living in sin and you are a part of what is destroying our nation. But you have the opportunity NOW to change your destiny by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you before, God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a part of what is RIGHT in this land. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting!!!
