"The Remedy for a Sinful Nation"

“The Remedy for a Sinful Nation”



Seek good and not evil so that you may live, and the Lord, the God of Hosts, will be with you, as you have claimed.  Hate evil and love good; establish justice in the gate.  Perhaps the Lord of Hosts, will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.        Amos 5:14-15


This is a message to the nation of Israel from God, which was given to the Prophet Amos.  I believe that this message is applicable to the United States, today.  God says that we should; “Seek good and not evil so that you might live, and the Lord, the God of Hosts, will be with you, as you have claimed.” 


In today’s world, in which we presently abide.  It seems that the majority of the people are doing just the opposite, it appears as though they are seeking after evil endeavors and fleeing from the good.  I believe that this whole world is facing a catastrophic judgment, because it has chosen to SEEK after those things that are contrary to the Word of the LIVING GOD. 


Is there HOPE?  Yes, IF this old, sinful, corrupt, dying world would TURN or REPENT from its sins, and SEEK GOOD and NOT EVIL and would HATE EVIL and LOVE GOOD, there is the opportunity to receive God’s MERCY and GRACE, just as it was for the nation of Israel.  


However, it seems as though our own nation is ignoring the Word of the Living God, and instead following the path to SPIRITUAL destruction.  It, in many cases, is embracing the evil, sinful, corrupt things and shunning the good, godly, moral things.  Yet there is STILL HOPE.


In 2Chronicles 7:14, God says:  “If my people, who 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, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”  If ALL the TRUE BELIEVERS, would apply this Scripture to their lives and LIVE IT, DAILY, we might be able to make a HUGE difference in this world. 


If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, then you are a part of the PROBLEM, and are facing that catastrophic judgment.  However, you have the opportunity NOW to come to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, and to SEEK GOOD and NOT EVIL.  You do that 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 HATE EVIL and LOVE GOOD, and become a part of the solution and not a part of the problem.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
