One Nation Under God, No Longer

Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.  Ecclesiastes 12:13-4

America was once considered "one nation under God."  Considering the laws being passed in this nation today, I don't believe we are a nation under God.  I can only imagine that Almighty God is weeping over America and the path we have chosen. 

We as a nation have chosen to reject Almighty God and the truth found in His Word.  We can't re-write truth.  It doesn't matter how we feel or how we think, truth is found only in the Word of God.  Isaiah 45:19 - I, the LORD speak the truth; I declare what is right.  Truth has been substituted with a lie straight from the pits of hell.  People have stifled the truth that God reveals in His Holy Word in order to believe anything that supports their own selfish desires and lifestyles.  The Bible is the only standard of truth.  We must evaluate all other opinions in light of its teachings. 

Isaiah 59:15 - Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.  The LORD looked and was displeased that there was no justice.  Sin becomes prevalent when God's truth no longer fills our lives.  God's truth is no longer filling the lives of the American people and those who stand for the truth of God's Word are being persecuted verbally.

The Bible clearly tells us that those who reject the truth will experience the judgment of a Holy God.  But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger - Romans 2:8.  Almighty God will not ignore or condone willful rebellion.  There is coming a day of judgment.  Read God's Holy Word and you will see that judgment came upon those who rejected God.  God loves this nation and desires all to turn to Him for saving grace but if we do not repent and turn from our wicked ways, judgment will come. 

So what do we do?  How do we live in a nation that does not seem to abide by the truth found in God's Word.  We must acknowledge we are not in a war against flesh and blood.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm - Ephesians 6:12.  We are facing a powerful army of demons controlled by Satan and their goal is to defeat Christ's church.  It is the time that all those who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ stand strong in His mighty power.  We must put on the full armor of God because this battle can not be fought in mere human strength.  Ephesians 6:10-11 - Be strong in the Lord and his mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devils schemes. 

Christians, it is time for us to truly be the light of Christ in this dark world.  We need to take the Gospel Message to all with a sense of urgency.  We do not know the time or the day when judgment is coming and the truth is, all who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ will spend an eternity in hell.

Dear Heavenly Father forgive us as a nation.  I pray that Christians will know the truth found in Your Word.  We must know the truth so we will not be deceived.  Help us LORD to lovingly take the Gospel Message out into this dark world.  In Jesus Name I Pray.....Amen.
