“And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; IF IT DO EVIL IN MY SIGHT (capitals mine), that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.”
Throughout Bible history there have been many kingdoms which for some purpose have been Blessed by God. Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Mede-Persian, Greek, Roman, Ottoman, Spanish, British, and yes, even the United States, have all been Blessed with power, authority, wealth, etc. BUT, every single one of them have eventually fallen from their positions of power and wealth, everyone except, at least as of the writing of this article, the United States of America. Each one had a purpose in God’s Plan but as they all failed to repent of their continuing sins and follow His Way and His Commandments, they all ultimately fell. I doubt anyone would question the United States, established in 1776 with the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain, has for almost 250 years become the greatest country in the history of the world. We have been the most prosperous, the most innovative, the strongest militarily, and the most independent with liberty and justice for all. We have welcomed more people to our shores than any country in world history and enabled them to live “the American Dream”. Have we made mistakes? Absolutely! But to date with our Judeo-Christian traditions, we have basically set ourselves up as a beacon of light for the entire world. That is why so many want to move here!
I don’t know about you but I recently wanted to read the United States Constitution and our Declaration of Independence. I was a bit surprised when I read the last paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, written by our forefathers. They specifically asked God to Bless us and acknowledged we needed His Protection in order to survive and prosper:
- We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
Our Founding Fathers understood what the Bible had told them. The people of the United States must live by the laws of God, not those of man. Have we? According to American Action News, in 2020 there were a total of 42,655,372 deaths worldwide from ONE thing. Now I know we are all well aware of Covid-19; major cases of AIDS and malaria; famines; record setting number of hurricanes and fires; earthquakes; and, continuing wars throughout the world. Add the deaths of all these together and they still do not approach the single greatest cause of death. Do you know what killed more human beings in 2020 throughout the world than any other thing? ABORTION!!!
In 1973 in the United States the Supreme Court approved of Roe vs. Wade allowing for a woman the right to choose whether to abort her baby or continue with it to birth. I previously wrote about this (Child Sacrifice to the god of Baal & Abortion Today) and hoped to shed light on the ultimate punishment we would receive if we did not cease the killing of an unborn child Created by God. Since Roe vs. Wade was passed, over 60 million babies have been aborted in the United States alone and we have played a major role in many other countries also changing their laws and legalizing abortion. So, what is the outcome we are destined for? The same thing that happened to Ba’al!
“Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents; They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, WHICH I COMMANDED NOT (capitals mine), nor spake of it, neither came it into my mind.”
Thankfully, God, who sent His only Begotten Son to die for OUR sins, is gracious enough to forgive us IF we repent of our sins. If we as a nation do this, God will not do to us what we deserve for our abominations. If we turn from our sins, our evil ways, He will spare us.
“At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.”
“And God saw their works, that THEY TURNED FROM THEIR EVIL WAY (capitals mine); and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.”
Not only will God forgive us of our sins IF we truly repent of our evil ways, but He will also heal our land. In healing our land, I believe He will bring us back to a government developed by our Founding Fathers who saw a country that followed God’s Law.
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS (capitals mine); then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, AND WILL HEAL THEIR LAND (capitals mine).”
2 Chronicles 7:14
So, to answer the question “Is it too late?” I would have to say, in conjunction with what the Lord has already told us, it is never too late to repent, at least UNTIL the Judgement arrives. Once it arrives, we must and will pay the price for our sins. Knowing what we know about Bible prophecy, do you see a double meaning here? Today the world is filled with sin, not just the killing of an unborn child created solely by God, but many, many other things. We individually must be held accountable for not only what we do but what we endorse, otherwise as good as we think we are, Jesus will turn us away from Heaven and tell us he never knew us. Sometimes actions DO speak louder than words. We can not “earn” our way to Heaven with our works because our sin will always usurps those works. Only by recognizing ALL our sins and humbly acknowledging them to God and asking Him to forgive our sins with the sacrificial blood of Jesus can we be saved. We know eventually God’s Wrath will be unleashed on an unrepentant world, one that sees nothing wrong with what they are doing. At that time, IT IS TOO LATE!
God does not wish ill on anyone. He wants all of us to voluntarily come to Him. Knowing this as a promise directly from God is so very, very comforting I have made it my mission to attempt to reach out to as many as I can, not to scare but to make people aware at this exact moment it is not too late but we are very fast approaching that time when our decision to reject God has been made and His decision to punish the evil will follow. It is critical for all of us to “…therefore comfort one another with these words.”
I am also going to ask all that are reading this to do something I have not in the past asked. If you are getting anything out of my posts by reading them on Facebook, LinkedIn or by having them shared with you by a family member or friend, I am asking you to go to www.comfortoneanother.com and sign up to receive my future posts via email instead of relying on social media to get them. I have said numerous times I believe as a Christian the day is fast approaching when posts like mine will not be allowed any longer. When you see what is happening today in the news with these sites censoring political speech you have to know censoring religious speech is not far behind. I honestly don’t know if this post will even be shared on those sites. By signing up, you will simply shift from looking for them on social media but instead will be getting an email directly from me via my software provider WordPress. When you sign up, you will almost immediately receive an email reply asking you to verify it was you. By responding quickly yes, it was you who signed up, you will then automatically get all new posts on your email account. This verification step reduces spam on my site.
The Lord is Returning soon and I pray we all will be there to meet up with Him in the clouds. May God Bless you!
I’m likely not alone in this feeling that so many are “enjoying the darkness” and/or going about busyness and debauchery “as in the days of Noah”, seeking a ‘tickling ear message’, totally butchering their own bodies, etc., that I don’t see the ‘great awakening’. That certainly doesn’t mean it cannot happen but my own church has become a social center of busybodies, it’s discouraging. Apologies for lamenting so– I often think of Jeremiah, “the weeping prophet”, whom you have eloquently quoted here. Well done, Mike. I am looking up! (Already look forward to your daily emails. Thank you. 🙂
Thank you Dale! May I send you my 3 free books? I may have asked you before for your address but if you are uncomfortable responding to this note, you can contact me on my personal email email@example.com or give me a call on my cell phone at 601-613-9991. Thank you for your interest!
Thank you my Brother.
Thank you Dave! I hope all is going well with you!
Thank you for your post/email. I keep thinking we will have a Great Awakening in this great country of ours. But then, I continue to be disappointed. Church leaders seem to be hesitant to tell the government BACK OFF!! Twice this past week I have been exposed to the idea (not new by any measure) that it is now our time to individually share our witness. And Mike, you are doing a tremendous job. Thank you for that.
Thank you Gladys! I am consistently amazed at how things keep coming up to give me things to write about. I may read something. I may see something on TV. I may have someone ask a question but he Lord continues to influence me in what I write. I am pleased to tell you Comfort One Another – 2020 is at the printers and I hope to have it our within a month or so. Do you still live on Milton Court?
Yes, still at the same address. Do you have extra books that can be purchased?
I made a commitment to never sell or accept money for doing this. How many do you want by year?
Books have arrived. Thanks. One daughter is here, from Beaumont, and will get her 4 copies. My other daughter will be here tomorrow, from NE Texas. She will get her 4 copies. When Kate goes back to Beaumont on Sunday she will take my son’s copies. Perfect timing.
Wow! That was quick. I just got them in the mail yesterday (Wednesday). I hope the kids get something out of the books.
