America’s Second Chance

“We know that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong. Do you not think an angel rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm?” – Thomas Jefferson in reference to the promise and faithfulness of God turning this country into the most powerful and prosperous nation in world history.
We are at the point once again when the forces of evil are stirring up every demonic attack and in this whirlwind is the angel (GOD) directing the storm.
Experts, pundits, fake news, and every kind of information has been thrown at us by these people who think they know what is going on, however, we can know the truth by the Bible.
The best way to explain what is going on in the world today is by going to the book of #Amos.
God said in Amos 3:2 “You only have I chosen of all the families of the earth”. He promised them blessings not made to any other nation, however, due to their disobedience and more severely – their #rejection of #God by not living up to their part of the agreement, #God said “Therefore, I will punish you for all of your sins” (Amos 3:2)
Here comes the parallel to America today. For over two centuries America has grown to become the single greatest nation ever to exist. In spite of our problems, imagine a world without #America – it would be a more dangerous and different world. God is using America as an indispensable #power to advance His greater plan and purpose for mankind today, as He did with #Israel back then.
What does this all mean?
Well, everywhere we look we see lies, injustice and inequity out of proportion. We have seen the decaying structure of a strong nation on the verge of collapse after 8 years of disobedience to God in every sin possible. “…they have perverted justice by selling honest people for silver and poor people for a pair of sandals. They trample helpless people in the dust and deny justice to those who are oppressed.” (Amos 2:6-7)
Societal injustice and government’s ambivalence to our needs were draining the life out of the people. Putting our hard earned money into the hands of the government has repeatedly shown that help for the people has not been a priority. Instead, cronyism and collusion, hacked emails of government insiders has exposed a comfortable and cozy ‘insider’s club’ where #elites float between big corporate interests, government, academia, big pharma, and lobbying all the while increasing their own personal net worth exponentially.
These injustices have contributed to a culture of anger and distrust of the ruling class continuously taking advantage of the middle class and the poor. What good is it for a person to gain the world and lose their soul? Yet, the god of this world has decieved many.
This is a time to prayerfully consider and listen to what God said through Amos to Israel and know it is the same message to us today. Without God holding back the storm, we are and would be in a very dangerous place.
God and the Bible is almost invisible in society at large (we can change that now). We have to be outspoken and be light in the darkness among people who are walking in darkness or blinded and cannot see the difference.
So, that is why we must #intercede on behalf of our nation. Ask Him to #forgive us to #embolden us to stir up a passion for #God and HIS ways.
Why?
Because God hears the #prayers of a #righteous person. He is not willing that any should perish (2Peter 3:9) He wants us to stop yielding to sin, and turn our lives around for Him.
Our lives are still safe and comfortable, but it can change in a moment. Right now, God has given us another opportunity.
We stand at a pivotal point in history – it’s time for this nation to #repent with humble and honest prayers, to trust God’s word to keep watch and protect us or else we will fall into deep darkness and the world will disappear into chaos and destruction.
We are one race – the #human race, created by God for God. We are blessed to live in a nation where we have the liberty and freedom that the #Constitution and #BillofRights affords us.
Please share this with your #prayerteams #prayergroups #church #pastors #prayerwarriors #pray #America #Bible #light #repent
Thank you ~ M
