I find myself today praying for the state of our nation,
the presidential change over, and the international economic crises. My heart is continuously heavy with the uncertainty that
America will bend her knees and seek repentance for her abominations. If she continues her course, she will have to pay for
the sin she has harbored and condoned.
We are only
looking at the beginning of the economic crises to hit America; much more is still to come. It only takes a few minutes of
listening to top economists and various blue chip corporation CEOs to get a feel for what is truly in store for 2009. Many
have warned of this day, David Wilkerson is one, he warned of this day in his book The Vision, I really recommend reading
this truly God inspired book. It is surreal as you read the pages written in 1974 to only realize that you and I are currently
living these very warnings that you read on the pages of this book.
The Lord has always had watchmen, or prophets for every generation, watching and warning society to change
course or prepare for the consequence of sin. Our nation has been warned for a long time to turn away from her current path
to destruction, but she has not yielded, only pushed the petal past the floorboard.
In past commentaries I have pointed out the idol of materialism and greed here in America. This is
just one of the few that have position themselves as false gods within our society. Compare the shedding of innocent blood,
lust, homosexuality, and blatant disregard for God (Elohay Elohim) and His righteous morals with the societies that have risen
and within a spell fallen because one if not all of these life devouring, society damning abominations became the blood/sin
craving anti-gods feeding the insatiable desire to void man's soul from the eternal joy and freedom the only true God longs
for every man to acquire. All of these sins have come though a pompous pride deceitfully blinding man to the truth we are
accountable to God and God alone. Somewhere as a nation we have left this truth and now accountability has been replaced with
an anything goes mentality, a society obsessed with binge sinning.
This continual disregard for God, continual disregard for His divine morals, and the continual flagrant disregard
for the warnings of national repentance gone unheeded comes with a society destroying price tag, a debt that can only be written
off through heart-felt repentance. America is playing with fire, an all consuming fire, the Creator of fire and the very elements
that it consumes, if this disregard for the chance to correct our stance with God goes overlooked once again, we will get
Too long America has listened to the
false prophets of prosperity doctrine, to long America has listened not to the warnings of God's watchmen, to long we as a
nation we have been deceived by our own comforts and riches, face it even America's poorest on average are 10x better off
than 6 billion of our worldly neighbors. We have been led astray, we have relied on our comforts instead of the one true Comforter.
Then said I, Ah, Lord God!
Behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you assured
peace in this place. Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name; I sent them not, neither have I commanded
them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination (Pagan fortune-telling), and of worthless
things, and the deceit of their heart. Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and
I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.
Please seek the Lord
our God and be not deceived by the false prophets who speak of peace and prosperity, these days have come and gone because
of the nations disinterest with rightly giving praise for the hand that poured out these great blessings. We have instead
turned these blessings into a man made event and history has shown man without God is sure to fail.
We are not left without options as we enter into 2009. We are left with the same options that man
has had since time began, God or man. Which option will you choose, which option will you share with your friend or family
members, which option will you let your faith reside. Every second lost is one second closer to judgment or for some redemption.
Choose this day who you will serve.
