Now the Unites States is in decline for abandoning God's laws that made us great. I don’t have to go into great detail here because I have spoken of this before and the warnings are clearly outlined in God’s word. God’s word warns us that in the last days the law would become so perverted that the things that were once considered evil will be called good and the things once considered good will be called evil, and that is exactly where we are today. As a majority this generation has abandoned God and just as predicted men and woman have become lovers of self rather then lovers of God. Not only do we not speak out against evil but we condone it and believe me it has not gone unnoticed by God. But God is faithful not only in blessing those that love him, but also God is faithful to carry out punishment and judgment on those individuals and nations that have abandoned him. As a nation we have lost our salt and now lead the world with the largest population of criminals, the highest crime rates, the highest abortion rates, suicide rates, murder rate, divorce, greed and extortion. More recently we are abandoning the principals of same sex marriage and consider many forms of open sexual perversion normal and healthy and the list grows broader everyday. For all of our evil God is bringing real time judgment upon us, our nation and the world to provide us an opportunity to humble ourselves and repent and turn back to Jesus Christ. Not only for the salvation of our souls but our nation. So that rather then condoning the words, actions and votes of evil, we will be converted by his grace and once again stand up against all evil lovingly, taking our nation back that our grandparents and ancestors prayed and worked so hard to preserve.
The separation of church and state have absolutely nothing to do with every Christian duty and obligation to render to the nation, government, lawmaker, and employer, the principals of God’s law and the gospel of righteousness. We are not voting for people but issues and not to serve our own greed but the righteousness of God. Most of us still try and teach our children the principals of Gods law yet we ourselves have very little use for them anymore:
“I am the Lord your God, “You must not have any other god but me.
“You must not make for yourself an idol of any kind. You must not worship them, for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God who will not tolerate your affection for any other gods. I lay the sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected—even children in the third and fourth generations of those who reject me. But I lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love me and obey my commands.
“You must not misuse the name of the Lord your God. The Lord will not let you go unpunished if you misuse his name.
“Remember to observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. This includes you, your sons and daughters.
“Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
“You must not murder.
“You must not commit adultery.
“You must not steal.
“You must not testify falsely against your neighbor.
“You must not covet your neighbor’s house. You must not covet your neighbor’s wife, male or female servant, ox or donkey, or anything else that belongs to your neighbor.”
“The most important commandment in the law of Moses?” Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
Without a relationship with Jesus Christ it is impossible for us to do what is right in God’s sight and we become blind with sin. The consequences of this is death not only for the nation but for us as individuals as well. And don’t think for a moment that God is not going to judge us for voting to condone evil in in exchange for personal prosperity. So remember voting is not about a political party or an individual candidate, its about the issues of right and wrong in accordance with God’s law.
For those that believe God is wrong and that its OK to vote for the continued proliferation of such evil as abortion, same sex marriage exc, exc, for the sake of personal gain and prosperity, all I can say is that God unlike man will keeps his promises and give you your appointed judgment day. He will be the one on the thrown you will need to convince as your eternal life will depend on it.
So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their heartsdesired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with eachother’s bodies. Theytraded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served thethings God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy ofeternal praise! Amen. Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them totheir foolish thinking and let them do things that should never bedone. Their lives becamefull of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder,quarreling, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. (Romans 1:24-29)
Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter theKingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father inheaven will enter. Onjudgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in yourname and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles inyour name.’ But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’(Matthew 7:21-23)
“Then the King will turn to those on the left and say, ‘Away with you,you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and hisdemons.(Matthew 25:41)
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who areblessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from thecreation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’(Matthew 25:34-36)
So as born again Christians we have the Holy Spirit of God living inside us so we have no fear of loss or death, because Christ's has set us free from bondage. And although we can only imagine what it will be like to be in heaven stand before Christ, we have confidence through the Holy Spirit, not fear that the world has to stand before God. The band "Mercy Me" describes this in their song "I can only Imagine"
(1 John 4:17-18) As we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So true Christians will notbe afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidencebecause we live like Jesus here in this world. Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we areafraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not experienced God's perfect love.
