Warning! Danger Ahead

A word from God's Word: "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD. No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength. A horse [and military might] is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save."1

One of today’s great tragedies is that as a nation, the U.S. is moving farther and farther away from God as more and more we are pushing God out of our society. God certainly is no longer LORD of our nation. In removing God from our society we are removing—or have already removed ourselves—from God’s protection. The question today is not where is God—He is where He has always been—but where are we?

Much of today’s national problems started, or at least were greatly accelerated, when we banned the Bible from public schools. As a student report stated, “In 1963, when the Bible, the Christian’s standard of absolute truth and morality, was banned from the schools, a great ideological shift began. … As the American people soon found out … Sexually transmitted diseases went up 226%. Violent crimes went up 995%. Unwed birth rates went up 325%. Divorce went up 111%. Unmarried couples living together went up 536%. Child abuse went up 2300%, and illegal drug use went up 6000%.... I don’t think that we have seen the end of this, either. Our country will collapse if Christianity is extinguished, and therefore morality is snuffed out.”2

Think too, of the relentless attacks against the U.S. in recent years by radical Muslims whose religion, Islam, declares itself to be a religion of peace and yet we are vividly reminded every year how, “On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States…. Over 3,000 people were killed during the attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., including more than 400 police officers and firefighters.”3

True, not all Muslims are terrorists, but where is the real outcry from moderate Muslims who oppose worldwide terrorism attacks promulgated by Muslim terrorists? According to a report on Wikipedia, there have been numerous Islamic terrorist attacks since 2001. See a partial listing of these online at: http://tinyurl.com/8n7bvsd. It is frightening!

America, we need to awaken! As our moral decline is accelerating, so is our moving father and father away from God and His protection. As George Washington, in his Farewell Address, stated, “And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion… reason and experience forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”

Suggested prayer: “Dear God, please send a great spiritual awakening to the U.S.A. so that our eyes will be open to see the direction this once great Christian nation is heading. Help us to see and face the truth, for only the truth will set us free. And let your work begin in me. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus’ name, amen.”
