This Is An Emergency…

Life is meant to be cherished, a gift from God, to honor, praise and glorify God; yet there are very few who understand this. Man's troubles began some 6,000 years ago with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden eating from the tree of “Knowledge of Good and Evil.” God, himself shed the blood of an innocent animal to atone for their sin; however this was only a temporary solution, the blood of an innocent animal can not atone for the sins of man.
To the woman he said, "I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you." To Adam he said, "Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat of it,' "Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return." Genesis 3:16-19.
For this sin, God also drove them out from the Garden of Eden. Years later, not understanding the sovereignty of the all seeing and all knowing God; full of anger, greed, and maybe pride; Cain killed his brother Abel, thus, man was firmly set on a path of destruction.
Man continues even today on the very same path of destruction, for his lack of knowledge of the sovereignty of God has followed man throughout all generations even though we have God's written Word to reveal the truth to us, man still trust in his own beliefs rather than the God of all Creation.
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
John 3:18-20
Our forefathers, guided by God’s Word, added a statement of faith in the One True God, within every document or speech in the formation of this government of these United States of America; and each of the individual states did likewise. Yet, today there are many through their ignorance that they would deny that fact. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. Ephesians 4:18
We know that the truth is in the Word of God, so if those who would speak against the Word of God, they would be but godless men or women, full of lies, with wicked and deceitful hearts. (Jeremiah17:9) Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." Matthew 22:38-40

The Great Commission of the gospel specifies that all Christians that have a faithful commitment to Jesus Christ are to: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I (Jesus) have commanded you. And surely I (Jesus) am with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28:19-20). Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6), "All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. Matt. 11:27 John the Baptist speaking of Jesus said, "The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world. John 1:9
Christians do not go around saying Christianity is the only way because we are arrogant, stupid or judgmental; we do so because, based on the evidence, we not only believe, but we know that JESUS is the only way.
Now a Christian nation is obligated to conduct its affairs as would a godly Christian man; however, we know the leadership in America has not promoted Christian morals, thus seen clearly in their godless actions pertaining to abortion and homosexuality, not to mention its trade sanctions and embargoes against many of the third world nations. More godless leaders’ action can also be learned through a goggle search on Tax History.
God has not made America to be the judge and enforcer over all nations, but to be a loving teacher by an example, revealing Christ like character not only with our own non-Christian citizens but with all other nations.
America churches and institutions have sent thousands of pastors, missionaries, and evangelists to all nations spreading the goods news of Christ Jesus.
Now if America's leaders loved her neighbors as they do themselves, would not their actions prove this? Our leaders’ actions, however in the past 80 or 90 years have been to be the one to dictate to the other nations as to how America felt they should conduct their polices and rule over their population and this is not Christ like behavior for a true Christian nation.
Most Americans and most of our leaders have failed to understand that spiritual failings inevitably lead to the loss of God’s blessings.

In 1991 through 1992 I read through the Bible twice and I begin to have a better understanding of God. In 2000 I began to write down what God had given me in visions and spoken messages in my life; and now at 60 years of age and on my twelfth trip of reading through the Bible I realize that it is not all about me being happy and fulfilling my own desires in this life, but it is all about seeking God’s desires for my life, displaying Christ like love and character, it is about me worshipping Him for His sacrifice and receiving the gift of life given me through Christ Jesus. while sharing the Gospel and His love and being a blessing to others.
The amazing God Who is perfect in love and wisdom must bring to the nation of America a perfect judgment that brings punishment upon the evildoers and blessings on all who would repent and turn back to Him. The Lord disciplines those He loves, and He punishes everyone He accepts as a son. Heb. 12:6 He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. Proverbs 13:24
The Bible proves God did not spare His chosen people. The Israelites were once blessed with wealth and prestige above all nations, but they saw themselves as being deserving of this and eventually the Israelites gave into the evils of the worldly desires of their hearts.
Though He brings grief, He will show compassion, so great is His unfailing love. Lamentations 3:32 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live! Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in His holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:7-11

This Is An Emergency…
America has forgotten her Creator, she has cherished her treasures rather than the one who had made her great. Many of us have seen our sins and the sins of this nation and we are in bitter anguish, knowing that His judgment will be great and perfect in every way, and the world will rejoice, not understanding that their joy over America’s destruction will be eventually followed with His final judgments upon all that is evil in this age.

As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; Psalm 103:13

Then the King will say to those on His right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited Me in, I needed clothes and you clothed Me, I was sick and you looked after Me, I was in prison and you came to visit Me.'
"Then He will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave Me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite Me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe Me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after Me.'
"Then they (Who have not accepted Christ) will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.
Matthew 25:46

For several years we saw the acronym WWJD, meaning “What Would Jesus Do?” I am now asking, “What are YOU going to do for your neighbors and more importantly, what are YOU going to do for Christ, before it is too late?”
