There has never been a country more blessed than America, with the possible exception of Israel.
God has been good to America, but America has not been good to God.
Could it be that God is tired, and that the only thing that is holding America together is the weak prayers of the saints?
Parts of America — including Texas, the Gulf Coast, Florida, Puerto Rico, and U.S. territories in the Caribbean — have barely survived Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Maria. Now wildfires in California are leaving more death and devastation than at any time in recent memory.
Add that to the underground supervolcano in Yellowstone National Park that scientists say could erupt at any time causing half of America to go up in flames, as well as the San Andreas fault in California which geologists say is long overdue for a major earthquake.
The last decade has been marked by out-of-the-ordinary tornado outbreaks, Hurricane Sandy, Hurricane Irene, and devastating wildfires. At one point, former President Obama had declared major disasters in 42 of 50 states.
Sometimes it seems as if we are hanging on by a thread — and by the grace of God.
North Korea is continuing with its threats and missile tests, and now is capable of striking as far inland as Chicago, according to some reports, and possibly New York City, according to others. And, by the way, President Trump needs to understand that if he hits North Korea, he needs to be prepared to hit Russia, Iran, and China.
Through these disasters, it seems as though God is trying to get the attention of the Church to return to is original mission of prayer and evangelism because that is the only thing that will change the hearts of people in America and spare us further devastation.
Psalm 33:12 says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”
Speaking through his prophet, God delivered a message to all nations in Isaiah 66: “I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not… Behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by his sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many.”
