All thine enemies have opened their mouth against thee: they hiss and gnash the teeth: they say, We have swallowed her up: certainly this is the day that we looked for; we have found, we have seen it. The LORD hath done that which He had devised; He hath fulfilled His Word that He had commanded in the days of old: He hath thrown down, and hath not pitied: and He hath caused thine enemy to rejoice over thee, He hath set up the horn of thine adversaries. (Lamentations 2:16-17)
That peace and comfort we may find, will not last forever for those that as a people, or nation continue to ignore GOD and His Word. Those that deny He exists, or live like He isn't there will soon find out that He purges even His Church. They may find their denomination, or building coming down in shame because of their continued disobedience. We may even find that our country is experiencing the wrath of GOD, or at least He is giving us exactly what we asked for and pulling His hand of protection back from us so our enemies can destroy us, just as He did with Jerusalem and Judah. The Church, nor the USA replaces Israel in the Bible, but GOD does set up and tear down the nations, and our country may be getting its just reward, as well as the congregations within it that have denied and ignored GOD and His word. The people of GOD have gone too long trying to fix spiritual problems with social and physical answers, and we are now less effective than we should be in the political and social realms. Only the Gospel of Jesus Christ can solve our situation.
IF you don't know Jesus Christ by Faith in His finished work on the Cross, I invite you to receive Him today. He is not willing that you should perish, but does insist that you must be born again, and have a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship in Him that is abundant and everlasting. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and become a child of GOD today.
If you are one of His, be obedient to His Word, and do His work.
