Why Are These Things Happening To Us?

Why is everything happening recently taking place? Psalm 9:16-17 says, “The Lord is known by the judgment which he executeth…The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”  It is plain to see that the judgments of God are upon our country (see Deuteronomy 28; 14 blessings and 54 curses), and that He is walking contrary to us because we are walking contrary to Him.

Amos 3:3 asks the question, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”  The answer is, NO!  Imagine a father who has a son who will not listen to him even though he has given his son everything.  Will he continue to bless him?  No, he will discipline him to bring about change because he loves his son.  “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent” (Revelation 3:19).  God is chastening our nation to bring us to our knees before Him!  That we may “Come and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up” (Hosea 6:1).

God has given us everything: the life we live, family, food, friends, the air we breathe, the country we live in, and most importantly His Son, who paid the penalty for our sins.  Christ is, and must be, the foundation of every blessing our society can hope to enjoy.  Little as you might think it, Christ has everything to do with our liberty, our happiness, and our comfort.  America would not be what it is today if it had not been for Christ; and in that hour when America forsakes her God, her glory will be lost and she will have lost her true liberty and defense.  We are on the verge of that very hour even as we speak.

In our prosperity, we have turned against the very One who gave us these things, and we will be destroyed unless we turn from our wicked ways.  You might ask, “What can I do?  I’m only one person.”  The fact of the matter is, it’s your sin that has offended God and “…the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience…” (Colossians 3:6).  Unless you repent before God and flee to Christ first, you will not be able to do anything to stop the wrath of God upon you and this country.  God promised in 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”  You have to realize that you will give an account before God for your actions and “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Hebrews 10:31).

It’s time for everyone in this country to return to God and engage in His battles to take back the land that was entrusted to us.  Remember this—in the day when the Gospel shall be silenced, when our ministers cease to preach, and when the Bible shall be chained; in that day—God forbid it should ever come to pass—in that day, America may write herself among the dead, for she has fallen, since God has forsaken her, seeing she has cast off her allegiance to Him.

Christian men and women, in this fight for right you are fighting for your nation, for your liberties, your happiness, and your peace; for unless Christ and His commandments are maintained, these will most certainly be destroyed.  If you refuse to do your duty before God, and shun your responsibility by not returning to Him and refuse to stand for His truth, “Prepare to meet thy God!”  It says in 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9, “…the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels.  In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power…”

It's time to turn back to the One who gave us this blessed nation.  Bless God America, for He has already blessed us!  The ball is in our court now...
