Read Old Testament Scripture and God tells us what he expects from every nation. Then see how Americans are living and what they believe and it causes one to be concerned. How long will God allow America to deny Him before He does what He promises? The reason I bring this to your attention is there is one thing we could do to change everything and that is to have a Christian revival. First, let’s read what God said to the nation of Israel:

Ezekiel 7:4–9 – “I will turn my eyes away and show no pity. I will repay you for all your detestable sins.
Then you will know that I am the LORD. “This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Disaster after disaster
is coming your way! The end has come. It has finally arrived. Your final doom is waiting! O people of Israel, the day of your destruction is dawning. The time has come; the day of trouble is near. Shouts of anguish will be heard on the mountains, not shouts of joy. Soon I will pour out my fury on you and unleash my anger against you. I will call you to account for all your detestable sins. I will turn my eyes away and show no pity. I will repay you for all your detestable sins. Then you will know that it is I, the LORD, who is striking the blow.” (NLT)

As you study the Bible’s Old Testament, what He was telling the Israelites He was telling the other nations. Do you believe He did not have America, in mind, when He made these same demands? If you continue to commit detestable sins and deny God, there will be punishment. In the past fifty years our Supreme Court and our many political leaders have denied God’s existence.

Study history and you will find that many nations have been completely destroyed because of their denial of God and the committing of detestable sins. However, a number of times, Israel, as a nation, repented of their sins and worshipped God and prospered. America could do the same. However, it would require different political leaders. We need to discontinue political correctness and get back to having religious freedom. We need born-again pastors to preach the Bible and teach the gospel. We also need people who call themselves Christians live according to God’s ways and Jesus’ teaching. We need to bring back the teaching of living by the ‘GOLDEN RULE’. It can be done, because it was that way when I was a child.

In case you may have never heard of the Golden Rule, it is located in Matthew 22:37–39 – “Jesus replied, ‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”

How do people treat their neighbors now? What percent are living the Golden Rule? I am concerned that if America does not repent and accept Christ as their Savior, we may be headed for God’s punishment. Has the average American been prosperous these past few years? Is America losing it leadership position in the world? Are we headed in the right direction as a nation?

I spent four years in the Navy and hate seeing where we are headed as a nation, defensively.
