I truly believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that I still live in, and am a citizen of, the greatest nation on the face of the earth. I grant you that she has been tossed and torn and tarnished at times, but the wave of Old Glory still strikes a throb deep within my heart and the Good Ol’ USA still offers the greatest living conditions of any nation. We have truly been blessed. It saddens my heart that the guardians of freedom, some of our finest young men, are disgraced by our citizens. The blood shed by our fallen heroes is scoffed at by so called “religious” institutions. I LOVE AMERICA! However, my love for my country cannot dimmen my eyes as to the condition of this “One Nation Under God”. It is time to face reality.
Reality is that Satan has attacked us as a nation and has been far more successful than any other nation. Stalin, Hitler, and Mussolini combined cannot compare to the cunning work, the evil heart, and the wicked agenda of the wicked one called the Devil. Satan has his sights set on this God blessed nation, and she is falling fast.
Reality is that on average in America, 88,000 people die in a year from Alcohol related deaths. The average American drinks approximately 546 “drinks” a year. Alcohol is flowing freely in our nation and we are paying for it. Lives are being ruined because of Budweiser and company who are running this nation straight into the ground. Families are being separated because of the brewing companies who pump out the poison that ruins the liver and destroys relationships.
Reality is that in America from 1970 to 2012 a time period of 42 years, approx. 51,923,070 defenseless people were killed under the knife of an abortion doctor at the consent of their mothers and with the legal blessing of their nation. These would be citizens of our country were betrayed by their country in mass. No American or group of Americans have ever been so rejected as the unborn whose blood cries out from every Planned Parenthood Clinic in this nation.
Reality is that the divorce rate in this nation is up to anywhere from 40% - 50%. The only reason it is that low is because fornication runs rampant. Societies brag that the divorce rate is falling, but they neglect to note that the marriage rate is also falling. Statistics show that 4 out of 10 children are born of unwed parents. Homes are being sabotaged by instability and lustful thoughts generated by Playboy and Sports Illustrated magazine. The two aforementioned publications of filth are fast becoming one of the same. You may ask what I have against sports? I have nothing against sports, but rather the scanty clad females between the sports stories that stir up the lustful passions of a man and breed discontentment with the wife God has given him. It is ruining our homes, it is destroying our nation.
Reality is that it will soon be just common to see a man kiss a man as seeing a man kiss a woman in this country. Sodomy is a wicked idea that is being forced to the forefront of our minds rather than to the back of the closet where it belongs. Soon making statements as the sentence you just read will be illegal under the classification of a hate crime. Already those who feel as I concerning the act of Sodomy are considered to be bigoted and hateful. The sickest most unnatural crime against humanity is not only permitted by our laws but also endorsed by the highest court of our nation.
Reality is that God is being removed from our society. In 1963 prayer was banned in our public school system. The result of this ban is that no teacher has the right to lead their class in prayer before beginning the day., if they teach in a public school. The Bible is no longer an accepted Text Book for our children. Prayer has been replaced by Yoga, Islamic Chants, and Humanistic reasoning. The Bible has been replaced with “Heather Has Two Mommies” and other literature that deaden the mind to moral purity. Is it any wonder then that recent studies show that in one year alone there were over 273,000 births to teenage mothers. Is it any wonder that our public high schools now have to include daycare while sophomore mothers have to skip geometry class to tend to their little ones needs. This is the reality of the state of young America. We are losing our children to Satan and to this world! We are losing America as a whole.
Yet, there is one more reality that we must face. This reality is that there is still a God in Heaven. I believe God still loves America. I believe in the power of God. I believe in the power of prayer. I believe in the power of the Word. The God we serve is a big God, and He has never weakened. The God we serve is the same God who stuck conviction in the hearts of men while Jonathan Edwards read his famed sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”. He is the same God to whom George Washington prayed as he lead the ragged Patriots to victory over the British Empire. This is reality.
Now is not the time for the faint of heart who denounce our nation and dwell on the gloom of her demise, but rather it is a time for the Men of God to prove the power of God. We need preachers who believe we can still have a revival. We need men who will pray for their nation and work to raise their families in the admonition of the Lord. In truth our nation is in the depths of depravity, but revival is a reality for our nation if we will stand strong and believe in our God.
“Give me 100 preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God; such alone will shake the gates of hell.” -John Wesley
