There are two things I see taking place in our nation right now. We are seeing a "leanness in the souls of people" and a “reprobate mind". Here’s what the scriptures tell us about symptoms of a nation moving away from God. "And He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul” (Ps 106:15).
God also spoke of the moral erosion of society and the consequences. "Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers..." (Romans 1:27).
When a people removes God from their nation, God turns them over to their own devices. He removes their ability to use common sense. They lack wisdom in their decisions. Truly we are seeing this among government and city leaders.
God allows people to reap what they sow. When a people allows sexual perversion to take root and celebrate it, God turns them over to a reprobate mind. When they call what is evil good and good evil, God hears and sees their sin and allows them to reap what they sow. God sees a nation that changes its laws from marriage between male and female and creates a false marriage covenant between same-sex as law of the land.
Lawlessness is another sign of a people who are moving away from righteousness. When have you ever seen Americans simply decide law and order has no value to them? It began with immigration, then spread to sanctuary cities, now it’s removing law and order to protect businesses. Next it will be your neighborhoods if we do not stand in the gap for our nation.
Proverbs 28:4 says "Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, but such as keep the law contend with them."
Ezekiel 22:30 calls God’s people to stand in the gap so that He might not have to destroy it. Now is time to call all believers to stand in the gap for our beloved nation. We need leadership. But more than that we need moral leaders who don’t cave to the mobs. Our founding father’s fought for freedoms we have taken for granted. It cost them dearly.
I urge you to not allow your community to lay down and let the socialization mob and the anti-God minority dictate what you should believe or compromise. America isn’t perfect, but all you have to do is travel to another country to find out how good America is. I’ve been to 26 countries around the world.
God has blessed America so much that unless you have not been outside the US, you cannot appreciate what He has bestowed upon us. It’s right to bring attention to areas that need attention. We cannot tolerate injustice to those who suffer under corrupted leadership.
We are seeing unprecedented lawlessness in our nation. Leaders are removing the protection that citizens are entitled to under our constitution. The consequence of these decisions will be seen in dramatic ways as the days unfold. "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter" (Isa 5:20).
Empires last, on average, 222 years. America is in its 244th year. We are in the final stage of civilization which is called Late Decadence. No nation which achieved Superpower (Empire) status in the history of the world has ever recovered from Late Decadence and has always gone on to Collapse. This includes the three Christianized Empires before us (Rome, Mongolia, Britain).
- Transgender acceptance = Final sign before imminent collapse (according to Dr. Camille Paglia, Sexual Personnae).
- After Late Decadence – Societal collapse and anarchy
- Unipolar global Liberal Democratic World Order and stability is lost
- Global Christianity will contract as it always has throughout history
Empires fall in a single day. This is called a cascading failure as one system after another collapses in succession. We’re seeing the fires of anarchy in the streets today! It literally could happen at any time but for the Grace of God. America needs an Awakening & Revival to stop America’s Unipolar and Civilizational Collapse.
Pray that God has mercy on our nation that is deserving of judgment (2 Chron 7:14).
