And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. (John 14:3)
. . . blessed are all they that wait for him. (Isaiah 30:18)
And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us; this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation. (Isaiah 25:9)
For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. (Psalm 37:9)
Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. (James 5:8)
And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee. (Psalm 39:7)
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. (Titus 2:13-15)
While meditating on the place of America in the world today and seeing the recent photo of Pres. Biden tripping three times going up the stairs of Air Force One, the thought of America being in a free fall was imprinted on my mind.
America is indeed in a major crisis, but the pandemic and economic downturn are not the main reasons for our concerns. SIN is at the crux or root of America’s problems. This is what the Bible says in James 3:16:
For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. (KJV)
For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder [unrest, rebellion] and every evil thing and morally degrading practice. (Amp Bible)
Jesus said, “Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall.” (Mt 12:25) America is already in FREE FALL whether we want to face the facts or not. Wearing masks and social distancing, even COVID vaccines will not save us and preserve us as a United States of America.
In our Bible class we described SIN as the Selfish Indulgent Nature of humankind. The ‘I’ in S-I-N refers to putting SELF first, SELF INTERESTS and that is the reason for our divided society and nation. America needs to REPENT; all of us need to repent and return to God so that He would heal our land.
God is our only HELPER, KEEPER AND PRESERVOR (Psa 121). Pay close attention to these verses from 2 Chronicles 7:14, 19-22. This prophetic word given by God 3,000 years ago also applies to America today. It was spoken to the great ‘unwise’ King Solomon whose sins led Israel into idolatry and whose kingdom was divided as a result!
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 sins and will heal their land.
But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;
Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.
