Is America Losing Its Faith in God?

Is there a place where the workers of iniquity can hide from God? Is there no place where mankind, turning away from God, can go to worship strange gods and not be seen? Is a nation that goes after gods of the idolaters justified before the Lord?

I wish to para-phrase the words of Hosea in, Hosea 5:7 ; “They have dealt treacherously against the Lord: for they have begotten strange children: now shall a month devour them with their portions. ” To wit this nation has begotten strange children, children of idol worship, strange gods that abhor the living God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, the God of our forefathers that established this nation on the strict principles that Jesus is Both Lord and Christ. Has this Nation dealt treacherously against the Lord, by allowing these strange children of idols, to grow and prosper in a nation of freedom?

We have seen in the past, when at war, people of certain backgrounds and nations of origin, being rounded up and put in camps. We being afraid that these people were also the enemy that we were fighting. We segregated these people, hated these people and, despised their nations of origin, because of what they desired to do. Has this nation forgotten all that it has learned over the past 100 years? We used to call, the Indians, and then King George, the anti-Christ, we were a nation that was in Love with The Living God, and also feared Him the most. Has this nation dealt treacherously against the Lord, not standing up and declaring that, He is the God of Our Nation, or are we afraid to make sound statements to all because we fear reprisals and ridicule from the rest of the world?

Who are we afraid of, lawyers, judges, principality's, powers, Kings, Priest? Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. There are no, lawyers, judges, principality's, powers, Kings, or Priest, that exist that are not ordained by God. All these powers exist at the will of God. Do you not believe that God can give power and also can take it away? Why have we, as a nation, been able to exist with so many enemies for so long? Because we had God on our side, who has protected us. We were the light of the world to the gentile race of people, we preached the Gospel and proclaimed God as our Leader, Lord and our Sovereign God.

We once guarded our shores against the enemy of freedom but have we made a pact with the devil and allowed him to set up palaces of Gold and Silver in our heart land?

We must leave the wheat and the chaff grow together, for God will separate them in the end. But where is our National pride, where is our National Prominence among the world, where has our devotion to the living God gone?

Does not each leader that comes from other nations, seek only after the wealth of this nation? Do they come to hear about our fear of God, or do they come with their hands out? What Happened to One Nation under God?

In Matthew 21:43 we see that what was taken away from Israel, for a time, was given to us. “Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. ” Have we allowed these worshipers of strange and false gods to pervert this nation? Have we allowed Satan to come in freely and make up laws, transgressing the true laws, changing the ordinances, and breaking the everlasting covenant that was handed down to us by God?

Isa 24:5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. 2Ki 17:29 Howbeit every nation made gods of their own, and put them in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had made, every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt. There is a separation between the physical and the spiritual.

Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

We all have the knowledge of Gods word, we cannot be so blind as to believe that all religions can come together and be as one. For the light hates the darkness, and Idols have no place in the House of God. Are we to close a blind eye to history? Are we to forget what happened to, Babylon, Rome, Berlin and Moscow, and the latest Baghdad, with all their false gods and idols, did they not all fall? The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, He makes us to stand and also can allow us to fall.

2Co 6:14-18; Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. We do not go to arms nor do we fight the flesh. Our fight is with the spirit of anti-Christ. Our weapons are not of this world but of a world beyond measure. Our weapons are fashioned by God, The Armor of Faith, Salvation and Truth.

Eze 12:28 Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord GOD.

Psa 33:12-15; Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works. Bible prophecy is coming to pass, we as a Nation must continue to stand upon the truth of the Gospel. We must declare to all that we are a nation that believe and trust in only one God threw His Son, Jesus Christ. Ars.
