The Future Of America and What Can the Righteous Do

This is what the Lord has said:

Obadiah 1:15For the day of the LORD is near upon all the nations: as you have done, it shall be done unto you: your reward shall return upon your own head.
16For as you have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the nations drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had never been.

Now really think about what America has been doing in the world for the past decade or so.  Better yet, force yourself to see America from foreign eyes.  If you lived in Pakistan or Iraq or Afghanistan or any country that has been plundered by the World Bank or the IMF, take a look at America through their eyes.  What would you see?  Does anyone export more war to the world than America?  How about social filth like porn, who produces and distributes more of it to the world than America?  Who does more drone strikes on wedding parties and school children than America?  Tough questions, I know but there is a reason for asking.  How does the Lord view America and what has He said about the nations?

For the day of the LORD is near upon all the nations: as you have done, it shall be done unto you: your reward shall return upon your own head.

It has also been written here that we should not blame our government, corrupt politicians etc for what America is doing.  The common man, the ordinary person is the problem.  Who turns a blind eye to all the evil done in America and has a continual desire for more?  The common person.  Filth and trash on TV and the internet do not sell in a vacuum.  If people were not consuming it, production and distribution would go down to nothing.  Supply and demand.

If the common man were righteous before the Lord and the nation was full of righteous people, would we have such corruption in high places of government?  Would the Lord give us such wicked princes to rule over us?  No.  Not only that but the people would rise up against the wickedness.  It would be so offensive to them they could not tolerate it.  Need more proof?  How about physical and spiritual law.  We all know that light drives out darkness every time instantly without exception.  If darkness is so thick in this nation that you could cut it with a knife, what does that say about the people's light?

Now back to where we started.  America exports more war to the world than any country on earth.  America is Babylon, the hammer of the whole earth

Jer 50:23 How broken and shattered is the hammer of the whole earth! How desolate is Babylon among the nations!

Now think about this.  The Lord is not mocked.  As we sow, so we reap as individuals and as nations.  America has exported war and death, the light of its people is almost extinguished so what will be their reward?  Check the internet articles all over about DHS buying billions and billions of rounds of ammo.  Understand that DHS does not have a foreign mission, their mission is right within the confines of America.  So why would DHS be stocking up on bullets?

For the day of the LORD is near upon all the nations: as you have done, it shall be done unto you: your reward shall return upon your own head.

Nobody became popular by telling the truth.  The Lord sent prophets to Israel and they stoned them and killed them.  The Lord Jesus came telling the truth and they crucified them.  Have people changed?  No, the same truth they did not want to hear back then they do not want to hear right now.

So what, is all hope lost?  No.  In repentance and rest is our salvation

Isa 30:15 This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says: "In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.

There is always a remnant.  Its always a few that are set apart from the crowd that the Lord keeps as the apple of His eye.  Many are called, few are chosen

... "For there are many called, but few chosen." ..

Why are only a few chosen, and why do you never ever EVER hear preachers preach this?  I've never heard it preached once, when I "went to church."  I'll tell you why you do not hear it preached, because people do not want to hear it.   Preach the truth enough and people will leave and when people leave you can't pay the mortgage on your multi-million dollar cathedral to man.  I know this does not apply to all churches but it applies to many if not most.

What does this brother hear the Spirit saying?  Repentance, rest, faith and trust in the Lord our God is where our attention should be.  This is not a new ,message nor is it hard to understand.  We are to walk with our God and trust Him with our wants and needs.  And we are to rest.

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

grace and peace
