The good news is that God is going to save America from destruction. Also, the bad news is that God is going to save America from destruction.
How can the news that God is going to save America be bad news? You’d better be sitting down when you hear the answer.i
This all began when I was overcome and blurted out a question to God. Will America be destroyed!?
I was aware that I might be breaking the rules by even asking. It was like asking a wife if she forgives the husband who is still with the other woman, with no sign that he will ever repent, or return.
This is not what we should be doing. I had no business doing it. Instead, I should have been repenting on behalf of America. We should all be praying and fasting like Daniel did when he said:
“As it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us; yet we have not made our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities and understand Your truth. Therefore, the Lord has kept the disaster in mind and brought it upon us; for the Lord our God is righteous in all the works which He does, though we have not obeyed His voice. And now, O Lord our God, who brought Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and made Yourself a name, as it is this day—we have sinned, we have done wickedly!” (Daniel 9:13-15).
Note that even though Daniel knew he was innocent of these heinous crimes, he interceded for his nation. And God heard him over the vast and loud wickedness of Israel. That is stunning!
The promise in James 5:16 is true, “…the effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
Nevertheless, I gave in to the temptation to ask God if America would be destroyed. As soon as I did, I knew I had no right to an answer. BUT I GOT ONE ANYWAY, AND THE ANSWER SHOCKED ME!
The answer is the terrifying things God will allow to happen to bring us to repentance. Just because it is not destruction, does not mean it will not be painful. Think about the implications―it means that calamities will come to whatever extent God decides is necessary for the survival of the nation.
Please read these key points.
1. His calamities will begin at the house of God. 1 Peter 4:17, “For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?”
To keep America from being destroyed, the Lord is willing to uproot the churches that have been built by human marketing. He is willing to rain down judgment on ministries that have perverted His purposes for the Church. Those who have led the sheep of God into false doctrines and false goals. He is willing to drag their secret sins out into public shame. He could strike them down, even while they are standing in the pulpit, if the only alternative is the death of America.
The day can come where it is said that flashy, fleshly preachers were repeatedly warned–but now it is too late.
Words cannot fully express the enormity of the season we are in right now. It’s what I like to say is, “the best of times, and the worst of times, at the same time.” As we look at what’s happening from a spiritual standpoint, it is clearly a battle of light versus...
