To you who believe, then, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, “The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,” and, “A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense.” They stumble because they disobey the message — and to this they were appointed. But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, to proclaim the virtues of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.…’ 1 Peter 2:7-9
America will never change apart from God but America wants no part of God. The evil displayed recently should concern all, considering the perpetrators of the evil are elected officials. Elected re elected officials of the United States government. Elected by the citizenry. Such evil rules in the heart of man. Biblical principles, banned in public schools, have been replaced by LGBT agendas. Murder has become the law of the land. Even though scripture tells us “Bloodshed pollutes the land” America continues to murder thousands daily – blatantly disregarding The holy Word of our Holy God.
Much like the children of Israel, we grumble, complain, find fault, point fingers and gossip but seldom do we fall on our face before God to cry out against such atrocities, seeking His wisdom, His Holy Spirit…..His forgiveness. Daniel’ prayer lost among the pages of a bible that for too long has sat silently atop a dusty bookshelf:
‘Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant of love with those who love Him and keep His commandments, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from Your commands and laws. We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your Name to our kings, (presidents, senators, congressmen and women, governors), our princes and our ancestors, and to all the people of the land…’ Daniel 9
America lies in shambles. Her churches have a form of godliness but His power, His Presence has become a stumbling block rather than a stepping stone. Biblical teachings about sin, righteousness, repentance seldom heard in most churches. Those that teach such see their numbers dwindling as congregants rush to join the masses, embracing the teachings of relevance, prosperity and acceptance of others. Holiness has been replaced with hollowness. The rot of the nation has penetrated the walls of the church; leaving her defenseless and vulnerable to attack.
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. Psalm 2
These words, from the heart of awatchmanonthewall, I will not attribute to my LORD. Perhaps they are only the ramblings of a watchman who has seen too much, knows time is slipping away and grieves that words spoken are falling on deaf ears. Whatever the case….I know with certainty…the church is silent, the country is split and America will not survive if she continues down this very wide road of depravity, tolerance, immorality and rejection of God.
