Has God lifted His favor from America?

We are living in troubled time not only here in America, but all over the world.  Extremists are killing anyone who doesn’t agree with their beliefs.  Islam is torturing and killing Americans and Christians. Our own people are killing those who serve and protect.  Mothers are killing the unborn.  Those who serve and protect us are being gunned down.  There is self-centeredness and hatred everywhere. 

Some of our churches are watering down the gospel.  They rarely condemn sins like pre-marital sex, abortions, greed, idolatry, and the big one homosexuality.  The Bible is clear on all these subjects.  But we choose to ignore it.  We say times have changed; we need to be tolerant; we think we know best.  We tell ourselves that we are good people and we don’t murder and besides we are not as bad as that other guy.  Many say that all roads lead to God, but Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6.  And - “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Mark 12:31.  We have become more and more tolerant of sin.  Our churches are filled with unconverted people who say they are Christians, but have not fully surrendered to God.

The Bible tells us we are to stand and support Israel and He will bless us.  “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse” Gen. 12:3.  Our own President is no friend to Israel.  Just his lack of commitment toward Israel shows he is not with Israel.  Maybe that is why there is so much unrest in America.  Is God cursing us?

Why is all this happening?  I think it’s because Satan knows his time is running out and he is working extra hard to bring all the darkness he can.  He wants to destroy us and turn us away from God.  The Bible warns us about Satan.  Jesus called him “the prince of this world” and “the father of lies”.  He continually tries to deceive us.  He puts desires and bitterness in our hearts and in many ways it seems he is succeeding.

The unsaved are serving Satan.  Just look at our TV shows and movies.  They are full of adultery, lust, violence, filthy language, murder, and sex.  Pornography is everywhere.  The video games our children are playing are full of violence.  Then we wonder why there are shootings in our schools and killing of our police officers.

Yes, Satan is real.  Satan has tried to destroy God’s relationship with people since the Garden of Eden.   “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” 2 Cor. 4:4.    

What can we do about it?  We need to pray, pray, pray.  We all need Jesus.  Two thousand years ago, Jesus ended the debate on which lives matter.  He died for all.  He died for all races - blacks, brown, yellow, and whites.  He died for Christians and Muslims.  We need to be a united America.  We just need to accept Jesus and repent before it’s too late.  Please pray for the world and for America.
