National Repentance Is the Answer, 11/16/17

America is in trouble because, although we are a nation with a covenant with God, we are a very sinful nation and in great rebellion against God. Only repentance to God and submission to his authority will cure our many national ills. Trump is chosen by God to help but he cannot do it all and open civil war, which will happen if there is not enough repentance, is most definitely not the answer. God loves this nation and wants to restore us to a condition better than we have ever experienced before but he cannot and will not do it until we submit to his ways. He knows what is best and we would do very well to stop arguing with him and defying him. There is some repentance prayer in the nation but not nearly enough. God is judging us out of his loving heart to correct us and show us a better way to live.

Isaiah 26:9 New King James Version (NKJV)
9 With my soul I have desired You in the night,
Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early;
For when Your judgments are in the earth,
The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

He loves and wants to teach us the right way to live and he will continue to judge us mercifully until we repent and do it his way. He is God, we would do very well to yield to his infinitely greater wisdom.

DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT listen to prophets who say that God is not or will not judge America.  Likewise do not listen to prophets who say that God is destroying America. I say it again and point to the scripture above. He IS judging us out of his LOVE for us and desire to correct us and teach us to live right. He is judging us to save us from destroying ourselves completely with our sin. Prophets who tell you we will not or are not being judged hold you back for fully embracing the call to repentance. That is NOT a good prophetic voice. A TRUE PROPHETIC voice calls the people to repentance and back to God when we have gone astray. God loves this nation and wants us to fulfill our great destiny in him. We did not always have to be judged in order to repent, we could have done it voluntarily. But as a nation we have refused that path and insisted on stubborn willful pride, rebellion, idolatry and disobedience. Once we have chosen that path. God HAS to judge us to bring us back to him.

So, America, let's face the truth that we are being judged by God and fear him and understand that it will only get worse if we do not repent. Let's use this as a motivation to repent and turn and seek God with our whole heart. He LOVES America!! This is NOT his wrath. He is not punishing us or annihilating us as he does in wrath. He is judging us to discipline us and get us on track with the good things he has planned for us, in keeping with the scripture we looked at.  Be blessed.
