America will not be judged…

Posted: September 10, 2021 in Shared Thoughts
May be an image of text that says 'America will notbe be judged. America is under judgment right now.'

What is happening in America, even across the whole world, will not be stopped through the legal system of men, nor prevented by the morals of men, nor by the unity of some men, nor will the righteous prevail through the wisdom or weapons of men. Men must look to and be reconciled to God.

The Bible clearly shows over and over that God has used the undeniably wicked to chastise His own because of their unfaithfulness, that they might repent and be saved, while the wicked and rebellious perish. Furthermore, God has given no rights to those who are unfaithful, nothing to those who refuse to maintain their responsibility to love God with all their heart, soul, and might: nothing to those who choose to ignore and fail to keep His Commandments. Nevertheless, God has pity humanity’s desperate state, and because He is love He has afforded us a Savoir in Jesus Christ, and therefore has commanded all men to repent.

But rights, as everyone perceives them, are but gifts of God given unto those who respond properly to God. Adam only had a right to eat of every tree in the Garden of Eden, except one, because he was given responsibilities by God, “Tend to My garden.” While Adam was responsible, he had a right to eat. But upon his willful disobedience, that right was taken away and he was cast out.

To claim you have rights and yet reject God’s commandments is to be contentious and disobedient to God. What right have you then to any of His blessings? Jesus Himself tells us, “Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are the dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”

Judgment is a process.

It begins with many warnings, and comes to place where upon failing to be heeded, a shaking of everything that can be shaken takes place. Then, what was done in darkness is brought out to light, and what was said in secret begins to be shouted from the rooftops.

This God does so that, by seeing the deceitfulness of sin, men might learn to hate sin, and might abhor it, turn from it, and consequently yearn for righteousness and seek His face. God does this that men might repent. But repentance is not turning from bad ways, rather a total returning unto God. The first can be done partially without the latter, but not the latter without the first.

So, know this, judgment always precedes the mercy and grace which reconciles men to God; so that mercy might rejoice against judgment. But without our acknowledging the righteous judgment of God, there is a danger of God having judgment without mercy. Therefore, without true repentance, America will simply continue in its present judgment and ultimately come to the dreaded time when it will have to drink the full cup of God’s wrath.

But know this, “Judgment must begin in the House of God,” and we, God’s people in America, are currently in this stage of God’s judgment.

Therefore, I ask you, are you seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness? Or are you angry over the abuse and loss of your perceived rights and prosperity? Are you ignorant of, or have you forgotten, that God has said, “Behold, ALL the nations…” including America, “are like a drop in a bucket, and are counted as the small dust  when weighed in the scales; behold, He takes up the coastlands as a very little thing.”

As judgment draws towards its conclusion, Jesus warns that the time also is advancing quickly when “he that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. For behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”

Live for the King, it’ll make it easier to die for Him.
