When we consider all that has taken place in the United States, natural desasters, killings at schools and movie complexes, the financial melt  down, Katrina and Sandy.  Are these things really the result of global warming, mental illness, or the result of a nation who has forgotten its God?

As a nation we have attempted with much success to remove the God of heaven out of our public assembly, to remove His commandments from before our eyes, and taken prayer out of schools.  Yet, we give freedom to every other religion, but the name of Jesus we desire to stamp out with all diligence.

Could it be that with all the due diligence to prove there is no God, we have actually extablished His exsistance through the effort being put into stamping Him out?  True, it is only in our public places we desire to have Him excommunicated, but public drinking, rioting, and sexual immorality is supported.  Even the legalizing of marijuana and gay marriage is supported, but God; lets get rid of Him all cost.

Can a nation truly expect to be blessed and not have the God of heaven on its side?  Can she really expect to worship money and gain at all cost without some ramification?  It is written: “But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day”  (Deut. 8:19).  Okay, so this scripture reference was spoken to Israel, but God is the God of all nations, whither they acknowledge Him as God or not.

How can we not see that it is our wickedness which has separated us fron God?  There is one other nation which has gone the way of America; Rome.

When we begin to support and make provision for the things which God hates, and nature its self denies, how can we not expect adverse situations to appear?

And you so-called children of the most high God, expect that you will excape the judgment of God?  For you have removed the old landmarks which your forefathers have set.  You have compromised the gospel in order to receive assistance from the government.  Do they not oppress you to be quiet about the injustice and sin being perpatrated by our politicians and men in office?  Do they not command you to turn a blind eye to the ungodly laws they pass to support gay marriage?  Think you that God and Jesus Christ supports you in denying His word for fast cash?

Has not God said: “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins” (Isaiah 58:1).  Will you keep quiet of the sins of this nation to fill your bank account with the dishonest gain of a government which denies God, and expect God to approve you in this?  When has God needed the help of an unjust nation to support His work?

This nation has made money its God, for it is the only place where “In God We Trust” is still stamped, and you through your silence has supported them in this.

When a people forgets their God for filthy lucre, will God not judge His people for this? For it is written: “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon (money)” (Matthew 6:24).  You cannot compromise the gospel in order to keep the government’s tax status, and not expect ramifications.

Will a nation forget God and not see judgment?  Katrina and Sandy were not the express result of global warming, but judgment for a people who have forgotten their God.  The financial crisis was the result of filthy and dishonest business practices which led to judgment. 

Yet for many who will continue their ungodly ways, this small post will be seen as a joke, something to ridicule, rather than a warning.  A nation cannot forget its God and go unpunished.

And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.

If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chron. 7:12-14).
