I once wrote a song called “Day Turned to Night” in which the lyrics went like this:
Day has turned to night
What was wrong is now viewed right
And darkness tries to hide
Claiming victims in the night
That is such a true statement of what is going on in our society today. Judgment has been turned backwards and truth has fallen in the streets, as the Bible says in Isaiah 59:14 and the Lord said in Jeremiah 5:31, “…My people love to have it so.”
God told us not to steal (Exodus 20:15). So, what do we see rampant in America today? Theft. People rob banks, steal other people’s valuables or just simply download music off the Internet that they have not paid for. Any way you look at it, it’s all theft. The guy who wrongfully downloads music off the Internet and the guy who robs a bank are no different at all in God’s eyes. Stealing is stealing and the Lord looks at the thoughts and intents of our heart (Jeremiah 17:10).
How about this one? God told us not to kill (Exodus 20:13). So, what do we see in America today? The violent murder of unborn children in their mother’s womb, not to mention all the other murders and violence that takes place on the streets of America on a daily basis.
God hates hands that shed innocent blood (Proverbs 6:16-17).
God said, “Thou shalt not commit adultery” in Exodus 20:14 and that no fornicator, which are those who engage in sex before marriage, will enter into the Kingdom of God (I Corinthians 1:9-10). So, what are we seeing in America today? Sex is glorified on TV, in movies, and in music. It’s common place in our country for people to live together before marriage, and for men and women to cheat on their spouses. What is wrong with us? Do we think that we will not reap what we sow, as the Bible tells us in Galatians 6:7?
The Lord said homosexuality is an abomination (Leviticus 18:22). So, what do we see in America today? The absolute glorification and exultation of the homosexual lifestyle, not to mention transgenders and all other sorts of sexual immorality.
Jesus said in Ephesians 5:31, “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.” God ordained sex between a man and a woman within the confines of marriage, not the other way around. The worldly mind, in many cases, poke fun at someone waiting to have sex till their wedding day, for example.
Yet, that is exactly what the Lord commanded us to do. Like I said earlier, what is wrong is now viewed as right.
God told us to honor our father and mother (Exodus 20:12). Look at teenagers today. Do you see much honor towards their parents? No.
The Lord said to have no other gods before Him (Exodus 20:3). Do you see the gods/idols that Americans have created out of sports.
Consider the examples of football, baseball, hockey, or any other sport and notice how the game and the players are worshiped. They have become the idols of Americans today. It is absolutely sick. Some professed Christians will not even pass out a Gospel track for fear of embarrassment, and yet they are unashamed to paint themselves purple and gold and scream their lungs out looking like absolute fools for their favorite football team.
I could go on and on forever showing how America has done exactly what the Lord told us not to do. America has done the exact opposite of what God has commanded us in His Word. We have rebelled against the Lord and His commands and have indulged in every wicked and abominable activity known to mankind!
What have we become America? A shame? A disgrace? An absolute abominable nation in the sight of God? Try all of the above. What can save America? People are so foolish as to believe that a man or woman in the form of a presidential candidate can save America.
How ridiculous! Only God can save America, but make no mistake, judgment is coming. We can see it in our nation even today. People in this country are vain, foolish, and materialistic. They think more about their own frivolous and empty lives of materialism and vanity than they do about the 3,000 babies that are killed through abortion every day.
What can I say? Is the Lord not going to repay America for her wickedness? You bet He is. Read Isaiah 59. We are in trouble, and the only hope for America is Jesus Christ. We, in this nation, must repent, turn from our wicked ways and execute swift judgment upon the wicked throughout this land. Judgment has been turned backwards here in the United States (Isaiah 59:14) and for the most part, the people would have it so.
If not, then why do they do virtually nothing about it? Government is corrupt, the school system is corrupt, and people in general are corrupt. There is no better way to purge a nation than through judgment, and God is a just Judge who must execute justice upon evil doers. Otherwise, He would cease to be good, which He could never cease to be.
What will be our end America? Much of what the future holds depends on what we do today. Wake up before it’s too late!
