Even the casual observer will admit that our Nation, the United States of America is in trouble. Our politicians have spent us to near financial collapse with a Socialist, nanny state, cradle-to grave mindset. The same politicians have enacted laws that have stripped this Nation of any sense of national morality. While abortion mills slaughter the unborn, now numbering in the multiplied millions, we have also re-defined a God ordained institution to suit our own perverted concept of what marriage really is. In spite of the fact, that the people of this Nation have voted overwhelmingly, time and again, that marriage is rightly defined and understood as being between one man and one woman, ungodly judges deem it otherwise and have forced the perverted notion upon us that homosexual/lesbian marriages must be accepted as the norm. At the same time, any un-acceptance of this perversion, if expressed vocally or in printed form, is now labeled as "hate speech".
In addition, because of judicial activism, any public display or promotion of anything resembling Christian thought or principle is now rejected and held in disdain under threat of arrest, fines, or both.
This present generation and it's multifaceted understanding of their "rights" has unwittingly placed our politicians in the position of wrongly attempting to be all things to all men in order to build and keep their voting/power base intact. Thus, a true reflection, and in glaring display for all to see, the politicians motivation of pure selfishness toward satisfying their lust for, and clutching at continuous positions of power. The whole concept of individual "rights" that also demand responsible behavior has been completely lost by the wayside.
That, dear friends is the state of this Nation in capsule packaging. We are in free-fall, financially and morally, and are forced by law, by the decrees of a corrupt judicial system to be subject to more taxes and regulation of virtually every area of our lives, all-the-while being forced to accept and behave toward murder of innocents and the sexual perversions of people gone mad as being alright. That, dear ones, is nothing short of Tyranny. Those who continually demand their "rights", regardless of what they see their rights as being have all but placed us in the unenviable state of Anarchy and Lawlessness.
Many good freedom loving Americans are angered, and, at the same time discouraged by what they are seeing transpire in this Nation they love and cherish........and rightly so. But........Is there a response, an alternative, that goes beyond anger and total bewilderment ? I think there is. It should not be overlooked or abandoned without trying.
Since the ungodly, the lost, and the carnal man after the flesh, is, for the most part, incapable of praying for themselves, spiritual men and women must bear the load of Intercessory Prayer........praying for and on behalf of others who are either incapable or unwilling to pray for themselves.
The Apostle Paul put it this way; "I exhort therefore, that first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men. For Kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the Truth. (1st Timothy 2:1-4)
I see this as the most likely solution to this present hour, not only for this nation, but for the World as a whole. The nations and governments of the world are in chaos just as we are. Not only is united, widespread Intersession the most likely solution...............At this point, it may be the only solution.
If we do not do it now, When shall we do it ? If we, as a people of God don't do it, Then Who will ?
I would love to see this shared and re-posted far and wide. If you are prodded in you heart by the Spirit of God to do so, Please, Please follow through................And then, Begin Praying !
