Isaiah 1:4 "Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward."
I couldn't help but think about this verse in relation to our nation. It saddens my heart each and every day as I hear of new things that are being done to take us further away from God than we already are. Prayer was taken out of our schools...abortion was legalized and now we are seeing sodomy become more accepted and promoted in our present day society. Does any of this glorify God? Of course not. And what is all this doing to our nation? It is bringing the judgment of God on our nation. If you don't think the Oklahoma City bombings and the twin tower bombings and now all that is taking place in the weather are not the judgment of God then I don't know where you have been living. I know that you can say that men are involved in the bombings and now we are hearing reports that man is even responsible for what is taking place in some of the weather patterns and such. But I tell you right here and right now that God is allowing these things to bring judgment on our nation.
We have storm system after storm system that is coming across our nation on almost a daily basis lately. Now I don't know if it is being said that they are saying man has had anything to do with those...but I know that when Katrina came through that is was said to have been blamed on man...at least some of it. I don't know about all that but I know if man has had some part in any of it....God has allowed it!!
God is judging our nation because we have turned our backs on Him and His Word. This country was founded on His Word. The longer we continue to live here on this earth the worse it is going to get as our nation turns further and further from Him. I also know that the longer we live on this earth the closer we are getting to that glorious day when we who know Him will hear that trumpet and that shout calling us to "Come up hither". I don't know about you but I can't wait and I'm listening every day for that sound from Heaven.
Have a blessed day!! Don't forget to pray for this great nation we live in. We're still free to worship Him and possess the Word of God. Begin to hide it in your heart if you haven't already because one day that could be taken from us too.
