“Today, living in America as a U.S. Citizen, I am reminded more and more of the Nazis and the way they operated and cheated us. When I watch developments in society and analyze the political process, I shudder, especially when I look at the reasoning behind foreign policy decisions. Furthermore, listening to empty sermons in countless churches of different denominations, I recognize parallels to the nightmares my family experienced living in Nazi Germany. The silence from the pulpits in America regarding the moral destruction of American society by the establishment is not very different than the silence from the pulpits in Germany toward Nazi policies.” (Introduction to “How was it Possible” by Hilmar von Campe) The author of this book grew up Nazi Germany and he has a burden that our nation is blind to what is happening in our nation. I first wrote this article in my newsletter in 2007. It is not any better, but it is getting worst. If we, as Christians, don’t wake up, we will find that we will have a nation where we will not even be able to say the words Jesus Christ.
America is in trouble and we the people who walk with Jesus and love our Lord and Savior are the only ones that can change the direction of America. I could give you copies of article after article that support the claim that America is in trouble, but if you will only look around you can see that we are in trouble. Yes, America is still a blessed country and better than any country in the world to live in, but unless there are changes, I fear that this will not last.
I am seeing a society that is in Spiritual bankruptcy. We are moving not closer to God but farther away. If this is not changed, God will stop blessing us. America has been blessed because we gave God credit for all we have done. Now we are trying to remove God completely from our society. A society cannot last if there is not a base for its moral rules. Our base for the last two hundred years has been God and His Word the Bible. No matter what people say our country was founded on God and His Word. Our fore fathers were not saints, but they believed in God and knew that they had to look to Him for their wisdom and understanding.
I remember when I was in school, we started our school day with prayer and the teacher could read to us from the Bible. I remember many times one of our teachers reading the Bible to make a point in her teaching. Today Satan is trying to take God out of everything.
The ACLU is saying that it is defending our civil rights; but they are out to cut our links with God, Christian morality, history and tradition.
If we don’t wake up to what is happening in our county, we are in for some hard times. We must open our eyes and see what is happening. We must pray that God will allow His light to shine in the darkness. Ask God what He will have you do in this fight we are in with Satan. Everyone that walks with God has a purpose in this life. We must find our purpose before it is too late.
“They do not know, nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are unstable.” (Psalm 82:5)
We must be watchmen on the tower warning the cities when we see the enemy coming. The enemy is not coming he is already here. He is in our country. He is in our families. He is in everything that we do. Our enemy is Satan and he is out to destroy everything that he touches. He wants to destroy you, your family, your children and all that God has provided for us.
Zephaniah tells us, “And it will come to pass at that time that I will search Jerusalem with lamps, and punish the men who are settled in complacency, who say in their heart, the Lord will not do good nor will He do evil.” (Zephaniah 1:12)
This is our problem we just don’t care. We just don’t want to get involved. Do you know the people who live next door to you? Do you care about them and their souls?
We live in a world where we don’t care about anything unless it involves us. We must have a burden for our world. We need to ask God to give us a burden to get out of our complacency; to reach out to this dark world and help them to walk in the light of Jesus.
“In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” (John 1:4-5)
As I write this morning, God is telling me that we don’t have long to bring the lost to Jesus.
