GOLDEN NUGGETS # 109 REFLECTIONS: BUT WHAT CAN I DO?
Most everyone would agree that our nation and the world are in a mess, although we may have sharply divergent opinions on exactly what the mess is and who caused it. The whole world is engaged in a great cosmic, spiritual battle between good (God) and evil (Satan). Spoiler alert: God wins! As a matter of fact, He has already defeated the devil and determined his future: the lake of fire. Satan is no match for God. He can only do what he is allowed to do. Satan has no authority on the earth that man does not give him, and God is using him to train and prepare His children to rule and reign with Him eternally.
Because the Church was complacent, lazy or fast asleep, we let the devil quietly takeover our nation. We let prayer be taken out of the schools. We let unborn babies be murdered by the tens of millions. We let perversion, violence, death, and destruction takeover the entertainment industry, corrupting us AND our children. We let colleges and universities fall into the hands of secular humanists and Marxists who taught our young people there is no God and the government will take care of you. We stopped preaching about sin and its consequences, because people didn’t want to hear it. Many pulpits became a platform for humanistic cheerleaders rather than the Word of God. The end result of all that? We are in a hot mess!
Both the United States and the world are at a critical moment in history; a Kairos moment in God’s calendar. The results of the 2020 election will be a turning point for the United States of America. Once the final results have been obtained and a new president sworn in, the die will be cast. We will either be a nation under God, or we will be a nation under a Marxist socialist government. And the results will have profound effects on the rest of the world. We will continue to be a sovereign nation or become part of the satanic one-world global movement. The United States, under most presidents, has supported Israel, at least partly. President Trump has been a champion for Israel before the world. If Biden becomes president, support for Israel will be quickly withdrawn, as it was in the Obama-Biden administration. Warning: God says He will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel! (See Genesis 12:3)
Will we be a nation of law and order, founded on the Constitution? Or will we be a nation of chaos, looting, rioting, and perversion? Will we be a God-fearing nation or a nation where the government becomes god?
You may be thinking, Yes, we’re in a mess, but what can I do about it? My friend, if you are a born-again believer, you can do a lot about it! Begin with repenting for allowing things to get to this point! Commit yourself once again to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and serving Him with an undivided heart.
God has given His Church the three most powerful weapons in all of heaven and earth – the blood of the Lamb, the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God. And He has told us to combine them in prayer and decree His will upon the earth.
What can you do after repentance? Pray for God’s forgiveness, righteousness and justice over this nation. Pray for corruption to be exposed to the light. Pray and decree that God’s will is done in our nation. And pray that God’s will is done in the results of the election.
God is throwing down the gauntlet: Choose this day whom you will serve. We all have a choice, and we all will make a choice even if we think we can just sit on the sidelines and "wait to see what happens." We are being weighed in the balance. Choose life.
