Dear America

Dear America, land that I love.  And Dear Church:

I wonder what God is saying to us in this season of testing: COVID worldwide, and political unrest, unknowns, and many personal struggles this year.  I think this is some of what He is saying:

 

 

I have a case against you, for there is no faithfulness or kindness or knowlege of God in the land.

There is swearing, deception, murder, stealing, and adultry. They employ violence, so that bloodshed follows bloodshed.  (Hosea 4:1-2)

For blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.  It is I who make peace in your borders. (Psalm 33:12) (Psalm 147:14)

Return to Me, and I will return to you. (Zechariah 1:3)

How good it is when brothers live in unity. (Psalm 133:1)

But a house divided can not stand. (Mark 3:25)

Hear now, heads…and rulers.  Is it not for you to know justice?  You who hate good and love evil… (Micah 3:1-2)

O My people!  Those who guide you lead you astray and confuse the direction of your paths. (Isaiah 3:12)

A voice is heard on the bare heights, the weeping and the supplications… because they have forgotten the Lord their God. (Jeremiah 3:21)

Without holiness, none shall see God. (Hebrews 12:14)

Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be! (Romans 6:15)

Put aside all anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech. (Colossians 3:8)

Persue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentlenss. (1 Timothy 6:11)

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.  Love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:37, 39).

Hide My word in your hearts that you might not sin against Me. (Psalm 119:11)

Dear America and Church of God,

Judgment begins in the household of God. (1 Peter 4:17)

Let us reason together, though your sin is as scarlet it shall be white as snow. (Isaiah 1:18)

Remember from where you have fallen and repent and do the deeds you did at first. (Revelation 2:5)

Jesus Christ came into this world to save sinners. (1 Timothy 1:15)

For because I so love you, and all the world, I sent my Son, Jesus, and whosover believes in Him shall be saved. (John 3:16)

Remember, Jesus is returning.  When Jesus returns every eye will see Him and know Him. (Revelation 1:7)

Oh America and Church, turn back each of you from your evil ways, correct your ways and your deeds. (Jeremiah 18: 11)

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen. (Revelation 22:21)
