As a nation we, The United States of America, have numerous woes. Yet there are certain national sins that, even as these words are written, are undermining and destroying the land. A few months ago the LORD gave me revelation in regards to these sins and their roots:
First, what are the sins?
Homosexuality and Abortion
Second, what is at their root?
What is my premise for this argument?
“Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth”” Genesis 1:28.
The first command given unto man was, “To be fruitful and to multiply.” What is the opposite of multiplication? Subtraction, reduction and ultimately destruction. The rebellious sins of homosexuality and abortion originate near the dawn of mankind. Historical documents, namely the Book of Enoch, give insight into the origination of this rebellion. It was Satan’s fallen angels that taught us these practices and it was these sins which were rampant on the face of the earth prior to the flood. First came the rebellion and in response came a preacher of righteousness (Noah) and then ultimately judgment. The whole of mankind was laid waste save eight souls.
Since the flood there have been numerous cities and kingdoms which have met destruction as a direct result of the exact same rebellious practices. Now these sins are widespread across our nation. The precedent has been set and we are only fooling ourselves if we think we will meet with a different result than that which we see throughout history.
Sins that were once seen as an abomination are now heralded as triumphs of mankind. What was called good is now placed under the category of evil and what was once called evil is now categorized as good. What is to follow? WOE
If we do not repent, judgment will continue to unfold until we too are laid to ruin. “Weep and wail for this once great nation is wasting away! You declare that you are free but you are in spiritual chains and the physical chains are soon to follow.”
At this point you may be saying to yourself, “This cannot happen! Sure this pattern of rebellion has led to the destruction of other nations but it won’t happen to us! We are the land of the free and the home of the brave. We are different.“
On this day, hear the voice of the LORD:
“I set before you life and death; blessings and curses. You have chosen curses leading unto death. You forsake the blessing of godly union for unnatural acts. You devalue that which was fearfully and wonderfully made as you cast it into the garbage heap. The blood of the innocent cries out from the earth. It demands justice.
There are but two paths for this nation; repentance leading unto mercy or rebellion leading unto continued judgment and ultimately destruction.”
At this point you may be thinking that this message is too harsh. You may be reasoning that God is love and therefore this is not within His character.
First off, while these words may be harsh, they are not so harsh as a judgment that comes upon the land without warning. God is just and so when His mercy has been repeatedly refused the only thing that remains is judgment. He has proven merciful and slow to anger in this land. He has extended mercy and withheld judgment but now the scales are tipping and without an immediate change in course we are charting into troubled waters indeed. Love compels action. If forced to a decision between a prosperous nation whose people are falling into the pits of hell or broken nation whose people’s hearts are turned towards Him, the loving response is to break the back of this nation so that some may be saved.
Is He breaking your heart? If so there is but one response. “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land” 2 Chronicles 7:14.
A broken and contrite heart He will not despise Psalm 51:17.
The watchman is on the wall. He sees the danger approaching. He is blowing the shofar. Will you heed the warning?
