Sometimes we forget that God is not FORCING men, but looking for those who will Seek Him out and Choose Him. God is making up a People FOR HIS NAME SAKE. These people will be made up of those who have a heart to hear and choose the Lord and a Peculiar People who LOVE GOD and desire righteousness. It never has been Force.
God gave all men from the beginning a choice. He started in the Garden of Eden by giving Adam and Eve the choice of obedience when he placed the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden and commanded them to not eat the fruit of it. If God was a God of Force, than why did he give them a Choice?
I say, GOD WILL NOT FORCE THE PEOPLE IN AMERICA (OR THE WORLD) TO CHOOSE HIM OR EVEN LIVE FOR HIM. He will not and He never has. He has given men in America A Choice.
Now we see that many in this once great land are choosing to walk without God;’ choosing to Live in Sin and be selfish. God has taken note of it. It is not for us now to try to FORCE MEN to be Christians or even believe in God. We are to warn them and tell them in Love, but if they do not choose the Lord than it is not our place to try to force this issue. The time has come in America that honestly it appears that many Americans have made a deep choice to not have God in their lives. Unfortunately we who believe are living in the midst of this wayward and wicked generation and we are now facing a even greater challenge to live for God ourselves.
In America in the past righteousness has prevailed and this Land has been blessed because men believed in God and wanted God in their lives. We who are Americans have been greatly blessed to be free in this land to worship and serve the Lord with litter interference or opposition from evil men, but now things are changing. Men who are evil have risen up and they now are trying to Force their ungodliness upon God fearing people.
It is a SIGN OF THE TIME. We are nearing the time the Bible declares to be the fearful…. DAY OF THE LORD. Even though God does not force men to choose him, He will be FORCED HIMSELF TO RID HIS WORLD OF SIN. He will not allow men who choose evil to live in his eternal land, so He has created a place for eternal men to live.
HELL. It was their choice, NOT HIS. He never wanted men to go to Hell, but he will not prevent them from making such a choice. The Bible says in Romans 1:21-24:
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish hears was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things.
WHEREFORE GOD ALSO GAVE THEM UP TO UNCLEANNESS through the lust of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves….”
I want you to notice the wording… GOD GAVE THEM UP TO UNCLEANNESS…. If men want to choose to live unclean and without even the knowledge of God. If they want to live like animals than God will let them, and he has.
I say… WE SHOULD TOO. We should let them go on and choose their evil way. I think we must continue to pray and preach to them and FOR THOSE WHO WILL REPENT AND BELIEVE and desire to live with and for God, THAN WE SHOULD HELP THEM ALL AND DO ALL WE CAN FOR THEM.. but men who choose against God, we can not change what they have chosen. There is one thing we can not do… WE CAN NOT OVERRIDE THEIR FREE WILL. Many are acting as if we can and saying we must pray that they get saved… we must pray that they are awakened.. and it goes beyond giving them the Gospel. They act as if THEY CAN FORCE THEM TO BELIEVE. NO. We can not force them any more than we can force the force the devil to get saved. GOD WILL NOT OVERRIDE THEIR WILL BUT WILL WAIT TO SEE IF THEY WILL REPENT AND COME TO HIM. If they do not, than God will not force them. One thing Jesus did while on earth… when someone rejected him… HE KEPT WALKING… HE DID NOT BEG THEM. AND FOR SURE, HE DID NOT EVEN TRY TO FORCE THEM. He WARNED THEM, and even wept, but He never forced anyone. He stood that day and watched as the Rich man walked away and told his apostles, see how hard it is for a rich man to go to heaven. He did not run after him and say, OH PLEASE WILL YOU NOT RECEIVE ME!!! NO. HE LET HIM WALK. Jesus left his home town and WENT TO ANOTHER TOWN after they rejected him. I do find any scriptures where he ever went back to them and begged them to repent.
IF MEN WANT TO BE WITHOUT GOD, AND WE HAVE WARNED THEM AND LOVED THEM AND GIVEN THEM THE GOSPEL… THEIR BLOOD IS NOT ON OUR HANDS… WE HAVE DELIVERED OUR SOULS FROM THEM.
