The Nation that Forgets GOD!

 

“The wicked go down to the realm of the dead, all the nations that forget God”   Psalm 9:17.

Any nation that turns its back on God.  God will turn its back on them.  Sometimes we don’t want to digest the truth but all of man kind is subject to God!  We can’t continue to live in and support ungodliness and shun a holy God and expect Him to just overlook our transgressions and continue to pour out blessings.  God is good all of the time, therefore He should be treated as such.

Many still continue to say with their mouths, “I know the Lord, I love the Lord”… but yet refuse to put their flesh and sin under subjection to live a life that is pleasing to the Lord (Matthew 7:22).  The Lord says that since we have not paid any attention to His words and refuse to repent and acknowledge Him as the only true and living God.  When disaster strikes, He will laugh and not answer (Proverbs 1:22-33).

Many times in the past, man and entire nations have turned away from God and refused to acknowledge Him as God and Lord of all!!  Those that have built a foundation in the Lord he will uphold with his righteous right hand but the wicked shall be cut off.  God will not sit back and be mocked and scorned.  His majesty and power will prevail!

“… for the power of the wicked will be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous”   Psalm 37:13.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you;  I will uphold you with my righteous right hand”   Isaiah 41:10.

The Nation that Forgets GOD! — 1 Comment

  1. James 2:14-26
    Amplified Bible (AMP)
    14 What is the use (profit), my brethren, for anyone to profess to have faith if he has no [good] works [to show for it]? Can [such] faith save [his soul]?
    15 If a brother or sister is poorly clad and lacks food for each day,
    16 And one of you says to him, Good-bye! Keep [yourself] warm and well fed, without giving him the necessities for the body, what good does that do?
    17 So also faith, if it does not have works (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead).
    18 But someone will say [to you then], You [say you] have faith, and I have [good] works. Now you show me your [alleged] faith apart from any [good] works [if you can], and I by [good] works [of obedience] will show you my faith.
    19 You believe that God is one; you do well. So do the demons believe and shudder [in terror and horror such as [a]make a man’s hair stand on end and contract the surface of his skin]!
    20 Are you willing to be shown [proof], you foolish (unproductive, spiritually deficient) fellow, that faith apart from [good] works is inactive and ineffective and worthless?
    21 Was not our forefather Abraham [shown to be] justified (made acceptable to God) by [his] works when he brought to the altar as an offering his [own] son Isaac?
    22 You see that [his] faith was cooperating with his works, and [his] faith was completed and reached its supreme expression [when he implemented it] by [good] works.
    23 And [so] the Scripture was fulfilled that says, Abraham believed in (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on) God, and this was accounted to him as righteousness (as conformity to God’s will in thought and deed), and he was called God’s friend.
    24 You see that a man is justified (pronounced righteous before God) through what he does and not alone through faith [through works of obedience as well as by what he believes].
    25 So also with Rahab the harlot—was she not shown to be justified (pronounced righteous before God) by [good] deeds when she took in the scouts (spies) and sent them away by a different route?
    26 For as the human body apart from the spirit is lifeless, so faith apart from [its] works of obedience is also dead.
