America is crumbling and few know it. The empire of greatness is gradually flooding but even fewer see it. The land of the free and home of the brave is quickly fading away to be nothing but a former paradise- destroyed. There's always silence before a storm erupts upon the shores.
An alarm echoes in the night but hardly anyone hears it. Signs are evident and copious but eyes are blind to notice. The clouds are gathering with prominence overhead and boldly presented, but most spectators dismiss them as whimsical. If only the festivities hadn't distracted man's attention.
The monotonous machine carries on in motion, while the rhythm of the dance never quickens or slows. Humanity lies caught in the clutches of ignorance, sipping on pleasures without prudence. Only fools follow a harlot.
In the cover of darkness the enemy advances, discreetly deceptive in his disarming guise. He comes to offer candy to the simplest of men, and to prey on the innocent who are guilty of negligence. He permeates their minds by the means of entertainment, diluting their subconscious with his subtle manipulating behavior. A nation brainwashed to despise the position of authority can succumb to nothing less than rebellion-a child would be wise to know his place.
It's a crisis. A nation so tempted to oppose the very authority of its Governor should take heed lest its uprising be squashed. A people so emboldened to defy the laws and boundaries set up by their Father, should take caution lest they be disciplined by His love. An unfaithful spouse so stupid as to betray her Husband, should beware lest His jealousy consume her in her frivolous adulteries. It's the senseless who need to be knocked upside the head.
Powerful description of the state of our nation. I wish it were only as easy as popping someone upside the head to knock some sense into them . But alas as you wrote-most are lulled in a self imposed, blind complacency (ignoring the Truth all around them) and can only potentially be awakened by the judgments and tragedy to come. Let's continue to pray for our nation!
