I come to you with a heavy heart today.
For those of you in the USA, this is a relevant, timely message; for those of you in the rest of the world—please pray for US.
For weeks I’ve been struggling with this message, even wrestling with it in my dreams. It seems like I can’t sleep well until I share this message with you.
The USA is at a crossroads of change. We have a choice: will we go toward righteousness or continue to elevate unrighteousness? Will we choose good or evil?
Take a look at Deuteronomy Chapter 28.
While you turn there, think about this question: will we choose blessings or curses?
We want the blessings—oh; we really want God to bless us abundantly. But, I’ve heard preachers read and teach from the first part of this chapter—where all the blessings are listed--and skip the last part of this chapter—where all the curses are listed.
Read verses 15 and 16--
“But if you refuse to listen to the Lord your God and do not obey all the commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come and overwhelm you: Your towns and your fields will be cursed.
Now, skip down to verses 43 and 44—
“The foreigners living among you will become stronger and stronger, while you become weaker and weaker. They will lend money to you, but you will not lend to them. They will be the head, and you will be the tail!
Doesn’t that sound like the present state of our economy? Could it be that because our great nation has forsaken the Lord, and refused to listen to Him and obey Him, we’ve become cursed as a nation?
For far too long, compromising so-called Christian politicians have given in to socialistic left-wing ideas and principles. Look at the political parties in the USA: with a few notable exceptions, there are no Democrats or Republicans—it’s all one big compromising left-leaning party.
And they’re in the process of crucifying our great nation.
Oh, Body of Christ—this weighs heavy on our nation, and on my heart. I know what some of you are feeling—I can see it in the tears in your eyes.
We want the blessings—we want God to bless America, our cities, towns and our homes. The key is in verses 1, 2 and 3—
“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world. You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God: Your towns and your fields will be blessed.
So, the key is to be obedient to the Lord, and obey His commandments—then He will bless us.
For far too long, compromising Ministers have preached blessings and prosperity--selling all kinds of books and videos for THEIR prosperity--while ignoring the basics of obedience and repentance.
And they’re helping the politicians crucify our great nation.
If we as divided Christians in America would repent and return wholeheartedly united to the Word of God and God Himself, He would give us a sweeping revival—one that hasn’t been witnessed here for over a century.
As the good men in the Book of Acts, Chapter 2, asked--
Peter’s words pierced their hearts, and they said to him and to the other apostles, “Brothers, what should we do?”
Peter answered them with the keys—the keys Jesus gave him—in order to enter the kingdom of God—
Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. This promise is to you, and to your children…”
It’s our time, precious saints.
It’s time to obey the Word of God, together. May the USA become the United Saints of America, and repent and return to our Christian roots, fearing and living for the One, True Living God—His Name is Jesus!
Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.
