Summary: Message on America. I love this nation but we are in trouble and we God.
America’s Future Galatians 6:7-9 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Is it possible to predict a nation’s future? Can we anticipate trends, such as blessing & liberty or poverty & oppression? I believe that a simple yet powerful biblical principle. That indicates where our nation is headed: You will reap what you sow, more than you sow, & later than you sow. This principle has tremendous implications for America’s future. Given the seeds of wickedness that many in our nation are sowing, We America are heading toward disaster. It’s not too late to change course. Hey Christians must act now to preserve our precious liberties. Our country is l a large ship fighting through stormy waters in foggy weather. Spiritually & morally. We’ve lost our sense of direction. Our sexual sins, greed, pride, indulgence, & our slothfulness. Yes even our ungratefulness, & irreverence they characterize our nation. Prayer & Bible reading are no longer allowed in schools. It’s become legal to kill unborn babies. We are on our way to becoming a pagan nation. Where ungodly ideas & morals are not only accepted but celebrated. Our country is on a collision course with disaster. Amidst the darkness of our age! The church of the living God is called to be like a lighthouse. In foggy weather or on dark nights & even stormy weather. Lighthouses warn ships of danger & help guide them safely through treacherous waters. Jesus said in: Matthew 5:14-16 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Because you & I have the light of God’s Holy Spirit within us. We have a responsibility. We are to send out a beam of truth into the circle of our family, friends, coworkers, & our neighbors. Scattered across our land are literally hundreds of thousands of churches. Every week, millions of people attend services. So why is our nation, morally speaking, in a fog? Why are we almost sunk by the waves of philosophies & false religions? Pastors In the early part of last century. The liberal theology began to penetrate the churches & seminaries of America . Church authorities began to doubt the truthfulness of Scripture. They asserted that only part of the Bible was inspired by God. They said that it contained some errors. Yet my Bible says in 2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: Then I find this little jewel in Proverbs 30:5-6 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
