You know (and this will be the last post on the subject - Maybe). It troubled me that I couldnt figure out why scared me so much about this election. It just rattled me, that I knew. It wasnt until reading a letter written by a pastor that it made more sense to me, and I trully understood. I dont have permission to post the letter, so I'll just post this part:
I believe God put America as a nation and us as individuals in this position and said, as Joshua says in Jos. 24: 15 “choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve…” Yesterday I believe He said to us; choose between your morals and your money. Will it be ethics or easy street? I’m afraid as a nation we failed this most recent test
I recieved this email this morning, I thought I'd reach more people this way:
> I received this and certainly agree that we need to do lots or praying everyday....take a moment to read this and then pass on, and maybe through prayer our country can get back on track.....> > >
"AFTER A DAY OF CONTEMPLATION AND SOUL SEARCHING, I HAVE DECIDED TO REACH OUT TO MY FRIENDS AND RELATIVES AND ASK YOU TO DO SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN TROUBLING ME FOR A LONG TIME.> >
OUR NATION IS/HAS BEEN ON THE SLIPPERY SLOPE TO HELL FOR A LONG TIME IF YOU LOOK AROUND YOU WILL FIND CORRUPTION, GREED, MORAL DECAY AND A STEADY MOVE AWAY FROM THE THINGS THAT MADE US GREAT. THE PRINCIPLES UPON WHICH THIS NATION WAS FOUNDED ARE NO LONGER OUR BACKBONE. HOWEVER, WE CAN REVERSE THIS TREND. IN GOD'S WORD HE STATES, 'IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN, AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND HEAL THEIR LAND.'> > I
AM CONVINCED THAT WE MUST PRAY FOR OUR NATION AND ITS LEADERS AND ASK FOR FORGIVENESS. SO I ASK YOU TO JOIN ME IN THIS PLEA TO OUR LORD.> >
Heavenly Father, we have turned our backs on you and your principles in your Word. We have allowed man to usurp Your role as God over life and the number of our days. But we come to you in brokenness and repentance over our sin. We cry out for your forgiveness and loving mercy and ask that you heal our land. Use us as your vessels, Lord, to bring the light of Your Truth to our nation once again, we ask in the Holy Name of Jesus. Amen.> >
WOULD YOU PLEASE SEND THIS TO AT LEAST 25 PEOPLE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK,
(SEND IT TO ALL OF THEM). ASK THEM TO PRAY EVERYDAY. 25 TO THE 5TH POWER IS 9,765,625 PEOPLE. IMAGINE IF EACH PERSON REACHES TEN OTHERS.> >
IF YOU DO AND THEY COMPLY, WE WILL LIFT UP MILLIONS OF PRAYERS A DAY TO OUR CREATOR. HE WILL HEAR US AND IN FAITH WILL ANSWER."
May God Bless you today!
