WITHOUT REAL VIRTUE

“Have you ever found in history, one single example of a Nation thoroughly corrupted that was afterwards restored to virtue?

… And without virtue, there can be no political liberty

…Will you tell me how to prevent riches from becoming the effects of temperance and industry?

Will you tell me how to prevent luxury from producing effeminacy, intoxication, extravagance, vice and folly?

… I believe no effort in favour of virtue is lost”

~Written in a letter to Thomas Jefferson by John Adams~

WHERE IS THE VIRTUE IN AMERICA TODAY?????

DOES IT EVEN EXIST ANYMORE?

America has taken the path to redefine morality and what was good is now evil, what is up is now down.  In other words, what was once recognized as being sinful is now being revered by many as virtuous.  All the values, standards and morals our nation were established under and directed by God’s Holy Word are being discarded and we who are vehemently against these changes are being disparaged and persecuted by our government, leaders and supposedly our brethren.  We have become nonconformists in our own land.  Adams states “without virtue there can be no political liberty”; I say there can be no liberty period.

Isaiah 5:20 (KJV)

 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

 WHAT SHOULD BE OUR EFFORT?

Philippians 4:4-9 (KJV)

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

WHAT WILL IT TAKE

911 photo: 911 ACFB19C.jpg

In the days that followed this catastrophic event,  America got down on it’s knees as a country and prayed to God.  Churches were filled to capacity and people everywhere reached out to their fellow man.  Cities and towns all across America held prayer rallies.  Unfortunately this only lasted approximately 1 month, if even that.  There was no great revival nor repentance to follow.

It’s been thirteen years since that fateful day and we now find ourselves in world situations that could lead to this very thing again, or even worse.  America needs divine intervention – we need God’s help.  We were a nation founded as “One Nation Under God”; unfortunately it appears that America has taken steps further away from God more than we ever have in our entire history as a nation.  America is truly being led down the path to moral and spiritual decay because we have turned against the God of our foundation and have driven Him out of our schools, our government and have even driven Him out of our churches with His Word being twisted and maligned all in the name of being “politically correct”.   Alas, this is the beginning of the ‘falling away” or apostasy that must take place before the AC is to come on the scene.  We need to do whatever we can to impede this prophecy.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 (KJV)

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

This week as we remember 9/11/01 get down on your knees and pray to God that he blesses our nation again.  That we experience a revival to top all revivals.  America must turn around or we will be brought to our knees and the next time, we may not rise from the ashes.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

The Armor of God

Ephesians 6:10-18 (ESV)

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.

11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

15 and,as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.

16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;

17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,

18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints

Just more scriptural food for thought down the road we are being led:

Proverbs 22:3 (KJV)

A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.

Isaiah 26:20-21  (KJV)

 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Mark 13:37  (KJV)

And what I say unto you I say unto all, WATCH

DONE AND DUSTED

Is this where America finds itself today?   How many answers do we have to all the so called congressional investigations that have been conducted in the last 4 years?  How many steps have been taken to bring America back from the brink?  I could go on and on but the answer remains the same for all of them; not to mention that with each dawning day we encounter a new problem on the horizon.  In fact, there are so many, I am to the point of not even wanting to hear about all of them.  It’s been said to “never let a good crisis go to waste”, well I say:

Grab every opportunity you can through the door to conquer it, even if you have to drag it in kicking and screaming – what more do we have to lose.
