“And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand” (Matthew 12:25 KJV)
Whether it be a household or a nation, it cannot stand when it is divided. I fear and pray for America everyday as she continues to divide herself over political issues, values, morals, and direction. I believe it is safe to say that America has not been so deeply divided since the Civil War. True, we have always had two ruling political parties but even they found common ground in order to rule and run our nation effectively. Such is not the case now. Both political sides are in a stand-off with the American people held hostage.
I am a conservative with conservative values that I hold near and dear to my heart. I am a follower and believer in Christ Jesus and these days that makes me a target within my own nation. We, the people, are now considered either far right or far left…The once common ground of our Christian heritage no longer binds and holds us together…We are now knee-deep in a society that “does what is right in their own eyes.” Without God, a nation cannot rule without anarchy.
It is sad how conservatives are being blamed for our nation’s troubles and woes…And, the left-wing is being uplifted and praised as it boasts that man should be able to marry man and woman should be able to marry woman…Not to mention the thousands of babies who go murdered everyday without representation. We live in a land where a man or woman can be tried for cruelty to an animal, but we have no regard for human life…We are truly a nation that has gone array from far away from the teachings and principles of the Bible.
Our land was once recognized and respected by the world, but now the world pokes fun at us and laughs at our inabilities to govern effectively. Oh, how we have fallen in such a short time span…But, actually it hasn’t been so short…It’s been 51 years since our nation voted to adhere to “Separation of Church and State” which lead to “Separation of God and State.” The catalyst for our current demise.
Oh, that our nation would seek God who would then send His messenger to lead our people back to Him and to unity. How far we have fallen no ones truly knows…And, how long it will continue to fall is to be seen…But, it is my prayer that we will “fall to our knees” in repentance and restitution between God and man and God and our nation…lest we perish.
Remember, God Loves You…May we return to Him in all our ways and reunite our land…
