“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 sins, and will heal their land.”  II Chronicles 7:14

It is no secret that Americans today are faced with what is probably the weirdest election scenario in our history.  As a nation, we have fallen so far into Godlessness, rank immorality, criminality (as in the murder of millions of unborn children), and disregard for the Jewish people and God’s nation of Israel, that it seems we’ve reached the point of no return.  But have we?

Yes, our choices in the presidential race are literally HORRIBLE!  As a West Virginia woman put it, when recently interviewed, “What choice do we have?  It’s between a criminal and a crazy man.”  But even more disturbing than then question of voting was a recent comment I heard concerning prayer:  “Why pray?  It’s hopeless.  God is finished with America.”

In answering such a claim, we can point to II Chronicles 7:14.  Although this promise was made to Old Testament Israel, the principle stands.  Let us remember the 18th Century Great Awakenings, when God performed a mighty work of revival and return to righteousness through the human vehicles of Jonathan Edwards in America, and John Wesley in England.  Only God knows the amount of prayer which prefaced those Awakenings.  But we can be absolutely assured that there was prayer, and plenty of it!

Whenever the subject of America’s fallen condition arises, I think of Sodom and Gomorrah—and Abraham’s bartering with God:  “Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city, wilt Thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?”

So went the bargaining, as fifty and then 45/40/30/20 righteous men could not be found.  God finalized by promising:  “. . . I will not destroy it for ten’s sake.”

We all know what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah because ten righteous men could not be found therein.  In the United States of America, there have to be infinitely more than ten righteous men, as well as women and children.  I believe there are not only hundreds, but thousands of Americans who have been saved by the shed blood of Jesus, and purpose to walk in the Holy Spirit of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ who is God!  Would God spare the United States and heal this sinful land for hundreds and thousands?

God is alive!  God is in total control of His Creation.  God raises up leaders and pulls them down according to His perfect wisdom.  God hears and answers the prayers of His people.  Revival begins with the people who are called by God’s name.  Thus a return to holiness and reliance on God alone must begin in America’s churches—many of which have  abandoned the literal teachings of Scripture and God’s mandates for righteous living.

As Christians, we must uphold God’s Word and His standards of righteousness.  We have no other choice.  There are many of us who are heartbroken over the demise of our once-Godly nation, and we must pray and seek God’s face! 

We are far more than ten righteous men!

A large crowd on an airfield; British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain presents an assurance from German Chancellor Adolf Hitler.

British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain holds the paper signed by both Hitler and himself on his return from Munich to England, on September 20th, 1938.  Photo courtesy of Wikipedia.

Here is part of the text of Prime Minister Chamberlain’s speech upon return
“We, the German Fuhrer and Chancellor, and the British Prime Minister, have had a further meeting today and are agreed in recognizing that the question of Anglo-German relations is of the first importance for our two countries and for Europe. We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again. We are resolved that the method of consultation shall be the method adopted to deal with any other questions that may concern our two countries, and we are determined to continue our efforts to remove possible sources of difference, and thus to contribute to assure the peace of Europe. My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor.  I believe it is “peace for our time.” Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.”
————————————————————————————-
A little less than a year later, Germany invaded Poland.  In May of 1940 Hitler invaded Holland, France, Luxembourg, and Belgium.  Then September 7, 1940 marked the beginning of the “blitz”.  Here are excerpts from the Wikipedia account:

Starting on 7 September 1940, London was bombed by the Luftwaffe for 57 consecutive nights. More than one million London houses were destroyed or damaged, and more than 40,000 civilians were killed, almost half of them in London.  Ports and industrial centres outside London were also heavily attacked. The major Atlantic sea port of Liverpool was also heavily bombed, causing nearly 4,000 deaths within the Merseyside area during the war.  The North Sea port of Hull, a convenient and easily found primary and secondary target for bombers unable to locate their primary targets, was subjected to 86 raids within the city boundaries during the war, with a conservative estimate of 1200 civilians killed and 95% of its housing stock destroyed or damaged.  Other ports including Bristol, Cardiff, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Southampton, and Swansea were also targeted, as were the industrial cities of Birmingham, Belfast, Coventry, Glasgow, Manchester and Sheffield.  Birmingham and Coventry were heavily targeted because of the Spitfire and tank factories in Birmingham and the many munitions factories in Coventry; the city centre of Coventry was almost completely destroyed.

Ironic words, “. . . a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor . . . .”  It would be a long time before millions in Britain and across Europe would have a nice quiet sleep.

Our President and his minions are looking for a piece of paper to bring “peace with honor.”  Meanwhile one of the few honorable statesmen of our day, Bibi Netanyahu, will address Congress on March 3rd.  From proximity to barbarism comparable to that of Nazi Germany, from an understanding gleaned from two-thousand years of persecution, Prime Minister Netanyahu will warn Congress and our nation of the palpable threat to Israel and the entire world.

Whether clueless or unabashedly evil, our arrogant and self-serving President of the United States of America (along with a disgustingly substantial representation of Congress) will be missing Netanyahu’s speech, and also missing any kind of reaching out to the Israeli Prime Minister.

And our aging Hippie Secretary of State—who outlandishly took a guitar folk singer to Paris (can you imagine anything so crass?) to cheer the French people in the wake of unleashed terror in Paris—is currently overseas working on that illustriously misguided, inane, and meaningless piece of paper.

Either Obama and his White House minions (who either love him or are too chicken to blow the whistle on him) and Secretary of State Kerry never studied world history, or they have very short memories!
