Hearken Unto Me

Isa 46:12  Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness: 
Isa 46:13  I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory. 

The young in every generation think that they know better than their elders. They get into sin and because their friends are doing the same, they see it as something acceptable. Some of these are Christians that go along with their friends. This is one way that their witness is weakened. A popular leader can get to the hearts of a generation that has strayed from God's word. They may claim to be Christians, but their actions are more like the majority who follow the popular leader. When Hitler came to power in Germany, there were many professing Christians that supported him. There were some who opposed him and became martyrs, dying for their beliefs. When the Nazis began killing the Jews, the Jews saw that most of Germany called themselves "Christians" and because of the evil done to them by these Christians, they wanted no part of Jesus, their Messiah. One way to destroy a "Christian" nation is to ignore the laws of God and to make evil sinful things protected and promoted by the government. Government control of healthcare and welfare leads to the slave mentality or the "entitlement" generation. America was founded on God's word and on freedom. It was by hard work and personal sacrifice that our fathers brought us to the easy life we now enjoy. Our nation is being weakened from within and but for the prayers of it's people, it will not stand. There will be no more American dream brought about by faith in God and hard work to accomplish great things. There are still a remnant of Christians who trust the LORD, who read their Bible and pray. I ask the Lord to strengthen what remains. May the power of God flow out to clean up the nation and it's sins. May Jew and Gentile come to the real Jesus and live in and for him, now and evermore. Shalom, peace be with you.
