With Independence Day around the corner, it is important that we remember our separation from tyranny; however, we must not separate ourselves from God. I know you want revival. You want to see Jesus honored and exalted in the lives of people you know and people you love. You are a God-lover.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
Has America entered the time of God’s “abandonment judgment?”
Its a sobering question. Many of the prophetic voices are saying the Covid-19 pandemic is simply a “dress rehearsal” for what lies just ahead for our nation. Of course, their words are always laced with hope if we would head them.
Just this morning, I received a personal message from one of America’s prophetic voices:
“I’m receiving some deeply serious words from the Lord about an imminent “correction” (disaster of utmost proportions) coming to America. I’m wanting to know if you are getting the same unction, the same direction, the same serious nature of what’s coming. It’s not a pretty picture.”
A respected and credible prophet from Australia recently shared a vision he encountered about the United States. In a nutshell, he saw two gigantic dark spiritual beings coming violently over America. One was “hate,” and the other was “fear.” These dark spirits were bringing chaos, confusion, and terror over the nation. But as God’s people interceded, powerful angels were released to push back the darkness. When believers cried out to God, the angels were successful in holding back the demonic forces.
I know you want revival. You want to see Jesus honored and exalted in the lives of people you know and people you love. You are a God-lover.
Yet, the collective condition of our nation may have gone past the point of no return, like Germany in the 1920s just before Adolf Hitler.
Is it too late?
I remember attending flight school and learning about the point on the runway when it’s too late to abort takeoff. It’s the point when you cannot terminate your takeoff because there isn’t enough runway to stop. You have to rotate and climb. It’s the only option.
Are we past the point of no return? Have we entered a time of God’s “abandonment judgment”? Just a few years ago, God undoubtedly gave us a short and gracious reprieve so we could repent and call for His mercy. But did we?
Are the sins about to reach full measure?
I’m a man of faith. I still have a great vision and a remarkable hope for our country. Nevertheless, I believe that the sins of America are about to reach “full measure” when the loving God, in His justice, resorts to abandonment judgment.
In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure.
We see the abandonment judgment on individuals who abandon God and His principles.
Romans 1:18 NLT
But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness.
Wicked people are defined as those who “suppress the truth.” Have you heard much about “fake news” lately?
Once the individual heart has rejected God’s truth and gives the cold shoulder to genuine repentance in favor of rationalizing sin, idolatry will always follow, as will God’s abandonment judgment.
We have steadily removed God from every phase of our public lives. For example, the United States is among the world leaders in the promotion of sexual depravity.
I believe the abandonment judgment has already begun. We are now seeing the beginning of sorrows leading to the dreaded, approaching Great Tribulation.
Let’s repent for our nation.
God gave birth to this nation and helped us rise to greatness. We were never a perfect nation, yet the principles, declarations, and laws of America were founded and formed to honor the Creator and His creation; and in turn, God has blessed this nation.
God would not judge the nation of the Amorites until their sin reached its “full measure.” The abandonment judgment of God is when He abandons a nation to its own ways and allows them to suffer the horrifying consequences. God removes His protective barrier; His hedge.
Let’s pray for millions to turn to Jesus Christ in the days ahead as we approach the “Billion-Soul Harvest.” Let’s pray that God will have mercy on our country. Let’s train real leaders, real soul winners, honest marketplace apostles, and equipped disciple makers while there is still time. God has a plan for us.
For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’
Remember the admonition of our Lord Jesus:
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
