Is It Too Late?

When Almighty God sends repeated warnings to His people, we should ask ourselves when would we heed them? Will we ever heed them? God's judgment is coming to America, but first it must come to those of us who claim to be Christians. In fact, His judgment has already begun. Why? Christians in America have had ample opportunity to change our wicked ways. However, we choose to go on indulging in behaviors God has revealed that He hates (Proverbs 6:16-19). But what makes matters worse, Christians have chosen to go along with our surrounding culture rather than confront it. We have sat down, shut up, and blended in - no longer salt and light. I am guilty, too and I pray that God still has grace left to forgive me and strengthen me for the fight ahead.

Let's take the issue of abortion, for example. It seems it has become taboo to even bring it up. Regardless of whether five men wearing black robes declared it okay, it is still wrong in the eyes of God. All too often I hear abortion is the law of the land and a woman's right, what can be done? We should start and end with the truth. 1. Just because it is the, "Law," does not make it right. 2. Rights come from God - not the government. 3. Rights - like the right to life - are universal. They apply to all people regardless of race, heritage, background, station, or gender. Once a benefit applies to a particular class of people - women - it is a privilege, not a right. 4. God grants life and He expects His people to protect it. Since God hates hands that shed innocent blood (Proverbs 6:17); I suspect He would still call an abortion, "Murder" (Exodus 20:13 NASB).

Unfortunately, 98% of all abortions in America are performed for the convenience of the mother. The life of the baby is brutally butchered. That innocent little child has no way to defend itself. What makes this worse, women who claim to be Christians have 69% of these abortions.

Judgment begins with the House of God. It is long overdue for Christians - men and women - to repent of letting this sin live in the camp. But they won't. And for 57 million souls murdered in their mother's womb, it is too late.

Recently here in Colorado, a woman who was seven months pregnant and wanted her child had her baby hacked out of her womb by another woman who ambushed the defenseless mother-to-be. The evil killer stabbed the pregnant woman and murdered the unborn baby girl. Now, the self-righteous officers of the court are trying to figure out if the assailant should be charged with murder of the baby. Common sense says she should be but unfortunately the culture murdered common sense decades ago. (Woman's Baby Brutally Taken)

I know no one will heed the warnings. Lawlessness breeds more lawlessness. God has given Christians in America over to their own devices. Calamity is coming. It is already here and it will get worse. But if God's people will humble themselves and pray, seek God's face, and turn from their wicked ways - even if the government says the behavior is okay - then there is a slim chance that God may hear our cry of repentance, He may yet forgive us of our grievous sins, and might heal our land. I fear it is too late. I pray I'm wrong.

Perfect love casts out fear! Although I agree with you I have to hold on to the fact that it is never too late. Our prayers are powerful. But we need to fast and pray for our nation. This is God's nation ... and we need to fight from victory and not for victory. We need to take it back. I am not moved by what I see, I am moved by the power of God. Keep up this fine blog Charles. I hope it lights some FIRE inside believers. We need revival badly.
