Those of you who have studied the history of this nation are aware of the fact that America was once a Christian Nation. Some of you around my age can remember when that was the case. I am sure that most of you pay close attention to what is going on in America today will agree with me that this is not true today. America has very little if any regards for the moral standard of God which is the Holy Bible. Almost half of the marriages in this country end in divorce. Almost half or more of the families in this country are headed by one parent. Thousands of babies are killed in legal abortions; some of them could have been doctors, lawyers, scientists, preachers, or other substantive people in this society. These aborted babies could have been instrumental in solving many of the complex problems of our time. Same sex marriage is abomination in the sight of God. Homosexuality has been around a long time, but we always knew that all sin is wrong. God can and will forgive you, but it is wrong. I have named a few, but there are many more indications that America has turned away from God.
The great problem is the church, the body of Christ is now following the world, and this is who this message is addressed to. When God gave me this revelation, He said this is a message of hope for my people. His command to the church is to be the salt of the earth, the light of the world, and cities on hills which cannot be hid. We are to lead the world by holding up a standard, but we have lowered our standard and we are now following the world. So many of our churches have design their programs to please people, rather than preparing people to follow God's program. Many are preaching materialistic messages that give hope of material gain without including the total Gospel message. We seem to be more concerned about getting people in church than getting church into people. I call on my colleagues to remember that God said "I am the same yesterday, the same today and will be the same forever. Before one drop of my word shall change, heaven and earth shall pass away". Let us teach the whole Bible.
There is hope in II Chronicles, God said, "If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their lands". We are asking people all over America, those who love the Lord, believe His word and love this country to pray for America. At Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, we are praying the model prayer found in Matthew 6:9-13 for 365 days. We started on January 1, 2013 and will continue thru December 31, 3013. Please pray with us.
