America versus the Isaiah Challenge


Let us examine where we are today in America and then take what I will call the Isaiah challenge. In this country we have taken prayer out of our schools, separating us from God. Today, God cannot be mentioned in the public square unless you are the president for the most part. We have legalized abortion which is the shedding of innocent blood. See my discussion on that in “Abortion for Destruction.” Our government officials constantly lie to us. The lies they have been saying to us about the recently passed health care bill are classic. For example, how can one increase spending when one is bankrupt and somehow save money when one’s income never increases? It has been shown again and again historically, that when you raise taxes above 11%, revenues drop. Justice in our society is perverted. It is the criminal who is the victim and not the actual victim of his or her crime. People in this country and especially those in power are running to and fro through this society seeking pleasure and abandoning the principles of God. The liberals in our society are constantly calling the Christian who does follow God’s principles a Nazi. I heard it done once again on television, yesterday. The Christian is just like the Muslim extremist is a statement that is often said. Black is called white and white is called black in this society; so where do we stand with God now?

So let us read Isaiah 59:1-15. “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear: but your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has uttered perverseness. None calls for justice, nor any pleads for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity…they weave the spider’s web… (which) shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they made themselves crooked paths: whoever goes therein shall not know peace. Therefore is judgment far from us, neither does justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness. We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men…we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us. For our transgressions are multiplied before you (God), and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them; In transgressing and lying against the Lord, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward and justice stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth fails; and he that departs from evil makes himself a prey: and the Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.”

So what is God’s solution to a nation that practices these things? Let us read Isaiah 65:11-12 which says, “But you are they that forsake the Lord, that forget my holy mountain (God’s principles)…therefore will I number you to the sword, and you shall bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not hear; but did evil before my eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.” God promises us the sword which represents judgment for turning away from him. God brought Obama and his ilk into power to judge us. Judgment has already begun, and he is giving us only a short time to repent until his judgment will be irreversible. God’s people in this country must repent today which is why it is so vital this message gets out to everyone in this nation as soon as possible.

    “Today, God cannot be mentioned in the public square unless you are the president for the most part.”

    Really?

    God is stamped on every coin and every bill used in every transaction in the United States. The name “God” is spoken in every school on every day by every student taking the pledge. God is invoked in every legislature at every level on every day it is in session, usually by a member of the clergy. God is in every public oath taken by every elected official, and it is in every oath taken by every witness in every legal proceeding in this country. God is everywhere on radio and television, on multiple stations on every Sunday morning, everywhere for weeks leading up to Christmas, and on many cable stations it is 24/7. I could go on and on and on, but the point should be clear: far from never being in the public square, mention of God is everywhere in our society, especially in the public square, around which churches occupy corners and hilltops everywhere in this land.

    The utter gall of American Christians claiming false victimhood is breathtaking. They see that religion is restricted in public in ONE instance and in one instance only: that no public representative may favor one belief system over another—and claim that this is tantamount to religious persecution.

    Because not allowing government-sponsored discrimination by one belief system over others is in truth what so many Christians are weeping over: not their own persecution, but their powerlessness to persecute others. Strong evidence of this is in the great offense taken to the greeting “Happy Holidays,” which includes Christmas, but is scorned by Christians because its sporadic use means that not every holiday greeting by every person is *exclusively* Christian. How dare other belief systems be allowed to share the holidays with Christians!

    Consider me wholly unimpressed by your cry of blindness to God in our country.


    • Thank you for your comment. God has not been completely stamped out in our country is true. No one has the power to totally eradicate God. However, speaking of God with no conviction which happens in oaths of office and in courts means nothing. The President swears an oath for example in the name of God and yet has no intention of fulfilling that oath means God receives no reverence. Homosexual marriage is accepted in this country and God calls it an abomination. Abortion occurs everyday in this nation and God calls it a holocaust of our children. Those two sins alone is reason enough for God to judge this nation, and he will.
      I know of no Christian who has a problem with someone celebrating Christmas in any way they choose. The reactions are coming from not being allowed to have Christian symbols in the public square which was always the case at the beginning of this nation’s existence. The fact that you are not a Christian means you are doomed to eternal separation from God upon your death.That is the true tragedy.I have no animus towards you, but you do not know God and cannot possibly know what he thinks about what is going on in this country. You are just like the Jews in Jerusalem just before the Chaldeans surrounded the city and took it months later. You think there is no sin problem when God was warning them, and then the end came.You are going to get caught up in God’s judgment, and then you will know that God’s prophets were telling you the truth when they said, “Repent or be destroyed.”
