O’ America, What Has Happened To You?

O’ America, you were built upon religious principles which are now covered over.  What has happened to America?  It is awash in material goods that it cannot afford, steeped in immorality, drowning in a debt that it cannot pay and killing its young before they are born.  What has happened to the light set upon the mountain?

 
O’ America, money is our false god, it will be our downfall.  We will drown in the very money which we print so plentifully. The dollar will become the laughing stock of the nations.  The mighty dollar will be like a sick man who has no strength.
 
O’ America, we focus on our wallets – the work of the enemy of God. In the past, we focused on protection on the unborn and on marriage; becoming holy in His Eyes by living the 10 Commandments and being a moral nation.  To the extend we do this is the extent God can help us mend our economy and social sicknesses.
 
O’ America, we are dying from within, unable to reverse the tide that has been unleashed by us turning to the secular. Our roots were religious, based upon the strength of the Churches and the high morality of our people, in the sanctity of life and the holiness of marriage. We guarded our young against pornography.  We flourished in the discipline of our life and in the discipline of our spending.
 
O’ America, our problems are of our own making; the foundation of which is the rejection of God’s love.  The enemy has gained the hearts of many of our sons and daughters; including those with much responsibility and influence; our lawmakers, and those in the media and the entertainment industry.  They are like Judases, ready to sell us out, ready to betray us for their own interests.
 
O’ America, now, we want our freedoms, even those that violate God’s Will. We do not want to be a nation under God. We do not want to know God’s Will.  We want to divorce God and go our separate way.  And then in our stupidity we ask, “Why do we have so many problems?”  How foolish and blind we are, America.  We will reap what we have sown while God cries tears of sadness for His beloved children.
 
O’ America, we have listened to the wrong voice – that of God’s enemy.  We must return to the generosity and sacrifice that made us great.  We must return to the truth that guided us – that Truth is God.
 
O’ America, another movement must stir. New voices must be raised that proclaim, “We will not turn our backs on God.  We will not renounce our Christian roots.  We will not have our identity changed.  We began as a Christian nation.  We prospered as a Christian nation.  We will only continue to exist if we remain a Christian nation”.  Stop holding back.  Come out of hiding.  Speak up.  Confront this erasing of Christian identity.  We are the majority.  Our voice should be strong. We need to take back our nation; reclaim our house, before it is too late.

Hi Mr.Groceries

For the past couple of days here at home we have been talking about how America has failed.

Your post is very good and well put together. You should share this with as many people as you can because this

is better and more sincere then any of those so called presidential state of the union addresses. :thumbsup: :amen:

I thank all of you for the welcome !!  I post some things that are "controversial" shall we say - they are not meant to be taken personally by anyone - and hopefully a few will be moved by the Holy Spirit to reflect on one thing or another. We all have room to grow - and it's not easy as I am sure you know.

I did post it elsewhere and some disagree with me on the state of America - they see things differently - it has made for a very lively discussion in a few other places.

I am still trying to understand. How do you do that from behind a locked door?

 putting aside human relationships and the world allows me to focus entirely on God - it's much easier to listen for and hear His will for me and carry it out.

 

My life consists of two elements (other than doing the obvious, such as keeping a clean and orderly residence, cooking etc.) 

 

Work - I work on the internet throughout the day and evening; making posts and answering questions. My postings are of 2 types - helping others reflect and meditate on the need for spiritual growth in their lives and the other is to help prepare them for the second coming of Jesus (which I believe will happen within 10 years).

 

Our Lord has given me more than 4,300 followers on G+ (Google Plus), more than 3,000 on Linkedin - I post in 8 Christian/Catholic forums and on several other smaller sites. I, on average, make 5 to 7 posts per day on G+ and Linkedin. I read prophetic messages each day and meditate on them and sometimes incorporate their ideas and warnings into my posts. The post above is a good example of this.

 

Prayer - when I am not working on the internet I speak with God, listen to Him, and meditate on many different things; such as my relationship with Him, my frustration over not reaching more people, my being rejected by some and how sad that is - drawing parallels between my hopes and disappointments with Jesus' life and many, many other things - I could meditate on reality and talk to God for eternity.

 

Yes, it's a difficult life to lead, my humanity yearns for human love and companionship but God has called me to give this up for a much greater good to serve Him and my brothers and sisters. I am happy, content, and at peace with my life, as difficult as it is I would want it no other way. 

 

 
O Good Jesus, shelter me from the evil one, shed Thy dew upon me to calm my soul, and dwell in me fully, that I may wholly love Thee. Amen

Oh LORD Jesus~! My LORD And My God~!

 

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. Psalms 51:10-12

 

Fill Me With Thy Love

 

Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee. Psalms 51:13

 

And Let Me

 

And I said, My strength and my hope is perished from the LORD: Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall. My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me. Lamentations 3:18-20

 

Abide

 

This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:21-23

 

In You

A Psalm of David.

23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
    He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
    for his name's sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.

My question too.  How do you "fix" anything when you choose not to interact with others.  I have asked this too, how do you   preach the gospel from behind locked doors and shut out the world?.  The word say we are in the world not of it.  but it also says we are to go into the word and preach the gospel.  It's not easy if it was every Christian would be doing it.  I have come to a point in my life where I want to live in a way that people won't even have to ask if I"m a Christian, they will know by my actions and words.  I want to see revival but I can't see it happen or be part of it if i choose to hide behind a locked door.  That is just my opinion.

Surely, God will  judge America...who knows, perhaps the judgement is already appointed and will unfold very soon. Welcome to Worthy MrGroceries!
