What Happens When America Shuns God?

There have been numerous instances lately where cities, schools and other civic organizations are being threatened unless they remove the 10 commandments monument, no longer say “Bless You” to someone who sneezes, and many other instances because there is a select group that seems to be the watchdog over anything “Christian” that appears to “offend them” or may offend someone else.

America was founded on God and has a long history of giving Him praise for the many blessings our country has received as it has continued to received His protective covering. The constitution purposely states there should be freedom to worship.  This strong desire to keep God as the number one priority in this country led to addressing Him in our Pledge of Allegiance and even adding the phrase that is on our currency “In God We Trust.”

For hundreds of years, this country has been unashamed and unafraid to voice publicly it’s alliance with God.  Churches have been erected without fear of retribution or violence.  God has even been allowed in chambers of judges and politicians with the knowledge that they will need Him as they make life-changing decisions that affect the rest of the country and the world as they pledge “So Help Me God.”

It is with great sadness and trepidation that we have begun to see the unfolding of what the final book in the Bible, the book of Revelations has prophesied:  America has begun to shun God!  It has become apparent in everything.  From decisions to no longer allowing the Pledge of Allegiance, to removing any reference to God in public offices and no longer allowing Bible studies in schools, the list has become long and languishing.

We have also begun to see the results of removing God:  As we begin to turn our backs on the Great I AM, there is now more turbulence in this world with greater potential to create harm whether it is in the form of biological warfare, artillery, disease, or prejudice.

As these events continue to churn and instill true fear into our hearts, still more are on the horizon.  Whether it is the return of the Black Plague or Leprosy that is now being found in certain parts of the world, or the plague of cancer that has affected all parts of the world, or even Ebola that has threatened every part of the world, we are beginning to see what happens when we turn our backs on this powerful One who can save us from all of that if we just acknowledge Him.

We are grieving that those whom we vote to represent us have found their way into the hands of the Deceptor who has deceived them. They believe that his agenda will make them more powerful, wealthy and invincible. They then make decisions on our behalf that place our families and us at great risk.

Is this the kind of America that we want to be known as?  Do we really believe that without REAL action, these atrocities can still be avoided?

Our God is a loving God, we know that because He has not been vengeful as He sees what is happening to His name. He must be standing by watching this, grieving and in real pain.  He gave up His Son for us and this is what He gets in return?  How quickly we forget.  Yes, we are reminded during Easter and Christmas of what God has done for us, but sadly, those events are marred with the commercialization and commerce of the Deceptor.

There have always been natural disasters that is true.  But, if we truly want our country to continue to be divinely protected wouldn’t it make sense for us to gather together and create the revivals of old where people would be peacefully assembling to cry out in prayer for forgiveness and healing?  Shouldn’t we begin to publicly show that He is still our God and that although we are giving to “Caesar” what is his, we must not allow God to be forgotten.  Our God is a jealous God.  We must entrust in Him our faith and not forget that He still holds the reigns to the future of this country, no matter what the deceptive efforts are of those who want us to believe otherwise.

Let’s take our churches outside of the brick and mortar.  Let’s become the church of God that is a power to be reckoned with.  Let’s refrain from becoming so busy “in” the church that we neglect the very influences “outside” of the church that will slowly but surely permeate those walls.

It is time to build upon the rock that was started years ago.  This rock should not look like a large, glamorous building; rather this is the rock of faith that we stand on and with the “armor” that we have been promised,we become the soldiers who PUBLICLY, profess His name, our worship and His glory.  It is only then, that we can stop the continual eroding of this great country that could soon be turned into rubble.

    He still has a place for America in His heart, because of His Covenant with some of our Fathers; however His children must not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, wake up and listen to His leadings and act on His promptings.

    The Bible over and over again shows cultures and people being overturned to the thing they fear or hate, Roman 1 on a personal level. On a nation or culture level whole countries that have declined as they “left their first love”. What we see in USA today is our nation being turned over to the enemy of our souls. Clear and simple, root cause “money and the love of it.” Rev 18 I believe has a verse on the nations of the earth will be deceived by pharma, and what is the modern USA diet but body harming factory altered drugs to hook you and make it look appealing and taste good by have < 1/10 the nutrition of the real thing (Joel Fuhrman quote, http:tinyurl.com/lfm-Fuhrman). So it all makes sense, nations hate us, but want to be just like USA from a convenience POV. Look at the rise of multi-national fast food now in nations that allow it, their health is going just like USA. Solution just like children of Israel turn back to God in everything (just as you say in this article), including diet. Will USA turn back to God, no there will be a revolution in this country over that.

    Thank you so much for this article, it truly touched my heart and makes me more determined to stand for truth. The enemy also is tearing families apart, children are becoming more and more disrespectful toward parents just as the bible predicted. My heart is broken over my son who lets the enemy deceive him and I can not make him see the path he is heading too. The Church needs reviving and that is us. Battles have been won on our knees in prayer and I am reminded that this is the only way we can win no matter how hard the battlefield is. Thank you again for this wonderful article.

    blessings,

      Take heart and keep praying for your son as I do for my 3 children. The Word of God promises that if mothers pray for their children, they and their household will be saved, even if it isn’t in your lifetime. I hang on to this promise daily and thank the Lord every day that He is working in their lives to draw them closer to Him. To God be the Glory

    The Article was very good. You know that you just put a bull”s eye on your chest and they will be coming after you. If we don’t stand up now, we will not have the right to stand up at all. The truth is, THE MOST HIGH wins in the end whether these deceitful people and scoffers like it or not. Praise be to THE MOST HIGH.

    As a beliver in God and Christ, it is impossible for me to offend non belivers one half as much as their way of thinking is offensive to me. Let’s remind them that that they just think they are taking control and to get over themselves.

  8. Thank you for sharing your insight in “what happens when America shuns God”. I have just read this morning in my bible reading daily devotions about the impending invasion of Jerusalem by king Nebuchadnezzar as was predicted by Jeremiah the prophet in Jeremiah chapter 32. And the reason for the Jewish captivity? Yes, for turning their backs on God! What a striking resemblance to what is seen in America today! But all is not lost as God has prepared a people for Himself who will go through the impending conflicts and challenges in these end times just before He comes. The remnant true followers of God will persevere as stated in Revelation 12:17: “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” We just need to look back in Bible history to see what is being repeated today. The difference is that we are living in the end times. So we need to be ready to meet our God, the Lord of Hosts.

  9. AMEN AND AMEN to everything that was said. God’s patience is wearing thin. I can hardly believe what has happened to our nation in the past 50 years. We should be so alarmed! When America begins to wain on our friendship with Israel, “the apple of God’s eye,” well, we can see the results happening….
    Praise God I and my family are saved and looking up, expecting the Rapture at any time!!

    Outstanding article. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and insight.

    As a kid, I never paid too much attention to the daily morning recitations that began my school day…I guess I took the Lord’s Prayer, Pledge of Allegiance and ‘My Country ‘Tis of Thee’ for granted. How I wish I hadn’t! How I wish my grandkids could take part in these cherished, but now sadly forbidden, tributes. God help us…

  12. Thank you so much for your Article, it is definitely true. With all due respect though, I think that this forgetfulness of God is due to the lack of people obeying God’s Ten Commandments specially the fourth which tells us to remember the sabbath day to keep it holy. If the world would have done that from the beginning there would not be any atheist or unbeliever. The sabbath of The Lord (Saturday) reminds us that God is our Creator and Redeemer. It commands us to cease our labours and rest in The Lord . What a blessing the world misses out on when they go on through life day after day in a round of ceaseless activity with no thought of God who loves them so much that He gave His Son to redeem them.! Tragedy indeed, may God help us to be faithful to Him till the end when He will come to take us home . Hallelujah what a day that will be!!!!!

  13. Great article, however you forgot to mention that most people have already forgotten God to a certain degree because they only keep 9 of the commandments. The 4th commandment is the Sabbath (Saturday) not Sunday which most people keep. God did not change the day of worship, man did back in Constantine’s day. We have to go back to honor God with all the commandments

    Who is willing to stand up for God

      I agree that this is a good, thought provoking article that helps us to wake up to the freedoms we are loosing because of our tolerance of false religions, and our lack of true representation of a living relationship with the One True God. Let’s not fall back into bondage to the Law ourselves, further distancing ourselves from the world who needs to see Jesus in us. Did He not say that the Sabbath was made for Man, and not the opposite that Man was made to conform to the Sabbath? During the course of my life, I have had many days of the week as my Sabbath. The Spirit of The Word of God says that Man cannot have “the abundant Life” when He or She works everyday of the week. So, make sure to not miss what our Lord is saying to us, so we can effectually reach our world with the Love of God, and give them something to want to follow us to meet our Savior. Not tasteless religion.

      Grace and Peace to Y’all

    My thanks to all of the above comments. We do live in a dangerous and scary world. Keep your chins up and continue to look to Jesus for our strength and don’t be afraid to speak up and praise our Lord !

  15. This article was a testament of faith about our freedom to worship and practice our faith free from the oppressions and influence of a nonexistent State that was not formed by our Founding Fathers. It was not about the ten commandments. It was about the powers and influences of deception against worship and our Founding Fathers constitutionally protected religious freedom. The message that often gets lost is the one clearly defined by our Founding Fathers as far as The United States Constitution is concerned. The message was simple and has been twisted. Our politicians have fallen prey to this deception. SEPERATON of CHURCH and STATE. What was clearly meant and intended was “The State will not intrude upon the Church.” The government is an entity where the Church is the people and the people have the freedom to worship. Now the church will influence the State as the States representatives are and have been men and women of faith. those elected people govern by their convictions. Faith is clearly a conviction. You can not separate a mans/womans faith or convictions from the man/woman. So in essence the State will be and should be influenced by the faith of its citizens. Otherwise the false interpretation of the Separation of Church and State would require that public officials be atheist or simply men and women of no faith. Now that the facts are cleared up it would not be illegal for a School to exercise faithful values. It would not be illegal for a State facility (or Federal) to display a Christmas Tree or Nativity scene or a Cross. We must remember that we are first a Christian Nation. According to Christ the Church is founded upon the faith of the people. “Upon this rock I build my Church.” says the Lord. The rock upon which he builds his church is FAITH. Now if we allow our Faith to be taken from us we have no Church and no identity. If that happens we are not the Nation of our Founding Fathers. We are a morally bankrupt society without freedom of religion and definitely not the nation that was constitutionally formed constitutionally with Separation of Church and State.
    Now again one will say, “We do not forbade you from following your religion or faith. We simply forbade you from publically exercising your rights to display or practice your Faith on public lands and properties.” Again where does the constitution say this? this is an attempt to silence the Church. The constitution does not say you must be a Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Muslim, Jew, atheist, Moorman, Quaker, Amish, Catholic, Jehovah Witness, Scientologist or heathen. It says that the STATE will not rule the Church. Without saying it does say the Church will rule the STATE. How? As mentioned before our elected officials have beliefs and those beliefs are reflected in the legislation they are convicted to support or enact. A politician that says he is not convicted by his belief is a liar. You ever hear that about a politician before?
    Many of us say we are of Faith but we don’t follow our faith. We are weak in our faith. We may claim a Church but we have no Church. You can also claim no Church or faith at all. You can do that or be that way in America but don’t you dare impose your Faith or lack of it on the rest of us. thus the intent of the Founding Fathers on we Christians who formed this great nation under God. All are welcomed and have the freedom to choose their religion. The Lord himself does not desire anyone who does not seek and desire him of their own Free Will.

  16. WE AS CHRISTIANS MUST STAND ON THE WORD OF GOD AND NOT LET SATAN TRY AND RULE THIS EARTH. WE ARE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS OF THE BIBLE AND JESUS IS COMING SOON!!! IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO PRAY AND READ THE BIBLE EVERYDAY. THE WORD OF GOD IS A TWO EDGE SWORD AGAINST THE DEVIL. PEOPLE HAVE TO BE AWARE THAT SATAN KNOWS THE BIBLE BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS.

  17. Carol Conrad Moore August 30, 2014

    This is an awesome article which gives us HOPE AND PROMISE, but since our USA has turned our backs on God, we may see a revolution in this country. The ones with no hope, are ‘given over to a reprobate mind as evidenced in our society’. Hard to believe what has changed just in our short life span! May God help and lead us back to HIM!

  18. What a powerful article. Amen and amen
