No “new law” will protect America from what is coming.
More restrictions on guns won’t stop what is coming.
Less restrictions on guns won’t stop what is coming.
Closing the borders won’t prevent it.
Refusing refugee’s won’t avert it.
More education on sharia law or the Muslim community will not save America from what is coming.
The ONLY thing that will protect America from what is coming is RETURNING to the commands of God; returning to a nation dedicated unto him.
The SINGLE GREATEST threat to America’s national security is LIVING IN STARK CONTRAST TO HOW THE WORD OF GOD SAYS TO LIVE.
Look at what God says a nation will look like who does NOT follow him with their whole hearts…
Deuteronomy 28:15 & 43 (NIV) If you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you… The alien who lives among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower… He will be the head, but you will be the tail.
Sounding familiar yet? Wait…
God’s judgments get more detailed for the nation who leaves their roots.
Deuteronomy 28:25 (NIV) The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies. You will come at them from one direction but flee from them in seven
Deuteronomy 28:49-50 (NIV) The Lord will bring a nation against you from far away, from the ends of the earth, like an eagle swooping down, a nation whose language you will not understand, a fierce-looking nation without respect for the old or pity for the young.
A nation from FAR away? A nation whose language we don’t understand? A fierce looking nation with no respect for even the old or young? Our ENEMIES?
And WHY would God allow all of these things to happen? Once again…
Deuteronomy 28:15 (NIV) If you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you… all these curses will come on you and overtake you.
I want to make this very clear. What we are seeing today in America is the start of God’s Judgment for a nation who once loved and served Him. And as the old saying goes, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”
The SINGLE greatest threat to America’s national security is not THE EMP bomb, a solar flare, a cyber-attack or the grid collapsing in any magnitude. It’s not the refugee crisis or ISIS infiltrating our southern borders. It isn’t North Korea’s outlandish threats or the Iran nuclear deal being passed, giving them a clear path to develop nuclear weapons.
The SINGLE greatest threat to America’s National Security is, once again… Living in stark contrast to how our God says to live!
GOD will protect a nation who lives for Him.
HE will uplift and protect the nation that lives for Him!!!
GOD WILL put a canopy of protection over the countries that serve Him! A canopy that NO man can break!
No enemy can penetrate the canopy of God’s protection if we are living for HIM!!
I DON’T CARE what ISIS, AL QAEDA, North Korea, Iran, Russia, or China WANTS to do. They will have to deal with GOD!!
Look at what God says a nation will look like who DOES follow him with their whole hearts:
Deuteronomy 28 (NIV)
Blessings for Obedience
If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:
…The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven…
God will uphold the national security of a country living for Him! No enemy can penetrate the canopy of God’s protection over America if we are living for HIM!!
So, I end with this…
Judgment is coming to America unless America radically repents and turns back to God and His ways. It’s time to go back into our prayer closets. It’s time to seek God again with ALL of our hearts.
Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV) You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV) 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 I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
It’s not time for compromise! It’s not time for half hearted obedience! It’s time to seek God with EVERY fiber of our being!
Let’s pray church…
