A Question For The Church In America

“When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?"

(Psalm 11:3/NIV)

 

As we watch the spiritual foundations being destroyed in America, this is the question all who call themselves Christians must seek an answer for. David began this Psalm by saying;

 

“In the Lord I take refuge. How then can you say to me: ‘Flee like a bird to your mountain. For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.’”

(Psalm 11:1-2/NIV)

 

This has become a common occurrence. Every day a new story comes out where a Christian who merely stood for what is right is being victimized. They are fired from their jobs, sued, censored or harassed for merely standing up for what is morally right in the eyes of God. Right and wrong, good and evil are now flipped and justified by the ever-increasing wicked horde who hate the upright in heart.


We are witnessing what the prophets declared;

 

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.”

(Isaiah 5:20-21/NIV)

 

And again;

 

“How long, O Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, ‘Violence!’ but you do not save? Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrong? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and conflict abounds. Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails. The wicked hem in the righteous, so that justice is perverted.”

(Habakkuk 1:2-4/NIV)

 

David finished his psalm with these words;

 

“The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord is on his heavenly throne. He observes the sons of men; his eyes examine them. The Lord examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates. On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot. For the Lord is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.”

(Psalm 11:4-7/NIV)

 

Don’t think that the Lord does not see what is happening. As with Sodom and Gomorrah, He sees and will soon deal out His justice on our land. This is not a time to be playing church with Him. May those with ears to hear seek the Lord and draw near to Him while He can still be found. He will soon act on behalf of the righteous, and for His own name’s sake.


Know for certain that God is not mocked. Mankind reaps what they sow (Galatians 6:7). Our nation will soon go through times the likes of which we have never seen. We are in a quickly closing window of opportunity to repent.


Those who now mock God and His servants will be crying out in their great distress, but He will not answer;

 

“How long will you simple ones love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you. But since you rejected me when I called and no one gave heed when I stretched out my hand, since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke, I in turn will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when calamity overtakes you — when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you. Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me. Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the Lord, since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.”

(Proverbs 1:22-33/NIV)

 

This is a time to draw near to the Lord, separating from all that will soon be judged by Him lest we, disobedient, foolish virgin Christians be judged WITH the wicked (Revelation 18:4-5). May the righteous keep on being righteous, keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, and acting as He would lead you. He will safely guide and protect His faithful ones, making a clear distinction between those who serve Him and those who serve themselves (Malachi 3:16-18).
