Choose Life

Remember Sodom and Gomorrah? God told Abraham that he would destroy these twin cities because of their debauchery. Abraham, knowing that his nephew Lot lived in Sodom, prays that God will spare the city if God can find ten righteous men living there. God agrees and sends two of his angels to search for ten righteous men in Sodom. Sadly, there was only one righteous man in Sodom, Abraham's nephew, Lot.

So God brought Lot and his family out of Sodom, and the twin cities were destroyed by fire and brimstone. God removed his divine protection from Sodom and Gommorrah; immediately the cities were destroyed. Only three people survived that holocaust, Lot and his two daughters. As they huddled in a cave above the burning cities, they believed they were the only people left on earth. In arrogance, they believed that because Sodom had been destroyed, then the whole world ceased to exist.

Americans feel that same kind of arrogance. We believe that we are the 'center of the earth' and that everything revolves around us. Since this country's inception, we have been protected by the favor of God, but that favor has become to us a right instead of a privilege.

While Katrina and Rita rage in the South, lawyers are fighting in the North against teaching intelligent design in Dover schools. While Osama is plotting his next act of terrorism in Pakistan, our courts in the West are writing decisions to eliminate the words "under God" from our pledge. While 'gun runners' from South America are crossing our borders with WMD's our courts in the North are allowing same sex marriage.

Read the prophecies in the Bible - is America mentioned at all? America is not mentioned once in the prophecies. If you believe that the Bible is the Word of God and the prophecies are a true and accurate account of the End Times - then where is the America?

Turn away from the things of the world and pray. Pray for our country. Pray for our leaders - regardless of whether you believe in them - pray for them. Pray that God will enter Osama bin Laden and turn his heart from hatred to love. Pray for our courts and pray for our children. There is so little time to pray.

"Whom will he teach knowledge, and to whom will he explain the message? Those who are weaned from the milk, those taken from the breast? For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little." Nay, but by men of strange lips and with an alien tongue the LORD will speak to this people, to whom he has said, "This is rest; give rest to the weary; and this is repose"; yet they would not hear. Therefore the word of the LORD will be to them precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little; that they may go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken." Isaiah 28: 9-13 RSV

" As often as it passes through it will take you; for morning by morning it will pass through, by day and by night; and it will be sheer terror to understand the message. " Isaiah 28:19 RSV

" I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live, " Deuteronomy 30:19 RSV
