A TIME TO PRAY
The Holy Bible - Isaiah 1 | 08-02-12 | ealgeone

Posted on 08/02/2012 5:50:13 PM PDT by ealgeone

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is time that all God fearing believers get on their knees and pray for our country. The words of the prophet Isaiah sum it up pretty well.


TOPICS:
KEYWORDS: chickfila; prayer
I believe we are fast approaching, if we aren't already there, a point in our country's history when the stench of our sins will reach the Heavens. The question remains to be asked...will the people of God respond to God as he speaks through the prophet Isaiah:

Isaiah Chapter 1 2Listen, O heavens, and hear, O earth; For the Lord speaks, “ Sons I have reared and brought up, But they have revolted against Me. 3 “An ox knows its owner, And a donkey its master’s manger, But Israel does not know, (swap out Israel for the U.s) My people do not understand.”

4 Alas, sinful nation, People weighed down with iniquity, Offspring of evildoers, Sons who act corruptly! They have abandoned the Lord, They have despised the Holy One of Israel, They have turned away from Him.

5 Where will you be stricken again, As you continue in your rebellion? The whole head is sick And the whole heart is faint.

6 From the sole of the foot even to the head There is nothing sound in it, Only bruises, welts and raw wounds, Not pressed out or bandaged, Nor softened with oil.

Notice as God cleary points out our sins, He offers a way of reconciliation in verses 16-20 as the prophet continues:

16 “ Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Remove the evil of your deeds from My sight. Cease to do evil,

17 Learn to do good; Seek justice, Reprove the ruthless, Defend the orphan, Plead for the widow.

18 “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “ Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool.

19 “If you consent and obey, You will eat the best of the land;

20 “But if you refuse and rebel, You will be devoured by the sword.” Truly, the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

God is calling His people to repentance. Revival starts with the people of God.

Will you join me tonight in prayer before you retire for the evening as we pray for the forgiveness of our individual sins and our nations sins?

I hope this message is received as it is intended.

I have often prayed for the sins of our nation and mine own. I pray others do the same. It seems to do little good, but God is still God and He knows whether there are many or few of us. Yesterday was encouraging, anyway. I know that we need to look beyond a political solution for our salvation. I pray God raises up mighty men of God who will take a stand and not back down in these dark days and that the light that it produces lights the fires of revival here in America and spread beyond our shores.

when the stench of our sins will reach the Heavens.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

1) Abortion: If Christians **really really really** wanted to end it they would find a way to end it.

2) Government schooling: I wonder how God feels about Christians who send their children into the godless government schools. Just to cooperate in the godless classroom the child must think and reason godlessly. How could it be otherwise?

Somehow, I think Christians will be under special condemnation. Why? Because we know better.
