“Like the nations the LORD destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the LORD your God.” Deuteronomy 8:20

    We are now less than two weeks away!  We are closing in on the most important election in recent history, if not in the history of our nation.  The candidates for President have dramatically different views about our future.  Yet, even amid such serious times, there still seems to be a sense of unconcern among many people.  Where are we?  What are we doing?  Are we really concerned about the direction of our nation?  Remember, it is not just about us but also what your children and grandchildren will face in the days to come.  You would think that our churches would be filled and our altars full as Christians humbly cry out to God.  Hopefully, that is going on in some places but it doesn’t appear to be widespread in every church.  The pastors I know have not commented about the overflowing crowds and the overwhelming desire to seek God.

    The enemy has certainly not slowed down in his efforts to cast his influence upon the understanding of mankind.  The world for sure, and sadly our own nation, seems to be expanding the anti-God, anti-Bible and anti-religion sentiment.  One real issue of this election seems to about religious freedom.  However, in many ways, religious freedom has been a contributor to our current situation.  How?  First, let me say that I am all for religious freedom.  Yet, it seems that with religious freedom, as with all freedom, comes an attitude whereby we take it for granted.  We see that attitude very clearly in several areas in our nation.  Maybe we have become much too passive and God is allowing persecution to jolt us back to the real priorities for life.

    As we look to our election in a couple of weeks, please be in constant prayer for our nation.  Folks, we are falling at an alarming rate and it all stems from neglecting our Christian roots and heritage.  Please make every effort to vote.  From what I have seen and read, there were some 40 million Christians who failed to vote in the last election.  That is shameful!  How can we expect to make any impact if we fail to exercise our right to vote?  These are very troublesome times, but we know that God is still in full control.  What does he desire from us?  The same that He desired of His chosen nation Israel.  “He has shown you, O man, what is good.  And what does He require of you?  To act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.”  (Micah 6:8) The truth is so easy to understand that even children can comprehend it.  Either we walk with God and experience His blessings or we abandon God and are destroyed.  Which path are we currently following?  May your week be blessed as we follow God in all our ways and pray exceedingly for our nation!

                                                                                                                                We love you,
