THE TRUTH IS…GOD IS HOLY…MAN IS DEPRAVED…JESUS CHRIST OUR ONLY HOPE
Romans 1:18- The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
Those who know the One and Only True and living All Wise God are called to repent and pray for our country. Chronicle 7:12-14 “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people…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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Prayer: Lord forgive us for the sin which we commit and agree with daily…We have taken your provision, protection, mercy and grace for granted. We have acted as if the government and men have provided these gifts to us. We are prideful arrogant and selfish, acting as if we deserve the blessings you have bestowed upon this country. Forgive us Lord, fill us with your Holy Spirit and give us the faith to repent. It is in the Mighty Powerful Name of Jesus Christ that we pray. AMEN
