When A Nation Thumbs Its Nose At God

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5-20)

All decent law abiding citizens need to look at America and its present way of life to see how our country is completely thumbing its nose at our God and His warnings to us through His Word. The degree of apostasy in America is totally shocking and unbelievable. Most people in our country do not know what sin is or to make it plainer the difference between right and wrong.
When a person is too lazy to work in our country it is called good and the reward for this laziness is with welfare and government benefits while the hard working people who work and provide for their families and some work enough to become rich and that is called bad. Because the liberals in this country say this is bad, the rich people and the person who works hard every day must be taxed to give their money to people who don’t work because that is what is good and right. The lazy in America get free everything from free food to free cell phones, free rent, free everything and it is called good by our government. This is the opposite of scriptural teaching that if a man doesn’t work, he doesn’t eat. This does not mean we are not to help the ones who are truly poor.
In today’s America if you are a pure virgin, a chaste woman you are seen as bad and a women who dresses and acts the part of a whore is good. Her pictures are on TV, magazines, and you name it. An unwed mother gets all kinds of benefits from the government because she has had a child and is not married. The government calls this good, and a woman who is married and trying to make ends meet are not given the same breaks because she is married and this is bad, what is wrong with that picture? This is not putting down the single woman but the system by which the government penalizes the married women. It has nothing to do with the woman personalty. People thought the Marlboro man was good and the man taking his children to church was bad. Marriage that was once solely between man and woman is now called bad because homosexual or same-sex marriage must have the same right. It is called good. Even though the scriptures call it sin people and our government are calling it good. Churches are marrying same sex people and calling it good when the Bible calls it sin in other words bad. God’s judgment is coming and soon.
Killing some types of animals, birds, whales, etc is called bad and evil but the murdering of innocent, babies that are still in the mother’s womb by abortion is called good. Not long ago a lion was shot in Africa and there was a public cry against it. A gorilla was shot in a zoo to protect a child and the public once again cried out, calling it bad. At the same time we were told of unborn baby parts being sold by Planned Parent Hood and that was good. America will most certainly pay for this crime against our Lord. America is now embracing transgenders and calling it good.  What will be next? Will it be sex with animals or being married to an animal? Do not laugh at that statement because whoever thought that a man would be allowed to use a woman’s bathroom? We are fast becoming a nation without God!
America is on a downward spiral with sin and as we all can see it is picking up speed as it goes. America, as a nation considers its self to be  civilized, and educated, but the truth is she is spiritually dead.
And this is just scratching the surface. So with America embracing evil and shunning good, is it any wonder we have so many problems today? How could we have so quickly changed from a nation embracing God and morality to a country literally begging to be destroyed by sins that are being called good? The scripture at the top of this article needs to be repeated “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Applying The Blood

Image result for applying the blood of jesus

And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye [are]: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy [you], when I smite the land of Egypt.

Without a doubt, this has to be one of the most single over looked verses in the whole Bible, but one of the most important scripture in the whole Bible. It was not the self-worthiness of the Hebrews, it was their faith in that blood. God did not say “when I see you, or, when I see your good works”, or “When I see how much money you have” or “When I see how important you are” nor did He say, “when I see where you go to church”, but He said “When I see the blood” Has the blood been applied to the door post of your heart? Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?Are you washed in the blood of the lamb? Applying the Blood of Christ to your life is a very important matter just as it was for the Hebrews when they were in Egypt. The blood applied to the door post meant that the Hebrew's faith and their trust was in the blood of that Lamb. The blood that was applied then, was meant to be a token of the ONE to come, a symbol of the one who would redeem man kind by the shedding of His life Blood. The Hebrews in that day were facing many hardships (as we are today) by the hands of the Egyptians. You do not have to read between the lines to see the hunger, hardship, sickness, and the poor quality of life that the Hebrews (God's Children) were facing, and just the plain brutality of their Egyptian masters. The Hebrews had a hard life. But deliverance came! It was when they applied the blood.

It did not matter if the house was new, old, large, or small. The blood had to be applied to the door post. It did not matter how far they could trace their lineage back or if it was perfect, or they went to the synagogue often, or what religious ceremonies they took part in. All that mattered was applying that blood. The Hebrews may have not known much or understood of what was taken place, but this one thing they did know if they were to be safe that night, the blood had to be applied and that was all that mattered. The Blood of the Lamb and the word of the Lord formed that foundation of the Hebrews peace and safety that night. All that was under the cover of that blood were made safe, just as it is now to all that are saved and under the cover of the precious blood of Jesus.

This story takes us to the very heart and true meaning of Christianity. It is the story and true meaning of the cross. We, as Christians, must see our full redemption in the blood of Jesus because our full redemption rests in that precious Blood. Our simple forgiveness of sin rest on that. We either trust it or we do not trust it.

If our nation wants deliverance, from the evil that has come upon it, then it should take a page out of the history that is found here. We must look to Jesus. The one who died on Calvary, long ago, and shed His Blood that we might be saved. We must apply the blood of Christ to our hearts and to the door post all across America, in our homes, schools, government buildings, our churches, because it is nothing but the blood of Jesus that can save us. What can wash away the sins of this nation? Nothing but the Blood of Jesus!

Here is how you, this nation, and I can be safe and secure from all that alarms us. We can read in Revelations 12:11 this: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death.” We overcome Satan by the blood of the lamb! The blood on the door post was evidence of the Hebrews faith in that they were commanded to do it and they did it without question. To most people, this would be a laugh, a joke, a fairy tale, But to a servant of God
