Living By Faith In Jesus Above!

images (1)  Though the fig tree do not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail, and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like hinds' feet, he makes me tread upon my high places. [Habakkuk 3:17–19]

Who would ever think that America could be in such shape as it is in today? No jobs, more people on food stamps and government help everyday, health care has gone through the roof, people loosing their homes to foreclosures, our Christian faith is being put to the test. We have people that want to kill you for being a Christian and our government appeases them by apologizing to them. Sin prevails in America. People are calling good bad and bad good. To top this all off we have a government that does not recognize God. They allow abortion on demand, recognize homosexuals as an excepted life style, and put demands on our churches and on our faith that go against our beliefs and the church of our Lord Jesus Christ. Any Christian that studies the word of God and is close to their maker can plainly see that we are in the last days of this world as we know it.  God will come to the rescue of His people.

Judgment is coming to America if there is no repentance. How  should we face the judgment of God that is coming on America? These judgments are coming against America for sure. How should the godly prepare for these tribulations (not the Great Tribulation) and calamity that is coming on us so fast? Every Christian should be asking this same question. Tribulations are coming upon this country that will be really bad. Christians may not be here doing the great tribulation but look out for other tribulations before then. Do not be fooled America can not continue down the path it is going and not expect God’s wrath. When that great city of Nineveh heard  Jonah’s warning they repented. What will America do?

How should we prepare for the coming troubles to America and How shall we endure it as Christians?  First of all, we need to take a page from Habakkuk’s book when he prays; "O Lord, I have heard the report of thee, and thy work, O Lord, do I fear. In the midst of the years renew it; in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy." Habakkuk has a sober and healthy fear of the judgment of God, but in the mist of it all he knew the mercies of God.  So should all Christians. He prays that in the midst of wrath God will have mercy on him. We all know that God will have mercy on His own today just as He did in the past. His promises to us are true.

In other words, no matter how severe the tribulations that come our way we must never stop trusting God. Even though God himself is about to judge America for all her rebellion and sin His people can be confident that in wrath God will show mercy to those who trust him and rejoice in him alone when all else fails. In thee Oh Lord do we put our trust.

When a man and a woman marry, they pledge their love and faithfulness to each other "for better or for worse, whether rich or poor, in sickness and in health, 'til death do us part." Just like that's true between husband and wife, how much more is it true between our Creature and His people?

On that solid rock (Jesus Christ) we must Stand, all other (government and leaders) is truly nothing but sinking sand. If you are not a saved soul you need to get down on your knees and repent and ask God’s forgiveness.
