Will America Be Left Desolate?

"What will be the sign of your coming and the end of the age? [Matthew 24:3]
Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.          [Matthew 23:38]

Jesus told the people in who lived in Jerusalem, in that day: "Behold your house is left unto you desolate" The word desolate means to be abandoned,wasted,derelict, devastated, and ravaged. Jesus words, that He, spoke to the people of Jerusalem, in that day, came to pass in 70 A.D. Jerusalem and its temple were destroyed by the Roman Army. Jesus gave the reason for the overthrow in Matthew 23:37: "Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou killest the prophets and stonest them which are sent unto thee. How often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings and ye would not!"
In this verse we can plainly see that the Lord takes notice of what the people in Jerusalem were doing to His prophets and His people. We must take note that nothing escapes the Lord's eyes and sooner or later all will be held accountable. The same goes for America. We will all be held accountable for our actions. 

We have to ask our self this question: "Will America's house be left desolate?" The majority of the population in America have rejected Jesus and His Word. The turning away from God's word, the violence and corruption that we are seeing in our society are fruits of that rejection. Homosexuals have their own rights, we kill unborn babies by the millions, a sky rocketing divorce rate, adultery and fornication, and more and more churches are closing their doors or have give place to strange doctrines. The list could go on. America is marching down the road to destruction, and has but one hope. That hope is Jesus Christ! America must repent and turn back to God!

There is a story in the Book of Jonah about God's plan to destroy a wicked city named Nineveh . Before the destruction came God sent a warning through the prophet Jonah. The wicked city, from the king down heeded the warning from Jonah, they repented, and turned back to God. God responded in mercy and that wicked city was spared from God's wrath. Will America follow the same path of repentance in theses last days or will America's House be left desolate, abandoned by God and His mercy? Will America be like Sodom? From the president on down  the people, in America, must get on their knees and call out to God!

Nineveh was a "Great City", but could not discern between their left or right hand. Through out the Bible God demanded repentance. Repentance demands that a person sees their self as they are, "A SINNER". Until that happens no one can truly repent. The people of Nineveh listened, from the king on down, and believed, because they heard the word of God preached to them. Without his preaching there would have been little hope for that city. They had faith in Jonah's preaching. So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17) 

As with all true born again believers my prayer is: "Dear God please spare America! For just fifty righteous people (one in each state, Lord will you spare America? Will you spare that which was once so proudly called the home of the brave and the land of the free? You dear God once shed your Amazing Grace on us."  It is time for America to realize this and Repent!
