As For My House

O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy. (Habakkuk 3:2)

Habakkuk knew that God was going to discipline the people of Judah for their sins and he also knew it was not going to be a good experience. The people turned from God and they were about to reap what they sowed. Habakkuk did not ask for the discipline to be removed but instead he asked for mercy and help from the Lord. He interceded for the people. He knew that they had to reap what they sowed but he prayed for God to have mercy. What a great man of God! What love that he had in his heart for the sinful people of that time!

Just as Habakkuk knew that God was going to discipline His people in that day, as Christians living in America in today’s world, we must know and realize that God will do the same in this age also. America will reap what she has sown. America as a whole cannot condone abortions or homosexuality as a life style and expect God to turn His head. America has turned her back on the One that made her a truly great nation and a leader of the free world. We have removed God from our schools, our court rooms, and from every part of our society. We have homosexuals behind some of the pulpits in our churches, we have homosexuals being married in our churches, and also joining our churches as members. Sin is not being preached anymore.

Do not think that nothing is going to happen or judgment from God will not come because it will. All through the Bible judgment came to countries that rebelled against God. America is no different.

As Habakkuk pleaded in his day in his day for the Lord to revive His work so should we plead and ask for Him to revive His work in our nation and in our people. Our nation needs God to survive. God’s judgment is coming on America soon because her sins are mounting up. Those of us that pray must intercede for God’s mercy on our nation and ask for our country to be restored. The answer is a simple one. It is the same as it was thousands of years ago. “
If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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. (2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV)
Famine, war, disobedience, plagues, and sickness are coming to America and she had better wake up.
I will soon reach my sixty eighth birthday and I have never seen America in the shape that it is in. What was sin 50 years ago and hid in the closets and bedroom of sinners is now in the open and called another life style.
The Cross and the meaning behind it is lost to most Americans. They live in a world without God and they will soon pay the price. Political Correctness is damning our country.
Although the fig tree shall not blossom , neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail , and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength (Habakkuk 3: 17-18)
