The Bible indicates that in the last days perilous times shall come. As it
is becoming increasingly obvious, by all indications, that America is
racing toward judgment, so too is the realization that something serious
or catastrophic could easily come to our country, and we are unprepared.
Whether it be nuclear attack, economic collapse, or natural disasters,
America appears to be getting only closer to that day.
Tt is not
God who has rejected us but our nation that has continually rejected Him.
What is a pastor supposed to talk about if he cannot talk about God? Yet,
what is even more grievous than our lost freedom is that so many churches
have become apostate as they welcome immorality, mystical practices, and

When judgment comes upon America, it will not be because of
a hateful God entertaining Himself with calamity but rather because we, as

only God can give) to face the future. That means drawing strength from
God by reading His Word. Then, it means applying that Word to our lives.
My prayer is that the words of Scripture, like that from Isaiah 26 above,
will be a reality for you and me; but this can only happen as we forsake
the phony comforts of this life and trust the Lord to be our strength.
Yes, walking through this life can be heartbreaking and terrifying at
times, but as we keep our mind stayed on Him, trusting Him, we can walk
forward in His peace.
God has His best intentions in mind for us, and
He will not be prevented from accomplishing it. One thing that can give us
a sense of stability and peace of mind is knowing that even though God
allows evil to happen in the world, when we are “sealed” in Christ, He
will never leave us nor forsake us.
