Unfortunately this is all true. The state of the USA is aweful. When salt and light no longer preserve and shine the world it left to itself.
Jer 5:31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love [to have it] so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
It is true that many in the church are oblivious. However I am encouraged that a remant is arising out of her midst that are serious about the condition of the church, world, and their own souls.
I heed your warning, and I too have been convicted in recent times, and daily as well. We better be about out Father' business. The time is short.
Rom 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
Sin is certainly abounding, but so is God' grace on His people. He has a people.
Rom 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to [the image of] Baal.
God always has a remant.
Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Hbr 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord [is] my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
Luk 10:2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly [is] great, but the labourers [are] few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
I believe the reason the country is in the shape it is is because we have stopped being salt and light. We are way too busy to be that. We enjoy this world way too much and would miss it if it passes away. We like our possessions, communities, jobs, friends, etc. Oh and we want to see our kids graduate, get married and raise grandkids. These are not bad things, but they have taken the place of our calling. We are called to come out from among them an to be separate. That isn't geographical, but internal. We are not of this world, as He was not of this world, but we act like we are.
Jhn 8:23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
Jhn 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
1Jo 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Mat 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
2Ti 2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of [this] life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
I would say to all of us. How settled are we? How much do we long to see His appearing? Do we really realize how far spent the day is. We are in the final hour, and we act like it is never going to end.
2Pe 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as [they were] from the beginning of the creation.
10 ¶ But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 [Seeing] then [that] all these things shall be dissolved, what manner [of persons] ought ye to be in [all] holy conversation and godliness,
2Pe 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
2Ti 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Lord wake us up. Let us not be taken unawares.
