 Re: Evil days are here!

You know, with all of the calamity recently; fires, tornadoes, floods...and the collapse of the Economy...very little is heard about turning back to Jesus. Repenting toward God.

Think of the Congress of America. When is the last time you have heard that America's problems are directly the cause of her SIN issue by any congressman?...or any public person?

IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME.....will humble themselves and pray....THEN....

America is turning into a God hating nation very, very fast with lots of religion. We need to pray.

in all love and respect, to expect congress, congressmen, or any public person to speak the Words of Life unto a dying nation, thats crawling to the Day of the Lord, would be like expecting a toddler to decode the Rosseta Stone.

and remember this: 12 pray, one speaks, all die.

i love you brother, dont be mad at me, just had to say what is on my heart....i feel it, storms a-coming, and its good...even the godless japanese with their shinto samaurai code had it down with this saying:

"Death, light as a feather.
Duty, heavier than a mountain".

hey, even balaam's donkey spoke, right?

 Re: Congress recommended

"Think of the Congress of America."


Brothertom your mention of congress was appropriate. Leaders influence the people they govern. And they reflect them as well.


'The first national government of the United States, was convinced that the "public prosperity" of a society depended on the vitality of its religion. Nothing less than a "spirit of universal reformation among all ranks and degrees of our citizens," Congress declared to the American people, would "make us a holy, that so we may be a happy people."'

- from Religion and the Founding of the American Republic, Library of Congress Website.


What our first Government recommended to the people continued to be echoed afterwards. But as echos fade the longer they continue from their first sound, they've become almost if not completely, silent now.

Here's one that must have sounded very clear at the time, from the Nation's great emancipator:

Proclamation 97 - Appointing a Day of National Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer
March 30, 1863

By the President of the United States of America
A Proclamation


Whereas the Senate of the United States, devoutly recognizing the supreme authority and just government of Almighty God in all the affairs of men and of nations, has by a resolution requested the President to designate and set apart a day for national prayer and humiliation; and

Whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord;

And, insomuch as we know that by His divine law nations, like individuals, are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war which now desolates the land may be but a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole people? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.

It behooves us, then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.

Now, therefore, in compliance with the request, and fully concurring in the views of the Senate, I do by this my proclamation designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting, and prayer. And I do hereby request all the people to abstain on that day from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite at their several places of public worship and their respective homes in keeping the day holy to the Lord and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.

All this being done in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope authorized by the divine teachings that the united cry of the nation will be heard on high and answered with blessings no less than the pardon of our national sins and the restoration of our now divided and suffering country to its former happy condition of unity and peace. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the city of Washington, this 30th day of March, A. D. 1863, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty-seventh.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

By the President:

WILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State .

- from The American Presidency Project

 In Britain too...

It's no better across here in the UK. There is as much godlessness in some churches as in the world.

I pray for discernment for us all - there are a multitude of voices speaking all kinds of things to people, telling them what they want to here rather than holding true to the Gospel of Christ. I'm alarmed at how 'loving the sinner but not the sin' has bred licentiousness such that evil behaviour is tolerated amongst those in Christian leadership, in contradiction of the pursuit of holiness.

If it grieves our hearts, how much is God grieved?
