As Christians, have you fallen for “Make America Great Again”?
It sounds good. It evokes feelings of patriotism and love for our country. But greatness is not found in power or standing or economy. It does not come from how other countries view us.
The Greatness which our Lord seeks is found here:
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
Please notice that in the aforementioned Scripture, the Word says “My people who are called by My name.” This is referring to Christians. The Lost are not called by His name.
Do you think that slaughtering the unborn and marching for the right to do so is greatness?
Do you think that having the highest court in the country change the Biblical definition of marriage to ‘between any two people’ is greatness?
Do you believe that “booing” the Creator of the Universe at a major political event is greatness?
Do you think that displaying a digital 3D image of the Arch of Palmyra (Gate to Baal’s temple) in many American cities shows greatness?
It’s Too Late For America
I’m sorry if that offends the reader. I believe this to the core of my being. America is now a land of filth and depravity. I will still vote in the coming midterms and in presidential elections in 2020 (if we are still here). But I do so out of respect for our Constitution and having the right to vote.
But I do not delude myself. I firmly believe that if true born again Christians had stood up against the evils which pervade our country now; we might not be looking at a country ready to internally combust. Edmund Burke said so well: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
But I also know that God is in complete control and He foreknew that America would be in this state today.`
We laid back and rested on our laurels, and watched as every moral fiber of America was ripped away by the Marxist/Socialist God-hating Left.
We elevated President Trump to a place he should never be. He is a man. He is not God. Yes – he has done good things for Israel and for our economy. He is even turning around the migrant policy for Christians to come to America. His predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, did not want to rescue the Christians in the Middle East. He allowed the most horrific slaughter of Christians in the history of the world.
So yes – President Trump has done good things. I will vote for him again (if we are still here) but I do not delude myself about this man.
We Need God
We need to repent. We need to pray. We need to admonish those who have fallen for a different gospel – the Social Justice gospel, to come back to the TRUE Faith: the TRUE Gospel – the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Did you know that the millions of Social Justice gospel followers are fine with abortion, transgenderism, gay marriage – etc etc ad nauseam. How are we any better than Sodom and Gomorrah, and don’t forget what the Lord did to them!
The Judiciary Hearings for Brett Kavanaugh
The Demonic judiciary hearings which are taking place today on Capitol Hill regarding the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be a member of the SCOTUS is a disgusting debacle. I tried to watch it but could not.
We know that the Leftist Marxist/Socialists who are also known as Democrats, are in such a frenzy over the possible appointment of Brett Kavanaugh. Liars are coming out of the woodwork to bring shame and dishonor to this man. Why? One reason: ABORTION.
These blood thirsty demonically possessed people even threatened the Kavanaugh family with physical harm. Can you imagine our Founding Fathers watching this unfold?
Have you seen the videos of the crazed liberals pounding on doors and women weeping over the thought that Roe Vs. Wade could possibly be overturned?
No Turning Back
Brethren, we are too far gone and there is no turning back now. We still have things we should be doing for our Lord and for the lost who have not been given over to their depraved minds by God.
We need to pray for our friends and our family for their salvation. We need to pray for our leaders; President Trump and his family and administration are in need of our prayers daily. The Left would love to kill him. I know that sounds strong but it is true.
We should always take the opportunity to share the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. NOT the Social Justice false gospel; NOT the prosperity gospel; NOT the return to Rome – let’s all be catholic false gospel. We are to share TRUTH and that will dispel the lies which Satan has propagated so well.
After all, that is what he does!
We should be yearning for the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus, every minute of every day. Look up and tell Him that you yearn for His appearing to take us from this wicked place! Brethren, this is our Blessed Hope!!
If you are holding onto things of this earth, and that is keeping you from wanting the Rapture to happen; you need to repent and examine yourself to see if you are in the faith.

Hi Geri does Jeremiah 14:11 count have we gotten to that point as the Bible Verse says? I long for the Rapture I hate this world it’s not home.
He knows His own and His own know His voice.
I am just not sure, brother.
Ok but I am looking forward to the Rapture that’s for sure.
I think about His appearing from morning till I fall asleep!
Amen once we are Raptured we will see Jesus face to face and those who have disabilites will be able to do what we can’t do on Earth like run what a day that will be I look forward to see Jesus face to face running and seeing those who went before us.
Bibleguy317, I do not think you can use er 14:11 as application to our situation today. God specifically instructed Jeremiah because He knew the the peoples prayer was in vain and empty. They were a nation about to receive judgement and discipline, as God forwarned even from the time of Moses.
I like How Dr Wiersbe puts it in his BEC:
The plea of the people (vv. 7-12). As people usually do when they’re in trouble, the Jews turned to God and prayed, but their prayers were insincere and not linked with repentance. Jeremiah had already confronted these pious hypocrites with their sins when he asked, “Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Baal, and walk after other gods whom you do not know, and then come and stand before Me in this house which is called by My name, and say, ‘We are delivered to do all these abominations?'” (Jer. 7:9-10, nkjv)
Because they couldn’t plead for help on the basis of their repentance and God’s covenant promise (Deut. 30:1-10; 2 Chron. 7:12-15), the people of Judah asked God to help them for His own name’s sake. “After all,” they argued, “it’s Your reputation that’s at stake, because we’re called by Your name.” The Hope and Savior of Israel was like a tourist in the land, unconcerned about either its present condition or its future destruction. The Lord was like a person shocked into paralysis or a warrior completely without strength.
When God disciplines us, it isn’t enough that we pray and ask for His help; anybody in trouble can do that. We must repent of our sins, judge and confess them, and sincerely seek the face of God. To weep because of the sufferings that sin causes is to show remorse but not repentance. “Rend your heart and not your garments” (Joel 2:13) was the prophet Joel’s counsel to the Jews during another time of great calamity; and David, when he sought God’s forgiveness, said, “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise” (Ps. 51:17).
God responded to the people’s words, not by sending rain, but by announcing judgment! (Jer. 14:10) For the third time, He told His servant Jeremiah not to pray for the people (v. 11; see 7:16; 11:14). His longsuffering had run out, and He was determined to punish them for their sins. They could fast, pray, and bring sacrifices, but nothing would change His mind. The nation was destined for the sword, famine, and, pestilence (14:12). The Babylonian army would bring the sword, and the results of its devastating invasion would be famine and pestilence
*BEC (Be Decisive Chapter 5) Dr. Warren Wiersbe
As for our present situation:
We are exhorted to pray for our leaders:
1 Timothy 2:1-4 (NASB)
1 First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men,
2 for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
So, should we cease to pray for our nation and its leaders? I would say no.
Should we cease to pray for our enemies? Again I’d say a resounding no.
Should we cease to pray for those who persecute us? What did the Lord Himself tell us?
I like everything you said here, except I could not bring myself to vote for Trump or Clinton. I voted for Gary Johnson, knowing it was a lost cause. Trump reminds me too much of an abusive narcissist that I have known.
But I love your title. Exactly right, the elephant and the donkey aren’t going to save us, we all need the Lamb!

Yes and Amen! Thank You for this article. I had become so discouraged by all of the evil that has taken over America that I was ready to throw in the towel, so to speak. I feel like I’ve been trying to reach the dead.. no one wants to hear the “TRUTH”. And then just this morning God spoke to me and told me to quit focusing on all of the “distractions” taking place in our country, and “focus on HIM”. We God-Fearing Christians need to kneel together and “Pray Without Ceasing” for our country. I have no doubt that we are living in the “end times”. I truly believe that our Lord and Saviour will ‘Return for His Bride’ in our lifetime. May the Holy Spirit guide us as we endeavor to do God’s Will. Come quickly Lord Jesus… come.
Time is short…We must be patient but ready.
And of course, Busy reaching the lost and building up the church. We must be living sacrifices and press on to our callings!

A FELLOW DISCIPLE OF OUR LORD AND MASTER, CHRIST JESUS—-SPEAKING IN THE SPIRIT—HOW THINGS REALLY ARE!!!
YES! Amen to all of it. And I love the title. One congressman said at a D. C. prayer gathering, “Salvation is not going to arrive on Air Force One, it will come in the Person if Jesus Christ “
