Hosea 4:1-3 says “1. Hear the word of the LORD, you Israelites, because the LORD has a charge to bring against you who live in the land: “There is no faithfulness, no love, no acknowledgment of God in the land. 2. There is only cursing, lying and murder, stealing and adultery; they break all bounds, and bloodshed follows bloodshed. 3. Because of this the land mourns, and all who live in it waste away; the beasts of the field and the birds of the air and the fish of the sea are dying.”
Although this was God’s indictment of Israel, the charges surely apply to us as well. We are becoming a faithless nation, allowing abominations against the Lord. We have no love for one another. Oh granted we do love some of our friends and most if not all of our families, but what about the stranger, or our neighbors?
And most of all, we have no acknowledgement of God in our country. The powers that be don’t want us to pray in our schools, or our public events; they don’t want “In God We Trust” or the Ten Commandments printed anywhere in a public place. If you chose to believe, do it in private, for we don’t want to hear about your God.
Instead of acknowledging God in our lives, we curse, lie, murder, steal and commit adultery at the drop of a hat. Because of all that we do to ignore God, this country of ours will mourn and waste away.
Just as the Israelites were called to repent, so are we. The difference being that we still have time to escape God’s wrath. For the Israelites it was too late.
If you look around you and notice all the evil being done by our government “for our good”, you will realize that we are on a very slippery slope. Our government acts on their own behalf, not on behalf of the people. They do not act in our best interests or our wishes, they just line their own pockets and the pockets of their friends.
I keep seeing polls that say 86% of Americans believe in a “higher power”; that’s a pretty large majority. Just yesterday I read that the President’s approval rating was 45%, obviously not a majority. So let the majority impeach the minority, lets fire those in Congress that work for themselves and not us, and let’s save this country from downfall.
We ARE the majority, let’s boot the minority.
