Will America repent and bless God?

When I look at the moral climate here in America, When I look at God's word and read that righteousness exalts a nation, I cannot be help to think we will be like the romans when they fell. If we do not learn from history, then history will repeat itself.


There are two places I can think of where the moral climate was similar to America, found in the Bible. One is John the Baptist message to the Jews in the Roman captivity. Israel was already so immoral they were taken captive by the Romans. John the Baptist message was simple: Matthew 3:2 - "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." he said to all Jews.


To the crowd and roman soldiers he said these words: Luke 3:10-14, "And the crowds were questioning him, saying, "Then what shall we do?" And he would answer and say to them, "The man who has two tunics is to share with him who has none; and he who has food is to do likewise." And some tax collectors also came to be baptized, and they said to him, "Teacher, what shall we do?" And he said to them, "Collect no more than what you have been ordered to."Some soldiers were questioning him, saying, "And what about us, what shall we do?" And he said to them, "Do not take money from anyone by force, or accuse anyone falsely, and be content with your wages."




The other place is in Ezaekiel 18, in a immoral climate God says those that do this will live:

Ezekiel 18:4 - Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die.

Ezekiel 18:5 - "But if a man is righteous and practices justice and righteousness,

Ezekiel 18:6 - and does not eat at the mountain shrines or lift up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, or defile his neighbor's wife or approach a woman during her menstrual period—

Ezekiel 18:7 - if a man does not oppress anyone, but restores to the debtor his pledge, does not commit robbery, but gives his bread to the hungry and covers the naked with clothing,

Ezekiel 18:8 - if he does not lend money on interest or take increase, if he keeps his hand from iniquity and executes true justice between man and man,

Ezekiel 18:9 - if he walks in My statutes and My ordinances so as to deal faithfully—he is righteous and will surely live," declares the Lord God .


Jesus made it simple, He died so we would have everything we need for our life and to be godly. Because Jesus died and was raised from the dead, we do not have to choose evil. We can choose to obey the truth and the truth sets us free. Jesus promised those that are faithful to Him will never hunger or thirst. We all can share some food and clothes with others. Do you know of a congregation with a food closet or a clothes closet? Donate to them instead of goodwill.


Treat people justly or as Jesus said love your neighbor as yourself.


Father please help us to be saved in our immoral state, grant us repentance and salvation, teach us how to please you and we renounce anything not Holy, In Jesus of Nazareth's name amen
