Today is July 4, 2021, the 245th birthday of our beloved country. This date marks the historical moment when we as a nation were no longer under British rule. Happy Birthday America! With all our problems, our divisions, our demands for rights and for our obvious apostacy from honoring the One True God, he has allowed us to celebrate yet one more year. I am so proud to be an American.
But I do believe the clock is ticking. The scriptures are full of warning signs; some have already come to pass; some are happening right now. The return of our Lord is coming very soon, and I hope and pray you are ready. Yes, we’ve been hearing about these warning signs for many years, but the times are such that the midnight hour is closer than it has ever been.
There is no promise that our mighty nation will always be thus, and personally, I won’t be surprised if we fall before Christ’s return. The political corruption by our leaders is overwhelming. At one time our nation looked to God for divine guidance for all major decisions. Today he’s not even allowed in our schools. We are failing our children in providing the knowledge of Providential influence, and it has become obvious in the rise of broken marriages, depression, addiction, and empty church pews. God has been so merciful and patient with us, but how much longer will he withhold his wrath for our blatant disobedience?
I write these heartfelt words as a woman, a mother, a grandmother, as an American. But today, mostly as a Christian. I sense that the Lord is speaking to my heart, as he has been to all of us who call him Lord. We all feel it. We are all certain time is short. It is our responsibility, above all else, to tell the world about God’s love for all of us… “For God so loved the world… (John 3:16).” He is coming soon to establish His kingdom, once and for all. This, my friends, is the ultimate Freedom. Are you ready?
A very dear friend shared this song with me on Friday, July 2nd. It couldn’t have come at a better time. Share with your friends and your family. It’s time to wake up, to be ready. God bless America.
