Throughout history there has been great empires. You may be familiar with the biblical empires of Egypt, Persia, Rome, and Babylonia. No one really considered Israel to be an empire because it was small only about the size of the state of New Jersey but what is interesting is all the things that this little nation was able to accomplish. The secret to their success was that Israel had a divine warrior on their side. Yahweh would fight their battles for them which would allow them to prevail against their various enemies. Israel was a God fearing nation.
This is the claim that use to be made about the U.S.A. which was believe to be a Christian nation founded upon Christian principles. However this once Christian nation declares that it is politically incorrect to say the name of Jesus the Christ in public or to end a prayer in Jesus name. They have taken prayer out of schools and gay marriages are endorsed by our nation's president. What has happen to this once Christian nation?
As you can see we are facing the worst economic downturn of all time and the earth is continuously groaning at all the sin that has run rapid with this once Christian nation. Yes the great world power and empire of the U.S.A. is falling and now not only is the U.S.A. dependent on the middle east for oil but on China for finances.
As Christians we are warn to be watchful for you know not when the Son of Man will return! Are you paying attention? The earth is groaning and God is speaking. Are you listening? Today is a good day to share your faith in Jesus Christ or to restore right fellowship with him!
