"The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom"

Good post but I would like to critique some points.

God does not destroy the body and condemn the "soul" to an endless time away from him or an eternal existence in a burning hell, He destroys them both. Mat_10:28 says: "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."

You say that only "God Almighty" can save this country" and you are right but He is not interested in saving this country because this country, from the majority of it's citizens to the highest government office, is at enmity to Him. Without repentance there is no salvation.

I wouldn't be to worried about history books since they will all be destroyed in the end. The only book we should be interested in is the Book of Life. We should endeavor to righteousness so that our names will be written within.

You say we are not the first to face these challenges and we wont be the last. I hope and pray that you are wrong. I pray that His kingdom will come and put an end to mans wayward rule over other men and the righteous will live in His Kingdom forever.

God is only on our side if we obey Him. We may resist evil but God is the authority over what constitutes evil and some evil is easily identified but rejection of His law is the most damning evil. As much as we hate the obvious evil that surrounds us which we identify by our physical discomfort it is spiritual evil within that we must repent of and seek lawfulness in order to find favor in His eyes.

Lastly and again. This country is not precious in God's eye because it is not lawful and never has been Scripturally. This country is no more special than Russia or Italy or any other country no matter how much "man" tries to convince himself it is. God is not in the nation building business any more and we will all be judged individually regardless of national affiliation.

True believers should not be worried about propping up what ever country they live in. It is His Kingdom that we should desire and if that is not the desire of our heart then our desire is misplaced.

Thanks
