I'm afraid that today, this song is one that most
Americans DON'T want to hear.
GOD shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!"
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were
before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men,
turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying
the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Centuries ago, Amos faced the same crisis in the government
6 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Israel,
and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof;
because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor
for a pair of shoes;
7 That pant after the dust of the earth on the head of
the poor, and turn aside the way of the meek:
and a man and his father will go in unto the same maid,
to profane my holy name:
8 And they lay themselves down upon clothes laid to pledge
by every altar, and they drink the wine of the condemned
in the house of their god.
Categorically, Amos names 4 sins of which Israel was
1) Perversion of Justice (vs 6),
2) Oppression of the poor (vs 7),
3) Sexual perversion (vs 7),
4) Idolatry (vs 8).
When God looks at America, does He not see the same?!
Our judicial leadership tends more to "sell the righteous"
because their lives are a reproach to ungodliness!
Our congressional leadership tends more to oppress the
"poor," placing more taxes upon them to furnish a
lifestyle of luxury!
Our entire governmental leadership tends to endorse
homosexuality rather than God-ordained marriage!
And our population as a whole thinks nothing of adultery
and sexual perversion!
Our entire population has forgotten the Creator God and
gone after idols from which they can draw pleasure!
What was God's call to Israel concerning these sins?
14 Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live:
and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you,
as ye have spoken.
15 Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment
in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be
gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.
And the call of God to America is the SAME!
This call BEGINS at the House of God!
Turn to GOD for "grace"!!
It is He Who's gavel of justice LOOMS over us with
