Will God Intervene To Save Our Nation?
By Pete Ketcham
The present day rapidly deteriorating moral values of our nation have many Christians wondering how much influence God had in the founding of our nation, and more particular, did the bible believing founding Fathers invoke a covenant with God (beginning with the Mayflower Compact) to guide and protect the new nation.
If indeed they did, is it still in effect, or has the godless left leadership of this nation nullified that covenant? In the same context, did the christian community also help nullify that covenant by their complacency of failing to respond to the attack on the Christian faith by the 1960’s baby boomers who declared “God is Dead”, and “Free Love” was the future?
These preceding questions presents the issue of who is actually in charge of this nation’s future, us or God. The godless secular population simply believe there is no God, and the bible is just a mythical book of fiction, while the Christian population wonder if, or how much, God may intervene to help them save this constitutional nation.
As we look back through the recent decades (beginning in the 40’s), it is astounding to see how insane and degenerate our nation has now become. Back in those past decades It was unimaginable to believe that our nation could ever come to the depraved national status we now find ourselves in.
And unfortunately that status is going to get worse due to the power and influence the news media, academia, Hollywood, and the LGBT community can bring to bare against the christian community.
As I observe the accelerating decent of this nation’s culture into a godless perverted morass, I do believe we still have a covenant with God, but wonder if He may feel it is necessary to bring about a catastrophic event that will turn the nation back to Him.
God had used this procedure several times with His chosen covenanted nation of Israel when they had moved out from under His guidance and protection. We as a nation had experienced a catastrophic event in 1861-1865 when He allowed a devastating civil war to take place in our nation to end the continuing sin of slavery.
Today, I am convinced that we as a nation have now passed the “point of no return” to return this nation back to it’s founding constitutional Christian basis by conventional political means. The corruption and moral depravity within the Democrat controlled portion of our government is just simply too great to be defeated by votes alone.
I am concerned that we may be heading for a violent civil war resolution of the differences between the God fearing right, and the godless left.
As one who experienced the devastation of a civil War, President Lincoln was able to put his trust in God to deal with the tragedy and violence of war. As I read the following quotes by Lincoln, I was amazed how they apply to our present situation, and was encouraged that Lincoln clearly acknowledged that “God Was In Charge” during a crisis that could have destroyed our nation.
March 4, 1861 First Inaugural Address
“ Intelligence, patriotism, Christianity, and a firm reliance on Him, who has never yet forsaken this favored land, are still competent to adjust, in the best way, all our present difficulty.”
October 24, 1863 Remarks to the Baltimore Presbyterian Synod
“Nevertheless, amid the greatest difficulties of my Administration, when I could not see any other resort, I would place my whole reliance on God, knowing that all would go well, and that He would decide for the right.”
September 4, 1864 Letter to Eliza Gurney
“ We hoped for a happy termination of this terrible war long before this; but God knows best, and has ruled otherwise. We shall yet acknowledge His wisdom and our own error therein.”
“ The purposes of the Almighty are perfect, and must prevail, though we erring mortals may fail to accurately perceive them in advance. We hoped for a happy termination of this terrible war long before this; but God knows best, and has ruled otherwise. We shall yet acknowledge His wisdom and our own error therein. Meanwhile we must work earnestly in the best light He gives us, trusting that so working still conduces to the great ends He ordains. Surely He intends some great good to follow this mighty convulsion, which no mortal could make, and no mortal could stay.”
