I want to know. Where are the voices of Christian leaders in America speaking out against the chaos that is going on?
What a crying shame to hear (a few months ago) the conservative news anchors on Fox News lamenting the fact that they have very few Christian leaders who are willing to speak out. I mean, it’s pathetic!
The Lord gave us this country and we, as citizens, have a responsibility to preserve our freedoms. For a long time, I have been so frustrated with Christian leaders: those who have a platform, who can speak to their sphere of influence and be heard. It seems like their message is “church as usual”. It really does come across as irrelevant to me. It’s like the house is burning down and they preach quietly and calmly on messages we heard 30 years ago, or worse, on some new found greasy grace that will slide their listeners right into hell without ever knowing Jesus.
I am so grateful for men like Franklin Graham and Jonathan Cahn calling people, and the nation, to repentance. Others like Rodney Howard Browne, who is not hesitant to speak the truth and is taking it to the streets, including Washington D.C.! Gutsy leaders who are sounding the alarm and trying to do something about what is going on all around us. I have watched, listened to, and read what these men are saying. Thank God for them!
I am sure there are pastors and Christian leaders that I don’t know who are speaking out, but I am talking about the ones who have the big platforms to be heard nationally. The mega churches and well known pastors/leaders who could just open their mouths and speak to thousands. Things being done by the current administration are just wrong, no matter what political party you belong to. That is not to say that any political party is holy. Far from it. BUT, Christians who support a President and a party who seem hell bent on weakening our country, morally and militarily, are simply choosing to turn a blind eye to the truth. Don’t get me started on the big church pastors who led their congregations to vote for someone who so obviously stood against the word of God, and they did so because of his skin color! You, sirs, are in part responsible for the degrading of our nation., including the racial chaos that has ensued.
Where are the prophets who dare to speak, “Thus saith the Lord” to the king? And not just to the king, but to the people. Why isn’t someone speaking clearly about the sins of our society? The false statement we hear so much, “You’re not supposed to judge”…blah blah blah..is spoken by people who don’t have a clue about what they are saying. There is such an ignorance of the word of God in this country, along with an ignorance…period, thanks to our secular, liberal, “progressive” (not progressive at all) educational system.
I see this picture: America is teetering on the edge of falling into the abyss, never to be recovered. If someone thinks that is extreme, then they are blind and deaf. I personally think that the reason we are in this mess is because the church abdicated her role in our society and allowed the secularists to take over, while we enjoyed our little meetings. Well, that’s OVER now. Time to get serious, people. You know those songs we sing about being the army of the Lord? That means we have to toughen up and get ready to fight!
Where is Moses who stood up for God’s people and said,”Let My people go!” Christians are being persecuted, their freedoms stolen in this country, and in many places in our world, they are being martyred, along with many others who are so unfortunate to live in a land ruled by evil. While we watch and shake our heads, and are shocked…until the next time.
Who remembers the protests against abortion, when people would block the entrance to the death clinics, and many were arrested multiple times. Remember when we marched and carried signs? Then, someone said that this was not the Christian way. We should just pray. That was over almost 30 years ago.Wonder how many body parts have been sold since then?
Lest I am misunderstood, let me say I believe that prayer is the most powerful force on earth. There are many types of prayer. One of those is intercession. God came down to tell Abraham that He was going to destroy the evil cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and He wanted Abraham to know before He did it. Abraham dared to stand before the Lord and ask that He spare the cities because of the righteous. The Lord agreed to every request that Abraham made. But, Abraham stopped asking at 10. If there were 10 righteous, God agreed to not destroy them. If you have never read the story, please do. It is very descriptive. Read it in Genesis 18 and 19.
Also, Moses interceded and God changed his mind about destroying the Israelites when they rebelled. He was so angry, He was just going to wipe them out and start over with Moses. But, Moses pleaded with Him not to do it, because he said, the Egyptians would talk bad about Him. Also, He said, ” Remember Your servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and the promises You made to them.” So, the Lord changed His mind and did not destroy them. Prayer is powerful!
The Lord deals with nations. In Jeremiah 18, this is what He says, “If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned. And if at another time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be built up and planted, and if it does evil in my sight and does not obey me, then I will reconsider the good I had intended to do for it.”
I wish I could just read my bible, pray, and when I use social media, I could just share a little scripture once in a while. Then I could live in La La land like some people do. Well, it just doesn’t happen. Maybe I don’t accomplish much by what I do, but it’s what I can do with what I have. I certainly do not believe that God’s men and women are supposed to stay out of the fight and just stay in the church building, and not get their holy little hands soiled. The devil is all for that!
I know that if all people who love America would stand up and be counted, we could put down this evil that is trying to destroy our country. We need our Moses. We need our David. This is the time to call the army to attention!
HOWEVER, we the people can take action action with or without leaders! We, as Americans, can stand up, rise up, and take back our country! Thank God for those who dared to go into the enemy camp and record the undercover videos exposing abortion providers negotiating for the sale of babies’ body parts. Bravo to those heroes! May God grant that this is the first step to bring an end to this atrocity!
I saw a private citizen standing guard with his weapon in front of a recruiting station in Ohio. Doing what he can, since our government won’t.
A well known news celebrity with influence started a petition to stop illegal immigrant felons from going through the revolving door of deportation, and in this particular case, murdering a young woman taking a walk with her Dad in San Francisco. That will likely become a law. Thank God!
Thousands gathered in New York City yesterday to protest the deal with Iran. Go America! We see private citizens waking up, ready to be bold and defend the honor of our beloved homeland.
Let us volunteer to run toward the giant of socialism or Islam, or whatever name the devil is using at the time, and with God’s help, take him down!
Is there not a cause?

There is a cause my Judy Ann. It reminds me of Ezekiel 9:4 where the angels were commanded to put a mark on the foreheads of all those that cry and sigh for the abominations being done in their midst. The rest were slaughtered. What you are pointing out here, makes me sigh and cry. I weep for our nation and cry out to God to show us what our response should be. Thank you for taking the time to share your heart and prick our collective conscience. So proud of you my love!
Thank you so much, Michael, for your encouragement. I thank the Lord for you, for your heart, and your dedication to the Lord and His word. I’m believing for an outpouring of His Spirit to change the hearts and minds of a majority in our country. He is able!
