"We Don't Have To Worry About Going To War; The War Has Come To Us"~A.M

"While we were sleeping, the enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat" Matthew 13:25
Not only is April 15th the anniversary of President Lincoln's death, the sinking of the Titanic, Tax Day, but also the Boston Marathon is being held as it is "Patriots Day", in Boston, Massachusetts. The marathon route was swelling from spectators viewing and encouraging the racers and peppered with local police. Just as the first finisher was running across the finish line, two loud explosions went off simultaneous.
A plume of smoke went up in the air and stunned runners and witnesses looked over to see what was happening., Then the visual of injured spectators with missing extremities and bloodied faces lay strewn along the route where the explosion happened. The race came to a halt. In disbelief, horrified spectators and police, marathon staffers began running over to the injured. Thank God, there were over a thousand medical volunteers staffing this annual marathon as immediate medical triage began shortly after the explosions. At this posting there are 2 confirmed dead, over 100 injured and several critical patients. Young children hit by shrapnel. These senseless massacres should not surprise us. If anything, we should expect more. " Bloodshed pursues bloodshed". Hosea 4:2 Only a coward would attack innocent people, let alone children.
We have allowed the enemy in. God cannot continue to bless and protect this arrogant and sinful nation that is in a state of rebellion, just as Sodom and Gomorrah with their detestable practices and shedding of innocent blood. God will use famines, catastrophes, the economy, massacre's and natural disasters to get our attention. Let's face it, Third world countries and unsaved nations see us as weak. Look at the disrespect Mexico and Iran let alone, North Korea has for the United States of America, They view us as weak, ineffective money-grubbing hypocrites. We send missionaries over to Third world countries telling them about their backyards when our own backyards are not clean.
We accept sin in the church and look the other way as we play church each week. We tolerate Islam and other religions, but are intolerant to any representation of Christ or the Cross. We idolize sports and material possessions. We seek all these things of the world, instead of seeking the Kingdom first. The image that the American church is projecting to our enemies is that we have sold out our birthright for material blessings We were founded as a Christian Nation when the Mayflower docked, but we have lost our moral compass and those truths that we held so evident with our founding fathers. We have let the enemy in and allowed him to stay by our silence. Listen, God is shaking this nation: Can His judgement be far behind ? We need to lift God's Word and Biblical truths back up as our nations foundation. It is the most important issue facing us. Or the massacre's and disasters will continue.Terrorism in the womb leads to terrorism in the streets. God is speaking. Can we hear Him?
II Chronicles 7:14 "If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and I will forgive their sin, and will heal their land".
