President Lincoln, like many of our previous political leaders in America, was a deeply religious Christian. He believed in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and regarded the Bible as the inspired authentic authoritative Word of God. It was used in the courts to measure morality, values and beliefs.
Page 1 of the Philadelphia Trumpet, October 2017, states “On June 16, 1858, Abraham Lincoln said in a speech, ‘A house divided against itself cannot stand.’ That was a direct quote from Jesus Christ.” Matthew 12:25.
President Lincoln was warning America that it must unite and live by the morality, values and spirit of Jesus Christ or America would go to war. As the civil war continued, over 620,000 Americans died. In the middle of the war, Lincoln admonished the people in America to repent, fast and pray so they could return to their Christian moorings of love, forgiveness and morality and unite once again as one great nation.
“On page 2, Lincoln’s proclamation also said, ‘And, insomuch as we know, that by His divine law, nations, like individuals, are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole people?...it behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.’ ”
My Bible tells me that God is indeed punishing America for sins of abomination!! Ezekiel 5:8 reads, “Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, am against thee, and will execute judgments in the midst of thee in the sight of the nations.”
Please order my book, THE SCIENCE OF JUDGMENT. God is predictable. There is a scientific pattern for the rise and fall of nations throughout history. There are reasons and explanations why 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and the natural weather destruction in Houston and Florida happened.
The President, the House of Representatives and the Senate need to make a proclamation to repent, fast and pray as they did under President Lincoln’s leadership in order to stop our nation from self decaying and self destructing. The leaders of this nation, in Lincoln’s time, both the President and Congress, knew the sins of abomination, such as homosexuality and abortion, were damned in the Scriptures. They were strongly against these sins and before 1973 they were listed as crimes with criminal sentences outlined for the guilty sinners involved.
Today most people, including politicians, and even many clergy call alternate lifestyles “choices” instead of sin. America is much further down the path to severe judgment. As the city of Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed, America could be destroyed from a nuclear attack. The Bible describes Lot as watching and participating in business. He was so spiritually dead that his soul was vexed. He wasn’t concerned with the sin all around him and didn’t realize that God not only judges the sinner, but the culture, city, state and nation that condones that sin.
2 Peter 2: 4-8 reads, “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds.” Leviticus 18:22-25; Leviticus 20:13; Romans 1:18-32; Jude 7 and many more.
I want to thank all those who have responded to help us with our shortfall. I still need an additional $40,000 to get out of debt and start 2018 fresh. Please send in your best gift so I can continue to sound the alarm for the church and America to turn back to God. This is not the time to retreat but to advance with the message to repent for the kingdom of God is at hand.
Blessings to you all,
