We have been talking all week about returning to God. America is in great need to not just talking about returning to God, but to repent of our sins and return to God's ways. Israel was judged and destroyed for it’s refusal of God’s ways and rejecting Him. Sodom was burnt up because of their sins. God was going to destroy Nineveh, but they repented.
Jonah 3:1-10 NKJV
Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time, saying,  "Arise, go to Nineveh (America), that great city (country), and preach to it the message that I tell you."  So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city, a three-day journey in extent.  And Jonah began to enter the city on the first day's walk. Then he cried out and said, "Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!"  So the people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them.  Then word came to the king of Nineveh; and he arose from his throne and laid aside his robe, covered himself with sackcloth and sat in ashes.  And he caused it to be proclaimed and published throughout Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything; do not let them eat, or drink water.  But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily to God; yes, let every one turn from his evil way and from the violence that is in his hands.  Who can tell if God will turn and relent, and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish?  Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.
America is on the edge of destruction from within. We maybe just 40 days from the destruction of America as we know it. We see rioting and looting across the country. People are setting fire to states. Politicians are screaming for their way or else. Churches are being closed. Sin and immorality has been accepted in many churches. Our eyes have been blinded. Our hearts turned from God. REPENTANCE is the only thing that will turn God’s angry from the death of our country.
O Lord God, our father, thou will be done. Forgive us of ours sins for we have sinned greatly against Your ways. We have rejected Your laws and turn evil into good. Have mercy on us, helps us to learn Your ways and to return to You. We have the blood of our children on our hands. We have banned Your name in our schools, in our government building and courts. We have allowed other gods and idols to take Your place. We have built massive building to the gods of sports and entertainment, praise them and following them. We spent billions on people the reject you and ignore the injustice of the poor. We seek our personal pleasures above Your praise and service. We talk about servicing you as we watch our TV’s instead of reading your word.
O Lord GOD forgive our sins. Have mercy on us. Teach us Your ways. Prepare us for Your return, that we would be a wise bride looking for Your coming. Let us learn to love others as You loved us. Come quickly Lord Jesus.
