Although this is a time to celebrate Fathers Day, today I mourn as I consider the state of this nation, the ongoing betrayal of God by our countrymen, the continuing murder of our unborn, the abandonment of our children, and the increasing judgment of God being exacted on this land.
This is what the LORD says: “What fault did your fathers find in me, that they strayed so far from me? They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves.”
The United States of America is living in very dark times. As I mentioned within my book (published in 2006), the US is under the judgment of God.
Each year, over a million children within this nation are living in fatherless homes as the institution of marriage is being systematically destroy by divorce and the religion of self-centered humanism (idolatry). Meanwhile, the leaders within our government and the judicial system are moving full steam ahead to redefine marriage to that which God defines as an Abomination.
O LORD, your hand is lifted high (to strike), but they do not see it. Let them see your zeal for your people and be put to shame; let the fire reserved for your enemies consume them.
The FATHERS of this nation have sat idly by as:
- God was torn from our government during the 1947 Supreme Court ruling of “Separation of Church and State”. As a result of that ruling, God is now forbidden within the public sector of our government and within our schools. Furthermore, there are forces such as the ACLU who are determined to remove all remembrance of our Judeo/Christian heritage throughout this nation by their unrelenting attacks.
- Our children are being brainwashed to believe that they evolved from animals, yet we are surprised and perplexed when they behave in a barbaric, animalistic manner within our society. This generation of children is engaged in sexual deviant behaviors at very young ages; where violence is ever increasing within our schools; and where moral clarity is considered bigotry and hateful.
- We have forfeited our responsibility as fathers by furthering sexually promiscuous behaviors in our own personal relationships. Collectively, we are guilty in feeding the abortion mills throughout our nation with over 4,000 blood sacrifices to the Alter of Satan each an every day. Furthermore, we have justified this holocaust by our laws under the guise of “Choice”.
- We have abandoned the responsibilities of educating our children in the ways of morality and have forfeited that responsibility to the public schools system, whereby tolerance of every deviant behavior is acceptable and whereby God is forbidden. Today, over 25% or OUR TEENAGE GIRLS have contracted a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) due to our irresponsibility to take leadership over our children.
- Sixty percent of America’s fathers are addicted to pornography (20% of the leadership of the church); whereby we have reduced a lifelong commitment to our spouses to an alternative level of satisfying our sexual lusts. Many fathers are committing the sin of adultery within their heart as they role-play their perverse lusts under the cover of darkness.
- We are captivated by sexually deviant TV programming with a “Sex in the City” mindset, yet we are blind to the consequences of that sin. In the case of NYC, over 25% of all adults are carriers of the Herpes virus.
- We allow political and judicial leaders within this nation to dictate the definition of the family in direct opposition to the core teachings of Jesus Christ under the covering of tolerance. Yet, we are shocked and appalled when we find out that our children are sharing nude pictures on their cell phones or when they come home to share about the latest alternative lifestyle teachings going on within their classroom.
Per God’s design, the father of the household is the leader of the family. The responsibility of that leadership has an eternal consequence towards establishing a God centered moral foundation for the upbringing of the family. The father is the provider and protector of the household. We are commanded to LOVE our wives as Jesus Loved the church – not abandon them for an upgrade or because of difficulties. At the Lord’s judgment seat, you will never be able to argue the case of irreconcilable differences.
We are commanded to LOVE our wives and to protect our families. Yet, we are failing that directive from the very God that spoke the Universe into existence! Again, I make no apologies for preaching fire during a time when great darkness is ruling this nation.
We have and will continue to receive God’s judgment, which will increase in intensity and in frequency due to our disobedience. As a nation, we are living in denial that the Hedge of Protection that once blessed this nation is torn down by the very fathers who sat idly by in melancholy indifference as the hand of God is being “held high” to strike.
A PRAYER FOR FATHERLY REPENTANCE
Dear Father in Heaven,
As I consider this Fathers Day, I cannot help but mourn the state of this nation. The level by which we have betrayed you weighs deep within my heart.
How can we expect morality and civility within our society when we have failed so miserably to lead by example? How blasphemous and obstinate we have become towards you, my Lord! We have allowed your “Word of Truth” to be compromised by the teachings of Satan under the name of political correctness and tolerance. In an effort to be non-judgmental, we have lost the ability to be morally discerning. We are guilty of shrinking back in spiritual mediocrity, coasting through life, as all hell breaks forth around us.
We are ALL guilty of being lukewarm, with one foot within our worldly lusts and with the other pretentiously poised in religious ritual. We have become self-serving, lovers of darkness, unfaithful, perverse, and altogether wicked. We are carrying to your judgment seat our sins of both thought and deed. How can we escape your judgment as we coast down the wide path that leads to destruction, with many cheering us on in support? Blind leading the Blind unto their own destruction!
On that Day of Judgment and in accordance to your Word, many will hear you speak, “Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.” (Matthew 25:41) Unless we repent and turn from our evil ways, the fate of our nation will see perilous times by your hand, which is raised against us – in response to our own sin and betrayal.
Lord, we have sinned greatly against you! Please forgive us! Please heal the blindness of our heart and allow us to see our sin through your eyes. Put the “Fear of the Lord” back into the hearts of the fathers throughout this nation. I beseech you to intervene for the sake of Your Glory which is being robbed within this nation by our betrayal and pride. Convict our hearts unto repentance.
Lord, please rain down the fire of your Spirit as a thousand beacons of light and truth across this nation, chasing out the darkness which holds us captive. Raise an army of prophets of God to stand in the gap, boldly proclaiming your truth. Lord, please save us! I pray for a revival like never seen since the beginning of time; a revival that dwarfs that of the great awakening of early years! Glorify yourself my Lord. Return the fathers of this nation back to you.
Lord, without you, we will not survive.
I ask this in JESUS most precious name! AMEN
