A letter to America

America is headed straight towards destruction. And this destruction will come as a judgment from God. This judgment can only be averted if we seek God and turn ourselves and our country around.

Responsibility for the ungodliness which now prevails in our great country belongs to each one of us. But why me, you are probably thinking to yourself. Because God says so. You see, God is going to hold us responsible for everything, for what we have done and for what we failed to do.

In the Word of God (the Holy Bible) it says, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

We failed our duty in many different ways.

We stood as our nation was being corrupted and perverted, and we let ungodliness seep into every aspect of our lives. Everything which God considers abomination is now acceptable in America.

Some of our political leaders now brazenly support things which God Almighty called wicked and abominable.

They are either not knowledgeable in God’s word, or are defying God.

The Holy Bible shows what happened to nations who dared to defy God, or that got so morally depraved that God finally destroyed them.

So we need to admit that America is morally and spiritually corrupt, and that it is time to turn back to God. As a start, turn the TV off, and then close your eyes, sit back, take a few deep breaths and relax for a few minutes without thinking.

Then believe the Bible truth that there is a living God, our Creator, who created everything that was created and made, including you, and that He loves you.

On a clear night, go outside where it is dark and look at the moon, stars and the never-ending universe. Everything you see before you stands on God’s Word.

God wants us to love Him, obey Him and serve Him in return for the life He has given us. To get to know God, read the Word of God, the Holy Bible, from beginning to end.
