Nine Words that Signal America’s Future

It won’t be the government, the economy, the military, education, or technology that will determine the future of America. It will be the acceptance or rejection of nine words from Psalm 33:12: “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” All who love their country and are concerned about its present direction would do well to express this statement broadly and often as a proclamation of faith and patriotism.

Many of my blog posts have highlighted America’s beginning on a foundation of faith, its historical underpinning of God’s blessings, and how our move away from dependence on Him has compromised our present and future viability. This message needs to be loud and clear. However, I have realized that our activities and personal communication (including social media), while giving us a voice in connecting God and country, are limited to our circle of acquaintances. This circle is relatively small and doesn’t send the message to everyone in our workplace, shopping venues, parking lots, school, etc. I believe the time is short to advocate the turning of our nation back to the God of our forefathers and the God who made us the greatest nation in human history. We must urgently make our beliefs and values known beyond those closest to us.

One way to spread the message is by wearing it. People everywhere are wearing t-shirts with serious, humorous, and often obscene messages. Thankfully, many wear casual attire with Christian messages. Recently, I began thinking about what simple words could best be captured on a t-shirt that express God’s central message to America. My thoughts took me to Psalm 33:12. How could we free this promise of God from many unopened Bibles and put it on public display that could be worn anywhere? I searched for days, but found no such t-shirt message available. So, I found a source that could custom make anything on a t-shirt at a reasonable price. The result is pictured above.

I have expanded my blog website to include an e-store where I will begin offering unique items along the theme of God and country. One of the first items available is the t-shirt that I am having made just for my blog readers. It is attractive, comfortable, and made of high quality cotton material for long wear. I believe this t-shirt makes a statement tremendously important to the future of America.

Please click on “Store” on the menu bar above and order your t-shirt today! Then wear it proudly as a statement of your commitment to God and country.

…Then Las Vegas. What Next?

My heart is broken over the horrendous tragedy in Las Vegas. I pray for those who lost loved ones and for those who are still fighting for their lives in hospitals. The pain and suffering touches every American. As we respond to this mayhem in various ways, let us give attention to how it follows the trend of recent prophetic anomalies and the probable meaning of them.

Just a couple of weeks ago (scroll down), I posted that three devastating hurricanes, almost simultaneous, a real nuclear threat, and government chaos where signs that God was giving us Americans clear warning. Then, throw in a rare total solar eclipse over the nation in the middle of it all, and it’s rather evident something providential was occurring. I wondered as I wrote that post whether something else was at our heels. The answer came Monday morning.

The worst mass shooting in the history of America is the latest of what we all must recognize as a string of concentrated ominous events that can’t be labeled coincidental or random.

Reports indicate the shooter was not an international terrorist and had no apparent motive. It seems he was driven by an inexplicable evil obsession–like he was a demonic agent. Trying to find a positive spin to all this, almost every reporter speaks of our country’s resilience and how we will overcome. Resilience may help our recovery from each disaster, but it won’t prevent the next one. I believe these crises are glimpses God is giving us of what life will be like if He takes His protective hand off of our nation. He doesn’t cause suffering, but He sometimes allows it for a greater purpose of good. Throughout history, He has taken his hand off of people and nations, and I am convinced He is giving us final opportunity to prevent that happening to America.

Our resilience needs to be in the form of nationwide acknowledgement of His principles and heed to His guidance. I long to hear a news reporter or politician respond to these catastrophes by urging everyone to be remorseful and seek God’s forgiveness for much of the direction our national culture has taken.

I want to be an optimist in my view of just about everything. However, I fully expect to see the next dreadful event in the near future unless we Americans respond to this one with more of a return to God’s ways than just a few days of mournful piety followed by life as usual.

If you agree, please like and share.
