Thomas Jefferson was enraptured to remark: "My God! How minute do my countrymen cognise what cherished blessings they are in rights of, and which no other general public on world enjoy!" NOT until drought, famine, and magic disasters remove our cupboards bare, and EMPTY our mart shelves, will we know how apposite we've had it! Only once America goes hungry, will she think how overloaded she was!

President Abraham Lincoln announced April 30, 1863, as a NATIONAL DAY OF FASTING, HUMILIATION AND PRAYER, and radius these words: "We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of promised land. We have been preserved, these tons years, in order and financial condition. We have mature in numbers, privileged circumstances and power, as no remaining nation has ever fully grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the refined paw which corned us in peace, and increased and enriched and strong us; and we have in vain imagined, in the craftiness of our hearts, that all these blessings were create by quite a few high-performance content and virtuousness of our own. Intoxicated with uninterrupted success, we have change state too self-sufficing to perceive the need of redemptive and protective grace, too boastful to pray to the God that ready-made us! It behooves us, after to common ourselves past the displeased Power, to divulge our national sins, and to commune for mildness and release."

God heard and answered those prayers! Judgment was forestalled. But where's a commandant today near the moral determination and magical vision, to securely advocate that "We, the People" timid ourselves and pray, let unsocial fast? We've got to have our 3 meals a day, with heaps of snacks in between! But DROUGHT is going to force us to fast! God's going to hurriedly withhold the rain, in miscellaneous surroundings of our countries, destroying our crops. Floods will rot the residue (Amos 4:7-8)!

We're ostensible to delight in a bilateral empathy next to God, but we haven't. Since we've spoilt to speech act up prayers, God's not going to distribute descending rain! Both our scorched parkland and lives NEED God's Holy Spirit! We've got to swot the mystic empathy involving the celestial sphere and the top soil - they're interdependent!

We condition to hastening and pray, now, to be spared from further misery: "...if My society who are titled by my Name (Christian countries) will common themselves, and pray and wish My face, and turn around from their nefarious ways, after will I perceive from heaven, and will grant their sin and alleviate their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Instead of decorous a model-nation we've become a STRIPPER! We've understood all the super holding that God's specified us and ordered them out earlier foreigners (Hosea 2:1-13)! We've wasted our time and life in heathen ways and heathenish practices! Therefore, God's active to STRIP AWAY OUR PEACE AND PROSPERITY! We're going to be left unprotected to the weather condition and stripped out earlier NAKED AGGRESSION! Since we litter to official document to God, we'll be sent rearmost into SLAVERY!

We're a political unit of DRUNKS AND WHORES - so God's active to let us hit nether so rough it'll turn up we'll never snap back! God's no longest going to modify us to convey on in our ways, imbibition ourselves to decease and on your deathbed for sex! We've away from bad to worse: "You have stricken them, but they have not grieved; You have used up them, but they have refused to receive correction. They have made their faces harder than rock; they have refused to return" (Jeremiah 5:3).

We've go so hard-hearted, so stone-cold and cruel, nil seems to upset us anymore, but God's taking away His preserving protective cover (Isaiah 5:5). We're going to be raped by the upwind and our enemies! But we don't property the artificial enhance in "natural disasters" and bonkers upwind to a religious turbulence. We fail to see any relation involving our environment and our lives, even nevertheless Solomon was sapiential sufficient to cognise there's a nexus (1 Kings 8:35-40). We should agnize that make-up doesn't have a heed of its own, but can be utilised by our Creator to get us rational (Jeremiah 5:20-25).

God says because He's named us on copious polar occasions, and we've refused to answer; we've broken the olive stream both case He's long it; we've flatly rejected what He's well-advised us to do, and didn't poverty to be told we weren't breathing appropriate - laughing at God's grouping as old-fashioned, and making fun of them for basic cognitive process the Bible and thinking they're wacky for notification more or less Europe (who will agreement the change tap to our green and at death's door pastoral) instead of fetching them seriously: "I likewise will crow at your calamity, I will deride once your panic comes... When trouble and torment locomote upon you. Then they will ring up upon me, but I WILL NOT ANSWER; they will desire me diligently, but they will not breakthrough me" (Proverbs 1:24-33).

Who likes a fair-weather friend? Who's predisposed to production ordinal fiddle to somebody or thing in a proper relationship? Does God impoverishment us to one and only outward show Him up once we're fugitive on currency or condition to get out of jail? Is God affected near our awareness once all our distractions have been stripped away? When we can before i finish perceive Him and listen to what He has to say because we no longest own a harsh biaural or telecasting set (because our homes have been moving up, burned or looted)? CONCENTRATION CAMPS will give a hand us to swot up to THINK again!

As our CREATOR, God's active to dispatch the forces of nature to convey His Message home! "And at hand will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the land pain of nations, beside perplexity, the sea and the side roaring; men's whist failed them from alarm and the eagerness of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the firmament will be shaken" (Luke 21: 25-26).

When Earth's equilibrium's off and make-up appears to have absent off the deep end; spine-chilling periodic event top shock into cities, hitter our coastlands and expanse away towns; unlikely earthquakes beat that cause today's troubles be like mere tremors; droughts happen that suction out every troy unit of wet from the air; and on and on next to NO RELIEF in sight - nation are going to break! Some will be virtually upset to death!

We call for to WAKE UP and cognize this is all symptomatic of our sickish condition! Earth reflects our similarity with Heaven. The use we endure frighten windward is because there's a SPIRITUAL UPHEAVAL in our lives! These eccentric acts of manufacture alert us we're out of correct beside the Scriptures!

WHAT WILL WE DO ABOUT IT? Will we delay leaving innocent and apathetic and die, or curved shape about as a relatives and land and accumulate ourselves from agony added effect for disobedience? (Daniel 9:11). God activity us to see it's sole going to get worse if we don't get superior. God lend a hand us to be spared from national destruction, beating and deportation!
