IN HIS RESTRAINT, THE CHOICE IS BEING MADE CLEAR

Many believers are shocked and dismayed to see the extreme immorality and godless legislation making inroads in this nation. We read headlines we never thought we would see in our lifetime. The celebration of death and perversion, and the far-left political campaign to force this demonic agenda on those who are God-fearing, can be truly frightening.

And, yet…we can take hope in God’s bigger purposes as we wait for His divine retribution to be fully released.

“The Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9 ESV)

We see a pattern throughout Scripture of God’s dealings with rebellious nations. He consistently sends His prophets to call people back to righteousness, even restraining Himself from the judgment they deserve (Isaiah 48:9). Why? Because of His compassion. He is not willing that ANY should perish. Thus, He holds back His just anger in order that repentance may yet come.

“The Lord, the God of their fathers, sent persistently to them by His messengers, because He had compassion on His people and on His dwelling place. But they kept mocking the messengers of God, despising His words and scoffing at His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord rose against His people, until there was no remedy.” (2 Chronicles 36:15-16 ESV)

“Until there was no remedy…”  At times, God restrains Himself and holds back His judgments in order that the hearts of men will be broken. He will allow sin to operate without interference so that man will come to the end of himself. Ultimately, it is not just our laws that need changing, it is our HEARTS. No change of laws or removal of ungodly rulers can fix a wicked heart. The only remedy is God Himself. THIS is what God is going after – and He’s willing to wait if it means more people will wake up to the consequences of their choice.

The dividing line between good and evil, right and wrong, is being defined as never before. For those who are unsure and unable to perceive the underlying demonic agenda at work in the political chaos, God wants to make things crystal clear. His compassion restrains His judgment for things to be made BLACK AND WHITE.

“How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, then follow him.” (1 Kings 18:21 ESV)

The enemy is overplaying His hand, and God is letting him. In His sovereign purposes, God is revealing the emperor’s clothes that many are wearing so that those on the fence will see them for what they are – blind fools. As godless politicians parade their pride and arrogance before the world, the true intentions of their evil hearts are being laid bare. For those with eyes to see, the choice will be made easy and the enemy will be the one to bare the shame.

The Righteous Judge has already decided their fate. Our role is to hold fast to our confession of faith and pray for those yet undecided to see clearly and choose wisely.

“Only hold fast what you have until I come. The one who conquers and who keeps My works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations.” (Revelation 2:25-26 ESV)

  1. Amen, Patricia Wash.

    Oh Lord, how long will America flounder and go limping between two different opinions – sin and grace? Lord God in Heaven, Thank You for your mercy, for your patience, for your working in the areas of our lives and our hearts. Thank you for your grace and atonement through Jesus Christ.

    Heavenly Father, forgive us – America, Churches and individuals for our wandering, for our dabbling with evil, for our culture of sin and evil, for our intolerance and hate of anything that differs with our personal likes and opinions or comfort zone of feelings. Forgive us for not hearing and following your command of “love the Lord your God” (not our personal Gods) and “love your brother as yourself” (not just the brother that we agree with or thinks like we do). You tell us to love our neighbor (everyone) and to forgive those who hate us, but we fail so badly. It is hard in this fallen world of sin to be strong in such an endeavor; we are bombarded on all sides with the slings and arrows of the evil one. Teach us to be more humble and less judgmental, to seek your guiding spirit and love.

    Oh God, I repent Lord for America, for our sins, for our turning away from your and your ways, for turning away from our Judeo-Christian foundations. I repent for the “leaders” of our government, our republic. I pray Oh God, for a cleansing work in our nation and our people. Lord, I repent for myself, for my family, for our not standing stronger in our trust, in our witness, love and thanksgiving for WHO you are, in WHAT you have provided for us. Lord God, thank you for blessings, for provision, for forgiveness unto righteousness.

    Heavenly Father, Hear us, cleanse us, heal us and draws unto yourself. By the authority of Jesus and the Holy Spirit we pray and in His Holy Name and Power.

  2. thank you Lord for your mercy and faithfullness. You are long suffering that none should perish. Show your church how to pray for such a time as this, help us to be salt and light in a dark world that we look up and seek your face and not be distracted by the enemy and his tactics. We have hope because of the cross and the authority to trample over the power of the enemy Luke10:19 Romans 5:3-5

  3. The Church of Jesus Christ has been so disconnected from the wiring of the Spirit that even with her physical standing on earth has become so weak that we need serious awakening, hence the Lord has allowed our marked status to rob on our noses. Let’s all be awaken by the sound of the Spirit and Truth undifiled in Jesus name amen

  4. Father. Stir up Your church to pray and turn from a mindset of God is in control to the truth that He is looking to us to take our place to fight off the enemy and build the wall. Forgive us for being complacent and speaking against our government. Convict and give us grace for faith that You are in our midst and let our words be words of life. Let us see the importance of choosing life with the words of our mouth. Awake your church Father. Fan the flames of revival within us. I trust You Lord and lean on You for direction and understanding. I acknowledge that You are Lord and Creator of the nations. I ask You for the nation of America that we can be a light to the nations. Fulfill Your purposes for Your church and this nation. Land that You love. Land that we love. I love You and thank You for hearing my prayers. And answering them. You are an awesome God Lord Jesus. May the whole world be kept in Your perfect will. In Your name I pray. Amen

  5. Thank you Lord for your compassion and your mercy. I and all others could not be redeemed without those traits of yours. Open the eyes of many to the total depravity of perversion, infanticide and the renunciation of liberty through socialism. May as many as possible choose You, which means choosing life over death. The time of deciding is near, may your prayer warriors contend earnestly for the faith and the lost.
