Today our nation is sick. It is running a high fever. We see it exhibited in the heat of all the political upheaval of our day.
Fever is always an outward sign of an inward problem. It is an indication of something foreign to our body that is infecting our system, or the fever can be caused by a poorly functioning vital organ.
Our fear is that the disease, if unchecked, will result in the condition of our nation becoming terminal. With that in mind, I think that it is time for America to see the Doctor. I would actually suggest a specialist.
The good news is that I think I have located a specialist with the cure. He describes the condition and the cure both in the best book on the subject that has ever been written. The book is entitled "The Bible", which simply means "THE BOOK". Not a book, or some book, but THE BOOK. The Book is the document from which all other books, of truth, must be written.
It is in the division of this book entitled Deuteronomy we find these words in the 28th chapter. (Taken from the Message,which is "The Bible in contemporary language") It is rather lengthy but it is worth the read just to get the cure for what is ailing our nation today.
"If you listen obediently to the Voice of God, your God, and heartily obey all his commandments that I command you today, God, your God, will place you on high, high above all the nations of the world. All these blessings will come down on you and spread out beyond you because you have responded to the Voice of God, your God:
God's blessing inside the city,
God's blessing in the country;
God's blessing on your children,
the crops of your land,
the young of your livestock,
the calves of your herds,
the lambs of your flocks.
God's blessing on your basket and bread bowl;
God's blessing in your coming in,
God's blessing in your going out.
God will defeat your enemies who attack you. They'll come at you on one road and run away on seven roads.
God will order a blessing on your barns and workplaces; he'll bless you in the land that God, your God, is giving you.
God will form you as a people holy to him, just as he promised you, if you keep the commandments of God, your God, and live the way he has shown you. All the peoples on Earth will see you living under the Name of God and hold you in respectful awe".
THERE YOU HAVE IT!
If you would like to know what will happen to America if we don't follow the Doctors orders, find a Bible and read the rest of the chapter. "It ain't very pretty"
AMERICA, IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP, GO TO THE DR., AND REPENT!
