Over and over again as I talk to pastors and other Christian leaders, I hear the same thing. None of us see a way for America to come out of it’s troubles except there be a return to the faith of our fathers. This return will only come by prayer. So when I received this story in my email box about Charlie Daniels and how he sees the same thing, I thought I should share it with you.
Charlie Daniels wrote on September 10th in CNSNews an blog post on His Blog how he sees that America will be brought to her knees either by prayer or by ruin. Here are some excerpts from that post.
America will be brought to her knees
By Charlie Daniels
I know that I view the world through a whole different prism than somebody who is half my age or younger. Things that didn’t cross my mind a few decades ago seem terribly important to me now. Living through a world war, the Iron Curtain, the threat of nuclear annihilation, recessions, booms, Jim Crow days, civil rights struggle and the explosive growth of modern technology gives me a different slant on things than someone born in the last half century.
I remember a time when the nation didn’t find out who had won a presidential election until the wee small hours, or in some cases, the day after the votes were cast. There were always those who were pleased with the outcome and those who were unhappy about it.
But no matter which side won there was always the prevailing attitude and belief that America would survive, that whoever was in power could not do enough damage in four years that it could not be righted in the next election cycle, that the ship of state would sail on, no matter who was at the helm.
That has been my fervent belief all my life, that no one man or party was powerful enough to break the United States of America badly enough that it couldn’t be fixed, that nobody would allow our nation to become sick enough that it would not be made well again once the healing process began.
I have lately had to rethink my position.
I am desperately afraid that our nation is rapidly reaching the point of no return, and believe me I do not make that statement lightly. I am simply not a doom and gloom person; I choose to look for silver linings in the darkest of clouds and have made barrels of lemonade out of the lemons life has presented me with.
The national debt has just rolled over to $16,000,000,000,000, sixteen trillion dollars and grows larger by the second. A nation that cannot pay its debts is bound for fiscal ruin and chaos.
A nation who turns it’s back on its Creator is a nation that cannot and will not stand. A house divided will fall.
America will be brought to her knees, I only hope it will be in prayer, not in ruin.
Do you think we have passed the point of no return?
Invariably in my discussions with pastors and Christian leaders, we have all felt the need to prepare our flocks for hard times ahead. We are at a crossroads. Either our nation will fall on it’s knees and repent for the way we have backslidden and turned away from Him or we will become a heathen and ungodly nation in which judgement shall come.
Do you think that we have passed the point of no return? Have we gotten to the point where judgement is inevitable? I would like to hear from you. Will you get on your knees for this nation and ask God to bring revival and a renewed sense of morality in our nation?
