Come And Let Us Return Unto The Lord
America, especially the Church in America, consider these Words written by the Prophet Hosea to the people of Israel, Ephraim, and Juda in his day, and see if they don’t shed light on what is happening here in our country. God does not change. He is not a man that He should lie. All his ways and his judgements are true and just and He alone is God over all the Earth:
Hos 4:6-11, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. The more they increased, The more they sinned against Me; I will change their glory into shame. They eat up the sin of My people; They set their heart on their iniquity. And it shall be: like people, like priest. So I will punish them for their ways, And reward them for their deeds. For they shall eat, but not have enough; They shall commit harlotry, but not increase; Because they have ceased obeying the Lord. Harlotry, wine, and new wine take away the heart.
Hos 10:3...We have no king because we did not fear the Lord…
Hos 10:12-14, Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the Lord, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.
You have plowed wickedness; You have reaped iniquity. You have eaten the fruit of lies, Because you trusted in your own way, in the multitude of your mighty men.
Therefore tumult shall arise among your people, And all your fortresses shall be plundered As Shalman plundered Beth Arbel in the day of battle—A mother dashed in pieces upon her children.
Hos 6:1-3, Come, and let us return to the Lord; for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. Oh Church in America, we have been crucified with Christ; we have been buried with Him and the Father has raised us from the dead with Him and justified us from all our iniquities, that we may follow on, follow Him, take His yoke upon us and learn of Him, counting all our ways as dung, that we may know Him and the power of His resurrection. Oh Church, what have we done?!
Hos 13:9&10, O Israel, you have destroyed yourselves; but in Me is your help.
I will be your king: where is any other that may save you in all your cities? and your judges of whom you said, Give me a king and princes?
Hos 14:9, Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.
In February of 2020 the Lord spoke to me by a tongue and interpretation and said: I have sent this plague into the Earth, and I am watching my people to see if they will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways. That was a direct quote from 2 Cron 7:14. If you read 2 Cron 7:13&14, God says, If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Did we? What did we do Church in America when this plague came to our land? How many of us fasted and prayed and repented and turned from our evil ways? Or did we just continue to delight ourselves in our own ways and in our mighty men? There is a reason why things are the way they are now, and they are going to get much worse. Stop blaming Joe Biden America! It’s us! It’s not him or the Democrats or the Republicans; it’s all of us! It’s our refusal to turn from our wicked ways and humble ourselves before the Great and Mighty God of all the Earth who birthed this nation through a people that loved Him and separated themselves unto Him; One Nation Under God. When we got out from under our God to go after our whoredoms, then the destruction began to come, and now it is upon us. What are we going to do?, continue to blame our president? God put him over us because of our evil ways! How many innocent babies have we slaughtered today? How much bribery and theft and fornication and murder and lies are we involved in today?
Consider Daniel’s prayer for Israel in the days of their captivity in Babylon:
Dan 9:1-19, In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the lineage of the Medes, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans—in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the Word of the Lord through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession, and said, O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep his commandments, we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from your precepts and your judgments. Neither have we heeded your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings and our princes, to our fathers and all the people of the land. O Lord, righteousness belongs to You, but to us shame of face, as it is this day—to the men of Judah, to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel, those near and those far off in all the countries to which You have driven them, because of the unfaithfulness which they have committed against You. O Lord, to us belongs shame of face, to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, because we have sinned against You. To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against Him. We have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in his laws, which He set before us by his servants the prophets.
Yes, all Israel has transgressed your law, and has departed so as not to obey your voice; therefore the curse and the oath written in the Law of Moses the servant of God have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against Him. And He has confirmed his Words, which He spoke against us and against our judges who judged us, by bringing upon us a great disaster; for under the whole heaven such has never been done as what has been done to Jerusalem. As it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us; yet we have not made our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities and understand your truth. Therefore the Lord has kept the disaster in mind, and brought it upon us; for the Lord our God is righteous in all the works which He does, though we have not obeyed His voice. And now, O Lord our God, who brought your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and made Yourself a name, as it is this day—we have sinned, we have done wickedly! O Lord, according to all your righteousness, I pray, let your anger and your fury be turned away from your city Jerusalem, your holy mountain; because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and your people are a reproach to all those around us. Now therefore, our God, hear the prayer of your servant, and his supplications, and for the Lord's sake cause your face to shine on your sanctuary, which is desolate.
O my God, incline your ear and hear; open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city which is called by your name; for we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of your great mercies. O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for your own sake, my God, for your city and your people are called by your Name.
