These people always cause trouble. Their minds are corrupt, and they have turned their backs on the truth. To them, a show of godliness is just a way to become wealthy. 1 Timothy 6:5
It sounds as if Timothy could be speaking of the leaders of present-day America.
Still God’s word is true and HE has said:
IF MY PEOPLE, WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME, WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY, AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND HEAL THEIR LAND. 2 CHRONICLES 7:14
WHO ARE GOD’S PEOPLE?
Those who have saving faith in Jesus Christ are God’s people.
As indeed he says in Hosea, “Those who were not my people I will call ‘my people,’ and her who was not beloved I will call ‘beloved.’” “And in the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ there they will be called ‘sons of the living God.’”…What shall we say, then? That Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have attained it, that is, a righteousness that is by faith; but that Israel who pursued a law that would lead to righteousness did not succeed in reaching that law. Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were based on works. They have stumbled over the stumbling stone, as it is written, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense; and whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.”…For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. (Taken from Romans 10)
Christians have a grave responsibility at this time in our history….
MAY WE EARNESTLY PRAY AND SEEK GOD’S FACE BEFORE WE CAST OUR BALLOTS…
