America is in decline - some are unaware or unaffected, others are burdened, still others admit they are discouraged.

But God' Word is clear, speaking Truth to all who will take the time to read and study - this world is NOT our home - we are strangers in this strange and foreign land, exiles awaiting our home going to our Promise Land.

As we see all that is going on around us we should not be discouraged, burdened or unaffected, but rejoice that first, our names are written in His Book of Life and second, we were told that these things must come to pass before the great and terrible day of the LORD. We have been chosen for such a time as this. Just as Hadassah [Queen Esther] we too have a mission, not to save America, nor to become involved in the political system, but to save lost souls, rescue the perishing, family, friends, neighbors, bound in sin, wrapped in grave clothes of this world' glitz and glamor, chained by the lies of the enemy.

E.M. Bounds spent hours daily on his knees in prayer - praying for the lost, praying for the church, praying for his own walk with the LORD. How much of our day is given to prayer.?.

We must seek the LORD for the lost among us. We must pray, we must read and study His word, we must be ready to give an account of the hope that is within each of us.

Time is short for all of us. We have already spent years doing our own thing; building a career, raising children, saving for retirement, traveling..... NOW it is time to be about our Father' business.

"Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord."
1 Corinthians 15:56

  1. A big, HUGE, hearty AMEN to this post dear sister. The world is unraveling before our eyes, and yet, we know God is sovereign. He is in control.

    For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come. -Hebrews 13:14

    So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12

  2. He indeed is in control, but we have a mandate to share the good news with this lost and dying world -while there is still time.

    Far too many in our world are lost and heading for eternal damnation apart from our Messiah.

    We must be about our Father' business.
