There are 3 emotions of God I would like to consider in this article.
1 God loves mankind - It is His will that all turn to Him for Eternal Life (John 3:16)
2 God hates sin - It is sin that causes us to be separated from Him (Revelation 3:7, 1John 3:8)
3 God is angry at the acts of sin by nations and mankind. (Isaiah 13:11)
Remember first of all, God loves us and wants ALL people to come to him in repentance unto eternal life, through Jesus Christ (1Timothy 2:4). But God’s anger is kindled by our evil nation, that murders babies, endorses homosexuality, and uses its power to destroy the faith of our children.
Can you hear the Lord God saying to the lukewarm Church of America (Revelation 3:17) 'Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.' There is no reward for a lukewarm church that has willingly given control of our country to evil people. Persecution is coming to the American Church. Any idea that God will use a per-tribulation rapture, just for the comfort of the adulterous American church is fantasy.
I do not know the mind of God, but I do know that His love for people is more important than survival of an evil nation (book of Jonah, Jeremiah 11:10-11). Will God’s love allow great trouble to come upon this nation (or even fall), so people will turn to Him? It appears we are heading that direction.
Continue to pray for America and our leaders (1Timothy 2:1-2). Pray for yourself and other Christians that The Lord God will make us stronger and draw us closer to Him. Remember, it is God’s will that every person sorrowfully turn from their sin, and to Jesus Christ for forgiveness with Eternal Life. (Hebrews 9:27) God can turn sorrow into joy.
Do not fear the coming days. We may be threatened, tortured or even killed (Matthew 10:22, 24:9). Stay close to and trust in God. He will give us the strength and words to say when they are needed. (Luke 12:12, Mark 13:11)
