Will God Save America?


One of my friends calls me a pessimist because I don’t think anything will come of human efforts to pull our country out of the abyss. Big Tech has virtually infinite wealth, all at the service of the Far Left. Our leaders, so far, have failed us. Democrats are straining to do away with our republic. Our politics is insane. We’ve lost the ownership of all our institutions. Etc., etc.

So I’m Mr. Negative for saying things like that.

But not compared to some. Today I’ve read comments to the effect that “America is over, accept it,” break it up into a lot of smaller pieces in hopes that some of them won’t be as bad as others. Etc., etc.

I put my trust in God. I appeal to the Judge of all the earth.

In Isaiah, Chapters 36-37, and 2 Kings, Chapters 18-19, we read of Assyria’s invasion of Judah during the reign of Hezekiah. Judah was a small country. Assyria, under King Sennacherib, was an ancient super-power. In Isaiah 36: 4-10, the Assyrian spokesman boasts of his king’s invincibility, his conquests of all the other countries in the region, whose petty little gods could not protect them. Resistance is futile, he counsels Jerusalem; resistance is folly.

But in Chapter 37, v. 36, here’s what happened:

“Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote in the camp one hundred four score thousand and five thousand [185,000 men]: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.”

His army shattered, Sennacherib returned to his own country–where two of his sons assassinated him.

God will save whom He will save, and not necessarily by worldly means. Worldly wealth and power do not impress Him.

St. Paul to the church in Corinth: “For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called. But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things that are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: that no flesh should glory in His presence” (1 Corinthians 1: 26-29).

I believe God’s word is true. He is the same God to whom Isaiah prayed, and in whom Paul advised his people to trust. He is the God to whom Washington prayed at Valley Forge.

The might of His enemies, in worldly terms, is as great as Sennacherib’s ever was. And we who oppose them, by comparison, are weak–and even despised.

We do what little we can, knowing that when God Himself decides, the battle will be over and Our Lord Jesus Christ shall have triumphed over all His enemies. All their wealth, all their power, and all their lies won’t save them. He will cut them down in ways they never imagined.

Never give in.

Pray for deliverance, do what we can, and trust in God Almighty. Amen.

  1. The America in which I grew up was a wonderful place. It wasn’t faultless, by any means, but the level of lawfulness and decency I remember from the America of my youth was wonderful. As the years passed, things changed and America changed. By the time I reached my teen years, use of illicit drugs had increased dramatically and the “Sexual Revolution” undermined the stability of the family. In the years since, America continued to move away from many of the values which had made it great.

    I’m proud of the America of my youth, but disappointed by the direction of the country over the last five decades or so. If America was to return to its former self, I would be delighted, but I’m not holding my breath. There are any number of theories regarding the place of America in scripture and I’ve come to the conclusion that this is something which will only be known for a certainty when it comes to pass.

    In Genesis 12:6, God told Abram “in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” Whether America, as a nation, will be the recipient of specific blessings, I have no idea, but according to scripture, ALL of the human race is in store for blessings through the arrangement of God, which provided our Messiah, through the line of Abram.

  2. In the natural it looks like all is lost. In the spiritual it looks like an opportunity for God to do things natural man cannot believe. like create a great awakening and show how the wealth of the wicked is stored up for the righteous. Again, keep your eyes on Trump, he had been anointed by God to be our leader at this time.

  3. I’m with you Lee. For all the bad stuff happening I still see room for hope. I see an audit movement taking shape. I see parents finally starting to stand up against school boards. I see people pushing back against masks. I see evil and corruption being exposed like never before. And I see the Biden administration failing horribly. Things haven’t turned out how I expected, yet, but I really think it had to happen this way for God to wake people up out of their slumber.

    I think of the Babylonians who thought they were secure behind their walls. They thought they were so untouchable that they threw a party. And then God used a man like Cyrus to divert the Euphrates River and conquer them without ever having to draw their swords. What God did to the Babylonians He can do to the current evil empire trying to take over America and the world.
