IF PROPHESIES

There are many “If” prophecies in GODS word such as:

"IF you come back, you rebellious people, I will forgive you for being unfaithful.

Here we are! We have come to you because you are the LORD our God.”

Throughout the scriptures we see this scenario played out many times due to the unfaithfulness of Israel. The pattern goes like this; Israel sins, GOD warns, punishes, Israel repents and GOD forgives.

God’s blessings were contingent upon the nation honoring and serving HIM.

Well guess what? The same things apply today.

You often hear people say; “GOD Bless America”. This was one of George W. Bush’s final words to many speeches. I must admit I liked to hear him say that but every time I thought, based on what, the multiplicity of religions that reject HIM? Perhaps God Bless America for all the illicit sexual acts and preferences? Or the abuse of wives and children? Or theft in every area of life? Or the maiming and murder of masses and the raping of women, and children by the thousands?

There is still a remnant who worships GOD in spirit and truth but the mass of America is heading in the wrong direction.

As Satan’s foothold grows, the Christian influence lessens and GOD has less reason to bless this country.

The answer to this situation is the same today as it was in the past, and that is a genuine turning from our rebellious ways and once again to serve the living GOD.

It is easy to point out the sins of the unsaved and say, “They are the problem,” but GOD usually starts with those who profess to be his children.

The time has come for judgment, and it must begin with God's household. If judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God's Good News?

There are some scriptures that never fail to get my attention and this is one of them. I’m thinking about changing my usual style of reciting the failures of others, and envisioning what a great church it would be if they would only repent and straighten up; and deal more with my weaknesses and not worry about the rest.

There are many “If” prophecies but there are also many other prophetic words that have little to do with our conduct. People sing all kinds of “sweet songs” Sweet, sweet spirit, Sweet Adeline and such but nobody; I mean nobody sings Sweet Gehenna (the lake of fire).

The time is coming when GOD will exercise judgment and all evil will be drastically dealt with there. Until then my profession is; “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor."
