According to lots of sources, economic collapse is a real possibility soon—perhaps even in the next two months. The national debt, under the Obama administration, has risen a whopping 70%!! It was 10 trillion when he took office; it is now 18 trillion! That means every taxpayer’s share of the national debt is over $150,000!!
Add to the deadly debt, the attack on religious liberty. Homosexual socialists are now working hard to destroy the church, which is the last bastion of defense against their movement toward a one world order.
Couple all this with the move toward martial law by the Obama administration. It seems his desire is to remove elections and bring us under the control of this “new order”—which is actually gross disorder in government.
In the midst of this horrible outlook for our nation, is there any hope for our homes, our churches, our governments? To that I say a resounding yes! God still rules over all these current events and the deceived people who are working their own destruction. The Scripture says,
“The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.”
Though disordered government continues to attack the home and the very concept of marriage, they are going to ultimately find that you can’t tamper with God’s institution of the home without disastrous results for education, the economy, and government itself. The Bible states plainly in Psalms 33:
“… the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.”
God established marriage and the home in the Garden of Eden. He made it between a man and a woman for life; and no other thing that is called marriage will succeed in the long run. People who hate God and the Bible will find out from experience their new idea of “marriage” will bring only disaster to them and society. The Bible admonishes us:
“Stand…in the…the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.”
The attack on the church is nothing new in history. However, it is new to America. But remember: America’s Founders believed in God’s Church, and the Biblical order in which it was to operate. They created the greatest nation in world history by respecting and being part of that Church. And Signer of The Declaration of Independence, John Witherspoon, the President of Princeton, stated:
“Whoever is an avowed enemy of God, I [hesitate] not to call him an enemy of his country.”
(Witherspoon, John. May 17, 1776, in his sermon entitled, “The Dominion of Providence over the Passions of Men” delivered at The College of New Jersey (Princeton). Varnum Lansing Collins, President Witherspoon (New York: Arno Press and The New York Times, 1969), I:197-98.

Jesus died for His Bride, the Church. When you attack her, you attack Him: And that is a very dangerous thing to do!
The attack on civil government has been raging in this nation since the 1920’s. Socialists have been working a plan to destroy our Biblical Republic. Our national government is nearly gone. Many of our state governments have basically surrendered to socialists. Is there any hope for our civil governments? Yes! There is! The Bible says,
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
(2 Chronicles 7:14)
Our nation’s governments can be healed if we—the people who know God in the new birth—will repent! Indeed, I watched on the 22nd of August, 2015, between 5-10,000 people humble themselves on Kentucky’s state Capitol grounds and pray this very verse to God as a prayer of repentance! If we were genuinely repenting, as God knows for certain, revival and a healing will begin in our state. The question isn’t, “can our land be healed?” The question is, “will we, God’s people, repent!” Remember God promises those who do:
“Say ye to the righteous, ‘It will be well with you; you will eat the fruit of your doings’.”
Think about it; because if you don’t, someone else will do your thinking for you—and for your children! And you won’t like what that brings to you. I’m Don Pinson; this has been Think About It.
