Is there still hope for the United States?


Dr. Raymon Oliver - Old Paths Baptist Church



I love my native land of the United States, I thank God the creator and sustainer of all things (Colossians 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.) I am thankful that by His grace I was born in the small town of Bowling Green, I have been as far north and east that I could go, but only as far west as Missouri. I hope to see the Grand Canyon, the foothills of North Dakota, the ocean from the coasts of California, Oregon and the state of Washington.

I am afraid that it may never come to pass, not because of my limitations, but the possibility of this great nation The United States of America being destroyed by the exceedingly rapid moral decline of this nation.

As stated before, God our creator saw from His heavenly throne the wickedness of mankind and decided to destroy this beautiful place we call Earth. (Genesis 6:5 – And God saw the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth and it grieved him at his heart.

And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.)

God destroyed His beautiful creation because of the vile lifestyle and wickedness done by the human race He created.

Yet, God, in His loving mercy, chose a man by the name of Noah (But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Genesis 6:8) to repopulate the Earth. But once again mankind failed to right in the sight of the creator. Nations arose and fell, Babylon, Meads and Persian, Greece and even the Roman empire all have crumbled and fell because of their immoral and vile lifestyles.

They all had great wealth and powerful armies, but God destroyed them like a candle is melted by fire.

This nation, the United States, is not different. We are at an unprecedented state of immorality. Topics that were not even mentioned among men and women and never when children were present, are now made legal by our ungodly Government and those who hold offices in that government, along with the movie and television industries, and the media of our airways and the publications of immoral filth seen at the checkout counters in our stores.

How long will our God, who formed and blessed this nation starting in the year of 1776, allow us to continue without bringing judgment on us as He has so many other nations and empires?

Do I believe if there is still hope for the United States? Yes, I do and it is recorded in the divine inspired Word of God.

(2 Chronicles 7:14 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.)

It is up to His people, Christians all over this great nation, to comply.
