Return to God

‘Return to me,’ declares the LORD Almighty, ‘and I will return to you,’ says the LORD Almighty. Zecheriah 1:3

Throughout history the nation of Israel has left God , then returned to him, then left him again, and so on. What we learn from the books of Isaiah and Jeremiah, is that God is very merciful however if you don’t want him in your life then he won’t be there.
God has giving us the not only the gift of life but also free will. As this was displayed with Adam and Eve. Even though they were told not to eat from the forbidden tree, they were able to by their choice.
It’s the same with us today, even though God is our creator nobody is required to follow him. If you choice to be an Atheist and disregard all of God’s commandments, you have the free will to do so.
However you can’t serve two masters. If you’re not following God then you’re following Satan. There really are no other options. Those who say there is no God and don’t follow any are then making themselves a God which is Satanic. Do you create yourself? How could you possibly be above your maker?
I believe America is in the trouble we are because the majority of America has left God. Past generations are living the good life and get complacent. When times are good most people forget God exists only when there is a tragedy.
So then Parents forgot to teach their children about God, and they don’t teach their children. Eventually you have a Godless nation. Without the Word of God there are no morals, no standards by which to live by. So Man begins to create their own standards and morals, which most likely are corrupted.
This is what we’re seeing today in America, most of Gods standards are out the window. Anything goes in America today. But just as we saw with the Greek Empire, and the Roman Empires, the Empires eventually fall apart. As I talked about in a previous post, a nation divided among itself will fail.
But there is hope. As God said to the prophets of Israel , return to him and he will return to you. Jesus paid the price for our sins, now we need to do our part, repent our sins and follow the Word of God.
