Matthew 25:19. “After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.”
(I’m taking a two-week break from work, which means I probably won’t be up as early as usual. You’ll still see my posts here, but later in the morning. I’m being lazy!)
There always comes a day of reckoning. The wait was long, but eventually the master did return, and he called his servant to Him to make account of what they had done with the talents he entrusted to them.
Jesus IS coming! The wait has been long, and may be longer yet. Many of us, as we see the darkness that is pervading our beloved country, hope and pray that His coming won’t be delayed much longer. However, America really has no right to expect be spared from anti-Christian persecution, any more than any other people in any other time or place. We have lost our way as a nation, making Christianity politically incorrect. We have allowed a very vocal minority of those who hate God to persuade us that we have to be tolerant of everyone except those who love God. We have twice elected a man to sit in the White House who makes no effort to hide his disdain for Christianity or for America, for that matter. Persecution has already arrived on our shores, people, just in case you haven’t been paying attention. Anti-semitism and anti-Christianity go hand in hand.
Our day of reckoning, as individuals and as a nation, is coming. When? I’ve no idea. I only know that we cannot turn our backs on all that is right and holy and expect God to go on blessing America.
