6-10-14 Evidence of America’s Rebellion

As you know, I keep trying to awaken America to the fact that we need to repent for our rebellion so we can have revival. Unfortunately, I often seem to be alone in my belief that America rebelled and when. Why not take a look at how America’s leadership looked to the Lord for help before the rebellion in 1963 and see if we can detect a sea change in America’s attitude towards the Lord then and now.
Since D day was just celebrated, let us look at that period. If you go to Wall Builders you will find the prayer that President Roosevelt prayed with all America on the radio as D Day commenced and if you sign up to get their e mails, you could hear the recording of the radio broadcast to America where this prayer was given: http://www.wallbuilders.com/libissuesarticles.asp?id=144635
D-Day Prayer
by President Franklin D. Roosevelt from the white House – June 6, 1944
Last night, when I spoke with you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our Allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.
And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:
Almighty God: our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.
Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.
They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.
They will be sore tired, but night and by day, without rest – until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men’s souls will be shaken with the violences of war.
For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and good will among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.
Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, thy heroic servant into Thy kingdom.
And for us at home – fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters and brothers of brave men overseas -whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them – help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.
Many people have urged that I call the Nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire if great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.
Give us strength, too – strength in our daily tasks to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and material support of our armed forces.
And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.
And, O Lord, give us faith. Give us faith in Thee; faith in our sons, faith in each other; faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let no the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment – let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.
With Thy blessings, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace – a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil. Thy will be done, Almighty God. Amen.

General Eisenhower, the supreme leader of all the forces engaged in D Day also issued a request that all involved beseech the blessings of Almighty God:
Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!
You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.
Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.
But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war and placed at our disposal great reserves of fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory!
I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than a full Victory!
Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.
Dwight D. Eisenhower

Compare this with today’s leadership where chaplains are asked not to pray in Jesus name, where President Obama cancelled the day of prayer at the White House but later called in Muslims for a day of prayer, where little kids are told in public schools they can’t have their Bible or pray for their lunches and on and on and on!
America has no acceptable future without repentance and revival but that will not happened as long as Satan keeps Christ Church on the sideline afraid of offending people! It is as if this scripture did not exist:
Proverbs 24:25 But to those who rebuke the wicked will be delight, And a good blessing will come upon them.
My Founders Bible has this from General MacArthur: “In this day of gathering storm, as the moral deterioration of political power spreads it’s growing infection, it is essential that every spiritual force be mobilized to defend and preserve the religious base upon which this nation was founded. For it is that base which has been the motivating impulse to our moral and national growth. History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.”
Church, where are you? Are you not an essential force in preserving the Christian base this nation was founded upon? Doesn’t Matthew 16:18 promise that Satan cannot prevail against the Church?
