Life Through Faith or Death by Unbelief
“He said to them, ‘You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am he you will die in your sins.’” -John 8:23, 24. ESV Study Bible.
“Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.
“But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it – the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
“Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law. Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, since God is one – who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith. Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.” -Romans 3:19-31. ESV Study Bible.
Death by guns; death by abortion; death by sickness and poverty due to the inequity of vast worldly wealth in the hands of the few and massive destitution in the lives of the many. Can lawmakers turn away from “the god of this world” [which world lies in wickedness] and write laws for the good and wellbeing of all the living and for the health of the earth “and peace among men”? Can lawmakers become free of the influence of Babylon the great prostitute who reigns over the nations; and instead, serve True God? Can the lawmakers repent of the love of money and power and politics — which corrupts government – and do what is right in the sight of True God? Nineveh repented at the preaching of Jonah – and God did not destroy them. Can the United States of America also repent of her vast iniquities and be saved by True God? Can we the people go to our rooms and close the door; and individually and privately pray to True God our heavenly Father in the name of the Lord Jesus confessing to Him that we are sinners; and ask Him to forgive us; and become believers in the gospel of Jesus Christ? Or, is this country too committed to being secular and profane and ungodly? Do the people of this country love money and power and guns and abortions more than True God? Would the people of this country prefer to lose their souls and their salvation and their freedom and their humanity and their country rather than repent and believe in the True God of heaven and earth? Do the people of this country prefer to “go down with The Titanic” rather than getting into the humble lifeboat of believing in His name; and waiting for their salvation in Christ Jesus the Lord at His Second Coming?
Do the people in their love of self and pride and arrogance prefer to scoff at the gospel of Jesus Christ; and instead trust in themselves and their guns?
Do the people prefer to act like the children of the devil in murdering their unborn children; and lying to themselves — “being deceived and deceiving others” – as Russia is doing to her neighbor Ukraine – murdering and destroying her neighbor country – as abortions are murdering multi-millions of American unborn children over several decades?
America The Beautiful (Lyrics)
We cannot save our country by politics – but by individually becoming believers in True God – and letting Him do the saving of us [U.S.] and of our Country. Can we, by the grace of True God through faith in his Son, yet become The United States of AmericaL? A is for Alpha; L is for LORD.
“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay everyone for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
“Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” -Revelation 22:12-15. ESV Study Bible.

“The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.” -Acts 17:30, 31. ESV Study Bible.
Does this country prefer to “stick to its own guns” rather than believe in The Living God?
“Thus says the LORD: ‘Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD.’”
“Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will punish all those who are circumcised merely in the flesh – Egypt, Judah, Edom, the sons of Ammon, Moab, and all who dwell in the desert who cut the corners of their hair, for all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in heart.”
“Hear the word that the LORD speaks to you, O house of Israel. Thus says the LORD:
“Learn not the way of the nations, nor be dismayed at the signs of the heavens because the nations are dismayed at them, for the customs of the peoples are vanity.” -Jeremiah 9:23-10:1-3a. ESV Study Bible.
Does this country prefer to kill its own children by abortion and pay the killers by medical insurance corporation payments? Does this country prefer freedom to sin in every possible way rather than turning to True God in repentance and in faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ? Does this country prefer worldly false religion rather than the faith of Jesus Christ and trusting in him who is True God?

“For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her righteousness shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. The nations will see your righteousness, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will bestow. You will be a crown of splendor in the LORD’S hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God. No longer will they call you Deserted, or name your land Desolate. But you will be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for the LORD will take delight in you, and your land will be married. As a young man marries a maiden, so will your sons marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you. I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, gives yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.” -Isaiah 62:1-7. ESV Study Bible.

“Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.” -John 16:7-11. ESV Study Bible.
