We are confronted with a dangerous enemy. The erosion of the American family and the moral values that define us as a people and a nation have been under attack for more than 50 years. Redefining what constitutes marriage, accepting that gender is determined by personal choice, excluding the voice and choice of people who appose changes in America’s moral history. Taking God out of every resemblance of government, schools, and public offices. Degrading the United States until it no longer resembles its former visage intended by the framers of our Constitution.
This generation has no idea of the former glory of America when people really cared about their neighbors and lived together in peace. The line between morality and immorality has been eroded until its barrier is no loner detectable by young people today.
It is seldom understood why morality is so important to the survival of our nation. Only when we examine the history of the world do we discover that no nation has survived which permitted perversion to be normalized, and the sanctity of human life diminished.

President Trump was recently gathered with many of his military leaders and made the statement: “This is the calm before the storm?” Some pundits have conjectured that this is an indication of an impending war. For those who watch the world through the lens of Bible Prophecy, we have come to understand that Donald Trump may be a sort of Cyrus from the Old Testament who God used during perilous times to accomplish His will.
The statement, “calm before the storm,” is very similar to Paul’s declaration in 1 Thessalonians 5:3: ” For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.” Paul made this statement in context with the term: “Day Of The Lord,” an inference to the seven year Tribulation Period described by Daniel in chapter 9. At the end of the age, a world leader will appear on the scene who will make a covenant of peace between Israel and the surrounding nations for seven years. During the first three and one-half years there will be a tremendous time of peace on the earth. Suddenly, at the mid-point of the seven years, this world leader will command the world to worship him as God. The Book of Revelation, Jesus, and Daniel, all state that this will begin the Time of Great Tribulation in which two-thirds of the people on earth will die by twenty-one horrendous judgements.

There are certain times in the history of a nation that require nothing less than prayer. For those who do not understand the power or reason for prayer it is seen as weakness and inaction. For those who have a relationship with God, prayer is a vital link between people in distress and a faithful and capable friend during urgent times of need.
People often think of prayer as an attempt to change the mind or heart of God. In fact, prayer is only intended to change the heart of the one praying. God already wants to help, bless, and provide for people. All He is waiting for is for those who trust in Him to ask. We might wonder why, if God wants to do good, He doesn’t just do what needs to be done. It is important to God that we become involved in His plans for human life. He has made us like Him in that we also have caring hearts and a desire to see good in our world. He makes us co-workers with Him to accomplish His will.
