If you have ever read or studied the Bible’s last book, you will find something fascinating. Revelation writes about several countries that exist today, but the United States and or a western influence is not mentioned. This absence has led many scholars to suggest America’s run as one of the greatest nations on earth will end before Jesus returns.
Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved, Psalm 80:19.
During the 2016 presidential election, many citizens likely felt the United States was on the verge of falling apart. Whether its was inappropriate behavior, scandals or vicious ads, the future did not look promising. Nonetheless, the votes of the forgotten man and woman may be a sign that America still has a pulse.
Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? – Psalm 85:6
In the Old Testament, Psalmists provided some hope for Israelites who where doubting the lack of God’s presence in their day. The verses above can also be applied to Americans who share similar feelings. Although I don’t know what the future holds, God is the source for revival today. Therefore, whether you are a Hillary or Trump supporter, may the Holy Spirit awaken dead and dying souls to complete the will of God for this nation.
