God’s message to His covenant children today:Isaiah 59

Sin, Confession and Redemption
1 Listen! The Lord’s arm is not too weak to save you, nor is his ear too deaf to hear you call.

2 It’s your sins that have cut you off from God.
Because of your sins, he has turned away and will not listen anymore.

3 Your hands are the hands of murderers, and your fingers are filthy with sin.
Your lips are full of lies, and your mouth spews corruption.

4 No one cares about being fair and honest.
The people’s lawsuits are based on lies.
They conceive evil deeds and then give birth to sin.

5 They hatch deadly snakes and weave spiders’ webs.
Whoever falls into their webs will die, and there’s danger even in getting near them.

6 Their webs can’t be made into clothing, and nothing they do is productive.
All their activity is filled with sin, and violence is their trademark.

7 Their feet run to do evil, and they rush to commit murder.
They think only about sinning.
Misery and destruction always follow them.

8 They don’t know where to find peace or what it means to be just and good.
They have mapped out crooked roads, and no one who follows them knows a moment’s peace.

9 So there is no justice among us, and we know nothing about right living.
We look for light but find only darkness.
We look for bright skies but walk in gloom.

10 We grope like the blind along a wall, feeling our way like people without eyes.
Even at brightest noontime, we stumble as though it were dark.
Among the living, we are like the dead.

11 We growl like hungry bears; we moan like mournful doves.
We look for justice, but it never comes.
We look for rescue, but it is far away from us.

12 For our sins are piled up before God and testify against us.
Yes, we know what sinners we are.

13 We know we have rebelled and have denied the Lord.
We have turned our backs on our God.
We know how unfair and oppressive we have been, carefully planning our deceitful lies.

14 Our courts oppose the righteous, and justice is nowhere to be found.
Truth stumbles in the streets, and honesty has been outlawed.

15 Yes, truth is gone, and anyone who renounces evil is attacked.

The Lord looked and was displeased to find there was no justice.

16 He was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed.
So he himself stepped in to save them with his strong arm, and his justice sustained him.

17 He put on righteousness as his body armor and placed the helmet of salvation on his head.
He clothed himself with a robe of vengeance and wrapped himself in a cloak of divine passion.

18 He will repay his enemies for their evil deeds.
His fury will fall on his foes.
He will pay them back even to the ends of the earth.

19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west,
And His glory from the rising of the sun;
When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him
.

Our nation is in serious trouble today; and we are at a crossroads of decision.

We have a rogue government in Washington DC, that no longer respects, nor honors God; and who also no longer follows our U.S. Constitution.

Our political leaders today are leading our nation headlong into what they perceive as a “New World Order;” and in their arrogance and ignorance they are spending us into financial ruin, and are leading us into bondage.

On the Islamic front, since this administration has now determined the real terrorist threat against our country today is no longer from Islam, but it is from American citizens, among those “Right-wing Christians and loyal American Veterans, and anyone who opposes abortion and who supports our U.S. Constitution, according to this administration these are the people who are today’s threat.

And so while our government has gone soft on the war on Terrorism, and this administration is trying to play footsie and make nice with our enemies, and all the while has left our southern most border with Mexico wide open, so that God knows what our enemies have brought into our country, and so while all of this has gone on… look now what has happened:


Folks, if there is any time in our history, as a nation, that we need a miracle, it is now!

There is one lesson that I think we all can learn from our Bible, that I think certainly applies to the United States today; and that is in God’s dealings with the children of Israel, we can plainly see how often He would use the enemies of Israel to bring about correction and repentance!

With that said, I think it is plain to see that the forces of evil, within our country, certainly have a head start on us, as they have been working literally for years (over 100 to be exact) to gain their foothold in our country.

There is just no way that we are going to be able to turn all of this around by any other means, except we have a miracle of God!

Satan certainly has the advantage in having had all this time to establish his roots, as we find that his agents are working all over today, within the media, and also within our government, including Congress, and the White House; among both men and women alike, who have yet to have an encounter with the Living God; but have nevertheless hardened their hearts against Him; even as Pharaoh did in Egypt, when confronted by Moses.

But then there is God… and my Bible says “Greater is He who is in us, and with us, than he who is in the world!!!”

Even Pharaoh soon learned that when it comes to God’s covenant children, he soon found out that his own abstinence and stubbornness became his own undoing!

Likewise, our country has long ago violated our covenant with God, a covenant that our forefathers made with Him, that has been the reason for all our many blessings, our prosperity, as a nation, and also our protection.

In our ignorance and in the hardness of our hearts, we have long ago removed those spiritual boundaries and landmarks that were once established by our founding fathers, and our nation today has all but turned its back upon God!

God however is the same yesterday, today, and forever; and the lesson I believe that God would have America learn today, comes right out of the pages of the Bible, in the Book of Numbers, when Balaam the Prophet of God, was asked by King Balag to curse Israel; and the king offered Balaam bribes in order to try and get him to do so.

Balaam told the king that he could not curse what God had blessed; but also added, that in order to get Israel on the outs with God, and to get them to remove themselves out from under God’s hedge of protection and blessing, all Balag had to do was to get Israel to violate and disobey their covenant with God… and that is what the king eventually did.

This is also America’s situation today, and I think a few years ago Billy Graham’s daughter hit the nail on the head:

Billy Graham’s daughter, Anne Graham Lotz in an interviewed on the Early Show, with Jane Clayson, right after 9/11, was asked:

How could a loving God let something like this happen? (regarding the attacks on Sept. 11)

Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said:

I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are; but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.

And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out; and so how can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?

In light of recent events…terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, and her body found recently) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school … the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said OK.

Then someone said teachers and principals better not discipline our children when they misbehave. The school administrators said no faculty member in this school better touch a student when they misbehave because we don’t want any bad publicity, and we surely don’t want to be sued (there’s a big difference between disciplining, touching, beating, smacking, humiliating, kicking, etc.). And we said OK.

Then someone said, let’s let our daughters have abortions if they want, and they won’t even have to tell their parents. And we said OK.

Then some wise school board member said, since boys will be boys and they’re going to do it anyway, let’s give our sons all the condoms they want so they can have all the fun they desire, and we won’t have to tell their parents they got them at school.

And we said OK.”

So what is the answer, and what do we do?

Well I think it is obvious that the solution to America’s problems today, which are massive, starts on our knees in prayer; and truly whatever we do, it is going to take a miracle and an act of God to save our nation!

The road home and our reconciliation back into God’s protection and grace can only happen as we as individuals and as a nation repent, just as Nineveh once did.

Our nation desperately needs both a Revival and a Spiritual Awakening among the church; and only God can do both!

As our enemies, among the Islamic Jihad movement, are setting their traps; and as those within our government are running their Globalist agenda, and are working to undermine our Constitution, and to permanently disable our Republic, let us remember whose in charge!

The fact is, one word from God can turn all of this around!

So let us who are called by His name, continue to humble ourselves and pray; let us turn from our wicked ways; and begin to seek after God’s face; that God would hear our prayers from heaven, and would heal our land, in Jesus name. Amen.

Shalom,

Skip Barland
