      WHERE ARE GOD'S PEOPLE?

      "Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing'-
      and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked--."
      Revelation 3:17
      Where are God's people? A country said to be built on Christian values; a
      country where we trusted in God. As a community we helped our neighbors; as a
      village, we raised our children; as a people of integrity, we could feed the
      hungry and house a stranger. As a nation who had values, not everything was
      acceptable and not everything was tolerable. There were morals and limits;
      boundaries and standards.  That's who we were, but who have we become?  

      Where are God's people? We looked out for each other, now we look over each
      other. We taught our children to honor their parents, and to submit to
      authority. Now our children do what they want, and say what they feel. Children
      prayed in the schools and learned in the classroom; now they kill in the schools
      and sell drugs in the classroom. We believed in God and prayed during adversity,
      now we believe in ourselves and stop at nothing to get what we want. That was
      then and this is now.

      Where are God's people? Somewhere down the line we became complacent and
      comfortable; we became lazy and slothful; we let go of our values and
      compromised our beliefs. Now everything is acceptable and all things are
      suitable. We agree that everyone should be who they choose and do what they
      feel. Nothing is wrong and everything is right. We accept all behavior; all
      lifestyles; every form of idolatry and every kind of sin. Instead of trusting in
      God, we trust in man. Instead of standing on God's Word, we fall for the devil's
      tricks. What's happened America? We were strong and blessed; we were wealthy and
      admired. That's where we were; but here's where we are.

      We have decided to serve other gods and push away the Only True God. As we fall
      further into sin, we are falling further into destruction. We compromise His
      Word, so that we can go along to get along. We used to have one God, but now we
      serve many.
      .
      Where are God's people? U.S.A. We are Unrestrained, Self-seeking and
      All-embracing.
      Is God pleased at how we have put Him aside and embraced all that is contrary to
      His Word? Is God pleased that we have become too ashamed to say His name in
      public and too weak to fight for His principles in our communities? Is God
      pleased that He has blessed us tremendously, and we forgot about blessing Him at
      all?
      He must be saddened and angry at how we have taken Him for granted. It is not
      o.k. to combine every religion and every form of idolatry...God is Holy and cannot
      be a part of the unclean, impure lives we are living. Why is everything falling
      apart? Because we loved the creation more than the Creator. Because God is
      trying to get our attention! What has to happen in order for us to remember who
      we are and who He is?
      Where are God's people?
      "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent." Rev.
      3:19
