What Will Cause a Nation to Forget God?
It’s hard to believe that anyone could forget God! Has our nation forgotten God? What will cause a nation to do this? Could this ever happen to you? I imagine we all forget God more than we would like to admit. Let’s look in the Bible at some things that caused the nation of Israel to forget God.
[Deu.4:5-10] Don’t teach your children
- God is out of our government, our schools, and most of our homes
- My duty Is to teach you [Ps.71.18]
- Your duty is to teach your children and others [Ps.78:1-7]
- We only need God when we are needy
- [Prov.1:32] prosperity is destroying this nation, how is it effecting you?
- [Prov.15:16] Better is little with the fear of the Lord
- Verse 18, it was not your power!
- Pride’s progression: [1Pet.5:5-6] God Giveth Grace to the humble
- [Prov.11:2] First, if you pay attention, God will try to shame you out of it
- [Prov.13:10] Next, if you pay attention, contention comes your way
- [Prov. 16:18] Finally, he will get your attention with destruction and a fall
- [Prov.18:12] haughty before destruction & humility before honor
- It is ANTHING between you and God
- [Col.3:5] Covetousness, wow does that fit?
[Isa.51:12-13] Fear of Man
- [Prov.29:25] Bringeth a snare, [Prov.21:31] safety is of the Lord
- You are not surprised at all how fast someone can forget God when they have fear of man
[Hosea 8:14] Ineffective churches
- They change the word of God with perverted Bibles
- They bring the world into the church with music, movies, etc.
- More and more of “our kind” of churches are doing away with Wednesday night prayer meetings [2 Tim.4:3-4] they will not endure sound doctrine
