Let Abraham Lincoln answer: “We find ourselves in the peaceful possession of the fairest portion of the Earth, as regards fertility of soil, extent of territory, and salubrity of climate.... We …. find ourselves the legal inheritors of these fundamental blessings. We toiled not in the acquirement or the establishment of them.”
Again in his proclamation of April 30, 1863, for a nation-wide day of fasting and prayer, this great president said “It is the duty of nations, as well as men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God … and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord …. We have been the recipients of the choicest blessings of heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation ever has grown; BUT WE HAVE FORGOTTEN GOD! We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in deceitfulness of our hearts, that these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.”
And because Lincoln saw a nation who had forgotten God --- a nation drunk with a success not due to its own efforts --- a nation taking all the credit and glory to itself, this great president called upon the nation for a day of fasting and prayer to confess this national sin before God. The fate of the nation hung in the balance when he issued that proclamation. But God heard and answered that great national prayer offensive --- and the nation was then preserved!
But today the threat to our fate is a thousand times more seriously hanging in the balance. And today we do not have a president or a prime minister with a vision, understanding and courage to bring our nations to their knees!
Abraham Lincoln knew these great material blessings had not been earned, but had been given to our people by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel.
And we should face the facts today and know that we were given all this vast unprecedented material wealth because God promised it, unconditionally to Abraham. And He promised it to Abraham because Abraham obeyed God, kept God's laws and commandments.
The birthright blessings was denied our forefathers after Moses's day because they REFUSED to live by God's and commandments.
And today God warns us, through many prophecies in Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Micah. and many others, that unless we of this generation REPENT of our sins, and turn to Him with fasting, and with weeping, and earnest PRAYER. He will destroy our cities, all our fortresses, with the foreign sword; that He will punish us at the hand of a CRUEL ONE; that we shall be invaded, defeated, reduced to SLAVES!
