Signs of a Nation under Judgment

July 30, 2015

Grace to you! Is America under God’s judgment? Sadly, yes it is. There is a biblical diagnosis and way to measure the current state of our nation.

Romans 1:18 says, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.” We know the bible talks about a future coming judgment but here scripture says God has wrath RIGHT NOW and we can see evidence of His current wrath through three social movements in culture.

Sinful man as he begins to reject the knowledge of God begins to move from worshipping the Creator to worshipping something in creation, even if it’s himself or the planet. (Romans 1:25) This leads to the first stage where “God gives them over” to more sin. In the first stage we see God’s active judgment in giving a people over to sexual immorality. (See Romans 1:24) Have we had our society indulge in sexual immorality? The sexual revolution of the 60’s and continuing immorality of today are evidence of God’s judgment on us as a nation. TV is replete with sexually immoral relationships. People don’t even blush about sexual immorality these days as being wrong in God’s eyes.

If people don’t repent at this first level of judgment, God “gives them over” again to the next level of moral degradation for further judgment. God allows sinful men and women to pursue perverted passions into homosexuality. Romans 1:26,27 talks about men and women leaving natural uses of the opposite sex for degrading passions and burning in their lusts towards those of the same sex. They receive in their “own persons the due penalty of their error.” (Romans 1:27) Sexual disease is rampant but even more so in the homosexual community. Suicide rates are higher in the homosexual community. The sin of homosexuality, as with the other sins listed in Romans 1, are their own judgment. Have we seen a pro-homosexual movement in our country? Indeed we have. We have already crossed phase 2 of God’s judgment on a nation.

And yet if people will not wake up and repent, God has more judgment for them in the third phase of “giving them over” to their sinful desires. Romans 1:28 speaks of all kinds of lawlessness, evil behavior, and unrighteousness people willfully go into in their rejection of God. It’s evident we are now fully sliding into this third and final phase of God’s judgment.

Scripture gives a three-fold phase to know if we are currently under God’s wrath. In recent history, we have fulfilled all three phases. The choice is clear for our nation: either we repent of our rejection of Christ and His gospel which is manifested in these various forms of sin or we prepare ourselves for greater wrath at the coming of the Lord Jesus. “From Jesus’ mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.” (Revelation 19:15-16)
