In years past many individuals left the United States to travel to various destinations around the world to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those that were native to the continents they reached.
Even today there are some who continue this effort and go on to do great things for God in foreign lands. There is still a need for evangelism in many foreign lands, but America has now become a desperate mission field as well.
A nation founded and established on Biblical principles that has never been perfect, but yet rooted in Bible scripture in many ways has now become committed to eliminating the beliefs of the founding fathers.
Prayer has been removed from schools and the Bible outlawed in the classrooms and the results are an educational system in complete ruin and teaching atheistic beliefs to our children.
Lust and perversion portrayed in abominable entertainment has led our men to abandon their families for the pursuit of pleasure and young ladies have lost all sense of worth and allowed themselves to be degraded in humiliating ways.
Death and destruction has been glorified to the point some have chosen to imitate these acts and committed horrible atrocities.
Greed is bleeding the nation dry economically which reminds us of what we were told would occur, (because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold, Matthew 12:24). With no remorse some will rob you of all that you have worked for by utilizing financial schemes.
False prophets are running ramped telling the people what they want to hear for the sake of gaining riches, fame and notoriety. Due to their itching ears, (2 Timothy 4:3) many flock to hear the lies and words rooted in prosperity rather than Bible scripture.
The church fails to realize that if we would unite in prayer, seek God and cross denominational lines, we can be more than conquerors and push back the darkness that is consuming the nation.
Voting is valuable, but we look at our chosen political candidates as if they can save the nation when in reality only God can turn things around. So many decisions are being made by our leaders with no consideration of what pleases God and what He desires.
Many are dying each day without knowing Jesus Christ, and never accepting Him as Lord and Savior during their lifetime. Thousands of churches close permanently each year. People exit church doors daily never to return again. Many more have never stepped inside of a church before or had anyone come to them and personally share the Gospel.
America desperately needs individuals who will seek God for direction in evangelizing the citizens within its borders. The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.
