New Direction

Are we inviting Godís Righteous Wrath, on this present elected path?
Concerned not, of what we should be, but whatís in it for you and me.
Sold on a prosperity we should have, which is only a temporal suave,
Ignoring the Laws God decreed, His views and ways, we do not heed.

Godís people were too, destroyed, when in ignorance they employed,
A king to reign over them as a land, forsaking Godís Protective Hand,
Desiring a king, like other nations, they saw no spiritual complications.
Not seeing that their new direction, towards God, was a total rejection.

Godís Holy people had lost connection, with The God of their election,
One nation selected from the earth, to be for the Lord of special worth,
As He wanted to bless the other lands, through this work of His hands,
By God using but one tiny nation, to reach all others with His Salvation.

Not mentioned in Godís Revelation, is our richly blessed Gentile nation,
One nation from among the rest, which by God, has been truly blessed.
We once too sought Godís direction, within every choice and selection,
Back when as one nation under God, we truly sought His staff and rod.

Does our nation still in God abide, or have we pushed His Word aside?
As the worldís greatest Gentile power, are we moving to our final hour?
My friend, if this be true, let us learn, and back to God, we must return,
To be for God a much needed light, while we are in this darkened night.

He's coming very soon, the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Waiting in Him with Great Expectation,  Bob Gott

I agree, Bob.  Our people have been forsaking our firm foundation while chasing dreams of self gratification.  We need to return to our founding fathers belief and trust.  

  God bless,

Beautifully written.  Hopefully everyone will come to this understanding and fully grasp that all of us need God.

Be Blessed

We all need to be moving in the same direction of God, for He never stands still. --Joe

I enjoyed your comparison of Israel and King Saul to the time in which we live today and I especially agreed with your appeal that we should be God's light in a world that is ever darkening.

Thank you for sharing and God bless,

-Bob
