This is an article I have copied from Pastor Ken of New Day Christian Fellowship's blog:

God's Justice Cannot Sleep Forever!

America is at a crossroad! She is determining which road politically and I believe, spiritually, she will take for the next four or eight years or maybe even more. Her political choice will greatly influence her spiritual temperature.

Will America return to the roots that made her great? Will America awake from her slumber and return to the God of her forefathers? Or will she, with a zombie-like sleep walk, follow after the pied piper of liberalism, socialism and denying the very God that established her and made her great?

There has been an intense, vicious attack for the past forty years against God, Christianity and the historical, orthodox family unit in America. America, her ideals, her heritage and the things that made her great have been challenged, impugned, mocked, attacked and there has been a tremendous effort to change to something completely different from what she was to something that will spell her destruction. It hasn’t happened yet but if America doesn’t awake very soon, the enemies of Christianity, capitalism and the American way of life will turn our nation upside down!

What is the answer to all of this? How can we stop this onslaught of destruction? If we look back on our history, we see America has had tough times, dark days and clouds of destruction hanging over our heads before but we made it through and we can make it through again.

It may be good to look back at the solution to the issues of America in the past. Please read the following words from many years ago:

"We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties 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 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 the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us, then to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness."

These words came from President Abraham Lincoln in 1863.

Yes, a President of the United States said those very powerful and poignant words to our nation during a time of great trial. They could very well be spoken today by any of America’s leaders and would certainly be appropriate!

During one of America’s darkest hours, one of our greatest Presidents called upon the nation to pray to the One we had offended with our pride and arrogance, God. The time has come once again for America to bow her knees to the name of all names, Jesus Christ. It is well past time we fall on our faces and ask for forgiveness and for God to have mercy on America. It is time we call upon Him to intervene in the affairs of our nation and save us from making a very bad decision in the next election.

Noah Webster (remember Webster’s Dictionary?) over two centuries ago (that’s two hundred years) wrote these words:

“All the miseries and evils which men suffer from – vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.”

As you can see the early leaders of our nation were inspired to follow God’s word and gave God the credit for America’s greatness. They also warned if we left our roots, we would suffer.

We continue with one of America’s greatest founding forefathers and presidents; President Thomas Jefferson:

“Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever!”

God’s justice cannot sleep forever! Those words should strike deep into the hearts of men and women all over our nation. God’s justice cannot sleep forever.

America, it is time to wake up and come back to the Lord. It is time for all Christians, young and old alike to begin to sound the alarm. It is time for all of Christians to call for a return to God.

As a Pastor and as a Christian, I am making a National Call for our nation to turn back to God. I call all leaders on all levels of our government to bow their knees and ask for God’s guidance in all decisions they are about to make for our nation.

America! Turn back to God! Before it is too late!

It is time we restore righteousness back in our government and in our country.
Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a shame and a reproach!

If now is not the time….please tell me…when?
