Revelation 3:16-17 “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot: I will spue thee out of my mouth.  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked”

The most dangerous characteristic of our nation is not that we are drifting away from the Lord at an accelerated rate.  It is not that we are a rebellious people.  It is not that we are rejecting Biblical principles.

Instead, it is that we consider ourselves enlightened when in fact we are ignorant.  It is that we are oblivious to our perilous path; American Christians have been fooled along with the rest.  We think that we are rich and increased with goods.  Dangerously, we think that we “have need of nothing.”  In fact, we are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked, though we don’t even know it.  We have replaced Savior reliance with self reliance, and the One who provides for all our needs can take everything away at any moment.

As we drift away from the Lord, we are comfortable.  As we rebel, we are intellectually satisfied.  As we reject Biblical principles, we are convinced that we are not rejecting God Himself.

PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICANS WOULD IMMEDIATELY RECOGNIZE THAT WE HAVE BECOME IGNORANT INSTEAD OF ENLIGHTENED.  Like the Laodiceans, we best “hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” (Rev 3:22).  We best do so soon.  Otherwise, we will only wake up to our wretchedness, misery, poverty, blindness, and nakedness after it is too late.
