Son, I am about to do a shocking thing; My glory is departing from America. Why? Because the leaders have twisted My instructions, violated My laws, and have broken My covenant with them. These leaders suppress My truth, and then claim to be wise. They say they know Me but they refuse to worship Me as God. Therefore, I have allowed their minds to become full of darkness and confusion, and they must pay the price for their sin.
When My glory begins to depart, people will think it is foolish to acknowledge Me. People become full of greed, hate, envy, murder, quarreling, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. They will be backstabbers, haters of Me, insolent, proud, and boastful. They will invent new ways of sinning. They disobey their parents and have little regard for human life. They have no understanding, they break their promises, are heartless, and have no mercy. They know My justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them too.
When My glory is gone people will be allowed to do whatever shameful things their hearts desire. The result of this life style is that they will suffer within themselves the penalty they deserve. Soon I will judge everyone according to what they have done, and I will pour out My anger and wrath on those who live for themselves.
The Good News is that I am the Son of God. I was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit, and I am Lord. My power is still at work, and can save anyone who believes in Me. This Good News tells people they can become right with Me, and this is accomplished by faith. Then they will be given glory, honor and My peace which the world knows nothing about. They will have a changed heart produced by My Spirit. A person with a changed heart seeks praise from Me, not from people.
Lord, help me to see every opportunity that You give me to tell everyone about Your Good News.
