President Abraham Lincoln (with the approval of Congress) declared:
“It is the duty of nations . . . to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope…
that genuine repentance will lead to mercyTruth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.”

A Message to America’s Leaders

Excerpt from Chapter 26 of God’s Answer For America:
Mr. President and all of America’s civic leaders and judges, God is calling America back to Him and His ways (the Founder and foundations of our nation).

Many of America’s great leaders before you, such has George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, declared it is our “duty” to honor and obey the will of God as the “overruling power” of nations. This is why we see the founding documents of our nation based on God’s ways and universal laws.

“Righteousness exalts a nation” and that is why our nation rose to power so quickly and was so strong and blessed (Prov. 14:34). However, the progressive abandoning of God and His ways through anti-biblical legislation, judicial decisions, and even some executive actions are having the exact opposite effect. Is it any wonder why our troubles and problems continue to multiply and escalate?

Mocking God and Fundamentally Changing America
Imagine if Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were alive today to witness what has become of our nation? If they could see many of our nation’s leaders mocking God’s Word, calling biblical values “old-fashioned” and no longer “relevant,” while at the same time celebrating and championing anti- biblical values in the name of “tolerance” and “political correctness,” they would no doubt stand stunned in utter disbelief! And, if they could see today’s political leaders (including our current president) attempting to “fundamentally transform the United States of America,” they would surely be outraged!

The Path We Are On
Sadly, for decades America has been steadily rejecting God and His righteous ways (that lead to life, peace, and blessing), and that is why America is now eating the fruit of her own ways leading down a path of great sin, self- destruction, and devastating judgment. The reality is, if America does not change course quickly, we will see…

What’s coming next, if…
• Economic collapse
• Greater natural disasters and storms
• Greater civil unrest, riots,and blood in our streets
• Enemy attacks and war from shore to shore
• The nation’s destruction and demise

Will these things happen on your watch and under your governing? Or will you be instrumental in helping to restore righteousness and the favor and blessings of God upon our land? We pray it is the latter! The truth is, until America turns back to her true Founder (God), these things (listed above) are going to escalate and culminate together to bring our nation to its knees.

America’s Only Hope
God will do whatever He must do to get our nation’s attention and bring America to her knees and back to Him. And, God is saying to you, and the nation:

A nation has looked to a man for hope. True hope and change begins with Me.
Come in unity, in humility before Me. When you bow your knee and seek to honor and please Me in all things, then I will bless your land.

Honor God and He will honor you. (1 Samuel 2:30)

The Hard Way or Easy Way?
Mr. President and all of America’s civic leaders, you have a choice; the easy way or the hard way. Please do not wait until America ends up like the prodigal in the pigpen with no other way out before coming to your senses. We humbly and urgently implore you to rise up like the great American leaders who have gone before you (like President Abraham Lincoln


) and lead this nation in humble and genuine repentance, then once again honor God and His ways. The following shows how to begin doing this.

President George Washington (with Congress), acknowledged God as the source of America’s blessings and strength:
“It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God,  to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His  protection and favor.”
Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation, October 3, 1789

To America’s Leaders: What Must Happen

In order to stop the self-destruction of our nation and greater judgments of God (see above) to cease, America must do three things:

1. Turn Back to God in Genuine Repentance – as One Nation Under God
President Lincoln’s (and Congress’) leadership example is worth repeating:
It is the duty of nations . . . to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope…that genuine repentance will lead to mercy….Truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord. . . . It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.

2. Commit to Honor God and His ways: A New Declaration!
Just as God has called the leaders in His house (the American church) to their knees in humble repentance and prayer and to do things His way, God is also calling those in the White House and our government to their knees in humble repentance and to lead our nation back to Him and His righteous ways. We will outline what we believe this renewed commitment should include in a “New Declaration” below.

3. Stand with Israel
If we are to honor God and see His great favor and blessing upon our land, then it is critical that America commit to bless and support Israel, especially regarding Jerusalem (the “apple of God’s eye,” [Zech. 2:8-9]). For God will bless those who bless her, and be against those that are against her (Gen. 12:3).

We must also realize Israel and Jerusalem is the very land and city Yeshua, Jesus Christ, will reign from when He returns. It is His land and His city, no one else’s! So those that oppose or try to divide Israel and Jerusalem are opposing God.

A NEW DECLARATION TO RESTORE THE FOUNDATIONS

Our Founding Fathers fashioned our nation’s Declaration of Independence by acknowledging God as “Creator” and “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence.” America’s turning back to God should also be an official act, a new declaration; not of independence but a “declaration of dependence upon Almighty God,” as once phrased by Billy Graham.

Once again, America needs to return to her legacy of “dependence upon God.” America needs a “new declaration” that acknowledges Almighty God and His Son Jesus Christ and our true dependence is upon Him, as our Founding Fathers once did—an official declaration so as a nation we will never forget or depart from God and His ways again, a “new declaration” that includes:

• America’s Leaders to publicly and humbly unite, bowing our knee and declaring once again we are “One nation Under God.”

• To restore original intent, declaring “the separation of church and state” as a term to keep government out of God’s house and affairs, not to separate God from our governmental, judicial, and civil duties—to seek God’s wisdom and operate in His ways, for as proven throughout history, God’s ways bring true life and true liberty, blessing, and happiness that lasts.

• Declare the restoration to freely honor God, the name of Jesus Christ, and biblical truth and values in our government, in our courts, and in our schools—the freedom to include these and honor God without hindrance.

• To restore prayer in our schools, acknowledging our dependence upon Almighty God and thanking Him for His goodness, blessings, and protection upon us, our parents, our teachers, and our country—the freedom to pray without hindrance.

• To restore God’s Word (Holy Bible and Ten Commandments) to a place of honor in our schools, the public arena, and our courts—the freedom to read or display these without hindrance.

• To restore the sanctity and protection of human life inside and outside the womb; this must include national repentance and pleading for God’s mercy and forgiveness for allowing the murder and bloodshed of over fifty-five million innocent and defenseless children in the womb—ending legal abortion in America immediately, demonstrating the fruit of true repentance.

• To restore the sanctity and the definition of marriage as only between one man and one woman, just as God designed it and His Son Jesus Christ declared it was from the beginning of creation (Matt. 19:4).

• Declaring the pursuit of obeying the two greatest commandments; to love God and honor Him in every way and to love people, which includes helping the poor, needy, sick, broken, orphan, and widows in a biblical way.

• Declaring we will pray and seek God’s wisdom regarding issues such as fair healthcare, and fair taxation. Note: When we honor God, honor life, and His ways, then the solutions we need as a nation will come. God has all the answers!

• Declaring our unwavering support for Israel.

Mr. President and Congress, again we humbly implore you; if you truly love our nation, then please don’t harden your hearts against God and His righteous ways. You must remember that He has the power to both exalt and humble you. Please do not wait to respond until the economy has collapsed, greater natural disasters are ravaging the land, enemies are attacking our cities, tanks are in the streets, and there is war from shore to shore.

The sooner you, and we as a nation, humble ourselves before God, honoring Him and His righteous ways, the sooner God will respond and bring healing and restoration to our nation!

We must all remember both the goodness and severity of God and that one day you will stand before the Judgment Seat and give an account of your stewardship of this nation.

Webster’s promise and warning to future America

Daniel Webster, a famous attorney and a leading political figure of the United States house and senate, served as secretary of state for three presidents. He is also considered one of the greatest orators in American history. He issued a promise and warning regarding an attempt to separate teachings of the Bible from the education of youth. Webster’s warning rings just as true and relevant to America today:

If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper…If we, and our [future generations], shall be true to the Christian religion, if we and they shall live always in the fear of God, and shall respect His Commandments….we may have the highest hopes of the future fortunes of our country…

But if we and our [future generations] reject religious instruction and authority; violate the rules of eternal justice, trifle with the injunctions of morality, and recklessly destroy the political constitution which holds us together, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.

We wish all of America and our nation’s leaders could hear those words, especially in light of what God said in the “America, America!” prophecy, and the urgent message of this book!
