There are still a few righteous in America. That is about the only reason God has not destroyed this nation.
Genesis 18:32 And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake.
I Will Not Destroy it for Ten
There are still a few righteous in America. That is about the only reason God has not destroyed this nation. God was going to hold off destroying Sodom for just ten people out of who knows how many thousands. God can do a lot with a few at times. Sodom just did not have as many as Abraham figured it would have. He knew that Lot was backsliden, he just did not know how backsliden. Abraham figured that Lot at least would have won a few people to the Lord in his immediate circle of friends. In reality, I am not sure Lot’s influence reached anyone including his wife and daughters that left with him in an act of mercy. Really the Lord did not even need to get Lot out of there per the promise he made to Abraham. The Lord often has mercy on us when we least deserve it. That is where America is today. God is just having mercy on a small remnant that is probably not doing all that great just like Lot.
Let Not the Lord Be Angry
I pray that the Lord is not angry with America just like Abraham beg of God when talking of Lot. The Lord has every right to be angry with us the way the church is living. It is of the Lord’s mercy that we are not consumed. God was going to spare His judgment for just ten people. I bet your church may have ten people living for God. You need to thank God for them. They may just be keeping the judgment of God from falling. We need godly men and women who will stand in the gap today and keep Sodom from being judged by fire and brimstone. I hope you are not like Lot, living too close to the world and vexing your righteous soul with the filthy conversation of the wicked. You need to get as far from the world as you can. You can’t leave this world but you sure should not be in love with it and go along with it.
