A Nation without God

midnight hour trumpetThere is so much happening lately in our country…so many things being considered politically correct, when our Bible deems them sinful. We all sin and come short of what God commands of us. But the difference is when we knowingly do wrong and live a sinful lifestyle because we desire to fulfill our own lusts of the flesh. 

Those who willfully chose to live against the commandments of God will be thrown into the lake of fire with Satan and his angels. This nation has forgotten Who gave us freedom and loved us enough to die for our sins. He gladly offered each one of us His unconditional love, but He also gave us free will. Unfortunately, along with that independence come consequences. He forgives those who turn from their sins and live for Him from that moment. 

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for His return! I’m sick and weary of this nation’s pride and self-gratification. It seems nothing is a sin any longer. Our children and grandchildren will never know the childhood we knew. Sinful pleasure is viewed as a normalcy on television, in the movies, and on every street corner. I want to just be a wall of protection for each of them, so they won’t suffer what’s to come. God is NOT mocked. He will bring justice to America. Get your heart right with Jesus and live according to His Word. He’s coming back for a bride without spot or wrinkle! Time is very short.

Troubled Nation

Can you detect that sound now?
It echoes loud and clear—
A resonance alerting us
The end of time is near.

 I’m sure you feel the panic
In hearts of those unsaved.
We sense the world has lost its way;
With sin, its road is paved.

 Observe those callous leaders
Who care for wealth and fame.
Eliminating liberty,
They cause our nation shame.

 America, once lovely—
One nation, under God—
Is now submerged in dissonance;
And God won’t spare the rod.

 Great fear surrounds our homeland,
Unlike those years gone by.
Although some may not understand,
We know the reason why.

 America left God out—
The One we truly need.
Man’s trust was placed in mammon,
And hearts were filled with greed.

 Oh, what is that I’m hearing?
The sound of trumpets roar!
A welcomed call unto my ears,
Unlike I’ve heard before!

 The Lord‘s return’s upon us;
It’s time to watch and pray.
America needs Jesus NOW…
Before that fateful day!

About Heart Written: Doris Hayes Gibson

My name is Doris Hayes Gibson. My life revolves around Jesus Christ, my Creator, my Redeemer, the Lord of my worship, and the Hope for my tomorrow. My passion is to illustrate God's beauty and love through poetry and song lyrics. I have created hundreds of framed poetry images. Some were gifts of encouragement; some to honor a memory of a loved one, and some were created to help someone celebrate a special occasion. After living out of state for several years, I am, once again, residing in the beautiful Upstate of South Carolina. I have three grown children, five grandchildren, and a blue tortoiseshell Burmese cat. Illustrating God's beauty and love through words of poetry is my deepest passion. Although I have always enjoyed writing, it wasn't until 2005 (when God shut one door) that I realized He was opening the door of a tremendous opportunity to see Him use me in a spectacular way. While I do not claim any greatness of ability in any shape or form, I do know that God brought me through many trials and heartaches for such a time as this. I am now able to share this gift of poetry, with which He has blessed me, to magnify Him through blessing others. I Peter 4:10,11 states: "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen." Through my writings, my main goal is to edify Christ. If I have touched one person in a positive way through this ministry, I know it will be worth every effort I put into my work. As I have said before, "This is My Labor of Love...but God's Work of Art." My first book, Heart Written - Breaking Free, was published in November of 2012. It is my prayer that it will reach countless souls and bless lives in tremendous ways. In 2014, my second book, Heart Written - Calling Me, was published. My third and fourth books, Heart Written - Cleansing River and Heart Written - Guarded Treasures, are now available. Please visit any online bookstore to purchase my books or contact me for your personally signed copies of my Heart Written series.
