America, Turn Back to God


O Israel, turn back to God
He will not let you disobey.
O America, turn back to God
He will not let you disobey.

O, land of the free,
Why won’t you turn back to Me?
Repent with true contrition
And I will answer your petition.

Why is it Me you forsake?
Desert your idols and awake!
For I come like a thief in the night.
When will you make your life right?

You used to listen and obey,
But you’ve turned back to wicked ways.
When will you return to Me,
With repentance on your hands and knees?

I will love each of you for all time.
Come home, My child, and be mine!
You’ve waited too long as of yet.
On whom will your whole heart be set?

Your sins are a stench to smell.
Escape from the fires of hell!
I am jealous for your soul,
Yet your heart remains hard and cold.

How great are all of your sins!
I am so saddened within!
And I’m bringing this world to an end.
Surely, judgment will I send.

O Judah, my chosen ones,
Will you continue to run?
To each and every Jew:
You’re precious and I do love you!

This is My message to all.
This could be your final call.
Think about what I have said,
How deep into sin you’ve been led.

O Judah, turn back to God.
He will not let you disobey.
O America, turn back to God.
He will not let you disobey.

-- C.V., girl, age 14

When my daughter was six years old, she once sang a song in our van from her Singing Bible. It went like this: "O Judah, turn back to God. He will not let you disobey." Then she began to ad-lib prophetically, and sang, "O America, turn back to God. He will not let you disobey." So when I rediscovered that today, I asked her if she could expand on that with a poem about it. The poem above is what the Lord gave her.

On April 6, 2013, about two and a half months after my daughter wrote this poem, we both read the following prophecy together in Dumitru Duduman's book, Dreams and Visions, in which the Lord said in 1992: "The sin of the great whore has spread throughout the world.  The stench of her sin has reached me and it will not be long until I will raise the whole Arab world, the Russians and other countries against her, that they may destroy her."  We marveled how these were the very same words she wrote in her poem, even though we never heard this prophecy before.

Please share this poem with a fellow American whom you care about.

Scriptural basis:
"And he will turn many of the sons of Israel back to the Lord their God." (Luk 1:16 NASB)

"We are also men of the same nature as you, and preach the gospel to you that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them." (Act 14:15b NASB)

"...to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me." (Act 26:18 NASB)

"[Paul] kept declaring both to those of Damascus first, and also at Jerusalem and then throughout all the region of Judea, and even to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, performing deeds appropriate to repentance." (Act 26:20 NASB)

"...unless you repent, you will all likewise perish." (Luk 13:5 NASB)

"[If] My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2Ch 7:14 NASB)

Author's note The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through fourteen. The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord inspired these poems in answer to a prayer during illness. If you have not yet read Part I of this poem, The Judgment of Babylon, please do so.  I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master."  The image of Jesus weeping over the world is a profoundly moving one.  Due diligence was done to discover the original artist who made it, but none was located.  It is not known if this photo is copyrighted.   Now I'd like to ask a very important question.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
