Is There One

The Book of Ezekiel tells of a priest and prophet by the same name, that ministers during the darkest days of Judah's history: the seventy year period of Babylonian captivity.  

God is upset with the United States.  Why? 
We have become united in forcing God out of our schools.  
We have allowed praying to become passé.  No longer allowed.  
We have passed laws supporting and legalizing same-sex marriages.   

Sin, is the new standard for living among the people.  God has clearly reached the point where enough is enough, and is now become ready to judge US (people 'US', United States 'US').  
Israel fell into the sin of spiritual idolatry, continuously.  Their history is ripe with accounts.  Is not America in the shadows of Israel?  Yes.  We have fallen in line with wordly thinking and spiritual fornication.  

W H E R E     I S    G O D?  
God is standing at the ready...to judge.
Chapter 22  (v.4) "You have become guilty by the blood which you have shed, and have defiled yourself with the idols which you have made.  You have caused your days to draw near, and have come to the end of your years; therefore I have made you a reproach to the nations, and a mockery to all countries. (V.5) those near and those far from you will mock you as infamous and full of tumult."
Even though these words are directed at the nation of Israel, how can we not see America in the subtexts?  Go one step further and include ALL the countries of the world.  
Morality is non-existent.  Compassion is non-existent.  Peace is non-existent.  Because God is non-existent in the hearts of mankind.  

W H E R E     I S    G O D?  
God is standing at the ready...to forgive.
Same chapter (v.30)  "So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one."  
HE found no one worthy among men.  
Praise be to the God of heaven.
HE found ONE in heaven willing to stand in the gap before Him.  
HE found ONE worthy to carry the banner.
HE found ONE to bare our sin and shame
HIS name is Jesus Christ.  
Only those within the body of Christ ,can present Christ, to this lost and perverse generation.
Only those of this earthly royal priesthood, can stand before the MOST HIGH.  
If you are numbered among them, will YOU be the one to take the message of sin, salvation and repentance to the world?  
IS THERE ONE?
