Blow Ye The Trumptes
Isaiah 1:4; 6-7 KJV
4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward... 6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment. 7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
Isaiah 9:16 KJV
16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
Isaiah 5:20 KJV
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Psalm 9:17 KJV
17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the NATIONS that forgets God.
John Newton (1725-1807)
Author of "Amazing Grace" said, "I think this nation may be considered as the Israel of the New Testament, both with respect of His goodness to us, and our perverse return to Him. He has been pleased to select us, as a peculiar people, and to show amoung us such instances of His protection, His favor, His grace, and His patients, as cannot be paralled in the annals of any other nation."
President Abraham Lincoln
"We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God."
2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
General Robert E. Lee
General Robert E. Lee was a United States Army officer for thirty-two years and among the greatest generals in American history. He is best known for fighting in the American Civil War on behalf of the Confederate Army. General Lee saw that prayer and intercession was a mighty weapon in taking back land from the enemy and winning battles. He was one who not only fought for the nation of America, but he also pleaded earnestly that people would pray everywhere. We must likewise fight for nations on our knees in intercession. This is what Robert E. Lee said:
“Knowing that intercessory prayer is our mightiest weapon and the supreme call for all Christians today, I pleadingly urge our people everywhere to pray. Believing that prayer is the greatest contribution that our people can make in this critical hour, I humbly urge that we take time to pray – to really pray. Let there be prayer at sunup, at noonday, at sundown, at midnight – all through the day. Let us all pray for our children, our youth, our aged, our pastors, our homes. Let us pray for our churches… Let us pray for our nation. Let us pray for those who have never known Jesus Christ and redeeming love, for moral forces everywhere, for our national leaders. Let prayer be our passion. Let prayer be our practice.” I tremble for my country when I hear of confidence expressed in me. I know too well my weakness, that our only hope is in God.
Robert E. Lee
“O Lord, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to all that are about us. Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake. O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies. O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.” – Daniel 9:16-19 (KJV)

The Bible teaches us that God’s anointed clergy, has from the beginning, been at the forefront of establishing their governments by which they would be ruled. Such was the case of Moses and Aaron as well as our forefathers in establishing our government.
History teaches us that when the leaders of nations forsake the Divine Authority given in God’s Word, that nation will eventually experience God’s judgment being brought upon them. We in America are experiencing this in a measured way today. It is time for the clergy across America to wake up and minister to the needs of our nation. David wrote in Psalms 9 verse 17, “The wicked shall be turned into hell and every NATION that forgets God.”
Evangelist, Charles G. Finney, in the mid-1800’s said, if there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discernment, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is degenerate and worldy, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its interest in Christianity, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.” President John Adams said, “It is the duty of the clergy to accommodate their discourses to the issues of the times, to preach against those sins which are most prevalent and to preach in favor of those virtues which are most wanted.
