Guest: Sam Rohrer
As Jim noted as he opened the show, we are living in perilous times. These are times that the Apostle Paul warned young pastor Timothy about. He talked about how men will be lovers of themselves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy and more, all of which you can read about in 1 Timothy It all reads like a commentary on 2022.
God’s hand of blessing on America certainly appears to be slipping away. Will it ever return? Is there a way back to what we once were? Where is the solution?
Joining Jim to explore this issue was Sam Rohrer. Sam is president of the American Pastors Network. Sam is a former member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives where he was Chair of the House Finance Committee. He is the speaker on Stand in the Gap Radio and Stand in the Gap Television.
Sam noted that God raises up nations and he takes them down. So as God worked with Israel, that’s the pattern for nations around the world.
He indicated that America got off course when we began to experience what Israel did as God communicates in Deuteronomy 28. God told Israel that he brought them out of bondage to a new land and if they’d fear him and keep his commandments, then he’d pour out so many blessings, Israel would not be able to handle it. Then after listing those blessings, God told Israel that if they turn their back on him and think that those blessings came from their own hands, he’d turn those blessings into judgment.
So once we believe that what we have came from our own strength, prowess and intellect, we’ve then taken God off the throne and have replaced him with man. When such idolatry becomes the religion of a nation, God’s judgment steps in.
Don’t miss your opportunity to review this special National Day of Prayer broadcast that also answers the following:
- Are we just now walking into judgment or are we close to final judgment?
- Is there a path for returning to God? Can there be national renewal/revival?
- What are the 10 principles that describe democracies and their history as they move from bondage to freedom and back to bondage? What step does Sam believe the U.S. is at?
