What is this that the rulers of our land can now make the decision on who is to live and who is to die.  Look at the story of Terri Schiavo.   How the courts made a decision on whether she should live or die and even down to how to do it.  They decided to starve her to death.  Dr. Jack Kevorkian the doctor of death who decided he would legally kill people that thought it was their time to go.  Religious leaders like Jim Jones,  Who decided he was god and played with people’s lives and then lead them all to take their lives.  People taking their own lives and I have thought of it a time or two.  There are Millions of babies being aborted.

Just a few days ago there was much controversy over our ex-Vice President getting a new heart.  Some said he is too old.  A headline in the Forbes Magazine said, “Cheney’s Million Dollar Heart Stirs Health Care Debate: Who Lives and who Dies?”  Then the writer writes these words:

“It’s ironic, of course, that Cheney received his new heart just as the debate about Obama care was being argued in front of the Supreme Court.”   Hmmm I don’t think this was a coincidence.  I feel God arranged that.

This in my opinion is from taking God out of our society.  Look at what was has taken place.  Again as I say time and time again, you have the freedom to choose what you believe, but in the end you WILL pay for that decision one way or the other.  Revelation 20:8 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them.  And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.  And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds.  Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.  And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. (NAS)

Romans 14: 8 for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord; therefore whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.  For to this end Christ died and lived again, that He might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.  (NAS)

I Thessalonians:9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,  who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him.  Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.  (NAS)

Psalm 139:7-8 where can I go from Your Spirit?  Or where can I flee from Your presence?  If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. (NAS)

We need to change our ways in this country.  Take back what God wants so that we can begin anew.   I leave you with one last scripture and in this scripture we have a hope of change.

II Chronicles 7: 14 Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.  My eyes will be open and my ears attentive to every prayer made in this place. (NLT)

God’s people need to change and repent.  Also the sinner needs to repent and accept Jesus as their savior.  In the end it IS God’s decision who lives and who dies.
