Is the USA headed for the Grave?

There is much being revealed as the campaign heats up. Some of it is going to be profoundly disturbing. I heard such today. I won't repeat it. I'll let others. I am coming to the conclusion that if we don't stop the headlong plunge we are on right now as a nation, no matter how weak the alternative, how flawed, how imperfect he is, the country you grew up in will cease to exist. It will die. Is that worth inquiring about or will we all just whistle as we head for the graveyard of history. Not passing by.

A question was asked by someone else:
Is it possible that we are fighting the inevitable? Is it possible this is what 'musts be' according to apocalyptic scripture? Is the demise of the US as a world power part of the Lord's plan for Israel to become totally dependent on Him and turn to Him, in lieu of her allies? As prophets, ought we not be seeking the Lord about 'what meaneth this?' Seriously and honestly, I am praying into this. Not as a throwing in the towel deed, but as a recognition that greater purposes are at work that I have no power to change. Is it time to sound THAT shofar and rejoice? I am in and of the Kingdom. I am the Lord's. I and mine will be cared for. This I know but as the Lord speaks, we must prepare His people.

A comment from a friend:
When Moses came down from the Mount after meeting face to face with God, he stood between an angry God and an unrepentant people, not willing to give up on them. His appeal to God came even tho God promised to raise up a great nation from HIS line (Levite) ... all Moses had to do was get out of the way and watch. After all, HE was secure in HIS relationship... maybe that was what God was interested in after all... but Moses had the intestinal fortitude (guts) to stand between God and the total destruction of Israel, reminding God of His promises. We today have an obligation to others to "stand in the gap" for our country. God is not willing that ANY should perish. Have we come so far from valuing life that we say, "good riddance - kill 'em all and let God sort it out?" It has become so easy to rationalize away an out and out rejection of God in the workplace, in "polite" society and even in the church that we do listen to God's voice predicting impending judgment and instead go directly against Him. (Jer. 6:16) May God have mercy on US.
