The Church And America

Q. Do you think the Church will be here if America does not repent of her sins, or will be taken out of the way. There are many of us who pray our leaders will repent of the lawlessness they are forcing on the people. But it seems to be getting worse. I would appreciate your thoughts on this subject.

A. Whether America experiences a national repentance or not is irrelevant, because God never promised to save America. He only promised to save the Church.

If a great revival should come to America before the rapture, even if the course of the nation is temporarily changed by it, it would simply mean that a larger number from America will be taken in the rapture. Afterward, the portion of America that remains behind will line up behind the anti-Christ just like the rest of the post-Church world. Rev. 13:7 says the anti-Christ will be given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.

Either way, the Church will be taken off the Earth before the end times judgments begin (Romans 5:9, 1 Thes. 1:10, Rev. 3:10). Since there’s nothing in the Bible about America, either for good or bad, I think it’s safe to say America will be destroyed during the Great Tribulation like the rest of the nations among which the Jewish people have been scattered (Jeremiah 30:11).
