Let the trumpet sound for the coming King.
The almighty approaches!
Let the whole world see.
Wake up!
This is really happening--the locusts devouring everything.
The great and dreadful day of the
Lord has fallen on the land.
May you bear the mark of righteousness.
We will not be forsaken.
May your conviction stand to profess: we will not be forgotten.

America, you will be judged,
but His people will be restored.
Fall to your knees
for there is life at the throne of God
You will be judged.
Seek your mercy now, while it may still be found.
Arise,
take up your sword and choose your side.
Tonight, prepare for battle.
For the dream of God will come
from the lips of children,
and His Spirit will pour out
onto all flesh.
You will see the sun black out,
and the moon turned to blood.
Then you will know there is one God
and the LORD is His name.

You will be judged,
but His people will be restored.
Fall to your knees,
for there is life
at the throne of God.

    General CommentI'm sure it says

    "Then you will know there is one God,
    and Eloi is His name"

    I love this message.

    At first it sounds rather comdemning, "AMERICA, YOU WILL BE JUDGED" kind of gives off that Christians are better than everyone, but the truth is that America will be judged and when they get to the end of their rope they'll wish that mercy could still be found. Those that refuse to give God a chance will be wishing that they had, they will know that there is one God, and Eloi is his name.

    My hope is that they see Eloi before that time comes.

    God bless!
