American Pastors Network, President Sam Rohrer hopes America, the church, pastors and believers are listening to the message God is sending in the wake of many natural disasters and unrest. He said, “periods like these were common in the Bible, where God gave his people warnings and implored them to repent.”
“So we must ask, ‘What should be happening in our country?'” Rohrer continued. “‘How should the American people be responding?’ We can tie these important questions to everything we see happening in our world—from hurricanes to earthquakes. God is indeed trying to get our attention. And everything fits within the context of taking heed of this warning, repenting and getting right with God. The American Pastors Network’s urgent message is: ‘Wake up, church!’ Do we understand? Are we hearing and is it leading to repentance?”
Rohrer added that pastors especially should be encouraging their people to listen to God’s message, ask “What are you saying, God?” and get on their knees to repent.
“The verse 2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV ‘If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land’ was used widely during the presidential election of 2016,” Rohrer said. “But now, many have forgotten. The post-election message was that our nation had a short period of time—a small window of opportunity—to steer the ship right. What will the church do in that window? Go back to sleep or further engage? These past few weeks have been a very tangible wake-up call. We must look up and understand, and know that what happens in this country hinges on the people of God. Are they hearing, are they watching and are they responding?”
Rohrer and his fellow hosts of APN’s radio ministry, “Stand in the Gap Today,” which airs on 425 stations nationwide, have been addressing these timely headlines and their tie to biblical times.
In Isaiah Chapter 5, the prophet Isaiah proclaimed judgement on the Jerusalem of his day,” Rohrer said on a recent “Stand in the Gap” program. Could his words be the final words of judgement on America of our day? His message was one of final judgement. No more warnings. No more time. God said, I’ll destroy your nation because you’ve rejected my commands and despised My holy name. Therefore, My fearsome anger will come against you and no nation will stand against Me. In that day, Israel deserved God’s judgement. We in America should look in the mirror and consider our sins in light of Israel then: materialism; apathy; ignorance; moral relativism; addictions of all types; bribery and corruption; rampant dishonesty.
“Is not God clearly warning our nation?” says, Rohrer
