    How Can God Bless America?

    James 4:7-10

    Do the American people really want to know the conditions that precede God’s blessing?

    “Don’t tell us what to do; just bless us!”

    Ravi Zacharias

    The death of morality

    The death of truth

    The death of reason

    For God to ever Bless America,

    Americans Must Repent

    1. Get Completely Honest about Your Own Sins

    Exodus 30:18–21

    18 Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of brass, to wash withal: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein.

    19 For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat:

    20 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the LORD:

    21 So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.).

    Isaiah 59:2–3

    2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, And your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

    3 For your hands are defiled with blood, And your fingers with iniquity; Your lips have spoken lies, Your tongue hath muttered perverseness

    Isaiah 1:15–16

    15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: Yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: Your hands are full of blood.

    16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

    An Honest Evaluation of My Sins Demands Repentance

    1. Ask God to make your Truly Clean

    Ezekiel 36:25–26

    25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

    26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh

    1. Treat Sin Like a Curse

    Luke 18:13

    13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.).
