Turn please to Psalm 85, if you would. In just a moment we're going to look at verses four through six. I preached to you in the last message when we were together about the critical situation in our land today. We may be on the brink of a world holocaust. Many of us feel that we are very close to the Rapture of the church and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The heartthrob of my heart tonight and my passion as your pastor and as your preacher tonight is that there will be in America a God blessed, heaven sent, Christ exalting, devil defying, sin killing, soul saving, old fashioned revival. I believe with all of my heart that revival is possible. I am not a pessimist. I am not an optimist. I am a biblical realist. And I believe dear friend, that we need to face the facts as they are. Listen to God's Word. Psalm eighty-five and verse four, "Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease. Wilt thou be angry with us forever? Wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations? Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?"
I want to talk to you tonight, in light of the crisis that we're in, on this subject, A Miracle for America, a miracle for America. And may I say on the outset of this message, that I believe with all of my heart. I say without stutter or stammer or apology that America is still the greatest nation on the face of this globe. I believe that. I make no apology whatever for being a patriarch and for being a loyal flag waving American. And I'm not ashamed to stand at attention when ole Glory passes by.

America is a great nation, but she is not great because of her natural resources. We do have natural resources from sea to shining sea, but we're not the only nation that has great natural resources. Recently we visited South America. What a great land that is, how abundant in natural resources. We are not a great nation because of our native sons. Americans are no stronger, no wiser, no other than other people. Why is America a great nation? Plainly simply put, it is this. America is a great nation because she has been blessed of God. The Bible says, blessed is that nation whose God is the Lord.
May I tell you again, without stutter, stammer or equivocation, that no nation in the history of the world ever had such a Christian beginning as our God-blessed America. The American dream was placed in the bosom of our founding fathers by the Almighty Himself. And the original colonies were founded, and I can show you beyond contradiction, the original colonies were founded because of the Christian faith.
