Why Did God Allow 911?

Why Did God Allow 911?  

by Martin Banner (reprinted with permission)

Note:  This is a message we sent out last year warning how God is looking for repentance.  It has been almost 9 years since the     9-11 event and although the churches were full right after 9-11, little repentance has come in America.  Please read a very important message, as God has historically sent warnings to a nation before He brings judgment.  Is judgment at the door?  Who will heed the warning to repent?  Now we have the gulf oil spill, another horrific event.  What is coming next if America fails to repent?

First, I want to condemn this horrific act of terrorism perpetrated against the American people and all acts of terrorism committed anywhere, against anyone. Acts of terror and fear, designed to manipulate people, are condemned by God and by His word.

Second, I want to pray and ask God for healing for all those who lost loved ones, family, and friends in this terrible event. Our prayers and our sympathy go out to each and every one of you and we pray for healing for your hurt and pain. The word of God says to weep with those who weep and mourn with those who mourn and I know that many of you have suffered an irreplaceable loss, due to this wicked and evil criminal act.

All Americans suffered loss on that terrible day. All Americans still feel the hurt and pain when they remember the events of that day. I remember where I was on the morning of that terrible day. I remember exactly what I was doing when I heard the horrific news. I was trying to make a phone call on two different phone lines from my home, and neither one of the phones would work. I continued to receive a fast busy signal every time I tried to call out from either phone. After trying several times on both lines, I then called an operator and told her neither phone would call out. She said to me, "Don’t you know what has happened? America has been attacked by terrorists, the Twin Towers have been hit, and the Pentagon is burning!" I replied, "No, I haven't listened to the news yet this morning" and I ran to the TV and turned it on just in time to watch the first Tower collapse. I remember the anguish I felt as tears streamed down my face. I felt a feeling in the pit of my stomach like I had never felt before. It was as if the whole world had changed. Thoughts started to race through my mind. What will happen next? All Americans remember and know exactly what I am talking about.

Why Didn’t God Intervene?

I know this is a very sensitive topic, but what I want to discuss is why did this event occur? Why would a loving God allow a nation like America to go through such pain, loss and suffering? We know that God is love, so why didn't God intervene?

Well, if you remember terrorists tried to attack the building years earlier. I do not recall what year it was, but the terrorists had tried an earlier attempt with explosives to bring the Twin Towers down and failed. During that attempted attack, God did intervene and He spared many lives and protected the nation from a great calamity. The Lord in His mercy had protected America from what would have been a very devastating attack at that time. If God protected us from the first attack against the Twin Towers, why didn't He protect us during the second attack? Where was God during this second attack and what exactly is God saying through these events to this nation?

Well, I think we have to go back to the founding of this great nation. When America was first becoming a nation, during the Revolutionary War, there was a saying that became very popular, "No king, but King Jesus!" In other words, they were saying that this new nation, the United States of America, would be ruled by God, and God alone.

We placed on our money "In God We Trust." We placed in our courts "The Ten Commandments." We placed in our schools "daily prayer to God." We placed in our Pledge of Allegiance "One Nation under God." We were a nation that honored God and feared Him, and kept His commandments, and God prospered us greatly. For over 200 years God placed His hand of protection over our great nation. We were a blessed nation, that God prospered and protected. We were a mighty nation and we were feared throughout the world. We became the strongest military power on the earth. We were also the greatest financial power on earth. We were a moral people who put God first, family second and nation third. We were proud to be Americans. We had something that all the other nations of the earth wanted and coveted after. We had the blessing of our God.

What Happened to the Blessing?

Could it be that God allowed 911 to happen because we as a nation are no longer honoring God? Could it be that by removing God from our schools, by removing the Ten Commandments from our courts and by attempting to remove "One Nation under God" from our Pledge of Allegiance, that we have offended and caused great pain to a holy and just God, who had blessed us more than any nation in the history of this earth? Could it be by allowing easy access to porn all over the internet and by promoting sexual perversion, and by having such a high divorce rate and so much adultery, that we have angered the God who loves us so much, that He decided to remove His hand of protection and blessing from our once great nation?

Could it be that God is dealing with America's sin by removing His hand of protection and blessing from the nation? Could it be that the reason why 911, Katrina, the collapse of Wall Street and our economy, all the storms, tornados and hurricanes are ravaging our nation, and now sicknesses and new diseases are rapidly spreading, is because God has removed His hand of protection? Just consider for a moment what America was like in the 1950's, and then look at America today. It was an America that once honored God, honored family, honored moral values, and honored righteous moral living. An America that once had God's blessings, prosperity, and God's protection. Now look at that same America today. Could it be that we have sinned away the blessings of God?

Instead of promoting morality, we have promoted perversion. Instead of promoting prayer in our schools, we promote secular humanism. Instead of honoring the Lord Jesus Christ, we have honored sin.

What have we done with all the blessing and freedom and liberty we were given from God? We took our freedom and our liberty and used it as freedom of choice, freedom to sin, freedom to choose death and abortion rather than to choose life. We used freedom to say no to God and His word, and to say yes to sin and immorality.

Is it any wonder we now see our freedoms and our liberty quickly slipping away when you look at what we have done with freedom and liberty?

Why Did God Allow it to Happen?

Why did God allow 911 to occur? I believe God allowed these events and the events of Katrina and other hurricanes and tornados to get our attention because He loves us! He loves us so much, that He has removed His protection from our nation! Why? Because God wants America to repent of their sins, and to turn back to Him, and to live a righteous and moral life, to do what is right and good and just before His eyes again.

God has removed His hand of protection as a last measure to try to get this nation to repent and turn back to Him. If we do not repent, I fear that the storms will intensify and things will get much worse with both the weather and our economy. If America still refuses to repent, I believe then God will bring Judgment and I believe we could end up in a world war without God’s protection!

Protection Comes From God!

America, your only protection is from God who formed you. Your only protection against your enemies comes from the Lord God Almighty. America, your only protection against terrorism, natural disasters, storms, diseases, crop failures, food shortages, economic collapse and civil unrest is in returning to the Lord your God, and living according to His Word. God is your only protection! Return to God and serve Him and God will place His protection and blessing on your land again. If you continue to turn away from God, I fear that God will remove His hand of protection completely.

America Needs a Healing!

America needs a healing. America needs healing from 911, healing from Katrina, healing from a sick economy, and healing from sin. There is only one way for you to be healed America, return to the fountain of your blessing, the Lord your God. Repent of your sins which are many, and return to God, and He has promised to heal your land.

2 Chronicles 7:14

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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

America needs to get back under the protection of God. God can protect us from every enemy, from every storm, from every natural disaster, and from every plague, if we will just repent and turn back to God. He will abundantly pardon our sins of abortion, perversion, adultery, pornography, and idolatry. The choice is yours America! You can choose God's blessing if you obey, or His curse if you disobey.

Deuteronomy 30:19

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

God is very clear in His word that if we obey Him, we choose life and blessing!

Choose you this day whom you will serve America. If God be God serve Him.

Joshuah 24: 15, 20

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good.

God is in control of everything, the weather, the storms, the crops, and the rain. He is in control of the elements and He can bless a nation or curse a nation with these elements.

The America We All Love!

I want the America we all love back again! I want prayer back in our schools, God’s presence back in our churches, and Godly marriages that last. I want morality back again; I want righteousness in our land. Give me back the America we once new, the America we all love and were proud of. Who will stand with me and say "I want God back in America?" I want His blessing back. I want His protection back. I want His prosperity back and I want His hand of guidance and protection over my nation again.

I call all Americans everywhere to humble themselves, to repent of their sins, and to seek God and to cry out for their nation, that God may return His blessing to this once great land. I call out to all Americans to love their God, their family and their nation again. For them to do that which is right in God's eyes again. To humble themselves, to live morally and righteously again, and to be a righteous people who walk in the fear of God.

I fear, if we do not do this soon, what will become of us? What will become of our once great nation? What will happen if God removes His protection completely? Let's not let that happen. Let's humble ourselves now and return to the Lord our God and always do what is right in His eyes, that which pleases Him.

We like to say "God Bless America", but the truth is, God can not bless America, until America repents and turns back to God. It can start with you and with me and with our families. We can be the ones who humble ourselves and turn from our sins and bring healing to our land. Let it begin with me and with you.

Amen and Amen.
