Have you kept up with the news? Concerning America the beautiful, the land we love. What will North Korea do today? What will our President do? An Army lieutenant colonel made news with what is suppose to be a 14 page document attacking the religious right in America. He identified groups like the Family Research Council and the American Family Association as domestic hate groups. Should we be concerned? Most definitely, our concern needs focused on what is coming from our government.
America, what is happening?
This term religious right is a bit of an oxymoron. We may have extremes in Christian and liberal. However, here is where I clutch, shouldn’t all people who consider themselves a Christian believe the Bible? I realize should and could are not absolutes. How much worse can America become? Consider Venezuela under the leadership of Hugo Chavez. President Chavez left his country with out-of-control crime, high inflation, and production problems in their oil industry. He instituted early on sweeping reforms that divided this country. His critics called him anti-business and neo-fascist. This is too similar to what is happening in America. Many in America want to call truth as hate.
What are we to do?
What are we to do? We start with ourself. We turn to God and repent. Let’s pray as we search our hearts, minds, and souls. We need to ask ourselves if there is anything we need to repent from. Have we been wrapped snug in any sin? What is sin? The Bible is clear. Google what is sin in the Bible. This will take you to entries for you to click on for scripture. I feel certain if you ask God, the Holy Spirit will give a nudge and thoughts will flood your mind. We must repent. This means our sins will be wiped out. Remember, Jesus died on the cross as the sacrificial offering for our sin. Does this make it right to stay in sin? No, once we repent we will receive a time of refreshing.
America needs our help
America needs our help. We start with one, grow to many. If we all embrace this thought, we will begin to see multiplication. Can we change the world? With God …All things are possible. Do you feel God’s presence like a cool flow permeating through you? God truly wants us refreshed. Be strong in the Lord, grow in Biblical knowledge. This will prove to be worthy in days ahead. I believe what is most sad, I know the blessings God is capable of pouring out, yet we have to walk in obedience to God’s Word. Are you ready for this challenge today? Other countries need this same spark to flame into a full fledge revival. We can be a spark in every territory in this world. Let’s start right where we are.
