This message is for The United States of America as a whole and should be applied in the wisdom of God to every home in order to maintain what we have been given. There is a historical cycle in life that proves this message without any room for debate in what takes place when we drift away from the obedience of God and begin to live with our own selfish ambitions.
Due to the drift away from the wisdom of God in the Holy Bible and the instruction that the Lord gives each one of us to maintain our homes this has opened the door for the spiritual enemy to slowly weaken the foundation that is to be maintained by His people. The spiritual enemy works in many different ways to distract the people in the temptations of foods, material gains, lust of the flesh, positions of power and many other ways of distraction simply to cause a division. With divisions within the body of our core beliefs this only makes us vulnerable for the attack of our enemies in order to learn another lesson in how we can fall. Many people fail to see how the Lord allows oppression to fall upon His people in order to discipline us for our lack of obedience and to realign our focus from the world back to our Creator in Heaven above.
America is at historical point of either a revival that is going raise up men and women of God that are willing stand for what is right in our homes and in our nation or at a point of further division that is going to eventually lead to the destruction of our country. Without men and women working together with the integrity of Christian values to address the over sized government, reckless spending, corporate greed, legalized murder through abortions, immigration and the addicted nation that we are in then we better prepare for what is sure to come. Based upon the will of God and the national stand of the people in how we open up our eyes to the Truth in the Word of God will determine the strength in our foundation from which we stand in the love of Jesus Christ that holds us all together. Many homes and historical empires lost sight of this principle that eventually led to their collapse.
Like in the fall of the Roman Empire you will find that their quest for power led them into a socialist culture in trying to simply appease the people by being naive to the importance of a core religion which eventually led to their fall. Why did the Roman government make this decision in appeasing the people with their beliefs? Simply due to their desire of power, greed and then due their state of survival. The leadership in Rome during their deterioration never grasped the principle of how to maintain the integrity within their foundation in having core beliefs to maintain the order. The Romans thought they could hold things together through a larger government that eventually absorbed all the nutrients within their empire which led to their collapse.
If you were to look at the direction of America today you would honestly find the same misdirected leadership in our country that is trying to appease the people to maintain their political positions and their false thinking that money is the answer to our internal problems. America like Rome and every other nation that tries to impose their way of life on others only opens the doors for spiritual friction that will eventually lead to war. As God teaches us in His wisdom we are to maintain our homes by learning to stand on the principles of God without becoming complacent in His Word. Our founding fathers of The United States of America knew this importance and they recognized the dangers of a nation that drifts away from their Christian faith.
President Thomas Jefferson: “God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?”
President Andrew Jackson called the Bible; “The Rock upon which our republic rests.”
President John Adams said; “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.”
Patrick Henry said, “It is when a people forget God, that tyrants forge their chains.”
George Washington said; “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.”
President Ronald Reagan once said,”If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
Now, here is the part of this message that I pray that America hears in order to maintain the foundation for our children’s future and for preparation of what is sure to come if we continue the national drift away from our Christian foundation. The United States of America as a whole is a home that is no different than my own on an individual level. Through my fore fathers it has been been built on specific principles that parallel Joshua 24:15 to maintain the strength within its’ foundation. I like the leaders in the Roman Empire and like many of our American leaders today once fell into the wrong thinking that I could fix my problems with money without truly addressing the roots of the issue at hand. My own ignorance to the Word of God and rebellion led me into a state of survival that eventually had to fall in order to stand again.
This is where I praise God for giving me the chance to live again in His mercy and grace! I pray that every father and leader within this nation will begin to address the issues that they are trying to avoid to eliminate the depth of the fall. Too many times we think we can fix something when we are not the ones who can fix anything!
Regarding leadership in America I pray that God will raise up leaders that will stand in faith in serving Him instead of trying to appease the people. It is not our place as a true Christian to force our beliefs on another nation nor is right for anyone else to enter into our house of America and try to change our ways in return. The rise and fall of homes and nations is all determined on who we serve and how obedient we are to God’s Word. Have we gone too far? Is it too late for the point of return? Only God knows the answers to these two questions but according to His Word in which still stands today we are told in 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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.
As long as we have breath then there is hope and the outcome is determined by the hand of God in the decisions that we make! Are you willing to make a positive difference and learn to stand on the principles of God for our children’s future? Don’t ever be misled and think that we are not accountable for our actions! For God is real and in full control of everything from Heaven to Earth. We are here to serve Him and not ourselves! So, please recognize the positive difference that you can make at your own dinner table by learning to trust in God instead of relying upon our government or on another man…Amen
