Be of good cheer, America, the Lord is near.
Right now, perhaps, you are wondering about what is going to happen to our country. With the political events in Washington DC a daily circus it is obvious that we are a nation divided without a vision for the future and elected leadership that achieved office via political subterfuge. With over $1,000,000,000.00 wasted on useless advertisements during the last Presidential election we have an internal struggle for power which has brought us to our knees as a nation. We are weaker as a nation than at any time since the civil war.
No one is more capable of hurting you than a close family member. They know your every weakness and they bear a grudge. There is nothing more dangerous than a family feud. When family members turn on each other it becomes deadly. So deadly in fact that it ranks number one as the cause of violent death in the USA and to this day the War Between the States is the most deadly we have ever fought. The most violent and deadly wars are internal.
What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among us? Is not the source, the pleasures that wage war among us? We lust and do not have; so we become thief’s and even commit murder. We are envious and cannot obtain; so we fight and quarrel.
We do not have because we have wrong motives; when we receive something we spend it on our pleasures.
We could be called adulteresses; our relationship with the world is hostile toward God. We cannot live a worldly lifestyle where anything goes and not be an enemy of God.
The United States of America is one nation under God indivisible with Liberty and Justice for all. We are one people united by the constitutional principles that set us free. Therefore those of us who are constitutional bound ----we cannot seek divorce.
God jealously desires and guards the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us as Christians and in America. In fact we were once known as a Christian nation. God despises those that show Him contempt and is opposed to the proud but gives grace to the humble. The United States of America is like our body, a temple of the Holy Spirit; it is a gift from God build for His good pleasure. He set it aside and formed the borders of the United States of America for a purpose. The founders built it by faith on a firm foundation of Godly principles and the people of the United States of America have fought to secure the nation’s future through many times of turmoil and tribulation. Think of all the lives given for its establishment and those whom defended the principles’ upon which it was founded. We owe a special thank you to our Veterans!
As individuals or as a nation whether we live or die the decision is the Lord’s. He uses trials and tribulations to mold us into what He wants us to be.
Even as divided as we are today the people of America are not opponents in a war with each other. Even though we look like people going through a divorce we cannot concede defeat. We must come together without hypocrisy, abhor what is evil and cling to what is good in the society around us. We are to embrace the attributes of Jesus Christ in our relationship to our fellow citizens.
We are to reach out in love to every part of our society and never payback evil for evil to anyone.
We are to overcome evil with good. That is how we move forward. We respect the government we have and work within it where ever possible for good. We must be fervent in our diligence and our zeal to restore love for one another and to the people around us.
God will take care of the rest. May His will be done. I pray that He finds enough people of like mind that He will spare His vengeance on America.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit!
Know that it is better to give than receive!
