I don’t know about you, but I LOVE MY COUNTRY! Despite all of the problems we face as a nation, I am still so thankful that I was born in the land of the free and the home of the brave. I am thankful that I was born in a freedom loving nation that was established on the Word of God. I know, I know- that inconvenient truth is unpopular these days in our politically correct society, but it is true nonetheless. EVERY national monument bears record of this unalterable truth, that is, unless they are willing to take a jack hammer to them, which they may one day do.
Nevertheless, I am encouraged, as I read God’s Word and am reminded that we have not reached “the point of no return” as a nation. Read this!
Deu 4:7 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?
Deu 4:8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?
This passage reminds us that it is GOD Who made us a great nation and has blessed and preserved us a nation. It is GOD Who has exalted us and established us as a beacon of hope to the rest of the world. For centuries now, the world has looked to us as a pattern for freedom. Only willfully ignorant liberals like Justice Ruth Ginsburg would suggest otherwise, as she recently did on a visit to Tunisia. Regardless of the revisionists of our day, our founding fathers also understood this truth quite clearly. They knew that it would be impossible for our nation be rightly governed apart from God’s law.
The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God. John Adams, Second President of the United States of America
The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity. John Quincy Adams, Sixth President of the United States of America
Let us enter on this important business under the idea that we are Christians on whom the eyes of the world are now turned… [L]et us earnestly call and beseech Him, for Christ’s sake, to preside in our councils. . . . We can only depend on the all powerful influence of the Spirit of God, Whose Divine aid and assistance it becomes us as a Christian people most devoutly to implore. Therefore I move that some minister of the Gospel be requested to attend this Congress every morning . . . in order to open the meeting with prayer. Elias Boudinot, First Attorney admitted to the U.S. Supreme Court
There can be no doubt, but to the willfully ignorant, that we were and STILL ARE a Christian nation. But more powerful is the thought that a gracious and merciful God stands ready to forgive and pardon our iniquities as a nation.
Deu 4:29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
Deu 4:30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
Deu 4:31 (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.
America, it’s not too late. God in His mercy stands ready to restore us and make us the righteous nation that we once was. Christians, it begins with you! Judgement begins at the house of God and we will never be a righteous nation again until we, as God’s people, are willing to turn back to God first.
Seek Him with your whole heart today. Purpose to walk in obedience to the faith. Be a witness by pointing people to our precious Savior. That is how we will once again exalt righteousness as a nation.
