I'm smh this morning... with all the crime and catastrophic events that are occurring in our schools and in our world today, you'd think that people would wake up, smell the coffee, and stop fearing and bashing the Almighty but rather cling to Him. I know in Romans 1:28 it says, "And even as they refused to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up unto a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting;" ...But to SEE it actually play out just sickens and saddens me.
Despite the rising movement of popular belief that this country...the land of the free and home of the brave...America... was not founded on Christian principles, I know and will stand upon the reality that it was. Thomas Jefferson, one of our founding fathers, said this, "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever; That a revolution of the wheel of fortune, a change of situation, is among possible events; that it may become probable by Supernatural influence! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in that event."
Our freedom...freedom so many continue to fight for...is truly a gift from our God! If we continue down the path towards Godlessness...attempting to remove Him from everything that we can... we will see how quickly those freedoms we enjoy are removed. ...In fact...we can see it playing out before our very eyes even now.
Matthew 10:33 says, "Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven." It's time People of God to Wake Up...Smell the Coffee...And RISE UP. Do not be ashamed of the One who gave His life for you...proclaim Him. Proclaim what He has done in your life. Be strong in your faith...knowing this...that they hated Him first. RISE UP and declare the King of kings and Lord of lords. Do not falter in your beliefs or give in to the popularity movement. Stand strong in the Lord and the power of His might. This country will have lost all hope and all freedom if we as believers in Christ do not RISE UP! DECLARE HIM TODAY...Be SALT...Be LIGHT... Be His LOVE...and RISE UP!
