NUGGETS: America “A Sleeping Giant”

By Jannie Linney

America is the greatest place in the world to live. We are a Christian Nation. There is a Church on about every corner of our towns and cities. We are the Nation that sends missionaries out to the entire world. We stand with Israel and The Bible says if we bless Israel we will be blessed, if we curse Israel we will be cursed. [Gen. 12:3]. That is a law. It works like electricity. Electricity will bless us in many ways, but if we use it wrong it will kill us. We are also the peace makers. We fight for our freedom and the freedom of others. What a great nation. We are so blessed to live here. If everyone in this nation was just like you — would it be a better place to live or not. What example do we set for others?

We have people here from every nation, that’s what makes up America. We have welcomed all who wanted to come and have a better life, those who come in legally. Now we pray they will not try to make this nation like the one they ran from and come in the right way! Our constitution is proven to be good, it works, why change it?

This is truly a wake-up call for the body of Christ to pray, we have been like a sleeping giant. Our Nation is strong and has been the leader of the world, by example. Christians have the truth and the answer to the world problems. For years we have quoted 2 Chronicles. 7:14. It says, “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 I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sins and will heal their land.” He is talking only to the Christians. He said “My People!”

The churches were being filled after 9-11.with people we thought were ready for a change in each individual life. Now we see the nation had only become more patriotic rather than having a close relationship with Christ. We didn’t fool God. Therefore other things have happened to get our attention. I pray we will look up now, before He has to show us more.

The Bible says “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is: [Heb. 10:25] God wants us in Christian fellowship, He knows we need each other. There is no second chance after death “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” [Heb.9:27]. I think it would be the same after the death of a nation. This nation is now on Life Support. Let’s agree to speak Life back into this Nation! A bar-be-que pit full of hot coals will stay hot all night. However, if you take one coal out and lay it to the side, it will cool off real quick. That is the same with a Christian that separates themselves from the group. Being in a right relationship with our Savior causes us to be better people, better members of the church, better members of the community and the nation — and better Family Members!!!

Who we serve here on earth is who we will serve for all eternity. The robe we weave here on Earth, is the robe we will wear for all eternity. The choice is ours! Remember we are “America the Great”, because of our Great God! Let us be a part of the sleeping giant that is being aroused. “Awake to righteousness and sin not, for some have not the knowledge of God, I speak this to your shame” [1Cor.15:34]. America is still the greatest place in the world to live! “The Giant Is being awakened!!!
