This nation has seen a lot these last few years. In the last four years, there has been demonstration made very clear to all of the differences between good and evil. I believe God is allowing some things to happen on purpose, to help people recognize the difference between good and evil.
It really has nothing to do with people, but the war between principalities and powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness of this world. Yes, they use people to move through, but our fight is not against Flesh and Blood. The war is between God and Satan. The followers of God and the followers of Satan. God has a Kingdom and Satan has a Kingdom. The Kingdom of God has a book of instructions that gives the followers of God the plan for victory, because He loves them. Satan has a device called influence, to lead his followers down the path of destruction. All mankind was created in the image of God even though, not all are following the plan of God. So Satan hates all mankind because he hates God so much. He uses man for his own selfish purpose with influencing them to do His bidding.
The early Christian Church was started by 12 dedicated, committed men. They were convicted followers of Jesus Christ, and how their conviction had an influence, in a period of time on the whole world. We see the United States is one of the greatest nations, because it was founded on Christian values. It became the nation that helped all other nation in some form. The heart of this nation has always stood with Israel, causing us to have the blessings of God. Freedom for all mankind was our main purpose. United we stand. We are the most blessed and one of the richest nations in the world “laboring together.”
“Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for His own inheritance”[ps.33:12]. This Nation has been blessed over 200 years. We see an all out effort to remove Jesus and the name of God from everything in this nation. Now we see we are not so blessed anymore. This is not a political statement. It is a spiritual statement. God said I am the Lord Thy God and I change not. “Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people”[Prov.14:34]. The word of God, the creator of the universe is, so simple and easy to understand. He does not make it hard for us to comprehend.
God has a plan for this nation and it is good. He said, “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 will forgive their sin, and heal their land” [2 Chr.7:14]. [notice MY people] this is not even talking about all those people out there we are grumbling about. He has given us a way to get this nation healed. His People, who are called Christians, to humble ourselves, pray, seek His face, turn from sin. We don’t need a Theologian to interpret this scripture for us. It does not take a rocket scientist to understand what it says. It will take a few good men and women to do what it says and influence others.
It does not matter what the name over the church door reads. God says all who are born again are one body. He says we are to love one another. Not just those who we like. If we care about our nation and have a desire for God to heal our land, then we will work together “Till we all come into the unity of the faith, and the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: “[Eph. 4:13]. God is waiting for a group of people He can show Himself Mighty through to this wicked world. “UNITED WE STAND”
