Today in America we are on the brink of a historic election where our very freedoms are at stake. This nation was in fact founded on the Bible and Christian principles no matter how hard educators and others try to brainwash us otherwise. The US is unique. We have been blessed all these years in our young nation because we have acknowledged God and followed him but now little by little we have taken our eyes off him, taken things for granted and in many cases pastors in the pulpit forget to pray for the nation. We coast along like everything is hunky dory and do not seem to see the threats of decay and collapse all around us. It is time to awaken from the slumber. We are like the proverbial frog in pot of water on the stove where the heat is slowly turned up and we do not realize we are being cooked alive.
"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance. "(Psalm 33:12)" Yes, joyful are those who live like this! Joyful indeed are those whose God is the LORD. (Psalm 144:15).Our national monuments in Washington have engraved in granite "In God We Trust" in one form or fashion all over them. Our money still thankfully says " In God we Trust."
When a person is silent and does not speak up for evil and tyranny he is either blinded or more or less saying by his silence that he must in fact agree with it. Men and women for years have given their lives for the defense of these precious freedoms which are God given. Joyce Meyer said today on her show Enjoying Everyday Life, "Wouldn''t it be great if just one of our godly leaders in DC would speak up and say I think we should pray for 3 days." Wow that would be something else. Or wouldn't it be great to have a president that would say "Jesus is Lord'! Another big wow! But we sadly do not have the kind of leader right now that acknowledges the sovreignty of God. When a nation forgets God look out. (Read Deuteronomy Chapter 28 when you have about 5 minutes today. )
We are either for God or against him. No in between. In Revelation 3:16 it says "because you are lukewarm I will spit you out of my mouth. " That is pretty graphic and to the point. But we are not to despair. In the last election it depicted a candidate for president with the words 'hope' under his picture. Well we are to not place hope in any human man or exalt them to the level of saviour of the world. Only God is our hope and only he can save us. Acts 4:12 says "There is no other name in heaven by which men can be saved. "
Psalm 46:1 says "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."
We need revival in this land. We are on the brink of losing our God given freedoms because we have let leaders who seemingly do not follow God to bully us and lord over us. There is either the power of God or the power of Satan. We are not to be angry at men but to be angry at the devil. This is a spiritual battle we are fighting. We all need to be armed and ready for battle.
Ephesians 6:10-18 "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints."
Nov 1st and Nov 2nd are being called days of fasting and prayer for the nation. Check the website http://www.praythevote.com/ for helps. And remember what it says in 2 Chronicles 7:14,"if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
This is not about Democrat or Republican. This is about freedom and liberty and letting Jesus be Lord of this land again.
PRAYER: Dear Lord open our eyes to see the dangers lurking around us. Turn our hearts back to you 100%. Forgive us for not praying for this country and thanking you daily for the freedoms we enjoy. Help us Lord to put our trust in you and not man. In Jesus Name. Amen.
