( ROMANS 1:16-17 ) FOR I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST: FOR IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION TO EVERY ONE THAT BELIEVETH, TO THE JEW FIRST, AND ALSO TO THE GREEK. ( 17 ) ( FOR THEREIN ) IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD REVEALED FROM FAITH TO FAITH: AS IT IS WRITTEN, THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.
In this article, my desire is to show, to the best of my knowledge; what has happened to the United States of America over the last few decades. Often, many people, just like me; believe we are living in the ( last days ) as we see spoken of in the Word of God. While that might be true, it doesn’t mean we have to be a part of the unrighteousnes ( of this world ) ( as a nation ) that says we are ( one nation under God ). It we can see and recognize the problem then we can go about, as a nation to repent from the wrong we see.
( I believe ) that we, as a nation was founded under the ( One True God ) of this universe. We were founded in a different constitution and set of values than any other nation in this world. The God that we established ourselve under is the Father of Jesus Christ, the man that went to the Cross of Calvary shed his blood for the sins of this world. Jesus Christ is ( God the Father ) in a body of flesh. When we say, we are ( ONE NATION UNDER GOD ) that is the God we are speaking of.
AS far as I know, every one of our leaders, when they take the oathe of office; they lay their hand on God’s word to do so. Now, if that isn’t done all the time now, that was the way this country was established. Even in a court of Law, that book is used. Do we, as a nation still expect that same standard from our leaders? If not, have we changed the God we serve as a nation?
I believe that the general population of our nation still recognizes God, the Father of Jesus Christ as the God of our nation. So, where does the problem or, does one exist? I say yes! I’ll mention two places I believe ( we the poeple ) need to step up to the plate and, demand that the God we truly serve be recognized. If we have a true desire to save this nation as we know it, we must demand that the pastors of our Churches speak and preach the word of God. We must allow ourselve to be changed by the power of that word, even if it hurts or, cost us the things we value in this world. A price must be paid.
Second, we as a nation send representatives from our local areas to Washington to represent us. Those people are the closest to us in Washington. ( We the people ) seeing the we see and worship the God and Father of Jesus Christ must demand that our representative also let it be known as our spokesman in Washington. The vast majority of those people come from the rural areas of our country and from cities that still exalt Jesus Christ as our only Savior. These people must begin to let that be known and set that standard as they represent us, starting by having prayer to the God that this nation exalts from the chambers they work in daily.
Consider, Let’s just say that there is a person from the Muslim Religion in the chamber. If that person wants to take his or her turn we prayer, we can and will respecrt their right to do so, however ( we the people ) still serve and worship the God and Father of Jesus Christ. That must be the voice that is heard and seen in our nation. We cannot expect less from our leaders and remain where we are as a nation.
As a man from North Carolina, I believe my representative should be willing to stand up at his seat and proclaim Jesus Christ as the God that his district serves and, also give testimony to where he stands. We, as members of this district should expect no less. If every district that sees Jesus Christ as the ( God of this Nation ) will demand that of their representatives then we can begin to rebuild what we have lost in our God fearing nation.
One of my favorite verses of scripture is ( 2 Timothy 1:7 ) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
For far too long we have hid behind, often even the laws of this land. It’s time to change our fear into the power of the God, into the love of him first and then our nation. Also, if a person doesn’t have a sound mind; I might add, since we are speaking of ( ONE NATION UNDER GOD ); i’d add ( a strong spiritually sound mind ). We should not except less.
If the average district in our great nation are seen as God fearing people then we need to let that be known through our representatives in Washington, proving we are ( ONE NATION UNDER THE GOD THAT LIVED WITHIN JESUS CHRIST )
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
