There was an idea that became America. The idea was to create a new land, a nation that would be free from tyranny, ruled by the common law’s men came to believe in, rooted in the Holy Bible known of as the Word of God, wherein every man would have the right to self-governance and prosperity, to enjoy the fruits of his labor and to raise his family in a nation ruled by laws of justice and truth, seeking after peace both at home and abroad. And this sacred belief-system that was given to us as a nation from our Heavenly Father, these foundations that built our nation have been under assault in this past generation like never before since our nation’s conception.
It would seem rightly at first to take our grievances to the Highest Authorities of the land, with desperation and impassioned plea striving to convince these who governor the masses of the cause that is our precious and set-apart land. If we could only prick their hearts and provoke them once again to live by the convictions of their conscience and what even a child knows to be truth, we might win our land for another generation; but the thousands, tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands have peacefully assembled over the past several years unable to penetrate the flint-stone that has become the hearts of this ruling class in our state and federal governments. But a new generation is rising up.
Perhaps it is the romantic in me that clings to the naïve hope that there was a time in America wherein justice ruled Washington DC, when the truth was our standard for law and governance and a brotherly-love inspired the best among us to run for the high calling of Congress, the Supreme Court and the White House. I fear its far too easy to romanticize the Civil War era or the wars that birthed our nation, to look back with nostalgia and blindly omit the brutality and corruption found in our nation from its inception. Perhaps we have been wrong about this, perhaps this is the very best it has ever been in our nation? But the intensity of the domestic political battle waging within our borders has complexities that far supersede our own progress or righteousness.
The battle for the heart and soul of America could be better understood as the battle for the heart and soul of the world as we know it. Our world has become unbearably small once again. The last time history recorded a world that was this small and interconnected was at the Biblical Babel – and God had to confuse their language and scattered them across the face of the earth not to destroy that generation but so that creation would multiply and thrive, so that nations would be born and so the families of the earth would have a future. I fear we have found ourselves back at Babel insomuch that we can travel at will to compass the earth, we have technology to communicate instantly, at the push of a button and the language barriers are all but gone, etc. The last time mankind came together in such a way they warred against heaven without conscience and without God’s intervention they would have destroyed themselves all-together.
The troubles we have created in pursuing riches, terrestrial-power and technology above and beyond all life and blessing have brought complexities, disagreements and strife that are beyond our own ability to resolve. Nation will continue to rise against nation and there will be distress throughout the world because we have unwittingly opened Pandora’s box are simply powerless to put the devastation back inside and close it up again. We are simply in uncharted waters and men continue to deny the only Navigator with the wisdom and understanding to lead us safely away from the abyss. Our world leaders have long forsaken their own generations, so why would we ever expect them to be concerned for the families of our nation? I would say all hope is lost except I have read the whole of scripture and understand it’s triumphant ending.
I cannot say in detail what are God’s plans for our nation as it pertains to its salvation in these last days. But I can say without a doubt that there will be no hope of saving America unless the good men of America chose to take up their God-give authority and lead their homes, neighborhoods and townhalls back to reason and the fundamentals of the truth. We will have to trust Washington DC in God’s capable hands to judge as He has predetermined. A very few will be delivered to fight that battle (a battle that will only be won spiritually and with the miracle working power of God), the majority of us will have to be content as mostly unsung heroes – fighting the day to day battle for our families, our neighbors, neighborhoods and townhalls.
The beast, this dragon, tormenting our world is simply too powerful for us to subdue. And we were never intended to defeat him. It has always been God’s plan to allow our enemy to continue for a season but then to bring swift judgement, come his day. It’s a great temptation to look at the powers of the earth being shaken, to take our eyes off of our God and His victory and concern ourselves for the affairs of this broken world. We were always put here to shine. But we are shining His light, as He is the Light but we, as precious stones, reflect Him as we allow His light to shine penetrate our souls. But if the Light should become darkness, how dark will the darkness be. He has scattered us to shine, to hold the darkness at bay. We must neither lose our focus nor grow weary in well-doing. Our Father and His Christ will bring us to the victory and “in our patience we will possess our souls”.
Remember He told us, “Not a hair on your head shall perish” (Luke 21). We have listened long enough to the bad news and the fear, it’s time to listen to the voice of our Father. He is beckoning us to His table, saying, “Come and sit with me, eat of my abundance, listen to my word and learn of my ways”. The fear draws us from His presence and away from faith. It’s time to shake off the difficult years and return to His love. It’s time to finally and forever let go of our fears and those sins that so easily entrap us and enter into His fullness. If there is a path for the salvation of America this is how it begins: thousands of us choose faith, hope and love even when the masses war against heaven. A little light shined in the darkness high atop a hill can be seen from distances hard to comprehend! And many will find their way back home.
Obey God. Listen for His voice and obey. He is love. God loves our nation. He hears our prayers and wants to save us. Trust in Him even when it’s hard to see what He is doing. Trust in Him even when it simply makes no sense at all. “Trust in the Lord with all our heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:5).
I pray for our endurance. I pray that God gives us a supernatural perseverance and an unwavering hope, even against all odds, Hope. I pray that we remain hidden in the presence of our Father and that our hearts remain set apart for His dwelling and home. I pray not that the Lord hide us away because we were born for such a time as this, hiding His light under a bushel there will be no reward but that when we are ready, He will lift us up high so that those who enter might see His light shining and find their way back home.
We are approaching the final hour. And for this moment were we fashioned by His own hand. Shine, men of God and many will see His Glorious Light and find their way home. If we allow His light to shine through us all we just might save this nation… but if not, perhaps saving our towns, neighborhoods and families will be enough. We can trust God with the harvest of salvation. Let us be as good and faithful servants, planting in the springtime, knowing that He will provide the increase come fall.
It is in His heart to save our nation but men must call upon His holy name
In whose name alone is found salvation for our nation, even unto eternity
Let us shine so that many might find their way.
I hope this encourages you
It’s 4am, I can’t sleep
I felt inspired to encourage our faith.
The Best is Still yet to Come
Many of us will be alive and remain to see it!
Praying for you brothers to become the real men of God.
Pray for me also…
