Since my family and me attended the Charleston Tea Party, I originally was going to post a blog about the event; however, suddenly it doesn’t seem to matter.
It is evident that God is unwelcome in America.
Plain and simple: our nation is making choices that are fueling us further and further into a God-less nation.
After I read about Obama’s speech at Georgetown University I feel paralyzed as I understand the root of America’s downfall: we are indeed a nation without God.
Does that justify my name being added to Ms. Napalitano’s “watch-list?” Probably but if I outwardly profess to be a follower of the Christ then why would I not stand up for Him? Makes no sense [to me] just as Georgetown University’s decision to cover up the Jesus' name with black plywood while Obama gave his speech this past Tuesday makes no sense. Read story.
Jesus is the identity behind the Jesuit order yet Georgetown University just sold out.
Because the White House asked them!
Does not our Lord deserve more?
Ya’d think, but apparently not.
A nation based on lukewarm convictions is doomed to failure regardless of how many patriots there are. What we need, as a nation, is to humbly get on our knees asking the Lord’s forgiveness and re-invite Him back into our lives and land.
We need to actively work within our own churches and return to the Spirit of Truth without compromise.
Am I naïve? I don’t think so. Let’s review what the Bible says about being lukewarm:
“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:15-16)Has America been spued out of God’s mouth? Is there more to this than meets the eye? Will “putting out the fires” of today really help our children’s future?
Now here’s a surprise: the U.S. Senate is considering whether to approve Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius — the most pro-abortion governor in the country — as President Obama's nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Why am I not surprised…
America, Abortion is wrong – no two sides around that one.
We have before us the consequences of an election that makes us equally as guilty as those in office. We’ve become a people who have sold out on our core principles and values and because?
Because of fear!
The simple truth is this: right is right and wrong is wrong – anything middle of the road is just as wrong as wrong. Through Jesus Christ all things can become new. Through Him, America can be restored. Not through Obama. Not through the Democrats and not through the Republicans.
Why don’t we get this?
Because the majority of us are not who we profess ourselves to be.
Ah-ha! There, I’ve said it!
In today’s reading (Acts 3:11-26) Peter asks the people of Israel a great question: Why are you amazed with this?
“As the crippled man who had been cured clung to Peter and John, all the people hurried in amazement toward them in the portico called "Solomon's Portico." When Peter saw this, he addressed the people, "You children of Israel, why are you amazed at this, and why do you look so intently at us as if we had made him walk by our own power or piety? The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus whom you handed over and denied in Pilate's presence, when he had decided to release him. You denied the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you. The author of life you put to death, but God raised him from the dead; of this we are witnesses. And by faith in his name, this man, whom you see and know, his name has made strong, and the faith that comes through it has given him this perfect health….”By linking Jesus’ resurrection with the man’s healing, Peter was pointing to something far greater than the possibility of physical healing. He was showing us that in His resurrection Jesus had made all things new.
Peter was telling us that the mere name of Jesus—the Messiah who had conquered sin and death—contained enough power to banish darkness and bring restoration. He was telling us that a new way of living has opened up, a way of living focused on Jesus and the power of his resurrection.
When was the last time we’ve genuinely prayed in Jesus’ name? Perhaps when we’re were sick? Or maybe when a loved one was going through a difficult time? Let’s consider now a good time to pray for a miracle for our nation and her people including all her leaders — and pray with confidence. After all, the greatest miracle has already come to pass: Jesus’ resurrection from the dead and His defeat of even death itself!
“Lord, Jesus, please forgive us as I turn over our ailing country and her people to you with confidence, knowing that all things are possible for You. We desperately need more of You and less of us within our upside down nation. Show each of us how powerful Your Name is, so that the United States of America can place all her hope in You and finally be restored to what she was intended to be! I humbly ask this for the sake of our children and those not yet born.”
