Independence Day


 

I love America.

I believe that we were allowed to exist by the Creator and endowed with inalienable rights to pursue life, liberty and happiness not on our terms but His.

We as a nation have lost track of this fact. Our schools and universities teach the opposite values, which ignore our Creator, His order, His freedom, and His peace.

Our existence was predicated, as all nations are, on His order but we have turned His order around and declared ourselves free on our terms instead. We now are in hot pursuit of destruction as a nation, hastened by a government that wants an order of affairs on its terms and not God’s, who created us. Paul gave this analysis of what will become of us as a result:

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Romans 1:18-25

The world is convinced that the Scriptural foundation of America is enslaved to ancient and outdated rules and morals which have no place today. More is the pity.

As the constitutional guarantees we’ve enjoyed for over 200 years become less and less certain and more and more misinterpreted, twisted, and deliberately misused by government at every level, we must remember the conditions under which God allows us to exist. One of these is:

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. Galatians 5:13-15

We still have time and many, myself included, are not ready to give in to the world’s order of affairs. God’s conditions for recovery are simple and we simply must surrender.

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 I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

God has blessed us mightily. Love one another and love Him, above all.
