As one nation under God


are we trying to fulfill God's agenda...


God's plan...

or are we trying to fulfill our own agenda?


Are we trusting only governmental agencies, 


influences,and their processes...


or are we trusting the power of God Almighty?



Are we attempting to bring ourselves glory...


rather than giving all the praise, honor, and glory to God?



Are we contributing to the decline of our society


by refusing to take a good look at our standards


 and behaviors?



What are we doing to ourselves?



Are we living as

  

Are we really putting our trust in God

as it relates to the Spiritual state of our nation?

Have we become so arrogant and haughty

that we think we are capable 

of disconnecting from God

and fixing ourselves?

Have we become the highest authority?

Has our nation wandered from the course 

God has set for us?

Is it possible that our nation 

has become rebellious

to the point of deviating from God's will?

Have we become defiant toward Almighty God?

Are we walking with God according to Scripture?

Are we, as a nation, embracing our lower nature

and following ungodliness and worldly desires,

or are we living righteously 

and being a light in this world?

Are we keeping God in the forefront 

of all of our affairs?

Who is on the throne of your heart???

God is the Highest Authority of all of creation...

God governs us all.

God will always lead and guide us

to our greatest good...

yet, God is being kept out of our schools,

government, and many other public places.

The foundation of our society and nation


  is under a relentless attack by the usurper, Satan,


who hates and rejects God. 



Satan, the perverter of truth, 


is attempting to root out God


and the moral foundations


upon which our nation was founded.



Sadly, far too many have allowed themselves 


to drift with the tide. 

 

Trust...


Satan has a field day when people become 


willfully ignorant and drift outside of God's will. 


Satan wants to turn people away from 


what is good, true, and morally right. 


Satan wants us to become


 distant from God.


He wants to remove and silence 


any mention of God


and totally disrespect 


God's moral laws.



Satan has been remorseless


 in his attempts 


to keep God out of 


every institution of our society.

A nation without God...


is a nation in serious trouble!



Without God...


all we are left with is despair.



There is no greater tragedy 


than abandoning God. 


 

When we abandon God...


our souls are left empty, twisted,


restless, and wandering.



Without God one begins to realize nothing short of 


sinking sand.



Without God...


our most basic beliefs and values


are lost in a downward spiral.


Let us be reminded:


Those who refuse or drift from God's light...


are opening themselves up to total darkness.

Expelling God from our schools, 


government, and public places


has been a dismal failure.

Without God... 


there is pure darkness.

Without God...

our society and nation could not be properly governed.


In a world without God, 


people would not have any real sense of good and evil.


Without God there can be no objective right and wrong. 


When we leave God out of our lives...


we become our own rulers and losers... simultaneously.


Without God there is moral chaos. 

Without God...


"People will be lovers of themselves,


lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive,


disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,


without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,


treacherous, rash, conceited,


lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God."


2 Timothy 3:2-4 

We can do many things without God such as:


Acquire wealth, start a business, and get an education,


but only when these things are in God's will


can we find true joy and fulfillment.



To leave God out of all that we do 


or attempt to do... leaves one with


 an impoverished existence.


Our children face an epidemic level 


of violence in our schools.


  It is beyond a coincidence


that every social barometer 


took a nose dive


once God was banished


  from our schools,


 government, and public places.


When God’s existence is removed...


there is no absolute basis for morals, 


and that deficit 


takes a toll on the whole!



A country that takes God out of schools,


government, and public places


can easily stray from godly ways


and plummet from righteous living,


prosperity, and success.


The single most important part of any building...


is the foundation.



Can the values and liberties of our nation 


be thought secure


when we have removed


 the Highest Authority and Lawgiver...


our only firm foundation...

The Spiritual fiber of our society 


is on the brink of imploding. 



Extremely wicked and blatant Spiritual corruption


is on the rise... 


causing people to drift further and further


away from anything resembling a godly and 


conscious culture.


This moral breakdown is corroding the foundations


 of our society. 


As a society, we are 


decomposing from the inside out. 


If we are honest with ourselves… 


we see the evidence of this moral decay


 all around us every day. 


People have become uncaring,


 unproductive, disrespectful, and clueless.


 Some of our children do not have a clue about


 consciously applying God's truth to their lives.


 As a result they do not know what is right


 and what is wrong.


 They have been put in a position


where they can easily become


 contaminated, tainted, toxic, and targeted by the


  morally corrupt and perverted things of this world. 

School shootings and gangs are on the rise.


Some of our youth will take a life


without a second thought.


There is an epidemic of teen pregnancy,


sexually transmitted diseases, and drug abuse.


Some of our children do not have any respect


for their own parents,


their elders, or themselves.



Some campuses are equipped with metal detectors.


Some are armed with guns....


guns?


Ever wonder why schools,


 governments, and families 


have experienced so much chaos???


People are asking:


Why is there such a moral decline?


 Why are people acting


as if they have no conscience?


Can the attempt to remove God

,

from the equation,


 have anything to do with


our crumbling values? 


God has not been allowed in our schools,


government, and many public places!!!


We have removed 


our moral Compass,


and we are facing the consequences


of our own decisions.


"The chickens have come home


 to roost!"



God didn't walk away from us.


We turned and walked away 


from God!


We have excluded God.

What some people may not realize is...


dozens of revelations are happening


right before our eyes!

These astonishing events and the 


resulting consequences 



were foretold, by God, long ago.


With few exceptions... 


there is lack of respect and courtesy.


Some people feel like they should be able to do 


whatever they want, whenever they want... 


however they want because they are 


 unleashed, and unconstrained to do as they please.



Rampant narcissism, a sense of entitlement, 


and a lack of consideration for others is on the rise.


Some parents are not teaching their children about


what is right and what is wrong. 


Far too many of our youth don't know 


the difference between good and evil. 


People are dishonest and crime is on the rise. 


The breakdown of the family structure 


has become the new norm; 


and people are not being accountable 


for their bad, crass, and rude behavior.


On the surface many can appear to be accomplished,


fulfilled, and carefree...


while inside...


they feel as dead and needy


as parched grass on a searing summer day.


God's standard of truth


 has always helped us


 recognize right from wrong.


People who choose to disconnect from God


essentially sense that something is missing.


They feel a void that cannot be filled with achievements,


accomplishments, knowledge, or any other worldly things.


They experience emptiness, 


sometimes bitterness


because they have cut themselves off


from the Source of life...


In our present liberalized society, 


people feel justified in choosing their own values.

Very little seems to be censored in television. 


The anonymity of the internet and the easy access 


to all sorts of despicable pornography is devilish. 


One can easily find excessive violence


 and savagery in some of the video games.


 The crassness of some of the present-day 


music extols self gratification and sexual promiscuity


With cell phones... anything goes.


All of these devices may go to any extreme 


to capture the attention of viewers, listeners, and readers. 


Sadly, they play a role in our moral decline. 

Far too many people are acting as if they


can no longer tell the difference between good and evil.

Some have purposely waged 


an all-out assault on morals, values,


and common sense.

It is so unfortunate that in this great, 


free country, where anything is possible, 


we as a society talk about crime and corruption,


and don't realize these societal ills


are the consequences of poor behavior.

When the hub is not in place...

 

the spokes run wild!



In other words...

 

When God is not in the forefront 


of all of our affairs...


Heart,


Homes,


Schools,

 

Government,


and Public places...


we implode.


Scripture warns...

Smart people can sometimes feel that they are experts


in what they have been trained for,


and they lose sight of what they do not know.


They can make disastrous decisions based on knowledge


that is incomplete...


because it has not been tested


in the fire of experience,


and that, in and of itself, can be a dangerous thing.


Clearly, the startling decline in the morals of this world


are screaming for something to be done.

Since the 1960s there has been a disproportionate increase


in the number of teen pregnancies, unwanted pregnancies,


abortions, and at-risk sexual behavior.


 There has been an epidemic of sexually transmitted 


diseases.



Our educational system is allowed to teach our children


how to put a condom on a banana,


but fails to teach the students to intentionally decide


to abstain and not engage in at-risk sexual behavior.



Why not teach students the way to totally avoid


pregnancy, abortions,


at-risk sexual behavior, and STDs???



It appears that something is fundamentally wrong


when a teacher can be allowed to teach a student


how to put a condom on a banana...


and is not allowed to teach the student

  

the importance and benefits of abstinence.


Let us take inventory


to see if we are simply treating 


symptoms...


rather than diagnosing


and resolving the the real problems.

The evidence is overwhelming and the solution is clear;


God should be in the forefront 


of all that we think,


will, say, feel, and do.




All that God is and all that God does


is beyond our finite knowledge.


God is not confined, as we are, in our understanding.




God has all the answers.


God is all wise.


God's knowledge is limitless and can never be exhausted. 




God is the Solution to any problem


or concern we could ever have.




When God speaks...


it shall be done.

If God is not in the forefront of all of our thoughts,


work, will, words, and doings...


nothing will last,


everything will crumble!



When God is left out of our lives...


the more we willingly allow the world’s thoughts, 


will, words, and doings to penetrate, pollute, and corrupt


our hearts and minds.



Without God... 


our lives would have no purpose.


Hearts will always remain thirsty, unfulfilled, 


and restless...


until hearts are at rest in God's pure love


which can and will fill us to overflowing. 


Can we leave the world


 better than we found it...


by leaving God out?




No one can pass through life 


without leaving tracks behind.



Will the tracks we leave 


be helpful to those coming after us...


in finding their way? 


Essentially, one will come to realize...


regardless of our endeavors...


we can do nothing of lasting value...


unless God blesses our work.



To exclude God out of our thoughts,


will, words, and doings


is the greatest wickedness that can be.

We love 

and we realize,


from an acutely conscious and comparative perspective,


that our country is


a blessed and exceptional nation. 


God, in His great wisdom,


has put a hedge of protection all around the United States. 


America is still the land of opportunity,


 abundant natural beauty,


freedom, unlimited resources, and possibilities.



But sadly, it appears we have taken 


God's constant outpouring of blessings


and developed this all about us attitude 


and selfishly refused to... bless God in return.


Scripture reminds us:

Galatians 6:7

This principle also applies to our nation.


We have freedom of choice,


but we do not have freedom


from the consequences of those choices.

Our nation cannot stay on its present course


and expect to continue experiencing God's blessing.


In these perilous times, 


with so many storms on the horizon,


it would befit us to wake up and realize that the enemy,


Satan, is still busy at work, more than ever


and he wants to divide, confuse, and stir people up.



He does not stand in the truth, 


because there is no truth in him.


When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources.


Satan is the father of lies.


He is a deceiver and master in sowing discord and hate.


Lies, deception, divisiveness, and evil doings


are all consistent with Satan's character.


Satan is darkness,


and the darkness hates light.

Satan is not only deadly,


but often is so well camouflaged...


many people do not even see him.

Satan loves for people to be blind, distracted,


flattered, and gullible to his deceptions.


He is a cunning, manipulative, and a deceptive liar


who tries to plant ugly lies and seeds of doubt


about the goodness of God.


He tries to silence the voice of God within our hearts.


He loves to get people caught up in his snare


so that his devilish intentions can still be carried out.


Satan is both a lion that devour and a serpent that deceives.


Many unsuspecting individuals


are blindsided by Satan's Spiritual attacks.

Scripture tells us that Satan masquerades himself


as an angel of light


 telling people what they want to hear.


Satan continues in his warfare and rebellion, today.


Satan is alive and well...


and fiercely fighting against...


the Living God.  



He hates God and tries to disrupt and corrupt


God's plans... by any means.


He desires the glory which belongs to


God and God alone.

Satan is on a mission to kill, steal,


 and destroy anything that even 


reminds him of God.

Satan wants to bring death to us 


and our country.


The goal of any spiritual attack


is to turn us away from


what God desires to do in our lives.

It's time for our nation to repent 


of its evil and spiritual rebellion


against God.

It would behoove those who have strayed from God...


not to take another breath...


until they have turned back to God.

The time is now for our nation to 


recognize that we cannot fix ourselves.


We cannot overcome obstacles


through simple perseverance,


and human ingenuity.   



If we trust in God,


we cannot depend upon our own ability


to understand everything God is doing.


We cannot abandoned God...


and think it is wise to look to the government


to heal our land.

It is imperative that 


we humble ourselves 


and acknowledge our need

 

and dependence on God.


Let us not allow the spiritual decay in our society


to drag us away from God


and God's foundational principles.


America, let us anchor ourselves


 in God, again.


Let us include God in every facet


 of our lives. 


In order for us all to live the abundant life God has for us...


and clear a path for the next generations...


we must, individually and collectively,


make God and God alone...


our first priority, always.

Seeking God first 


and keeping God first


is an experience that will revolutionize 


our hearts, minds, and lives!

Regardless of what your politics may be...


God has the capacity of speaking things into existence,


not just galaxies and life forms,


but solutions to any problem we could ever have...


individually and collectively. 



When God's hand is in it... when we let God abide...


and rest in God's sovereignty...


we can be assured...


God will give us peace which surpasses all understanding.


Psalm 33:12 reminds us,

God always wants the best for us.


The nation who acknowledges God


is a nation God can bountifully bless.


We must eminently determine 


that our nation is...


under God.

Truly, the world is in trouble, our country is in trouble,


our neighborhoods, schools, and families are in trouble.


 Let us all, genuinely, pray for the revival of our families,


communities, cities, states, country, and the world.


When we surrender all to God, the Creator of all things,


Who is above all things, Who rules over all things,


and governs all things...


then we will truly be blessed


with the security, freedom, and peace


our country and this world


consciously or unconsciously seeks.


May we, as a nation, pray and surrender


all that we think, will, say, feel, and do


to God.


God is able to change hearts and make 


not only our country, but our world a loving, 


peaceful, and healed land.

It is a crucial time for our nation 


to collectively


seek God's divine intervention.

Let us pray for God's guidance


and blessing on our nation. 


Let us pray not only for our nation, 


but for our leaders, for all who govern us,


and for all who are in authority in any way.



Let us pray that the kingdom of righteousness


be manifested in their hearts


as they receive the wisdom of God.



May all who are in authority realize


and focus on God's infinite goodness


within themselves 


and within all humanity.



Let us pray that all who are in authority


will bear the marks of God's love, 


presence, and power,


and not become susceptible to lies 


and evil undertakings.



Through the wisdom of God 


may all those in authority of this land


be unified in thought 


and purpose to properly and


uprightly govern and guide our nation.



May they all do what is good 


and acceptable


in the sight of God.


May God bless our nation as we return and follow God


 with God-fearing, humble hearts. 


May we, as a nation, 


act in obedience to Almighty God.



From this day forward...


May America's greatest desire be to open our hearts

 

and allow the Spirit and power of God


to flow in our lives...

 

forevermore. 

It is time for all God fearing


 individuals to be agents of change,


reconciliation, and unity.



Now is the time to lead our country


toward behaviors


that will honor Almighty God.
