ONE NATION UNDER GOD
God is majestic,
perfectly good, just, and righteous.
God always does what is right and fair,
and God does it consistently without partiality or prejudice.
God is faithful to His promises.
God is not human, that He should lie,
not a human being, that He should change His mind.
Does God speak and then act?
Does He promise and not fulfill?
God is trustworthy, dependable, and reliable.
God is Love.
God's character is the very personification of love.
God is Infinite.
God is without any limits. God is endless, vast, immeasurable,
and universally omnipresent.
God is not confined, as we are, in our understanding.
God is all-knowing.
God is aware of the past, present, and future.
God's knowledge is total.
God is matchless.
God has no equals.
God has no contenders.
God is not subject to anything outside of Himself.
God is Infinitely above everything
that we can understand or say.
No one can compare to God.
There is no one like God.
God gives life to everything.
God rules His entire creation.
All of creation depends on God.
God is the Creator of time.
God and God alone is self-sufficient.
God has life in Himself.
God is holy and pure.
God is the Supreme Power.
God is infinitely exalted
above and beyond all creation.
over all creation.
God works all things in accordance to His divine plan
which is everlasting and unchangeable.
Men's plans often fail. God's plan never does.
According to Psalm 33,
the temporal plans of mankind
are contrary with the eternal, unchangeable
plans of God.
The Psalmist says,
"God nullifies the counsel of the nations;
He frustrates the plans of the peoples.
The counsel of God stands forever,
the plans of His heart
from generation to generation."
According to scripture,
"God's plan for life began
before the world was made."
As one nation under God
are we trying to
fulfill God's agenda...
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 really
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 governs us all.
God will always lead and guide us
to our greatest good...
God is being kept out of our schools,
government, and many other public places.
We believe taking God out of schools,
government, and public places
has been a dismal failure.
Now people asking questions such as:
Why is there such a moral decline???
Why are people acting
as if they have no conscience???
When God?s existence is removed...
there is no absolute basis for morals,
and that deficit takes a toll on the whole.
Some of our children do not have any respect
for their own parents,
their elders, or themselves.
decision, at the right time, utilizing one's knowledge.
will, say, feel, and do.
All that God is and all that God does
is beyond our finite knowledge.
People who choose to disconnect from God
We must eminently determine that our nation is...
God and a wayward nation
cannot peacefully coexist.
God is opposed to all that is evil and sinful.
No evil can be allowed in God's presence.
"For You are not a God who delights in wickedness;
evil cannot dwell with You."
How can light dwell with darkness?
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.
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.
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's job is to divide and conquer...
and he is notorious for using that age old tactic.
Let us be reminded:
Those who refuse or drift from God's light...
are opening themselves up to total darkness.
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,
and Satan has been remorseless
in his attempts to keep God out of
every institution of our society.
Think about it:
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...
Let us not allow the spiritual decay in our society
to drag us away from God
and God's foundational principles.
there would be pure darkness.
Our restlessness and thirst points to the deeper thirst
that only God can satisfy.It is God and God alone who can quench our thirst
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
A nation without God...
is a nation in serious trouble!
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.
our most basic beliefs and values
are lost in a downward spiral.
It would behoove those who have strayed from God...
not to take another breath...
until they have turned back to God.
"Unless God builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless God watches over the city,
the guards stand watch in vain."
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.
and soberly face our role in creating these problems.
Are we leaving this 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?
It's time for our nation to
repent of its evil and spiritual rebellion
Seeking God first is an experience
that will revolutionize our hearts, minds, and lives!
Knowing God is a privilege...
the greatest privilege of all.
As we begin to know the Infinite God,
we are able to develop a relationship with Him,
rather than to only know about Him.
When we are right with God...
we will be radically transformed.
As we keep our minds fixed on God...
there will be shifts in our attitudes
and shifts in the order of our priorities.
Keeping our eyes fixed on God
helps us to always talk to God,
praise God, thank God, trust God, and obey God.
When our hearts, souls, and minds are focused on God...
we keep a godly perspective.
When our focus is on God...
we can press on to our higher calling
regardless of the distractions around us.
As we fix our eyes on God
our hearts become steadfast...
because we are trusting in God!
When we love God with all our heart and soul...
we can fight the good fight of faith,
and finish the race.
When we speak God's Word in faith...
it will bring deliverance and salvation back into our homes,
communities, cities, states, country, and the world!
When we are right with God...
God will not only show up,
but God will heal our hearts and our land.
"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your minds."
America, we need to anchor ourselves in God, again.
God needs to be included in every facet of our lives.
A Spiritual Revival involves a lot of personal examinations.
It will be a life-changing Spiritual renewal,
not based on a politics,
but a personal connection between us and God.
A God-Centered Spiritual Revival
will bring about a radical change in our thinking,
willings, sayings, feelings, and doings.
We all, individually and collectively, need health and healing.
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.
and we realize,
from an acutely conscious and comparative perspective,
that our country is
a blessed and exceptional nation.
America is still the land of opportunity, abundant natural beauty,
freedom, unlimited resources, and possibilities.
But sadly, 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:
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked;
for whatever a man sows,
this he will also reap.
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.
We are warned in Ephesians 6:12:
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,
but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness in high places.
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.
He wants to murder the pure in heart,
he wants to kill and steal our peace and joy,
he wants to drain, destroy, and kill our spiritual life.
Satan fell because of his pride
and insatiable desire for prominence.
He wanted to be like God.
He wants people to worship and adore him
and follow his evil ways.
He is the source of all that is against
the only true God,
and Satan is busy.
Scripture tells us that Satan masquerades himself
as an angel of light
telling people what they want to hear.
May we stay alert,
standing firm and strong in our faith,
individually and as a nation.
The goal of any spiritual attack
is to turn us away from what God desires to do
in our lives.
Satan seeks to accuse us
so that we feel disqualified from God's use.
For there is no authority except from God,
and those which exist are established by God.
Rulers themselves are placed in their positions of authority
by God. All authorities are established by God.
This means that, even if a leader has taken a position by force of arms,
or through inheritance, or even through a national election
by the vote of the populace,
it is ultimately God who allows.
God is sovereign over all men.
It is imperative that we humble ourselves, stay alert
and awake, and not lean on our own understanding
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.
We cannot expect change to come to this nation
through the election of a person,
no matter which candidate.
Our focus should be on God and God alone...
God uses whomever and whatever He wants to use
in extraordinary ways...
for His glory.
God uses ordinary people.
The divine love of God turns ordinary acts
into extraordinary service.
Sometimes God will allow those
whom we may least expect,
to be used by Him in extraordinary ways...
for His glory.
God can accomplish His purposes
through any individual or situation.
God uses ordinary people, broken people,
outright disobedient people, haughty people,
educated people, uneducated people,
rich people, poor people, messy people,
people who know long suffering,
and those who may be strangers to suffering.
will always be accomplished...
no matter what or who.
Men may resist and fail to respond to God?s grace,
but even then...
God can use bad for good.
God rules and uses anyone and any situation
for His own purposes
as He did with Pharaoh, Moses, Noah,
Lazarus, Jonah, Joseph, Isaiah, Abraham,
Elijah, Isaac, Samson, The Disciples,
Paul, Judas, Gideon, John the Baptist, Peter,
Jacob, Job, and countless others.
Regardless of what your politics may be...
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.
God's peace will protect our thoughts and emotions,
but we must keep our eyes fixed on God...
not on a person or the way things may appear to be.
"My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of Heaven and earth."
Regardless of who occupies the highest seat,
on the nation or world stage,
we are never defeated...
unless we remove our firm foundation...
God can fix our nation,
and God can work through
whomever He chooses.
no matter which method or person God uses,
Now, more than ever, is the time for
America to rise up
and live up to what is written.
Psalm 33:12 reminds us,
God always wants the best for us.
The nation who acknowledges God
is a nation God can bountifully bless.
Our nation can truly rise and be richly blessed
by keeping God in the forefront...
no matter what.
So, let us get...
It matters not what the circumstances are,
God is still God!
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
God is able to change hearts
and make not only our country,
but our world a loving, peaceful,
and healed land.
Through the wisdom of God
From this day forward...
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.
America, let us never turn our backs on God again.
We believe a major shift...
a Spiritual awakening is taking place
in our country and all around the world.
Many will be disappointed as they look to their finances,
and other worldly platforms for answers.
But for those of us who look to God...
we will see God's hand all over this land.
Now is time for each of us
to turn back to God...
and trust God...
Holy is the character of God Himself.
Our sovereign God is all knowing,
all-wise, and all-powerful.
May we always remember and never forget:
As God is glorified,
God is purely unique,
without parallel, and without a coequal.
are inexhaustible treasures
that belong to God
and God alone!
God is subject to nothing
and answers to no one.
This is who our Holy God is.
