As one nation under God
are we trying to fulfill God's 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
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.
When an individual, a household, a neighborhood,
a city, a state, and/or a country accepts ways of life
that are forbidden in the Scripture,
its society will be strickened with darkness...
with morally bankrupt people.
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 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!
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
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.
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.
"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
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....
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
God didn't walk away from us.
We turned and walked away
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
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...
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,
because they have cut themselves off
from the Source of life...
In our present 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...
and Public places...
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
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
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
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.
our lives would have no purpose.
Hearts will always remain thirsty, unfulfilled,
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.
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:
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
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...
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.
As 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.
It is a crucial time for our nation
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
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
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...
It is time for all God fearing
individuals to be agents of change,
reconciliation, and unity.
Now is the time to lead our country
that will honor Almighty God.
