We look not unto the things of this world. (1Jn. 2:15-17)
We should not deposit within the confines of this place, this place we call home, our Hope. For those of us living in the United States we find it easy to put our hope and faith in the biblical and Godly foundations of this nation that have become institutions administered, manipulated, and corrupted by man. As followers of Christ and the God of The Bible we must first and foremost remember that –this place– as much as we may love it and all that it stands for (as we should) and the blessings it has provided for so many peoples across the globe, yes it IS worth fighting for and defending abroad and most importantly at home however – IS but our temporary home. Our sights must always be fixed and set upon our eternal home, The Kingdom of Heaven and its King.
I know of and hear many people saying, surely God will not let evil triumph in America. These same people seem to have ALL their hope in America, a political party, or even in an individual. Tossed about by every wind of news and misinformation. I am not being negative, nor am I a doubter of what The Lord is capable of doing. The WORD is The Plumb-line, it IS The Standard by which we must discern the time of our present situation and our guide. Unfortunately, yet many believers DO NOT understand that just as it appeared for a moment in time when Jesus died on the cross and was buried, that evil had won. We know how that turned out; He – Christ Jesus rose victoriously from the grave, defeating Satan, death, hell, and grave. So too it is written that in the “last days” that evil will once again “appear” to have won and implement its plan and usher in a global dominance of all its inhabitants. We know or should know how that story ends as well. It is written for us to know the end from the very beginning. Genesis to Revelations and ALL in between The LORD has been letting us know His plan as well as that of the adversary.
So not to be hopeless, or to sound like being a doubting Thomas. But Our Hope is not in this world or this government, or this nation, but In Christ alone! (PS. 62) For this reason we must understand the great mystery which is
Christ in YOU!
The Hope of Glory! (Col. 1:27)
So let us with a fulness of; Joy, Hope, Victory, and Confidence in Him. Set our eyes, our thoughts, our minds, and our purpose on our eternal home and ALL of its GLORY. Standing firm in Righteousness, having gird up our loins in Truth to oppose the evil and wickedness of our day. For America shall not and cannot recover if it will not Repent and turn away from its godless pursuits, and that which exalts itself above everything relating to the God of the bible. “A Great Awakening” does not necessarily imply that our nation will be delivered from the judgement of Almighty God or even alter the course of society and culture, it does however imply a Church revived and actively engaged in the winning or harvest of souls for His Kingdom at all cost in the face of persecution! A Prevailing Church is a Church that GROWS in the heat of BATTLE!
” I WILL Build MY CHURCH, and the Gates of Hell WILL Not Prevail against it”! (Mt. 16:18)
Come Lord Jesus!
This is our anthem and this must be our battle cry:
For Thine is The Kingdom, and The Power, and The Glory! Forever and ever! Hallelujah….Amen!!!
