A Blessed Fourth of July!
Psa 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
To those of you dear readers who call America your earthly home, I want to wish you a very happy and blessed birthday. Our nation was brought forth as the result of a church relocation. Those pilgrims moved their local church from England to Holland to Plymouth, Mass.
Our nation was built on the Principles of the Word of God. Our founding documents are rife with Scriptural directives. Our early leaders were committed believers in Jesus Christ. The least religious of our founders were abundantly more conversant in the Scriptures than many of today's theologians. Every state constitution proclaims dependance on the God of heaven.
In short, America is a Christian nation, our president's statements to the world notwithstanding. Though a large part of our population may yet be unredeemed, The ten commandments and the golden rule still guide our public conduct.
Yet, the anti religious God-haters are cutting a wide swath in our public discourse and are making great gains in our culture. It is incumbent upon Bible believers that we stay ever so close to the Savior and stand strong in our biblical conviction. Mostly, we must bravely stand and be extremely vociferous in our demands that God and the Bible be not cast aside from the fabric of our culture.
II Chronicles 7:14 must be applied if our nation hopes to remain a shining light on a hill, a beacon to the world for hope, liberty and righteousness.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
May God bless you and keep you safe on America's birthday.
