Our pledge says “one nation under God.” Without God we are one nation under. People are silent, they bend the knee or just refuse to acknowledge the flag. The pledge is no longer there in our public places as it was. Too many soak up the treasures of this world. There are too many takers instead of givers.
There was a fiasco on television this week as many candidates tried to get our vote. There was every vile, socialistic and communistic idea you can think of floated out. The exalting of the murder of children and sexual perversion is horrible. We’re told we have the right to do anything but we’re not under the judgement of the Supreme Court; we’re under the judgement of God. A nation under God is seen in Psalm 9; it eclipses the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. The Word of God is the document we must consider. The Word is forever settled in heaven. Some politicians have no idea what America is about. They want a vote and money. We’re a nobody to most of them. Anymore I don’t care what our leaders think. We don’t please man. Don’t worry if you’re not politically correct. Are you pleasing God? A nation stands and falls on its relationship with God.
4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right. 7 But the Lord shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment. 8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness. 15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken. 16 The Lord is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah. 17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. 18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. 19 Arise, O Lord; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. 20 Put them in fear, O Lord: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
A nation is known by its laws. The Declaration of Independence was signed 243 years ago. The Constitution came later. Once in place there was not a nation like the US in the world. We were one nation under God that inferred a belief in God and that guidance was the Bible under the eyes of God. Making America great again won’t come through economics. It will be by turning back to the precepts that made us America. They were biblical precepts. When America messed up it was not the fault of the documents we made or God’s or our neighbor’s. It was the fault of everyone who said we don’t need to be under God and follow those precepts. When we began to take advantage of the liberty with little regard for God and use it as a license to sin, we saw America weaken.
Now our laws say it’s legal to destroy human life before birth. Abort means to stop. Your main breaker thrown aborts electricity to every room in your house. Murder was legalized. A nation is known by its laws. So many others have been passed. We must remember the eyes of man are not where we’ll be accountable. It’s in the eyes of God. Now right is wrong and wrong is right. A nation known by these laws will fall. The Bible tells us that “righteousness exalteth a nation but sin is a reproach to any people.” Biblical rightness is needed. It’s laid out in the Bible and it’s not just for America. It’s not just for the Jews. It’s for the whole world.
Abraham was told that God would bless those who blessed him. Abraham believed God and it was counted for righteousness. Our faith in God is the only thing that can be considered righteousness. We may not be perfect but we must continue to be Christian Americans if we want to continue. Remain a Christian the way God says do it.
Now it’s all is okay; it’s all someone else’s fault. Paul said he kept his body under subject lest he himself became a cast away. This is what’s happening: a lot of professing and talk. We see others faults but not our own. A good prayer might be “Lord, judge me now.” We need to be forced to see our own selves how God sees us. We must remember to hate sin but not the sinner. If you’ve messed up take responsibility for it. Admit your sin and say “Lord, fix me.” Come back to God and America can be great again.
Our leaders are not super heros. They are mere men and women. Help us all to realize we’re people who need God.
