A grave misjudgment occurs in America. It’s not simple confusion. There is a higher agenda at work. Under chic clichés: “separation of church of state”, “political correctness “and “not to offend, but to respect”, sinister forces toil within our country. Their focus is to strip the foundations which made America great.
Ps 11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
Without the doctrines which define this country, we are a proverbial chicken with its head cut off. I have seen a headless chicken. Aimlessly it runs, easily it is captured and killed.
Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
A head, owns the brain, the eyes and ears. The head is the guiding, planning and seeing principle of a body and a people. Christ Jesus is the head of the body of Christ. Christ has been the head of America. So it was on this head that this nation was founded upon. The head, Christ Jesus, has steered our country soundly.
Under the emblem of “separation of church and state”, powers now conspire to cut off this head and reduce America into a frenzied chicken easily snagged, killed and cooked.
Political correctness is used by devil to shred the foundations which made our country what it was. He tempts unassuming people to be politically correct under the mask of accommodation, tolerance and respect. At the end, those whom we try to accommodate despise us for not being loyal to our values.
The work of political correctness in Satan’s hands is not accommodation or tolerance, but for this country to give up her rights to what made her great. A house without foundations will fall. Make no mistake, this is political correctness’s hidden agenda.
We are not fighting a battle against human beings but against invisible evil forces set in heavenly locations. Satan’s goal is to eradicate America of its Judeo Christian fundamentals, craft deception, birth confusion, and produce a secular nation from what once was the greatest gospel carrying, mission minded country.
The devil’s goal is to weaken the church, take many to hell and introduce the antichrist.
Don’t be fooled. We can have absolute liberty for all religions, and the lack thereof and still cleave to our head. No religion needs endorsement, but our head must be preserved on our neck. If the devil succeeds in chopping this head, chaos will break and aliens to our values, who never let a good crisis go to waste, will seize it.
These truisms “separation of church of state”, “political correctness” and “not to offend, but to respect” are head chopping instruments! Beware!
The arrogance of western nations is to congratulate themselves in their varied opinions, many viewpoints, and accommodating beliefs. Westernized people pride themselves in being opinionated. The plethora of their opinions mean little if not in agreement with God’s truths. In reality, many opinions exacerbate deception and distraction from the one voice of God.
When I lived in Kenya, the Muslim call to pray in the early morning daily woke me up. It irked because the prayers blared over loudspeakers and into my open windows. We call this noise pollution, but I respected that Muslims had more passion than I to wake up and pray. I was not offended by it. I was not irreparably damaged by the blasting noise. Baloney to those who claim irreparably damage by the mention of Jesus Christ. It’s just another ploy. The name of Allah did not wound me in Tanzania, Uganda or Kenya.
There is no Muslim nation that relinquishes the worship of Allah to put the worship of Jesus next to it. For them, Allah is the head, and they hold on to it. There is no Muslim populace which apologizes for its beliefs. There are no “politically correct” Muslim countries.
The notion of offending people is more a figment of our own cowardly imagination than realism. Folk are much less offended than what we think. People respect those who hold on to standards and principles which define them.
Offense ensues from the very ones whom we cower and bow down to in the guise of political correctness and the fear of offending.
What does a girl think of a guy who is insecure, apologetic, and bashful? Heck, she has no respect! What generates admiration? Confidence, assurance, convictions and principles. Fear breeds contempt. Courage breeds respect. We have incubated the contempt of others by our spineless timidity to accommodate and not offend.
God is using the very rebuff of Him by America, to open a door of deception back upon the country which this rejection brings. The deception begets spiritual darkness which actualizes bondage upon people. The darkness and bondage results in aimless confusion and America’s eventual despair. God employs America’s despair to test and sift the heart and soul of the country. So far America as she is being tested, has yet not realized, that her only way out of the mess is to turn back to God.
Human nature only seeks God when everything else fails. Every other penchant will fail, if it’s not God. Our country is still experimenting with every other preference except God. They will all fail.
Meanwhile, God allows our own perpetrated antics which leave Him out of the picture to continue to sift and test us. The problems of America are not financial or political. They are God problems, or problems which America has contrived by rejecting God. America is not in a financial crisis, it is in a God crisis. Part of its fix is in the hands of the church. The body of Christ has been called to be salt and light from above to lead America out of her self inflicted despair.
The consequences of rejecting the author of life, light, and freedom is just the opposite; death, darkness and bondage.
America’s dismissal of a God specified morality founded on His wisdom, love and freedom, is now forcing the country to create its own. Look at our public institutions. No soft drinks. Food is being regulated by public schools and not parents. Massachusetts is banning bake sales, in the name of health.
Whereas God’s principles are outfitted by Him to produce freedom and wholeness which comes by faith and obedience to His voice, America’s self-promulgated morality is fear based.
One of America’s idols is safety. We are a safety crazed nation, a principle which is propelled by those who have lost their faith.
Trust in God puts safety second before obedience to Him, knowing that the safest place to be is in His will.
The opposite of faith is fear. Faith is a risk taker, it’s exploratory, brave, and audacious. A vacuüm of faith cultivates mistrust, which nurtures a need for safety and self-protection. America once a nation of adventurous, exploratory entrepreneurs is now safety motivated, and protection minded by fear driven people. This is the aftermath of snubbing God for our own conceits.
The church must set the example of godly audacity, fearlessness and perform the exploits which faith brings. The church must become salt and light and a leader of America to bring he into faith and out of fear.
God is the great protector of our nation. When we reject Him, we lose His mighty protection and find ourselves cowardly running to our own.
Many of our dietary regulations are fear based and safety driven. I am not against good health. I am against the idol which it creates because we put our trust in fear generated safety, rather than the safety which trust in God creates.
Only Christ, can create, a titanium spine, as was once stated of Michelle Bachman. Without Christ, our head, our strength and our power are no more. America is in danger of succumbing to the spine of a jellyfish.
Ultimately, the holding of this nation’s head, Christ, is in the hands and on the neck of the church. In Kenya, the church is powerful enough to influence much of the decisions which the government makes. The Kenyan parliament knows that if the church votes against, many are out of a job.
Yesterday we were watching, “Driving Miss Daisy”. In the film there was a speech given by Martin Luther King, and I quote.
“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the vitriolic words and the violent actions of the bad people, but the appalling silence and indifference of the good people. Our generation will have to repent not only for the words and acts of the children of darkness, but also for the fears and apathy of the children of light.”
Does it sound like the church of 2012?
So on this day, I not only say Happy Mother’s Day to the hundreds an even thousands of wonderful mothers, and mothers to be, which God has graced my family to know all over the globe.
I say Happy Mother’s Day to Mother America.
God bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home
God bless America, My home sweet home
