For the first time ever since starting this blog, I will actually be stating my feelings and how I feel. Ok here it goes. America, this is our fault, little by little we allowed the government to tell us what was good for us and what was not. And we have forgotten that our Father KNOWS what is good for us and what is not. Read Exodus 20, where God gave just 10 commandments. I am born again. I have been washed by HIS blood not the government. Read Ephesians 2:11-13. We have allowed them to take Jesus and anything from Him out of the school all in the name of tolerance. Yes, this happened many years ago and we are still holding on for the few that it offends. If you don't believe in God then this whole blog will offend you. We allowed the government to take over teaching our children instead of PARENTS teaching our children. And God does say in His Word for children to obey their parents. Read Colossians 3:18-25 and their is plenty more. America has had past sin and horrible actions but in the Great Book that I read, my God talks about forgiveness. And wow there is a lot of Scripture on forgiveness. But here is just one read Matthew 5:21-26. Forgiveness is a big key on bringing America back around. As a Christ follower, it is my job to love everyone, not always like what they are doing but to love everyone, teach God's word through Scripture, my words and my deeds. I have wronged some people and I have been wronged but that is the beauty of Jesus Christ, I can be forgiven and can forgive. When did America forsake what all those that have gone on before us did, they DIED to make us free. They died so we could have choices. But Jesus Christ did the ultimate death, He made a way back to our eternal Home. When did we forget. Now that it has been brought to our attention, what are we going to do? Are we going to sit behind a computer screen, a phone or whatever device that you use and complain. Most will, but first we must get our hearts set on Jesus and then let's remind the government who pays their salary. I don't know about you but if I don't work, I don't get paid. Read 2 Thessalonians 3:10. Believe it or not, all the answers to all of our questions can be found in the Bible. We all need to hit our knees and let God reveal his truth. The Bible clearly tells how we should treat each other and how we should treat this magnificent country that He gave us. If you are part of the human race then you are part of my family and yes even if you don't believe in God, you are still a part. I will pray for you and hope that one day you will see what I see- LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL! I will not force anyone to believe what I believe but don't ask me about it because my soul is on fire for Jesus and I sure will let you know. Not my interpretation but God's. We will open that Bible and get right to it. So if you call yourself a Christian, please stop and hit the pause button before you condemn your fellow man. Because remember God says in Matthew 7:1-5, that the way we judge our brothers and sisters is the same manner He will judge you. I have been saying for a while now to RISE UP, we are so scared of a virus but we are not at all concerned about Jesus. If you follow Christ, then step out of your boat onto the crashing waves and do what God is calling- PREACH THE WORD! No you don't need a pulpit but you do need a life filled with the Holy Spirit. Where are you men and women of courage? Where are you Christ followers? Get off the fence and RISE UP! You are about to loose all freedoms especially the freedoms in Christ. Have a blessed day and RISE UP!!!!!
