WHERE IS AMERICA IN THE CYCLE FROM BONDAGE TO FREEDOM AND BACK?

Lord God Almighty, raise up Your Church to be active Christians, joining the battle rather than standing on the sidelines.
391 People Prayed

As our nation is engaged in a time of getting ready to once again vote for our nation’s leader, it is important to remind ourselves what a blessed privilege it is to be able to let our voices be heard. We have the honor and the biblical responsibility to stand for what the Scriptures command. What an honor and delight to be able to raise a voice for biblical righteousness.

I was once with a congressman who gave me some important words to remember. We were discussing his upcoming election when, from memory, he gave me some wonderful words of wisdom. He said, “David, never forget that in the course of every nation we will go from bondage to freedom, and back to bondage, if we are not vigilant to lift our voices for righteousness:
For deep bondage in a nation produces great faith.
Great faith produces great courage.
Great courage
 produces great freedom.
Great freedom
 produces great abundance.
Great abundance
 produces great apathy.
Great apathy
 produces great dependence.

Great dependence produces great bondage.

Four biblical assurances that can help preserve our cherished freedoms are:

  1. REMEMBER, AS CHRISTIANS, WE CAN TRUST IN GOD TO SUPPLY OUR NEEDS

“Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” Matthew 6:26

It is much easier to trust God when times are prosperous and all needs are met, but when we stretch our faith and accept His promise when times are bad; that is when mighty works of God will occur. Whether you’re unemployed or possibly at the brink of financial despair, God will provide. The apostle Paul states, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus”(Philippians 4:19). Call on this promise today through the power of Christ Jesus. Accept the peace that He has to offer. Stop trying to figure out how you will fix every problem in your life and rest in the arms of the Father. He never fails!

  1. BE FAITHFUL TO WITNESS FOR CHRIST AND BE ACTIVE IN YOUR CHURCH

“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.”Proverbs 11:30

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15

Sharing the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ is something that every Christian is commanded to do. What a privilege it is that here in America we have the liberty to share our faith!

  1. WORK HARD AND HELP OTHERS

“I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35

We live in a selfish society. The cutthroat mentality that will do anything to get ahead has permeated the collective conscious of many in our world today. A sharp contrast is given from the Word of God regarding how His people should act. All work should be done to honor God and to bring glory to His name. Self-promotion should be void in the life of a believer. True satisfaction in life will come out of accepting the purpose God has given you and doing everything in your power to help build up others. Have you ever met a truly happy selfish person? It’s simply not possible to be self-absorbed and happy. We were not created to live that way. Embrace God’s plan and peace—contentment and joy will follow.

  1. PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR HEART IS

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:19-21

People claim to care about a lot of different things, but the best way to truly see what matters most is to see what they are willing to invest their time and financial resource in.

Many might say they care about the souls of the lost and want to see their city reached for Christ, but they don’t faithfully give to their local church. Some might see the way America is changing and want to fight back to defend their Christian liberties so that their children and grandchildren can experience the same America that they had the privilege of experiencing, but they don’t pray for their nation or support the efforts others are making.

I urge you to be an active Christian. Far too many believers are on the sideline and the battle is far too important to lose.

  1. If anyone be in Christ; he is a new creature, old things have passed away and all things have become new
    (2 Cor.5:17.) Christians need to remember that Christ did not save us so He could walk with us in our sins. He saved us so we could walk with Him away from our sinful lifestyles. God tells us in (Exodus 20) to love Him, and love one another. Today, those commandments are impossible to do unless the author (Jesus) of those commandments abides inside of us. With Him teaching and leading us, we do by nature what the commandments say. If He is our LORD (property owner), we are commanded to love Him, and love one another.

    Maranatha = our LORD comes!

  2. “great abundance produces great apathy”, and if you, our good God, has to take away this abundance…how many of us who proclaim you now will be offended? Lord God, please keep us honest before you, reveal any idol we have before you. I ask that you would free your people form the apathy that wealth has caused in them, and if taking that wealth away is the only cure, than we thank you for your love in removing it. Lead on our Lord, and may we who call you by name follow. In Jesus name, Amen

  3. Praise God hallelujah😇 so true how WE have to begin with ourselves. God said “if My people..”. 2 Cronicles 7:14 We can start a revival through humbling & praying. May all pastors instill this to their churches. We need to get back to prayer & the Word that’s going to convert the souls. Be blessed 🙏✝️🕊😇

  4. May the Lord of heaven and earth awake every Christian with a loud and powerful voice to rule our nation with a righteous heart mind soul and spirit to do what we were created to do!!!! In the powerful Name of Jesus!

  5. There are Three things the Holy Spirit has revealed to me in purging me of my sin: hypocrisy, half-truths, cowardliness.
    Before I can intercede for others, I must allow the Lord to expose the stumbling blocks in me, which prevent my prayers from being received by a Holy God.
    2 Chronicles 7:14, 1 John 9:1
    Judgment begins with the household of God. He disciplines those whom He loves.
    Therefore, there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus who through our faith purifies our souls and makes us effective witnesses of His Truth. Praise God for His faithfulness!

    1. Amen Mary. If God’s household lacks courage and is mired in sin, how much more shall society be fallen?
      The Lord will recruit His servants and purge their sin. May we remain steadfast in prayer.

      1. It is true that we must pray to the Lord of the harvest to thrust out workers but are we willing to be the prepared, equipped, Holy Spirit trained ones to answer the call by laying aside every weight of sin? Let us humble ourselves before the mighty hand of God and get rid of the little foxes that spoil the vine. We want to lift up Holy hands into the Lord without wrath or doubting. He will not hear us if we have iniquity in our hearts. But He is faithful and just to forgive us of all unrighteousness. Amen!
