Righteousness Exalts a Nation!
The United States and its citizens
French writer Alexis de Tocqueville, after visiting America in 1831, said, “I sought for the greatness of the United States in her commodious harbors, her ample rivers, her fertile fields, and boundless forests–and it was not there. I sought for it in her rich mines, her vast world commerce, her public school system, and in her institutions of higher learning–and it was not there. I looked for it in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution–and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great!”
Alexis de Tocqueville.
This quote may be old, yet it is still true, and I still believe that America is good!
I do not believe this based upon the insanity I see in the Media, or the corruption and treachery I see in politics. I base this upon the fire I still see in the churches, the flaming pulpits of righteousness that still burn with fresh fire taken from the living coals of God’s alters of prayer.
My faith is no longer in the leaders of this nation, but in good, solid, hard-working American’s who still value truth, honor, honesty, hard-work, love, sacrifice, and concern for our fellow man.
Yes, our families are under attack, our government has been shown to be less than perfect, some churches, have laid down their swords, and given up the fight for holiness, and given into to moral compromise.
But I have not!
And I am convinced that I am not alone!
Righteousness exalts a nation, and Jesus is our ever living Lord.
I am calling on good, American people to serve Jesus, and to turn this vile tide of wickedness away from this nation once again.
One by one, person by person, we can decide to live right before God, and any one of us, walking with the Creator of the universe, becomes a majority, as His power displayed justifies, vindicates, and delivers us from wickedness both within our hearts, and from the hearts of those around us.
Love holiness, seek purity, and regain the fire of His presence that will burn through your eyes, as His passion blazes through you.
You will see Jesus, staring back at you in the mirror in the morning, His fire in your eyes, His voice speaking boldly in Your heart, His courage blazing bright for all to see.
Others will see Him too, and want what you have, no matter how much they try and deny Him in their own compromised lives, they cannot deny Him in Yours!
Our church, has embraced the cross, and is again preaching we become people of the cross.
Luke 12:For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? 50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! 51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
Burn bright for Jesus today!
Preach to someone! Tell them about His life, His love, His power, and demonstrate it with bold prayers for the miraculous, and watch Him show up and show out in Your life!
‘Father, if it is going to be, begin it with me. I’m not looking to this government, my family, even my church, for solutions to America’s problems any more, but I am looking to You, Creator of heaven and earth. Burn like a fire in me. Make me good! Give me places to speak Your word, people who need to see Your power, may my life blaze with love for You, Your passion and zeal in my very eyes. I ask this, knowing I am heard, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus, Amen’
