Since I was child, I have been enjoying the privilege of freedom of worshiping my Lord Jesus.
The Bible should be upon the sacred pulpits of America and in our God-fearing homes, as well as believed, opened and read by our leaders in government.
Up above is God looking down upon us, and He is within the converted person’s heart urging us to remain free by moving from neutrality into the battle of action.
The very first priority is to the rehabilitation of those spiritual values which are basic to the American dream.
Jefferson observed, “The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time.”
Unfortunately, there are those who see no relationship between a nation’s success and Almighty God.
They should read Psalm 33:12-22 which says, “What joy for the nation whose God is the LORD, whose people he has chosen as his inheritance. The LORD looks down from heaven and sees the whole human race. From his throne he observes all who live on the earth. He made their hearts, so he understands everything they do.
“The best-equipped army cannot save a king, nor is its great strength enough to save a warrior. Don’t count on your warhorse (military strength) to give you victory. With all its strength, it cannot save you.
“But the LORD watches over those who fear him, those who rely on his unfailing love. (I say to you officers of the law and to you military men and women, that you need to believe these verses of Scripture. Will you please experience the love of the Almighty God and rely on His unfailing love. I thank you for your service to this country.)
“The LORD rescues them from death and keeps them alive in times of famine. We put our hope in the LORD. He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. Let your unfailing love surround us, LORD, for our hope is in you alone.”
Like the Psalmist, I chose years ago to place my entire hope in God. I will bow only to my King Jesus and not to some Saudi Arabian king, and I do salute the America Flag respectfully because of what it represents.
In 1962, I joined the Air Force to serve my country during the time of the Vietnam War. As in any war, some men and women will experience pain and death.
Others will be miraculously saved. The 60s was a time of “sit-in” professors and “beatniks” that opposed the war.
It was a time when in Vietnam a doctor in the operating room might cut off a mother’s boy’s arm and lean it up against the wall, or cut off a leg and say “Here, take that and burn it.”
It was a time in the states when our “Old Glory” was burned and spit upon. How indifferent some people can be to our military needs today or to the truths that we hold dear?
For a recent political leader to consider that our veterans should carry private health insurance to cover the injuries received during their active duty tours—because “They are a volunteer force of their choice” shows one’s ignorance.
Sir, our military men and women are the greatest in the world, and they are glad to sacrifice for freedom.
For anyone to say, “I guess I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans.” is one cold, stupid statement to give regarding our military men and women’s Unselfish dedication.
As a boy, I was taught that the stamp of God’s Hand, since the founding of this country, was heavy upon America.
Our early colonists and settlers fled religious persecution, and they came to this soil seeking freedom both in the Spiritual and political realms.
It was worth fighting and dying for. I praise God for these God and Country movements today, even with some noticeable faults, that they recognize the value of the word “price” as being part of keeping those freedoms that we have and rebuilding the freedoms that we have lost.
Are our children growing up to understand the “price” that the signers of our Declaration of Independence paid? Our founding fathers did not go for a big government establishment, nor did they have their hands stretched out for social benefits.
Let America seek again, with all its heart, the faith of our father’s from which have come our chief blessings.
We would all do well to take a fresh, intelligent look at the Cause of the strengths of our country, in spite of those politicians and citizens who believe that freedom is nothing more than the protected right to behave just as they please. I have lived long enough to see freedom misused and abused in this county.
This nation must repent and seek God until we begin to understand the deep wells of religious convictions, out of which all of our blessings have come and will come.
God is still willing to save this country. This is a spoonful of medicine that some of our political and religious leaders need to swallow to remove their insane thinking and stupid actions.
Have many Americans forgotten that we are lifted up or kept down by our relationship to God? Read your Bible to see how true this is of nations.
We can only sustain freedom when man knows both his affinity and accountability to God.
Man’s affinity gives him dignity; his accountability gives him conscience and a will to do better.
Ours is a choice of God’s blessings or God’s curses. Our government and the American people need to first seek spiritual freedom and use it responsibly.
Only God can reform and change the bad in people. Men themselves need changing the most from within. Only God can curb sin from within. That is what we really need.
In conclusion, can any country thrive and survive on neutrality, indifference, or even government control?
Can America be saved?
Yes, if we provide our country with wise and alert Christian people, a caring, creative people who believe sincerely that our blessings come from God and not from a totalitarian government that depends entirely on the tax-payer’s pocket.
We must remember to never adopt the practices of the forces of evil.
All of us will do right—if we practice the lifestyle of Jesus and His truths.
The final battle will be fought in the arena of Spiritual realities.
As the Armageddon approaches, I pray that Americans will be found diligent, fighting on the side of a just and merciful God and will always believe in acting responsibly and caringly and unselfishly toward others.
