Happy Birthday USA!

The Fourth of July (a/k/a Independence Day) is a federal holiday in the United States celebrating the birth of American independence in 1776, when 13 colonies came together to form the USA. Leaders adopted the Declaration of Independence and since then, festivities such as fireworks, parades, family gatherings and concerts are held to celebrate the holiday.

Our nation is unique in that it is founded upon biblical principles. Our Founding Fathers acknowledged God as Creator and they understood that the role of government is to protect the inalienable rights given by God – Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. Christian, what has happened? Have we voted our Christian values? The modern leaders we have voted into office don't understand God’s role in government. We are to share the Good News about Jesus but soon we won’t have the religious freedom to do so. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and protection if we tell Him He’s no longer welcome here? Yes, God is in control, but because He gave us freedom of choice, He will honor our choices. If we ask Him to leave, He will. And we are.

1Peter 2:15-16 – “For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 16 As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.” Psalms 119:30-32 – “I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me. 31 I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame. 32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.” Luke 4:18-19 – “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” Psalms 119:45-47 – “And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts. 46 I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed. 47 And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.”

The standard for daily life is the Word of God. Period. Let's protect the America we love by voting biblically and serving The Almighty. Input = output. We have two natures – physical/earthly and spiritual/Godly. Whichever nature we feed the most controls us. Will we as a nation continue in Godless, moral decline or will we put on the armour of God and be His soldiers, marching and fighting in this spiritual war?
