I woke up this morning concerned about so many things. My heart aches so much for the USA. I want to help her… I have dreams of leading her to safety… I’m positive I have some of the answers… but nobody seems to be listening. The whole land rises daily, like zombies walking on a dirt path at night straight over a deadly cliff. I feel like a crazy person standing with a roadway-sign out, last chance-exit here! And the whole country just keeps on walking in the same direction… with their arms forward and their eyes closed, oblivious to the SIGNS.
Please don’t take me as a gloom and doomer here… I don’t usually blog like this. My aim in this life is to INSPIRE tomorrow’s better world. I want to reach more and MORE people with REAL hope. Yeah, some would deem me narrow minded… they see guys like me as the obstacle in the expressway to PROGRESS. Political correctness and the modern obsession for TOLERANCE… it’s taken away my right to stand on the solid rock of my ancient truths.
Thank God I come out of a generation that was told the truth, WHILE THE TRUTH WAS STILL BEING TOLD. And while liberal historians work tirelessly at the devious task of re-telling American history, I will never be able to forsake the truth I already know and BELIEVE! America WAS founded on Christian values… she was established by men who LOVED Jesus unashamedly… and when she stood on that unchanging ROCK of her founding values, she stood tall.
Today, we claim to be a nation for everybody… and we have become a nation for nobody! We claim to be a nation of many gods… and we have offended the ONE GOD that birthed us and raised us well into young adulthood.
Look at us… all grown up now! We’ve become so BEAUTIFUL and INFLUENTIAL and INNOVATIVE and RICH. And thinking ourselves to be WISE, we have become FOOLS.
America has become the PRODIGAL NATION. We didn’t like having a FATHER who told us how to live. We felt as if GOD was HOLDING US BACK… he was slowing us down! We felt as if we knew better than GOD… we sniffed a better world just beyond the borders of his protective care… we claimed to be advanced far beyond his antiquated ideals!
Some time ago, the majority voice of this country went before FATHER… and they DEMANDED our inheritance! It’s taken them a few decades to GET FATHER OFF OUR BACKS… they asked FATHER to STOP CONTROLLING US… to stay out of our decisions… they sought for independence from the “OPPRESSIVE CONTROL” of an intolerant, old fashioned GOD.
Our nation wanted a sexual revolution and we got it! We wanted to SPEND our money however it FELT best… and WE DID IT! We wanted to live however we FELT like living… without having to FEEL BAD about LIVING WRONG.
And here we are… LIVING THE LIFE right? And just like the YOUNG MAN in the story below… we have NO IDEA where this road is going to take us!
11 To illustrate the point further, Jesus told them this story: “A man had two sons. 12 The younger son told his father, ‘I want my share of your estate now before you die.’ So his father agreed to divide his wealth between his sons.
13 “A few days later this younger son packed all his belongings and moved to a distant land, and there he wasted all his money in wild living. 14 About the time his money ran out, a great famine swept over the land, and he began to starve. 15 He persuaded a local farmer to hire him, and the man sent him into his fields to feed the pigs. 16 The young man became so hungry that even the pods he was feeding the pigs looked good to him. But no one gave him anything.
17 “When he finally came to his senses, he said to himself, ‘At home even the hired servants have food enough to spare, and here I am dying of hunger! 18 I will go home to my father and say, “Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, 19 and I am no longer worthy of being called your son. Please take me on as a hired servant.”‘
20 “So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him. 21 His son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son.[b]’
22 “But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet. 23 And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, 24 for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began.
Can one man make a difference? Can one church… or a few churches make a difference? Is there any real HOPE for us? While politicians claim NEW HOPE in creating a NEW AMERICA… are we going to FIND REAL HOPE if we continue in this liberal direction. Will we survive in a world of untold dangers without A FATHER… without A GOD?
Maybe I’m just a crazy person… but I WANT TO LIVE UNDER THE PROTECTION OF A LOVING FATHER… I WANT A FATHER WHO SHOWS ME HOW TO LIVE RIGHT… even if this means I WILL HAVE TO STOP DOING SOME OF THE THINGS I FIND PLEASURE IN DOING. Because real freedom is not found in being controlled by nothing… real freedom is found in being accountable to a LOVING FATHER.
I have seen into the future… and even though I feel way too insignificant these days, standing before this bottomless pit of national decay… even though I’m way too SILENT in a SEA OF DEADLY VOICES… my day will come! My support will gain momentum… people will join to my cause… and we will do what we can do to bring America to her senses!
I hope todays blog gives its readers a burden for America… that it will CREATE PRAYER. God bless you all… I am praying especially for all the highlanders out there… for the legends of tomorrow incubating in the caves. Your day is coming…
