Greetings My Friends;
The message today concerns our country and Christians. We, at least for now have a really diluted version of Thanksgiving, and a country that has really gone astray.
This country and Thanksgiving were founded on the Bible. The people and the government followed what it taught. It was the basis for our lives. It was a country blessed by God. No other country was so blessed, even presidents put God first, and had days of national prayer and thanksgiving.
After about 200 years I guess people started getting tired of being blessed. They started to stray from what made us great. So-called progress and education reached a point, where a lot of people figured they didn't need God anymore.
As we kept God out of our lives, we started to go downhill. As this was happening, where did all the Christians go? How did we let our country abandon God. He did not abandon us, we abandoned Him.
The people started to follow the ways of a fallen, broken world, and the government was happy to go along with it. Why? Because we elected the government and put in many ungodly people. Everything this country was, has evaporated. Abortion, gay marriage, and countless other violations of the Bible, have and continue to occur.
We as Christians can take things back. Starting with educating ourselves about who to vote for. The Internet has made that much easier. Vote for good Christian candidates. Send letters to our representatives, reminding them why they were elected.
If we as Christians made noise like the people who support things like abortion and gay marriage, we could change the laws and the government. The Bible tells us the way to get to heaven. One way, and that is through Jesus Christ. Don't believe some self proclaimed Christian politician who says there are many ways to get to heaven.
Feel helpless? Don't. Our God can overcome anything. Pray for better candidates to run for office. Do your homework before you vote. Vote your conscience not just for a particular political party. Stand up and be heard. 1 million is accumulated one at a time, so your one vote counts, use it.
If you don't like the idea of Thanksgiving being turned into a shopping day, don't shop. There are many ways we can use our votes and our dollars. We are sheep only to and for the Lord. In the world we are children of God, and we must act like it.
Have a really blessed Thanksgiving. Thank the Lord for everything in your life, and pray for our country. Every day should be a day of thanksgiving and prayer.
God Bless You And Remember
Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation;
"Oh God in Heaven, I believe with all of my heart that Jesus has been raised from the dead. I receive Your Word, and I repent of sin. I renounce the past. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I receive my forgiveness. I receive the new birth, cleansed and washed in the Word and in the precious blood of Jesus. Fill me with Your Spirit, in Jesus name. Amen"
