In this age of government dependence, we have lost our national identity. It is to Washington we look, not our creator. The progressive onslaught has invaded every area of life. We no longer recognise that we even have a creator, thanks to the false teachings of evolution our children are exposed to early in their development. Television, movies and other media continue the mantra; God(and His Law) is dead.
Because God is attacked from the very begining, we learn early that our rights and liberties are granted not from our creator, but from our government. Have you ever considered why this matters? Why did the founders of our country need to have a Declaration of Independence? If our freedoms, rights and liberties were granted by the government and not God, we could not have established a new nation.
In whom will we put our trust? In a man, in a group, in a government? If we are not willing to trust the Lord, how shall we stand? For too long now those who say they trust God have remained silent. For too long we have called ourselves after His name, but have been unwilling to take a stand. Sinful conduct is allowed. We blaspheme His name, we murder the innocent, we are unfaithful, and we are unrepentent. We now try to grasp our liberties as a child tries to grasp a vapor. We are surprised when our leaders now ignore us. We did not speak up before, why would they listen now. Go back to sleep, now that we have removed the One who grants our rights, the One who died that we might have liberty. Now that we have banned His due honor, prayer and devotion, why arise now? The government will not give back that which it has taken. You must now appeal to the Lord of Lords and give Him the proper place in your life. Or go back to sleep.
And when the LORD sent you out from Kadesh Barnea, he said, "Go up and take possession of the land I have given you." But you rebelled against the command of the LORD your God. You did not trust him or obey him. -Deuteronomy 9:23
