AMERICA – Jesus Is God’s Gift

Jesus Christ did not come into the world to condemn. Jesus came as a gift, a precious gift desiring to be given to all who will receive Him.

Revelation 3:20  Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

Picture a friend standing just outside your door holding a beautifully wrapped large box! Wouldn’t you be eager to invite him in and receive his gift?

Now picture Jesus, desiring to be your best friend, offering you a more beautiful gift, one that will last a lifetime!

Give Thanks This Thanksgiving

In the story of Jesus feeding 5,000 men (plus uncounted women and children), Jesus, savior of the world, was thankful to God before the distribution and eating of the five small barley loaves and two small fish. Scripture says He simply “gave thanks.”

This Feeding of the 5,000, is the only miracle recorded in all four of the gospels (Matthew 14-Matthew 14:13-21; Mark 6-Mark 6:31-44; Luke 9-Luke 9:12-17; John 6-John 6:1-14).

This story offers six interesting points:

AMERICA – God Gives Blessings In Disguise

Christians–we believe in God’s blessings. Early Christians believed, Christians in this age believe, and true future Christians will believe. Unbelievers have their doubts about blessings. They may even ask, “Why believe in blessings?”

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Christians believe in God’s blessings because we believe in God’s word. His word is divine, supreme; it reigns above all, is vast and true. The Bible gives knowledge of God. His word changes lives from ordinary to blessed.

Sometimes, I go to the Bible for specific answers to questions I have right now. I usually find my blessing when God shows me insight. Then there are times I stumble upon a particular verse. A verse I wasn’t searching for, but happened to read and find understanding to separate situation I may be confused about. Biblical insight is a blessing.

AMERICA – Pray The Lord’s Prayer

If you are at a loss for words when coming before God for yourself, your family, job, government, or church (whatever your need may be), try praying the prayer Jesus taught His disciples.

Before sharing His example of prayer, what we now call The Lord’s Prayer, Jesus first explained to His followers the importance of praying in a manner that is pleasing to God.

Matthew 6:5-13 And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.

Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

AMERICA – God Is Loves! (Yes, His Love Is Plural)

In America we use the word love in a wide array of situations. Love. Love is used to describe feelings for people, places, and things. After all, America, don’t we love baseball, country, and apple pie?

However in the Bible, love is usually an action as found in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, where “Love is patient, love is kind.” But sadly, love is used so overwhelmingly for feelings on random matters in society, most have come to deprive themselves of the true meaning of love. Love is a deep, endless, all intense commitment shown that does not require reciprocation from the receiver.

AMERICA – Be Blessed

The Bible offers many verses telling us how/who the LORD blesses. America, why are we not listening to Him? I want to be blessed. I want my country to be blessed. Don’t you as a nation want blessings as well…to be prosperous, at peace, in love with our fellow man, and most importantly forgiven?

Blessings from God are receivable, America. Overwhelming blessings to enable us to stay strong and prosper. But blessings only occur if we delight not in ourselves, not in vain might, and definitely not in false gods. Blessings come from following the law of LORD.

Psalm 1:1-3 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.

AMERICA – Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, A Prophetic Word For Our Nation – Part One Of Two

In Cahn’s message he shares America’s history on the importance of standing with God, then goes on to state how we have now driven God away: “We pass down rulings from Washington D.C., that war against the eternal laws of heaven, on human life, human nature, gender, and marriage.”

AMERICA – Praise The LORD!

God, the provider of all things, He alone is worthy to be praised!

Isaiah 12:4-6 In that day you will say: “Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted. Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world. Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.”

Our creator and redeemer, God is glorious.

It was Jesus who proclaimed, as He entered Jerusalem the week before His crucifixion, if mankind doesn’t shout His praises then earth itself will:
