Christian Americans – 7 Verses Encouraging Boldness For Christ

The Christian voice in America, over the years, has turned into a whisper. It’s happening in two ways:

  1. Unbelievers are shouting louder than believers for their “constitutional right” to remove God from our beautiful country.
  2. Believers remain quiet.

The current trend of keeping God out of all things American, the unbeliever’s view of separation of church and state, is not the plan our founders had when they birthed America. Of the 56 signers the Declaration of Independence, nearly half (24) held seminary or Bible school degrees. Our leaders had full understanding of the the need for God in America. Back in the day, they shouted those beliefs through America’s founding documents.

American Christians – Claim Your Identity

Last week I posted the need for American Christians to stop remaining quiet, to stop allowing elected officials to push America deeper into a pit of immorality. American Christians must understand the impact of remaining neutral. Remain neutral – being neither hot nor cold – is basically an affront to God.

Remaining neutral on topics that affect the stability of Christian freedoms and morals in America, for generations to come, offers no hope for a stable righteous America. If we remain neutral the bad guys win because no-one will be standing firm on God’s word. Neutrality never helps the victim, it enables the oppressor.

God is not neutral, He will not stand with those who do not claim Him.

American Christians – Get Out Of The Pit!

Our country cannot save itself – only Jesus the Christ can save us. As we continue to lift ourselves higher, believing we control destiny, living in a my body my choice world, we are falling deeper – quicker – into an unfathomable pit of darkness.

Americans have removed God from classrooms, from churches, from business, diner tables, sports events, youth groups, science, Twitter, FaceBook and from our government. The very Judeo-Christian based America, which men like William Bradford, James Madison, George Washington, Noah Webster, and Robert C. Winthrop labored for, is being trampled on under the disguise of “freedom.”

Creation Happened Because God Exists

Creation is from the great I AM. His existence is before the beginning. I AM is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient forever.

Look around. Think logically. The environment, the galaxies … all too perfect in function and formation to be created by the mishap of an explosion. The earth in its glory of gravity and atmospheric conditions, with its tilt, rotates on its axis while revolving around the sun. Change its tilt or rotation, move closer to the sun or further away, and the earth’s atmospheric conditions, the seasons, darkness and light times, could force earth to be unrecognizable.

Such perfect precision can only come from One who is beyond our understanding of perfect and precise.

Heaven or Hell, You Are One Breath Away

I am a sinner – I sin in thought, word, and deed. Over and over, everyday, that is my nature, that is who I am.

On my own I will never enter heaven’s gate. It is only through Him, Jesus, who suffered and died for sin, that all are saved.

Jesus came once. He shared God’s love with those around Him. His perfect deeds and instructions are recorded for all mankind to receive His blessing of eternal life. Our opportunity to partake in salvation from the savior of the world is available for the asking.

Jesus prepared the way for us; by choice we are one breath away from eternal life or eternal damnation.

God Created Man – God Created Woman

How perfect that God created two sexes: man and woman. In His perfectness He created two separate yet complimentary beings of each other. Separate, yet one sex can not survive without the other sex; they belong together.

Genesis 1:27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

TRUST GOD’S TIMING

It’s common in society to want things now. We live in the present, consumed by current events, with no idea why the present is what it is, or, what comes next. This live-for-today practice leads to quick decision making to achieve immediate change. It seems mankind wears blinders, unable to take in all that goes on around us and why. But not God – He sees it all.

His plan for history is laid out, sort of like stepping stones. If we simply place all trust in Him and follow the stones, onestep at a time, we have the to ability reach the goodness He planned for us.

It’s about trusting God’s timing.

Pray Over Your Bad Day – 5 Bible Verses

Bad days happen to all of us. They are unavoidable. They quite often contain situations beyond our control. It’s what believers do on bad days (actually we are to do it everyday), that sets us apart from the world. We acknowledge our smallness.

We proclaim God is in control and we live on earth, not in heaven.

To think one has a choice in all of life’s situations is false. Heartache, disease, and unemployment can appear out of nowhere. One may leave home with their head high and a smile on their face, but return feeling the world is against them.

The good news: believers have power over unexpected and unwanted days.

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.
