Christians, Pray For America–April 30, 2023
It was 160 years ago, as the turbulence of the Civil War was destroying American cities, separating family units, breaking the economy, and positioning church against church, President Abraham Lincoln issued the second of three proclamations for our country per request of the United States Senate.
The proclamation was for a Day Of National Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer, scheduled for April 30, 1863.Continue reading
America – Trust Jesus
The mid-term election is over. Men and women – candidates from every state – declared what they stood for and what they would do to improve our country…they all made promises.
We Americans, after looking for truth in those declarations made by the candidates, voted for who we thought would best serve our nation.
Will their political promises be kept? Track records reveal political promises made before elections have not always been kept after the election is finalized. Promises made…but unkept…indicate trust was broken. For any nation to succeed it must have trust in Someone…Someone who is fully truthful…
Christians Can Direct America’s Future – Vote
As Election 2022 comes to pass may we remember to praise His holy name, praise God for the nation He has given us to grow and abound in His presence. Praise Him for past and present leaders and for our 2023 leaders forthcoming for “he deposes kings and raises up others” as He chooses. Praise Him in advance for giving us wisdom to select our leaders just as He did Moses and the Eleven.
Americans, 64% of which proclaim to be Christian, can change the negative road our nation is traveling on in this next election.
America Acknowledges God’s Providence
Try as they might mainstream media and history books can not refute the truth: America acknowledges God’s providence. Documents referencing God’s providence are prevalent from the beginning stages of our emerging government and they are still available for review.
This post, the second of a nine-part series highlighting one topic from each chapter of The American Covenant – The Untold Story by Dr. Marshall Foster, is dedicated to God’s providence in America.
Many Founders such as the Pilgrims, those who did battle on American soil for freedom, and still others with occupations such as preachers, merchants, lawyers, and landowners who signed the Declaration Of Independence – were Christian. Of the 56 men who signed this historic document, nearly half (24) held seminary or Bible school degrees.
Clearly their instilled Christian faith affected the Founding Fathers as they referenced God in America’s birthing documents.Continue reading
Remember God’s History In America
I’ve been re-reading, “The American Covenant –The Untold Story”, by Dr. Marshall E. Foster. This post, the first of a nine-part series highlighting one topic from each chapter of Dr. Marshall’s book, is about America’s need to remember God’s relevance in our history.
A man of God dedicated to sharing the true history of America’s Biblical foundation Dr. Foster, who recently passed away, shares in his book passages from American documents and quotes from Founding Fathers. That information, along with in-depth history of the religious upbringing of many of our Founders, provides particulars regarding the Judeo-Christian foundation of America that history books have omitted from their pages.
America’s Founders, because of the dedication to our Creator, made covenants for this country with our Creator – yet our government and media ignore those specific covenants.Continue reading
America – Call To Him Who Holds The Power
Since the beauty of Jesus’ resurrection, Christianity continues to expand beyond the walls of Jerusalem. Today, one-third of the world declares themselves Christian. In America that number is higher. According to a 2020 census on religion by the Public Religious Research Institute 70% of Americans claim themselves to be Christian…a follower of Christ.
America, this statistic can redeem our country! God gives Christians all power in Jesus’ name so through Jesus we can call to Him for healing.Continue reading
7 Verses – God Is Working Even When We Don’t See It
God of the universe is a multitasker – He never stops working.
There are dominant works one can see that God does, like healing the sick or restoring relationships. We pray for positive outcomes to these unpleasant situations and feel blessed when we visually, emotionally, physically, or spiritually experience His response. But God also does works for us – everyday – works that we never bother to notice. Major works, works that sustain us and keep life easy.
Maybe we don’t notice these works because we didn’t specifically pray for them or, is it because we simply take them for granted?Continue reading
America – God Uses Leaders
Esteemed leaders come and go. They live their appointed time to accomplish a critical task then, by natural order, are gone. Some of the greatest leaders are called to forward a nation. Others are called to shepherd industries like science, education, business, or health. Their achievement may last; their being does not. Even religious leaders claim a last breath on earth (though One in particular regained His).
Once leaders depart, eventually, another leader emerges.
Though leaders differ in person and accomplishments they all have something in common:Continue reading
Christian America – Follow God’s Basic Instruction For Our Nation
Everything comes with instructions. If the goal is to achieve a satisfying outcome we follow instructions. Basic assembly instructions for a newly purchased gas grill or ceiling fan are found in booklet form in the box or are available online. To assure product success we read and follow instructions.
Americans know instructions are readily available online on how to play golf, drive a car, make lasagna, launder a dress, recover from a cold. Even basics on how to apply suntan lotion correctly and how to properly brush teeth are found in the cloud. Everything comes with instructions to follow in order to achieve a satisfying outcome.
So, Christian America, why aren’t we applying that same principle by following God’s instruction (also available in an online Bible) to heal our nation?Continue reading
