Memorial Day… our time for remembrance, and our time to pray for our nation!!!


There are way too many Americans today, who because they known no other life, and have reaped the benefits and blessings which they have inherited from our forefathers, they have long forgotten the high cost of this liberty that they so have taken for granted; and they have forsaken the God of Heaven, who is the One who has blessed us, prospered us, and has protected our nation for all these many years.

This is a BIG mistake, folks, because for sure, as the Bible says God will not be mocked, for we shall reap what we have sown,and for sure our sin shall find us out!

Let us remember that God in heaven is a covenant keeping God, and our relationship, our responsibilities, in order that we may maintain that relationship with Him, and keep our blessings, are all spelled out for us in the covenant, which covenant we can read in the Holy Bible.

To the extent our nation today has disrespected both the Bible, and the God of the Bible, we have forsaken that covenant, and therefore we can expect that God will make an adjustment soon; not to destroy us, mind you, but to bring us to repentance and to cause us to once again turn our hearts back again towards our Creator.

Let us watch and pray for our nation on this Memorial Day; let us intercede and do spiritual battle against the onslaught of evil that has overtaken our nation, and is today ruling from the highest seats of power, within our land; that is seeking, today, to undermine our sovereignty, our liberty, and our Constitution.

While we are praying, least we become proud ourselves, let us also each remember the grace whereby we have been saved; and that except for God’s mercy and love in our lives, there would be many of us who would be doing the very same dumb things that so many today, among our politicians and among others of those who are lost, are doing.

They have yet to meet, or have an encounter with Jesus; and so let us also pray for them, as well, that they too would have the same opportunity that was afforded us, that they not depart this world without their Savior… for truly, as the Bible says, “God is not willing that ANY should perish!”

For truly there is only ONE name under heaven whereby man may be saved, and that is through the Name of Jesus Christ!

Wake up America, all of you who are called by His Name, who call yourselves Christians; for the weight of responsibility for our nation’s future falls, not to the unbeliever, but it falls to our shoulders; and it is for us to make the difference… and not to the many who speak often about God, when it serves their purpose, but who have shown by their actions, their fruit, and their words that their hearts are far from Him; who even though they may have a form of religion, but nevertheless they have denied the POWER of the Holy Spirit… and among these are many who call themselves Christian!

Make no mistake, but that this job for which the Church has been destined to perform in the earth will require the supernatural Power that comes ONLY from the Holy Spirit, who is our Guide and our Paraclete; our Comforter, and our Teacher… the one whom Jesus said He would send forth to lead us and guide us into ALL TRUTH!

On this Memorial Day let us remember the cost that our liberty required, of men and women who have died to preserve it and to defend it; let us also remember on this Memorial Day that it is our responsibility, and not that of our politicians, to direct the course of our nation’s future, and that direction will come as we humble ourselves, fall to our knees, turn from our wicked ways, repent, and begin to seek God’s face; for then and only then, does the Bible promise us (in 2 Chronicles 7:14) that the God of heaven will hear our prayers, and will heal our land. Selah.

Shalom,
