There's a saying that I use often that will sum up the message I want to relay. I tell people that if a man curses me out or metaphorically stabs me in the back and in turn I do the same as he, then that makes me as sorry as he is or just as he is.
I realized yesterday that the battle we fight is not with flesh and blood. The battle is a Satanic one. We, as a nation have a spiritual problem. Because we have turned our back on God. That's not to say that every person that lives here is guilty. But the blessings that use to be ours are no longer here because, as a nation, we have missed the mark. Our mindset and thoughts are cankered and rotten to the core with a desire to follow our own desires rather than seeking the mindset of God the Father and His son Jesus Christ.
The Bible says the (YE ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH: BUT IF THE SALT HATH LOST ITS SAVOR , WHEREWITH SHALL IT BE SALTED? IT IS HE THENCEFORTH GOOD FOR NOTHING, BUT TO BE CAST OUT, AND TO BE TRODDEN UNDER THE FOOT OF MEN.(MATTHEW 5:13).
Although all of our fore fathers we not necessarily believers in what was just said this country was founded on the principles laid out in the Word of God. The salt of His word was sprinkled across the nation and it flavored the whole nation until it transformed, we as a people, to a place of prominence in this world. We were admired by every nation. It was so strong that even people that did not believe in Jesus Christ still prayed in His name.
Matthew was written to the Jewish Nation. But that concept works for the whole world.
I realize that I do not have all the answers for our nation. I know that on the political field I am a no body and that within myself I am very weak. There is therefore one thing I can do. I can, as a nobody seek through prayer a Man that can change the course of a nation. When enough nobodies began to pray and seek His face then we will be a powerful nation again.
My weapon is not like their weapons but has a power that transforms the thought of men
