America has been fingerprinted, indicted, and booked as a nation in distress. All one has to do is look around and see this country desperately needs God. Among many indictments, the political divide is currently one of the top charges. Instead of assaulting each other, we should be attacking the culprit who is stirring up all this division. And that my friend, is Satan; he is the puppet master, manipulating the strings that control our actions. America does not have a Democratic or Republican problem; it has a spiritual problem.
As a blogger, I hear from Christian readers who represent both political parties. That is to be expected and is healthy since we, at the moment, live in a democracy. However, the severe divide we face now is threatening our nation; it has moved from a difference of opinion to something sinister and dangerous. Satan is going for an irreparable split.
The Church (the body of Christ) let America down when she relegated her authority to man. She is the salt and the light of the world (see Matthew 5:13-16). But because of her passivity, the Church is witnessing harsh repercussions from her silence.
The Church is the adult in the room.
As far as I’m concern, there is no such thing as separation of Church and state. Look for chaos when there is no divine guidance; expect turmoil when moving about in the kingdom of darkness without light. Of course, we have freedom of religion in this country, but that does not exclude God from governmental practices.
Our diversity is our strength.
God’s people come from many walks of life—wearing many assorted cultural and racial hats. Our problem is, we think one hat fits all. God knew what He was doing when He made us all different. Just think about it: The more diverse His people are, the more territory they can reach for Christ. Therefore, our diversity is our strength if the Kingdom of God is our priority.
America needs a Church bailout!
By faith, the Church needs to rescue America from this downward trajectory. But before she can do that, she must repent and submit her will over to the Holy Spirit’s will. She must pray for the strength not to take the enemy’s bait to weaken this nation. She must pray for discernment so she can readily recognize the enemy’s many cunning disguises and plans. She must pray that the veil of deception is removed from her eyes.
America has been fingerprinted and brought up on charges; however, by the grace of God, through His Church, this nation can be set free.
