The prophetic destiny of "an holy nation"
"The time has come for a new American emancipation-a great national drive to tear down economic barriers and liberate the spirit of enterprise in the most distressed areas of our country. My friends, together we can do this, and do it we must, so help me God...If not us, who? And if not now, when? It must be done by all of us going forward..." These were the words of President Ronald Reagan in his Second Inaugural Address, on Monday, January 21, 1985. The election of 1984 was affirmation that Reagan's economic policies and his bully pro-American, pro-moral agenda was working. He was reversing the policies of the failed socialist agenda of Jimmy Carter, which left the nation in an economic and foreign policy abyss.
The 2010 election was also a referendum on a socialist agenda--a referendum that rejected outright and with force the failing policies of the counter-American. Yet, these soldiers of socialism, who were kicked out of office for their dastardly deeds that left our nation economically bankrupt, came back and worked more of their evil in a lame duck session. Some of those who were re-elected surely did not get the message. We as a nation still have leadership that wishes to remake America into a socialist, perhaps even communist, so-called democracy. More czars, more power grabs, more spending, more laws that are made but never read, more freedoms taken away, more immorality through laws and regulations.
In the past, Americans have always rebounded by standing against such tyranny, such evil. One of the problems now is that whoever we elect cannot be trusted, even those who call themselves Christians. It is time, as Reagan so eloquently said, that the move away from this godless society must be done by all of us going forward. You see, the battle really isn't about socialism or communism or tyranny. Those are just results of the battle. The battle is over the souls of citizens. I maintain that if Christians in this nation were actually moving in the spiritual gifts as prescribed specifically by the Holy Scriptures, this nation would be righted, even as end times prophecy moves rapidly forward.
The Apostle Peter prophesied over you that you might step into your destiny. 1 Peter 2:9 says, "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar (God's own) people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light." Verse 12 says, "Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation." You see, we are a holy nation--we as Christians--and we need to take this seriously and as Paul wrote in Romans 12:21, "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." If not us, who? If not now, when?
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
