“If our God, whom we honor, can save us from a blazing furnace and from your power, he will, Your Majesty. But if he doesn’t, you should know, Your Majesty, we’ll never honor your gods or worship the gold statue that you set up.” Daniel 3:17-18
Let this New Year be a year whereby all believers everywhere honor God and His Word. We must resist men who threaten to seize control over our lives and who are progressively replacing the God in whom we worship, with false gods and ideologies increasingly infesting our sacred institutions.
We will never bow to a false president, nor accept fraudulent elections. We will not honor any decrees which dishonors God or the sanctity of life. We will never worship government or live by every word from the mouth of Washington DC.
We refuse to listen to fakers and thieves, whether in Church or government.
So, even if our God delays, our most sincere prayers and longing for a New Heaven and a New Earth, we’ll never honor false gods, or fake news broadcasts, nor will we honor their czar-gods, or worship “the golden programing” they continue to force us to watch.
Why? Because the Church will be too busy caring for the lost and reaching them in the four corners of this darkening world.
Rise up Oh Bride of Christ, your finest hour has dawned this New Year’s Day and our window of opportunity to exploit the last rays of freedom’s daylight is closing. Otherwise the day of our persecution and times of trouble spoken about in the Scriptures will soon provide the contrast which should have been there all along.
Our listening to glorious Sunday morning messages, talk radio; Christian-branding and marketing of worldly delights has forfeited the grace and culture that could have been ours. We’ve lost our Nation not because of our adherence to our Christianity, but because we did not preach it’s redemptive messages outside of our pretty Church buildings and corporate structures.
We’re loosing our Nation not because we’ve not read enough Christian authors, or followed each crazed Christian fad, but rather because we chose passivity and embellished ourselves on “Turkish Delights” of Worldliness, and gazed too long at the bewitchment of the Queen of Goodies and new Technologies. (For which, I too am guilty).
Because we used our freedom to form and fashion false gods of tolerance, gods of laughs and giggles; thumbs up and “Likes” to our sins and compromises. So we branded our Golden Calf with the name “Yahweh” to ease our guilty consciences and silence the voice of God’s whispering Holy Spirit of repentance.
Our Nation’s ruin is not our failed politics, or lack of political might, but rather our refusal to preach the Gospel of a better order, and of an eternal and expanding Kingdom. A Kingdom led by the King of kings, Lord of lords and the Presidents of presidents, that is Jesus Christ, The Righteousness of God!
But there is still Hope. And, the God of all hopes dwells within you. The time is NOW to declare the Hope which is inside of you. For how can it be hope unless you speak it out to the hopeless and the hope-lost?
Put down the false gods of our age, apnd thus brighten the future of America. Our freedom was won by people whose God is the Lord of Life and Freedom.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed! John 8:36
