God can heal our country


But it is our responsibility to seek Him out for our forgiveness and for our salvation. We have been pulling away from Him and pushing Him away from us for too long. We need to get back to Him and get into His Word before we truly fall into anarchy in this world.

Turn back to God and humble yourselves before the world completely falls into anarchy.

What is your foundation?


Do you have a real foundation? In our world today many people seem to be devoid of a foundation. They seem to have no concept of even needing a foundation to base their lives and their beliefs on. Yet, America was founded upon Christian principles. Granted many of those were twisted out of context to legalize all kinds of wrongs such as slavery and prostitution and murder and rape. When I said “legalize” I don’t mean that these wrongs were legal in the eyes of the law but they used principles found in God’s Word to either justify what they were doing or to make themselves feel better about something that they knew was wrong in God’s eyes.

The foundation of our principles is based on God’s Law but it is also based on our conscience which God gave to us by way of reading and hearing His Word preached. Whether it was done by a preacher in a church or by your parents or your grandparents it really doesn’t matter. As long as you have heard the Truth from God’s Word then your conscience will let you know when you are doing something which God does not approve of.

We are made in the image of God and have been since the beginning in the Garden of Eden. That has not changed. Man is the only part of God’s creation which is formed from the clay. To form something you have to put your hands in it and make it into a shape that you approve of. Every other creation on Earth was called forth by the Word of God.Mankind was formed from the clay by God’s hands. Can you understand what that means?

When a potter or a sculptor takes a lump of clay or a piece of stone and makes something beautiful out of it they call themselves forming their vision of what is already there. They can see in their mind the man or woman or some other shape and then they either remove the stone or wood from around their vision. A potter looks at the clay and sees what it can be when he lays his hands on it. A master violin player can take a dusty old violin and tune it and make it sound like it came from heaven. God looked at the clay and saw us and all of the good that we could be. Unfortunately He also saw the bad and evil that mankind would be as well.

The only way that we can be what God saw before or during His formation of man is by His grace bringing us to conviction so that we know that we need Jesus in order to be the people which God saw. We need Him and His righteousness in our hearts so that we will live and be more like Jesus than ourselves. Adam was created perfect and sinless and so was Eve until they allowed Satan to twist the words which God has said. They were duped into thinking that they could become more like God. Except in doing so they disobeyed God’s command and in doing so they became more like Satan himself.

Our foundation has to be laid on the rock of salvation through Jesus and our belief in Him as our Savior. If we don’t start our true life off on that foundation by being forgiven and sanctified by the blood of Jesus then we are fooling ourselves and we are wasting out lives. God knows each of us far better than we know ourselves and He knows how far we will go before He needs to bring us to the point where we recognize our Savior and Lord as Jesus the Christ. I pray that many of you who read this will take it to heart and use it so that someone may come to know Jesus as their Savior. If you do not know Him then please seek Him out as your Savior.


Colossians 1:23
if indeed you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope of the gospel you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.

Jesus is also the foundation of our faith.

disturbing news


I read an article today which unnerved me. According to the Barna group there are an increasing number of people, including many who claim to be Christians, who don’t believe in absolute morality which is taught in God’s Word. I know that many people don’t like what is taught from the Bible or even how it is taught. But when a Christian says that they don’t believe in absolute Truth or Morality it is the same as saying that they don’t believe what God says in the Bible. If you are questioning God or His rules about morality or truth or anything else in God’s Word then you are questioning the validity…the Truth of what God says. If that is how you feel about God then why do you go to church? God is our Creator and the Creator of everything. He cannot lie, so why would you question anything in His Word? If you don’t believe in Him that is your prerogative and if you don’t believe in Him then His Word is suspect too I suppose.

But…what if you are wrong?

God has brought the nation of Israel back to its homeland after nearly two thousand years with their language intact. This is a miracle in itself. All of the prophecies in the Bible have come to pass except for the return of Jesus and that will happen soon. Likely much sooner than many people think.

Is God’s Word, the Bible, true and trustworthy? If it isn’t we might as well be using a book about a wizard or a dragon as our “guide for life”. God and His Word is true and it is absolutely Truth and absolute about the way we should live. The laws of most civilized countries have their foundation in His Word and the laws found there so if we throw the Bible away as untrustworthy then all of the laws should be nullified as well. Then what kind of moral compass will we live by? I don’t think I would want to live in a world like that.

Consider this: God Word is Truth and it is completely true. Jesus died for your sins and everyone else’s sins in the world. Your salvation only depends upon your conviction about being a sinner and knowing that you need Jesus and your belief in Him as your Savior has to be complete and not “maybe so”. One day Jesus will send His angels to gather the church, all believers, to be with Him in Heaven. If you are not part of that gathering and you see it happen, it will prove that the Bible is true and you just missed out on being taken to Heaven before all hell breaks loose on Earth.

God’s Word is True and absolute.
