“For then you will be seen as innocent, faultless, and pure children of God, even though you live in the midst of a brutal and perverse culture. For you will appear among them as shining lights in the universe, offering them the words of eternal life. I haven’t labored among you for nothing, for your lives are the fruit of my ministry and will be my glorious boast at the unveiling of Christ!”
Philippians 2:15-16 TPT
My daughter and I have been reading “What Were They Thinking?” By Carol Sewell as a part of her American History class,
And I have been enlightened to say the least.
The very least.
My, how we’ve fallen from the Foundations of our Forefathers as a nation.
But as the Spirit began to minister to my heart yesterday, I was schooled by Him, on the separation between church and state,
And what it’s not.
Creation itself reveals the Glory of God.
Whether the world views embrace and declare it, you cannot separate the things of God from this earth.
It all belongs to Him.
It was made by Him,
and our founding Fathers had that revelation.
They realized that in order to live in a free and quiet nation, it had to be ruled or, run, by the Principals in God’s Word.
As they looked to Him as Providence, they were successful-
and displayed His character more and more.
The United States was in essence a reflection of what they saw in God’s Word.
The whole basis of Fighting for Freedom was for them to be able to Worship the Living God.
The more they worshipped, the more they reflected the Wisdom and character of God.
The church was not only, not separated from the state, but was the major influence on which the states lived daily life.
They looked to the church, who looked to God, for direction.
Sadly, the church has become so deceived and side tracked by comparing itself within itself, that we aren’t looking to Providence by God, but competing with man made infrastructure.
The enemy has created a diversion, called division.
And it’s something to me, how as we look and see the United States more divided than its ever been,
that if we take this separation from church and state mentality and apply it,
We see how division in the church has been a direct influence once again on this nation.
What you focus on is what you become.
What you Worship you will reflect.
When we worship self, to the point of thinking we are to be separate from influencing the world around us,
We reflect it, and never has there been a time in which selfishness in this earth has ran rampant.
The Good News.
Jesus is Always THE Good News.
He is the Answer.
He is the Unifier.
The above scripture refers to looking at Him.
His example, and then,
We will be seen as innocent and faultless.
We will reflect Humility Himself, and,
Humility proceeds honor.
I believe God wants to turn this whole thing around.
I believe God is not willing that any should perish.
I believe that if the church, His Body on this earth will turn to Him,
We will once again reflect His Glory and be the influence in the United States and this world- unto the Glory of God.
The enemy has tried to create a diversion.
But it STOPS HERE.
Today, by the Truth.
We don’t look to the right, or the left,
We, dear Brothers and Sisters Look UP, to our Providence.
We again, Worship Him, and Him Alone.
