We need to pray for God’s protection and intervention and we need to exercise faith in Jesus Christ so that the truth can be made known to us, thus no longer willfully practicing sin and no longer be blinded by Satan’s evil influences and deceptions! The Bible spells everything out for us clearly and in great detail. There would be true divine enlightenment and we would gain great knowledge and wisdom of the truth if we would just take the time to turn to the Bible. With faith in the scriptures God would open our eyes and we would understand that these are not the words of a mere man but these are truly the Words of the living Almighty God! The best news and the greatest hope that we can possibly have is the gospel that saves. Unfortunately, because of our ignorance we would rather take it out of our schools, our work, the constitution, the world and our lives.

Honoring God and respect for Him, His creation, and His Holy Word is the only way we will ever find true freedom. The blood of Jesus Christ that was shed for mankind is enough to heal the world. It is not too late to repent and turn our hearts to Christ. We can bring healing and life to this land that we love if we will humble ourselves before God almighty. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says: “…if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

We need to open our hearts to Him and we will see how good God really is. We must stop taking Him out of everything because it is He who wants nothing but the best for us and to help us dearly. He is our only solid foundation of keeping our country and our world secure. Remember, we as God’s children have forsaken Him in many ways of blocking out His existence. God on the other hand loves us all as He always has and as He always will. He has given us free will and He pleads with us to use our God-given free will wisely. We must return to prayer and put our faith in Jesus Christ so that He can renew our hearts and minds, thus removing sin from this world. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah? Many of us have closed our hearts to what is right in order to live for our own self-absorbed ways, false traditions and evil lustful desires.

God did not send His Son Jesus into the world to condemn us, but He sent Him into the world in order to save us. John 3:17 says: “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” God wants us to have hope and experience His fullness, His glory and all of His blessings. Most importantly He wants to save us from our sins and understand the importance and the miracle blessing of everlasting life, because He knows how terrible hell is and He does not wish any of His children to perish in eternal damnation.

Sadly, we shut Him out and we do not allow ourselves the chance to experience His love and grace. We are only hurting and deceiving ourselves by not giving Jesus Christ an opportunity to come into our lives. Do not be blind to the existence of God, rather be willing to search Him out for yourselves through biblical scripture. There is NOTHING more worth our while and NOTHING more important and NOTHING more precious than God Himself. We need to love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul and with all our mind and trust Him with every aspect of our lives.

Having genuine faith in Jesus Christ—trusting Him with every aspect of your life, being engaged in His Will and letting Him redeem you, will begin to awaken you spiritually and transform you into His likeness (holiness). I pray that we recognize the need for a spiritual awakening so that we can understand the need for redemption and salvation that is only in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. A spiritual awakening will allow the Holy Spirit to begin to change us into the likeness of God, which will enable us to be obedient to Him, which in turn will bring hope, salvation and a very healthy society.

Willingly receive Christ in your life and let Him redeem you. Genuinely repent of your sins, and by the grace of God He will begin His supernatural transformation in your life. Have faith in Him and trust Him that He will change you into the person that He has always wanted you to be and lead you in the life that He has planned for you, so that you can do your part in his plan of redemption and help further His Kingdom, which in turn will also make it a much better world to live in.

One day we must all face physical death so why face eternal damnation (hell) when we have the opportunity to accept God’s free gift of redemption and receive eternal life? Being redeemed will turn us and free us from our sinful ways that we are held bondage to, thus making the world a better place to live in and we will receive and experience a joyous and blissful everlasting life with our Lord and Savior.

The value of having God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ in our lives is priceless! It is worth much more than any earthly treasure! When will we come to realize that we are in need of the Lord in our lives? The scriptures state that we cannot make it without Him, both physically and eternally. Proverbs 8:35 says: “For whoever finds me finds life, and obtains favor from the LORD.” Only through Christ we can find hope, change the error of our ways and receive salvation. When will we learn not to trust in our own self righteous ways, beliefs, opinions and understanding and come to trust in and live by the Word of God (the Bible)?! We need to stop being our own God and trust in Christ or we will be headed for disaster. The one most important and biggest thing in the world is FAITH! You will be surprised what faith in Jesus Christ and faith in the Word of God can and will do in your life and you will be more than grateful to God for opening your eyes and enlightening you in the truth.
