Summary: We need to young peopleto make a stnd. We as pastors, Youth pastors, Sunday School teacher, Mon & dads to teach our children the importance of making a stand. To change the wrong & make it right.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE:
I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN AMERICA.
WE NEED A NEW DEDICATION AMOUNG THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE BELIEVING CHURCH.
AFTER ALL WE ARE BOUGHT WITH A PRICE. THAT PRICE WAS THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST UPON CALVARY.
1 Corinthians 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
WE OWE A DEBT. I BELIEVE WE NEED TO GET COMMITTED TO OUR BIBLE PRICIPLES, & OUR CHRISTAIN DUTY.
AMERICA HAS A CHRISTAIN HERITAGE. WE WERE FOUNDED ON BIBLE PRINCIPALS. (JUST READ THE OLD TESTATMENT)
I BELIEVE THERE IS HOPE FOR AMERICA.
IF WE FOLLOW
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
IT MUST START WITH US
Judges 2:10 And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.
WE HAVE RAISED A GENERATION WHO DOES NOT KNOW GOD OR HIS GREATNESS.
WE HAVE RAISED A GENERATION THAT DOES NOT FEAR GOD.
WE NEED TO GET BUSY FOLKS. IF THERE IS ANY HOPE FOR AMERICA.
AMERICA WAS BUILT ON BIBLE PRINCIPLES!
OUR FOREFATHERS: GEORGE WASHINGTON, THOMAS JEFFERSON, PATRICK HENRY, DANIEL WEBSTER, ABRHAM LINCOLN WERE ALL MEN THAT WERE STUDENTS OF THE BIBLE & PRACTICING CHRISTIANS.
LISTEN TO THEIR WORDS:
GEORGE WASHINGTON: “IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GOVEN RIGHTLY WITH OUT GOD & THE BIBLE”
THOMAS JEFFERSON: “CAN THE LIBERTIES OF A NATION BE THOUGHT SECURE WHEN WE HAVE REMOVED THEIR ONLY FIRM BASIS, A CONVICTION IN THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE THAT THESE LIBERTIES ARE THE GIFT OF GOD.”
PATRICK HENRY: “THE BIBLE IS WORTH MORE THAN ALL OTHERS BOOKS WHICH HAVE EVER BEEN PRINTED.”
DANIEL WEBSTER: “IF THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL IS NOT FELT THROUGHOUT THE LENGTH & BREATH OF THE LAND, ANARCHY, & MISS RULE, CORUPTION, DARKNESS WILL REIGN WITH ITS END.”
THAT SOUNDS LIKE AMERICA TODAY!
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: “IT IS THE DUTY OF NATIONS AS WELL AS MEN, TO OWN THEIR DEPENDENCE UPON THE OVERLAYING POWER OF GOD, & TO REGONNIZE THE SUBLINE TRUTH ANNOUNCED IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, & PROVEN BY ALL HISTORY, THAT THOSE NATIONS ONLY ARE BLESSED WHO GOD IS THE LORD.”
THINK ABOUT THOSE STATEMENTS. THEN SEE HOW FAR AMERICA HAS GONE.
I THINK YOU WOULD HAVE TO AGREE. WE HAVE SLIPPED WAY DOWN INTO THE MIRE. WE ARE IN A HORRIABLE PIT. THE ONLY WITH GOD’S HELP CAN WE GET OUT.
TODAY I WISH TO SHOW A GENERATION THAT BROUGHT ON THE DECLINE OF AMERICA THEN SHOW YOU WE NEED A GENERATION TO BRING AMERICA BACK TO GOD. (THAT IS THIS GENERATION OF TODAY) THIS IS MY PRAYER AS AN OLD PREACHER IN YEARS & IN PREACHING.
Psalms 71:18 Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come. THIS GENERATION NEEDS TO KNOW THE GOD I GREW UP WITH.
