Wake Up America

Have you ever stopped to consider what the word “America” means?  “America” comes from two gothic words, “Amel” and “Ric”.  Amel means Heaven and Ric means Kingdom.  America was established to be an example of The Kingdom of Heaven on earth!  But where are we today and what have we become?  Note the words of Jesus in Matthew 12:25 , “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.”   

A few days ago, we witnessed the greatest division in our nation since the civil war.  What started out as a public trial ended up exposing just how far some governmental leaders will go to divide our nation. They left nothing to the imagination and plan to do whatever is necessary to destroy our country’s values, freedoms and the progress that has been made in the last 2 years. Rightly dividing the truth from lies in the coming months will be a challenge, and only the Word of Godcan protect you from deception. You must get as close to God as you can get and PRAY without ceasing.  The Bible tells us that even the very elect will be deceived. Socialist candidates are the future of coming elections. Watch for Party issues such as no prisons, no borders and free education, housing, food, …  Look at the failures of Russia, Cuba and Venezuela.  Is this what you want for America?  

Last week’s fiasco, watched by the world, was painful and insulted the word, democracy. But this is nothing new. David the psalmist went through this trial. Justice Clarence Thomas went through this trial.  And now Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going through the same trial.  

Today, in my private study time, the Holy Spirit led me to read Psalm 64.  King David wrote this Psalm when he was being pursued by his own son and those in his kingdom cabinet (government) during his reign.  It was written 3,000 years ago but speaks to us today regarding the accusations against Judge Kavanaugh.  Please take the time to read and ponder Psalm 64: 

Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint;
Guard my life from the terror of the enemy.
Hide me from the 
secret counsel andconspiracy of the ungodly,
From the scheming of those who do wrong,

Who have 
sharpened their tongueslike a sword.
They aim venomous wordsas arrows,

To shoot from ambush at the blameless [one];
Suddenly they shootat him, without fear.

They encourage themselves in [their pursuit of] an 
evil agenda;
They talk of laying snares secretly;
They say, “Who will discover us?

devise acts of injustice, saying,
We are ready with a well-conceived plan.”
For the inward thought and the heart of a man are deep (mysterious, unsearchable).

But God will shoot them with an [unexpected] arrow;
Suddenly they will be wounded.
So they will be caused to stumble;
Their own tongue is against them;
All who gaze at them will shake the head [in scorn].

Then all men will fear [God’s judgment];
They will declare the work of God,
And they will consider andwisely acknowledge what He has done.
The righteous will rejoice in the Lordand take refuge in Him;
All the upright in heart will glory and offer praise.

There is no prejudice in the Bible.  It is the inspired word of God.  We must remember that even our Lord and Savior was falsely accused, illegally tried and sentenced to death by the media and the opposing party of His day. 

So the question is, “What am I to do about this situation?”  Your job is to wake up and see what is really taking place.  Fast, pray and go to the polls and vote! This is a spiritual battle and it can only be won through the power of the Spirit!
