So often we hear them, but then we dismiss them.
Prophets speak out, repeating the valuable words of the Bible, in a time when America is desperate to hear the truth. We need to hear the good news, that Jesus spoke for us.
In the old testament, the depth of courage, profound determination, and dedicated knowledge of the Bible brings understanding to the law of the people in old testament times. Continued knowledge and understanding reveals more…
The new testament offers grace.
When you realize the contingency of God’s plan for America, finding the comfort of God’s grace in his plan is a huge benefit. We know that in the ‘days of old’ there was the law. The Israelites championed the law, upholding it, benefiting from it, and living by it as they best could. Yet still, there was rebellion. They were rebellious. They rebelled against the law.
Now, with grace, the grace of God through the blood of Christ, we are given the option – to serve the Lord… But there’s so much more. Beyond service, we are invited through the blood of Christ, to accept his abundance as sons and daughters of the King.
When you grasp the whole power of God’s Grace, through the blood of Christ, to live as royalty, sons and daughters of the King, your heart absorbs the daily reaffirmation to God as giver of life. When you align yourself with God’s team, you’ve chosen to accept the gift of grace, salvation, and a life of abundance.
When America was founded on the Gracious GIFT of God, Christianity, we (as a nation) aligned ourselves with God. We’re on God’s team.
This doesn’t take away your right to choose. You are free to align yourself with the other side if you’d like… But who wants to be there?
When you align yourself with God’s team, you know you’re a winner. I’ve read the last book. God’s team wins. Enjoy this revelation from Ezekiel, but know, “Through Grace we are set Free
Ezekiel’s Call to Be a Prophet
2 He said to me, “Son of man,[a] stand up on your feet and I will speak to you.” 2 As he spoke, the Spirit came into me and raised me to my feet, and I heard him speaking to me.
3 He said: “Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me; they and their ancestors have been in revolt against me to this very day. 4 The people to whom I am sending you are obstinate and stubborn. Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says.’ 5 And whether they listen or fail to listen—for they are a rebellious people—they will know that a prophet has been among them. 6 And you, son of man, do not be afraid of them or their words. Do not be afraid, though briers and thorns are all around you and you live among scorpions. Do not be afraid of what they say or be terrified by them, though they are a rebellious people. 7 You must speakmy words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious. 8 But you, son of man, listen to what I say to you. Do not rebel like that rebellious people; open your mouth and eat what I give you.”
