It is a beautiful day in our little town. I am thankful to Yahweh that I have freedom in this nation, though it seems to be dwindling fast. I’m reminded that men do not give freedom. Only Yahweh, the Mighty, Mighty One of Scripture, and that is in His Son, Yahshua the Messiah who died and rose again. Today I give honor and esteem where it is due, to Him.
We have fought many wars, with politicians and rulers saying it was to secure our freedom. Some appear that they were, maybe, the right thing to do, and some of them questionable at the very least. Just because we’re living in America doesn’t mean that everything our country does is right. After all, we are all just men.
Some men want to do right and are deceived into coming alongside that which is wrong. Some are deceived and become deceivers in their own right, unknowingly. And some deceive knowingly. Either way people suffer at the hands of those who rule unrighteously apart from the Truth contained in the Set Apart Scriptures. I pray we become a nation of people who want Truth and are willing to live in Truth, regardless of our traditions and in spite of the rewriting of history on both the right and left of the political spectrum, and religious dogma in this nation and in the world. Scripture is Truth. Man’s personal interpretation, mandated and fought over, is dogma.
The rulers of our nation kill the innocent before they are born. They flaunt the Law of Yahweh, as do the religious right, and every other form of godliness that denies the power found in the Truth of the Word, and in His Son. It matters not what it is called. It is sad that many die for lawlessness and lies. Would it be that the professing church/body of Messiah would be willing to begin the journey out of the Babylon of lawlessness they call Christianity and begin to walk and live as the Messiah, the Son of Yahweh lived. He did not set aside the Law/Torah of His Father. How can we expect blessing when His Word says that those who rebel against His Law/Torah will be under the curse? Blessing comes through obedience and obedience only comes through His Son who’s death set us free, and by dwelling in us gives us the power/grace to obey. It is not by my power, nor by my might, nor by might and power of this nation, but by the Set Apart Spirit who writes the Law/Torah on the hearts of the people of Yahweh, who are found in His Son Yahshua.
My thoughts are with the families of those who lost loved ones in these conflicts, whether they were right or wrong. My family has suffered loss. I lost a first cousin in Viet Nam. But my devotion is not to this nation, but to the One who gives and takes away, the One who is the Creator of all life, and the One who can give real freedom in His Son, to live abundant life, and eternal life. I pray that we all remember that.
Some think they can turn this nation around by rising up against the government. Some think it will happen at the ballot box. I don’t believe either of those will work. Revolt simply gives power to the one who has the most bullets and are willing to kill more to gain the upper hand. And in the end, what do we have but another set of men who rule unrighteously. Take note of the elections, at least in the past 50 years. Has right ever been in power in this nation? Or has it been wickedness that is simply separated by an R or a D designation after their name. Violence nor elections will save this nation. Only repentance from dead works, and lies, and lawlessness marked by changed lives. and then He may stay His hand, and bless, if we seek His face.
In Him it is not Independence day, it is dependence day, and it is EVERY DAY! We are dependent upon Him and His Instruction, and His Son, and His work of grace. It is a lie of the devil, Satan, who tells us we are independent. However, in Yahshua we have true freedom. And that freedom, paid for by His blood, sets us free that we may choose to walk in His Truth, and worship Him according to how He has told us to worship Him – in Spirit and in Truth.
May we be found pleasing to Him today, by grace through faith (belief) in what He has said. And if we do this I believe we can say,
“May Yahweh bless the USA.”
