Her Illness

Our once great nation seems to be suffering from a long illness. A slow agonizing death appears to be squeezing the life out of our nation. Right is wrong, up is now down, black is white and dismay abounds in all our cities both small and great. Absolutes have been replaced with abstracts, ideas that don't work, ideas that are flawed and produce doom. Whatever looks correct to the beholder at the particular time it is happening becomes the rule. When did absolutes become wrong? Who decided that?

America used to stand for something, now it stands for just about nothing. Everybody is afraid to be politically incorrect, when did being political become correct? Where have all our heroes gone, where are the men and women that will pay the price for the health and recovery of our nation? Webster defines hero as “a man of distinguished valor or enterprise in danger,” but, where are they?

It's been told to me that if you tell a lie long enough and loud enough that people will think it is the truth. Where does it make the statement separation between church and state in our Constitution? Where is it? Yet the media screams it, organizations fight for it, even some churches believe in it, but it doesn't exist. There in lies our terminal disease. The diagnosis is terminal unless someone takes notice.

Men have risked their lives and fortunes to birth this nation some 200 plus years ago. Are there any willing to risk it all again for America as she lies on life support. Is there any coming to her bedside? Is there a stream of visitors coming to and fro checking on her, watching over her? Or has she been abandoned by self-interest, and noncommittal attitudes? Have we as Americans sucked her dry of all her life, and vitality just taking and never giving back? Is it too late, are we watching the death of this great nation, are we going to stand by and do nothing and watch the light go out?

Strike a Match

Everybody knows and understands the great destruction one match can cause. We hear on the news all the time of thousands of acres and many homes that have been destroyed because of one spark from a single match. Thousands of dollars and loss of life can be caused by one little match.

One vote has made the difference in elections all over our land down through the years. One person who decided to get up and cast his or her vote changed the whole outcome of the election. Just one vote!! How much effort does it take to cast a vote or to strike a match, yet the results could be astounding.

Like it or not, believe it or not, our nation was founded on Godly principles. Our laws, our conduct, our morals, our knowledge of right and wrong and our history screams this to be the truth. You would have to willingly turn a deaf ear to the truth not to realize this nor understand this fact. Psalms 33:12 states “Blessed [is] the nation whose God [is] the LORD; [and] the people [whom] he hath chosen for his on inheritance.”

Won't someone strike a match? Darkness is not stronger than light, but as the light goes out darkness is more than willing to take over, won't any one strike a match? Jesus said in Matthew 5:14 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.” Christian, you are the match, you are the light, listen to this statement “you are the light of the WORLD,” not just American, but the entire WORLD. As Christians, our light is flickering, and about to go out, therefore America is paying the price. Remember what one spark can do, remember how fast fire can spread, won't someone strike a match? America is dying without the light of the gospel, she has lost her way, won't someone strike a match.....please.
