America-A Nation Adrift-Part 3

July 5, 2016

 

My friends, a lot has happened in the United States of America, and it has happened very quickly. We need to look at all that has happened today in our nation and we need to ask ourselves…Why has all this happened and how did all this happen? What is the purpose?

Our problem is that we have taken what God has done and created a pleasurable life instead of taking what God has done and what He intended to do for His divine purpose. God’s divine purpose for us is to, “Go ye therefore and make disciples of the nations.” This is where we have gone wrong, and so now a lot of our patriotism and a lot of our passion, I’m afraid is us wanting to hold on to our standard of living and our pleasures; the lust of the eyes, the pride of life, and the lust of the flesh. The reason we speak out loudly in American in many quarters today is because we do want to lose all of this pleasure and all our nice things, instead of thinking this way, the biblical way. We need to hold on to this Republic, we cannot let this Republic fall apart because if it does it is going to slow down the propagation of the Gospel around the world. This is the mindset of a true spirit filled individual.
