September 9, 1776…


ARE WE STILL THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

On September 9, 1776, the Continental Congress formally declared the name of the new nation to be the “United States” of America.

United means: 1. Made one : COMBINED  2. Relating to or produced by joint action; a united effort 3. Being in agreement: HARMONIOUS  a United family

‘E Pluribus Unum’ – one out of many

IS IT TIME TO DROP THE WORD UNITED?

If we listen to 24/7 “news” channels or review comments, Memes, and tweets on political sites  we see revealed a deep and bitter divide in our nation. We are no longer united as Americans. 😢

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR OUR FUTURE?

Jesus Christ answers this question even before we face it…

But He knew their thoughts and said to them, “Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and a house divided against itself falls. Luke 11:17

Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be laid waste, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. Matthew 12:25

Jesus did not say “some” or “many”, He said “every” house divided will fall.  America will be no exception. We will either repent and unite, or we are destined  to fall. The prophet Isaiah wrote of Israel:

For thus said the Lord (YHWH), the Holy One of Israel, “You will be saved in returning and rest. Your strength will be in quietness and in confidence.” You refused…Isaiah 30:15

I hope it will not be written that Americans refused.

PLEASE PRAY FOR UNITY

Men Ought Always To Pray…

We should pray for those with whom we agree and those with whom we disagree.

Pray that God’s will be done during crisis. That He will fight for those who seek to do His will and that truth and justice will prevail.

With God, all things are possible…(Matthew 19:26)
