But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light... (I Peter 2:9 KJV0
I believe this November election would be critical event in our nation. Even though both side of political parties would have different views of how our nation to survive from all the problems, is it the time for the Church of Jesus Christ (not Latter Day of Saint) to speak up for the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
1 Peter 2:9 doesn’t only apply for those who lead the churches, but those who truly born again in Jesus Christ. It is so bad enough that some of us would become spiritually fat and not do anything to share the love and truth of God to those who doesn‘t have relationship with Jesus Christ. Why our national leaders proclaim to be born-again Christians and yet they don’t show their fruits of spirits? Is it because they’d like to be popular by Christian voters? If this is the reason, then they would become deceiver of the nation. Currently, American has taken God’s name out from the schools and replaced it with immorality, witchcraft, religions and cults. Today’s churches are so famous that anybody can go to listen to preachers on what they want to hear. There are no convictions of spirits in these churches.
What our nation can do to avoid becoming spiritually poor?
First, we’d need to pray for our nation to reunite with God. I know there are some Christian organizations, in nationwide, have 24/7 fasting and prayer services in the public community. That’s good. But, we also need to spend ourselves with God daily.
Second, we’d need to pray for our family to reunite with God. Our nation issues don’t begin at White House. Even though I may not like what our president is doing, we don’t just blame for our leaders for the mess. Only one person who spoke against the prayer in school, we became silent and let other religions and cults take over the national educational curriculum. Nowadays, we hear about the bomb thread in schools, murder, student had sex with the faculty member, and now, some schools are trying to advocate for the sex education as one of educational curriculums. We’d need to put God in home and the church is not responsible for raising our young people.
We let our young people to vote whoever led this country. Yet, we have created huge mess in our nation. We let our president to advocate for LGBT, abortion, homosexual marriage in Public Square, and formation of Chislam. Our national job losses are kept building and we’ve built trillions of dollars on national debts. Even though we’d see the formation of New World Order, we need to be representative and advocate for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Are you the one who advocate for the kingdom of God? If you are not sure, please think moment what Jesus did for you at the cross. The Bible says that Jesus came to this world to suffer for our sins by dying at the Cross. Not only He died, He resurrected on the third day (72 hours) to demonstrate that He is the bridge between God and men. Apostle Paul said in Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” I love what Joshua (24:15) said, “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
We have the choice to vote which candidate could lead our nation to right direction. Mostly, we’d have to choose either God or world to show our next US President to which road the nation can take.
