Genesis 12:3:  “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed”

 Romans 11:18: “do not be arrogant toward the branches.  If you are, remember it is not you who supports the root, bu the root that supports you.”

Many people always seem to want or desire a welfare state (which is a police state in disguise) until they have it but by then it is too late for them to reclaim the freedom that they once had…..for once freedom is lost it is often lost forever.

Sadly, what is most sickening for those who were once free but gave up that freedom for the so-called comfort of the welfare state only to find themselves in the police state have to live their lives and also watch their children live their lives in servitude to said state due to their own abdication of the very freedoms that they once had.

Government always seeks to show itself as a “giving” entity to entice the citizens into giving up their liberty but once that liberty is given to them either voluntarily or forcibly through taxation, by the barrel of their gun, or both it soon stops “giving” and soon starts “demanding” from the very people who it once purported to be “taking care of”.

This is the crux of the movement that is proliferating in our nation right now and at the very heart of it but subtly understated is that we (those that purport Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior) are slowly losing our right to worship God as we see fit and by the hand of many who have gained power that claim “Christ” as their Savior no less. 

My belief is that when God gave the Founders of this great nation the vision that was finally realized through the creation of our Constitution He specifically chose these many “Christian” men (some were dietist’s but still believed in a higher “God-like” power) for this specific purpose so that men and women of faith could not only work, praise, and worship Him freely but also pray for, bless, and support our brother’s and sister’s in Israel whom we share a common inheritance with to our Holy God (ours through “en-grafting”) as admonished to in Genesis 12:3 (though God was speaking to our Father Abraham are we not to follow our Father’s example?). 

Let’s pray today that we in the Christian faith open our eyes to the truth and our ears to God’s Holy Spirit so that we can truly discern the subterfuge that is not only being brought upon us from those outside of our family but from within by brothers and sisters whose eyes and ears have been blinded and deafened by the lies of the enemy that are fed to them by this secularist world and thus is being spread amongst us like a plague hoping to destroy the very reason that we gather as one in fellowship…..that is to serve, recognize, praise, and worship Jesus Christ as our God and claim our inheritance through Him to Father God. 

As free moral agents we have the will to listen to our own hearts or we can make the smart choice and do the will and be led by the Spirit of God and it is our very freedom that is at stake for around the world there are many who have never set foot in a prison who have never been free (because they have no relationship with Jesus) and there are many that are now in prison who had never known freedom in their lives until they went to prison and were introduced to the Lord.

 Freedom isn’t free!  Jesus paid the price (a horrible, miserable deathly price) for your eternal soul and our soldiers stand guard on the wall every night and day for our physical peace often in misery so at the very least we as citizens of this great nation should cherish and value the freedoms granted to us first by God then by our Armed Forces with more than just a passing thought and I pray that those who are asleep will awaken and arise to the ringing of freedom’s alarm clock whose last bell is close to being tolled. 

I pray that the Lord God emboldens you to seek freedom today and always, I pray that your ears be attuned to hear better hear from the Holy Spirit today, I pray that you seek God’s face and not His hand today, and I pray that you have a Jesus-filled day today and always!
