Unity

And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; Revelation 5:9 KJV

True unity, harmony, and peace is only possible when we are ruled by the Prince of Peace, Jesus. the Messiah of Israel and the Savior of the world.

Harmony can only be found when there are differences in pitch and tone. The sounds of many different instruments can harmonize under the direction of a master conductor. 

People can only harmonize in life when they follow the Master conductor.

Unity is not necessarily total agreement on everything, but rests in the ability to agree to disagee agreeably and to live cheerfully with and appreciate differences.

Jesus doesn’t make clones. He makes disciples and co-laborers of all manner of men.

For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.  And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:27‭-‬29 KJV


Choose

But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the Lord .
Jeremiah 12:17 KJV

America will not stand if it’s people do not come together as “One Nation Under God”.

And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. Mark 3:25 KJV

Our strength is in our unity and dedication to the Constitution in that it is a biblically inspired document meant for a biblically governed people.

Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.  Psalms 127:1 KJV

What we need is a national revival.

It’s time to repent, and turn back to the God of our founders!


Peace


Behold, I am the Lord , the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27 KJV

There is no sense to getting aggravated, agitated, concerned, or fearful when things appear to threaten you. As people of faith, we should not be moved by our circumstances or situations. 

Our confidence is in the immutable Word of our God.

It is good to remember that nothing takes God by surprise and that He is well able to keep us as we entrust our lives to Him.

God is our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable], A very present and well-proved help in trouble. Psalm 46:1 Amp

For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. Psalms 27:5 KJV


Fear Not


Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.  Jeremiah 33:6 KJV

I declare, Peace! Peace to the divisive emotional storms plaguing our people. 

Fear not! God is working to heal our strife torn nation. 

We need to cooperate by walking in love and seeking opportunities to dialogue with those of differing perspectives.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.  Matthew 5:9 KJV


Distracted?

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV

We are subject to so much negative, and often times false, news along with all the sword rattling in the political climate of the world that it is easy to be distracted from God’s promises. 

When that happens our minds begin to rehearse evey bad and evil report. If we’re not careful we begin to give place to fear and unbelief in God’s Word. We yield to sickness and disease, frustration and failure and lose the victory that’s in Christ Jesus.

What you talk about is what you think about. 

O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Matthew 12:34 KJV

Fill your thoughts with the Word of God and your mouth will speak them and begin to bring righteousness, peace and joy into your life’s experience.

Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.  With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.  I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways. Psalms 119:11‭, ‬13‭-‬13‭, ‬15 KJV

[looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work].  Hebrews12:2 Amp


Distractions


“I’m on my way; I’ll be there soon. Keep a tight grip on what you have so no one distracts you and steals your crown.
Revelation 3:11 MSG

Jesus is coming back for a glorious church without spot nor wrinkle. He’s also coming as the Judge of all who walk in rebellion toward His words and the Father’s will.

Don’t let anything or anyone distract you from following and serving Him. Keep yourself in the knowledge of His holiness and might.

Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.  And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you. Leviticus 20:7‭-‬8 KJV

It’s up to each of us read the Word, heed the Word, believe the Word, keep the Word, and speak the Word.

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV


Help

And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. Isaiah 65:24 KJV

God is nearer than the sound of your voice.  Even before you know you need help, it’s on the way.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalms 46:1 KJV

Have no fear, God is near

The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Psalms 9:9 KJV

Help is on the way!
