STUDY TO SHOW YOURSELF APPROVED!
If you are a true, bible-believing, saved-by-grace Christian, and so much has been given to you by our Lord, to you and me, when so much has been given, MUCH IS EXPECTED.
Every Christian, no matter the intellect, education, or academic capability, is required to:
Woke, progressive, radical, anti-American individuals, growing by leaps and bounds, count on the fact that you and I will not study the issues, and understand their implications to our faith, our church, and our Lord. No matter the issue, they the enemy count upon Christians being indifferent, uninvolved, and even ignorant of what is really happening, truth and fact in this world of cancel-culture and post-truth. You and I, lovers of our Lord Jesus Christ, must show them that we are the exact opposite. That we still stand up, that we will fight the fight of faith with God-given weapons far superior to the military and violent weapons of the world, and that:
It matters now more than ever. And of course, to us, the ultimate truth is:
THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH OF THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THE AUTHOR AND MAKER OF ALL TRUTH.
That takes study, and work. There is not any human being anywhere who does not have the capability to do that. No matter your level of intelligence, IQ, or academic rating, YOU CAN DO THIS! You must do this. You must be informed, educated, and enlightened, and you must be active, participating, strong in the Lord, wearing the armor of faith, wielding the sword of Righteousness, and fully protected by the Love, Power, and Strength of Jesus Christ. YOU MUST STAND UP AND BOLDLY SO!
Study those scriptures, all of them, Old and New Testament. Learn from them, and ask for the wisdom, guidance, and understanding of the Holy Spirit. Think through those 2
issues. Dwell upon them until you understand them, issues that matter to you, and issues which God has laid upon your heart. Find the answers. That starts with Holy Scripture. Therein lies absolute and unconditional and uncompromising truth.
Study the Constitution. Understand what you can. Seek outside sources which will explain, educate, and edify you, and enlighten you as a proud American citizen. There is no guarantee, no expression of freedom any better or more comprehensive than the incredible First Amendment of that American Constitution. Perhaps the greatest document ever produced by mankind, the expression of freedom, the body of that document with its amendments, ours as Americans since 1787.
We can worship as we please, openly, unashamed, publicly, and as the Lord leads. The right to believe and proclaim the Gospel is a right that can never be taken away, NEVER. We must fight the fight of faith to preserve that right, now and always.
There is no freedom of religion, no right, opportunity, or privilege to be a Christian without the free speech and free press that the First Amendment of the Constitution guarantees. We must be able to speak loudly, boldly, intelligently, and joyfully about the faith which has transformed us, made us different, and which is the core, the substance of our lives. We must preserve those freedoms, speech and press, the heart and soul of liberty at all costs. We must say, and believe, and act upon the words of founding father Patrick Henry, ‘GIVE ME LIBERTY (freedom of religion, speech, and press) OR GIVE ME DEATH!
We must be ready to lay our all on the altar, our lives, our possessions, our future, to protect this liberty, the first and most important of which is:
FREEDOM OF RELIGION.
Anyone, ANYONE, can do that, no matter the education or level of intellect, ANYONE! Ask for the wisdom and guidance of the Holy Spirit, ask for understanding and enlightenment. Ask and you will receive that if you are serious, willing to work and study, and determine to be a better Christian and American. All freedoms take work, and require protection, passionate belief, and determination to win the battle of faith, hope, and love. That battle of faith is not easy, constant, never-ending, and we must be soldiers of the cross until HE returns, the captain of our faith and the only one, THE ONLY ONE, who can redeem and bring peace, goodwill, and love to all humankind.
STUDY! Scripture and Constitution.
PRAY. Ask for the wisdom and understanding of the Holy Spirit, our precious Holy Bible, and our beloved secular counterpart, our Constitution. 3
SPEAK BOLDLY! And, like Paul, say with all your heart:
I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST FOR IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION!
PROTECT AND DEFEND our holy Scriptures.
PROTECT AND DEFEND our beloved Constitution.
Read it, understand what you can, and seek guidance and understanding from sources that can help you become a better fighter of the faith and a champion of America.
To be Christian, to be American, to have those incredible opportunities comes with duty, responsibility, and obligation. Chief of which is to study, learn, engage, be involved, and work for the night is coming, work for your Lord and your Country.
DO WHAT YOU CAN! Only what you can, but do it well, do it with all your might, and protect your faith and your country. For those precious freedoms, privileges, once lost are lost forever. Heed the words of Ronald Reagan:
THE LOSS OF OUR FREEDOM, ALL OF THEM (PERMANENTLY SO) IS ONLY ONE GENERATION AWAY!
