"Time to Turn America Around"

The Time to Turn America Around is now because the ones that we have elected in Washington to serve her have been too busy finding ways to steer her in the wrong direction.

There is no doubt that America needs you supporting her and helping her return to the Christian values that once guided her. This can only be accomplished through education, educating yourself and others on the importance of voting and voting right on the upcoming November 6th election. You simply must get your family and friends involved.

We must rid ourselves of the leaders we have taking us down the drink, the ones excluding God when writing and voting legislation.

Excluding God is shaming Him and you know Christ well enough to see Him addressing these ones in Luke 9:26 KJV:

If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father.

Excluding God is a first class example of shaming Him and to share a side thought with you, have you noticed our American Flag being absence at recent Presidential News Conferences? America is God's Country and Psalm 52:7 KJV addresses the ones replacing Him and His Country with their wickedness (personal self interest):

Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.

What is going on? How can our leaders be satisfied with America headed backwards? The answer is found with a mirror; you and I are the ones voting them into office, voting in those disrespecting America by excluding God.

And voting out disrespectful leaders has hidden benefits. The ones remaining in office after November 6th will have an incentive to respect and include God when voting; Phil 4:13 KJV shows it providing strength:

I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me.

Without Christ , you have nothing and with Him, you have everything...something worth remembering, huh?

Psalm 59:9 KJV gives you and congress another reason to include God when voting:

Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defence.

Besides placing you and our country on offense, God is also our defense; He steers us away from trouble.

Psalm 71:18 KJV shows including God, besides strengthening and maturing you, paving the way for ones yet to come:

Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until

 

 

 


 

I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.

Showing God to your nation and others is strength and maturity; it shows graying the right way. Voting strength in and weakness out is a responsibility God assigns to you as Mark 12:30 KJV references including and loving Him as your First Commandment:

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Wake up America! Wake up voters! God wants your attention and cries for answers:

Do you see you and America needing Him?

Do you hear Him calling?

Do you have plans to return Him to America on November 6th?
