What we teach in the home and in the classroom will be the foundation of government in 30 years, by all means we must teach God's Word.
"Now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and the judgments which I am teaching you to perform, so that you may live and go in and take possession of the land which the LORD, the God of your fathers, is giving you. You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. Your eyes have seen what the LORD has done in the case of Baal-peor, for all the men who followed Baal-peor, the LORD your God has destroyed them from among you. But you who held fast to the LORD your God are alive today, every one of you. See, I have taught you statutes and judgments just as the LORD my God commanded me, that you should do thus in the land where you are entering to possess it. So keep and do them, for that is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples who will hear all these statutes and say, 'Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.' For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as is the LORD our God whenever we call on Him? Or what great nation is there that has statutes and judgments as righteous as this whole law which I am setting before you today? Only give heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, so that you do not forget the things which your eyes have seen and they do not depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your sons and your grandsons. Remember the day you stood before the LORD your God at Horeb, when the LORD said to me, 'Assemble the people to Me, that I may let them hear My words so they may learn to fear Me all the days they live on the earth, and that they may teach their children.'” Deuteronomy 4:1-10.
Our hearts and minds should be deeply concerned and grieved when elected officials in any town, county, state, Congress or the White House will recognize a god other than Jehovah God of the Bible. Our Nation was founded upon the precepts of God’s Word, the wisdom of Jehovah God, and we now have a government brimming with men and women who no longer observe Him as Creator God. Shame on us as a people for we are beginning to see the results of our foolishness as a Nation. There is but one alternative to avoid the punishment upon this Nation and that is to return to Him.
“See, I have taught you statutes and judgments just as the LORD my God commanded me, that you should do thus in the land where you are entering to possess it.” V.5.
Our Forefathers came to the shores of this Continent searching for freedom from an abusive government and possessed this land in the Name of God. As a people, we have come a very long way and somehow lost our Course that could very well change our Destiny.
“So keep and do them, for that is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples who will hear all these statutes and say, 'Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.’” V.6.
A few years after celebrating 200 years of being “One Nation Under God”, many of us are content with allowing many ‘other gods’ in our tent. Other world nations continuously marveled at our economic, political and military power, but not so today. These same Nations are wondering if we are able to be a world leader any longer. We have become a Debtor Nation in many more ways than economics. No longer are we seen as wise and understanding.
“Only give heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, so that you do not forget the things which your eyes have seen and they do not depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your sons and your grandsons.” V.7.
Few of us have kept the Word of God available to our children and fewer schools are reading His Book in the classroom. For this foolishness we have leadership in our Nation’s Capitol who are honoring other gods and other books of wisdom apart from God’s Word and His Wisdom. When leaders uphold the religion of another god as being worthy above the God of Christian Faith, we are no longer heeding truth and power, but rather lies and weakness.
“But you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. "It shall come about if you ever forget the LORD your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I testify against you today that you will surely perish. Like the nations that the LORD makes to perish before you, so you shall perish; because you would not listen to the voice of the LORD your God.” Deuteronomy 8:18-20.
AS Believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we must not allow ourselves to forget our God and we MUST not allow our people to forget Him. In doing so our Nation will perish.
