America Again-Carman

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson Samuel Adams, First Chief Justice John Jay Names synonymous with the spirit of our country Founding fathers of the U.S.A. Over 200 years ago they shook off the chains of tyranny from Great Britain By divine call Citing 27 biblical violations they wrote the Declaration of Independence With liberty and justice for all But something happened since Jefferson called the Bible the cornerstone For American liberty then put it in our schools as a light Or since "Give me liberty or give me death", Patrick Henry said Our country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ We eliminated God from the equation of American life Thus eliminating the reason this nation first began From beyond the grave I hear the voices of our founding fathers plead You need God in America again Of the 55 men who formed the Constitution Fifty-two were active members of their church Founding fathers like Noah Webster who wrote the first dictionary Could literally quote the Bi

Word of Testimony

Satan's primary weapon is accusation. Because you're under the blood of Jesus, Satan can't accuse you before God, but he can accuse God before you. Will you stand for truth and follow the Truth, when you risk losing everything? Living a life that's founded on truth, regardless of the cost, is what separates conquerors from cowards. -Dr. Ted Roberts- Conquered Series

Take Up Your Cross

Modern states that allow for the death penalty attempt to carry out the sentence as quickly and as painlessly as possible. The ancient Roman Empire did not share these sensibilities. Its execution process was designed to inflict as much pain as possible for as long as possible. The public spectacle of a man slowly dying as he hung naked, beaten and nailed to a cross, was a highly effective deterrent. Why, then, would Jesus choose such a metaphor when He talked to His disciples about following Him? It doesn’t make sense; who would want to be crucified? Unless it wasn’t a metaphor. Jesus wasn’t trying to be dramatic. He literally went to the cross, and He literally lost His life. He made a choice to suffer and die for a greater purpose, and He called His disciples to do the same. He wasn’t trying to give an inspirational speech. Instead he was warning His followers to steel their resolve and be ready for the hard road ahead. While many were eager to hear the message of Christ, others

Your Heart's Desire

What is the desire of your heart? An ideal partner to share your life with? A good job? A home of your own? Peace of mind? Are there desires that are still unfulfilled? Many people have many ways of reaching for their heart’s desire--we strive, work night and day, plan and strategize, even beg, steal or borrow. But do you know that the Bible gives us one sure, pleasant and blessed way to find what our hearts long for? Psalm 37:4 says, “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” I love this verse. What it is really saying is--spend time with God, put Him first, know Him well, discover how much He loves you. Then your heart will find what it seeks. Now you may be asking, “If I delight myself in the Lord this way, then I can have anything in the world I want?” No it doesn’t work that way. The word for delight in Hebrew means to be dependent upon God and to derive one’s pleasure from Him. Do you rely on God completely? Do you relish his const

Until You Pray

After the invitation to prayer and the assurance that He will answer, God added an addendum to the policy He gave Jeremiah: “Call to Me, and I will answer you” (Jeremiah 33:3a). What's the answer going to be like, God? First all, “ . . . I will tell you great things you have not known” (v.33b). I will inspire you with greater understanding and knowledge than you could achieve on your own. Let's think about Jeremiah here for a minute. God instructed His prophet to remain unmarried as a sign of the harsh judgment that God was bringing to correct Israel in their rebellion. Jeremiah’s audience was heavily involved in idol worship. They were into deception and debauchery. God's people were fully engaged in this blatant rejection of God. This is as clear as it gets: If something is going on in your life today and you're wondering about God’s character, "If God really is X, then why is Y happening?" The answer to that dilemma is prayer. God says, “Call to Me, (in t
