Matthew, 12:25: “And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.”
America, Bless God!! I am tired of hearing Americans say, “God Bless America!” God has blessed this Country even before it became a Country! God founded America, but so many have turned away from God’s Blessings here in America. We have abused what God founded. It is time for America to Bless God
I just am so very sad even posting this story……this innocent woman shot to death…..this man left without his wife……all the other innocent victims and the lives of their families changed forever. America has become a strange country…we go from one massacre to another….nothing changes, except people argue and get mean on how to solve this awful, horrific problem. We have become a very strange country. Most say they want change, but nothing happens. It only gets worse here.
Now I say I am sad about posting this story, but I am grateful for all the people that came to the funeral to be with the man who lost is wife in the shooting in El Paso: ABQ Journal Story
America has become great in saying we are praying for the victims families, but what are we doing to put hands and feet to those prayers to Almighty God? What are we doing to change the world for God? America is great at speaking “nothing noise” shouting out and doing nothing about these massacres.
At this point in the history of America, I think the only thing that this Country can agree upon is that we are in bad shape. It makes me so very sad that people think politics can turn this country around, Do not be foolish! Politics got us here! Jesus is the only one that can rescue America!
Is this America the that you want to hand down to your children and their children? We fight each other, we say mean things, we are just burying ourselves in meanness. Nothing is solved by saying mean things. It is only by spreading the love of Jesus to the world and modeling that love that will change hearts for Jesus! Mean words and arguing just pour gas on this raging fire here in America! The Body of Christ should behave itself and do the following:
I challenge you all to post the Ten Commandments and the Lord’s Prayer in your Church and homes. Live by them. We have them posted here at FGGAM and strive to live by them every second of the day.
The Church needs to carry out The Great Commission, Matthew 28:16-20. Change hearts for Jesus!
From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham
Q: What does it mean to say that God sees the hearts of mankind that are dark and evil? — H.M.
A: The heart is the seat of our emotions, the seat of our decisive action, and the seat of belief (as well as doubt). It symbolizes the center of our moral, spiritual, and intellectual life.
The Bible speaks very specifically about the human heart. It devises wicked imaginations (Proverbs 6:18), it is deceitful above all things (Jeremiah 17:9), it is far from God (Matthew 15:8), and it is foolish and darkened (Romans 1:21). My! This is not a pretty picture.
But God has not left the human heart in this state. He devised a way to make Himself known. He came to get at the very heart of man’s disease — SIN. This was the sole purpose in Jesus coming to earth, to save us from the sin that can destroy us.
This is the meaning of the phrase, “Invite Jesus into your heart.” When we seek the Lord and turn from sin, He comes into every facet of life and transforms our thinking, our speaking, our deeds, our relationships, our desires, and He replaces our fears with trust. He changes our hate into love. He makes our hearts new.
It is God who evaluates the state of our hearts. He is the One who ponders our hearts (Proverbs 21:2), and searches our hearts (Jeremiah 17:10). The Bible tells us He also weighs our hearts, and we come up short (Romans 3:23).
But the heart of Christ, full of compassion and love, bled on the cross for our sinful hearts. His pure heart, His perfect heart, and His tender heart, made a way for us to have clean hearts before Him. Oh, that we would turn our hearts to this wonderful Savior.
