Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD….”
Does any such nation exist today ? In Barbados, our political party rallies and legal functions still begin with prayer… the words to our national anthem still place God as the unseen ruler of our land… inspite of whatever lack of committment or lipservice to God may exist in the organisations of State, we still acknowledge God publicly from the highest office in our land…. but we cannot take this for granted, we must be diligent individually and as a nation to guard against the IDOLATRY of the present age.
How is it that in the United States and England it has become a crime to speak of God in public schools ? Could there be a connection between the current state of our world and the present GODLESSNESS of all it’s leaders ?
Beware of HUMANISM, it sounds ever so “right”…. after all, the second commandment tells us to love our fellow man as ourselves…. but behind the humanist agenda, MAN is seen as his own god…. gone are the idols of silver and of gold…. but man is now worshipping HIMSELF…. the “wisdom” of the atheist and the evolutionist…. the gods of materialism, comfort, pleasure…. it is all happening even as I write this.
The problems in Haiti are spiritual….. no amount of aid is going to assuage the Haitian people or offer any “permanent” cure to their ongoing disasters….. until the land is cleansed of the VOODOO demons, but this has to happen across the board…. the leadership as well as the masses of the people need to REPENT and turn to GOD ….. NATIONALLY.
There are those who resist this concept…. they say all “faiths” must be respected…. and the Christian Bible must take it’s place among all the holy books of other faiths…. all religions are basically the same…. is this true ?
HISTORY does not support this idea….. from the time that God called Abraham to the present day Israel….. supernatural judgement has been meted out to all the other “gods” of the various nations.
Isaiah 42:8 “I am the LORD: that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to carved images”
Let us do our part to exalt the GREAT GOD of the UNIVERSE…. and rebuke and correct “wrong” thinking and compromise whenever we encounter it.
All it takes for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.
Collectively we must speak out and insist that Barbados retains it’s historical identity…. and does not “give in” to the current “world view” of SECULAR HUMANISM.
Prayer for Today:
Father, we are powerless to change the world as individuals… but we CAN do our part by refusing to accept the current “world view”…. and by speaking out boldly as your Apostles did two thousand years ago… thank you for today… in Jesus name we pray… Amen.
