Strangely enough, it also included a big morale boost for traditional Americans to hear the great speech by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. A man of great determination and courage, Bibi Netanyahu told them truth about the Middle East while bursting the bubble of fallacy that has been spread throughout America about his governance. Many eyes hopefully were opened yet our nation's policy continues to founder on the wrong side of history.
So America is threatened from without and has great trepidations about the moral leadership and policies within and it makes for a very frightening and uncertain scenario as we ponder our future. But we must realize that no matter how difficult things get and how concerned we become there is an answer if we just seek it out. Where you ask? The answer is a simple one, through our Lord and Savior. We must turn our lives over to Him and He will give us direction.
When Jesus died so horrifically and was put to death at Golgotha, He rose from the dead in three days, spent forty days showing Himself and giving final direction and guidance to His Disciples before ascending to Heaven to be with His Father. And as the Disciples stood around at the site of the Ascension and wondered, the Angel of the Lord told them to return to the Upper Room and wait. After a few days the Holy Spirit came, entered and overcame them, and imbued in them the ability to do wondrous things on behalf of The Lord.
The Holy Spirit comes to us as well when we fully accept Jesus. And while many of us believe in Jesus, recognizing who He is and why He came, that is not enough. We have to also BELIEVE Jesus, believing everything that He has said. When this happens the Holy Spirit will become our constant companion and guidance counselor and lead us in what we do. At that point not only do we understand the Way and the Truth, but we will have embarked on the Life, a new and everlasting life with Him. At that point we have His body armor of protection as a soldier of Christ and we are protected from the world of sin all about us. We truly become Christian soldiers.
In a nutshell, our future is all about the Cross, for by going through the Cross and accepting forgiveness for all of our sins through the Blood of Jesus, there will be no need to fear again. We will will have the ability to withstand anything, knowing that when this world is done, the Glory of the Kingdom of God will be our home,
Won't you take that walk through the Cross of Jesus with me?
