TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
God has freed you from bondage. Take heart and love others who are still in bondage. Remember the chains you shed. That is your testimony of Jesus.
ENDOWED BY OUR CREATOR
America needs Christianity because America needs a memory. Understand this reality: if there is no church, there is no America.
The second sentence of the Declaration of Independence – part of the covenant our godly forefathers made – says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
These rights exist not because the government decided it, but because God Almighty decreed it. Our founders were in agreement with the Apostle Paul when he wrote, “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty and freedom.”
This truth will offend nearly everybody. The Muslims don’t believe this, and if they get a greater Muslim voice in this country, we won’t have a country anymore. Atheists don’t believe this. The liberal teachers and college professors running our schools today don’t believe this.
There are people on our Supreme Court who do not believe this. The racists among us don’t believe this.
Christians are the only people in America who believe in what America is all about.
America needs the church to be the church because America needs a conscience. Without the church, there is no conscience.
As the church in general, and the Tribe of OpenDoor Church in specific, do you believe in the freedom Jesus brings? If you do, you’ll be offering it to everyone you meet! If you do, you’ll testify to the love and transformation He brings.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. – Revelation 12:11
If you love your life as an American Christian and a member of the OpenDoor tribe, lose it for Jesus. Serve. Love. Testify. Redeem.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO LOSE YOUR LIFE FOR THE CAUSE OF CHRIST. BE THE CHURCH BY LOVING PEOPLE INTO THE KINGDOM.
