From the teaching Governments, Kingdoms, and Citizenship

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."  This is what I said everyday in school before class was underway; on my feet with my right hand over my heart. It was a mindless proclamation and I never pondered what it meant; it was just routine. More and more though, I'm learning that my allegiance does not belong to a nation built by men, a skin color or race, or a gender, but to the One that made me and called me into His nation.  In this world of unparalleled social engineering, we are being pulled in so many directions to identify with this or that and it's easy to lose sight of what really matters.  What really matters is that we are aligned with His will and living according to His instructions.  Man wants to achieve certain goals on earth that are aimed at amassing enormous wealth, extending life, and the power to control people and resources.  Why?  Because if we can do this, there is no need to be submitted to the will of the Most High.  We can provide for ourselves and therefore we don't need a God telling us what to do and how to do it.  We can be totally committed to fulfilling our own desires and that's what feels good to the flesh. 

The global media want us to believe that the steps governments around the world are taking is to bring unity and justice to mankind, but it's a falsehood.  Some good things are being done of course, but the agenda that drives globalization is greed and power.  In America, I witness racial tension being manipulated to drive a narrative into the minds of people of all colors.  It's sickening to see the media having such influence on how people form opinions on certain matters.  In Black America, there is a pull by the enemy to draw on validation through racial pride.  In fact, it is so insidious that many people don't even realize that they are becoming the very thing they fight against.  But, like I tell people all the time, we can talk about this social ill and that social error until we are blue in the face.  We can come up with all sorts of solutions and the world definitely has limitless options to offer, but they only address symptoms of the problem.  The problem is Matthew 24:12.  Wickedness thrives because of the absence of the desire to serve the Almighty.  All these social ills will continue because men desire to serve themselves and their evil ambitions.  In the history of mankind there are cycles of peace and tribulation and that cycle will continue until that new heaven and new earth are realized. 

This is not a call to sit back and do nothing because strife will be with us as long as there is flesh and blood and this is not a call to pick up you picket sign and get on the corner.  This is about shedding light on the plan and call the Father has for us rather than what the world is trying to place before us.  If we get on our job as ambassadors for YeHoVaH, then we have everything to gain and nothing to lose.  We can affect change in our community by being the light we are called to be and this is our most important role.  Let's pray for our nations and the leaders.  Let's pray for Father to raise up laborers to work  alongside His people and for the hearts of men to receive His Spirit.  Let's pray that we are a people that are being led by the Spirit so that we CAN do His work. 

We are in an information war and can't afford to allow the enemy to plant seeds of hate, rebellion, discontentment, and any other thing that takes our feet off the path that the Spirit has placed us.  We need to be strong and of good courage to fight this fight.
