Proverbs 29:2 – “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.” NKJV

The more I read of the principles upon which this nation was established and see the hearts of the Founding Fathers in their writings beyond the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights I cannot miss the presence of God in it all. 

They sought freedom from tyranny and desired that everyone have the opportunity and liberty to worship according to the dictate of each individual heart.  When the war was finally over, and freedom had been won there was great rejoicing as is described in this verse.  They shifted from groaning to rejoicing. It was akin to what the nation of Israel did so long as God was afforded His sovereign place in the affairs of this nation there was His blessing and cause for rejoicing among the people, believers, and unbelievers alike.  America became a magnet drawing hungry hearts like metal shavings to a powerful magnet.

Over time, wickedness in the hearts of men has eroded that foundation. Little by little America has moved from being “One nation under God,” to a nation that attempts to relegate God to the confines of the walls of the local church and even then, within the edicts of government.  In a profound sense, we have lost our Freedom of Religion.  The Founders did not want a nation “free from religion” but one that had “freedom of religion.”  There is a dynamic difference between the two. 

In each of our hearts, there is a tugging of the Spirit of God that clearly reveals the extent to which we have strayed.  I believe that there is a coming revival, renewal, and restoration and it will begin with judgment at the House of God and move throughout the entirety of our society.  Will all accept it?  NO!  But there will be a harvest that will cause great unrest in the kingdom of darkness and hell will belch forth some of the vilest persecution that this world has ever seen.  It is time that we all make certain that we have our houses in order for we know not what a day may bring forth. 

I believe that God is calling for righteous men and women to join in the battle in the political arena.  I am not focusing on political parties but righteous hearts!  This is not to be considered lightly or in haste because many of those will pay an incredibly high price to see the first part of this passage become reality.  Some will lead armies in the natural and some in the spiritual.  We will fight a battle on two fronts the natural and the spiritual.  Both will be equally important for the achievement of the Purposes of God in this Generation!

We have had times when righteous people served in positions of high authority in this land. During those times we saw incredible accomplishments.  We have also seen times when those in authority were wicked, and the nation suffered as a result.  The only question for each of us is “Will we seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness?” 

If we humble ourselves, pray, seek the face of the Lord, and walk in obedience to His commandments we will see something that many have only fantasized about becoming reality before our eyes.  I write this fully believing in my heart that it is coming from the Throne Room of Heaven and is consistent with the Written Word of God.

So, I urge each of you to bow the knee to Jesus and cry out in repentance for God’s deliverance personally, congregationally, and nationally.  There is something more than just a nation at stake.  

May the Lord bless you and keep you, make His face shine upon you, be gracious unto you, and give you peace!
