The 45th President of The United States

As I sit watching the inauguration of the 45th President of the United Sates with it’s procession of dignitaries, past Presidents, and all it’s pomp and circumstance with one thought in mind.

Is Donald J. Trump God’s man for the job?

Is he? Does God even concern Himself with who sits in the Oval Office? The Word of God would lead us to believe that God isn’t a nationalist. He is not a respecter of persons and wishes that all men (and women) come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus. We know that He loves the children of Israel. The people, not the nation.

The Word of God tells us that we are not of this world. We are, in fact, strangers in a strange land. This is not our home. At the same time we are instructed to pray for those in leadership positions over us. Pray for the Peace of Israel. To follow after peace and treat each other as we would want to be treated.

But all this doesn’t answer the question – Is our 45th President ordained by God?

In my humble opinion – Yes! God ordained Donald Trump to be President at such a time as this. Not, because he will be the savior of the USA or the hero of our nation. Not because he is a deeply religious man. Not because he is an accomplished statesman. No. The now, President Donald J. Trump, is ordained by God to lead our nation because God is in control. From His Throne on High, God orchestrates the course of history to accomplish His goals. He  allows nations to rise and fall, leaders to come and go, in order to fulfill is mandate – save souls! God desires that no man perish! He know the number of the hairs on our head, He collects our tears in a bottle, He loves us with an everlasting love and sent His own Son to die for our sins.

It is this Father God in Heaven Who loves us enough to care about who is our leader. Weather that leader is great or small. Fallible or infamous. Religious or secular. No matter if you love our new President or hate him if you call Jesus Lord and God your Father you must pray for him and trust that God is in control.

Presidents will come and go but Jesus is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow!

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,   for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,  who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.  For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus                               1 Timothy 2:1-5 NKJV as read at the inauguration by the Rev. Franklin Graham

May God Bless President Donald J Trump and May God Bless America!

Happy 4th Of July !!!!!!

God Bless America by Irving Berlin

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.
God bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home
God bless America, My home sweet home.

Bar-B-Ques, Parades, Fireworks, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie, Family and Friends and hopefully no rain! Oh, lets not forget the music! Concerts and patriotic songs playing everywhere. Once a year we all stand up and beat a drum (and our chest) in celebration of our country and our history and our freedom. Freedom from the tyranny of an oppressive foreign king. Freedom from free and freedom to live the life you want.

Norman Rockwell immortalized FDR’s* 4 freedoms in oil paintings back in 1943. They are just as touching and true today. You can see them here.

While you are enjoying the freedom our forefathers authored and so many have protected with their lives keep in mind the freedom that was purchased for you over 2000 years ago. Freedom from the bondage of sin and freedom from the death sentence sin brings with it.

Like our forefathers, God had a dream of seeing His people live lives free from sin. Like those who fought so hard to keep America free, Jesus gave His all to make it possible for everyone to be free from sin and death. All you need do is trust Him at His word and turn to Him. He will do the rest.The blood Jesus shed on the cross will wash away even the darkest sin and make you white as snow.

Consider enjoying Independence Day in a whole you way

Give your heart to Jesus and be truly free.

 Freedom of Speech TSNY

Blessed is the Nation whose God is The Lord  Ps. 33:12 KJV

* FDR proposed 4 Freedoms, that everyone in the world should have, in his state of the union speech in 1941.
