Let your Yes be Yes and No be No! Let us be solid in our thinking regarding political issues, before speaking about them. In these troubling times there will be many to get caught up in worldy affairs. It's important as Christians and believers to go and reference what God says first before getting swept away by opinions of others such as media celebrities or political movements. Lets not say something or support something that we don’t fully understand. To make a stance without God could be detrimental in many ways.
We must be diligent as to not be fooled as things can sometimes be portrayed as good, but can be very evil and divisive.
For instance in story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego kneeling. Let us be united in truth and love. I have always been one to question things, actually as small children we are inclined to be curious about learning. We want to know so much. It’s important to cut knowledge with the word of God. Sometimes things have a lot of truth or facts in them but there’s no grace or love for it to really be solid.
We are also supported by our country's constitution which was created by God serving men and women. Let us take a look at these things and test them, question them. Not all books are written by God fearing constitution loving men and women, as our founders and forefathers.
In many cases the majority of people can be very wrong or deceived by powers that be. Which is very sad. This is why history is very important. Let history be a reminder of where we came from and not make the same mistakes.
In lieu of common core teaching and rewritten history we must dig for the truth. It’s not always so easy to find, there are those out there that want to destroy it as to keep others from knowing what really happened. If we look in to the past we can see this happen as countries were taken after a battle was lost. Buildings destroyed, cultures destroyed. Do your research it’s there. I wish I had listened more in world history class, haha. There are some that would have history deleted or changed for their own agendas, or culture. I believe that we are seeing this happen today.
Please go to Rickgreen.com Free classes on constitutional learning.
Thank you for reading as it’s so important for us to understand what all of this means.
Be blessed today and make someone smile. Life is so short, lets do what we can today to make the world a better place.
Also, If we disagree on something, let us lift up each other in prayer and continue show kindness to our fellow men and women and not destroy or ridicule them with our words. We must be mindful in these very stressful times how we react to things happening around us. Im not saying be a passivist, I’m just saying be wise before we speak or react. We never want to sound or come across like a bully. Let us turn to God and know he is with us when we can’t see clearly sometimes. He will lead us and show us truth. If he has something for us to say, you better believe it won’t fall on deaf ears. We have power when we are lead by God. That’s why it’s very important for us to go to him first.
#forgodsolovedtheworld John 3:16
This is an impactful story from Daniel 3:1-30 NLT
King Nebuchadnezzar made a gold statue ninety feet tall and nine feet wide and set it up on the plain of Dura in the province of Babylon. Then he sent messages to the high officers, officials, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges, magistrates, and all the provincial officials to come to the dedication of the statue he had set up. So all these officials came and stood before the statue King Nebuchadnezzar had set up. Then a herald shouted out, “People of all races and nations and languages, listen to the king’s command! When you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes, and other musical instruments, bow to the ground to worship King Nebuchadnezzar’s gold statue. Anyone who refuses to obey will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.” So at the sound of the musical instruments, all the people, whatever their race or nation or language, bowed to the ground and worshiped the gold statue that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up. But some of the astrologers went to the king and informed on the Jews. They said to King Nebuchadnezzar, “Long live the king! You issued a decree requiring all the people to bow down and worship the gold statue when they hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes, and other musical instruments. That decree also states that those who refuse to obey must be thrown into a blazing furnace. But there are some Jews—Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego—whom you have put in charge of the province of Babylon. They pay no attention to you, Your Majesty. They refuse to serve your gods and do not worship the gold statue you have set up.” Then Nebuchadnezzar flew into a rage and ordered that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego be brought before him. When they were brought in, Nebuchadnezzar said to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, that you refuse to serve my gods or to worship the gold statue I have set up? I will give you one more chance to bow down and worship the statue I have made when you hear the sound of the musical instruments. But if you refuse, you will be thrown immediately into the blazing furnace. And then what god will be able to rescue you from my power?” Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.” Nebuchadnezzar was so furious with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego that his face became distorted with rage. He commanded that the furnace be heated seven times hotter than usual. Then he ordered some of the strongest men of his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace. So they tied them up and threw them into the furnace, fully dressed in their pants, turbans, robes, and other garments. And because the king, in his anger, had demanded such a hot fire in the furnace, the flames killed the soldiers as they threw the three men in. So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, securely tied, fell into the roaring flames. But suddenly, Nebuchadnezzar jumped up in amazement and exclaimed to his advisers, “Didn’t we tie up three men and throw them into the furnace?” “Yes, Your Majesty, we certainly did,” they replied. “Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!”
Then Nebuchadnezzar came as close as he could to the door of the flaming furnace and shouted: “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!” So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stepped out of the fire. Then the high officers, officials, governors, and advisers crowded around them and saw that the fire had not touched them. Not a hair on their heads was singed, and their clothing was not scorched. They didn’t even smell of smoke! Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise to the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego! He sent his angel to rescue his servants who trusted in him. They defied the king’s command and were willing to die rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. Therefore, I make this decree: If any people, whatever their race or nation or language, speak a word against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, they will be torn limb from limb, and their houses will be turned into heaps of rubble. There is no other god who can rescue like this!” Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to even higher positions in the province of Babylon.
