People, how far will we allow ourselves to drift away from the Way of Love? Away from what makes America a Great Nation. As stated in Mark 3:24-25 ” If a kingdom (country) is divided against itself, it cannot stand. 25 If a house is divided against itself, it cannot stand.” We have been and can still be the Greatest country on Earth…but, not in the direction we are allowing ourselves to be led. Have we all forgotten what this country was founded on? What made the garden grow and flourish in it’s cultivation. What the heart’s desires and hopes were when our forefathers Immigrated to this Beautiful Garden full of Blessings. If you study history, it was as simple as the words of the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) reply: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Just think of how You feel when you walk in Love or Love is shown to you. Does not the warmth of Joy bloom within when you choose to operate in the Way of Love? Do you not see the effects and growth when you plant the seeds of Love in your home and neighborhood? At the same time, can you not SEE the direction we are going stuck in computers, phones, hating, backbiting, & gossiping? Can you not See and Hear this only creates a “house divided” that will fall? How many have seen the Fall of their communities when the weeds of Division and Hate choke out its very Life. This has been the downfall of countries throughout history. Do we want to follow along like blind sheep and see history repeat itself? See American become a country of destruction fighting over Stuff ? At this point it is up to US, we the people to Stop this divide. To remember we must choose the High Road. Not build walls, live in judgment of one another, act as if we are “holier than thou”. You “know” within yourself the Truth: that we are all created in the same image and no not one of us is perfect nor can caste that stone. Choosing a leader of Hate, Division, and Caster of Stones makes us no different than the Terrorists we are hating on. Bullying, my way or no way is Hate no matter what packaging you put it in. No matter ones race or beliefs we All require, Need, and Thrive in the Abundance of Life when we walk in Love. The same way you see destruction, I know you See the benefits of Love daily too. You see it thru the actions still shown by many throughout the World. It is also True that we die on the vine when we Choose to divide and walk the Road of Greed and Hate. The Life is sucked right out of Our communities which in turn fall and crumble. Only Death resides. Do You want to follow in the footsteps that have destroyed so many countries?
Our forefathers were Immigrants breaking away from Great Britain. Considered the Enlightenment Movement, they questioned traditional authority and embrassed rationalism. (a belief or theory that opinions and actions should be based on reason and knowledge rather than on religious belief or emotional response) This view was an attempt not pass judgment and open the doors of America to ALL mankind. They felt a calling to certain unalienable rights of Life, Liberty, the Pursuit of Happiness for each and every individual. This calling stemmed from living in a life of dictatorship and a lack of Freedom. A calling of the spirit within each of us. That calling is the authority breathed within us..Love planted within. Love does not thrive in the bonds of Control, Abuse, inequality, and division. Man was tired of not being allowed to Grow and BE who He was created to BE. Out of this these words of the constitution were written: ” We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity (all future generations), do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution_transcript.html While the initial 13 colonies who founded the Americas were believers in the Way of the Word of God, in the teaching of Yeshua’s Love, Mercy, Compassion & celebrating their religious as well as political independence, they did not shun the beliefs of their neighbors. This would be a Lack of Reason & Independence. Within that religious and political independence other beliefs were Not excluded nor judged for their difference of beliefs. Thomas Jefferson explained it best in his support for religious freedom in practical terms: “It does me no injury for my neighbor to believe in twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.” As it is written in the Constitution: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. Thomas Jefferson was saying, his neighbors beliefs should not have an effect on him and his house beliefs. As long as we walk with one another in Love and Respect ALL should be able to reside and enjoy the Blessings of Liberty and Justice for ALL.
Let us be reminded of what Does make America Great and choose to LIVE and Love ourselves and Our Neighbors in that greatness. Remember these words of the Declaration of Independence: 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; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism (the exercise of absolute power, especially in a cruel and oppressive way), it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain (and many other countries) is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
We the People, need to get our heads out of the media and get involved in our communities, our government, and interact with one another in LOVE. We the people Are the majority and just as founding fathers determined “enough is enough” we too need to stand up TOGETHER and Choose a Leader that believes in Democracy, in the foundations of our Great country…that allows US to Lift our Voices, come together, and have a Voice in the direction we are going. If we give our RIGHTS away thru division and lack of involvement we are like sheep in ignorance led astray and will Suffer the consequences of a house that Falls. The rich aiding the rich creating class divisions is not to the advantage of this country. Again no one is perfect but, please open your eyes and ears to hear and choose the Way of Love for ALL mankind. Then Get in the garden and do your part to Restore and Cultivate a harvest that will bear good Fruit for You and Your Neighbor. That Way is the way of LOVE…not Hate, not judgment (leave that to God) and certainly Not division.
