America’s history is being challenged at every level and even being rewritten by many in order to fit a new mold. These foolish people are worst of all challenging Yahweh, the God of Creation, the God of Israel, the Father of the Savior and Lord of all time, Jesus Christ. These idealogues will eventually fail because of their immorality and paganism. God is supreme over all things and people and will not be denied. “Thus says the LORD to Cyrus His anointed, Whom I have taken by the right hand, To subdue nations before him And to loose the loins of kings; To open doors before him so that gates will not be shut: “I will go before you and make the rough places smooth; I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through their iron bars. I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden wealth of secret places, So that you may know that it is I, The LORD, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name. For the sake of Jacob My servant, And Israel My chosen one, I have also called you by your name; I have given you a title of honor Though you have not known Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other; Besides Me there is no God. I will gird you, though you have not known Me; That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun That there is no one besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other, The One forming light and creating darkness, Causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the LORD who does all these.” Isaiah 45:1-7. NASB.
Perhaps one of the more curious statements in all of God’s Word is found in verse 3, “I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden wealth of secret places, So that you may know that it is I, The LORD, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.” Throughout history people of great and small wealth have hidden away their treasures for ‘a rainy day.’ This is the reference here and I tend to think that this may very well indicate that nothing is hidden or done in secret without God’s knowledge. He will reveal all these things to His Followers for many reasons. The first reason being is that He is God. Those people who think that they are sly enough to be on their own without God are in for a very big ‘let down.’ I pity them and God will judge them. They have become their own worst enemy. This is no secret.
160 years ago a Civil War was fought on our Continent, a war that for practical purposes ended slavery in America. However, for many, this war continues in the hearts and souls of men and women who will not ‘let go.’ Everyone, that war is over and much history has been written concerning it, and apologies have been made and forgiveness sought, but many have yet to stop fighting.
I am convinced that the real problem is not what many claim, but rather, the REAL PROBLEM is the darkness of the hearts of many who refuse to identify the Gospel Message as being the answer, the solution. God, help us all to know this truth.
Jesus is Lord.
