America’s Light

So we are told that our Constitution is a living document and it is subject to change. Or, maybe we need to see it a different way. Maybe, we should see it as a light we all live by. And that light should be trimmed to shine brighter all across the land of America.

That would mean that the Constitution stands as it is. We do not change it, add to it or take from it, no more than we would our Father’s Law. But all the laws, rules and regulations created since our founding, is what should go. What was good for people a hundred years ago may not even be necessary today.

We do not break our foundation. We do not take and destroy what we have spent years building our lives on. If we do destroy that foundation–even if it seems like a little difference in opinion–, then our world will be turned upside down. That little crack in America’s foundation will cause our Great nation to fall.

Our Father counseled us to trim our light, true, but He also said to “keep” His Commandments and forsake not the law of your Mother. This means, yeah, what mankind establishes needs renewed every so often, but God gave us rules to live by and a Constitution that set us up as a free people.

If this great Nation, the only one like it, is to survive then we must stand our ground on both our Spiritual and Physical foundation. We are a people who believe in freedom, liberty and all the good stuff, and we used to have a God that prospered, kept and provided for us.

Jesus is The Word, John 1:1-5
The Word God spoke: Exodus 20:1
The Word God wrote: Deuteronomy 4:13
and The Word God made flesh John 1:14. He is our example of The Trinity.

Yes, those Ten Commandments is Jesus. When God tells us in Deut.6:8-9 to bind and wear His Word He is placing us in His Son, Jesus.

Jesus keeps the custom by asking those who love Him to “keep” His Words even as He kept His Father’s. So if you obey God, and love Jesus, one would “keep” both the law (Ten Commandments) and the testimony (Sermon on the Mount) as instructed in Deut.. He wants to be in this country, but now it is up to the individual.

That God has been removed from our public property, schools, court rooms etc.. There is more private property than government. Maybe we can show Him how much we want Him by letting Him see, we know Him, and we know His voice. If we will stand for God, then He will stand for us. We defend that which we believe in. Isn’t that our God and our Country?

What will Americans choose to do? Roll with the flow, or stand their ground? That choice is yours.

One more law could be the straw that broke the camel’s back, or maybe the tail that took down the saints.

Oh my!!!

God is not in competition with the Constitution of America, but the law of men who put themselves not only above God’s law but even those they establish. After all…laws are made for you, not them.

God laid down His Law, Jesus kept them, the Apostles kept them, and we should keep them. Jesus Christ not only kept them, but He shall see to it that they are observed. God’s law, Jesus’ law and Christ’s law. For you see it is the same as one saying the federal law, the state law, and the local laws. They all shall be observed.

Just because the state set it’s law, doesn’t mean the federal has been done away with. Neither would the local laws fulfill the state laws. They should cooperate with one another, not contradict one another. Yet they all bring you closer to God and your neighbour.

No, God’s law cannot save you, but then that doesn’t mean it is to no avail. His Words are life, remember, we have to make it through some tough times. We face some rather ruthless opponents, therefore needing some protection. God saved us when He sent His Son Jesus to die for our sin. We show our love by doing The Word….following and doing what God says rather than men.

That means we are to do the whole Word of God, not just the parts we like. One must remember: God set down the Law, Our Lord enforces those laws. Yet since Jesus is God, He too sets His own laws. Then Christ shall enforce God’s, Jesus’ and their own law, for Christ too is God. So we are expected to DO THE WHOLE LAW. To do THE WORD OF GOD, all of it.

Remember, we will either follow God’s Law into Life, or follow men’s laws right off of the cliff. Will you make it through?
