THE REAL WORK BEGINS WITH EACH OF US. ARE YOU READY?

Many have opined and prayed for several years for a miracle for America. Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan is not a description of what we should expect any one man will do. I am sick of people announcing that they are going to sit back, watch, and give the man a fair chance of making America great again. Frankly, this slogan is not a referendum for one person to accomplish. It is NOT a referendum for one political party. In case you did not understand what is supposed to happen in America now, let me explain it to you. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN – OR THEY WON’T. Time will tell.

It is high time the American people took back their country. To make America great again, will require a LOCAL EFFORT from coast to coast. Requiring every city in America pushing a winning agenda to state governors, state legislatures, and federally to both Houses of Congress. We have a President-Elect who will fight for our American jobs, American business endeavors, and all American families. WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO BE READY IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS TO MAKE KNOWN THE AGENDA WE WANT. If you want to start a business, already own a business, or work for a business, you need to tell our government what it is your service or industry needs to be successful, and provide jobs for all who want to be a part of THE AMERICAN DREAM.

Whether you are a farmer, shoemaker, clothes maker, cement maker, homemaker or builder of homes, computer maker, hospital, own rent homes or apartments, run a school or are a home-schooler, dress maker, pie baker, furniture builder, etc., etc., etc. YOU NEED TO LET YOUR POLITICIANS KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO BE — SUCCESSFUL – TO BRING OUR INDUSTRIES AND JOBS HOME!!!

Every American should start looking at what we import from other countries, and ask ourselves how do we start making these things in America.
AMERICANS NEED TO BAND TOGETHER TO TELL OUR POLITICIANS WHICH REGULATIONS AND LAWS HURT AMERICAN BUSINESS, AMERICAN INDUSTRY, AMERICAN FAMILIES, AND WHY.

Americans need to be networking on a scale that hasn’t been seen since before computers made us all lazy. Business used to be conducted at social enterprises such as golf clubs, Elks Clubs, Moose Clubs, Veterans Clubs, Kiwanis, Lions, PTA, Alumni, Rotary, Chamber of Commerce, Every Town Council meeting should be packed to the rafters, Petroleum, Pharma, Medical, School Board Meetings, Business Networking International, Women In Business, Convention & Business Bureaus for every trade and service industry, OPTIMISTS for crying out loud!, Think Tanks for every industry that exists or has left our nation, Local Merchants Associations, CHURCHES, etc. etc. etc.

It is shameful how membership in social clubs has dwindled to almost extinction since the computer made us all social couch potatoes. Does your town have a Junior League? Does anyone remember what it was all about? The Junior League is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism in any city, or town. Thriving cities can be gauged by the volume of active social and charitable associations.

John and I dressed to the 9’s Saturday night and attended a charity event. I haven’t felt that much alive in a very long time. We were in a ballroom full of people enjoying dinner, dancing, silent and live auctions with one thing in mind – raising enough money to make a difference in the lives of many people. The Health Alliance of Clinton County financially assisting with health-related needs in the extended community. We were so pleased to be able to give – and we are seniors on a fixed income. A community that involves itself in fulfilling the needs of the community on a personal level is an indicator of a thriving community. Instead of the government deciding how to spend your hard-earned dollars for “charity” (often not actually helping anyone in need), it is important for the well-being of all citizens to be personally involved in helping others.

The quandary in “Making America Great Again” is the double nature of money. Spending money – spreading it around locally – is what every economy needs to grow. At the same time, Americans will need to spend wisely to keep our families’ hearth and home safe from going under as we re-build Americas industries.

We must return America to that which our moral compass was anchored in when Washington and his Congress dedicated America to our Christian God. Christian Americans (80+% of population) got out and voted on November 8 in a unified effort to return America to its moral origins, which will in turn return America to prosperity, and God’s protection. We must abandon Secular Christianity rooted in the wrong idea of other religions being the same as ours. We must return to Biblical Christianity, and the Gospel regarding Jesus, to navigate America back on solid moral ground. The real work begins with each of us. Are you ready?

OURS TO LOSE

As I study the first 2 chapters of Acts, I believe that the early Church, the Body of Christ, met in the homes of Christians, and in local Jewish Temples. I imagine that just as when America was young, the faithful knew each other by family, by name, and by faith. When family and friends worship together, it is more likely they will help each other through the joys and crisis of life.  Such Christian communities describe fellowship that would put a huge part of today’s government out of business. As Peter told the Jewish community, the faithful are born again in Christ – Jews, and Gentiles:

KJV Acts 2:38 – 40 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.”

Today, America’s population is barely aware of Christians being persecuted around the world; because the secularization of the faithful in America is well under way. We find ourselves swept up in the granddaddy “untoward generation” perhaps of all time. In Revelation, in the letter to Pergamos, Jesus tells us that he hated the “deeds” and “doctrines” of the Nicolaitans. Hate is a strong word, and Christians should not ignore the dire warning authored by our Lord. Pergamos is the church married to the world. The Nicolaitans had one foot in the occult pagan religions, and one foot in Christianity. It is an important lesson to any Christian; but in today’s world, where many Christians have not done “the first works” (Reference: Rev. 2:5), they may not even be aware of their dilemma. They may not be aware that they have one foot in occult pagan religions, and one foot in Christianity.

The message that came upon my heart and mind is this: Beware of any ministry (large or small) that is married to the world. To discern such a thing requires Christian Biblical study, Christian maturity, observation, and as always in such matters – prayer. Christian fellowship should be centered on God’s Word, worshipping God, and when filled with the Holy Spirit Christians are changed and are aware that they are no longer tied to this world.

One helpful thought. Christ brings believers to Him. We are correctly involved when we ask the Lord to use us as He will. We primarily encourage others by example. We each have our own unique talents and ways in which The Lord helps us to His service.

Those who brag that they brought “X” numbers of mankind to Christ are married to the world in the vanity of their own works. Such vanity is just one part of the denominational problem – mankind adding to God’s Word, and taking away from God’s Word, as man sees fit – twisting the scriptures into unrecognizable doctrine, and thus intermingling the ways of paganism and the occult, which has been the deception, and division of denominational thinking for centuries.

There is only one correct translation of God’s Word. Over 2,000 denominations have divided those that should be the unified Body of Christ. People often pick a denomination that has the set of man-made rules that they like the best, and many churches are behaving badly to bring in anyone who can put money in their collection plate. Sadly, at the other end of that scale, many choose to not participate in denominational churches, but are Christians outside of fellowship. Cafeteria style, false Christianity have turned off Christians in many instances, because these Christians are candidly seeking Bible based churches that are becoming the exception and not the rule.

Meantime in schools, businesses, and government, Secularists are banning the use of the word Jesus; because there is power in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. They also ban The Ten Commandments, because the power of an electorate that is self-governing in endeavoring to live by The Ten Commandments, in and by our Christian faith, would result in elected officials governing within America’s faith for fear of being rejected. It wouldn’t matter if the elected were faithful, or pretending to be faithful – the positive result in living among the faithful majority would be the same. As I proved out in prior 2012 commentary http://www.webcommentary.com/php/ShowArticle.php?id=hwaltersj&date=120810

the entire “separation of church and state” is a false argument that wrongly changed America’s foundation.

Is America at a crossroads? Is America already lost? Is America on the brink of amazing revival? I do not know the answer to those questions, but they are valid questions that the faithful should be asking themselves. Should America fail, We The People will only have ourselves to blame, because the failure was of the faltered faith of Christians who leave their Christianity at the door to their work, at the door to their schools, at the door to their public life, and even at the door to many of today’s secular churches. Are you living your Christian faith 24/7/365; or are you leaving your Christian faith at the door to your life?
