The LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS

Do you feel it? It’s cold. It’s overwhelming. It’s ugly. It’s hateful. It spews lies and hides truth. It calls it “my truth” instead of what is eternally true. It pits people against each other based on things that are lies. It says we are divided and broken beyond repair.

There are times in the world’s history of brokenness beyond repair. Extreme measures were deemed, but only the LORD deems those, not man. Not any man. Only GOD will bring extreme measures. For now, and I pray forever, we are a nation – Under God. GOD! The one true God. You can believe what you want, but the Bible is very clear. There is only ONE, TRUE God. He will not be mocked by anyone. Anyone! What God hates, we should hate. What God loves, we should love.

Yet  it’s here. THE DARKNESS is here. It’s all around us. Do you feel it? I do. Abundantly. And it’s overwhelming. Yet, my heart has hope.

You may remember, DARKNESS has been around almost forever. Forever. Yet, there is one. ONE who overcomes THE DARKNESS. There is one who is the light shining amongst it.  There is the ONE who is called THE LIGHT and he brings it to overcome and split the darkness.

You may remember that day thousands of years ago. He prayed over and over to his father. His burden was so great, so heavy that he sweated drops of blood. BLOOD. He knew the story. He had written the story. THE DARKNESS would overtake him. THE LIGHT would go out. OUT. THE LIGHT of the world would go out. He knew it. He asked for a way out, but ultimately, he knew the truth. THE LIGHT must go out.

And so on that day, that Friday many thousands of years ago, THE DARKNESS reigned. THE DARKNESS had fooled them all into believing that THE LIGHT was a threat and must die. Reminds me of today. In many ways, DARKNESS reigns.

And on that day, thousands of years ago, physical darkness overcame the land for three hours. The day had become night. Physical darkness had come just as DARKNESS overshadowed THE LIGHT.

But THE LIGHT. THE LIGHT. He knew the story. He knew the ending. He knew the power.

THE DARKNESS could not hold him! Every chain was broken! The Gates of Hell held no authority over him. THE LIGHT came to life and shattered THE DARKNESS forever! Forever! Just because it may not be “your truth” doesn’t mean that it is NOT true. Read the Bible, friend. Read it! It tells the truth! Jesus is THE WAY – the TRUTH – and THE LIFE. He is THE LIGHT of the world that no one can extinguish. EVER. He is alive today and he reigns! With that alone, we have hope!

THE DARKNESS we have in America right now is real. You can feel it. And it’s downright terrifying. But, I know and I pray that, as a nation Under God, the sleeping giants will awake and remember who they belong to. They will remember who inspired our founding fathers to oppose tyranny and one rule to birth a nation full of opportunity for people. Opportunity for ALL people. A chance AND a country to make something for themselves and those they love. A nation under God.

No, it’s not a perfect nation, far from it, but IT IS the nation that God breathed life into for his people. IT IS the nation that people all over the world want to come to so that they can have opportunity for themselves. And it brings people from all over the world to hear the one, true gospel. THE ONE, TRUE GOSPEL! Praise Jesus!

The Bible tells us that God is looking to bring all back to him, and when they come here, to America, they can hear it. THE TRUTH! We CANNOT let THE DARKNESS overcome. We must share this good news of Jesus in a FREE nation of opportunity for ALL.

FEAR NOT, my friends, THE LIGHT is overcoming the world! THE LIGHT is overcoming THE DARKNESS! THE LIGHT will bless this nation as the sleeping giants awake and say unabashedly:

“WE ARE A NATION UNDER GOD AND WE WILL PUT HIM FRONT AND CENTER IN OUR PRAYERS, IN OUR ANTHEMS, IN OUR PLEDGES, IN OUR HOUSES, IN OUR CHURCHES, IN OUR GOVERNMENT, IN OUR LEADERS, and IN OUR FAMILIES!”

AND WE WILL NOT BE ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OR AMERICA!

Join me in praying for our nation. Join me in voting FOR AMERICA, not tyranny. Join me in loving what God loves. Now, Let’s Roll!

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes…” – Romans 1:16

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33
