This Is Where We Need to Begin

 
COMMON SENSE: To be different than non-Christians, we must allow the Lord to teach us to live by our regenerated spirits. This is the one we received when we invited Christ to live and reign in our hearts. It is by the implanted life of the Holy Spirit that we are meant to live, not by our old, unregenerated life.

Our goal is to transform our lives into something that has eternal value. We want to experience God’s power, His wisdom and His love—not just on special occasions during the week, but moment-to-moment. The problem we face is how to get from where we are to where we need to be.

Achieving this goal may seem like pie-in-the-sky utopian optimism, but it isn’t. It can be done and must be done for us to have any impact upon the world in which we live. Unless we do the necessary work, the Children of Darkness, empowered by the god of this world, will continue to destroy our nation.

Living the abundant life must become our norm rather than our infrequent exception. If we are marginal Christians, we will never be the salt we need to be to influence our deteriorating society. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if a life of love, joy, peace, and patience ceased to be the goal we strive to achieve but became the routine way we lived each day of our lives? Of course, it would.
When Christ said, “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly” (John 10:10b, NAS), His statement was intended it to be real. This is how He wants us to live. So, if the Lord believes that experiencing the abundant life should be our normal experience, which He does, shouldn’t each of us believe this as well?

If we dismiss what He asserted as being an unattainable, impossible goal, doesn’t this mean we are calling Him a liar? When first introduced to the concept of living the abundant life, shortly after you invited Christ into your life, didn’t you believe that living the abundant life was intended to be literally true?

Now, years later, when your experience hasn’t matched your expectations, have your beliefs about experiencing the abundant life morphed into something that seems more practical and less attainable? This is precisely what most Christians believe, based on their life experiences. Because they do, Satan has been successful with his deception that the abundant life is otherworldly. He has convinced Christians that his lie is true.
This has allowed him to achieve his goal of neutralizing our impact in our nation. Having become used to being defeated by the Progressives, we have accepted this as being normal, which it definitely is not. Defeat at the hands of the Children of Darkness is never normal nor should it ever be acceptable as being normal. Accepting defeat as being normal is never God’s will. Such thinking renders us vulnerable to the schemes and wiles of satanic forces.

Retaking the USA: From Darkness and Depravity

Stand Firm Against Progressivism Knowing profound change must occur, if we are to survive as the land of the free and the home of the brave, it is clear that a group of patriotic Christians and others of faith must be strong enough, committed enough and determined enough to make a stand. Only then can the course of American history be altered, precisely like it was in the Revolutionary era.What is needed, however, isn’t simply a renewal in patriotism. Our need is more fundamental than this. If we want change that will last, if we want our core values to be restored, if we want our way of life to flourish once again, we are the ones who will need to change—not the Progressives. Being degenerate by nature, most of them are incapable of changing—not for the better anyway.This is not true for us. If we change, America will change. If we don’t, the Children of Darkness will secure their victory and the United States we have known will cease to exist. To survive and once again thrive, we must embrace the fact that Christ placed us in this position. It is for such a time as this that we have been groomed. It is up to us, ordinary people, to stand strong for the USA. Nothing less than a renewed commitment to godliness will accomplish the goal we desire. This is why Retaking the USA: From Darkness and Depravity has been written. If you read the book, it will change you forever—no doubt about it.
