“My will is that His will be done” & the “Coalition for a Principled Republic.”
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[c] 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:4-9
At the end of October, grassroots leaders and activists from around the nation, held a meeting in Marysville, Ohio, just northwest of Columbus. Sincere and serious-minded activists from Ohio, Indiana, Iowa, California, New York, Connecticut, and North Carolina gathered together in rural Ohio to create a foundation for a “Coalition for a Principled Republic,” otherwise known as CPR.
Many of the grassroots leaders attending were in agreement that the American people are the losers in the current political system in America. As Dr. Ben Carson exclaimed: it is “We the People” vs. the Government Elitists, or the Globalists, or the Marxists in government. Especially people of faith are currently inspired by President Donald Trump’s efforts in many spheres of the U.S. They view the corruption in America as a crisis in moral and religious leadership. One vision of CPR is to heal the hearts of Americans who have been damaged by false leaders who have left or strayed away from God and the founding principles and values and ideals. It is those ideals at the heart of the founding documents, and those values originating in God’s guidance to humanity that is at the heart of the “Coalition for a Principled Republic.”
The ideals examined by the leaders gathered in Ohio were viewed as rooted in the biblical principles in God’s word. A core of what CPR is all about was expressed by Pastor Earl Wallace of Liberty Christian Fellowship who gave a presentation on the “Biblical Basis of the Bill of Rights.” Our common belief is that America was founded with God’s guidance, and our country was founded upon the application of the Bible to civil governance. Pastor Wallace believes America needs another Great Awakening in order to restore the United States to its origin point.
Church trustee, Kevin Anderson, opened the doors of God’s Country Church to this band of true patriots even though he had never met most of them, and knew not what to expect, based only upon the concept presented in preliminary long-distance communication. He acted upon faith that it was the right thing to do. This week our message is from Kevin Anderson, and he presents in his message what is important to him. It is well worth reading.
These words are being sent to you as part of the “David Project,” which commenced based on genuine inspiration from Heavenly Father. The “David Project” is intended to shine light unto our paths, as it was written: “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18 – KJV Psalm 29:18
The words are being freely offered, and it is hoped they may spark a deeper life of faith, if readers can receive the messages of light into their hearts, especially if they are they may be the only faith-filled words that are received during the week.
May we humble ourselves, seek His face, repent, and turn from wickedness – even if that may mean one’s failure to put into practice Jesus’ command to love our Heavenly Father, and to love our friends and neighbors as Jesus requested of us. Let that love shine forth!
“My will is that His will be done”
By Kevin Anderson
God’s will be done in earth as it is in heaven… Mathew 6:10, KJV, reads “in earth” not “on earth”. What is the difference?
Humans are earthen vessels, made from dust or clay (earth); as is pottery (vessels). There are some made unto honor (to carry God’s will), others to dishonor (carry away waste). 2 Co 4:6-7, 2Tim 2:20, Rom 9:21.
Some are willing to submit to God’s will, some refuse. As I seek to do God’s will I wrestle daily to resist doing my own thing. “I think” is often my favorite starting phrase when explaining why I am doing what I am doing. Do I think or consider what God thinks? What if I started saying “God thinks I should…” ?
I have a story to tell, it is a long story that you would not read so I will not tell it all but give a summary of it.
I hope what is in heaven will also be in earth.
There is a building that sets in the open farmland of central Ohio. It has been there over 170 years. I do not know who built it but what I know it has always been a building for congregations to meet in and honor our Lord. The name on the door has changed many times but now remains God’s Country Church. I know the lady that gave it this current name. She fought hard to keep it open so it could be used for those who would come seeking the Lord. Years ago she married a young man who is half her age. Then in time it was to be that he would be the pastor in this building and was for twenty years, until a year ago. I never saw such dedication of two people for the work they did. Though not perfect in their efforts they sought to do The Lord’s will.
Now what happened this past year or two is tragic, or maybe not because we do not know what will be; we only know what was and is at the moment. The pain of division came between husband and wife, then the families, then the congregation. Most all stopped coming to the building so the flock is now scattered. This nearly left the building being put up for sale. If it sold it may have been turned to a residence, and the proceeds to help fund divorcement. If nothing was done the property could have been left to the state to decide, which means probably sitting empty.
I was told by the Spirit of our Father to show up and keep the doors open. I have been there with a brother during this time of litigation. With this brother we kept the faith that God’s will be done. We showed up even when the locks were changed keeping us meeting outside in the nearby picnic shelter which is part of the property. As time passed and through much cost for legal counsel, the court ruled it cannot be sold or used as a personal residence. We were granted keys to the building and stewardship of the property for the Lord, and it has a purpose.
At times we might be asked, “what is God’s will?” Many will respond with the words “I think” meaning there is no real answer except one’s own thought. Personally I can only hear “show up” concerning the church. I know one other who hears the same thing and we show up Sundays at eleven a.m. hoping others will hear the same message. On some occasions, there have been some who stopped by the church “showing up” maybe only to encourage our obedience increasing our trust what the Lord says. Even once we received a donation. We view these things to be encouraging to continue to do that which is God’s will: to show up. This we do, believing our faith is real. If we are fools, then let us be fools for Christ Jesus.
This past weekend some people, earthen vessels, showed up from the west coast, east coast, north, and south. This was not a large group nor are they those who stand out so that they would draw attention attracting many others but they came with a message which they did not know until showing up. Their reason was to gather to form and strengthen relationships and discuss CPR for a cursed nation. I believe we all discovered their real reason why they came to God’s Country Church, was to “show up” and that was the testimony of each of why they were there, that they needed to “Show Up.” This is all the Lord is asking of us and as we congregate in faith by coming with no other purpose other than to do the Lord’s will.
Can you believe this short story and think that God is not involved in an old building and earthen vessels that He has preserved so that somehow His will be done?
If you show up when called because showing up was your call maybe you will be a witness to His will in action.
Now it is true all had done their homework having studied making themselves prepared to show up. We had things to share and were prepared to share with one and other. All were encouraged and inspired by what was shared and learned… 2 Timothy 2:15. However, the purpose is formed by our Father and the command was to show up which was His will. Now that we know to show up then we will trust we find brethren. Thus we are few but many when we show up when we hear the call.
Do the work the Lord has given you and be faithful to watch over the things the Lord provided you. So by keeping in good faith and in company of those who will watch over thee, these are brethren in our Lord.
