The Way Forward America from Mike Odeh's blog

Only the Lord can build a nation! Only the Lord has the power to keep a nation together in love! No man can do anything tangible for a fellow man except by the grace of God! 

America, look unto Jesus! We can protest all we can against the Anthem or flag, only the Lord can grant a long term solution to these issues that ail us! They are different dimensions to a problem be it individual or national, there is the physical, there is the spiritual! 

If you have not secured a victory spiritually you labor in vain physically! The civil rights movement triumphed because the Church fronted that movement! Men prayed as much as they protested peacefully! The movement was fronted by spiritual, godly, prayerful men and women of God!  Meetings for the movement were held in the presence of God in Churches!  Funds raised in churches to support the movement! Men and women gathered and prayed in Churches for victory!  And the LORD granted them victory! 

Social injustice is not the only issue confronting America as a nation!  Except we want to be hypocritical!  Who is taking a knee for the millions of babies been murdered through Abortion, annually?  If those lives don't matter to you they matter to God! 

Racism is not the only thing that is threatening the continuity of the Union as it is!  Who is taking a knee for the lives that are been murdered by gang members, blacks killing blacks, killing of innocent people, high rate of homicide?  Who is taking a knee for foster kids been adopted into homes where dad is a man and mom is a man vice versa? Are they not been taken advantage of? Who is taking a knee for marriage, an institution sanctioned by God to be between a man and a woman, , we have commonized to be between man and man or woman and woman! Are we smarter than God? 

When a nation turns her back against God, she turns into the crude embrace of the devil!  When a nation turns her back against God, she turns her back on love into the cruel embrace of hate! 

When a nation says, "away with God ", she is saying, "come in Satan." Do you now complain when you begin to see the works of the Devil flourish in the land?

If you seek to get rid of a tree that is destroying the foundation of your house and roof, the long-term solution is to root it out! If you choose to cut one or two branches off the tree, that my friend is only a temporal fix!

Take a knee but please, lets be grateful to God that we still have a flag flying. Lets also be grateful for those who gave their freedom and lives so we can have ours seating down watching tv or playing football and getting paid good money! When you are complaining about not having a shoe to wear they is someone next door who does not have a leg!

Take a knee to protest, how about taking a knee in repentance to God and intercession for the land! If a quarter of this nation can bow their knees in repentance and intercession for this land, change will come! 

If Church leaders can mobilize their congregations to stand in the gap and intercede for the land, the sun of righteousness will shine again! 

But I don't know if the Church will heed such clarion call! We have become so prosperous we don't need to stress out interceding for no one! But when our bank accounts begin to diminish we go out full force to mobilize our congregation to refill the accounts! Fund raising we are very effective but interceding for the land is too much inconvenience! We have hours daily to watch movies, then vacations, then another fun activity in the Church and another fun activity! While the land is headed down to the pit of hell! Call for prayer meetings, only a handful if any will show up! Call for some Church dinner well, well, you have to get extra seats!

When you are pointing a finger at someone as the cause of your woes at least three of your fingers are pointing back at you! We are quick in blaming our leaders for  our problems but we forget that our leaders are selected from amongst us! Our leaders are a reflection of who we are as a people! In Bible times when the Isrealites turned their backs on God and became vile, it reflected in their leadership: bad leaders! When they changed their ways in repentance, it reflected in their leadership: godly leaders!

The ball is exclusively in our court! What are we gonna do? Same way we "kicked " God out of our schools depriving our children of a future without God, same way we can repent and put Him back into the affairs of our lives and endeavors!

There is hate in the land! God is love! When you kick God out you kick love out and get stuck with hate. 

Trump is not the problem, we all are! But God has the solution! Shall we approach Him in humility, repentance through Christ or shall we continue in pride, arrogance, hypocrisy , hate and sin into annihilation? 

America it is that time again to choose Whom you will serve but as for me and my house we will serve the Lord!
