It was Jesus who made this statement – quoted in an earlier post – about Himself, actually:
“Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (John 8: 31-36)
Jesus was referring to the freedom that comes from a life in Him, but I believe this statement applies equally well to the freedom that comes from living in a country that follows His values and His precepts. Until this last election, America was slipping further and further away from the Godly principles of freedom for a nation. Personal freedoms were being eroded, standards were being sabotaged. Standards were being twisted and reshaped out of all recognition. America had lost its standing as a world power.
If there had been another term under the same regime, many believe American democracy would have been gone for good. This would impact not only the USA, but also the rest of the world.
Many intercessors have prayed that the scales would drop from the eyes of those deceived by the Great Deception that has been taking place. It is a blessing that Americans saw the issues, realized the urgency, and made the choice for Freedom.
Stand strong again now, do not be deceived by the enemy’s new displays and threats, and do not be drawn into more division and strife. Above all, don’t believe that to carry on under the existing system would have caused things to improve – far from it. That was the slippery slope. Instead, pray for grace, for everyone. God has said, “I am doing a new thing.” So remember this:
“Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.” ( 1 John 4:4)
Satan is ‘he who is in the world’ – and you can absolutely count on the fact that Jesus is far, far greater. He will bless America again.
“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
