Imagine with me for a moment if George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson never existed. Imagine history without Abraham, Moses, King David or the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. Where would we be if these men did not exhibit leadership with courage and sacrifice on the behalf of the people? Where would we be if they had not loved both seen and unseen, resulting in now having both natural and spiritual freedoms throughout the world? I can tell you, we would all be slaves to tyranny in every form (Hebrews 11)!
We can see from the history they wrote, that the evils they faced were powerless over their endeavors because they had their eyes fixed on “The Author and the Finisher of their faith” (Hebrews 12:2), who said that He did not give us a spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7)! The Author promised that He would make them more then conquerors (Romans 8:37), gave them power of all of the works of the enemy (Luke 10:19), and promised that He would be an enemy unto all of their enemies and an adversary unto all of their adversaries (Exodus 23:22).
The Author answered King David in his distress by saying that the “kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.” (Psalm 2:2-5)
The Author also promised that He would not fail one word of His blood-bought covenant concerning His people (Psalm 89:34).
Last week, I was out in the state of Georgia on tour partaking with national leaders at a “Restoring our Promise” conference. I had the opportunity to see with my own eyes the fact that God is now sending foreigners into this country to warn us about the similarities and signs of dictators when they take the reigns of a nation: all of the way from the media’s control, to the pushing of a state-run message over and over again, to the attack on Christianity, euthanasia, to the disarmament of the people in their respective countries and more. All of these in fact which were similar circumstances to what the above-mentioned men of God were dealing with in their times of testing.
While at this conference, we heard and saw much about the evils and fears of an enemy that means to prevail. We need to keep in mind that this is not our history in any sense of the word. Those who went before us did not magnify the enemy, they magnified the power of a Faithful God on their behalf, and every one of their enemies knew it.
Well, I do my best by the sermon I am living, by offering the faithfulness and hope I have seen demonstrated through Christ to others who are in such a hopeless state.
Furthermore, my friends, you can find nowhere in scripture God failing a faithful man or woman either in life or in death.
I have heard said, with a negative connotation, “There is no worse death than the end of hope.” The end of hope brings people to a state of despair. Despair is the fruit of a people that turn their back on God.
On a positive note: Hope is what you do with the truth that has been given.
But where, I ask, is your hope?
“And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.” – Jeremiah 29:13-14
The awesomeness of our Mighty God through Jesus Christ is the fact that His Word prevails in every given circumstance, and no problem or circumstance is too great for our God – even the problems we are now facing as a nation.
