We Are One Nation Under God
[My brother, Tim Sheets, released this message to his congregation yesterday. Every Believer in America needs to take this stand today!]
“The Lord asked me a question this morning. He said, ‘What are you going to do about the golden calf moment that just happened in America?’ Well, I didn’t know what He meant. I knew what the golden calf was in the Book of Exodus. I began to think about what led to the golden calf moment in the Bible. Moses had gone up the mountain to get the Ten Commandments. When he came down, they had made this idol. They had decided they would no longer be under God’s rulership. They had decided not to be under Jehovah, but under Baal. They chose to be under a demon power and they cursed the nation of Israel.
“You may or may not know that the Democratic Convention was held last week. During two caucus meetings, the Pledge of Allegiance was recited, but the sentence, ‘One nation under God,’ was omitted. In doing that, those representatives purposefully stated that they were choosing not to be under God. I ask you, ‘Do you want to be under God or not?’
“The Holy Spirit said to me, ‘Are you going to let that word curse stand?’ I felt that question in every fiber of my being. Are we going to allow deceived people to curse this nation? It will bring a curse. I am personally not going to let that stand. When we hear blasphemy, which is what that is, we must engage. We must rebuke it and ask God to forgive the sin and heal our land.
“Jesus had people coming against Him all the time. He had demons after Him. The Bible details how Beelezebub came after Him. At one point, He asked His disciples, ‘What are people saying about Me?’ They answered, ‘Some say you are John the Baptist that has come back from the dead. Others think You are Elijah that has come back.’ Then He said, ‘Who do you say that I am?’
“I am asking the Church that question today, ‘Who do you say He is?’ Peter had answered, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God!’ Jesus replied, ‘Flesh and blood didn’t reveal that to you. My Father in heaven did.’ Then He said, ‘On this rock, I’ll build My Ekklesia. And the gates of hell will not prevail against it.’ To be the true Ekklesia, you must say who He is!
“Is this nation one nation under God or not? We must raise our voice and declare that it is!
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek… The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.” (Romans 1:16, 18 and 21; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
We, the Ekklesia, must corporately rebuke this curse. Every voice must be heard!
We must state who He really is.
We must state who we really are as the Church and as a nation.
We must break the curse and say, ‘No way is Baal going to rule over us!’ If the Ekklesia forbids it, it will be forbidden. If we allow it, it will curse the nation.
Say, ‘We are one nation under God and we desire Him in America. We acknowledge His love and care, concern and watchfulness over us. We do not reject Him, but we embrace Him and ask His forgiveness for those who have publicly rejected Him.’ We say, ‘They do not speak for us. Forgive them, Lord. They don’t understand what they are doing.’
Declare the Lordship of Jesus over your state and over the whole of the United States!
A prayer you can pray:
We come before You Holy God and righteous Judge. We stand before You King Jesus. You are King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We come as the Ekklesia and repent for the sin of our nation. We are so sorry that You were blasphemed last week at a gathering representing millions of Americans. Forgive us. Forgive this land for this hideous sin. We repent in Jesus’ Name.
With the authority You have given the Ekklesia, we break this curse! No throne of iniquity will rise and curse this land. We bind and forbid this curse to take root in this nation. Lord, we ask You to remove evil leaders that would dare to do this. Remove the evil culture and warped philosophies that reject You and hold people in the bondage of sin. We break demonic doctrine off our government. Break them free from the darkness and let them see Jesus. Bring them into the Kingdom of light.
We say, “We are one nation under God.” We desire You in America. We acknowledge Your love and care, concern and watchfulness over us. We do not reject You, but we embrace You and ask Your forgiveness for those who have publicly rejected You. We say, “They do not speak for us. Forgive them, Lord. They don’t understand what they are doing.” Forgive our sin and heal our land, dear Lord Jesus. Amen.
We are one nation under God and God is welcome in America!
