Text Box: America, America!

America the Beautiful
Written by: Katherine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!

America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassion'd stress
A thorough fare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness.

America! America!
God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law.

O beautiful for heroes prov'd
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!

America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev'ry gain divine!

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears.

America! America!
God shed his grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

Volume 14, Issue 7, July 2013

Text Box: America is blessed nation.  We have lived under the grace of God for over 200 years.  Our nation today has turned from the God of the Bible and we must once again place our trust in the God who has given us our freedom as a nation, established us in liberty and given us a desire to liberate those who were oppressed.  America has fallen from “trusting in God” to become a nation that lives as if we don’t need or want Him to have any part in our great nation. We cannot go the route of nation Israel whose leaders were described in the Old Testament as those who “did evil in the sight of the Lord.”  There was a great price to pay for Israel’s sin and there is going to be a great price to pay for the sin of America.

The true church of Jesus Christ across the whole nation must fall upon her knees to plead for forgiveness of our sin as 2 Chronicles 7:14 calls for us to do. “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.”

If we want our nation to honor God then the Church of Jesus Christ must be righteous before Him or the nation will not have a moral conscience and voice with

credibility.  We so desperately need the grace of the Lord God Almighty to sweep over our land from sea to shining sea.  It will take you and me weeping over our nation and its sin before God will turn His judgment from America.  If our nation keeps going the way it is we will suffer the judgment of a righteous God or He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah for their destruction.  In His mercy our God has offered His to us through the shed blood of His precious Son, Jesus Christ, when He died on the cross at Calvary.  May we, the children of God at North Anderson Baptist Church, humble ourselves before the mighty hand of God that revival might start here and sweep the land so that our repentance will catch the eye and ear of the Father that He might forgive and heal our land!  Will you bow with me at the altar as we go before the throne of God on a special service of June 30th?   Our nation needs the Christians to stand in the gap for her.  Then will you come prepared for our celebration of “In God We Trust” as we worship Him in a special service July 7th?
