Lets all walk in Christ’s foot prints.
Every morning I receive email from a website that sends me spiritual messages. Sometimes it is about the day and if its a holiday I get a message pertaining too it. Anyway, this morning I received one like usual but it pertained about my country and it’s birthday. I truly enjoyed it, and want to share it with you all this morning. I have cut and pasted it below from my email. It is sent from a website called Worthy News.
God bless and have a great JULY 4TH!

Kent, restoration of a nation!
Psalms 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
Throughout the United States today, everyone will be celebrating the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence — a document through which leaders of the colonies in the New World broke free from the King of England.
The declaration begins: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
While revisionist historians are working hard to remove any trace of Christian/Biblical ideals from the foundations of America, today’s celebration finds its basis in a foundational document which appeals to the authority of a Divine Creator, one whom most of the founding fathers fully believed to have been the author and main subject of the Holy Bible, and who was the guarantor of certain “inalienable rights”. So the Fourth of July – more than just a celebration of independence, ought also to be a day which recognizes God’s participation in the nation’s birth.
I’ve read and heard all kinds of advice about how America ought to be transformed, while a simple recognition of God’s covenant offer to a nation goes ignored. The words found in 2 Chronicles 7:14 could be claimed and applied to any nation, but particularly one whose foundational documents and institutions have drawn their inspiration substantially from Biblical monotheism. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
IF we truly want to see healing brought to any nation, then this conditional covenant is for US and the restoration of our land will require our part in the covenant: humility, prayer and repentance, so that God can forgive our sin and heal our land!
Kent, true restoration and healing only comes through true repentance and God’s grace! With so much work to be done — may restoration begin with us!
Your family in the Lord with much agape love,

A fulfillment of time
Anything that you choose to partake in, man made or man organized of this earth and not of God. Time spent watching a TV program or better yet time spent viewing the TV.Going to shop for those cables for that computer? Need a extra pair of shoes that match that outfit? Spend time reading, but was it to build or fix something, but what is that something? Was that something to make things prettier, more pleasing to the self eye or of this earth, friends that come over. Does any of this fall into this scripture?
18)Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, 19)And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. 20)Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, 21)(Touch not; taste not; handle not; 22)Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men? 23)Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
1)If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2)Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3)For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
I say yes. Maybe you need to improve and I do too. No not maybe, but yes we must and not tomorrow for that is a evil person talking that is of this world.
