The Church: 2 Chronicles 7:14 states, “If my people, which are called by my name,(all those called by the name of Jehovah, God and His son, Jesus) 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.” Matt 18: 19, “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.”
First Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, God, Himself calls us a nation.”
Most churches consider themselves as a body that comes together to worship the Lord and study scripture with others that believe, act, and have like practices. Such as baptism, or certain doctrine that unite them together.
But God, Himself said we are a nation, a nation within a nation. We may live in as some called, a non Christian nation, but we are a nation founded on Christian principles, claimed by the most of our founding fathers, which claimed Christian faith or attended Christian churches. There is a Christian nation within this secular liberal America and that nation is the church of Jesus Christ.
That is why no matter what comes against America, selective judgment, bad economic news, or natural disaster, God will not leave nor forsake his nation of believers within America.
It is time for the nation of believes to lay aside manmade traditions that put barriers between the faithful and join together to form the end time truth army that will rise above political, social, and economic challenges, and become the Nation that God has called us to be, a strong nation of Biblical. Christ centered, men and women, the body of Christ, The Church.
