“Son of Man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me” (Ezekiel 3:17).
– The role of a watchman is to warn and teach.
“…But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the Shofar, so that the people are warned; and then the sword comes and takes any one of them, I will hold the watchman responsible for the deaths” (Ezekiel 33:6).
Our Nation has severed the foundational roots in Christianity our Forefathers clearly acknowledged and wrote plainly in our Founding Documents. Americans periodically speak some “language” of freedom under God, but other than in extremely small pockets across our Land, we have lost and replaced the spirit associated with the roots of our Judeo-Christian founding and heritage with anti-Christian, man-oriented, secular management. It can be forcefully argued that a “new faith” has evolved quite opposite of that which inspired our Forefathers to create this new Nation under God. Create a State controlled religion…absolutely not!! But neither did our Founders expect their fellow citizens to divorce God from government! Both church and government were ordained by God, with each area having its’ own mission. For instance…one purpose of the church is to teach and demonstrate grace; government is to demonstrate justice and protection. BOTH institutions are answerable to God who is Sovereign over each.
The representatives from thirteen colonies came together to form a new nation, but one like none before except Israel. These men from various backgrounds met in Philadelphia to chisel documents that reflected the combined beliefs of these men to answer the question before them; “what does it profit a nation if it gains its freedom and ability to rule but rejects the Lord?” Go back and read that statement again! Can you imagine such a discussion on the floor of either the current House of Representatives or the U.S. Senate?! But our Founders did just that, day after day after day, as they created and grew this exceptional nation. Not a country bowing down to graven images. Not a country where Kings ruled or an emperor commanded. Not a country where the governmental powers had unrestrained authority over the individual. Not a country ruled by tyranny on a whim. The newly created United States of America would be a country with a government of and by and for the people; a government by the consent of the people…a union of citizens from various backgrounds, strengths (and weaknesses) but a union – out of many comes union, comes liberty and protection for the individual. A country publicly proclaiming, “After God, the individual comes first!”
But without consistent watchman sounding the alarm if a new course from that of our Founders was steered this exceptional nation began to morph into something it was never, ever intended to become; namely, a nation without God at its’ center core. So the truth in the following statement is manifesting before our eyes; “what happens if a nation gains everything but then rejects the Lord?” The high school kids below “get it!” Watch their video. These modern day fighters for God who are more aligned with their peers of the American Revolutionary Age than you would initially think didn’t say a word, but they SHOUTED a response each of us should seriously ponder, especially those who are choosing to run for elected office should be compelled to answer.
The following video is in response to a senator’s remark; “Where is God in all the tragedy in the world?”
