By Mary Jo Williams (Dave asked me to write this month’s article since he is preaching in Florida)

Those, of course, are lyrics from our national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, written by Francis Scott Key.

With the Fourth of July right around the corner, we wonder, ‘What is happening to the land that we love so much?’

Have we, “The Church,” allowed doors to be opened that are attracting so much of what can only be described as “enemy infiltration?”

With the silencing of common-sense voices by the American Media…

  • The exploiting of young children…
  • Widespread production of pornography…
  • Thousands of deaths by fentanyl use and other drugs…
  • The breakdown of the traditional family…
  • And now the move toward a global government and a digital dollar…
  • …and the list could go on and on.

This is NOT the picture that God intended for our wonderful nation.

Genesis 1:28
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Have we abdicated the high position to which God has called us? The battle is certainly raging now for the very soul of our Nation. I am very concerned!!!!

Edmond Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

Let that not be so of us! But what can we do?

WHAT CAN WE DO?

First: We must Realize who our real enemy is. (Ephesians 6:12)

Remember that we are fighting spirits in the unseen world and not against flesh and blood. We must use spiritual weapons of war—tools like intercessory prayer. (1 Timothy 2:1-4)

Second: Realize Who we are as a Church, and who you are as a believer and follower of Jesus.

We are the mighty Spirit-filled Church of God. And you, as a believer are God’s ambassador on Earth who represents the Kingdom of Heaven.

2 Corinthians 5:20
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Be fully convinced that you are here at “such a time as this” on purpose with a great purpose” and thoroughly believe that you have ALL the resources needed to wage a very successful warfare!

Now that’s exciting! Look what Jesus said about our authority in Matthew 18:

Matthew 18:18-19
18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

Know this: You are the righteousness of God in Christ! (Philippians 3:9)

Third: You and I must be prepared.

Don’t allow the devil’s taunts to make you feel worthless and fragile.

You are strong and mighty.

You are the devil’s worst nightmare because God has given you and all genuine believers His authority to use His weapons on the Earth. (Luke 10:19, Ephesians 6:10)

My friend and partner, be strong and put on the full armor of God as Ephesians 6 tells us. (Ephesians 6:13)

Please read through verse 18 that tells you all about the armor that you’re to wear! Child of God, you are mighty and called to pull down strongholds in the lives of people in the grasp of the enemy’s lies and propaganda. We really can stop the infiltration of evil into this nation.

Dave’s ministry friend, Hugh Rosenburg, pastored a great church in Cincinnati years ago and became concerned about the impact of smut on the community. He prayed, enlisted intercessors, and followed the Holy Spirit’s instructions. All pornography became illegal in the city.

Fourth: One of the most powerful tools we have for winning is our tongue? How are we using our tongues; our words. (Proverbs 18:21)

In the beginning, God spoke and created the heavens and the earth. Dave has a teaching series that repeatedly says, “Words create.” We are creating with our words! Are we creating life or death? (Matthew 17:20)

Let’s use our God-given voice to announce, say, pray, and declare what we are believing for America:

  • That America will be one Nation Under God
  • That America will fulfill her Destiny
  • That America will be a nation filled with God’s Presence, Glory, and Power
  • That America will be a safe and healthy dwelling place for our
    children and grandchildren
  • That Righteousness and godliness will prevail in our nation
  • That brotherly kindness is exhibited everywhere
  • That family’s in America will encounter God’s healing love

Let’s believe for a beautiful healthy America where it’s safe to walk down the streets alone, and where homes don’t need protection from invaders.

We are very aware of what’s going on in our Nation, but let’s not echo the enemy but rather echo God’s Word. (Psalm 33:12)

“Oh, Father, we cry out with One Voice that your healing will flow through our land, bringing peace, joy, freedom, and deliverance from evil.”

Our words and prayers Make a difference.

Don’t allow your voice to be silenced. Join thousands of other believers crying out to God day and night, and let’s believe that our Nation will be restored. Do it for your children and grandchildren. Let’s believe for a great turnaround! (2 Chronicles 7:14)
