Today….not tomorrow….today!

Day 257

Short one today.  I am so mad at the “greatest generation”.  I mean I appreciate the sacrifices of WWII, and a LOT of the things that they have contributed to the nation.  BUT DON’T STOP!!! You are still living.  Guys like me and my generation are crying out for you to stand up and tell our nation what is going to happen if we don’t return to God!

What is going to happen to our country if “Homosexual Marriage” is the norm?  What is going to happen to our country if we don’t stop abortion?  What is going to happen to our country if we don’t reduce our debt?

Quit focusing on only social security and medicare….we are desperate to get wisdom from you!  In the bible…the elder generation is honored, and wisdom is passed down.  We are suffering now because we haven’t done the following….

Deuteronomy 6:4-13 – Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[a]Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates.

10 When the Lord your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you—a land with large, flourishing cities you did not build, 11 houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant—then when you eat and are satisfied,12 be careful that you do not forget the Lord, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

13 Fear the Lord your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name. 14 Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you; 15 for the Lord your God, who is among you, is a jealous God and his anger will burn against you, and he will destroy you from the face of the land. 16 Do not put the Lord your God to the test as you did at Massah.

God commands us to teach the next generation.  So rise up! Demand a microphone!  And teach us! PLEASE…..we will perish if you don’t impart wisdom on us.  Note that I didn’t say we need your “opinion”….we need your wisdom.  And remember…the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.

Our encouragement for today is that we ALL have the responsibility to teach the next generation!  And by doing that we will be planting seeds that God will show us in heaven….and maybe….just maybe….if you start planting today…you will even get to SEE the fruit.  Oh yeah…the bible tells us to do it as well…

Hebrews 3:7-10 –  7Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says,  “TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE,

8DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS AS WHEN THEY PROVOKED ME, AS IN THE DAY OF TRIAL IN THE WILDERNESS,  9WHERE YOUR FATHERS TRIED Me BY TESTING Me, AND SAW MY WORKS FOR FORTY YEARS.

10“THEREFORE I WAS ANGRY WITH THIS GENERATION, AND SAID, ‘THEY ALWAYS GO ASTRAY IN THEIR HEART, AND THEY DID NOT KNOW MY WAYS’; (NASB)

And hey…if you do it…I will too!

Grace and Peace, Dan

 

About Dan

My name is Dan. I grew up on the lovely Eastern Shore of Maryland...go Colonels! God really got a hold of me a few years back and asked me when I was going to "get in the game" and start living my life for Him. I have been burdened with the fact that many...many men in our world are wasting their lives while God wants them in the game. This is one of the ways that I am giving them that challenge...our nation, and our world depends on it. So thanks for your support...and your prayers. Dan
