The original God Chosen Nation. In the Beginning, God Created perfection. A perfect universe with a perfect planet and then created two perfect people. Then they sinned against God and were cast out of perfection and required to toil at hard labor for everything. The people of the earth, who, according to the Bible, were direct descendants of Adam and Eve. Genesis 3:20 says, “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.” All who have ever lived or will ever live came from Adam and Eve.
The people over time became horribly wicked, and God chose to kill them all except eight people. That huge original loss of life estimated at 10 to 100 million people. After civilization restarted, people yet again decided that they didn’t need God and wanted to praise and honor themselves. So, they were scattered, and their language was changed to languages. People who could speak the same language came together and moved away to form new nations. Then, out of all these nations, the man Abram was God’s choice to create a new nation. Eventually, the nation of Israel was born. A nation dedicated to the one true God.
Another God Chosen Nation
In accordance with historical records and our founding documents, The United States of America, although not specifically chosen by God, was dedicated to God. It often feels like this great nation was chosen by God, although there is no tangible proof but plenty of anecdotal evidence. We have prospered like no other nation. Psalm 33:12 says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.”
So, on this Independence Day – the day we celebrate the Birth of a new nation – One Nation Under God – I pray for this country. The demons of Socialism and Communism are barking at our doors. The demons of hate and racism are barking at our doors. And, Yes, the demons of Christian complacency and fear are barking at our doors. We cannot let the demons win! We know God has the ultimate plan but we are also part of that plan! We’re to be Salt and Light in a tasteless, rotten, and dark world!
