“We have not been given the spirit of fear; but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).
As I went further in my exhortation, I asked, what if the founders responded in such a fashion as you are? We would not have the freedoms we now possess. We still have the freedom to right the wrongs. We as Americans are not made out of that stuff called “fear.” Fear is the opposite of faith, and you in your reason are an enemy to the faith that God gives (Galatians 2:21). My Father also told me that the gates of hell shall not prevail against His Church (Matthew 16:18).
The hammer can come down upon us over and over from our enemies, but remember that the anvil does not need to be replaced– the hammer does. The seed of the righteous is forever.
I went on, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose” (Matthew 6:21). I asked, what is it that you have to lose? Because the man who is feared the most is the one who has nothing to lose, but everything to gain. And what is it that can be gained and sustained, but freedom for our posterity?
Friends, never live your life where the enemies of God and the republic will no longer see you as dangerous to their lawlessness.
Furthermore, it is up to us to emulate our forefathers who established freedom through that founding document called the Declaration of Independence (a record of establishing our foundations while throwing off tyrannical usurpations).
“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
Like our courageous forefathers who established this republic over 238 years ago through their sacrifice, we have it in our power to begin the world over again just like they did. That is, if we are willing to go back to Him who gave the power to establish. And rest assured, my friends; fearing corruption is not a part of His plan (Proverbs 29:25). His plan is to conquer corruption! That is what America is all about.
Friends, never take counsel from your fears!
