The Republic, God and You :: By Bill Wilson

Many say that the Constitutional Republic of the US is over if Republicans do not hold the presidency and Senate. It looks as though, by those standards, it is over. But let us not forget that the Constitution remains intact, its precepts enforceable. Let us also remember that God is our witness; that Christ is our salvation; that the Holy Spirit is our comforter and guide.

The Republic should not define you. In fact, you should define the Republic. And that, my brothers and sisters, is the reason we are faced today with historic consequences of a revolutionary complacency. We are looking for solutions, but there are no solutions in politics, only compromise. And compromise is so systemic that it is as an evil upon our land.

Over the past 19 years, I have grown to know many Daily Jot subscribers very well. You are the active ones. You are, as Christ said in Matthew 5:13-14, “the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world.”

You have written letters. You have made phone calls. You have attended prayer meetings and prayer conference calls. You pray unceasingly. You speak truth wherever and whenever the opportunity. Still, with all this, the Republic is crumbling. And we look for many reasons—the legality of abortion, the killing of the unborn; the acceptance of same sex marriage; the censorship of God in the public square; the abomination of the dishonest scale—which is found in politics, elections, government, the church, entertainment, and business dealings.

But these are not things that you practice. In fact, much of this you and I do not have any control over. We are at our wits end because all of our prayer and acts seem to come to little. Well, it is time to become more strategic. I have written for a long time that the condition of our nation reflects the condition of the “church.” So long as the “church” in general is focused on extra-biblical, emotional and self-indulgent feel-good religion, this nation and the world for that matter, will continue on its path into darkness.

No doubt, the prophecies of the end time foretell this darkness as Christ said in Matthew 24:38, “For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until that day Noah entered into the ark.”

We cannot be defined by two seats in the Senate and the Presidency. You see, as is written in 1 Peter 2:9, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people: that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”

We are the nation. There is a 70% majority of Christians in this nation. Trouble is, most do not even understand what it is to be a Christian because they haven’t heard the Word of God. When it comes down to the future of our nation being held by two Senate seats and the Presidency, we are holding onto the Republic by a thin-threaded rope. We need more than that. Be encouraged that you are the light in this present darkness and let that light shine. Hold accountability, especially with the “church.”

Overcome evil with good. Christ showed us how.
