The American Dream

As I walked I came upon an American flag, red white and blue with two new cars, a red and a blue one in front of a nice home. Here is someone who has the American dream of prosperity. It used to be a "chicken in every pot" that was the goal for every American, but we have become used to much more.

Deu 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Rev 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

Rev 2:5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

The American dream is being entangled with debt, individual debt from credit card borrowing and the nation is in debt, borrowing from foreign nations who once feared us. China has suggested that we decrease our defense spending. The function of government is to provide for the common defense.

Deu 6:13 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.

Deu 6:14 Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;

Deu 6:15 (For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.

The American dream of wealth and prosperity is fading for our children and grandchildren. Is not the problem a spiritual one? A nation who has taken Jesus, God, the ten commandments and the faith of our founding fathers out of the nations schools and institutions. We have destroyed millions of our children to the gods of self and pleasure, it is no wonder that we are in trouble. God has left us alone and unprotected.

2 Chr 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Turn back to the dream of our founding fathers; a land of religious freedom, honoring and trusting in our God. Higher education was for training preachers and evangelists. Our nation became great because we trusted in our great savior. Return to the American dream of our fathers. Return to the cross and trust in Jesus my savior. The blood of Jesus Christ still saves you from your sins.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
