Welcome to the Newheart Commentary of the Lifting Us Up in Liberty Program
Just a few days ago this country celebrated Independence Day. What an amazing blessing America has been. The Founding Fathers declared that only the Hand of God could achieve such a national charter of liberty.
The Liberty Bell rang 4 days following the signing of the Constitution. It was the first public reading of it in Philadelphia. The inscription on the Liberty Bell is from Leviticus 25:10: “Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants Thereof.” America created a new cultural climate giving the human spirit freedom to explore scientific secrets… Click To Tweet. America encouraged industry and a free enterprise culture; allowing mankind to enjoy the fruits of his labor unlike ever before.
Sadly, today we see a different America evolving. A famous adage says: “A people must from time to time, refresh themselves at the well-spring of their origin, lest they perish.” We are a nation of laws. But often the Constitution is ignored and considered outdated. Judges opinions seem to matter over the law. It is several generations now that have betrayed & abandoned the rule of law. Thomas Jefferson said “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.
2 Timothy 3:1-9 warns of the godlessness in the last days: “….People will be Without love, unforgiving, brutal, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God…” But 2 Timothy 4:5 says: “….keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist….” So let us keep being the disciples Christ called us to be and trust that God will work His mighty plan through the remnant.
Here’s more good news: Psalm 37:1 says “Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Verse 6 says: (The Lord) will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.”
God’s word always offers hope. Read it daily to your children. They will become that sunlight in the midst of growing darkness. The Newheart Commentary recommends you read “The 5000 Year Leap” by W. Cleon Skousen. Children from 6th grade & up would greatly benefit from reading it this summer. You’ll discover the principles of freedom our Founding Fathers said must be understood & perpetuated for people who desire freedom. It can be purchased from the National Center For Constitutional Studies.
