Good morning! Today marks the eighteenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the United States. The World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon were hit by commercial aircraft. American Airline flight 11 and United Airline flight 175 struck the twin towers. American Airline flight 77 struck the Pentagon. United Airline flight 93 failed in its attempt to reach the White House or the Capitol Building. Heroic passengers stormed the cockpit and crashed it in a field in Pennsylvania. 2,996 died and over 6,000 were injured. Many more died in the months and years following due to cancer and respiratory conditions related to the dust and other debris emitted into the air. Many lives have been given in service to our country since that day as well. Our nation experienced an assault on its mainland that eerily reminded us of December 7, 1941 - Pearl Harbor. We were taken by surprise and we have not been the same since. I remember where I was the moment I received the news. This event changed our national security on every level. Today, we take the time to remember the fallen And their families that include civilians, public safety officials, and military service personnel. God spared us in His mercy and helped us recover. May we take the time to reflect upon this and humbly seek His face. However, our nation faces yet a greater foe than terrorism. That foe is its own internal wickedness. We are imploding from the inside. We need an act of God to spare us from the impending judgment if we are to continue living in the bounties of our beloved land. We need heroes of godly character who will step up and sacrifice themselves for the sake of our nation. Heroes of faith that will fight in the culture war that is attempting to seize the heart of our nation. This is a civil war. Our nation is teetering on disaster and we are flirting with it. There is a very distinct line being drawn between the Christians and the secularist socialists. The truth of the matter is this: many in this nation love darkness rather than light.
“And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.” John 3:19 NLT
They are deceived and walking in blindness. The blind are leading the blind. If we don't have a move of God, we will fall into the ditch (see Matthew 15:14). America's only hope is Jesus! We need Him more now than ever! Please, child of God, join me in humility before God as we seek His merciful intervention and deliverance. Saints of God, we must be interceding on behalf of our nation. Let's ask God to cast down every imagination that exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ! Let's ask God to preserve our Christian heritage and freedom. Let ask God to renew our love for Him and revive the church!! Let's ask Him to revive us individually and corporately. I love America, but I love Jesus more than anything! He is the God of all nations! One day all men will know this (see Philippians 2:5-11 and Revelation 1:7).
