We need God in America – Carmen…..

I was traveling for the last couple of Days and heard my favorite Artist “Carmen” playing on KSLT from Rapid City SD.   For those of you who know me – Carmen can get me going and he will be doing my Funeral Service.   I had to give one of my best friends the details and CD’s on my Last Wishes….  my wife was not too thrilled about what I had planned (LOL)  but it will be great.
Well the Song that was playing was:                                                          Enjoy…..
We Need God in America Again –   Carmen – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sb9s4Y54adk
You will see me writing allot about What Radical Truth and Grace –   and what that Means to me in the next few weeks as this is our Theme for the upcoming GMM Conference and this song brings it out.    When Jesus came to earth He brought with him Change about what Truth was and then he showed us this Grace that most people did not understand…    The words to this song remind me that we still need that Truth and Grace today as much as we needed back then.
Here are the lyrics – enjoy reading them.

 George Washington, Thomas Jefferson
Samuel Adams, First Chief Justice John Jay
Names synonymous with the spirit of our country
Founding fathers of the U.S.A.

Over 200 years ago they shook off the chains of tyranny from Great Britain
By divine call
Citing 27 biblical violations they wrote the Declaration of Independence
With liberty and justice for all

But something happened since Jefferson called the Bible the cornerstone
For American liberty then put it in our schools as a light
Or since “Give me liberty, or give me death,” Patrick Henry said
Our country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ

We eliminated God from the equation of American life
Thus eliminating the reason this nation first began
From beyond the grave I hear the voices of our founding fathers plead
You need God in America again

Of the 55 men who formed the Constitution
Fifty-two were active members of their church
Founding fathers like Noah Webster who wrote the first dictionary
Could literally quote the Bible chapter and verse

James Madison said, “We’ve staked our future on our ability to follow
The Ten Commandments with all our heart”
These men believed you couldn’t even call yourself an American
If you subvert the Word of God

In his farewell address, Washington said, “You can’t have national morality apart from religious principle,” and it’s true
‘Cause right now we have nearly 150,000 kids carrying guns
To these war zones we call public schools

In the ’40’s and ’50’s student problems were chewing gum and talking
In the ’90’s, rape and murder are the trend
The only way this nation can even hope to last this decade
Is put God in America again

The only hope for America is Jesus
The only hope for our country is Him
If we repent of our ways stand firm and say
We need God in America again

Abe Lincoln said, “The philosophy of the classroom in one generation
Will be the philosophy of government of the next”
So when you eliminate the Word of God from the classroom and politics
You eliminate the nation that Word protects

America is now number one in teen pregnancy and violent crime
Number one in illiteracy, drug use, and divorce
Everyday a new holocaust of 5,000 unborn die
While pornography floods our streets like open sewers

America’s dead and dying hand is on the threshold of the Church
While the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah vex us all
When it gets to the point where people would rather
Come out of the closet than clean it
It’s a sign that the judgment of God is gonna fall

If there’s ever been a time to rise up Church, it’s now
And as the blood bought saints of the living God proclaim
That it’s time to sound the alarm from the Church house to the White House
And say, “We want God in America again”

I believe it’s time for America to stand up and proclaim
That one nation under God is our demand
And send this evil lifestyle back to Satan where it came from
And let the Word of God revive our dying land

For Jesus Christ is coming back again in all His glory
And every eye shall see Him on that day
That’s why a new anointing of God’s power’s coming on us
To boldly tell the world you must be saved

Because astrology won’t save you, your horoscope won’t save you
The Bible says these things are all a farce
If you’re born again, you don’t need to look to the stars for your answers
‘Cause you can look to the very One who made those stars

History tells us time and time again
To live like there’s no God makes you a fool
If you want to see kids live right
Stop handing out condoms and start handing out the Word of God in schools

The only hope for America is Jesus
The only hope for our country is Him
If we repent of our ways
Stand firm and say
We need God in America again

We need God in America
God in America
God in America again

   As the song says – “Our only hope for America is Jesus”   –   I believe that Jesus is the only hope for the world – it is only through him that we can be saved…   I am seeing a Revival coming around again and I am seeing Men seeking out God for their answers…  it is an Awesome sight to encounter….     There is this Passion that is starting to be contagious and Truth and Grace abounding…

See you at the Conference….
