Nothing Wrong With Patriotism From President Trump or You.

This year many Americans spent time this Fourth of July celebrating the holiday in traditional fashion. Family, friends, barbecues, and fireworks were the main course of the day. For many this year was different. It was noted that many more flags were placed in conspicuous display all across our great land. While some took time to argue and debate, many others
including President Trump took time to pay honor to our military and first responders.
It’s not a sin to show your patriotism for your nation. Its not a sin to love your nation of birth. We all must come to the realization that God ordained you to be born in the your native land. For those of who are blessed to be born here. We have something to cherish all across this
nation. No matter what your race or ethnic background God ordered your steps and placed you here. It is in this time and season that your calling and election are coming to pass.
There are many more great days ahead for this nation. And there are many more challenges that will come with those great days but as we continue to unite together under our flag and in the honor that God has bestowed upon us we will be alright. God is working on our behalf. He is working many things for our good. Patriotism or love for country was an attribute that Jesus shared over the Nation of Israel.
Jesus Weeps Over Jerusalem
“Now as He drew near, He saw
the city and wept over it, saying, “If
you had known, even you, especially
in this your day, the things that make
for your peace! But now they are hidden
from your eyes. For days will
come upon you when your enemies
will build an embankment around
you, surround you and close you in
on every side, and level you, and your
children within you, to the ground;
and they will not leave in you one
stone upon another, because you did
not know the time of your visitation.”
Luke 19:41-44 (NKJV)
There is a special love that Jesus has for Jerusalem. He prayed fervently and earnestly for her to be blessed. In this season we have something very special in our President. His love for this country. He and his wife put many tributes together to bring back a godly patriotism to the people of this country. Even with all of the ridicule and the coming against them. They did not let that stop there love for our country. A shift has taken place around the world and that shift has caused many to want to be in America. God is with us in a very special way and we must manifest the same love for our country as Jesus manifested for Jerusalem.
We are better as a people and a nation when we can remain true the founding principles that made us great. We can freely enjoy the pursuit of life, liberty, & happiness.
