Our Finest Hour - Cal Pierce
There is something about this coming year (2015) that we need to get ready for. I believe that it will be a pivotal year for America. We have been a blessed nation because our forefathers founded this country as one nation under God. Because of that blessing, we have been a leader of nations in the world.
The enemy is doing everything he can to take God out of our nation. He is using people to change our country from being one nation under God to one nation without God. A God-less nation will no longer receive the blessings of God.
Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God,
And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear.
We have to remember that God doesn’t hate the sinner, He loves the sinner. We know this because of John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His lonely begotten Son...”
Even though man’s sin hides God’s face from him that doesn’t mean that God doesn’t love the lost. He gave Jesus in order that man can return to God through Jesus.
Where does this leave you and I as believers? We need to remember that as believers God is not hiding His face from us. He is about to pour His glory upon us. As we come into the New Year and darkness is covering the earth and deep darkness the peoples, we can be filled with anticipation because the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. (Isa 60:2)
Deep darkness is just an indication that your light is coming. The purpose of your light coming is that God will not give up on the lost. The darker the world, the brighter our light will be because greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. As we enter into this season where the enemy is advancing, I can’t help but remember the famous words of Winston Churchill as the battle Britton was about to take place, “This will be our finest hour.”
