“Reviving the Spirit of America”

Since this is the July-August-September issue of “The Spirit of Faith,” I want to share about something that many folks usually stop and take the time to think about during the July Fourth Holiday – our American heritage and freedoms. There are people who refuse to believe that the United States is, or ever was, a Christian nation. Even Christians have lost the vision of this being a Christian nation! But all you need do is look at history (which is “His – Story”) and see that our country was started by a series of miracles! When I was a child growing up in school, we were taught that – “Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492.” But our teachers never mentioned that Christopher Columbus was a committed Christian that had studied out the origin of his name – which means the “Christ-bearer,” and took it seriously! He believed that he had a revelation from God to go unto “the Indies” to take the Gospel to those lands. Columbus wrote in his “Book of Prophecies,” “…it was the Lord that put into my mind – I could feel His hand upon me – the fact that it would be possible to sail from here to the Indies… there was no question that the inspiration came from the Holy Spirit, because He comforted me with rays of marvelous illumination from the Holy Scriptures…” And what did he say urged him on to discover what he called “the Indies” (actually the land to become known as America?) He went on to say, “…the fact that the Gospel must still be preached to so many lands in such a short time – this is what convinces me.” So we see, God inspired a man of vision to find this land! This was just the beginning of the many miracles detailed in history – but amazingly, never mentioned in public schools – that demonstrates that the Lord has indeed had His hand on this country since its beginnings!

Unfortunately, many people in the United States have lost the vision of our country as a Christian nation. This is due in large part to the influx of secular humanism both as a “religion” and as a philosophy motivating many educators and politicians to remove the Bible and references to God from both our political and social systems. Our children are not being taught this country’s Christian heritage. Secular humanism seeks to eliminate Christianity and the Bible from this country! We, as Christians, must stand up and be counted by registering to vote and then voting! Many “vote their conscience” – well, the time has come to vote our Bibles – not our conscience! Vote in favor of those that take stands against the evils that are creeping into our nation such as – abortion, homosexual “rights,” keeping prayer and reference to God out of our public schools, the efforts of those to strip away our rights and privileges to worship and serve God in every area of life! We must not simply sit back and say and do nothing – if we don’t do something – who will? I am not endorsing any particular party or candidate. I am simply saying that you need to educate yourself to the issues and choice of candidates and then take action by voting for those that are supporting God in our country!

We have a very special tape that we want to send you this month – it is called, “The Scriptural Basis For Patriotism”. As usual we will send this tape out free to those that request it, however, we would remind you that it does cost us the price of the tape, the labeling, the packaging and the mailing of the tape to you, so if God speaks to you about enclosing a gift to help provide this tape to others it would be appreciated!

As I said in the last issue, the Spirit of Faith Broadcast could be continued on WLXN-FM in Lexington, NC only if there was enough support coming in to pay the radio bill each month. I said that I would gladly send the programs from Texas and continue the program if people became partners with us- that we could not do it alone. Had enough people “voted” in this way, the Spirit of Faith Broadcast would still be on every day as it was for five years and five months continuously. But, as you know, the Spirit of Faith Broadcast went off with the airing of the 1400th program on June 15, 1984. Many have said that the broadcast was a blessing to them while it was on. We have listed the topics that were taught in the order that they aired, both in 1976 when we were on WSEZ-FM for a short time before Brother Bill entered the full time ministry, and on WLXN-FM after entering full time ministry.

Where do we go from here? Well, as we said last month, the ministry will continue! I firmly believe that we are going to be back on radio and perhaps even television one day! For now I will concentrate my efforts on being faithful and diligent in my staff position at Word of’ Faith here in Dallas! I am involved in the Believer’s Outreach Fellowship program as a home Bible Study teacher and director and doing whatever is at hand to do to get the Word out here in the Dallas Metroplex. As I said earlier, we still need your prayerful support as we continue to publish this newsletter and “Proclaim the Word of Faith!”
