September 11, 2001 was an attack on our financial center and our military center and but for the last plane’s attack being short-circuited by brave Americans probably our political center.
It was both an attack on our religious/spiritual Christian foundation and our democratic foundation.
On the 20th Anniversary in a special way we remember and honor those Americans who lost their lives on that day, those injured that day, and those Americans and Allies killed/injured in our response to that day over the last 20 years.
Let us even moreso commit to Christianizing our nation and beyond (Matthew 28:18-20) which include more righteous financial, military, and legal, and political centers and our society in general.
Let the last 20 years be to us all a wake up call (e.g., 9/11/2001; financial crisis/depression of 2008; increased racial tension; Pandemic of 2020; and political unrest culminating with Jan 6, 2021 incident on Capitol Hill; and the ongoing extreme divisiveness in numerous areas on numerous levels). Let us heed the direct or indirect warnings of God (2 Chronicles 7:14).
Trials and tribulation and suffering are part of life. The question is why they come.
So let us take care, individually and collectively, to repent unto our Christian foundation and yet even better than we begin as a nation.
Let it begin with the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth (1 Tim 3:15)
Let us remember the words of Peter in 1 Peter 4:14-19:
14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.
16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
To the Glory of God!
Much Godly Love and Peace!
