A Solemn Feast

Joel 2:15-17
Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?

If there was ever a time, that the people of the United States needed to gather in an earnest way, to seek God, to humble ourselves before Him and repent, to pray for our County-this is that time! I could write about all the reasons that we are in need from the war, to the economy to our moral bankruptcy, but we all already know it and have seen countless accounts of it! What are we going to do? There are many ways in which you can approach it. You can fast, you can call a desperate prayer meeting, here in my neck of the woods, I will be attending a week-long camp meeting, the theme of which is "Call Unto me" and surely, it is a time to call on the Lord!

What is needed is a genuine call, a genuine seeking, not some kind of shallow, go through the motions program that we're all impressed with. There doesnt even need to be a specific gathering necessarily, the heart of the people is what needs to turn to the Good Lord, so that can be done in your home, at CHurch, with your family, withy our friends, it must take place everywhere, because it must take place in the heart, and your heart follows you everywhere you go!

I will continue to cherish the Bible and the flag! God bless America!
