If America doesn't do this from the top upper echelons of leadership we should still remember to practice what's right in our own lives:

"Thus says the LORD, “Do justice and righteousness, and deliver the one who has been robbed from the power of his oppressor. Also do not mistreat or do violence to the stranger, the orphan, or the widow; and do not shed innocent blood in this place." Jer 22:3

"You shall not wrong a stranger or oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt." Ex 22:21

"Learn to do good; Seek justice, Reprove the ruthless, Defend the orphan, Plead for the widow." Isa 1:17

"and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before." 1 Thess 4:6

"Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry And bring the homeless poor into the house; When you see the naked, to cover him; And not to hide yourself from your own flesh?" Isa 58:7

People who love money will hate God and any idea of His authority and power.

"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You pay tithes of mint, dill, and cummin, but you have disregarded the weightier matters of the Law: justice, mercy, and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former." Matt 23:23

We can't neglect to do good and expect to please God.

Guess some people still struggle with how Jesus was a 100% man and the Son of God before He was crucified. He is the Father's Son because he came from the Father (John 16:28). Jesus is the Word (John 1:1,14). The Word is life (John 14:6, 1 John 1:2) and life is an eternal invisible Spirit.

Additionally, If someone came from Detroit they could be called a son of Detroit because it is where they come from. This is how I see Jesus, He has no beginning or end. Yet, He isn't the Father because He has His own soul. He just came from the Father as offsprings do.

Anyway when Jesus walked the earth He was as we are. This is why God the Father told Jesus in the beginning let us make man in our image. This indicates Jesus had the same limitations we have when he was human (Col 1:15, Heb 2:14).

Where people get lost is at the point they give credit to the man Jesus for the work the Father did inside Him after He received the Spirit as a dove when He got baptized by John.

Jesus repeatedly said:

"So Jesus said, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing on My own, but speak exactly what the Father has taught Me." John 8:28

"Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words I say to you, I do not speak on My own. Instead, it is the Father dwelling in Me, carrying out His work." John 14:10

I think too often the lines are blurred out of misunderstanding no doubt about who the Father and Son are. This shouldn't be, we are warned: "This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God," 1 John 4:2 AND "For many deceivers have gone out into the world, refusing to confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist." 2 John 1:7

It isn't a light matter not to recognize the humanity of Jesus Christ. People who fail to do this aren't of God and they have no business teaching anyone about God.

All the signs, wonders and miracles that Jesus did were by the power of the Father through His Spirit. However, they weren't by the power of Jesus alone.

"I can do nothing on my own. I judge as God tells me. Therefore, my judgment is just, because I carry out the will of the one who sent me, not my own will." John 5:30

This is how Jesus "learned" to obey (Heb 5:8) ... Alternatively God the Father doesn't learn anything because He already knows all things.

"The reward for humility and fear of the LORD is riches and honor and life." Pr. 22:4

"The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good." Psalm 14:1

If you want a better life experience be humble and fear God ... Nobody is as good as Jesus who became obedient to the point of death. We should all remember him when we feel pride rearing up inside of our hearts. There is really nothing to be proud of when we compare ourselves to God.

Let's give Him the glory for all things and walk in fear of God to live an abundant life!

Doing good doesn't come naturally because it is something we must learn to do (Isa 1:17). It is easier to defend ourselves and attack someone rather than to seek out ways to support and aid our fellow human beings.

Our hearts and minds are just wired like that. After a baby cries for milk they are satisfied and typically fall asleep soon after eating. This behavior to fulfill our desires continues throughout life until we make ourselves think about how to benefit someone else.

It would be great if people always loved us like our parents did when we were babies, but that isn't how the world works. We must learn how to extend our care and concern to someone else because we all need someone sometimes.

The world is full of takers, but givers are greater. "The greatest among you will be your servant" Matt 23:11

"From men with Your hand, O LORD,
From men of the world, whose portion is in this life,
And whose belly You fill with Your treasure;
They are satisfied with children,
And leave their abundance to their babes.

15As for me, I shall behold Your face in righteousness;
I will be satisfied with Your likeness when I awake." Psalm 17:14,15

Some people will only get this life to live, but my eyes are focused on the time when I come back from the dead and I'm bringing my family with me. How? Faith is contagious (2 Tim 1:5).

Although many won't understand until it happens. This is why they are proud of everything that won't last and they are stealing, killing and destroying what is destined to perish.

A seed always bears its own kind: "The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good." Gen 1:12

"But God gives it a body just as He wished, and to each of the seeds a body of its own." 1 Cor 15:38

"And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so." Gen 1:24

Don't believe that men who claimed to believe in the Bible thought man and beast can form a new species. Perhaps today scientists can grow organs in a laboratory mixing more than one species together, but they cannot live, work and survive.

"All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another flesh of birds, and another of fish." 1 Cor 15:39

European colonizers who thought Indigenous people were part beasts lied to take advantage of others while pretending to hide behind ignorance. Not only do seeds produce after their own kind, but God himself is our spirit of life and He is responsible for how an organism changes and grows (Ecc 3:19, Job 34:14).

"So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow." 1 Cor 3:7

This is why they will never be able to figure out what is happening .."then I saw all that God has done. No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all their efforts to search it out, no one can discover its meaning. Even if the wise claim they know, they cannot really comprehend it." Ecc 8:17

If the living God is behind our existence and growth, humans can't claim life is a naturally occurring process, which simultaneously evolves an organism into a new or different species.

There is no evidence one species becomes another and nobody can claim to know that changes associated with growth aren't happening because God's Spirit is fulfilling His plan within all living organisms. They can only describe life, but they can never understand what it is because they refuse to acknowledge the Invisible Living God.

I love this story because it shows the depth of thinking an animal has when they have the ability to speak.

"But God was angry because he was going, and the angel of the LORD took his stand in the way as an adversary against him. Now he was riding on his donkey and his two servants were with him. 23When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way with his drawn sword in his hand, the donkey turned off from the way and went into the field; but Balaam struck the donkey to turn her back into the way. 24Then the angel of the LORD stood in a narrow path of the vineyards, with a wall on this side and a wall on that side. 25When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD, she pressed herself to the wall and pressed Balaam’s foot against the wall, so he struck her again. 26The angel of the LORD went further, and stood in a narrow place where there was no way to turn to the right hand or the left. 27When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD, she lay down under Balaam; so Balaam was angry and struck the donkey with his stick. 28And the LORD opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, “What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?” 29Then Balaam said to the donkey, “Because you have made a mockery of me! If there had been a sword in my hand, I would have killed you by now.” 30The donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your donkey on which you have ridden all your life to this day? Have I ever been accustomed to do so to you?” And he said, “No.”

31Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way with his drawn sword in his hand; and he bowed all the way to the ground. 32The angel of the LORD said to him, “Why have you struck your donkey these three times? Behold, I have come out as an adversary, because your way was contrary to me. 33“But the donkey saw me and turned aside from me these three times. If she had not turned aside from me, I would surely have killed you just now, and let her live.” Num 22:22-33

Love this: "Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, 17and after getting into a boat, they started to cross the sea to Capernaum. It had already become dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. 18The sea began to be stirred up because a strong wind was blowing. 19Then, when they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near to the boat; and they were frightened. 20But He said to them, “It is I; do not be afraid.” 21So they were willing to receive Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going." John 6:16-21

See Jesus is in full control of our reality. There are no laws of physics that he can't bend or change at any given time. This is how he could make feeble legs strong and healthy in an instant and raise people (including himself) from the dead.

However, had he sinned he couldn't do anything because his own Father, God would have completely separated from Him.

Jesus was flesh and blood and it took much self control and focus to accomplish his mission in the face of adversity. To know his own manner of death and to willingly give himself up as a sacrifice for us, including those that murdered him, was an act beyond everyone's comprehension. However, there was no other way for us to have the opportunity for the forgiveness of sin and to have an intimate relationship with God. He needed to die so that all who believe in him and keep his word can be saved after judgement.

This is what we must think of when we encounter diverse problems, challenges and afflictions. Faith tells me there is life after death and that is something we must believe until our last breath.

If we've been sanctified by the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus through obedience to the Gospel we are new and we will go from strength to strength every day until we see God (Ps 84:7).

"Yet those who wait for the LORD
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary." Isa 40:31

We may be vexed in our souls by what is happening and what is to come, but we have already overcome the world (1 John 5:4) and our victory is guaranteed. It is only a matter of time.
