The 4th of July is filled with family, fireworks, friends and just a ton of fun! It is an extremely important day in the United State of America.
I hear some Christians curse America, cut down our country, and it takes everything in me not to reach out and lay hands on them suddenly. I never allow it to crest my lips, but my immediate thought is, “then move to another country and you will see how blessed we really are in the USA.”
We have FREEDOM, that cost so many their lives!
We can raise our hands in worship in our streets. We can go to church on Sunday – Saturday and not have to hide. We are not concerned that we will be murdered, beheaded, thrown in prison for the reason of serving Jesus.
We are a blessed nation. Yes we have problems, but we are A NATION THAT IS FILLED WITH GOD LOVING PEOPLE!

Iranian authorities began to systematically seize and destroy Bibles after a Shiite cleric issued an urgent warning about the spread of Christianity.
Authorities in northwestern Iran seized 6,500 Bibles, according to the Iranian Christian news organization Mohabat News… http://www.newsmax.com
Asia told the women that Jesus is alive, but Mohammad is dead. “Our Christ is the true prophet of God,” she told them. Upon hearing this, the Muslim women became angry and began to beat her. Then some men came and locked her in a room. Police took her into custody and later charged her with blasphemy against the prophet Mohammad. Seventeen months later she was convicted and sentenced to death. To date, no Christian in Pakistan has been executed under Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, but in several cases, extremists have murdered Christians after their release from prison. http://www.persecution.com
North Korea – “Christians are classified as hostile and face arrest, detention, torture, even public execution,” the Open Doors report said. CBN.com

WE MIGHT NOT LIVE IN A PERFECT COUNTRY, BUT THANK GOD WE LIVE IN AMERICA!!
I love America, and today we thank you Lord for the freedom to go to church and worship Jesus FREELY!
FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE – ASK JESUS!
Heb. 12:2, We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.
Give God praise today for our country, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
