As Christians in this country, we are dual citizens. We are citizens of the United States of America and citizens of heaven. As citizens, we have responsibilities to each kingdom. Our responsibility to God's kingdom is "to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with our God" (Mic. 6:8b) so that the Gospel of His kingdom can be proclaimed to every nation on earth. And our responsibility as citizens of the United States is to select leaders who fear God, love truth, and hate dishonest gain (Ex. 18:21).
In America, the moral compass that founded this nation is spinning out of control. Evil is being called good and good, evil. History is being rewritten, and foundational laws are being overturned.
I heard that of the millions of American Christians registered to vote, something like 25 million Evangelicals didn't go to the polls during the last election. Only 10 million of them could have swung the election. I also heard that there are currently more conservative legislators in our nation's capital than there have been since Calvin Coolidge's tenure as president. Yet in the last few years, the number of immoral laws and executive orders forcing their way through our courts and changing our way of life are staggering.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."1 A gross darkness of immorality and mob rule is trying to intimidate our country, but I have hope for the future.
If you knew the bridge down the road was out and you saw a man traveling down that dangerous road, it wouldn't be wrong to try to prevent that man from driving to his own death. In fact, it would be your responsibility to do whatever you can to help him. Perhaps you'd stand in the middle of the road, shouting and waving to get his attention! "But what if he won't listen?" some say. "What if my shouting does no good? What if he gets angry?" At least you tried. You gave him the freedom to accept or reject the truth for himself. You've heard me quote Edmund Burke before, who said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."2 I'm standing in the middle of the road, doing all I can to fl ag people down and tell them the truth. Will you join me?
You may have already signed the Declaration of Dependence since its launch last November. I thank you for that; however, it's time to take it to another level. I need your help once again. If we're going to accomplish the goals that the Lord had me set out to accomplish, I'm going to need you to help spread the word about the Declaration. We need to get on the radar of legislators so that godly laws can be written and we can start turning this nation around.
How do you do that? Start with the people you know. You have circles of infl uence that I'll never reach. These are people who've never heard of me and would never stand in the middle of the road with me. But they would stand with you. These would be your neighbors, family, friends, coworkers, pastor, and fellow church members. You can also share this through your social media outlets - Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or your blog. One thing is for certain: We can only get this done if we work together.
In the next few months, Andrew Wommack Ministries will be initiating a media blitz to get the Declaration more into the public eye. Our goal is to gather at least 1,000,000 signatures so that Washington will see the church, not as the scattered few, but as we truly are - the backbone of this country. But it's going to take action on our part.
So, if you haven't yet, sign the Declaration by going to www.DependenceOnGod.com
. If you have signed, help spread the word. Share this document with your family and friends, and ask them to sign it. I've created a free media kit fi lled with tools you can use to share this with others. There are professional images you can post, email scripts you can edit, social media posts you can copy and paste, and everything else you might need. Visit www.awme.net
for more information. If you'd like to order ministry materials, I have a brand-new package called Dependence on God.
It includes my series called God and Country, which is taken from my interview with David Barton about the godly heritage on which America was founded. The package also includes my recent interview with Dr. James Dobson, where we discuss the Supreme Court's decision on samesex marriage and the Declaration of Dependence upon God. My interview with minister Janet Boynes goes right along with that so it's part of the package too. In addition, you'll get teachings from my latest Ministers' Conference in a series called Faith, Love, and War. In that series, Pastor Duane Sheriff, Bob Yandian, and I teach from the Scriptures what a Christian response should be to the ungodliness that threatens to destroy our nation. You can get all of these teachings in your choice of either CD or DVD. Finally, you will receive my Declaration of Dependence mug. You can get this entire package for £30. You will be blessed.
