America Is Being Restored

The Sun is Rising

I received a comment on my previous blog post and my reply became so long I decided to make it a new blog post. Here is my response piece by piece. I believe many others may have similar thoughts. Please comment below if you have had any of these thoughts.

I wish and pray that there would be more awakened and righteously passionate people like you in America, and around the world.

Have you heard of the huge crowds at Restoring Love and FreePac in Texas last month? These are God loving, God fearing people who will be voting in November!  (If you're not registered to vote, Register to vote now!)

There were also people there from around the world who are starting “tea party” movements in their own countries! Peaceful movements protesting without violence and becoming active in the political process, educating themselves and others in the principles of liberty!

Here is a great video to recap some of the awesome spiritual moments. 


Have you joined a tea party or 9/12 group in your area? That is a great place to find like-minded, often Christian, Patriots, and get involved in taking our country back from the local level up! Local government is so important! Find groups in your area here to get connected:


We have a growing number of fiscally responsible, freedom-minded, folk like Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Allen West, Paul Ryan, Michelle Bachman, Rand Paul, Ron Paul, now Ted Cruze in Texas, the reelection of Scott Walker in Wisconsin and MORE! People who believe in the Constitution and that our rights are given by God, etc. Things ARE turning around!

I am angry and sad about what's happening to this nation. If this is the set judgment of God over the rebellious nation as Sodom and Gomorrah, what is the Lord telling to His people right now who are in this nation physically?

As far as Sodom and Gomorrah goes, let's remember Genesis 18:20-33 when Abraham plead with the Lord for Sodom and Gomorrah all the way down to “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.” Have we been bold yet humble in asking God to save our nation like this?


In Genesis 19:15 God sent angels to Lot literally saying “Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished. “ Lot didn't have to wonder what to do. He knew.

I'm asking Him what I should do and where should I go/be at this dangerous hour we're in. Have you heard from the Lord, whether you should stay or leave the country? I love America the way it used be, but is it God's will to stay physically where it has been hijacked by enemy forces? I hope and pray Christians would be more ALERT in what's going on and be REAL!!!


We are reaping what we have sown, BUT 2 Chronicles 7:14 says “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.


God listened to Abraham when he plead for Sodom and God DOES hear us! I am not going to tell anyone where to live but I will tell you that I am active in the Personhood movement in Florida to defend life and I know this is what God has called me to do in this season of my life. He has called me to take a stand for righteousness and He has a place for each and every one of us. Perhaps praying about what you should be doing will answer the question of where you should live as well. 

 In a blog post I wrote in December of 2011, called “Guidelines for Resistance to Tyranny I wrote, “Flight should only become an option after all means of protest and legal action have failed. We should not flee simply because we are afraid. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:6-7) “ I believe that this November we will see the people push back against tyranny when they go to the polls. In my eyes, protest and legal action are currently in full swing.
I was reminded of Proverbs 22:3, "Prudent man sees evil coming and hides himself, but the foolish goes forth and are destroyed"

When I use Biblegateway.com to look up Proverbs 22:3 NIV it gives me the cross reference of Proverbs 14:16 NIV “The wise fear the Lord and shun evil, but a fool is hotheaded and yet feels secure.” When I see this I believe both scriptures are referencing keeping ourselves separate from and resisting evil, meaning not taking part in evil works.

The bible also says in Proverbs 28:1, “
The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, But the righteous are bold as a lion.” Verse two states, “By the transgression of a land many are its princes, But by a man of understanding and knowledge, so it endures.”  Because of our nation's transgressions many of our representatives have gotten haughty with power, but if we will seek understanding and knowledge, which come from God, I believe our nation will endure!
"www.trunews.com", "propheticinfowars.com", "infowars.com" , besides youtube are some info. sources still available before they shut them down.

I don't really know anything about those sources specifically, but being aware of the news is a good thing as long as we remember to take our thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ and that we are being built up in the Word so that we can view the news in a balanced way. God will reveal His will to you as you read His word, write down your worries, quiet your mind, fix your eyes on Him and write what you believe He is saying to you. You can then compare your writings to scripture and consult with Biblically sound counselors. God will give you peace when you walk in His will. If you haven't read Dr. Mark Virkler's book 4 Keys to Hearing God's Voice
 I would highly recommend it! Read it two or three times if necessary, until you feel confident that you are able to hear from God.

In closing, I was reading Dale Cresap's post “Worry?which brings me to a scripture I believe we all should read from time to time:

Luke 12
22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?
27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! 29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

Seek His kingdom. When you are in His will it does not matter what your physical location is.



Hope this answers your questions and gives you encouragement! God bless!

  1. Optimism beats pessimism any day. My Dad has a framed quote in his office that reads "Leadership is automatically transferred to those who remain optimistic." You are truly a leader Juli!
