The Need of Every Nation January 16, 2023

1906-29 The Need of Our Nation SLIDE-320x320

Truth transcends all language, time, and cultural bounds. There are no social, moral, economic, or political solutions to a spiritual problem. Therefore, the only hope of a nation is in what God can do, and the need of every nation is praying Christians.

This may be one of the most politically tumultuous times in modern history. There are many things totally out of our control that are threatening to undo our way of life, especially in America. So what is it that our nation needs most? Praying Christians.

This is not the same as Christian people who sometimes pray; every nation needs believers who can get ahold of Heaven for their own lives, families, churches, and nation. Unfortunately, there are very few such believers.

James 5:16 reminds us that “…the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” This year, will you determine to be the praying Christian that your country needs? Will you seek to please the Lord in all things this year?

The Need of Every Nation Bible App Plan

To encourage you in this area, we have created The Need of Every Nation Bible App plan. It is a five-day plan with key scriptures, devotional content, and personal application. One nice feature of these plans is that you can study through them with your friends/family/church. Encourage others to join you along the way! You can view the instructions here.

We look at current events and get the sense that our nation is coming apart at the seams. The foundations are shaking. What are we to do? The need of our nation is the need of every one of our lives—we must “have faith in God”(Mark 11:22). Begin seeking Him by faith today!

The ruins of the Castle of the Servant in Jordan. The historian Josephus wrote that the dynasty of Tobiah built a castle on the east side of the Jordan River, in Ammon. He specifically wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews about the carved "beasts of gigantic size" visible here on the left corner of the structure. The beasts on the right side are not as well-preserved. The structure dates to the centuries after Nehemiah, however it shows the power and prestige of this family of "servants."

The Mountain of the House, also known as the Temple Mount, with the Mount of Olives in the background.
Some of the steps in the foreground date from the Second Temple period, and would have been the steps Jesus ascended. Archeologists have uncovered around 300 baptismal pools along the steps leading up to the Temple. They would be convenient for baptizing 3,000 people!
The Hebrew word ruakh can mean either spirit, wind, or breath. The Breath of God, the Spirit of God, and the Wind of God are all understood to be cognates.
