|HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD! and THANKS to MARTIN LUTHER!|
It is October 31, year of our Lord 2016 . . . and
on the Hebrew calendar today is the 29th of Tishrei 5777.
For my family it is the birth anniversary of Richard Clark Lindsay, born on
October 31, 1905. I called him 'Dad'.
During his time on Earth, Dad didn't know of our family's ancestral connection, (through my mother's line), to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He passed into the presence of God in October of 1990, and has known the truth since then.
Also on this date, God mightily used a man to shift the history of the western world. In Wittenburg, Germany, a monk named Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the door of his church, and challenged the Goliath of his time - the Roman Catholic Church. Many divine interventions followed, and over time the Protestant Reformation spread throughout Europe.
In 1776 the American Colonies declared themselves independent of Great Britain. To the biblical and historical foundation of faith and understanding of the Founding Fathers was added the courage and moral strength of men like Patrick Henry who boldly proclaimed to the group gathered at St. John's Henrico Parish Church in Richmond, Virginia. He argued for the raising of a militia that day.
Many years later, this writer remembers the awe that gripped her as she stood outside that church imagining the scene. The men there had inherited the same legacy of faith and courage which had gripped Martin Luther several hundred years before.
They celebrated the freedom of the individual and of families under the direct authority of God, Himself.
So today as we prepare ourselves, our families and communities for the Presidential election of 2016, may God grant us the grace to humble ourselves, to pray, to seek His face, to confess and turn away from our sins. As we follow this ancient wisdom and remedy, the divine answer WILL come, and we will as free men and women, take the steps necessary to cleanse and restore our beloved nation.
In Yeshua/Jesus's holy Name, amen!
